Several Mini-Projects Made Mostly of Junk and a Look Into The Book of Peril.

Having amassed enough models and scenery, and now waiting for a future time to play, I find myself looking around the hobby desk for some small and simple time-filling projects to keep me busy while I enjoy my alone time from the gaming table. One of the main aims of my Necromunda fixation is to produce a table so choked with terrain that models will be lucky to ever have long range on their opponents, ensuring some close combat as well as crazy shooting.

More scenery means more violence!

‘More’ is all fine and good but I need a break from spending money. Pretty simple to backwards engineer the project from there: More Stuff + No Money = Garbage for Materials…

Road to Indomitus: Part 1

The big news these days in the world of Warhammer 40k is of course the upcoming Indomitus box set, ushering in a new edition of the game as well as a whole host of new models. As is typical for releases like this, we have a display set from Games Workshop specifically to promote the new edition and its exciting new content. BUT, that also means that we’re expected to have the armies from the set painted, finished and ready to display come release day – just two weeks away! As one of our staff painters, I got the job of completing one half of the models included in Indomitus, and since I had to do the Space Marines for the last set back at the start of 8th Edition, I called dibs on the Necrons. I thought that you, our dear readers, might also enjoy a peek behind the curtain and a live look at my progress as I work on this project.

My name’s Chris, and I’m here to paint robots!

Great Paints You Might Not Have Tried: Citadel Edition

A little while back, we took a look at some of the paint ranges we carry here in the store and highlighted some great colors from other manufacturers you might want to try if you’re used to only using Games Workshop’s Citadel range. It was especially relevant at the time since we had been unable to restock our Citadel racks due to the shutdown – but since that particular problem has been gone for a bit, we thought you might also like to hear our resident paint expert Chris’s thoughts on our Citadel paints in the same way we’ve already seen for other brands we have.

Beyond the Gates of Antares demo

GoA Big Battle

The Sentry Box will be hosting a Beyond the Gates of Antares demo on Saturday November 21st at 12:00 noon. Miniatures and terrain will be provided so come down and check out this new sci-fi miniature game.

Please note that the date for this event has changed.

The store already has stock of the game so you can check out some of the other miniatures, the rules as well as the starter set before coming to the demo.

Beyond the Gates of Antares is the new science-fiction skirmish wargame written by Rick Priestley (the creator of Warhammer 40,000) that pitches technologically advanced human civilizations into a conflict that no one can afford to lose.

Beyond the Gates of Antares game play makes use of the successful and exciting dice activation system first pioneered in Warlord’s popular Bolt Action WW2 wargame – ensuring that both sides remain active and engaged throughout every game. Resolution is by ten-sided dice offering considerable expansion and great range of detail compared to traditional six-sided dice.
