Tunnel Fight

Warhammer 40,000 - This year for my Birthday I decided to run a tunnel fight game. I've had the Bug Hunt Corridors from Fantasy Arc for quite some time now and never get around to finishing my set because we don't play Zone Mortalis style games enough. I will eventually finish what I've got so I can justify picking up some of the specialty rooms and additional style of doors.

Storm of Iron ... Iron Warriors

Storm of Iron ... Iron Warriors

Warhammer 40,000 – Raptors can be devastating when they can hit the right targets. Dropping in via deepstrike or just flying forward to get a jump on the enemy they're incredibly useful. Possessed marines don't have the randomness of old but a potential 3 attacks each at strength 5 is pretty good, especially with a 7" move.

Iron Without ... Iron Warriors

Iron Without ... Iron Warriors

Warhammer 40,000 – Vehicles are so much better in 8th edition. The Landraider is the king of them all. A great save and giant guns make this monster a pain to get off the table. Troop Transports can harass the enemy after getting their cargo where it needs to be. Heavy support tanks like the Vindicator can be difficult to take out as they fire on the enemies equipped to take it out. The days of an all infantry force are at an end.

Iron Within ... Iron Warriors

Iron Within ... Iron Warriors

Warhammer 40,000 – Iron Warriors used to be something to fear back in the days of the old force organization chart having extra heavy slots meant a bunch of Obliterators coming down and wrecking face. In 8th edition they have the most lackluster of Legion Traits but one of the best relics. Regardless of how strong they are the color scheme is striking and makes for a good looking force.

A shot in the dark ... Astra Militarum

 A shot in the dark ... Astra Militarum

Warhammer 40,000 – Snipers on paper seem like a great investment. Being able to pick out characters and cause mortal wounds should be amazing. In practice it's pretty hit or miss. I run Space Marine Scouts often and on a good day they roll a ton of 6's and cause my opponent a ton of grief. But most times they do a wound or two and then draw fire until they disappear.

Bloodletters Basic Paint

Bloodletters Basic Paint

Warhammer 40,000 – Many of my clients just need paint on models. Especially baseline troopers that don't spend a ton of time on the table (although that could be said for most things this editon, everything dies so fast...). For that I offer my basic paint service, it's inexpensive and meets the requirements of most events. Three colors, wash and basing.

Six Legged Freaks ... Hivefleet Leviathan

Six Legged Freaks ... Hivefleet Leviathan

Warhammer 40,000 – Genstealers wreck face. There's no two ways about it if you get charged by a unit of them they are going to put a hurt on whatever they charged. There's a reason I've always loved them and can't wait to get back to work on my Genestealer Cult (I'll probably not touch them again until a codex comes out, honestly). In the meantime I've been painting more to go along with the rest of my clients Hivefleet Leviathan horde.

The Great Devourer Returns ... Hivefleet Leviathan

The Great Devourer Returns ... Hivefleet Leviathan

Warhammer 40,000 – I remember when I got back into 40K back in third edition. A small store in Almont, MI, Carmalot Computers and Hobbies,  ran a tournament every Saturday. It was always 1500 points, $5 to enter and went three rounds. The winner got store credit and they always had a decent turn out. Back then going from 3.5 to 4th edition Tyranids ran the show. At the time I was running Chaos Space Marines and I always dreaded facing off against bugs. Sadly that store has been out of business for about as long as Tyranids have been not so great.

Getting Crazy or Going Sane? Lobotomy The Board Game

Getting Crazy or Going Sane? Lobotomy The Board Game

Board Games – Ever feel trapped, alone or like everyone thinks your crazy? Are you institutionalized? Do you want to break free? If these statements apply to you you should check out this game from Titan Forge. You play as a vaguely familiar patient in an Insane Asylum where things aren't what they seem.

The Others: Seven Sins – Lust

The Others: Seven Sins – Lust

Board Games – The sins keep coming as I work my way through the expansions for The Others: Seven Sins. This time around is Lust. When I first saw this models I was a little confused as there's nothing sexy about them. The typical super sexy girl/guy treatment doesn't exist which through me for a loop initially.

Dark Skies ... Black Legion Troops

Dark Skies ... Black Legion Troops

Warhammer 40,000 – Sometimes it feels like an army is never finished, which for me is great because it keeps my painting queue stocked and my brushes busy. As Chaos players learn the ends and outs of their new codex many units that weren't optimal choices before are seeing more play on the tabletop, especially standard Chaos Marine Squads. More durable that cultists and able to hold their ground these traitorous bad boys can be a force to be reckoned with.
