Grandalf the not-so-alliterative

It's been a few weeks since my last post, not because I've not been doing stuff, but because this time of year gets very busy for me and I haven't made the time to update. The Alamo GT is this weekend, and I've been reviewing lists, working out finer scenario details, and preparing my body for a week of epic drinking. I've also been helping a friend play test lizard men for the event, and I convinced him that he needed a pair of Skink Priests with Beasts. Unfortunately I only had one prepared, so I grabbed a skink, some bits, and a concept!

I decided to sculpt him a wizard hat, to make it obvious he wasn't just a skink, and then for good measure added an obviously fake beard out of my leftover green stuff. I used a Skaven Plague monk bit to be a dispel scroll, and then added green stuff to a javelin to turn it into a staff.
I also stood him on a rock, because I've been doing a ton of Mierce stuff lately and standing on a rock is a recurring joke.
Painting remains, and the Alamo is just a few days away!!

Getting a sense of scale!

"How big is that?" It's the second most common question I get about Darklands. Well, it depends on the model! I've been asked it so many times, though, that I figured I'd just cut to the chase and take a bunch of photos of Darklands models standing next to other models.

Darklands initial battle report

So a few days ago, I sat down to play a serious game of Darklands, paying attention to the rules very carefully, and taking careful note of what went on so I could share it all. The results are below the jump.
