Focus isn't our strong suit in our little gaming group, so Dan & I figured why not start a Dakka plog to show what we're up to? There will be various themes here, but all will be the united by the love of little plastic soldiers and the hatred of spending money..

Step forward 1/72 40k:



https://skinflintgames.wordpress.com/2016/04/19/da-skooderia-pt-2/ - Da Skooderia Ferrorki, Evil Sunz Warband

Khornate Chaos Cultist

Guardsman of the Hazzard 1977th

Our own 1950s retro sci fi/ WW2 mishmash, Apocalypse Earth:

featuring the noble Atlantic Alliance defying the evil hordes of the Holy Soviet Empire.. at least sometimes..

Apocalypse Earth's steampunk/VSF/fantasy cousin, Hyperian Wars:

https://skinflintgames.wordpress.com/2016/09/

The skirmish/RPG Apocalypse Earth: Black Ops spinoff:

https://skinflintgames.wordpress.com/2016/04/

And not forgetting our guilty love of 2nd Ed Space Marine!

https://skinflintgames.wordpress.com/2016/12/26/im-dreaming-of-a-green-xmas-epic-space-marine-battle-report/

Over the last 18 months or so our modelling skills have come on apace, largely thanks to many of the posters here on Dakka. Hopefully we can post the odd thing you guys will enjoy, and the karmic balance will be complete!

So post battle report, I've been tidying up the marines, rebasing them with a mix of dust and flock, and the difference is just off the scale. Thoroughly recommend as an alternative to straight flock.

Anyway, hill including WIP shots:

Finished upgrading a ruins piece of terrain originally made from a wine box and some paper mache... now reworked with filler, detailing, textures etc. Used cocktail sticks and guitar string off cuts for the cables and rebar rods.

Thanks man, I think the papercraft template was actually for 28mm but it's made for a monstrous centrepiece! He's packing dual anti-aircraft machine guns, a power fist with attached flame thrower and a lightning launcher so LOTS of short-range assault firepower... Let's see if he survives his first game...

So after trying 40k in 1/72 the other week, we figured we'd stat up our forces for our WIP sci fi spin off of Apocalypse: Earth and give it a try:

So, inspired by a certain Dakka Dakka user by the handle of Skalk Bloodaxe, and buoyed by the success of the plasma reactors we built earlier in the year, we went a bit mad and built something HUGE and COMPLICATED...

https://skinflintgames.wordpress.com/2018/04/26/terrain-talk-pt-5-insane-megabuild-power-substation-skalk-point/




This was a BIG job, and we made quite a few mistakes along the way, but it was an interesting process and hopefully some of you can learn from our mistakes!

"So, so far the casual observer of our Apocalypse: Earth battle reports might have thought that it was all just about the Atlantic Alliance vs the evil Holy Soviet Empire.. but that's a long way from the truth. As anyone (both of you) who has read our fluff will know, the fateful Soviet invasion of February 1954 crashed across the German border with devastating force, catching the League Of European Nations not quite with their pant down, but certainly at half mast!

With Germany winning a Pyrrhic victory in the Great War at the Battle Of Paris in November 1914, and the League of European Nations being set up in the wake up the military coup that toppled the Kaiser two months later, it was German patterned equipment, doctrine and armaments that formed the backbone of LoEN armed forces in the early years of the war.."

So as it turns out, Betrayal At Calth isn't just a starter set of 30k miniatures, it's actually a game. And as we've been discovering, really quite a good one:

https://skinflintgames.wordpress.com/2018/05/23/bargain-at-calth-or-30k-for-under-5-yes-we-can

I recommend this for anyone who wants to get a little extra "bang for buck" with their model collections, there are a good few eBay sellers who buy the game for the minis and sell the rest on for a pittance.

So as the League Of European Nations finally hit the table, I decided to scratchbuild a motorised laser cannon carriage from cardboard, batteries and general junk. Turned out looking pretty good (although so far it's not fared too well on the tabletop!)

Old gaming buddy used to put on 1/72 WW2 games. I always thought it was a great foundation for gaming. You can do so much with that scale.

Kicking off 2019 with a dose of 2nd Ed retro gaming –

Brother Lorenzio tapped his comm-link again and muttered a curse. No matter what he did, he couldn't tune out the sibilant high frequency pulsating that he would almost swear sounded like some form of rhythmic high pitched bell… He put it out if his mind as the sonorous voice of Brother Sergeant Garcia came across the squad net.

"Stay close, brothers, the enemy is lightly armed but numerous. Brother Fiorian, your flamer to the fore."

The net chimed as Brother Enricio chimed in. "Forgive me, Brother Sergeant – enemy sighted, three contacts, each ten strong, bearings 294, 012 and 027"

The combat squad clustered behind a ruined wall. Garcia's voice across the net again – "Close and destroy, brothers. Grenades and flamer, bolter and sword. On me!"

With that, the five Space Marines roared their assent and charged toward their foe..

Back to Feb 14 1954 in our alternate "history" of Earth as the Holy Soviet hordes steamrolling their way across Europe get to grips with the Atlantic Alliance for the very first time in this scenario from Operation IRON HEART!

Lots of explosions, lots of scratchbuilt stuff, most of it on fire by the end of the first turn – enjoy!

Right, it's ON!

For better or worse, Dan and I have signed up to the League of Extraordinary Riveters terrain competition... We've ogled other people's work for long enough, time to throw our hat into the ring.

This time the theme is using something food based as a start point - full explanation here: https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/775200.page

So we're beginning with this:



Every year I get a Cadbury's Creme Egg for Easter, and once my blood sugar level has subsided enough to allow rational thought, I look at the packaging and think "What could this be.." - and inevitably chuck it in the recycling before it gets the chance to be anything

but NOT THIS YEAR!

This is going to be... a Vrilfire Reactor!

A what?

A Vrilfre reactor - a piece of terrain for our steampunk/ fantasy/ VSF version of Apocalypse: Earth, the as-yet-unpublished Hyperian Wars! This is for the Virum Nascii faction (who bear an uncanny, but purely coincidental resemblance to Skaven but in 20mm scale) - essentially Skaven Chernobyl. On the world of Hyperia, Vril powers all things magickal and makes civilisation possible - a VrilFire reactor can generate enough power to supply a whole province. But the Virum Nascii are renowned looters and thieves, their engineering feats based on corrupted magicks... so this should get interesting.... I haz IDEAS!

..or, can 40k ever be "good"? When a company depends on an ever expanding model range, with new rules to boot, is power creep and "unbalancing" an inevitable? How much "support" is not enough, and how much is too much?

Don't have any answers, but I'm intrigued to hear others views. Drop us a comment with your thoughts!

Post by: The Riddle of Steel


Skinflint, good thoughts. I think a lot of folks agree that 3rd - 4th/5th was a golden age for 40k where the rules were simplified from 2nd edition and the rules bloat hadn't gotten out of hand. Initially, I was excited about 8th edition and the rumors of a simplified core rules system. But this was vastly overshadowed by the immense complexity they have introduced in formations and strategems and command points and special rules for each units, as well as so many books with rules and points updates. It used to be that you could wrap your head around an edition, even as a casual player. But now it feels like unless you are fully embedded and saturated in the game, you cannot keep up with what are the latest rules. The pace of updates is too frequent for a book-based game and maybe they just need to move all digital rules so they can be constantly updated, if that is what they want.

Personally, I like a game that is a little slower-moving. I only get in a max of one game per month so it takes me and my brother about two years just to thoroughly learn a rules system so we don't like frequent changes. Also, to me, the fun of the game is not in using a command point at the right time to throw down some card to beat my opponent's unit. To me, it is about strategic deployment and maneuvering into better positions than my opponent. But I understand that the hardcore players who play all the time likely get bored unless there are constant updates and new things.

All of this is a big part of why my brother and I have shifted to playing Horus Heresy, where the system in a little more stable over longer time periods. And we just love classic things like vehicles facing, flamer templates, etc. But just re-reading the 3rd edition rulebook the other day, it made me a bit nostalgic for when things were so simple. The 7th edition/Horus Heresy rule set is unnecessarily complex with so many rules that add lots of things to remember (and result in multiple trips to the rule book in every game) that don't add much to the enjoyment of the game for me, such as Challenges between characters and Look Out, Sir! that seem to just make characters extra powerful at the expense of the rank and file.

Ideally, I would like the game to be simple and fast-paced where there is almost no need to refer to any books or cards during the game. Our eyes should stay on the table and the beautiful models! This should be a battle simulation, not a card game. The complexity should come from the difficult tactical decisions you need to make in the game that should vary with the situation and not be no-brainers.

To your point, all of that would drastically reduce the number of models and books they could sell so it is unlikely. But I am going to propose to my brother maybe getting out our old 3rd or 4th edition rules and codexes and play a few games to see if the older, simpler rules are as fun as we remember.

For a while now we've been playing with the idea of "scaling" the Apocalypse: Earth setting for different games – just as back in the day GW had Epic, 40k and Necromunda for massed battles, intermediate and small scale skirmishes with different levels of detail, we've been toying with the idea of a 6mm mass battle version as well as an intimate, up-close-and-personal RPG (of sorts) set in the shadows of the Apocalypse: Earth universe…

In advance of our hoped for sci fi gaming league, I've added a DIY Rhino to our little band of 1/72 Crimson Fist Marines (40K)/ Battle Brothers (Grimdark FUture)/ PSLA Spetsnaz (Future Force Warrior) - cardboard, foamboard , cocktail stick, IDE cable (thanks Zrunelord) and sprue bits, enjoy!

In what is becoming something of a tradition, we celebrated both the end of our local lockdwon and the release of 9th ed 40k by revisiting the classic Battle At The Farm with our DIY 1/72 minis:
