More Ork Barricades

One of the nice Cities of Death models released were the resin Ork Barricades. Six resin barricades (still available) that have a very Orkiness about them.

Orks are adapt at banging together large piles of debris, welding them with burnas and Gretchin for extra stickiness. In dense city-fights, cunning Ork Warbosses use these barricades to funnel enemy troops and prevent their armour from manoeuvring, before their Tankbustas launch a devastating ambush.

These are going to be part of what hopefully will be an Ork city.

Here is one of the barricades.

And here’s another…

I do like these resin models. In my opinion this is the material that should have been used for the Blastscape pack.

Imperial Shrine

One of the impressive games this year at GamesDay 2009 was the mega game which comprised a large Imperial city surrounded by a defensive wall.

The model builders had used lots and lots of Imperial Bastions and Shrine of the Aquila as well as Cities of Death sprues.

Taking photographs at GamesDay is always challenging, the number of people, lighting, hands, dice, etc… so some come out well and others don’t…. Advantage of digital for me is that I can take hundreds and use the best of them on the blog and the website.

I do quite like the idea of building an Imperial Shrine, I have always liked the Epic version which Forge World made. One day…

Cities of Death

This is from a game we had.

The scenery is a mix of Cityfight, the gothic ruins and Forge World. Mixed in there are some Forge World barricades and Warhammer 40K barbed wire.

Yes there in the middle is an unexploded Grot Bomb with probably one very confused, but very lucky grot.
