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 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!

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 …

30K army and first outing for the iron warriors

Hey guys, Sam here wanting to share a little about the progress of my iron warriors and my first heresy game in 6 months!
About a year ago I began collecting a pre-heresy Salamander army. I Enjoyed playing it and took it to a few events. Then I read Angel Exterminatus, Iron Warriors omnibus and Storm of Iron. This persuaded me to abandon the green armoured emperor loving pansies and begin a legion with real metal! in the words of The D: "you can't kill the metal!"

Iron Warriors really appealed to me because they struck me as a legion which could be used for dual purpose as well as having a lot of components that I like. I run these as chaos marines as well as pre heresy marines. Their pragmatism and seige warfare is cool as well as them being undivided, so I can run them with either daemon army :)
So my army as it stands is around 6000 points with Perturabo (next order) and I am nearly at the end of a collection. There are a few units here and there but overall I think I…

Super Dungeon Explore!

Hey all, Bruce here with yet another side project I'm working on.


I've recently found myself the proud owner of both the original Super Dungeon Explore board game and the more recent Super Dungeon Explore V2; The Forgotten King.

For those of you who have never seen / played Super Dungeon Explore, it plays like a classic dungeon crawler (think Space Crusade or Hero Quest) but with an adorable Chibi-style anime theme. The game started off as a kick-starter project by "Soda Pop Miniatures" and they are working on a kick-starter for a third game to release at the end of the year.



I came across this game purely by chance, rummaging around the Firestorm Games Store in Cardiff whilst Sam, Charles, Jamie #2 and I were attending the Vale Renegades' most recent tourney which was hosted there. As I was rooting through all the amazing board games, collectables and miniatures I found a little box with a single mini in it. The "Tabbybrook Mage". The model caught my e…
