Dire avengers

Been busy with Eldar again;

This time my first unit of Dire Avengers I have plans for a second unit and I am currently trying to decide if I should stick with the same scheme or reverse the colours. To make everything more noticeable it is a different unit.


Beared-itorial

Well a huge weekend this weekend. Not only is it Salute weekend (and I hope those that made it, enjoyed it). It was the weekend my daughter was born 2 years ago!! Yes 2 years ago, no idea how that happened.

However I would like to thank the other half for bringing into this world such a beautiful little girl, she aint a baby any more :( So happy birthday Cub I know you will have a ball with your presents :) Imperial Knight is OK for a 2yo right?

New Writers

Again second plug for writers :) I have found ‘willing’ volunteers for Infinity, Guild Ball, Dystopian Wars. So if there is a system you don’t think I cover well OR fancy flexing your writing arms please let me know :)

Malifaux

This week in my long road to playing as much gremlins as possible I have tried Mah Tucket. I didn’t fair to well, but then over any of the other crews I have dealt with it was odd not having the Df triggers I have got use to.

But Mah is pretty tough and the speed in which she can move around is pretty respectable. A possible threat range of 15″ just within her activation is pretty nice, the only problem is she can leave her crew far far behind and that is a problem.

I will certainly need to have a few more games with her, as she has proven trick to get down in my head over some of the other masters.

I am finding that after a game generally I would have liked to have played Somer and been out-activating the opposition, it is a powerful place to be.

GREMLINS

But now for the exciting part, Wyrd released their latest free magazine of Chronicles and well it was heavy with Gremlin artwork from Wave 2 models :)

New GW Site

Not going to say much, but it is sensible to at least mention it! Nice clean looking e-commerce site.

Lets face it that is what it is a shop front, no blog, no FAQ links. Will these things appear? who knows but for the moment GW and settled for buy stuff and use the rules as a suggestion only. I hope it isnt as the hobby is what keeps them going, keep chipping away at it and only bad things will happen :(

Its been a while since I have been tempted by another faction in PP universe but these guys; They have me tempted, very tempted indeed..

Paint/hobby Corner

For those that follow me on Twitter, you may know I have been struggling with my WoC finding the motivation to keep going with them (and with WFB). But I am trying to keep going and as such I have managed to paint the hellcannon in a week and I am moving onto Knights see if I can keep this ball rolling.

Time will tell I suppose! Also still waiting on Brewmaster

Also don’t forget to Visit the Outpost, our friendly Yorkshire-based (don’t hold that against them) gaming centre sponsors.


Objectives and Flags

Over at Anything Worth Doing they have shown off some great little DIY tokens for Steamroller. These are a most for anyone playing competitively or who use the scenarios just because :)

If you want to check them out AND download the handy pdfs, head on over;

Fireprism

Bit more Eldar painted recently in the shape of the strangest tank in 40K

I say this because the main gun is SO useful due to its 3 firing modes, it can deal with anything on the board which is unique in the specialists army that is Eldar.

Just a shame you have to be very careful about target prioritization.
