Armies on Parade 2018

Hello all!

So last weekend was my local Warhammer Armies on Parade event and it was awesome. The turn out this year was higher than previous years and it was great to see some young bloods get stuck in.

Now I’ve been threatening Dave the manager with participating for at least 3 years now and so I thought it was high time I bit the bullet and have a go at it. I have to say that even though the pressure was high to get it completed on time ( I managed to get it all done in 6 weeks ) I enjoyed the sheer hobby madness of it all and if you’re thinking of doing it then I say get to it, you won’t be disappointed and it’s a great way to challenge yourself.

So how’d I do?…………………….Not half bad! I managed to get the awards for Best Theme, Best Army and Best Painted in the 40K category and took home silver in the managers choice. I even got a medal!

I have plans to expand the army as well with another 15 models to add in the future. My Black Shields will be a grim force to be reckoned with that’s for sure.

Here’s some pictures of my army with more to follow soon. I will take better ones of the squads and characters as well. Hope you like them 🙂

Stylites Game

Hello all.

So last weekend I got together with Alex of Leadballony and we had a few games of Stylites, a game that Alex and I wrote one hot summers day. It was the first time we played on the board I designed and I tell you what it’s a pretty brutal game.

 

game1

The rules, which you can find here, are very simple allowing for very quick games of stylite hopping, servo skull dodging madness.

game3

One of the things we found was that the penitents that occupy some of the stylites are tough buggers and I found myself being battered off an occupied stylite more than once ( rolling damn 1’s ) ending the game as my character plummeted to the ground with a wet thud.

Get off my Stylite!!

After playing a few two player games we decided to play some four player ones and this is where things got interesting. Hacked servo skulls flying around all over the place! Cruel shoving, bad fumbles and just hanging on for dear life after being smacked around by an insane penitent. All good fun 🙂

game4
I dare you skull- jacker!
game8
Take that! You smelly bastard!
game12
Now come to Papa.

All in all much fun was had and don’t forget to design your own Skull – Jackers and penitents for your chance to win the monster Skull Crab. Here’s some more images from the day. Cheers! 🙂
