Another excellent issue of Warmaster magazine. lots of scenarios and lots on dragons.
The contents includes:
The Idol of Gork – a campaign based on the Warhammer Fantasy Battle campaign pack of the same name.
The Road to Nottingham – a Chaos General’s tale of the Warmaster tournament.
Card Terrain – not making terrain, but using a card system to generate terrain for the tabletop.
Albion Battle Report – says it all really…
The Battle of Pont A’Leiss Enms – rules for the Emperor Dragon
Alas it is the last ever issue of Warmaster Magazine, it will be “replaced” by Fanatic Magazine which will cover all the Specialist Games.
Warmaster on the website.
An excellent small web article on how to create an epic scale model of this Chaos vehicle…
Was referred to this website from a posting on the official Epic Forums, and I was very impressed with this excellent little conversion of the Chaos Defiler.
The vehicle is made from components available as bitz from GW US Mail Order and includes Man O War and Chaos Land Raider bitz.
You can find out how it was built and what components were used at Audrey’s Conversion Corner.
See how it was done.
Still quite a way to go…
Having only really done the flesh on the Inquisitor it looks like it may be some time before he ventures out onto the battlefield.
I am still not sure what colour his armour should be and should I stick with red for his cloak, I will have to decide soon I guess.
As I was painting other stuff, the Grey Knights Land Speeder got delayed somewhat.
All I have really done is paint some more of the bodywork, the legs and some more instrumentation.
It’s finally out and you can buy it…
Epic Armageddon, the latest version of Games Workshop Epic (6mm) scale game, is now out to purchase.
So do I have copy, well not yet…
I am hoping that my local GW store will have a few copies for sale so I can pick up a copy there.
I have finished the base on one of my Killa Kans and with a virtually done paintjob it is ready to play a game with.
The base is done with a few bits of gravel from the garden, GW sand and then painted Codex Grey before being drybrushed with lighter shades of grey and then white.
The main body of the Killa Kan is black, drybrushed with Tin Bitz and Boltgun Metal.
I still have to do some of the detailing but I am quite happy with it at the moment.
I am not sure whether I should paint the missiles yet and what colour!
You find more information on the Killa Kan on the workbench section of the iFelix website.
I tried something else…
Well after much thinking, I decided to stick with the orange, but this time lay it on thick!
It has covered better and now looks like battered panels and the paint has cracked and flaked off.
I need to do some highlighting and some more weathering, but I am now more pleased with this than the previous attempt!
it is somewhat bright, but I may vary the share across different panels.
You find the previous history of my Ork Fighter Bommer on the workbench section of the iFelix website.
In my garage (as I suspect is the case with many gamers) is a load of old gaming stuff. Much of the good quality stuff has been sold on eBay, however in a box is one of my first terrain experiments for 6mm games.
I was once inspired by an article from Miniature Wargames issue #13 in which a gamer had described how he created some superb WWII terrain tiles. Taking his cue, and using 10mm cork tiles I created a series of 6mm terrain tiles with hills, hedges and roads.
Incorporating cork bark, some of the hills had rocky features. The “grass” was flocked and then painted (to keep it in place) and then drybrushed.
It worked well except for one major flaw!
Some of the cork tiles warped making it very unuseable. Eventually they were replaced with commercial flocked tiles.
The orange has not worked…
Despite two coats the Citadel Orange paint is not covering the brown undercoat at all well…
Not sure what to do now, I may have to go for a different colour entirely and my dream of an orange Ork Bommer is fading fast…
More of the model painted… Managed to get in some painting time (the majority was spent on a secret project) however I did manage to get some more of my Grey Knights Land Speeder painted.
You can see I have painted more of the bodywork (in Boltgun Metal) and painted the Imperial Eagle in Burnished Gold with highlights. The Inquisitor Book has also had the edges painted in Burnished Gold.
The underneath has been drybrushed with Boltgun Metal and I may do some weathering on the engines later.
Though the crew legs still need painting, I have painted the instrument panel.
This final shot shows how the model is coming together… still need to paint the crew!
