Tinkerturf, the heavy-card pre-finished Terrain kits from TinkerHouse games has now released their excellent Terrain Kits to the public! I show off three of the kits fully assembled and actually walk through how easy they are to build.

Back in January, before the Genestealer Cult release/'Day of Ascension' you may recall the Warhammer Community Facebook post about the Genestealer Cult Graffiti.Well it transpired that it was in Manchester [where I work] and I immediately recognised the area and visited it as my own pilgrimage to meet this 3-armed Emperor. I took some pictures but promplty forgot to share them on the blog, though probably did on twitter. It was amazing to see Chris Howker's work first hand [even if it had been defaced and repaired the day before].It was quite the experience, even if the weather was a bit grim. But an amazing piece and still in-situ and pristine in Manchester's Northern Quarter on Thomas Street.Alongside the Kellermorph are some equally filthy furry Xenos, which I believe are Flerken. And these skelebob creatures that might have been done by Jay Sharples Art. Teh full mural. And this heresy - burn it! 🔥🔥🔥🔥
For my second Imperial Knight, magnetising the Chainsword/Power Glove options was a little bit more complicated then the ranged weapon options on the first Knight. The first step was to get all the bits laid out so I could work out where to make the magnetised joint and what spacers were required for the magnets. I had to do plenty of trimming and drilling on the main arm joint to take a 6mm diameter magnet. Another magnet was added in the Chainsword join on top of some plasticard spacer. This should work well when the whole thing is painted and fitted together.
Hi all,Welcome to the first of my detailed unit reviews for the Primaris Marines, the Gravis Captain! Available in the Dark Imperium Boxed Set, but interestingly, not separately as a clampack, the Gravis Captain is the heaviest class of HQ currently available to the Primaris Marines.Read more »
"2019 is the year I get serious about adding some armor." I sent that text to a buddy that I play the Horus Heresy against a while back and now it seems like I'm trying to make good on that promise. This week, I built and painted a Sicaran Battle Tank to add to my Imperial Fists. I've always liked the look of the Sicaran - it hits a lot of the design beats of the Land Raider, while maintaining a sleek, predatory look all its own. And it'll add a ton of firepower to the army.A Tactical Squad Sergeant gives some idea of the scale of the Sicaran.The kit was a pretty easy build. The only real issues I had was some of the resin where the massive feed gates on the tracks were cut off left two areas that weren't totally cured. I simply cut some plasticard and covered over these areas - easy peasy. Otherwise, the rest of the kit was a dream. Very little warping to correct, and reasonably tight fits otherwise. I tried to keep the tank pretty simple - its very easy to go nuts with weathering and chipping. I wanted
It’s time for another GMG Review – this time it’s Warhammer 40000’s Imperium Nihilus: Vigilus Ablaze and its companion book – Codex: Chaos Space Marines.
Surprise! Did you see that coming? Of course not, because they are Raven Guard, covert warfare specialists... I don’t usually share my Raven Guard on the blog because they are my 'gaming army’ I paint them cleanly but simply. I do however love the Dark Fury assault squad from Forge World which I use as Vanguard Veterans in games. I was pleased with how they came out when I painted them so I thought I would share them with you.More after the jump
Hi all,Welcome to my detailed review of the Primaris units within the Space Marine codex. I’m very much hoping for this to be a ‘living’ document for want of a better term, and so as FAQ’s etc are released I’ll update this, and any comments or insight that you guys can provide will most certainly be added to the review.I’ve tried several times over the years to define a method for assessing units, and my latest iteration of that will take an appropriately legendary 40k approach, which I’m calling the MARBO method.MobilityThis section will cover all the mobility stats and options available to a particular unit, assessing whether it’s a strength or weakness of the model, what can be done to mitigate any weaknesses or enhance its strengths.AurasKind of self-explanatory, but equally, I’ll try to look a little beyond the obvious to understand how those auras can be stretched, where they are most effective and how best to utilise them on the battlefield. Auras I have found are one of those areas that has far more d
Hi all,Like many of us I suspect, I’ve been eagerly devouring any information I can find on the Shadowspear boxed set recently, watching YouTube reviews from my favoured channels and trawling the interwebs for more in-depth stuff that doesn’t really seem to be available.I’m working on an in-depth review of all the Primaris units for this very blog, but the nature of such an analysis means that the posts will take time to prepare. Much as I hate to admit it therefore, this will be a very broad-brush look at the new vanguard units, bear with me please as I play-test them and gain more insight into how they can be best employed.Read more »
Hi All!Once again, something a little off the beaten path today.This time it's some Pink Horrors from the Warhammer universe. I did up a batch of these for a few reasons. First, they're wonderfully weird miniatures, with lots of animation and tons of whacky things going on with their constantly morphing bodies - so lots of fun picking out the details with the brush and colour.Secondly, I needed a few of these for our ongoing Dark Heresy RPG campaign. Next session the adventurers enter an ancient abandoned Imperator Titan and some of these guys pop in from the warp to make things interesting for the party. Weee!Finally, one of these (his choice) will be going to Barks as a big thank you for being such a great minion in this year's Painting Challenge. Thanks Barks!Thanks for dropping in folks!Curt
Hey everyone. Precipice news bringing you tales of a Xeno with more nose-holes than limbs – the ever creepy Urghul. More after the Mag- lift.More after the jump
After a brief distraction with the Red Redemptionists, I'm back to painting the Eldar I need for the Battleforce: Recon tournament next month. (Actually I STARTED those Red Redemptionists BEFORE I started on all the Eldar, so, it's more that I took a break from the Eldar to finish off something that I'd already started).These are a relatively recent acquisition - most of the Eldar I'm painting up I've had for years and just never gotten around to painting them. I never had any Dark Reapers, though. I didn't really NEED them as I have three Wraithlords, which would take care of any Heavy Support requirement to fill out a Brigade detachment... but this batch popped up on eBay and weren't too outrageously priced, so I picked them up to have a few more options.(Also I saw some Knight players moaning about Dark Reapers on a thread somewhere - and as there are so very many Knight players around here, I figured they might be something handy to have - though I have to admit, I'm not sure why they were so terrified by
A month or so ago I picked up a few more Red Redemptionists of eBay and have been painting them over the last few weeks.The new additions.The whole gang.Are they a "Gang"...? Or more of a Secret Society...? or Cult...? I suppose in Necromunda rules parlance they would have been a "gang", but fluff-wise there really more of a cult of fanatics. I wonder if they'll ever come out with new minis and rules for them in the new Necromunda?PriestDeaconsZealot - Because wielding an Eviscerator isn't crazy enough... he's got a FLAMETHROWER attached to the bottom.Brethren or CrusadersThese guys will most likely see action as baddies in Wrath & Glory - though I thought it might also be fun to field them as a unit of adepts in an Inquisitor's retinue in 40K - or maybe Kill Team, if they ever come out with rules for Inquisitorial Kill Teams (or perhaps I should say "WHEN"... I'm sure it's coming this year!)Coming Soon to Tim's Miniature Wargaming Blog:Something Eldar...Lots of distractions on the workbench... I've been
It's been a while but it's about time we had an unboxing review on Tale of Painters. We're going to try something different with this one. SpaceShrimp joins me today and we're going to have a chat to review this new game from Games Workshop after the jump.More after the jump
Another update on my Silver Skulls Team. Working on the final two models, still this takes longer than expected. Garfy slaps out these Primaris so quickly, makes me admire his Conquest run even more. Speaking of Garfy, doesn't the Sergeant with the sword look a little bit like Garf when he had a mohawk? Hmm, I might be on to something...
