Terrain update 17/6/2018

With an eye on the Taros campaign requirements, and also just for fleshing out my battlefields for gaming in general, I have managed to complete some much needed walling or barrier style terrain. Would that I were a fancy slag capable of throwing money at Aegis Defense Line kits to adorn my war torn tabletops, but alas it is not to be and so I have turned my hand at making my own on the cheap. With a heavy emphasis on cheap.

Campaign Map

The guys over at Advanced Tau Tactica are currently running a global campaign centering on the Invasion of a T’au planet by Ork Forces under the leadership of Warboss Wurrshuv.  The campaign has been running for 5 weeks now, and with no clear winner in sight I have decided to commit the forces of Kel’lys Sept to the fight.  For the Greater Good!

Painting Update 7/6/2018

With the great build cracking on at a fair pace, I have now almost completed the 5th Company of my Dark Angels successor chapter the ‘Night Sentinels’. Although I still have a lot to paint, just getting them built will be a big step in the right direction and another item ticked off the old to do list.

However, it is not all sprue grey as far as the eye can see, as I have managed to paint the last piece of my 5th Company puzzle – the Apothecary!

So as we move into the half way point of the year, it is time to review some of those season long deadlines that I set myself as part of the 2017-18 To Do list.  While I have made some progress with the T’au and Dark Angels, I have not really made much of a dent in my building targets for the season, and as the end of the season is only three months away, I thought it best to crack on and get some building done.

For the latter, the best way of turning a profit is to find a house that doesn’t need much work – the basics are already there, it just needs a facelift with the minimal outlay in time and effort to result in an increase in value.

Crappy conversions part 3: Fireblade

IMG_0043

Hate is a strong word, and not one I often find myself employing in life, let alone in the context of wee plastic men being pushed around the table to pew pew noises. However, every now and then a sculpt will come out of the GW forge which is at odds with the many, MANY great sculpts they produce, and you will be forced to drop the Hate bomb. Well, the time is now. I hate the cadre firebalde scupt…

‘Countdown’

Orks-3

Shas’O, we have multiple intruder alerts, repeat, the Io’Tar has been boarded.’

‘Contain and destroy them, Shas’el.’

‘Affirmative, Shas’O.’

The comms link terminated abruptly, replacing the squall of background static with the ferocious din of battle.

O’Vash strode down the shuttle’s ramp and ducked back into the chamber.  Weapons fire strobed through the lightless corridors of AX-118, the air filled with small arms ricochets and the occasion crump of grenades against the drifting hulks bulkheads, all adding to the cacophony of war that was fast becoming a vision of hell.
