Just a quick post, I squeezed in a quick play time with the airbrush to see what I could do with my over primed HoG terrain. I just messed adding various colours to see what they would come out like. Here’s the result.
Still a way to go obviously, also need to practice with my airbrush aiming skills 😉 However I did feel like I made some progress experimenting on this piece. I’m not sold on my tree colour yet. Need to keep thinking on that.

Following on from the previous Warcry post where I built the Heart of Ghur terrain here’s the first post about painting the terrain. I expect painting the terrain is going to take up way more than one blog article. I have previously painted up the original Warcry starter set terrain and the Ravaged Lands Corpsewrack Mausoleum, both as commissions believe it or not, so I was striving for a bit of speed to get the job done. Both used multiple spray cans to get the base layers down to build up the colour scheme from. In an attempt to speed up the painting process I decided to use different colour rattlecan spray primers for the base layers of my Heart of Ghur terrain. Given that the Heart of Ghur (I’m getting sick of typing that, so from now on it is HoG) terrrain is natural in nature rather than ‘man made’ buildings i thought that more colours might be a good idea.
One of 2022’s impulse buys was the Warcry second edition starter box Warcy: Heart of Ghur. Way back in 2019 I bought the first edition starter, and loved playing it, even winning a local event with my Splintered Fang warband at the, now sadly closed, LGS. I can’t explain what it was but I ended buying Heart of Ghur, and then it sat in a box, unopened – still sealed in fact – until last week. My recent review of 2022 post got me thinking about unstarted/unfinshed projects. I just felt the need to start a clean slate, do something different and new.
Warcry has proved to be a staple of a Tuesday evening’s gaming at Rogue Games. For a few weeks now, there has been talk about getting our Warbands questing for glory. A week last Tuesday night (yes its taken that long to get this written) Andy and myself embarked our warbands upon their Quests. In a characteristically last minute unorganised manner I had set up my campaign roster moments before leaving for the store, and quickly printed it, using GW’s Varanscribe.
Warcry has unexpectedly captured my attention since its release in August. It was a game I didn’t think I would enjoy and I certainly didn’t plan on buying into the game. However after a watching and playing a couple of demo games I found I actually really enjoyed it. I have since played in two events and play it most weeks at Rogue Games’ store. From a personal point of view, like most table top games, it is more enjoyable to play with painted models over painted terrain. For the second of the two events I volunteered to paint one of the Warcry terrain sets for Rogue Games – the Corpsewrack Mausoleum, in fact during the first event I played all three of my games this over the bare plastic set (I wonder did this in any way influence my decision lol). This is a brief rundown of how I went about painting the Corpsewrack Mausoleum.
This is a quick write up about my first Warcry tournament which was hosted by Rogue Games in Leyland. Over the last week or so I’ve been frantically putting paint on models to allow me to play in the event on Saturday afternoon. There was no painting requirement, I just prefer to play with painted models, especially in events. I played 3 very good games of Warcry as part of the event with my Splintered Fang warband.
