Necrons Appear!

So likely not news to anyone but the new Necron book and units have finally landed.  I personally got my copy of the codex on friday and though I have not had a lot of chance to look through it in details, so far its looking quite good.

A spot of Warhammer Quest?

It may not be 40k but sometimes you have to do something a little different...

Just a quick update

A quick update as it has been a while, so yeah, it seems summer appeared and with a vengeance and partly killed my blog.  Looking around I’m not the only one either as it’s definitely apparent that it has done the same to many others.

In defence of the hobby

It may come as no surprise to you but 40k or fantasy are pretty much both games for geeks.  Yes shock horror it's true, you may not consider yourself one, but I promise you, other people do and in some cases not only geeks but full on nerds.  So Last night I came to wonder and question exactly why the genre we know and love is treated with such disdain by so many people.

Blood Angels Terminator Librarian conversion WIP

In a recent game I tried something never before given the time of day, a terminator squad inside a storm raven accompanied by a terminator librarian for support.  After performing incredibly well I have decided he deserves a model of his own and well here it is.

More Wracks and Haemonculus action

Enter the Dark Covern! After 5 boxes, 1 return due to poorly casted miniatures (seriously I didn’t take pictures but one miniature had no backpack thing and one was completely missing an arm) I have finally finished getting together the core of my wrack/haemo list.

Welcome to Baal Prime Part 1

My first ever flurry into terrain begins here.....

Finecast Wracks Review

So my FLGS usually gets new releases in a couple of days early, as such I popped in today and picked up a haemonculus and some wracks.  Now the wracks being in a box set is always a risk, especially with all the stories of miscasts, but I figured I would give them a chance.

Tuesday, 14 June 2011

Duke Conversion complete

It seems my mood is back onto the Dark Eldar again and with it a conversion attempt of the greatest in my opinion of all the HQ characters in the book, Duke Silicus.

Blog Wars 2011 Army Pictures + Review

So this weekend gone was the first ever blog wars tournament held at Maestrom games in Mansfield, hosted by Alex from fromthefang.  Though I didn’t enter it was clearly a very well run tournament, one which being in a minority of only a few spectators (coule of lads plus some WAG's) I was able to enjoy many of the games without the stress of playing myself!

Why I think Finecast is mostly awesome, despite its flaws

The first I heard about finecast was recently on bols just before the GW announcement, I have to say it was a fairly well kept secret from GW in the grand scheme of things and considering how badly they seem to be able to keep the secret of the rest of their products.

More Dark Eldar on advance order!

They have been seen ages ago on various forums but now they are finally on advance order, the razorwing, wracks, grotesque and haemonculus join the venom talos and scourges.

Saturday, 21 May 2011

Traitor Guard Army?

My flurry into the world of Chaos Guard begins....

Monday, 16 May 2011

Bye Bye Metal is confirmed

Well it appears the rumours are true and that Games Workshop are indeed phasing out metal models and replacing them with what they call 'Citadel Finecast'.

New Dark Eldar up for pre-order!!! + razorwing pic

New Dark Eldar up for pre-order!!! oh my and they look fantastic

Necrons, the answer to solving the marine vs marine problem?

Some people like it, some don’t and some don’t give a damn either way.  Marines vs Marines, we all have to agree that with so many flavours out there and how good each flavour is, they do dominate the game quite a lot.  

Monday, 18 April 2011

Quick Painting update, a generic marine done!

Just a quick update, another generic marine done, so as such the obligatory pictures here!

Saturday, 16 April 2011

First Missile Devastator Marine done!

Not nearly as glamorous as a converted jump pack Librarian but certainly very important, yes after another successful evening of painting in a row, my first (1 of 4) Missile Devastator marine is complete.

Wednesday, 13 April 2011

Blood Angels Librarian Conversion Complete!

Blood Angels jump pack Librarian conversion is now complete.

Dark Eldar Raider Work in Progress

The second of my painting attempts for my new dark eldar army, the raider.

A lengthy rant about Deep Strike

This post is titled, why deep strike is the only rule I would change in 40k 5th ed.  It will be essentially a rant, a very long rant, please bear that in mind while reading, thanks.  40k is a fun game, it was fun when I played it back when I was 10 years old and it had rulebooks just for wargear and its fun now.

First Kabalite Warrior complete

Well its been a while, I got my first warriors when the Dark Eldar were first released but I have finally got around to painting one.  Mainly to try out a different paint scheme than I'm used to in practice for my Blood Angels librarian but I'm fairly happy with how it turned out, especially considering how terrible the wyche was.

Thursday, 31 March 2011

Blood Angels Librarian Conversion

So I have attempted it before but it never really worked out all that well.  Now thanks to the grey knights (which my pre-order codex and pack of marines arrived today woo!) I can finally make a half decent plastic librarian.

The Sanguinor vs Mordrak!

Another Character Battle for you here, The Sanguinor today takes on another of the Grey Knight new boys, Mordrak (sounds more like a bad guy from lord of the rings or bad 80's cartoons to me).  

Friday, 25 March 2011

The Crusader Project begins!

They say variety is the spice of life, well I have to say I'm pretty damn bored of painting standard marines.  It was a good run, got a fair few done however I need a break and as such its time to paint my first ever Blood Angels tank my Land raider crusader with Forgeworld doors.

The Sanguinor takes on Dread Knights!

With the release of the GK coded on the horizon it was requested that our character battle champion the Sanguinor takes on a few more of the grey knight’s big nasties.  With him having already slaughtered the best of their HQ, the only thing left really are the various ultra cheese units available, Dread Knight was asked for so here it is.

Tuesday, 22 March 2011

The Sanguinor takes on Draigo

So I recently got my hands on a copy of the Grey Knights codex and after I finished whimpering in a corner about the sheer cheesy beardy bentness of it all I decided to put our champion the Sanguinor up against the Grey Knights big expensive Lord, Kaldor Draigo.

Blood Angels Terminator Finished!

First of all apologies for the long time since my last post, life and work have been a bit hectic and not much painting has got done lately, however as I have had some free time today, here is my first attempt at a Thunder hammer + Storm Shield Terminator.

RIP Daemons

I never had the biggest Chaos Daemons army.  Only 20 or so blood letters and the same number of plaguebearers, 6 flamers and some pink horrors plus daemonettes thrown in.  Combined with the daemon princes of my chaos space marines army and a great unclean one/blood thirster I got off ebay, it spend most games with counts as units standing in as fiends and such that I could never be bothered to buy.....

Flamer assault marine stage by stage

So this is the step by step process of how I paint my marines, featuring bob, the flamer assault marine.  The process took a few hours and is of course by no means anything more than glorified tabletop quality but I like to think looks decent enough even though its not quite as good as most of the other models I have done recently, I hope im not getting worse, probably just lazy.

Incomming Grey Knights, Full Pictures at last!

So they are finally here on advance order and look fantastic as expected, I can see games workshop selling a fair few of these models just to be painted, converted and kitbashed nevermind for thier ultra cheesy new codex which will sell them in truck loads.  Pictures after the jump!

How to magnetise your Blood Angels assault squads

Basic Tutorial here for you, how to magnetise your Blood Angel assault squads so that they can be both jump infantry and swoop down in some DOA action as well as ride around in those razorbacks the interwebs love so much, without having to create different models for each job.  In addition to this they are much easier to paint without their packs on.

BA Custom Devastator Sergeant

Recent I have started including Missile Devastator's in my BA DOA list, as a rear support firebase. They have done fairly well most of the time too either drawing fire away from the troops that fly in later or just nuking the hell out of things, sure sometimes they die but for their bargain price they have made it into my list to the point where the deserve to be painted.

40k Battle report 2v2 1750 each

So this is a re-play of a similar game last week, 2 v 2 Orks and Eldar vs Blood Angels and Tau, we had the same lists as before (as below) but the other players had improved theirs to try and do better this time around.

The Sanguinor vs The Dark Eldar

As special feature for you today, the dark eldar enter the fray, lets see how far our champion can get.  Fair bit of fluff here as I was bored so wanted to give it a bit of a story so beware all you TLDR fans this isn’t short!…

40k Character Battle Grand Final

Well, it has been a fun journey but with this post we come to the end of the 40k Project Character Battle.  Today’s final elite matches that will feature The Nightbringer vs The Sanguinor and Abbadon vs The Swarmlord will see a champion finally named out of the 220+ points bracket, joining Eldrad in ultimate glory! 

Tuesday, 1 March 2011

The Nightbringer vs The Swarmlord + Abbadon vs Calgar

Today’s penultimate games first of all feature The Nightbringer vs the Swarmlord.  Neither one of these combatants mess around and there is a fair chance the Swarmlord may well instant death kill the Nightbringer if he gets a wound through.

Sunday, 27 February 2011

Blogroll added!

Just a quick post to let people know I have added a blogroll to the site as I believe the community should help each other out.  If you would like your page adding, please let me know! so far it just has a selection of sites that I currently follow.

The Revenge of Ghazghkull Thraka

He’s big, he’s green and he’s very annoyed.  Seems I may have slightly dicked over our friendly neighbourhood warboss.  In a recent knockout fight I did not give him his waaagh save in the turn he was charged, as such I feel compelled to give him another shot at the cherry.  If he can beat Calgar in a 1v1 over 1 round I will allow him back into the league and play all his matches now for you lucky people.

40k Battle report, BA+Tau vs Orks + Eldar

In a break from our scheduled program.....4 Races, 2v2, People of the interwebs!, this is my first actual battle report….

Wednesday, 23 February 2011

The Sanguinor vs The Swarmlord + Nightbringer vs Calgar

Day 3 of this week’s final Elite League Character Battle and the first of today’s games is the Nightbringer vs Calgar.  Calgar in general with his power fists can hurt the Nightbringer but lets face it, if he wins this fight with the c’tan busting through his inv save it will be a miracle.  Abbadon managed to bring him down with sheer weight of attacks but with only 4 as standard I fear it’s not enough.

Tuesday, 22 February 2011

Abbadon vs The Sanguinor + Calgar vs The Swarmlord

Today’s first game we have Marine Favourite Calgar vs Nid big bug the Swarmlord.  No points for either yet (though swarmy hasn’t fought yet) so both are looking for their first scores on the board. 

Monday, 21 February 2011

Stormraven Case options UK

Bit of a hobby post for ya, like many others I invested in a Stormraven this month.  And like those many others I personally wasn’t keen on the turret/air intake at the top but thought what the hell and went with it anyway.  So here I am with my half painted Stormraven wondering just how I’m going to transport it / keep it nice and safe, after all they certainly aren’t cheap.

Abbadon vs the Nightbringer + Marneus Calgar vs the Sanguinor

So it’s Monday and half term here in the UK which means GW’s around the country are full of kids (so avoid) and the morning commute to work is fantastic and clear.  The result of this is me in an incredibly good mood right in time for today’s first elite final league matches.

Friday, 18 February 2011

The Swarmlord vs Mephiston

Onto the final Battle before the group stage and it's a big one, Tyranid uber monster the Swarmlord vs Blood Angels Librarian Mephiston.  This fight in my opinion is essentially a race against time for Mephiston to beat the Swarmlord down with his force weapon before he gets a large portion of instant death himself.  So this really comes down to psychic tests and the incredibly overpowered and cheesy shadow in the warp.

The Sanguinor Vs Ku'gath

Today’s Fight brings to you Blood Angels tough guy The Sanguinor vs the Lord of putrid’s best buddy, Ku’Gath the Plaguefather.

Wednesday, 16 February 2011

Marneus Calgar vs Ghazghkull Thraka

So Today we have for you the leader of the Ultramarines vs the Leader of the Orks, a true 'Games Workshop' Poster boys fight, good vs evil, blue vs green.  A battle of these armies is played out on many a GW store board across the world on a daily bases, many people starting with one of these two armies.  The leaders of which we don't see very often, so here they are, lets see once and for all who is the best.
