Custodian Wardens Review

“They should have mops, since they’re custodians. They’re always mopping up the battlefield.” – Logan Swanson, 2018

Video Review

I really like this kit! They go together really well, and I think the versatility and economy of being able to put THREE DIFFERENT UNIT TYPES together from these five bodies is fantastic, and hat doesn’t even include switching out the Guardian Spears for the Castellan Axes.

You can either build five Wardens, or four, or three. With the other two bodies, you can change them from being vanilla Wardens to either the Vexilus Praetor (standard carrier) or Shield-Captain.

So. Much. Awesome.

Each mini is decked out with filigree, detailed armor trim, and beautiful little flourishes that I’m still noticing. Red is the natural color to contrast all the gold armor, so your golden boys will be very Roman Legions-ish when you’ve gotten them ready for the table.

I can’t wait to get into painting them.

From Cubicle7.

Video preview.

I’m really looking forward to this release! Everything I read from the developers is really encouraging, from the ways a creative GM can choose to resolve a skill test, to the teases of potential storylines (the starter set takes place in Ubersreik, which is a favorite go to for new adventurers in WFRP), this really looks like a game 20 year old me would have loved to get into with all his friends.

Looks like I’ll need to keep my eyes open for a new group of adventurers to torture-erm, play with!

Primaris Chaplain Review

Here comes the man in black

Video review

Post YouTube video observations:

  • You don’t need to ONLY use the Chaplain section of the transfer sheet for your Chaplain and nothing else. It’s two Ultramarine symbols, a Roman numeral 2, 4, a red skull (which can symbolize a veteran), and two Aquilas. Nothing is exclusively Chaplain-related.
  • His hanging nipple parchments (I don’t know what else to call them) are going to be so much fun to freehand. The artist who did the studio model really seemed to have fun with it, and I can’t wait to do it, myself.
  • I remember the crazius arcanum used to be described as a small rod with an Aquila at the end! This opens up the floodgates to simply convert your own chaplains by taking any long handled hand weapon (say, an axe), chopping off the head and replacing it with a skull bit! Hmmmm…potential future chop shop video?

“Let’s go…THATAWAY!!!”

Video review

This one really isn’t too terrible. The thing you have to consider with these minis is how much will you be using what’s on the figure? Unless you’re going to convert your optimal loadout, you’ll be playing with a Bolter/power sword and an iron halo when you put this guy on the table.

Not really a dealbreaker, just something to think about. Besides, completionists who want to collect all of the Primaris figures don’t really have too much to grumble about, as this guy does look pretty cool.

Captains holding aloft a sword and leading the charge are iconic of the romantic depiction of war in art throughout the centuries. You see this pose in paintings, in movies, on sculptures, and of course, in your Miniatures.

I really like this mini.

Was it necessary? No!

Am I glad that it was made? Yes!

What else would you have had them release for the 30th anniversary of Warhammer 40k?

An exclusive Chaos Space Marine? A super kitted out Ork warboss? Maybe a special edition Commissar Cain???

Nope! We’re riding this Primaris train til the wheels fall off, baby!

Seriously, I dig it. The audacity of dropping a special edition figure that looks like every other Primaris figure is just so GW, I can’t be mad at them!

If only it was in Finecast…

Beautiful, deadly, and one heckuva dancer.

If you are working with Finecast, like myself, don’t worry!

A little cleaning and a couple coats of primer will give you a great bunch of minis to paint up.

Finecast issues aside, let’s talk about the Howling Banshees sculpts.

There are basically three poses that the six Banshees come in:

  • Crane kick and aiming the pistol (like in the picture)
  • Crane kick with pistol up, looking to the left
  • Crane kick with pistol up looking to the right

There’s also the Exarch, but I don’t count her, as she’s basically on one leg, like the others, except she’s jumping off a space marine helmet.

Because the posing is so limited, you really want to keep you lines clean and your colors blended!

The hair is great because it’s so textured. You can drybrush the hair with successively brighter red/orange colors, or you can highlight individual strands by picking each one out with a finely tipped brush.

Either works (I hate dry brushing hair so I’ll always paint each strand, if I can!), and it’s really up to the painter’s preference which technique to use.

I am using the Ulthwe color scheme for this commission, so I actually painted the model black and picked out the armor in Rakarth Flesh, rather than basecoating in bone colors and having to pick out the bodysuit in black.

Again, either way is perfectly fine to begin your Banshees.
