Showcase: Disciples of Twilight Chaos Bikers – Squad #2

As promised in the showcase with the first squad of Bikers, here’s the second squad.

As with the first squad, these guys are just tabletop quality. There’s nothing fancy going on at all with this unit. Well, unless you count that cool lean they got going on while they zoom around. They got mad skillz, yo.

With the first squad, I also talked about how I did the snow different on the tires with this unit.

Eternal Wargamer’s Hobby Update #1

Greetings Wargamers and Hobbyists, and welcome to a new format for regular updates from the Eternal Merry go Round of gaming, hobbying, modelling and collecting (which includes new purchases!).

I hope that this new format will allow me to check in with the community on a more regular basis and prompt discussions about various aspects of the hobby here on the Creative Twilight blog, while at the same time leaving me room to go nuts when I have an in-depth topic to cover as a separate dedicated article.

Dark Angels Are Here for the Fallen – Chaos Battle Report

Dark Angels Are Here for the Fallen – Chaos Battle Report

Lately I’ve been playing around with the Black Legion Warband formation. I won’t detail it, but basically the formation consists of the power armor units. The benefits are rolling twice on the Chaos Boon table, when applicable, and choosing one or both results. Also, in any phase in which an enemy unit is completely destroyed, the rest of the warband gets to re-roll 1’s to-hit and to-wound for that phase.

It’s a neat idea, and the re-rolls are what drew me to it.

Mr. Fluffy goes to Tourney Town Pt. 4 – Tyranids

Mr. Fluffy goes to Tourney Town Pt. 4 – Tyranids

Hello there fellow warmongers!  I’m back with another of ‘Fluffy List for Competitive People’, and this time I’m going to try and build a Tyranids List!

Not sure what the Hive Mind would make of this. Is it even edible?

Now ‘nids are having a fairly tough time of it at tournaments, in FLGSs and well, just about anywhere at the moment.  It seems that unless you are willing to run flying Hive Tyrant Spam (yawwwwwn) you don’t got a hope in hell of winning games.

Building a Better Bug – Tyranid list building in 7th edition

Tyranids in my humble opinion are an amazing army to collect, but suffer from “really cool models, not so cool rules” syndrome. There have been two back to back codex releases which have been problematic to say the least, serving to punish new and existing players alike. So, sadly, there are alot of problems, however there are bright spots in each slot so that no matter what your choices, you can build an effective list.

Z półki Mormega: Titanicus

Posted on August 13th, 2016 under , , , , . Posted by

Uważni czytelnicy recenzji książek Black Library, jakie pojawiają się na Miniwojnie, orientują się zapewne, że lubię książki Dana Abnetta. Lubię jego styl pisania i przemawia do mnie jego wizja światów Imperium, cokolwiek różniąca się w szczegółach od rockretowego kanonu. Podobają mi się również motywacje rządzącego jego bohaterami, zwłaszcza drugoplanowymi – tak było w Ravenorze, tak było również w Eisenhornie, dwóch moich ulubionych cyklach tego pisarza.
Recenzowana powieść nie jest, oczywiście, żadną nowością, jej pierwsze wydanie ukazało się na rynku w 2008 r. jakoś jednak nie miałem do tej okazji jej poznać. Zabrałem ją ze sobą na urlop, skuszony trochę wizją nadchodzącej, nowej wersji epica.
Fabuła opowiada o świecie-kuźni Orestes, na który niespodziewanie spada atak wyznawców Chaosu, będący częścią walk określanych jako krucjata Sabbat. Atak jest niezwykle silny, bierze w nim udział bardzo duża grupa tytanów chaosu. Przeciwko nim Orestes może wystawić jedynie szczątkowe siły własnego Legio Titanicus, Legio Tempestus, gdyż zdecydowana większość maszyn legionu bierze udział w krucjacie.
W rezultacie napaści tytanów Chaosu rozbite, a właściwie rozgromione zostają stacjonujące na Orestes planetarne siły obronne pierwszego i drugiego rzutu, do walki rzucane są jednostki trzeciorzutowe, tyłowe.
Na szczęście dla obrońców, gubernatorowi Orestes udaje się uzyskać pomoc od Legio Invicta, legionu tytanów spieszącego na główny front krucjaty, którego flota przelatuje akurat w relatywnej bliskości planety. Walka staje się bardziej wyrównana, pojawia się nawet nadzieja na zwycięstwo.
Niemniej jednak walki tytanów, opisywane zresztą z typową dla autora swobodą, są tylko częścią akcji. Okazuje się bowiem, że najazd sił Chaosu staje się okazją do przejęcia władzy w kuźni. Przejęcia, dodam, mogącego potencjalnie zagrozić sojuszowi Marsa i Terry, gdyż środkiem do zamachu stanu jest ujawnienie zapomnianej wiedzy o Imperatorze i Omnissiahu. Jak widać, gra idzie o naprawdę dużą stawkę.
Trudno jest wskazać jednoznacznie bohatera powieści – akcja toczy się bowiem wokół działań kilku praktycznie równorzędnych postaci. To, między innymi, jeden z dowódców tytana Legio Invicta, kobieta-żołnierz planetarnych sił obronnych, dowódca oddziału pancernego gwardii imperialnej, łączniczka między siłami Imperium i Mechanicum. Opis ich działań nie łączy się ze sobą, pozornie nie są one nawet niczym ze sobą związane, by dopiero pod koniec książki połączyć się w jedno zakończenie, w jeden splot wielu wątków.
Wspomniałem o opisach walk tytanów – są napisane barwnym, fajnym językiem, wydarzenia stają przed oczami wyobraźni, pojawia się kilka interesujących sytuacji, jak polowanie na obcą maszynę przy użyciu sensorów audio, czy atak hord skitarii Mrocznego Mechanicum na jedną z boskich maszyn. Niemniej jednak przypuszczam, że kilkaset stron takiej akcji szybko znudziłoby czytelnika. Wspomniałem już jednak, że lubię bohaterów Abnetta – także i tutaj autor mnie nie zawiódł. Opis stosunków panujących w załogach tytanów, perypetie męża członkini planetarnych sił obronnych, pozostałego do obsługi portu kosmicznego, wydarzenia w mieście-kuźni i stojący za nimi członkowie Mechanicum w barwny sposób dopełniają obrazu walczącego świata, pozwalając nieco odpocząć od huku gigantycznych dział i wyjących tryumfalnie klaksonów zwycięskich tytanów.
Sposób pisania Abnetta, uwaga, jaką przykłada do swoich postaci, jest czymś odświeżającym w powieściach BL. Zazwyczaj bohaterowie tego rodzaju, postaci drugiego planu, są zaledwie kartonowym tłem dla herosów opisywanych przez innych autorów – tu jest nieco inaczej. Postaci nabierają głębi i tracą dwuwymiarowość – świetnym przykładem jest powoli staczający się w mrok zapomnienia, łączący się w jedno ze swoim tytanem jeden z pricepsów Legio Invicta. Trudno jednak powiedzieć, by bohaterowie Titanicus byli równie pełni życia jak bohaterowie większych cyklów tego samego autora – o co raczej zresztą byłoby trudno, biorąc pod uwagę objętość książki i cyklu, choćby, Eisenhorn.
Z pewnością Titanicus nie jest dziełem wybitnym, nie jest też najlepszą pozycją w dorobku Abnetta. Nie przeszkadza mi to jednak w uznaniu, że te kilka godzin, jakie poświęciłem na lekturę tej książki, nie zostały zmarnowane. Titanicus to solidna porcja lektury ze świata Wh40K, na dodatek książka poruszaja stosunkowo rzadko pojawiający się aspekt tego uniwersum. Warto przeczytać. 

Epic 30K odsłona 37: Terminatorzy w żółci | Epic 30K part 37: Terminators in yellow

Posted on August 10th, 2016 under , , , , , . Posted by

Tytuł dość jednoznaczny – cztery podstawki terminatorów mojego legionu Imperialnych Pięści. Modele metalowe Games Workshop z najnowszej, jak dotąd, inkarnacji gry, czyli gdzieś z przełomu wieków. Jako dowódca wstawiony jest model, zdaje się, kapelana – nie jest to jednoznacznie widoczne, więc uznałem, że będzie odpowiedni.
Malowanie dość proste – biały podkład, Iyanden Darksun z aerografu, wash Devlan Mud, a potem wyciąganie szczegółów żółtym z domieszką bieli, detale czarne. Modele są dość szczegółowe – jak na tę skalę – z pewnością jednak przy obecnej technologii można byłoby zrobić je lepsze. Mam jeszcze kilka miniaturek terminatorów, więc może w przyszłości rozwinę ten oddział….
Title is straightforward I think – four stands of my Imperial Fists Legion. Miniatures casted from metal by Games Workshop during newest, yet, incarnation of Epic game – turn of the centuries I think. Leader miniature is a chaplain I think – it is not obviously clear, so it fits nicely.

Painting really simple – white undercoat, Iyanden Darksun painted with airbrush, then Devlan Mud wash and details picked out with yellow/white mix, some details black or red. Miniatures are relatively detailed – considering it is 6mm scale – but I’m sure that today’s technology would make them even better.

As I still have some terminator miniatures left, I will probably make this unit bigger – in the future;)

Space Wolf Dreamin’ – My List Thoughts

A few months ago, I got bit by the Space Wolf.

Bug.  I meant the Space Wolf bug, the one that inspires you to take on a new army and buy a bunch of new toys and then?  Leave them piled up on top of your bookshelf for months without paying them any more attention.

*SIGH*

But, since I don?t have anyone to play with, it?s not that big a deal.  When I get back to the States next year and have a normal non-life-dominating job, I intend to start hobbying again.  That will include, slowly but surely, assembling and (hopefully) painting my oft dreamed of Space Wolf force.
