A while ago I started collecting Coffee cans with a view of turning them into Macro Cannon Shells for a Zone Mortalis Terrain piece.
These shells will be added to a vertical Shell Conveyor Chain system which seemingly comes out of a Zone Mortalis deck and into the ceiling above.

As promised in my last post I am back to show you my recently completed Ork Battlewagon!
It's an incredible model and was really enjoyable to paint.
Definitely time consuming though as I sprayed the model with Leadbelcher spray before applying a few thinned down layers of Ceramite White, so the Yriel Yellow would go down easily.
I didn't put much thought into the weapon configuration, however, since seeing some reviews of the new codex I will likely be doing a second Bonebreaka variant, so this one can be used as a Battlewagon or Gunwagon.
This Battlewagon will transport my Warboss Gorzod Ironbrakah, his Painboy Zorbaz Bonestitcha and his Meganobz bodyguard.
The Meganobz and the Painboy will be ready to post up soon as well as another Killa Kan.
I do also think a Big Mek with a KFF will be needed to help protect this vehicle, however, it now looks like I may have to go for one in mega armour as the standard Big Mek isn't in the codex anymore!
Well I hope you like it, thanks to the book being released my painting has picked up again for the orks.
Keep an eye out for the Meganobz in the not too distant future!

The story has changed a bit from the original Trenchcoat sporting chaps.
They do look quite sinister and slightly Genestealer cult.
I say it is a welcome change, and I would be tempted to use some of these guys for Imperial Starship crews too.
Great sculpts as always with the Specialist Games lot. Love the Gunslinger too.
A new compiled Rulebook too. Definitely worth getting :)

The unfortunate thing about the dataslates is that cards can get knocked and pegs can be jarred whilst you are taking your Maniple for a walk. This resolves the card issue immediately.
Mini Euro Game Play Card Sleeves... https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B002BH3J58?ref=yo_pop_ma_swf
Wait for them to be delivered. . .
Mark also showed me how he magnetised the Pegs. I hope to get to this too soon.

He was helpful enough to give me a crash course in how to print with the printer. It’s relatively straight forward once you have the STL file of the item you want to print. Thankfully I am quite experienced in 3D CAD programs, so hopefully it won’t be long before I start my first few sculpts.

Canticum Malitae and Seething Hunter are coming on well and have the same styles and iconography as their 28mm sisters (the ones below have had their Carapace oil washed and buffed)
My first two Reavers are all but complete too. Still waiting for the new transfers so I can take the further.
Hopefully not much longer :)

With it being Orktober I'm back to show you how I have been getting along with my 40K Orks.
First up, it's the Gretchin!
Although I know they are not the best unit to take in games, I'll likely be taking them as a fluffy option.
The other reason for doing this unit is obviously because they're cool models and didn't take too long to paint in the grand scheme of things.
My Ork army has now reached around 1000 points, so I will be showing you each unit in a post over the coming weeks or so.
I have however recently finished a rather large ork contraption that i'll show you next time!
Thanks for reading,

Here is a quick look at and our initial impressions of the new Shadespire, Nightvault that games workshop were kind enough to send us.
Great standalone boards, and also perfect to add to the existing boards.
All the new tokens
The 2 new warbands.
The Thorns of the Briar Queen
Games Workshop have continued with making top quality models for Shadespire, each packed with their own character, and very easy to build. The exciting thing for me is the options to use these in bigger battles, and also in skirmish.
A sample of the new Shadespire novel, The Mirrored City.
Last but not least, the rulebook.
This new edition comes with the introduction of Magic. This adds an exciting new dimension for the game, and they do not look overpowered.
There is a fantastic new video from Warhammer TV which really goes into the basics of the game https://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=youtu.be&v=Kqe6pcxQPFY
In conclusion, I think this is a really good box to get. Great value for money, and will be perfect for new and existing players. I am excited to see how the new magic will effect the meta of the game.

Today I would like to share with you all a quick review of the Warhammer card game by Play Fusion, Champions.
Champions is a deck building card game, where the players take command of one of the 4 Grand Alliances and battle it out against their opponent.
The best place to start, is to choose which Grand Alliance you wish to play, and then buy the corresponding Campaign deck. Then, using these cards and any additional ones you obtain from booster packs if you wish, you start to build your deck.
The aim of the game is to cause enough damage to your opponent by using abilities or spells, so that their life counter is reduced to zero. There is a huge amount of tactics involved with this game, ranging from what cards you choose to build your deck with, and even the positions you wish to place your champions.
You can easily complete 2-3 games in an hour, making this a perfect game to play when you are strapped for time. Not only that, but there is also a Warhammer AOS Champions app available to enhance your gaming experience.
On the app, you can purchase digital cards or scan in your existing cards. Then, you can add friends using their username, and you can play against them, regardless of where you are. You can also find random opponents online to play against as well. I think this will be perfect for fine tuning your deck against a wide variety of opponents in preparation for an event/tournament.
Overall, I think this is a very solid game, that will only get more popular as more people get into it.
Let me know if you have played the game, and your thoughts on it in the comments down below.
Take care :-)
