This weekend, I managed to get a 1500 point three way game in, using some of the new rules from the new Blades of Khorne Battletome. I’ve not got the right combination of models to field any Battalions yet so was simply using Blood Blessing Prayers, new Artefacts and Command Traits, and the new Blood Tithe system.
Myself and many other Khorne players are eagerly awaiting the arrival of the new Blades of Khorne Battletome this weekend (8th April). The announcement came in the middle of March that we were getting one and we got a bit more information this Saturday when pre-orders went live.
Needless to say, we’ve had a number of leaked images of pages from the Battletome appear on the internet from various sources. These are slowly spreading onto the usual places (I’m sure it’ll appear on BoLS in a week citing how new it is) but I thought I’d try and collect them together in a post so that it’s nice and easy to reference them. I’ll also throw in my own opinions as I go.
Games Workshop are certainly running in top gear at the moment. The early hours of Tuesday morning saw a surprise preview of Duardin Kharadron Overlords, a new Starter Set game in the form of Thunder & Blood, Warhammer Underworlds: Shadowspire, an Age of Sigmar competitive game and Shadow War: Armageddon which is based on the original Necromunda rules. Phew! All of these items were on show at the GAMA show which is a business trade fair for board game companies and re-sellers.
So my Khorne Bloodbound has begun to grow from it’s small 1000 points and last Friday I began to put together a second unit of Blood Warriors, though this time armed with paired Goreaxes (which allows me to re-roll To Hit rolls of 1 in combat).
My original intention had been to assemble five of the box and pack out my original unit and then use the rest for kit-bashing chariots and similar. However after some thought, I can’t see me adding chariots to the army anytime soon, so it just made sense to make the whole unit up for my 2000 points.
Transporting miniatures is probably one of the most frustrating elements for gamers and even more so for those of us who use public transport to get around. There are a plethora of miniature carry cases on the market which include offerings from KR Multicase, Battlefoam and Feldhur who provide a range of different transportation options.
OK, I admit it – 2016 was a year full of blogging and 2017 has been rubbish so far! I could hide behind a number of excuses but primarily it’s been a lack of time both for writing and visible progress being pretty slow on projects.
Currently I’ve got three main projects on the go: Death Army; Acastus Knight Porphyrion; Bloodbound expansion
In less than a couple of weeks, a few hundred die hard fans will be heading to Nottingham for the Horus Heresy Weekender 2017! This event has rapidly become one of the highlights of the year for fans of the heresy and this year I’m sure will be no different.
So this post has been made following on from what appears to be leaked images of the schedule for the Horus Heresy weekender 2017 – full credit goes to The Imperial Truth who shared this on their Twitter feed. The original version also appeared on 4chan, however I can’t get access to that at the moment so cannot confirm.
A slightly belated Happy New Year! In this post I go over progress on my Acastus Knight Porphyrion, putting together my AoS Death army and the plans I’ve got for 2017 – needless to say, I’m planning far too much!
I spent quite a bit of time not at home over Christmas, so though I made hobby progress, I didn’t make quite as much as I’d have liked
The Forge World Acastus Knight Porphyrion was unveiled at the Horus Heresy Weekender in February put up for sale last week and I can happily say that I have one of these in my hands and what a beast! Weighing in at 1.6Kg and pretty much the same height as a Warhound Titan the Acastus Knight Porphyrion is a true heavyweight in the arsenal of any Questoris household or as a Lord of War option for a Mechanicum army – that’s right folks, with the experimental rules Forge World have released Legion armies can’t field this model. The rules are also only for 30k and we’re being told by Forge World that the 40k rules are “coming soon” – my belief is that they’ll be included in the Fires of Cyraxus Imperial Armour book rather than as a PDF release.
I’ve come to the conclusion that every six months or so, I have a bit of a hobby wobble and need to give myself both a kick up the backside and a change of scenery. Quite often this coincides with being stupidly busy, which is what seems to have happened over the past month – the longest break I’ve had without blogging this year.
So this post is to give you a bit of an update on what’s been happening and what I’ve got on the go currently. Continue reading “Hobby wobble, the last month and things planned”
