Remembrance Day 2018

It's 11th of November, and the 100 year Anniversary of the end of Word War 1.The tradition here in the UK is to wear poppies and lay wreathes of the flower on various memorials dotted around the country, as a way of paying respects to soldiers who gave their lives during both World Wars in particular and and solider who has lost their life in service in general.It's a sombre cultural event, and is usually about the tragedy of war and the importance of keeping peace. Paper poppy sales go on to fund veteran charities and such. Last year I "converted" two Games Workshop Models, stripping them of weapons in place of being flower holders.To this day they stand in the front of my classroom, holding their poppies up. It's important for those of us who push around plastic soldiers and entertain ourselves with stories of war and combat to remember that our table top fantasy is built on a foundation of utter catastrophe.These models are a reminder that the opportunity for us to engage in make-believe combat is bought a

Review: Space Marine Heroes Series 1 (Japanese Edition)

In September 2017, Games Workshop released a series of 12 + 1 Space Marine Heroes, randomly packaged in sealed blind boxes, exclusive to the Japanese hobby market. All models feature unique dynamic poses, sculpted bases, and a bare-headed and helmeted head option. The series is already sold out in Japanese online stores, however, in November 2018, Games Workshop released Series 1 in the rest of the world - with a few revisions. Check out if the models are worth the hassle.More after the jump

Space Hulk: Exterminate

On Sunday, Finnegan set up a game of Space Hulk for us to play while Amanda and The Girl were out. We had another go at Scenario #3: Exterminate. We played this back in August with me playing the Blood Angels Terminators and Finnegan playing the Genestealers. This time we switched things up and I played the Genestealers and he played the Terminators.SCENARIOThis scenario is played in up to fifteen rounds. To win the Genestealers have to kill all the Marines before the end of round fifteen. For the Marines to win, they have to either kill all Genestealers by the end of round fifteen or clear the board and be in position to block genestealers from coming onto the board (if a marine is positioned within 6 spaces of a Genestealer entry point, no Genestealers may be brought on at that point.FORCESThe Genestealers started with two blips on the table and got two per turn until they run out (10 turns - as there are 22 blip tokens).The Marines get one squad of five terminators includingSergeant Gideon (Thunder Ha

2000pts battle report - Imperial Knights & Dark Angels v ORKTOBER!

Ben has been busy home renovating recently so it's been a challenge to arrange a gaming but as we've all signed up for the Last Chance Open we thought we'd better learn how to play 40k again 😃 We rolled Front Line Assault deployment map - long-ways arrow. We were trying to understand the ITC rules but I think we gave up in the end - bodes well for January!Ben has just 2,000pts of Orks so his army had no options or opportunity to fine-tune. Lots of Boyz, Nobz, Bikerz and Tankbusters in Trukks. There was also Snikkrot and his Kommandos.I took my Cerastus, 2 Warglaives, My Knight Errant [as a Freeblade], 2 min Dark Angel Tactical Squads [one with Plasma cannon], Scout Snipers, Techmarine, Chaplain, 2 Ravenwing bike squads with Plasma Guns and my Old Skool Predator - in use for the first time ever.Ben won first turn and I failed to steal. As you can see everything got up in my face pretty quick.Snikrott's Komandos appeared on my flank, although he turned up in the middle of the board.There was a lot of greenskin

Dark Angels - Ravenwing Dark Shroud part 4

This is pathetic really. I don't know what it is about the Dark Shroud that doesn't inspire me, but I put some wash on the Bone and Angels then highlighted the bone, then I moved back onto the Shadespire models 🤣Such a window of opportunity now shut as the Knights take centre-stage. Frustratingly I kind of need this painted too as if I can't complete both Knights I'l rely more on my Dark Angels to fill out my army and specifically the Ravenwing which this will help with. However, it's far more progressed than wither of the Knights so there is chance it could be brought back online and completed if the need and, more importantly, the will was there.Anyway, short and sweet, Knights are up next.

Sneak peak: How to paint "Space" Wolves

About a subtle as a brick to the face that title.It's been a mad week, with Duke of Edinburgh expeditions, new reporting systems and other events kicking off, hence the total lack of posts. I have been saving this for a while, at least until the Genestealer Cults investigation is complete. I'm unlikely to finish until next week though, so enjoy this small preview of my new "Space Wolf" Great Company colour scheme.Yes, this post and the piece I did on Magnus are two of the forms of suicide on Fenris.I do like how the base green came out, and unlike many similar guides didn't need anything apart from standard Citadel paints. A proper guide is incoming!Until next time! Hopefully! If I can avoid the Sons of Russ a few days longer...Thanks for reading.If you liked what you saw, and you want to help out, please leave a comment.

Showcase: Guardian of the Covenant Primaris Intercessor by FruitBear

Hi everyone, it's been a while since my last post. Times have been very busy and hectic but luckily I'm still able to get some hobby done. For a while, I've wanted to look for an easy Space Marine scheme that isn't time-consuming. I really love Paul Norton's Iron Ravens and how he has painted the silver metallics so I wanted to give it a shot thus I chose the Dark Angels successor chapter the Guardians of the Covenant to try it on.More after the jump

1750pts battle report - Imperial Knights & Astra Militarum v Astra Militarum & Khorne Daemonkin - game 1

Double Trouble 4 and Alex From the Fang's doubles tournament replacing Blog Wars. 875pts with random pairings but all match-ups are Battle Brothers. Once again my recollection is pretty hazy so for the most part enjoy the pictures, the commentary will be secondary ;)  Here we go with the last Double Trouble ever. I'll cover my feelings in the wrap up but suffice to say the event was it's usual fun, tinged with a hint of sadness as it has come to a fitting end. First game and I'm partnered with Matt Greenwood [Alex's regular opponent] and his Astra Militarum [3 Leman Russ with Pask, a Psyker, some Ratling Snipers and Vets but with no Command Point farm!].Facing us was Greg Barber, again with Astra Militarum [Baneblade, Command Point Farm, Psykers and a Bullgryn squad]. He was partnered with Duncan Gray and Khorne Daemonkin [Soul Grinder, Blood Letters, Flesh Hounds, Skull Cannon and some Forgeworld Greater Daemon].Setup was table ends but with the pointed ends 18" apart. That would hav
