Realm of Chaos – Herdstone part I

In context of my beastmen warband I have mentioned Paul Sawyer's participation in The Tale of Four Gamers, with his chaos beastmen army. And one of the things that really caught my eye in that series, was the herdstone he build for his army (covered in the White Dwarf #221 and #222).

The Hobbit – Lake Town Kitbash Part 1

Keith Robertson did a great kit bash of the Lake Town kit, that was shown a few years back on Warhammer Community.

He combined two of the The Hobbit - Lake Town kits and converted them into something, that was heavily inspired by Bard's house. I really like what he has done and would like to recreate it. Unfortunately, the only pictures we have to do so, are these, giving a proper idea but especially the converted parts as the part below the upper walkways and modified wall section is only partly seen. So let us try to reverse engineer this.

The Hobbit – Lake Town House

We started into 2020 with a few articles on Middle Earth terrain, beginning with the Rohan House, and due to the positiv feedback on the overall coverage, I've decided to extend the series and take a look at the Lake Town House as well.

The Lake Town house is a plastic terrain kit in 28mm scale and as such worth a look, not just for players of the Middle Earth games but far beyond. So let's see what is in the box.

Gaslands – Roadblocks

To make my future Gaslands table more interesting, I have set out to create a few stylish terrain pieces in a Wasteland style. Originally I wanted to make the track boundaries more visible, as well as corners and obstacles.

Gaslands – New week, new wreck

My latest terrain piece, made from a recycled Nissan Titanium, is finished and I had so much fun with it that I decided to do another piece in the same style right away. This time I won't take a hotwheel apart though. In fact, a recently purchased monster truck was already accompanied by a wreck that has no other purpose than to drive over it.

As you can see I added a few small details to cover a some holes that are actually connectors for other wrecks. To the hole in the front I glued a few rods to make it look like a rudimentary radiator grill.

Troublemaker Games Terrain Sets

Troublemaker Games was kind enough to sent me a few samples from their range of plastic terrain sets.

Who are Troublemaker Games? They are a small wargaming studio offering multiple products, among them nuns with Guns and artillery pieces in 28mm. But that is not all, they hosted a few Kickstarter and Indiegogo campaigns to finance the 6mm terrain range, we'll take a look into today. The range is available through Vanguard Miniatures, who carry further small scale miniature and items.

Gaslands – Pretty broken

On with my first off-road piece for Gaslands. When I disassembled the car, I discovered a little surprise - the Nissan Titan actually did have a music system modelled inside. Although I knew that it would not be seen, I could not resist the temptation to paint it. If I discover such a small addition in one of the Hotwheel cars again, I will probably cut it out and install it somewhere visible on another car.

With the seats, I knew that you could see them through the lowered windows and so I painted the upper side like old, worn leather. I approached the chassis using a proven method, with the windows first.

Warhammer 40.000 Adepta Sororitas Battle Sanctum

Games Workshop revisits the Sector Imperialis terrain range for Warhammer 40.000 and adds a Sororitas themed building to it - the Battle Sanctum.

The Sector Imperialis building and ruin sprues were introduced along with Kill Team and came with multiple boxed sets. I've covered the Basilicanum back in 2018 from that range.

Gaslands – First terrain pieces

It's a mystery to me how this happens, but I have the feeling that if you keep searching long enough, one or the other toy car will turn up at every household. Such a miracle happened the other day when I was cleaning up at home, where I discovered this Nissan Titan by chance. From the beginning on, the car looked so ugly and lowered to me, that it looked like a broken car even before I could tinker with it.

Adeptus Titanicus – Civitas Imperialis Spires

In addition to the square building blocks and habitats of the Civitas Imperialis, Games Workshop released in 2019 a supplement to that kit, the Civitias Imperialis Spires, covering church spires and ecclesiarch buildings.

The spires kit is set at 25 EUR and covers a pair of identical large sprues, covering bases, small cathedrals, towers and spires. And of course comes with an assembly instruction.
