Rampart – Modular Terrain Set / Kickstarter

Hello! Quite recently we had the opportunity to work together with Archon Studio on their new line of modular terrains, which just today hit the Kickstarter. Link to the campaign can be found HERE. The campaign is going like a storm and is slowly approaching $50,000 – you have a chance to support the project until 18.12.2019! We have painted three different sets – Eternal Cathedral, Kazumi Temple and the newest Cobal Factory. Each of them has its own, unique atmosphere (gothic cathedral, exotic temple and industrial, 40k factory) and allows you to create unique structures for the battle table. Modularity is one of the biggest advantages of the Rampart series – it requires creativity from the builder, but it rewards him with the possibility of almost any combination of parts. A few of our comments: The models are made of good quality plastic. The details are sharp and all the elements are really solid. Assembling takes a lot of time, mainly due to the number of parts in each set. Almost all

Return Of The Tyranids

After many years in The Loft Full Of Lead, the Tyranids returned to the table for a game of 8th Edition. As this is an army of mostly models from the last century (!), it was mostly Troop choices with only a few HQ and one Screamer-Killer. There were plenty of Genestealers, mostly the original plastic Space Hulk models, but a few lead ones thrown in for good measure. Thirty Termagants were the speed bump and rather amazingly, lots survived until the end of the game. Tyranids sure are fast, it did not taike long to get into melee and start to do some damage. The game took a while to play as there were 80+ Tyranid models and they take a while to move each turn. It did not help that I had to keep reading the rules in a vain attempt to remember all of their special abilities and buffs. It was good fun to bring out some old models again, I am glad I did not get rid of them years ago.

El Akarm Market Massacre

Just outside the Snake Den lies the El Akarm Market. Close enough to the Den itself, it is considered Delaque territory - under their control - and protection.After the One-Eyed Red Snakes brazen attack on the Cawdor gangers of Durango Pipe, their leader, Willem Campbell, declared that violence would be met in kind - but rather than an attack directly on the Snakes, they would terrorize those they claimed dominion over - show those under their "protection" that House Delaque truly is incapable of offering them any REAL protection... Impotent to save them from the cleansing flame of the Cult of Redemption.... Sunday evening my friend Brent stopped by to try out a game of Necromunda.I thought I'd try out another new scenario from the Book of Ruin. the scenario is called called "Meat Harvest" and the idea is that one gang (presumably the Corpse Grinder Cult) is out to collect some fresh vittles if the form of dead peoples. I figured the scenario could easily be re-skinned to be a scenario where one side is

The Dreaded Ambull Hulk

So I FINALLY got some of my Blackstone Fortress stuff done! Did I get some of the Heroes done? Nope. Did I get some of the generic baddies for beginner/basic encounters done? Nope. Infact, I painted three of the miniatures that are the LEAST USEFUL miniatures I need to get painted right now?! The Dreaded Ambull Hulk and it's two and Borewyrm infestations...The Dreaded Ambull Hulk and it's two and Borewyrm infestations...I ended up painting these because I was looking at pictures of it and decided "I could paint that with contrast paints and it would take next to no time at all..." And so I did... and it didn't take all that much time...I probably spent more time trying to do something with the bases - which I'm not TOTALLY happy with... but at this point, I just have to say "good enough" and move the fuck on!Probably should have added skulls to the Boreworm Infestation bases as well... just of a bit more contrast...The Ambuls and Boreworms with their 'friends' the Ur-Ghuls... the only other Blacksto

The Bronze Gates Redux

Just a quick note to point out I have created a PAGE for the Bronze Gates Campaign. It is listed under PAGES over on the left of the screen there. Or you can follow this link:The Bronze Gates CampaignThe page has some background for the campaign and a listing of all the territories in the Bronze Gates and who currently controls them. It also has pictures of the gangs and Dramatis Personae as well as links to all the game reports of skirmishes that took place in the Bronze Gates.The Bronze Gates Campaign started out as a Necomunda Dominion campaign I was running for my family to try out the system. As interest in it petered out, I decided to keep using it as a setting for a narrative campaign. My own little slice of the Hive Primus Underhive.I am no longer keeping track of credits - to hire gangers and buy equipment. The campaign "system" is run more like a Kill Team campaign - gangers are added to the roster, as required, and with whatever equipment seems reasonable. The credit value of each ganger is tracked

Warhammer

On the 8th of October, coming out of our tax advisor's office, two weeks after my mother’s death, I noticed that the shop which used to be called GAMES WORKSHOP was now called WARHAMMER. I was curious, walked over to take a closer look, found out that the shop was closed and studied the painted miniatures behind the window.A young man came over, holding a little box in his hands."Damn. It’s closed", he said."Yes", I said. "Strange.""I was looking for somebody to play 40K with", he said."What army do you play?""Space Marines. Salamanders.""Those are the Space Marines that live in the jungle?"„In the jungle? I don’t know. They are all equipped with flame throwers. I have them here in my box.“"I sometimes play 40K with a friend. He used to live in Berlin, but unfortunately he moved to Dortmund recently. Are the rules very important to you? We play the 5th edition. It was written by Alessio Cavatore. It’s my favourite.""The new edition is very beginner-friendly. I like that.""If you would like to play with us, pl

Void Ships of the 41st Millennium

I totally thought Games Workshop was going to drop a new version of Battlefleet Gothic this year. I mean, in the last few years they've rereleased Necromunda and Blood Bowl and Adeptus Titanicus and some other fabulous new games... So I thought it was only a matter of time... But it didn't happen this year. I'm kind of glad. If it was anything like the new Adeptus Titanicus, it'd probably be a GAINT $400CAD boxed set with, like, two Imperial cruisers and two Chaos cruisers and a handful of escorts for each in a TOTALLY DIFFERENT SCALE from the previous editions...And it would have BROKE me...I've gone more than a little overboard in the last year or so with the 40K stuff and,  more recently, all the Necromunda stuff...But still... I WOULD love to be able to play some space actions - whether as part of a 40K/Apocalypse campaign or to play out any action that came up in a Wrath & Glory campaign - whether the characters are working for a Rogue Trader or and Inquisitor, there are definitely opportunities

Retribution!

Yesterday evening Jacob swung by to have a go at Necromunda. We've played a bit of Kill Team, but he hadn't tried out Necromunda yet...After last week's fiasco, the One-Eyed Red Snakes were DESPERATE to exact some retribution (and claw back a shred of reputation) so they planned to strike out at the New Cawdor Gang in Town.I decided to try out one of the scenarios in the brand new Book of Ruin. Hit and Run seemed apropos.  The defender got d3+7 Random crew and the attacker got d3+7 Custom crew. Jacob - who played the Cawdor gang decided to defend and started with nine crew. The attacking Delaque gangers had eight crew to start - and I went heavy with Champions and Gangers - all the Juve stayed home!The defenders started within 6" of the centre of the battlefield. Attackers set up anywhere that wasn't within 6" of a defender. There was a special rule that, after deployment, if any defenders could draw line of sight to any attackers they could make a roll to spot them (Int check - with modifiers based on d

Mecha Monday: Ork Mechs!

By Aaron Harris :Despite very limited hobby time lately, I was able to make progress on my Ork force, and the stompa, "Hatchet Face," joins the mob. While intended for use with Adeptus Titanicus, I made them scale neutral so they will pull double duty with a 15mm ork army I am planning. This takes the mob to 3 stompas and 1 gargant. All are scratch built by me using toilet paper tubes, foam core, matte board, toothpicks, wooden dowels, poster board, and whatever else I can get my hands on. The two boilers on the back of this stompa started as some wooden barrels from local hobby store.

Durango Pipe Moors - a House Cawdor Gang

I recently finished up three more Cawdor Gangers and rebased the rest of them, so I thought it time to do and updated post about the whole gang...It was only a matter of time before Cawdor and the Cult of Redemption showed it's face in the Bronze Gates. A gang has taken up residence in Durango Pipe and are calling themselves the "Moors"The Durango Pipe Moors.Willem Campbell - LeaderMesh Armour, Hand Flamer, Chainsword, Bolt GunSkills: Commanding Presence, Rain of Blows290 credits.The leader of the gang; Willem Campbell - a dour firebrand who leads from the front!The Cult of Redemption, Willem is certain, are chosen of The Emperor who fight the forces of Darkness and Chaos in a decisive struggle for the future of mankind. In saving the Bronze Gates from Corruption, Willem hopes to save their pious virtues as well, and make the Underhive an “Oasis of Puritanism”—chaste, austere, free from the taint of Mutants, Psykers, and Heretics.

Showcase: Ultramarines Land Raider Crusader

Finally, the beast has been conquered. Here is my Land Raider Crusader for my classic non-Primaris Ultramarines collection. This model has been sitting in my pile of shame for years, as far as I remember I bought the model around 5th Edition before of one of GW infamous price rises, when RRP was around 45 Euro (nowadays it's 60 Euro for such an old kit, lol). It's a big, old, ill-fitting kit, and yet it looks freaking impressive bristled with all its guns pointed at you. More pictures after the jump.More after the jump
