Greetings, kids! This week on iToysoldiers there's been a couple of visible changes: 1. The player profile has a bit more stuff on it. Stats summary, recent achievements, that sort of thing. 2. The Calendar is now up - although I'm still working out how I want to handle permissions for that sort of thing. 3. Battles can now be tied to EVENTS! So for those who played a game at the Club day on Saturday you can tie it to the event. Why? 'cause when I get the event pages all pretty it'll show a break down of the event's battles and stuff. 4. Not so visible: I'm working up the code for a Ladder/...
Today I finally got around to a skirmish using the Tomorrow's war rule set by Ambush Alley games.I have played these once many months ago at a club game which was very enjoyable and led me to picking up a set of the rules. Numerous people on-line have already discussed the good and bad points about these rules or the presentation of these rules and I feel little will be added by me adding my two-pence so let me leave it as whilst I would agree these rules are perhaps not in the most reader friendly order once you read them a few times and get some games under your belt you will likely find...
Recently I was able to complete a few skirmish games of Song of Blades and Heroes with a like minded friend who came to visit for a weekend. Unfortunately we only managed to photograph the first four games of the weekend which I will now share with you here - what I will say is that we did lose most of Sunday to working out how to play the board game Horus Heresy which is good fun once you get to grips with all of the rules and how it works but it can take awhile that first time! (also if your not into your 40k as a setting you may just give up!)We also got some Firestorm Armada played which...
I've finally fixed on the name of my army, "Malleus Deus Sanguinem" or the Hammer of the Blood God. The concept for the army (and I plan on writing some real fluff for it) is that they are the remnants of the XIV company of the XII Legion Astartes, World Eaters - a company that Angron repurposed as a siege company. Their role within the Legion was to crack open fortifications and deal with enemy armor.This lets me "justify" the inclusion of a number of tanks (I love vehicles) and a squad of regular traitor marines with Meltas. I still give everything the Mark of Khorne and the bulk of the...
Under New Management Following widespread rumours of corruption and dishonesty, the Slag Valley Star has gone into liquidation. It was reputed to be blatantly pro House Van Saar to the detriment of all other Houses on Hive Primus. Thankfully following the outlawing of the infamous Psi Judges- a terrible band of reprobates who used the Slag Valley Star as a means of maintaining a façade of legality- their printing press and seditious rumor-mongering is no...
 Slag Valley Star #2 Psi Judges Guilty! In Late breaking news this week, it has been revealed that the investigation into the Psi Judges activities has been a phenomenal success. The evidence against the Judges was inally discovered at the end of a gruelling covert surveillance operarion. The Psi Judges, beleiving themselves to be unobserved, were filmed attacking a Gamma Corp fortified warehouse. the guards of the warehouse, a Goliath gang called...
 Slag Valley Star #1 Gang Warfare has hit the settlement of Fornication Gulch Reports are coming in of a large scale gang war between a Van Saar Gang called the Psi Judges and a group of Orlocks called The Bushwackers, which shows all the signs of escalating to cover this entire region of Hive Primus. There has been a long standing feud between these two local gangs which has reached a flashpoint with a shootout in the centre of town. Local...
Well this blog is all about the various goings on in Slag Valley, the area of Hive Primus that I play out in necromunda games. Many years ago my gaming group used to publish a newsletter detailing the various goings on around Slag Valley and Fornication Gulch. So this is the intro, next post will be the first Issues of the Slag Valley Star (it changed its name following a scandal involving corruption within the paper) and then the more impartial Slag Valley Bullett. At the end of some articles any subject in square brackets [like these] denote actual campaign events that ran until the next...
