Along with Zarbag's Gitz the Eyes of the Nine were released late 2018. Introducing the followers of Tzeentch to the game. Therefore adding after two warbands devoted to Khorne and the undivided Godsworn Hunt, another part of the pantheon of chaos. The warband of the Eyes of the Nine is a supplement for Warhammer Underworlds […]
Finally I finished this soft plastic model, to serve as a standerby / objective in our games of Burrows and Badgers.Which we really should dive into, but that is going to be something for after the move I guess.The model, from a local supermarket chain 'farm animals' action last year, is a hinde who likes cooking and baking, but the models are 32mm in scale so make excellent additions for non-combatants on the tabletop.Painted in the three layer style I prefer, to add some strong contrasts on the models as they aren`t that deeply detailed (albeit, for soft plastics, they aren`t bad at all), this is like the first non-Lord of the Rings model I painted in months.Enjoy, and if you are Belgian, expect these sorts of soft figures to turn up for eurocents on fleamarkets this summer... I will definitly be on the lookout for them...
Chainsaws not only have a long-standing tradition at Blood Bowl, they are also a great excuse some conversions a try. Since I always wanted to field Ugroth Bolgrot once, but never liked the classic model, I built my own version. On the one hand, that had the advantage that I could use it, if I […]
I greet you warmly!I come back to the work of J.R.R. Tolkien in the form of orcs today! Yes, ladies and gentlemen, as Saruman used to say, "The Orc era has come!" The more important reason, however, was my shame. I've bought a group of Uruk-hai scouts, a good year ago, that would be nice to paint and join the forces of evil. I decided to make a mini project divided into 3 parts with orcs from Isengard under the name Amon Hen, which is the place of the Battle of the Followship of the Ring with the orc unit. The place of Boromir's death and kidnapping of the hobbits...To today's entry I have also added two elements of the wargaming terrain from Warhead Studio, which perfectly fit me to the ruins of the former watchtower of Gondor guarding the northern extremities of this land.I encourage you to take a look at this manufacturer's offer. It has many great elements of terrain and bases:https://warheadstudio.com/Warhead Studio FBAmon Hen. Part I. Uruk-hai.Uruk-ha
Zarbags Gitz were one of the first warbands released for Nightvault, late last year and with the recent release of the Gloomspitze Gitz it makes sense to take a closer look at them. The warband of Moonclan Grots (formerly known as Nightgoblins) is the largest of them available for Underworlds so far and after the […]
And as mentioned, a lot of the German tabletop community joined in this event, so you've seen some that you've met at other shows earlier this year. Rhein Main Tabletop brought their Battlefleet Gothic table with them, along with a set up for Aggro, a hooligan skirmish. The hosts themself showed among other tables, their […]
It has arrived, the second edition of the Mordheim like, skirmish variant of the The Lord of the Rings game, Battle Companies.Further building on the first edition (not counting the ancient White Dwarf ruleset), it has more warbands and scenarios then the previous book, being almost a third thicker as well.The book, after the Introduction, starts with the rules on mustering your warband, and the aftermath sequence that takes place once your game has ended.In this sequence, heroes and warriors can advance to get better stats and skills, and here the first change is clear. Now the Heroes, instead of rolling on a generic table, can follow a chosen Path, like that of a Warrior, a Knight or even a Sorcerer, as the differentiate the bands even further.Next we get the Armoury section, where all the special gear can be bought with the use of the Influence points (aka, the game currency) that your warband amasses, as well as Wanderers and Creatures that can be added to bolster your ranks.We then arrive at the la
As promised, I headed down into the "Palz" to Meckenheim, to visit the Ad Arma Convention 2019. New location, moved from the Sportshall in Speyer to the Gymnasium in Meckenheim. Parking was a bit of an issue, if you came a bit late, you had to park along side the road or on the otherside […]
..............and some Battlestar Galactica Starship Battles!Some 15mm civilians from Battle Valor, nice sculpts, perfect for fantasy and many other periods I believe.......Attempted some size comparison shots, Khurasan, Battle Valor, CP Models, Battle Valor and Croms Anvil......Met up with Daniel this week and while he was in Dublin with his girlfriend attending a concert he dropped in to Forbidden Planet and picked up Battlestar Galactica: Starship Battles starter box plus two extras fighters.Slightly similar to X-Wing but more emphasis on movement, speed, kinetic energy and altitude, there is just 2D6 for shooting and damage is pulled from a stack of tokens with random damage score, another separate stack for collisions, more complicated than X-Wing, no shields, no saving throws, there are cards giving extra maneuver skills, firepower etc......Took us a little while to get set up and ready but combat is brutal, game was over in 20mins, I destroyed one of my own craft by steering in to an asteroid
I painted a small unit of Castigators for my Stormcast army. These are the models that come in the Soul Wars set. It is a little frustrating that this is not a 'legal' size unit for pitched battle games. These are purchased in groups of three for pitched battles so you need one more or leave two at home. Oh well. This seems to be the way of building armies from the starter sets.These add a much needed ranged combat capability for my Stormcast army but in their first game I was not impressed. They are really designed to go against Nighthaunt armies (shocking) and are just marginally useful against others. I will pick up the easy build box at some point so I can feild either 2 units of three or one unit of six.The new Sacrosanct style Stormcast Eternal models are not my favorite. With the Soul Wars release and the appearance of the Sacrosanct models we now have Stormcast models with more robes such. What I like about the Stormcast models is the armor and now
In our Against the Shadow review, we take a look at a cooperative horror-fantasy game from Schwalb Entertainment. The post Against the Shadow Review (Kickstarter Preview) appeared first on Co-op Board Games.
Paired up with Mollog's Mob, the second warband that isn't part of a regular Age of Sigmar faction is introduced as a warband for Warhammer Underworlds: Nightvault - Godsworn Hunt. Godsworn Hunt belongs to the chaos pantheon, but unlike the Reavers or Magore's Fiends, not devoted solely to Khorne, but part of the Darkoath. The […]
I painted my first army specific Endless Spell for Age of Sigmar. This is the Everblaze Comet for the Stormcast Eternals. My friend, Randy, used one against me in a game last year and it was very effective. I knew it would be a must have for my army. I used it for the first time last weekend and it did well. I need to be very careful in how I use it as it is not a predatory spell so it cannot be moved.This model was super easy to build and paint. It only has three pieces including the cool molded base. I painted and flocked it in a couple of hours.
During Warhammer Fest Europe last year the new season of Underworlds Nightvault was announced, we were told that factions would be introduced to the game that haven't been released for Warhammer or Age of Sigmar. Thus bringing us the warbands of Mollog's Mob and Godsworn Hunt. Let's start with Mollog's Mob today. The warband was […]
More warriors of Minas Tirith entry the fray, as I have been painting to "fill out" the swordsmen trays in my cabinet.And to that end, these armoured soldiers received their colours.Armed with sword and shield, and wearing heavy armour, the warriors of Minas Tirith are good mainline troops for a human force in the game. Strong defence, versatile weapons (I will be painting up some spears next) choices, and not to expensive at all...So that is another tray filled out with these 7 brave warriors joining the collection, and the army now really reaching the 700 point goal to have at least one force ready to take to game events, even though it will be made up of core troops and minor characters instead of the highly competitive options, but I can build on them in peace and quiet as I go along now.Let's look at expanding their mounted contignent next, while preparing more spearmen as well for the army.
