Horus Heresy Tournament

June 7, 2016 Posted by cranky

I’ve been building and painting my 30k Mechanicum army since December 2015, and I got everything done that I needed to for a 2500 pt force. Back in April or so, a local gaming group here in the PNW set up a 30k tournament, and while I was still assembling and painting, I signed up knowing I wanted to play and it was a good motivator for me to get my force done and table-ready. I have to say it came right down to the weekend before getting everything finished and sealed and packed up into my fantastic new KR Multicase Backpack 4. I took a lot of pictures of the 2000 point friendly tournament, and I wanted to share them with you. I had so much fun, can’t wait to do this again in August with a 2500 point list!


40k Battle Report: Imperial Fists vs. Death Guard CSM

February 28, 2016 Posted by cranky

Had a chance to get a 40k game in this last week against a great guy and opponent at the local game store Heroic Knight Games, down in Issaquah. I haven’t played 40k in a while and got inspired to as I’m building up my 30k Mechanicum army,so I figured I better get more up to speed on 7th Ed. rules if I’m going to play some Horus Heresy action! So I went down and met my sparring partner and we got a game in! Check out short form notes of our game and some pics we took. Must play again soon!

Battle Report – Siege of Thrax, Episode 3

December 31, 2013 Posted by cranky

Chaos Nurgle Lord Craxus the Foul and the brutal Ork Warlord Garm Skullcrusha have a stand-off and epic confrontation in the middle for the push towards the heart of Thraxan capitol. The orks, seeing a string of victories pile up and momentum for a Waagh of their own, are beginning to interfere with the plans laid out by the Forces of Ruin. Lord Craxus begins to become concerned that the Ork forces are pushing too fast into the loyalist lines, creating an over-extension threat towards the campaign as well as threatening the Sleeping Daemon’s successful rite of wakening. The two warlords agree to parlay in the middle of the campaign to sort out their differences and realign the Orks to the larger goals of the campaign. Are the forces of Chaos successful in bringing the Ork forces to heel, or do the Orks gain more fury in their rampage towards the final destination of the Thraxian capitol?
