The first vehicle to come with an issue of Warhammer 40,000: Conquest is the Myphitic Blight Hauler, it's also my first Daemon Engine joining the ranks of my Death Guard. After the jump, some more pics all around this monstrous parasite and some group shots.More after the jump
Espeno Locerno has hired mercenaries to escort him back into the Blackstone Fortress. In addition his petition to the Ministorum representatives for aid has unleashed the fury of Pious Vorne!
...or some sort of generic 40K Imperial Guard...I finished off the last of the old-school metal radians I have this week. Well... ALMOST all of them... there is still a standard bearer who is going to need some extra work and an artillery officer... But in terms of the sharp-end infantry grunts... well, THEY are all finished!!The new (and yet, not-so-new) guys.These are all older metal Cadians from Games Workshop. I picked them up off eBay not so long ago - along with a few of the others I've already painted. A couple I picked up from my friend Paul when he was offloading them a few years ago. Some of the others, however, are some of the oldest GW figures I own - the "Rogue Trader Era" ones. I striped and repainted them in the last few years to use as "veterans".The Entire Force!(I'm not going to say "so far" because I really have no desire to add any more to this. I already have THREE OTHER Imperial guard forces - Tallarn, Guaiacan/Catachan, and Valhallan - I really don't need a fourth! Of course, I probably
Issue 9 complete. I'm really enjoying painting Pox Walkers now, which is good because there are loads more still to come with future Conquest issues. After the jump you'll see a picture of all the Pox Walkers I've painted so far as well as a group shot of all my Death Guard models. It's quite a sight!More after the jump
Hi, all! Here is my rendition of the awesome Elucia Vhane from Kill Team Rogue Trader. As I am not a gamer I don't feel the need to paint the whole box set, but I want to paint some of the models, like Elucia. So who else is into the Kill Team stuff and what do you think? Leave a comment or reaction below…
Kill Team Dartanian must hold the line against Laughing Ja’q’s Harlequin Troop as the legendary fighter attempts to slip through Imperial lines!
Quick update today on my second batch of six Pox Walkers. This batch was so much faster to paint than the first batch. Does anyone else find that? You kinda get into a groove and flow? Come back soon when I share more progress on my models from Death Guard. Garfy's Get a Grips available to order with same day dispatch here or here for non UK buyers.
If you haven’t caught our review of Warhammer Question: Blackstone Fortress, you may wish to give it a read. The game offers a hefty and impressive number of gameplay mechanics and systems to keep the game fun and engaging. However, one of the issues of these more robust games is that sometimes you can all-too-easily forget some of the rules. In my first few games of Blackstone Fortress, this was certainly the case. Thankfully, I’m here to give you a head-start so that your first few games run as smoothly as your later sessions when you’re more accustomed to the game. In order to get the most of your sessions you want to adhere to each of the rules of Blackstone Fortress. This will provide you with the best experience as intended by the designers. Below are some of the rules I found myself slipping-up on which either made the game noticeably easier or irksomely difficult. With three booklets of rules to flick through, let us help you remember some of the ones that may be more likely to slip
A few things rolling off the workbench this weekend...First, the Wall of Martyrs Bunker that came with the Wall of Martyrs Kill Zone. I still have a second section of trench and then a few more pieces that make up an "imperial defence emplacement" - all the sections are modular and can be mixed and matched with the trench bits...It seems like this bunker should be able to match up with the trench line - with the side doors, but the ends of the trenches and emplacement bits have slots and table to fit together - and the bunker lacks a slot for the trench/emplacement tab to fit into... I guess I could carve one into it...I also finally got started on some of the Rogue Trader miniatures - I am determined to paint these and play all the scenarios before jumping into Warhammer Quest: Blackstone Fortress (which I and VERY excited about!!)! I've kind of started by cherry-picking some of the low-hanging fruit... there is SO MUCH DETAIL on all these Rogue Trader minis...The Eyestiner Swarm for the Gellerpox Infec
In September 2017, Games Workshop released a series of 12 + 1 Space Marine Heroes, randomly packaged in sealed blind boxes, exclusive to the Japanese hobby market. All models feature unique dynamic poses, sculpted bases, and a bare-headed and helmeted head option. The series is already sold out in Japanese online stores, however, in November 2018, Games Workshop released Series 1 in the rest of the world - with a few revisions. Check out if the models are worth the hassle.More after the jump
Oh man, this model is so cool. It took me by total surprise by how much I actually enjoyed painting this model. After the jump there are more angles and a pretty interesting comparison shot.More after the jump
Friday afternoon I dropped the kids off at a friends place for the afternoon. I thought rather than ride all the way home and ride ride back to pick them up, I could arrange to get in a few games at the Dragon's Den - which isn't very far from their friends place. I put out a request on the Hunters of the Warp group on Facebook and a Friendly fellow named Mark offered to play a few games with me.As Mark was planning to bring Adeptus Mechanicus I brought along my Genestealer and Chaos Kill Teams - along with a couple options for Kill Zones.GAME ONEThe First scenario we played was Take Prisoners in a Sector Mechanicus Kill Zone.It seemed an appropriate place to start - as he was playing Ad Mech. The Take Prisoners scenario was interesting and kind of made sense. A Tyrnaid bio-pod crashed on a Forge World and genestealers were sent out to bring back samples of the locals for breakdown and study of their biological components. The Adeptus Mechanicus, for their part, having noticed the landing on their aspen would
I wouldn’t say it’s entirely preposterous to propose that a sci-fi setting can sometimes be far more complex than a fantasy setting. Technology can impact worlds in ways unfathomable. For Blackstone Fortress, this is no exception. Warhammer Quest ventures into Warhammer 40,000 for the first time and tries to bring cooperative dungeon-crawling into the grimdark universe. It swaps swords and crossbows for boltguns and vindictor flamers. How does Warhammer Quest translate across? Does it work well? Or should Warhammer Quest stay firmly planted in a fantastical realm? As mentioned previously, I thoroughly enjoyed the previous romps within Warhammer Quest. Silver Tower and Shadows over Hammerhal gave me and my fellow adventurers hours upon hours of fun ending in raucous victory or sorrowful failure. These games, especially Silver Tower, were surprisingly simple and easy to get into after the first few turns. Venturing through chambers with your fellow heroes slaying monsters and solving puzzles provid
It’s time for another Let’s Play! Today we check out the new 1-5 player Cooperative Tabletop RPG set in the Warhammer 40000 Universe – Warhammer Quest: Blackstone Fortress. Watch the review of the new models and profiles HERE:
I found a few hours to finish the Plague Champion from Dark Imperium to add to my six Conquest Plague Marines. That finishes this unit off nicely. After the jump, check out more angles of the Plague Champion.More after the jump
