I’ll admit it, my enthusiasm for Fantasy has been a bit lacking lately. I’m sure you all know the feeling, particularly if you play other game systems too, that sometimes you lose enthusiasm for one part of the hobby in favour of another. For the last couple of weeks, the “roundbaser” in my has been taking over and I’ve been putting much more thought and time into my Adeptus Mechanicus 40k army than I have anything Fantasy related.
What turned it back around for my was last weekend’s Fiasco convention. As you’ve probably already heard we put on a massive display game that completely reminded me why I started playing Warhammer in the first place. While we tried to balance the sides, everyone pretty much brought every painted monster they owned to put down on the table, along with all our really nicely painted 1500pt armies that we took to AGOM a few months back. The game was absolutely awesome, crazy, and completely jump started my enthusiasm for Fantasy again.
While wandering round at Fiasco I couldn’t help but pick up a couple of laser cut MDF buildings, one windmill and one dark ages style house/tower. I decided I wanted to make a really big, dark and “Warhammery” centre piece for my gaming table and what better than a rickety, run-down old windmill.
I’ll stop rambling and show you some WIP shots.
Since both pieces are from seperate manufacturers there are some stylistic differences, so I decided to tie them together by doing the roofs in exactly the same style, using individually cut roof tiles. These also help push the model towards a “Warhammer” style, as I can make them look dishevelled and falling apart rather than neat and tidy.
There’s obviously still lots of work to do, so I’ll keep you updated.We need YOU! We want to make T4G the best Warhammer hobby blog on the net!
