I love it when you get home to surprise parcels. A couple of months ago I mailed some of my bits box to one of the guys off the eighth edition for life forum and as a thank you he sent me this little beauty. It’s an Avatars of War model and he even painted it in… Read More A letter froooooom America
With my first competition game on Friday, I realised I needed to pull my finger out and ensure my entry was fully painted to garner the bonus points for each game. So I present 10 Ungor Raiders. I’ll try and fully finish them before Friday as there are some details I want to do on… Read More Hobby Update – Ungor Raiders
In the final post of this series, i’ll take a look at the final competitor in Group A, Luke C and his Dark Elves. Luke has been using Dark Elves for a number of years and I know often attends the Hockley tournament with Dan so will be a tough player to beat. I actually… Read More The Dark Tide

I’ve only ever played Alistair at Kings of War and he showed a frightening ability to learn from previous games and adapt his list and tactics. As such, although… Read More The Green Machine

After the… Read More SELWG 2017 Warhammer Competition Kicks Off!
This week I had lined up a game against Paul. He hadn’t played 8th Edition for a few years now but he was one of the club members who had signed up to the competition and so wanted to re-familiarise himself with the rules. I jumped at the chance to have a game and not… Read More WHFB – Beastmen vs Skaven
