Warhammer World!

What a weekend!

Damien, Bruce and Martin enjoying the life-sized Rhino a little too much.



First off I want to say that if you ever get the chance to visit Warhammer World in Nottingham, you should absolutely go for it!

We had a few issues to start off with, due to some personal issues and work conflicts, a few of us were unable to make it which was a real shame, however Paul, Damien, Martin, Jamie, Matt and myself (Bruce here >_<) all spent the day mooching around the amazing dioramas, eyeballing the awesome merch and best of all playing a huge 12,000 point game on WW's incredible City of Death board "Spyral Prime".


Just take a look at that! o_0

FULL ARMY LISTS TO FOLLOW SHORTLY.

 
We used a combination of Maelstrom of War Mission 1 rules mixed with the White Dwarf "Cities of Death" Objective cards to really make the best use of the heavy terrain. We set up with Dawn of War deployment, and the forces of Chaos won the roll off, choosing to go first. After deploying our units, Martin threw the "Seize the Initiative" dice and scored a mighty 6, meaning the loyal forces of the Imperium could make a might Alfa-strike before the traitor legions could react. FOR THE EMPEROR!

A stealthy Assassin under the employ of the Iron Hands takes aim at a stampeding Daemon Prince
A mighty Knight Errant stomps its way down the left flank.



The Death Company known as "The Screaming Death" attempt to hold ground against a rampaging Soulgrinder of Khorne.


Two Rhinos full of Plague Marines shield a stampeding Hellbrute from a hail of Dreadnaught artillery. 

Damien and Paul devise a scheme of pure evil to thwart those pesky do-gooders.


Black Maru has a "Gandalf the Grey" style showdown with a ferocious Bloodthirster of Khorne on a crumbling bridge high above the city.


The game came to a close on turn 6, and despite taking heavy casualties the forces of The Imperium came out on top with more victory points to claim victory in the name of the God Emperor.

We had a really fantastic time at Warhammer World and I'm hoping the whole group can make it for a return visit at the end of the year. We've been eyeing up WW's impressive Apocolypse board for a game of truly epic proportions!

Confessions of a Warhammer Wife

Confessions of a Warhammer Wife

Bruce’s obsession with Warhammer was only revealed to me during our second year of dating. We had been together a long time by then – had even lived together for the majority of that time while at University. And still I didn’t know about this one aspect of Bruce’s nerd-dom. When Bruce and I first began dating I was fully aware of – even besotted by - his nerdy credentials. Together we had played hours of Halo 3 and Mario Kart, swapped manga and even visited the cinema for a solo late night screening of Star Trek. Yet this did not prepare me for what would become one of his main loves in life.
It all started back in 2012. We had been living separately back at our parents’ homes after University – me in Yorkshire, he in Worcester. I would often travel down to visit him and on one such occasion I was told of a new friend Bruce had made through work. Damien. They had apparently bonded when Bruce had taken on old model – a Tyranid Warrior I believe – into his …

Death korps of Krieg

Hello everyone, Sam here, it has been a while since I have posted on here and wanted to share what I have been working on. My first loyalist (shudder) army. Also my first guard army. 
Over the past 10 months or so I have been slowly building and painting a Death Korps of Krieg army using the seige of Vraaks book. I have been attempting a unit a week but like we all do my attention and attitude towards painting blows hot and cold.
I was origionally drawn to Krieg due to their post apocalyptic / menacing appearance and thought that they would be perfect for a renegades army. However the more that I read and planned the army, the more interested in the Krieg themselves that I became. This lead me to my first order of death riders and the other more krieg units. This is not to say that i wont experiment with renegades as i have found some wicked looking zombie krieg models that I may incorperate in the future. I expect this army to play in a totally different style to those I currently use …

Led kits and knights

Sam here with a small write up to review a product I have got recently which I think is just plain awesome.
I am starting an imperial Knight army at the moment and wanted to somethig to make them pop a little more (they will be bright yellow so needed something rather extravegant) so I had seen some pictures online of people who had added LED's to their knights and was hooked.
I searched the internet for some sources and found that it did not easily yield any obvious choices. A lot of expensive kits appeared for remote control cars and model train kits but I wanted something with one battery, switch and two led's without the hasstle of soldering myself.
Then I came accross this website 
http://www.smallscalelights.co.uk
Easy to navigate
Low cost
Range of products
Fantastic customer service! I had emails with instructions arrive upon payment as well as shilling information.
All in all it cost me around £10 for the kit including the battery I had to buy seperate.

Using the kit
