Salute 2018 – Part 1

Salute began early for us, after the day-trip to Nottingham, we we're ready and waiting at 7 a.m. at Cambridge Station.

South London Warlords - Salute 2018

Taking the Great Northern towards London, we had some time on our hand. It takes roughly an hour and gets you to Kings Cross without a stop. Spending that time on going through our "what-to-see", "what-to-try" and "what-to-buy" lists again and playing a match of Condottiere. Perfect size for the train.

Iron giants, iron calves and hovering boats

I saw this picture on facebook, it is a K2SO toy converted by Steve Perry (Rubicon Models UK represenatitv) into a 28mm terrain piece. That would be awesome for all kinds of Sci-Fi settings, from the Ashwastes of Necromunda, over Gates of Antares to Rogue Stars.

Warhammer 40,000 STC Ryza Pattern Ruins

Along with the Necromunda Release, Games Workshop put a lot of suiting terrain on the market. As a "entry" product, with a low price barrier the STC Ryza Pattern Ruins caught my eye and were added to my terrain collection, for their generic yet very 40k like style.

Annual Review of 2017, Preview of 2018

Wow, another year passed and what a year it was. Almost 60 updates on here, available in both English and German. A busy year for me and my family, both personal and hobby-wise. A lot of things happened. I got engaged early this year, went to New Zealand for a month in late summer and got married two month ago.

So what went on on here, at, on and in the Chaosbunker. It was again very focused on reviews and Bolt Action, and I'm looking forward to open up on that in the upcoming year.

Micro Art Studios Foam Hills

The polish manufacturer Micro Art Studio offers a broad range of terrain, made from resin, mdf and foam. They even carry licensed products for systems like Wolsung or Infinity. In this review I'd like to cover generic wargaming items in form of hills, made from foam.

The pictures above are from the MAS online shop and show the large hill and a set of four flat hills. They come unpainted and are 19,68 EUR (the large hill) and 34,44 EUR (flat hills). They are slightly primed in black.

Necromunda Re-Release

Last Sunday, shortly after I finished the coverage on my visit to the Lord of the Rings Hobbiton Movie Set, the first info from Forge World Open Day trinkled in. And it was quite hot news. The first guests in the line were handed flyers covering the artwork below, announcing the rerelease of Necromunda!

Dark Imperium – Praise Father Nurgle

The new Warhammer 40,000 Set Dark Imperium was released recently and I split the box with a few people, keeping two Death Guard Plague Marines, the twenty Pox Walkers and a handful of Primaris Marines for myself. For this article, I want to keep the focus on the followers of the great father Nurgle.

The Pox Walkers have their own sprue, which is included two times in the set (basically giving you two sets of 10 each) and the body of a Death Guard Plague Marine. I went with the Plague Marine 8a and 8g.

Ad Arma Con 2017

Yesterday on May 6th was the 2017 Ad Arma Con in Speyer. This was the second time for the new event under the new name, and the fourth time in total. So after 400 km I'm back home and want to share my impression. Speyer is in the south of Rhineland Palatina, in the region of Palatina and well known for the Cathedral and the Technik museum.

Of course, no coverage without a proper parking lot picture. When the first year the lot direct to the sport centre was enough, nowadays they although cover the nearby parking lot of the soccer pitch.

Ad Arma Con 2017 Speyer

Ad Arma Con costs 5 Euros entry and covered a long list of participation and demo games, along with a bring & buy and X-Wing tournament.

Bolt Action PzKpfw VIII Maus

On friday, January 20th, Warlord Games offered a limited access to the first 35 Maus tanks for Bolt Action and Konflikt 47. I was lucky enoug to get one, as the tanks were quickly sold out. But do not despair, they will be available from mid / late february again in higher numbers.

Ordered on friday, shipped on monday and arrived on thursday in Germany. Solid timing. As the Maus is a direct sales / Mail Order exclusive, it comes in a bubblewrap bag without a box.
