The Inquisition - The Lady Painted

Alright, here is my first attempt at painting a non 40k lady. I haven't done one of the eyes as the light was too dim to do it well, but other than that she is finished. Let me know what you think.

Fixing GW Games

Sitting back and looking at my new Astra Militarum Codex - which was the most boring codex I have ever read by the way. But I will have a review of that in about 24 hours. - and I was thinking about how GW does their games. Obviously for anyone who looks at my blog I do love 40k and Fantasy, but I do see the huge flaws the games have. Everyone will have many different reasons for it, but in my opinion it can be easily fixed. 

Irrelevant picture, but decorative.

Taurox Half Track Conversion Kit

I know for many, that having wheels for the front part of the Taurox is a big deal breaker for liking the model. So I present Victoria Miniatures conversion kit:

Painted Taurox and Campaign Prelude Part 3

Its still a work in progress, but here is a close to completion Taurox Prime who will take part in the 3rd campaign battle tomorrow. Just some detailing work, cleaning and highlighting to go. Embarrassingly I forgot to remove the mold lines (don't ask how) so that needs to be done too. But this will do for the next battle. Here she is:

Fire Storm Armada - The War in Spaaaaace!

My friend and I have been talking about getting into Battle Fleet Gothic for a while now. But the model availability has always put us off. To my surprise he came to me the other day and told me about Fire Storm Armada.

Flames of War - The Warhammer 40K of Historic Games

Last post until the Astra Militarum Codex arrives... 

Contrary to the suggestion of the title this is not in any way a GW rant etc or a suggestion that FoW is anything similar etc. But more about trying to get players to branch out a bit in their wargames. So with that in mind I shall explain.

Conscripts for the Astra Militarum

The new Imperial Guard codex unfortunately has removed my Penal Legion as an option. At first I was kind of annoyed. However I remember thinking how odd it was that the prisoners where fielded in units of 10 men. So the plan now is to create masses of conscripts. How will I go about this?

Tempestus Reveal - Early Look into the Codex

The Following is from someone who has apparently got the codex. Seems legitimate to me. So I thought I would share to those who may not have seen it.:

The Over Looked Importance of Terrain

We, as wargamers frequently talk of the latest models, cool lists and so on. There is nothing wrong with that, but I sometimes feel terrain takes a back seat in the eyes of many of us. 

So I wanna emphasize terrain today, as much a rules, army lists and models can turn the tide of battle, so too can terrain. And much more. I will detail my plans for a board as well. So any advice would be appreciated.
