Adeptus Titanicus release date!

Great news from Warhammer Fest, Adeptus Titanicus is finally going to be released this year. The actual month has not been set but I would hazard a guess at around August  time.

The game will be using data sheets for each Titan, they will be used for the weapons and control systems. Each Titan will also need a card pack.

The battle will be played on 4x4 boards i want to thank for all the cool pictures and info.

Blood Bowl Orcs

That is right i am starting an Orc Blood Bowl team. I have never really given this game any of my attention before. I think manly because of Epic and 40k take up so much time, money and space. Thanks to a co-worker also playing i now have no good reason to not have at least one team ready.

Watch this space...........

Repainting bases. Part 1

I cleared my work desk off and set out my Epic Imperial Guard army the other day. I enjoy seeing it all out on parade, really who would not. The thing that struck me the most was that over time i have changed the colour of the infantry bases. As you can see in the picture below it makes the army look less uniformed.

So i have decided to repaint the old 90's goblin green bases with a grave yard brown. I think this will add a nice uniformed feel to the army as they march off to destroy the enemies of the Emperor.

World of Tanks Blitz & Warhammer 40K

You may have heard already by now, that World of Tanks Blitz is having a Halloween special event, that has Games Workshops Space Marine tanks in it. I am super excited for this event as i am a big fan of world of tanks, i play it most days, it is a fun game. From what i have heard is that it is going to be called "Macragge's Thunder" and you can play two types of tanks. The Predator and a Vindicator.


I think i may have to rethink my promise never to buy gold if that is the only way to play them, time will tell.

Storage for my Armies

 There really are a mind blowing amount of different types of miniature carrying cases on the market. All different shapes and sizes at a wide range of prices. So let me share with you what i use to transport and store my Epic and 40k armies. I now mainly use Handgun cases!

I  have collected a number of different cases over the years to store and transport my epic and 40k  miniatures they range from the old old old style single layer GW cases to the old two sided GW cases, then the big GW cases. Some KM cardboard cases and then finally the cheapest and easiest available cases are the handgun case!

It sounds odd but they are cheap, readily available in north America/Canada and i just like the idea of people not really knowing what is actually inside the case. I know that in Europe and other parts of the world there are not as many gun stops or hardware stores that stock them. Then i say have a look on ebay or Amazon and see if they are cheap enough to get.

Capital imperials W.I.P part 2

So i have enjoyed having a bit of a break from posting, but i have not been slacking. I have done a little work on my Awesome Capital Imperials. I have always felt it was under gunned for such an important mobile Command centre. So i set out to give it a full weapons upgrade. this included anti aircraft defences and all-round coverage. As you can see i replaced the side weapons from a short stubby whatever it was, to a more powerful looking lascannon type. The main weapon turret will have an upgrade soon but for now i have added an anti air turret on top. The back of the main flight deck i also added a missile system scratch built from BFG turrets and plastic tubing. More will follow after i glue it all together.

Epic Armageddon Sentinels

I painted these two units of Sentinels up ready for the games of Epic i just played at TABSCon i only really only had about a week to get them ready, so i was not going to go all out on the paint job. Saying that i still wanted them to look nice. The good news was i had already assembled the and undercoated them in black.

So off i went, i painted the legs and main body in codex grey, leaving a strip of black by the joints all up the leg, so i could paint bolt gun metal over them later. The multi-barrel area on the weapon had each barrel picked out in bolt gun metal as well.

the back part of the weapon and the helmet were painted codex grey. the face area was painted dwarf flesh. the base was painted brown then sand was glued on then painted over with brown. I added a bit of white to the brown and dry rushed it on, then I glued a few spots of static grass on and I was done.
