I managed to squeak in a game of Kill-Team at the Clubhouse yesterday, versus a Tau kill-team. We rolled for the mission after selecting our Kill-Team, and we ended up with Take Prisoners, which didn't seem so bad until we read more about it. Turns out, being within 1 inch of an enemy to capture … Continue reading Kill Team Battle Report: Take Prisoners!
It has been a little while! To be honest, work kind of kicked my butt, and being tired and burnt out doesn't help ones motivation to paint. But, I figured if I didn't paint something eventually I would fall back into bad habits of never painting anything! So, to get back on the horse, I … Continue reading Getting back on the horse!
Just a small update today, as work was pretty tiring and I need a day to recharge the hobby batteries. But, as I came home yesterday night, a package awaited me. The big dude on the left needs no introduction to veteran Guard players, but is Gunnery Sergeant "Stonetooth" Harker. 100% grade A catachan badass. … Continue reading A wee bit of assembly!
Another day, another Vostroyan done. This medic is for my command squad, and while the medics aren't terribly useful he looks fantastic, and thus has a place in my army. He is younger then most of the other veterans in the command team, and his mustache has yet to grey with age. I might revisit … Continue reading Medic! And a sneak peek at next months big project!

The … Continue reading Confessions of a Lore-Addict: The Importance of Theme and Context
So, after a week of frantic batch painting, I finally got a chance to run the Catachan 890th in a game of Kill-Team! They passed their first test with flying colors, sure, they didn't win but they didn't fail me completely either. It was, as always in this wonderful club I'm in, a much grander … Continue reading Kill-Team After Action Report!
You folks got a sneak-peek (So far, folks = 0, so this is just me future proofing out of sheer optimism!) at my Catachan Kill-Team. When I was deciding what to play for Kill-Team, there really was only one option for me; Good old Poor Bloody Infantry. But while my Vostroyans are beautiful models, they … Continue reading Kill-Team!
So I started this blog, if one could call it starting, sometime in 2013. I made one post, then, doubting myself, never continued it. I've since then both matured as a gamer and as a person, and feel like giving it another go. My wargaming inspirations are many, but probably easily in the top 3 … Continue reading A New Beginning
