Game Review: Space Crusade

Developed By: Gremlin Interactive

Platform(s): DOS, Android(?)

Genre: Turn Based Strategy


Space Crusade is a 1992 video game based on the Space Crusade board game. It was one of the earliest video games of the Warhammer 40,000 series, being released in between first and second edition in 1990. The board game was produced jointly by Milton Bradley and Games Workshop, and included several Warhammer 40,000 miniatures. The game consisted of 2-4 players, with 1-2 marine players, and a 4th Alien player. Taking control of squads of Ultramarines, Imperial Fists or Blood angels, the players would need to guide their squads through several dangerous and challenging maps, defeating enemies, managing squad resources, and achieving critical Primary and Secondary objectives. The video game version of this is literally a digital version of the board game, so much of what I reference in this review will be relevant to both the video and board game versions. read more

Tales of the Singular Gamer Part 7

The Dark Millennium Diet Plan*
-How to lose those unsightly miniatures and make your table top battlefield slim and toned, free of excess plastic that you don’t want nor need-
With your 40K health guru Gibson Rickenbacker**

That’s right 40k fans the Greatest Lover in the World Commander O’Shea’s Dark Millennium has swung by for another year of top quality gaming, some less than top quality gaming and some just awful…awful gaming…truly awful gaming, more awful than playing soggy biscuit to meta fit music. read more

Baptism of Fire(storm)

Howdy everyone! Hope you are all awesome.

The keenly observant amongst you will have noted my absence from both articles on the website, and indeed on the return of the podcast (thanks to Ryan, Innes and Aidhan for their efforts on this so far). As you may or may not be aware, I’ve been on a somewhat extended hobby break due to a new arrival at home in the form of a baby girl! She is extremely demanding of my time, and so far I haven’t had really any opportunity to flex any sort of hobby muscles since Dark Millennium earlier this year. That’s no writing, no gaming, no painting no podcasting since February! I would be lying as well if I said that i had even opened any of my cases! read more

How to be a Flawless Host

Name: Dan “The Vulcanologist” Oldfield
Age:41 and a half
(Pre)occupation: CHAOS! (inc DA,obviously) and occasionally Space Wolves
Favourite rule: Heroic Intervention
Melee Weapon of Choice: Thunderhammer

This brings me on to my current fascination: The Flawless Host and it’s unbelievable combat potential in a competitive army. That being said, I only consider a few elements of FH to be competitive for the reasons below.

Whilst 8th edition 40k is predominantly a shooting game, and that the horrible Purge armour list played by Don “Back Once Again with the Renegade Master” Hoosen is better but I’m hopeful that the new +1 A for all Astartes will help mitigate this bias, and I’m looking at ways Make Combat Great Again. read more

ITC Fingering

Been a wee while since I’ve spraffed nonsense on here, but again it’s been some time since I’ve been to any events. My spidey sense tells me that I was supposed to follow up my preview post about Dark Millenium, which I never did. Despite a lot of fun and some classic moments, my Death Guard finished in true mid table obscurity fashion with a 3 and 2, so no great surprises there.

Like I said, it had been months since my previous event and I decided that a trip to Newcastle for the Summer Slam GT would be worth it. She Who Thirsts’ is from there, so we could catch up with her family shenanigans and I could also play some games, win win. It would also be my first experience with ITC missions. I was looking forward with baited breath at the mind frying variety of strategic and tactical wizardry that would accompany this exploration of the unknown ITC void. read more
