Night Lords Apothecarii

Apothecarii. Destined to roam the battlefield in search of their fallen brothers. For me, after the new FAQ they got even better since they can join my Terror Squads and now can also be equipped with a jumppack to be used together with my Night Raptors or Assault Squads. So, what are your uses for Apothercariis? Are you using them and for what? Til next time. ...

Four Year Anniversary

Another year has passed and it is now four years ago since the Aleatorblog opened its  gates with its first post. We’re basically still doing what we used to do back then yet we don’t get to see each other that often anymore. But most of us are still working like crazy behind our hobby desks to get these little plastic men ready for tabletop warfare. So we figured it could be fun to take a closer look at our starting point and the climax of our own brush history. What were the Aleatores’ first miniatures, what are their ...

Regarding Slayers

Regarding Dwarf Slayers Games Workshop has had a long tradition of coming up with several sculpts. I started out with the era of the Slayersculpts around the time of the 2nd Blood Bowl edition and their brethren in Warhammer accompanied us for quite a long time. Then there came only two new sculpts for Mordheim which had slightly downscaled facial features and smaller hands. Then there came only one plastic Slayer which was the first sculpt I didn’t like that much. And now as the Age of Sigmar and the Fyreslayers are upon us I doubt that we’ll get to see improved new plastic Slayers from GW. So what can a Dwarf do if he intends to include ...

More “volunteers” for the Dawi Zharr

The first matches of Border Princes Skirmish are over now and were real fun actually. So it doesn’t come as a surprise that yet another team of Chaos Dwarves is due. Therefore Nagrot’zarr is in need of more Hobgoblin support. As I will need a full unit of them for our 500 points plans anyway I finished them all at once. But maybe a full Hobgoblin skirmish team would be a good idea aswell? ...

Acastus Knight Porphyrion – House Makabius

Pride of Makabius – Acastus Knight Porphyrion – of Arbalester Reinhold Makabius Finally it is done! I finished this beast. The Acastus Knight Porphyrion certainly is among the biggest kits I have painted so far. It was a real pleasure finishing him and he really looks good next to the rest of House Makabius. It is amazing if you keep in mind that he was intended to be an upgrade kit for the regular Knight kit but now is the almost the size of a Warhound Titan. ...

Cheer up!

Cheer up! The dwarf women are here to entertain the crowd. This is in fact not the first dwarf woman which made it to the blog but the first dwarven cheerleader. The new season is continuing to be very succesful for the Barak Varr Bowlers. The last game against a Nurgle team was won 1:0 again without any casualties or serious injuries on dwarven side. Unfortunately I can’t show you pictures of the game as the miniatures were not fully painted / based. Anyway the Barak Varr Bowlers got plenty of new cash to spend for the Playoffs. This is definitely a good thing as it gives me motivation to paint new stuff. I picked up ...

Captain of Minas Tirith

My tiny Gondor project was still lacking a hero. I thought it would be a cool idea to have the leader of my patrol from Minas Tirith sitting on a horse. Unfortunately the only mounted models I like such as Boromir f.e. were all way to expansive for such a small project. Thus I had to come up with a little conversion. Carving my way through the metal of the miniature was a tough job though. ...
