Dragged into Turbolasers Episode 55: Playing Blackstone Fortress


Having played a few games of Warhammer Quest: Blackstone Fortress, we use this episode to express our thoughts about the game. In previous episodes we talked at length about the models, but this one is focused specifically about the quality of the game itself, and how well the mechanics work to capture a setting and to create a fun gaming experience.

Conversion Corner: Sister of Sigmar Augur

The promise of an age of peace and prosperity is drowned in blood.

With the Mordheim 2019 event rapidly approaching, I thought it apt to devise a Sister of Sigmar conversion suitable for our Conversion Corner segment. Fortunately, Games Workshop had just released the Genestealer Cultist Locus model, which seemed ideal to create a robed Sister of Sigmar. With a little thought, I decided to try to convert the model into one of the hero choices for the warband, the blind Augur. Fortunately, the model came together quite quickly!

Mordheim 2019: First two sisters complete

Come with me, descend into the darkness.

While it has been a long time in coming, I am happy to say that the first two members of my Sisters of Sigmar warband for Mordheim 2019 are finally finished (being built, at least)! I shared some of the work in progress pictures earlier for both (first and second), but with this post I want to show the completed models. Each required extensive green stuff work to finish, but I think it makes the models more cohesive and distances them from the original models.

Dragged into Turbolasers Episode 54: Las Vegas Open model reveals

Trigger control?

Games Workshop was at the Las Vegas Open to cover the major Warhammer 40,000 event that was held there. To celebrate this, they revealed a lot of new products, including a host Primaris and Chaos Space Marine models. We spend this episode talking about our thoughts on the models and what it means for each respective model range.
