Marvel miniatures BatRep

Sam here with a marvel miniatures photo batrep.
This is my first post of this kind so please let me know how you find it. There will be a lot more like it so I hope you enjoy!
This is my 4th Game and Cats second so please leave comments if you notice us do anything out of the ordinary or any advice on what we could do differently.

The board
The game will be played on a 3-3 shipyard board with terrain from TTCombat on the dining room table for now. I need to get hold of a 3-3 mat so that Marvel games are easier in the future.
The teams
Xmen vs Xmen. 
Girls (and pool) vs boys (minus wolverine)

Cat's crew consists of 
Jean Grey, Emma Frost, Rogue and Deadpool

My crew consists of
Magneto, Cyclops, Collosus and Gambit
The mission
We are playing the mission that can be found in the XMen starter set. One team in the centre and another around the outside. The table left plenty of room for deployment.

I started in the middle and Cat with a much more mobile force deployed around the outside like this.
First turn
Magneto first
Uses two tokens to move onto a container and then uses blunt instrument to throw a container againdt Rogue and Emma.
Getting a succsessful hit and a Crit, deals 4 damage to Rogue and 3 to Emma due to her failing her agility roll. A good start!
Rogue gets up
Decides to hoof emma frost while she is down. Dealing four damage due to the crit to Emma.

Due to pictures closing my app I have had to restrict them.

Cyclops shoots deadpool with focussed beam doing 3 Damage with a crit.

Deadpool uses bang bang twice to take 3 damage off of cyclop.

Gambit uses 52 card pick up to hit deadpool for 3 more damage

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…
