We’ve been adding about 10 yards of tarmac and loads of ruinous buildings to our city. Some impressions:

I keep wishing I could be as industrious as some guys out there. Check out this blog for instance – scratchbuilding 6mm minis:

Small Distractions





…time flies…

…and a lot has happened, I just didn’t find the time to take pictures and process them into something presentable. As soon as I can, there’ll be pics of the new Guard Regiment WIP for Epic40k and ruinous terrain pieces, in the meantime this:

Someone at epic-battles.de posted this link, for all their knobblyness quite nice minis.





Photoshopping

A bit of afternoon boredom relieved with Photoshop.





Battle: Orks vs. Iron Fists Astartes

19 10 2008

After a long gaming break a short but intense battle: 2500pts each of Astartes trying to cleanse part of an Imperial city of two Ork klans.

Backed by Whirlwind missile and Devastator fire support, the two companies (RED; 1st Veteran, 2nd Battle) charged ahead to secure the forward objectives. The Assault Marines on the left flank and the Veterans covering objective 3 on the right flank took heavy fire from the Bad Moonz holed up in ruins and Goff Nobz on the other side (GREEN). The Mekboy Gargant lumbered forward, its kustom kannon whirring to life – and blowing off the arm in an explosive misfire, starting a fire, spreading a frenzied panic and more explosions inside. The gargant belched a puff of black smoke once, then blew apart. Meanwhile, the Battle Fortress paving its way was destroyed by repeated Land Raider fire, and a hush fell over the Ork horde as the Marines cheered and raised a battle cry signalling the charge that took them right into the enemy (round 2). Two Veteran detachments and the Terminators managed to break the Goff klan into flight while the units on the far side could only overcome the Weirdboy Tower shielded by a dragster by a close assault. Still backed by Devastator and Land Raider support, the Iron Fists mopped up the last resisting units before the Orks ran to fight another day.
Win for the Space Marines by VPs.





Rubble Tiles

19 10 2008

Finally, winter is coming on and with it time at the worktable.
We always thought that the gaming table about round 2 or 3 was looking far too pristine for all the carnage and destruction wrought. I modelled and cast the first rubble tile a while ago, here it is in painted state. Also lined up is one with a gutted Imperial tank, a couple with dead infantry, maybe a downed aircraft.

A purely aesthetic piece, although they could be used to give infantry the cover bonus they should have hiding behind destroyed tanks. Alternatively, they might be used as objectives.





Just in case you’re wondering….

…why nothing seems to be happening here recently:
I’m occupied with other projects at the time but I’ve quite some stuff lined up to be cast, painted, and destroyed in 40th millennium warfare!

Keep coming back!
