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

Friday night was another chance for Adrian and I to ‘push some nice toys around’. Yep, another 4th Edition Warhammer 40K using the ‘toys’ we’ve both collected over the years. I took the Lost and the Damned again, and this time Adrian took his Tau (anot…

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 […]

My week has been very unproductive on the hobby front. I have managed to get some things fixed though for my Biker Chaos Lord, Soulgore. I did also manage to get his magnetized arms fully painted and sealed. They were being sealed when I took these sho…

100 man army – Age of Darkness

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

I’ve been quite heavily involved in the “pre-heresy” and “age of darkness” scene for many years now, particularly a time before Forge World took on the mantle. It’s a rich and inspiring era of the 40k universe, an age of greater heroes and arguably nob…

Scratchbuilt Half-Track Taurox Proxy

Hello all, The Astra Militarum codex added a new transport option, the chibi-tastic Taurox.  Both the model and the rules were received with mixed feeling from the online community, as I am sure most of you are aware.  It is not as survivable as the …

  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 […]

Recently I managed to finish up the first 3 bikes from the Dark Vengeance box that would make up a 1/3 of my future Khornate Red Corsair Bike Squad.  Essentially I used these 3 to form the special weapons section (2x meltas), champion, and icon be…

Last night I played a 1,650 40K game against Tyranids with my Disciples of Twilight, Chaos Space Marines. I decided to do something different and that’s run a very Nurgley list. I haven’t run a Nurgle heavy list in a very, very long time. H…

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 […]

After what seems like an eternity, I’ve finally gotten a model of the painting desk. This unfortunate fellow has been lounging about half finished for weeks. My stumbling block, apart from a general lack of painting mojo, was what kind of right arm to …

Painted up an Ork Biker to the Pro standard as a test piece for commission work, there’s a few more things I would have liked to add to him but ran out of time, the sort of things that’d I’d do on the army such as more distinct markin…

Now that my Berzerkers are being sealed, I’ve gone back to working on Soulgore (Chaos Lord), on a bike. I settled on what I wanted to do with his bike and you’ll see the bit on the back of the bite. I’ll likely call it good there sinc…

Time for another bash at our Warhammer 40K 4th edition revival (although I am feeling a little schizophrenic shifting between 6mm and 28m figures). Adrian and I got together for our second game (we decided we’d play a number of games in as close a succ…

  Guess who’s started a new army for 40k? It’s not my fault.  Honestly, blame Mat and Phil, they’re the ones who got me feeling all jealous and left out and stuff.  Once Phil followed Mat down the Xenos path it was only a matter of time before I caved and followed suit, which I […]

Ork Bommer – A Review

The Codex was largely responsible for me finally starting an Ork army but as I’ve always said time and again, you have to love the models you’re collecting or the project will simply never get finished. This is true or all armies in every game ever written. And it was true all those years ago […]

Space Marine Terminators

These have been a long time coming. I assembled them last year (or was that the year before?) and since then they’ve been sitting in a box, patiently biding their time. After Russ wiped the floor with me using his birthday Orks a couple of weeks back i…
