Ask the Bastards #9

A reader named Thomas has a question about Apoxie Sculpt in this installment!

I've done some research using google about whether to use protection gloves or not, when I sculpt with epoxy clays. (Because of chemicals)

Since you guys have a lot of experience using It, would you recommend using gloves or not? Have any of you had allergic reactions, or have I just read rumours?

An informal poll of the Bastards indicated a split decision. Three used gloves while five did not.

Paca 2015 - Bonus Fortitude Unit Examination

The Rodge emailed the Paca packets out last night.  Got me excited!

After some discussion with folks I thought I would go out and make a list of what generated fortitude at Paca (that normally does not).

Here are the Rule additions in play;
The following unit generates two positive Fortitude points:
Giants (any kind)
   Only when standing. A Fallen Giant temporarily generates 0 Fortitude
**every army can take DoW Giants per the special rules

The following units generate one positive Fortitude point:
Army General
Battle Standard Bearer
Any unit containing a Standard
Any core unit containing a champion, but only if that unit does not have access to a Standard
Any Monster that does not have a ward save or regeneration
    (including Monsters being ridden by some prick

High Elf Display Board

I'm back from the dead with a post detailing how I went about building a High Elf Display Board for a friend.  This project had some interesting challenges as the High Elf Army was already painted (by someone else) which meant I had a color scheme to match (something that I'm horrible at).  Also the army was totally based so I attempted to make the board fit the style of the resin bases used in the army.  Finally, and most fun, was that there would be multiple Phoenix in the army which needed to flying above the board.  Here's how the army looked on the display board at Buckeye Battles this year.
