    So, this week I was going to do a fairly extensive gun-servitor scratchbuild. Then my desk lamp blew, followed by my starting up at a gym, with the first session leaving my arms wracked with agony from overexertion.

    As a result, this week I present a much more modest effort to save both my arms from too much effort and my eyes from too much squinting; it's mostly a kitbash this time, although you could scratchbuild this with incredible ease if you were so

  2. 40K Roleplay Campaign: To Sakovhim - part 6.1 - Sakovhim and Its Demesnes

    Sakovhim and Its Demesnes

    Sakovhim is the capital city and metropolitan borough of Phylolaem. Based in the E'Krati-defined county of Sa'le'prayrye, its name derives from the firstborn child of Phaeron Phylolael, whose death is held by the once-proud Phaeron as the driving influence behind his desire for an egalitarian, fair society. With some of its southern suburbs annexed from Sa'le'rouzhe, the site of the long forgotten Necrontyr city was built upon by the unknowing E'Krati upon

    So it's another one of these. This week, I'm going to look at an adaption of the Assault Cannon tutorial; most of the things I build are made using the same skills, only adjusted for different purposes.

    Today, I will be showing you how to create an Autocannon ammunition drum, in the style of the current Imperial Guard Heavy Weapon Team/Hydra. Depending on the size of the styrene rod you decide to use for this scratchbuild, you can make ammo drums for anything

    Welcome once again ladies and gentlebeans to another tutorial on how to scratchbuild. I recently published a separate comment thread featuring some female Astra Militarum (link for those interested: http://www.lounge.belloflostsouls.ne...tarum-Regiment) and received a number of questions regarding the origins of the women's lasguns.

    As a result, this week, we're not looking at a straight scratchbuild,

    Matloqi

    Drugs legislation is difficult topic in Phylolaem. Culturally, all four species which make up the Covenant are strongly at odds with each other. The Bifrosti embrace the typically Imperial attitude that the vast majority of drugs are a gateway to recidivism, and thus would like to see them fully prohibited. The E'Krati, likewise, have a long tradition of disapproval of drugs unless one is of the Ethereal caste and therefore able to cope with the mental strains such chemicals

    Ahoy-hoy, ladies and gentlemen. Apparently I'm back with another one of these.

    As you may know, I am in the process of creating a Preheresy Iron Hands army using only GW components and scratchbuilding because I love Heresy-era stuff and FW prices are bonkers. So, this week's Beginner's Guide to Scratchbuilding is going to be of use to Iron hands players, as well as those of you

    The Tarw

    Dark Eldar society is, as everyone knows, built around hurting others. The Dark Eldar are, by nature, fuelled through the suffering of those around them. It is an unavoidable fact of their existence. This would seem to put them entirely at odds with the rest of Kepler’s society. How can such predicated sadists possibly function in a culture dedicated to co-operation and support?

    Easily.

    The truth is, the Dark Eldar slot in easily enough, gravitating

    So, last time, we learned how to scratchbuild a Heavy Bolter. This time, we’re going to look at a slightly more popular weapon. If you want to cheaply create some Assault Cannon Razorbacks, believe me, this is the cheapest way to do it. The total cost to me in bits was 30 pence – around 50 cents to my American cousins.

    So, to begin with, we’re not going to build a typical Assault Cannon – you can use this to do that if you like, and more power

    One Bifrosti Nation

    Imperial society is built around layer upon layer of duty, reverence and sheer, unabashed xenophobia. If there is one thing it can be agreed upon, it is that humanity does hatred better than any other species in the galaxy. By comparison to the greater portion of humanity, even the Dark Eldar fall short.

    When the Bifrosti arrived on Kepler, they were exhausted, broken across the soul by the hideous, Pyrrhic war on Albitern. Old grudges and mistrusts
