Undead - Markus Vellen & Gert the Hood

Tonight my final two recruits for my undead Warcry warband join the ranks. Markus Vellen, wight, and Gert the Hood, lowly skeletal spearman. Markus is another of Gary Morley's legendary wights, while Gert is yet another Bob Olley, though not one you see about too much.Look at that helmet. Pure metal.I used the same technique on Markus that I used previously on Einar Haugen. Again, contrast paint made painting the black armour a breeze. I spent more time on his cloak than on his entire suit of plate. The green-tinted axe and red cloak give him a little more jazz, and there's a purple pouch in there too someplace.I used the ever handy Typhus Corrosion on the hem of the cloak to weather it a little. There's a wee spider on the base too, if you can make it out. Gert is a simpler fellow, though he did get a spider too. As with all things Olley, his ragged hood and tunic led me down many a merry path. I found myself painting bone as cloth twice. Never underestimate a Bob. With these two complete, I now ha

Journey of the Maulers: A legendary pun

For quite some time I wasn't sure whether I should repaint this gentleman or not. This thrower was the first conversion for the Maulers and also the test mini for the colour scheme. I remember sacrificing the figure of a classic savage orc shaman on boar to get the hand that points away from him […]

40k for the people – WH40k Kill Team review / 2019

40k for the people It’s hard to pinpoint the most popular figure game in the world, but the legendary Warhammer 40,000 will be placed on the podium in each ranking. This system draws its strength from the grim, heroic universe and from models that almost anyone can fall in love with. The world created by GW has grown dozens of spin-offs for years. We have a board games, card games, computer and mobile games, books, comics … Soon there will be a tv series and another film (after the not very successful “Ultramarines”). A matter of time is the appearance of breakfast cereals with Aquilla… Something that hinders the development of popularity of “40k” is the game itself. As a miniature wargame, it puts quite a barrier at the entrance for the new players. The models are beautiful however preparing a full army to play is a demanding task. It is not only about the price, but also the amount of work that a newcomer will have to put into preparing and painting an army of mode

Morannon expansion

The next batch of Mordor troops have been finished, as my ranks keep swelling fo the dark lord Sauron.And this time, it's in the form of more Morannon orcs from the Pelennor boxed set.The total amount of "upgraded" Orc warriors this time are 18 of the warriors, armed in a variety of ways.  The batch consists of 13 hand weapon and shield, 3 spear and shield and 2 with just basic spears, these add some serious rank and file numbers to the budding force.  Not to mention a nice boost of 147 points to the tally.What's more, they have been 'in progress' on the to do pile for over a year, as they came in the starter box, so they'll be a mark off for my Bingo as well...Now to really start painting up some characters to lead all my rabble on the field of battle...

Mordor Shaman

With the second tournament I want to participate in right around the corner, I needed some more 'generic' heroes for my Mordor force to participate.This due to the fact I painted up 700 points of playable forces this year and then some rank and file, but lacked characters to play the larger, 900 points the tournament would be in format.So to that end, I painted up some more magical support in the form of this shaman, a Minor hero in the list that comes with some good support casting to the Ringwraith I brought along in the force.I followed a colourscheme mix up of how I paint on the one hand my regular orcs, and on the other my Morannon's, to make him blend in in the force, while on the other hand still singling him out as a character.So that's another small addition in itself, but one that makes the whole force playable...Now it will all depend on one factor: the delivery date of the new kitchen...
