I finally picked this game up this year after being turned on to it at Templecon 2016 last year. For one piece board game miniatures the quality is pretty great and the monsters are very good. Looking forward to putting some paint on to those. In the meantime I did a speed paint job on my favorite of the four clans in the base game.
Wow, and just like that 5 months goes by without a single blog post! For shame!I certainly haven't been as busy as I have been at times with the hobby but my work hasn't come to a stand still just my blog posting.You should see a series of posts cropping up over the next couple weeks with what I've been up to over the last several months. In the mean time here's a few teaser shots. ...
Two Xenos Invasion in One Evening Greetings. As I so often do, a bandwagon rolled into town, and I leapt upon it. That bandwagon was the new 40K and as there are dozens (in not billions) of blog posts about the new game I will jump fairly quickly into the games and draw some conclusions afterwards. As the title suggests, we (myself, Aaron & Stuart) arranged to have a couple of games. As we'd all seen the leaked army lists forces were mustered and 3 1000 point armies assembled round Stuart's abode. Two armies were filthy xenos (Stuart's Tyranids and Aarons Tau) whilst the Imperium of man...
Approximate Reading Time: 4 minutesNow we have some Bullgryns Tactics for 8th edition lets look at magnetising Bullgryns to get the best out of your models! Magnetising Bullgryns & Ogryns – The Models I love these guys. Unsure why but it’s probably because their big, awesome and unlike anything else the Astra Militarum have access to. I magnetised by first Bullgryns some time ago now so they could take Brute shields and Power Mauls or Slabshields and Grenadier Gauntlets. I wanted the flexibility to take either configuration without needing to buy another three models – saved me £28 :-)...
New Camera, New Models Hello again. Just a quick update of some finished (and some 98% finished) models. The new 40K is high on my agenda but I've finished some Necromunda/Inquisimunda type models. I have recently purchased a new camera so my experimenting with them could lead to some varied results. On with the show. The Rusty Ork This an old space Ork Freebooter from the dawn of time. A Bad Mek or something like that. He was coming up to his 18th birthday on the painting table so I took pity on him and this is the result. I'm not ecstatic about his skin tone but as I'm not really a big Ork...
Approximate Reading Time: 12 minutesWelcome to my first 8th edition tactics article. My last article was a decent success I think when I wrote it three years ago on this very same topic. Time for an update. Today we will tackle the big boys of the Astra Militarum. Lets dive into some Bullgryn tactics! Bullgryn War Gear It seems there is a major change now in the way we can kit out our Bullgryns and therefore this affects our Bullgryn tactics. The Old War Gear In the past we had one load out or the other. These two load outs had two very specific […] The post...
Approximate Reading Time: 16 minutesWelcome to my fist 8th Edition Battle Report! It was 100 power level against Dark Angels. I wrote and published my 100 power level Astra Militarum list a few days ago. This might get fairly lengthy, so if you want to see how 8th works then keep going. 100 Power Level Dark Angels List for 8th Edition Battle Report Battle Forged +3CP, Battalion Detachment +3CP, all sharing the Adeptus Astartes keyword HQ Azrael (Warlord and +1CP) Chaplain with Crozius arcanum, Frag & Krak grenades and Plasma pistol Troops 3x Intercessor Squads Elites Deathwing Knights (in...
Approximate Reading Time: 2 minutesAnother book is ready for someone out there! I finished Eisenhorn Xenos around the new year and its taken me a while to place it on here. This is a great book and is well known and loved throughout the 40K community I am sure! I do not have the second one yet. I am still on Straken. Assignment of this (Eisenhorn Xenos) book will be to the first person who comments on this page saying they want the book. You must be in the UK and you only get one book from the Cadian Shock Library, ever. You should […] The post...
As I was looking online for a template to write down a list I stumbled upon this little gem. All factions are on it, customization options and detachments are there, and it is free. It can be a little wonky but it works. The site is: https://webapplications-webroster.rhcloud.com/rc/web/#!/rosterCreator Best way to keep the list is go to Print Preview and download the image.
