For those that are interested to see what some of the new Age of Tyrants vehicles look like compared to GW Epic, here are a bunch. As you can see the vehicles are bigger than the Epic Space Marine Land Raider.
Age of Tyrants keeps marching on. VASA has a really large beast known as the Red Hammer. I am still waiting on a sample to arrive to showcase, but in the mean time, here is what it basically looks like.
The Red Hammer has essentially the same chassis as the KV18 Ikon.
John and the rest of the Age of Tyrants gang are working on how to best mass produce the figures. They have played around with both resin and metal, but really like the resin version.
Just received some cool figures for the 6mm game Age of Tyrants from John Robertson of Myriad Miniatures.
The miniatures included the Age of Tyrants Junkers Exarch and a Viridian Dire Wolf. Both the Junkers and Viridians have several variants using the same vehicle bodies.
For the Viridians the Big Foot, Buffalo, Coyote, and Dire Wolf all are on the same tank chassis. Two additional vehicles are the Broadsword and Excalibur on a slightly smaller tank chassis.
For the Junkers they have names like Draco, Octoris falx, Octoris Incendia, Venator, Onager and the one I received called the Exarch. So far they use 3 different tank chassis
Right now there are 4 different factions including Junkers, Vasa, Viridians and Synthia. Junkers appear to be the most heavily armed and most heavy armored vehicles. Think GW dwarfs, slow but hard hitting. Vasa appears to be fast, but fragile. They probably don't have the punch of some of the other factions, but they can get there quick. Viridians seem to be a good all around army with reasonable armor and firepower. Synthia appears to again be fast and agile, but probably isn't as well suited for a full frontal assault on the Junkers. They remind me of GW's Eldar.
Both miniatures are very detailed high quality resin casts.
As you can see from the first picture, you will need to have a pair of clippers and possibly a file. I chose to use GW's Citadel Fine Detail Clippers to remove the excess resin.
For those that might remember, the Viridian tank looks similar to the old Warzone Bauhaus Tank, but with smoother lines. While the Bauhaus tank was sort of clunky, the 6mm Viridian tank is more refined and streamlined.
Just received a bunch of items from The Army Painter including their new Warpaint Quickshade Ink Set, Wargamer Most Wanted Brush Set and . Over the next few weeks I will be experimenting with Quickshade ink set and brushes. I haven't figured out what I will do with the dice yet, but they look good for 6-siders.
Frostgrave has me collecting all sorts of figures for a Frostgrave warband. What I have discovered is how so over priced Mordheim has become on Ebay. It's crazy out there. People are asking $30 - $100 for a single figure. What are they smoking? Why isn't GW seeing this and saying to themselves, hmmm maybe there is still demand for these figures. I can not understand how they couldn't make money selling these to people who are willing to pay 3 times as much.
Anyway here is a group of Mordheim Marienburg and Reiklander figures that I am going to try and replicate their paint jobs.
