For years now I have been collecting and painting high quality resin buildings for some kind of medieval/fantasy gaming board. Now the project is taking shape and I have begun working on The Port of Gierburg. This first part describes how I made a water section usable not only for the port but also for piratey boarding actions. Foreword Water effects are one of the more difficult techniques it seems. I have read a lot about all types of water effects for tabletop/modelling. There’s a lot of talk about different resins, bubbles, stink, bending and breaking, etc. etc. Stu’s reports did not neccessarily motivate me to tackle the issue either, despite the results looking great .
I hate to be a shill for a retailer, but Rob Baer at Spikey Bits is a buddy and I have a lot of respect for the business he has built not once, but twice!
First up GW Australia got back to me extremely quickly and have already dispatched a replacement army book for me which is just awesome. Damage to the book aside I have to say its pretty damn good.
Here’s the first three games from our weekend at Warhammer World. I posted our list up yesterday for those who are interested. Game One – Titanic Fenrisians vs. GK/DA Our opponents, Chris and Elliot, were also fielding a similarly equipped dreadknight (no sword) supported by 5 GK terminators with a grand master, 5 DA scouts behind a quad gun aegis, 5 DW terminators and 5 DW knights with Belial. The GK terminators wouldn’t do our dreadknights any favours if we got too close thanks to psyk-out grenades and the deathwing knights would be no picnic either as they’d be likely to “Smite” a dreadknight down. We were playing Crusade (5) on Hammer and Anvil. Our opponents won the first turn and deployed with terminators on each side and the scouts within the aegis line in the back corner. Belial and the DW knights would be deepstriking. We deployed with our two dreadknights either side of our strike squad hoping they’d jump the dreadknight far enough for us to get in combat and bring it down turn one
With my invigorated passion for 40K, there comes new models! My buddy Mike recently bought me a squad of ten guardsmen models for my army. He said they were a gift but there’s a little bit of me that thinks he’s emotionally blackmailing me to keep my hobby mojo going. Well, if that’s the case, it’s bloody working! I love these guys! It’s a squad of ten Border World Rangers from Victoria Lamb miniatures . The models are brilliant but they’re posing a real challenge for me. It’s the first time I’ve working with multipart metal models, so there’s been lots of gluing arms and heads to fingers rather than torso’s etc! Now, I’d like to make it clear that this is a fault with my modeling ability and not the models, which are truly excellent. I really can't fault the detail on these guys, the molds themselves are so clean, I didn't realise they had mold lines until I'd primed the first five. They're perfectly scaled with GW plastic cadians, they're the same height, just a little slimmer, but that's perfectly acceptable as they've got bare arms and aren't sporting flak armour. Each ten man ranger pack comes with 10 legs, torsos, heads (all unique), cloaks, one piece arms and lasgun type weapons along with a good selection of pouches and bayonet
Hi everyone, The Daedalus project is nearly finished now.
The question often comes up, “What is a good model or formation to add to my army for Apocalypse.”
I woke up this morning to some amazing news, the Kickstarter has in the space of little over 12 hours surpassed it’s funding goal, reaching 116% Funding as I write this. To say I’m chuffed and slightly stunned would be an understatement, but I think it speaks volumes about the quality of
It is that time again, time to make my monthly hobby commitment for the Independent Character Hobby Challenge . However, before I do so, I must first say that I have made my commitments for the first three months of the challenge. This is something I am quite proud of considering the fact that I made two commitments during the entirety of their last challenge and didn't complete a single one of them. Read more »
