After the Chaos Space Marines got ruined by a new can of spray paint last month, I've been focusing on painting a unit of Thousand Sons, sprayed years ago.

A few days ago, I visited my buddy Andreas, and put the Marines in a box filled with a concentrated soap called Simple Green. We left them in the liquid for three days. Yesterday, we took them out of the box and tried scrubbing with an old toothbrush.

Lo and behold, the grainy undercoat came right off! Fantastic!! The best part is that Simple Green is bio-degradable, non-toxic and can be used over and over! If only they sold the stuff in our country...

Match of the day: Dark Elf vs Khemri

Today, I'm playing my first game with my new Blood Bowl team, the Brides of Khaine. I am playing against my friend Bjørn, and his Khemri team Kommunistpartiet.

I don't have much in the way of skills nor re-rolls, so I will have to depend on my superior mobility (higher movement and agility) to win this match. We played a test match (at 1200k gp) a few weeks ago, which ended 2-2 after some lucky breaks for me. Those Tomb Guards are tough cookies, especially when they get hold of the ball!

Update: I lost the game 0-1. Only two re-rolls and no re-roll skills assured that important moves went wrong for me. Kudos to Bjørn for playing very well in the match, and scoring with a Skeleton!
