Made some bases

To add some more power to my GW-Imperial guard I have glued 
some second hand bits to make supportweapons. Now I am finished 
making these and proceeded to make the bases. I have different 
themes to help identify the weapon-systems on the gaming-table.
I really like the autocannons and I think they look like a real threat just 
standing there. Sad thing is that they are not so strong as the lasercannons.
I also made some fittings to be able to add or remove flags and standards.
The bases are made from 5mm hard-plastic that I cut from a bigger sheet.
The terrain is made of polysterene (white light density and blue high density).
Next step will be to add pva and sand to make a cover and also to be able to 
use superglue for all the extra details. If you use superglue directly onto
polystyrene it will melt and get damaged. To be continued.



As I went to the local IKEA with my wife  I also found
something useful to 
me. :)
I bought the article Godmorgon (goodmorning) in the

half-price and find-department and the primary
use for this was to be used in bed when taking

a breakfast in bed. I think that these transparent trays will be
of great use when playing table-top-games.
As you can see there are three different trays in one set and
they can be used both for figures and for figures.
I think that for me they also can be used for hobby-work 
when the children are around and when you need to move
the hobby-stuff quickly out of reach for small hands. :)
The set only cost med 4 Euros on half price and the sad thing
seems to be that these will not be sold anymore att the
warehouse in the future but keep on looking outthere. 


More fire-power to IG

Last weekend me and my friend met for a combined gaming and
hobby-session at my new home. Olle continued working on his
team of space-wolves. I have bought a lot of bits on second-hand
to use both to build more mechas but also to upgrade my IG-force.
As you can see I have built teams with auto-cannons, laser-cannon
and a heavy bolter. They will all be fitted with more ground and 
cover before the lick of paint.
I think I will build two more models before I feel that I am 
finished adding fire-power (1 Laser-cannon and 1 heavy bolter).
I will also add some camo-nets and empty ammo-shells for the
right feeling.
Next up is that I converted a Valhallan-figure with no weapon
to be able to use a big weapon. :)
The IG-sniper is also a converted model that I think looks real
good but now has a solid base to stand on.
Soon it will be national-holiday and I say to all you readers out
there in swedish: Glad midsommar. (happy midsummer)


Necromunda-Ash wastes

Last weekend I invited my friend Olle to our new home to test Necromunda
and also to paint and build some new minis together.
I am new to Necromunda but I got hooked when I read the ad-on Ash wastes.
The ad-on is outside the hive and allows more interessting features as:
Mechas, wheeled vehicles, mutants etc.
I have played SoTR for years and one rule I like with that game is that
you are free to build your own vehicles.
Both me and Olle are not so good at the rules yet but we tested the
game in a very simple way and I think it is a great game.
The figures are a mixture of both GW Chaos cultists (40k) and
conversions made by me. Not all are finished with the lick of paint.:)
We started with 6 gangmembers each. The setup was to place our gangs
face to face and meet in the middle. I had two gangers with shotguns
and my only chance to use these was to storm forward and get close
to my enemy but he shot me long before I could do any damage.
Next gaming session we will fill in the forms and play the game with
9 figures each with support from one or two wheeled vehicles and
also one mecha! Looking forward to this very much.


Back on track again

After some time filled with broken legs, diseases, moving and 
other I am now back on track again. My own room (man-cave) is 
finally coming together and the filled cardboard-boxes disapear 
more and more. My own hobby-room will be filled with a lot of fun 
stuff and also house my computer/3d-writer/polystyrene-cutter.
As I speak I am about to put in a table and also mount some shelves 
on the wall.
The next room will be primarily my wifes but we have agreed to 
also let me borrow it when I will play games. :) In "her" textile-room 
I have bought portable legs to support my gaming tables and this 
will be very good because I will be able to put up a tables quick 
and get into play in a jiffy.
I have also made some nice finds during my time away and it 
is some medieval horses and also some more archers. 
All will be very useful when playing my own game:
huggochslag (cut and blow).
Finally I have started to experiment with leftover-cups for 
cakes made of thin aluminium.I read that these also can be 
used as bomb-crates and I will pour on some pva
and sand and mount them on bases for extra long life.
Next project of mine is to start Necromunda and primarily 
the ad-on, Ash wastes.
I like the idea of playing with gangs and the possibility to 
build vehicles of your own. The idea of building up to fractions 
in a ruined scenery with support from mechas,wheeled-vehicles, 
mutants etc is intriguing. I tested this game in a very basic way 
last weekend with my friend Olle and I think this will be great 
fun as soon as we will get a hold on all the rules.
A battlereport from this gaming-session will soon be published here.
