War Head in Talvisota 2020



War Head was once again present in the traditional Talvisota gaming event, arranged last weekend by Nopat & Taktiikka Ry and their hard-working associates. The tables were set for a total of ten tournaments and over 140 participants and we were happy to support the event with terrain and prize support, acting as the patron for the painting awards of 40K, Age of Sigmar and The Ninth Age tournaments. Thanks and see you next year!

Studio Saturday!

This Saturday we had a nice studio session, gathering in numbers to work on some army projects and single figures. Scott is preparing a certain Blood Angels character model for upcoming painting competitions, Ollie laid down basecoats on his progressing Night Lords and Eric picked up a Lord of the Rings Denethor as his project of the day. We also had the pleasure to meet up with Alexander from Echoes of Imperium, who dropped by to chat about miniatures and gaming and brought some of his #Primogenitor Death Guard models for us to marvel at. Looking forward to some battles and other hobby collaborations!
Olli otti kynäruiskukornerimme käyttöön ja suihki panssarien pohjavärit uusiin Horus Heresy Night Lordeihinsa. Maalauslistalla on ainakin Tactical Marineita, Breachereita, Destroyereita ja tietysti synkkiä sankarihahmoja.

Noa perusti iltapäivän aikana Instagram-tilin (wrhd_noa) figuprojekteilleen - nyt päästään seuraamaan 30K Emperor's Childrenien ja Age of Sigmar Gloomspite Gitzien valmistumista!

Ollin vastavalmistunut Dark Mechanicum Magos löysi vierasperäisen esineen tutkittavakseen...

Alexanderin tunnelmalliset Death Guardit on kasattu lukuisista eri osista ja maalattu Blanchitsu-hengessä.

Lisää Death Guard -materiaalia ja paljon work in progress -rakentelukuvia löytää myös Echoes of Imperiumin Instagramista.

Ehkä päästään kohtaamaan ruttosoturit myös pelipöydällä piakkoin!
