Adeptus Titanicus: Questoris Knight Banner

A few months ago I tried to paint my first Knight for Adeptus Titanicus, but it looked so crappy that it went to the pile of shame and I didn't touch it until last week. A friend of mine asked me about Adeptus Titanicus and except the Reaver and some buildings, I couldn't show much. Well, of course, there were the boxes I bought a year ago and the crappy Knight.

The same evening I started to paint my Knight. This time in a way I wouldn't be ashamed of. *laugh*
I hope you like them and now that I've tasted blood there will be more of Adeptus Titanicus in the next weeks.

Blitz Bowl: Building a Stadium / Pitch - Finished! (Part III)

This is my final version of a 3D Blitz Bowl pitch. It is based on the original gaming board and the game itself a simpler version of good old Blood Bowl. I gave posters, banners and floor writing a try, but it didn't work out and therefore I kept the pitch simple.

Here are two possible versions of the pitch with two trap doors. The pillars are also moveable, so the games shouldn't get boring too fast. In any case, I am thrilled for the first games.

And now it is time to zoom in and give it a better look...

Blitz Bowl: Building a Stadium / Pitch - Part II

After the initial preparations of Part One everything was ready to be glued together and to get a black primer on it. For more details, I also bought some barrels, chests and also made two ladders from toothpicks and wooden sticks.

Looks good so far...

Blitz Bowl: Building a Stadium / Pitch - Part I

Blitz Bowl is such a cool game and that's why I want to build a stadium for it. Here is a rough sketch of how the stadium will look like. I'll try to create a dungeon pit in which the teams battle each other.

My first attempt on the stone walls was not too convincing. Therefore, I tried something different... Cutting styrofoam, grinding/shaking with real stones and there you have perfect little foam rocks for the walls.

Then I went to a DIY store and bought a wooden crate. Except for the height, the crate has just the right size (60 x 40 cm). After some hard work and sweat, I could also correct that (from 24 cm to 8 cm). Then I started to glue the tiles on the ground...

Next up are the stone walls...

A little time off

I went off the grid for a few weeks and travelled to Japan (again). I had a wonderful time there, visited a lot of places and met nice people. But that's not all! I also bought some nice models (Space Marine Heroes Series 2) and tools...
