Cycle 4 game 2

The ninja Goliath strikes again!

The game last night was a rescue mission. The Goliath needed to save one of their captured members as they cannot afford to lose more of them.


The prisoner was placed in the centre, guarded by my chemthrower.

I got a full amount of sentries (7). Leader and champion (greyfox) were the reinforcements. My other champ was in recovery. I usually choose a placement where a select few guard the center and the other centries patrol in a loose circle around the center. Preferrably from one level up.


The Goliath chose to come in from the same edge.


Shotgun Polly is more occupied by her empty stomach than sentry duty.

So with the new rules (if we play them correctly) sentries are picked at random. This means not all sentries get to activate. Especially if the opposing team is fewer as my final sentry is activated after the final enemy has activated. Also there is no guarantee that the closest sentries are activated so it is possible to sneak away even if a sentry is standing right in front of you. This makes it highly viable to try and sneak out even if it looks near impossible.

The captive managed to free himself in the second turn (rolled a double 6) and then proceeded to tip toe towards his comrades.


After this my juve managed to be activated so I moved her in position to see the captive and the alarm was raised. I don’t get to activate my other sentries before next turn though so the Goliath had some time to remedy this. The juve got to shoot once at the captive, but missed. Next turn was mina and I moved my chemthrower up, but she failed to wound. Then my leader came in as a reinforcement and popped off a shot- missed and was pinned later on. Greyfox the champ came in, but I failed the roll of and my opponent placed her on the far side of the field. Even with sprint skill she was not able to catch up.

The Goliath managed to take out my juve and leader (both out cold so no biggie) and also shoot down one of my sentries (recovered). They were then able to get out of the board with little resistance. I lost one reputation (now I have 6) and my opponent gained 4 (now he has 9). He got an xtra xp for his escape and also for his leader (who did not take part). He has had great success with the sneak attack scenarios so my escher are convinced they are not really goliaths, but actually Delaque on steroids.


Found out that my Rioja buildings can be set up like this. If they had the same color they would look like a building split on the middle.



Rioja city 2

Another wine box…erm…building done. Trying not to go overboard with the posters. Its so fun slapping those on the piece, but as with much else in life; if its simple, quick and looks good- probably a good idea to hold back a bit!

Here’s how I do it. Nothing to it.

Google “poster warhammer” or similar. Print and cut.

Crumble and straighten 3-4 times so you get that sweet cloth like texture going by breaking the fibres.

Rip up if you want. Use glue stick and attach to piece.

Thats where Joey goes to chill in the hive.

Imperial guard gets no love down here.

You can also add some weathering with agrax shade.

Goliath been trying to write some obscenities, getting it all wrong as usual.

Its a simple build, but quite time consuming. Might make one more, but my final two eschers are calling for paint!


Found these at a hobbystore for reduced price (couple of euros each) I think they are intended for small plants of something…perfect for the underhive! They are quite heavy though…

Quick black-brown-red paintjob and it is basically ready! Might add some graffitti and posters.

Chem thrower

Another ganger done. This one carries a chem thrower and she debuted in the previous game.

The chem thrower doesn’t pin, but can potentially take out enemies with several wounds in one go.

Also started on another building, its a tough job getting the material but somebody’s gotta do it…

Cycle 4 game 1

Since none of our gangs were in recovery we decided to go for another standoff (gang fight). It was a complete carnage that lasted for five hours!

I had gotten a chem thrower for one of my gangers, took out one with it. Love using that template!

My building got playtime! That ganger had an advantageous spot and improved BS, but failed to take out any of my escher beyond pinning.

The baller in her usual no-cover, guns blazing positioning. Got knocked down from there eventually.

Autogunner Abby got fleshwounded early on. Did not have time to take more pictures, but the result was horrible for my opponent. 8 of his crew was taken out of action. Only one of mine- a champion. 4 of his got the serious injury result meaning a champ or leader has to take them to the doc. As he only had one champ left standing it meant three of his just died. I also captured one of his guys meaning the next game will be a desperate rescue mission…

On a side note: we now have gang war 2 supplement. Not surprisingly, it is incoherent and messy. New weapons, but no prices so we can’t actually equip them….what the shit?!

I want to use Joey here as hive scum, he has a heavy flamer (and a bat) but there is no cost for that weapon.


Rioja city!

Ahh, the pleasures of drinking wine from a box and the added bonus of crafting material:

Sturdy carboard on this, and the shape is already there.

I knew I wanted graffitti on it, but what to write? The names of my precious readers of course! A shout out is long overdue!

I hope I got all of you in there, if not give me a heads up! Thanks for reading!


Meet Greyfox, my new champion. A lasgun sniper who try to avoid the usual loud style of the Escher as she does not want to be spotted. With this in mind I went for a white and grey palette.

Some urban camo on her cloth. Ironically, she will probably stand out more than others in the rusty underhive.

I’m really happy with this one as I felt more in control than usual.

I was not originally going to add a champ, but my opponent did so I have to keep up. I also gave a chem thrower to a ganger so thats next for painting.

Cycle 3 game 2

Being on sentry duty is not very fun so the girls decide to get their drink on…

Doo-woppin’ in the underhive…

Little do they know that an unusually stealthy group of ninja goliaths are heading towards their territory to destroy their workshop

While it looks like he’s just hiding, Kruger here is also working on his glutes by intense clenching of buttcheeks…

The battlefield with the workshop in the center.

Useless sentry no 1




And 5

Pretty early on we had this situation where my ganger needed to roll a 2+ to spot- rolled a 1.

The goliath leader approaches with his hammer.


With the hammer and headbutt, the goliath takes his sweet time to demolish my workshop. 2 turns it takes him. My sentries see nothing, hear nothing…

The ninja goliaths start sneaking away…

And this is when my opponent breaks out the schnapps to celebrate.

Only at the very end one of my sentries are able to spot the enemy and fires off a shot. She misses.

The escher leader returns from her shopping to find the smashed workshop. The girls on sentry duty have already put their story together: the Delaque did it!

Casting pt 1

So this is my first attempt at casting an escher mini from milliput using bluestuff. It looks more like a carbon-frozen han solo. The problem here is that I’ve glued all my eschers. First tip: Don’t glue them. The arms and weapons will be in the way.

New tactic: separate casts:

I do not think this will be optimal, but what the hell, its part of the learning!

Parts like these should turn out well i think. Stay tuned for the results!
