Armies on Parade 2016 Board Ideas

Nick speaking,

Time to actually start work on my Armies on Parade board! I know it's been a fair while since I posted about entering my Space Wolves into this years competition, but to be honest, most of that wait was finding an appropriate board to use. Luckily, my buddy was able to get me a board via his work, so with my board in hand, lets see what we can come up with!



The initial plan was to have a building at the back of the board with some Long Fangs in it and then the rest of the army charging forward at the front. On reflection, I think that will be a little one dimensional, so with a look over my cityfight terrain, I found my two buildings that have a bridge between them...



With this set up I can have my two Long Fang units in the buildings and the Grey Hunters at the front as envisioned, but when the buildings are together I have a spare section at the back of the board. I was thinking I would have all my Fenrisian Wolves charging at the back and under the bridge following the Hunters into battle! I think it will add a sort of 3D effect to the board and make it a lot more interesting!



The first job will be to get some cork and make the surface of the board match my armies urban rubble bases. I am planning on insetting the buildings into the cork to help blend them in, but we will see how that goes. More to come soon!

The Year of the Wolf (26)

Nick speaking,

Time to get back to the Wolves and the second unit of Long Fangs I previously posted about. I have made a great start on them since finishing the Dark Eldar, and so far I have done all the base coats and washes ready for highlighting. As always I am really enjoying the Wolves, they are so much fun to paint...

Star Wars Themed Warhammer 40K Battle Report

Nick speaking,

So after five games with my Necrons at my recent tournament, it was time to get my Eldar out for a special game against my buddies Star Wars themed Imperial Guard army. You can see his army in more detail on his YouTube Channel if your interested, but with a Rancor Wraithknight, Darth Vader Farseer, Storm Trooper Guardsman and more. This game was going to be epic! Not only that, but it was as good as reason as any to get my green stuff Royal Guard model on the table as well...
