Worcester Wargames 40K Doubles .

It's that time of year again! The Six Up Save lads are painting last mintue details and packing our carry cases in preparation for another one of Worcester Wargames awesome local Tournaments.

This years contest comes with a twist; the doubles teams will be paired up at random! From what we are given to understand Andy (the TO) is pairing people up with respective armies (Imperium with Imperium, Orks with Orks etc) but we wont know exactly who our teammates are until the morning of the Tourney.

The day will consist of 3 games, one person on each team will be playing Maelstrom objectives and his teammate will be playing for standard objectives on the same board, so it will be an interesting mix up of normal game rules.

I'm taking my Redeemer's, but due to lack of time / laziness I'm just taking the exact same list as my Six Up Save League. It's hardley optimised for competitive gameplay, but its fun, fluffy and means I don't have to stress about painting anything.>_<

Elite - Furioso, Frag Cannon, Heavy Flamer, Droppod.

Troop: Pink Horror (x16)
Heavy: SoulGrinder, Harvester Cannon, Phlem Bombardment, Iron Claw.

Martin's Eldar

I've decided to stay away from the temptation to take an army of Wraith Knights/Guard with D-Weapons, so I've used my League list with just a small change in the hope that whoever I get paired up with brings all the big guns, giving us both the speed of my list plus the heavy firepower of theirs.

Ive taken a Craftworld Warhost which gives my units a guaranteed 6" run

Within the detachment Ive got:
Windrider Host (Giving me Shred on my Shuriken weapons once per game):
Skyrunner Fareer
Vyper with Brightlance, Shuriken Cannon and Holo-fields
Skyrunner Warlock
3x 4man Windriders, all upgraded with Shuriken Cannons

Aspect Host (All units in this formation get +1 BS)
4x Dark Reapers and an Exarch. The reapers are equipped with Starshot missiles and the Exarch has an Eldar missile Launcher.
4x Fire Dragons and an Exarch
5x Warp Spiders and an Exarch

Sam's List

Taken lots of FW goodness for a hopefully well rounded list due to the unpredictability of a random partner and different missions.

Level 3 Pysker to roll on Malefic, Pyromancy and Telepathy
Spell Familiar
Terminator Armour
Burning brand

two squads of 5 marines
Rhino with Combi Melta and Bolter
Melta gun
Combi Melta, Lightning Claw, Melta Bomb on Sergeants

Nurgle spawn x 1
Nurgle spawn x 1
Nurgle spawn x 1

Fire Raptor with Reaper Cannons
Relic Predator with Plasma Destroyer
Rapier Platform with Cyclothrane Conversion Beamer

Should have a bit of everything whilst retain an Iron Warriors feel to the list


  1. It can safely be said that everyone had a great day at the Tournament!! A massive Thankyou to Mike from Code40K and Andy from Worcester Wargames for running the event. Six Up Save memebers did extremely well on the day with Sam and his partner winning, Martin and his partner coming in 2nd and Dae and his partner taking 3rd. Just to add to this Paul's Army took the prize for best painted and he also won the wooden spoon award!!

    Congrats to all!!

  2. Glad you all had a good time official results will be posted up today. Cheers Mike

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…
