Hey Tale of Painters, good to be back. This time I’m sharing some of my T’au Kill Team and I’ve got some sweet Games Workshop style 360°spins! More after the jump!More after the jump
Here he is, Brother-Prognosticator Krystofer of the Silver Skulls 3rd Company, commander of my Silver Skulls Kill Team and also my avatar on the battlefield. Check out more pictures after the jump, including a cool action shot of my Kill Team with some scenery.More after the jump
The Deathwatch muster to take on the Aeldari in another Adepticon Competitive play pack scenario as I’m joined by Owen from Gaming with the Cooler.
Update on my Primaris Librarian in Phobos Armour painted as a Commander for my Silver Skulls Kill Team. For those who remember my last post, I wasn't sure about the bright bone robes so I changed the camo cloak to a dark grey camouflage pattern like on the studio version. I think it was the right choice, as it makes the blue metallic armour really pop and fits the sombre appearance of my Silver Skulls models. I wanted a similar abstract pattern like on the studio version, with colours matching my Sector Mechanicus terrain. I just started blocking in some shapes until I achieved an aesthetically pleasing distribution. Painting camouflage on miniatures is always challenging. You want a convincing yet eye-pleasing effect that doesn't break up shapes like real camouflage. What do you think?
It’s time for another Let’s Play! This time we’re taking a look at the 2019 edition of the Warhammer 40000: Kill Team 2 Player Starter Set, featuring the Astartes and T’au single player starter sets from last year combined with some Sector Mechanicus terrain and all the cards to go with it.
I’m back with Owen from Gaming with the Cooler to throw down my Death Guard against his new Aeldari warband!
I picked up a Genestealer Cult Magos miniature to paint for Finnegan to use in his Genestealer Cult Kill Team/Necromunda gang. I used contrast paints for everything except the metals (but I washed those with contrast painted!). It was FAST - honestly I spent more time waiting for layers to dry than actual painting. It isn't the most beautiful painted figure I've ever done, but it's done and it matches the rest of his Genestealer Cult minis... Genestealer Cult MagosThe Genestealer Cult so far...Now to get this gang on the table!!Coming Soon to Tim's Miniature Wargaming Blog:Spyrers. I finished them up. I'll probably post pics later today...
Welcome to another Let’s Talk! Today I’m joined by Chase Strolenberg from the Learned from Gaming Podcast (https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/learned-from-gaming-podcast/id1266704678) to talk about the latest trend in small-scale Tabletop Wargames that you can set up and play at home in a space no bigger than your Kitchen Table.

These are actually Finnegan's figures. He's picked up a few Genestealter Cult minis over the last year. He started with the Deathwatch: Overkill boardgame/box set, which he picked up at the Sentry Box in Calgary. Later, when the new Kill Team game came out, I gave him the Genestealer Cult Kill Team from the core box I'd picked up. He's done nothing with them since.Recently, I convinced him to assemble a few and I thought I'd experiment with the new Contrast® Paints on a few. Once I figured out a quick way to do them I sat down and we tried to bang out a squad of them one afternoon. They've been sitting the last few weeks, languishing in a state of ever-so-nearly-completed. So, this afternoon, I decided to just finish them off for him. They only needed a few touch-ups - a few spots that were missed and a couple things that needed metallic paint...Genestealer Kult Gang/Kill Team from Games Workshop/Citadel Miniatures.I have no idea how many points these are or if it is enough to make use of as either a Kil
Hey guys, it's been a bit quiet from me "thanks" to a combination of hot weather, outdoor activities and a slight lack of hobby time. But I'm chugging along with my Dark Elves team for our #taleoftuesdays project and also started working on this Vanguard Librarian (or Prognosticar as they are called within the Silver Skulls chapter) to bolster up my Silver Skulls Kill Team with an HQ choice. Silver Skulls wear dark metallic silver armour, so I thought it would be cool and a bit novel to paint the Librarian's armour with a metallic blue as well. It's a basecoat of Vallejo Mecha Colour Metallic Blue (the metal paints of this range are fantastic, they are acrylic based, super smooth, boast great coverage and work with both brush and airbrush), an all-over wash of 2:1 Nuln Oil Gloss and Drakenhof Nightshade plus a gentle drybrush of Metallic Blue and a bit of Vallejo Mecha Color Light Steel [Stormhost Silver].I thought of painting his coat in a classic bone/linen colour instead of camouflage, but I'm not complete
Owen from Gaming with the Cooler and I run through the event pack from Adepticon 2019, starting with Vital Supplies as my Genestealer Cult takes on his Grey Knights!
No... Not for Necromnda...That's still coming...I'm still playing around with these contrast paints - trying to figure out what works with what and what's the best way to get a thing done... I think I've figured out how to do the Kroot. Finnegan assembled the rest of them Sunday, we'll spray them later today, and I figure they'll be done by tomorrow! Or maybe Wednesday...?Also think I've figured out a system for Keira's Eldar Guardians... of course I'm going through them so quickly, I'll probably have them all DONE by the time I figure out the most efficient way to do them!?So... TermagantsI picked these up last fall around the time I picked up the Genestealer Kill Team Box. They were super cheap - 5 for $12 CAD. Don't get much cheaper than that! Unfortunately I later realized they are almost completely useless without a Synapse creature on the team - like a Tyranid Warrior!?I guess if I wanted to make this a serious Kill Team I'd go GET that Tyranid Warrior box for $60 and have THREE of them in the team... b
Well now that the Drukhari are painted (well... enough to play with) and Strange Bedfellows is out of the way it’s time to start re-assessing and figuring out what I’m going to do for the next few months – or even the rest of the year…? And Beyond?!)NECROMUNDANecromunda has captured my imagination for the time being, and I have gone ALL IN! In addition to picking up all the cure rulebooks at my FLGS, I went back and bought the base box game – for all the cards and tokens and terrain bits and boards… and I know Keira would want the Esher gang… and the Goliaths… well… they’ll get used for SOMETHING!?I also scoured eBay for a number of items I needed to for special characters and stuff to finish up a few gangs of my own.To kick things off I thought I’d start a small summer campaign. Seven weeks as per the suggested length for a Dominion Campaign. Try and find a half-dozen friends to play. Probably start that around 13 July and end on 31 August. This will be to try out the system with a manageable number of reaso

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.
