Friday Follow – Imperial Rebel Ork

This is my first (Hopefully of many!) Friday Follow. My intention is to share other blogs that I really enjoy.

Imperial Rebel Ork

Recently I’ve really been enjoying IRO’s Saint Kristos – Pirate Island posts. This will be a massive 12ft by 8ft table when it’s finished and boy.does it look good!

They’ve also got a cracking alternate reality Napoleonic game going on in Turnip28. Seriously talented in terrain making and painting, I often find myself staring at the terrain pictures for ages. Why not head over there and check out IRO.

Product Review – Terrain Crate; Mine Track

From Mantic Games

I participated in #hohohobbyvices this Christmas and received some great presents in my box! It was great fun preparing for my recipient and opening up my pressies and I’ll definitely look at doing it again next year.

Amongst the treasures I received a box of Mantic Games’ Terrain Crate – Mine Tracks.

£7.99 for 6 tracks!

They come in a bit of an over-engineered box with each piece of track in its own section in vacuum formed plastic insert, but the models themselves are crisply formed, and off sprue – so required no preparation work.

The finished set

I tend to so ‘simple’ for my scenery and so these followed the same principle. Undercoated in Army Painter Rat Fur (brown), then Agrax Earthshade and highlighted XV-88 for the wood. The rails were simply Leadbelcher, Nuln Oil, and Ironbreaker dry brush… dead easy and I’m happy with how they look.

I don’t know what I’ll do with these, but they’ll go into my pile of painted scenery for when I assemble another table worth for Age of Sigmar, or a more Agricultural world for Warhammer 40k

It’s a fun little kit, and very simple to paint.

Product Review – Thermic Plasma Regulators

I love scenery, especially for games I don’t play enough of – Kill Team and Necromunda, so I was very happy to pick up a box of Thermic Plasma Regulators from Games Workshop recently.

At £20 for 2 they are a little expensive, but may appear in a future Imperium Magazine so keep an eye out there

These are suitably silly terrain features but they do block line of sight to at least one model and have different levels on them. Perfect for a game of Kill Team. Plus you get to do cool source lighting (or if you are me, a bit naff source lighting). Terrain / Scenery is always fun for me because it is easy to paint, you can do as much or as little work on it as you like and – importantly – it can make the boards we play across look great.

So what did I do with my set:

Who doesn’t like Red & Blue!

Mine is a simple paint scheme with Leadbelcher and Ironbreaker for the silver, Mephiston Red for the red and Talassar Blue over a Corax White undercoat for the coil. There is also a little bit of highlighting following a tutorial from Duncan Roades when he was still working for GW.

They are great, and I hope to get them on the table top soon for my Genestealers to invade or my Guardsmen to hide behind!
