Road to the LVO Update

I’m afraid real life has been kicking my butt recently, and I’ve been a bit remiss in reporting on tournaments and the development of my list for the LVO.

So, to bring all of you (who care!), up to date –  I’ve been to 3 tournaments since STO4, the Freedom GT (2 days, 4 Games, ETC rules set), Winter War (one day, 3 games), and the Grand Strategist GT (2 days, 5 games, ETC rules), and bluntly my performance has been pretty poor (4-9 for those keeping score)!

Game Review: Space Wolf

Developed By: Herocraft

Platform(s): Microsoft Windows, iOS, Android

Genre: Turn Based Card Game

Overview

Sons of Fenris rejoice! Assume the mantle of Valgard Twice-Slain as you take control of a small cadre of Space Wolves, who find them in the midst of the fight of their lives in the Fall of Kanak. Space Wolf is a strategy game of sorts – but it’s blended in with some Trading Card Game (TCG) elements. I know that sounds really weird, but stick with me and I will tell all!

Gameplay

Space Wolf is a very unique game, which nicely blends the worlds of TCGs and Turn based strategy gameplay. Both parts are integral to the overall experience, and it’s important to have a good feel for both of these elements in order to succeed in this game. You control a squad of 1-3 (sometimes joined by bonus reinforcements) Space Wolves during every mission, and the missions vary in scope. These range from defeating a key enemy, to reaching a key point on the map (sometimes within a time limit). read more

Tales of the Singular Gamer – Part 5

The Two Things You Need In 40K…Skill, Luck and The List*

A long long time ago at a gaming event far far away – and I really do mean far away – the venue for the tournament was not only in the wilderness but it was nestled snugly in the place where outsiders are shunned shagged eaten or all three, you get introduced to the wife and sister with only one person standing there and dueling banjos is everybody’s ring tone.

But anyway we safely made it to the venue without farmer Jeremiah eating our asses or humping them to get a days’ worth of quality gaming in, I was using a Mechanicus list and was obviously smashing all who dared stand before me into small bite sized pieces…apart from the inconsiderate bastards that didn’t let this happen and smashed me instead. However dear reader, that is not the point of this ramble because at some time during the days quality gaming I asked Bernard how he was getting on, to which his reply was a shrug of the shoulders before grabbing a handful of dice, dropping them on the table and saying ‘that’s how it’s going’. That is when lightning struck my brain… read more

Game Review: Space Hulk – Deathwing (PS4)

Developed By: Streum On Studio, Cyanide

Platform(s): Microsoft Windows, Playstation 4

Genre: First Person Shooter

Overview

Step into the (armoured) boots of one of the Dark Angels’ finest, as you brave the unknown depths of a derelict Space Hulk! Deathwing is a First Person Shooter, where you take command of a small squad of three Dark Angels First Company (also known as the Deathwing) Terminators.  You play as an unnamed Librarian, and joining you are companions Barachiel and Nahum. Your quest will take you deep into enemy territory, as you unleash the deadly weapons at your disposal in the fight against the Genestealer menace! read more

Game Review: The Horus Heresy – Battle of Tallarn

Developed By: Hexwar

Platform(s): Microsoft Windows, iOS, Android, Mac

Genre: Turn Based Strategy

Overview

The astute among you will undoubtedly say “wait, this is a 30k game, not a 40k game”! While this is true, we wouldn’t have the 40k universe that we all know and love without the hardships that our heroes (and heretics) endured during the Horus Heresy. Battle of Tallarn is a turn based strategy game, in which you command Chaos or Imperium forces (the choice is yours) in the legendary armoured division battle which took place all the way back in the 31st millennium. Command waves of tanks, or even more fearsome war machines such as Reaver titans, and lay waste to the opposing forces in mortal combat! read more

Patreon Page Launched

Hi Everyone!

For those of you who might be interested, we have launched a brand new Patreon page, which can be found at the below link:

Nothing is changing in terms of content for the website – our podcast and website are free and always will be. This is merely a way of us setting up a page for any followers who might want to donate to the website. The Patreon is basic for the moment, but come the new year we will look at ways to develop this new platform.

As always, thank you to everyone for your support! read more

Game Review: Inquisitor – Martyr (PS4)

Developed By: NeoCore Games

Platform(s): Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, Xbox One

Genre: Action RPG

Overview

Inquisitor: Martyr is an Action RPG game (in the same vein as the Diablo series), where you don the mantle of one of the Imperium’s most feared agents. Slaying your way through hordes of enemies, your ultimate goal (besides gaining more loot and power – believe me there is much of this to be had) is to get to the bottom of the mystery surrounding the mysterious space hulk “Martyr” which has just recently re-emerged from the tides of the immaterium in the Calligari sector. There are also an infinite number of side quests and missions available to you, such that you might level up and develop your character as much as your heart desires! For reference, I have only played the PS4 version of this game, and also mostly only the campaign. read more

Game Review: Rites of War

Developed By: Dreamforge

Platform(s): Microsoft Windows

Genre: Turn-based Strategy

Overview

Welcome to the first of a new 40k Video Game review series! With the tournament scene drawing to a close for another year, and the cold Winter and Christmas nights ahead – what better way to remain immersed in the 41st Millennium than by playing some of the great (and some not so great) 40k video games! This is going to be an ongoing series, so expect to see these crop up from time to time. I recently picked up Inquisitor: Martytr, Deathwing and Deathwatch (and i’ll get to those) – but I thought I would start with a game that is near and dear to my heart – Rites of War. I’m not going to keep all of my reviews spoiler free, but neither will I go into great detail about the storyline with each individual game – that’s half the fun! read more

The Top 10 Units in 40k

Hi everyone, thanks for clicking this clearly click-bait title!

Before most of you lean forward at your PCs (or mobile devices) with torches and pitchforks in hand in anticipation, let me preface this article by saying that this is merely one gamer’s stab at trying to pin down the top units in the game (at least for now).

Trying to predict the meta in the game right now is like dangling upside down, wearing a blindfold, trying to shoot a water pistol at a moving target all at once – nigh on impossible! For the benefit of those who may read this article at a later time, this is just after the Ork FAQ, and still before Chapter Approved, so at the time of writing these are (at least I think so anyway) reasonable opinions about the real pecking order of the 41st Millennium! read more

House Ordos Project Blog – Mission 12

Greetings fans of the Executrix!

If you are reading this post, i’m assuming that you have followed the journey of building this army from the start. If that’s the case (and even if it’s not), thank you SO much for following this journey. It’s been an absolute pleasure to share this experience on the website, and I hope that you’ve enjoyed following it along the way.

I feel like I have learned so much, and tried so many things:

  • Magnetising
  • Stripping Paint
  • Basing Techniques
  • Plasma Glow Effects
  • Freehand Banner Work
  • Knowing how to thin my paints!
  • Transfer sealing

I’ve made this point a few times in the series, but I really want to express how bad a hobbyist I usually am! But If I can at least have an attempt at these techniques, you absolutely can give it a go as well! I hope in some small way my techniques and experiences have helped you (or at least shown you what to avoid)! read more
