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?

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!

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!

The Northwest 30k community hosted a 30k tournament on December 10th, 2016, in Lake Stevens, WA, and much fun was had by all! What a great tournament and loads of fun with great opponents and beautiful armies.

We made the trip up to MOB Games in Lake Stevens, WA for the event. Many folks were getting armies painted up for the event right up to the 10th, and it was very inspiring to see so many great armies there, as well as new members to the 30k community – we hope to see you again in an event soon!

Check out some pictures of the event below, and I for one am looking forward to our next event!
