The Official Handbook of the NDC Universe
I've hardly got time to maintain one blog, so of course, I've created another one. I've been posting a lot of superhero related material this year, and the universe has become something of an obsession. At the same time I'm aware that a lot of people that follow this blog come here for more historical wargames content. So I figured the super-stuff should probably live in its own world.
|The first entry in the handbook|
The Handbook isn't just meant to be where I post games and conversions though. The idea is to document the universe that myself and my friend Dan have created, looking at the different characters, teams, worlds and cities we have designed. It is a long term project that will get updated when inspiration strikes. For a start it requires art work, which will deviate time away from painting. But it scratches another creative itch I have, and allows me to indulge another hobby.
Battle reports will still show up here as well though.

This week another group of hoplites - unarmoured this time.
And also 2 heroes to lead them all.
And also 2 heroes to lead them all.
Now I have some light infantry to paint and the last hero and the Athenians are finished. Onto the Spartans after that.

Athenian unit for Mortal Gods completed
I have to admit that not a lot of painting has happened lately. A mysterious virus attacked and by the time I recovered it was my daughter's birthday, which managed to last all weekend. However, I di manage to finish off my first unit for the upcoming release of Mortal Gods - some heavy Athenian hoplites.
My greys are finished too. backstory all sorted. From the alien race of the G'ysk, these little guys visit Earth regularly, abducting humans and performing degrading and humiliating experiments on them. They don't actually do this for any scientific reason, they're just amusing themselves. This is because these guys are Baserlites - the G'ysk name for their teenage hoods. Mostly the G'ysk don't really care about the Earth, but their teenagers just love screwing with humans.

Anglo-Danes and Martians to begin February
I managed to finish off some painting this week, despite being back at school and the mountain of work that is already beginning to pile up. Just enough time to post the results though.
I bought Mars Attacks a few years ago. I finally got around to painting some Martians so that I can use them for Clobberin' Time. I have a few Alien races lines up for my superverse.
|Anglo-Danish Warlord. He's hefting that double handed axe single-handedly. What a monster!|
|Axe-wielding loonies... errr I mean huscarles.|
|Right, some nice sensible spears for these guys.|
|And a further unit of hearthguard.|
|Ack Ack Ack!|
|Homemade SAGA Dice|
I bought some blank dice and printed some labels. Unfortunately the Saxon dice were just a bit too dark. They are visible, but not as clear as the Viking version. Luckily Dan accidentally bought two sets of Anglo-Saxon dice, so one of them is winging its way to me now.
I have another point of Anglo-Danes to paint this week, and 6 Hoplites to finish off my first unit for Mortal Gods. Then I have some Rebel Commandos to paint for Craig. Hopefully I can make some decent inroads into this pile over the next week.
