Model Company of the Month with Mechanical Warhorse

We conclude our May celebration of model terrain with some more great kits by Mechanical Warhorse.

You’ve seen my posts on the pipeworks kits for our Mechanicum/Industrial district, they are coming along nicely.  I wanted to show you some other great stuff and some items that are ahead of their time.  Mechanical Warhorse has some great scatter terrain and table props that really help capture the battle on your table top.  I’m talking about their com & watch towers, tanks traps and acrylic explosions, smoke and so much more.

Did I tell you how much I like their billboards?  I have three of these kits and they are great for nearly any setting, badlands, city, etc.  I’ve put them on the table at every Apoc Luck event I’ve run.  They are just too damn cool not to take pictures of your models without these somewhere in the photo.

 

I’m drawing the winners today.  Want to see if you’ve won?  Check out the NGC40k Facebook page.

Pipeworks by Mechanical Warhorse

We continue our May celebration of model terrain with Pipeworks kits by Mechanical Warhorse.

Our own group is building a Mechanicum/Industrial district and I immediately thought of Mechanical Warhorse for my pipework kits.  These kits are easy to assemble, look great on the table top and are very reasonably priced.  The Narrative Guys have a table full of this terrain and it looks fantastic.  Industrial, Imperial wastelands, ship interiors, the uses go on and on.

May Model Terrain of the Month Mechanical Warhorse

Wow that’s a mouthful and don’t try to say it three times fast or you’ll tie your tongue in knots.  If you did that, how would you spread the good word.

This month we celebrate model terrain from our good friend Carlos over at Mechanical Warhorse.

Armageddon is everywhere I look these days.  Danger lurks around every corner and from distant platforms.  Densely packed terrain with a strong industrial vibe really helps set the scene.  A great way to create that is with containers, catwalks and gantries.  Carlos is putting together some exciting combo sets to get you started.

In the spirit of ‘Model Terrain Company of the Month’, Mechanical Warhorse is giving a kit away to a lucky listener.

HC3D Battlefield Terrain

Horizon Creation 3D has some great Battlefield Terrain.  Concrete bunkers and tank traps for your hard points, watch towers and sandbag positions for your softer points.  Highly detailed and ready to create some cool scenarios.

I will be picking a winner on the 25th of April.

HC3D Bio Terrain

Horizon Creation 3D has some great Bio Terrain, perfect for creating a Tyranid invaded world.    I thought this terrain was perfect for my 40k Warzone Valedor table that I made for the 2017 Apoc Luck series.  Painted up in Leviathan, Kraken or a scheme of your own, this terrain will look great on your table top and really pull you into the story.

Terrain Company of the Month

We all now how important terrain is to the game.  It is the stage to the story we are trying to tell.  It envelopes our models and entices our imagination as we play through a game.  It has come to be known as the 3rd army.  In the case of The Narrative Guys and myself, it is more like our 4th, 5th and 6th armies.

I’ve already taken one step by creating the Terrain Index on our website.  I plan to make it better, more user friendly and I have a huge list of companies that need to be added.

I’ve decided I want to feature a model/terrain company every month to let you all know what is out there.  Show you what cool stuff they have and what they are working on.  Maybe even get some insight from the creators themselves.

Kicking it off is Horizon Creation 3D.  Founded in 2013, Curtis has taken his 3D printing company from nothing and built it into a household name.  He was so kind as to give us a Tech Terrain Kit to give away.  Pictured here are more of his awesome tech kits, great for Tau terrain, infinity, hive cities, power plants, etc.  Where ever your imagination takes you.

Episode 028

VALEDOR! ApocLuck 2017

Peter, you haven’t posted in nearly three weeks, where on earth have you been?

Well it all started several months ago when I was planning the scenery for the 2017 Apock Luck series.  This years theme was Apocalypse Warzone Valedor.  I decided this was the year I would up my game and really hit it.  I started pooling in terrain from all over, Gamecraft Miniatures, Horizon Creation 3D, Mechanical Warhorse, Terrainify, to name a few.

I had been posting a steady countdown to the event on the 1houranight facebook group.  It drew a lot of attention.  It came down to the wire at 2am the day of when I finally said what’s done has to be it.

Later that morning, nearly 60,000pts of points was on the board.  Even Kenny from the Combat Phase podcast participated.  It was glorious.

Here is a link to all the 2017 Apoc Luck, Valedor: The Mirrored Shield.

Of course like everything, it all starts with putting your idea on paper.

Coming along nicely

I used this video How to create rubble paste by EonsOfBattle for much of my base material.  I had to scale it up a bit, but I think I have figured it out and it’s looking great.  The idea was to create bases for those ruin corners that so many companies love to produce, but not attach them to the corners so you can change it up every time.  I sized most of the pieces to the Urban FATMat.
