What Went Wrong in Warhammer 40k 7th Edition?

What Went Wrong in Warhammer 40k 7th Edition?

I had originally made some drafts for posts about why Traitor’s Hate didn’t fix Chaos, how Wrath of Magnus wouldn’t fix Thousand Sons, and how Legions wouldn’t fix us spikey boys. In short, it boiled down to these being supplements, our codex being terribad,  and GW’s policy is that codices are the go-to for points and statlines. Within that framework, and based on previous supplements measured against the Emperor’s lapdogs’ formations, I made a list of demands required to make us playable, much like a demented hostage-taker with no hostage.

A Pilgrimage to Warhammer World

Posted on December 5th, 2016 under , , , , . Posted by

Hey all, Alpharion here once again. I know it has been a little bit since I have written anything, but life got a little crazy. Between helping organize a local GT and getting married, I had almost zero personal time for anything related to wargaming.  I was recently lucky enough to take a trip across the pond and had a chance to swing by Warhammer World. First off, I just want to say that I am super jealous of anyone who gets to go there regularly. The gaming tables are fantastic, the staff is super helpful and friendly, and there is a bar! What more does a serious gamer need? I was certainly in nerdvana while I was there. I arrived mid-morning

The post A Pilgrimage to Warhammer World appeared first on Midwest Wargaming.

Sunday Colour: True Scale Marine pt 2

Hi all, last week I shared my method for making the torso’s and legs for Art-Scale Marines.  In case you missed it you should certainly check it out here.  Once you’ve finished with that come back here and learn how I do arms and see the almost finished Marines in the flesh. OK so you’ve … Continue reading Sunday Colour: True Scale Marine pt 2

Sorry that I’ve been absent for a few weeks.  Real life has been absurdly busy and that’s left little time for projects unfortunately and even less to type about it!  So what was going to be a short but challenging project to build some art-scale Grey Hunters has been dragged out for quite some time … Continue reading Sunday Colour: True-Scale Space Wolves

Maelstrom of War? We’ve Got Maelstrom of War Custom Missions

For almost as long as this blog has been around there’s been a page for custom 40K missions that I’ve written. It faded away when 7th hit, and the new Maelstrom of War mission format, but it’s slowly being resurrected. So, I figured it was time to bring it to light for those who haven’t seen it yet.

Maelstrom Missions

In the menu, under Gaming, you’ll see Missions. That page is where the missions I create get placed.

Godbreak 84th: Tactical Squad Howard

Posted on November 23rd, 2016 under , , , , , . Posted by

I’ve been building up a collection of vintage Imperial Army.  As a kid I wanted a large Imperial Guard army, but there being very few plastics (only the ginormo-head RTB07 and monopose 2E Stormtrooper with lasgun) meant they’d be mainly metal.  This combined with the low points cost meant a playable army would be very […]

Thoughts, Musings, and Ramblings of Thor

With the big annual 40K tournament now behind me, I feel like it’s time to change gears a bit.

Leading up to the tournament proved to be fun and aggravating. It’s always fun to play in a big event like this. I get to see people I typically only see for this event, and the gears churn to create an effective list.  I put more planning into this one day than I do all the normal monthly tournaments combined.

Tournament Recap for the Standish Standoff 2017

Tournament Recap for the Standish Standoff 2017

Saturday was the 6th Standish Standoff 40K tournament at my FLGS. It was something we (the community) created so that we had a more hobby oriented event. At the time, ‘ard Boyz was around and we all weren’t fans of the Games Workshop sanctioned event because, to put it bluntly, it was a dick-waving festival. The entire objective was to crush your opponents; nothing more, nothing less. So, we created the Standish Standoff (SS) to counter that, and to score things like painting and sportsmanship.

I guess this had to my first 40k Space Wolves project. Completed this Space Wolves Dreadnought Bjorn The Fell-Handed a while back. The colours were standard Space Wolves design which was nothing to shout about. I added battle damages and paint chipped on random areas of the dreadnought. The back of the dreadnought had be […]

The Birth of Ironfate – Chaos Knight Titan Showcase

Posted on November 13th, 2016 under , , , , , . Posted by

The Birth of Ironfate – Chaos Knight Titan Showcase

Deathcry and Hellscream, Grimtech’s Helbrutes, dragged the damaged Imperial Knight from the battlefield. It’s back scrapped against the cold hard ground as each Helbrute towed the Knight behind them by its feet. The head was blown apart during the battle, killing the pilot. The condition otherwise was impeccable.

“What do we have here my friend?” asked Warforce as he strode over to Grimtech, the warband’s Warpsmith, who was monitoring the Helbrutes progress.

Comic Book Battle Report: Disciples of Twilight vs Necrons

Comic Book Battle Report: Disciples of Twilight vs Necrons

Yep, another comic book battle report! I’ve grown to really enjoy doing these because it suits my approach to battle reports: short, sweet, and to the point.

This week we have the Disciples of Twilight – playing as Khorne Daemonkin, against the Necrons. This is the same player, and Necron army, that I faced in the first comic book report I did. Kenny’s Necrons just look so cool when the filters are applied that I had to do another.

Chaos Lord on Steed of Slaanesh – WIP Update

Chaos Lord on Steed of Slaanesh – WIP Update

I had started this model over a year ago. Originally it was going to be in a list of mine for a local 40K tournament, but I changed my list last minute (as I always do!), and it’s since sat on a shelf staring at me. Since I have completed my Knight (pics once my backdrop arrives), I wanted to work on something small that I knew I could complete in a reasonable timeframe.

Here’s a shot of where I left off with the model 14 months ago.
