Just got back from the UK where I picked up a copy of Tanks and some Pershings and IS-2's to go with it.

 

It is not available here yet but a mate of mine pre-ordered it from the UK so I had already played it before I went to the UK so knew that I had to get it myself.

 

Good skirmish game that is very easy to learn and pick up however, is hard to master with an underlining complexity that at first glance you don't see.

Just getting ready to head off to MOAB.

 

Again I'm not competing however I still enjoy droping in and soaking up all of the wargaming goodness.

 

There is going to be a Tanks demo all weekend which I'm excited about as I would love to see more people get into this great little skirmish game that really is very cheap to get into compared to other games around.

 

Will post a report once I get back.

Nice job with the Chaos minis Hector! I'm still painting and playing. Mostly 15mm ancients these days using the very excellent Sword and Spear rule set. A few of our gaming club have been poring over the pre-release Sword and Spear: Fantasy rule supplement and we're all excited about dusting off our old WHFB minis and re-purposing them.

 

I had a few mates at MOAB this year playing S&S. I'll couldn't make it but I'll be trying again next year.

 

Would be very interested in a review on Tanks.

Ok just a tad late!

 

MOAB was great as usual.

 

The thing that stood out the most was how much GW games are dying at least in the tournament scene. Fantasy was non-existent and 40k was just a foot note.

 

The big hitters were Bolt Action, Flames of War and Team Yankee with nice turn outs in the smaller games.

 

I made just over $300 in the buy and sell which was nice and was able to clear out stuff I have not touched in years.

 

All in all another great day out. If you have never been it is well worth a look even if you are not into tourney play you will find a lot of retailers in one spot and meet like minded people.

If you like a nice simple rules set with a small amount of minis in a small play area that can be played in 30 to 60 mins, then this could be for you.

 

The tank stats and movement are abstract however, they do give you the feel of the vehicle without bogging you down in overcomplicated data.

 

I have a group that meets approx once a month and plays boardgames. Of the 4 of us 3 are wargammers from way back and the other has only been a boardgamer.

 

We played tanks one night and our boardgamer friend loved it because to him it felt more like a board game and he was able to pick up the rules in about 5 minutes.

 

Games like this that bridge the gap between wargame and boardgame are very useful in introducing non-wargamers to wargaming.

Well, it's been a while, duders! Been a good long while.

Finally got back into some proper *gaming* (rather than just painting) over the last few weeks.

GW's "Kill Team" box set of last year really gave me the drive to hit some smaller battles. Playing a bastard blend of KT & 40K rules while we get back into the swing of things, but plenty of fun is being had and that, I think, is way more important than rules Nazism.

Also, decided this week that I'd had enough of Ultramarines. I've been playing the Space Smurfs for over 20 years, so into a bucket of Simple Green they went.

Going to go Imperial Fists this time around. Should be fun!

Hector - your painting and basing talent shames me, as does my small hill of unpainted and unbuilt models. The battle above looks great, but what was the play like? Did the Orks win?? were the evil Tau driven from the board in shame? How did your ex-smurfs turn out after their long-delayed cleansing????

Pretty sure the Tau got bollocked, from memory. Massively outnumbered.

Dodgy photo is dodgy from a few months ago. Still slowly pecking away at them.

Working on the vehicles at the moment.

That's a whole lotta yellow hector!

 

I have a whole pile of 15mm Gauls staring at me accusingly from across the hobby desk.

Fucking cunts

 

Dirty little fucking shit

 

Little fucking mother fuckers

Fucking filthy little...

 

 

I'm done. That's it. Another new rule release, so soon, after all the Psychic Awakening shit



I'm giving away all my Games Workshop models. I'm giving FAZZ and Hector first dibs - Anything else I'll advertise here. I'm not asking for money to cover my purchases, just the postage. I want out - Get away from these cunts. I'll stick to models by Bandai

Ha ha ha ha!  I know this dance.  You'll chuck it in, get rid of your minis...and you'll regret the move in six months, and start rebuilding your armies again from scratch.

 

I know, because I've been there.

 

If you're intent on getting rid of your stuff, I'll absolutely, happily take them off your hands (DM me here, or on FB), but yeah...be sure you want to get rid of them.

 

I'm actually painting some minis for the first time in forever.  Found a small pile of Orks in my box, and needed a change from Marines.  Just couldn't muster the enthusiasm to paint another shoulder pad...

I've been at this point since GW took away my looted wagons. I know, I know - It's such a fucking moot point in the grand scale, and I know it's sad, but looted vehicles is what got me hooked in the game. Back in 2nd ed, if you had blood axes, you could take looted tanks - I loved that shit

 

But for years now, I've been denied that simple little please of mine. Oh sure, I can kit bash and shit, but all my work was still rule compliant - So to be fucking ignored for so long now, I'm just.... meh

 

I have a fuckload of orks and Tau, and some 'nids - I haven't touched my 40k stuff in *years* tbh - I just don't have the space. What I'm working on atm though, omg - it makes me hard - I'll list below the shit the parts Ive ordered for my current project

 

And yeah, I think you're right, but I'm going to take this chance for a clean out. A lot of my models are old - as in, really old: Let me be, weird for a moment:

 

Do you know any kids, or something like that, struggling to get in to the hobby? Someone who could really benefit from some free models? I admit - I acted out of passion last night. But hey - We're here now. Do we know anyone who could use a leg up?

This is what I'm working on atm: MG RX-93-V2 Ver.Ka

In addition to that, I have an optional HWS (Limited edition), which looks like this (The tits, the skirt, the legs, the shield and gun):

latest?cb=20190802150358

 

Then, I have a detailed photo etch kit to apply, as well as green LEDs in key areas

 

So, I am still with the main focus of which I started this hobby - Modeling, painting, that shit. Ill keep my Snikrot, and maybe my looted Hammerhead, but yeah - Everything else can go. Ill dig everything up and take photos. Is David (Hollingworth ?) still around? I think he expressed a kind of interest in my AngelFish a while ago - Will forward it on if hes still around and keen

I've got a mate who's getting his kids into gaming, but he's already got about a gazillion points in Orks and Space Marines.

Can't think of anyone that really *needs* any minis, but like I say, if you genuinely want to clean house, I'll happily buy what you feel like offloading.

I was painting my tiny, tiny Ork army yesterday (literally 11 boyz, and 5 Nobs).  First time I've painted in *years*, and it felt gooooooooood.

So, if you've got Orks or Tau, I could definitely bolster my ranks with them. 

I've kinda drifted from 40K proper, and slid into Kill Team.  Smaller armies, smaller games...can get a few rounds in in a single arvo.

I do miss a whole room full of terrain, and huge armies facing off...but I haven't got the time/money/patience for it.

Also, that Gundam kit looks the fucking tits, man!

Mine are all in boxes, in the cupboard.  Never went down the path of painting/stenciling them, so they're just the raw plastic, with stickers on.

I know a few people that go all out on them, though.

A mate of mine recently finished this gargantuan project.
