40k Battle Report - Grey Knights vs Imperial Knights / Flesh Tearers / Crimson Fists

I recently managed to get a fairly decent sized game of eighth edition 40k in with my mate. A key feature of this latest version of the game is that it is suitable for accommodating larger size games with relative ease due to the wonderful simplicity of the rules.

Warhammer 40,000 Conquest - Issue 1&2 Review

So for those of us who live  in the UK you can’t fail to have noticed the appearance of 40k related adverts that have been hitting our TV screens over the past few weeks.

This is something of a rarity as the last 40k commercials I can remember were for Space Crusade in conjunction with MB Games back in 1990 (I can still recall that annoying kid shouting ‘Plasma Gun’ at his mate before he was subsequently attacked by a lifesize and rather crap-looking Genestealer).

Crimson Fists Primaris Hellblasters

Having been focussed on my Flesh Tearers over the last couple of months I decided that it was time for a change and so set about finishing off a squad of Primaris Hellblasters for my Crimson Fists.

As I have said previously I am a big fan of the assorted Primaris models that have been released by Games Workshop over the last 12 months. They are invariably gorgeous sculpts that are a real pleasure to paint; but also I like the fact that scale-wise they are an appropriate size for genetically enhanced super-soldiers and possess a lovely clean aesthetic.

Flesh Tearers Space Marines Painting Guide Tutorial

Okay so since I recently got back on the wagon with my Flesh Tearers project a lot of people have been asking me about the paint scheme I have used on these marines.

I am always keen to give readers what they want and so have prepared this quick tutorial for the basic armour livery.

Hopefully this will be nice and easy for readers to follow and will allow you to quickly make up your own terrifying force of these psychotic successors to Sanguinius.

Warhammer 40,000 Mini-Tournament

One of the benefits of being in the military is that there are a large number of hobbyists within the service... additionally there is usually a lot of real estate available to play games in at most garrisons. In fact some of this space is actually large enough for small tournaments to be run by enterprising gamers... which is exactly what a few colleagues and I did recently.

And so it was that a US Navy Commander (who had flown over from an Operational Tour of Duty in Africa to play) and a collection of Royal Navy and British Army serviceman assembled one weekend for a few days of gaming fun.

Each of us brought a force of 100 Power Points to play with and an Army List that would be kept the same throughout the tournament. This force was small enough to ensure games would be quick and simple whilst also being tactically rewarding.

The forces that assembled were as follows:
