Orktober: Givin' my Wagon a Fixin'

So the last of the Runts have been fished out of the engine cowling, the Grots have used up the last of the paint squigs and famed Mekaniak, Nazzkar Kabrettah has hung up his oily rags. 

I'm finally done with painting this behemoth of a Battle Wagon!

Orktober: Truck or Treat!

Ah 'tis that hallowed time of year once more where all things green of skin are celebrated - Orktober! This year I have been distracted from all my other projects (the resurrection of Rigg's Shrine for next year's BOYL being the big one!) by Space Orks.

Having been dragging my hobby heels since August, it took one of Darrin Stephen's friendly competitions on the Emporium of Rogue Dreams Facebook group to pull my finger out. Great to see him and Thomas Grove at this year's BOYL by the way - some of you may remember me facing off against Thomas in a remote game hosted by Dreamfish and written up by Gaj some years ago!

BOYL 2017: Space Fleet Spectacular

Bloody hell - how did it get to be October?!

And I never got round to finishing off the last of my BOYL 2017 reports! Apologies to my most excellent gaming buddies Paul (of Golgfag fame on the Oldhammer forum) and JB Asslessman (Crosser of Channels and painter extroadinaire!) with whom I shared that last balmy Sunday afternoon engaged in a little fleet action!

The Only Good Bug is a Dead Bug... WH40K 2nd ed at BOYL 2017

Another day, another planet, another futile struggle against the overwhelming hordes of the Hive Mind!

Told you there was a bit of a theme for me this year!

It's an ugly planet - a Bug Planet!

As you will see from the next few posts there was a bit of a running theme for me at BOYL 2017 - Bugs!

Is this going to be a stand-up fight, sir, or another bug hunt? Space Fleet @ BOYL 2017

On to the Saturday at BOYL whihc kicked off very pleasurably with a game of Space Fleet with my old pal Paul. You may remember we tangled in the depths of space last year - a game which saw Paul masterfully commanding the Imperial fleet to victory!

This time Paul brought along a very impressive Tyranid fleet (and Eldar too - more of which in a later post) so I decided to defend the Imperium this time.

BOYL 2017 - The Trolltooth Wars

The Trolltooth Wars slowly rumble on! In fact it's been two years since myself and Paul played the first scenario - the Hill Goblin ambush on Marr's Cunnelwort caravan that started the war in the first place.
