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.

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…

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…
