The Replacements

In my original list of units to repaint were my swooping hawks but I didn't have as much luck as I thought I would with them. It could be my play style or just the fact I wasn't aggressive enough with them. So what I've done is in my 1500 point list was replacing the swooping hawks with fire dragons and placing them in the wave serpent for the striking scorpions.

I'm going to try the list out tonight so we'll see how it goes. Look for a battle report in the near future.

Eldar Vs Imperial Guard Penal Legion 1500 pts

This is a quick battle report for a tournament a little while ago. It's the first time I've been able to take out all the enemy units. I think it was mostly because of oddly enough good roles on my part and just bad rolls for my opponent.

First try at Table Worthy Terrain

Hey all, here is my first try at terrain with a common theme. Maybe now I won't cringe when taking pics haha. It's much better then random pieces of foam and plastic. I wanted to share them with all of you. It's made up of xmas decorations picked up for $1.99 in the off season section of department stores, barker tile samples, sand and extra paint I found when I bought my house. So this little project only cost me about $20 or so. I'm making this for a future table I want to make. I've been given some great ideas with adding some extra colours, static grass and flock. If any of you hvae some ideas on making this a little better pls let me know.

Fox On - Pegasus Hobbies Crater Set

When I was in North Bay this weekend I picked up this Pegasus Hobbies Crater Set (5 craters) for only $24.00. I'm very happy with the quality and the fact that this set is cheaper then GW's and its painted.

20 x Guardians

1500 points of Eldar (almost done)

Hey all,

So here is what I took to the tournament in North Bay. I'm almost done painting everything. After all the painting I've been doing over the past few months and with how crazy works been I'm taking a nice long break from it. I hope to start again in a few weeks. I'll be starting with dire avengers and my fire dragons but I may want to get some more dragons, I only have 6. We'll see :)

I'll be posting a video with the results of the tournament.. Wow I did poorly but I had a blast. I lost 3 games and won 1, but I did something I've never done before, I tabled an IG player :D

Heavy Support

Oh so my heavy support is as finished as best as I can with the time I have. The 24th tournament in North Bay is this weekend so I kinda went cheap-o with the paint job on the hull. I'll be doing the same with the 3 wave serpents. After the tournament I want to paint them all up like the turrets and add some free hand runes.

Tank Turret Update

So here are my three heavy support choices, well their turrets, I have a few touch ups here and there and then I want to paint all the gems. I'm not 100% happy with the prism cannons yet so I'l be playing with them a little more. maybe try some blending. I dunno. Now on to the chassis.

Painting Update

Just reviewing the various models I'm repainting. Only painting 1500 points at this time. Also updated my night wing, titan bases and made a much nicer display board.

Tank Turrets WIP

So here are my tank turrets for my 1500 point list. Three wave serpent, two fire prism and one night spinner. I have a ways to go but I'm happy with it so far.

Display Board

Ok so here is my new display board. Went to a Value Village and picked up a calendar frame (my wife's idea, she rocks). I used the foam from my previous display board cut it to fit and inserted it the frame. Tossed some glue, sand, paint and I was done.

Updated Night Wing Bases

Here are my updated Night Wing bases. I've placed a nut at the top for the Night Wings' magnets. I picked up some plaques at the $1 store glued them to the existing bases I had. Added a little sand and paint. I'm happy with the result.

Warp Spiders!

Warp Spiders are close to being completed. Just a few details and some touch ups and they are completed. Now on to the tanks. Three Wave Serpents, two Fire Prism, one Night Spinner. I hope I can get these completed by the 24th. Wish me luck!

Autarch WIP

Here is a work in progress for my Autarch.

Striking Scorpions

Ok so here is a repaint update. My striking scorpions are 99% done, I just need to do the eyes and a few details more on the exarch. I have two tournamnts this month, one on the 10th in Petawawa and one on the 24th in North Bay. I really hope I can get most of my stuff done for these tournaments. Next up.. You guessed it, Warp Spiders!

DIY - Basing With Sand

Just a little video on how I go about basing my models.

I find some sand in the back yard, make sure its fine sand. Bake the sand at about 225'F to kill any nasties in it. I'll water down some glue and brush it on the base then dip the model's base into the sand. Shake off the excess and you're done. Paint it up add some green stuff vines if you like, have fun with it! remember to try this before you base coat your models makes life much easier.

Game Summit 2010!

Just a quick video of the 2010 Game Summit in Ottawa Ontario!!

Game summit 2010 Apoc Battle 50k!

Here is the Midnight Apocalypse battle @ the Game Summit I've run for the past 3 years. First year we had about 16 K, Second year we had about 30k This year we had 50,000!!!!!! The battle was to end the Locara campaign. Xenos won!

If it wasn't for the Dark Eldar stratagem we would have had a much harder time.

The New Colours of Anasinia

So I've finally found a colour scheme I like. I'm priming black, painting shadow grey and dry brushing ice blue. For the gems I'm using scorpion green and a mix of scorpion green and space wolf grey. The face plates are space wolf grey and the bases are bestial brown with a dry brush mix of bestial brown and space wolf grey.

DIY - How to Strip Your Models!

What you need:
-Rubber Gloves
-Tooth Brushes
-Glass Bottles

WARNING: Be fricken careful! :)

Tuesday, February 2, 2010


I found this trolling around the web and found it rather interesting. It covers all armies and has some great rules involved in it. Big_Willie from DeepSpace calls it a mix of 40k and necromunda. I'm looking forward to play testing it.

The Imperial hiveworld of Icarus Prime, once located in the Agrippinaa system, a mere handful of light years from the Eye of Terror, mysteriously disappeared in the year 850.M41. Ninety-nine years later, sporadic reports of a world matching its atmospheric signature appeared deep within the Eastern Fringe, near Tau space and directly in the path of HiveFleet Leviathan. Forces from all over the Eastern fringe are being dispatched to investigate the ruins of this once mighty hiveworld.

Welcome to Thunderhawk Down:
Generally speaking, the rules for Warhammer 40,000 are used for this game. While the final version will be more complete, for now assume that the normal 40k rules apply with the following additions. Hopefully you will enjoy playing this game as much as we did putting it together. At this early stage, we want constructive criticism on everything. We want additional ideas. We want ways to improve on what we have begun here.

The Call of Locara

The Anasinia drifted quietly in the shadows of Ulthwe awaiting her Farseer to return from a meeting with the Craftworlds seer council. Krish’el stood emotionless as the order to leave the Craftworld was given. She understood the purpose and importance of her mission but detested the thought of leaving her quest unfinished. Turning the young Farseer left for her waveserpent feeling in her heart this was the right thing to do.

A short time later aboard the Anasinia, an Eldar eclipse cruiser, Krish’el met with her two closest generals. Sha'eil, he who strikes from the warp was the only Autarch aboard the cruiser and led the aspect warriors of the host. Anastari the cast out, once warlock of Saim Hann was rescued by the Anasinia’s Eldar when her bike unit was nearly wiped out. Now a Farseer she and the remainder of her unit joined their Uthwe kin to repay the debt. Realizing they may never return to Saim Hann for risk of being declared tainted, as many regard those from Ulthwe because of their proximity to the Eye of Terror.

Sha'eil was first to speak, “Are we free to continue our search?”

Krish’el shook her head, “No, we’ve been ordered to cease our efforts and move to an area of space the Mon-keigh call Locara.”

“Why, Locara?” Anastari asked as she looked to the table glancing over the webway map.

Sha'eil took Anastari’s hand and placed it over the map both felt their hands move as if drawn towards an area labeled in the tongue of the Mon-keigh, “Can you not feel the pull, as if something is calls us there?” Anastari looked shocked still new to her growing powers.

Sha'eil’s face grew grim, “The Mon-keigh are already there, as are many others. We need to answer this call and stop them from uncovering any of Locara’s secrets.” With little else said the three parted to prepare the crew for long journey.

This is my submission for the Locara Achievement 29. Mighter than the Sword.

I was out shopping and found some stuff that may have me making a Tyranid army.. :O The purple eggs could be made into mycetic spores and this big fellow could be pulled apart and made into a hierophant but I'm not sure yet. Maybe I'll just try and sell them to buy more Eldar stuff :D

Locara Battle Report: Eldar vs Ultra Marines 1500 points

Hey all, here is a battle report for the Locara campaign, Eldar vs Marines. Lots of love for my guardians in this battle and in the second to come shortly. Enjoy

Eldar Vs Eldar Battle Report 1500 Points

In this battle I faced off against Eldar, something that doesn't happen very often. I seem to be a lot stronger at playing objective battles rather then kill points. I guess its because I will gladly sacrifice a unit to move the enemy's army to where I want them to be and hope to catch them off balance. Now when it comes to kill points I play really cautious with my units and this is usually to a fault and find myself stuck in a corner getting chewed to bits. lol I guess we'll see what happens this coming tournament in North Bay on how well I do with this list and then at the tournament in Ottawa at the end of next month. Wish me luck, I'll need it haha.

Eldar Terrain/Objective Markers

Glass "things" I found at the dollar store. using them as objective markers or display-board terrain.
