Work In Progress: Bane Legions Muldo

This is going to be my Work in Progress post for my Bane Legions Muldo, I'm not going to do a separate post each and every time I add a highlight,  instead I'm going to update this post and pop it at the top of my post list whenever I get to a point that I think is worth showing.
Assembled and ready to go.

Games Night: Super Dungeon Explore.

And so another Tuesday night came and it was time to do battle once more.
We opted out of Hero Quest this week as we were starting to get a little burnt out with it and decided to have a couple of rounds of Super Dungeon Explore.

Money and Time and being a Dad.

Wargaming on a limited budget and with limited time can be quite frustrating. There are so many things that I want to collect, that I want to build and that I want to play. But alas due to time restraints and mainly a lack of  funding I have to pick and choose my way through the forest of Miniature Wargaming and stick to what I deem to be the best options. Sedition Wars in one such option and as mentioned in my last post, I'm having to sell a few things just so I can fund that.

To Make Ends Meet! It's gotta go!

As it states above I'm in need of funding in order to forward my hobby.
As such I've listed some of the extra items that I have on Ebay.

These are items that I bought on a whim or another member of our gaming Possy owns and we only need one in order to play. And, yeah, I say possy cuz we're cool, we all wear cowboy hats and loin cloths when we play D&D... anyhow I'm getting off point.

Only one needed to play.

Bane Legions, Muldo & Ulric

So a couple of days ago I got home from work to find a small package from Maelstrom Games waiting for me. I knew what it was and like an excited school boy I ripped the package open to find two wonderful miniatures waiting for me.

Nice blister packaging. Muldo is really stuffed in there.
When I made the order at Maelstrom they were out of stock but they have come into stock and reached my door in a little over a week. Which is pretty impressive, since I'm still waiting on an order to be filled for items I ordered over nine weeks ago at another online site, but more about that another day.
As per normal for Maelstrom, the mini's came in a well padded envolope and got to me in perfect condition.
Anyhow, I didn't get a chance to look at them in too much detail as stuff needed to be done. But now I've had em out and assembled them both, thought I would let you guys know what I think.

Bane Legions Galhwch Lladd Llaw

Many of you will probably know of Bane Legions and their fantastic range of resin miniatures. And with good reason, from what I have seen, heard and read they are probably the best mini's money can buy. I've been umming and arghing about their products for quite a while now, and all though some of it doesn't take my fancy for one reason or another, some of it really does get my attention. I've just ordered a a couple of their minis for my own collection and thought that I would go for something small, so I went for Ulric and Muldo, initially to use as bosses in a Hero Quest quest that I'm working on, but also because they are very nice evil looking mini's and I want to paint them. As soon as I get them, expect something that almost resembles a review.

Ulreg, he has a huge Axe.
Muldo, looks like something out of Resident Evil.
Anyhow, today while I was aimlessly wondering the world of the interweb, killing time and no doubt my brain, I came across this beast. Again, by Bane Legions, Galhwch Lladd Llaw. Oh my, Oh oh oh My.
Anthropomorphic Dragony Goodness.

Just looking at Galhwch I start to drool, the figure looks amazing. HUGE and amazing. Standing at 86mm its going to tower over any adventurer that happens across its path. And the fact that it's reptilian means that its man parts should be tucked neatly inside the base of tail, so there won't be any surprises for anyone who happens to look under his groin armour. Galhwch is a kind of cross bread boasting human proportions with a splash of Dragon thrown in for good measure. A huge frame nicely rounded off with some battered armour, and spikes. You can see from the pictures, it's just nice. I want him. 
Mimics the concept design perfectley.

Games Night: Hero Quest, Inn of Chaos

Once again we decided to play Hero Quest, mainly due to an oldie coming over to play and wanting to have a go of the MB Classic. But also because we just love it at the moment.
So anyhow we downloaded a quest pack from Ye Olde Inn and went to town..  or an Inn as it were...

Yup again, but we're still loving it.
And so we continue the adventures of,
Grundolf Jr, the Wizard.
Leaf Blower, the Elf.
Clodhopper, the Dwarf.
Vivian, the Barbarian.

The four Heroes walked along the dusty track as the sun started to set, slowly disappearing behind the canopy of ferns that lined the beaten road. It was still over a days walk to the city and this area was renowned for odd happenings after dusk had taken hold on the land. The heroes had encountered a travelling merchant earlier in the day, he and his kin had pointed them in the direction of an old Inn that was worked by a small family of country folk. And so our Heroes made their way towards the Inn, all looking forward to a hot meal and a soft bunk to help them pass the night.

Studio McVey Sedition Wars. Frontline Give Away.

Every now and then something comes along and it really gets me excited.
After looking on the Studio McVey site and the Sedition Wars Kickstarter page, this game is starting to become one of those things, and not just the game. The mini's available for Sedition Wars in the McVey store are pretty damn nice as well. But, what do you expect from Studio McVey though.

But, I want it now.
The Game Battle for Alabaster is due out at the end of the year, and in case you didn't know, Cool Mini or Not along with Studio McVey have started a Kickstarter in order to get the game released on time and up to the standard that both we and they expect.
