Warzone: Imperial Command Group finished!

Well we don't really have command groups in WZ:R... yet anyway. But I thought it would be a fitting name as these two guys will alternative as Warlord/Lord and NCO in my Imperial force.

Really nice to paint as always and soon I consider myself finished painting my Imperial for now, just need one more commander and Rist to be finished as well. 

The banner fell off because I was clumsy, I re glued it and it hold quite well but then I was clumsy yet again and then I could not get it to stick properly so I magnetized it instead. I thought it will hold better in transport anyways as standard bearers are always a paint to transport safely. 

Anyway they are.

Dwarf King's Quest Interview With Ronnie From Mantic Games

Check this out, a new Mantic Kickstarter that will start the 4th of August. A Mantic version of the old Hero Quest / Warhammer Quest games. Sounds really promising and I will most probably back this as soon as it starts.

Unboxing/Review: Warzone Resurrection Kickstarter Exclusive card set

Did find a little hard to call this a unboxing as there is no box! It's just a bag.. with cards... Well I went with the title anyway as the principle is the same.

So this is about the 30 card Exclusive card set you got in the KS if you participated at a certain level. Seems this won't be allowed in most tournaments, but it's nice to have none the less.

So what it is then? Well it's some chosen cards from across the different faction decks in one deck to be use with any faction. Some really nice cards as well and I especially like the resource cards. Well on to what we are dealing with here.

You get four Strategy cards, I especially like Aerial Barrage, Field resources and Seize the Initiative which I think can work really good in some lists.

I don't see any game breakers here really but all decent cards. 

We have some really decent cards here which can work wonders in some lists. One example is for a Blood Beret (with Plasma Carbines )  heavy Imperial list I would love to have the Thermo Instability card. And there's plenty of other useful cards here. 

These cards are also quite useful as you in Advanced games sometimes don't have enough with just your eight Starter Set resource cards. Well here's a good alternative then, the beautiful Exodus cards. 
 Well that's all. The firs that I thought when I first saw these cards is that they probably are best looking cards in layout and looks. Nice and clean and well I really like how they look. Other than that it is a nice addition and cool KS exclusive to have even if it won't be allowed in most tournaments. The Exodus cards though for example you can use how much you want and they are really nice cards to fill out your resource cards with.

Miniature Monday: Imperial Force progress and Trenchers

I have had these finished for a while now but did the basing just the other day so now they are totally finished. Awesome miniatures to paint just as the first five, I did some weapon swaps to get some more variation in poses and weapons. I also post two pictures to show you my progress of my Imperial Force, it's quite large now but you might see that I severely lacking Warlord choices, so that is what I will be focusing on for now and paint up 1 Imperial Commander, 1 Commander/NCO with Banner, Brigadier Rist and I'm also toying with the idea of doing a custom 'Hero of the Solar system' and if so I will do an Blood Beret commander with an upgraded Charger.

Conversions Corner: Daemon Prince of Nurgle

Conversions Corner is my posts where I show you.... yeah you guessed it. Conversions. They may be simple kit bashing sometimes or more complicated stuff, but I post something up when I think someone might find it interesting.

So on on to this conversions then. It will be my Daemon Prince of Nurgle for my WH Fantasy Warriors of Chaos army. I already have a more standard looking DP already so wanted to do something else with this one. So I bought the old Necron C'tan Shard called The Nightbringer. Really awesome model and always has been, I always wanted to do something with even if I don't want to collect Necrons.

So I made into a Nurgle DP, my version as well as the original sculpt really is something to look like death incarnate. I added wings from an old zombie dragon kit, shoulder pads from the Chaos Knight kit and shield and skull (on the scythe) from Wulfrik the Wanderer.

Did some minor greenstuff work here and there but the biggest work was to pin the model and the heavy parts (the body and wings are all metal as you can see). The base is mostly made up of a part of the Arcane Ruins set.

That is all really, not that difficult but I think it will look really nice when painted up and all. So do visit the blog again in the future to see the painted and finished model.

Warzone: Resurrection - Card protection, what to use?

Well this isn't something you need to have really for your games even if you do use Advance Rules and shuffling your decks. BUT! Your cards will take some damage when you have shuffled them a couple of times so if your like me and want to protect your cards, you have to get some card protection sleeves.

Fits very well as you can see. But putting several hundred cards in their sleeves is time consuming though. 
There's a lot of different brands out on the market and many different qualities and sizes. The WZ:R cards are a little odd size that isn't that common (when I measured I got 67 x 93 mm ) So what to use then, many suggested a quite common size of  70 x 110 mm but then you have to cut the excess part on top. I want to have sleeves on most of my cards so doing this on 500-600 cards was a no no for me.

I then found a post on the Prodos Forums about this and there a member called MiSiO gave the tip of these card sleeves. Swan Panasia Games makes sleeves in 70mm x 100mm so works very well for our WZ:R cards.They are thin though and I prefer thicker but couldn't find any. These work very well anyhow and you can shuffle your cards all you want and wont damage your cards.

I ordered these vi the link above, they were sent from the US so I did get some postage so I ordered seven bags of 150 sleeves. No problem at all ordering them, took like 5-6 days to arrive in my mailbox. It will have to do until Prodos starts to make their own :)

Already used three of the bags, so 600 cards is already sleeved!

Miniature Monday: X-Wing repainted!

One of the best things with X-Wing: The Miniatures Game is that the ships comes pre painted, for a lot of people anyway. For me this is still the case but as a painter I have to paint some, despite the original paintwork being okey at least.

I will not to any massive re paints though, I will not strip the paint (don't see the reason for this at all to be true) and will not spray over the whole miniature to start from scratch. Might do this later on with some ships but for the majority a little re painting will do the trick for me.

And that is what Iv'e done here. I used the original colors and shaded it and then highlighted it up to this result. Will upload a Tutorial on how I went on soon!

Not sure about how this looks, might need a redo for the engine lights. 

Comparison with an model without any repainting.
