Adepticon 2018 Doubles Event Display Board

March 28, 2018 Posted by cranky




The planning for Adepticon 2018 Horus Heresy event was more than a year in the making for my doubles team partner Paul and I, and we had a great time putting the dream into reality for our Word Bearers & Malinax display board for the event. Having just come off of LVO 2017, and looking for our next project for 2017 / 2018, we landed on Word Bearers armies with House Malinax allies for our next big project. A lot of work went into the planning and execution over the course of the year. The project got underway in March of 2017 and in 2018 we landed in Schaumburg to play in the doubles tournament!

It lives! Lumpy the Nurgle Daemon Prince is painted!

May 11, 2017 Posted by cranky


Hey everyone, Cranky Old Gamer here and I excited to finally say that a project that has long been on my “to be completed” shelf is finally done. A long while back I started a little conversion project for a Nurgle Daemon Prince, who I named “Lumpy” (for hopefully apparent reasons). Well, he sat in my “needs to be painted pile” for long enough, and I’m happy to say I’m really happy with how he turned out. It didn’t take me too long to paint him, and maybe it was just that I was working on other projects. But I got inspired to come back to him. What do you think?

Zone Meatalis!

April 11, 2017 Posted by cranky


The name says it all – what could be better than good friends, good food, and Horus Heresy Zone Mortalis? I had some friends over to Chez Cranky for some Zone Mortalis games and some good slow-smoked BBQ (hence the “meat”…). Much incredible food was brought over by all and vast quantities of it were consumed before a great 3 on 3 battle of Zone Mortalis for the Northwest 30k‘s In the Shadows of Isstvan campaign. Much merriment, good cheer, full bellies, and lethal Zone Mortalis action was had! Pictures within – check it out!

Hello one and all and welcome to the massive picture dump of the Horus Heresy Invitational! This event was organized by Northwest 30k fearless leader David Leggé and graciously hosted by Paul Sewell of Heroic Knight Games in Issaquah, WA. Many gamers showed up (a total of 24 players, 6 players battling it out on 3 Zone Mortalis boards, and 18 players playing on regular 4×6 tables) for some awesome Horus Heresy action. So many great armies on display, and the Northwest 30k scene is growing and with a lot of really great people. And a mysterious creature showed up on one table!!!! I wasn’t able to spend the whole day there due to other commitments, but took some pictures, as well as posted other’s pictures from the day here, for your enjoyment – check it out!

Las Vegas Open 2017 – Horus Heresy Gaming

February 8, 2017 Posted by cranky



Hey everyone! Just back from Vegas and wanted to share my experience and my pictures of the Las Vegas Open 2017, particularly the Horus Heresy events I attended. This year at LVO for the 30k scene there was a “Horus Heresy Mega-Battle” (giant apocalypse style game), and a 6-round 2,500 point tournament played on Saturday and Sunday. The Northwest 30k crew made it down to Vegas and had a blast playing 30k, meeting old friends, and making new ones, all while enjoying the 30k hobby. Warning – pic heavy! Check out the Horus Heresy action below!
