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.
Finishing off my Shadowspear Marines, I throw down a Matched Play game with my Sons of Russ against Owen’s Heretic Astartes!
So whats makes Thunder Chrome JS different? Simple, the main element that really changes this up is modular kits. Just like your Favourite GW miniatures, Thunder Chrome designs are all modular You print the pieces you want and put together like a giant jigsaw [...] The post Thunder Chrome 3 – Highway to Castle Painskull appeared first on Tabletop Games UK.
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!
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

Jimmy has painted his first 1000pts of Chaos to face down my Gothic Sector fleet in a Cruiser Clash!
Work and life have kept my Doomsday Ark project from moving as quickly as I would have liked, but I still managed to get a significant chunk finished this week. Each of these rib sections was made up of 46 component pieces that all needed to be painted separately before assembling it all! Here's how everything came together... Read more »
Check out all the things I painted this week and take a look at upcoming projects, including an unboxing of Batman: Gotham City Chronicles!
Xeno for a change. Got a project for 40k Aeldari Dark Reapers. I recalled when I was doing this project, the pain wasn’t coming from Drukhari, but the pain was coming from fine cast. Painting fine cast miniatures are really a pain still though. The imperfect texture and areas where there’s bubbles, sometimes I just ignore those pain and just carrying on painting. Refreshing colours for a change. Client wanted a dark grey and orange sort of colour scheme to match his army I recalled. The orange was fun to work with, I had to test out different shade to finally achieve this desired one. Overall, the 40k Eldar Dark Reapers still looks good with colours!

Back to the battlefield in our TSA League, as past friday I faced the Astra Militarum forces of Peter, a person I hadn't played before in the club.Doling around in the middle of table currently, this battle might get me back in the race for the podium, but then of course it are the Guard, with all their massed tanks and infantry troops, while I will be trying out the reinvigorated Havocs this battle.My force, fielded with the 2.0 codex, was build around a heap of troops legging it to the other side in order to start slaughtering guardsmen (or at least, that is the plan), and Lucius will be joining as such a large mob of chainsword armed Marines.Supporting them will be another Marine squad as well as my beloved Noise Marines. A firebase, gathered around my Warlord for those precious re-rolls consists of two Quad Bolter rapiers, a Hellbrute and said Havocs with two heavy bolters and two chaincannons. My Sorcerer will be lurking nearby for those important Prescience spells, while a squad of Raptors w
