Just moved house, new man-cave!

Howdy!

This week has been a big one, my girlfriend and I have moved out of our little apartment and into a bigger 3x2 Townhouse. I hate the actual shift itself but it's worked out brilliantly as we were sharing a study/hobby space before, and it was really cramped. We now have a room each!





I've taken a gamble and gotten one of the potentially exploding Ikea display cases! Fingers crossed. I'm planning to get around to laminating the underside with clear to catch any pieces if it does let go, but whether I do is another thing..


I'm glad I kept the picture of the Astral Claws dread that I got with one of the two Badab Imperial Armour books, I have the Space Marine chapters one from the conflict too but it's freaking massive and I couldn't find a frame big enough to fit it.


Had a bit of a win with a local games vendor and managed to pick up some GW stock for 50% off retail, super score! I got Silver Tower because I actually really want to play that with the girlfriend and the miniatures are gorgeous. I also got the Deathwatch Overkill set for the Stealer cult models. I'm going to leave some as they are but also convert a few to use as an Inquisimunda 2.0 warband in the coming months. Also picked up some Skitarii Ruststalkers for conversion parts at the same time and the novel 'Primarchs' which I haven't read yet. He had heaps of stuff and I was tempted to go all out but I had to hold back a bit for fear of the wrath.


Got a bit of stuff in the 'Closers Cabinet', looking forward to seeing this grow as the SoH increases and I add a bit more nid's stuff in the form of Stealer Cult allies.

Next up is a painted Zone Mortalis, I want to get this done ASAP so expect to see it in the next week or so.

Cheers
Jack

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 …
