Dropzone Commander: Here come the little guys!

Hello once again readers! A short but hopefully enjoyable post for you today as I've continued to paint some more of my UCM models in preparation for Critical Engagement 17. This time I've completed my Wolverine As.

Wrong Universe. Right Colours.

Dropzone Commander: Don't forget your shades!

Welcome back to the Vault faithful readers; this time I advise wearing shades as the paint scheme I'll be showing off is a tad bright!

Whilst I am *very* excited for the upcoming 40K 8th edition, I've actually got another project on the go. I've signed up for the First Founding's upcoming "Critical Engagement" Dropzone Commander tournament, and that means I'll need some painted models! So one new army, one month, no problem!!!

United Colours of Minion!

The Lazy Person's Guide to Painting Imperial Guard Vehicles

Welcome to the Vault once again faithful readers. Today's article complements one of my earliest entries on the blog, the painting guide for Imperial Guard infantry. A bank holiday weekend has given me the perfect opportunity to indulge in some hobby time, and with 40K army building on hiatus until 8th edition drops I decided to dig into one of my older projects (of which I have many*)...

*see the end of the article for more on this...

...the iconic Imperial Guard vehicles. Sentinels and Leman Russes to be specific.

Fire on my target!!!

Target Prioritisation: Looking beyond the New Hammer 40K Rules

Welcome back to the Vault faithful readers. Something a little more philosophical for this post, but fear not I'll throw in a few pictures as a bonus, as the hobby and gaming fun continues.

If you are involved in the wargaming hobby you will no doubt be aware of the upcoming new 8th edition of Warhammer 40,000 and of the social media campaign that the Games Workshop staff have been running.  This has had a hugely positive response from the 40K online community, and is I hope a good sign for the rule set itself. Because the ramifications of these rules go well beyond what model moves when and what the 6 on the dice means.

Stay on Target

Power from Paint: Dark Eldar Mayhem

So Mayhem is nearly upon us so its time to unveil my army list with associated pictures and fluff. I'm pretty sure I'm not going to be giving any of my opponents too much of an advantage with an early reveal and if you've had the patience to read through my earlier Power from Paint articles I think you are due a look at the final goods! Warning this post is very image and word heavy.
