Black Library Submission

Hey guys!

Still on holiday, but have limited access to all things wi-fi! Unfortunately I got the dreaded “rejection letter” from Black Library for my excerpt! It does mean on the plus side that I can share it with you all though!

This is not actually the version I submitted (but it’s close), I only have access to this one just now, but hopefully you should get the gist. Enjoy!

As his eyes fluttered open, his vision was blurry and his ears were ringing. Arux slowly rose, bringing his chest up to his knees. His hands snapped to his chest – realising his armour had been stripped. He rubbed his eyes, noting a chemical stench on his hands. As he staggered to his feet, a loincloth unfurled to the floor, stopping between his ankles. In front of him stood a full length mirror – he had been stripped of all other apparel, and clearly been bathed. read more

House Ordos Project Blog – Mission 2

So I’ve finally found the time to start working on the project! I absolutely wanted to magnetise my knights, so I thought that a good (yet productive) test would be to build the Armiger Warglaives that were in the Forgebane kit. It was a while ago, but if you want to check out that unboxing video, you can see that below:

Forgebane Unboxing

I cracked out the instructions – one thing I will say, is that the build guides for some of the newer kits are actually pretty decent. I still remember the days of building metal Shokk Attack gunz! read more

House Ordos Project Blog – Mission 1

Hi Guys!

So for those of you who know me, you will know I am an absolute hobby disaster. In fact, i’m routinely mocked with videos such as the one below (which admittedly, gets me in stitches).

I’ve also sort of adopted the monkier “Clarence”, due to my stuff looking like poor brother Clarence here:

So i’m determined to discard this moniker and produce something that is passable on the tabletop!

I’ve decided to have a go at doing an Imperial Knight (with Astra Militarum allies) army. The main reason for this is that I think that starting with Imperial Knights is hopefully going to be something easier to work with from a painting perspective. Towards that end, I have been watching the Duncan Tutorial videos on the Wahammer TV website, and I have to say that the guy is an absolute genius! read more

List Building with Harlequins

Image result for harlequin images 40k

I’m starting to think more seriously about lists. I’ve tried a few variations, but I think it probably comes down to 2 basic archetypes  – Pure or with Allies, or in other words, do I take Drukhari and/or Craftworld, or just stick with Harlies.

In this post I’m going to think about options for a pure Harlies List, and in the next talk about allies.

Tales of the Singular Gamer – Part 2

Hey there 40K fans, it’s that time of the month again when I update you all with progress of my fledgling hive fleet.

As you may recall from the last edition of Tales of the Singular Gamer I was embarking on a new army to be collected and reported on a monthly basis, last time I left off with the bold claim that I would have read the Tyranids codex from cover to cover as many times as possible and also to build up my buttery Nids form the start collecting box.

Well I am happy to report it’s been a successful month, I have managed to read the codex and build up all the models with only a few minor injuries and setbacks. read more

Harlequins at Eternal Warrior II

Just back from Eternal Warrior II where I ran Harlies with some Drukhari back up. I also went 3-0, coming third which I was please with.

So, usual plan, some brief bat reps and a list analysis.

The list I took was

Holmfirth Gaming Centre

Hi Guys! We were recently contacted by Jay Muffitt, who runs Holmfirth Gaming Centre. They opened back in 2015, but have been growing steadily and now want to try their hand at running some bigger events. They are very near Stockport (which many of you may recognise from the various Caledonian Events ran by Element Games). You can check out their website below, but after this are some words from Jay himself about the history and growth of the community. Enjoy!

Coulrophobia – Part 1

Image result for harlequins 40k images

“Coulrophobia – an irrational fear of clowns is known as coulrophobia, with the prefix “coulro” coming from the ancient Greek word for “one who goes on stilts.”

Nothing irrational about it if you ask me!!

A Berzerkers Tale of Stronghold VII

Hey there everybody, Kurt the Khorne Berzerker here to give you all a mini report of my experiences at the Stronghold VIII event that was held on the 12th of May. It all started a week or so beforehand when I heard that there was going to be the chance of some bloodletting and skull taking at  Stronghold, so I made a few calls and got the band back together, we had to borrow a Land Raider though from the Black Templars across the street. At first they tried to put up a protest, but the removal of their skulls soon ended any disagreements and we were off up the M77 (bet you didn’t know the brass throne is actually in a small village in Ayrshire) killing, maiming and burning on our jolly way. read more

Grand Tournament 2018 – The Final!



So with the weekend out of the way, the travel back from Coventry done, and the grind of work back in full swing, its time to talk about how this tournament went for me. 

I played 5 games across the Friday – Sunday, which did allow me some time to get out and look around what was on offer!
