House Malinax Knights progress 14/07/2018

Hi all. 

So after my false start I have finally got the armour plates all done. I have done it as per the original instructions that our reader Commussar Ibram Gaunt shared, and I am happier with the results. The reason why the lighter less colourful stage came before the more colourful step is that it was a pre-shading layer. I tested this by trying to miss Step 2 Completely and go to step 3 straight from step 1, but as you can see in the image below (on the right half of the Carapace) the effect is completely different from the Carapace on the right which I did steps 1-3 in order on). 


The colour actually looks a lot more like this in reality:


Colour scheme: 
Undercoat choas black

Metal:
- Basecoat leadbelcher
- wash 50:50 nuln oil and seraphim sepa

Armour plates:
- base tamiya flat earth
- layer wood deck tan
- layer 50:50 wood deck tan and desert yellow
- highlight previous layer with a little white scar

Armour trim:
- base 50:50 leadbelcher amd adeptus battle grey
- wash nuln oil
- drybrush edges leadbelcher
- stipple edges randomly with typhus corrosion 

Entire model
- wash 50:50 of nuln oil and seraphim sepia
- thin ryza rust using lahiam medium and flow into creases, joints and recesses as desired

So here is where I am up to with two Knights. 


Coming on slowly but surely.

Kill Team Drukhari


Hi all


Today we will be looking at one of my favourite forces in Kill Team, the Drukhari







Insidious, mobile and used to daring strikes behind enemy lines – the Drukhari are perfectly suited to the vicious close-quarters action of Kill Team.





In today’s Kill Team Focus, we’re looking at how the elite squads of the Dark Kin fight, from their main advantages, to the units they can use, to their sinister Tactics…







Like in Warhammer 40,000, the Drukhari benefit from some unique special rules with Combat Drugs to boost their Wyches and Power From Pain – which makes you stronger as the game goes on.





If you’re willing to take a few risks to win, you’ll love the Drukhari. An archetypal “glass cannon”, these guys have brutal shooting and deadly melee to make up for their relative defensive fragility.





Drukhari kits are designed to be compatible both with each other and a huge range of other models, making converting up a distinct-looking kill team easy.







Wyches are BRILLIANT in Kill Team. Fast enough to stay in cover, if you get these guys into combat, it’s pretty much game over for your foe thanks to their high number of attacks, invulnerable saves against melee, and deadly special weapons like razorflails.





Armed with cruel splinter rifles, Kabalites always wound their foes on a 4+, making them great against tougher kill teams. Special weapons like Dark Lances and Blasters, meanwhile, are among the most powerful in the game.









Often in Kill Team, you’ll have to choose between staying in cover and dashing out to make the best possible shot – with this Tactic, you’ll get to have it both ways!







Really need an armoured opponent dead? If you can beat their Leadership on 3D6, this Tactic will let you take them down.







If you’re looking for a shooting-focused Drukhari kill team, you’ll find everything you need in a set of Kabalite Warriors – likewise, for a melee-based force, Wyches are a great place to start. From there, literally any other Drukhari kit (any of them!) is packed with great bitz for converting and customising your kill team – so go wild!





Prefer hunting xenos to playing them? Check back tomorrow, when we’ll be looking at the Deathwatch – the original kill teams.


Really looking forward to seeing how these guys do as I already have a pretty large army. Just a shame there is only 2 units to choose from.


Let me know what you think in the comments down below


Take care :-)
