Unboxing: The Horus Heresy – Betrayal at Calth Miniature Game

Welcome to my unboxing and review of the latest Games Workshop tabletop game product, the Horus Heresy: Betrayal at Calth Miniature Game set. This box of goodies is both a gripping board game as well as the first set of Horus Heresy plastic miniatures – which makes this a great tool to enter the 30k arena as well. In this review I’ll be showcasing the contents, especially the sprues as they are the focus point for me personally and will comment little on the game itself. Come join the sweet heresy after the jump.

New Miniature Project: Tolga!

A rather short post today to share the latest development at the Workshop. Two weeks ago early Saturday I have received the ultimate miniature which will be the focus of attention from here on. At first sight it’s a remarkable product with no mould lines so far and an excellent casting quality. Say hello to Tolga!

Tired but proud!

All kidding aside this is pretty much the game-changer for me as I’ve been expecting him for quite some time now. Immediately he’s become the center of attention in the family and everyone is excited to see my first-born son. Needless to say he’ll be well geared towards miniatures and other manly things from the earliest possible age – we even let him listen to Star Wars scores while he was still growing in mom.

Obviously the first few months will be eating up a lot of my time so expect to see less updates in this corner. I’ll be working on my Twitter account and Facebook page in favor of the blog but may still be able to post the odd review or showcase mini (ha-ha I wish!). The Facebook page is still under construction (due to laziness) but Twitter is up and running so feel free to add me to your follow list @roemersworkshop.

The best miniature I got!

Until next time, stay safe and keep on rocking the minis!

Unboxing: Angron, Primarch of the World Eaters

Welcome to the unboxing post of the third Horus Heresy Character Series kit on the Workshop! Gracing my workbench this week is Angron, the Primarch of the World Eaters, the first Primarch ever released by Forgeworld. Similar to the Fulgrim unboxing I’ll note on the box contents, post detail photos of the sub-assemblies so far and comment on the overall quality of the kit. So without further ado, let’s take a look at this beauty… hop in if you dare face the wrath of the Red Angel!

WIP Update: 04/11/2015

In the last few weeks before the baby is born I’m getting more time invested on the models at hand, with the Mhara Gal getting the most attention among the Horus Heresy Character Series kits. Last time I had left off the model covered in primer – it’s time the model gets some color! There’s also some updates on Fulgrim so without further ado, hop in to see my progress thus far.

Unboxing: Fulgrim, Primarch of the Emperor’s Children

Welcome to the unboxing of the second kit on the Horus Heresy Character Series from Forgeworld in the Workshop. This week I’m tackling Fulgrim, the Primarch of the Emperor’s Children, which is arguably the most complex kit I have ever attempted to assemble and paint in my hobby career. In this post you will find detail photos of the pieces out of the box (this time with Foldio assistance!), post-cleanup comments, a few pointers on how to assemble the figure and lastly a fully assembled and tacked figure at the end with closing words. If you’re interested, do come in and be illuminated by the Phoenician!

The Latest from the Workshop

Another long silence has passed at the Workshop since the last update. Between a long religious holiday (a saving grace from work, even for a heathen like me), my birthday and a business trip with a somewhat unexpected outcome I have managed to make time for the miniatures at hand and added more to the pile of unfinished work! Hop in to see what I have to share for the past few weeks and a teaser for what is to come (mobile users, slightly heavy with images!).

Unboxing: Chaos in the Old World Board Game

Hello and welcome to my unboxing/review of Fantasy Flight Games’ Chaos in the Old World board game. While the game itself is not brand new I thought it would be a good idea to take a closer look at it considering I’m a huge fan of the Chaos gods! So without further ado here’s what’s interesting about the game.
