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.

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.

Three tank-men and a dog

I took a little more time with my second Demolisher kit and converted it into the Forgeworld's Destroyer. Changing the overall profile of the model and making it look less like a standard Russ obviously took some time, but ended up being an interesting challenge for me.

Imperial landing pads

My gaming table still needs more terrain so here goes. Now it's pair of scratchbuilt imperial landing pads:

Two Hydras and a Manticore

Surely, it would be a shame to put the various uses of the Chimera chassis to waste, so I've put together several more weapon options to use on the base of my Wyverns:

Terphion Wyverns

My army is slowly heading towards completion. Now it's big guns' time:

The original Wyvern kit looked strange from day one. Making a new tank just by taking the barrels off the old Hydra? Not cool. However, since the bygone days of Final Liberation I have a fancy towards imperial Thudd Guns and after a while I saw an opportunity for a conversion here. After being put together, stormshard mortars look similar to the quad launcher which seems much nicer to me. The tank also doesn't resemble the Hydra that much anymore, which is also a good thing.
