Approximate Reading Time: 7 minutesWell its nearly here! And I have managed to play my first 8th Edition Games. Three small (ish) games using the leaked rules and all the bits and pieces that Games Workshop has been feeding us over the last few months. So far I am impressed, but with some slight concerns. This article is about my experiences and what I took from these games – rather than a breakdown of how the new Guard works. There is a 99% chance I’ll say something here that is wrong. If I do, please let me know in the comments! Speed The speed […] The post...
Some More Progress! I'm back with some freshly painted models for viewing! Some have been lurking about from before this blogs inception (and even predate this millinium) and others are more recent additions to the Continental Drift Painting fold. As an experiment, I painted up my Necromunda bulkheads and placed a piece of lino to make the background a bit prettier, but you can be the judge of whether I managed to pull it off! Mutant Civil Rights Protestor As it is fitting with the UK general election going on at the moment I have luckily finished my mutant protester. A three eyed, semi...
I've always had this fear of change with my hobby. I been a Games Workshop hobbiest for about 25 years now and every time an edition ends and a new one begins I move away from gaming for awhile. I still build and paint but lose interest in the play part. I fall behind and become distant to friends I share the game with. NOT THIS YEAR, even with the change bigger then any other edition (minus perhaps Fantasy to Sigmar) I'll be active. Actually I have already started collecting my new army even before any list choices can be 100% hammered out. For Ultramar! Yep I am shevling the white Scars and...
Having made a bit of cash via PayPal I'm eager to piss it away, but reluctant to at the same time. My reluctance is mainly because of the disgustingly huge pile of lead/plastic that inhabits my loft. So I think I will put together a post made up of stuff I want to buy but I can only get them if I paint something up beforehand. First up is this little beauty from Reaper miniatures; Doctor Totenkrantz, and absolute babe of a model (if you're into rotten old half dead mutant naked guys). I see him as being a rather tasty bad guy for my Inquisimunda games...

The Problem with Rescue Missions Following on from my previous game against Pat and Vinny, I captured a member of The Greater Profit , now, in my experience rescue missions are seldom played, as the mission itself is quite unlike an average game, with all that skulking around and not shouting and firing off your weapons and that. Also I found a lot of the time it was far easier to pay the hey-I-just-found-your-ganger money, as a lot of leaders see tax free non deductible ransom as a...
Approximate Reading Time: 3 minutesWell I just got done watching the Warhammer TV Live Stream about 8th Edition and I have come out of the other side of it in one piece and really excited. It seems others were engaged too, at the time of writing the video has 51,000 views. This means two great things happened today; I gave blood for the 4th time 8th Edition has inspired and engaged me I am slightly frustrated that the Fall of Cadia rule book I have is now useless. As are all the codexes I own and Campaign books. This is annoying. But if the new […] The post...
