Evolving list: Breeding a bigger beast

Its time again to have a look at my current list and see what i can do to it improve it once more. But a little different this time round as i have been asked a few times to play a larger game to which i have suggested we play 1500 instead. It would be good to have a set list for larger games instead of just cobbling 500 points onto an existing list. So click and see what i can come up with...

Encounter in the waste... Eldar vs Chaos space marines 1750

I was invited to play on a friends new table, and to christen it properly we would have a large game, 1750 points. The game type was Capture the Relic with dawn of war deployment on a stunningly beautiful waste land with a toxic river running though the centre. Click to read.

Re-rolls and Warlords

I was just reading over the Tau codex and was interested in the warlord traits available to them. Now this was very interesting as half of them have to be re-rolled under certain circumstances. I found this very interesting, and a rule sprung to mind. You Can't Re-Roll a Re-roll...

Chaos Renegades: Starting the Heresey

Finally the time has come, the dark gods have blessed me with time and here is the start of my chaos renegade force. It's not much yet, but its a start. First of all i'm going to just pain in small batches of models so i don't get fed up painting. These are my first 5 models.

40K at the Forge: Epilogue of a tournament

Orks vs Space marines
With my first tournament over with it’s time to look over what I have learnt and what I would have done differently if I was to do it again. First of all the tournament was very fun, I had 3 great games all in 1 day, faced 3 new opponents who played very differently to what I was used to and had to try tactics I have never really used. Even playing at such a different points level was an enjoyment, so I will defiantly have to go to more in the future.

The spirits come forth

The latest models to come from my painting desk are these 3 wraithguard. As i use them a fair amount in my games so it was about time i started on them. Granted i still have another 7 to paint but i had to start some where.

40K at the Forge: Game 3 Eldar vs Necrons

A lone war walker faces off against a destroyer lord

Game 3 of 40K at the Forge and I’m not in a bad position with 1 win and 1 draw and only 2 people currently both having 2 wins. After all the games are drawn the 2 players with 2 wins each are facing off, so if i can pull out a victory here i will come second. Who is my opponent? Necrons, i have never played Necrons before so this will be very interesting, i have no knowledge of the rules, but i have a few ideas of what they can do.

40K at the Forge: Game 2 Eldar vs Tyranids

Game two of the 1000 point tournament and i'm up against Tyranids on a rather empty table compared to my last game. While this isn't a bad thing for me, as i have a lot of shooting, it means he's not really showed down by terrain either. For game 1 click here.

40K at the Forge: Game 1 Eldar vs Eldar

To start the tournament we all were given a random opponent and assigned a random table, each table being totally different, some with a large amount of terrain, others with little to none, just the luck of the draw, so 
you can’t complain really. My first opponent was randomly selected and I was up against Eldar... well isn’t that just a kick in the nuts.

Creeping Rot... Eldar/Dark eldar Vs Deathguard chaos space marines 1500

I dropped into the gaming club again and played against Dave, a brilliant painter whose orks I have played against before but he had his chaos space marine army with him this time round. So we played 1500 points, Purge the alien, vanguard strike deployment.

Well this is the second practice game for the tournament but I used a different list. This list revolved around fire dragons instead of wraithlords. This one is against blood angels.
