Battle Masters!

After a pretty lazy Sunday morning the kids decided it was time to pull out a household favourite.. It was time to play some Battle Masters! 
My son decided to play the forces of evil and commanded the Army mixed with Chaos, Orcs, Goblins and Beastmen. Leaving my Daughter to command the "the nice goodies" (The Empire).

The black beast eagerly watches on awaiting its next victim.

The Cannon proved to be the unit of the game. Bouncing off many evil heads (and thus inflicting a wound) on its way to destroying an impressive 4 units before it met its demise by some Champions of Chaos.
A close finish saw the Evil army push across the river and attack the last 2 units from the Empire. In a final struggle the Halberdiers and Crossbowman were able to hold off and defeat the last of the vile invaders and return home victorious.

It was an awesome way to fill the afternoon.

I've also been adding a few bits and pieces to my Chaos Space Marines for Warhammer 40k. I went to a local Cash Converters (pawn shop) looking for a Nintendo Gamecube controller, when i stumbled across an exciting find. There in the window, still in shrink-wrap was a copy of Dark Vengeance, the current box set for Warhammer 40k. Here in Australia this sells for $165 so I was very quick to grab this one which was selling fore a mere $30. Happy days! First thing I've started on is the Helbrute, an awesome looking model which i'm eager to paint and add to the horde! 

A bit of green stuff on this bad boy then a coat of paint and he'll be ready to unleash hell!
