Aeronautica Imperialis – Taros Air War

Right along with the Skies of Fire starter box, came Taros Air War, the second campaign supplement for Aeronautica Imperialis.

The Taros Air War is part of the Taros Campaign, a conflict Forge World covered in one of their Imperial Armour books back in 2004, Imperial Armour Volume Three - The Taros Campaign, to be precise. Taros was mining world, in the Ultima Segmentum, in the service of the Imperium of Man. But the Planetary Governor Aulis, head of the Taros government, developed friendly trading relations with the Tau, and sought to defect to the Tau Empire with the support of much of the planetary population. A treachery the Imperium couldn't let go unpunished, and their response was relentless.

HANS! Number 5 is alive

Late last year I participated in HANS! the traveling wargaming treasure chest, and another one was sent on its way in June, just to arrive on wednesday at my door step.

DHL didn't do the best job this week, after destroying a package and losing its content from Nuremberg to me, that was one bad experience and now taking over a week to ship HANS! about 280 km within Germany, wasn't that great either. But thankfully HANS arrived in good shape.

As I wasn't keen on picking this one up at the post office, I took care to accept HANS in person and as they have the tendency to drop by while the little on sleeps, I have mastered the art of catching them before ringing the door bell. And there he was, in all his packed glory.

HANS! arrives 

With all the shows and events being cancelled this year, and my last contact with wargaming person being my visit to Warhammer World in january, I was really really looking forward to do some digging through the boxes.

White Dwarf #453 April 2020

While some of you may already the #454 issue, the April issue of White Dwarf arrived here last week. Due to the corona post hick-ups my subscription copy was lost, but the Games Workshop customer service took care of it, and send a replacement on its way.

Therefore we have the regular cover of White Dwarf #453 April 2020 (yet the month stated has to be taken rather loosely, as Grombrindal explains over here).

A trip down memory lane … first time to Warhammer World

Easter Sunday, April 4th 1999, was the first time for me to be at Warhammer World. Visiting the museum and store at the "new" (back then it was) Games Workshop headquarter in Lenton, where they are located until today.

But how did I, a merely 15 year old lad from the west of Germany get to the British midlands? My father took us for a trip to England, doing some groundhopping in and around London, and was looking forward to pay a visit to Nottingham, a city that took to him, when he was there a few years earlier, for the UEFA quarter finals second leg with Bayern Munich against Nottingham Forest. And what a happy coincedence, that there was more to Nottingham than just football. Today it is the other way around, when I'm at Nottingham, I usually drop by the stadium City Ground and bring something back with me for him.

While cleaning up and taking stock of my collection, I stumbled upon the tickets for the museum from that day, and would like to take you with me to a trip down memory lane. There were two types of tickets, one for the gamers which cost a few pounds and the ones for the "squigherders" (that was at least the name, the tickets had at Games Days for the parental chaperon) that were free, for those who accompanied the juveniles.

INQ28 – The Mundalorian

I have built and painted this one in 2009, and decided it is time to new pictures. The bounty hunter "Boba" was created for the Inq28 project.

Weekend Update CW 20/2020 – Roofing, Backlogs and Lego

Had a bit of spare time on friday night and took up the kitbash of the Laketown House. A more detailled coverage on the build will soon follow. Mixed up a bit of Grey Stuff by P3 and took care of the gaps between the shingles and wall pieces. And as usual, you end up with too much modelling clay.

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.

Oldhammer Khorne Berzerker

We have the undivided squads set with Chaos Terminators and regular Chaos Space Marines. Let's take a look at some Chaos Space Marines with a dedicated mark of a chaos god. And of course that has to be the mark of the most powerful of them all - KHORNE!

There are multiple ways to do so, you could give the mark to regular CSM, choose a chapter devoted to the Blood God or go full in, with the renegades of the World Eaters. Back then, they were not yet Khorne Berzerkers, but "regular" very frenzy CSM of the XII legion.

These Worldeaters (sic) got a mono-pose plastic kit, and depending on which year we're looking at different metal miniatures.
