My short time with No Man’s Sky

Posted on September 18th, 2017 under , . Posted by

“Inventory full.” “Life support at 50 percent.” “Thermal protection falling.” “Inventory full.” My suit’s AI voice chimes and chirps every time I reach a barrier to fun and I ask myself, “Why did I buy this?” and more importantly, “Why am I playing this?”. Hype is a hell of thing. And because of the hype […]

The Assault Group ECW Artillery

Posted on September 18th, 2017 under , , , , , , , , . Posted by

The Assault Group (TAG) has a huge range of Thirty Year’s War/English Civil War/general Renaissance figures that I’d heard good things about, including that they were fairly compatible in size and style to the Warlord figures that make up the entirety of my TYW/ECW collection so far. The only major piece missing from my 17th … Continue reading The Assault Group ECW Artillery

Review & Unboxing: Wood Elves Waywatcher Lord / Wandererers Waywatcher Warheim: Strażnik Ścieżek Leśnych Elfów z Athel Loren

Wood Elves Wanderers Waywatcher

The preparations  for Warheim Fantasy Skirmish tournament in October are advancing so I will show you another hero for my Athel Loren Wood Elves squadthe Waywatcher. It used to be a Waywatcher Lord miniature before the destruction of the Old World and now it is just a Waywatcher miniature in Age of Sigmar Wanderers and Sylvaneth army.
This time the miniature is made of metal. There is also a square base for him. There are 3 elements in the box that require some cut offs. All elements fit together very well and despite quite an old sculpture they are of a good quality. The miniature’s position is very “scenic” and there is also a Spite there =) I don’t think there is a need for any kind of conversion.
My rating: 5/6

Przygotowania do wrześniowego turnieju Warheim Fantasy Skirmish idą pełną parą, więc dzisiaj przedstawiam Wam kolejny nabytek do mojej drużyny Leśnych Elfów z Athel Loren – postać bohatera – Strażnika Ścieżek. Przed destrukcją Starego Świata był to model Lorda Strażnika Ścieżek i również w Age of Sigmar figurka jest po prostu Strażnikiem Ścieżek (Waywatcher) do armii Wędrowców i Sylvaneth
Tym razem figurka jest metalowa, z dołączoną kwadratową podstawką. Zestaw składa się z 3 elementów, które wymagają odcięcia nadmiarowego metalu.  Wszystkie elementy świetnie do siebie pasują. Mimo że to dość klasyczna już rzeźba, detale są wyraźne. Figurka ma bardzo “sceniczną” pozę i znalazło się tam też miejsce dla  duszka =) Myślę, że nie ma potrzeby na dokonywanie jakichkolwiek konwersji.
Moja ocena: 5/6

Review & Unboxing: Wood Elves Araloth / Wandererers Nomad Prince Warheim: Wieczny Strażnik Leśnych Elfów z Athel Loren

Posted on September 11th, 2017 under , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

I’ve started preparations for Warheim Fantasy Skirmish tournament in October so I had to add another hero to my Athel Loren Wood Elves squadthe Eternal Guard. Araloth miniature, the Lord of Talsyn and personal Champion of Queen Ariel, fits my squad perfectly. It’s also very important that despite the death of the Old World there is still a place for him in Age of Sigmar Wanderers and Sylvaneth army as the Nomad Prince.
The miniature is made of plastic. There is also a round base for him. All elements fit together and are very sharp and of a very good quality. There is no scenic base inside, but the miniature’s position is very “scenic”. Therefore, I don’t think there is a need for any kind of conversion.
My rating: 5+/6 (I hope it will be even better after I painted him =))

Rozpocząłem przygotowania do wrześniowego turnieju Warheim Fantasy Skirmish, więc czas najwyższy uzupełnić moją drużynę Leśnych Elfów z Athel Loren o postać bohatera – Wiecznego Strażnika. Konkurencji nie było, bo figurka Araloth‘a, Lorda Talsyn i osobistego Czempiona Królowej Ariel, pasuje perfekcyjnie. Co bardzo istotne, mimo destrukcji Starego Świata, w Age of Sigmar również znalazło się dla niego miejsce, jako Księcia Koczowników do armii WędrowcówSylvaneth
Zestaw jest plastikowy i zawiera także okrągłą podstawkę. Wszystkie elementy świetnie do siebie pasują. Detale są wyraźne i bardzo dobrej jakości. W zestawie nie ma scenicznej podstawki, ale pozycja Księcia sama w sobie jest bardzo “sceniczna”. Myślę, że nie ma potrzeby na dokonywanie jakichś konwersji.
Moja ocena: 5+/6 (mam nadzieję, że nie zapeszę przed malowaniem =))
