Happy Holidays!

Merry Christmas everybody! Lots of stuff going on here, as I´m sure will be the case with you. I will try and see if I write up a proper post tomorrow, but no promises! Holiday season isn´t the best season for bloggin, apparently. Anyway, for those of you who haven´t seen it, a little link to something I think you should all see. (Well, don't click it if you didn't like the Lord of the Ring films)

This is awesome!

Good, right? Can't wait for the movie to come out!

Anyway, have a nice few days, I hope you get all the gaming presents you wanted and bought some cool stuff to give away to others. Be kind and do good, and all that. Oh yes, and the most important, don't over eat!

Merry Christmas!

Monday Morning Gamer - 19/12

Life intervened! But enough with the excuses! I'm back with a special edition of Monday Morning Gamer. While I usually talk about Fantasy related stuff on here, today I have for you the complete rules to a special type of 40K game. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to climb the ladder of power in one of the Dark Eldar Kabals in Commoragh? Do you have what it takes to become an Arena champion, or the most feared Haemonculus around? Here is your chance to find out! What follows are the rules for a small Campaign system, using just the Dark Eldar Codex and as many players as you can find.

Thunderstomp presents: Dark Streets of Commoragh!

Monday Morning Gamer - 12/12

Hello and welcome to Monday Morning Gamer, the place to get your post-weekend wargaming fix! Let’s start things off quickly because I have a lot of stuff to cover today:

The new FaQs are up for three Fantasy armies and I’ll take a look at each of them to discuss the changes. Next we take a look at something that we all do, but each of us does it slightly differently: List building! Some tips and things to look out for when you design your list. Lastly, a small teaser video of something I came across this morning that you computer gamers might find interesting. 

And away we go!

Game Night! 9/12

Hello and welcome to Game Night! This is my weekly report of my actual gaming action. Much like a real game night, this section focusses on playing actual battles, whether it´s through army builds, tactics or battle reviews. Something fun to read over the weekend.

For today´s installment of Game Night! I have the following planned for you. First and foremost, my last battle in the Fantasy Campaign I played in. As you might remember, I played this game a couple of weeks back, but I have only now found the time to do up a proper Thunderstomp-style report!
Secondly, I’ll be talking you through part of my Ogre Army Builds. I have, obviously, already done a part 1 of that series, the Smashmouth Ogres. Part two focusses on a different type of Ogre army: the Gunslingers.  Lastly, and I know I might be a bit late when it comes to this, I am getting ready to play my first ever Storm of Magic game and I’ll look at some possible additions to my normal Skaven army.

Alright, a lot of stuff to cover, so let’s get going!

Midweek Modelling - 7/12

What's this? A scheduled post arriving on time? Did I just spot a flock of pigs flying by?

Yes, it's true: Midweek Modelling is here and it's on time! Progress, if anything. Now, if only my modelling and painting skills were of such a level that Midweek Modelling deserved such a grand introduction :p

Still, another week and more painting has been done. Quit a lot, actually, although I didn't get everything I wanted finished. Such is life!

On with the show!

Monday(ish) Morning Gamer - 6/12

Hello and welcome to this week's edition of Monday Morning Gamer! Every Monday I will talk about a few different subjects to do with tabletop gaming, basically anything I can come up with that isn't to do with modelling (which I save for Midweek Modelling) or with Army Lists and Battle Reports (which I save for Game Night!
What's that? It's Tuesday, you say...? Shush.... Keep that to yourself, will you?

For this week's installment of MMG I have the following planned for you. Firstly, a more comprehensive look at the new campaign book Blood in the Badlands. I've read this thing front to back to front and back again and I have to admit I.... no wait, I'll save that for later in the post.
Secondly I have a special scenario for all you Dragon lovers out there. Something I've been wanting to try out for ages and I finally wrote up some rules for it. I hope to try it out soon!
That should probably be enough for this week. I have plenty of stuff I want to tell you for today!

Off we go!

Game Night! (delayed from 2/12)

**EDIT - And the layout got eaten once more... Why do I use that app again? Sigh. Anyway, fixed now, with apologies**

Hello and welcome to Game Night! As usual this is going up a bit later than planned, but who cares? It's all for fun anyway! Also, I totally intend to do a Monday Morning Gamer post tomorrow so there will be plenty to read for you this week!

Right, so what do I have planned for today? Mostly I will be talking about a tournament I went to last Saturday. Also, I will talk about how I'd would do a Necron army if I were to start Necrons (I'm not, but it's fun to dream!). And I'll leave it at that for now. I don't want to use up all my blogging energy before I even start writing MMG!

First things first:

Game Night! postponed due to outburst of painting madness

Just a quick post to tell you that due to painting that I have had to do for tomorrow's tournament, today's episode of Game Night! will be delayed.

Not to worry, tomorrow evening / sunday morning I'll have the post up, with a report of the tournament as well as some other gaming goodies!

And just so you know: I have actually managed to finish the 50 Slaves, the 26 Stormvermin, and the Warp Lightning Cannon (almost forgot that one!) that I need for tomorrow's tournament! All that is left to do is the eyes on all the models and a highlight on all the red armour bits, but those can wait til after the tournament! And on the plus side, with 26 Stormvermin and a WLC already 90% painted, I'll have a very easy rest-of-the-month painting Skaven for the Tale!

Right, I'm off to bed! Here's hoping tomorrow's tourney goes better than the last one!

Blood of the Badlands in the house!

I have it! Just went out to see if I could get the new Campaign book and I did! Just been flicking through it now. Looks great fun. What it basically is, is a campaign report featuring 8 players, with all the additional rules you´d need as a group of players to play this campaign as well.

Haven´t read much, but did notice that the actual rules for Siege Battles and Underground Battles, while in there, only take uo about 6 pages in total. The book has 96 pages. Still, they are in there, ready to be used!

Right, I´m off to read this book cover to cover and see if this campaign is fun enough that´I´ll try and pitch playing this to my mates! Of course I should be painting stormvermin because I need 26 of those this Saturday but they can wait, right?
