The iconic anti-hero himself, new and improved. This kit was a blast to assemble and had some hidden easter eggs that provided a unique look at the tactical dreadnought armor. Back in black and lets see if he can put a new spin on that old Vigilus invasion.Enjoy!
Warlord Titan & Armigers With the final details done on the Warlord I am going to consider these guys done for now, the bases of the Armigers are going to be matched to part of my diorama project while the Warlord will have his base painted to match a pair of titanicus warhounds that I am planning to paint up in the future to act as his hounds. Both armigers and the warlord next to brother Nixios who shares there colour schemeRex Monte with the jackal symbol on his left shoulder. On the right shoulder sits the heraldry of the...continue reading
It’s time for another GMG Review – this time it’s Warhammer 40000’s Imperium Nihilus: Vigilus Ablaze and its companion book – Codex: Chaos Space Marines.
Simply put, it feels as though Vigilus Ablaze sets out and accomplishes most of its goals. Whatever happens after the events of this story, this is one book I'm not too disgruntled to be carrying around to most of my games. I foresee it getting plenty of use as it brings further life to my games. [...] The post Warhammer 40,000: Vigilus Ablaze – Review appeared first on Tabletop Games UK.
It's been a while due to the AHPC, but here is the first model for my 40k force painted up this year.And it's the commander for my Renegades and Heretics Slaanesh force.The model itself is actually one of the Freebooter's Fate fantasy pirate range, but I exchanged his scabberded sword with a plasmapistol, to represent him with this mighty pistol as well as a power sword.Taking more inspiration from the Italians in the second world war, where the officers in the desert theatre wore white uniforms with the necessary 'flouf', Iwent for an exorbirant colour scheme of adding pastel blues and purples to the uniform. Lapels, plumes, they all got this flashy treatment to make him really stand out as such.Now to start work on some more heavy guns for the force...
Back in my day, straightening bent weapons on metal models was easy. These days, newfangled styrene plastic model kits don't need any straightening at all. But in those dark times between metal and plastic, we were treated to formerly metal parts being cast in resin. And if a resin component was warped, straightening it could be quite a chore. Case in point: The Necron Heavy Destroyer's cannon. Here's a tutorial for fixing it without worrying about straightening the resin itself. Read more »
Warlord Titan I have painted the edges of the armour plates and have made a start on the weapons by giving the power claw its first pass of paint applications. Armigers Work continues on Venge getting him undercoated and laying down the base colour scheme as well as getting the armour trim finished. I now need to give the weapons another pass to bring them up to a good standard. I can do cleanup and final detailing tasks on both armigers and the warlord titan at the same time. Game colour dropper bottles make great stands for Armiger torsos.Venge...continue reading
More marines! After my board game projects, I am back to more marines, Thousand Sons Rubric Marines. Thousand Sons marines typically has more details to work on, especially the strip design on the helmet and chest. But still, painting them is always exciting. Had 2 squads of 10 of them, once completed that glorious feel of the gold and Thousand Sons blue colour feels good!
Legio Krytos returns to face the Warp Runners in another 1500pt Matched Play game! Some mistakes in this game; 1) When an attack damages a weapon on a model with a Carapace weapon the actual roll to determine which is hit is 1-2 Left, 3-4 Carapace, 5-6 Right. We missed that Special isn’t the Carapace location in this edition. 2) Damage rolls of 1 are always superficial, regardless of strength. 3) Draining on the Quick Reference says advance the Reacter, the rulebook says push. We assume the Rulebook is actually correct in this case and that we shouldn’t have trusted the Quick Ref. 4) Jury is out on how many times a Stratagem can be used as the rulebook unfortunately isn’t clear.
Past friday, I took to the field of battle for my second League game, and this time I didnt forget any troops so to claim the League's fully painted bonus hehehe.My opponent was Steven, long time club member who I've only faced before in fantasy battles.The Emperor's Children consisted of a warlord in Terminator armour, a sorcerer and a dark apostle, a squad of Marines with 2 flamers, 10 Noise Marines, 2 units of 20 Cultists, 2 Helbrutes, a Predator and a Rapier battery consisting of 2 quad bolters and 1 laser destroyer.Opposing me where the Kabal, cnsiting of 2 archons, a succubus and a heamonculus. A raider and a venom both carried kabalite warriors, supported by Mandrakes, Wracks, 2 Talos and a Chronos, Reaver jetbikes, Hellions and Scourges, and a unit with heavy weapons.The scenario we rolled on was Spoils of War, and so we set up for what will become a very bloody battle.Turn 1I went first, and moved some units a bit forward to be sure to camp on some objectives should those cards come out.
Warlord Titan & armigers. I am putting these three models together in a group update as they are all using my void jackals colour scheme and are roughly the same size. The Warlord Titan (Rex monte) has been posted striding forwards into battle. Closing the distance between himself and his foes as I selected the power claw option (Purely for aesthetic reasons. As If I ever acquire the 40k scale one I would still get the power claw as it looks awesome.) to go with the plasma and laser blasters. As this model is to be used as a representative...continue reading
Check out the flipthrough and Review of the Shadowspear boxed set here! I’m joined by Owen from Gaming with the Cooler as we throw down with the upcoming Warhammer 40k Starter Set from Games Workshop.
Shadowspear feels like another reasonable move forward from Games Workshop with Warhammer 40,000. Yet, I fear it comes as a step forward when a potential leap could have been made. [...] The post Shadowspear – Stoking the Good & Bad Fires of 40K appeared first on Tabletop Games UK.
