Welcome to Warboss Nick's homepage

A site dedicated to tabletop modelling, painting and gaming



November 22nd, 2006: Fixed some broken links in the Tau Tactics articles.

November 9th, 2006: It's been a long, long time, but real life kept me from doing any upgrades. What I have in stock for you today is a review of the 7th Edition Warhammer Fantasy rulebook. The article is not only a basic review but also discussing some of the major changes that were made to the game. I hope it will be interesting for both veterans as well as those who are new to the game.

May 22nd, 2006: Project 500 and Tau gallery updated with new pictures.

May 14th, 2006: I'm participating in "project 500" on TabletopWelt.de with my Tau. The goal is to paint a 1500 points army in roughly five months in three sets of 500 points each. You can find a coverage of my progress in the Tau section.

May 7th, 2006: The Tau battlesuit tactica are now updated to the new codex. In addition to that I also wrote up an article on "Death Rain" crisis suits and their uses. Illustrations and pictures will hopefully follow soon to make it an even nicer read.

April 27th, 2006: I've finished the first model of my new piranhas. Pictures including close ups of the cockpit are in the Tau gallery section.

April 15th, 2006: Organisation of the Gordian Crusade updated.

March 24th, 2006: Only a quick update with a WIP recon pic and the addition of a Flames of War section which is initself very WIP...

February 8th, 2006: Chapters 3-5 of the skaven blog are online. Next in line is chapter 6, another battle report (this time with pictures!)...

February 2nd, 2006: Translated chapter 2 of the skaven blog. Just don't expect me to keep up that pace - I drank too much strong, black tea tonight and now I'm pushing through the night...

February 1st, 2006: Back in Mai 2005 I started a blog for my skaven army on a German forum. Now I'm desperately trying to catch up with translating it and turning it into HTML starting today. Done: Intro and chapter 1 (battle report number one).

January 28th, 2006: I hope you all had a happy new year. For me the year started with the new dwarfs, and it motivated me to finish some of my models and - probably more important to you - take some pictures. Now there is finally a real dwarf gallery, and I might add some coverage on my return to Thyngaz-a-Galazak, the golden highland forrests of my dwarfs.

December 23rd, 2005: Merry season's greetings to all of you. I have immensly enjoyed the past year that has seen a constant rise of popularity for this website. Thank you very much for your kind interest. Have a merry christmas, a happy new year and beware of ol' Santu Klawz!

December 20th, 2005: Finally the first Warmaster pictures are up - High Elves. I guess the dwarfs will have to wait until I've fixed their bases.

November 18th, 2005: Added pictures of new and revised models to the Skaven gallery and updated the WIP section.

September 26th, 2005: Reorganized the Tau pages and added a few pictures to the Tau gallery section. It's not as much as I would have liked to add - I really need to take some more pictures of those models.

August 17th, 2005: Updated the BFG diary after realising that I was almost two years short of the actual progress. More to come either this week or at the start of September. I might even add a seperate BFG gallery then.

June 20th, 2005: Updated and restructured the links page and included some new sites.

June 10th, 2005: This update has taken some time, but at least I have completed my move in real life. I was able to do some painting, so watch out for more painted models on this site in the future. I'll start with the Skaven, where I added updated pics of my clanrats, as well as some fresh painted warlocks, giant rats and jezzails.

April 27th, 2005: Whoops! Has it really been so long? Moving in real life has kept me busy and I'm just about to set up new headquarters. However, I've restructured and updated the reviews section. I hope it will prove usefull to you.

January 8th, 2005: Another fluff update with two new skaven stories.

January 1st, 2005: Happy New Year and the best wishes for 2005 - and may the dice be with you!

August 6th, 2004: I added another new section - a terrain gallery. So far pictures of my jungle terrain and barricades are online.

August 4th, 2004: Thanks to Shas'O Bob for pointing out I forgot the twinlinked plasma rifle + shield generator combo as well as the twinlinked missile pod variant in my evaluation of Tau battlesuit armaments. I've taken care of that and added some colour to the layout. I also added a sample army list for Black Templars.

August 3rd, 2004: I added a tactics section ("Nick's Sand Table"). So far there's only one article on Tau battlesuits, but stay tuned for more.

April 20th, 2004: Small update - added a picture of the painted big shootaz in the modelling and painting tips, as well as the full mob of shoota boyz in the ork gallery (o.k., I admit, Lutennunt Markuz himself is still missing).

March 26th, 2004: Updated the WIP section to add pictures of the modified tankbustaz' nob and the kommandoz I'm working on.

December 7th 2003: A new section is up: Blood Bowl, with league news, rooster and pictures of the Littenweiler Crocos, my Orc team for Blood Bowl.

November 19th 2003: I finally managed to take some picture of my skaven army and write a little introduciory text about them.

October 30th 2003: Added the arrival of Lt. Snoopz at Thrunzdar Tonzateef's to Da Forun Ork Exchange Progrum. Credit goes to Erik for this one, as I only did the layout.

October 24th 2003: I changed the colours for the ork pages and added a different font on some of them (Negatori, if you are wondering. If you don't have it, the text will turn up in Arial). I have also started working on my Skaven coverage.

October 8th 2003: Added new pics to the Ork elites' section and started a coverage of Da Forun Ork Exchange Progrum.

August 20th 2003: Black Templars, Tau and Dwarfs are up. The dwarf gallery only includes two small pictures though, but the background for the dwarfs is up.
