Played my first game of 8th Edition tonight. I brought some new Primaris Marines backed up by Astra Militarium tanks. My buddy brought an Ork army, that was Fast Attack themed. We decided to play the narrative mission: Ambush. It was over by the bottom of turn 3. The Orks rushed my lines and pushed the Imperial forces back. Eventually killings too many points, and I could no longer complete the mission objective. The new Space Marine Captain was a beast and really hurt his Warboss on Bike....however he finally went down to a hail of rocket fire from a war-buggy squadron. #warhammer40k#gamesworkshop#spacemarines#astramilitarum#orks#tabletopgames#miniaturegaming
And now for a real change of pace. This is Jim, and since he's a Hero Forge 3D printed mini, I assume he's unique. He was done for a friend and fellow D&D party member. Jim in a mountain gnome (grey skin) wizard, with necromantic tendencies, and kleptomania. His owner and I discussed the fiery skull, and he was keen for some proper necromantic green fire. After an abortive effort to do some really contrasting OSL on some of the Arcadia Quest Harpies, I planned this from the start. Most of the green colour is the original coat; rather than laying down a base colour and greening it up. I'm reasonably happy with the result, though it's nothing to the kind of lighting effects you see on Instagram.
As a final note, the quickest and most satisfying thing to paint was the book. I was delighted with the effect and it probably took 4 minutes in total.
