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?)

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

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

Battle Report – Rampage (Does it 8th?)

After years of collecting the various supplements that Games Workshop has released for Warhammer 40,000, I was interested to know how compatible the missions would be in the latest edition. For my test mission, I decided on Rampage from the Dark Vengeance boxset. The reasons for choosing this mission were simple: It would be interesting … Continue reading Battle Report – Rampage (Does it 8th?)

Kill Team – Assemble

My local gaming club planned to hold a Kill Team one day tournament back at the beginning of March. I decided to make use of my Warhammer World purchases and put together a crack team of Ork Kommandos. Below you can see how I put them together. They are mostly standard Ork Boyz with the … Continue reading Kill Team – Assemble

Forever Delayed

The below post was written back in January (as all New Year's Plans should be made in that month). Life being what it is, this post has sat unfinished and unposted (until now!), so please, cast your mind back to the hazy days of two months ago... So the Grimdark of 2016 has been and … Continue reading Forever Delayed

The Doctor will see you now

It's great having a deadline for getting models finished by. That tends to be my biggest motivaton as I refuse to game with unpainted models. With the Octoberfest tournament looming, I needed to get my second Painboy model finished in order to use him. I'm glad I did as his feel no pain rolls were … Continue reading The Doctor will see you now

Kill Team

This Friday (tomorrow), I am taking part in my very first kill team game down at my local gaming club. This is a one off, multi player kill team which will involve teams made up of two players. I believe there are six teams. The game board is a home made Zone Mortalis board which … Continue reading Kill Team

It looks like there will be some kind of specialist games division that will be producing one off boxsets and they will also be revisiting some of the classic games that GW has released over the years. I'm hoping that this means the new¬† Specialist Design Studio will be producing … Continue reading Special Announcement

Building a game table

In order to save my friend constantly bringing over his three pieces of 3' x 4' wood to my house whenever we play a game, I decided to build my own gaming board. This can then be used to support a Relm of Battle board from Games Workshop or (as mostly is the case) my … Continue reading Building a game table
