Chaosbunker – Hobbypaints


A full 48 colours covering paint range (that will be further expanded to cover the whole Pantone Formula Guide). Because if everybody offers relabelled paint pots, why shouldn't we? And the best part - it is not even crowdfunded. Yet, every batch is hand mixed by the painting baristas, so each and every pot is unique and may vary a bit from the last one.

Adeptus Titanicus – Legio Astraman Ad Arma Pt. VIII

Among the aftermath of the Battle for Uulda I decided to stock up on some further items for Adeptus Titanicus, primarely the two Legio books for the Loyalists and Traitors.

Adeptus Titanics - Traitor Legios & Loyalist Legios Adeptus Titanics - Books

And as these are english publications, they are excluded from the fixed book prices of German publications, so I could save some bucks from ordering these online. As I have quite the extended collection of wargaming books, I think it is a very lazy design to not keep an eye on the backs of the books. The logo is wandering, the titles are as well. With a series that aims for collectors and more mature gamers (along with covering quite a few books) it is a major bummer they didn't pay attention to this. Honestly, with the pricing and all, I expect better.


The Barons War – Outremer arrived

I backed the first Barons War Kickstarter back in 2019, and last year I went for the big pledge in the Outremer campaign, their 4th Barons War crowdfunding.

There were two motivations for me to do that, the first was this would grant me a second force for my Crusade themed project and I'd finale have the chance to have a personal sculpt done, and in this case even by Paul Hicks himself.

And the miniatures arrived in two batches. The first covering my unique sculpt and some bonus content (shown further below) and the second one was my main pledge, covering the Antagonist set of miniatures and a few additional codes, that I went for.


Adeptus Titanicus – Legio Astraman Ad Arma Pt. VII

As with the last update on January 29th, the main objective was to get these battle ready (as "defined" in the White Dwarf tutorials lately), meaning something functional that would count as painted without causing me shame while gaming.

I managed to get through with the reavers early last week, leaving me with the Warlord Titan finished on wednesday. While I underestimated the smaller titans while building them (meaning glueing the armour panels to the bodies), I had a pretty good estimation on the Warlord, leaving all armour panels off until painting as well as using build groups for easier handling. I still am not a big fan of the Greedy Gold and will very likely either replace it or mix in a yellowish-brown for better coverage the next time I use this colour.

Adeptus Titanicus – Legio Astraman Ad Arma Pt. VI

The deadline is coming closer and I am in the focus zone to get a maniple of my Legio Astraman painted. That's the reason why some of the other content that is in progress, has been on hold, but more on that in the sum up of January.

So what's the status?

Battle for Uulda III is next weekend (hosted by Broncofish) and I am on the guest list among other wargamers (Poom, Lord Leonatos, The Prophet of Fire, AuxiliaryMirelurk, Hive Citizen) who I know from their projects and internet fame for quite some time but never met in person. So that is something that I look up for as well.

As arriving there with unpainted miniatures would not be an option, for several reasons, I grabbed my mood board and favourite paint pal and picked up the brush again.

Bolt Action – M26 Pershing into T26E4 Super Pershing

It's been a while since our last Bolt Action tank review. The last one we covered on here, was the Sd.Kfz. 250 combi-kit that allowed us to build multiple variants (250/1, 250/9 and 250/11) and currently in progress are the new plastic kits for the Humber AC and Sd.Kfz. 222/223. And while I already showed you the current status of my Pershing(s), I thought it would make sense to show how I got there and what the resin kit by Warlord Games is all about.

So far Warlord Games only offers a resin kit of the M26 Pershing at 33,50 GBP / 40 EUR RRP. I bought this one a while ago - when it was noticeably cheaper in 2016.


Battlefleet Gothic – Chaos Fleet Pt 3

With the miniatures set and mostly here, it is time to assemble my Chaos Fleet.

Battlefleet Gothic - MegaSonicPunch Prints

I got myself a drill and created inserts on those models, who didn't have any right away from the stl. If you're familiar with some editing programs like mesh mixer for example, you could modify your stls in a way, that they come with this right from the start. I intend to glue the flight bases to the models. If you use metal miniatures or heavier resin kits, using magnets might be an option. From my research there are multiple views on that topic, some players replace the plastic rods from their flight stands completely with brass rods.


Dino’s November 2022

Yes, the recap for December is also almost due and yet I'm only now showing you my recap for November - well, I'll try to explain....

Hobbywise, I started a lot this month, hoping to use December to reach my goal for the year. Among other things, I started the third Blood Bowl player to have at least half the Blitz Bowl team completely painted.

Bolt Action – M26 Pershing and T26E4 Super Pershing

A while ago I started converting a M26 Pershing resin tank kit by Warlord Games into a T26E4 Super Pershing.

Bolt Action - T26 Super Pershing

There are a few articles on the T26E4, among others on Tank Encyclopedia or Wikipedia, explaining what this Super Pershing is. Because it is not a paper tank like many E-series German tanks, but a real (field) conversion to further up-armour the M26 Pershing. The M26 was deployed rather late in January 1945 to Europa via the Port of Antwerp, and these 20 tanks would be the only Pershings to see combat in World War too, with the famous duel taking place later in March in Cologne. And while this heavy tank was a much-needed upgrade to the American armoured units, it made fighting Panthers and Tigers easier - compared to the Shermans, but it would still struggle against the Tiger II, while the units moved further into Germany. For that reason the M26 was uparmoured with a more powerful cannon, the T15E1. Yet a small batch of tanks were produced and further upgraded with a T15E2 gun, but only a single one of these made it to Germany in the very last moments of world war 2. I am huge fan of these rarities and field conversions, so I began building it, by using plastic card to recreate the salvaged Panther front plate on the chassis and added the "ears" and additional armour for the gun mount.


Adeptus Titanicus – Legio Astraman Ad Arma Pt. V

Legio Astraman got magnetized in my mustering post for this army project, and as Legio Astraman is heavy on the Gatlings, I had to get these for my Warlord Titan. So the Macro Gatling Blasters got magnetized to give me options towards the Belicosa Volcano Guns.

And so did I with the shoulder armament, the paired Gatling Blasters, magnetized as well. Games Workshop / Forge World did a proper job on these, as you don't need to drill and they take 5 by 1 mm round magnets.
