The line-up of the Most Merry!

Merry Mayhem is a 3 game 1 day tournament in Madison, WI.  It's a great time with a lot of merry fellows and is run by THE MERRIEST - Conesy.  The picture above was 7 of the most merry that we cheered on and Mrs. Conesy made the final choice.  Our very own Mike Gerold won the most Merry for his amazing tree and present costume complete with working lights and Christmas music.

Alarielle for Merry Mayhem


Twas the month before (Merry) Mayhem and across the hobby mat,
the green stuff was bending and the paint brush went splat. 
I in my glowing snow hat had dreams,
that Alarielle the radiant cast dwellers and beams.

Ask the Bastards #14

This installment is a response to Jason T's comments on the Malekith's Mindrazors Post. The team was dipped.


I've always wanted to try dipping and have a few Qs for ya:
1) From what I've read the MinWax line of stains is a popular dip choice. What did you use for your dip?
2) Again, only from other sources, I've read that highlighting over dip can be difficult to the point of not working. Yours look really nice. Do you feel the highlights applied differently or worked differently over the dip?
3) Did you actually dip the models or did you brush it on?

Pro Painted #4

Going through my backlog of old turds, let's do it! Click here for previous installments in the Pro Painted series!

Just to reiterate my point with these posts. I am not making fun of poorly painted models (we all have to start somewhere). I am making fun of poorly painted models some boner has labeled as "pro painted" in a pathetic attempt to boost its auction value. (key difference)

That green metallic kneepad is bringing back the memories. I used that color on every model I painted from 1994 to 1996! (Also, sweet freehand shield blobs)

Rogers' Hobby Desk - Episode 113

Here is a look at what I've been up to as described in Episode 113 of Point Hammered.

Ask the Bastards #13

This installment's question comes from John G:


I was searching for the bases you guys use for many of your armies (the ones without the beveled edges), since I really like the look. I found on a previous post that you recommend Litko bases. I was wondering if any of you have used their "magnetic bottom" bases? If you have used them, how did you find them? Were they strong enough to stick to a magnetic sheet if I put basing material over top of the sheet? Could they hold metal models? (redoing my mono daemons of khorne finally, and I have a lot of 5th ed bloodletters). Do you recommend the magnetic material or do you think it is better to just get their basic wooden laser-cut bases and add my own rare-earth magnets to the bottom instead? Let me know what you think!

Both Jayjack and Domus step up to help John out!

Parade of Banners - Bretonnia

I didn't really find much for banners in the old Bret book. A few pennants here and there, but no big page of 'em. I did find this, though, which gave me a giggle for some reason.


Sadly, no banners were found in the old Empire or Wood elf books, so this is the last installment of Parade of Banners!
