Mechanicus terrain II

It's terrain-building time again! Old scratchbuild pieces are reinforced by a pair of new ones: promethuim tanks and a field cogitator.

Blog revival and plastic sisters of battle

It's been a full year since my last post. And what a year it has been! I funally moved into my own place with an orgy room and a workshop. Now my life is back on track and I'm finally back to my favourite hobby. In the meantime, 40k only got better. Games Workshop made a lot of good decisions lately, changing it's attitude towards the community and bringing back a lot of old stuff hobbyists used to only have wet dreams about. Some armies are yet to be brought back in all their glory though. But where GW stands back, others have a lot to offer. Have a look at miniatures I have here: Sisters of Battle from a promising russian studio - Grishnak models.

Death Angel first expanstions review


Some time ago I've already reviewed Space Hulk: Death Angel – a card version of famous Games Workshop boardgame. Not so long ago there appeared a reason to return to the topic – I got my hands on two first expansions for this Fantasy Flight Games card game: Mission Pack 1 and Marine Pack 1. So let me share my experience.

Medevac Centaur

Here's what you get if you take a Forgeworld model, add some bits and greenstuff and put in a few house rules after watching some WWII classics.

Command Chimera

It was never my intention to collect a mechanized Guard, but my company commander got so many medallions crimson by now I just had to get him a ride. I took the opportunity to make a couple of conversions to emphasize the command role of the vehicle - the turret is now equipped with additional radars, speakers and vox equipment. While I was at it I also fixed some parts of the model that looked way too toy-like for me, like lasgun arrays.

Guide to 40k bases


When it comes to scratch-building, kit-bashing and deep conversions it is often necessary to know a size of a base the finished model is supposed to be put on. While it wasn't a big problem up to a while ago, many recent GW models use unusual (and often unique) bases. Thus I've had a feeling that some king of basing guide could be useful. Maybe some fellow hobbyists might find this helpful as well. So let's see what each base is used for.

Mechanicus terrain

Recent Mechanicus release inspired me to do some scratch-building, so here are several pieces of industrial-themed terrain - a promethium filtration station and a pair of power generators.

TERCOS Squad


The summer basically begs me to do a bunch of cool stuff, and it often feels like a crime to sit at a modeling table. Still, I've recently devoted some time to expanding my army and finished a squad of Terphion Rangers vets.

Hunting Season - Xenos

Recently I couldn't help admiring some cool minis from an alternative manufacturers, and I've finally got around to acquiring several of them for use in 40k.
Without further ado - Inquisitor Atorax, Ordo Xenos. With his retinue:

Myth-busting 40k - part 3

It's about time to finish my war on 40k misconceptions. And the last but not least come myths about xenos races and followers of Ruinous Powers. A lot of notions regarding these factions often end up incorrect, because they are more commonly used as antagonists, which way too often results in their lore being left underdeveloped. A lot of myths regarding Chaos and xenos are also born when other factions' fans try to show their opponent's faction's inferiority, often twisting the lore in order to achieve this. In retaliation even more misconceptions are made, complicating the situation even further. So let's separate the real lore and the mistakes.
