Where to get 40K terrain?

July 17, 2010

This question was asked by Stuart recently on our Facebook group page, and basically, as long as you have the internet and a credit card, you can get terrain from anywhere. Here is a short list of places I know about, or found whilst trying to help Stuart out. Please add any you recommend in the comments.

Some of this terrain could be used for more than just 40K wargames though, and most of the manufacturers have a wider range of products to suit a number of different genres.

Getting to the bottom of it: Brilliant bases

January 2, 2010

A good base finishes off a model properly, and consistent bases tie a squad or unit together.

Black Templars by Jonathan Shaw

Too many people forget about bases, not even thinking about them till the minis are painted – and then resort to something simple like sand or flock. There’s nothing wrong with this, at least the minis are based – but a little creativity will make your minis stand out on the gaming table. Applying the same thought, care and attention to detail that you do with painting, to the base will take your minis to a new level.

What better than a quick run down of what we’d all love to get in our stockings on Friday morning, including some of the exciting releases of 2009, and some classics as well.

Gladiators ready….?

December 15, 2009

SI member Klaus Teschner, is the man behind Brutal, the new post apocalyptic gladiatorial combat board game.

The minis have been sculpted by Aragorn Marks and look pretty mean – perfect for the game, and you can buy them directly from the Dark Art Miniatures website, as well as from other suppliers (like CMoN).


Undead wallpaper

December 6, 2009

Issue 3 of Irregular magazine (due out in January) is a undead special, which inspired artist Ricardo Guimaraes to produce a rather special cover.

He’s also been nice enough to make us another wallpaper, hopefully this will wet your appetite for the new issue.
