Warhammer 40,000 – Battlezone: Fronteris – Nachmund

Today is the release day of the latest terrain box for Warhammer 40,000 - the Battlezone Fronteris Nachmund. It was originally announced in January as part of War Zone Vigilus and now is finally here.

It went on pre-order last Saturday for 175 EUR and Games Workshop was kind enough to send me a copy for a review. The Nachmund boxed set is a bundle of the individual kits, shown below.

Necromunda – Guild Hall

This one has been travelling my mind for a while. The idea of a octagon terrain piece, using the Sector range, already came along, when I build the Basilicanum from the Sector Imperialis range, as well as the Battle Sanctum from the Adepta Sororitas.

So, when I saw these pieces on the tables of one of the White Dwarf battle reports (this one mostly stayed in my head due to the railway waggons) and the magnificent table build by Shinnentai (only found him on Facebook and Twitter), I felt I needed this in my underhive terrain section as well.

Necromunda – Ferratonic Silos Part 2

Thanks for the feedback on the first build of the ferratonic silos. I continued working on the mocked-up version. Gluing down some further parts and finishing the walkway among other things.

To close up the half-domes, I needed to cut the inlay. That would actually be a hard thing to do just with a hobby knife, so I'm glad my tools cover a broader variety. The dremel would be too wide, but I have a hobby-saw. I use the one from Army Painter, which seems to be out of production, it was around 10-12 EUR. Warlord Games and GaleForce9 cover a similar product. It is proper way to split the topper into parts without removing too much material doing so.

Necromunda – Ferratonic Silos

As spoken about in the Plasma Reactor article, I have further use for the incinerator pieces. I've seen this one in a White Dwarf and thought it might add to a Necromunda table as well.

And I've seen that conversion, using the Incinerator with the dome on top, split half as a larger footprint terrain piece multiple times, but this was one of the best conversion among them, by Christopher "Bradgamma" Burwood (and he's on Twitter as well).

Necromunda – Plasma Reactors

What's next after the Blood Bowl Chaos Team? Well, I intend to paint a 90s Necromunda gang and got into the vibe by building a "retrofitted" terrain piece of the repurposed pump from Killteam Octarius. And as mentioned in that article, I need absolutely more than just the bulkheads from the classic range. I gathered some inspiriation of the years and with the announced price rise of the Games Workshop range (along with different terrain kits going OOP without prior notice), I stocked up on some of the kits.

Necromunda – Water supply

After writing about the Ash Wastes coming to Necromunda, I felt the urge to build some terrain. I stocked up on some kits lately, and bought these two sprues from eBay.

Necromunda Terrain

But why the need for more terrain in Necromunda? I already have a truck load of bulk heads to recreate the classic kits along with some of the older 40k terrain kits. But to me, I always wondered, if Necromunda is about gang war, trying to sabotage the operations of the other houses, damage the production capacities and keep the rival house from fulfilling their commitments towards the guilds or higher houses. So why aren't didn't we see actuall production facilities? Mine shafts, melting pots, production lines or other industrial terrain, and not just shells of multi-level towers with walkways.

The Rohan settlement returns

Games Workshop just announced, that the Rohan terrain kits will return for christmas, with the huge bundle of the Rohan settlement itself.

The range was originally released at the end of 2019, covering the Rohan House and Rohan Watchtower & Palisade. The settlement was a bundle, covering six houses and two times the palisades for a price of 200 EUR (and was pretty much sold out right away).

Warhammer Age of Sigmar – Realmscape Nexus Syphon

Among the Realmscape terrain kits released along with the new Age of Sigmar edition, is the Nexus Syphon. It is either part of the Extremis boxed set or available individually.

The overall design of the new Age of Sigmar 3.0 terrain was moved from ruins of battle, towards new towns and outposts under construction, rebuilding and forging new settlements. The Nexus Syphon, a magical construct to channel the energy from the realms to power and protect these newly founded colonies of the Dawnbringer Crusades.

Twelve months, 20,- Euro – Part 8

It's happened to me again, it's September and I'm writing my recap for August - yes, the summer void has continued and aside from a few more rocks for my terrain collection, I haven't gotten far.

Twelve months, 20,- Euro – Part 8

But I am all the more satisfied with the result. I had already finished the lower three rocks and expanded them with the four rock formations above. I never thought I'd ever have to write so many words about rocks in the tabletop field, but they are amazingly versatile as game terrain.

Twelve months, 20,- Euros – Part 5

May is over and as expected I haven't had that much free time due to my new job. But as the saying goes, sometimes class counts more than mass. Following this motto, I managed relatively early in the month to paint my leader for the troop of Greek mercenaries and Corinthians.

Mortal Gods - Diamachos Mortal Gods - Diamachos

Since he got a completely new miniature, I also gave him a new name: Diamachos. The name is derived from the greek word for quarrel (diamachi) and is supposed to represent that this fearless mercenary captain lives from the conflict of others.
