Finishing up the second warband included in the Warhammer Underworlds: Nightvault box, Stormsire's Cursebreakers. In Part 1 I painted up the other warband included, Thorns of the Briar Queen. Much like the Thorns warband these miniatures are very nice looking. I also appreciate the unique bases that are included and specific for each individual model. They look great and add a nice touch...
Recently picked up the new starter set for Warhammer Underworlds, Nightvault. It's a fun little game and the miniatures from Games Workshop are top notch and really fun to paint.First up is Thorns of the Briar Queen, one of the two warbands included in the the Nightvault set. These painted pretty quickly and look great with minimal painting effort.Part two will be up soon with the other warband in the box, Stormsire's Cursebreakers...
Greetings people of Earth! It's been a few months since I put some painted models on here but now I'm back! 2018 was shaping up to be one of my most productive years ever as far as painting models was concerned (well it was back in July), then I got caught up playing games and writing batreps so the production line ceased. I played a few games of Killteam which were great craic but as my Stealers weren't painted up I didn't feel the need to report them here. I may do, but not today. Aeldari Support First up are my Aeldari. Two support weapon crewelfs, two Aeldari missile launchers and a...
Gaslands is the brain child of Mike Hutchinson. He is a gamer and modeller who started writing wargames at the tender age of 15. In Gaslands, a dystopian, post-apocalyptic future (that all good sci-fi settings should have), the year in 2018 and the Earth has been occupied by Martians for 19 years. Earth is a ghetto. All money goes to Mars. While some resent those that betray their fellows to work for a Martian corporations, many simply cannot afford ideals. Television continues under the global control of The...
Farseer Gelladrill had observed the attempted raid of Pur'la Sept on the Imperial planet of Scargill with great interest. Their motives seemed unclear but it would appear that the Tau were attempting to form a beachhead and eventually bring the planet to 'The Greater Good'. This in itself was inconsequential to Ulthwe but there were more factors to consider. Waargh Gitsmasha was closing in on Scargill and though the Tau were currently hostile to the humans on the planet a large scale force of Orks would probably result in an alliance. Despite the Tau defeat against the Scargill PDF, there was...
Welcome to Wargamer Secret Origins. We’re going to discover the origins of our hobby’s greatest heroes and villains. Which is which? That’s for you to decide … What age did you get into painting and what started it off? I started painting at 12, back in 1986. It all started with Prince August, an Irish company that sold moulds and equipment so you could cast your own miniatures. I really enjoyed cracking open a mould to see if the miniature had cast okay. What was the first model you ever bought/painted? My first ever mini was a Prince August armoured skeleton warrior I cast myself. It was...
Welcome to Wargamer Secret Origins. We’re going to discover the origins of our hobby’s greatest heroes and villains. Which is which? That’s for you to decide … I would like to begin with saying “Thank You” Adam for the invitation to write for your blog. I am happy to share my experiences and observations and it is my honour to do so. What age did you get into painting and what started it off? If you want to talk strictly about painting miniatures, then it all started with Warhammer 4th Edition in the last years of the previous century. However, prior to that I really enjoyed assembling models...
