Infinity - Hephaestus Scenery Pack + District 5 Objective Room

I did a bit of terrain painting today which was kinda fun! It was the simple MAS District 5 Objective Room, something we will need for gaming in the near future (As I get more of a handle on playing again and we start with the ITS missions). I didn't do the most time consuming job on it but I am still pretty chuffed with the results.

A couple of weeks back I gave the 4x4 Moto.Tronica table to my friend Dan who hosts our fortnightly gaming night, and ordered 4x sets of the new Hephaestus card stock terrain to match my Aleph dudes. The objective room was painted up to be a similar aesthetic to the containers included in the pack with a Blue/Black fade and bold line highlighting on these areas. The grey has a diagonal fade between light and a darker shade across the panels and I will paint in some of the floor detail with a brush to match the Hephaestus game mat aesthetic (purple text etc). The design on this one is not quite as good as the Moto.Tronica set, some of the layers appear to have not scaled up well for print and the text overlaps lines that it really shouldn't. I still like the Hephaestus 'table' a lot though and the more subtle colouring of the mat should be a bit easier to find your miniatures and markers on than the Moto.Tronica where you can lose stuff quite easily.

I've also ordered from Customeeple the Angel Giraldez designed base toppers for Aleph to match this, as well as the ITS objective set they produce. I cant wait for that stuff to arrive! I'm holding off on painting miniatures at the moment until they get here so I can rebase the whole lot I have done so far, then press on with the new stuff. Back to Tyranids for a little bit I think...

Acastus Knight Porphyrion COMPLETED!!!!!

Acacstus Knight Porhpyrion, easily the biggest and most complex kit build and paint job I have ever done for a gaming miniature. I'm really happy with the result but the 60 hrs I spent on getting it finished kinda baked my noodle. I have no idea how the titan painters get through it! Anyway here are some studio shots, let me know what you think!

Horus Heresy Event Pics - Skulls October 2018

Hey my dudes,

I played at our bi-anually held 'Skulls' Heresy event on the weekend, I didn't get a whole heap of pictures as I always seemed to go full time in my games while we rolled dice and had a good fun bit of banter. It was the most low key iteration of this event I've been to so far, players were largely allowed to choose their game style, points level and table theme and just get after it each round.

I ended up playing a great 1500pt opening game against one of the young bloods, Pat. He was running Iron Hands and the scenario basically had my forces ambushed and deployed in a random fashion with a D6 sending them to one of six 24" squares. I managed to intercept a few things at the right time to give me some breathing room but I had a really hard time hurting his troops and walkers with the -1 to the shooting strength of my weapons. I ended up running away with the victory though in the end, having so many troops who were able to capture the objectives on…

Gaslands Tabletop Game - Hot Wheels Conversion 1 WIP

Hey Dudes,
Gaslands, a post-apocalyptic car combat miniatures game where you take Hot Wheels, or Matchbox 1/64 scale toy cars and convert/paint them up for the theme. I heard about it on the Secret Cabal Gaming Podcast and checked out a bit of the action on Instagram and was really blown away by the concept and the review the boys gave the game. I bought the rules and had a read through and I loved the template style movement, the gear sections which are like phases for each round are a really cool system and the combat seems good. 
I got this monster truck and maybe 10 cars, I didn't want to go too hardcore on the guns and shit just yet, I also figure a monster truck should probably be about ripping around running shit down and doing jumps so I've gone with extra armour and maybe a few hidden upgrades like nitrous. I'll paint two teams up and get a battlefield terrain setup done so I can try and convince my mates to get into it and see where it goes.
As the Secret Cabal …
