Power from Paint: Wych way to go?

Time to burst forth from the Web Way once more my fellow Archons!  The Incubi are now done bar the bases, and I've played a Mayhem practice game against a new Chaos list. After a shaky start the Dizzy and Splinter Cannons of the Kabal of the Sand Viper emerged victorious over the Black Legion!  

My Incubi ultimately weren't needed for combat, but I really appreciated having the option of a dedicated assault unit in the list. In fact I'm considering Wyches (and more on that later in the post).

The joy of a well stocked Bitz Box

Welcome back to the Vault once more! I've been spending some time de-cluttering the house (saying good bye to books long since read and clothes too tatty even for me to wear), and of course this leads me to think about the Hobby Mountain.

I am a self-confessed hoarder of games and models (both painted and unpainted). And especially unused model components. Whilst I'm not ready to bid "bon voyage" to any of my gaming stuff  (although I feel a swell of ruthlessness coming on), I have been assembling some kits and clipping Bitz (components) off the sprue to clear space on the shelves.

When you've been in the war gaming hobby for a while the Bitz Box can get quite deep, and this allows you to pull tricks like this off:

Power from Paint: On a Mission

Mid April is now upon us. And for the local 40K community that means a frenzy of list writing, painting and practice games in advance of Mayhem our club tournament.

I have a few list ideas in mind and whilst I procrastinate through making a final decision, I have started painting a few models which might make it through to the final cut.

I've primed a pimped-up Raider which has been languishing on the pile of Unpainted Stuff for far too long:

Cool Stuff: Dungeons and Doggies

Welcome back to the Vault once more! My pile of Unpainted Stuff continues to grow; mainly models I plan to use for 40K, but there have also been some additions to my fantasy model collection. I usually buy models with a gaming use in mind, but every so often I'll spot something which is just so cool I'll grab it, practical considerations be damned.

Steam Forged Games "Dungeons and Doggies" range definitely falls into the latter category.  This was a Kickstarter I backed in 2018, and which delivered recently; it comprises a number of 28mm scale adventuring dogs (yes really) covering a breadth of classes and breeds.

I'll start with my favourite, Cerysse the Saint Bernard Cleric:

How much healing potion is in that keg?
