I’m sat on the train as I write this heading back somewhat tired and footsore from my first time at Salute. Wallet has taken a bit of a bruising despite best efforts to be reserved (I even took a small bag especially to limit what I could carry). Didn’t help. Although to be fair I […]

Earlier this week we talked about the good parts of the new Eldar codex. Some of the words I specifically avoided using “powerful” or “broken”. Most of the updates to the Eldar codex are pretty good, and bringing down the power level of the Wave Serpent was definitely a start. However, today we’re going to […]
The new Eldar codex has finally arrived, and there are a lot of changes to digest. It’s very interesting as right off the bat the codex does seem overpowered. There is a massive amount of D weapons and the Wraithknight can best be described as “silly”. There is the requisite dead weight in the book, […]
I bought the Bolt Action rulebook a while ago from Book Depository out of curiosity. I haven’t played any more than a couple of simple squad based games to get the feel of the rules, but recently found out the TCOW club in West Auckland is on something of a Bolt Action bender. If you’ve … Continue reading Review: Rubicon 1/56th, 28mm Panzer III Box
What game lets you say in the regular flow of play, “Jimmy ‘Cheap Ass’ Ernesto, at the wheel of a Monster Truck, disguised in a Nurse’s Uniform whacks Charlie ‘The Cheese’ Casso with an RPG?” If you answered DeadFellas from Ninja Division, you already know where this review is heading. And if you don’t, well,…
I’ve been playing a bit of Outrider recently and it reminded me of an earlier game of vehicular mayhem I used to enjoy decades ago as a spotty youth, along with such classic board games like Talisman. Purely out of nostalgia I looked up Steve Jackson Games and saw they sell a reprinted ‘Classic’ edition […]
It’s been a busy few weeks for Forge World, and they just dropped another set of models on us. We’ve got a nice variety this week, with a new Realm of Battle board leading us off. Additionally, there’s a new entry in the Horus Heresy Character Series; This time it’s Armillus Dynat, Harrowmaster of the […]
As if by magic the Shop-keeper appears. Inside, Mr Benn asks the fez-wearing shopkeeper if he can try on the Splittermuster Uniform… After a short break and with Spring in the air, Model Dads reconvenes at the workbench to try on AK-Interactive’s Splittermuster Uniform paint set:

The blogosphere is exploding today with leaked images of the new terrain that Games Workshop is releasing. With the rumors of the Void Shield Generator from yesterday, it looks like a big terrain push is finally on it’s way. The pictures of the new models are at the end of this post. There are two […]
The completely redesigned and exquisitely engineered Enhanced Machinators are extremely expensive to produce, containing Cuirassier electronics and cutting edge engineering. As such they are currently a rarity on the battlefield. Scientists are investigating methods to both reduce manufacturing costs and to utilise the A.I. as squad commanders for the basic Machinators. By developing and investigating command loop protocols, it is hoped that instead of deploying the enhanced version in large units it can be deployed singly, with a command of the original Machinators, although such processes are far from finalised. Pavlaski’s Enhanced Machinators are nigh on indestructible; built with hardened alloys that are resistant to all but the most powerful of ballistic weaponry; the perfect tool for covert operations, with joints that move with an inhuman grace and silence. They are the masters of rapid assault with elongated legs and cybernetic tendons that give a gazelle-like leap and the ability to jump into and out of cover in near silence. Suffice to say, this contemporary take on the Machinator design is perfect for missions of assassination, reconnaissance and infiltration.

|All the contents, three models, four arm configurations, three 40mm bases and one stat card.|
|Same card as before, showing the old KS design in the artwork. Still really nice though.|
|Sprue with the bodies of the models, you can build these guys without the use of glue (you just put the arms and the ball joints snaps into the sockets and stays there) not counting gluing them into the base.|
|The armor have lots of really tiny and delicate details.|
|You have all three with ‘Striker’ Assault Rifles or change one for the SSW4200P ‘Suppressor’ HMG.|
|Assembly is so easy, clip of the sprue and put them on. Take them of when you paint if you like and put them on again, or change weapons. You don’t even need magnets, love it!|
|Again here you can see the delicate and small details, lovely models.|
|Big difference in details.|
Earlier last month a copy of Angel Giraldez book on miniature painting turned up, which if you had been following any of the pre-release hype you would think heralded the second coming. As Corvus Belli’s star miniature painter, Angel’s book is unashamedly ‘Infinity’ centric and covers in some detail his signature technique of applying […]
First of all we will take a look at the food supplies blister pack which contains 8 high-quality resin pieces including piles of crates, barrels and sacks. Next to this, these piles are also decorated with lots of detailled fruit and vegetables baskets, coils of ropes and small bottles adding even more detail to these supplies. What I especially like is that there are lots of different crate and barrel designs so you won’t be filling your table with identical looking supplies but a real mishmash!
It actually kind of hurts to finish this guy! i have never been so confused and intrigued by a model. The pose is beautiful and dominating but the weapon is extremely flimsy, the face has very very shallow detail and the flags are extremely fragile too! I hate to have to review him, but as is my policy, he leaves my desk he gets a review. The Review KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE MISHIMA LEADER TASTUMOTOPrice: N/A Sculpt:5/5 (beatiful pose and great armor detailing) […]
Forge World released the Scyllax Guardian-Automata Covenant over last weekend. They helpfully also released the experimental rules for them on their web site. Today we’re going to pick through these rules and figure out if these guys are worth it. First and foremost, I want to complain about what I call “points packaging”. When you […]
About ten days ago I made an order to Eureka USA for a few things, most importantly their Russian three horse Tachanka/crew in cap. What the heck, you ask, is a tachanka (also found spelled “tchanka”)? It’s a Russian vehicle developed during the Great War and used, in various forms, right through the Second World … Continue reading Eureka’s Tachanka, Part One →
Continuing on with my recent book posts, I drop my most anticipated releases of 2015. This is a good year for sequels! This is book 2 of the Chronicles of the Unhewn Throne and it actually dropped in January. I haven’t had a go at it yet, but I l…
Taking a break from reviews still doesn’t stop me from butchering the German language. This time I’m spoiling a wonderful reference book, a one-stop shop for the wargamer with more than a passing interest in the Wehrmacht+:
