This blog is mainly a hobby diary of an Irish gamer now abandoned in the frozen wastes of Finland. Before that I was stranded in Germany. I was there for a number of years and I was mainly involved in gaming in the Hamburg area. If you wish to contact me please do so via this address.
I have a tournament coming up in Kiel soon and I thought it high time to geteBaldur ready. I am not so sure if he is that effective a Warlock but there is only one way to find out. The tournament is an odd format, 42 points with three games of Mosh Pit. Also the armies can only include twelve models worth a maximum of twelve points that are not beasts or 'jacks. With Baldur I can make a Tier 4 list easily enough giving me some extra benefit. It's nothing to rock the battlefield with, just a slight points reduction and some useful turn one benefits. What will be good is the Roots of the Earth spell. Once I get into the zone it is almost impossible to get me out, especially on a feat turn. With some Druids along I can also push around some of my opponents models giving me an excellent chance to win via scenario.
Painting Baldur was fun. I referenced my old primal version and kept the colours somewhat similar. I like the contrast between the dark robes and the lighter orange brown clothing. The orange brown is simply Bestial Brown (GW) highlighted with Bleached Bone (GW). The stone work on the sword also came out fairly well with the transition from light to dark working well in contrast to the glow of the runes. I am considering adding the glow to the runes on the Celestial Fulcrum once I get back to finishing it. I have a few more models to finish up soon, especially Megalith as I need hom for the tournament!
