Power from Paint: A guide to painting Dark Eldar Vehicles

Welcome back to the Webway! One of the first articles I wrote for the Vault was a painting guide for Imperial Guard (mainly so I would have a handy reference for the next time I decide to paint some reinforcements), and I thought it would be useful to have a similar set of notes for my Dark Eldar vehicles.

I remembered to take a few work in progress shots of one my Venoms so I can illustrate the notes.

Time to bust out the paints!

Power from Paint: Ravagers

Greetings once again my fellow Archons. Work continues in the forges as the Cult of the Sand Viper prepare for Mayhem, and my attention has turned towards the vehicle pool. Dark Eldar have a number of iconic vehicles including the Raider and Venom transports and the subject of today's article, the fearsome Ravager!

BatRep: Grey Knights vs Dark Angels

Welcome back to the Vault. Today's article is a brief write up of a recent 40K game I played at my local club the First Founding.

My opponent for the evening was Kanan, who as usual would be bringing his Dark Angels, and taking the pretty pictures included in the blog. We play 40K fairly regularly and these games are never serious and always a lot of fun. Be warned this article is pic heavy and detail light; I didn't take notes and as my memory is rubbish I'm sure to have forgotten things and got things wrong.

We agreed on 1850 points, which is a rare treat as I have been playing a lot of Kill Team (200 points), and 1000 point games recently. So this was an opportunity to bust out my favourite army; the might sons of Titan, the Grey Knights!

Frostgrave Demo at First Founding Games Club

Hello once again, and welcome to the follow up to the "Terrain Junkie" article.

I'm a member of the First Founding Games Club based in Chessington, SW London, which has a thriving membership and sees a lot of different games being played on a regular basis. A lot of members are keen to try out different systems and I was recently asked to run a Frostgrave demo event which I was more than happy to support.

I think I might be a terrain junkie

Hi and thanks for dropping by the Vault once again. I've been in hobby butterfly mode recently; whilst I should be cracking on and painting more Dark Eldar for Mayhem I rather rashly agreed to run a Frostgrave intro game or two at the club in the near future. So my hobby time has been split between building warbands from my Fantasy model collection, and sorting some terrain out.

And that's the focus of this post; the joy of collecting and putting together a good looking set of terrain on a gaming table. I'll share a few pictures and some ideas on where to pick stuff up.
