Hobby Journal: Blood bowl Orks & Pre Heresy Word Bearers

Since i finished my Skaven blood bowl team i wanted to keep the momentum going with my Blood Bowl teams so up next was the Ork team that i got with the BB starter box. I have said before that these Ork models are some of my favourite and i'm looking forward to painting them.


I kept the same colours that's shown on the box. I like the Gouged Eye uniforms and armour colour. The skin is something i'm only satisfied with now because i use a lot of old paints but i bought waagh flesh for the basecoat and followed a nuln oil wash. I was then just adding goblin green but i'm going to change that from now on

I was wanting to painting something different and i remembered i had a lot of marines left to paint. since i was painting the red on the Orks armour i decided to paint the pre heresy Word Bearers. Im only painting one for now because i was recording it for a painting tutorial for my YouTube channel. What i like painting a marine is once the Mephiston Red base on instead of just plastering the model with a wash, i only apply it in and recess of the armour

Hobby Journal: Rebasing my Skaven Zombies


How long has Age of Sigmar been out? Well over a year now and i still haven't got around to rebasing any units for my Skaven army. I have done 3 or 4 hero models but i wanted to get the whole army on round bases and im starting with my Zombie Skaven unit. So after searching on Ebay i was able to get 50 25mm round bases for a little under €5 (inc delivery).


The Skaven zombies are models from the old Island of Blood starter set so they were on the old square slotta bases. I had to be really careful when cutting the plastic part that's attached to the feet because their feet are really small and its easy to cut the feet straight off.



I love it that Age of Sigmar models are on round bases now. It gives you a chance to make every model that's part of a unit stand out instead of being lost in the old rank and file formation from Warhammer Fantasy

Here is the video version i did for my YouTube channel enjoy and thanks for checking this out!

50 Point Warband lists: Clan Eshin


I came up with 3 warband lists for Skaven's Clan Eshin using the new skirmish rules for Age Of Sigmar. I wanted to make the list more towards the fluff rather than make a powerful list.

List 1: Standard Eshin warband

1 Death runner: 24 pts
10 Night Runners: 20pts
6 Giant Rats: 6pts
There are only two choices in the rule book for Clan Eshin specifically, Death Runner (hero choice) and night runners. So instead of the warband consisting of just two units i thought the giant rats would be a nice fit for Eshin.
List 2: Eshin Muscle  

1 Death runner: 24 pts
1 Rat Ogor: 12 pts
7 Night Runners: 14pts
This list i wanted to go back to what the Eshin Warband was like in the Mordheim game setting. Clan Eshin had a lot more options then and one of them was the rat ogor. To fit the big guy in i had to take out 3 night runners to even the points to 50.

List 3: Mordheim Power

1 Grey Seer: 24 pts
1 Rat Ogor: 12 pts
7 Night Runners: 14pts

This list is Mordheim all the way! But it does have a bit of everything. Swapped the Death Runner out for Grey Seer. I'm not sure how this mix will play in the game yet but i really like it. Three different units with their own way to work on the battlefield.

Hopefully you like these list i made. I didn't make power list but more fun/themed list. I will be making more in the future so keep an eye out!

Spunge's Skaven Blood Bowl Team



I finally got around to finishing my Skaven blood bowl. I absolutely love these models!

I really want to get another box of these in the future because theses look like they can be converted to clanrats, stormvermin and all the Gutter Runners need are some weapons and a decent base!




   








Now i just gotta paint the Orc and Human team! But i have already started on the orcs so stay tuned for more!

Spunge Murphy's Audio Cast Ep2

Hey there!
I listen to a lot of podcasts. A lot more than i listen to music on my ipod and i love relaxing and escaping with some good tunes!
So i thought why not have a go at doing my own? And thus Spunge Murphy's Audio Cast was born! The topics i will be talking about will be Warhammer, tv/movies, comic books, college life and more! Wrestling was going to be on it aswell but that ended up as its own episodes called Super Wrestle Bros and joined by a friend of mine.
I'm trying to release on at least every two weeks and have clips released on my YouTube channel so make sure to check it out on itunes!
And if you have any questions for the podcast make sure to let me know!

My 5 Favourite Warhammer Ebay buys


Ah ebay i love you! But my paypal account does not. I usually try to check ebay once a week to see if any really good auctions manage to slip under every ones radar and swoop in with a cheeky bid. It doesn't happen to often but sometimes i can get stuff really cheap.

So here is my 5 favourite buys off ebay so far

Old army books


I just can't let go of the old world yet! It will always be with us! And the old world books have so much lore, history and information that is great for resourcing ideas for armies and models.
The most recent books i picked up were dark elves, orcs & goblins, lizardmen and the empire for €12.64 combined. All were paperback and 7th edition or lower except the Empire book that was the hard back 8th edition book.

Space Marine
Commander and Command Squad



This is probably one of the best buys i have had. Both were from the same seller and got both really cheap. I think i was the only bidder on both items and it feels like they slipped under everyone's radar! Managed to get both at a nice price of €10! Bargin or what!

TT Combat Rift Gates
Time for some scenery! TT Combat has tons of MDF scenery pieces and i didn't know it until i found their rift gates. This wasn't an auction but both were cheap at €9.34 for both rift gates. They are smaller than the GW realm gates but they are a nice alternative.

Skaven Deathrunners

As a Skaven guy i LOVE these models! And i managed to pick up the set of two for just €7! The price of these has gone up on ebay recently and there are a lot less of these up for sale. These 2 models are from the Warhammer Quest bow but for some reason GW has released some of the models separately on there site and the Deathrunners aren't sold seperate yet! AARRGGHH! Shakes fist!

Goblin Spider Riders


I have been trying to get Goblin spider riders for song long! They were never going cheap and eventually i paid €20 for some. But i did get 16 of them! They are from the old battle of skull pass starter set. More pricey than the other stuff but for 16 of them i don't think i would have got a better price anytime soon!


Here's to many more ebay finds at cheap prices! Found some good stuff on ebay? Make sure to let me know!

Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire The Sepulchral Guard!


Wow what a day it has been! We had live video  from warhammer tv showing the Kharadron Overlords and their battletome but first they showed a new video announcing the newest faction to Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire the The Sepulchral Guard!!
 


                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
They are pretty amazing looking and are going to look great leading in the skeleton hordes to battle.
And these are the first models for Grand Alliance Death since Age of Sigmar began. If you think about it the only stand alone skeleton model we have from GW is the Wight King. The Grave Guard kinda stand out from normal skeletons but none of them look like individual characters. Im really looking to this release! Hopefully not too late in the year but GW's releases have been on rapid fire the last year so maybe the whole Shadespire release could be sooner than we hope for

Ebay Loot: Big Bad Goblin Spider Riders



Straight to the point. 15 goblin spider riders for €20 including delivery. How am i ment to pass that by!

Remember the Battle of skull pass starter box that came out for old 7th edition warhammer? It was dwarfs and goblins. I managed to get the dwarf half of the set but i really wish i had gotten the goblin half as well. Trying to get that box on ebay cost a pretty penny but i always kept an eye out for the goblin stuff.

 These guys were painted pretty bad when they arrived but i gave them a good stripping and they cleaned up nicely. The only thing i messed up with was i accidently snapped off one or two legs off.


I managed to get the guy to throw in a goblin boss as a bonus. Sweet! Hes a nice little guy and it's good to have a leader guy to go with my small goblin group.

They were all on bases and i would like to get them on some ovals eventually. Unless i find some cheap bases on ebay its not going to be any time soon unfortunately

Hobby Journal: WIP skavenblight scramblers

Oh god it feels like its been ages since i had a chance to work a bit more on this team. Second term of college and life is just punching the spare time i have right in the stomach.
It annoys me that i get so much done and can't come back to them for a while. I miss the hobby desk
:(


 I was stuck on what colour duo to go with for the gutter runners so i
