After taken a look at background and fluff of Traitor’s Hate it’s now time to dive into the rules segment. I’ll do a (not so) quick post on the more general dataslates and rules. That is Renegade Knights, vehicle squadrons for Chaos Vindicators and Chaos Predators, Khârn the Betrayer and the Khorne Lord of Skulls. […]Read more "Traitor’s Hate Review: part 2 – Dataslates"
The holographic map of Moot Harkan shimmered with a bluish tint, casting a pale light on the two Heretic Astartes standing before it. The Shrine World was all but lost to the Tyranids. Elements from the Astra Militarum still held out close to the Citadel City but their number were dwindling. Chaos Lord Davos Vane, the […]Read more "Bring me the Heart of the Iron Oracle – background and list"
The 13th Black Crusade is about to be unleashed. Next week. The picture is straight of Games Workshop’s Warhammer 40 000 Facebook page. Note the icon in the top right corner, this is going to be a series of campaign books. I expect new formations and detachments and hope for new rules, psychic powers and […]Read more "Traitor’s Hate"
To celebrating my 100th post I give you the Slaughtersmith – Slaugterpriest/Warpsmith conversion. It was a quite fiddly and frustrating process and I just didn’t think of picking up the phone to snap any shots. Sorry. I did take some photos of him before priming. Now check this badboy out! The humble beginning, an awesome […]Read more "WIP: Slaughtersmith conversion"
I managed to do a little work on the Forgefiend conversion before skipped off to work. I concentrated on the neck. It is mostly done, I’ll just run some cables from the head back to the neck and tidy up some of the details. That’s it for this time. It’s not much, but I wanted […]Read more "WIP: Forgefiend Conversion, part 6"
Remember way back when, when I said that I’d finish the legs the coming weekend. I almost did. Almost. Then time just kept on running by. You know the routine – work, family, responsibilities – the lamentations of adult life. And then the Euro2016 started. I’ve put down some work on the conversion, five minutes […]Read more "WIP: Forgefiend Conversion, part 4"
Here’s another quick update on the Forgefiend conversion. More sculpting on the legs and feet. The legs are near completion. I just need to make some armour plates for the lower legs and finish sculpting around the hips. Once that is done, I’ll fix the legs together and start working on the midriff. And from […]Read more "WIP: Forgefiend Conversion, part 3"
I’ve been keen to continue working on this monster of a project. The amount of work required to finish the conversion is daunting. It truly is. Well, I got some time in hobby room and worked a bit on the feet and legs. The process can’t be rushed as the Green Stuff needs to cure […]Read more "WIP: Forgefiend conversion, part 2"
Among the formations in the Black Legion codex supplement two really stood out – The Cyclopia Cabal and Daemon Engine Pack. At least to me, these are the must-have formations of the book. I did a run-down of them and the rest of the formations a few weeks ago. I have enough models to run […]Read more "WIP: Forgefiend Conversion part 1"
I was actually surprised by the lack of good or at least decently updated rules for the Black Legion. Or maybe not surprised but still disappointed. They could have done so much more with little to no effort. Just look at the Angles of Death Supplement. (Or don’t, it won’t help with the disappointment.) At […]Read more "For the Warmaster, part 2 – Formations of the Black Legion"
