Wonder Woman

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.

Boors Warriors

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.

Ancestral Zeppelins

I do like these Titan Forge Ancestral Zeppelins. I have only had the opportunity to use one in games so far.

At some stage, when the Teutonic Knights get their second (and third?) unit of Luftlancers, I will get the opportunity to field two or even three.

Mr Steinbergs US Navy will also be getting some Rocketeers and Copters soon so they may even be first to go up against multiple zeppelins.

These have been armed with Twin-Linked Heavy Machine Guns and some nice big bombs.

I do use my custom mdf flying bases with nice long clear plastic rod to have them fly at a decent height.
