Lovely model, and now all my Vets have Priests again.

Just a shame I wasn't able to buy him by giving money to the company that made him, but that’s a topic for another post..

Preparing for a Narrative game..

That should already have happened by the time this posts.

 DSC_8582

The weekend of the 12th should see a few people descend to play a game at Casa moi.. with a (gasp) story .. of sorts.

But in order to be ready for this a new table was required, and I thought I would take the opportunity in light of some of the 7th ed changes to revamp things and rationalise down to a single gaming board solution (well except for the big sculptural one, oh and the smaller WW2 one.. )

What has been constructed, reinforced, flocked and painted (in a single day I might add, with the able assistance of my nemesis who never posts on his blog :)) is as you see above, two 4x4 foot boards, and two 4x2 foot boards. this allows lots of combos to be built, from 2x 4x6 boards, to a single 4x8, a 4x12, a 6x8 etc etc..

We also set about some larger scale terrain to work with the board,

Some natural terrain features

A ship that didn't quite make it to the aforementioned imperial outpost

Another natural hill.

These are all “in paint” at time of writing and will hopefully be done by the time of the game they are looking good so far, and this whole thing should work well with the buildings and barricades I already have.

There is one point arising from all this, and I think the ultimate answer is “Yes”, but given that I can now, thanks to 7th ed, play all my imperial forces together with impunity, and that I am rationalising down to a single board set the question is..

Am I really uptight enough about things looking “right”, that I am considering rebasing my space wolves to be without snow so that they can stand next to the guard on this board and not look “wrong”?

I have mentioned before that I think something may be wrong with me, yes? :)

Big Guns and Bastions gribblies

 

DSC_8580

Short post today just to show off the two gribblies that come with the bastion kit, alongside the one gun from the defence line and say that I really do like these pieces, and the bastion itself, If you're short of terrain for your table you could do a lot worse,

These will see duty as objectives, but also as emplacements, and possibly also occasionally be taken as part of my guard army. tres versatile!

Militarum Tempestus / Kasrkin Kitbashes

 

DSC_8572

I finished the last few guys who round out my storm troopers to three viable squads, and with a commissar thrown in that’s a viable force org, so they can be a totally scoring allied detachment in 7th, as opposed to non scoring elites in 6th. That’s got to be good :)

Sergeant Mctavish above sports a fine crop of facial fuzz, and leads a squad on his won with meltas.

DSC_8567 

Sergeant Morse leads a plasma squad, brave men, higher turnover that the suicide melta squads cos you know, the melting.

Here they are all Mustered in their squads with their metal compatriots, I think it’s a decent fit.
