Since I’ve begun working on a Raven Guard force I decided I needed a good warlord to lead it. The Ravens have Shadow Captains in that position and Games Workshop does offer a single model in fine cast on their site. While Shadow Captain Shrike is fairly cool looking, I deplore fine cast and knew I could do better. Scavenging from my bit box and a few specific parts orders helped me custom build my perfect warlord.
I arrived home today to discover that my package from this Kickstarter had arrived unexpectedly. Having ripped into the package and played with the many bits and bobs I thought all of you good people out there might find it an interesting addition to their war gaming tables. It arrived incredibly quickly, so fast in fact that opening the package smelled like a campfire.
We’ve been discussing improving the narrative of our games, I mostly play scenario type missions and I think part of the fun is crafting a story around it.
Here are a list of things helpful for forging a narrative about a mission.
Before the mission
- Who is your army
- Where is your army
- Why is your army there
- Who is leading your army
- Plan for the mission
After the mission
- Significant events in the battle (turning points, major surprises, upsets).
- Heroic units (lone guardsman wiped a squad of charging Tau in a sweeping advance, Guardian squad bogging a squad of assault terminators for 3 turns)
- Your armies interpretation of the outcome (da ‘umies wiped out all m’boyz they’z stronger den we thought just ‘ow we like it).
About two months ago I reviewed the Dreamforge APC and mentioned that I would be converting it into an Ork Trukk. It has finally made its way through my little chop shop ready to wreak havoc on anyone that gets in its path. In the hands of a Mek it has gained plenty of extra armor plates, a wrecking ball, and painted red for maximum destruction.
