Campaign start

We have just started a new campaign at Ready-to-run-models in East Grinstead using the new planetary empires tiles from Games Workshop.

I decided to use my Daemon Hunters army with my new Valk model. I was against Orks, I just won it was down to me killing one biker between a in and a draw.

I think the campaign could be a lot of fun especially when we chuck in some Planet Strike and Apocalypse games!

Ttan - Part 1

Ok ive started the titan my wife gave me for my birthday (love you)

Its quite a job! To get the pose right and it to stick in the right place is no small feet! But im getting there!

The only down side is Forgeworld sent me the wrong arm for the left side, they say it will be two weeks to cast up the new one :(

Ulthwe winning run!

Ok ive finished play testing my Eldar now and after 6 games im happy with the army make up at 1000pts. I will now push on and paint that before I add the next 500pts.

The addition to the 750 shown in the post below is a wave serpent and 5 pathfinders.

The pathfinders took out a 5 man terminator squad in 2 turns on my last game they are a great little unit as they are still a troop choice!

I will post more pics soon as I try and get more painted over the weekend.

Little Howard

At Ready-to-run-models in East Grinstead we are obsessed with the adventures of little Howard.

The other day I sent a copy of the photo in my last post to the creator of the show Howard Read.

Here is his responce:

Hi Frazer and all

Thank you very much for the honour of allowing myself and Little
Howard to
partake in your war games, and in particular in such an epic
struggle as
the Battle of Helms Deep. Little Howard has always thought of
himself in
the role of Aragorn. I particuarly like your choice of picture, both
snarling and waving, taken from my 2002 Edinburgh Show picture I

This has entertained me hugely. Hope you, yours and your trolls and
are all well. Polish my Mithryl coat for me

Howard (Big)

Helms Deep!

Adrian, Craig and myself from Ready-to-run-models in East Grinstead, bought this little beauty from ebay over the weekend. 

Its a 4'x4' table of the famous Helms deep featured in the Lord of the Rings -The Two Towers.

This table has fully hinged doors and flaps along with a moving gantry. Its all scaled perfectly for the Games Workshop LOtR range.

Here are some pics to show it off.

Little Howard says you shall not pass!!!

Eldar Ulthwe

Ok I wanted to start a small army to play with at Ready-to-Run-Models in East Grinstead. There is a lot of choice from the Gamesworkshop 40K range, but I finally decided on Eldar.

Ever since the Eye of Terror campaine came out ive like the look of Ulthwe Eldar so I thought i would give it a go and do a 750pt army.

Here is my first few models.
