The FAQs and Errata for Games Workshop’s miniature games – mysteriously absent after the recent website overhaul – have returned, under Black Library Digital Editions. The are a bit hidden. You’ll have to go to the Black Library…

Salute in Review: So long and Thanks for All the Models…

Posted on April 17th, 2014 under , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Salute 2014, you are done! What a day! My head is still spinning slightly to be honest. This year Salute was everything I’d hoped for in some ways and something of a missed opportunity in others. Anyone who knows me in real life is well aware of my propensity for taking on way too much […]

Imperial Knight – A Review

Posted on April 17th, 2014 under , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

It’s been a little while since I’ve reviewed anything for the Grim Dark Future of the 41st Millennium so this article is a bit of a treat as I’m taking a look at the awe-inspiring Imperial Knight kit. I’ve always felt very fortunate to do what I do but some days I really have to […]

White Dwarf 193

Posted on April 16th, 2014 under , , , . Posted by

It has been far too long since I wrote one of these (actually it’s been even longer than that, given that I started this post and then abandoned it in order to start again). To be honest, the principle reason I have been avoiding them is that I have to…

To Fire the New Astra Militarum Wyvern… Overtly Tedious?

Posted on April 16th, 2014 under , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Alright. The new Imperial Guard Astra Militarum Codex is out in the wilds now. While I am not the greatest scholar of the Imperial Guard in 40K, I can’t help but feel that a lot of the rules feel .. um … tedious? Prone to unnecessary rolls …

Wood Elf Art Leaked

Posted on April 16th, 2014 under , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

It looks like all the naysayers and teeth gnahsers were dead wrong about the Wood Elves being amalgamated into the High Elves book. Indications the pointy eared tree hugging bastards are slated for a May release. Ian of The Chaps will be delighted.

Salute in Review: What Happened To All The Spending?

Posted on April 16th, 2014 under , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Must…buy…toys…must…buy…toys….  No it’s not Mat, but you’d be forgiven for thinking so. Instead it was me wandering around aimlessly trying to find shizzle to buy at the end of Salute on Saturday. I went in with a good idea of what I wanted but after picking up my hefty (and heavy) Forge World order, purchases were […]

An interesting spot from the guys of Wood Elves Warhammer on Facebook: This piece of artwork by The Art of Daarken, titled interestingly enough: Wood Elves – Wood Elves Army Book © Games Workshop. There is also a variant with slightly different…

Chaos Warshrine

Posted on April 15th, 2014 under , . Posted by

That was a really enjoyable piece to put together. The GW kits are really good for that kind of job, very easy to work with. I haven’t seen a lot of conversion with that lizard which is strange as it feels empty on its own. Anyway, not much to add he…

Warhammer World Photobomb pt2.

Posted on April 14th, 2014 under , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

I do get a bit ‘snap-happy’ at these gigs but there’s a lot to see and I have to make sure I’m feeding your hobby addiction as well as my own. Firstly some Warhammer World Terrain pieces, I think these would have been better served on the actual tables…

FaQs are dead! Long live the FaQs!

Posted on April 14th, 2014 under , , , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

One of the immediate hot topics of conversation (OK hobby rage) after the launch of the new Games Workshop web site was the notable absence of the FaQs section. Any attempt to access them via saved links was met with a pretty clear message: Well it would appear that all is not lost. People are reporting […]

I recently completed painting a Raven Guard Space Marines force. I painted the Camo-Cloaks of the scouts in an urban camouflage scheme that I present in this months painting tutorial. I think this camouflage scheme would also look great on other miniat…

In honour of today’s release of the Codex: Astra Militarum, formerly known as Codex: Imperial Guard (or CAMfkasCIG), I dipped back into the Golden Demon collection for some inspirational highlights on what the world’s best miniature painter…

Calas Typhon Unboxing

Posted on April 12th, 2014 under , , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

I’m back from my adventure to Adepticon, and I brought home lots of goodies! One of my favorite pieces came from Forge World, the fearsome Calas Typhon [So much want - Ed]. I’ve unboxed him so you can get a decent look at him. I haven’t been too keen on a few of the Horus Heresy […]

Salute 2014

Posted on April 11th, 2014 under , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

So tomorrow the big day will have finally arrived. And it cannot have come soon enough. These last few years I’ve pre-ordered my ticket as soon as possible. Not because I’m worried about missing out but because when I wake up the day after Salute I’m already looking forward to the next one. For me Salute […]

I’m going to vent a bit here. The new Games Workshop site is up. Yesterday I said I was excited to see what they were doing as I had hopes that they would learn from their mistakes. I was wrong. The new site is a huge damn shopping cart. I…Read…

New Games Workshop Website Live!

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

After the mysterious activities on the Games Workshop website yesterday, presumably just to build tension (given that these days there is no technical reason to take a site offline for a whole day to launch a web site!) it’s back, it’s new and, er, well is same but different. It’s still just Games Workshop No […]

New Games Workshop Website Incoming!

So, not long after the launch of the new Warhammer World website, the main GW site is currently down for maintenance as the covers are being removed on the brand new site! See that bit on the right? That’s a sprue, which seems to be an awesome looking model available to anyone ordering over a […]
