Battle Report: Crimson Fists vs Imperial Guard

So I had my mate over to my house the other day in order to play a game of the new edition of Warhammer 40,000; as previously stated I am a massive fan of the new version of the rules and as such I was keen to get another battle under my belt.

The majority of members of my usual gaming group are casual gamers and so we use the fairly informal but relatively balanced Power Points system to put our armies together. This system is ideal for quickly assembling a force and provides a fairly equal fun game for the majority of situations... Though it is vulnerable to exploitation by power gamers!

Crimson Fists Devastators

Finally I've managed to finish off some troops that I have been working on for quite a while. I initially started these three five-man devastator squads back in April after I completed work on my Imperial Knights. I have been doing bits on them on-and-off between other projects since then.

Fallout: Enclave Base Defence Troops

Well after a significant hiatus I have finally returned to my Fallout project. This time I have done some Enclave Base Defence Troops in combat armour from Fallout 2.

Excuse the poor photography, I painted the models two batches so the light was different when I took the photos.

Chapter Master Pedro Kantor

So having played a few games of eighth edition 40k recently it has become clear to me that special characters are much more useful in this new version of the game! With this in mind I decided to replace the venerable brother-captain who has been leading my force of Crimson Fists since 2002 with a new commander! Clearly there was only one choice of new Warlord for my force.... Chapter Master Pedro Kantor!

Scenery Renovation! - Budget Gaming

It is amazing how a bit of effort and time can breathe new live into certain hobby projects. Recently I was clearing out my hobby storage bunker when I came across a big box of JAVIS resin scenery that my best mate and I bought in 2004 when we got back into the hobby.

Most gamers in  the UK are probably aware of JAVIS products but I'm not sure how well known they are in the international community. As a company their roots lay in producing model railway scenery, but a few years ago they diversified in into making wargames terrain for the 20mm-28mm market.
