Lawyer up!

For those of you who didn't hear yet about the legal suit that is currently happening between Chapterhouse Studios and Games Workshop I wanted to post a little ditty here about my thoughts regarding this whole affair.  For those of you who do know about it and have an opinion, post some comments in the comment field.

Gamers block.

lately, I have been feeling very blocked creatively. For some reason I have had no impetus do do anything modeling or painting related. Most of my hobby time has been dedicated towards other pursuits like tearing apart the dark eldar codex and planning for my upcoming large tournament: feast of blades.

New Eldar Aspect Warrior (FW)

As some of us have heard, or know, Forge-world is working on an Eldar Imperial Armor.  It has really been a long time coming.  It seriously feels like the boys over at forge-world haven't done any thing outside of Orks and Imperials for ages.

Grey Knights

Im really excited about the release of the new Grey Knight Codex next year (March-May). I have always thought that GK were one of the coolest armies in 40k, but there were two things holding me back.

Blood Angels new list: Chaplains a-go-go

  In my theory hammer post a few days back I mentioned a new unit that I was trying out that was one of those "Super friends," type things.   I have played it in a couple of games and the squad hits like a ton of bricks.
  Anyhow, I was asked in that same post to put up the entire army list that accompanies that particular squad.  Well, ask and ye shall receive!

NEW 40k Movie announced (Not Ultramarine)


Late last night Games Workshop responded to the reception of its first foray into the realm of film making.

Tuesday, November 30


I was thinking, last night on one of my long drives that I do from week to week about Theory hammer. Mostly I was thinking about how cool it is that we have one of the few hobbies that you can actually see how your theories pan out in practice.

Webway Portals = Defensive?

In one of the batrep comment areas we have been talking about the proper application of Web way portals. Eventually this got me thinking...

Batrep: Wolves vs. Dark Eldar.

Hi, Cruor Vault here with a guest Batrep for the Inferno…
Like many longtime Warhammer players I’ve been itching for a new Dark Eldar book. I have always wanted to play an army of evil sadomasochistic space elves, but have been hampered by the difficult legacy rules from 3rd edition and the truly terrible sculpts from the 90s. Now that all that has been fixed with the wonderful new codex and truly awe inspiring new model range I set out to play test my way to galactic domination!

DE vs. BA Bat rep

The other night I had the pleasure of playing against my friend and his brand new Dark Eldar list... Normally I would do a video bat-rep, but I forgot my Flip camcorder (booo!) and a lot of his stuff wasn't painted so you'll have to deal with words.

Wargamer= Crybaby?

As many of you already know the Storm Raven model was leaked today (or at least were pretty sure it was.) Im not going to go into the details of the leak but it can be found on some of my bloglist links to the side.

Dark Eldar Halloween story

This is actually a post I made on BoLS back in 2008. But since it was about Dark Eldar I thought it was fitting to repost it.

RAS+DEV= Spam and cheese sandwich?

So I decided to write up a new list. Let me know what you think. (2000 pt Blood Angels)

gold, gold or GOLD? Part 2: the discussion

Let me tell you of one of the dumbest (yet funniest) discussions I have ever had about warhammer...

Tuesday, October 19

Gold, Gold or GOLD!?

So, Im having a hard time deciding which way to go with my Dante conversion... I could go the way I went with Sanguinor and do a NMM piece, which would be a bit of fun because I know a lot more about NMM now that I have done that Sanguinor.

Modelling: 4 winged Dante WIP

For those of you who have actually stopped looking at the models its time to go talk about my most recent modeling project: Dante with 4 wings.....Ok, Ill let you look at the other models for a second before proceeding. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Ok, ready? good.

So I always thought that Dante, being chapter master and all, should have more than just some lame regular jump pack with the BA symbol on it. When I saw how cool Sanguinor and Astorath looked I could totally see Dante being like "I like those wings, I think Ill take them." Astorath would whine a bit and Sanguinor would be all quiet but in the end they would give up their wings to Dante: Captain of Awesome.

Well, it took me two weeks after ordering Sanguinor at my FLGS to finally get him (A subject that will be covered in another post). but now I have all the pieces together to build my angelic frankenstein!

- Sanguinary Guard: Torso, Legs, Helm, Shoulder pads, axe arm, with the long handle and axe head cut off.
- Death Company: Infernus pistol arm.
- Astorath: Axe, Wings
- Sanguinor: Single engine jump pack, Wings

I took his axe arm and cut off the axe head along with the long handle and put Astoraths axe in its place. I also Pinned The Sanguinor wings (and strengthened the bond with Green Stuff) directly onto his back. The Astorath wings will be pinned and GS to the Sanguinor backpack (Update coming). And I will take off the base that he is on when the back pack and Dante are painted.

Without further ado here are a few pics (WIP)

Painting: NMM Sanguinor

So, my painting may not be as awesome as this guy, but I like to start off painting updates and such with a real artist...

Anyhow, for those of you who haven't seen my blog on BoLS lounge I have been working on my Blood Angels for quite a while now and have recently been working on my centerpiece:

Not being "That guy,"

So, I recently wrote an article for BoLS and in it I talked about "that guy." Today I wanted to go a little more into the idea of what "that guy," is like.
