Game day picture – Caption Contest!

November 23, 2012 Posted by cranky

Had a great game day today with one of my regular sparring partners Marc and we had big fun with Space Wolves vs. Nurgle, 1250 points. Special rules were “no vehicles” – we agreed to try no vehicle lists. Dreadnoughts/walkers were allowed but neither of us took them. It was a great back and forth game, and Space Wolves ended up victorious. Highlights included the last turn of the game and the last Plague Marine, about to be charged by a Grey Hunter squad with a fist, did overwatch fire with his plasma gun, and died on a Gets Hot! roll. Brilliant! Other highlights include the picture below…


Zone Mortalis Game Day – Pictures

November 16, 2012 Posted by cranky

Last weekend we had a Zone Mortalis game day. The rules are captured in the ForgeWorld Horus Heresy Book 1 – “Betrayal” book. It’s a heck of a lot of fun and a good way to mix up your standard 40k game a little bit. The idea was to have small battles in the confines of a underground complex or a derelict space hulk or some other enclosed area – making it doubly dangerous for everyone! The tightness of the corridors and the reduced line of sight makes it much different experience and you need to change your tactics to survive…

PAX 2012

So I attended PAX Prime 2012 this year for my 2nd year now, and had a great time. It was a little bit of sensory overload. I ended up taking a lot of pictures, and (most of the better ones) are from my friend John who attended with me.


Warhammer 40k 6th edition – first game

July 1, 2012 Posted by cranky

I played my first game of Warhammer 40k 6th Edition with my friends John and Craig on July 1st. I’m sure we got a few rules wrong, and with a lot of distractions in the house it wasn’t conducive to a deep dive of the rules, but it was a good experience and we learned a lot. My friend Craig snapped a few pictures during the session. John brought his Raven Guard Marines with Grey Knights allies, and I played my Hive Fleet Damocles Tyranid army. We did 2000 points, and the idea was to pick several different units that highlighted what we felt (from trolling all the rumor boards) to be rules that either changed or would highlight specific units. We weren’t disappointed. In the end the Marine force won by a significant margin. Some pictures below and some of the story.


Tyranid Zoanthropes

May 22, 2011 Posted by cranky

Got my Zoanthropes done. I have a total of 6 of these dudes now. I find them great on a lot of levels, if only for pure frustration / aggravation of my opponent! That 3+ warp field save is pretty hard to get through. They pack a very good punch and I find them in every bug list I’ve played to-date. These guys are slightly converted. I built up the base to have rubble and/or rocks, as I wasn’t a huge fan of him “surfing a bug tail”. The first set of 3 that I made was the original pewter models. (more…)
