[WH40K] Killteam Games

In the past weeks we played some matches of Killteam and I like it. I like these small games, where every man could count. It was meant to be an appeal for the members of my tabletop group to expand their 40K armies. The nice thing about killteam is, that you can play with a really small amount of miniatures. So you don’t have to bauy and paint lots of stuff.

But I realized, that killteam games are really depending on the battlefield. There has to be a lot of cover to offer enough tactical possibilities. That’s why our games are getting a bit boring. The battlefield is always the same 😀

The amount of scenery I build for my table ist enough for a nice 40K match, probably it is already too much. I started to use some fantasy scenery in the killteam games too. So I probably need to build some extra stuff for that. 🙂

And finally some images from our latest games.

[WH40K] Painting Chaos Cultists

Long time ago I purchased the 6th edition basic box with lots of miniatures in it and I didn’t paint any of them. My favorite were always these chaos cultists, because there were never plastic sprues of cultists. I remember a time were a chaos cultist unit of 40 men costs a lot of money, I think about 200€, because there were just metallic cultists and they looked like that:

And I wanted to made them look good. And during the painting I realized, that I never painted much robes, except those of my night goblins. I also tried to paint some flesh and failed as well. These are some pictures of my results, but I will rework them in a few days.

I searched threw the web and found some really nice footage on www.coolminiornot.com/. They got some pictures of awesome painted miniature there. I will try to concentrate on the clothes and the flesh. I really like the combination of different colours of the clothes.
