The underground hanger. I wonder if the doors are positional? But just incase you were wondering how big the hanger is, we have another picture.

Looks like condors can get through it with ease. Possibly a few at a time. So for £40 your getting a nice big scenic piece that will look awesome and hopefully disrupt some LOS for your opponent.

Underground hangars are an extremely common feature on both the Cradle Worlds and the Colonies. Their primary purpose is to protect and store military assets beneath hundreds of feet of solid rock in much the same way as the concealed submarine bases of the 20th Century. In the past, these installations were built primarily to preserve the beauty of the Cradle Worlds from defilement by unsightly military structures. In the war-torn 27th Century, they are built by the UCM for their excellent defensive capabilities and to protect their personnel from harsh surface environments.

These installations usually feature large mechanical apertures which open these cavernous spaces to the surface, allowing aerial assets to strike forth or reach safety. Although these are large structures in themselves, they are merely a visible clue to the vast complex of hangars, storage facilities and living quarters lurking beneath the surface.

The gateways to the subterranean world have often been the focus for bloody battles during the Reconquest, as they can be choke points, supply gateways, entrances and escape routes to both enemy and friendly forces, depending on the mission and who has control of these crucial structures.

New scenarios to be used with this model will be coming soon. Although I for one am hoping if your enemy drives over it you can open it and send their squad smashing down to the bottom off a large cavern.

Finally completed

Well it has taken a while but finally I have completed my Deadzone collection of rules and supplements when this dropped through the door.

Nexus PSI, is a campaign the follows team Six Alpha as they set out to recover a strange alien artifact from the surface of Nexus Psi, little did they know the horrors that waited for them.

The book is split into three parts, Campaign Rules, Bottlezone: Nexus Psi, and a Faction Focus. Although I wouldn’t class the book as essential. It is a good read and a new campaign and more ‘fluff’ is never to be sneezed at.

Painted wargaming terrain part three

The Bovine Overlord

This is the final bit of free terrain I have sitting around from event packs at the moment; the other two so far are posted here and here.  I believe it is from Oshiro Model Terrain’s Japanese range.  I have no idea what Japanese houses of this period (whenever that is) should look like, and anyway I’m not really playing any games that would benefit from such authenticity, so I just painted it up as I saw fit.  The drab colours are purposeful to some extent; I want the terrain to be the background to the miniatures and not the other way around.  Actually once I’d applied the paint it occurred to me that this looked more like a Tudor house such as are still around in parts of the UK; that is also a coincidence.

I had to!

Ok so it’s 00:10 that’s 10 minutes past midnight GMT so if my writing is slightly more appalling than usual I apologise. The spell checker on my phone is going into melt down.

Why am I posting at crazy o’clock? Two words ‘Exploding Kittens

This Kickstarter has just gone phenomenal it’s a card version off Russian roulette no bullets just comically exploding kittens.

I am not sure what the pull towards this game is but I want to try it I want to review it. I just want to laugh so hard I cry.

Why not join in place a pledge and sit back and wait for the postman to deliver some hilarity in a box.

An Ancient Evil Reawakens

For millennia Necron dynasties ruled the galaxy, they ruled their people with an iron fist and crushed any who dared move against them. Now, as they rise from their hibernation, hundreds of dynasties awaken with ambitions to usher in a new age of Necron dominion.

The Necron Dynasty web bundle contains 90 Citadel miniatures, including: 1 Necron Overlord, 40 Necron Warriors, 20 Immortals, 10 Canoptek Scarab Swarms, 2 Ghost Arks, 5 Lychguard, 1Triarch Stalker, 3 Canoptek Wraiths, 1 Annihilation Barge, 3 Tomb Blades, 2 Night Scythes and 2 Monoliths.

It is also supplied with fourteen 40mm round bases, three large flying bases, three small flying bases, two large oval bases, and fifty 25mm round bases and forty-six 32mm round bases to give you the choice of how you want to base your miniatures. 

Due to ship at the end of January.

So the rumours were true, let’s hope this means a new Dark Angels codex is on the cards as well.

Warbands

Developed and published by Black Wasp Games Warbands is heading to next month with the aim of raising enough money to push out thier first game. I have a copy of the rulebook which I will be looking at over the weekend but yesterday Black Wasp Games took to facebook to answer some questions from potential backers from that question and answer session I give you the following article.

With a gaming pedigree that goes back to age 6 and covers formats such as Dungeons and Dragons, Infinity, Malifuax and the oblgatiry Games Workshop, Warhammer Fantasy and 40,000, they discovered their passion for the setting, Fantasy, so with that done they began taking the bits that worked and that they liked from each game system and put it together to make a new system, over the last year they haev filled out their system smoothed over the problems and began turning it into Warbands.

Tha basic boxed game comes with the ‘standard’ package that is enough for two people to have a good game and get cracking, this ‘starter’ package will be 11 ‘exclusive’ kickstarter models and also Black Wasp will be planning to release a new miniature each month, this coupled with the planned massive amounts of customisation, for class types armour varients and weapon combos, could lead to some very nice modelling and conversion oppurtunities.

Whilst being slightly coy about it when asked about expansions and the future direction of the game and company I was told that they would like to be still working on it in 20 years time, so the designers must se this having a lot off leg room to say that, campaign rules are already in the pipeline and beta versions should be ready to go in the first wave off Starter sets, with new models, races and professions already being eyed up, there is at current time no plans to start going down the route of sculpting creatures and the focus is more on warbands fighting each other with ten scenarios in the rulebook at the moment and more planned yet again.

Heroes and Warlords will feature but will be heavily balanced so that players can’t rely on the ;who ever has the biggest and shiniest new toy’ to win.

All in this looks very much like being a nicely well rounded game where luck and decisions will play a bigger part off winning rather than who has the ‘shiniest’ new toy.

I look forward to keeping up with this one and if they can time it properly so that its not on kickstarter the same time as another planned backing then I may just have to have a go with this one.

Deredeo Pattern Dreadnaught up for pre order

The Deredeo pattern Dreadnought is a dedicated heavy support frame, though it shares many core components and systems with the more general assault-based Contemptor class. Initially deployed in limited numbers to each of the Legions due to difficulties in its manufacture, its durability and firepower saw demand for the Deredeo pattern dramatically increase after the outbreak of the Horus Heresy.

The Deredeo Pattern Dreadnought is a multi-part resin kit which includes the sarcophagus-mounted heavy bolters or heavy flamer options and an 80mm plastic base. This model is available to pre-order now and will be despatched from Friday January 30th. Experimental rules using the Deredeo Pattern Dreadnought in games of Warhammer 40,000 and the Horus Heresy can be found

The whole kit which will set you back by £66 can be added to any Codex Space Marine, Codex Dark Angels or Codex Blood Angels force which I pressume means that the Sons of Fenris dont get a look in.
