Eldar Blog 21st July 2013 Guardian test scheme.

by Cain Tiberius on Mon Jul 22, 2013 12:37 am
I collected eldar for a while many years ago in 3rd edition (I think). With the release of the new codex, I thought I'd start a new eldar force. The colours I've gone for are Bleached Bone (Ushabti Bone) and Hawk Turquoise (Sotek Green). As for style, I'm basing them more towards the Biel Tan.

Someone asked me to do a little tute on the bases so here it is.

Horus Heresy & Malifaux

by DaBoss on Thu Jan 02, 2014 6:18 pm
Had another good day of painting with my son.

I managed to Biel-Tan Ink Wash my Sons of Horus.

Notice: I've added the Brass etched Sons of Horus Symbols to the Spartans.
Next I need to Dry Brush them with Dawnstone to lighten the Green Wash to match the test 5 I painted last year.
Still waiting for the Sponsons for the Spartans

Then we both spent some time painting up my next crew for Malifaux (actually Bradley quite likes them but using Somer Teeth Jones)
Here is what I've got finished for Ophelia Crew:

Ophelia Master
2 Bayou Gremlins
2 Slop Haulers
4 Piglets
2 Stuffed Piglets
2 War Pigs

Bradley is painting up the other 5 Bayou Gremlins and Somer.

I think Ophelia will be on the table for tomorrows game of Malifaux 50 Soulstones.

Building 30K Sons of Horus Force

by DaBoss on Sun Dec 08, 2013 9:10 pm
So after test painting 5 Sons of Horus models and liking what I did, I jumped in and bought myself a force of Sons of Horus as my birthday present to myself.
Put the order into Forgeworld for 45 Mk III Armour, Phobos Boltguns, 10 Plasma Guns, Sons of Horus shoulder pads, 2 Apothecaries and the Loken & Abbaddon box set. As I was putting such a big order in I decided to also pick up two Spartan Tanks and the Ferrus Manus Primarch model (see these models in a later blog).

Should have enough for a 1500pts+ force, swap in 2 Plasma Guns into each 20 Man Squads and ready to use as Chaos Space Marine Force.

This weekend I started on the Tactical Space Marines, washed and cleaned up the models; started fixing them together.

Kings of War: Single Model Cost

by DaBoss on Sat Jul 02, 2011 5:59 pm
So having determined that the base cost of a model is our starting point for calculating each unit cost

Then using the following formulas:
Troop (N) Cost = N x SMC
Regiment (N) Cost = N x (SMC - 0.5)
Horde (N) Cost = N x (SMC - 0.75)

Units that start at Troop(5)
- count Half-Regiment(N) as Regiment(N) cost
- count Regiment(N) as Horde(N) cost

We get the following results: Difference in points in RED
Single Model Cost.pdf

Undead
Skeleton SMC=4.5 Troop(10) = 45, Regiment(20) = 80, Horde(40) = 150 ---- All AOK
Revenant SMC=6 Troop(10) = 60, Regiment(20) = 110, Horde(40) = 210 ---- Not so good +5/+10 increase
Zombie SMC=3.33 Troop(15) = 50, Regiment(30) = 85, Horde(60) = 155 ---- Not so good -5/-15 decrease
Ghoul SMC=4.5 Troop(10) = 45, Regiment(20) = 80, Horde(40) = 150 ----...

S.O.T.D Round 2

by Stryder on Sun Jul 28, 2013 5:56 pm
SM- "Good evening sports fans and welcome to Slam of the Day. I am, as ever, your host, Snot Motson, and, as always, I'm joined by my colleague Alan Grotson"

AG- "Good evening Snot. Well Dreadball fans we have a fantastic line up of games tonight, including what had to be the closest game in the, albeit early stages, league so far"

SM- "Thats right Alan, while their wasn't the same amount of drama, there was plenty of action. And we begin with Scrapyard Dodgers against the Bad Moons"

AG- "The Dodgers were eager to bounce back from a landslide loss at the hands of the Iron Dreads previously, and they rushed hard and fast taking the advantage of concentration the Bad Moons pushing them deep into their own half and even seriously injuring two of the sleepy Jacks out of the game"

SM- "As sports broadcasters we cannot take sides in this sport, but those dirty rotten PILES OF JUNK SHOULD BE PUNISHED"

AG- "Snot! calm down"

SM- "Ahem...anyway...
