    Sons of Medusa – Badab Wars Chapter – A new project?

    Greetings again,

    Just as I thought I had enough on my plate I go and post something on a Facebook Group and then get an idea about a new project for the upcoming Warhammer World Doubles Weekend November 17/18th. However my brain wakes up the following day and I notice that it’s a WARHAMMER event NOT Warhammer 40k…. but still…..

    A friend of mine has built a few of the Badab Wars era Chapters and I’ve always been wanting to – just never found one I liked them blammo! Dan suggests the Mantis Warriors and I pull out the Imperial Armour Badab Wars Part II Book turn to page 64 and there they all are, in their lovely colour plate glory, but a further flick and I see the ‘Sons of Medusa’ another great looking Chapter, and a quick review of them and it’s them I choose.

    But as with all non-supported Chapters the lack of official shoulder pads/decals is a pain. Fear not though, a quick look on google and I find that the Bolter and Chainsword forum have a pretty impressive project – they have a series of Decals for a lot of chapters, here is the link.

    So I locate the Sons of Medusa and find two decals, the main issue being that I can only print these in black and not white like they are, I cannot freehand the number I would require, but what I could do is paint a white circle and then put the decal over the top, giving the impression of the white background.

    Here’s the link to the PDF that I think I shall be using.

    Of course to print these decals will require decal paper and an Ink-jet printer, I have neither and the latter is probably expensive to acquire just for a sheet of decals.

    So where was I, writing a follow up to this blog post….

    Oh yes, my friends eldest and I had just finished our lunch (I had the fat slob double burger thing – quite nice) and so after my hip flask purchase we ambled upstairs into the hall of miniatures.

    Mighty impressive I think and a touch of humour as well in places.

    Once again my lack of ‘I have a camera, let’s take lots of shots’ has caught me out here, but I took some (mainly Black Templar) and my friend took a lot more (see the Eldar Titan), so here goes the pictures in a nice gallery format.

    So what happened next?

    Well it was time to go to the Seminar ’40k – Designing the new rules’.

    War of the Rings – and how I started my interest in it.

    Some days my madness works it’s way through my pocket and into the hands of retailers.

    After my visit to Warhammer World I had my interest in Lord of the Rings Wargaming renewed and so was determined to give it a blast.
