Originally, this place was created to host pictures of a special fan game played using Kev Adams figures only - hence its name, "The Kev Adams Challenge". With the assistance of several dedicated contributors, it quickly grew into a gallery and resource site of Kevin "GoblinMaster" Adams' fine works :)
Given the stupendous number of figures he has sculpted in his career, the original title of this blog still applies, as it is a challenge to try and display even a decent fraction of his production indeed!

Do you have some nice pics to send us for the gallery?
A Kev Adams Challenge game report - one with Kev Adams figures only - to submit?

Kev Adams Challenge: The Game '14

One of the original ideas behind this blog was to share games played using only Kev Adams minis.
It never happened...

Until this week-end!

Three mighty Ork heroes played a game using a homebrewed set of rules requiring playing cards, Gros Plant du Pays Nantais, and pig's snout.


The set up - the objective is (nearly) in the middle: a mighty artifact that allows players to rain heavenly death upon their opponents.
Warlord Glurgl's faction

Warlord Drurgl's faction
Warlord Schmurgl's faction

The game mechanics were creative... Each player had a bottle of Gros Plant representing their Power (used to boost actions) and a tray of pig's snout representing their Life.


Every successful attack allowed the attacker to pick snout from the defender's tray with a single fork poke - the more skilful you are, the more snout you get, the more life you drain from your opponent. When your tray is empty, you die. The winner of the game is the last man standing - pretty straightforward.

Drurgl's used a lot of Power early in the game to rush his troops towards the objective.


The firefight was fierce, with the objective changing hands very often.



The battle reached such a climactic violence that the environment could hardly sustain it.




Glurgl was the first to die in the bloodbath... R.I.P....


And the mighty Drurgl finally emerged victorious. And a bit drunk, too.


The participants all agreed that this gaming experience was unique, and a kind of apex in their hobby career.
