So I’ve been asked a lot recently how I did the bases for my Farrow so heres a quick step by step guide to making them yourself! Nothing complicated but they do look great and as we all know a good base can make or break a model. So read on fellows, read on…
Now as I touched on in my previous post Warmachine is not a game you associate with conversions. A range that provides only static metal models with no interchangeable bitz or options is pretty weak when you compare it to say, Warhammer, where nearly every model can easily be made to look different.
Now don’t get me wrong I’m not complaining, this does prevent a lot of gaming shenanigans that games like Warhammer suffer from like laying down space marines, oversized vehicles, winged tyrants and all the other cheesy modelling advantages that I’m sure you’ve heard of. Combined with PP’s simple Base Size=Height/LOS system it makes the game mechanic perfectly simple.
However as a modeller, who enjoys having good looking models and isn’t too keen on duplicates it does sometimes rub me up the wrong way and recently, starting with the winterguard, I’ve had the urge to experiment a bit more in having a more unique looking Warmachine army. The problem is that to stop people abusing the system PP have a very formal ruling included in the new 2012 Steamroller pack.
So I’ve got a new conversion to show you all and at the same time we’ll take a look at the ruling and see why it’s allowed.
First of all sorry for the lack of posts guys, Its been a pretty busy January but sadly not so much in hobbying. Work and other assorted niceties have kept me away from the brush but I have managed to get a few things done.
I’ve had a good few games with the new steamroller 2012 pack so look for a few posts concerning that and how I need to adapt my Khador to the scenarios and rules! In the mean time I have some new winterguard to show!
I thought it would be good to have a good run through my current main list with the UK hardcore next year being one of my targets. I’ve been playing Warmachine since summer 2011 and this means my play level is somewhere between baby seal and the try hard kid. So I’ve got alot of work and practice to put in before I’m ready for this sort of event!
