BA Blog 23rd Dec 2012, 2 Vindi's, 1 Whirlwind, 1 Baal Pred

by Cain Tiberius on Sun Dec 23, 2012 11:36 pm
Howdy folks

Ok so this last couple weeks I've gone a little tank crazy. I have four new additions for your viewing pleasure.

First up are two Vindicators. The first one was an eBay rescue. I'd already striped the paint best I could before this pic was taken. Unfortunately it didn't have any tracks, fortunately I had some IG tank tracks in my bits box (no idea why) and I was able to make them fit. I also had so of the old metal Vindicator parts. Add a couple choice pieces from eBay and some plasticard, and you have a MK1 Vindi :)

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.

E Company, 2nd Battalion, 506th PIR, 101st Airborne. 20th May 13

by Cain Tiberius on Mon May 20, 2013 10:58 pm
Hey folks.

I'll start by saying, I'm not hugely into historical modelling. I prefer Sci-Fi and at a push, Fantacy. Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy watching war movies / series and documentaries. And I have built model aircraft both WW2 and more recent over the years. But as far as table top is concerned, it never interested me.

However... After having a couple demo games that I really enjoyed, and seeing the level of interest that Bolt Action is gaining at a local gaming store... I decided to get a bit of a small force. My favourite WW2 show has always been Band of Brothers. I don't know why, but it just clicks with me. So my first set has to be the Screaming Eagles.

The set is of 21 men and includes:
An Officer, Platoon Sergeant, Radio Operator and a Medic.
10 Parratroopers including 2 Sergeants. 1 with Thompson, the other with M1 Carbine. The othe 8 have M1 Garands.
2 man .30 Cal LMG team. 2 man Bazooka team. And a 60mm Mortar with 3 crew.

On to pictures. To be noted before anyone...

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...
