Ghazghkull Thraka and Makari

There are very few characters in the 40k universe that are as iconic as this one. As a matter of fact, it's only now that I'm typing these words that I do realise how Ghazghkull is a big chunk in many ways.I've been meaning to paint this big fellow for a while now but only got to it now because I had the opportunity and someone had been kind enough to get me the model !Read Moar Skullz »

Killa Kans and the Game of Apocalypse that Never Was...

A couple weeks ago I decided to help Finnegan get some of his miniatures painted. I was experimenting with coloured primers and washes as well as the new Contrast paints from Games Workshop. I ended up knocking off one of his Killa Kans in a evening - while working on a number of other things as well - and thought "Well this is easy, I'll show him how I did this on one of the other ones, while he paints the third... and boom - the unit will be done!"But I didn't get to that until a few weeks later...Boom! Unit of Killa Kans complete... So, I basically ended up painting two of these for him, and he painted one... but, whatevs, they're done and we can play with them... (Can you guess which two I painted and which one Finnegan painted!?)So I figured it was time we set up an Apocalypse game with his Orks!!All last week we kept saying we should play a game. We finally got a game set up, maybe Thursday, but didn't end up having time that day.... or... Friday... and by Saturday, well, I needed to put everything away

Krootox Rider (and another Gretchin!)

Things are flying off the workbench fast and furious these days! Too bad none of it is my own Necromunda stuff I've been wanting to work on!? I started the Gretchin at the same time as the last two and just finished it up last night, and he Krootox Rider... well... It was primed along with the remaining 12 Kroot Warriors that I was going to show Finnegan how I painted them and let HIM go at it... and it was just sitting there... and looked really cool... and looked really easy to paint... so I went ahead and painted it!?The Krootox Rider - giving Finnegan's Kroot force a bit of fire support. All painted with contrast colours - except the dread-spines on the head (which was painted with regular black paint and highlighted with grey) and the metal parts of the gun (painted metal and washed in Nuln Oil).The Gretchin. This is an older metal Gretchin - not sure where he came from...? Looks like a Mechboy's assistant? As with the others - all painted with Contrast paints - except the scrap metal on the tray.Co

More Eldar Guardians and... Gretchin!?

More experimenting with Contrast paints - and mixing them with regular paints and coloured primers... I swear by the time I figure out the best way to do these Guardians to teach Keira how to do it... there won't be any for her to do it on... because I'll have done them all.Asuryani Guardian Defenders of the Thaestalyrdaes Craftworld.Now that I've done these... there are five left to do.... well assembled ones. She did say she has a few more to assemble. Definitely has a weapon platform, or two, to paint...I really should get a picture of her entire force so far - It's gotten quite big - and there's a WRAITHKNIGHT!!I did get Finnegan to finally assemble the rest of his Kroot assembled and I sprayed those with a bone colour - along with a bunch of his Genestealer Cult minis and a few Orks and Gretchin. I knocked off a few Gretchin yesterday just to see how fast I could... pretty fast actuallyOld GW Gretchin.I think a friend found these at a garage sale and passed them along...? We have a PILE of them - al

Orks.. lots of orks......

Now then,I got back into #warhammer40k kind of by accident. I was innocently digging through some old boxes of miniatures, and stumbled upon my old eldar army, then my old imperial guard army. Whilst sat there contemplating my misspent youth, I thought, why not go online, and take a look.... what harm could there be?Now I ve never stopped enjoying the background to the whole 40k universe, even whilst painting historical armies, I'd be listening to audiobooks from the black library,  such an immersive universe,  great stories, great characters. Anyway, getting back to the point....I found a channel called striking scorpion82 on YouTube. It was just as 8th edition was being released, I sat and watched an unboxing of the core set, and a rundown of the game. And I thought it looked great.So some digging about in my mountain of shame later, I'd found an unpainted ork starter army from a previous edition. Things escalated quite quickly from there.....THE DEATHSKULLSMy ork army is from the Deathskulls trib

Shadow War Campaign Final Mission Part Three

When we last left the Shadow War Campaign Final Mission, the Sisters of Battle had taken the lead having captured their primary objective and carried it off the table via their deployment zone.Part one, covering the mission and deployment is here.Part two is here.When we left things in Part Three, the Sisters of Battle had just carried their Primary Objective off the table, securing them 3 victory points. As they were in second position on the leader board, that meant any other Kill Team than the Orks needed 4 Victory Points to beat them and win the campaign.Enough Orks had recovered to try and drag their primary objective, the Doomsday Device, back towards the table edge. But they were now coming under attack from Blood Angel Scouts and Tau, both of whom needed to go through the Orks to get their own objectives and both of whom needed to stop the Orks if they were going to win the campaign.But despite the heavy attack, the Orks kept struggling on.Meanwhile, having lost the Data Bank that was their primary ob

Chaos orks and a complete Realm of Chaos Warband !

Just a week after Jon finished his warband, here is the last unit in my warband : the chaos orks !I have to be honest and say I pretty much painted those guys along the minotaurs and the renegade but by painting the colours in the right order, I could progressively get some of the models out of the paint queue and get a feeling of progress !Read Moar Skullz »

Part One, covering the mission rules and deployment is here.The Orks took the first turn and advanced quickly, swarming over the archeotech.The Sisters of Battle advanced more cautiously, sending out a scout ahead while the rest followed on.At the end of turn 1, the Dark Eldar and Blood Angels arrived, deploying on opposite sides on the far left and near right.The Dark Eldar quickly found themselves under heavy fire from the Orks.While the Sisters broke off part of their forces to pursue this new threat.The Orks had seized much of the archeotech, but were now under heavy fire from all sides.

Shadow War Campaign Final Mission Part One

When I last posted about my Shadow War campaign it was December 2018, I had just completed round 5 and four of the six Kill Teams had gathered the 10 data caches I had decided was necessary to finish the campaign. Since then, I let things go quiet, partly because I got absorbed in my Blood Angels and Death Guard painting project and partly because I needed the time and space to bring the campaign to a suitably climactic end.The original Necromunda Campaign rules, on which Shadow War's rules are based, had nothing to say about actually ending a campaign. You simply continued to play games and build up your gang until everyone died, got bored or grew out of wargaming entirely.Shadow War improved on this by introducing victory conditions using its concept of Promethium Caches. Once one Kill Team collected 15 caches, if they won one more mission they would win the campaign. So far, so basic. For my campaign I changed the Promethium Caches to Data Caches and reduced the required number for victory to ten. But I ne

Monopose Monstrosities - 2nd edition 40k Gretchin

OK so there was a small challenge on a french FB hobby page and the subject was... monopose monstrosies...For some reason I can hardly resist those kind of challenges especially when they give me the right motive to paint some stuff I want to paint but can't be arsed to. Anyway, that meant I knew immediately that I wanted to paint a 2nd ed gretchin because it has got to be one of the most evocative of those models.Read Moar Skullz »
