October's last stand

Gooooooood evening, good evening, good evening,

That last games night for October 2013 went off like milk on a hot day with plenty of games occupying tables.
Straight Geedub games this week with only 40k and WHFB being played.

So lets get to it. We'll kick off with a slew of sci-fi pew pews, the first in line being a small skirmish training match:

Second in line is a Necron vs Ork smashup:

Just a little bit outnumbered

Waaarrrghh!! (I assume)
pimp my ride?

Wraiths disassemble an ork garbage truck

Coming in third is a Tyranid vs Dark Elf Eldar kerfuffle:

The Green Goblin chases off a few xenomorphs

Now we'll take a trip back in time to visit how the Fantasy folk are keeping, starting off with an Orc & Skaven match:

so... many.. rats

check out the size difference from the old ed Orcs on the left to the newer ed fellas on the right.

ahh the A-bomb... dirty as mud :p

Then we have Lizardmen vs daemons of the Nurgle variety (with a sprinkling of Khorne):

How to win a WHFB game. Step 1: get Nurgle Prince in forest into combat...

Step 2: Win
The above daemon army belongs to infrequent club visitor Jake who made his own daemons for the most part. I think you'll agree that they looks suitable Nurglish.

... aaaaand we're done. Now seeing as I won't be attending the club this coming Friday due to celebrations of the Halloween and birthday types, I'll instead post the long awaited Dark Gathering tournament write up.

Until then dear readers, take care.

Wise fwom your gwave...

I have returned!! :-D Released from my tour of house sitting in an internet deprived region of the country, I can now unload a torrent of images from the last couple of EWA meets, tonights meet (probably posted tomorrow morning), and a tournament report that Shamps and myself attended a little while ago.

The post today will be featuring images from the last couple of EWA meets, which were a little quiet. I'll post the tournament report in a separate page to keep things nice and organised. Lets gets this thing started!

First up is a couple of pictures from an Orc & Gobbo army that I had sitting in a box. I brought it along to sell in part to another club member and as I was super early, myself and another member Tom thought "Bugger it, we're bored.. lets see exactly what was in the box" (I hadn't counted what was in there for years) ...

The complete horde ... with added chaos warriors >.>

Chaos warrior leader.. on a pig.. 'cos we can

 Next up were a couple of games of 40k ... now since it's been a couple of weeks I can't remember exactly who was playing what, so I'm just going to post these photos as a lump:

A Marine and Eldar shoot out:

... and a Chaos Marine vs robots:

this is what happens when you don't update your firmware

 ...and lastly, representing the WHFB section, we have my Lizards vs Skaven in one match then a week or two later, vs Ogres:

run rats, ruuunnn!

there will be blood

 So that bring my revival to an end for today. Stay tuned as I'll upload my Dark Gathering WHFB tournament report up in the next couple of days, as well as the goings on at the club tonight (25/10/13).

Oh also, can someone please comment something.. I want to see how it works 'n stuff on my end, plus I'm feeling oh so lonely :p

September 27..err.. something something heaven?

Ok, first off, the post title ... I haven't had breakfast so I'm not the most imaginative so shut up :p

Now that I've gotten my title defence out of the way, how about some piccies? Yes? Righto then...

How about for a change we'll start off with some WHFB in which I was able to play 2 x 1500 pt games to test my Dark Gathering tournament list (which will be taking place this Sunday 6th.. stay tuned for a report):

The first game was vs a dirty Warriors of Chaos list..

the crushers line up to charge and smash some little lizards....

.... to which the the bigger lizards seek vengeance

My 2nd game was vs the Vampire Counts...

no, that isn't a terrorgheist proxy in the corner >_>

a hoard of lizards send the hoard of grave guard back to the grave.. to .. guard :s

40,000 years later there is still only war.. still...

Filthy Orkses vs the dudebros.. err.. marines:

party at Franks place...

... and here is the line to get into said party

not to be outdone by the Orks, the Marines host their own party...

"No Homer's allowed"

The ghostly 'Nids attempt to chew through the wall of Imperial Guard flesh..

40 vs 1 seems fair?

Just a single shot of an Eldar / Marines biffo:

and lastly we have the Imperial Guard charging towards some Marine tanks., hoping their squishy bits would rust up the tank treads:


There we go. Another day, another blog post. :)

Advance Warning!! My next blog post will probably be delayed due to myself house sitting for a friend next week for a couple of weeks, so until I get my PC connected to the internets I obviously can't upload a post :s
I promise that it'll be a double post though as I'll send through a report on the Dark Gathering tournament Shamps and I will be attending this Sunday.

Until then, don't get blown away from the crazy weather we've been having recently and feel free to comment on what you've seen today.

Cheers - Bensome
