Another game of Warhammer Underworlds tonight! I played my murder-ladies for the first time (Morgwaeth's Blade-coven) and sadly didn't win. I can definitely see the potential though, and there were some very unlucky dice rolls at a few critical points. They're pretty sneaky as befits aelves, keen to play a few more games with them.

Went over to a friend's place for a three-player game of Kill Team! It was Death Watch versus Chaos daemons versus my Astra Militarum. Very happy with how my guardsmen performed, though I didn't win. We called it after the fourth round, and the Death Watch won despite having only one model left. If we'd gone another round, though, the daemons would have overrun EVERYONE and definitely won. This was definitely the best-looking board we've ever played on, terrain-wise, despite my larger pieces only being undercoated with silver. My friend has been making lots of terrain, both 3D-printed and built from scratch, and all of his was fully painted, so it really felt excellent to play on. The only thing letting us down was that the Chaos daemons were all only base-coated. :P

We played another game of Warhammer Underworlds tonight, the vile Wurmspat versus Myari's Purifiers. I was coming first right up until the very last end phase, then Kristina scored two objectives to put her ahead by ONE glory, and she'd killed one of my fighters thus rendering six additional glory out of reach for me! I'm not sure how I feel about the Wurmspat's current deck, I think I want to make it a bit more mobile and combat-focused.

We went over to a friend's place today and played our first game of four-player Warhammer Underworlds! The two friends who'd never played it before ended up coming first and second, haha. I played the Wurmspat for the first time and lost horribly, the dice gods SHAT on me, both for rolling my own dice and having my successful attacks all defended against. Still had a lot of fun though!

More Warhammer Underworlds tonight, this time the two warbands from Direchasm, and Kristina won! Funnily enough, though, while the miniatures are fantastic, neither of us were particularly enthused by the actual play style of the warbands themselves, heh. I like casting spells (the Dread Pagent has none) and Kristina likes stabbing things from close range (the Purifiers are too delicate).

Kristina and I played Warhammer Underworlds tonight, and Beanie again decided he need to come up and help. I played The Dread Pageant for the first time, they're interesting! I miss the lack of magic-casting though. I managed to win by one single point, and it was purely luck... if Kristina HADN'T killed Glissete in the very last activation, it would have been a draw!

I've been taking proper photos of my Games Workshop miniatures and posting them to Flickr, mum saw them and emailed to say she was very impressed and that I hadn't lost my touch. She ALSO mentioned that she had photos of me when I was much younger having a Warhammer 40,000 battle with her on the dining room table! She brought them over and I scanned them in and cleaned them up, and oh boy, check out the youth and the serious expression. 😂 There was a date on the back of July 1996, so I was 13! I'm playing my Eldar, but I think I must have borrowed a friend's what looks like Orks because those miniatures at the far end of the table are definitely not mine!

Tonight Kristina and I played Warhammer Underworlds: Beastgrave again, this time with fully painted miniatures (🎉), and GOD DAMN it was a close game! She was smashing me by the middle of the 2nd round, my leader was out of action as were two others and I only had two left. I managed to pull off a win though, by one single glory point. Champion of the match goes to Karthaen who was upgraded to be an absolute BEAST and single-handedly took out three enemy fighters on his own.

We played Warhammer Underworlds: Beastgrave tonight and Kristina enjoyed it! Also Beanie wanted to come help.

And in the total opposite of American muscle cars, I've also done up a 1958 Morris Minor 1000. It weighs 680kg and puts out 171kW and 320Nm. 😂 I thought the setting for this screenshot was quintessentially British too: a beach with those little beach houses in the background, but it's overcast and feels like it's about to rain.
