Starting a Genestealer Cult

I'm quite amazed by the recent release of the Genestealer Cult. Games Workshop seems to do a lot of interesting and well meant things currently. Horus Heresy in plastic, first look at Adeptus Custodes in plastic as well, and then these Rogue Trader flashback in form of the genestealer cult.

I was already hooked when they released Deathwatch Overkill, and I managed to acquire the part of the genestealer cult for a small dime.

Winter der Toten / Dead of Winter

It is a cooperative survival boardgame in a colony, in the icy grip of winter. So you have to fight dropping moral, food scarcity and threats from the outside. And that is hadled by 2-5 players for the group and themselves.

The next area - very large and impressive - is a whole airport. And they invested a lot of time for details. As a proper airport, it had a display on landing and departing flights, and even a special visitor from far away.

Miniatur Wunderland Hamburg 2016 Part 1

Making the most out of the long tour into northern Germany, we combined a visit to theĀ Miniatur Wunderland in Hamburg to Stahl auf der Heide. It is the largest model railway attraction in the world, in the heart of the Speicherstadt.

Where to start? The red brick buildings of the Speicherstadt are unmistakably, and with large golden letters the Miniatur Wunderland (miniature wonderland) can be seen from afar.

Stahl auf der Heide 2016 – Part 2

After the first presentation, the armoured vehicles were lined up back in starting position.

Being so close to a tank, able to take a look or to touch them, appealed to a lot of people. So the big cats were crowded.
