Town Planning

Posted on February 20th, 2018 under , , , , , , . Posted by

There is one thing that as miniature wargamers we cannot get away from – we all need terrain over which to fight. Luckily, we seem to be in a golden age for terrain. Gone are the days when we were forced to scratch build our battlefields from old…

Scenery bits of the week…I managed to get a few pieces done in between sessions of painting the big lizard. A bit of a mix of models, I had not quite finished and were waiting around the desk. All available here

Hills, ponds and a water well

Posted on January 19th, 2018 under . Posted by

Scenery bits for the week…Quite a few of them, I don’t know how that happened as I’ve been struggling with migraines all week and thought at some point I’d get nothing done. So, some hills and ponds and a water well that I had done a while ago. All a…

Terrain is everything – 40k future container scatter terrain – To Done!

Posted on January 15th, 2018 under , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Following on from the Deathwatch and the sentinels I finished up two future containers. These pieces of scatter terrain have been knocking around for years. Whereas I’d completed six of them and been using them in games these two had stalled because I …

Arcane Ruins

A couple of scenery bits for this week…They were made with the Arcane Ruins kit from GW. It’s an older set but still available from them which is rare as they tend to ditch them. All available from the shop: Ebay

Trees scenery

Terrain is everything – Warhammer TV Tables

Posted on December 15th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

Following on from the debate over the terrain Ben and I used in our last match I decided to share with him what GW themselves are using on their Twitch Channel during Warhammer TV Live. I took these screengrabs from a game last week.

Going into this I was already aware how much terrain they use but what I did notice that was surprising was just how few fire lanes are available. The Ferratonic Furnaces, combined with the Munitorum Containers means there are hardly any complete lines of sight from one deployment zone.

Definitely for Ben, or anyone who employs a gunline this would present some challenges. Preventing your opponent from just sitting still and shooting without any disadvantages, but also making those artillery pieces that can shoot without line of sight all the more valuable.

Ben had actually considered dropping the units that could do that but if the normal tables at Warhammer World have had increases in terrain he may well be needing the ability to shoot without line of sight.

They certainly love their Munitorum Containers, over £125 worth of them on one table!

Lots to think about going forward as I’m beginning to realise I’ll need to step up my own endeavours in terrain – whether that is producing some of my very own Print & Play buildings, completing my container STC, or creating new pieces and STCs from scratch it looks like I’m goignn to have to find some time to get some done…

Terrain is everything – Bolt Action WWII tables.

Posted on December 13th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

PeteBis heavily into Bolt Action now and although I’m hearing many positive reports from him, Ben and Otty and I’m unlikely to take the plunge into another game. That said I do admire hsi efforts and he hosted a Bolt Action event at Wargames at the weekend and I had to take pictures of the tables he put together. I belive this one was Tobruk

This was Normandy.

Burma, I think.

And Stalingrad

Apparently the Traain was from Home & Bargain here in the UK – perfect scale, including track for under £15!

Great boards, normal 40k will resume shortly 😉

Project: Camp for Warheim Fantasy Skirmish (Carnival of Blog’s Minis) Figurkowy Karnawał Blogowy XXXVIII – Ulepek

Camp WiP for Warheim Fantasy Skirmish

Figurkowy Karnawał Blogowy
For non polish visitors I hasten to explain that Carnival of Blog’s Minis is the initiative of polish miniatures bloggers. The idea is based on monthly challenges on various topics about miniatures etc. This month’s theme is about making something.
Trwa XXXVIII edycja Figurkowego Karnawału Blogowego, ogłoszona na łamach bloga Fantasy w Miniaturze, zaś motywem przewodnim jest “Ulepek”.

Today I will show you something that I have been slowly working on for a while – the Camp for Warheim Fantasy Skirmish and for my Wood Elves from Athel Loren squad. I wanted to finish it for the tournament in September, but as usual, I ran out of time. Interestingly, one of the prizes for taking the 3rd place was a set to create a camp =) Before I got this set I managed to make a base, a table, a bench and a pot full of food hanging above the fire. A bit unfortunate that a similar pot was in the set, but maybe I would still use it someday =) For the camp I used 3 mats, a pile of wood, 2 barrels for water and with water, and 2 wooden stumps as seats. In the last photo you can see the remaining elements of the set (mainly fireplaces), which I will use in other projects. If you have any ideas to improve this camp, please leave a comment =) W ramach FKB pokażę Wam coś nad czym od jakiegoś czasu powoli pracuję – Obozowisko do Warheim Fantasy Skirmish dla mojej drużyny Leśnych Elfów z Athel Loren. Miałem je zrobić na turniej we wrześniu, ale jak zwykle zabrakło czasu. Co ciekawe, jedną z wygranych za zajęcie 3-ciego miejsca był właśnie zestaw do tworzenia obozowiska =) Sam dałem radę z różnych rzeczy “ulepić” wcześniej makietę, stolik, ławkę oraz wiszący nad ogniskiem garnek pełen jedzenia. Trochę pechowo, że podobny garnek znajdował się w zestawie, ale może jeszcze mi się do czegoś przyda =) Do zrobienia makiety wykorzystałem 3 “legowiska”, stertę drewna, beczki na wodę i z wodą oraz 2 pniaki na siedziska. Na ostatnim zdjęciu widać pozostałe elementy zestawu (głównie paleniska), które wykorzystam kiedy indziej. Jeśli macie jakieś pomysły na ulepszenie tego obozowiska to piszcie śmiało =)
