Finished Models

So I have finally finished my “Krieg” tank, it’s commander and a guardsman to  give an idea of colour scheme.

The models were a joy to paint, required very little cleaning up and I was free of miscasts! The only gripe I have is the matching up of the Forge World parts to the Games Workshop parts, a lot of Green Stuff was used.

The Commissar tank commander is my Krieg version of Knight Commander Pask. The Krieg grenadier will be my stormtrooper unit. The Leman Russ will be wait for it….a Leman Russ 🙂

So here’s the pictures.

I’m pretty happy with them all, I am particularly proud of my tank commander.

Thanks for taking the time to have a read.

Battlefoam P.A.C.K 432 case, Pluck Loadout

Welcome to my second  case review for this blog.

As always it is a battlefoam case (I wouldn’t want to carry my models around in anything less!)

The case in mention this time is the Battlefoam P.A.C.K 432 and as the name suggests this case is claimed to be capable of carrying 432 models (I will not be able to verify this as I only play Malifaux and Warmachine, which even combined I will never have that many models).

My first impression of the case is once again, this is a BIG case with lots of storage space.

Before opening the case I am greeted with many, many pockets to store all my gaming aids in and enough room to carry ALL of my rulesbooks, tape measures, tokens, markers and cards in (it even has a bottle pocket on the side).

So I swiftly opened the bag to check where my models will be spending their travelling time. Low and behold on checking out the other side there is another pocket where I can store even more material. This got me thinking all this bag needs is a place for me to store my laptop and I would be set. After unzipping the model side I was pleased to see the great quality foam that comes with the Battlefoam name and lots of it!

So onto the bag itself;

The material used to make the bag seems very good and the embroidery is a nice touch (if a little gimmicky but then again lets be fair we all love little gimmicks).

The case is sturdy and seems very strong (I haven’t tested it for sturdiness…yet). There is more space than I expected in a bag this size, considering the amount of foam you have to play with.

The Foam;

  Small Pluck tray (25mm)for small based models

 The depth of the Medium Pluck tray (50mm)

will house most medium based models

Depth of large Pluck tray (75mm) will house

most of your large based models

All 180mm of foam (includes 3 x 5mm Toppers)

Storage;

The amount of storage you have to carry all your gaming aids is really good. You have ample room for everything you will want to take to your gaming night/event/weekend. You can easily carry your larger rules manuals, pocket rules manual, Marker, tokens, pencils and all your templates, it even has a bottle holder.

Card pouch side of the case

Bottle holder side of the case

Well that is all the good points covered so now onto the negatives.

 Price;

It is without a doubt an expensive case, of course you get what you pay for and that saying is very much proven with this (and any battlefoam bag). But that being said this case will be more expensive than the competitors.

 That really is the only bad point I can find with the bag and overall I would be willing to pay more for a bag of this quality and I will happily recommend the bags to anyone looking for a gaming case.

 It comes in two colours (black and Olive Green) and has the various loadouts you come to expect with battlefoam. Go and check out www.battlefoam.com for more information on all of their products.

 

Malifaux Battlefoam Case

Welcome to my first review post on here, this review is on the Battlefoam Malifaux case.

My first impressions was “wow this is a big case to carry my Malifaux around in!”

Upon opening the case I was greeted with space for everything I will take to a game with me, it has room for two fate decks, my glass soulstone beads, a tape measure, some pencils/pens and all of my rules manuals if I saw fit to take them all…not to mention all them templates for my neverborn 🙂

Well that was just one side I had opened. So I swiftly spun the bag round to check out the other side to see where my models will be spending their travelling time. Low and behold on checking out the other side there is another pocket where I can store even more material, this got me to thinking all this bag needs is a place for me to store my laptop and I would be set. After unzipping the model side I was pleased to see the great quality foam that comes with the Battlefoam name and lots of it! The only thing so far I think the bag is missing is tray toppers.

So onto the bag itself;

The material used to make the bag seems very good and the embroidery is a nice touch (if a little gimmicky but then again lets be fair we all love little gimmicks).

The case is sturdy and seems very strong (I haven’t tested it for sturdiness…yet). There is more space than I expected in a bag this size, considering the amount of foam you have to play with.

The Foam;

The two trays for the standard models are deep enough that you have no worries about pointed swords or any appendages that point out and the pluck foam tray is deep enough for the 50mm based models to fit comfortably in. As I said before though although the bottoms of the foam trays are stiff the case trays could benefit from toppers. The two standard sized trays will hold combined 88 models and then however you manage to pluck the other tray to accomodate your other larger models.

 

Two trays for standard sized 30mm based models

 

The depth of the trays (40mm) will house

any standard sized model

Pluck tray

 

Depth of Pluck tray (60mm) will house

most of your 40mm and 50mm based models

 Storage;

The amount of storage you have to carry all your gaming aids is really good. You have ample room for everything you will want to take to your gaming night/event/weekend. You can easily carry your larger rules manuals, pocket rules manual, Soulstone beads, tokens, pencils and all your templates.

 Toppers;

As the base foam of each tray is pretty stiff a tray topper could have been nice for each tray (although with that you would lose 5mm each tray topper) to protect each trays contents. These would be nice as standard with the cases although it is a minor thing in my eyes.

 They really are the only two bad points I can find with the bag and overall I would be willing to pay more for a bag of this quality and I will happily recommend the bags to anyone looking for a gaming case.

 It comes in three colours (black, red, and brown) and has the various loadouts you come to expect with battlefoam. Go and check out www.battlefoam.com for more information on all of their products.

Miniature Musings of a Bear

Welcome to more of Primarch on Primarch action in which we see which of the original 4 traitors is the daddy. After round 1 matches we have both Fulgrim and Horus up and running with wins.

Check out the above link for info about how I am doing the fights but for now let’s get straight into it:

Fulgrim VS Angron

This match was certainly a 30k version of Beauty VS the Beast!!!

As the brothers started to circle each other Fulgrim did his sword dance of moving and striking much to Angrons anger (I couldn’t think of anything better to use :P) however maybe too much prancing caused Fulgrim caught by some deceptive footwork by Angron! At the end of the first round Fulgrim had managed to find 2 weak points while Angron bludgeoned his way to a wound.

Moving into round 2 perhaps Fulgrim was caught out by…

Love this, my money is still on angron winning overall

Miniature Musings of a Bear

Simply this is some Primarch on Primarch action in which we see which of the original 4 traitors is the daddy. So let’s do this 😉

But first the set-up, it is going to be gladiator style so no charging bonuses, no ‘It Will Not Die’ rolls once you take a wound it stays there! Basically it will be who can hit hardest but maybe not the quickest! It will be a round-robin set-up so each Primarch will fight the 3 other Primarchs, there are to be no bending of the result the dice will decide the winners of each round. Once all matches have taken place hopefully we will see an out-and-out winner but if not I may do some sort of sudden death scenario 🙂

So let’s get started, but first some music…..

Fulgrim VS Mortarion

The first match in this will be the ‘Prefect of Perfect’ Fulgrim…

Forge World Only, Finally Paint to Resin

So I have finally managed to put paint to resin and have got then Turret and Dozer Blade painted and weathered!

The paint took to the resin fine (I did have it soaked for a few days beforehand).

I used Forge World’s own weathering powders and I have to say they were a joy to use and real easy to apply.

So here are some pictures of my work, all in all I’m pretty happy for a days work.

There is highlighting on here but it is very, very hard to see it using the iPhone camera, combined with the weathering and battle damage.
