Death World Forest


Fearless Foraging

4.868.018.M41Sergeant Hammer was released after only a few cycles in the medicae facility at the expansiveHaldivar Starport. He had required some serious bone refabrication and muscle stitching and rebuilding, but didn't require any organ regrowth. "Peachy" McGough and Loiselle were kept in quarantine and not allowed to return with him - as they had potentially been exposed to some unknown xenos parasites. It was Hammer's intention to muster the section and anyone else he could and much back out into the jungle to hunt down the vile Xenos that had killed "Doc" Sanders and grievously wounded himself and others. In a debriefing at the Squadron HQ he had leaned the creatures they encountered were the hated "Tyranids". It was imperative to gather as much intelligence as possible about the numbers and dispositions of the terrible xenos threat - to determine the extent of the infestation and where best to direct orbital bombardment. However, upon return to the Troop's Forward Operation Base, he found a si

Death World Forest Kill Zone - Shardwrack Spines

This isn't the very LAST of the Death World Forest terrain... but I'm almost done... I have two little bits left to do (I think they're called "Grapple Weed"..?).Shardwrack Spines from Games Workshop.I went with red for them partly to make them stand out from the Barbed Venomgoarse, but also to give them an alien, otherworldly look - and I figured how better to make things otherworldly than to paint them the opposite colour you'd expect them to be on the colour spectrum given that most terrestrial plants are green!Also in a Cthulhu Now adventure I ran ages ago, there were these plants that fed off carrion that had red stems that seemed utterly creepy...I thought of putting the Valhallans in here for a laugh... but then decided against it..Looking forward to actually PLAYING A GAME on this... hopefully this afternoon... or perhaps tomorrow...Definitely feeling like I have enough to play a game. Really, if I had much more I'd be hard to move the figures around in there without catching a sleeve on some terrain

Death World Forest Kill Zone - STILL More Barbed Venomgorse

Here it is, folks, the last of the Barbed Venomgorse (and Eldritch Ruins).Barbed Venomgorse (and Eldritch Ruins) from Games Workshop's Death World Forest Kill Zone for Kill Team.I'm not sure what happened with this one. perhaps I didn't assemble a couple as suggested and ended up with more of one particular foliage type and not enough of another...? so we have a hybrid variety of Barbed Venomgorse...?I should have put figures in all these pictures to give a greater sense of the scale of them.This one, technically, counts as "Eldtrich Ruins" (or something like that) which is effectively the same, but has additional bonus tactics that can be used to booth Psychic abilities.Guaiacan Commandoes - back in the jungle.I now have enough of this terrain I can mostly fill the board with terrain bits. I could add in a few other bits of other stuff and be able to play a game right now!I still have the Shardrack Spines and two other little bits to finish up from this set, then it will be complete.I should mention that the

Death World Forest Kill Zone - MORE Barbed Venomgorse

A bit more of the Death World Forest Kill Zone for you today - MORE Barbed Venomgorse! Though the foliage is different on these, they still count as the same in the game. I have three more of these to finish up - with yet another sort of foliage! They are nearly complete, I'll probably have them up tomorrow. Then it's on to the "Shardwrack Spines"! After those, there are just two other little bits and all of the Death World Forest Kill Zone will be complete! Can I get it all done before Rogue Trader is released on Saturday!? That would be pretty fantastic if I could!MORE Barbed Venomgorse from Games Workshop.Maybe it's just the lighting, but I didn't find these quite as lost in the background this morning when I was out taking pictures.Maybe there's a bit of glare coming off the board which is muting the busy print bit...?Some bog-standard Cadian troops in the Death World Forest.Inexperienced as they are in such environs, they're totally going to die in there... and it won't even be the enemy t

Death World Forest - Barbed Venomgorse

It's been a busy week with skewl and all the regular activities of fall starting up! We've been trying to cram a lot of games in for the Game-a-Day September challenge and lots of bike rides before the weather gets awful and last weekend we binge-watched all of Stranger Things Season One (I actually got all of the deathward forest terrain assembled while watching it - along with starting a few of the Drukhari Wyches). I did manage to find some time to paint a few of the pieces of terrain that came with the Death World Forest Kill Zone....Barbed Venomgorse (and Eldtrich Ruins) from Games Workshop's Death World Forest Kill Zone - on the Death World Forest Kill Zone board. If you're having trouble making out details of the pieces, you're not the only one. The Death World Forest Kill Zone board is very busy and I find it difficult to make out details myself - even in all the pictures of it in the booklets and on the internet taken by the professional photographers at GW!Also it was a bit dark this morning when I
