Crimson Slaughter Sorcerer Lord in Terminator Armour

It's been a little while since my last post but that doesn't mean I haven't been busy with hobby! I actually finished this model a while ago but I waited a bit before putting his transfer on, then I decided that I needed to make a couple of additions to him (such as the eye … Continue reading Crimson Slaughter Sorcerer Lord in Terminator Armour

Battle Report – The Long & Winding Road (Does it 8th?)

With the country in lockdown due to Covid-19, my regular (if you can call it that) wargaming has had to stop. What therefore is a Wargamer to do? The answer, is solo play. And what better mission for solo play than the second solo mission from Dark Vengeance? Once again this is a mission from … Continue reading Battle Report – The Long & Winding Road (Does it 8th?)

What’s on the Painting Table?

I've finally started putting some paint on the Dark Angels. The Tactical Squad are virtually done, I just need to base them. They are looking quite dark as I have only painted them in Caliban Green and then given them a wash of Nuln Oil. I'm not going to brighten them up by painting more … Continue reading What’s on the Painting Table?

Orks Tournament List

First Founding Gaming club's first Warhammer 40k tournament of the year is this Saturday (12th May). Regular readers of this blog should be aware that I am in the process of painting a table's worth of scenery for this tournament, as such there has been no time to prepare a new army or even new … Continue reading Orks Tournament List

Praetorian XXIV Imperial Guard

With the weather being awful recently, I have been unable to undercoat the last two scenery prices for my half year project and so I have taken the opportunity to keep my finger on the hobby pulse by building some Imperial Guard (Astra Militarum) models. I remember back in my youth when Games Workshop showed … Continue reading Praetorian XXIV Imperial Guard

Imperial Bastion The Imperial Bastion was lovingly donated by Kanan. I added the missing guns to it and then set about putting it in some new colours. Before Kanan is a Dark … Continue reading Project Update – Bastion and Vengeance Weapon Battery

Warhammer Conquest: The Magazine

So today I have subscribed to the new Warhammer Conquest magazine. The magazine is probably not aimed at people like me who have been in the hobby for years, but I'm interested to see what the magazine contains. After all, I'm a sucker for all things Games Workshop. So far there is only a glimpse … Continue reading Warhammer Conquest: The Magazine

Kill Team 2018

Games Workshop has just announced a new version of Warhammer 40,000 Kill Team. My initial reaction to this was my normal "Hell Yeah!", but on reflection, I'm a little less excited the more I think about it. While the idea of skirmish 40k is one I am all over (especially with a roleplaying element to … Continue reading Kill Team 2018

Half Year Project Update

With a lack of Mechanicus Standard Grey and a lack of effort to brave the outside and go and get some, this past weekend saw me putting together the remaining unbuilt terrain kits that I will be using as a gaming table for the upcoming Mayhem 40k tournament. As a recap, I have set myself … Continue reading Half Year Project Update

Scenery Showcase – Crashed Aquila Lander

Here are some pictures of my completed Crashed Aquila Lander from the Battle For Macragge 40k boxset. I really like this as a scenery kit, it doesn't give much line of sight blocking (which is very important in the latest edition) but it's a very thematic kit and great for telling a narrative. I chose … Continue reading Scenery Showcase – Crashed Aquila Lander
