Living Tomb Formation - Nearly Done

Nick speaking,

So after finishing the green in the last post, I went back to the metal work and lined in all the recesses with a black wash. Some of the bigger areas were just painted black, along with the Monolith guns. The guns are highlighted, but it is quite subtle, but matches the rest of my army. I have also finished painting the gold and white details that I wanted to do, so I am nearly done now. Just the Transcendent C'Tan and bases to go...

My First 40K Tournament - What Army?

Nick speaking,

It's been a very long time coming, but I am finally going to enter my very first Warhammer 40k tournament! Yes, you read it correct. Thanks mainly to my good buddy Aceface on his YouTube Channel, I will be entering a local tourney called The Pompey Pillage in August 2016 and I can't wait. The only issue I have is to decide what army to take and come up with an army list.

There are a few things to take into consideration, including some restrictions on what you can take in your army. The five games will be played at eighteen hundred points, and each army will have ten battle points to spend, which can be spent in the following way...

Bringing The Big Boys 1pt + 1pt per Hull Point or Wound
(Each Super-Heavy or Gargantuan Creature)

From The Skies 1pt
(Each Flying Unit)

Hold The Fort 1pt per Hull Point (minimum 2)
(Each Fortification)

Being Heavy 1pt
(Each Unit/Squadron of three of more Vehicles or Monstrous Creatures)

I’ve Got The D 1pt
(Each unit with up to two “D” strength weapons)

Bringing The D 3pts
(Each unit with 3 or more “D” strength weapons – not cumulative with “I’ve Got The D”)

Two Of A Kind* 1pt
(Taking two of the same unit selection – for example taking two Space Marine Assault Squads)

Three Of A Kind* 3pts
(Taking three of the same unit selection)

Four Of A Kind 6pts
(Taking four of the same unit selection)

Primary Detachment 0pt
(Your starting Detachment or Formation)

Battle Brother 1pt
(Taking an additional Detachment or Formation with the Battle Brother alignment)

Ally Of Convenience 2pts
(Taking an additional Detachment or Formation with the Battle Brother alignment)

My first job is to decide what army to play, and although I would love to take my Space Wolves to see how they get on in the painting side of the event. I don't really have enough points painted without majorly stretching what is already a very uncompetitive army.

That leaves, Eldar, Necron or Tyranids, but to be honest, I think I will discount Nids as I think I need something that will be a bit forgiving if I make any mistakes under the pressure of my first Tourney! So, it's between the Crons and Eldar then, a tough call and something I need to think about for sure. The event is a long way off, so plenty of time to lock it all down and get some practice games in, but if you have any advice I would be more than happy to hear about it in the comments box below.

Star Trek Attack Wing Species 8472 Have Arrived!

Nick speaking,

I know it's been a while since I posted about Attack Wing and the Borg ships I acquired, but I am still having so much fun playing this awesome game with my son and buddies. The Borg ships have seen some action, which I will post at the bottom of this post if your interested. The thing is, I now have a new ship to play, and it's a Bioship!

I got this one cheap from eBay, and not only does it look really cool, it seems to have some special rules that make it look quite good on the table. Species 8472 has arrived and I can't wait to have some fun with it. Battle report coming soon.

Living Tomb Formation - Painting the Metalwork

Nick speaking,

Just a quick update on my progress of painting the Necron Living Tomb Formation models. I have completed the metalwork now, going in with a large soft brush and dry brushing one coat of Iron Breaker and one coat of Lead Belcher. I know there are some large flat areas on the models, but even so, with a bit of care you can get a good 'metal' look with this technique!

The next step for the metal will be to wash all the recesses with black, but before I do that I will go in and paint the green areas, and yes, that includes all the little Scarab eyes on the inside!

The Webways are Opening! #8 Scourges and Hellions!

Nick speaking,

Back to Phase Two of my new Dark Eldar army that I am doing for the £25.00 Army Challenge. With £18.06 left, and a big need of some anti tank options for my army, I have been racking my brains as to what to do next! Ravagers and Scourges seem to be good options, but both are hard to find at a cheap price, so I came up with the idea of buying some cheap Wyches which no one seems to want these days, and making some wings for them out of plasticard!

Well, I ran the idea past one of my YouTube buddies that specialises in plastcard/styrene work, and during the conversation he said that he had some 'old' Scourges that he would be willing to send me for free! Seems like I struck gold again, as not only did he send me nine of the 'new' Scourges, but in the parcel were also five Hellions! A massive thank you to Kiblams for his generosity, and if you haven't heard of his YouTube Channel or Styrene based facebook page, please go and check them out for me!

A few repairs are needed, but now I really am on course for getting to two thousand points in phase two of the project!

Living Tomb Formation - Monolith Repaint

Nick speaking,

So yeah, in the end I decided I would repaint my old Monolith, I painted it a long time ago and not to a great standard. usually it wouldn't bother me, but as I am painting another Monolith for my Living Tomb Formation, I want the three tanks to all look the same!

The first job was to remove the green plastic pieces! I personally like them and didn't want to paint over them. To remove the green bits, I simple dropped some water on them to work the PVA glue loose. This only took ten minutes and I was then able to remove the green part with a knife very easily...

Although the paint job I did was poor, it wasn't thickly painted, so I didn't need to strip it, I just went over the tank with some black primer. All done ready for painting...

Next Painting Project: Necron Living Tomb Formation!

Nick speaking,

Finally, the Long Fangs are done and it is time to get my Living Tomb Formation up and running, not the best formation in the world, but hell, it looks like a lot of fun!

I already have one Monolith painted from way back, but to be honest, it isn't a very good paint job as I was very inexperienced in them days. I must admit, I am seriously considering repainting it, but either way, this is going to be a lot of fun, really can't wait to get stick into these bad boys! More to come soon...

The Year of the Wolf (24) Showcase

Nick speaking,

Here is my first 13th Company Space Wolves Long Fangs all finished up. I am really happy how they came out and they will make a great addition to my army, which has been seriously lacking in long range fire support lately. I really hope you like them, let me know what you think in the comments box below...
