We played another game of Fireteam today, this time with fully-painted miniatures, and I added some (not fully-painted) terrain pieces on the blocked hexes for visual interest! Lots of fun, the mechanics and flow are good, but given the mission we did was the introductory mission, I don't understand how the Necrons can possibly win. I guess I'll need to do some research.

The decal-softening stuff arrived yesterday, and today it was low enough humidity and temperature that I could varnish them, so now my Space Wolves are all done! 🎉

Well, I need to wait until I can get some of this special decal-softening stuff so I can apply the Space Wolves logo to their shoulder pads before I varnish them and put the little wintery grassy tufts on the bases, but I'm so happy with how these Space Marines came out! I did full zenithal highlighting, and the sergeant's face isn't drybrushed, I actually painted the highlights on by hand. 😁 And check out his pupils, and the other Marines' eyes!

I got the three Necron Scarab swarms done today, and I am fucking STOKED at how well the gems on their backs came out! They look like they're actually glass!

BAM, that's the Necron Warriors from Fireteam fully done! That crackle paint on the bases is so freaking cool, and I love the little dry shrubs as well. I've still got the three Scarab swarms to paint, but they'll be far faster to do. Then after that, five Space Marines, and that'll be the whole Fireteam box completely finished. 🎉

Got my first Necron done! I kept it pretty simple since I have another nine of them to paint. Check out that base, it's this special paint called Martian Ironearth from Games Workshop that cracks as it dries!

Got all the boxes I need to create the six squads for Fireteam now (https://virtualwolf.org/media/posts/1916). I'd SAY that's the last of the miniature purchases for a while, but we all know that's a filthy lie. 😅our house warhammer 40k darkroom games workshop astra militarum fireteam harlequins orks new miniatures

I played a game of Fireteam against myself tonight, just to get a hang of the rules. I really like it! It's pretty straightforwards and nice and fast-paced.

And that's the miniatures assembled! (It's getting a bit ridiculous how many unpainted or just undercoated miniatures I have right now).

New game! Really keen to take this for a spin, it's like Warhammer Underworlds in that it's got a hex-based board you play on, but it's set in the 40K universe and the bulk of the rules are based on the new Kill Team edition that came out earlier this year. It comes with Space Marines and Necrons but has cards for an additional four factions if you've got the miniatures for them (which conveniently I do)!
