Road to Armageddon: Assembling the Team

My Sisters of Battle are gearing up for the Shadow War: Armageddon campaign. I have a limited supply of parts and models to pull from; I don't want to scour eBay for odd models or buy entire units from GW. If they release new Adepta Sororitas kits, fine, but for now I'll have to settle for kit-bashing my kill team.

Angelica Weiss, Sister Superior

This model was almost ready to go. I had built her as a custom special character for my Black Templars. She would accompany the Emperor's Champion, and could weild the black sword if he ever fell in combat (hence the black sword in her hand). I'll work that into the kill team's backstory– more on that in a future post. Her starting equipment is a combat blade and a storm bolter with a red-dot laser sight.

Dark Age Crystal Caverns

Along with the Wrath of Kings board, the guys at CMON also commissioned me to build a board for the Dark Age miniatures game. They wanted a 4' x 4' cavern filled with glowing crystals, bottomless pits, and acid pools.


I drew a lot of inspiration from the natural caverns I'd visited in the past for the shape and color of the stalagmites and columns. The table came together over the course of a few months. Here's a little peek behind the scenes...

Morghast Archai

At long last, my unit of Morghasts are finished. I spent a little over a year noodling around with these guys, but I think the final result was worth the wait (and the effort).

Wild West Exodus Hex Swamp

Those of you who went to Salute and visited the Warcradle Studios booth will have gotten to see the board I made for them. They've got some pictures of the Hex Swamp up on their blog, including a walk-around video of the board. You can also find out more information about the upcoming second edition of the Wild West Exodus miniatures game: http://blog.wildwestexodus.com/blog/2017/4/26/hex-fane


In this post I'll go through some of the process I used to build the board and show off a few detail shots of the finished board.
