Dustbusters: Adeptus Mechanicus vs Thousand Sons

10010 0100110 10010110-ight!
It's All-Skype Fight Night!

Polish up your King Tut headgear -  I, Stylus will be taking the Thousand Sons out for their inaugural battle!

And polish everything else you've got - I, Kraken, command the might of the Machine God and therefore need a lot of grease!

Hey there, pop-pickers! My Thousand Sons are going into a smash-tastic battle tonight, and I couldn't send them in without a leader...

Knightfall: Aeldari vs Renegade Knight

This lance ain't so bright
It's All-Skype Fight Night!

Yes, it's us again. Kraken vs Leofa (Hi!), and hot from the success of his Renegade Knight against the noble Salamanders, Leofa is bringing the big lug up against the elegant eldar. I mean Aeldaer. Aeildairy. You know, the Vowel People, them.

Some People Are Worth Melta For: Salamanders vs Renegade Knight

"Bringing a Knight to a 1,000pt game would be too reductive!"

"Nah - as the only target on the board, you'd kill it easy!"

Only one way to find out...

Everyone pile on the Traitor Knight!

This isn't what you think. I haven't been sucked into 40k. This is not the beginnings of a new army. You can all go about your business.

Plaguing Away From Home: Crimson Fists vs Death Guard

Infect Them With Our Blight!
It's All-Skype Fight Night!

Hot on the heels of our last battle report, I, Stylus, find myself back in the general's chair. This time, I'm trading in the nice, healthy green of the Orks for the verdant putrescence that is the Death Guard.

And in the bold corner, making his all-skype fight night battle report debut, iiiiiiiiiiit's LE-O-FAAAAA!  Hi [waves]  I'll be bringing my Wombles.

Nobody Expects The Orkquistion: Orks vs Inquisition

Our Chief Weapons are Surprise, Ruthless Efficiency and Fright!
It's All-Skype Fight Night!

I, Stylus, will continue our tour of 8th Edition Warhammer 40k with an army of mine that hasn't seen action since 1992 - the Orks! Some of the original models (with their original paint jobs) will feature, along with some of the most outrageous proxy models we have ever used. Waaaagh!

Brayherd Battletome

Always the neglected sibling of the chaos faction, if the absence of a battletome for the Brayherds gets your goat, then look no further than this splendid hobby creation:

An unofficial battletome by Hobbyhammer, this is easily as good as the real thing: fluff, battleplans, warscrolls, allegiance and artefacts, pitched battle and skirmish points - all of it laid out in the recognisable Age of Sigmar style.

(There is even a hobby section - check out page 33 for a contribution by our very own WoffBoot.)

Judging by their inclusion in General's Handbook 2017, we won't getting an official Brayherd book for a while, so this will do very nicely.

It's almost enough to make me want to paint up the remainder of my Brayherd models, after this battalion box somehow fell into my eBay basket...

Just fell in there, I tell you.

Keep your grouping tight
It's All-Skype Fight Night

40K is definitely flavour of the month right now. Here's a third battle report, fought in nearly as many days, and it's one for the power armour fans out there. Marine on marine action, hot hot hot!

Deep Cleanse: Space Marines vs Chaos

We remain in the 41st millennium for our next battle report: the humble Space Marines take on a mixed bag of Chaos!

Warhammer 40k battle report - Cleanse and Capture - Space Marines vs Chaos.

Gee, that's a lot of Smite!
It's an all-Skype Fight Night!

I, Stylus, am back in the 40k saddle. This time, borrowing from Kasfunatu's considerable collection to put a 1000pt Adeptus Astartes force against a mixed bag of Chaos Marine and Daemons. Death to the heretic!

X-Wing: Twofer

Cancellations! Of normal social events, anyway. Which meant Kas and I squeezed an extra game of X-wing into our week. 

With a very delayed write up!

And then, some weeks later, a second outing, replete with the new Wave 11 ships.

New toys!

Two reports for the price of one, then!

Electric Duel-a-Ghoul: Flesh-Eater Courts vs Disciples of Tzeentch

Sir Loin ate heartily from his venison stew, scooping the generous cuts of meat from their thick, warm gravy before sinking his teeth into the trencher with a satisfying crunch.

"Lord Gnaw," he acknowledged the king's emissary and proffered him a goblet of ruby-dark wine. "I hear of dark rumblings upon our northern frontier."

"Indeed," the courtier took the offering and drank deep. Lord Gnaw was a vast man, almost bent under the great weight of his shoulders, with his leathery cloak wrapped about him like wings. "The followers of the false gods are attempting to blot out the sky with their magics."

"Barbarians," Sir Loin opined, picking through his platter of sweetbreads and choosing the freshest pancreas.

"The King wishes us to ride forth without delay. There is no time to summon the yeomanry; take only your knights."

Sir Loin rose from his meal. "I have a dozen of my finest warriors at hand. Let us fetch them from their supper table and thence to battle. The quest will sharpen their appetite."

By my depleted leucocytes!

The lure of 40K is hard upon me. The itch! I must scratch!

Oh no, wait, it's just the symptoms of early onset Nurgle's Rot. Great.

Kraken here, along with Kasfunatu, battling via remote as we bring you a 40K matched play report. As a representative of the Greater Good, I shall be commanding the T'pau sept.

Behold! Two men in their forties playing an appropriate game!

Heh, I am still in my thirties for a little while longer.

Damn you, ageless Kasfunatu!

I am Kraken; age has not wearied me, nor the years condemned. Twelve of the buggers, I think, since last I ventured into these waters. Well, not really, it's basically Age of Sigmar with guns, and I venture out into those waters all the time. But I'm allowed to celebrate a little. All these 40K models I've painted, and nary a game in all this time.

So hurrah! Break out the bolters and burn yourselves a heretic, we're back in business, boys!

Reptile week here, for some reason.

X-Wing: NorraRey vs Missile Spam

Having just returned from the US, I was searching for jetlag cure and an evening's entertainment. Step in Kraken and another scum list.

Think Kraken, think Scum. That's what I'm aiming for with this series of Xwing games, and I won't stop until we become synonymous.

What's That You Saih?

99% of my collection may be boxed up in storage, but a brave few models have escaped the all-encompassing bubble-wrap, like the Fellowship fleeing Khazad-dûm.

Nothing but single-figure updates for the foreseeable. So let's start with the Mistweaver Saih!

Warlord of Galahir: Soiled Goods

Our last foray into the Galahir! Save the merchant! Grab the loot! Kill the warlord! Increase productivity! Be happy!

A report from Dungeon Saga, Warlord of Galahir - Mission 6: I Believe These Are Mine.

As usual, Kraken, Leofa and Stylus (me) played over Skype. And to judge by the mission's introduction, we're not the only ones phoning it in.

It's been a while, but there was time last weekend for a little SkypeWing between myself (Kraken) and General Kas.

Smeltdown: Ironjawz vs Disciples of Tzeentch

The Ark of Alternatives was unfolding like a tangram flower. Complex panels of engraved and enamelled bone shifted slowly through the air as the Tzeentchian choir chanted and hummed around it. Sparks of blue and pink light snapped and crackled from piece to piece. Already, you could hardly tell it had been a box at all.

What would it become? 


The apologetic acolyte was clearly reluctant to intrude. Zonaranoz, chief Magister of the Tzeentchian Throng, waved his apologies aside - if this was important enough for the acolyte to enter during the days-long ritual, it would have to be heard. 

"The greenskins have returned, and in greater numbers!" 

Zonaranoz sighed. "Hardly startling. It is their way. Very well. Muster the guard, we shall drive them off once more."

"But Magister, our guard! They are so few, and the orcs are many!"

Zonaranoz made a complex gesture, and the three nearest candelabra in the room flared with coruscating light. The heavy brass twisted, melting and bulging into new shapes. Within moments, a trio of Flamers writhed in place, guttering fire spilling from their boneless jaws. 

"Then we must create more," Zonaranoz said, smiling. "Come hither, boy. I shall show you a new rite, your very own transformation ahead of the great Day of Change. You shall become more powerful than you ever expected! You shall behold the Vortex, and become its bearer!"

The acolyte smiled nervously, but followed. Zonaranoz felt serene. The choir could manage without him for a time, and the creation of a Mutalith was always enjoyable. 

This should be fun.

Kairic Rolled

Due to the machinations of their arch-rival, Nurgle (i.e. an outbreak of chickenpox), these guys didn't get painted fast enough to attend WoffBoot XI.

But they have a battle coming up this week, and while they have a reputation of being expensive Marauders with a shooting option, I'm never gonna to give them up, nor let them down.

I apologise for the nature of these photographs. The hour was late, and there may have been beers.
