A few days have passed since the tournament last Saturday and the time has come to recapitulate the games. Like I mentioned in the last post (check it out for all the lists), we are trying to get a tournament thing going. But one of the things I learned was that, well, our community ain’t […]Read more "Recap time!"
The rain battered down hard on the makeshift barracks in the mining district. In a corner laid the company Astropath beating his head against the floor. “Black Sun. Black Sun.” he kept repeating. He had done so for the last fourteen hours. His face was in a pulp, blood, gore and vomit covered his clothes. […]Read more "Battle Report: A fistful of Teeth"
I had a great game of 40k today and I wanted to share some thoughts. I forgot my phone so no photos from the game. We played 2000 points and I brought a Thousand Sons list with a detachment of Alpha Legion. Heresy, I know, but that’s pretty why we are here. Heresy. The Alpha […]Read more "A Thousand Sons, part 4"
I had the oldest two kids (11 and 7) throw down a game of Warhammer 40 000 last Sunday. We played a classic matched up – Marine vs Marine – at about 30PL/500 points. My new Thousand Sons faced my old Loyalist Marines in a fight over a single objective. Small 3*3 table and no […]Read more "The Destruction of Specimen X"
I had my first game of 8th edition the other day and I brought my brand new Thousand Sons army to the battle. I knew I was up against a Tzeentch heavy Daemon army. Not the best match up for Thousand Sons as daemons rely heavily on invulnerable saves and have a strong psychic phase. […]Read more "A Thousand Sons, part 2"
The game last Friday night was a blast. Sure we both made horrible mistakes and probably forgot tons of rules, for both better and worse. But that’s ok; we didn’t break the most important rule, you see. Now be warned – this was a game of fluffy list and unbroken combinations, the armies deployed mediocre […]Read more "Bring me the Heart of the Iron Oracle – battle report (comic book style)"
The holographic map of Moot Harkan shimmered with a bluish tint, casting a pale light on the two Heretic Astartes standing before it. The Shrine World was all but lost to the Tyranids. Elements from the Astra Militarum still held out close to the Citadel City but their number were dwindling. Chaos Lord Davos Vane, the […]Read more "Bring me the Heart of the Iron Oracle – background and list"
It was out there, somewhere. Hiding. Waiting. Lord-Commissar Argento was a hunted man. Prey. He knew it and could not rid himself from the seeds of despair it instilled in him. Yet, he would not fail the Emperor. The fate of the planet hung in the balance and so much relied on him. The conscripts from Hague […]Read more "War Zone Hague: Survival – Battle Report"
The Tau Breacher Teams ventured into the claustrophobic darkness of the space station. They had sent their Kroot allies in advance, they would scout and circle back to ambush the enemy. The Fire Warriors were calmed by the presence of the Ethereal, the buzzing sound of the surrounding Drone Net and the screaming retrothrusters of […]Read more "The Darkstar Gambit Battle Report"
Gul Valon, the Butcher of Kurigath, stood alone amidst the burning desolation of the battlefield. His arcane Terminator armour was covered in blood and gore. The howling blood rage of the bound Greater Daemon within his axe slowly calmed down. It had served him well this time too. Only death surrounded him. He started collecting […]Read more "The Scouring of Kurigath – The Battle Report"
