Warhammer Hobby Update- April 2021

It feels like forever since I last found a spare moment to post on here as life has been rather more hectic than usual. The steady decline of Covid lockdown measures has meant work has become more demanding. What’s more, the gyms are now reopen and even my H.E.M.A club has found an outdoor space where we can start practicing again. Between these and family commitments, I’ve had little time or energy for writing blog posts. That said, I have been doing a bit of hobby and while I have 30 mins free time this morning, thought I’d get a quick post up showing what I’ve been working on.

Warhammer Underworlds- Thundrik’s Profiteers

I spent a bit of time over the Easter bank holiday weekend working on Thundrik’s Profiteers from the skirmish game Warhammer Underworlds. I originally bought these from my FLGS about a year ago as a cheap painting project. Since then they have been painted once, stripped and left sitting in a Tupperware container. Out of sight, out of mind…

They Come Back! The Legions of Nagash Project is Finished.

This last week saw me finally close out work on the Legions of Nagash project and I’m very happy to be able to present the finished army. I found the army on eBay last October and decided it would be a great introduction for my girlfriend into Warhammer Table top. Since receiving the army, I’ve made numerous repairs and tweaks, built the unbuilt kits which it came with and painted/ based all units. It’s been challenging and yet a lot of fun and even though a number of the kits included in the force are older, I really enjoyed working with them and love how the complete collection looks.

The Steam Tank- Why I need it in my list!

People say when choosing which faction you want to collect in a miniature wargame such as 40k or A.O.S, the best advice is to go with the one you love the models for most. After all, you will be spending countless hours building/ painting them and pushing them around the table. It’s also said that rules are temporary but models are eternal! (Or until you sell them on ebay.) This is generally my approach to choosing which factions I want to collect and it’s also why you will likely never see me at a serious gaming tournament. (Well, a combination of suboptimal list choices and crippling anxiety.)

Using the Green Stuff World Textured rolling pins- Miniature Basing

When approaching the basing stage of any project there are a number of options available to create a finished base and give your miniatures a sense of presence. You could simply buy resin cast bases from a 3rd party supplier. If you want a cheaper alternative then you could simply glue flock and static grass to the base or even a fine grit sand/ salt (to be covered in PVA glue and later painted). The Citadel texture paints (and similar products) are another option which provide a fast basing solution and give a good range of finishes which can be painted over for further customisation. If you want a mountainous finish, sheets of cork boarding can be broken up and used. (Though I’ve yet to try this option myself.) Needless to say, there are a ton of options to bring the base of your miniatures to life.

Vampire lord on Zombie Dragon

“Many Vampire lords see undead dragons as the only mounts worthy to bear them into battle. Sitting astride these cadaverous monsters, they soar into the fray, hacking and slicing with wicked blades or splitting helpless victims upon their great lances. Those not slain by the Vampire rider are crushed and torn apart by its steed, or withered to nothing by the creature’s pestilential breath.”
