The Yeoman

I’ve got a fixed date for a RoR match with my Dwarves against Elrond’s Skaven finally. This will most likely increase the need to test other teams aswell right after the match. So my Bretonnians got some mounted supply today. Also I changed my list quite a bit again: 1x Knights of the Realm 1x Gallant 8x Man-at-arms 3x Peasant Bowmen 3x Light Armour 1x Mounted Yeomen 15 1x Light Armour 1x Shield 100 Points in total I noticed a funny detail about the miniature while I painted it. I’ve never ever painted a rider on a regular horse before. Sure, there were Goblins riding wolves or riding Varg, recently even riding ...

Zuurgath Raal, Lord Navigator in service of the Word Bearers

Lord Navigator Zuurgath Raal has been navigating the ships of the Word Bearers Legion ever since the first fleet of transporting the sons of Lorgar left Terra. From then on Zuurgath Raal climbed up in the hierarchy of his Navigator House becoming a Lord Navigator. Being close with the leadership and the officers around Lorgar himself, Zuurgath was amongst the very first mortals to embrace the dark goods. This model has been lying around for years now and I finally managed to paint him. Not much to tell, honestly, except for the red of his robe. I went for a slightly different red to distinguish him from the rest of the Legion. Thus I chose a deep crimson with ...

Bounce!

Today I’m able to present a new Event Card for my ever growing WHQ project. This time it’s four Squig Hoppaz. They are not included as a printed card within the Lair of the Orc Lord Expansion, but on page 25 you can find the quite entertaining rules for them. My own card will have 1+1D3 Squig Hoppaz and feature the rules as described in the rule book inlcuding that fitting Bounce! rule. ...

Eldar Warp Spider (alternative model)

Today I have something really exciting to show: alternative models for Eldar Warp Spiders by Ghost Miniatures from Russia. Frankly, I have been dreaming about a remake of this aspect shrine not only for years, but decades. Literally the old models by GW were some of the first Warhammer 40k I ever got, back in second edition. Somewhere (I actually don’t really recall where) I stumbled upon some painted Warp Spiders that looked amazing. First thing I thought was of course: Wow, thats a nice scratch build! Then I googled a bit and found the manufacturer Ghost Miniature, about whom I cannot really tell anything, since the whole website is in Russian. But like always: the ...

Astral Telepathy

Colony 87 is back with a bang! The Kickstarter campaign went into the second round and this time I was able to get a full pledge featuring all miniatures released so far. Today I would like to present the “Priestess” here. Well in my opinion this one here makes a pretty neat Astropath on the gaming table. I only painted “Lord Greiss” and her so far but I will certainly find proper use and paint for the rest of them aswell. While painting her I got somehow reminded of an artwork from the 40.000 RPG showing two Voidborns. ...

Sulphur Sparks

Working again on the denizens of the Silver Tower. I started small with the Brimstone Horrors this time. I was wracking my brain how to paint them though. Of course the regular flames scheme seemed nice but I wanted flames to be the one connecting key element of all my Tzeentch related miniatures. So red wouldn’t have worked with the pink horrors thus I was in need for an alternate colour scheme. Brimstone – Sulphur – Yellow – et voilà! I think this will be a good colour contrast for all other miniatures. Pretty satisfied with the result right now and keen to test it on other miniatures aswell. ...

Boing!

While the WHQ expansion The Lair of the Orc Lord is finished since some time there are still at least two event cards which I would like to add to my card deck covering events related to any greenskins. That would be one card for a bunch of Nasty Skulkers and one for Squig Hoppers. Both are way too cool to leave them out even if their rules are not covered by the WHQ Roleplay book. I’ll have to come up with something on my own then. I started with the Squig Hoppers and finished the first half yesterday. That would be 1 + 1D3 on the Event Card later then. ...

Peasantry

I’m not really in a hurry to finish my Bretonnian Regiment of Renown as I haven’t even play tested my Dwarves yet. So today you’ll get to see only some of Bretonnia’s peasantry.
