Chapter Approved mission review – Recon

Posted on December 8th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

Greetings all, last night I got my first game in with the new missions from Chapter Approved, my opponent (Dave) and I played the recon maelstrom mission, so I thought I’d do a detailed review of the mission and my thoughts on how it changes things up, along with a brief section on what actually happened in the game.

Hobby update – Craftworld and Dusk Knight reinforcements.

Posted on December 4th, 2017 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

Hi all,
It’s Monday again so that must mean updates on my hobby progress! This week real life has intruded a little so I’ve not got quite as much done as I normally would, however I did get some time to myself on Saturday night and Sunday to crack on with assembling the reinforcements I’ve picked up from my birthday funds.

Hobby update – 27-11-17

Posted on November 27th, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

Greetings all,
It’s been a couple of weeks since I last did a hobby update, so I figured I’d let you know where I was with everything. First up though, it’s my birthday at some point in the next 7 days, so I’m hoping that next week I’ll have a nice hobby haul to show you all!

In the meantime, please take a hop on over to my sister blog, the Grim Dark Brotherhood, where I’m starting to add more regular content now in terms of a tale of 3 gamers that we’re embarking on. You’ll soon even be able to see me in video format on our youtube channel, but I’ll blow all the trumpets and ring the bells etc when that launches.

List review – Dusk Knights 2000pts

Posted on November 14th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

Hi guys,
I thought I’d stick up a post covering the list that I took to Never Mind the BlogWars last weekend. Overall I did ok, nothing spectacular, but as my last post on the subject showed, I was actually only outscored in terms of sheer amount killed by 2 of the top 4 players, and only the 3 of us managed that 86% kill ratio or higher (the top player actually managed 95.65%).

That being said, my performance on maelstrom objectives was poor (in part due to some shocking card draws) in two of my games and lower than I’ve come to expect from this list in the third. I decided therefore to do a review of my list in similar vein to those Mike at St Andrews Wargaming does when he attends a tournament.

Hobby update – 13/1/17 Fallout from Never Mind the Blogwars

Posted on November 13th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

Greetings all, today’s hobby update is going to be a bit of a different animal to normal, as most of my effort last week went into getting the final bits sorted for my attendance at Never Mind the Blog Wars on Saturday.

What follows therefore is a quick brief on the tournament, my results and the important bits from the weekend, plus a few thoughts on where I’ll be taking the Dusk Knights from here and what’s next on my plate.

Posted on November 9th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

Hi all, just a quick photo post today – this Saturday is ‘Never Mind the Blog Wars’, run by Alex at From the Fang. I’ve always enjoyed Alex’s take on running tournaments, so was really pleased when he decided to run an 8th edition singles event that I could make once more!

Hobby update and #dreadtober

Posted on October 31st, 2017 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

Hi all, just a very brief update today – I’ve been distracted by RL stuff I’m afraid. Still, I’ve had time to get work in on some new objective markers, my dreadnoughts for #dreadtober (which are now finished) and some commission stuff, though I’ve realised that without their mounts, the bloodbletters look like they’re dancing to Gangnam Style!

The Dark Imperium Premier League

Posted on October 18th, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

Greetings all! I thought that today I’d talk to you about something I’m running over at my club at the moment – the Dark Imperium Premier League. This is a league where club members could challenge other participants to a game and for those games to mean something rather more than just who got bragging rights for the next week.
