Finished RRT starter box

Greetings All,

It took two weeks (with little sleep) but my first Robotech RPG Tactics box is built. Here are a few Picts and a few brief thoughts, sorry can't go into too much detail, it's time to start painting.

Dynamic Veritech Mod

Greetings All,

If you are a gamer like me then you like your minis/models to have varied poses so that you don't end up with each looking exactly the same. One of the complaints floating around the various user forums is that the Robotech RPG Tactics wave one Veritech models only have two types of legs for the Battloid mode, thus limiting the poses that can be modeled. However with a little adjusting and slight modifications you can modify the legs to inrcrease the pose options.

More to come.....

Robotech RPG Tactics Unboxing and Review

Greetings Readers,
PythNutD here with an unboxing and review of the Robotech RPG Tactics main box set.

 I know there are already unboxing posts and videos out there but I'm writing this as a review from the mindset of a former Warhammer 40k enthusiast and to simply give an alternate opinion. To start out, the box is very nicely designed with with some great artwork.

Now Inside........

Building a portable gaming table (top)

PythNutD here,

After a long hiatus I've decided to get back into table top strategy wargaming. Staying away from 40k for the time being and instead I'm going to start playing Robotech RPG Tactics. As I wait for my copies of the upcoming Robotech RPG Tactics to arrive I have been attempting to maintain my patience with a few small projects. The one that I have decided to share with you today is how to put together a light weight portable game table.

How to Fix GW in Four Easy Steps

RE-Post from Feb of 2013! Seems legit...

Ok, ok... so 'fix' might be a bit much, it could easily be argued that it ain't broken, and we all know what they say about stuff that ain't broken...

7th Edition Workbench! Space Marines/Space Wolves

While this blog may have become more dormant than it used to be I have been busy modeling and painting.  I am currently working on a Space Marine and Space Wolf army.  It will be used as either so I chose a generic silver based color scheme.  It is Drop Pod heavy and when fielded as Vanilla Marines it is led by Vulkan He'Stan and uses the Salamanders Chapter Tactics.

This Contemptor never seems to catch a break, those Sternguard vaporized him...

This Contemptor is my Knight killer.  He's taken a Knight out in close combat every game, except this one...

Vulkan and a 5 man tactical squad with flamers.

Looks cool right?  Nope, these guys are in Valhalla.  After annihilating a Knight the ensuing explosion killed all but one of them.

Vulkan survived the las cannon and assault cannon barrage from the Smart Car.

Nothing like Objective Secured units.  Unless they are Forgeworld Heresy Era models to boot!
Well, that's what I've been working on.  I have 10 Wolf Guard Terminators built, 10 Drop Pods primed black and then sprayed silver, plus another 20 Tactical/Grey Hunters, 15 Blood Claws and a Stormwolf.  Can't wait to use these guys as Space Wolves.  I love me some Space Vikings.

Forgeworld is Finally Releasing What I've Always Wanted!

Can't wait!  I've wanted a Vulkan model for a long, long time.  I even bought a Kabuki Miniatures version of him a long while back but wasn't satisfied with it.  This however looks just right to me.  FW continues to knock the Primarch models out of the park with these releases.  I may have to rekindle that old Horus Heresy Era Salamanders project I let grow cold...

Why Haven't I Posted Since April or Talked About 7th? Here, Let Me Show You.

Take a look at a few threads and the comments section of Bell of Lost Souls articles about 7th, and 7th edition tournament play.  It's a rats nest out there, and that's putting it simply.  I have entered into a state where pretty much everything about 40k on the internet pisses me off.  I am still painting, building, collecting models and I plan to start playing locally again starting next week but my internet presence will be limited.  Given the quality of what is talked about on Dakka, Whineseer, and BoLS can you really blame me?

Just check out these gems.

Hopefully I will have the chance to film my first game of 7th ed for a battle report next Tuesday ;)

Taking an Indefinite Break from 40k Playing Doesn't Mean I've Stopped Painting.

I will post more pictures as I go but for now here is a first look at my SM/SW army.  I plan to use a lot of Heresy era FW models but not exclusively.  If I can figure out making my own transfers the army will have the Stark sigil as their Chapter emblem!

Building a Revenant Part 2. Subassembly complete now time for PAINT!

I completed the subassemblies and the last bit of shaving on the shoulder pads etc last Friday.  I spent Saturday not playing in the local RTT like I planned so I felt particularly driven on Sunday to do something hobby oriented. Therefore I decided it was time to get some paint on this bad boy if I wanted it painted for the tournament down in Lakeforest this coming weekend.  Yes, they are allowing Escalation, Stronghold Assualt, Dataslates, 40k Approved FW, the whole shebang!  They are running it with the same sort of restrictions as Frontline Gaming.  Also the local tournament at Game Empire Pasadena in April will be running a similar format so I will get to use it twice!  GE requires that all Lords of War, Super Heavies, and Stronghold models be fully built and painted, no proxies allowed and any scratch builds will be subject to a stringent "rule of cool".  I am looking forward to it.  Now onto the progress and photos after the break.
