The making of Tundra

I am bringing forward today an article in which I go through in detail the techniques and applications of them that resulted in Tundra.

Designed to be a snow board, the place of ancient battles between races but now nothing is left but a Space Marine Rhino, a relic of sorts and visage of the brutality of war.

I have been wanting to do an ice/snow board for a while, as the concept comes out quite well and can provide simple terrain that also looks striking with the ability to further the depth through detailing, I found it too tempting and also fell into what Menza Gaming was wanting to bring to PAX2016 for a board to host a 4player free-for-all battle we planned.

Finished board took around two weeks of constant nightly work to finish, but with new knowledge comes new techniques and experience lends itself to cutting down construction time.

Simply put, the more you build, the better you get at it and quicker.

Weekly Warscroll: Ironjawz

This is the very first Weekly Warscroll! A weekly write up on 2-4 warscrolls from the same faction and how they synergize together.
So to start this off I am going to go over what I use in my 1000 points Ironjawz army. I will be going through 4 individual warscrolls, how they work together, the battalion I run them in and what command traits/Artefacts I like to use on them.

Ardfists 2016!

There was a great big Krumpin’ that happened on Saturday 19th Nov. Armies from all over the mortal realms came together and smashed heads, stole objectives and won major victories for their Grand Alliance.

Josh Sven’s Ardifsts tournament turned out to be a whopping great success! 24 players in the end had shown up ready to give their all for Victorias first competitive Age of Sigmar tournament. Held at Ringwood’s House of War, the players found themselves in a friendly atmosphere not knowing what the day may provide for them.

I, for one, was not expecting to do as well as I did (coming 7th overall) and securing a couple of early wins. For those of you playing at home, I’m not terribly good at winning games so this was fairly new territory for me. I won’t go into the details here… you can listen in on Ep2 of my podcast series Manic Menza for all the juicy bits.

Congratulations to the first podium finishers for Ardfists: Justin Shearer, Alex Palamara, and Michael Torrisi who placed first, second and third respectively. More applause please for Travis Cooper and his amazingly painted army of Chaos warriors who took out best painted. Check out the gallery to see pics of all the armies at play.

Can’t wait for the next Sigmar tourney!
