Złowrogi cień | Ominous Shade

Posted on August 20th, 2016 under , , , , , . Posted by

Praktycznie koniec sierpnia, a wpisów w tym miesiącu jak na lekarstwo – trudno, okres wakacji nie sprzyja u mnie malowaniu. Wyjazdy, sprawy osobiste, trochę się tego namnożyło. Niemniej jednak coś tam podmalowuję w wolniejszych chwilach, trochę do epica i kilka większych figurek.
Na szczęście sytuację ratuje odrobinę Mormeg, dzielnie kończący swoją armię Angmaru. Najnowszym dodatkiem do sił Czarnoksiężnika jest widoczny obok cień – amalgamat udręczonych duchów, wysysających energię i mrożących dotykiem do szpiku kości – jak to ładnie ujął producent na stronie sklepu. 
Malowanie standardowe, identyczne z poprzednio pokazywanymi umrzykami mojego brata. Sama figurka natomiast jest – moim zdaniem – doskonała. W idealny sposób oddaje charakter i istotę tego ożywieńczego monstrum. Przez dłuższy czas niedostępna w sprzedaży, miniaturka ta osiągała spore ceny na wszelkiej maści ibajach i innych alegro. Skuszony jej urokiem kupiłem ją i ja – przyda się do Frostgrave.

It is almost the end of August and blog entries are few and far between this month. Holidays are really bad both for my blogging and my hobby activities. Travels, some personal issue, etc. But I slowly paint something more for epic and some larger miniatures too.

Fortunately my brother Mormeg is slightly more productive then me – he managed to paint some more miniatures for his ever growing Angmar army. The newest addition to the forces of the Witch-king, Lord of Angmar, is shade – horrific amalgam of tortured spirits, held in eternal bondage by the dread sorcery – as one can read on GW’s website.

Painting is exactly the same as the rest of undeads by my bro. Miniature itself is – in my opinion – perfect. It is an ideal representation of evil spirit, of dread power of this undead creature. It was unavailable for quite a long time and it was rather expensive to buy on E-bay. I bought it recently, charmed by its look – it will be most useful for Frostgrave I think.

Z półki Mormega: Titanicus

Posted on August 13th, 2016 under , , , , . Posted by

Uważni czytelnicy recenzji książek Black Library, jakie pojawiają się na Miniwojnie, orientują się zapewne, że lubię książki Dana Abnetta. Lubię jego styl pisania i przemawia do mnie jego wizja światów Imperium, cokolwiek różniąca się w szczegółach od rockretowego kanonu. Podobają mi się również motywacje rządzącego jego bohaterami, zwłaszcza drugoplanowymi – tak było w Ravenorze, tak było również w Eisenhornie, dwóch moich ulubionych cyklach tego pisarza.
Recenzowana powieść nie jest, oczywiście, żadną nowością, jej pierwsze wydanie ukazało się na rynku w 2008 r. jakoś jednak nie miałem do tej okazji jej poznać. Zabrałem ją ze sobą na urlop, skuszony trochę wizją nadchodzącej, nowej wersji epica.
Fabuła opowiada o świecie-kuźni Orestes, na który niespodziewanie spada atak wyznawców Chaosu, będący częścią walk określanych jako krucjata Sabbat. Atak jest niezwykle silny, bierze w nim udział bardzo duża grupa tytanów chaosu. Przeciwko nim Orestes może wystawić jedynie szczątkowe siły własnego Legio Titanicus, Legio Tempestus, gdyż zdecydowana większość maszyn legionu bierze udział w krucjacie.
W rezultacie napaści tytanów Chaosu rozbite, a właściwie rozgromione zostają stacjonujące na Orestes planetarne siły obronne pierwszego i drugiego rzutu, do walki rzucane są jednostki trzeciorzutowe, tyłowe.
Na szczęście dla obrońców, gubernatorowi Orestes udaje się uzyskać pomoc od Legio Invicta, legionu tytanów spieszącego na główny front krucjaty, którego flota przelatuje akurat w relatywnej bliskości planety. Walka staje się bardziej wyrównana, pojawia się nawet nadzieja na zwycięstwo.
Niemniej jednak walki tytanów, opisywane zresztą z typową dla autora swobodą, są tylko częścią akcji. Okazuje się bowiem, że najazd sił Chaosu staje się okazją do przejęcia władzy w kuźni. Przejęcia, dodam, mogącego potencjalnie zagrozić sojuszowi Marsa i Terry, gdyż środkiem do zamachu stanu jest ujawnienie zapomnianej wiedzy o Imperatorze i Omnissiahu. Jak widać, gra idzie o naprawdę dużą stawkę.
Trudno jest wskazać jednoznacznie bohatera powieści – akcja toczy się bowiem wokół działań kilku praktycznie równorzędnych postaci. To, między innymi, jeden z dowódców tytana Legio Invicta, kobieta-żołnierz planetarnych sił obronnych, dowódca oddziału pancernego gwardii imperialnej, łączniczka między siłami Imperium i Mechanicum. Opis ich działań nie łączy się ze sobą, pozornie nie są one nawet niczym ze sobą związane, by dopiero pod koniec książki połączyć się w jedno zakończenie, w jeden splot wielu wątków.
Wspomniałem o opisach walk tytanów – są napisane barwnym, fajnym językiem, wydarzenia stają przed oczami wyobraźni, pojawia się kilka interesujących sytuacji, jak polowanie na obcą maszynę przy użyciu sensorów audio, czy atak hord skitarii Mrocznego Mechanicum na jedną z boskich maszyn. Niemniej jednak przypuszczam, że kilkaset stron takiej akcji szybko znudziłoby czytelnika. Wspomniałem już jednak, że lubię bohaterów Abnetta – także i tutaj autor mnie nie zawiódł. Opis stosunków panujących w załogach tytanów, perypetie męża członkini planetarnych sił obronnych, pozostałego do obsługi portu kosmicznego, wydarzenia w mieście-kuźni i stojący za nimi członkowie Mechanicum w barwny sposób dopełniają obrazu walczącego świata, pozwalając nieco odpocząć od huku gigantycznych dział i wyjących tryumfalnie klaksonów zwycięskich tytanów.
Sposób pisania Abnetta, uwaga, jaką przykłada do swoich postaci, jest czymś odświeżającym w powieściach BL. Zazwyczaj bohaterowie tego rodzaju, postaci drugiego planu, są zaledwie kartonowym tłem dla herosów opisywanych przez innych autorów – tu jest nieco inaczej. Postaci nabierają głębi i tracą dwuwymiarowość – świetnym przykładem jest powoli staczający się w mrok zapomnienia, łączący się w jedno ze swoim tytanem jeden z pricepsów Legio Invicta. Trudno jednak powiedzieć, by bohaterowie Titanicus byli równie pełni życia jak bohaterowie większych cyklów tego samego autora – o co raczej zresztą byłoby trudno, biorąc pod uwagę objętość książki i cyklu, choćby, Eisenhorn.
Z pewnością Titanicus nie jest dziełem wybitnym, nie jest też najlepszą pozycją w dorobku Abnetta. Nie przeszkadza mi to jednak w uznaniu, że te kilka godzin, jakie poświęciłem na lekturę tej książki, nie zostały zmarnowane. Titanicus to solidna porcja lektury ze świata Wh40K, na dodatek książka poruszaja stosunkowo rzadko pojawiający się aspekt tego uniwersum. Warto przeczytać.

Epic 30K odsłona 37: Terminatorzy w żółci | Epic 30K part 37: Terminators in yellow

Posted on August 10th, 2016 under , , , , , . Posted by

Tytuł dość jednoznaczny – cztery podstawki terminatorów mojego legionu Imperialnych Pięści. Modele metalowe Games Workshop z najnowszej, jak dotąd, inkarnacji gry, czyli gdzieś z przełomu wieków. Jako dowódca wstawiony jest model, zdaje się, kapelana – nie jest to jednoznacznie widoczne, więc uznałem, że będzie odpowiedni.
Malowanie dość proste – biały podkład, Iyanden Darksun z aerografu, wash Devlan Mud, a potem wyciąganie szczegółów żółtym z domieszką bieli, detale czarne. Modele są dość szczegółowe – jak na tę skalę – z pewnością jednak przy obecnej technologii można byłoby zrobić je lepsze. Mam jeszcze kilka miniaturek terminatorów, więc może w przyszłości rozwinę ten oddział….
Title is straightforward I think – four stands of my Imperial Fists Legion. Miniatures casted from metal by Games Workshop during newest, yet, incarnation of Epic game – turn of the centuries I think. Leader miniature is a chaplain I think – it is not obviously clear, so it fits nicely.

Painting really simple – white undercoat, Iyanden Darksun painted with airbrush, then Devlan Mud wash and details picked out with yellow/white mix, some details black or red. Miniatures are relatively detailed – considering it is 6mm scale – but I’m sure that today’s technology would make them even better.

As I still have some terminator miniatures left, I will probably make this unit bigger – in the future;)
