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 …

Echoes of War

Hello everyone, Sam here with a write up on another awesome weekend of dice and fun in Cardiff. Our hosts for the weekend, the Vale Renegades  are a group that we met over a year ago at a tournament in Bristol and since then have attended several of each other’s tournaments. Echoes of War was an ITC event with 34 competitors at the fantastic venue of Firestorm Games. This post is going to have a brief overview of the day as well as a few pictures and synopsis of all 5 games that I had over the weekend. So Sam, Bruce, Chris, Jamie and Jack were joined by Jack’s brother Scott (making them the Brothers Grimdark), Tom Baker from Code40K and Battered Bristles ( ( and Ian, made the 2 hour or so drive down to Cardiff for a weekend of games. A few of us had been to their last tournament Seeds of Destruction last September and were very excited about returning. Prior to the event, the Vale Renegades shared a list of all…

Games Workshop's Live Q&A; Thoughts On 8th Edition.

Hey guys, it's Bruce here with our first blog update in a long old while.

If you are reading this blog, chances are you know a thing or two about tabletop games, so you probably know that GW just officially confirmed what we all knew was coming: a new edition of Warhammer 40k!
I sat down this afternoon and watched GW's amazing live Q&A session and I've made notes on all the big changes they have confirmed will come with the new edition.

Lets take a look:

Big image behind the two hosts (Pete Foley, heading the team behind 8th ed and Andy Smilie, the head of the community team) is a large space marine helmet, blue on one side and green on the other. Probably hinting at the Ultramarine / Deathguard starter set?Andy repeatedly mentions that a huge amount of the rules have been created using feedback from the Facebook page and online forums like Bolter and Chainsword / Dakkadakka etc.Movement is changing. No longer blanket ruling different types of units (infantry, beasts, bike…
