The Road to Blog Wars 5: Army List

The Road to Blog Wars 5: Army List

It was always a given that I’d be taking Tau Empire to my first Blog Wars tournament. The real challenge, for me at least, is settling on an army list. Preferably with enough time to actually open.clean.assemble.paint the thing! See what I did there? Digital Codex: I have to give a brief thumbs up here to the digital codex. There are some things I don’t like about it, such as it’s size (in MBs) and cost. On a more serious note, I’d like to be able to access it from machines other than my iPad, such as my iPhone or iCloud account on my PC/Mac, but I’ll live with this for now. Generally speaking the codex is a really good electronic document. Games Workshop have done a convincing job of moving into the 21st century here, this isn’t just a PDF of the print codex. Instead it’s a shiny pretty thing which is functional too

Australia Games Day News and Notes

Australia Games Day News and Notes

Collegia Titanica put out this blog entry with information from GW staff and seminars at Games Day Australia. Forge World – Warlord Titan? Big kits are a balance of cost in time vs how much they’ll sell realistically. For instance the Manta took one and a half years for Will Hayes to produce, during which time he wasn’t getting much else done. Could he have made fifteen other kits that would have sold more in that time? That’s the numbers they run and why big kits are rarer. They do want to make a Warlord though. – That Bran Redmaw mini seen but not released? Gone. Mark wasn’t happy with the quality so asked for it not to be released

The Great FAQ Challenge

The Great FAQ Challenge

Hello, Apocalypse 40k readers, Son of Dorn, here. I’ve come to you today with an exciting proposal. We know that new FAQ’s for 6th edition are on their way to us, so why not lend Games Workshop a helping hand? I’d like to use the comments section of this article to collect questions that you have about 6th edition. These can be ANYTHING you’re confused about: clarifications, requests for more examples, codex questions, allies questions, anything that’s on your mind! I’ll be taking these questions and collating them into a massive document that I’m exerting every effort to get to important folks at Games Workshop. So all you have to do is ask away. I’ll be the insane person that does the grunt work of organizing it all, and you can know that the community’s burning questions have been presented to those that matter. Having said this, the purpose here is not for complaining or whining, or even arguing rules with those who do post questions. I'll be organizing them and throwing out ones that are obvious, and making notes of things that are brought up frequently (even if obvious) as it indicates on a larger scale that it's not presented clearly enough

GW Design Studio Open Day

GW Design Studio Open Day

Matt, Jamie and I were at Warhammer World in Nottingham yesterday for the Open Day event run by Games Workshop. This was essentially a showcase of the process of designing both rules and miniatures taking concept art into the actual plastics that appear on the tabletop. General Event There were lots of different activities around the gaming hall. One massive table had what must have been about 50 fully painted flyers. There were some absolutely stunning conversions there and the idea was you picked one you liked the look of and had a dogfight with someone. Obviously this is an attempt to encourage people to buy the new flyers but from my perspective it gave me a good opportunity to see how they fair against each other. Stood at this table was none other than Phil Kelly. My first question to him was “you’re not retiring then?” to which he responded “no you’ve got to put up with me for at least a few more years”. In case you’d missed it there was a rumour going round that he was retiring that had pretty much already been quashed anyway.

Hobby: New LOGO! And Some Minor Projects

Hobby: New LOGO! And Some Minor Projects

Hey guys, WOW! Its been a while since I’ve posted. Those of you who don’t follow us on Facebook (SHAME ON YOU, CLICK THE LINK!!!), I’ve been doing some updates over there, namely my crappy Saturday (migraines suck…) and how busy I’ve been with school lately. Though, thanks to my Digital Media class, I was able to come up with a brand new logo for Smells Like Wargaming! I’ll need to sit down and do some resizing, but I’m fairly happy with it all in all. I have it set up so I can reverse the colors too, meaning my SLW Marines aren’t obsolete! Speaking of Marines, as I’d posted on Thursday, I got the 8 Berserkers assembled and based. However, I’m not putting paint to them for a little bit. I needed to order some FW doors for a client for an upcoming commission, so I got some Forge World Brass Etching ordered along with it. The Berserker kit is so old, I figure the Khorne Etching will add a lot of needed detail to these models, as well as my Khorne Daemon Prince. Speaking of that Khorne Daemon Prince, I’ve been working on him too! I finally started on the Chainaxe I wanted him to carry.

It came from 4chan: Interview with The God-Emperor of Mankind!

It came from 4chan: Interview with The God-Emperor of Mankind!

Welcome to yet another glorious edition of It Came From 4chan ! This time we are going to talk about art and painting. And nope, I’m not talking about slapping paint on primed miniatures, but about an aspect of our hobby that we really don’t get to see that often outside of the new pretty army books and codices. Yes, I am talking about Warhammer 40,000-inspired fan art and more importantly the drawings of everyone’s favorite Primarchs, done by the one and only God-Emperor of Mankind ( deviantART Gallery ) The elusive self-taught artist volunteered to share some trade secrets with us, the mere mortals, so if you like awesome pictures and cherish your life you will read this interview! Q: Thank you for joining us today, O God Emperor of Mankind. Of course I have to ask you what feats of strength lead to such a mighty title.. IMPERATOR DEUS! A: Absolutely my pleasure! Ah the name, well its been lost since 2006 when I first started browsing /tg/ in search for 40k stuff. But the name got cemented once I started , I guess you could call them role-play threads where everyone picked a name from a different faction and/or special characters like Doomrider or Tzeentchnette. But mostly because I painted a Portrait of the God-Emperor of Mankind. On a 50cm Height 40Cm length canvas using oil based paints. Q : That is quite fascinating! The Emperor looks so stoic and serious and you can definitely see the weight of many worlds in his eyes

Building the Killzone “Booster Pack” Tables: Part II

Building the Killzone “Booster Pack” Tables: Part II

It’s always like a holiday when “Frozencore” Joe stops by for some good ole hobby-time. Even on Memorial Day. That’s like a double rain— holiday, all across the sky. I know I promised you an update on Sunday, but with work being annoying and what not we had to postpone everything. But, no worries – we did meet up and a lot of progress was made. The materials: Ork Barricades – Resin. You get 6 different barricades for $22. Amazing, considering some of the bits you would need to duplicate them. One of the barricades is a wrecked Ork buggy! Dap Drydex Spackling – A pink spackling that turns white when completely dry

A Stylish Blogger, me? Well that is what Mark at Musings of a Metal Mind thinks. To get such a nomination from a hobby icon like him, well that is just cool, thanks man! So in the spirit of this digital wildfire, here we go… What to do: — Thank and link back to the person giving you the award (see above) — Share seven things about yourself — Select 10-15 blogs who you think deserve this award — Contact these bloggers and let them know about the award Seven things about myself…. –I used to be a redshirt. A time ago I was a staffer at GW, it was one of the best experiences in my working life. I can blame many of my hobby skills on those two years. It is what prompted me to be a productive member of hobby society. –I drank beers with Tom Savini
