Khorne Daemonkin Game & Thoughts

Kharn Approves

On Wednesday I played an 1,850 game with my Khorne Daemonkin, Disciples of Twilight, against Orks. Instead of doing a full-on report I’ll just cover it briefly to move on to my thoughts, which is the focus for the article. Khorne Daemonkin vs Orks Gabe’s Ork list was very shooty. Between the Kill Bursta tank, […]

Fratris Salutem 2015 Game

Saturday was Fratris Salutem, the 40K event I’ve been working on throughout the winter. We only had 10 players of the allotted 20 but considering the type of even it is, 10 is a good number. Not everyone is into a story driven narrative day of gaming…though why they wouldn’t be eludes me ;) The […]

Forge World Realm of Battle Cityscape

As part of a previous commission for the Secret Weapon tabletop tiles, these Forge World Realm of Battle boards were to match up with the color scheme (that of a Warhammer 40k Shrine World). There are three boards here; the Genatorum Nexus (a big power generator), the Manufactorum sector (a factory) and the Space

Assassinorum Execution Force Assassin Showcase

Posted on May 11th, 2015 under , , . Posted by

 It’s always really rewarding to find some time to paint my own models! Painting full time during the week means I rarely want to spend my evenings and weekends painting more models – unless I’m quite inspired to do so! Usually this involves painting for an event (such as my Tomb King last May for Battle Brothers) or a campaign […]

On Wednesday I played a game against Iron Hands with my Khorne Daemonkin army, Disciples of Twilight. People are preparing for Fratris Salutem and testing out their lists, including Carl, my opponent. I was running short on time so I grabbed the list I played last weekend instead of drafting up something new to try. […]

Epic 30K: pozostali Word Bearers | Epic 30K: further Word Bearers

Posted on May 5th, 2015 under , , , , , . Posted by

Mormeg wstrzymywany nieco z pracami nad pojazdami przez brak istotnych podstawek, podgonił piechotę swoich sojuszników, Niosących Słowo. To, w zasadzie, podstawki praktycznie identyczne z tymi pokazywanymi w poprzednim wpisie. Na uwagę zasługuje co innego. Może nie widać tego specjalnie na tych zdjęciach (moim zdaniem jednak widać), ale są trochę lepszej jakości niż foty wrzucane wcześniej, zwłaszcza kolory. Zdecydowałem się na dość desperacki krok – postanowiłem zrobić zdjęcia swoim Samsungiem SIII. Zaopatrzony w program do robienia fotek dający znacznie większą kontrolę nad parametrami fotografii niż defaultowa aplikacja i osadzony na trójnogu okazał się zadziwiająco dobrym wyborem. W jednym z kolejnych wpisów pokażę różnice robione moim starym cyfrowym debilaparatem, a tymi wykonanymi telefonem… Od dziś zdjęcia na blog będą robione właśnie SIII.
Some of the Mormeg’s Epic projects were temporary on hold due to lack of proper bases, vehicles especially, but my brother painted some of his allies infantry instead. Word Bearers shown here are, basically, identical with the batch shown in one of the previous entries. But there is one thing different. It is not that visible maybe (but I think it is) but photos are of slightly better quality then the ones shown before, colors especially are much better. I decided to take some drastic measures, disgusted by my old digital camera – my Samsung Galaxy SIII came to help. With a new photo app instead of default one and firmly sitting on the tripod, phone turned out to be suprisingly good digital camera. I will show differences between old and new photos in one of the future threads… but all future photos for this blog I will make with my SIII I think…


Red Scorpion Vehicles Commission Showcase

I have an ongoing commission for Red Scorpion vehicles, about one a month at the moment. The first batch consisted of a Predator, Vindicator, Storm Talon, Storm Raven and a Venerable Dreadnought. A lot of the techniques used can be found in the Forge World Masterclass book (book two I think!). I really enjoy weathering as it’s a completely different […]

Najlepsze filmy o Warhammerze 40000 | Best Warhammer 40000 movies

Posted on April 30th, 2015 under , , , , . Posted by

Kilka dni temu napisałem, na fali zainteresowania wywołanego zapowiedzią gry Total War: Warhammer, notkę o moich ulubionych filmach CGI z tego uniwersum. Dziś czas na drugą część, tym razem dotyczącą Warhammera 40000. Samo zadanie okazało się trochę trudniejsze, głównie dlatego, że ponury świat przyszłości pokazany był w znacznie większej liczbie produkcji…
Koniec końców, na miejsce pierwsze trafiło intro do gry Dawn of War 2. Moim zdaniem jeden z najlepszych filmów dotyczących produktów Games Workshop w ogóle, i – sam w sobie – świetny kawał roboty animatorów. Doskonały drednot, świetnie przedstawieni eldarzy… Bardzo go lubię, i z wyborem zwycięzcy nie miałem problemów.
Na drugim miejscu, po dość długim zastanawianiu się, trafiła filmowa zapowiedź gry jeszcze powstającej – Space Hulk: Deathwing. Tu przemawia do mnie wiele rzeczy. Pięknie pokazani terminatorzy różnych zakonów, świetne genokrady i muzyka. Całkowicie odmienna od pompatycznych, epickich utworów, jakie zazwyczaj towarzyszą produkcjom tego rodzaju. Sam Space Hulk, zapewne, nie zdoła zainteresować mnie na dłużej, niemniej jednak trailer tej gry bardzo mi się podoba.
Trzecie miejsce przypadło w udziale wcześniejszej grze z serii Dawn of War. Widać już po nim pewne niedoskonałości techniczne, powstało jednak stosunkowo dawno temu, szczególnie jeśli weźmiemy postęp w dziedzinie grafiki komputerowej, jaki dokonał się w ciągu ostatnich lat. Podoba mi się jednak nadal, a scena szarży marines i strzały z drednota do dziś budzą we mnie ciarki…
Co bardziej spostrzegawczy Czytelnicy zauważyli może, że tym razem tytuł notki nie zawiera skrótu CGI. I tak właśnie powinno być. Tuż za podium ustawiłem bowiem film, w którym efekty komputerowe odgrywają znikomą rolę. Nic zresztą dziwnego, dzieło to powstało bowiem w 1996 r., a wykorzystuje zdjęcia pochodzące z jeszcze wcześniejszego okresu. Mam na myśli film krótkometrażowy Inquisitor, w oprócz ujęć powstałych w czasie rozmów o kręceniu filmu osadzonego w uniwersum WH40K, wykorzystano też zdjęcia zrealizowane wcześniej do filmików “Hive Infestation” i “Blood for the Blood God”. Wszystkie trzy filmy powstały z okazji 25-lecia firmy. W czasie Games Day 1996 dwa wymienione ostatnio pokazywano wielokrotnie na ekranach hali, w której odbywała się impreza, można też było obejrzeć kostiumy wykorzystane przy produkcji filmików. Ja sam mam zaś gdzieś jeszcze kasetę wideo, dawaną podczas tego dnia przez GW ich gościom. Sam film… cóż, nie jest najlepszy, ale mam do niego sentyment:)
Few days ago, just after release of Warhammer: Total War trailer, I wrote a short note with my personal top three CGI Warhammer movies. Today it is time to write something about Warhammer 40000 movies. This task was a little more difficult, as Wh40K movies are much more numerous…

Finally, I narrowed my options and the winner is… Cinematic intro for Dawn of War 2 game. It is, in my opinion, one of the best CGI movies done for Games Workshop games and very good CGI movie in itself. I love few particular scenes, as dreadnought flaming Eldar, or Eldar witch fightning with Space Marine commander. Well, first place was easy.



Second place wasn’t so easy though. After some thinking I decided that it should go to one of the trailers of upcoming Space Hulk: Deathwing game, Rise of Terminators to be more precise. I really like montage of this short movie, terminators, great genestealers and music. Music especially is totally different then epic songs which are usually accompanying such footage. I’m not a huge fan of Space Hulk games and I think that this one won’t be any different but I like this trailer a lot.



Dawn of War game’s intro took third position. It is the oldest from those three movies and it clearly shows. Computer graphic is MUCH better now then it was eleven years ago. I like it much though and dreadnought and marines charge still give me goosebumps.


Well… Previous note about movies has had a CGI word in the title. This one is different, as I wanted to mention one particular and really old movie, with very few computer graphic used. I’m sure that they were state of the art back in 1996 but now… let’s just say that they clearly show how old are they;) Anyway, I would like to bring your attention to Inquisitor movie from 1996. Some of the footage used in this short movie came from two different, even shorter movies (Hive Infestation and Blood for the Blood God). All three movies were made on Games Workshop 25 anniversary. I remember, that Hive Infestation and Blood were being played over and over again at Games Day 1996 in Birmingham, some props were being on display too. I still have somewhere a VHS cassette with both those movies, which was being handed by GW to their official guests on this day…

From time to time we get some terrain commissions which I thoroughly enjoy doing as it is a different way of painting compared to painting miniatures and it also gives me an excuse to get some time with the airbrush. Well for this commission I got a whole heap of time with the Airbrush.

6 months ago I took a leave of absence.

Still complicated but I am happier. It’s taken a lot of reflection and a […]

Ultramarine Tactical Squad Commission Showcase

Posted on April 24th, 2015 under , , , . Posted by

I was asked to paint one of the Space Marine Tactical Squads in 5th Company Ultamarine colours. I’ve never actually seen the new Tactical Squad kit until now – it’s a great kit. Everything fits together nicely and the details are all crisp, it made them very enjoyable to work on.  I went for an overall neater scheme than usual […]
