RSM and Sandy the dog

RSM and Sandy the dog

Things are really heating up on the hobby front although I hit a stumbling block once I completed my second hydra. The thing is, all of my next guard projects are all quite involved and with me only recently getting my 40k mojo back, they’re all a bit overwhelming to be honest. After a little thinking, I realised that the Corbanian 1st doesn't have a regimental

My state of 40k

My state of 40k

So yeah, I’ve gone back to that state of 40k which I had just before 6th ed come out; stale and boredness. Don’t get me wrong I love 40k, but I have been playing it for 5 and a half years none stop probably averaging about 2 games a week – that’s a lot of dice rolling! 6th did bring some nice changes i.e flyers, general rule changes and new missions, but I feel some of those are only minor changes/additions and only given 40k temporary extended life for me. I have been going to a new club lately, which has given me new people to play against. It’s nice playing against new people, however armies seem to end up been the same or not far off others I have played before. This isn’t the players fault, this is the state of the 40k codexes, as you can only make so many builds from each codex which actuall work well. Another issue for me is the price of 40k. Before it has never really bothered me too much (though I have had a grumble when prices increase), but lately things seem to be expensive. Ok I’ve got a wedding coming up in September this year and penny pinching is high, but some of the 40k stuff seems really expensive i.e £45 for Heldrake and new D.A flyers, yet none of those are a patch on the Vendetta for model size. If price increases the only way I can buy new 40k is second hand. Luckily I’ve pretty much done all 40k stuff anyway; I just need another Heldrake for my CSM army, 10 Cultists and some Sorcerers

Discussion: my evolving armies

Discussion: my evolving armies

When I started 40k my lists were like any other newbies; a list screwed together with stuff I owned. My lists wasn’t very good and had no form of synergy, target saturation or redundancy. Over the years those lists got sorted and become typical mech lists, nothing fancy really. Then last year when I started Dark Eldar and something changed…. Dark Eldar helped me learn a lot about 40k. In fact it was them which increased my playing skill. When using D.E you have to use a lot of skill to make sure you can survive, things from like thinking ahead like cover for example and positioning of units to take advantage of situations etc. What D.E really did for me is set the bar on my army lists and help me realise the play style I like. I couldn’t deal with slow moving Imperial armies like Imperial Guard

The Praetorian Project – Leviathan Mk. II production commences!

The Praetorian Project – Leviathan Mk. II production commences!

Every so often I get a wild idea to make something ridiculous, and the curse has befallen me again! I’ve been really enjoying working on my Guard recently which naturally brings me around to revisiting an old project – the Leviathan Command Vehicle. I’d built one years ago ( before I had the blog ), and the Mk. II version of the project has been lurking in the back of the Closet of Doom for years. It’s high time it got a little forward motion! I started by dragging out the old sketches and browsing through the dozens of reference images I’ve collected over the years.

And the winner is…

And the winner is…

Just got back from a nice getaway weekend, and I was floored by all the kind words upon my return – I really appreciate it, everyone! It’s humbling (and a little scary) to know that all of you are out there enjoying the decent into madness that is my hobby! Thank you all once again for all the support and feedback you’ve given over the years! That said, before I call it a night I broke out a set of polyhedral random number generators, consulted the Emperor’s Tarot and the Storm Raven goes to… Tristan M!

Our Community: The BlogDex

Our Community: The BlogDex

Learning how to collect, model, paint and play with miniatures is a pretty decent skill set to acquire. So when you decide to go that little bit further and blog about what you’re upto you deserve all of the support you can get. To this end a number of sites have established blogger groups. Some are well known, others less so. Perhaps the most popular example is FromTheWarp , run by Ron. Over the years Ron has developed something of a hub for miniature wargamers and his Blogrolls feature some of the best and brightest blogs in the land. It’s all about blogrolls. If you’re member of one of the blogging groups then every time you post some new content a small excerpt from your post appears on the main site and people visiting the site to find new blogs might see it and start reading your blog. It’s a great tool for people who enjoy reading about what other people are doing with their hobby time.
