Warriors of Chaos: Daemon Prince of Tzeentch/Nurgle and more WIP photos

Hey another little WoC update. Working completely with WoC right now as I'm really psyched at getting a full army list ready for battle. And that should not be that hard with the low model count in the army. So one model that is soon finished is the Daemon Prince. And I have painted him as a Daemon Prince that I wanted to have the look as belonging to both Tzeentch and Nurgle, so I can have a model that looks cohesive with the rest of the army (with all the blue colours and what not) but also a hint of him being marked with the mark of Nurgle. My question to you, do you think it works? Or should I do something different?

Next up is my "Nurgle" Warriors with Halberds, same thing here really. The colour of the rest of the army but I also want it to look like it belongs to Nurgle. Does it work? Any other ideas?

For last some WIP photos of a Disc of Tzeentch using various Daemons bitz. This will be the mount for my BSB, c & c is very much welcome.

Review: White Dwarf Mars 2013

Once again I found a new issue of White Dwarf in the mail last Friday, and once again we will see the exact same formula as last month. With the same segments, same layout but with new miniatures to show off of course. So on to the review.

New Releases
This month it's a double release with Daemons of Chaos/Codex: Chaos Daemons for both Fantasy and 40k. And as a release I think it's all good, nice pictures showing the new miniatures with an strange daemon looking background that don't take away the focus from the actual model. The new models is nice as well, I especially like the Heralds, and I will probably add the Tzeentch Chariot to my collection of Warriors as I think I can do something with the bits in there. Also I think that the Tzeentch herald in that kit is the best looking miniature this month, love it with the classic looking moon shaped head.

We also get some Hobbit stuff this month, new Warriors of Erebor, Warriors of the Dale and some characters including Thror teh King of Erebor. Nice little wave of miniatures as well.

Among the other things we also get to see some screens from the new Warhammer Quest game for the iPad which is lookig really nice. Some info about the new books from Black Library and painted Forgeworld Deathshroud Terminators, Justaerin Terminators and Vulkite Caliver wearing marines. 

One thing that I miss, as I have in all of the "new" White Dwarf issues is better focus on the actual releases armybooks/codexes. We see some small pictures showing us some of pages from both books, but I want some more highlight on the new rules as well. Either in this section, in the Battle Report or some other article. But there is very little info about this I'm afraid.

Painting and Modelling
Another Space Marine army in this month's Army of the Month, a little boring I might think even if the Lamenters/Greyknight army do look really good, we also get to see three Titan Warhounds among with more Forgeworld stuff. Blanchetsu shows us yet another John Blanche inspired Warband and I start to wonder how many Inquistorial Warbands they will show us in this segment.

Hall of Fame shows us the Dark Eldar Urien Rakarth made by Juan Diaz. In this month's Parade ground they continue with part three of Golden Demon 2012 winners from the UK. A lot of nice mini's but I don't know, it feels a little boring with it taking up all the Parade ground space which is one of my favourite segments. We get to see some converted Ork Fighta Bommers on the Kit Bash segment, haven't we had Ork Bommers in this segment already? In the Battlegrounds section we get to see some more UK Armies of Parade entries, including and Empire army, Tau, Orks and Imperial Fists. 

And now we get to the Paint Splatter section. Sometimes I have actually gotten some good advice from this segment, not this time though and I actually think they are really bad even. For example the Adam Troke's easy peasy take on how to pant the four different lesser Daemons. Well the end result looks horrendous and will probably do as maybe low quality tabletop standard but heck, do anyone actually need to be taught these extremely simple painting techniques? Maybe, and I will forgive it if we at least got some more advanced tips as well but no, we don't get that. Matt Hudson is showing us how he paints his Yellow Imperial Fists using a Spray gun and this tutorial is at least usable. This segment has a lot of potential and I hope they will make a better job with it in the future. 

Rules and Fluff
I might as well delete this headline in my WD reviews as there are pretty much non. May be a little fluff here and there but no actual articles. As Iv'e stated before in this review we don't get to see much about the rules for the new Daemons either.

No Rivals article this month but an Battle Report, and as usual it's the new release army and as it's an 40k report this month they of course go up against Space Marines. As the rest goes it follows the exact formula of the other Battle Reports and my thoughts about is the same. I want something more, bigger pictures, a narrative maybe? showing us more of the new rules and info about the new units. Big potential to make better battle reports hopefully it will happen soon rather than later.

The other stuff...
In 'This month in' which is probably the most interesting part of the magazine now. Mostly because this particluar segment isn't all the same all the time. And from the WD team we see some painted minis and also proclaims that they will start an Hobby Challange and paint up a force each and played one game with them until next month. From the design studio we get to see some really early concept art for the four chaos gods by John Blanche, these sketches has then defined the take of the four Chaos powers. We then see some images with the new models released and some words from the creators, my favourite here is the picture with the Tzeentch Herald and a map of the Realm of Chaos.

From Forgeworld we get to see some new miniatures we haven't seen before, from FF we get to see the Thallax for the Mechanicum Orde Reductor and a Legion Reconnaissance Squad Marine. Also a small pic with one of my favourite chapters the Minotaurs, more of these please! We get to see some really interesting stuff from WH Forge as well, two WIP Orc command models, a Warboss/Boss and a BSB with Wyvern wings as a banner, both looking really great. We also get to see a new Battle board section similar to the ones for Necrons, this one seems to go well with Empire or Dwarfs.

From Black Library we get some words from Ben Counter, writer of the new book Van Horstman. Jervis talks about the most important rule (roll a dice to resolve situations) and Jeremy talks about his personal hobby hates.

Well, this issue is pretty much as the other ones and that is the most boring part. There aren't enough things in the magazine that makes it worth while to go back and check up. The painting tutorials is bad, the Battle Report could be so much better and there isn't enough useful articles in here. I would have given this issue the same rating as the last one, but I thought the Painting Splatter part of this month was so bad so I give a minus 0.5 for that so this issue comes out at.

Rating: 2 out of 5

WARZONE: Kickstarter reaches £50k goal

Haven't reported on how it is going with the Warzone: Resurrection kickstarter in a while, well it is doing good! First we reched the initial goal of 35k to unlock Bauhaus and we have gotten quite a lot of concept images and 3D renders since then, but nothin of the final casting design yet. After that we also unlocked both the 40k, 45k, and yesterday we also unlocked the 50k pledge level. Below you can see what's unlocked so far and what to come at the 60k level.

Unlocked at 35 k.
So now we need to work towards the the 60k, I wan't those heroes! :P I say we but I have yet to add my pledge actually. Have been waiting on what factions to choose but I'm leaning on Dark Legion, The Brotherhood and Bauhaus so it's the Dark Legion pledge level I'm at the moment. Plus that I need to add some more units after that as well.

Down below are some concept images for the Vulcan and Angelika Drachen, the cards and some pictures showing the actual casting quality as well as comparison with an Warmachine mini I believe. Among with some other things I found over at their Facebook page.

I'l will keep you updated on this as I follow this Ks progress every day, and if you are interested in this game. Go over to their kickstarter and make and pledge, just follow the banner below.

First look: Mars White Dwarf Pics

I got my White Dwarf today and some of the pics have already been out on the web, but I also found some more interesting pictures I haven't seen before, like the WIP pics of the FF Horus Heresy Thallax for the Mechanicum Orde Reductor and Legion Reconnaissance Marine with an sniper variant bolter. There's also Warhammer Forge pictures of the Orc Command with an cool looking Orc Boss and Bsb with an banner made of an Wyvern wing, really cool looking models. There's also some new stuff for Hobbit and so on.
