Frostgrave: Zombies

Since I intend to play a necromancer in Frostgrave, I might need some zombies sooner or later, which will be awakened by the master and his apprentice. As luck would have it, Chaosbunker boss Dennis had a few Mantic Games zombies left over and I always wanted to see what you could get out of these minis with some simple methods.

Lords of WarCry – Da Redfists, Part 5

It is possible to make an Orruk with two bashas from the sprue of the Ardboys. I must confess, the clubs have such a wonderfully dull and brutal appearance that I really wanted to have an orruk with two of them. I also like the look of the faces of the Ironjaw Brutes and I think that an army always looks like it belongs together when it has a common recognition value like the facial features and heads.

Jams, Titans and Vessels

Radaddel celebrate 25 years of tabletop in their store, and even added a delicious jam to your orders during the celebration. I know Matthias for more than 10 years now and that jam thing caught me, so I ordered two boxes of Adeptus Titanicus and got strawberry jam on top of it. Yay!

Why Reaver and Warhounds? Well, I had a blast reviewing both kits last december during the Titan themed week, the regular Reaver is a fine kit, but the "evil" one with Melta Cannon and Chainfist is really great. Originally I had planned on buying the battlegroup, but that one is currently not available through my resellers (I'm simply not paying retail on a box with that price tag), I went with the Warhounds that they had on sale with 25% during the celebration and added the Reaver to it.

Lords of WarCry – Da Redfists, Part 4

The nice thing about building up a warband is that you have the opportunity to try something new every now and then. With the fourth member of the Redfists I implemented something that I always wanted to try out: I painted Vorlug in a half-sided pattern. Depending on which side you look at the model from, it looks as if it has either a predominantly red armor or a predominantly black one.

Look up to the Sky, look at the Horizon

I just did the Cruel Seas unboxing and review and Warlord Games introduced the next naval wargame, Black Seas. Similar to how Cruel Seas ties in with Bolt Action, Black Seas will tie in with Black Powder, focussing on the naval battles between 1770 to 1830.

Lords of WarCry – Da Redfists, Part 3

The younger plastic Ardboys have the tendency to have very large surfaces of armor, which can lead to the Space Marine effect. The Space Marine effect? This is the kind of boredom you get when you paint the same color on large areas for a long time. Although the new Ardboys also have many smaller details, such as pelts or protruding leather shreds, the armour retains its somewhat bare plate look. So it takes some time to get to the point where you add a little more variety to them, such as a flame pattern, a few glyphs, spikes and the like.

Izgrod

A big mouth and the choppas to back him up, that`s Izgrod. He`s been with the Redfists for a while now and has seen numerous battles. Time has made him posey and the other Redfists rather dislike him for that. Usually Gotmork would`ve just killed the lesser disciplined Orruks, though at the moment Izgrod is too valuable to do so. But as the Redfists numbers will start to grow, his position, and his life, might not be that safe in the future...

Green is the new olive drab

Hello everybody and welcome! After Dennis had a look at the frames of the G.I.s from Warlord Games in his review, I'll say a few words about painting these guys today.

Lords of WarCry – Untamed Beasts, Part 1

Dull drumbeats roar across Jagged Savannah of Ghur, calling the barbarian nomads to arms. Wild warcries mingle with the animalistic roar of the great beasts and are barely distinguishable. It's time to go and prove to Archaon the Everchosen as relentless enough to join his legions.

I've got into WarCry, too. I have been skeptical at first, but I could quickly learn a better one at my local dealer with a look in the new box (and in the rule book). The joint project "Lords of WarCry" here at Chaosbunker offers a nice opportunity to document the assembly and the painting of the really extensive box. Since Dennis will be the first to have a go at the buildings and Dino takes on his Orruks warband, I start with the Untamed Beasts warband.

Naval and nostalgic wargames

To continue the preparation of more Oldhammer, it is time to strip some plastic. I showed you the Rhino the last time, as well as some stripping of metal parts. Now we move on to the next level of complexity, larger kits and more fragile materials. Get a properly sized container and get on to it. I'll keep you posted in the next Rhino and Oldhammer posts.

Lords of WarCry – Da Redfists, Part 2

Each Ardboy has its own name (even on the underside of the base) and individual character, but all have the same style of paint scheme. I often paint according to certain "recipes", in order to not forget how I did it and to get a homogenous look. With ordinary orcs I wouldn't mind, but Ardboys have a certain talent for discipline and order (in greenskin measures). So I had to be able to create the same colors on more than one model.

For the first two Ardboys I used old blackorcs made of pewter. Although I am not a friend of metal miniatures, these were better for practicing than the new plastic models. The surfaces are clearly divided into chain mail, skin, plates, fabric, belts and teeth.

Morog

A shield wall is a good method to delve deep into the turmoil of battle and the Redfists have almost perfected this method. The shield-bearers push themselves slowly forward in an indicated v-shape, only to suddenly stop, while the boys with the big axes jump over them.
