40k Zone Mortalis – Eldar vs. Salamanders

March 5, 2016 Posted by cranky

Had a great game day this Saturday with the gaming crew and we got a game of Zone Mortalis in with 40k armies. We didn’t use the full ZM rules as we’re still getting our collective memories back with the 40k rule set. But we did do 2 40k armies provided by my friend John, using Eldar vs. Salamanders Space Marines. I played the Eldar (first time ever playing Eldar) and John fielded his trusty Marines. Craig provided the amazing custom Zone Mortalis boards and moral support (mostly for John as you’ll see in the bat rep later on. Great time was had and I definitely felt the power of the Eldar coursing through my veins as we played this game! Check out the army lists and some pictures of the battle as it unfolded as the Salamanders attempt to recover as many relics as they can before the crafty Eldar make off with their ancient and forbidden xeno-tech!

Episode 1 of The Siege of Thrax campaign saw the Forces of Ruin (Chaos Space Marines and Orks) descend upon the Hive World of Thrax in a quest to wake the forces of Chaos sleeping beneath the planet’s surface. In an epic series of battles, the first part of the campaign saw the Forces of Ruin victorious. Now, the sword of battle is drawn as the Forces of Ruin make their push to capture key objectives on the planet. Cities, key roads, landing fields, areas of war supplies become desperate battlefields as loyalist forces attempt to hold at all costs and stop the advance.


Apocalypse Battles! 9/28/2013

September 28, 2013 Posted by cranky


I had the opportunity to watch a local gaming group (Neighborhood Waagh! on Facebook) hold a couple of Apocalypse battles here in Seattle this last weekend. I must say that it was pretty impressive! 8000 points a side, and one custom gaming table, bringing my son along (although he found a buddy playing iPad and immediately got sucked into watching the games he was playing). It was fun to watch a few hours of battle unfold for these guys. I’ve posted some pics of the two concurrent tables playing their battles.

June 3, 2013 Posted by cranky

Hey all, my good friend John once again pulls through with the 40k book review – this time with his favorite army of all time, the enigmatic Eldar, in their return from their long-overdue update. John’s been chomping at the bit to get his hands on the codex, and I’m sure he’s already put together his new army lists (and purchase lists!) based on its contents. Let’s take a look at the pros and cons of the newest incarnation of these aloof and enigmatic xenos. John’s review follows:
