This is my first game using the Forgeworld Renegades and Heretics list and its against another forgeworld list, this one from the relatively recent release Imperial armour 4, second edition, the Elysian D-99 Veterans list. This game represents the Imperium trying to get a foot hold on the chaos held world in our campaign. Its a 1000 point game of Purge the Alien.

This is my second game vs the mechanicum in our escalating series of games, unfortunatly we haven't been able to keep up with the paining. This game represents the mechanicum striking out against the chaos forces on the planet, after suffering losses after their first conflict. Its a 1000 point game of the relic, mechanicum (inquisition and knights) vs the renegades (imperial guard).

Over the last few years I have been trying to post as regularly as possible, generally this has been twice a week, every tuesday and friday morning. Sometimes if I have a review or an question I will go out of my way to make sure I get it out asap generally coming out on a saturday. However due to recent events I have lass time on my hands to do such things. As much as it pains me I will be reducing my posting to once a week.

With the release of the Dark eldar codex I decide to dig out some of my old models and give them a go. In the ruins of Velak the dark eldar attempt to steal away Tau slaves but they put up a heavy resistance. The game is a 1500 point Big guns never tire game of Dark Eldar vs Tau. Let the slave raid begin!
Tuesday, 7 October 2014
Now that the codex has been out a few days I have had a few ideas about different dark eldar army lists. Not all of them are good, but a lot of possibilities are in the codex, and while I have seen a few people have similar ideas, I generally work around 1500 points so these are a little more restricted than 1850 or 2k.
Saturday, 4 October 2014
A lot of information I read before the codex came out suggested that the Dark Eldar codex was going to be a disappointment, I am currently writing this into without reading the codex, but I hope that I can find something to argue against this idea. So I’m going to have a quick read and give my review of the codex and hopefully give you all a ray of sunshine out of all of this gloomy expectation.

Back to the Battle Reports and this time I have a 2000 point game with my Eldar versus as combined Chaos force of Chaos space marines, Daemons and a formation. In this game we play purge the alien with hammer of wrath deployment. I take a rather different list, based around making the enemy fail moral, which I wrote before knowing I was playing Chaos, as most of his units ignore that nonesence.

The last 2 weeks have gone post free and I apologise for that, but a few things have come up that prevented me from putting the work in needed to have a half decent post. So instead of having a half baked post I decided to just work on an old battle report in the few spare minuets I could get. That will be posted Friday.

Game two of the 600 point escalation and after the fall of the Imperial Knight the Blood angels are sent in to reclaim what they can of the knight. The game is Emperors will, Imperial Guard vs Blood angels 600 points.
Tuesday, 9 September 2014
Once again I have been distracted by another game, this time it’s Malifaux, a skirmish game where most of the characters have a fair amount of character. This is very different from what i normally go for, as i like to invent my own characters and this one has them all premade for you. I had been told it is similar to Warmachine which i tried to play a while ago, and it didn’t really catch on with me. This one though, hopefully will.
Friday, 5 September 2014
With my Dark eldar force swelling with recent reinforcements I decided to use them in a larger game 2500 points to be exact, vs the Imperium of Man. As a change we use the maelstrom of war missions, and play Deadlock with vanguard strike deployment.
Tuesday, 2 September 2014
While having a weekend away in London myself and my girlfriend visited the Making of Harry potter. IT was an enjoyable few hours but something rather unexpected happened while I was there, I got inspiration to play Mordheim again, but with a different setting in mind. While Mordheim is set in the city of the damned, it has had several different settings, and I would love to try and have a game or two set in the ruins of a giant castle. You will see why later.
Friday, 29 August 2014
My first game in the escalation campaign and its against the combined forces of the Mechanicum (using an alliance of inquisition and knights to proxy it). As the game is only 600 points, we use a 4x4 city fight table, with purge the alien mission. Wish me luck.
Tuesday, 26 August 2014
Surprisingly a friend of mine has decided to get rid of his old dark eldar force in order to make some room for different models (probably imperial guard and his million fliers) and just gave me his models. Knowing I have an old 3rd edition dark eldar force he knew I would happily accept as his models are all old school as well. So I thought I would show off the state of my dark eldar force as it is right now.

With the new release of codex space wolves, i had to give them a spin and the grey knights ended up being my opponent. Obviously my wolf lord has come under the eye of an inquisitor who isn’t too happy with his conduct and has sent in the big boys to deal with him. The game is a 1500 point game of crusade, with hammer and anvil deployment.
Tuesday, 12 August 2014
For my imperial guard force I am contemplating which of the advisors I should add in to help my infantry out. The obvious choices are adding in either a few Commissars OR Ministorum priest but I don’t have the points to add in both. So the question is, which advisor do I go for?
Saturday, 9 August 2014
Once again a new codex has come out and it’s time for my little review of it. While I do have a space wolf army it has been a long time since it has seen the light of day, so I am hoping the new dex can stir something inside me to crack it out again. We have already seen the new dreads and fliers, but let us hope there is something else to this release.
Friday, 8 August 2014
Once again the Necrons threaten the existence of the Eldar, and in this battle both the Dark eldar and eldar join forces to eliminate this most ancient of foes. The is a 1750 point game of purge the alien of necrons vs dark eldar allied with eldar.
Tuesday, 5 August 2014
At the gaming club we are starting a slow escalation campaign between 4 of us, in order for all of the participants to gradually paint and build up a new force. For this I will be using my Imperial guard, as I have been meaning to get them sorted after over a year of a lot of bits just sitting in my house.
Friday, 1 August 2014
After the release of Codex: Orks it made me want to test it out, and a friend of mine has wanted to face orks with a mostly infantry imperial guard army for a while. So we now had an opportunity to play the sort of game he wanted. This is a 1500 point game of Orks vs. Astra militarum.
Thursday, 31 July 2014
Quite an important rule change that occurred during the transition between 6th and 7th was the massive change to jink. While it doesn’t appear to be a very important rule it can be used by such a large number of units (bikes, skimmers and fliers) and can be quite an important factor during the game.
Tuesday, 29 July 2014
It’s getting close to the end of the month so I thought I would show you all where about I am up to with the painting. My aims for this month was 10 vets, a chimera and start a heavy weapons team so click and I will show you how I have got on.
Friday, 25 July 2014
The Hordes of the Evil sunz need to be contained, and it’s down to the Warhost of spiritseer Antaris the warp forged to cull the beasts. This is a 1500 point game of the emperors will with vanguard strike deployment between Codex Orks (no supplement) and Codex Eldar (no supplement).
Friday, 18 July 2014
On the second day of the event only 1 game remained, the big team game. This was an 8k a side game which used a special force organisation chart which was basically 4 combined arms detachments. However you didn’t get any benefits from it and you could choose your force as an unbound list BUT you still had to conform to the chart. The only exception to this was you could add as many knights that you wanted as they hadn’t accounted for them after you had filled up your mandatory slots.

Here are a few pictures of the new realm of battle board that will be coming out soon. I'm sure you have probably seen them already but its always good to share them. I do think its a great product fro teh look of it, might even be tempted to get one myself for the right price.
|City fight tables never go down badly|
While the table is nice what does bother me is the number of aquilas all over the place, it looks a little impractical and cuts down where you can place your terrain. But it might just be a slight raise or just set in and not be a problem at all. We will have to wait and see.
Tuesday, 15 July 2014
During the council of war event we came across several rules issues with some of the newer rules and some that have changed or just gone since the last edition. Since reading over some of my battle reports from then event and checking the rules I think we may have made a few mistakes, they are probably stupid mistakes that you will all laugh at but I thought it would be worth going over them to get your input and maybe help someone out.

My love of games isn’t just restricted to 40k, I also enjoy computer games and board games, and I have to say a great board game I have played for a while is called Zombicide and currently the 3rd instalment of the game is on kickstarter and I urge you guys to have a look, as it’s a great zombie survival game.
Friday, 11 July 2014
The third game of Council of War and this one’s different to the first two, this is a doubles game. The army consists of 1500 points split however you want between the two players. It must have two armies included so you can’t just have a single force org and split the units, each player must have their own units. The game is Eldar and Iyanden vs Iyanden and blood angels, with Purge the alien mission.

Game 2 and my Eldar face a horde of Orks joined with an Orky lord of war which isn't a Stompa. The Eldar must face a Kill Bursta in a 1500 point game of Crusade (4 objectives) with hammer and anvil deployment. The ork force is beautifully converted, you gotta check it out.
Tuesday, 1 July 2014
The first codex of 7th edition has hit the shelves and its codex orks. It’s been 2 editions since the orks had a codex so I was expecting a major change for the boyz, but interestingly it wasn’t so much the rules that got changed but the who lay out of the codex. I will explain myself more after the jump.
Friday, 27 June 2014
My first game of the Event and my Eldar face off against Ultramarines in a game of Emperors will with dawn of war deployment. While his list doesn’t look too intimidating it does include 2 fliers which could be a massive problem for me.

With Council of War fast approaching I thought I would show you all what I have finally decided on taking. I followed the advice you all gave me for the 1500 point list and dropped the one I tested out for something a little more conventional. But council of war isn’t just a bunch of 1500 point games, oh no, read on to find out more.
Friday, 13 June 2014
In preparation for Council of War I test out one of my possible tournament lists vs the necrons of the Maynark dynasty (forgeworld rules) in a 1500 point game of purge the alien. Who will win this fight to the death? The Ancient mechanical Necrons or the Dying Eldar? Old foes battling once more.
Tuesday, 10 June 2014
With my first Tournament of 7th coming up soon I have come up with 2 lists, one of which I am more comfortable playing with, but I’m not 100% sure which to use. A stipulation of the tournament is that every model must be painted and must represent what it is, so no proxies (it is at warhammer world after all).
Friday, 6 June 2014
Out side an Imperial shrine the Eldar ambush the Space wolves in this 1500 point game of Emperors will with Vanguard strike deployment. Two legendary fighters grace the battle field, the Great wolf himself Logan Grimnar and Craftworld Dem-Kirath’s Avatar of Khaine! If those two combatants meant surely stories will be born of the outcome.
Friday, 30 May 2014
This is my first battle report for 7th edition and looking back we had a few slight rules mishaps, but nothing too major I don’t believe. Anyway the game was between my Eldar force and the Forces of the Imperium in a 1500 point game of Spoils of War.

On the planet Gorgoth, in the outskirts of the city Lanetcy the Imperial forces of the blood angels and imperial fists join forces to remove the xenos threat of the Eldar from the holy imperial world. This is a game of Cities of Death, 2500 points with the Domination scenario.
Friday, 16 May 2014
On the World of ker’vo the Tau expansion threatens an important planet to the Craft world Dem-Kirath. The Eldar must face the Tau in open warfare to preserve this world. This game is a 1500 point game of crusade (3 objectives) and vanguard strike deployment.
Tuesday, 13 May 2014
I spent Sunday painting and so far i have made a little dint into my challenge, and i am quite happy with the results so far. Hopefully i will get a bit more done soon and actually finish off this challenge before the month is done.
Tuesday, 6 May 2014
April wasn’t good, I stopped doing anything after I built the veterans and couldn’t get back into the guard. I feel a little brake from the guard is in order, especially as I have to paint my eldar force for the council of war in Nottingham, and as I’m not 100% sure what I will be taking yet that’s a lot of eldar to paint.
Friday, 2 May 2014
Once again the Eldar of craftworld Dem-Kirath are forced to defend themselves against the threat of the Necrons, this time on a forest world. The game is the relic with vanguard strike deployment. In this 1500 point game which force will emerge victories (and for once both armies are fully painted!!!).
Tuesday, 29 April 2014
It’s odd, normally I have something to share or say on a Tuesday but this week I'm drawing a blank, nothing stands out this week for me to share. I am falling behind on painting as work is taking up most of my time (that happens unfortunately) and I am in a bit of a limbo about what list to take for council of war until Warhammer World gets back to me.

It’s getting close to the end of April now so I thought I would share with all what I have got done so far. At the beginning of the month I set a very modest aim as I knew I would be busy this month, and I am very glad I did now. Thankfully I have painted what I wanted but the construction I wanted done is a little behind.
Saturday, 19 April 2014
In a rematch of last week’s massacre the Eldar come back for another go at the Ultramarines. The army lists are different this game and might be able to get a different results (I hope!). The game is Emperors will with dawn of war deployment in this 1850 points game.
Friday, 11 April 2014
I have managed to get my hands on a copy of the codex so though I would share my thoughts on the codex compared to the previous incarnation. But first I would like to say all though out the codex it calls the army the imperial guard, the two are interchangeable so at least we aren’t stuck calling the army by its stupid name and now have new players know what we are on about. Anyway onto the review.
Tuesday, 8 April 2014
At the start of the year I said that I wanted to attend more tournaments than last year and so far I haven’t been able to attend one, so I am attempting to attend one in May. Meaning that I have a fair amount of preparation before the tournament, list being the largest issue.
Friday, 4 April 2014
The ground trembles with the footsteps of a knight titan, aiding the forces of Ultramarines. This Battle report is between my Eldar and the Ultramarines air force aided by a knight. The game is 2000 points, with the Relic mission and Dawn of war deployment.
