The Lead Ogre

The third commission batch in a grand Death Korps of Krieg collection we've been assembling and painting included some Imperial Navy assets and was spearheaded by the famous lead-spitting Super Heavy tank! The Forge World units in particular made the project a joy to tackle. The paint scheme followed the example of the previous installments we've produced over the last year and is a rather traditional Imperial Guard / Krieg trencher palette. 

The camouflage patterns and metallic details form the body of the vehicles, but for me it's always the weathering that brings these things to life. This time we also added some white detailing in cannon barrels, hatches and decals for added contrast. We also hid a few freehanded nicknames or callsigns on the vehicles for our customer to spot later, characterful details like this often make gaming with the pieces a bit more memorable as well. Onwards to new quests!

Caliban Steel

Our commission painting workshop has been running at full steam lately - one of the recent projects was a thematic Horus Heresy Dark Angels detachment intended to be used as allies for a 30K Militia force! Interpreting a historical First Legion theme with all of the knightly details was fun and the compact contingent included both infantry and war machines for some variety. The project included both the prepwork and assembly as well as painting and basing to complete a force of Forge World goodies.

The Horus Heresy has been in the back of our minds a lot lately, as we're preparing for both our Civil War event as well as the next Echoes of Thracia campaign episode on the 4th of June. Looking forward to seeing you around the battlefields!

40K Oaths of the Moment Results and Coverage

Back at it again! The battlefields were assembled for some fierce 40K warfare today after the long hiatus, as we hosted a casual three-round event for eight valiant combatants. It was our first tournament for the ninth edition after the pandemic break and the reassembly of our terrain reserve and it was sweet to meet the players again after a long while. WTC Team Member Aleksi Lehtiö was kind enough to lend us a hand with the arrangements and was an invaluable consultant when it came to creating the modern tournament rules package. Cheers Aku!
