Horus Heresy - further painting

by DaBoss on Sat Nov 02, 2013 5:37 pm
I'm just loving painting these new Forgeworld models.

Sons of Horus
Have given them a wash of Biel-Tan, followed by two dry brushings of Dawnstone, 2nd thin wash of Biel-Tan and another dry brush of Dawnstone - never gone to this much effort for rank & file troops!
Added the Pauldrons giving them the same washes and dry brushing, then picked out the edges with Hashut Bronze washed with Nuln Oil.
Finally finished today with painting bases Mournfang Brown.

I think I'll enjoy painting up another 35 more of these troops.

Also added some more colour to my Mechanicum, in line with how my other look

Generic Points System to use in Kings Of War Rules

by DaBoss on Fri Jun 10, 2011 11:59 am
Having played a few games at the club and practice games at home, I've come to like the simplicity of the rules and the game dynamic it produces.

No more HeroHammer or huge tomes to look through to see what the rules subsection states, and easy to get a game done in a short space of time.

Unfortunately, in there eagerness to get rules out to use their models, Alessio did a fine job but I do wonder about the costing of some of the units.

Lets take for example a Simple Regiment from the Undead and the Elves (20 strong unit with no Standard Bearer or Musician).

Skeleton Regiment (20)
Sp 5, Me 5+, De 4+, At 10, Ne 6 with Evil Dead, Shambling Horde and Phalanx rules @95pts

Elven Spearmen Regiment (20)
Sp 6, Me 4+, De 4+, At 10, Ne 6 with Elite and Phalanx rules @110pts

Some stats can be ignored as they will have no difference between the effectiveness of each unit.
So the main differences are:
1) Speed - Elves will likely get the charge...

Mantic: Kings Of War

by Baragash on Tue Mar 22, 2011 10:17 pm
So Mantic had a 15% off to celebrate Ronnie's (the owner) birthday, and I took the opportunity to buy both Kings Of War armies from Mhorgoth's Revenge to ~1,000pts (Undead at 1,015 and Dwarfs at 1,005 or 1,020 depending on if I upgrade the Crossbows to Rifles, ignoring Mhorgoth for now).

"Only available for the offer duration" items I went for:
5 Undead Zombie Sprues (3 Zombies per sprue) to make the unit from the basic set into a 30 model unit

Collectors Model - Thinking Elf

Panzerzug BP44 Train OO Scratchbuild

by Spack on Tue May 15, 2012 1:13 am
Combining my interest in WW2, and my son's model railway, I've decided to build a WW2 era German Panzerzug train that can run on OO gauge tracks. My plan is to build a running train, utilising a second hand loco chassis (still scouring ebay for one that isn't too pricey) and axles (either new or stripped from damaged wagons), along with plasticard. I could make it easy and simple and convert an existing plastic kit but that's horrendously expensive. Available HO train kits tend to be resin based and cost a fortune. Scratchbuilding the should be pretty cheap, and allows for more customisation of the wagons to include. Who knows, maybe a Leopold railway gun will be included at some point in the future :)

First problem was finding blueprints of the locomotive and carriages, after a bit of digging around I managed to track down a copy of the Waldemar Trojca Panzerzug BP42/BP44 book which contains a few...

Got a few bits of filling and painting to do around it, and it needs some blinds for the windows, then I can get some cupboards in with a gaming board on top :D
