The Year of the Wolf (29) Wulfen Time!

Nick speaking,

Right, back to the Space Wolves, and as my Wolf army is the 13th Company, I am sure you can imagine how happy I am that the Wulfen are back! At one point I was going to use my 23 old school Wulfen models as Blood Claws, but not any more. First though, I need to do some conversion work. I have some experience cutting up these old metal models, as I use to play some of them as my Mark of Wulfen pack leaders for my Grey Slayers.




More to come one I have some conversions done!

Nick speaking,

Time for another battle report with my good friend and fellow YouTuber Scrag Guard. We went to the Last Chance Open Tournament at WarGames together in January and decided to both play the lists we didn't take to the event. Please check out Scrag Guards Channel here and take a look at his awesomely themed Star Wars armies...

Necron Promethium Pool Showcase (Terrain Square 'Corner' Competition 2017)

Nick speaking,

That's the Terrain Corner all finished, really happy how the water effect came out, especially as it was my first time using resin. I will post more on the process of how I did the effects in a future post, but for now here is my completed corner terrain...

Necron Promethium Pool #3 (Terrain Square 'Corner' Competition 2017)

Nick speaking,

Back to the Terrain Corner I am doing for my Terrain making competition, sponsored by Inside Out Terrain and WarGames...


Right, so my first task was to make the Promethium Relay Pipes look like Necron pipes. I put a lot of work into that, shaving off all the rivets and spikes and adding loads of Necron bitz to them. I also extended some of the pipes with some old till rolls, using cardboard to detail them up a little...







Then it was back the the terrain itself, after loads of filler and PVA glue to make it waterproof for the water effects at the end, I then added sand to the piece. I also used some mounting board (thick cardboard) to cover up the corners edges, which I think finishes it of nicely. Next is to get it painted and add the water effects!

Nick speaking,

Time for my Kazon Kabal to see more action on the table top. I haven't played Dark Eldar that much, but I have to say they are a lot of fun to run...

Necron Promethium Pool #2 (Terrain Square 'Corner' Competition 2017)

Nick speaking,

Back to the Terrain Corner I am doing for my Terrain making competition, sponsored by Inside Out Terrain and WarGames. I have put a link to both of them at the bottom of the post, so please make sure you head on over and check them out.


OK, so first, I build the Promethium Pipes and worked out where I wanted them to go onto the piece of terrain. I felt like I wanted to make the pipe sections bigger so I found a few tubes (till rolls) and added them to the pieces. Once I worked out where they were going, I took them off and started cutting out the pool for the water effects...



The next job will be to makes the pipes look like they are Necron pipes and not Imperial. I started this by removing the spikes at the top and by adding some Necron pieces to hide the aquilas. I am thinking the rivets aren't very Necronish, so I plan on removing them so that it has a more of a Living Metal feel to them. Lots more to do but getting there. More to come soon...

Necron Promethium Pool #1 (Terrain Square 'Corner' Competition 2017)

Nick speaking,

With just a few weeks left of the Terrain Square 'Corner' Competition left, I thought it was time I started posting about the piece of terrain I am building to run along side everyone else's entries. We have two great prizes available for the top pieces from our Sponsors Inside Out Terrain and WarGames and I have put a link to both of them at the bottom of the post, so please make sure you head on over and check them out.


As for my corner, I plan on making a large Necron piece of terrain to go in the corner of the board. I really want to have a go at some water effects, although mine will be green of course! I managed to pick up some Promethium Relay Pipes from WarGames when I went there in January, so I thought that would be a nice addition to the piece to give it more detail



Now I have the basic shape of the piece. Next will be to cut out the Promethium pool and get the pipes built and into the position I want them to go. More to come soon...

Geigor Fell Hand Conversion Finished

Nick speaking,

That's the Space Wolves 13th Company Geigor conversion complete. In the end, I decided to magnetise his head to give me both options, a Chaos head for when I use the model in 40k and the actual Geigor head for 30k games. The sword conversion ended up going really well. Turning that metal left handed sword into a right hand one was very tricky, but it came out well and was well worth the effort. Hopefully Abaddon won't be too upset that this guy has stolen his sword!
