Unboxing: Space Hulk Foam by Feldherr

Welcome to the unboxing and review of Space Hulk Foam by Feldherr! This is a specialist foam set for the famous board game Space Hulk that is designed to house both the miniatures and the gaming pieces within the Space Hulk game box. In the post I’ll be showcasing what the content of the package is and give you my experience in walking through the installation of said set with my copy of Space Hulk. Hop in and see if this is the solution for safekeeping your boxed game for you.

Results of Poll on April 22nd – It’s a Random Encounter with Genestealers!

See what I did there? Yeah. Anyways, the results for my first poll attempt are out and the public has decided. Priority posting goes to the Space Hulk Genestealers and the Random Encounter! dwarf miniature after the showcase of the Lychguard which I hope to have published sometime next week, if not on Monday as scheduled. It seems my businessĀ schedule has finally started to clear a bit and I can normal working hours again – so I want to make the best use of what little time I may have.

Here’s the result page. For a time I thought the Maulerfiend would prevail following the Tyranids but fans of Random Encounter emerged quickly. Overall the poll got 32 hits which is not too shabby for the first attempt. Hoping for a better population pool to assess next time!

I’m planning to have the Genestealer posts consolidated into batch sessions as there areĀ 22 of them plus their Broodlord and have the Random Encounter! mini as a more focused series where I practice some techniques I feared using. Exciting times I reckon, so stick around for a nice serving of painting.

WIP: Space Hulk Genestealers #1

Finally some significant progress on the hobby front! I found plenty of time with friends to work on some models (still no painting though, naughty me) and this time I tackled the Space Hulk Genestealers. Hop in to see what I’ve been up to.

Challenge of Painting

Small update for the beginning (more or less) of the week. The new year started slowly for the hobby department when it comes to the workshop. As you can see I’m still trying to shape out the Tyranid Trygon I’ve been working on for some time here, but every day I’m meeting new challenges. And then there’s the daunting mountain of models that stay primed and beg for attention. Hopefully I’ll be able to switch to new projects once the Trygon is finished. More WIP pictures and a little bonus after the jump.

Horus Heresy Boardgame, Trygon Update and “Random Progress”

The past weekend has been a great opportunity to make up for all that time lost due to sickness, work at the office and general procrastination in the hobby department. Even though I haven’t spent a great deal of time to paint my ongoing projects I received quite a bit of goodies to give me ideas with the Random Encounter miniature and got to play a terrific board game. Hop in to see what I’ve been up to after the jump.

Review: Shield of Baal: Deathstorm

In today’s review I’m tackling the new starter box set by Games Workshop that pits the Tyranids and Blood Angels against each other. As I mentioned in an earlier post this package is a perfect deal for those who would like to start out or simply expand their respective armies because it’s pretty cheap compared to the retail prices of the minis separately. Hop in to see what’s inside the box after the jump.

Additional Display Space

The weekend was pretty uneventful in terms of hobby time spent as I found little opportunity to work on the WIP models that keep piling up (and staring at me from their boxes). I did however took care of another problem: I got an extra display cabinet to separate the models from the other “stuff”. Check out the display with a few new tricks after the jump.
