Six Up Save!

Welcome to the Six Up Save Blog!
We are a small group of lads from the West Midlands in the UK who paint, model and play tabletop wargames.
As a group we cover several systems, Batman Knight Minis, Starwars Armarda, Deadman's Hand but our main focus is currently Warhammer 40,000.

This blog will (hopefully) follow our exploits across inter-group leagues, local and national tournaments as well as taking a focused look at our armies, list building guides, painting tips and neat conversion ideas.

To start off, let's take a look at our current member roster and their chosen armies:

Bruce - Blood Angels, Tyranids and Chaos Marines

Damien - Orks, White Scars and Khorne Daemonkin

Sam - Nurgle Daemons, Tzeentch Daemons and Chaos Undivided / 30K Iron Warriors

Matt - Iron hands/Clan Raukaan and Dark Eldar

Stone- Necrons and Tzeentch Daemons

Jamie- Space Wolves and Orks

Charles- Tyranids

Martin- Eldar and Dark Eldar

Paul- Nurgle Chaos Space Marines

Several of our members have recently been taking part in the local tournament scene run by Worcester Wargames and the Code Design team, and at the end of April Sam, Matt, Damien and Bruce had a blast at the Bristol Vanguard tourney.

We have a diverse bunch of members, some who have been playing for years and some who have very recently started. Some of us are more into the modelling side of the hobby, where others prefer to focus more on the gaming side of things. 
Although some of us do enjoy the tournament scene, most of our games are casual, fluffy or narrative led games. It is my hope to post bat reps with pictures or links to our YouTube channel so you can enjoy the stories we create on the tabletop.

Thanks for visiting, please feel free to comment, leave us feedback and share your own pics / vids / stories in the comments below. :)

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…
