Hobby HQ

Posted by Chris Hobday on

With the UK Games Expo coming up in just a few days, hobby time has been pretty scarce. So this week's Hobby HQ is short and sweet!  So following our fire incident, and with all the prep for the expo this coming weekend, hobbying has had to take a back seat. However, we did manage to get a few bits done here and there!I've been wanting to add levels to an Infinity table for a while, and decided to make use of some of our Necromunda terrain sets. These are perfect for 40K but maybe a little too open for...

Field Test: Squat Kill Teams

Posted by Chris Hobday on

Every Wednesday, our Field Test blog brings you new rules, missions and ideas to supercharge your games! This week, we share our homebrew rules for running Squats in Kill Team.  Following the cataclysmic destruction of their civilisation by a Tyranid Splinter Hive Fleet, the Squats have become a rare sight in the Imperium.

But it's those huge centrepiece models that really draw the eyes of passers-by.

Every Tuesday our Hobby HQ blog sums up what we've been doing outside of our dayjobs. We share pictures of what we've built and painted, including WIP projects. We'd love to see some of your work, too! If this week's blog tells us anything, it's that despite everyone being crazy busy, things are still somehow getting built, primed and painted. But the mountain of projects is slowly piling up, there's no doubt about that. Going to start with something spectacular that Grantt has been working on. Next month, hopefully, we'll show you the finished piece but here's a WIP that we meant...
