Today has seen me do a lot of yawning. Mostly on the couch in front of YouTube. Spike has been round in the evening, testing my plans to destruction, well almost. Somehow most of my recent negativity seemed to have blown away. Perhaps this is down to m…

The Cabal of Eight Pt.22: Cloak and Blather

Posted on June 28th, 2017 under , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Excor (played by Cris) cut Jirek’s bindings. The young scribe was visibly in shock. He stared blankly as his rescuers fell upon the gory remains of Haxat’s corpse looting anything that appeared valuable or that they recognized as magic. Afterwards, the young mages decided to take their loot back to the cabal room and properly […]

Podcast: The Grizzled vs The Bloody Inn

Posted on June 28th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

Would it better if board games were less fun? Years ago, that might have seemed like facetious questions, but now it’s pretty deep. This week, we explore two games with a suprisingly dark bend. One lets you live out dark, paranoid fantasies, and the other forces you to reflect on the horror of war. You […]

Big Bang 13.7Note: This preview uses pre-release components and rules. What you see here may be different from the final, published game.

"Limited time" Birthday Battle Brother

Posted on June 28th, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

Where limited is about a year.

This year’s anniversary model is unsurprisingly a Primaris Space Marine.

Taken from Warhammer Community

Not a bad looking model, this is a Primaris Captain. Worth getting if you’re not too enamoured with the other captain being released soon:



primaris space marine captain
Not as special as the above Captain

These two are very similar, but I have to admit there’s something a little better about the Birthday Battle Brother.

The Birthday model will be available whenever your local shop has its opening day anniversary. It will effectively be available all year if you’re willing to travel for it.

Other than that, not much to say. With 8th Edition released, most table toppers are feverishly putting together models. enjoy the quiet time for now until the next big update. probably the Primaris Space Codex.

Until next time!
