For those of you new to this blog, it may surprise you to hear that this started, originally, as a 40k-centric blog. While over time this has evolved, I always did play it, in the background, as well. I just get very focused on my passion projects of the moment, presently Zona Alfa, Very British … Continue reading A Return to Warhammer, and(not related) a whole lot of Blackshirts…
It was quite the early start, leaving at 6:00 am, and after our 3 and a bit hour drive we arrived at the Bunker in Welland, Ontario. When we eventually got there, my excitable nature took over and I didn't take a lot of pictures, so you'll have to take it on faith that the … Continue reading End of the Road: My Trip to Miniwargaming!
At the Clubhouse, Myself and a few others have been running a narrative campaign, based around a star system of our own devising, the Alatheian Abyss. Round one of the campaign was a success for everyone, and going into round 2 we decided to shake things up a bit, at least on this one mission. … Continue reading Into the Hulk: An attempt at Zone Mortalis in 8th Edition
Hey guys, before I begin I would just like to say the attention I have been getting recently has been great! I was shocked to log in after my last post to see far more viewers then I usually garner. It was a real boost to my motivation! There while be more Praetorian Guard and … Continue reading Chaos in the Abyss: A Narrative Project
So followers of this blog know that I'm a big Guard fan. What may not be as immediately obvious is my love of 18th/19th century warfare. The smell of powder, the sound of musket fire, and bright flashy uniforms are my kryptonite. The Vostroyans fit this bill to a certain degree, but GW rather wisely … Continue reading Blast from the Past: Praetorian Guard!
Hey there folks, yesterday I participated in a small town tournament at the Giddy Goblin in Hanover, Ontario. Usually, I'm not much for competitive games of any sort, in wargaming I prefer pick up games and fluffy battles over bringing the newest fromage. But, figuring it would give me a much needed kick in the … Continue reading The Tale of the Golden Bolter Shell; A Tournament After Action Report
Finally finished my 2000 point list for the tournament tomorrow, after a solid week of painting Vostroyans. Now, I've never done a tournament before of any kind, so this sort of competitive play will be an an interesting change of pace. It is using the ITC Championship rules, a huge change from normal play with … Continue reading Fully Painted…Battle Ready?
It's been a while since I've made a post; I have been quite a busy beaver! My friend and I did a joint Forge World order a while ago, and he came bearing many kits, as he had also been downtown Toronto to Meeplemart, a large gaming store, where he picked up even more stuff … Continue reading The Backlog goes on and on…
Just a quick little update today, work really kicked my butt and drained my hobby reserves, but the next few days should be fruitful, and I will post quite a bit in the following few days. But, as you can see, I got the old 1995 era Commissar painted up! A nice easy model, but … Continue reading I am the Law and the Lash!
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!
