Join us as we get stuck into the new 40k board game, Lost Patrol from Games Workshop and have it ready to hit the table.

Beasts of War Warhammer 40k Lost Patrol Project Vlog

Justin is taking care of the miniatures and Warren is is working on some cool extras to bring this deadly jungle to life.

Lost Patrol - It Begins

2 Comments

Games Workshop have sent us this amazing Lost Patrol box with all the miniatures and tiles involved. As we're gamers and hobbyists we're obviously eager to get playing straight away.

Justin's going to be working on the models and as Dawn of War III has been announced, I think it's time for a gritty paint job for the deadly jungle.

I have in mind an upgrade in terrain, I wish to create some 2.5D pieces to place on the board and use some of the spare plants I have boxed away.

Lost Patrol - Building The Extra Terrain

While Justin gets the models built, I've got some plans to create some additional terrain for the placeable tiles.

I've gathered up some spare clay and my trusty aquarium foliage to start some cool features.

Lost Patrol - The Votes Are In!

We left the voting overnight and it looks like John has won the vote with his mottled green effect. It's time now to start priming.

We're getting experimental with the Blood Ravens and the terrain has finally dried overnight, ready for the next stage.

Quick update, I'm off now TO GET MARRIED! I'm handing the torch to Lloyd to take over the rest of the build and Johns up to something sneaky in the Hobby cave.

Great fun. Haven’t seen a 40K sprue in hand since Space Crusade in my youth. Would be nice to see how this plays and see if I introduce my son to this world via Lost Patrol. Price seems good. If it looks like you enjoy the play through I may get it.

For the Xenomorph look, you could try priming black and then giving them a very light dry brush of a dark metalic color to get the metalic shimmer, and then gloss coat.

Green Flesh with Purple Carapace (Yuk!) (6%, 1 Votes) is how I plan to do mine, but with a nice coat of Liquitex Iridescent Medium on the carapace. Maybe a couple different greens.

The John way, but also match the other colours of the plants (red, yellow etc) in small areas

I’m thinking “dark blue + yellow camo pattern”
Kind of like the some reptiles and frogs :

Just because even our earth jungle is green that doesn’t mean the animals are too.
Reality can be stranger than fiction.

purple and blue – a good contrast for brown and green jungle/ red scouts

Great idea to do this vlog as the day progresses, you should do more videos like this! Looking forward to seeing how tomorrow unfolds.

You can have too much green, and whilst I appreciate camo, you don’t want to lose the genestealers altogether. For example, Tigers hide amazingly well in the jungle but they’re sure not green.

Not green? Haven’t you seen He-Man?

Oh dear, you got my mind blowing away. How about a game with some Catachan Jungle fighters as proxies. Sly Marbo here I come.

I’m not sure what blows me away more, your awesome work or the fact GW actually sent you one of their products…

Feckin Ell! GW are really changing their tune. Gone are the days of stopping you doing review videos to now sending you something early so it can be done up all shiny and painted prior to release.

Time for me to go and faint in a corner…

Jon the green army paint you used on the Genestealers, did you use it straight from the bottle or was it thinned down with water? Thanks in advance for your answer.

For the jungle floor:

I gave up smoking about the time my blood pressure started getting bad, and took up drinking green tea. So, for the last few years I have been drying out the green tea bags and dumping the used, dried tea in containers and stashing the empty bags away. The tea makes great scatter and the bags work for painting up miniature flags and banners. The price is right and leaves me enough pocket change for a new mini now and then, or a bottle of Laphroaig to make up for the healthy effects of all that tea-drinking. — Doug.
