After about 2 months of messing around, my friend finally got his Tau got delivered from Total Wargamer, it’s a stupid site who can’t communicate with customers or deliver in a reasonable time. With his models finally here we had a 1000 point game of The Relic, with Hammer and Anvil deployment. Space wolves vs the New tau codex, let’s see what the new boys can do...

The escalation league kicked off and my first 15 point game was against a Cryx army, simple mission, just kill the warcaster. Now this isn’t a battle report, just what I came away from the game with. While I have never played a proper game of warmachine before I have read over the rule and I thought I knew what I was doing, I was wrong.

Finally i have finished the Wraithguard, and just before the new Eldar codex as it turn out. Took me long enough. So whats next on my painting desk? Not 100% sure yet, but probably the colossal squig, that really does need finishing. After that back to Eldar with some of the new kits.
Wish me luck
Across the years of doing this i have frequently requested community support from various people, many of who i didn't know in order to try and get my blog a little better know. Well its about time i helped other people out.
A friend of mine has started up a new blog so i am attempting to support him by telling all you wonderful people to please visit it. If your free of course.
Right now hes focusing on his Ork army hes attempting to get ready for throne of skulls in the future.
If any one else would like a little shout out drop me a comment and if i get enough people i might make it a regular thing.

Here come the Eldar, I’m not going to hide it, I only care about this months magazine for the simple fact it has the new Eldar codex featured in it. It’s got me exited and that’s a rare thing for a white dwarf magazine. So let’s hope it lives up to its reputation, here is this months review.

I have been keeping my eye on the rumours of the new Eldar release, I have quite an interest in the little blighters after all. So far I am quite surprised at the amount of new releases we have and the price tagged onto these. Before I go any further these are a few of the rumours I have found...
I have got both the rule book and the quick start guide from the 2 player starter set. I have read over both and i have to say compared to 40k (as its all i have to compare it to really) the warmachine rule book isn't set up in a very friendly way. The quick start guide is great, it explains everything i need to know to begin with, but is limited.

With my attention slightly turned away from my Eldar, it has let other things worm its way in. While I have been playing with my space wolves they apparently don’t hold my attention as well as the pointy eared ones. So it has come to pass that another game is about to be added to my repertoire, Warmachine.

I was going over my blogroll and some how missed this! HERO posted the new codex cover and wraithknight? Either way i had to re-post.
So this is the wraithknight? i can't help but feel its just the Riptide but with an eldar flavor Even the model stance is the same, same equipment, 1 big gun, support gun, shield. I Have to say i'm a little disappointed I know there isn't much you can do with a big wraithlord but come one, a little more uniqueness would have been nice. I'm still going to buy one though.
It's been a while since these guys last appeared but i am slowly painting them. It was a lot easier to paint the first 3, but i am determined to get them painted before the next codex. Knowing my luck they will be a terrible choice and i will never use them again... lets wait and see. Currently i would say they are 50% done, so not too long till i can be happy to field them.
And this little base is a hint at what i am painting up after the wraithguard. Any guesses? tomorrows post should explain more.

The first outing for my 3rd edition themed Space wolves, and it’s against Imperial guard in a 1500 point game of Big guns never tire with 5 objectives. The deployment was vanguard strike in a rather wooded table. So we have an interesting game to test the list out again, wish me luck.

With the decision to shelve the Eldar for the time being it has allowed me to use a different army for the next few games before the new codex is released. I have several armies, all in different states of repair and painting, but i decided that i would use the army i haven’t really used since 4th edition (bar a game vs thousand sons). The space wolves are here for the time being...

With the time of the 4th Edition Eldar codex coming to an end, as the 6th edition codex creeps closer, this will be the last time i play with this codex. So my last game is against Blood angels in a 1500 point game, the Scourging, with vanguard strike deployment. Can i keep up my winning streak or will my last game end in a loss.

White Dwarf May 2013 is out and so its time again to have a look over it and let you know what i think. The big release this month is the warhammer armies book: High Elves, while i’m not a massive fan of fantasy at the moment i’m still interested in having a look.

With the removal of Nafkas blog thanks to games workshop, not only have we lost a great rumour source, role model for blogging and generally hard working guy, the community has lost out even more.
Now that the blog is gone i have lost out on about 200 views, relying solely on people stumbling across my blog my accident of on a forum, he used to provide me with those views each friday. Not only that i don't have access the large amount of good blogs that he had on his blog roll. While i have followed a fair few of them, more and more keep appearing. Till now.
With the community losing this hub of activity there is a void, a hole for some one else to step up and take on the mantle. Now that is in no way me, but if any of you know of another blog that is attempting this i would like to support them how ever i can.
Do you guys know of any?
Another game down the club and i face off against Dark angels in a 1500 point game of Big guns never tire with dawn of war deployment. Playing on the city fight table, and it proves to be quite an interesting game as we have a lot of line of sight blocking terrain. Unfortunately it doesn't hamper him as much as it does me...
