Happy 40K weekend everyone!! I imagine there is going to be a flood of 40K content everywhere for the immediate future, so go out and enjoy some positivity around GW for a change πŸ™‚

The Farmers are finally up for pre-order after what seems like an age waiting for them. Go check them out at our friends Leodis Games, the price is super surprising for what you are getting. So go grab a bargain..

Attended a Trailblazer event for Wild West Exodus locally, didn’t actually get a demo as was super busy..but had a great chat with the boys who turned up and got a free mini πŸ™‚

Well back after a bit of break and writers block, not that I write too much but hopefully I can get back into the groove…

So we are hurtling towards new 40K release and I have to say, I can’t remember a more positive outcome from the internet in any of the releases I can remember.

Have GW finally hit on a winning formula to keep everyone happy? Probably not but they still make some dam sexy models.

I recently got my hands on an Imperial Knight and I have to say it has to be one of my favourite kits to put together an absolute joy!

Speaking of GW, we have all been recently been playing around with Shadow wars and it is proving addictive. Small quick brutal games (getting 3 games in an evening including set up and book-keeping) are always great but getting to use the models from all those failed armies has to be a huge win as well πŸ˜‰

Mythos

Mythos is here and boy are the models sexy! (Review coming soon) For those that missed out on the kickstarter the guys have gone to retail and have a pre-order up on their website https://paranoid-miniatures.myshopify.com/ so you everyone can get there shiny on πŸ˜‰

No games this week, been pretty uneventful time recently

Hobby This Week

Trundling on with my Death Guard and managed to get over 1000 points painted which is impressive for me. Thinking of continuing with them for the time being but hopefully I don’t hit a wall with them as really enjoying painting them.

So any news this week? nothing springs to mind really…..well except new 40K and it’s not like the internet will be going crazy bonkers for that right?

So far I am liking what I am seeing, obviously with this drip feed of news we are going to see many panics along the way but hopefully the full rules will drop soon (June maybe).

On first look we are going to be seeing a mix of AoS and 40K rules which is only a good thing as I love the AoS rules and from the look of things the bloat is going as well. 5 books on release to cover on the major allegiances? Plus free rules and I think everyone is going to be pretty happy.

This leads onto what I am planning for 40K my Eldar are sold to make way for a 30K Death Guard army and all the shiny that brings (thankfully with the plastic boxes it now brings it just into my price range). But this also offers my a lot of scope into 40K I can just keep them as-is and use as space marines with no issue. However the plan is to keep them as Death Guard (especially with the new models) but not nurgle up the troops keeping them as they will look for 30K. I will be adding in Nurgle characters for 40K though and particular troop choices 30k/40k that I can’t really ‘count-as’ across the range I will pick up more than likely. Say things like the Helldrake cool model but nothing in 30K matches so I may get one of them.

Now the fluff behind this is that only characters gain the blessing of Nurgle to become fat/mutant while rank and file marines are in a way similar to 1k sons, they are locked into place as they appeared at the time of the Heresy.

No games this week, been pretty mental..

So couple of cool pieces of news this week, the Relic Knights KS is funded with oodles of free shit added to it!! Like 100s of dollars worth of stuff.

Next we have news that the UK finally has a distributor for CMON again which means Dark Age is going to have a supply line again. This is amazing news like super duper news. Especially with the new boxes instead of blister boxes that have been shown off for Forsaken and soon to see for other factions. The future is looking dark πŸ˜€

We also got to see the Farmers Guild in the wild which was pretty cool. The pre-built models I will admit is still a hang up of mine and don’t get me started on the brown they picked I hope that isn’t the final colour πŸ™‚ The models themselves look pretty good although the big guy is an odd pose, but that could well be camera angles! Be interesting to see how they play and don’t forget you have a chance to win a team before any else with WAAC –Β waac-ing the crops

Finally Dwarves, Flying Dwarves, Flying Steampunk Dwarves.. Well these are certainly different compared to what has come before not just in WFB but in AoS in general. Very different and very cool!! The airship looks like it could be a bugger to transport but pretty cool still, while the units are nice but it is the jump pack dwarves that have me excited they look amazing!

Question is how bigger a drop are they going to be? from what I have seen it looks like 2/3 airship types, 3 maybe 4 units and some characters so about on par with the Fyreslayers and the Slyvaneth. Suppose the question is when will we see the dispossessed dwarves or are they just classic dwarves now really? And is it all about the mini-factions now that are done in 1 or 2 drops, and maybe a round-up book in 12 months or so. Like the Stormcast that in theory you could say have had 3 sub factions combined and more to come I am sure as they open more of the chambers.

Mat KS

Dont forget to back the small guy with our sponsor doing his Mat KS πŸ™‚

No games this week, such is life though hopefully a couple lined up next week.

Apologies for the lack of posts this week, the application I use for my photos is down at the moment. So need to wait for that to start-up again. Unless you want me to talk to you all in some ramblings……no one wants that right?

First shout out again to our sponsors that are rocking a new KS for gaming mats. They are great quality at a great price πŸ™‚

Speaking of KS I have decided to go in a little deeper on the Relic knights one so some shiny minis are coming my way soon-ish-hopefully…

I suppose I can’t leave this week without a mention to the sad news Pressgangers are no more! Having got into the tournament scene via WM/H and the help of Mr Peyton and Millington it seems a shame that PP have pulled the plug rather than restructure.

I understand the reasons, the lawsuit against WotC from MTG judges plus they current system becoming unwieldy. But a lot of the bigger event may struggle for the motivation to run now. No-one shows of shiny games for the money or the reward but surely these guys deserve the acknowledgement for doing so much. Sad times!!

Games This Week

Couple more Relic Knight demos and shockingly a game of AoS!! I know I was shocked as well, I ended up coming out winner against Death army using my Stormcasts with helpful Treelord because who doesn’t like angry trees?

Hobby This Week

Continuing the AoS kick I have been painting up some of my Stormcasts because well I have the taste now πŸ™‚

Another week gone as we trundled towardsΒ the inevitable conclusion we need more SHINY!

Lots seem to be happening in the hobby recent with lots of exciting and tempting things have been cropping up.

Relic Knights is hitting the KS trail again for their version 2 rules and resculpt, having only just dipped into the game I am interested to see how it goes. Although the starter set does look pretty cool..

GW continue with some amazing minis and I am sure a lot of people are eager to see where 40K is going very interesting times there.

Mythos always worth a nod as they close in on the release of models and the game is still shaping up to be a great system.

PP well that is a faction out of the nowhere, the Grymkin are certainly unique for the IK world but obviously there is that massive apparent nod towards a certain malifaux faction. A lot of people seem to be ‘annoyed’ by this but it is all based around fairy tales anyway. I for one welcome our new lords although some of the models are a bit swing and a miss.

Leodis

Shout out to our sponsors Leodis Games we are being all busy and generous!! First up they are giving away either an Alt Nicodem or Alt Bishop! when you spend some cash-monies on the store and considering how much these models can go for on the open market spending Β£10 on shiny for a chance to win is vvvvvvvvvvvery nice

They have also started a nice T-Shirt range which is looking pretty cool if I do say so myself. You can check them out hereΒ Leodis-apparel.

Games This Week

Not many games recently but I have been demoing Relic Knights to a fair number of people and seems to going well. Hopefully the new KS doesnt destroy that with super long wait times like the first KS did.

Hobby This Week

Painting many things at the moment, I have a couple of Gaslands cars I have meant to get sorted finally getting some love. While the Stormcasts are also getting some love as well as its been a while.

I have also been making tentacles everywhere for the Cryx army I seem to have got back into. Thank goodness for the Green Stuff World tool for making them πŸ™‚
