Approximate Reading Time: 2 minutesAnother book is ready for someone out there! I’ve finished Baneblade. This was a slow one. I started it in January. Slow reading skills and lack of time contributed to the length of time this book took. But it’s a great book! It paints the picture of a desert world wit’s extreme dust storms really well, offers some nice insights into Orks and the local Sandscum population. The fighting is infrequent it seemed which was fine by me as the story and the main protagonist were interesting enough to carry me through without the need to constantly be with the...
Inquisimunda : The Wrath Of Pat Following on from my last post; A Warlike Rogue's Big Weekend (Part I) here is the story of the game that followed. Barely had the post game sequence been completed, when I had to ready myself once more for war! Pat arrived from his abode with 3 large containers of terrain and we set up the very picturesque battlefield below to see who was top dog. The gang's involved were...
Vandals Expurged! By Aurelia Charga A group of anarchists, heretics or disgruntled imperial employees had to be restrained from vandalising 'The Emperor's Thumb', a semi popular object d'art situated by the civic centre in Fornication Gulch. Interrogator Jenna Pursuivant and members of Jenna's Jokers were at hand to stop the miscreants. Approximately 10 humans advanced towards the piece armed with guns and rudimentary defaecation devices. The Jokers, ever champions of the people engaged them using extreme prejudice. It is rumored that Spaz, a member of the Joker's died in the skirmish and...
Inquisimunda Tourism Greetings. Even though I made a mental promise not to write any more batreps until I have a lot more scenery done, here comes another batrep. In this instance, there are extenuating circumstances. Vinny, once a regular sparring partner in all things gamey moved down to Cork about a year ago effectively ceasing our rivalry. Then a few months back he mentioned coming back up to sunny Cavan for a weekend and then as is my normal modus operandi, forgot all about it. Two weeks ago I was reminded by Pat and some hasty garage tidying up was done. Vinny arrived and a couple of...
Approximate Reading Time: 7 minutesIn case you missed it I’ve managed to do a lot of airbrushing recently – I say recently, I mean over the last 6 months. Which is good for me! It’s been all camo stripes so far on a variety of vehicles; Taurox, Malcador, Leman Russ, Valkyrie, Vulture, etc. Time for something new; Airbrushing Cadian Shock Troops. But I’ve wanted to try and do more than just camo with it. It’s a bit of an unknown area for me though. I know you can do pre-shading, OLS and I am sure LOADS of other things too – but that’s still a bit of a […] The post...

Approximate Reading Time: 5 minutesThis is my biggest game ever! Its taken three years to get to this point, although of course a lot of stuff needs painting still but I am getting there! 3,000 points of Astra Militarum vs Dark Angels using The Emperor’s Will mission. But we will focus on a huge mistake on my part with the Emperor’s Wrath Artillery Company. I mainly wanted to write about this battle because I used the Emperor’s Wrath Artillery Company Formation and it failed me terribly. Or rather I failed it terribly. It was, in hind sight, a simple mistake that caused the formation […] The...
Approximate Reading Time: 5 minutesAs of today, exactly today, March 22nd 2017 – it has been three years since my first blog post on cadianshock.com – with three years of blogging under my belt its time to take a quick look at where the blog is at today and share some stats! Yay, numbers! Not much hobby I am afraid in this post. It was Cadia’s Creed Blog that first planted the seed in my head about starting my own blog. It was a strange world back then and it was a leap into the unknown. My grasp of 7th Edition was poor I am sure, my models were […] The post...
