Guardians of the Great Plan: Into the Beastgrave

Hi all Neil here with with a new Guardians of the Great Plan post showing how I painted up a unit of terradon riders and the Starblood Stalkers, the Seraphon warband for Warhammer Underworld.  These two had a few new types of features to paint so I've recorded what I did for the models so I don't forget if I come to paint more in future.  This Starblood Stalkers warband is my first foray into Warhammer Underworlds which will probably be the game I use to break back into gaming after the halt caused by Covid.

Casting Off: Matched Play Musings

Hi all Neil here with a new Casting Off post with some more of my musing about how to create a matched play style of play for Victory at Sea.  Everything in here will be my ideas and opinions and are currently untested due to the COVID pandemic but hopefully I'll get to test them at some point.  Creating a more matched play style means looking at list building, battleplans and scoring, which I will discuss in turn.  Each of these are vital to creating a balanced matched play environment and will probably look very different from the section in the rulebook about gaming.  Being a part of the community for the game I know that points are a controversial issue currently, pending a FAQ/Errata at the moment, but for this it kind of doesn't matter what the points are either a more sensible Warlord issued set or a community generated set so long as everyone playing a game (or event) are using the same one.

Deimos the Steel Forge: Part 3

Hi all its Neil here with some more Adeptus Mechanicus models for my Deimos force.  This time I've been painting up my first vehicle, a Skoripus Disintegrator.  This was a very different painting experience for my Ad Mech and a good lesson for me on using contrast on the large flat panels of a vehicle.  I was planning on sharing my idea for a list to aim for at 2000 points but with the new codex coming soon at the time of writing I'll be waiting till after that's released to do this instead.

Guardians of the Great Plan: First Spawned

Hi all its Neil here and today I've got a little post probably more for me about how I'm painting up my Seraphon for Age of Sigmar.  I've gone into quite a bit of detail with lots of pictures to show how each step is building up my final colours.  I've primarily used a Saurus Oldblood to show the steps then used a Skink Starpriest to show the extra parts and differences that are on the skinks compared to the saurus.  I'm hoping to build up a playable 1000 point list to start doing some gaming again after a long break from Age of Sigmar.  Part of the idea with the Seraphon is try to use contrast in a more controlled way trying to improve my usage from the Tyranids I've painted.  So here goes for my full steps:

For the Lion: Shock and Awe
