Let's hope that Kill Team doesn't forget that it's supposed to be welcoming. It should act as an open door into the hobby for new players and not an overtly-intricate and daunting cast iron gate. [...] The post Kill Team Updates Killing Time – One Year On appeared first on Tabletop Games UK.
Bound to one day receive the charge of my Rohirrim, it's Morannon orcs this time.While last time's basic Mordor orc is only good for average task, the slightly better Morannon orc was the one present at Pelennor Fields.For this entry, I completed a batch of 13 of the warriors, mix and matching their wargear. Once I paint up the movement trays for them (not that you need them in the game, but it looks so much better to line them up in your game cabinets) I will be "filling out" their numbers in multiples of eight.The models now are relatively cheap to find everywhere, as they are in the current starter edition of the game, as are their Mordor orc companions due to the fact of, well, these guys just being better to build your battleline around. It's not that there is much difference between them, but the differences are mostly "where they count" for an army that relies on numbers bound to be cut down by the swathes...But for this bunch, I now have a core of 4 with shield, 6 with spear and 3 with shi
Finishing off my Shadowspear Marines, I throw down a Matched Play game with my Sons of Russ against Owen’s Heretic Astartes!
A small batch of figures this time round, as I painted my first 4 Numenorean warriors up.Hailing from way back in the first edition of the box, anno 2001, these Warriors of the Last Alliance formed the ranks together with the Elves of Rivendell.The models are as such the part of a single sprue, but they do serve a dual purpose until I get round to painting up a complete army of them of about 400 points, with Isildur and Elendil as well in the future to lead them.Now they not only mark off a square on my bingo card, as a new force that has been started, but they also complete the Last Alliance battle company now.May is turning out to be a very decent painting month for sure!
Let's head into the last week of our Warhammer Underworlds Nightvault coverage with the two latest warbands, Yltharis Guardians and Thundrik’s Profiteers. Where as we're starting today with the Sylvaneth boxed set. This warband supplement for Warhammer Underworlds (Nightvault) costs 22.50 EUR and covers 4 Tree-Revenants. It is available without the cards as an Easy-to-Build […]
This is becoming somewhat of a saga now. I've got all the stains to do and the shading but staining all these rivets is incredibly tedious and despite it solving my issues with the verdigris my motivation is through the floor - I think I need to do a separate 'where's my head @' post to get that all off my chest/mindBut I persevered and used my Vallejo Sepia wash and as you can see on the left, where I thinned it the wash split exactly like Seraphim Sepia. However, I was washing it again with black so I was not disheartened, in fact the result is great.I did a fair few panels before I stopped thinning it with water, it's a bit harder to work it into the crevices without but I eventually learned my lesson.There are a lot of rivets and areas that needed shading.But the sepia followed by Army Painter Dark Tone managed to bring it all back down to an acceptable level.The big ruin was a daunting prospect though and it took a fair bit of motivation to tackle all those rivets.Question: do I paint the scrolls either

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 […]
Derek returns with his Sylvaneth to take on my Nighthaunts in Battle of the Pass!
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 […]
Yoyo,Ive got some finished pics of my Warlord Titan, Nuntio Dolores, based off the featured titan in the Black Library Novel, Titandeath, released earlier this year. I actually finished it a couple of months ago but I forgot to upload photographs here.. I've also just put the finishing touches on a Questoris Knight banner from House Makabius (Same as my 28mm house) to join the big fella.Pics:Princeps Majoris Terent Harrtek - Nuntio Dolores [Legio Vulpa Maniple 7]Princeps Majoris Terent Harrtek - Nuntio Dolores [Legio Vulpa Maniple 7]Princeps Majoris Terent Harrtek - Nuntio Dolores [Legio Vulpa Maniple 7]Princeps Majoris Terent Harrtek - Nuntio Dolores [Legio Vulpa Maniple 7]Princeps Majoris Terent Harrtek - Nuntio Dolores [Legio Vulpa Maniple 7]Princeps Majoris Terent Harrtek - Nuntio Dolores [Legio Vulpa Maniple 7]Legio Vulpa Warlord Titan - Nuntio Dolores with a House Makabius - Questoris Knight Support BannerHouse Makabius - Questoris Knight Support BannerHouse Makabius - Questoris Knight Support BannerThe
One thing about Battle Companies that makes it such a great tool, is that it can serve perfectly to start a couple armies for the "regular" game of MESBG.In this follow up article to yesterday's review of the rulesbook, I'm taking a look at the forces in the book, and what I would need to complete them all.I wanted to do this article actually with the previous edition, but didn't get round to it before they announced a second edition would be on the way, so to that end I'm going now over all the lists published in the book, and see what I would need to field the starting forces in the game.If I already completed a starter force, it will of course just be listed as "completed", but if not, it will state a list with either what I still need to Buy (B), and what I already possess but still need to finish (or start) painting (P). And the completed bands will be marked in italics to show some 'closure' on them...So without further ado, let's run over all the army lists from the book as such...Good Battle Com
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 […]
Following on from March's Battle of the Brush [or 'Tale of our Warlords', as it's also known], April's category is Squads. I entered Garrek's Reavers, and also Steelhearts Champions, so I could make up for my missing January entry. My goal is just to achieve the 12 entries over the course of the year and as you can see the standard is exceptional each month so the competitive aspect will be tough, hence why I'm just along for the ride. The top 3 are in order - Idoneth Deepkin justifiably taking this month's honours.Tidy Necrons coming second, with their red glowy eyes and Scarabs.Khorne Chaos warband was 3rd.These Sylvaneth were awesome yet again. If I was doing Age of Sigmar I'd go Sylvaneth [having previously thought it'd be Flesh Eater Court].Ad MechHouse DelaqueSpace Hulk GenestealersGrotsSquigs...and more Squigs.Very bright Wraithguard.Some old skool cool Dwarves.Witch ElvesStormcast dudes in bronze.And Hive Guard.And on the way back I managed to get a nice snap of NOT the Lady of Winterfell!Large miniat
