Warhammer World GT3 – Game 0 Tyranids v Nurgle Space Marines

Posted on March 9th, 2018 under , , , , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Game 0 of GT3 as we went early we arrived at Warhammer World at lunch time, ate and then had tables booked for two, half-two. I’d played Otty and Ben in the run up so it was only right I rocked up against Liam’s Nurgle Chaos Space Marines and DeamonsTh…

Warhammer World GT3 – Game 4 Tyranids v Aeldari [Eldar]

Posted on March 5th, 2018 under , , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Game 4 of GT3 and I am a hot mess. I’m regretting the beer, yesterday’s lunch of curry [fab as it was] and sheesh kebab [which was far spicier than I would have liked]. Steve Parker is facing me with a host of Wraith Guard [mainly hiding in the webway]…

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

Game 2 of GT3 and Morgan Cole and I have been asked to play live on Warhammer TV! I obviously had to concentrate a lot on the game so pictures were taken only sparingly and I’m a bit shaky on what happened but I’ll be going back over the Twitch feed to…

Posted on February 23rd, 2018 under , , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

First game of GT3 and I’m facing the spectacularly bearded Ben Briscoe and his filthy looking Orks made up of excellent Battle Wagon – Taurox Conversions and some of the artillery guns kitbashed from spare [looted!] Tau weaponry. As mentioned my recoll…

2000pts battle report – Tyranids v Tyranids

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

It’s been quite a while since I played Otty, but I figured it would do us both good to pit our nids against each other to help us get up to speed for GT3. More for him as he has limited 8th edition experience but with us both running gribblies there wa…

‘nids part 241 – Trygon – Moar shots

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

Oh man! I mean look at it. It’s far from a perfect picture, In fact the positioning of the model make it actually very difficult to work out what’s going on but the colours are fabulous.Composition wise I think this is much better but sadly less dynami…

‘nids part 240 – Trygon – TO DONE!

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

The Trygon is complete, although I hadn’t glued his head on at this stage [yeah I don’t know why either?].Annoyingly when I did glue it in place I still got the torso out of whack, which meant the head still isn’t straight and more importantly couldn’t…

‘nids part 237 – Trygon – Toxin/Plasma

Posted on January 22nd, 2018 under , , , , . Posted by

Toxin Sac and Plasma effect next. I had originally planned to do a video of the green being applied but foolishly shook my Dark Green Valejo paint just before I began, which given how the process specifically requires the paint to remain un-mixed re…

Work continues to be split among the ‘nids and Dark Angels. I managed to finish all the first Chitin highlights on the Trygon’s tail and I havevn’t gone mad in the process!I then allocated some time, while flitting between the Predator and Land Speeder…

‘nids part 234 – Rippers & Trygon – Bonewhite & Chitin highlights, Fleshy bits and stuff

Posted on December 22nd, 2017 under , , , , , . Posted by

It’s all mixed up now. I cracked on with the Rippers, as you can see they are almost complete. Not sure if its 100% clear they’re bursting from the ground but they definitely look a lot better than my original Rippers.These need their teeth painting, a…

‘nids part 229 – Trygon & Genestealer Broodlord/Patriarch – Bonewhite & Chitin highlights

Posted on December 8th, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

Just because it’s smaller and more managable I’ve focused on the Broodlord. I finished the Chitin and both Bonewhite highlights I highlighted the skulls on the base, I went bleached white so it was a little different to the Bonewhite.If you zoom in you…

The Army Painter Soft Tone wash [sepia] has been applied. I know a lot of folk decry the current Citadel paint pots for their ability to tip over when using a wash/shade, obviously I found my own solution to that problem. I also found out that some of …
