Gates of Antares game day

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

So we had our second Beyond the Gates of Antares game day today. Due to some complicating factors we all couldn’t make it out last week but Jeremy, Jonathon and I all came out with our 500 point forces. Jeremy had his Concord, Jonathon his Algoryn and I had my Ghar Rebels. I was at a […]

Kill Team as the perfect miniature game

Posted on July 10th, 2018 under , , . Posted by

So now we know why there were never any expansions to Shadow War: Armageddon. Games Workshop saw the clear fan interest in that game and decided to use it as the basis for a new version of Kill Team. That makes sense of course because I suspect that most people wanted to play Kill Team […]

DREADBALL EPISODE 1 – Team presentation: Marauders

Posted on July 7th, 2018 under , , , , , . Posted by

Until Monday, July 9th 2018, Mantic is giving a 25% discount on all Dreadball teams. For us enough reason to launch a series of Dreadball focused articles, where we will introduce some of the teams and review both editions of the game. We`ll start with…

Deadzone terrain

Posted on July 4th, 2018 under , , . Posted by

Forgotten in all of the other projects I have been working on has been the stack of partially painted Deadzone terrain I was working on. It is intended to be used in the upcoming summer Deadline event so I am making an effort to get it done in-between other projects. I wanted these pieces to […]

First Ghar finished

Posted on July 3rd, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

So I did a bit of a push this afternoon and evening to get the rest of the army finished. All I need to do is to seal them tomorrow. I could have probably done a better job on some of the highlights but I decided to draw a line under them and move on […]

Final stretch

Posted on July 3rd, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

So with a few days left before our first Gates of Antares game day I am almost finished all of my Ghar. I am going to add grass tufts to the bases and then some gloss to the lenses after I finish coating the figures. The Flitter Bombs still need some work on them but […]

500 points of Ghar almost done

Posted on July 1st, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

If I am going to get some Ironjawz painted then I need to finish the 500pts of Ghar that are sitting on my painting table. I have almost got them done. I just started the first step on the bases (a coat of Astrogranite Debris) and then I need to finish the many, many lenses […]

Combat Zone… Dusting off a classic

Posted on July 1st, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

Whilst having a clear out of old rule sets I came across these from the early 90’s.Back then I had quite a collection of Bikers, Gangers and SWAT teams, most of which went off to e-bay many years ago, but I kept the rules just in case… Combat Zone wa…

What’s On The Table

Posted on June 26th, 2018 under , , , , , . Posted by

I have actually started the lower hull of the large transporter, but the weather is so nice, I have been spending more time in the garden drinking Gin and Tonic, or when not drinking Gin and Tonic, going out on the old Ducati. But some progress is being made…just very slowly… Advertisements

Ghar painting update

Posted on June 26th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

So work continues on the first part of my Ghar Rebel army. I have most of the base colours on and have added some washes to the skin, cloaks and spider parts. Sadly that appears to be the easy part. I now have to paint the lenses and the weapon energy sources. There are a […]

What’s On The Table

Posted on June 21st, 2018 under , , , , , . Posted by

The upper hull is about done. The nose cone is removable and reveals… …an embarkation point for models. As you can see, I added a few rivets… …and a missile launch module The engines will get glued into a fixed position, when they rotate, the paint on the supporting arms gets scratched off as the … Continue reading What’s On The Table

Adding some colour to the Ghar

Posted on June 18th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

It has been a slightly busy week but I managed to get some more paint on my Ghar Rebel troops. The models are all wearing some sort of reptilian scales over their cloaks. I decided to do these in blue to fit into the blue undertone of the armour and the colours I drybrushed them […]

What’s On The Table?

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

It is big, grey and getting painted. I have started with the upper hull and the engines, I wanted to do a multi grey pattern like the Enterprise D, well a bit like it anyway. Advertisements

Starting to paint my Ghar Rebels

Posted on June 12th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

So I managed to get a start on the first 500 points of my Ghar Rebel army. I did a base coat with the Army Painter Medium Grey primer and then washed all the of armour and metal on the models with Nuln Oil. It looks exceptionally good on the Troopers. After that I did […]

Updated 500pt Ghar Rebel list

Posted on June 10th, 2018 under , , . Posted by

I looked at my original 500pt Ghar list and realized that it didn’t have the Bomber squad in it. A Ghar list without a Disruption weapon just isn’t worth playing so I have tweaked the original so that it now has a Disruption weapon to wreak havoc with. Ghar Rebel (Ghar Outcast Rebel) [496pts] Army […]

The Ghar have landed

Posted on June 10th, 2018 under , , . Posted by

So the first part of my Ghar army arrived last night and I have updated my to-do list with the first set of models that need to get finished for the 500pt list that I am doing.  The figures I ordered included a Ghar Rebel starter army and unlike any other forces I have purchased […]

I’ve started getting a real sweet-tooth for wargaming mats. They make your surface just so much more desirable to play on. The immersion isn’t going […]

500 point Ghar Rebel force

Posted on June 2nd, 2018 under , , , , . Posted by

I know. I said that I was going to play Isorians but I can’t say no to the delightful insanity of the Ghar Outcast Rebel army. Here is a 500pt list I am considering for the first stage of the upcoming slow-grow league. Ghar Rebel Starter List Army Options Army Options [10pts]: Block!, Well Prepared […]

Make it so!

Posted on June 1st, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

Lately, I’ve been feeling a bit under the weather, so there was not much gaming (or even painting) going on. However, a couple of days ago, we had some friends over and decided to try a game I’ve had lying…

Choosing a faction

Posted on May 31st, 2018 under , , , , . Posted by

So the Antares slow-grow league is getting close to starting at The Sentry Box here in Calgary. I had previously narrowed my choice down to the Ghar Outcast Rebels or the Isorians. I was quite certain that I was going to choose the Ghar but one of the other players is going to play Ghar […]

Unique BGoA tactics

Posted on May 31st, 2018 under , , . Posted by

So I have been reading through the Beyond the Gates of Antares rulebook in the last week with an eye to what new elements the game brings to the table. Here are a few features that I think are unique to BGoA that I am looking forward to trying out in games. Compressor Drones Compressor […]

I am home alone this week as I might have mentioned, busy trying to stay alive until SHE gets back, according to her of course I am lost without her. It’s Moroccan salmon with spicy cous-cous tonight, and not out of a tin, take that. At a loose en…

Adeptus Arbites

Posted on May 27th, 2018 under , , , , , , . Posted by

The Adeptus Arbites are sort of a galactic police force in the 40K universe, charged by the High Lords of Terra with enforcing the law throughout the Imperium. I thought it would be handy to have a few for role-playing or certain tabletop scenarios in …
