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!
Q. What do you get if you cross a Chaos Centaur of Tzeentch, and a zebra? A. A “Tzebra”. Presenting Tzebra Doomstripe, the latest monster to swell the ranks of my vintage Warhammer collection. This tzoological monstrosity was my entry into the “Make a Trish” competition in the Oldhammer Community. Challengers had a month to model and paint a Trish Carden miniature, and the Mistress of Monsters herself would pick a favourite. Tzebra is not one actually one Trish Carden monster, but two mashed together. The MM94/1 Chaos Centaur Lord was a metal human torso designed to be fitted to the standard plastic Warhammer horse torso (henceforth: “horso”). But the plastic horso had spindly legs that looked wrong with the human torso’s majestically beefy barbarian arms, so I decapitated Trish’s MM83 High Elf Unicorn and used it as a replacement horso. This new unicorn part is, importantly, also saddle-free – Tzebra is a Lord of Chaos and tolerates no riders

Catachan Snipers - "The Ligar Scorpions" It is not just the Ratlings that are trained to hit a target the size of a credit chip from miles away. Some of the Catachan contingent make expert snipers. From birth on their Death World, Catchans are trained to use weapons and have to undergo regular target practice just to survive on their home planet. One of the smaller animals that infest their jungles is the Ligar Scorpions. These scorpions are about the length of a thumbnail and are coloured to match the background of the trees they normally spend most of their time hugging, lying in wait for their prey. They are patient hunters that actually wait for one of the other hundred odd species to run up the trunk of the tree by them before viciously striking out with their poisonous barb, instantly paralyzing their prey. The Ligar Scorpion squad act very much like their namesake - they are able to conceal themselves for long periods of time waiting for the right time to strike.

Yoyo,Ive got some finished pics of my Warlord Titan, Nuntio Dolores, based off the featured titan in the Black Library Novel, Titandeath, released earlier this year. I actually finished it a couple of months ago but I forgot to upload photographs here.. I've also just put the finishing touches on a Questoris Knight banner from House Makabius (Same as my 28mm house) to join the big fella.Pics:Princeps Majoris Terent Harrtek - Nuntio Dolores [Legio Vulpa Maniple 7]Princeps Majoris Terent Harrtek - Nuntio Dolores [Legio Vulpa Maniple 7]Princeps Majoris Terent Harrtek - Nuntio Dolores [Legio Vulpa Maniple 7]Princeps Majoris Terent Harrtek - Nuntio Dolores [Legio Vulpa Maniple 7]Princeps Majoris Terent Harrtek - Nuntio Dolores [Legio Vulpa Maniple 7]Princeps Majoris Terent Harrtek - Nuntio Dolores [Legio Vulpa Maniple 7]Legio Vulpa Warlord Titan - Nuntio Dolores with a House Makabius - Questoris Knight Support BannerHouse Makabius - Questoris Knight Support BannerHouse Makabius - Questoris Knight Support BannerThe
Ratling Snipers - "The Wasps" The Wasps pack quite a little sting. Ratling snipers, assuming you are able to feed them and keep them in drink and out of the stores, can make outstanding marksmen. The Wasps have worked with the regiment for many years. Able to make their way into the smallest of hidey holes they are able to hit the enemy from afar and with complete surprise, all with pinpoint accuracy.
I greet you warmly!I come back to the work of J.R.R. Tolkien in the form of orcs today! Yes, ladies and gentlemen, as Saruman used to say, "The Orc era has come!" The more important reason, however, was my shame. I've bought a group of Uruk-hai scouts, a good year ago, that would be nice to paint and join the forces of evil. I decided to make a mini project divided into 3 parts with orcs from Isengard under the name Amon Hen, which is the place of the Battle of the Followship of the Ring with the orc unit. The place of Boromir's death and kidnapping of the hobbits...To today's entry I have also added two elements of the wargaming terrain from Warhead Studio, which perfectly fit me to the ruins of the former watchtower of Gondor guarding the northern extremities of this land.I encourage you to take a look at this manufacturer's offer. It has many great elements of terrain and bases:https://warheadstudio.com/Warhead Studio FBAmon Hen. Part I. Uruk-hai.Uruk-ha

Tank Crew There are times when the might of the Imperial Vehicle is just not enough. Sometimes that Chimera or Leman Russ may "brew up" and the crew inside need to escape and make their own way back to safety. Each member of the tank crew is armed at all times and they are prepared to fight for their lives. If they can return to the holding area they may be able to crew up any spare vehicles that are being repaired or worked upon and get back into the fight.
Scout Sentinels - Badger Unit The Badgers form part of the recon arm of the regiment. The venerable old sentinels are adept at getting in and out of the smallest places unseen and thus can provide valuable intelligence for the rest of the army.
Servitors Without these the main lifting and shunting of ammunition, food and other supplies simply would not happen.
This is the first of a few posts that are not really, but kind of almost are, Lord of the Rings hobby related. There will be more LotR posts soon, but these are kind of linked in by the fact that in one of my imaginary worlds, these will be allies for factions that I will use Lord of the Rings figures for.First up are a couple of Games Workshop's Ushabti (apologies for the dull photo - light conditions are terrible at home due to the overcast/rainy weather we are currently experiencing)...I did have three of these (out of the four available in metal - jackal, crocodile, asp and vulture) but cannot seem to find the third one (the asp headed version). I managed to build and clean them up today whilst waiting for a small break in the weather that never came which would have allowed me to get out into the garden to undercoat more Games Workshop LotR minis. I also got a few more miniatures that I will feature over the next few days out of their bags/blisters in readiness for preparation tomorrow and the rest of th
