The Return of the Wulfen!!

Greetings all,

Jamie #1 Here, I have been working on my Wulfen for the last 2 weeks and have almost finished them, just small details to touch up. Then it dawned on me that since it is a miracle that I have actually painted something within a couple of weeks of buying it, I should celebrate with a blog post.

First off I had some issues with getting the body on the legs, the whole assembly was odd if im honest but did allow for some customization. You are given all the weapons you can dream of so all the frost and hammers that a space wolf could want.

After finally getting everything assembled which did take a ridiculous amount of time (Most likely due to my own abilities) while following the handy instructions that were provided, I had a 5 Man squad of Wulfen ready to tear something part... Once they get painted that is but that's a small detail in my world.



I have to say these models where quite fun to paint all be it fiddly and frustrating at times, with weapons and pelts getting in the way on several occasions. I wanted to try something different with my weapons by giving them a frost effect. After a trial on some wolf claws on a terminator.



Which I was very happy with I decided that this would be the effect on all close combat weapons in the army.

The Wulfen Pack Leader in my honest opinion needed to have a change in stance as that Kung Fu Crane was just silly, I swapped one of the feet to push the model forward to make it look like he was charging rather than asking to be killed like a Cultist. This has to be my favourite model out of the unit.


The rest of the unit consists of 2 shield and thunder hammer Wulfen for much needed survivability for the unit to make it to combat, otherwise they would die before making it there which would make me a sad panda.


Followed swiftly by a Frost Axe Wulfen to cleave through units and those tasty wraith knights that we love to beat up. Normally left to the thunderwolves but now i have a new unit that will be designated for monster hunting.



Last but not least is the remaining Wulfen with a pair of frost claws which can kill most things with ap2 str 6 attacks.


Overall these models have been fun to paint and a pain to assemble and I cant wait to use them on the tabletop, until then Keep on fighting.

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…
