Konflikt 47 Allied Coyote/Guardian Light Walker

At the end of August, I've held a Konflikt 47 walker in my hands for the first time and was thus able to gain my first experiences with the Coyote kit. The walker is delivered in a box, but is effectively housed in a classic clampack.

After I freed the Mech from his package, the following picture of contents could be seen: lamps, flamethrower and heavy machine gun were included twice, a regular one once. The flamethrowers and the light machine gun are mounted on the arms. If you choose only to use the flamethrowers, the british Guardian variant of the Coyote is built.

Konflikt 47 Locust Medium Panzermech

Picking up the theme of Konflikt 47 once again. We cover today an interesting counter-part to the jump walkers of the Allied Forces, like the M2 Mudskipper, the Locust Panzermech by the Axis.

Konflikt '47 is a joint project by Warlord Games and Clockwork Goblin and is set upon an updated Bolt Action's First Edition ruleset. Some of the kits make use of the existing range of Bolt Action, add additional parts to them (like the tanks) or are complete newly designed kits, like these walkers.

Necromunda Luther Pattern Excavation Automata Ambot

Another reincarnation of the Ambull is going to be released today, after the Dread Ambull, the Necromunda gang leaders can bulk up with some big buys, the Luther Pattern Ambots.

Back in April 2018, so almost a year ago, we saw the first artwork in a teaser by Forge World. So when the miniature(s) were introduced this January on the New Year's Open Day, it was a bit of a surprise, that the Ambot would be released as a plastic kit, available at Games Workshops and independent retailers, not as a resin kit (like the bounty hunters and such) exclusive through Forge World.

The Ambot is a mechanical recreation of the Ambull, using its instincts to claw and dig through soil, as a mining robot, or in high-gothic the Luther Pattern Excavation Automata "Ambot".

Warhammer 40,000 Kill Team Starn’s Disciples

Kill Team is an incredibly successful brand for Games Workshop and the supplements keep coming. So it is time to not just look at the very interesting Kill Zones, like Sector Fronteris or Sector Mechanicus, but one of the actual Kill Teams.

With the re-release of the Genestealer Cult back in 2016, the new Kill Team Starn's Disciples is one of the boxes that really caught my eye. The Kill Teams go hand in hand with a combatant, in this case the Mechanicus warband of Theta 7 Aquisitus and the matching Kill Zone, the mentioned above Sector Fronteris using the Ryza Pattern ruins.

Warhammer 40,000 Monopoly

With the Games Workshop licensing expanding, the brand of Warhammer comes to new products and merchandise. There is clothing, video games and even funko pops, and of course some classics like board games. But when you're thinking about Warhammer and board games, you're probably thinking of Heroquest or maybe one of the newer incarnations like Warhammer Quest. So Monopoly comes as a bit of a surprise. But here it is - Monopoly Warhammer 40,000.

Winning Moves - Warhammer 40,000 Monopoly Winning Moves - Warhammer 40,000 Monopoly

Monopoly comes as a white label product for quite some time now. There are multiple localized variants of Monopoly, branding it with cities and replacing the well-known streets of Monopoly with those of the branded city. But the customizing doesn't stop there, so we now have Monopoly Game of Thrones, Walking Dead or Lord of the Rings, replacing the streets with matching places and the player figures with icons from the setting.

Blackstone Fortress – The Dreaded Ambull

The first supplement for Warhammer Quest Blackstone Fortress was released last weekend. It is called, The Dreaded Ambull, and covers a new scenario including matching upgrades and miniatures.

When Blackstone Fortress was released, it was already announced, that it wouldn't stay a single release and further supplements and additions would be released. It is once again, a blast from the past, bringing the Ambull from the Rogue Trader era of Warhammer 40,000 into today's releases. Therefore catching not only the attention as a new release, but from the "veterans" as well.

Warhammer 40.000 Killzone: Sector Fronteris

A bit unexpected a new Killzone was released, the Killzone Sector Fronteris. So far, the existing Killzones were based upon already released terrain kits and repacked them with a solid bargain. The Sector Fronteris makes use of the STC Ryza Pattern design, that were first introduced with the Realm of Battle Moon Base Klaisus and later in a smaller kit as the Ryza Pattern STC Ruins. The later I already covered in a review on here.

Warhammer 40.000 - Killzone Sector Fronteris Warhammer 40.000 - Killzone Sector Fronteris

What does STC Ryza pattern mean in this case? A STC is a standard-template-construct, that enables the Construct Machines of the Empire to produce specific objects, to a certain standard, equally and easily all over the Empire with the local ressources. These STC aren't just covering buildings like the Ryza pattern, but vehicles, like the Rhino, generators or shelters.

This kit comes at the regular price tag of 65 EUR for the Killzones. It is a bit tricky to calculate the savings on this kit, the other kits usually have a value of at least 110 EUR. Beside the last before this one, the Wall of Martyrs, where the saving dropped by quite a bit. This box covers the large frame from the Moon Base twice, but none of the smaller ones (those were moved towards the Killteams Starn's Disciples and Theta 7), so a new sprue was added to the box. But more on that below.

Warhammer 40.000 Urban Conquest

Today I'm covering the Urban Conquest supplement for the 8th Edition of Warhammer 40,000. Games Workshop is starting 2019 strong with a new campaign boxed set for their main game in the grim dark future of the 41st millenium.

Warhammer 40.000 - Urban Conquest

Urban Conquest picks up the city fight theme of its predecessor from the 3rd edition City Fight and 4th edition Cities of Death. But unlike the older supplements, this is a boxed set, covering not only the rules, but a bit of terrain and a modular campaign map.

Adeptus Titanicus – Reaver Battle Titan with Melta Cannon and Chainfist

Games Workshop starts into the new year with a new supplement for Adeptus Titanicus, Titandeath. Along the release of the book, you now have the chance to buy the weapon sprue from the Warlord Titan with Plasma Annihilator and Power Claw, and a Reaver Titan with Melta Cannon and Chainfist, that we're going to unbox today.

You'll find the reviews on the earlier released Reaver Titan with Gatling/Laser Blaster and Power Fist, Warhound Scout Titans and both Warlord Titans on my blog as well.

Bolt Action Opel Blitz & Maultier

In late 2017 Warlord Games covered the Opel Blitz / Maultier combi plastic kit for Bolt Action.

Bolt Action - Opel Blitz / Maultier Bolt Action - Opel Blitz / Maultier

The truck is one of the workhorses of the German army, transporting troops, supplies and ammunition were they were needed. The Opel Blitz is the most known of these trucks, other companies like Ford or Daimler supplied their own trucks, in some cases like the DB 701 by Daimler, it was simply the Opel Blitz without the markings built under license.

Where the Opel Blitz was build between 1937 and 1944 and made it to around 70,000 units, the half track variant of the Opel Maultier was released later in 1942/43 and around 20,000 units were built. As these trucks were the standard solution for logistics of all kind, there were multiple variants of them, converted and built for use as ambulance, communication, weapon carriage and even uparmoured ones.
