Reports of my death have only been slightly exaggerated...The last year was very difficult in terms of school life, and if anyone is a teacher you'll probably know why. The Teacher's Pension Scheme issues, schools in the UK dropping off the registered charity status and such had people scrabbling around trying to keep heir jobs... yeah, it wasn't fun.Not that it affected my job security, being a Housemaster, Physics teacher, Duke of Edinburgh Coordinator, Warhammer coach, and general nerd teacher. In fact, I got promoted! But still, it was very busy.Abyway, I'm looking to get back into blogging, and so I'm starting off with a mild ramble about Space Wolves and Aggressors. Enjoy!Thanks for reading.If you liked what you saw, and you want to help out, please leave a comment.

On Thursday afternoon I had another game of Warhammer 40,000: Apocalypse - this time with Orion and his Space Wolves.A Warhost of the Biel-Tim Fleet, having successfully executed a mission against the Mon-Keigh, regrouped at the rally point and prepared for extraction through the webway...Just as they were making their final preparations for extraction, the wolf-lords of Fenris struck! They were wild creatures, more animal-like than even the basest of the Mon-Keigh...FORCESAeldari Forces of the Biel-Tim FleetAsuryani Battalion Detachment - Beil-Tim Fleet (as Biel-Tan) HQ Farseer - 4 PL - War MasterWarlock - 3 PLTroopsDire Avengers (5) - 4 PLDire Avengers (5) - 4 PLDire Avengers (5) - 4 PLElitesHowling Banshees (5) - 5 PLAsuryani Battalion Detachment - Beil-Tim Fleet (as Biel-Tan) HQ Autarch (+ Warp Jump Generator) - 6PL - WarlordTroopsRangers (5) - 5 PLRangers (5) - 5 PLRangers (5) - 5 PLFast AttackWarp Spiders (10) - 12 PLAsuryani Spearhead Detachment - Beil-Tim Fleet (as Biel-Tan)&
Can you play Apocalypse at a 100 Power level using ROUGHLY 40k sized armies? Owen and I give it a go as my Space Wolves take on his Tyranids in our next Apocalypse game!
Today I present you my take on painting the iconic blue-grey armour of the Vika Fenryka, the Space Wolves, in an easy to follow step-by-step tutorial, painted with the budget-friendly Warpaints range from The Army Painter we reviewed recently. Check out the detailed instructions after the jump.More after the jump
Here he is, another model from the Space Marine Heroes range finished, Brother Aethor. Or Brother Frostclaw, as he is called in the Space Marine Adventures boxed game for which I painted this model. More pictures after the jump.More after the jump
I enjoyed working on the Salamander Space Marine so much that I decided to paint another model from the Space Marine Heroes series: Brother Aethor. He'll become a Space Wolf, as I'm painting them for Space Marine Adventures, where every Marine hails from a different chapter. I wonder why they chose Aethor to be a Space Wolf and not a say White Scar, as Aethor is a pretty vanilla model with plain Mk7 armour, and none of the details of the Space Wolves range... still, coming up with my take on the classic Space Wolves paint scheme was a lot of fun and who knows, maybe there'll be a tutorial...
Ciaran is in with his Adeptus Mechanicus to face my Space Wolves in a 2000pt Matched Play game!
Kevin and his Wolves of Fenris face down the Questoris Imperialis in this CA:2017 game of ‘Roving Patrol’!
Once again, Games Workshop has me in its greedy clutches. I saw this coming when they announced the "relaunch" of the Lord of the Rings SBG but to my surprise I got hooked on the new edition of Kill Team... So here we are... After resisting the call of the 40k verse since its 2nd edition, I finally surrendered. I got my brushes out again last weekend and painted my first Kill Team: Glorious Space Wolves in Mark III armor. These guys have been trapped in the Warp since the Burning of Prospero and have just been spit out now with the coming of the Great Rift.You all know this feeling, right? You're happily butchering your way through some heretic sorcerers and suddenly there's a bright blue light. Before you know it, you're somewhere completely different, your company is nowhere to be found, your Primarch is MIA, your phone is dead and the Emperor looks changed too... This is what happened to these guys and this is why they look so angry.This Kill Team is at 98 points now. I had a first game with them and
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.

Jason is back for another game in our Campaign, this time pitting the Space Wolves against the Adeptus Mechanicus in ‘Death in the Dark’ from the Astartes Kill Team expansion.
This is half a thought I had about Magnus the Red being more of a Viking Primarch than Leman Russ. I never quite had time to research the idea, but I thought I'd share the half-finished idea with you all now for discussion. Why? Because it's blog post day, I still have 5 hours of school work to do and it's already 9pm.Enjoy the idea, and see if you can flesh it out a bit more than I have!Whilst everyone considers Leman Russ to be the quintessential Viking primarch due to his reputation fo heavy drinking and general combat demeanour (a fancy way of saying he likes to hit stuff with a sword), Magnus is actually a much better candidate to represent the Norse in 40K.You might be thinking that he much more clearly represents the Egyptians. Well, there's a difference between visual aesthetic and plot themes. Everything about Magnus hints at a far more Northerly inspiration than Ra or others in the Egyptian pantheon.In fact... he's Odin.Let's start with some gentle, visual similarities.Odin is a one eyed man, u
The Space Wolves enter the fray! For unknown reasons the Wolves of Fenris have arrived on Fortis Binary and are hunting the Adeptus Mechanicus through the ruins!
NOVA was this last weekend and man was it a BLAST. It is definitely a smooth run operation and I plan on going back again for a third time next year. Last year I took my all Death Rider Army to the NOVA GT and Trios. This year I intended to do the Trios again, but due to team mate issues, I instead went to DC and did the tourist thing on the day of the trios. This is one of the untold bonuses of NOVA, you are practically in Washington, and taking an uber or the Metro to the museums/monuments is easily done and worth it if you are not from the area. But after a day of site seeing I got to jump into the NOVA Narrative! Check out their mission pack here. Some really fun and cool missions you should try at home (especially Shuttle Crash and Refinery IMO).My 2500 point army. All my armies would be made from this!I had started this article a few days ago, but now I feel I must temper my enthusiasm before I launch into the review.Edit: I leave the following 2 paragraphs for completions sake, but I wa
Primaris Marines do two things well; take a hit and be easy to collect. They might not be as flash as Tacticals or as unique as Scouts, but they'll be a strong anvil to throw at the enemy. And they do have their own tips and tricks too!In talking about the units in detail I run the risk of reproducing the Core manual, which then skirts dangerously close to copy write infringement. As such I will try to include as many details as needs to be clear, but if you want more you will need to buy the book. What will be included is:Name of the unitDifferent models in that unit (maximum number in brackets)Wargear options (but keep in mind they can’t carry everything at once!)AbilitiesSpecialisationsAny other important pieces will be included in the analysis itself. Right, let’s get started.IntercessorModels: Intercessor, Intercessor Gunner (2), Intercessor Sergeant (1)Wargear: Bolt rifle, Bolt pistol, Frag and Krak grenades, auto-bolt rifle, Stalker bolt rifle, Auxiliary Grenade launcher (Gunner only), Chainsword
