Space Slann finished


I've finished the Space Slann I posted a work in progress shot of a while back, and taken a picture of them moving in file (to hide their numbers...) through a typical 40k jungle. I was aiming to take a picture that would have been at home in the Rogue Trader rulebook and I don't think it's too far off!

Slann, from space


Just a quick shot of a project that got half done a year or so back and has resurfaced (like such half finished hobby projects tend to). This is a work in progress shot of a set of Space Slann. I have all thirteen of the original twelve Space Slann (nudge nudge wink wink) already painted green, so I'm painting this second set blue so they can mingle and minimise the effect of the duplicates. If I'm lucky enough ever to start a third set maybe they'll be yellow!

And here's the leader, a conversion I did a while back.

Squats and Dominators (together at last)

I was at the Warhammer World Open Day this Monday gone, manning the Specialist Games stand, but as the event had something of an old school theme (celebrating Rogue Tracer's 30th anniversary year) I brought along some Squats, Space Slann and Zoats to show off next to Tony Cottrell's original Sabre Tank Hunter, Spartan Assault Carrier and other assorted old school treasure.

Before putting the Squats back in my display cabinet I thought I'd take a quick picture of them for the blog. I realised I should have brought my two Dominators (Tyranid Warriror concept models briefly sold via Mail Order as otherwise unknown aliens) along to the show too, so included them in this shot just for fun...

Rogue Trader reprint edition announced

My second post in a week, who'da thought it!

Just thought I'd share this post from the Warhammer World Facebook page, announcing a high-spec reprint of Rogue Trader. I've watched this project being worked on for many months and its great to see it finally out. The scans are top quality and the paper and covers are heavier stock than the original so it's a really solid, chunky book. Even though I have three copies already I'm getting this one too!

It's also great that a new generation of gamers interested in the older editions will have a chance to get hold of this slice of old school gaming history...

Happy Christmas from the Maelstrom!

Hello all!

Things have been very quiet on this blog, partly due to work commitments but largely because I managed to loose my login details as I rarely use this ID! I was even considering rebooting TftM as a Facebook page for a moment, but I've finally cracked it and reactivated my login!

Anyway, just thought I'd say Happy Christmas and if you're going to the Warhammer World Open Day on the 2nd Jan, see you there!

And here's an Inquisitor I kitbashed a few days ago!

Corehammer interview

Old school gamer types probably know about the Corehammer Blog, well, they were kind enough to ask me for an interview about my Horus Heresy Emperor's Children collection as the latest in their series on choosing and collecting a Horus Heresy force. Check it out at http://www.corehammer.com/choosing-a-legion-andy-hoare-of-tales-from-the-maelstrom-emperors-children/

Back from the Core

Not dead, working on a Squat army... More to follow (including a battle report against the lovely new plastic Genestealer cult!)
