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

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

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

House Ordos Project Blog – Mission 11

Greetings fans of the Executrix!

In this installment I get the Castellan up to scratch like the rest of his Knightly Cohorts. I’m going to keep this article shorter, because many of the techniques I used to paint this model are ones that I have already discussed through painting both the Armiger and Questoris class knights. So firstly i’ll just show you some photos of the chassis from the painting process:

One difference in this model that I did want to draw attention to was the Plasma Decimator. Plasma guns are something that i’ve been scared of in the past. I usually just slap on one colour and call it finished. I went to check YouTube for a tutorial, and to my relief and surprise, there was a Duncan tutorial on just this subject! read more

House Ordos Project Blog – Mission 10

Greetings fans of the Executrix!

So with the colour scheme nailed, it was time to move onto painting the Questoris Knights. I painted both Knights together over the space of a few days, doing the same parts on each knight at the same time. This way I found it easier to maintain a level of consistency – not too different to the “production line” technique that i’ve seen applied to units such as Tactical Squads or the likes.

As mentioned in an earlier post, I had undercoated all of the components with a spray base-coat of Mechanicus Standard Grey: read more
