Back to basics

Hey guys Sam here, apologies if the post is short, new job taking most of my time this week.

So last weekend Six Up Save hosted their second tournament with the help of Andy from Worcester Wargames. The day was a lot of fun and thank you all for attending. We enjoy running these events and hope to do a lot more in the future. Everyone who attended was friendly and brought with them a real sporting attitude towards the day which made it a pleasure to run.

So onto the scores, on the day I announced first second and third places, here is the results table.

Big congratulations to Scott, Pete and Jack for winning the tournament. Eldar, tyranids and orks in the top three :)
Commiserations to Paul for winning the spoon. (He wanted it really)

The painting competition is also a big highlight for any event that we run, it is always impressive what some people can do with this hobby and people really brought their A game.

Here are some of the pictures of the entries.

Some famtastic effort into each and every entry! It makes an event so much better to see every army so lovingly painted. 

Here are the winners of the painting competitions.

Winner of individual model Dave
Winner of vehicle Richard from the Celestial Forge
Winner of squad Bruce from Six Up Save

I did manage to get some pictures of the games, here are the ones that my camera did not ruin :).

The spoon off

The battle for first place took part over three tables.

Nids vs necrons

Dark eldar vs orks for a nailbiting draw

Eldar vs grey knights

I hope that you all enjoyed the day as much as I did and I look forward to see you at our next tournament, this time I am luckily taking part. :) Keep an eye on the blog and facebook for updates about when and what we are running in the summer. Bring your friends and hopefully next time we can have even more people attend.

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 …

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…
