Warhammer World: A Brief Introduction

Anyone who's been around our hobby for more than a week or two will have heard of Warhammer World in Nottingham. Due to the ever growing international nature of the 40K community there's a relatively small percentage of us will actually ever make the pilgrimage.

I've been into all things Warhammer for half my life or so and have never made it there, until a couple of weekends ago when we went for Throne of Skulls.

We were like kids in a sweet shop (candy store for you Yanks).

It's My Birthday And I'll Buy (A Titan) If I Want To!

Hi readers of the Blogosphere!

Today I'm 30. Thirty. Three Oh. Damn.

Admittedly I feel no different but for the few cards that came and the VERY cool clockwork UFO my girlfriend bought me.

I thought I'd write a quick post a a bit of a preview of things to come on the blog over coming weeks/months with a little shopping I did at Warhammer World to console myself.

Throne of Skulls: Game 5 - The Most Awesome Game EVER

So here we go, into the hallowed realms of the fifth and final game of the weekend.

So far I've won one, drawn two and lost one. I really wanted to win to round off things with the positives (my two pick up wins didn't count unfortunately).

So off to the last table I headed to be met by...Tyranids!! Again. At least it wasn't terminators again!

This game turned out to be EPIC. I'll try and do it justice over the coming paragraphs!

First a War Pigeon, Now an Ugly Duckling

Well, if you've been living underneath an internet rock over the last 24 - 48 hours you might not have heard much about the 'upcoming' flyer release: Apparently the two Necron options, 3 (in one kit?) Ork options and the Space Marine Stormtalon shown.

I'm going to keep this brief. If the above drawing actually looks like the model (that is possibly out on June 2nd) I really don't like it. What's with the lack of wings? I get the VTOL thing, but surely it still needs...wings??


On the other hand the supersonic flying around the board and still being able to shoot will be nice. If it follows in the vein of the Forgeworld releases the Blood Angels probably won't get it anyway. If they do it'd fit in really nicely with the flying theme of the rest of my force.

Bring on the conversion!

Throne of Skulls: Game 4 Pictures and Summary

A little later than planned as I decided to wait for the blog to be back up on the BoLS blog roll after they rebuilt it this week.

Following on from my previous post covering games 1, 2 and 3 here comes Saturday evening and game 4. Read on for the battle summaries and photo's...

Throne of Skulls: Games 1-3 Pictures and Summary

Hi All,

It's been a quiet couple of weeks since my last post. My few spare hours have been spent furiously batch painting the Marines which has been...tiresome.

It was all worth while though, the army, while not finished, looked decent enough. So on Friday morning we jumped on the train to Nottingham to my first ever visit to Warhammer World.
