WW1 Group Build Showcase (Male Tank)

Nick speaking,

With the commemoration of one hundred years of WW1 this year, here is my finished male tank that I did for the group build, being run by Greg Huff and AstonM1965 on YouTube. I have never really been into this type of modelling before, but I had great fun with the build, of which I did with my 11 year old son, you can see his tank in the next post, but for now here is my one...

Necron Flayed Ones Vs Orks (7th Edition Battle Report)

Nick speaking,

Here is my first game with my new 7th Edition Flayed One list, and I happen to pull this army out on the same day my buddy was trying out the new Ork Codex for the first time. I really enjoy playing against Orks, they are so much fun, hopefully, you will enjoy the battle report too...

Tyranid Mawloc on the table

Nick speaking,

As many of you already know, I use two Mawlocs in my Tyranid armies quite a lot, but it always bugs me that I only have one of them painted! So guess what is next on my painting table? For some reason there has always been something else to paint, so I am feeling very happy to know that I am going to finally get it painted, and as usual it is fully magnetised, which I have a tutorial on here, if your interested.


Hopefully it will end up something like this...

WW1 Group Build to Honour the Troops

Nick speaking,

With the commemoration of one hundred years of WW1 this year, my son and I have decided to honour the troops and join in a WW1 group build. The build is being run by Greg Huff and AstonM1965 on YouTube and is running until 11/11/14, so please check them out if you fancy joining in. I have never really been into this type of modelling before, and neither has my 11 year old son, so this is going to be fun...


We took a trip to our local hobby store and picked up a couple of WW1 tanks, a male and a female MKIV, and got working on them together. Like I said, we are in the dark when it comes to these kits, so we are just going to build and paint them up as close as we can to the pictures on the boxes and leave it at that. This is how far we have got so far after a few base coats and washes. I am doing the male version on the right...


More to come once we have finished them with some weathering and chipping!

Necron Flayed One 7th Edition Army

Nick speaking,

Time to look at my sixty strong Flayed One themed army for 7th Edition!


So first, lets have a look at my old list, and I have to say that I have been very happy with how my list has performed, to the point that I have never lost a game with it. It's interesting to note that none of my games have made full use of all sixty Flayed ones, with at least one of the units pretty much doing nothing on the table every game except looking pretty, well, pretty mean, but that is part of how the list works with so many big targets in your face...

Flayed Crons (6th Ed)

1x Imotekh (225)

8x Scarabs (120)
7x Scarabs (105)

2000 points


Just to re-cap on the tactics, the three Flayed One units infiltrate and the fast moving Wraiths and Scarabs are there to move up with them turn one. I try to take first turn, which with Imotekh is fairly easy, and he stays at the back with the troops. The Destroyer Lord is the wild card of the list and works with the Wraiths and the beginning of the game and moves to the Flayed Ones or splits off as and when it is needed.


Now, I always wanted to have the Scarab units maxed out and whip coils on all the Wraiths, but the odd Wraith Wargear and smaller Scarab units, were the best I could do to give me the points for all the troops that were needed in 6th! Of course, things are different now, and although troops have great advantages for scoring, the fact that the rest of my army can now score, even the Scarabs, means that I feel I can reduce the blob of Warriors down and still make the list work.

 

With reference to an unbound army, I am thinking that I will take the Flayed Ones in this direction at some point, but for now, I just want to go with the standard set up until I get a few games of 7th under my belt with the army. So, with that said, my starting point is going to be the Scarabs, and beefing up the units to ten is going to be really great for the army. They work really well with this assault based list, along with the Flayed Ones and Wraiths, which will now have Whip Coils on all of them.


Right, now to sort the Warrior Blob out, and with a reduction in troop units, I think it might be wise to put Imotekh in with some Immortals for the 3+ saves, with a couple of small Warrior 'body guard' units either side of him for a bit of protection. Imotekh is still currently in the list, Night fight is nice, and his Lightening attacks is great fun, plus I still have the option to safely deep strike and unit of Flayed Ones if I want, so for now he is staying...

I will have a battle report coming soon for you with this list in action, but please feel free to make any suggestions or if you have any ideas for how an unbound Flayed One army would look, I would be very interested to hear them in the comments section below.

Games Workshop Paint my Terrain!

Nick speaking,

More dead Blood Angels!


A little while ago, I placed third in a painting competition at my local Games Workshop store and won a prize for them to paint up a piece of terrain for me. I thought I would submit the Forge World piece I got for a fiver a while back. It wasn't badly painted when I got it, but it wasn't great either, and it didn't match my board. So, it was time to get the paint stripper out and see what they could do with it...



I just asked for a dead Blood Angel and my usual sand colour to match my board, and the rest was left up to them. I think they did an awesome job and I really like the green finish, as it will go well with my Necron Buildings...
