Learning Curve: 40K and why I suck

ravenwing-librarian-4Hello again, sorry it’s been a while.  I think I’m in a kind of post-Christmas-binge induced slothery.  Anyway I haven’t been completely idle, I’ve painted two Blood Bowl teams (more on these when the bases are completed) and played a third game of 40K.  This time with my long-time banter buddy Ant who’d just acquired a new traitor guard regiment and wanted to get back into the game.  So how did it go?

The Fall of Cadia

This Gathering Storm bundle collects together the new releases around the Gathering Storm: Fall of Cadia, part one in the Gathering Storm series. It features a copy of The Gathering Stom: Fall of Cadia, a deck of Empyric Storm Cards and three incredible Citadel miniatures.

Codex: Imperial Agents

While the Imperium draws great advantage from the unbelievable weight of manpower it can bring to bear, the diversity of its military is its greatest strength. Many, many esoteric factions are expected to answer the call to protect humanity, from the arcane Adeptus Mechanicus, to the merciless, psychically-gifted Grey Knights and all in between. The forces of the Imperium are myriad and distinct, but all follow the Emperor’s divine will – through this common goal, they strive to ensure the continued if fraught survival of Mankind.

Sunday Colour: True Scale Marine pt 2

Hi all, last week I shared my method for making the torso’s and legs for Art-Scale Marines.  In case you missed it you should certainly check it out here.  Once you’ve finished with that come back here and learn how I do arms and see the almost finished Marines in the flesh.

Sunday Colour: True-Scale Space Wolves

Sorry that I’ve been absent for a few weeks.  Real life has been absurdly busy and that’s left little time for projects unfortunately and even less to type about it!  So what was going to be a short but challenging project to build some art-scale Grey Hunters has been dragged out for quite some time now.

Terrain Corner – River Sections

You’ll always get those moments with bits of terrain when you look at them and think that’s not that special, but I guess it’ll do.  I used to be very much like that and it’s been more about getting stuff on the table and playing games than the elements behind the scene like terrain.  But as some of you may have seen in my other articles I’ve been slowly trying to up my game.

Learning Curve 40K first game report

A couple of weeks ago I posted an army list for my re-introduction to 40K.  I was set to take my dubiously skilled Night Lords into battle against the might of the First Legion piloted by an experienced General.  Chris is a really nice guy and I thoroughly enjoyed the game despite the eventual result.

Terrain Corner – Display Board

With my other Terrain articles I’ve been aiming for an end product that has some use when gaming.  So the Trees and Asteroids have a purpose, the piece this time doesn’t really have a purpose in any game and it’s all for show.

When your out doing demo’s it’s really nice to have something for the mini’s your using to sit on.  Whilst a nice glass cabinet is great, it’s a bit much to drag around to places that I’m just doing a demo at.  After seeing Mark’s Armies on Parade post it reminded me that my current display board was not only a little small for my expanding force but very bland.  It’s just a piece of a very old Zuzzy matt dry brushed and stuck on some blue foam.
