I spent the day at Pegasus Games in Madison, playing in an event ran by the local MYCL gaming group. Kenny from the Combat Phase was the event host. I had a great time, met some new people and even won Best Painted. I was really happy to be able to participate in an event that wasn’t my own for a change.


The event was a more narrative driven tournament, which meant the missions were story driven with an over arching theme, in this case the great rift as it happened. Also, this required a two paragraph story on your force and they wanted it based on a Black Library book or codex. Mine was the Honoured Sons of course, expanding on the one paragraph about them in the codex that has them fighting a Tyranid Hive Fleet Jormungandr.

I included some pics of a few armies that were on display.

Thanks again Kenny for running this event.

Pegasus Gone Gothic

Hey Listeners, I’m back again with another installment of Model Terrain Company of the Month.  We continue with Pegasus Hobbies terrain.

This post will be quick and dirty, but should be loads of fun.  One of the most versatile kit series I’ve seen out there is the Gothic Buildings and Gothic Ruins kits.  They are totally modular, lock in tightly with each other and offer up some great terrain creating capabilities.  I’ve made plenty of structural ruins, a chapel large enough to house a Warhound titan and I have plans for many more buildings.  I’ve seen loads of uses from tight hab blocks by the Narrative Guys to the towering superstructure of an Imperator Titan at the Apocalypse event at Adepticon.

The kits are simple, yet oh man what you can do with them.  The Pegasus Hobbies Gothic buildings are durable all plastic kits, super easy to paint up, and best of all, they look great on the table top.  Here are some of mine.

Let’s have some fun with this.  Whatever hobby group site you see this on, including the podcast Facebook page, post images of what you have created with these kits.

I have a lot more from Pegasus Hobbies to share throughout the month, so stay tuned.

Episode 036

Pegasus Hobbies

February’s Model Terrain Company of the Month is Pegasus Hobbies.  They have some great kits and terrain accessories.  With the re-introduction of the squat to the world of Necromunda and 40k, industrial terrain is once again at the forefront of everyone’s mind. (by the way, how awesome was that video!  GW continuing to nail it.)

Pegasus Hobbies Hexegon Construction sets are highly detailed, sturdy plastic kits.  They are modular and offer lots of room to create some unique set ups.  The kits easily mesh with any other industrial style terrain you may have.

It wouldn’t be industrial without pipes running this way and that.  Their Chemical Plant Construction kit offers plenty of pipes, elbows, turn wheels, and various size pressure tanks.  This is another kit that stands great on its own or is easily blended in with existing terrain.

 

They also have carry one of the few bridges on the market.  The Pegasus Hobbies Technobridge is simple, sturdy and very fitting for crossing industrial drainage channels.

Grab ya Mallets Boyz

Saving my favorite for last, the Wargames Tournaments Junk Town terrain is not only fun to build, but opens plenty of possibilities.  I had several bits left and I was saving them to use on other terrain to add to the entire scene.

The first thing an ork wants to do after lootin the populace is build a place to protect all that new scrap.  Wargames Tournaments has a good collection of defensive structures to protect your Junk Town.  Wall sections, barricades, security and watch towers, a landing pad and my favorite, a working outer gate.

They even give you a deal while showing you a cool way of assembling some of the kits.

Wargames Tournaments also has several buildings for your town, including a really cool Quonset hut.  The kits have their base components to create the general structure and they include a sheet of scrap metal bits that allow you to layer it on as thick as you want.  You tend to get way more than you need, making it great for using on other terrain in your collection.  It’s a really good way to expand the town with pieces that help tie it all together.

And if you need more sheets of scrap metal, they have a variety of sizes available.

They have a few extras for the Junk Town scenery, like a signal tower and horizontal fluid tanks.

Another thing I like about this terrain is it gives you so much opportunity for weathering and other effects.

Thank you Wargames Tournaments, it has been fun sharing your collections.

Did Someone Say City Fights

Hey listeners, I’m back to bring you more from Wargames Tournaments.  This time I wanted to show you just how much city terrain they have.  It’s truly incredible.  Variety is the spice of life and your table, so let’s get started.

Wargames Tournaments has a wide selection of city ruins for you to adorn your table with.  They have modern buildings of all sizes.  It truly doesn’t take much to give you that heart of the city feel.

The next series they didn’t have when our gaming group purchased tables of terrain from them.  If they had them, I definitely would have picked up a few to sprinkle on the table.  Why?  Because they had line of sight blocking terrain in mind in the design.

Do you need a chapel in your city or want bits to create your own, Wargames Tournaments has several of these too.

It wouldn’t be an Imperial world without some sort of gothic feel.  That’s why I chose these for another table worth for our gaming group.

 

I told you they had a lot of city ruins.  You mix a table of this up and you really have a city where each piece stands out, yet the whole table melds together in one great city scape.

Now onto something I really like, modern buildings that are complete.  Not every building in your city needs to be a blown out shell.  A few of these on the table will truly make the city feel complete.

We all love scatter terrain and here are a few bits that Wargames Tournaments has.

Finally the cats meow.  An entire city scape, streets and all, in one convenient package.

Industrial Terrain

Necromunda is all over the place.  Games Workshop has done an incredible job reintroducing this game to their fans.  The setting has a strong hive city industrial feel and has people searching for some unique bits and boards.

There is some great terrain out there for it and Wargames Tournaments has two differing terrain sets for this along with all the goodies to make it pop.  When I first found them I was blown away by the industrial board and I knew I wanted that to be one that we picked up during our store terrain drive.

One-Set-built-figures-web-big-0005-600x429

The Industrial Set.  I mean look at it, this thing is cool.  These give me so many ideas, including having them fighting across the roof top of a large factory.  Put some tubing up the center of the towers and you’ve created smoke stacks with overhead gantries and service platforms.

Since then they have expanded this to include other pieces that you could easily tie into this set have stand on it’s own.

Wargames Tournaments has even added an entirely new set called the Slot and Stack industrial set.  The cool thing about this set is that it is modular, meaning you can configure it in as many ways as you can dream up.  It is also designed to be taken apart after each game for easy storage.  The pieces of the kit have less removed surface area, making them stronger for wear and tear of assembling and disassembling.  The burn in designs mean it’s not sacrificing detail to achieve that balance.

What good is a industrial complex without a crane.  How bout a really big crane!

Massive-crane-deal-1-720x478

I so want this thing.

And of course a board is never complete without scatter terrain, the spice of the gaming board.

One last thing I want to mention about Wargames Tournaments Industrial Terrain is they have bits for you to make your own.  Various doors, window, ports, and other sorts of goodies.  Let your creativity expand your terrain and the Industrial bits help tie it all together.

A Brand New Year of Terrain

Hey everyone, we are back with a brand new year of Model Terrain Company of the Month.  I still have a long list of companies I want to introduce you to.

January’s Terrain Company of the Month is Wargames Tournaments.  In our shows humble beginnings I mentioned that I organized a terrain fund to get new kits into our friendly local gaming store.  Wargames Tournaments was where I gladly invested those dollars for the local gamers.  They have a great selection of terrain and the themes are expansive enough to easily fill out a 4×6′ table.  Their kits are all mdf, so you know they will hold up to even some rigorous wear and tear that we gamers can dish out.

The first set that caught my attention was their Space Elf terrain.  So when it came to picking out a table worth of kits, this was at the top of my list for something unique.  Just look at these temples.

The detail that Wargames Tournaments put into these kits is awesome.  If you are looking to get terrain to create an Eldar Crone world, look no further.

Whether your getting your force down to the planet through a void gate or the old fashion landing craft, Wargames Tournaments has you covered.

And don’t forget to protect your forces when you get there with custom shield generators.
