Hello all, I managed
Hey guys! So I’ve been painting my butt off, and got a lot done in the last couple of days! Lets skip the small talk and get right into everything! First off is a Realms of Battle Board done for a shop in Farmington, New Mexico. I know, doing a terrain piece for a shop in Farmington when I manage the shop in Durango is a little bit of a conflict of interests, but it will foster the hobby overall in the long run, so I'm happy to do it.
Welcome to ” The Alpha Legiondary Journey ” series, which is going to be my way of communicating, sharing and brainstorming with you – the blogosphere and wargaming community – as I slowly create a 2,000 points Alpha Legion-themed list to be used with the Warhammer 40,000 6th Edition ruleset. Originally I was thinking of calling this segment ” Alpha Legioning it Up “, but I’m pretty sure the fact that English is not my native tongue isn’t the only reason why this title is unpronounceable. Yeesh. My name is Skarvald the Troll-faced and I will be your host. Haha. Let’s start with the foundation of what “The Alpha Legiondary Journey” is trying to accomplish: GOAL:
Most people will have probably seen them by now but yesterday GW posted some new FAQs for the current collection of codices. It might be coincidence but it seems that they always release them the week before I go to one of their doubles events. Anyway, as usual here’s a rundown of the most significant changes. Nothing too exciting except for the Tau thing at the bottom. Rulebook Stats can be modified to 0 except Initiative which can’t go below 1. Wounds from blast markers need to be kept separate as they’re capable of hitting models that the firer can’t see. Makes sense I suppose as a high explosive round could still hit those guys round the corner of the building with shrapnel. Split fire can’t be used to blow up a vehicle for the rest of the squad to fire on the occupants.
When I got into 40k six years ago G.W’s prices wasn’t too bad, I would say reasonable for what you get. For example a Tactical Squad would cost £18 which equals £1.80 per Space Marine. Terminators were £25 a box which is £5 per Terminator. Those prices aren’t too bad. Over the years G.W has been increased the prices of their products. Terminators are now £28 a box while Tactical Marines are £23 a box. This equals £5.60 per Terminator and £2.30 per Tactical Marine, prices have increased 50p-60p per model. This doesn’t sound a lot but when you combine that together you’re talking £3-£5 extra per box. When you’re doing an army where everything has increased £3-£5 per box you’re talking a lot of extra cost.
Hello all, Since there are very few actual Rebel Grot models I need to do a lot of conversions to build a full army.
New 40K FAQs are up.
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
Hello all, I managed a bit of progress on the tanks for my Rebel Grots.
Its a bank holiday Monday here in the UK. Traditionally this is marked by heavy rain, and rubbish films on the telly. Well the rain has kept off, but the poor telly is here. I avoided doing any
