The Road to Blog Wars 5: Progress

The Road to Blog Wars 5: Progress

It’s the evening of Tuesday 18 June 2013. I have three days to go before Blog Wars 5 and there’s a lot to do before the army is ready! The picture above was taken on the 1st! This post is going to be a brief summary of my progress to date, some of the techniques and materials I have used to prepare the army and my thoughts about what’s worked and what hasn’t worked. Pulling it together: The first thing to do is to get everything stuck together. For the new kits this is a lot of fun, but for the older kits some of the mold lines are pretty substantial. I took a production line approach wherever possible for this project, assembling everything in batches, tanks, piranhas, broadsides, riptides, drones, and finally the infantry models. Working on things in groups allowed me to mix and match between the sprues, taking heads from the pathfinder sprue and arms from the tank sprue for example. The firewarrior kit has really aged and after about twenty of these guys I became convinced that an updated kit would have been fantastic. Especially if it had been made to the same quality as the pathfinder kit which is an excellent example of what Games Workshop are capable of these days. This next picture shows where I got to at the end of my plastic gluing session on the 8th June. Out of shot the piranhas are mostly done and the devilfish and hammerhead tanks are drying

New Eldar Codex Unit Reviews – Fast Attack

New Eldar Codex Unit Reviews – Fast Attack

Probably the weakest section of the codex but that’s often the case recently. Once again the aspect warriors are still nice models but with mediocre rules they’ll not see the light of day very much. However, this section does contain the only reasonable dedicated anti-air choice in the codex. Swooping Hawks The fun of swooping hawks in the old codex was dropping them in, pie-plating a unit then taking off again before any reprisals. They can still do that in the new book but as before it’s a case of whether you think the shenanigans are worth it. They have a decent amount of firepower but it’s only S3 AP5. The most interesting thing about them is their appropriately titled special rule “Herald of Victory”. With it they can deep strike without scatter. When you combine this with Skyleap they can be doing their grenade pack thing and in turn 5 drop in to contest an objective late on. They’ll be an irritation to your opponent but they won’t necessarily win you the game if it goes beyond turn 5.

Battle Report – Blog Wars Warm-up – Tau vs. CSM/Daemons & Tau vs. GK

Battle Report – Blog Wars Warm-up – Tau vs. CSM/Daemons & Tau vs. GK

Matt and I have been working on our Blog Wars 5 lists (tickets still available from the link on the right) for a while now. I’ve switched from DE to DA to Tau and Matt has been trying to find a CSM/Daemons list that he’s happy with. Today was another test game for us. Matt would be trying out a new Chaos list followed by a Grey Knights alternative and I’d be using my “backup” Tau list that requires less painting than my planned list. Oh and it’s cheaper too as I don’t need to buy any broadsides. Here’s what I’m running: 1,850 pts of Tau Commander (fusion, plasma, TL, VRT, iridium) Ethereal 12 Fire Warriors w/ Devilfish (d.pod) 12 Fire Warriors 12 Fire Warriors 11 Kroot plus hound 11 Kroot plus hound 3 Crisis Shas’ui (twin-linked fusion, plasma) 2 Crisis Shas’ui (MP, twin-linked MP), Shas’vre (2 pods, PEN) Riptide (ion, fusion, EWO, VT) 7 Pathfinders 7 Pathfinders Sun Shark (twin-linked MP, decoys) Hammerhead (Longstrike, subs, SMS, spines, d.pod) I’ll run down how the list works in another post but I’m pretty sure you can imagine. Anyway, onto the battle reports. Game One – Tau vs. CSM/Daemons Matt was running 2 princes, lord of change, pink horrors, typhus, 2 x 10 zombies, 2 heldrakes, 3 solo obliterators.

Eldar – A bit of spelunking in the Closet of Doom!

Eldar – A bit of spelunking in the Closet of Doom!

I was doing some reorganization in the Closet of Doom earlier this weekend, idly cursing GW under my breath for the upcoming Eldar release. I lucked out with the Tau release, as I wasn’t particularly interested in the updated miniatures range but the Wraithknight and the plastic Wraithguard really got my attention. After working on the Prometheus, how can I resist building an Eldar Knight? In order to try and justify it to myself I dug up the box of Eldar I’d last dabbled with back in 2009 . I was actually surprised how much there was! In fact there’s an FOC-viable army in the box (though it’s anybody’s guess whether it’s a game-viable), consisting of a Farseer with a little Seer Council, an Autarch, a unit of Guardians, a trio of Aspect warriors, a couple Wave Serpents and a Wraithlord!

Ebay pro painted prices – what the?

Ebay pro painted prices – what the?

I was on Ebay looking for Emperor’s Children bits when I cam across these ace Kromlech shoulder guards: These shoulder guards are only £6 for 10; bargain. Kromlech also do some E.C helmets too – I have made a swift purchase of both of them. I then came across the top pro painted image; a Heldrake, unit of Warp Talons and Raptors, which both the latter are in units of 5. Excellent paint job I'll add, really makes them stand out, but what really did stand out was the price – £650.00! Here's the eBay link if you do not believe me:
