138 - Mega Bastion Part 3: Now With Added Paint

138 - Mega Bastion Part 3: Now With Added Paint

There has been one project that has been staring back at me, languishing at the top of my display cabinet, that I chose to add to over the past couple of weeks. I grabbed the Mega Bastion off the shelf, gave it a quick dust down and grabbed some paint. This was also going to be a chance for to try out another of the stencil designs from Anarchy Models. Read on to see what I've been up to.

137 - Anarchy Models Stencils Review - Digi Camo

137 - Anarchy Models Stencils Review - Digi Camo

This is going to be a review of the new stencils that Anarchy Models brought out through their Kickstarter. I've only had a chance to use one design but I have got plans for the other stencil designs. I tried them out on the Nova-Rus Bear from Antenocitis Workshop, so read on for my view on the Digi Camo (No 2) stencils.

136 - Antenocitis Workshop Review on Talk Wargaming

136 - Antenocitis Workshop Review on Talk Wargaming

As part of the blog redesign, I've been doing a couple of articles for Talk Wargaming. The first of these was a reworded and shortened version of my Shadowsword magnetisation tutorial, which can be found here (and here is the link to the originals).

135 - The Magnetised Manticore (/Deathstrike) - S92 "Nubis" (Cloud)

135 - The Magnetised Manticore (/Deathstrike) - S92 "Nubis" (Cloud)

I'm not sure what's been going on, but I've managed to get several models finished within a few weeks of each other. This is good news as it means that unfinished models are no longer just gathering dust, they are finished (and gathering dust)!

And that dust gathering finished model is my other Manticore. It is the magnetised Manticore as detailed in post 133. And as you can probably guess from the title, this is a special tank.

134 - A Battle Report (kind of)

134 - A Battle Report (kind of)

I managed to get in a game of 5th Edition a few weeks ago. This was at a mates, and against him and another pal. The game was just a 3 way kill everything game. The point limit was 1500pts.

I took about 3000pts worth of my Imperial Guard, so I was able to choose a relatively diverse force. The other armies were Black Templars, led by Shaun, and Orks, led by Neil. We weren't being particularly strict when it came to the FOC, and just tried to pick units that looked like they might be able to kill each other.

133 - Magnets + Manticore = Fun Times

133 - Magnets + Manticore = Fun Times

So as well as the eBay rescued Manticore, I also had a brand new one which I've been working on for way too long. There is a reason for this though, and it involves my old friend - magnets!

I've already tried my hand at magnetising a Valkyrie and Shadowsword. Both of which were fairly successful. Next up, was to try my magnetic skills on a Manticore, so that it could be fielded as either a Manticore or a Deathstrike. So read on for my little explanation.

132 - Manticore Finished! S18 "Grisius" (Grey)

132 - Manticore Finished! S18 "Grisius" (Grey)

Well one of the Manticores is finished! And it wasn't the one that I'd started on ages ago. I've actually finished off the one from eBay. It's amazing how long it takes me to complete things sometimes - maybe my New Year's resolution should be to try to finish projects quicker? No chance!

131 - The Joy of Painting White

131 - The Joy of Painting White

Two weeks into the New Year and I feel like it's time to post something. First of all I hope that everyone had a good Christmas and New Year.

I was hoping to be able to post at least one of the finished Manticores, but I've just not had the enthusiasm to paint a lot. I have managed to get some painting done, and here is a little picture update.

130 - Double Trouble

130 - Double Trouble


Just a quick post today as we're now gearing up for Christmas. Aa well as the Hellhound that was on the Mystery Shelf of Unfinished Models, were two Manticore tanks. The first one had been started on a while ago and can be seen here and here. The second, was an eBay purchase and required a little bit of tidying up work, but nothing major. Today I set to work on them in a vain hope of getting them done by Christmas.

129 - ForgeWorld Bombard Unboxing

129 - ForgeWorld Bombard Unboxing

My birthday was a few weeks ago, and my better half got me a ForgeWorld Bombard (among many other things)! I have chosen to do my first unboxing article on this model. THis isn't going to be a video unboxing though. 1 - because I shudder at the thought of my recorded voice being released upon the internet, 2 - I have no tripod for my camera so the video will look like it's been shot Blair Witch style and 3 - I'm just not ready to try it yet. Instead, you get a photo unboxing - just minus the actual box.
