I enjoyed using this Rogue Stars crew, a Golum, a Zoat, a robot, a Zykhee and an alien of some sort.
There is still no substitute for good armour in Rogue Stars, once a model takes damage, its effectiveness reduces very quickly. Apart from armour, the Difficult Target ability is the best defensive protection against incoming ranged attacks. For melee, Weapon Master is the equivalent. But of course Armour benefits a model from both ranged and melee attacks.
We will just keep playing with 300 points so we can tool up our crews that way.
I finished my TT Combat crane recently and it had its first game recently. I still need to glue some of the bits together but it held together okay for the game.
I also need to sort out the lifting mechanism as currently there is a bit too much string.
The long planned dock and warehouse terrain project may start to gather some more pace. With all of the old AT-43 containers I have, it should look pretty good if I can get going.
I also used a new TT Combat warehouse building, visible on the right, but more of that later.
This is pretty much most of the infantry for the Dragon Rampant Dwarf army.
As ever, there is still more to be painted up…
Fortunately, I only needed four of these stout chaps to finish off a twelve Dwarf infantry unit for my Dragon Rampant army.
I did not think I had enough to make a full 24 point army, but when I started getting them all in one place, I realised I had plenty.
These old Rackham Thermo Warriors are more reinforcements for the Tir-Na-Bor Dwarf Dragon Rampant army.
The paint jobs on these definitely fall in to my Bronze period. I seem to be painting everything with at least a little bronze somewhere.
I went to see Wonder Woman, I reckon the best of the recent DC movies. Being set in World War I rather than the present day made for a nice change.
Diana Prince, the Wonder Woman, is a bit on the indestructible side so the danger never really seems to bother her.
The No-Mans-Land scene was the best bit as she struggled to understand how a war can come to a grinding halt with no side wanting to advance. Of course Wonder Woman had never faced down machine gun nests before.
The ending was disappointing, too much CGI for the villain. The bad guy should have remained in his plain three piece suit as that would have been much more disturbing, massive power and an ordinary appearance.
Still it was good fun and much more enjoyable than Batman vs Superman.
For a week or so in May, the Dragon Rampant group on Fakebook ran a painting challenge, which was to simply pick a few models and get them done in seven days. A bit of encouragement like that always helps me to get my butt in gear, so I decided to actually finish of a few old Rackham Tir-Na-Bor dwarfs to bring my Dragon Rampant units up to twelve models in each.
First up I painted six Boors to add to the six I was already using in Frostgrave.
Army Painter Strong Tone is then lavishly applied to the block painted models and the job is done.
Twelve of these make a four point Belicose foot unit for Dragon Rampant.
