    Hello folks!   Finally, we get to the last article in this series! I admit I am a little late, but that’s not without reason. My studies, mostly, demanded a great share of my time and I couldn’t leave this aside. When the texts a…

Warhammer 40k 7th Edition – A Review

Posted on July 21st, 2014 under , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

So 7th Edition has been unleashed upon the world. I’d like to say that I was eagerly anticipating its release but if I’m honest I felt fairly indifferent about the whole thing. Mainly because I do my best to avoid rumours and I really hate the way Games Workshop give people a week’s notice to find £50.   […]

Sanctus Reach: Stormclaw Video

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

Now I’m the first person to admit that I’m a little out of touch with the 7th edition release. One minute there was no new box set and a rulebook with Dark Angels on the sleeve and now a new boxset with Space Wolves and Orks, putting lie to the persistent rumour that the box […]

Given there are only two new pictures of the Devastator squad I thought I’d bundle in the Tactical squad too. Anway, greens gone on, black lined in places and Tin Bitz ready to do my bronze effects. All very slap dash at this stage, except around the b…

Warhammer 40k: Eternal Crusade Pre-Alpha Gameplay

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

Graphics aside, because it is pre-alpha, this so far looks like the Space Marine multiplayer. Which I personally thought sucked. One must assume there’s going to be some plot and many places to explore.
But right now here’s some poorly rend…
