Great Unclean One

This was quite a big project. First I did saw the body in two, afterwards I filled the gaps with green stuff and sculpted some details on it. The miniature is full of detail so painting took a while.

Apocalyptic Cityfight: event coverage

Xhammer is the name of a great little club in Kontich (near Antwerp). We try to show ourselves at various wargaming events in Belgium.

Like last year, we played 40K apocalypse. But this time we covered all the table with some fantastic city terrain. This included huge buildings, a big bride, a whole factory and a defence laser. Thanks Wiz and Grimduck for their excellent work!

We gave our first demonstration of this set-up at Crisis 09. This is a big convention in Antwerp, organised by the Tin Soldiers of Antwerp (TSOA).

The game featured Imperial Guard and Dark Angels fighting against Necrons, Traitor guard and some Nurgle Chaos Space Marines.

To our surprise we got second place for our demonstration game! Considering all the other amazing tables, this is a great reward for us. Thanks TSOA for the great event!

Colour scheme test: nurgling

My first painted follower of nurgle is a nurgling! Quite fitting because they are the most numerous.

Sculpted nurgling

Finished the nurgling. Painting will have to wait until I get my paints. I think I a good paintjob will bring out all the gruesome details ;)

Knights Of Bayard: Conquest 6

Last Saturday the Knights Of Bayard held a Warhammer Fantasy tournament: Conquest 6. I went there with my Bretonnians and played 3 1500 points battles over the course of the day.

This was my first tournament and it won't be my last! What a great day. The organisation was flawless, and the location and battlefield where also top class. I saw some beautifully painted and converted armies, see for yourselves in the pictures below. My bretonnians got a 18/20 for painting, not bad with such a high standard.

I played against 3 nice opponents and got a massacre loss, draw and massacre win. At the end of the day, this meant a 18/44 place, not bad for a first tournament :)

Some of my own pictures.

What's up?

It has been a while since I had time to do some hobby stuff. But that will change soon!

I'm going to play in a fantasy tournament next week, so I need to paint/finish a few Bretonnians. Pictures this weekend.

There is a bunch of school work waiting for me in August. But after that it is time to paint some more 40K Dark Angels. I want to finish as many marines as possible for a big demonstration game in November.

In the meanwhile I'm playing 2 great but old games. I re-installed Diablo 2, it looks really old, but it's still fun to run around and to hack & slash! Actually, my skeletons are running around and doing all the hack & slash while I pick up the loot :). I Can't wait for Diablo 3!

Then there is also Magic the gathering. There is a new edition coming out and it looks good. The rules are made more smooth and they made a whole bunch of new cards. I have been playing some games with pre made decks while waiting on the release.

3 rhino's: finished!

Finished! These rhino's have more mud and damage then my other vehicles. That's because they see much more front line action then artillery vehicles.

Close ups of some details:

3 days, 3 rhino's

I have assembled 3 rhino's for my dark angels.

This one is an old 2nd hand model with a bad paint job that destoyed some of the detail. I had to take it apart to clean it with file and sandpaper:

2 regular rhino's:

With Forgeworld details:

I already did most of the painting (no pics yet), saturday: all the green. Sunday: all the metals + some details. Today I have to finish the detailing. I hope it all works out ;)
