Thor’s Showcase: Maulerfiend & Forgefiend

Posted on July 25th, 2014 under , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Thor

I had completed the Maulerfiend a few months ago now but finally got around to getting the Forgefiend parts painted. Now that both versions are done (it’s magnetized), I figured I’d get some shots. You’ll have to pardon the flash. I c…

    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…

Battle Review: Chaos Space Marines vs Space Marines

Last night I played a 1,600 Warhammer 40K game against Ming’s Space Marines with my Disciples of Twilight, Chaos Space Marines. We played The Spoilers of War mission, Maelstrom of War mission with three cards, you cannot discard objective cards a…

Space Hulk: Genestealers

Posted on July 24th, 2014 under , , , . Posted by

As you may recall, I recently painted up some Blood Angel  Terminators, and to go along with them, I ‘m happy to present the Tyranid Genestealers. As far as inspiration goes, I wanted to get the same look and feel as the box art. Something […]

Rok Da Vote: Ork Codex for 7th (Closed)

Posted on July 23rd, 2014 under , , , , . Posted by

Thor

I figured the poll would get more votes than it did considering the Ork codex was a good six years in the making but there’s still a reasonable amount of votes. Speaking of, the results: I’ll run down from the most voted to least this time….

Battle Review: Chaos Space Marines vs Tyranids

Thor

This past Saturday was supposed to be a 1,600 Warhammer 40K tournament at my LGS but only three of us showed. Well, a fourth later showed but after someone already bailed so the tournament was scraped. However, since we were there I played against Andr…

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.   […]

40k Tournament of the Champions: An Imperial Knight Joust!

Posted on July 18th, 2014 under , , , , , . Posted by

Bill

So we had a big Imperial Knight Tournament, which was a custom 40k ruleset that created one of the most fun 40k Events I’ve ever been involved in.  The rules were fairly solid and I’m excited to do this again someday in the future.  I took as many pictures as I could, towards the end […]

Genestealer Cult – Magos Kurgan

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

Mr Saturday

The magos is finished, and just in time too. He takes to the table this weekend at BroCon, for a spot of Oldhammer shenanigans. He was a very satisfying miniature to rescue from the brink of destruction and return to the cabinet converted up and with a…

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 […]

Orks: Meh

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

Thor

I love Orks. The fluff is fun, unique and usually amusing. I like the Ork mentality of “might makes right” and the barbaric hierarchy they adhere to. I like the Ork aesthetic of cobbled together weaponry and vehicles that belch bullets and …

Played few games of new , 7th edition and I have to say that they finally managed to get my interest in the game back (that is if you ignore obvious money grabbing scheme such as “unbound” armies). Decided to … Continue reading

Battle Review: Orks vs Chaos

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

Thor

This is more of a battle review than report as the game proved very one-sided. I had my Orks for my second game with them under their new codex and played against Khorne Inquisitor and his Chaos Daemons with Chaos Space Marine allies. In my continuing …

Logan’s Run: Space Wolves vs Eldar in 7th Edition

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

Last weekend I played with J in my first 7th edition game of 40K.  We played 1500 points of his Wolves against my Eldar.  I think the game ended in Turn 4 with no more wolves standing on the board.  So this is less a battle report and more just…Re…

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…

Another hybrid finished. This time we’re going old school. This is one of my favourite models from the Rogue Trader era. I didn’t get this guy in a fortuitous ebay bid, no. He’s been in my possession since he was first released. He’s had to wait some d…

Right on the heels of the Ork codex release was the first supplement, Waaagh! Ghazghkull. I like to poll supplements separate from the parent codex so this is that poll. I’m also going to include the poll I put up yesterday for the Ork codex itse…

Thor

It’s that time to get feedback on the new Ork codex for Warhammer 40K 7th edition. It hasn’t been out long yet but hopefully long enough that the Ork players have managed a game or two, and people the chance to play against it. I like getti…
