Tutorial : Making lava pools

A number of my recent hobby projects have been based around creating tightly themed scenery sets – so far I’ve done a swamp, several sci-fi worlds, a wild west town and a desert.

My next idea was to do a volcanic set, for high fantasy as well as sci-fi games. I’ll cover more of the complete table as I finish the various elements, but this post is to cover the lava pools I’ve been making, using the various Amera crater sets.

From the mists of legend they come…

I’ve always been a fan of some of the more unusual creatures from the depths of Warhammer 3rd edition. Zoats, were wolves, jabberwock and many others haven’t had much limelight for many years.

I’ve been pleased to learn that the Fimir still have rules under the Age of Sigmar game system, but a little disappointed by how different the Forge World Fimir look compared to the classic models of old.

Twelve Encounters of Rogue Stars

I’ve not done a lot of blogging in 2017, although I have posted a lot of pictures directly on the the facebook account for MyWargame and I thought a post was overdue.  I did spent a lot of hobby time working on sci-fi models this year so as a bit of fun, here’s some of the highlights with the context of the Rogue Stars campaign that I’m continuing to run for a growing group of players.

Introducing: Creatures of the Night – Wrath of Cichol

Live right now is Creatures of the Night: Wrath of Cichol, the first fantasy Kickstarter from Krakon Games. Why the long name? Creatures of the Night is the “game world” in which all of Krakon Game’s fantasy models live (well, repeatedly die) and Wrath of Cichol is the first chapter of projects under that brand.

This first chapter both the Fomorian adversaries and one of the first invaders – Partholón. As such, it features 4 models associated with each clan and seeks to unlock further models for this fledgling range.

Black Tree Design review – Wraiths and Dwarves

I took advantage of a recent sale over at Black Tree Design and bought a selection of Dwarves, Undead and feudal humans. There was a small delay in the order due to the humans being out of stock, but after speaking to them on Facebook, they were happy to switch the product and get the order out to me. They even chucked in an extra blister for the delay!

Triple-game Undead

Over at the Oldhammer in the New World Facebook group, the colonials presented a challenge to paint up 200 points of a new army each calendar month. The points must adhere to 3rd or 4th edition Warhammer. I no longer play either, but I do collect Undead and like an excuse to paint them – so I am going to join in. As the ruleset doesn’t matter to me, I’m going to blog the progress with information for both rulesets for pleasure and thematics – and since I actually use my undead for Kings of War, for that too!
