WEG Star Wars - Darth Vader, 501st Stormtroopers & Han Solo

It's been all go the last few days painting the WEG goodies I've been getting in trades/sales, as it's all been coming in piecemeal I've been choosing bits to paint almost at random.

But I have finished a few bits and I'm quite pleased with them, gaming standard is the key here for not going crazy painting a smaller scale then most my chosen Sci Fi (Too be fair though I have done alot of 6mm, 15mm and 20mm so you'd think I be used to painting small by now eh?)

Dark Future: Battle Report - Anarchy Cult Vs Panzerheads

So happy St Georges day everyone! and what a better way to celebrate it then get a 25+ year game out and kill people eh?

Ruleset used was the modified ''Tournament Rules'', with a extra helping of ''If it's fun then do it''

Modified standard rules included:

 Double road sections
Rolling roads (Once the lead car gets 1 whole section ahead the back section gets removed, meaning no more then 3 section deployed at one time)
More Cars (And a bike)
Turning/changing direction

Macmillan Cancer Support

If you remember back in September 2014 Popevaderii aka Michael Wieloch a member of our wonderful community was fund raising for Charity by doing a sponsored London to Brighton bike ride.

You can view the related Blog post HERE 

Now it seems the crazy man is up to his old tricks again and will be doing both Moonrides in 2015 to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support. Most of us at one point in our lives will either know someone with Cancer or forbid have it ourselves, so please be generous

If you wish to donate to a rather wonderful cause and rather nice chap please do so, for more information and how to donate please go to his Justgiving page HERE .

WEG Star Wars - The Return of the Empire Strikes Back

“A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...” 

“For over a thousand generations, the Jedi Knights were the guardians of peace & justice in the Old Republic. Before the dark times... before the Empire. A young Jedi named Darth Vader, who was a pupil of mine until he turned to evil, helped the Empire hunt down & destroy the Jedi Knights. Vader was seduced by the dark side of the Force.”

And now Chico's going to destroy all the fluff and background you love for his own needs by gaming/playing with them in the ways I feel.. so none of this ''Such and Such was on Planet X, so they couldn't be on Planet Y and battle'' It'll all be in a alternative universe much like my Judge Dredd games/settings

The Endowment Effect

Endowment Effect

So I was reading an interesting article the other day about collecting and the reasons why, is it love? Guilt? or Pleasure?

While it was rather a good read indeed and had a direct relation to are Oldhammer hobby it was the side article called The endowment effect that really hit the button.

For those which don't know this here is the definition:

''The endowment effect (also known as divestiture aversion) is the hypothesis that people ascribe more value to things merely because they own them''

It goes along way to explain why there are crazy asking prices for junk on eBay/Forums/Trade Groups. It just isn't greed but Human nature to why we place more value on are own items

I'm sure we have all done it? You just picked up that OOP figure for the lower end of the cost valuation, and now you own it you start valuing it and the higher end.

I bet you never thought you'd see something like this posted on OoaB eh? Not to worry the next posts will be painted toys.. woot!

I'd recommend having a quick read up on this though if you have a spare 5mins on the bog :)

Necromunda: Battle Report - Redemptionists Vs Scavvies

Inquisitor Scythe watched as the settlement of Burnitdown prepared for the wave of mutant scum about to crash against their walls. The Pit Slave revolt had weakened the Holy Cult and made a hole in the walls for the dregs to assail though... Ohh today there will be blood and fire.. yes the fire shall cleanse!

Well following on from the last Battle Report (Seen HERE) the settlement is now under seige from a gang of Mutants and it's now looking for the weakened Redemptionists.

As such all Bottletest are on hold until 50% Cas rather then the normal 25%

Space Skaven/Scavvy Mutant WIP

I hate Sundays they are bloody boring, so I sat at the hobby desk and thought about painting. Plenty of projects to finish or even start heh. But no instead I decided to have a dig in the stack of boxes I bought on a whim or on the off chance I'll use them. 

You know the type of boxes, the Mantic crazy boxes or the blisters of Reaper Bones, that type of often forgot about buy.

Well 10 miniatures later this Abhuman came into being:

Necromunda: Redemptionist Inquisitor & More Scavvies

So it's been a few days since the last post and that wasn't by choice, it was more down to fact what I had painted in the last few days I really wasn't happy with and ended up getting binned as a idea.

It's ok though I did get a few bits I'm happy with and in the next day or so should have another Battle Report up.

Necromunda: Battle Report - Redemptionists Vs Pit Slaves

Snarling Rat former Chief of the Spotted Dog Tribe now outcast Badskin heard rumours of a Pit Slave rebellion near the Redemptionist Output of Burnitdown. Maybe he can use it for his advantage and remove the Zealots from his holy sacred hive.

So today my and my other half managed to get a game in, it;s her fault as she mentioned I havn't used the scenery she bought me for my last birthday.. So Ha! Game time!

She took the Redemptions while I took a few Pit Slaves along with Snarling Rat one of my Badskins, As always we took what we liked rather then doing a Roster as it was played as a stand alone game
