Nananananana... Batman!

Howdy Sixupsavers, Bruce here with a quick spot on the (relatively) new Batman Minis Game that's gaining some serious popularity lately.

Damien and I first bought into this game way back in the BETA phase, when the core rule book came as a terribly translated Spanish PDF. We really struggled with the rules and didn't really have the right kind of terrain to fully get to grips with it.

However, when the hardback version of the rule book came out, our Local Game Store "Worcester Wargames" created a totally bad-ass new gaming board that was perfect for Batman. With renewed vigour, Damien and I dug out our old models and started trying to learn the rules.




Just look at this beautiful bastard!


After demoing a few games and interest started picking up, the other Six Up Save guys started getting invested too.
Now we are all feverishly getting our crew's painted up and ready to rumble, so in the new year we'll be hosting a Six Up Save Batman Minis League. In the mean time, here's a few pics of who's got what. :)


Bruce's Joker and Harley Crews:




Martin's Riddler Crew:



Jamie #1's League of Shadows:



Jamie #2's Crooked Cops:
And a few other side projects



Sam's Bane Crew:



Damien's Batman team:


Charles' Batwoman Team:



And special guest starring Rachael's Gotham Sirens:


That's all for now folks, but coming up soon we'll have some Batreps and some WIP pics of Andy's second Batman board at the awesome Worcester Wargames. Then in the new year we'll have our first Six Up Save Batman League. Who knows, if we can get enough people in Worcester interested, maybe we could host a BMG tourney?

As always, you can leave us feedback below, grab us on Facebook or just come speak to us in store.
Peace.

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 (http://code40k.blogspot.co.uk/) (https://www.facebook.com/Batteredbristles) 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…
