Hey, The Lights Are Still on!


So the blog still exists!

Its been a while but I thought I'd actually use the blog again, so in between writing my thesis on "Whats App Killed The Blog" I'll throw the odd post up here.

Mostly it'll be to track the 40K Campaign we've just kicked off but who knows, maybe I'll feel inspired to blog some more things too!

Return to Vogen

So some of us decided a 40K campaign would be a good idea as its been a while and whilst I had grand ideas of writing a system spanning epic (one day, one day) an old adage came back to me - Keep It Simple.
So the Vogen campaign from White Dwarf number, err, really old, came back to me.
I really enjoyed planning this and its largely what brought us together as a group in the first place!
I mean, it IS touching, not touching in the group.....

I found the rules online have dusted them off and fitted them to the current edition. I also plan to make a dedicated page to upload the rules, maps, armies, anything relevant too as well. Soon.

To kick off I present the map following the opening moves:

This is a temporary map until I find a why to print A3....

The campaign players:

Simon- Space Wolves
Elliot - Tau
Me - Orks
Matt - Chaos (first Campaign)
Chris - Tyranids (didn't see that coming!

After some cagey territory grabs the first conflict is between me and Elliot.
May the best Ork win!

Hobby Round up Week 48

Hello everyone!

Lets start this week with a celebration. Last week Dave took part in an Early War Flames of War Tournament ar Warfare in Reading UK and came 2nd! Well done to Dave.

Simon has been busy painting a new edition to his Masons Guild Ball team, here we have Chisel

And finally this week, whilst waiting for the postman to deliver his new Guild Ball player, Chris has made a start on his city fight board. This is on the reverse of his Guild Ball pitch.

Here you can see a mock up of how it may look when it is in use.
