Beyond the Gates of Antares - Herts Shard Demo Game

So tonight I had the opportunity to run a Demo game of Gates at Watford Wargames Club.

Rather than being somewhat sensible and making 2 lists (I hate list making) I grabbed what looked like the most interest units which would give a good overview of the rules.

Cookie Monster is my opponent.

Warhammer 40k: Crimson Sons Warband

The Crimson Sons are a warband of Chaos Space Marines dedicated to the Chaos God Tzeentch that was originally formed by members of the Thousand Sons Traitor Legion. 
The Crimson Sons warband was exiled by its Primarch Magnus the Red for aiding in the casting of the disastrous sorcerous ritual known as the Rubric of Ahriman. 
Despite this exile, the warband paid tribute to the Crimson King, their Primarch Magnus the Red, with their name and also by colouring their Power Armour a deep red.

Wow it's been awhile eh? 

Have I been busy?

 Nope, I just had a complete lack of hobby mojo and the bits I have finished being a smattering of Renegade Guardsmen.

Still yesterday I did have a hobby surge when I fancied trying out a new basing style I spotted on Miniwargaming Youtube channel... Cork.

Now I fecking hate basing, hate it and of late I have gone for resin bases to negate the problem but adds extra expence and added time waiting for them to be delivered unless you have a stock of them.

So I needed something to base and a quick rummage in my ''One day I'll paint these'' draw and I turned up 5 Thousand Son Marines from the end of the RT days and early 2nd Ed 40k.

Boom Town Metals - 15mm Warp Renegades Released.

Welcome boys and girls, just a wee post to inform you all that Boom Town Metals have released a range of 15mm Warp Renegades which is inspired by the classic RT Chaos feel.

I have too say these are fun little sculpts and I can't wait to get a set or 2 in my grubby hands.

You may remember that they also done the Cyberpunk Orcs that I painted up a few years ago back when the company was know as a Study in Green.

Oldhammer meets Kings of War - Twilight Kin Pt.3

Welcome deviants of the Lead Realm to your favourite Den of Vice and Dice.

It's been a few weeks since my last Blog post and that's just due to the weather getting and I use the scientific term here ''Fecking Cold'' and my hands not wanting to do what they'll told.

But I have managed to get a couple of games of 40k in with my Traitor Guard and painted a few more bits for my Twilight Kin.

I don't know about you feckers but I enjoy a Army shot when people are doing WIP Blogs just to show you how things are coming along so today's post is just that.

Beyond the Gates of Antares - Herts Shard Meet Up No.3

Last night, 4 of us (Myself, Simon, Martin & Neil) from the Beyond the Gates of Antares - Herts Shard got together for a large 2v2 game. 

Allied Boromites and Concord Vs the Axis.. ahem sorry AI. 

Each Building was a objective you had to take and hold. 5 buildings spread across a 12by4 table forming the Ruins of Jungla del arco iris.

No write up just a collection of random pictures from the game.

And for those interested in ended in a draw due to running out of time.

Welcome boys and girls to the Den of Vice and Dice. mind your footing  though as someone forgot to put away the whips and chains.

Oldhammer meets Kings of War - Twilight Kin Pt.1

Well what do we have here then?

A merging of interests I guess, as you may well know I love both WhFB3 era Dark Elves and Kings of War.

So why not combine them?

Now in KoW Evil Elves are known as Twilight Kin and in current lore (Subject to change at somepoint) are aligned with the Abyss.

So Demons and Evil Elves, whats not too love?

Now I already had some Dark Elves painted from a few years ago in a 2 tone paint scheme that I liked at the time but my paintings improved from then so needed repainting.
