This week I have the next game in the Tale of Many Gamers event that is occurring at my local Games Workshop at the moment, and I wanted to bring these guys as my new unit for the week.
Unfortunately due to real life I only got the first chance to start clipping them off the sprew on Monday of this week for the game on Thursday.
So I built, magnetised, and painted to a basic tabletop standard in 3 days, I’m quite pleased with that
I plan to add some more details, edge highlighting, and weathering later this week, so watch this space.
With the new addition to my force the, total points value has risen to 1407 points. The next challenge will be to get more troops on the table, so I can make use of the objective secured special rule. Currently my list is Unbound which so far has been fine, but as the campaign rolls on, this will become more of an issue.
This week I have the next game in the Tale of Many Gamers event that is going on at my local GW, in fact it is tomorrow, and my new unit for this month was to by me Broadsides that I have been working on, off and on, for the last month, but unfortunately there has been a lot more off than on and I have a day to go and they are still not painted to the minimum level that I would be happy with.
This means tonight is going to be an all night painting session to at least get them up to tabletop standard, though if I can I will go further.
See my progress below, I have all the drones done, apart from flock on the bases, 1 broadside is nearly done, it is just the other 2 that are just base coated and shaded and will require a lot more work.
A little progress this week on my custom Tau objectives. I wanted these objectives to all signify something that you would want to capture.
This objective is a Forgeworld Tau Technical drone mining the native crystals of the world and will represent objective marker 6 for use in the game.
This week I’m getting another of my Tau objective markers done as you can can see below and planning the next one.
This week both the 4thWar wargming table and the Antidote card game kickstarter have successfully funded with impressive totals of $35,613 for 4thWar 273% of their goal and $45,157 for Antidote 361%, fantastic!
The other 2 campaigns I mentioned last week are doing well, knocking off stretch goals as they go.
This week a couple of new Kickstarters have come to my attention:
Pledges for items start at $40 for one small 2 story building plus $20 shipping for non-US backers like myself, is not bad for the quality of the terrain you get, but what excites me about this kickstarter, is the multitude of stretch goals that have been unlocked, 5 of the 6 currently being posted. In particular I could realistically see the “Hope Hospital” or the “Large Destroyed Building” making an appearance on my table.
That’s no joke. The entry level for 1 case is £22 which is £3 cheaper than the KR equivilent. The money saving really comes into view when you look at the larger pledge levels. Also This Kickstarter is located in the UK so there is Free shipping to UK residents. Non-UK residents would have to add a variable amount depending on how many cases you wanted, which reduces the savings, but is still a good deal.
The game is filled with dark versions of famous literary characters like Sherlock Holmes and Watson, along with steampunk twisted real life characters, such as Nicola Tesla and his female dimension hopping counterpart. If that sentence did not get you wanting to see more about this I don’t know what will, maybe this…
Infamy: Welcome to The Big Smoke, has stormed past its original goal and unlocked almost all of it’s stretch goals.
To get “in” on this kisckstarter, you can spend £1 for a copy of the Living rulebook, or if you want some miniatures, of-course you do, £3 unlocks the ability to purchase any miniature released during the kickstarter. In reality £15, would be your minimum spend in this, to get access to the Nicola Tesla Kickstarter exclusive miniature, he looks amazing.
Though if you want to get the best deal, the Masacare Level at £130 is fantastic.
Also, did I mention, this Kickstarter is situated in the UK, so unlike the other’s I have shown you this week, this one is FREE SHIPPING to customers in the UK, add £5 to ship outside the UK.
Yesterday 4thWar’s Wargaming table Kickstarter came to a close with an impressive total of $35,613 of their $13,000 goal. It is great to see this project reach completion, the staff at 4thWar have learned from their mistakes during their first Kickstarter venture and succeeded.
Congratulations to all the staff at 4thWar, roll on December so I can try these tables out :-). For 4thWar at least, today the cake is not a lie.
