Unboxing: Spartan Scenics Warehouse Accessories; Corvus Belli: Asawira Spitfire and Infinity talk

Hi Folks,

Cover is a big issue in most table top games. And the approaches to it by the game system are quite different, varying from rather abstract to very detailed. Also toy soldier formations vary greatly throughout the systems. 40k mostly needs obstacles for 5 to 10 models or more. Infinity however needs individual cover, scattered over the field. That's why I got this kit.

Base and beyond: magnetic display board

Good evening and welcome to the world of applied physics,

Today I wanted to show you something I made for my Iyanden project: a magnetic display board. I once purchased a far too big amount of magnets. So I had lots of those lying around.

And a closer look at these Tau


In the last post you saw my test Tau, who I put together in 2001. Now over a decade later they're getting paint. Yayyyyy! That's how fast I work. But I think I have pinned down a super-fast few color paint scheme, which is not super pretty but a good portion over table top standard. I think I have to get I bucket of citadel casandora yellow wash. A very good finish/dye/wash for yellows.

Product Review: Bandua Wargames Alpha Series Q-Building Set

Hey my little Lumberjacks,

I just wanted to give you a quick review of an hdf terrain kit a got recently: Bandua Wargames's Infinity licensed Q-Building Set. My fist hdf/mdf kit and I have to say: I LOVE the smell of laser roasted wood fibers (way better than new car smell).

All your base are belong to us!

Arruuu! Greetings fellow earthicans,

This post is dedicated entirely to bases. As you might already have guessed by now, I like to put a lot of emphasis on bases. However I do not like resin scenic bases that much for two reasons. The first being that resin is quite likely to get its paint chipped away.

Hobby days on Ice

Hey Hey Hey my little arch traitors,

Here goes the almost last catch up post on rather recent events. It's about the Night Lords project, which I have pushed way back on the to do shelf... it is on ice/hold  basically. For three reasons: 1. Forgeworld will come up with night lord bits and rules before this year is out. 2. I'll get some Dark Vengeance CSM out of a trade soon. 3. GW might even give them some love in form of a codex supplement. Who knows? I can wait; I mean it's not that I have nothing else to do.  Anyways here’s what I’ve done so far.
