40k 8th Edition – Movement and Psychic Phases

Yesterday we had movement and today we have psychic. Let’s check out the information from yesterday first.

As we already know, each model has its own movement characteristic. I’m very much looking forward to seeing what gets what and they’ve specifically mentioned flyers here in terms of bombers and well, non-bombers, having different moving speeds and options. Good but much more likely to be important is the movement of infantry, et al. We still don’t know the impact of cover on shooting or how it will alter movement so lots of information still to come here.

Running has been combined into the shooting phase which makes a lot of sense from a streamlining point of view and was something we’d often see players check with each other to save on time with anyway (though it would have flow on effects throughout the rest of the movement phase so wasn’t always agreed to).

40k 8th Edition – New Edition, New Rules… New Culture?

Games Workshop have announced the impending release of the 8th Edition of their 40k games system.

Any new release from GW is sure to cause a major splash in the tabletop gaming community, and while debates about the rules and what the few details already announced could mean, what I found most interesting is that there are indications this release could herald a whole new culture at GW, and a remarkable change in how they interact with their fans and customers.

Maybe I am just being optimistic, but read on and see what you think.

Tale of Two Painters – “Week Three”

Yup you guessed it, Vinsanity didn’t paint anything again this week. It’s like he’s Russian or something… I only got two models mostly done this week – Helynna and eEyriss though I still need to shade and highlight the blue. I ran out of offwhite paint so the base of eEyriss is not completed either (was thinking similar to my Menoth bases, off white cobblestone like appearance) but will complete those and add them to next week’s post. I have a Manticore about 80% completed, just did not finish the highlighting of the grey so didn’t post him. Working on another Manticore, a flock of Griffons and some solos to run a two pair of Helynna and eVyros (I believe I have a fully painted Kaelyssa list now).

Tale of (Two) Painters – Week “Two”

I’ve given Vinsanity an extra three weeks and he still hasn’t finished anything. So you get pictures of pink and nothing more!

I completed my Sentinels and Rahn these past couple of weeks though you may notice one Sentinel is missing – only got nine arms unfortunately so part is on order.

Still need to finish the bases with flock and finish the power line / gem work on the normal models (as I say this I just realised I missed the fur on the CA…damnit) but otherwise the unit is ready to go! Full listing of models here.

Battle Report – Scyrah vs Legion (65 points)

So a month ago went to a local club Siege of the Hills for the first time where they are wrapping up a Journeyman League (hence the weird points total). Will hopefully be going many times again!

The scenario was a simple one – no Killbox and each player had a 30 hit box ARM 20 objective (no special rules) which if destroyed, won the game. Relatively easy thing to kill but it was placed very far back in both deployments so hard to get to. Anyway, took a Helynna list and played against pThags – hopefully remembered the lists correctly below.

Tale of (Two) Painters – Week “One”

tail

Hey all! Week One was of course delayed *glares at Vinsanity* but we are here with our first instalment! Will keep progress tracked in the original post, though I’m not sure why the colours aren’t working on all of the breakthroughs. Much annoyance.

Pictures below the break.

Tale of (Two) Painters

Hey everyone!

Yes a 3++ post. Expect another soon as well *gasp*.

So in an effort to encourage myself to blog more and get the site back up and running, Vinsanity and I are doing a painting challenge with the primary focus being on two armies each for Warmachine / Hordes. If anyone else would like to jump on board, please be my guest and just email me with what you’ll be doing and then with the weekly updates. I’ll keep track of everything with a post on Tuesday with pictures and everything. Much excitement I know.

With this in mind, the below is what we are looking to paint with the goal of a Warmachine / Hordes point per day. As things get painted we will cross them out :).
