Fallout [Modiphius] Brotherhood of Steel Knight

Last week the kind chaps over at Modiphius sent me some pre-release models from their up-and-coming game, Fallout: Wasteland Warfare to have a look at and paint up.

I was like an excited school child as I opened the small cardboard box and eagerly took out the six miniatures that they had sent me. These were three Brotherhood of Steel troops and three huge Super Mutants!

Old School Genestealer Hybrid (from a Space Hulk)

After adding some Orlock Brood Brothers to my Genestealer Cult last week I decided to further expand this den of filthy xenos sympathisers with another model this week.

Necromunda Orlocks (1995) - Genestealer Cult Brood Brothers

Variety, as they say, is the spice of life and so this week I've moved back up the scales from 6mm Epic models to some lovely retro 28mm toys.

I've recently been watching with interest the new Necromunda releases from GW and this week I have to say that I am impressed by the prototypes of the new Orlock Models that are due for release in the near future.

Three Orlock Heavies will provide some much-needed heavy firepower to my cultist force.

Epic Space Marine Battle Report!

So with my new found focus on 6mm goodness I've managed to fit in yet another game of Epic: Space Marine (second edition) with my regular opponent. 

There is no greater fun than fielding an entire Space Marine chapter and so once again we went huge win the size of this game... with total forces at around 7000 points per side which allowed me to field both my newly completed Terminator and Veteran Companies for my Flesh Tearers.

Epic Space Marine - Flesh Tearers - Special Characters and Terminators - 6mm

I very luckily managed to have another game of second edition EPIC (aka Space Marine) recently (battle report to follow at some point soon) and as ever it was exceptionally good fun with mass-devastation achieved by the end of turn three. There is something very satisfying about being able to field an entire Chapter of Space Marines during a game without having to have a playing area the size of a football pitch.

One thing that did shine through during the game is that Special Characters (as featured on the SPECIAL cards) are a vital tool in maximising the combat effectiveness of your troops. Much like the most recent edition of 28mm 40k (8th Ed) Characters in this game act more as force multipliers by driving up the potency of nearby units as opposed to being combat powerhouses in their own right.

I already have a number of Special Characters in my Dark Angels force but my Flesh Tearers were noticeably lacking in this field. So I as soon as I finished the game I went straight to my Epic Bitz Box to set about rectifying this issue in preparation for my next battle.
