Constipated Cow; fantastic feral family fun!

Something very different this time dear readers.

MJ Games are currently running a Kickstarter campaign for a new card game entitled "Constipated Cow; The Game", and the guys have very kindly sent me a review copy to play around with. Let's see what this is all about!

Yep, this looks pretty silly!

Regimental Reporting: Something for the Tread Heads

Welcome back to the Regimental Mess my fellow Officers! In previous posts we have examined the Orders available to the various Infantry Officers, and today it's the turn of the not so humble Tank Commander.

That's right; that rumbling in the distance is the grinding advance of the fearsome Leman Russ Battle Tanks! The Russ is one of the most iconic units in the Imperial Guard army; they are effective in 8th edition, and the Tank Orders can make them even better.

Open fire on my mark!

Regimental Reporting: Stormy times ahead

Welcome back Commanders! Time for another post in the Regimental Reporting series; last time we looked at the new Imperial Guard Orders and how they affect the humble Cadian guardsman (I've made a few updates to that post, so it might be worth you having a quick catch up), and today we'll discuss the Orders available to the Militarum Tempestus.

The soldiers of Militarum Tempestus go by many names; Scions, Karskin, Storm Troopers & (perhaps a name unfairly given) Glory Hounds. Certainly compared to the regular infantry man, a Storm Trooper is extremely well trained and well equipped!

Nothing humble about these gents!

Regimental Reporting: Order! Order!

Welcome back to the Regimental Mess my fellow Officers. Following on from last week's inaugural 8th edition action for the Imperial Guard I've been pondering some of the toys the new Codex offers the wily general, and I've decided to focus first of all on a Commander's best friend, Orders!

It is a documented fact that the best troop in the entire universe is the Mighty Imperial Guardsman, and Orders just make them even mightier!*

*Evidence on available from your local Ministorum Propogandum liaison officer. 

Infantry advance!

Regimental Reporting: Staysback strikes back!

Welcome back to the Vault brave Venturers. This post comes at the end of the regular monthly gaming weekend; board games on the Saturday evening, followed by a game of 40K on the Sunday.

The board games evening was taken up with a play test of Salt Lands (more of that to come in a future post), whilst I took the opportunity to take the mighty Imperial Guard to the battle field for the first time in 8th edition, led by the brave, charming and incredibly ruthless* Colonel Staysback.

(*some of these descriptions may not necessarily be true; the Colonel values shiny medals and saving his own skin above all else).

The Imperial Guard needs you!

Power from Paint: Octoberfest Report

The Cult of the Sand Viper went to war, and did not fare the better for it! The meagre tally of slaves taken in battle has displeased the Archon, but the Dark Eldar are now much wiser to the modern ways of waging war and will be better prepared for next time!

Welcome back to the Vault; its time for the post Octoberfest pictures and thoughts.

The Archon's two aims: Look good, not get killed and give away "Slay the Warlord"

Power from Paint: Ready to Raid

Welcome once again my fellow Archons. Today is a bonus mid-week post, as I've finished the painting on the last model for my Dark Eldar raiding party for Saturday's Octoberfest.

It's the obligatory finished army picture post (and some tournament ramblings of course)!

Ready to Rumble!
