Let’s Talk! – About Competitive Warhammer 40k

Ridvan (also known as Skari) of competitive-play YouTube Channel ‘SkaredCast’ (https://www.youtube.com/user/SkaredCast) joins me in the studio for a discussion about how the competitive side of Warhammer 40,000 dominates the conversation about the game and influences even the casual players at your local hobby shop and even Games Workshop itself.

Genestealer Cult - Brother Medlock

Not every cult member gets fancy power hammers and swanky mining lasers. Some of the brethren just have to make do. Vyrion Medlock here has to put up with a simple, ah, halberd? Machete stick? Knife-pole?Anyway, whatever it is, it pales in comparison to the magnificence of that cape. Stylish, high collared, shoulder length AND it has a beautiful gold clasp. So impressive is brother Medlock's cape that he has chosen to leave his top off so as not to distract from it's glory. Buck Rogers would be green with envy. Check it out:With a cape like that the 3rd generation are in the bag.I've been meaning to paint this fella for ages. Sculpted by Bob Olley, he's based on the original unreleased hybrid that, let's be honest, I have no chance of acquiring. Unless you have one. If you have one gimme it.In any case, this guy is pretty hard to come by as well, so I was delighted to snag one. I've been pushing him higher and higher up the painting list, and finally, with BoYL coming up he made it. I fancy having him run dow

Genestealer Cult - Cult Mindslaves

Leading on from my musing on cult mindslaves, I fired two of these revolting meats-sacs under the brush. In case you missed my thrilling justifications for adding these to my cult force, here it is again. Previously (read in 80s American TV voice) on Mr Saturday's Mumblings:The holy ones of the Wyrm-Forged spread the blessings of the Star Gods under the direction of the grandsire himself. There is one blessed one however, who is only unleashed under the most dire need. One whom even the faithful are wary of, for they sense its wrongness innately.Known as the Chimera, this scion of the cult is unique. It is an anomaly, its asymmetric form at odds with the perfection of those of the 5th generation. Its body shifts and alters over time as the genetic legacy of the hivemind boils within. New claws grow even as old limbs wither and are re-absorbed. Eyes disappear under chitinous armour which sloughs away to reveal new flesh. In this way the Chimera is a constantly evolving microcosm of the hivemind itself. This is

Genestealer Cult - Mindslaves

Lately I've been mulling over the old tyranid list from White Dwarf 145. There are several entries in there I'd love to paint. Zoats, mindslaves, squigs and the old plastic tyranids. Seeing as I'm already doing a genestealer cult this list has caught me by the hobby. You know how it is.I can run many of these units in modern 40k or Killteam. The first unit that piqued my interest was the mindslaves:In its larval stage the parasitic Mind-Slaver feeds upon the Tyranid's captives. It burrows into the victim's skull and searches for the brain stem. Here it clasps in place with its legs and attaches itself to the base of the brain.At first the immature creature is not powerful enough to influence its host but, as it feeds from the blood stream, it becomes stronger, allowing it to take over and direct all of the creature's higher brain functions. These victims are known as mind slaves. Although they are captives, their actions and thoughts are completely controlled by the Tyranids.If the ship is attacked, the mind

Tyranid Army For Sale

I'm having a bit of a clean out and my Tyranid army is listed on e-Bay.. they've been in a box for well over two years and I decided to set them free (I expect the Inquisition to show up at my door any time now).There are 86 models and it was 2300 points in 7th edition, but I've never calculated the cost in 8th. The paint scheme is easy to replicate so the army will be a snap reinforce. I'll supply a list of paints to the winning buyer.

Genestealer Cult - The Saviour

The blessed ones are revered by the Wyrm-Forged, as it should be. They are purity of form made manifest, unburdened by the weaknesses of mankind. They are, in the whole, aloof, and unconcerned by the travails of their lesser brethren. However, some do appear to favour their kin more than others, none more so than the one known as the saviour.The Yogoth kin are well known among the Kabeiri. Many of their number bearing the unmistakable mark of the coiled hunter. (This variant of genestealer is known as the Ymgarl strain to the adepts of the Ordo Xenos.) This particularly strong trait is even known to appear in the 3rd generation. The Saviour is broodfather to the current cycle of the Yogoth, and through some quirk of the gene-cycle is uncharacteristically protective of its hybrid offspring. So much so that it famously interposed itself between its great-grandson, Eldir, and the plasma pistol of Inquisitor Krasek. Leaping in front of the gush of plasma, one of the saviour's arms was incinerated in the blas

Kill Team Updates Killing Time – One Year On

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.

40k Aeldari Eldar Rangers

Take aim! More Xeno! Eldar Rangers was what I did after the earlier Eldar Reaper project. These Eldar Rangers are fine cast as well. Thus, its the same issue with the quality of the miniature. Fine cast tend to warp bend especially if there’s long sticking objects in the miniature. I guess for the Eldar Rangers the rifle tend to warp bend over time. Even straighten after using a hair dryer, they still do warp over time. Client wanted a lava sort of theme base. The platform where the Eldar Rangers stand were made from cork material sheet. Had to tear them up to form the platform looking design on the base. The Eldar Rangers cloak were painted with a orange grey sort of camo design as requested by client. The orange camo cloak design camouflages with the lava base theme design as intended… -1 BS to shoot! haha!

T`au SEED Destiny: ZGMF-2000 GOUF Ignited

My latest unit in my Gundam SEED Destiny inspired T`au army, this is the first set of 3 Battlesuits that will become my force's mainstay units.Basicaly standard Crisis suits, and they have the option to add an extra armoured suit.So to represent the special upgraded 2+ suit, I used an old commander head for the `leader` of the squad, and armed him with the Cyclonic Ion Blaster, a bit of the T'au equivalent of a plasmagun as it has the danger of overloading and wounding the bearer.  The other two come with the Burst cannons to lay down a serious amount of firepower with the unit.They also have Missile Pods each, but more importantly, and together with the 'horn' on the head of the leader, they have shields.Joining the squad are six drones, in the form of 2 Marker Drones and 4 Gun Drones.And those let me to teh completed unit, good for 254 points to add to the tally...The Inspiration:The GOUF, a mass produced, more close combat orientated suit that usually works in unison with the ZAKU.  They are ofte
