New Releases from Zenit!

New models for the Orphans line!

So coming up after my run through with Alkemy I'm going to review and play through Nemesis from Zenit Miniatures.  I've had a lot of personal interest in this line as I love the Orphans and The Cult of Thousand faces lines...they have such great personality and style.  All in all there are currently 5 factions, the other three being The Not Alives (which I also think are pretty sweet), The Kingdom of God (some of these I love, some of them I don't) and the newest faction the Rocaviva (these are my third fav! but there are only a few models).

So the one thing that separates this game from all the others is that the rules are free in their entirety and carry a Creative Commons license so that means ANYONE can help with development in this game, and they look to their community for help in advancing the game.  Now it's a Spanish company so speaking the native language might help here, but they do have English versions.  :P

You can find the rules for Nemesis here:

And if you have not seen the line yet you can find the homepage here:

And the galleries for each force can be found by clicking the round banners at the top.

Keep an eye out for a mini's review in an upcoming Episode of the video blog!!!

Til next time keep your paints thinned and your brushes clean!

Coming up!

So with the launch of the video blog, some exiting things are happening around here, and I'd like to share what's on the horizon.  I've got a lot of great things planned for the coming months and the rest of the year, more demo's, more giveaways, more interviews, more content including tips and tricks for painting your mini's, gaming tactics, building terrain, army building and insight, some sneak previews and of coarse maor fun!!!

One thing I really want to stress is that the content here is geared towards not only what I want to share, but what YOU guys and gals want to see!!  I want the Throne of Angels blog and video blog to cater to the audience, followers (and hopefully fans) so please send in requests!  Speaking of requests, the first one has arisen, so coming up in a few episodes will be a demo for the game Alkemy!!!  I just received my order last Friday, I snagged a few boxes of Aurlocks and some Jade Triad.

And running along the lines of demo's next episode we'll be spending some time playing Dark Age Apocalypse!!!

One of the things I'm going to start doing more of is using the blog as a hobby chronicle and start posting what I'm working on.  Work has been crazy lately so my hobby table is full of awesome stuff that I just haven't been able to put my mitts on yet.  So in the coming weeks I expect to be sharing progress on a number of these projects, as well as whatever else pops up.

On deck I'll be squaring up my Black Sun force for Anima Tactics, currently I've got the Black Sun starter open and contents spread about waiting for cleaning and assembly, following that, there's the Raziel Archetypum, Clover, a Type-012 (maybe 2!) and the most amazing Raziel NK-X!!!

Type-012 Hunter

Raziel NK-X

I've also got some Dragyri Air Caste on order to go with my recently reviewed starter and Arbiter of Balance for Dark Age Apoc as well as Cang the Implacable and the aforementioned Alkemy boxes.  And like all good gamers and hobbiests I have quite a few other projects sitting here waiting to be addressed!! :P

More updates to come and keep an eye out for the next Episode coming soon!!!

Till next time, keep paints thinned and your brushes clean.
