Necromunda – Outland Beastmaster with Ripperjacks

The addition of Beastmasters to the new edition of Necromunda was announced with the Book of the Outlands earlier this year, and in mid of December we got actual pictures and not just artwork for these units. The first to come is the Outland Beastmaster with Ripperjacks.

This is not the first time for "animals" to support an Underhive gang, there are for example the Escher Phyrr Cats and Goliath Sumpkroc already available. As this is an addition to the core range, the product is distributed by Forge World and casted in resin and not with injection mould plastic. For that reason you will need super glue for the assembly and it is recommended to wash off the parts in luke warm soap water to remove any release agent, that might still be stuck to the parts.

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.

Necromunda – Ash Waste Nomads Dustbacks and Wy’tari Stormcaller

We're closing the Ash Waste reviews series after the Cargo 8 Ridgehauler last month and Ironhead Prospectors earlier this week (breaking the 300 review barrier by the way! Yay!). And today we're looking at the Ash Waste Nomads, primarely the Wy'tari Stormcaller.

Necromunda - Ash Waste Nomads Dustbacks and Wy’tari Stormcallers

Games Workshop sent the the Stormcaller kit by Forge World and I traded one of the Prospector sprue against one of the Dustback Helamites to add a bit of more content to this review. That's why I'm only showing the sprue and not the box set or instructions, but it should work either way.

Horus Heresy – Liber Hereticus

The second supplement for the new Horus Heresy covers the Traitor Legions and is called Liber Hereticus, and provides the same information as the Liber Astartes does for the loyal legion for those who follow the Warmaster Horus.

Each of the legion books is 55 EURs and more than 300 pages thick. They are produced as full coloured hard cover, with thick paper and even a cloth bookmark. And this review on the Liber Heretics is going to give you a similar deep dive, as we did earlier on the Liber Astartes.

Journey of the Maulers: Meet the Champions

It's finally here, the last game of Mork's Maulers under the 2016 rules also marks the end of the season and what could be more fitting than a game against a legendary team? Games Workshop has made the list of Gouged Eyes from their championship year available for download, and since I already own a painted Gouged Eyes team from third edition (that hasn't seen a gaming table in a while), it fits like a glove that the Maulers play out their true trial against the champion.Blood Bowl - Bob Bidford & Jim Johnson

Horus Heresy – Liber Astartes

In addition with the update Horus Heresy rule set (currently not available on its own, just as part of the Age of Darkness set) Games Workshop released two large supplements, covering the army lists for the loyalist and traitor Space Marine Legions.

Horus Heresy - Liber Astartes Horus Heresy - Liber Astartes

Each book is 55 EURs and more than 300 pages thick. Manufactured as a hard cover in full colour, with thick paper and even a cloth bookmark. We're going to look into these separately, beginning with the Liber Astartes. The book for the Space Marine Legions loyal to the Emperor.

Horus Heresy – An Introduction

Games Workshop has introduced as massive new release and addition to their core range with the Horus Heresy 2.0. As this makes the war among brothers in the Imperium broader accessible (being carried by Games Workshop and their trade network, plastic instead of resin and translated content), it will be the first contact with the prequel to the Grim Dark of 40,000 for many wargamers. A good reason to give you an introduction on the Horus Heresy.

Warhammer - The Horus Heresy

What is it about?

The universe that provides the background for one of the most popular wargaming systems on the globe, has a dark and incredibly rich history. How became the Space Marine chapters of 40k the many different forces, with successors chapters in all their colourful variety? Where did the Chaos Space Marines come from? All this lies in the civil war within the Empire, when Horus, one of the 18 sons of the Emperor himself, turned against him and half of his brothers followed the Warmaster in his betrayal to bring death to the usurper.

Adeptus Titanicus – Dire Wolf Heavy Scout Titan

In January Games Workshop announced a new titan for Adeptus Titanicus - the Dire Wolf Heavy Scout Titan. After about 4 months the kit is available via Forge World and today, we have the chance to see it in our review.

The Dire Wolf is a variation of the Warhound Titan and available in two variants, one with a Neutron-Laser and one with a Volcano Cannon.

Adeptus Titanicus – Mechanicum Cerastus Knight Atrapos

A second type of Mechanicum Knights can be found among the Cerastus Class, the Cerastus Knight Atrapos. Adding not only a new option for the Mechanicum in Adeptus Titanicus next to the Questoris Styrix and Magaera, but adding a fourth class of Cerastus after the Lancer, Acheron and Castigator.

Adeptus Titanicus - Mechanicus Cerastus Knight Atrapos

As you can see from the box, this is a Forge World release and this comes with a few differences compared the "regular" Adeptus Titanicus range. Major point is, that these are only available directly through Forge World, so you have to order them either at Forge World directly or at a Games Workshop events (and at Warhammer World). With Games Workshop and Forge World still adapting to the current situation, it may take a while for these kits to be delivered and they may be out of stock from time to time. But Forge World is customer orientated, so shipping towards Europe is 12 EUR flat and free if you order for more than 90 EUR, and a really convenient service is that their orders are shipped DDP (delivery duty paid, so you don't have to pay customs or service charges). At a price of 50 EUR for the pair of Cerastus Knight Atrapos you're already half way there for free shipping. Another difference with these compared to other kits from the Adeptus Titanicus range, the Atrapos are cast from resin and not injection mould plastic or finecast. But more on that further below.

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.
