Battle Report: Warhammer 40k – Blood Angels vs Dark Angels (1500 points)

It’s been some time since the last battle report I wrote and I must say, I really missed that:). The next battle – Warhammer 40000 Blood Angels vs Jan’s Dark Angles 1500 points was part of our local narrative campaign – Fading Suns of Corinth Sector. First of the series of 6 to 8 battles. The story so far: Ancient race of Necrons set up their mysterious machinery that require massive amounts of power. Star after star was drained of the energy to fuel up the device. Mystery of fading  suns of Corinth caught attention of wise men from all over Empire. Several Space Marines chapters were sent to investigate. Greenskins followed them, hoping for  good fight…and Chaos… they have their own secret agenda there… Scenario My Blood Angels faced Dark Angels in the first turn of the campaign. 1500 points. Battle Forged Armies. Blood Angels defend in this battle. 50% of the army set up normally in the deployment zone. Second half is in the reserves and enter form the second turn with usual …

Reverend Custodier of Infinity

Settled for a while now. It’s been a month already since I got back from Asia and it’s starting to be some king of fading memory. It’s always like that – sitting in Poland, hidden in my room with the cup of tea in my hand. Watching the rain outside, and talking to myself: what the hell am I doing here? Cold, wet and grey. My everlasting Polish impression. I miss bright colours and sunny hot days. Remind me, why exactly I returned here? Oh, wait I remember – one of the main reasons I’m here again is that I’m miniatures freak. I can’t be apart from them for too long or I go crazy (friends and family are also here:). So, Poland again. …but I have few more stuff I painted in Thailand. Like this Reverend Custodier model for Nomads, Infinity. Painted her some time ago in my last days on Koh Chang, but so far I had no opportunity to shoot proper photos and write a few things about her. It’s my second …

Big decision…

This is going to be big step for me. For the last few months, I was working hard as part time/hobby miniatures painter. Basicly, I spend almost all my free time on painting. My wife noticed, that sometimes when I wake up at 5 AM, I go straight to my desk and paint. I do not know what happened, but painting miniatures is at the moment the best thing I can imagine to do. The best way for relax. Actually, my wife recently started to meditate, and she tried to persuade me to it as well. After few sessions I realised, painting minis calm me down/ease my thoughts ten times more than these sessions.  This is what makes me happy the most – I practically skip movies and video games at the moment. Miniatures  – nothing else matters:). …so, I came to this big decision – I start to offer commission painting services. Few folks asked me if I do it. I tend to answer – sorry, I’m not good enough or simple – do …

Malifaux again – Poltergeist and Sorrows

I’m back for good. I tell you that. Workplace fully set up – paint station, modelling corner, light box. All on one table. That’s pretty selfish of me. Taking over the only table in all studio, but…well… my wife has quite high level of understanding for my hobby, and she doesn’t mind at all. This table will be my workstation for next 7 months. We have rent contract until October 21st, 2016. For the first time, since few years, when we are back to Europe in spring, we don’t have any fixed plans for autumn/winter season. Last year we knew, we are going to Australia/Asia, but this year is big unknown. Many plans in our heads, but nothing certain. So, 7 months in one place. It means a little break from Game of Travel usual activity and time for ‘settle down’ mode. There will be more battle reports, some interviews and probably the same number of models show posts. Of course, I won’t be visiting so many cool places like during last few months, but …

To Empire, or not to Empire? This is the question…

Good question indeed. …but let me explain. Few months ago I grabbed awesome bargain for some miniatures for Warhammer Empire. It’s was basicly a steal, so I couldn’t resist. I purchased then: 2 Plastic Wizards, Unit of Empire Knights and Warrior Priest. That was 100% impulse purchase. No time to think – the deal was so cheap, I had to act quick. So, I did… …and what next? Should I expand this basics to the level that I’ll have actual army? Or just paint this few minis for fun and leave them as they are. Or, on the other hand, I could sell these minis after I paint them on Ebay. So, Empire or not to Empire? To be honest, I’m not sure if I’m able to collect one more army. I’m already overworked with painting minis. Yeah, this is not a big problem, cause I like to paint. The thing is, my collection grows in little bit dangerous pace. All of the sudden, I have too many unpainted miniatures and if I don’t resist …

The Pestilens is spreading!

Oh, that was precious time in Thailand. Well, in Asia in general. I had huge doze of fun here and for sure I’m going to miss whole region – my favourite Malaysia, but also other countries. I plan to get back here, not in near future, but probably in about 2 years I want to visit this area again. Right now – destination Warsaw, Poland and I’m going to settle down there for few months. Exactly like one year before, when I got back from Central America. …but for now, I’m still in Thailand. Last 5 days. And I have few miniatures already painted, photographed and ready to be presented here. First mini from this new batch, is Skaven Plague Priest for Warhammer Fantasy Battle (how to tell a difference between WHFB and Age of Sigmar these days? It’s simple – if the base is squared – it’s WHFB, and if it’s round – it’s AoS ;P ). The model comes from the plastic kit Screaming Bell/Plague Furnace, that provides two assembling options. I’ve decided …

Reverend Moira aka what is wrong with Infinity models?

Another Infinity models is ready. This time – rather controversial miniature. Reverend Moira. Corvus Belli miniatures are kept in certain aesthetics. Some people like to see them as opposition or alternative to Games Workshop models. Well, in many ways I agree with that opinion – Infinity with all graphical concept refer to good old and very popular manga style. When you visit Corvus Belli web page or take a look inside any of books – you’ll get the idea. The future offered in Infinity is somewhat different than dark grim 41st Millennium of Warhammer. Infinity’s is rather plastic and clean. Full of  pretty girls and handsome boys. It looks little bit like pop video – where everything is so clean and shiny. Even war on distant planets;). Please, don’t get me wrong – I love Infinity miniatures. For me they are the best for making break from any of GW models. Infinity are different, but great to paint. Demanding, but rewarding. My Nomads Bakunin faction is slowly growing – many minis left to paint, and …
