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
Ciaran’s Genestealer Cult takes on my Death Guard in this 2k Matched Play game!
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.
Ily’Haeth Khai: The blade that seeks out weakness – this Asuryani Kill Team from Craftworld Iybraesil was assembled to exploit the enemy’s every error. They follow the directions of by Farseer Ishtá Hanndroth's scrying without hesitation. Once upon the battlefield, all emotions are suppressed and only the dictates of purest logic will be followed. Their deeds may seem strange at times, but they all serve a greater end: Unbeknownst to any but the Asuryani, a new warp rift will soon open. Ancient technologies can prevent the weakening of reality from becoming a new rent, but only if deployed in the right place at the right time.
Recently the husband and wife team at Gamecows contacted me to ask that I link their new beginners guide to Kill Team on my site. I didn’t like that my answer was that I don’t play any GW games or update my blog so I changed it. I’m going to link their article. I’m sure they worked hard at it and I remember how hard I worked to promote this blog. What little juice this site has left I hope it helps them. And who knows, maybe the very act of posting here again will make me re-think abandoning this blog. Warhammer 40k Kill Team Beginner Guide: Build a Viable Kill Team for Under $50 The post Interested in Kill Team appeared first on The General's Tent.
As I sit here by a pool with a Gin and Tonic, I have plenty of time to read and ponder what is next on the huge wargaming backlog. As we have been enjoying Warhammer 40K again and bought into Kill Team, I have been sorting through old models to see what can be used in Kill Team. The Tyranids were an easy Kill Team to muster, they did not take much work to get on the table, only needing a handful of models really helps. To give myself plenty of options, I updated a number of models so I can try out a proper swarm team at some stage. As I mentioned in an earlier post, I just rebased them and splashed on some ink. I can now field lots to Termagants or a horde of Hormagaunts with a single Tyranid Warrior to keep them in check. Or I can try the nine Genestealer team… So now I have more than enough Tyranids for Kill Team, I am wondering how long it would take to update all of my old models an make a small 40K sized army. These are all the updated models, but there are a few more boxes that I would nee
Yesterday Tim and I got together for a game of Kill Team. This was my 5th game since we decided to try the game out earlier this year. This would be our first game using our own custom Kill Teams rather than the pre-generated teams from the starter set or the Rouge Trader set. Tim used is Deathwatch kill team and I took my trusty Orks.For this game we selected the Terror Tactics scenario. The setting is a ruined sector frontieris settlement that has been taken over by an Ork Mekboy for his workshop. The the goal of the battle is to do as much damage to the enemy as possible. The first kill team to break is the looser. For this game we actually forgot to use any of the sector special rules.Deployment is complete. For the Scouting Phase the Orks select Take Forward Positions and and the Deathwatch selected Eliminate Sentries. Ork gunners move up to take better firing positions.Deathwatch marines target the advancing Orks. They score a single flesh wound
This past Saturday, we were supposed to be playing Wrath & Glory, but as with the last 3-4 sessions, half the players bailed and we ended up cancelling. One of the players, Jacob, was free though, so he came over and we played some Kill Team!As I knew he was bringing an Astra Militarum Kill Team - all Tempestus Scions - I dug out my Heretic Astartes Kill Team to face the Hammer of the Emperor.We played the "Stow Away" scenario out of the Sector Munitorum Kill Zone box. Basically the Chaos Cultists, backed up by a couple of Chaos Space Marines, were trying to secret themselves among some shipping containers that were to be taken off-world in an attempt to infiltrate the fleet in orbit. Unfortunately there were some Tempestus Scions on sentry duty around the Munitorum warehouses.The scenario was pretty straight forward - I had a small deployment zone entered on one of the short edges. The Scions could set up sentries anywhere that wasn't in or within 5" of my deployment zone - and they could not move on the
Hello and welcome to Inso's World again.It's been a fairly interesting couple of weeks, since I last posted, but mostly unrelated to hobby things.I have donated blood, worked a lot, got poorly, had a week off (holiday at home), travelled around Cornwall on my motorbike, got depressed and was very glad to be out of my own company and back at work again. I also counted charity money, did the annual accounts (for our committee) and even had a time where I sat and watched TV.My wife and I managed to see Captain Marvel at the local cinema and enjoyed it. I thought it was a bit 'impersonal' and I felt that I couldn't connect with the main character very well. Hopefully, that will change in the upcoming Avengers 'Endgame' film.Hobby wise, I have started things but not got very far with them. I managed to finish the two Big Squats though...Click the Pix!They have now been primed and are ready to be painted along with the other three that need paint. In addition to the two above, I have started three more. They are eq
