40K Crusade - The Neltharion Schism - Narrative Campaign - Chapter 1

The Neltharion Schism Welcome to the very first Blog Post covering a 40k Crusade ‘gathering’ I have named The Neltharion Schism. This is not a true campaign, or ‘tale of painters’ style event as I instead wanted to gather together a group of friends who were interested in playing the new Crusade system. So, with this in mind, there is no requirement to paint models or play games at all, people taking part are free to play as many or as few games as they wish and paint whatever appeals (or simply use a fully painted army). This also means...

How to: Magnetic MDF Bases

To go alongside our newly released Magnetised MDF bases this guide will help you get the most from the product with a few tips and a walk-through of how I approach basing. I also get asked a lot about the bases for my Blood Angel army so I will also cover how I paint these. Here are all the finished models in one of my storage boxes lined with metallic sheet; which I am holding above my head! The magnets are designed to firmly hold models in place but not be too strong as to make removing them a pain....

I knew that I needed to paint my Mortex Crawler as the final model for the army, due to the size and unique details of the model - including the fact it had 5...

Clan Moulder - Month Five My last month was more models than I had painted for the entire project so far, Luckily these were mostly Giant rats, so a reasonably easy task. On-top of that I had a few Packmasters to add, then some work on the display board. Unfortunately we are now in the middle of some crazy times, so whilst the army itself is finished, some parts of the display board still need work.  Once the supply of paints etc returns to some normality I will finish those bits off, but with no events in sight at the...
