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
In the category of "Other Things Distracting Me From Completing Thirty Wyches By Next Saturday"...I've been thinking about picking up the new Necromunda since it came out a year and a half ago. I think I figured, at the time, "Nah... I've got Shadow War: Armageddon..." and it was only available in the box with the two gangs... I thought of getting it (and two more gangs) at Xmas for the whole family to play (though they didn't even have all the gangs out at that time)... but I'd just bought a skipload of Tallarn and wanted to focus on 40K... I thought maybe I'd wait until they collected them into separate books... and then there was Kill Team...Then they finally collected the rules into hardcover books and I got all excited about it again, but I was busy with Kill Team and getting fired up about Wrath & Glory... And then I started buying up old metal Necromunda figures FOR Wrath & Glory... And then someone on the local 40K forum said "Hey! Is anyone playing Necromuda locally? Is anyone intereste
(more distractions)I picked up the Kal Jericho omnibus novel collection and a pack of Kal and Scabs figures (the older metal ones) - not because I was planning to pick up Necromunda at any point in the immediate future (though it has been on the "Maybe Someday" Wishlist for some time), but because I was getting fired up to play Wrath & Glory and I thought the book might give me some background and inspiration and the figures might give me a couple more not-so-military 40k types to play with.I have to admit, since the new edition of Necromunda came out, I've been tempted to jump in. But for one reason or another... haven't... so far... First I was playing Shadow War: Armageddon... Then I was deep into Kill Team... Since the hardcover rulebooks were released late last year, that temptation has grown even more - it would be cheaper having to buy the core box set and a half dozen Gang War books to get all the rules (and, hopefully, the collected rules incorporates all errata, rule changes and FAQs so far)...
New models for Blood Bowl, Blackstone Fortress, Necromuna AND the yet unreleased Warcry! [...] The post Games Workshop Reveals – UKGE 2019 appeared first on Tabletop Games UK.
OK folks, so like last year, I attended a gaming WE in the city of Metz last week. It was the occasion for me to meet good gaming buddies and to play some games I don't get to play often enough, using stuff I had painted and not used yet !We were hosted by Nico and his gaming club and enjoy the wonderful activities he had prepared for us !Now let's take a look at the games played, take a good seat and the beverage of your choice, there's quite a few photos if you don't mind. ;)Read Moar Skullz »
Kim from Kreative Scenery has just released a laser cut 28mm scale Gothic Office Building. He was kind enough to give me a discounted copy to review here. The kit comes as a series of pre-cut 3mm MDF pieces, and a set of 3D-printed parts for the window and door detailing. This first photo shows my assembled kit and the gray parts were 3D printed. They sit very nicely into the laser cut MDF framing, and Kim sensibly recommends you paint them separately before gluing them into place. The parts are fully cut, which means the larger pieces are shipped loose in a box, and the smaller pieces included in a set of envelopes. This reduces the shipping weight for international buyers and means you can build straight out of the box using the emailed instructions. You can see the pieces I’ve scattered across my building table in this photo. The parts were assembled with PVA, with any excess being removed with a damp brush. That’s why some of the MDF looks a little pre-stained in these photos. The build ins
For my birthday (ok... that was way back in August) I asked for and gratefully received a box of the new Orlocks. I have always had Orlocks as my Necromunda gang, from way back in the day. These new lot put me off a bit when I first saw them, they seemed so different, but I must admit they are growing on me I have also had one of these objectives boxes for some time after snapping up one cheap from a games store on an online sale They are the current batch on my painting plan (ok.. that means they have sat on top of the cupboard in the kitchen for AGES whilst I find the time and motivation to get back into painting!)
Taking a break from the Eldar to finish off a few things that have been lingering a little too long on the periphery of my painting desk...The Lot of them.Additional Cawdor and Delaque Gangers for the gangs I've already painted...The complete Delaque Gang.I'm not bothering with a picture of all the Cawdor Gangers so far, as I have another batch of them still to finish up...Necromunda Esher Gangers. Actually only four of them are Esher Gangers (three of which I recently picked up from Airborne Grove)- the one I'm using as a leader is actually Mad Donna - a hired gun, and the one in Purple and Green (second from the right) is an old Judge Dredd Perp that I've had forever (and recently stripped and repainted).Preachers and Missionaries from the Adeptus Ministorum. I'm not sure why I based Uriah Jacobus on the rounded plastic base....? I was probably thinking he'd be a "leader" of this lot and needed something bigger... but didn't have a bigger washer...? Or perhaps when I picked him up I was thinking he could be
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
Hello again.It's a beautiful sunny day in Inso's World today... even if it is quite chilly.The last fortnight has pretty much been all about work, lack of sleep and a little bit of hobby here and there... but as of yesterday, I am not only on a week off work but have also acquired a head-cold so this post is going to be a bit random.Work. As I have mentioned before, I now work as a health care assistant (HCA) in a relatively high dependency, Dementia care home. As much as I love working there, there are times when it can be challenging because some of the residents have quite complex issues/needs. There is also the constant threat of residents passing away... another part of the job that can be challenging to deal with. Over the last couple of weeks, there has been a death, a fall (resulting in a leg injury), some very challenging behaviour and a couple of new residents who are going through a settling in period. There has also been a decline in some of the resident's health. As a result, I have had a lot of
A month or so ago I picked up a few more Red Redemptionists of eBay and have been painting them over the last few weeks.The new additions.The whole gang.Are they a "Gang"...? Or more of a Secret Society...? or Cult...? I suppose in Necromunda rules parlance they would have been a "gang", but fluff-wise there really more of a cult of fanatics. I wonder if they'll ever come out with new minis and rules for them in the new Necromunda?PriestDeaconsZealot - Because wielding an Eviscerator isn't crazy enough... he's got a FLAMETHROWER attached to the bottom.Brethren or CrusadersThese guys will most likely see action as baddies in Wrath & Glory - though I thought it might also be fun to field them as a unit of adepts in an Inquisitor's retinue in 40K - or maybe Kill Team, if they ever come out with rules for Inquisitorial Kill Teams (or perhaps I should say "WHEN"... I'm sure it's coming this year!)Coming Soon to Tim's Miniature Wargaming Blog:Something Eldar...Lots of distractions on the workbench... I've been
Well, you think you’ve looked away for a minute and life/the blog passes you by....Ferris Bueler was right! Here’s some Necromunda stuff to make up for it:Apologies for the lack of activity on the blog, it’s not that we’ve given up but sometimes life and toy solider get in the way of writing about toy soldiers!We’ve been up to quite a few things recently so here’s a list of stuff we can aim to cover to put the pressure on:- Necromunda- Titanicus- New Horus Heresy stuff as eleven club members went to the the Horus Heresy Weekender in February.- Star Trek ascendency - 10mm WWII and the completion of my French army for thisSo without further ado, the figures above are from Artel W and they are high quality resin top notch figures, we are using them as arbiters in our campaign. The boss is Judge Anderson style and very nice indeed. I have one more to do but he’s a bit different and for another day. These are pretty pricey but a great paint.
Another reincarnation of the Ambull is going to be released today, after the Dread Ambull, the Necromunda gang leaders can bulk up with some big buys, the Luther Pattern Ambots. Back in April 2018, so almost a year ago, we saw the first artwork in a teaser by Forge World. So when the miniature(s) were […]
A couple odd and sundry items coming off the workbench today...First a couple of torchbearers from Lead Adventure Miniatures. these guys have actually been sitting on my desk, finished, for a couple weeks now... and it looks like one got dinged in the process and chipped the paint on his torch! Bother!They're fun little minis. I'm not ENTIRELY sure how they got back on my workbench, when it was cleared of all fantasy projects some time ago... I think around the time John dropped off some figures he wanted me to paint for him for Frostgrave I was doing some organizing and putting away of things and happened to look in one of the Dwarf drawers and noted how very, very close these two were to being finished, and I plucked them out and put them on the workbench to finish off. I might have had some daft notion of painting up a handful more to use as a Dwarf war band for Frostgrave... but then quickly discarded that notion, as I have far too many other things I'd rather be painting and I have no shortage of ready-t
