30k apoc

Sam here. Today Jamie From Six Up Save hosted a 30k apocalypse game at Worcester wargames. The mission was simple, at the end of your movement place a flag on a piece of terrain you are on. Red for traitors, blue for loyalist. At the end of the game he who has the most flags wins. Only 6 people could attend in the end but it was a lot of fun.
Here were the players

Sam with his Iron Warriors
Jamie with his Blood Angels
Damien with his Word Bearers
Dave with his mechanicum
Mike with his Death Guard
Andy with his Ultrasmurfs

We each brought 4K and deployed dawn of war style on a 12 foot table. The terrain was split into wasteland either side of a city.

Traitors got turn one and began to rain fore down upon the enemy. 
By the end of turn two all knights bar the atrapos were dead and the real fighting could begin!
The Archeron and Paladin having a high five of death!
Turn three saw a lot of combat, with primarchs hitting squads and basilisks deleting squad after squad.
 End of game saw not much left. With both sides significantly deleted. Not many word bearers left and perturabo was on one final wound.

Loyalists won 12-9 in the end. Thank you to everyone who attended and I look forward to the next one.
Thanks to Mike from Code40K for the game mission! 
Thanks to Dave for bringing the mech and knights to the fray!
Thanks to Andy for bringing the bodies for us to shoot and hosting.
Thanks to Jamie for running the event.
Thanks to Damien for bringing the hunka hunka burning lore.

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…

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…
