My dragoons... eh, hussars, are ready to take on the field of battle! Here follows a small review of the modification, which I bought from puppetswar.eu: Delivery-time was quite long, I believe somewhere between 4-6 weeks. Washing them is a good idea, as they seemed to have some dust particles of sorts. The mold-lines… Continue reading When the Martian Hussars arrive!
A commemoration from a great game yesterday. Admech Vs Drukhari. The container were in perfect position next to an objective-marker. We took turns moving in with our troops, only to get blown out on the opponents turn. It required a lot of movement to get in position all the time, and the measurements took hilarious… Continue reading The party-can arrives!
Time to go a bit space-crazy. Normally you stay uniform in terms of colouring. Three main colours, and sparingly with the rest. Simple harmonic rule of mine. The datasmith is an inviting break. Though more vibrant, I still rest on keeping the palette simple in terms of spread. More room for green, red, and especially… Continue reading Need to solder that gadget of yours? Cybernetica Datasmith gets it.
There are some parts of the community on GW I miss nowadays. Though I have to say I really like how Warhammer 40 000 has evolved in recent years, it's the crafting and individual love that makes me connect to the hobby. It's never been easier to create a great battlefield. GW produces a lot… Continue reading A silo for Omnissiah
Not much to add here. It might not be the biggest one in terms of newspapers - But I can cross being on the cover of a magazine off of my bucketlist. (A rough translation: "We want adolescents to be able to do alternate things on their spare time. That's why we invite adolescents and… Continue reading Heading for the headlines
As I insist on modifying every nook and cranny of my army, the same goes with my terrain. As the battle-board easily becomes recognized as the GW standard board, I might as well try giving at a little nice touch. The skull pits have a very grateful and natural recess. So in order to make… Continue reading Drop the acid
Following up on my previous post, its time to wrap up my first unit of troops. It was interesting painting a larger amount of models in one batch. On one hand, it became a bit of an assembly line, painting the different parts multiple times in a row. On the other hand, it was very… Continue reading Skitarii Rangers – part 2/2
Moving on, it as time for some troops. Here is where I started becoming comfortable with myself and began challenge myself; paying more attention to smaller details such as the hazard marking on the tubings, and free hand the patterns on their robes. One thing I came up with was the idea of adding more… Continue reading Skitarii Rangers part 1/2 – patched up and ready
If there is one piece in the army that deserves full attention, it is the leader. On the battlefields where the Adeptus Mechanicus deploys, it is the Tech-Priest Dominus who becomes first in command. And as such, I wanted to give mine a unique touch. Though I very much like the appearance of GW:s model,… Continue reading Tech-priestess Domina Felicia Tayber
Hello polystyrene my old friend. Wouldn't take long before I came back for this versatile material. Creating with polystyrene is quite messy. It's also a bit unforgiving, as exposing its characteristic structure easily breaks the immersion. So I went for a bit more expensive polystyrene; not having to deal with the crumbles of the standard… Continue reading Mountains of Mars, part II
