  1. Welcome back to Mini of the Week, where every Friday I will find a miniature from around the web that exemplifies an aspect of our hobby and share it with you. Read more »View the full article
  2. It's hot here (Michigan) today (in the 80s) but I went from my Air Conditioned house, into my Air Conditioned car, to my Air Conditioned office. So I guess it doesn't really bug me. Anyway, orruks, orruks orruks! Da orruks don't care bout no heat. Waaaghh!
  3. Do you not have Air Conditioning over in the UK?
  4. Coalescence, the global one day narrative event for Age of Sigmar, has come and gone and it was a tremendous success! Locally I ran my own event, set in the Endless Deserts of course. With 10 players fighting for our Keystone Shard, the Eye of Ptra, it was a super fun day with plenty of stories to tell from all of our games. Read more »View the full article
  5. When I first saw the new Primaris Marines I went through a few different ideas of how I would paint them, Ultramarines, Flesh Tearers, Crimson Fists; but in the end I decided this was the perfect opportunity to resurrect my own chapter from more than 10 years ago, the Sons of Dorn.

  7. I did some greenstuff work on my Banshee last night. Mostly just filled the gap in her wait, and some gaps on her arms. I still have a bit of work to do on the hand holding the knife, and probably will round out the waist in a few places. I also still want to do the magical energy coming off of her outstretched hand. I'm also thinking about putting her on the base with the two banshees swarming around her, and use them to elevate her a bit, kind of like a mini Nagash. At the moment it looks odd, so I will mess around with it a bit more, maybe heat them up and see if I can bend them more. I also messed around and came up with a warscroll for her to use in narrative/friendly games. In Matched Play games she will just be a regular Banshee who's my general with the command ability that makes her a wizard. The black box on the warscroll will have a picture of the finished and painted model later on.
  8. So last night I was messing around with the Banshees from the Mortis Engine kit, trying to figure out the best way to stick them on a regular base when I looked at some of the other bits I wasn't going to use from that model. I thought the torso from the lead vampire on it was particularly Banshee-esque so I started messing around with other parts and this is what I came up with! Still a lot of greenstuff work to do, mostly filling gaps, like at the waist, and re-sculpting detail that was lost. I may sculpt magical flames coming off her outstretched hand. I'm also playing with the idea of elevating her above 2 of the banshees from the Mortis Engine, so they are swarming around her. I may switch out the head too for one from the Mortis Engine Banshees with some greenstuff work. I'm unsure on that though, I kind of like the look of this, like the death magic has stripped her flesh away. Thoughts? Her robes are made out of the Coven Throne curtains by the way
  9. This is unofficial, but I whipped this up really quick for you. No points though. Sorry.
  10. Largely equivalent to the Grand Alliance books for AoS, the new 40k released a series of five Indexes to cover all of the rules for every existing army and currently in production model for the system on day of launch. So what exactly do these books cover and how much do they have for each faction? Read more »View the full article
  11. Thanks! Here's a link to the post where I talk about it:
  12. Dammit... that sounds awesome. And like a lot of conversion work. But now I feel like I need to explore that idea.
  13. Yeah, they're a base coat of white, washed with Nihlahk Oxide, re-layered with white. On the windows of the frigates it was several layers of white building it be stronger towards the center. Thanks! I plan on doing a few more of my armies in the Endless Deserts too. Am toying with restarting my Stormcast in a different Stormhost with desert bases or just rebasing the ones I have. I'm afraid the gold armor may get lost in the sand color though.
  14. I was lucky enough to get a review copy of the Dark Imperium boxset, which comes with the same full, hardcover rulebook for 40k that you can buy separately. Not only have the rules been radically revised, but the background of the setting is moving forward in a big way for the first time in over a decade. So, let's crack it open and take a look inside!

  15. I realized I never posted my Kharadron Overlords here. They are from my own skyport, Barak-Mor, which is currently soaring above the sands of the Endless Deserts. Sorry for the huge picture dump, but that's everything I have painted so far, 500 points. I haven't decided if I am going to paint more of them, but if I do it'll be up to 1,000 points. I'm thinking my next additions would be another Arkanaut unit, a Khemist, 10 Thunders all with rifles, and 3 Endrinriggers all with their chainsaws.
