sorry to hear about your back pyro, thats gotta suck.


The inflamation was what really crippled me but i got some heavy duty anti-inflamatories and it feels much better. Im just waiting on some new washed to arrive then im going to get painting.

I would've preferred to have to create a character with a blunderbuss that way we could work on our hailfire gun conversions. regular blunderbuss without command is too restricting IMO. like I said earlier I paint all my blunderbuss the same and my GH entry is likely to look exactly the same.


I think a single blunderbuss character would have been wayy to constricting. For those of us that only have original models we would only have been able to bling up the base a bit and we would have no chance of doing well in the competition at all. If there was a command group included then it would have been all about the command and no one would pay attention to the other 2 models needed to build up the rank. This way command group is avaialable for another competition.

I also paint all my blunderbuss the same way but since all the models are different they arent going to look exactly the same. Theres loads of different poses and hats to choose from if you are using original models and you can do whatever you want to each individual base so i think this competiton is more open that people might originally think.

Like Pyro, I think it's a good thing that we keep the command group out of this. It could easily be turned into 'another' standard bearer comp. But I can't really see the problem, you could easily put a commander in you unit, as long as you arm him appropriately. If he has something that comes to the definition of 'blunderbuss' and is on a 20mm base - no one can/will rule him out.

And a question - slightly off-topic - does anyone really use a command group in there BB-units? I think it's a waste of points really. So, to me it make perfect sense. A GH for 5 hard core troopers - just what we need after war machines, open cat. and sorcerer. Back to basics Wink

actually now that I think of it, I only use a musician in a blunderbuss unit.


well I think Ill try my hand at converting some plastic dwarfs for this competition then. Itll be fun hopefully it wont take long since Im pretty busy working on my bull centaur unit right now for the tournament this weekend.

I'm falling further behind... I haven't made any progress on mine in ~2 weeks. I got distracted with my 10th unit of Warriors and worked on those instead. After today we're away on vacation for the next 9 days... the deadline is closer in terms of available working hours than I'd like!!  Sick

Know excatly how you feel. Haven't done anything in weeks. First my back was killing my hobby, but now that it's way getting better, I always find myself watching Doctor Who (have bought series 1-3, now) - instead of painting (when I finally have that personal free hour, that family life allows you to have- maybe I should try combine painting and watching TV ..??!!).

- and now, the upcomming World Cup .... that isn't helpfull eighter.

I couldn't participate this time! Sad

I had two main problems: 1st time and 2nd no unpainted blunderbuss models!

But next time I could hopefully again attend at the GH!

I'm sure you will present great and worthy Chaos Dwarfs! Takes Hat off

You are a much better sculptor and painter compared to me - so imo you will manage that task in a very smooth and brilliant way! Cheers!

Ive had some pretty life altering stuff happen recently so hopefully i can get my models done. i finally got the paint i ordered so its just a matter of sitting down and finishing them off. But ive honestly lost all passion for it right now. Ive just got out of a 5 year relationship and its going to take a while to get over it.

I do that all the time.
I hope i will finish my models for this competition, especialy since i am quite a moody painter and if i dont have a feel to paint, and to paint a specyfic model, i dont.


Btw We've had a lot of chaos dwarfs as topic for GH, how about slaves, did we have greenskin units for GH?

We had 5 slaves a long while back, and a hobgobbo hero.  Maybe this is something to consider.

Focus on your passions and hobbies man... force yourself to do it, maybe watch LOTR while you're painting, etc. It'll help take your mind off other things a little.

Brutal!!  I'm so far behind... just got back from a week's vacation and before that I hadn't touched my models for the contest in ~10 days, so it's time to kick this project into high gear if I want to get it finished and painted in time!!
