Harlies at Scottish Take Over 4

Just back from the Scottish Take Over 4. This is the second event I’ve been to up in Elgin, and it didn’t disappoint. I went up with a couple of friends and we recorded our usual 40k Road Trip for the podcast. You[ll hear it shortly no doubt. These are the more detailed bat reps, and some thoughts on how my list performed.

I took the same list as I took to Rapid Fire the Weekend before. For convenience it was

Harlequins at Rapid Fire 2018 – Tournament Report

I’m just back from Rapid Fire, one of the longest running tournaments in Scotland. I think it’s maybe the 10th year in a row I’ve been? As always Stirling Wargamers put on a great event in their very impressive new premises, and I had a blast.

I took Harlies (surprise surprise), eager to see how the changes in the FAQ effected them. My list

House Ordos Project Blog – Mission 12

Greetings fans of the Executrix!

If you are reading this post, i’m assuming that you have followed the journey of building this army from the start. If that’s the case (and even if it’s not), thank you SO much for following this journey. It’s been an absolute pleasure to share this experience on the website, and I hope that you’ve enjoyed following it along the way.

I feel like I have learned so much, and tried so many things:

  • Magnetising
  • Stripping Paint
  • Basing Techniques
  • Plasma Glow Effects
  • Freehand Banner Work
  • Knowing how to thin my paints!
  • Transfer sealing

I’ve made this point a few times in the series, but I really want to express how bad a hobbyist I usually am! But If I can at least have an attempt at these techniques, you absolutely can give it a go as well! I hope in some small way my techniques and experiences have helped you (or at least shown you what to avoid)! read more

House Ordos Project Blog – Mission 11

Greetings fans of the Executrix!

In this installment I get the Castellan up to scratch like the rest of his Knightly Cohorts. I’m going to keep this article shorter, because many of the techniques I used to paint this model are ones that I have already discussed through painting both the Armiger and Questoris class knights. So firstly i’ll just show you some photos of the chassis from the painting process:

One difference in this model that I did want to draw attention to was the Plasma Decimator. Plasma guns are something that i’ve been scared of in the past. I usually just slap on one colour and call it finished. I went to check YouTube for a tutorial, and to my relief and surprise, there was a Duncan tutorial on just this subject! read more

Episode 77 – The Glasshammer GT

We catch up with Neil and Martijn, who attended last weekend’s Glasshammer open, and have a chat with them about the direction of the game!

House Ordos Project Blog – Mission 10

Greetings fans of the Executrix!

So with the colour scheme nailed, it was time to move onto painting the Questoris Knights. I painted both Knights together over the space of a few days, doing the same parts on each knight at the same time. This way I found it easier to maintain a level of consistency – not too different to the “production line” technique that i’ve seen applied to units such as Tactical Squads or the likes.

As mentioned in an earlier post, I had undercoated all of the components with a spray base-coat of Mechanicus Standard Grey: read more

At least the weekend wasn't without some reward (despite my utter failure in results)!

Well done to everyone who won awards, and thanks to everyone who voted me best sportsman at the Freedom GT (undoubtedly a massive sympathy vote!)
