Well this is odd, I can't seem to find a post about my Dark Shroud that includes these pictures, or in fact the subsequent metallics. These were taken in December I must have been preoccupied and forgot to share them. Obviously this is just the Warplock Bronze basecoat.Which I would have followed with Balthasar gold and Retributor Armour and all the other bits to achieve my 'brassy bronze' which I failed to record. I think I did that around February/March, alongside the Predator and Razorback. Liam has returned from holiday but I still need to visit to pick up the Knight legs, then I can focus on the Imperial Knights. This delay has given me a few weeks to try and move the Dark Shroud past the metallics hurdle and onto the black highlights hurdle! Construction on the knights can be interspersed with my painting of this to make each more manageable.So here we are up-to-date, the metallics were then washed with my Valejo Sepia Wash which is a bit darker than Army Painter Soft Tone, I suppose it serves me right
Following on the heels of my previous Adeptus Titanicus post, I've managed to complete the second Warlord titan from my boxed set. This fella is in the colours of Legio Mortis. In 30/40K lore, Legio Mortis is one of the oldest titan legions in existence, renown for being insufferably haughty and elitist. With this being the case I thought I've give their classic baroque black-red-and-gold armour the high gloss treatment, with very little weathering. In my mind's eye I see these alpha-level god engines having flights of cherubim servitors flitting around, continually buffing and waxing the armour to a blinding sheen. :)Nonetheless, I still wanted to make sure the model conveyed that it was a brutal war machine. With this in mind I chopped up some extra bits from a Civitas terrain sprue to create the wreckage of a administratum building that's in the midst of being pounded into dust by the Warlord. Also, to help place the scene within some sort of scale, I placed a small group of tech-thralls and

Finally completed and based, the mid level ranger figure from Citadel's AD&D range circa 1985.Looks like the cloak might require an additional coat of varnish.Originally started in the VIII Analogue Painting Challenge and recently completed in the 30days30miniatures painting challenge.Some small horses and riders to follow shortly.Cheers for now
Back when I was first building my Genestealer Cult models I realised that I might need an Iconward. Although the model was greta and all I had a plan to kitbash one. I had a spare Rat Ogre from the Island of Blood [?] set. I'd used the other one for my Skaven Blood Bowl team but I figured this one with two Genestealer heads might look like some über Abberant [Übberant?] that could double as an Iconward. Well they only went and made an Übberant, sorry, Abominant. Now you can see though that might still be value in my kitbash [once I attempt it] as that Rat Ogre is almost 'Primaris' scale to the Abominant.Although I'm not about to mix my Astartes scales I'm quite happy to have a crack at doing this at some point, there'll be a scything talon arm underneath his bladed arm. Now I know things seem a bit random and hectic with all these things at the moment but what I need to do is prep a lot of stuff, get it based and primed ahead of the colder weather. Then I can focus on the Knights in a few weeks and when thing
The Space Wolves enter the fray! For unknown reasons the Wolves of Fenris have arrived on Fortis Binary and are hunting the Adeptus Mechanicus through the ruins!
Just finished a bunch of Orks, some nice pieces in there.
Double Trouble 4 and Alex From the Fang's doubles tournament replacing Blog Wars. 875pts with random pairings but all match-ups are Battle Brothers. Once again my recollection is pretty hazy so for the most part enjoy the pictures, the commentary will be secondary ;) My first Blog Wars was Blog Wars 6 in June 2013, in that time I don't think Alex and I have ever faced or paired with each other. We've been on adjoining tables but with this our last chance to dance Alex twisted the strands of fate to put us both on the same table - Knight on Knight! I'm paired with Tom Capper again [paired with for DT3 and opposite for Never Mind the Blog Wars] he had his Blood Angels, Mephiston, possibly Astorath some Assault Terminators and Sanguinary Guard. Alex had his two Helverins and a Knight Warden and was partnered with Jonathan Lyness [regular attendee both at Alex's events and my own Birthday Bash] he had Nurgle and Death Guard - a Damon Prince, big blob of cultists, 2 Bloat Drones, unit of Pl
Aside from Lord of the Rings, I don’t tend to write a lot about Games Workshop. That said, Games Workshop The post Shadespire: Showcase and First Impressions appeared first on Must Contain Minis.
In the September issue of White Dwarf Magazine, Games Workshop has included a free gift - Dark Elf Player Cards for Blitz Bowl: This is a great move by Games Workshop that will both encourage people to buy the Blitz Bowl game (available now at Barnes & Noble) while offering another reason for current owners to expand into another team.This release also provides hope that Blitz Bowl player cards for Nurgle will show up soon....
Double Trouble 4 and Alex From the Fang's doubles tournament replacing Blog Wars. 875pts with random pairings but all match-ups are Battle Brothers. Once again my recollection is pretty hazy so for the most part enjoy the pictures, the commentary will be secondary ;) Game 2 and I'm partnered with Matt Longmore again [I'd been paired with him at DT2 and he was my opponent in DT3]. He'd brought his Blood Angels with 'Captain Slam', some Veterans, Death Company, a squad of Helblasters and some other units [THSS Terminators] that would benefit from reserve deployment. We were up against Andy Peat and his Tyranids [5 Carnifex, Old One Eye, a Neurothrope and a Biovore] and Lucas Rooney and his Astra Miliarum [2 Leman Russ, 2 Basilisks, a small unit of Bulgryns, a 'Command Point Farm' and mortars. We managed to win first turn and not lose the initiative. Matt had kept all but a unit of Veterans in the ruins above my Lancer and the Helblasters on the top floor of the ruins at the top of the board. I dep
The last of the warband supplements for Warhammer Underworlds Season 1 Shadespire in a review will be the Farstriders. We had Magore's Fiends early this week. Similar as the Fiends picked up the Khorne theme from the starter kit, the Farstriders pick up with the Stormcast Eternals from the same set. The Farstriders are the […]
Double Trouble 4 and Alex From the Fang's doubles tournament replacing Blog Wars. 875pts with random pairings but all match-ups are Battle Brothers. Once again my recollection is pretty hazy so for the most part enjoy the pictures, the commentary will be secondary ;) Here we go with the last Double Trouble ever. I'll cover my feelings in the wrap up but suffice to say the event was it's usual fun, tinged with a hint of sadness as it has come to a fitting end. First game and I'm partnered with Matt Greenwood [Alex's regular opponent] and his Astra Militarum [3 Leman Russ with Pask, a Psyker, some Ratling Snipers and Vets but with no Command Point farm!].Facing us was Greg Barber, again with Astra Militarum [Baneblade, Command Point Farm, Psykers and a Bullgryn squad]. He was partnered with Duncan Gray and Khorne Daemonkin [Soul Grinder, Blood Letters, Flesh Hounds, Skull Cannon and some Forgeworld Greater Daemon].Setup was table ends but with the pointed ends 18" apart. That would hav

I managed to arrange a little game with Otty in preparation for Double Trouble 4. Never having solely used my Knights and with their new rules it was a perfect opportunity to familiarise myself with my 3 guys. The main issue with taking the Lancer is you automatically lose half your Stratagems as they invariably work with Questoris Knights, or those with specific weapons. Take away any other Knightly houses and I was left with just on page of Stratagems to choose from! I gave the Lancer Land Strider to add 2" to his move and the Warglaives too. He also had the Sainted Ion Armour for a 2+ save!Otty brought 2 Broods of Genestealers [one maxxed out], a Broodlord, a Neurothrope and 6 Hive Guard. Otty got first turn, moved the Neurothrope into the crater and the Hive Guard into range of the nearest Warglaive. The fired off two salvoes, taking it down to just 2 woundsBig Brood advanced, little brood conga'd to secure objectives. No combat this turn but the next turn?The Lancer advanced, [14" move +2" Land Strider +
