It's Been Oh So Quiet...

Hi There!

It's been about 5 months since I last posted here, so much has happened in that time it's difficult to know where to start.

OK let's skip right past the work commitments (I was away from home a lot) and move onto something more relevant.

Our trio of gamers is down to two, Steven and I (James). The limited armies and painted models we own has created some difficulties - no one wants to see the same two people pit the same two forces against each other time and again!

Good news! We have found ourselves a new location to play which has presented us with more people to play with (and record games).  As we are settling in to this new gaming group, it will be a few weeks before the videos really kick off!

Isn't it just typical that I sit down to type this, I am packing my bags to go abroad for 2 weeks!  

In the meantime, here are a couple of pictures of the Farseer on Jetbike model I will be working on. I love this model and it's a shame Games Workshop do not make one, the resin is a bit too brittle on this cast!

Vanguard Kitbashing

Ian here (the D3+1 Tau, Deathguard and Ultramarine player).

Obviously we'll be covering the new Space Marines release a lot in up coming videos and I've got some new models to play with. I picked up the new Vanguard box without any intention of using them for anything other than a collection of wonderful bits to pillage for other uses and I thought I'd show off some stuff I've done with it.

Here's something basic to start with. I used the Relic Blade and one of the Storm Shields from the box and did some surgery on the sergeant from the Space Marine Command Squad box to create a custom Chapter Master I plan to use sometime soonish (armed with the Burning Blade and the Shield Eternal).

As for the bodies of the Vanguard marines themselves I decided to turn them into Honour Guard. For those that don't know - the only official Honour Guard models for marines are the Ultramarine themed ones that come in the box with Calgar. If you want to field a lot of them (which is something else I want to try) you kind of have to fend for yourself. So here we have the Vanguards transformed into Honour Guard using some spare power wepaons and backpacks I had in my bits collection. The Company Champion is using a Thunder Hammer from the Vanguard box.

Randomized Armies! : Blood Angels vs Eldar 1000pts (video batrep)

When we are short on time, we try to squeeze in quicker 1000 point games.

 As a change of pace, we decided to write a 1000 point list for every army we collectively own!

First up, Ian drew Blood Angels and James drew Eldar (oops!). Both armies were James' so he had written both.
