Necromunda – Bulkheads

While sorting through the miniatures and getting a feel for the volume, I realised that my actual problem aren't the miniatures (they are mostly 28mm, so that's not that tall, and I don't do mass combat armies) but the terrain. And after going through the boxes and opening up the 4th box (of a few more) with Necromunda Bulkheads in it, it dawned on me that I might went a bit overboard on them.

So my stock went above 200 of these, that's more than I need.

Dino’s Annual Summary 2020

As regular visitors of the Chaosbunker will have noticed, there have been rather few articles from my hand lately, which is why it's time to approach the year 2021 with a little more consistency and regularity. For many it is certainly no surprise when I say that 2020 was rather mediocre, but let's take a look at it together...

This was 2020

Basically, the year didn't start out bad at all. I went into my ongoing projects with a lot of motivation, wanting to both start a new gang for Frostgrave and finish the one I'd already started.

Sisters of Battle – Order of the Sacred Rose

The Sisters of Battle have come together, and I store my projects while gathering them in these sorting boxes. But this isn't a good overview, so while sorting out and taking stock, I decided to set up sheets for my projects that I can manage in photoshop and see which units go together, even after a break or being distracted by some shiny new stuff.

Warhammer 40.000 – Sisters of Battle assemble

How did the filling of the gaps go? Not bad, patience and a broad network really paid out with this one.

I was able to buy two SoBs with heavy weapons from one seller, an unbuild immolator (whoop-whoop!) and priest from another one and Martin / Zigor, a good friend of mine from the Tabletop Rhein Main (you might remember my coverage of their convention - The Multiversum) made me an offer I couldn’t refuse on a bulk lot of SoBs.

Wargaming Black Friday

Most people associate Black Friday with huge sales on electronics in the states and in the last few years it became more and more popular in Europe / Germany. I came across a special sale at Radaddel and spent about 50 EUR on the items below.

So what did I get in detail?

A miniature Odyssey – Dromeas

   Here, on the top of the fortress of Akrokorinth, Dromeas had a good view of the city. He knew the route well. Not long ago, he had run it several times a day when he had trained with his father for the Olympic Games. But now he was alone and without money to live on. All of a sudden and without warning his father had died.

   Three days ago he had finally made a decision. Dromeas had turned down the offer to work in the fields. He could not believe in the natural death of his father. But whom had his father made an enemy? Whoever it was, before Dromeas could find the guilty and bring him to justice, he had to change from being an athlete to becoming a warrior. He had sold the small house on the western foothills of Corinth and bought an old shield and helmet with his last money. The spear was still from the days when his father was a soldier himself.

   Now he sat patiently in the shade of a tree and waited to be picked up by Axon's mercenaries.

Warhammer 40.000 – Going for the Sisters of Battle

There's new about the Sisters of Battle! Because only a few days after I found my sisters I saw a lot offered in one of the boards, that would supply me with most of the things from my wishlist and even some more blisters. That could come in handy for trades, but would mean additional work as well. We managed to agree on a trade, which wouldn’t drain my monthly hobby budget and even reduce the stock (or at least wouldn’t just let my lead pile grow).

Only problem, the Immolator is too new and I was missing some of the heavy and special weapons. So to get a proper overview, I went on SoLegends and consultated the codex, to see which models and units were available and what I might be missing.

Stumbling over some Sisters of Battle

I have a fable for the 2nd Edition of Warhammer 40.000 – that’s no secret. And that is one of the projects, that I decided to keep and to put into reality during the “cleansing” of my stock.

While sorting through the lead pile, I came across my two squads of sisters of battle and looked into the according codex (1997, so quite late for the 2nd edition). It only had 64 pages and due to the limited amount of units, it was more of a side army, something you would normally use as an allied contingent for an Imperial Guard. Beside the Sisters of Battle Squads, I have a few of the ecclesiarchy models for my Inq28, so I got them together to check if that would be a lot big enough to follow up on, or too far away from completion and better be sold.

Journey of the Maulers: Vultures in the sky

The regulations for Corona are tightening again and the next Blood Bowl edition is just around the corner. Reason enough to put my foot down and give you a short summary of the pre-to-last game of the first season of the reformed team of the Maulers.

As usual, I used as many special rules as possible in this match and so it took place in a rpough and ready stadium. Our league reporter Mocky Python has remarked that the Blood Bowl games of ambitious teams in the lower leagues are not for a continuous broadcast, so you'll only see a highligtreel here.

Rough and Ready Stadium

Unclear Markings: The kicking team can move the center line one field forward or backward. Also, as many players as you like can be placed in the side zones.

Slave Ogryns Mechanics and Pit Slaves

I already talked about the possibilities of this kit in the review on the Slave Ogryn Gang for Necromunda, but now it is time to let some actions follow those words.

These are not the first ogryn sized models within the Warhammer range, and as we how quite the few bits to choose from for some kit bashing it was time to see, what would work.

Necromunda - Slave Ogryn

The most obvious kit to look into would be the Ogryns / Bullgryns kit from the regular 40k range. The heads fit the size, but need a bit of green stuff on the neck, as the connection is different. A fist from the Kastellan Robots could be interesting to mix up the augmented power fists, and with the Slave Ogryns being often pit crew or mechanic, a few tool bits from the Genestealer Cultists or similar items from the Orks (in this case the biker) a good choice as well.
