After playing my first game of 40k, I thought i’d post a few thoughts on my impressions. The first thing that comes to mind are how simple the rules are compared to the last Edition.

He knows it’s my first game so said he will not bring one of his nastier lists (which would… Read More 40k First Game incoming
With February over and Azazel having posted his wrap up of the neglected model’s completed, I thought I’d better post mine. This month it has very much been wood elf central, concentrating on my mainly 4th edition models all hailing from the early 90’s. This involved 2 sets of command models, 14 Eternal Guard and… Read More Hobby Update – Neglected Model Feb round-up
