What’s on Thor’s Workbench Lately?

Nothing all that special today. I haven’t been posting much hobby stuff lately, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been hobbying!

I have some work on my Chaos Knight to show soon’ish, but not today. I’m trying to reach a good point on the painting where you can see things coming together. Right now it’s all over the place.

Chaos Bikes – WIP

I did decide to take a break from the Knight, and I started working on painting up 3 Chaos Bikes.

Apparently it’s C L Werner week at the Black Library…

Blacklibrary.com is celebrating C L Werner this week, and we managed to get some words from the man himself, giving us his take on some of his most popular and iconic characters.
Matthias Thulmann,
Witch Hunter

“My earliest foray into the worlds of Warhammer was with the character of Mathias Thulmann, a Sigmarite witch hunter who prowls the hinterlands of the Empire rooting out foes as varied as necromancers and sorcerers to skaven and vampires.

The first Thulmann novel, simply ‘Witch Hunter’, was written as, essentially, a Hammer horror film set in the Old World. The premise of taking an individual similar to (real life witch hunter) Matthew Hopkins but in situations where the witchcraft is much more than idle superstition had a great appeal to me.”

Brunner the
Bounty Hunter

“Brunner is a character who really did write himself, a circumstance that has occurred only twice in my career. What I mean by that is the personality was so strong, so persuasive, that I’d find myself altering entire narratives because, as Brunner would correctly inform me, he wouldn’t do what my plot called for him to do… The rugged bounty killer is something of a mainstay these days,

but the first time their ilk really impressed me was in the Italian westerns of the 1960s. Brunner takes a lot of inspiration from such characters (he must be a fan as well).”

Grey Seer Thanquol

“As created by William King, Thanquol is an inveterate coward, a bully, a paranoid lunatic, fawning sycophant – and at the same time one of the most hideously powerful sorcerers in the Old World.

I think the key to writing skaven effectively is to first ‘think like a rat’, seeing the world through their perspective. Once you do that, well, that paranoia isn’t so illogical since every other skaven really is out to get you if they think it will help their own status.

Of all the characters in the lore, Thanquol is my favourite, so being allowed to play with him was truly a special moment.”
 

Iron Warriors

“The idea of doing a Space Marines Battles book from the perspective of a Traitor Legion was one that had enormous appeal and building off the brief description of the Siege of Castellax left a great deal of room to develop and explore.

When creating the 3rd Grand Company of the Iron Warriors, I strove to make each of them a unique sort of monster. Their callous disdain for life, their ruthless pragmatism, all of these are qualities that are rightly shunned in men, but they are assets to beings that were engineered to be the pinnacle of warfare, living weapons to be set upon the enemy. Of course, with the Iron Warriors, the enemy often includes their own…”

More from C L Werner
With more than a decade of writing for Black Library behind him, there’s much more to explore, encompassing the worlds of Warhammer Fantasy Battles, Warhammer 40,000 and Warhammer Age of Sigmar. We’ve collected all his works together for you to check out.

“Fish Tank Phooey!” Tau vs Raven Guard 1500pts Battle Report

Posted on July 16th, 2016 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

“Fish Tank Phooey!” Tau vs Raven Guard 1500pts Battle Report

Hello there fellow warmongers!  Having been super busy with work recently, I have scaled back with the old wargaming a bit.  However I did manage to sneak in a battle with my Friend Simon and his rapscallion space marines last week.

Although they may look like Ultramarines, don’t be fooled! Oh no, those sneaky Raven Guard are up to their old tricks again, aiming to confuse the enemy by borrowing another chapters heraldry!  Composed of a Talon Strike Force, the Raven Guard in this detachment are looking to get right up in the enemy’s face asap and overwhelm them.  We are also playing Maelstrom, so the Drop Pods will give them a bit of objective control (provided they land on target of course!) while the jump pack troops, bikers and land speeder should give them a bit of maneuverability.

Epic 30K – odsłona 36: Land Raidery terminatorów | Epic 30K – part 36 – Terminators’ Land Raiders

Posted on July 14th, 2016 under , , , , , . Posted by

Terminatorzy – wiadomo, przedstawiać nie trzeba, ciężka piechota legionów Astartes. Mormeg pomalował swoich dawno temu, czas też na moich. Wielu ich nie będzie, raptem cztery podstawki, ale przyda im się transport. Wyznaczyłem do tego, spośród kilku możliwości, najprostsze Land Raidery, choć w przyszłości zapewne pomaluję coś bardziej sexy, w rodzaju Drop Podów czy może nawet, jeśli uda się kupić coś nieoficjalnego, Assault Ram. Ale to pieś, zapewne odległej, przyszłości.
Modele to stareńkie plastiki, oczywiście znacznie gorsze od nowszych metalowych modeli, niemniej jednak mają jedną zaletę – przedstawiają rzeczywiście starą wersję tych pojazdów, które zresztą malowałem już wcześniej. Nowe, dla wyróżnienia, mają drobny akcent kolorystyczny w przedniej części kadłuba.
Terminators – heavy infantry of Legions of Astartes. Mormeg has painted his detachement ages ago, now it is time for my unit. There won’t be many of them, just minimal number of stands, four, but they could use some transport. I decided to paint just standard Land Raiders for them, but in the future I will probably paint something more sexy, Drop Pods or – if I will be able to buy something unofficial – Assault Ram. But this is for the future.

Models are very old and plastic, much worse then newer metals but with one important advantage – they depict correct, Horus Heresy erea, older variant of this vehicle, which I already painted a few. New ones have red stripe painted on the front of the hull, to make them more distinctive on the battlefield.




Devil at the Crossroads – Dancing with Competitive Lists

Devil at the Crossroads – Dancing with Competitive Lists

~Don’t sell your soul to the Devil at the Crossroads, you don’t have to give up the fluff to be competitive.~

One of the phrases I dislike the most in Warhammer 40k or any game really is the phrase “I just built this list for fun.” Or it’s sister phrase “This is just a fluffy list.”  As though the player of that list needs to find an excuse for a possible loss he might not even have experienced yet.  A story driven theme and a list that “pulls no punches” need not be mutually exclusive, we are all here to “have fun”.  Too often in our hobby we fall into the trap of letting others intimidate us into believing that when we get to the crossroads of list building we only have two choices:  Fluff build or WAAC build (WAAC being another term much maligned and misused but that will be another blog).  We do in fact have a third choice, one that blends a story driven list with point efficiency and coverage of battlefield roles to take all comers.  Clearly some lists do this better than others, but since we are here to meet the Devil, I will be discussing Chaos Daemons in their various forms and codices.

Black Library authors discussing their favourite Black Library books…

Path of the Warrior
by Gav Thorpe
 
Chosen by David Annandale
“I adore Gav Thorpe’s entire Eldar trilogy, but I must choose one book, and so I’ll choose the first: Path of the Warrior. 
The task of this book is not an easy one – there are no human characters here to speak of, except as antagonists, so the challenge is to give us protagonists who feel properly alien while still inviting our engagement and sympathy. Path of the Warrior does this admirably.

On top of that, we get a rich, convincing sense of the culture of Craftworld Alaitoc, and a layered sense of the majestic tragedy that is the path of the Eldar. We see this on the macro scale, in the events confronting Alaitoc, but on the personal as well, as we follow the transformation of Korlandril from artist to warrior, and the full, terrible loss that comes with that transformation. 

And as if that isn’t enough, Gav pulls off a stylistic tour de force that made me gasp when I realised what was happening. The Exarchs speak in hexameter triplets. The effect is subtle, and makes the Exarchs even more alien and forbidding. Not only that, but what is more fitting than to have these legendary warriors speak in the meter of the epics of old? As a reader, I was delighted by the experience. As a writer, I am agog with envy and admiration.”
You can buy Path of the Warrior now and see for yourself what David loves so much. And join us next month for another Hall of Fame entry, chosen by another, different, David…

Epic 30K – odsłona 35: transport World Eaters | Epic 30K – part 35: World Eaters AFVs

Posted on July 6th, 2016 under , , , , , , . Posted by

Częścią planu dokańczania naszych epicowych armii są prozaiczne rhino – obowiązkowy transport oddziałów piechoty. Mormeg domalował cztery pojazdy tego typu, dzięki czemu łączna wartość jego już w pełni legalnej armii wynosi 2615 punktów. Co oznacza, że muszę trochę podgonić…:) Malowanie identyczne jak w przypadku opisywanych wcześniej vindicatorów. Mam jednak wrażenie, że te ostatnie rhino są jednymi z najlepiej pomalowanych w jego armii.
Part of our plan of finally finishing our epic armies are lowly standard rhinos – mandatory transport vehicles for infantry. Mormeg has finished final four such vehicles reaching total army value of 2615 points. Which means, that I have to paint faster…;)
Painting was done as described here, in the vindicators entry but I think that this final four rhinos are one of the best painted vehicles in the whole army.

Tau Seek to Enlighten Chaos – 1,650 Battle Report

Posted on July 1st, 2016 under , , , , , , . Posted by

Tau Seek to Enlighten Chaos – 1,650 Battle Report

I’ve jumped back over to my Khorne Daemonkin the past few weeks. After having played Chaos Daemons at a tournament, something urged me to give KDK another shot. I had not played them for about 6 months until last week. I was anxious to see if I could do better than last I played.

Lately I’ve run very top-heavy lists, so I took that approach with my Khorne Daemonkin list. Plus, it would be very different from what I had done, which was not working.
