Brad Experiments with New Media (Scibor Dwarves) and Shudders at an Abomination

I know I am late here but Happy Holidays everyone! The misses and I got away for a long weekend and I have to say I did absolutely no hobby and it was really nice. Unfortunately I have a to do list a mile long and an army to paint in less than three weeks. YIKES!

I did spend the last two days play testing my orcs and furiously puttying and priming models. Everything is now done and primed except for the chariot (I dropped my mage), pump wagons, and standards to go on the empty poles my standard bearers are carrying around. Lots to do.

I have been messing around with some new technology for 2011 and here is my first attempt at a video (technology I hope to use to create battle reports next year).

I also want to take a look at the new Hell Pitt Abomb...



For all the wonderful models in the new skaven range I have to say that I do not like this one. I got my paws on the sprues yesterday for a bit and while the detailing is nice I just think the model looks meh when put together. The doom flayer and the other new models look ace though. Something about the abomb... Yuck... Maybe that is the point but if it is I am not wowed into telling myself that I want to have one.

The MPG version up on ebay though does make me go "WOW!!!" Not sure why cuz it is also ugly as sin but I really do enjoy this resin version to the official GW one.



I hope you have a happy, safe, and warm New Years. God Bless... Real army shots and battle reports coming very soon.

All the best.

  1. Anyone know why the video is blurry when the images I used were crystal clear? Should I post this on Youtube or just continue to go straight through the blog?

  2. There is probably going to be some compression of the file happening. You will most likely get it on YouTube as well, but there might be an HD option as well.

  3. Nice going there. I agree with you about the Abomination. Other people's interpretations have been better than that mess.

    Having said that; with so many little gribbly bits, you could kit bash a heap of stuff from the sprues!

    PS> What are you using video wise? I always had success with Camtasia for voice/vid presentations.
