Being an Arbitrator Part 1 – Big plans for getting Necromunda back to the Tabletop!

Necromunda is a miniature game like no other and can require a bit of unpacking for maximum enjoyment. That usually falls to a lone individual known as the Arbitrator. Campaign play does not require an Arbitrator but will benefit immensely from a good one. The concept will not be new to role players but is often completely absent from most tabletop skirmish games. Think of a Dungeon Master or other session organizer and you won’t be far off.

Let’s Not Do A ‘Year In Review’ Article, But Do A ‘Looking Forward To The New Year’ Article Instead…

If you asked me what I thought of the year 2020, I’d have to say it was a fantastic year for my hobbies… everything else aside. True, I didn’t get in as many games as I would have liked.

All beautiful, but are they all necessary?

This build ended up taking a lot longer than I had first planned but I’m excited for a unique gaming setting that promises to see many sticky deaths for those poor gangers! Here is how, and why.

Tools of the Trade: Hobby Glues

Before paint even touches your miniature, chances are good that you’ll need to do some assembly first, even if that just means attaching a single-part model to its base. Assembly can be a bit of an overlooked step, but it’s the foundation for everything you’ll do afterwards and it’s important to make sure you have the right tools for the job at hand. This is certainly true for the glue that will hold your models together – each type works in particular ways and using the wrong glue for the material you’re working with is a recipe for problems. Here, we’re going to go over the different glues that we sell here at Sentry Box for building your miniatures and models, to help you select the right one for your project. While there are many available, they fit into a couple broad categories. Let’s dive in!
