Flash Gitz - First Look

Still no new codex for the Orks, but the Flash Gitz have arrived! The perks of running a game shop mean I got my very early this morning, and just wanted to share a couple of pictures of mine in the early build stage.
When I first saw the models I thought they looked a bit too much, but then I suppose they are Orks, and Flash Gitz of course. Although the poses are very similar, the sprue has plenty of options on, and I think it would be easy to create a squad of 10 unique looking models.

They've still got a lot of work until I'm happy enough to give them an undercoat, plenty of mold lines to remove, and small details to add (gun straps and shell casings)! The guns are so huge and detailed that I will be painting them seperately but I've added nearly everything else. Tomorrow I'll finish the build and will be then will start paitning.

We're also running a fab deal of the week with Ork Reinforcements are now available for Pre-Order from Kirton Games! Pre-Order 3 Ork Big Gunz with our Pre-Order Deal and we'll give you the Ork Big Mek absolutely FREE! And don't forget about our FREE UK Shipping!

Mordheim - Building the City of the Damned (Part 1)

Some bright spark (me :P ) recently decided it would be a god idea to get some of Games Workshops old specialist games being played at our store Kirton Games. We settled on starting up Mordheim as the first delve into this, after getting some popular support for it from several local gamers.

Mordheim for those of you who don't know was a skirmish game released by Game Workshop in 1999, set in the Warhammer World in an Empire city of the same name which is destroyed by a comet. The comet scatters a precious material, Wyrdstone across the ruins of the city, which warbands, mostly of human but also consisting of many other race from the Warhammer world seek to collect and come to fight over.

Its a very terrain hungry game, and belated I realised we'd need rather alot of ruins, given we did'nt just want to end up using the store extensive 40k ruin collection.

After a bit of research looking at the options, I decided that the best way forward was to build our own, despite the fact though I've been in the hobby for years I've never really built much in the way of terrain!

I've started off with some basic materials, a pack of A3 Foamboard, a little bit of scrap plasti-card, lots of PVA glue and some pin.... these were the first results.

I've gone for just building lots of houses to a similar design for now, with 6 completed to this stage.  I've not bothered with templates as they are fairly simple to construct, each floor allows around 2.5" of headroom suitable for most standard sized models.

Of course while functional they are no where near finished, so the next stage is detailing, a process I'm just starting to experiment with. For now I'm only working on one building for this, with floorboards added from lollypop sticks. I'm now waiting for a big delivery of these so I can do joists and beams on the exterior as well.

Once these are done I'll be using some filler and textured paint to finish the buildings off, before basing and painting the buildings. The lat piece of the puzzle for now though has been ladders, settling on a easy if time consuming build for these of two toffee apple sticks with holes drilled into them, into which cocktail sticks are fitted as rungs!

The build continues!
