The Daughter of Lahmia

Posted on May 5th, 2015 under , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

As I mentioned in my return post, I’m working on an Undead warband for Mordheim. I’ve always toyed with Undead armies. I’ve found the background fascinating and the models – for the most part – pretty awesome. The two things that always stayed my hand were the fairly (and by fairly I mean very) dull core […]

Special Ammunition

Posted on April 28th, 2015 under , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

6 months ago I took a leave of absence. My life was getting very complicated and things were reaching a critical mass that would have seen, amongst other things, myself explode like a poodle in a microwave. Things are much better. Still complicated but I am happier. It’s taken a lot of reflection and a […]

#warmonger of the year 2014

Posted on December 27th, 2014 under , , , . Posted by

Apologies for putting this up later than planned. Things in my world aren’t settled yet. Improving but not there yet. And beyond these very rare updates I’m still not sure when, if ever, this site will be back up to speed. However, regardless of how daft things get with me I still get to do […]

Low Ammo

Posted on November 30th, 2014 under . Posted by

It’s with a great deal of sadness that I must announce that The Shell Case will be going on indefinite hiatus. The site has been plagued by misfortune since May with the long-term plans for the site falling through, the team of contributors I’d worked hard to build gradually dropping out and disbanding and the […]

Arkham Knight Gameplay Trailer

Posted on November 24th, 2014 under , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Warning: May cause sticky pants.

This game looks epic. I mean really epic. And the combat seems to have been refined to the point of perfection. I cannot wait for this game. Or for someone to give me an XBox One to play it on. Hint hint.

Ork Gorkanaut – A Review

Posted on November 20th, 2014 under , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

This review is later than planned because my daughter selfishly got sick and meant all my evenings were spent caring for her instead of building the Gorkanaut. I’ve still not finished it but I’m far enough along that I can confidently review it. It’s awesome. Review over. As if! My opinions can never be confined to […]

So this looks awesome.

Fast Movers in 40k

Posted on November 2nd, 2014 under , , , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Last Thursday I got a game of 40k in using my new Ork army. As it was their second outing I thought I’d mix it up a bit and give the Dakkajet a try because, well it’s freaking cool. For reasons passing my understanding, I told Lee I’d be taking a flyer which prompted him […]

Leaked Age of Ultron Footage

Posted on October 31st, 2014 under , , , , , , , , . Posted by

It didn’t take long but a teaser has been leaked on to the interwebs from the up coming Avengers: Age of Ultron that sets things up for Civil War.

Now to build a time machine so I don’t have the agonising wait!

Warhammer 40,000: Regicide

Posted on October 30th, 2014 under , , , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

So another Warhammer 40,000 game is in production. This time it’s 40k Chess. To be honest I have no feelings one way or the other on how good or not it will be. Or even how advisable it is to make a 40k version of the original strategy game when Games Workshop spend a lot […]

Halo 2 Anniversary Cinematic Trailer

Posted on October 30th, 2014 under , , , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

I love the Halo games. Even Halo 2 which was pretty weak compared to its siblings. Even the huge graphics boost the second game got over its older brother couldn’t hide the fact that the game felt rushed and the story a little confused. I’ve played it through many times since it’s release in 2004 […]

Avengers Age of Ultron Extended Trailer

I cannot wait for this film.

More Tyranid Images

It wouldn’t be a Tyranid release without a deluge of mental looking new kits and it looks this one is no exception…

Tyranids Sighted

Posted on October 27th, 2014 under , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Okay, it’s not much but this gribbly sod makes it pretty clear that the Tyranids are about to have another reboot. Most Tyranid players will be delighted after the last two codices were pretty sucky. Let’s hope this edition bucks the trend. Having had a couple of Tyranid armies over the years I, for one, […]

Halo: Nightfall Trailer

Posted on October 23rd, 2014 under , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

The goodies are coming thick and fast today. Below is the first proper Halo: Nightfall trailer ahead of the shows launch in November. Halo: Nightfall focuses on Jameson Locke, a playable character in Halo 5. In Nightfall, he’s part of a squad investigating a biological weapon that only affects humans. It’s being produced by Ridley […]
