Let’s start this Wargaming Week, covering the 14th through to the 20th of January. BLOG STUFF Nothing this week – it’s not really been a very hobby active time. NEWS On the other hand, so much news. Black Site Studios has released a pile of buildings suitable for Ultramodern Middle East battles. They have really focused on the more urban areas, and the first release is a nice pair of focal buildings as well as various walls. As with all Black Site stuff, these are prepainted MDF and so are ideal for getting onto the board quickly. But that’s not all! There was a second wave of releases focusing on smaller buildings designed to add to the battlefield, giving you a few smaller obstacles that will need to be fought around or through. Finally, great news for UK gamers! Spectre Miniatures will be stocking the Black Site stuff this side of the pond. Initially it will be for pre-order but there are plans to have them alongside the other things you mig
I bought this model at last years Salute I think, I can’t remember who makes it, but it works well as a Servitor model at a control console.
Mr Steinberg and I had a game of Kill Team recently, my Elucidian Starstriders against his Astartes Marines. This was a simple take and hold objectives game with one in the middle and four more dotted around. Some nice large crates had Voidmaster Nitsch and the Assassin make good use of cover to keep out of line of sight ready to charge heroically into combat. The trouble with holding an objective is that some poor chap has to go stand next to it in the open. Voidmaster Nitsch was not quite close enough for a charge so he moved up to try soem ranged attacks. Meanwhile, Elucia Vhane charged into the Marines, she is a tough cookie so can take care of herself. The Starstrider Assassin failed to charge a couple of times, leaving the Starstriders to get a bit outnumbered. The Assassin was still not charging. The Starstriders did manage to hang on to some objectives and squeak a win, but it was very close. Kill Team is a nice game, a great opportunity to work on a nice small group of models.
The first expansion for Adeptus Titanicus adds 8 new Legios, 5 new Maniples and a set of basic campaign rules for linking your games of Adeptus Titanicus. Check out my full review!
The survivors have pushed their way to the lower level of Sanctuary. Determined to secure a foothold, Negan orders them forwards…
I am calling this chap the Reactor Engineer, another model with heavy protective gear and a large wrench and a mallet for when you REALLY need to tighten up that pesky nut…
To keep the old bucket of bolts flying, plenty of engineers are required. An apprentice engineer, an old timer and of course someone to yell at them.
The latest edition of the Age of Sigmar Skirmish has released in the pages of the January 2019 White Dwarf! Penned by Warhammer World veteran John Bracken (you might remember him from the Gargant mini-game for Shadespire) the core rules let you play Open, Narrative and Matched Play games with ANY models in your collection. Pick a Grand Alliance and go! These rules will be particularly useful for fans of AoS 28 (Dark Age of Sigmar) as they will let you seamlessly use Warscrolls of any type together in a Grand Alliance.
With his cyborg leg, this heavily tooled up engineer from Lead Adventure is another of the Astropolis Kickstarter models I wanted for the transporter.
The host of Kobolds occupying Tor Varden and their insidious Shaman overlord have been slain. The vengeful Rangers continue to cut their way to the top of the tower, led on by the fait cries of someone left alive… but what they will find there will change the face of Alladore forever.
One of the Astropolis Kickstarter models makes a really good General for my British Steampunk army. He will also double up as a commander type for the rather large transporter, which I really must give a name, I am thinking the “Nagoya”.
Let’s start this Wargaming Week, covering the 7th through to the 13th of January. BLOG STUFF First up, I got a battle in on Thursday! As you can see on the post, it was an interesting game, both to organise and play. I’m looking forward to getting some more in! Also exciting was seeing that I’ve been playing Skirmish Sangin for 4 years this week. You can tell how much I like it by the fact it’s still my go to. I’m also seeing all the photos of my first painted models which are :|. NEWS Interesting news from Warbanner this week. They and Special Artisan Service Miniatures have partnered up to help bring SASM to the UK and the EU and make it easier for our American cousins to get their hand on Footsore and Warbanner. Warbanner also has a very good relationship with Sarissa, which could mean great news for anyone looking for more modern terrain. I’m not going to add my own comment to this news – but I wish everyone involved the best in t
