Back to ogres.

Guts, the Black Swordsogre.
I've had time to look over ogres again and after deliberating I feel as if I've come across a few minor points that warrant attention with ogres.

A very, very quick glance at the new Space Marine book

This is assuming you've read the book yourself and know what everything's stats are. This is also a very quick glance; things will probably be wrong in time when the book is properly tested.

Special rules: Combat Squads are always great. Loss of Ultramarine Combat Tactics is going to be unusual to adapt to.

Warlord Table: Angel is useless, The Imperium's Sword is average, Storm of Fire is pretty nice, Rites of War is quite good, Iron Resolve is only good if your HQ is going into close combat regularly enough, Champion of Humanity is eh. Probably better to go with BRB warlord traits if you can.

The Swarmlord has arrived.

 I painted a Swarmlord.

 That's pretty much it, purely a post on this Swarmlord. One of my best figures to date.

Ice Nids!

This Hive Fleet employs the dreaded Isengard Trolls to break sieges.
Hey guys. Been slightly inactive again. I've gone back to Tyranids and this is my new colour scheme.

Things are looking great so far. I also traded in about £126~ of sealed boxes I never got around to opening for a Hive Tyrant/Swarmlord kit, 2 Tervigons and 2 boxes of gargoyles. Fun times. They're being built with zeal as we speak.

There's also an Isengard Troll because I've gotten into the Hobbit hame recently.

Stay tuned!

The Heldrake is finally done.


It took a while but I finally managed to finish off my Heldrake. Needless to say I'm very pleased with how it came out. My main issue now is, how the hell am I supposed to transport this thing about?! The wings are stupidly wide.

Anyway, there's 5 pictures. Open up the blog post and have a look.

I'm still alive.

In the past few weeks my internet connection has been awful but I'm still here.

Slowly, my Chaos Space Marines are being painted. With every post I'll give an update on how they're doing. I'll also write out a quick CSM review to let you know what stuff can work and what can't.

Chaos Spawn for Boons: Chilling unbased on my desk.
Daemon Prince for Boons: Done!

Warpsmith: Unbased.
Sorcerer: Unbased - Base is completed.

Terminator Unit 1: Unbased, stuck to wrong bases.
Terminator Unit 1: Sprues.

Chaos Space Marine Unit 1: Done!
Chaos Space Marine Unit 2: Sprues, no Rhino.
Cultist unit 1 and 2: DON'T EXIST HAHA.

Heldrake 1: Working on left wing, rest done.
Heldrake 2: Still waiting to be bought.
Chaos Bikes: NOPE

Maulerfiend 1: Body, legs and base to be done.
Maulerfiend 2: Maulerfiend 1 isn't done, this sure as hell won't be.
Forgefiend: Neither is this.

Right now I'm working on the Heldrake so finger's crossed that it'll be done within the next 2 days. Blame work for that. 

More to come I promise.

Games Day 2013!

Games Day 2012, where I got my hand shaked by the man who wrote Necrons.
Hey folks.

This post is a bit short notice but I'm going to be heading to Games Day 2013 in England on Sunday. It's going to be a pretty cool event as it won't focus on Dreadfleet and more about Chaos, I reckon.

Anyway, the more important details is that you might be going and I definitely will. What I need to do is say hi to you folks! People who read Melta Martini and 3++ is the new black need to say hi to me. You can ask me questions, ask me why I can't write any useful articles, bitch at me about the main site being down, whatever.

I would also like some questions to ask the Games Workshop crew. Anything friendly, a genuine question, nothing too hostile or venom-dripping. Nothing for Robin Cruddace, I'm not even going to speak to him until Tyranids is taken from his hands.

Post comments in general or to specific authors in the comments and I'll reroute them to the designated people.

Other than entering Golden Daemon, failing to get past the first round and spending half my monthly wages in the Forgeworld store, I'm getting my books signed. On top of that I'll be wearing a 3++ is the new black white shirt with It's Cinematic! on the back, with a Chaos wristband. I wear glasses, if you ask if I'm Saramoff from 3++ and I try to shake your hand and act like I'm really enthusiastic, it's me. I'm genuinely an enthusiastic guy.

So what do you want Saramoff to ask the devs? Are you going to be there?
