Owen from Gaming with the Cooler and I run through the event pack from Adepticon 2019, starting with Vital Supplies as my Genestealer Cult takes on his Grey Knights!
This commission was for a custom Astra Militarum squad and a Sentinel. The upper body, head and weapon on the squad are from a third party provider in resin. Most of the faces were covered in a breathing mask. Bases are from Games Workshop. These were all painted with a colour scheme to match the Space Marine Storm Warden blue and metal colours. These were all painted to level 4 quality.
It’s time for another GMG Review! Today we take a look at the latest Codex for 40k, the Chaos Knights. This book expands on the seleciton from Chapter Approved 2018 with new Strategems, Relics, Dreadblades and Alignment abilities with the Infernal and Iconoclast Houses. House Metallum is off the rails and has become an Infernal Household! Joined by a small force of Night Lords, they take on the Aeldari in a 1750pt Matched Play game. NOTES: We made a couple mistakes during the game. The Infernal buff to guns only applies to a single gun per round on a Knight. It wasn’t super relevant but I might have mixed that up on an additional gun once or twice. The Pyrothrone also only causes an auto-explode if you die from a Perils. I did make an example roll however and did pop a six to mention it does limit the exploding size, so it was exploding regardless as I did make a roll; we just messed up why it exploded.
f you revel in the prospect of running an army of Chaos Knights, then by all means, jump into the Chaos Knights Codex with both feet. Just don't be expecting it to be a rich and fully-fleshed experience as with other armies. [...] The post Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Knights Codex Review appeared first on Tabletop Games UK.

Reinforcement is on the way! 40k Dark Angel Ravenwing Landspeeder Typhoon just sped past! I have never painted a 40k Landspeeder before, so when I got this project then, there’s definitely excitement in it, ha ha! The challenge of this I guess its the black colour of the Ravenwing design. Black is one of the tough colour to paint, though its just black. The trick usually revolves around giving the black subtle shades of grey to create the feel of highlight and shadows. For this 40k Dark Angel Ravenwing Landspeeder Typhoon, I painted it airbrushing subtle shades of grey on the near edges and high point of the Landspeeder. Try to imagine the high points as how and where would the light lands on that surface. Usually I observed black things around me in day to day, and take note of the shades of highlights and shadows on the black objects.
The re-imagined and reinvigorated rule set for grand-scale warfare in Warhammer 40,000 sees me keen to dive back into the mayhem. [...] The post Warhammer 40,000: Apocalypse – Review appeared first on Tabletop Games UK.
Another 40k transport, this time its the Dark Angel Stormraven which I painted a while back. Come to think of it, I have already painted a total of 3 Stormravens already. The 4th one will be my own, or will it be? Ha ha! Though I have painted a few Stormravens, I still have the issue that its fuselage is not long enough. The Stormraven was painted with the usual air brush techniques and then touched up and outline with brushes. The weapon options were fully magnetized as requested by client. The Dark Angel definitely has a new ride now, darkness from the sky… sound like a good new Dark Angel tactline, ha ha!
If you haven't heard of #HobbyStreak before, it's a challenge intended to help hobbyists maintain momentum on their modeling projects. Every day, spend at least 1/2 hour on some sort of hobby activity– Painting, assembly, even cleaning mold lines or tidying up your work station counts! Every day, post a photo of your progress on Twitter with #HobbyStreak, and see how long of a streak you can maintain. Over the past month, I've been maintaining my hobby streak by chipping away at a few projects that I have finally finished... almost. Read more »
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.

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
Ciaran’s Genestealer Cult takes on my Death Guard in this 2k Matched Play game!
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
