We had another visit from @[email protected] today. Beanie barked a bit more than he has previously but it'd been a while, and it was more of an "I'm excited" kind of thing and not "Oh god who is this!"
We played our standard game of Warhammer Underworlds, me playing Lady Harrow's Mournflight (the spirits), Kristina playing Myari's Purifiers (the elves) and @[email protected] playing The Grymwatch (the ghouls) for the first time. Despite a shocking start from @[email protected], he staged a hell of a comeback and the final score ended up with me on 11, him on 9, and Kristina on 8.
Another visit from @[email protected], another game of Warhammer Underworlds! Beanie was really good, we didn't even need to break out the treats to get him to stop barking.
The Underworlds game was very one-sided, Kristina won 12-7-7 and I only scored my last three glory at the VERY end of the whole game.
We had Ben over again for Beanie socialising and Warhammer Underworlds this afternoon! The Beanie socialising went extremely well, we gave him one single one of his calming pills this time and we can definitely go entirely without them next time.
The game of Warhammer Underworlds was SO GOOD, and INSANELY close! Ben won again with 13, but Kristina and I tied on 12! It seriously could have gone any way.
We played our first game of Warhammer Underworlds with the new Harrowdeep rules, and using the two warbands I most recently painted! It was SUPER fun and ended up being a draw at 11 each.
I went over to the lounge to pack things up and unsurprisingly Beanie was entirely amongst it.
For the first time since May of last year, I've actually fully completed a painting project! This is the Warhammer Underworlds warband The Grymwatch, they're a band of ghouls who are completely insane and think they're a noble band of knights but they're actually just, well, flesh-eating ghouls.
(Technically they're not actually fully completed quite yet, I still need to varnish them and then apply blood effects, but that's going to have to wait until it's a) not above 25˚C and b) not humid).
That was a productive day, I got ALL the rest of the Warhammer Underworlds warbands assembled! We have the Grymwatch, Kainan's Reapers, the Starblood Stalkers, and Khagra's Ravagers.
Of course, it remains to be seen how long it'll be before they're actually painted. 😛 (I should point out that this is more work I've done with my miniatures in the last two days than I'd previously done in the last seven months).
I'm excited to see what interesting things I can do with these little basing grass tufts and the "muddy ground" texture! Got a few ideas already, and definitely no lack of miniatures on which to use them. And I decided to pick up the Grymwatch having seen someone do a WAY cooler paint job with them than the standard one.
