Tac Squad 1 - painting progress

FIRST UP.  I'll be at Warhammer World on Friday, from around lunchtime till 3pm.  If anyone is around and can make it, it would be fantastic to meet some of the fellow bloggers (as yet again I can't go to BlogWars as for the third time in a row its on a weekend I'm already booked for).  I'm also hoping to add some new units to my growing One Force what with Forgeworld on tap in the shop there.

Tac Squad painting update

Starting to get there with these guys, finished building almost all the parts for the first squad (Mk II armour).  So far I have 10 figures, all bodies built, 10 regular and 10 jump backpacks, and some parts to make a couple of commander variants.

6th Edition impressions

Back at the start of the year, I vowed to try and post once a week, I've missed that weekly posting goal as of last week, but I'll have to try and make up for that with 2 this week.   As I haven't been up to too much hobby wise recently, the first is going to be about my impressions of the new kid on the block, 6th edition.

First up, I'll say I definitely like it, I've only managed to get in 2 games but they've been good fun, and there's a lot of new subtleties to the game to get your head around.  Its also nice that (at least so far), there seems to be a bit more of a narrative to games with all the new rules centred around characters.

Magnetising self-help

I'm a little late with my post today, but here it is.

There are loads of posts out there on the benefits and ways to magnetise your models.  I'm not going to try and repeat anything in these as its pointless, instead I'll try and point you to a few that I've taken inspiration from in the past:  Magnetising PredatorValkyrieSpeeder basesScreaming BellTervigon

What I'd like to add, is a little tool I've created for myself, to help me keep my polarities aligned correctly, so that no matter when I've magnetised things, they should always be interchangeable from whatever range I've used.

Verminous Tide - more Clanrats

Its been a while since I posted anything for my Skaven, mostly because I haven't done too much for them.  I have played my first ever Warhammer game, a loss against the new Empire, but the glaring hole in my army was the lack of numbers.  So, I've painted up my second IoB set of clanrats as you can see here, and also purchased nearly 50 more clanrats to bolster the numbers.  They are all in bits at the moment though, so they'll be a while coming.
