8th ed 40K Battle Report: Hunting Sorcerers

Today, Maisey and I bring you our first 40K 8th edition battle report. It will cover the splodes,  who done them, and why they was done. At the end, Maisey's providing a reflective plenary on his tactical learning points. The backstory (w hy was the splodes done?) There wasn't officially any backstory, but my subconscious provided one anyway: Inquisitor Drake  has heard rumours of heretic astartes poking about in some pre-Imperial ruins on Samalut IX . Putting on his brownest trousers, Drake has come to put a stop to... whatever it is they're doing. Upon arrival, he requests assistance from the most mobile Guard units available and heads for the traitors' last known location. He normally likes to plan things meticulously, so this sort of tactical improvisation scares the hell out of him. The armies (who done the splodes?) Both forces weigh in at a power level of 70. The Imperial force consists of a mechanised battalion (+3CP) from the Ankran 107th, and a

Inquisition Acolytes & painting plans for 2018

This is a post of two halves orbiting around the theme of “ I PAINTED THIS. ” Over the last year, I ’ ve made the shocking discovery that having deadlines results in getting stuff done. Conversely, anything without a deadline was either done slowly or not at all. Fancy that. Annual hobby progress log & plans for 2018 Lately I ’ ve been doing the hobby equivalent of spring cleaning: finishing off the last little bits of various projects. Last year was billed as the Year of Finishing, and I ’ d call it a moderate success. In 2017 I … Finally finished my ork speed freaks in time for   the SamalutIX campaign (with some last-minute help from Maisey). Made a   warband for Frostgrave in time for, well … playing Frostgrave .

Painted the   Tabletop World guard tower . Expanded my BFG fleets for the Navy and

The Onefinger Tribe

Way back in 2014... Excuse me while I have a little dizzy moment as I realise that was FOUR YEARS AGO!! ... ahem... Right back in the room. Back in 2014 I introduced a little side project as a break from my endless undead army. This was a band of Ogres named the One Finger Tribe: The Protecterors of Ostland and their back story can be found Here- Blood, Sweat, and Flab. Since then I actually finished the rest of the tribe but had rudely neglected to share them with you. So without further ado I give you, The One Finger Tribe: Nargutt Onefinger: Leader of the tribe. Lost 4 fingers on one hand after winning a bet over who could catch a spinning dagger out of the air. Nargutt isn’t the greatest leader, but he is the biggest and strongest, which is enough to keep him in power for now. Comehere Chickenchaser: Short of brain power, big on chickens. What he lacks in intelligence he makes up for in violence, an affinity with gut magic, and his now infamous offal and

Frostgrave: Critterwatch Episode One

Hello everyone! I'm rogue Druid Kri Spackham, we've packed up the studio and come out here to the frozen wasteland of Frostgrave to take a look at the exciting wildlife in this thawing hellhole. Join us as we explore in this year's Critterwatch! Theme music plays Lets jump straight to those live cameras as we've seen some incredible action already today! A territorial challenge between a greater frost wyrm and a snow troll! It might look like a back garden in Cardiff but no! It's the heart of the frozen city! It has snowed a lot lately here... like, not a lot for Canada but tons for Wales So with that challenge ending in tentative, immobile standoff it's probably worth looking closer at these wonderful creatures and how they've come to live in this overly-chilled wizard-ghetto. Firstly, of course, neither of these are truly natural, they are in fact Not Proper Creatures (NPCs) created by magic and now wandering the city supplementing their diet
