As mentioned in the article about planing a german warband, I started assembling the plastic and metal miniatures from the matching Warlord Games boxed set. As the metal torsos all wore fur, I added those fur cloaks to all of the miniatures. Fur is quite easy to do and there are several ways to do so, among others using a press mold by Micro Art Studios. I used a sculptor tool with a sharp, pin like tip.
The latest supplement for Frostgrave was once again financed by Nickstarter, Northstar's own crowdfunding solution, and brought along with the "Forgotten Pacts" expansion a brand new box of plastic miniatures. This set of multi-part barbarians will be covered in this review.
On SuperBowl Sunday I got in my car and headed north towards the 5th Narrenball 2017 - a Blood Bowl Tournament and official NAF event.
During the ride I was greeted by a wall of fog in the Siegerland. A bit later I arrived in Remscheid, at the Rack-n-Roll Billard Cafe.
As I took care of the Rubicon Models StuG just a few days ago, I already mentioned, that I've been tinkering with that kit.
The next Bolt Action supplement, Battle of the Bulge, is just around the corner and we have a lot of winter troops around. I have a fable for captured vehicles and special vehicles, so I decided to build my winter germans around the Unternehmen Greif and one of the Kampfgruppe X-Z.
I already prepared a Panther M10, using the resin kit by Warlord Games and adding a few parts from the Rubicon plastic Panther kit.
After covering the Maus and some Sci-Fi reviews, it is time to come back to "regular" tanks, like the StuG III. I covered the Warlord / Italeri one last november, and now I want to share the counterpart by Rubicon Models.
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.
To stay with the Mechanicus topic, this review covers the Tech-Priest Dominus by Games Workshop, usable for Skitarii and Cult Mechanicus in Warhammer 40.000.
The miniature itself is available in two ways, as a single clamshell blister for 29 EUR / 22 GBP, or as part of the Start-Collecting Adeptus Mechanicus Bundle for 65 EUR / 50 GBP. The coloured print is the back cover of the blister and instruction leaflet in one.
After introducing the initial idea of Ancient SAGA with Caesar's Legion, it is time to bring some (plastic) pieces together and get it started. The basic foundation of this project are two boxes of plastic 28mm romans from Warlords Hail Caesar range.
To continue with the Triumvirate of the Imperium, the next miniature that I'll be taking care of is the Archmagos Dominus Belisarius Cawl. My take on Inquisitor Greyfax can be found here.
Games Workshop released the box last week at a price of 65 EUR / 50 GBP. As I already wrote about the box, I won't go into detail again. But I want to add a few details, that I noticed while working on this review.
Since today the Triumvirate of the Imperium is available, a combined heroes set with 5 miniatures in total, the Archmagos Dominus Belisarius Cawl, the Inquisitor Greyfax as well as St. Celestine, with her entourage of Eleanor and Genevieve.
