Blackstone, 3D-Prints and Birthdays

Let me sum up this week. I'm currently preparing the review on Warhammer Quest Blackstone Fortress. If you pre-order it, many stores will give you posters and a poker chip as a bonus. And I already gathered a couple of miniatures for the scale comparison shots. In case you have any wishes, what I should cover within the review, just let me know and I'll try to put it into the upcoming article.

Warhammer 40.000 Kill Team Campaign Boxed Set

Similar to the Organised Play set for the Underworlds series, Games Workshop provided the new Kill Team ruleset with a similar pack - the Campaign box.

Warhammer 40.000 - Kill Team Campaign

The content of these boxes support an open instore campaign. Each player has a Kill Team card and get's stamps for each week they play a game of Kill Team.

Returning to Warhammer Underworlds

I return to Nightvault, or better said, the Warhammer Underworld series. I did an unboxing of the Organised Play 2018 boxed set for the first season Shadespire a couple of days ago. As these were re-packed for the several waves, I could only show you the alternate artwork cards for Steelheart's Champions and Garrek's Reavers. I managed to trade Spiteclaws Swarms alternate artwork cards and would like to show them to you here.

Warhammer Koblenz First Store Anniversary

Games Workshop released an article on the updates on the store anniversaries on Warhammer Community and the local Warhammer Store here in Koblenz will have their Store Anniversary party next friday on November 16th.

It is kind of interesting to have an "actual" Warhammer store around the corner. I've seen the coverage of the events in the old White Dwarfs and some of the goodies or store exclusives pop-up on bring & buys or eBay (sometimes for ridiculous prices). And as the store is right around the corner from where I work, I can drop by and pick up some of these things. Just got the posters for Blackstone Fortress a couple of days ago.

One thing to understand is the slightly "odd" choosing of the date. There is a store opening party, I've covered that one on here as well, and then 3 months after that, the birthday party is held. So, a couple of items that were already available at the store opening, but would normally available not until the actual anniversary were these two, that will be up for sale again.

BLOOD BOWL – Journey of the Maulers: Tutorial

Two more recycled Warhammer figures made it into the fan block. While I mostly repositioned parts on the other models, this time I modified one of the Orcs with a few parts that were still in my bits box. As I like to use Blackorc elbow pads on other models as shoulder armor, I still had some armored gloves left over and gave the former standard bearer a metal mitten. Although I put him in the crowd of fans, the model actually represents one of the former players, travelling with them while the team rebuilds.

Modern Combat Black Dog 1:48 Upgrades

From Czechia with ... some kind of love. To pimp the Tamiya Humvees that I bought last month, I got myself two boxes of Black Dog conversion kits. The Iraq War Accessoires Set (T48034) and IDF Uparmoured Humvee (T48058).

Black Dog Humvee Sets

I visited the black dog page a couple of times in the past, as they have some very extensive conversions and upgrade kits for world war 2 vehicles in 1:35 and 1:48. And I like to take those as ideas or inspiration to upgrade my Bolt Action (28mm / 1:56) kits. And to be honest, that was the main reason, why I spend that much money on these kits. Kinda like paying for the inspiration, as the upgrade sets are rather boldly priced with 14,50 EUR and 27 EUR for the two kits and that's without shipping.

Warhammer Underworlds Organised Play 2018

When I published the reviews on the first season of Warhammer Underworlds Shadespire and the second season Nightvault, I already mentioned that Games Workshop strongly supports the rule set with their own website, lot of content and event support. Among this content, there are organised play sets.

I've seen some people that have participated in larger events, posted their haul on facebook or gaming groups. But you do not need to participate in a Grand Clash (the large Underworlds tournaments) to be able to get your hands on some of the special material covered in the organised play sets.

BLOOD BOWL – Journey of the Maulers: Wannabes

More old Warhammer miniatures have gotten a stylish makeover and are now loyal fans of the Maulers. It is easy to see what effect the restauration of an old figure can have. I remember quite well that I didn't finish the musician's drums at the time because I felt burned out after more than twenty orcs in a row.

Inq28 – Sequitor Inquisitor conversion

This is a conversion based upon the Easy-to-Build sequitors, that I bought at the opening of the local Warhammer store.

Inq28 - Sequitor Inquisitor Inq28 - Sequitor Inquisitor

The sequitors are an incredible good deal at 3 for 12 EUR, very characterful large miniatures. The sprues are pre-coloured in a bright gold. I seperated the pieces I need, from the Sequitor prime. She even comes with two different head options, one helmeted and the other one without but a very prominent undercut.

BLOOD BOWL – Journey of the Maulers: Hammertime!

In my last article on the Maulers I introduced Bonkh and Gabru. Today's introduction is a bit shorter, but it's a short character as well, so it seemed alright.

I rummaged in my bitsbox for suitable models for Blood Bowl fans and found an old crew member of the doom diver catapult. I never had the catapult myself, but I've always loved the goblin with the hammer. At that time, I simply did not have any use for the model, no matter how much I liked it, but a small greenskin with a hammer seemed to somehow fit in with the flair of the Maulers fan block. To paint the hammer was an interesting experience, because I experimented with methods of painting wood at that time and I did the whole thing in eight quite complex steps, layer by layer.
