Genestealer Cult Easter Eggs!

Happy Easter! Today we cover a small easter egg with the Genestealer Cult. I got myself the Nexos, one of the characters released recently for the re-vamped army of Warhammer 40k.

Dreadball Part 3: Dreadball Kick Off Review

In early 2013, Mantic Games launched a futuristic sports game that has grown steadily since. So why are we taking a look at the very first version of the game today? Well, for one the basic game is still available online, and for another it's still a well rounded product as a game in my opinion. For people who haven't had anything to do with Dreadball yet, the game designed by Jake Thornton is also a great introduction to the science fiction setting Warpath by Mantic.

Salute-Weekend, Matildas and Knights

This weekend is Salute in London. I would have loved to be there, last year (Salute 2018 and the Operation Sealion!) was incredible fun and it would be great to see the folks again,  but with all that Brexit stuff going on, I wasn't keen on booking a flight and then having a uncertain situation (or fresh new one) at the airport. Besides that, being a dad, just staying away for the weekend for leisure is something that you want to plan and use wisely (there are a couple of weddings this year, along with stag nights and such, so I might need one or two rain checks). Oh and then there is of course Crisis this year, that I wouldn't want to miss.

Well, but what's going on in the 'bunker? You've probably seen the reviews on the 2019 model of Abaddon the Despoiler and the Chaos Gate that isn't called a Chaos Gate. Browsing through the old Chaos Codex is very dangerous. Alluring project ideas, especially for my oldhammer faible, but I'm currently involved enough with my Imperial Guard (and Eldar, wait, did I just spill the beans? Forget what you read...) and a new / additional Chaos project would just make it hard(er) to focus.

Never the less, I saw an old Abaddon in proper condition for 5 EUR and had to have it...

Chaos Space Marines Noctilith Crown

Along with the multiple releases for the updated Chaos Space Marine range, we see a new terrain piece as well - the Noctilith Crown.

"Race" specific terrain items are somewhat rare with 40k and more of a Age of Sigmar thing. Usually you fight over the ruins of Imperial cities, with the rare exceptions of the Tau Tidewall, the Aeldari Webway/Ruins and the Mekboy workshop. The Nocilith Crown looks like a gate or portal, but isn't one. This is more like a monolith of dark power, supporting the kin of the dark gods. But now we still have something like a Chaos Stargate, but as I am not sure about the copyright situation here, let's call it Chaos Gate. Does that ring a bell? Well, not without a reason.

Abaddon the Despoiler 2019

Ezekyle Abaddon has many names. He is known as the Despoiler, Warmaster of Chaos, greatest Champion of the Undivided Chaos, and Lord of the Black Legion. As such he has led multiple Black Crusades onto the Imperium and the latest attack on Vigilus. This new campaign supplement for Warhammer 40,000 is one of the reasons, why Abaddon the Despoiler received a new model in 2019, more than 20 years after the first Abaddon miniature.

Konflikt 47 Defiance Preview Pack

Although I always liked the models of the Bolt Action series and the system, I could not really get attached to the game for a while, due to it’s real historical background. However, when the Bersaglieri for Konflikt 47 appeared in June 2018, my interest was aroused. Konflikt 47 offers enough fiction to successfully bring Bolt Action into a Pulp setting without sacrificing the existing range of models. Since painted minis are an important atmosphere driver for me, I was of course interested in the quality of the models and the Defiance Preview Pack was for 7.5£ a good way to take a better look at the K47 Italians.

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.

Oldhammer – The hunt – progress update

I am quite happy to announce, that my hunt on the Oldhammer stuff, that I covered a couple of weeks before, was rather successful. Via the introduced and mentioned channels I managed to acquire some interesting kits and spare parts to build the Imperial Guard retro project around.

Warhammer 40,000 - 2nd Edition Oldhammer Warhammer 40.000 - Oldhammer Leftovers Warhammer 40.000 - Oldhammer Leftovers

With the Basilisk it was a bit tricky, as for some reason, the new kit is currently Mail Order only and thus making the used kits "more" rare. As with the Basilisk, one of the main problems are missing parts, like the fence on the rear being incomplete. I didn't care for the crew, as that was added later in the third or fourth edition and not part of the initial release in the 2nd edition. A crew that was important for me, was the one of the Griffon tank. I managed to buy the pair of soldiers, incl. the commlink back pack, and got quite some treasures with them. Yes, that are the old cardboard and necromunda bulkhead terrain pieces. And the stack on the right is vehicle accessories sprues, mostly complete. Believe me, I'm in heaven. Especially with buying older vehicle kits, often the hatches or some parts like that are missing or incomplete.
