Shards of Anaris - Week 10

Today in our campaign I had a small 1000pt scrum with Leonard's Orks.

Orks ended up with the deployment edge, with three objectives towards their end, two on mine and one in the middle.  I have some teleporting terminators that can hopefully disrupt his back lines when they arrive.  Rhino and rocks help provide line of sight blocking and cover from the big scary shooting threats, the shokk attack gun and looted wagon.

Shards of Anaris: Week 9 - Jungle Fever

I faced off against Nathan's Necrons to try to recover a shard (1500pts), on a run-down Necron tomb world overrun by jungle, lovely terrain courtesy of Scott (our Space Wolf player this campaign).

New White Dwarf review!

I've been seeing some other reviews and posts about the new White Dwarf in its new format.  To be honest, I don't see what the big deal is about the new White Dwarf.  
Literally, as the promise - again - of early copies for subscribers falls flat.

"Subscribers will receive their White Dwarf on or before it's release day."

Like back then.
And then.
Again, I fell for the promise of paying GW up front for getting copies sent to me early, for a fresh take on the magazine.  GW's overall been doing things pretty well lately, surely it will work out this time?
 I did happen to be in the next town over where our official GW store is, and saw that they managed to get copies there for people to buy off of the shelves by the official release date.  So they do know how to get it to a particular location by a particular date, just not to me.  Is Tom Kirby in charge of White Dwarf customer distribution or something?

Vraks: Prelude

Ever since Scott had started his Death Korps of Krieg army, we had planned to play through the Siege of Vraks campaign.  Now we are going to get started!  The renegades hunker down in their defenses awaiting the oncoming Death Korps, for the first mission from IA: 5.

Iron Within, Iron Without

I had always liked the idea of the Iron Warriors.  Siege warfare, trenches, ruthless application of logistics and firepower to achieve their goals.  I never got around to making them before, as I didn't really picture them as the standard Chaos Marine kits, even with the upgrade set GW released 3rd edition.  The extra ornamentation, horns and such always seemed to fit armies like Black Legion and the Word Bearers well, while the cult legions had their own aesthetics.  But it didn't fit Iron Warriors well to me.  Neither did regular marine kits, focused on Mk VI and VII armor with eagles and purity seals featured prominently.  So I waited.

Shards of Anaris - campaign week six

Another week of mayhem and merriment hunting down the Shards of Anaris!

sonofsonsoftaurus is getting the knack for themed tables, developing a battle scene with several chaotic shrines.  My Endless Ones faced off against his Ultramarines to recover bits of information that would help lead us to additional pieces of the god-weapon, Anaris.
