2016

Sam here wishing everyone a belated happy new year and posting about what 2016 has in store for Six Up Save.

Last year saw the beginning of six up save, a new member to the group, our first group tournament and lots of laughs. This year we almost mirror that in the first two months by hosting a tournament in february and welcoming our tenth member Cat to the group.

It is our current aim to host three tournaments this year. Starting with back to basics in February which limits everyons cad in a minimalistic and nostalgic way. In june we hope to run a doubles tournament in which everyone counts as allies of convenience for some awesome yet unbroken alliances. Finally in september we aim to run another skirmish event, a competitive free for all similar to last years.

As well as our own tournaments we plan on attending Bristol Vanguards Vanquish on the 2nd-3rd of April. Last year Sam, Bruce, Damien and Matt went and had a great time.

We will begin our batman league soon after that which will feature most of Six Up and several other friends from our FLGS Worcester War Games. Details, scores and batreps for this will be posted onto the blog.

And as well as all of this we are working away on all of our armies.

I am adding lots to my krieg this year and aim to finish the regiment before moving onto completing my iron warriors.
Bruce is creating a 30k blood angels force and is thinking about starting necrons.
Damien is collecting a lot of daemonkin and painting them in the style of the word bearers.
Jamie shouler as usual has lots of projects on the go but is focussing on his world eaters.
Jamie Stevens has began painting his orks and has recently added some armour to his snake bites.
Martin has a few more units to complete before his 6000 eldar are finished. Then onto dark eldar.

Charles is in the process of making his tau army and plans to field it at back to basics.

Paul is nearly finished with his speed freaks and is eying up badger riding dwarves from kings of war.

Matt is repainting his dark eldar to match a new scheme he has chosen, working on his inquisitorial allies for his iron hands and has began work on his corsairs.
Cat is getting her first 1500 of eldar fully painted for back to basics.

So we all have a lot of hobby going on at the moment. Stay tumed for updates from each of us and we hopefully will see you at the Wocester War Games or at tournaments.

Confessions of a Warhammer Wife

Confessions of a Warhammer Wife

Bruce’s obsession with Warhammer was only revealed to me during our second year of dating. We had been together a long time by then – had even lived together for the majority of that time while at University. And still I didn’t know about this one aspect of Bruce’s nerd-dom. When Bruce and I first began dating I was fully aware of – even besotted by - his nerdy credentials. Together we had played hours of Halo 3 and Mario Kart, swapped manga and even visited the cinema for a solo late night screening of Star Trek. Yet this did not prepare me for what would become one of his main loves in life.
It all started back in 2012. We had been living separately back at our parents’ homes after University – me in Yorkshire, he in Worcester. I would often travel down to visit him and on one such occasion I was told of a new friend Bruce had made through work. Damien. They had apparently bonded when Bruce had taken on old model – a Tyranid Warrior I believe – into his …

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 …

Led kits and knights

Sam here with a small write up to review a product I have got recently which I think is just plain awesome.
I am starting an imperial Knight army at the moment and wanted to somethig to make them pop a little more (they will be bright yellow so needed something rather extravegant) so I had seen some pictures online of people who had added LED's to their knights and was hooked.
I searched the internet for some sources and found that it did not easily yield any obvious choices. A lot of expensive kits appeared for remote control cars and model train kits but I wanted something with one battery, switch and two led's without the hasstle of soldering myself.
Then I came accross this website 
http://www.smallscalelights.co.uk
Easy to navigate
Low cost
Range of products
Fantastic customer service! I had emails with instructions arrive upon payment as well as shilling information.
All in all it cost me around £10 for the kit including the battery I had to buy seperate.

Using the kit
The kit was …
