Tyranids vs Imperial Fists with Imperial guard 1500: Breaking the Wave

After my friend let me borrow his tyranids to play around with the new codex I immediately challenged someone who I knew would love to face a swarm of nids. This game was a 1500 point game of Purge the Alien with dawn of war deployment, the Tyranids face the Imperial fists with imperial guard allies, wish me luck.

Apocalypse pictures: Jan 2014

These are the pictures from my recent apocalypse game, the sides each had 6000 points (2 Teams of 3 players) and we rolled on the apocalypse mission table and ended up playing Final Assault, but we didn't use the Unnatural Disasters table as we had enough to do in our time limit (and we didn't have the resources).

Wraithknight Finished/Come the Apocalypse

I have just about finished the wraithknight in time for the apocalyspe game, and here he is for you all to see. While I am quite happy with him he does unfortunatly look a bit plain and im still not 100% happy with his 'face'. But still I can do more after the game.

Borrowed Nids

This rather large force of tyranids belongs to a friend of mine and he has very generously let me borrow it for the time being to test out the new nids codex. I will probably only have a game or two with them before going back to my eldar, but a bit of a change is always fun.

Eldar vs Tyranids 1500: Hunger from the void

A Shadow in the warp has surrounded an exodite world, and they have called out for help from their craftworld brethren, Dem-Kirath always answers the call. This is a 1500 point game between Eldar and Tyranids in a game of Crusade (4 objectives) with vanguard strike deployment. Will the eldar be able to stave off the swarms of the great devourer or will all be digested before it.

Wraithknight W.I.P part 2

This is the current state of my wraithknight after i attacked it with a paintbrush again. He is slowly getting there, and is looking a lot better, but it is obvious i still need to do a lot of work to him. Next on my list to do on him is to go over the bone again, its very messy at the moment and i need to get it a nice even colour. The metal needs another highlight and wash.  The guns are a big thing to do but i will go over them again later on.

Tyranids 1500 list: Ignoring the rest of the internet!

I thought I would ignore the nay Sayers of the internet who say Tyranids suck, and have a go at creating my own tyranid list. And I’m happy with what I have made so far, I do want to try it out in the future, so I might borrow some tyranids from a friend of mine soon. The biggest thing that struck me about the new codex was that carnifex’s are cheap, very cheap, guess where this is going...

Wraithknight W.I.P

I will soon be taking part in an apocalypse game where each player has to bring a fully painted (or as close as) army with them so it looks a lot better than our last few apocalypse games. I have written a quick list, which is mostly tanks to cut down on the painting i have to do (cheating i know. All i have left to do is my wraithknight, so only 1 model to paint before the 28th of jan, not too bad.

Tyranid codex: Review

I have seen a fair few reviews of this codex saying that they are bitterly disappointed and that the codex isn’t as good as it should be. While I can see why they are saying that, I have come to a rather different conclusion of my own. Granted the codex doesn’t have a big new shiny unit like the wraithknight or the riptide but I believe that the codex has its gems none the less.

Eldar vs Blood angels 1500: Deaths Decent

I was very nervous going to battle without my lord of war choice as I have relied upon it in the last few games a bit too much. Which is an odd feeling, considering how many games I have played before you could take lords of war I should be happy about it. In this game I came across a Blood Angels drop pod list, which is something I have never really faced before so a new challenge for me to face. The game was Emperors Will with vanguard strike deployment.

Evolving list: Back to Basics (No lord of war)

With my Lynx running rampant on the battle field it has made me want to take a step back and go back to a normal list, not using a lord of war. I am very aware that people will still be using them in battle, meaning that I have to prepare my force to take on a super-heavy should one appear.

Eldar vs Imperial Guard 1850... The Reaching Blade

Once again the Imperial Guard stray across the path of the Eldar and so they must pay, not only that but if they are allowed to carry on their course they will inadvertently bring upon great peril to the Dem-Kirath craftworld. They have to be destroyed. This report is an 1850 point game of Ultimate Linebreaker, Eldar vs Imperial guard.

Digital Editions

I recently bought the inquisition codex from black library for my kindle fire and it was quite the hassle. It was the first time I bought something from the games workshop digital range and so I bought it on the kindle and attempted to download it straight to it. After several attempts this didn't work and after a quick search on the black library website I was no closer to a solution.

Review of 2013 and here comes 2014

Last year i had a post reviewing 2012 and my aims for 2013, well lets do the same this year. Overall i feel 2013 has been good to me hobby wise, i have learnt a lot about how to play the game and indeed the game has changed a lot as well. With a lot of exiting things on the horizon for us i can see 2014 being a very interesting year for 40k players.
