Decemb-uary Painting Challenge Final Reveal

Having read Azazel’s latest Decemb-uary post, which is chock-full of fantastic paint jobs and brilliant conversions by fellow participants, I was inspired to get myself into gear and finish off the final touches to my dreadnought. Without further ado I present venerable-brother Dracorus… I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Azazel for coming upContinue reading “Decemb-uary Painting Challenge Final Reveal”

Decemb-uary painting update #1

I’m a few days into my Decemb-uary painting challenge and I have been pushing myself to get on with painting my space marine Dreadnought. It’s funny how a couple of weeks away from the painting desk and I seem tentative to put brush to miniature, so I have been taking my time with it, slowContinue reading “Decemb-uary painting update #1”

Painting Decemb-uary 2017-18

As I have most definitely been in gaming mode during most of December, I needed something to get my head back into a little bit of painting. Fortunately Azazel has come to the rescue with his Decemb-uary Painting Challenge. This Decemb-uary I shall be mostly painting an Iron Eagles dreadnought… This particular model is actuallyContinue reading “Painting Decemb-uary 2017-18”

Space Crusade – Solo Recon

Recon Having some time on my hands on friday evening, I decided to set up and play a solo variation of Space Crusade, using a few rules I had devised to supplement the core rules. After securing a bridge-head (mission #1) upon the Ork hulk, the Iron Eagles sent a task force, lead by venerableContinue reading “Space Crusade – Solo Recon”

Mission 1 – Bridge-head

The Space Crusade campaign that I have been planning for sometime was kicked off recently, when I got together with Graham to play the first mission in the ‘cleansing of Spatium Turci’. Graham took command of the intrepid space marines task force whilst I got in touch with my inner greenskin as Warboss Tinpot toContinue reading “Mission 1 – Bridge-head”

Going Solo – Space Crusade Campaign

Whilst me and my fiance are in limbo with the purchase of our new house, I have been living at her’s with my painting paraphernalia lying in storage. I have not been entirely idle though, as I have been assembling my recently purchased space marines for Space Crusade. I’ve also been putting a lot ofContinue reading “Going Solo – Space Crusade Campaign”

Space Crusaders

I have mentioned several times in the past of my fondness for the old board game Space Crusade. I have played many hours using both the core game and even making up my own scenarios, including rules for all sorts of other miniatures in my collection. I also have a copy of the White DwarfContinue reading “Space Crusaders”

board of wargaming?

Over the past few months I have found myself wandering away from table-top wargames, toward miniature board-games. This has been due mainly to the ease by which games like Space Crusade can be set-up and played, within a single gaming session, rather than the two or three sessions it takes to play out Epic battles. I have made mention beforeContinue reading “board of wargaming?”

Embarking on an Epic Space Crusade

The ever dastardly Graham and I play many different games set in the world of Warhammer 40k, and for someone as tactically challenged as myself, simply keeping a tally of wins and losses holds little interest. Instead, we combine the multitude of different games into a flowing narrative campaign. This stops things from getting stale and letsContinue reading “Embarking on an Epic Space Crusade”

SPACE CRUSADE

That most venerable game from the 1980/90’s ‘Space Crusade’, which was a joint project by MB Games and Games Workshop, is one of which I am most fond and a fair chunk of my gaming time has been dedicated to it over the past year or so. I am a relative new-comer to actually playing this game as I had never done so until aContinue reading “SPACE CRUSADE”
