This Saturday one of the cards participants in Blitzmania receive allows them to hire an ogre for their team. Well, seeing as Games Workshop hasn't released an ogre figure for Blood Bowl yet, I'm painting one!

Also, seeing as I won't have time to paint him tomorrow, I'm going to paint the whole figure tonight! Ladies and gentlemen, start your timers!
Actually not. Sadly, January contained no Mutant Chronicles madness aside from reading a book.
The month of January has been all about painting my Chaos Dwarf Blood Bowl team in anticipation for Blitzmania, the worldwide Blood Bowl league happening at independent games shops all 'round the world (more on that Tuesday or Wednesday).
However, my one foray into the Mutant Chronicles universe so far this year came when I picked up the third and final book in the Apostle of Insanity Trilogy: Dementia by Michael A. Stackpole.
The first book in the series was In Lunacy by William F. Wu: a cyberpunk romp that was very compelling, but laced with some eye-rolling catch-phrases ("Zowee!"). Overall I liked the first book a lot, and if you own the first edition of Warzone you'll notice that most of the pictures in the book follow the story of the novel. The second book was Frenzy by John-Allen Price: a military adventure with some cringe-worthy derogatory terms for employees of the Mishima corporation, and plenty of Capitol Hoo-Rah! Less enjoyable than Mr. Wu's venture.
Anyway, I'm actually just halfway through Dementia (what a statement!), and I'm enjoying it. Stackpole is so far the most talented out of the three, and it's a neat little spy novel, and will hopefully wrap-up the trilogy nicely. I will admit, despite the pulp nature of the trilogy, I'm really drawn in to what happens to Lorraine Kovan, the MacGuffin in the whole trilogy.
So yeah, not much this month on the Mutant Chronicles front, and not much for the next couple months either, as I scramble to finish a Slaanesh daemon army for an Age of Sigmar tournament in April, but after that I'll hopefully be pulling double-duty of painting my Capitol force, and running an MC campaign (should my gaming group vote for that as our next game). Hey! I told you I'd update you even if nothing's going on.
