I’ve been trying to fight the urge but I’m starting to get excited by the thought of trying out 8th edition 40k. Being a die hard fantasy fan this is a weird feeling. I’m not a total 40k noob. I played half a dozen games of 7th edition but really didn’t like it. This was… Read More Something strange is happening

I would happily rack up my miniatures several times a week but sadly real life gets in the way. However I can log on quite easily to the laptop and get… Read More Online gaming
Early last year I had my first foray into the realm of 40k. In normal style (after 2 practice/learn the rules games) I jumped in feet first and entered the club competition.
