Board Games - Mantic Dwarf King's Hold

by Baragash on Sat Apr 09, 2011 5:55 pm
So assembling Dwarf King's Hold is part of my Q2 Hobby Challenge

Just finished the 12 Skeletons for the game as well. There's also a Pit of Souls (used in the game) and a Pile of Bones (you get counters for these, but if you had enough Mantic skellies, as I do with a 1k army, you could use "actual" piles), and a Skeleton Rat (used in Kings of War).


They were nice models to put together:
- mould lines have been run along the edges of fabric etc, so that basically means there aren't that many to clean up
- unlike GW skellies that attach on the spine, Mantic skellies lock over each other (about half...

Angron Model for Horus Heresy

by DaBoss on Wed Sep 28, 2011 3:29 pm
Finally found a model that I liked the look of and was the right size.

Scibor Miniatures - 28mm Chaos Master

He actual stands more like twice the height of a Space Marine.
Perfect as a Pre-Daemon Angron just after Istvaan Massacre when he is starting to devote himself and the Worldeaters to Khorne.

Have added some wire to represent the psycho-surgery and put a number of Khorne brass symbols from forgeworld to replace some of the chaos icons; also changed the Mace end for an Axe (more khorne like).

Now to spray him up...more to come

Welcome to my blog here. I hope to have it cover my SPACE:1959 project in one place.

This has been ongoing for over a year now, but with interuptions like moving etc it has progressed in fits and starts.

Firstly my latest additions:

Building is directly lifted from the wonderful Matakishi's site. http://www.matakishi.com/afghancompoundbuild.htm

I have borrowed his Afghan compounds to use for villagers living near the Fire Zone on Venus. It is currently unpained as I intend to make several more of them and then batch paint them.

The base is 300mm square MDF, and the Orks on the roof for scaling are GW ones.

Also in the shot are 2 of my wip vehicles, a Saladin APC and a M113.

On the roof is also a BAOV Dragon Team and the Brig overseeing the building with the thought of using it for his new HQ.

Mantic: Dwarf King's Hold

by Baragash on Thu Jun 09, 2011 7:43 pm
So the second game in the series has been available for pre-sale at some online retailers for a few weeks, but as I want to support Mantic directly for the moment I waited for it to go up on their site... and it has, so I pre-ordered it :D

Diary of a slackman

by jonthebetrayer on Wed Aug 17, 2011 10:17 pm
Its been about 6 months since I put brush to paint to model. On the gaming side though i have had a fair few games of 40k of which i have lost a few (a few actually all of them) My beloved Worldeaters army seems to be failing me :roll: or it could be a lack of tactics and general stupidity.
To break me out of the painters block I have decided that I have had enough of red paint, therefore have chose to paint up a different army. Warriors of chaos seemed to be the best idea as the people I play against had everything but. Epic win.

I rushed out and bought a box of marauders and on the journey home I was thinking what a waste of money that was, they will only stay in the box and stay there until my son moves out and I sell them on. Got home and promptly glued them together, and painted and painted and painted. Damn it felt good.
Warriors of chaos army so far...
