Of Kings, Knights and Halloween on the Black Seas

It is the Halloween weekend and I thought that I had seen a horror-scenario for Black Seas, but I am unable to find it. Anyhow, there is Dreadfleet, of which I used the battle mat from the boxed set already with Cruel Seas.

Dreadfleet was a bit of a surprise back in 2011, when it was released as a stand-alone boxed-set. The rumours lead many to believe, that we would see a re-release of 1993's Man-o-War.

Printed Terrain, Age of Sails and Legos

A package arrived with a couple of 6mm Adeptus Titanicus terrain, that was 3d printed in grey PLA. After I had a few ruins printed for base decoration, I found further files on thingiverse and Florian was kind enough to put them on his Ender.

Warhammer Underworlds: Beastgrave Primal Lair

In Nightvault Games Workshop introduced for the first time terrain accessories with the Arcane Hazards for the Underworlds series, and in Beastgrave we see that idea continued with the Primal Lair.

The Primal Lair is a set of six terrain pieces, to cover hexes on your Underworlds gameboard or to use on a regular tabletop wargame battlefield. It is kept in the design of stalagmites in hex-shape, along with bones and multiple things we've seen in the caverns.

Aeronautica Imperialis – Imperial and Ork Ground Assets

The release of Aeronautica Imperialis was much broader, compared to other product lines introduced by Games Workshop. Among the individual kits is one for terrain, the Imperial and Ork Ground Assets.

The flat box costs 32,50 EUR and covers a single large plastic sprue, along with a simple assembly instruction. Unlike other terrain sets, this doesn't come with a Warscroll for use. Those are covered in the Rynn's campaign supplement.

Warcry Ravaged Lands – Shattered Stormvault

With Warcry filling in the fantasy counter-part of Kill Team, Games Workshop supplies the game with their variant of the Killzones called Ravaged Lands. We have covered a couple of those Killzones already on the blog, for example Killzone: Sector Mechanicus and Killzone: Sector Fronteris. And today we cover the first of the Ravaged Lands, the Shattered Stormvault.

Warhammer Age of Sigmar – Sigmarite Dais

Terrain is an important part of any game, and I am always keen to see, what interesting pieces can be added to a gamers collection. The Dominion of Sigmar was introduced earlier this year, as fantasy counterpart to the very well done Sectors already available for Warhammer 40,000. Among those temples and shrines in the name of Sigmar is a round plateau, the Sigmarite Dais, which we are going to take a closer look upon today.

This kit belongs to the Dominion of Sigmar, that covers multiple sets of a similar theme, among them a larger set, the Enduring Stormvault, and an "entry level" piece, the Shattered Temple. Along with the Ravaged Lands for Warcry, we see the Shattered Stormvault as well, a terrain set, that will hopefully be covered in a couple of days here as well.

Warhammer Age of Sigmar – Azyrite Townscape

To be added to the Warcry terrain, I got myself the Azyrite Townscape. I had my eyes on the kit for a while now, as it is generic set of ruins and as such can be used for multiple setups.

The Azyrite Townscape is part of the Dominion of Sigmar terrain range and accompanied by two other sets, a smaller one Azyrite Ruins and a larger boxed set Realm of Battle Blasted Hallowheart. The name azyrite comes from Azyr, the celestial realm in the new Age of Sigmar.

Warhammer Age of Sigmar WarCry – Part 2

As promised we continue the review on Warcry today, after we've talked about the Warbands and other miniatures yesterday, the second part will focus on the terrain and gaming board you will fight your matches on.

Included with Warcry as part of the terrain is a 22" by 30" folding game plan. It is printed on both sides, but more on that further below. At first I was a bit irritated, as it is rather large, but it just folds one time less than the Kill Zone boards, as you can see in the comparison picture.

Warcry picks up on the folding game boards, that were introduced with Kill Team. If you remember the "buzz" on the size of them when they were released, that they were not orientating on the 4' by 4' or 4' by 6', but 22" by 30". Why is that? Well, that is size that is more appliable in gaming stores, taking up less space and making it possible for more participants to play on the same or smaller amount of tables. It roughly orientates on the dimensions of trading card games while using mats and such.

Terrain, Travel and Birthdays!

I am currently working on a couple of terrain pieces, that will follow my Warcry review. Among them is the Sigmarite Dais and the Azyrite Townscape, that will go great with the terrain from the Warcry starter kit.

I started with the Sigmarite Dais, a round temple base, that I primed black and gave a coat of grey paint. I added details and several coats of drybrush, beginning with AP Uniform Grey, Skeleton Bone and Weapon Bronce for the metal parts, that got washed with Badab Black.
