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 […]

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 […]
