4th Advent Weekender

I hope you had a solid december so far and can enjoy the upcoming holidays! It's the 4th advent and we're pretty close to Christmas. So let's take a look on what's cooking this weekend.

Lord of the Rings - Rohan Terrain

The new Rohan Buildings seem to be very popular, thus the Stronghold bundle was sold out in no time. I managed to acquire a kit of the town house and the tower / wall segment, that I'll cover in the new year. I am really looking forward to this, as the multipart kit provides a lot of freedom towards your creative needs.

White Dwarf in November

Last friday the current issue arrived at the 'bunker and close to christmas the White Dwarf comes with some interesting goodies. The issue came in a card board sleeve, incl. an artprint and four bonus cards for multiple games.

Price stays the same at 8 EUR. And the cover is the special one delivered with the subscription issues. The cards cover a Strategem for Adeptus Titanicus, a Special Play for Blood Bowl, a card for Warhammer Underworlds and an Ace for Aeronautica Imperialis.

Steam and October White Dwarf

On Friday the current issue (October 2019) of White Dwarf arrived, Warhammer Community already gave it a brief preview on the content. As I have the subscription issue, I have a slightly different cover. This one has a complete cover showing the artwork of the Wrath and Rapture boxed set, that was released last december.

Multiple Vessels incoming, new White Dwarf

I have the reviews on some of the larger vessels for Cruel Seas in the box and ready for next week to be published, with the merchant tanker, the flower-class corvette and the m-class minesweeper waiting.

Korea, Tanks and even more Boats

I am currently preparing the Cruel Seas review, along with the Flotillas and larger ships. I mentioned the resin ships in my last short update, Civilans, Romans and Boats, and I find it very appealing to build something completely different to the very dominant 28mm kits that I usually cover.

Assembly goes fast, as does the cleaning of the models, but the instructions could be clearer. I'll go into detail on that in the review.

Food, movies and bases!

So I am back since the middle of the week. Been busy, taking a lot of pictures, as you can see below. Build a couple of kits, among them three Knight kits for Adeptus Titanicus.

And the July 2019 issue of White Dwarf arrived, along with a new promo card for Warhammer 40.000 Munchkin. Remember that I have some spare promo cards and book marks and you have the chance to get them, just by asking me for them at a convention or show.

A couple of interesting articles in there, for example I really did enjoy the new colour scheme they showed for the Astra Militarum / Imperial Guard, along with this beautiful Kill Team by Maxime Pastourel (also known as Mörback from Les Kouzes and I've shown his stunning Nurgle Army from Warhammer Fest here). There is a new game mode for Underworlds, have to give it a try.

May Dance

Just before German Labour Day, May 1st, the White Dwarf arrived along with the latest two warbands for Nightvault.

In addition I picked up the Citadel water pot at my local Warhammer store. If you're wondering about the cover, that's a subscription issue, where the artwork covers the whole front as a special service for the subscribers.

Salute-Weekend, Matildas and Knights

This weekend is Salute in London. I would have loved to be there, last year (Salute 2018 and the Operation Sealion!) was incredible fun and it would be great to see the folks again,  but with all that Brexit stuff going on, I wasn't keen on booking a flight and then having a uncertain situation (or fresh new one) at the airport. Besides that, being a dad, just staying away for the weekend for leisure is something that you want to plan and use wisely (there are a couple of weddings this year, along with stag nights and such, so I might need one or two rain checks). Oh and then there is of course Crisis this year, that I wouldn't want to miss.

Well, but what's going on in the 'bunker? You've probably seen the reviews on the 2019 model of Abaddon the Despoiler and the Chaos Gate that isn't called a Chaos Gate. Browsing through the old Chaos Codex is very dangerous. Alluring project ideas, especially for my oldhammer faible, but I'm currently involved enough with my Imperial Guard (and Eldar, wait, did I just spill the beans? Forget what you read...) and a new / additional Chaos project would just make it hard(er) to focus.

Never the less, I saw an old Abaddon in proper condition for 5 EUR and had to have it...

Oldhammer – The hunt – progress update

I am quite happy to announce, that my hunt on the Oldhammer stuff, that I covered a couple of weeks before, was rather successful. Via the introduced and mentioned channels I managed to acquire some interesting kits and spare parts to build the Imperial Guard retro project around.

Warhammer 40,000 - 2nd Edition Oldhammer Warhammer 40.000 - Oldhammer Leftovers Warhammer 40.000 - Oldhammer Leftovers

With the Basilisk it was a bit tricky, as for some reason, the new kit is currently Mail Order only and thus making the used kits "more" rare. As with the Basilisk, one of the main problems are missing parts, like the fence on the rear being incomplete. I didn't care for the crew, as that was added later in the third or fourth edition and not part of the initial release in the 2nd edition. A crew that was important for me, was the one of the Griffon tank. I managed to buy the pair of soldiers, incl. the commlink back pack, and got quite some treasures with them. Yes, that are the old cardboard and necromunda bulkhead terrain pieces. And the stack on the right is vehicle accessories sprues, mostly complete. Believe me, I'm in heaven. Especially with buying older vehicle kits, often the hatches or some parts like that are missing or incomplete.
