We FINALLY got a game of the new Kill Team in! We played without tac-ops or equipment just to streamline things a bit, and only got two out of the four turns done, but it was really good, can't wait to play more.

My Dreadnaught got, uh, slightly swarmed. (We lost due to not paying enough attention to objectives, though we also didn't actually finish all the turns before my teammate had to get back home so technically it could have gone either way.)warhammer 40k darkroom gaming games workshop necrons tyranids seven hills chaos space marines space marines

Look out, we're playing Warhammer 40,000! Pretty sure this is the first time in seven years...warhammer 40k darkroom gaming games workshop necrons tyranids seven hills chaos space marines space marines

Woohoo, the replacement female heads for my miniatures arrived today. They're metal but surprisingly good quality, can't wait to get them all painted up. (I think I'm going to wait for my airbrush stuff to arrive before I get stuck in.)

We were over at a friend's place today and he has an airbrush. I had a play around with it, and that's it, I'm getting one. Look at the damned smoothness of this zenithal highlighting!

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.

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've been doing a bit of experimentation with my miniature painting! First was finding a good colour scheme for my Tyranids and also using the "Muddy Ground" texture paint and little grass tufts I bought back in October (https://virtualwolf.org/media/posts/1855). The second has been "zenithal highlighting" where you base coat in black and then do a second prime with a lighter colour just from above, where the light would be hitting it. Very pleased with both!

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).
