A Flaw with The Psychic Phase!

Nick speaking,

Well, maybe not a flaw from Games Workshop's point of view, as the the Psychic phase works absolutely fine when you are playing one on one or two on two games, but what about when you are playing three or four way games?


It's fair to say that GW have taken multi player games into account before, with missions like 'Battle at the Camp', but has GW now totally abandoned this type of fun play in 7th Edition? Or did they just forget about it! I play four way games quite often with my buddies, and we always have a blast with them, but we are now having trouble working out the best way to do Deny the Witch?

As it stands, player A rolls a dice and adds that number to his mastery level, as do all the other players, but who Denies the Witch? Surely, all players cannot, as that will just overpower the Psyker! OK, so lets say only the player that the target unit's army is from can Deny, well yes, that's fine, but what if it is a blessing? Maybe the closest person to play A?

Maybe the highest Mastery level should roll the Deny roll, but then he may try to not dispel a power if he knows it may benefit him somehow! What about going back to the old ways of 6th Edition as an option, where you cannot Deny a blessing, but have Perils on double ones and sixes again, and maybe using the current Perils chart?

Have any of you come across this problem? What are your 'House Rules' to solve it?

HELP for HEROES Ultramarine Bikes Conversions #2

Nick speaking,

Continuing on with the Bike Squad I am doing for the HELP for HEROES Charity Army, and I have done the next three conversions. Once again, I have gone all out on the poses with these last bikes, and I am planning on some sort of freehand on the banner that represents something to do with the HELP for HEROES charity. Hopefully it will be a nice touch for the army when it's all done. Don't forget that tickets are now on sale and it is a worldwide raffle. Please feel free to let me know what you think of my conversions...

Unbound, Formations and Allies, it's an Adventure!

Nick speaking,

Call me old school or what, but so far I really haven't got behind the whole Unbound, Formations and Allies thing that 7th Edition offers, mainly due to my small gaming group of friends who do not have a plethora amount of models to play with, and have a limited amount of time and money to spend on making new models, but what the hell, I think it is time to embraced the adventure... 


So, stepping out side my door into the big wide world, and I think I want to start with Unbound. I know that there are plenty of options with detachments and Allies to avoid Unbound, but I am thinking of a particular army of mine that I think would really work in the Unbound format, my sixty strong Flayed One Army, which I will post about in the near future.

For now though, I would love to know how are you finding all the new ways of making armies these days? Has it affected your gaming group? Are you finding yourself needing a load of new toys to keep up with everyone? What impact has it had on your gaming experience?

Tyranid Time #3

Nick speaking,

Another quick update on the first batch of Nids I am painting towards getting my entire unpainted force done before 2015, and I have now gone in with the second layer of yellow on the bodies and base coated all of their teeth, yes all 1,264 of them! The next couple of layers will hopefully make the yellow pop, so watch out for the next update...

Time for a quick update on the first batch of Nids I am painting towards getting my entire unpainted force done before 2015, and after 18 hours of painting I finally have the first base coat of yellow down. Pretty happy how the paint is bringing the Broodlord conversion together as well...

HELP for HEROES Ultramarine Bikes

Nick speaking,

I know I have just set myself the task of finishing my Tyranids by the end of the year, which works out to be about 2k of Nids, but I also need to get my Ultramarine bike squad done for the HELP for HEROES Charity army we are raffling off. I plan to do a few special conversion for my bikes, with some wacky poses and I can't wait to get them started, so keep an eye out for the updates soon. In the meantime, why not go over and donate a few quid for some tickets to have a chance of winning what will surely be an amazing Ultramarine army!

Tyranid Time #1

Nick speaking,

OK, so the end of 2014 is fast approaching, and I have my eyes set on painting my Space Wolves in 2015. I am currently painting up my Eldar and Tyranid army, and would really like to get one of them finished before I start painting up the Wolves, so lets have a look at my Nids and the left over units that I still have to paint!


Right, after getting them all out of my case I have these to paint...

8x Shrike
20x Genestealers
57x Guants/Gants
17x Gargoyles
1x Trygon
4x Pods as terrain
3x Lictor
6x Ravanar
3x Hive Tyrant Guard

First I thought I would get the little bugs out of the way, I had to get a lot of them prepared, taking off the mould lines and repairing a few, as most of these Nids were second hand. I did a quick Broodlord conversion with one of the Genestealers, and got all seventy nine of the minis primes, batch one ready to go!
