With the drop of 8th edition the dual twin autocannon loadout for dreadnoughts has been very popular and for good reason. I've had two dreadnoughts for quite some time that came in the Assault on Black Reach set from a few editions ago. Decided to do a little cutting and scratch building to achieve the appearance of twin autocannons.First I used a hotwire cutter to remove the previous weapon loadout on both arms. Using some round sprue from Malifuax models and a bit of brass tube and we're done...
This model is one of the best sculpts that Privateer Press has ever produced. I've wanted one for years but the model's rules in MK2 were pretty terrible. However, it's MK3 rules are pretty solid so I finally picked one up.I've since stalled on this project, regrettably I've been pulled away to other projects. Hoping to get back to it soon to finish. ...
So largely in part to Tyler's generosity at Summer Slaughter and the kind votes I received for best painted army, I'm in the unique position to plan out an army. In the past I've kinda just bought stuff on a whim in order to accomplish a particular goal or fill in a gap in my Dark Eldar or World Eater armies. Oh, and if a model looked cool it'd become an acquisition. The result over many many years is pleasing to me but since I have two playable armies this new project will be a bit more focused. Here's the plan: I'm gonna create a traitor guard army (with CSM auxillary). I have a story kind...
Ever since I started my Legion army a few years back I've often thought of building an ice table complete with terrain, zones, and flags to match my ice based Legion army. Well, I finally got around to doing and I'm really pleased with the way it turned out.The base of the board is just foam insulation board that I purchased at Lowes. You can pick these up in 2' x 8' or 4' x 8' sheets. I cut a 2' x 8' sheet in half to make my 4' x 4' playing surface.First steps involved creating some texture on the board. I started with a small tub of spackle and applied it unevenly to form some raised areas...
With the latest edition of 40k dropping recently I've been taking a break from Warmachine to play some 40k. However, most of my terrain is geared towards WM games and just doesn't lend itself well to games of 40k. So, I've been building a lot of terrain for 40k use in an effort to be able to nicely fill a 4x6 table. Just using black foamcore mostly and a hot glue gun here but the results look pretty decent. I did texture some areas using snow flock. A little bit of flat black and some highlighting with gray primer and its mostly done. I'll still spend a little more time on these doing some...
Commander Farg Woolstrop was uneasy, he had received orders to advance and engage all armed forces within the grassy plains of the agri world Hemmerdale as a suspected enemy invasion was thought to be imminent. Advancing in good order using flanking fast attack vehicles with his support assets to the fore he felt confident his detachment would prove a deterent to any would be aggressors. Suddenly a force of Adeptus Sorritas emerged out of the gloom and engaged his command and he was forced to return fire...... Last week I went round to Stuart's...
