Our attempts to travel back in time to Christmas 1993 continue with Marines v Orks in the second scenario from our mini-campaign:

With the third and final game on the horizon, it was either shell out £30 for a dreadnought, play with the cutout, or get busy... We chose option C!

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!

The ladz are all painted up and ready (along with their papercraft DIY dread) to bring the pain to the Marines! It's 1-1 as we go into the third and final game of the campaign..

The final climactic game from the 2nd Ed campaign book, can the Greenskins drive the Deathwatch back or will the xenos fall under the might and fury of humanity's finest?

Adding some badass firepower to the League of European Nations faction before we try to wrest back control of Skalk Point from the evil Holy Soviet Empire - fun little build, check it out:

You've got some really neat projects here!

I don't know if it's my browser, but on all of your blog posts that i look at from here i can only see the first two or three images at most.

Those are quite nifty little... spheres.

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:

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

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!






Automatically Appended Next Post:
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!

Wow, that was a big 'un... possibly our most ambitious terrain project yet! Shout out to Mel Bose himself, it was his D-day board that inspired this:

Our D-Day commemoration game, a slightly odd nerdy salute to the heroes who landed that day but a salute nonetheless! (this is a biggy – grab a beer…)

Battle report up! 1000pts, Orc Marauders vs Human Defence Force. Thoroughly enjoyable game, maybe a little over simplified but a great start ruleset for those getting in to the hobby. Remind me how many rulebooks/ codexes/ chapter approved you need to have to play 8th?

With all the Virum Nascii work we've been doing recently, it seemed only fitting to go back and upcycle an old model for the human Ancien Regime faction…

Following on from our last game, Lord Ratticus' Virum Nascii forces are emboldened and more numerous, and this time it's the human Ancien Regime faction who are in their way...
