Characters of the XVIth Legion

The recently finished Sons of Horus Terminators gave me the motivation to work a bit more on the XVIth Legion. For the last missions of the Betrayal at Calth board game I am in need of yet another Legion Veteran Sergeant. So I sat down and came up with a miniature made from no less than 7 different GW / FW kits. While chosing a name for the new Sergeant (a tradition I kept from the very beginning of this project) I thought that it would be a good idea to look back on all the named characters I painted for the Sons of Horus so far. ...

Sons of Horus Cataphractii squad

While visiting the local GW some days ago I noticed a test match of the new Shadespire game. Suddenly it came to my mind (looking at the hex-fields on the board) that I really would like to go on with Flattevieh’s and my own little campaign playing the Betrayal at Calth or better said Betrayal at Isstvan III board game. For the next mission there were only two Terminators lacking paint which stood around here readily assembled for quite some time now. So I didn’t hesitate and painted both of them. Hopefully Flattervieh’s World Eater Terminators won’t take long for him to finish. ...

Sneaky Creepers

The Crookback Creepers now have 50% of their team painted thanks to the two new additions. I am well aware that these Gutter Runners lack a lot of colour in comparison to their team mates. Yet I think it is an appropriate choice to have specialists like them look a bit different. You can still see (at least I think so) which team they belong to. ...

The Augurium

Now that my latest Space Marine project was finished (for now), I thought of a new project to get myself busy again on some power armour. Why not try a new Kill Team? So I went for the Grey Knights this time as I have never painted them before. Actually I had a soft spot for the Knights from Titan ever since yet they always had a major flaw to me. Somehow their agenda to be the first among equals (Space Marines) made them less attractive to me. But now that they are overshadowed by their huge primaris brethren they (at least to me) seemed to be cured. My first try was Brother Atravon, a ...

Jensus Natorian

Here he comes – my last Deathwatch Space Marine for our planed Deathwatch: Overkill campaign. As you might remember we played some missions of the board game earlier this year and decided to play the whole campaign as the game was lots of fun. Every player involved (excluding Rekrom who takes care of the board and most of the cultists) has to bring four painted Space Marines (including Kill Team Excis for extra fun). With Jensus Natorian the Codicier Librarian finished I am eagerly awaiting the upcoming matches. I really hope to see a good performance of the Blood Raven Psyker. ...

Blitz-blitz!

Had a couple of Blood Bowl matches during the last days and had a lot of fun again. Therefore I fancy with lots of different choices regarding my next team. Yet the Crookback Creepers (a Skaven team) are still my main priority. Three new players were finished today, check them out here. ...

Crookback Creepers

I am still enjoying raiding the Blood Bowl fields with my Dwarves yet there has to come a second team at some point. At first I tried an Orc team but with no lasting success. I noticed a bit to late that I actually would prefer a team that plays really different from my Dwarf team. Of course the Orcs are not the same but there are to many similarities. Thus I came up with something new, something sneaky and something real fast. Entering the Crookback Creepers! As a regular visitor you might have noticed that another menu point BLOOD BOWL was added here on the blog where we would like to present ...

The Quest is on

And another small project has ended, at least under the brush. With the last three Men at arms finished my Bretonnian Skirmish Warband is ready for the gaming table. Alas these finished projects are kind of a self-deception as the next step the 500 points list is long ready and the necessary miniatures were bought months ago. Not complaining though. Actually I am really looking forward painting my first Bretonnian Character. Also I am quite curious to see how they will act on the table. I expect a lot of brave deeds, well at least from the Knight. From the peasants maybe not so much, hehe. ...

For the City of Kings!

First step of the Gondor project is done and ready for the battlefield. Due to several other projects it took me quite some time to finish again as I started working on the men of Minas Tirith in October 2015. Now I am eager to test them as they are my first good LotR/Hobbit warband thus far. ...

Temple of Elemental Evil

Today’s post has nothing to do with any AD&D stuff yet I couldn’t resist chosing this catchy title. What I had in mind was that with all the enthusiasm regarding the new 8th edition of Warhammer 40.000 we could expand our gaming habits and aim for more customised scenarios. We don’t get to play very often anyway so why not invest more into the matches that we will have? With that thought in mind I browsed through some of my ideas I had since years but never managed to play out. Our gaming club is able to gather five players who all got a traitor Legion of the 41st millennium at hand. This is a great starting point ...
