Mordheim 2022 Invitational: Choir Member

Into the City of the Damned once more!

With Mordheim 2022 rapidly approaching, I decided that I wanted to use my Sisters of Sigmar warband from Mordheim 2019. With this in mind, I wanted to convert a new model to join the warband. Looking over some of Games Workshop’s more recent releases, I realized the vampire from the Exiled Dead warband for Warhammer Underworlds would be a good fit. The model’s tall stature and trench coat reminded me of Alexander Winberg’s Sisters of Sigmar warband, the Choir, a faction of the Sisterhood who stands guard to someone deep within an oubliette within the sanctums of the Rock. For my 2019 warband, I actually converted a member of the Choir, following Alex’s design, and felt it would be neat to create another!

Dragged into Turbolasers Episode 96 - Blood Bowl Sevens


In this episode we are joined by our friend Brad Smith to talk about our most recent experience playing Blood Bowl. We tried to play Blood Bowl in various forms over the years, particularly after the re-releases in 1996 and 2020, along with a stint playing Blitz Bowl. This time we played Sevens, a variant of Blood Bowl that uses a smaller pitch and less players, but largely uses the core Blood Bowl rules. We chat about how easy the variant is to play and how long games take, along with our ultimate opinion of Sevens.

Painting: Ana Polanšćak Custodian Wraith

The Shadow at the Bottom of the World.

As Halloween draws near, I decided it might be fun to paint a creepy model. After looking through my collection, I found some of Ana Polanšćak’s sculpts from her first Kickstarter (Harwood Hobbies Kickstarter). In the past I painted one of her Blood Fiends and Skull Familiars, along with a small gargoyle. I found the skull-headed ghost she created, a custodian wraith, and decided it would be ideal to paint to celebrate the season!

For the seventh episode of 32, Eric Wier and Alexander Winberg talk about what they have been working on in the hobby and touch on the upcoming 28 project, SKULLS. The main topic of the episode is reviewing a miniature game of vehicular mayhem: Gaslands: Refueled. They talk about how the game plays, along with how easy it is to pick up, even for non-miniature gamers. They also touch on converting toy cars to fit the post-apocalyptic theme of the game.
