Eldar Rumours = Excited!

This week across (I imagine) a few places on the magic internet which we all know and love there have been rumours, gossip, chit-chat.

Craftworld Eldar my friends. Not Space Marines, not Orks being chopped up and glued back together just super nice, super cool doom-ridden Craftworlders!

Click on for a break down of some words, a couple of pictures and a smattering of fond memories of my previous Eldar back in 2nd Edition.

Dreadfleet Preview Video

Here's how you can cheaply, easily and effectively do Ork boys with Shootas for half that price.

1,750 Tournament Report

It's been all quiet on the blog front for two or three weeks due to two things really - a) holiday: I got out of London for a week and enjoyed a decent break from work and city life and b) tournament prep: figuring out a 1,750 point army, getting things painted etc. Here's a summary of the latter...
