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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

Oh it’s on…

And it’s out in time for my birthday. And what a happy birthday it will be.

Kurak Alliance Fleet Guide – A Review

Posted on October 18th, 2014 under , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Continuing on from looking at the second edition rules, it seemed only right to take a look at one of the Fleet Guides released by Spartan in answer to the recurring grumble that there were no defined army lists or background. Never let it be said that Spartan don’t listen. Whilst not the cheapest of […]

Fancy Some Open Combat?

Storm Zone: Battle for Valhalla – A Review

Posted on October 13th, 2014 under , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Part 2 of my Firestorm Armada second edition review is finally here. Apologies for yet another long delay. There’s a lot going on in my world at the moment and it’s pulling me away from the site far more than I’d like. But anyway… Storm Zone: Battle for Valhalla is the starter set released by […]

Thon Available to Buy

Posted on October 10th, 2014 under , , . Posted by

You may remember a long while back The Shell Case looking at a truly gorgeous looking game called Thon. It briefly appeared on kickstarter but was cancelled due to some important changes in the game that meant it wouldn’t be ready for market. I must admit that I forgot all about this very special looking game so […]

Firestorm Armada 2nd Edition – A Review

Posted on October 1st, 2014 under , , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

First an apology for being so quiet for so long. I was on holiday for a week which should have warranted an explosion of writing on my part. But there was no wifi. Heck there was very little phone signal. And chasing a toddler around acres of woodland, it turns out, was rather knackering so even […]

10 Years of Dawn of War

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

I was surprised to learn today that it’s been 10 years since the release of the original Dawn of War game. This auspicious occasion couldn’t be marked without a few words about a game that I not only invested hours of my life in but helped redefine the RTS genre. When I first heard about […]

Grey Knights Codex – A Review

  One in a million. That’s how many recruits survive Grey Knight boot camp.  And if you consider that those recruits are the top percentage of those already chosen from their home worlds as being the top specimens on their respective planets, the numbers start to get a little crazy. The entire population of Earth […]

Ork Stormboyz – A Review

Posted on September 10th, 2014 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

It’s no secret that I’ve riding the green tide. It’s equally common knowledge that I’ve managed to cobble together 1,000 points already. None of it’s painted yet but that’s fine as the deal between myself, Mat & Lee is that we can’t progress past 1,000 points until it’s all painted. There’s an advantage to that […]
