In case you were wondering, some of the parts to make my groovy Rough Riders were sculpted by Rob at Curious Constructs.

Report lost!

In 40k, astropathy is the only means of fast interstellar communication available to the Imperium. It’s a good service but increasingly messages are often distorted, delayed, or lost altogether in transmission. It’s just that the Adeptus Astra Telepathica isn’t training astropaths like they use to!

I wrote up a battle report for the first battle of the new campaign! Yey! But somehow I deleted (or saved over it) and it is lost. Noo! Rest assured I will have a serf come up with a new report soon.

In the meantime, two messages did make it across the warp! First, a list of those that fell in the Defence of Complex 23 arrived to be craved on a memorial wall. This is situated on the top left of my blog and will record the sacrifice of the Guardsmen undertaking the Campaign on Hotel Delta Eight Fifty Five Twelve B.

An extract from the Personal Journal of Commissar-General Marwood

The new campaign rules are sorted, a new army is built, but before we go to war it would be good to find out a bit about the heros that will lead the way...

A personal chronology of events leading up to the destruction of the Imperial Navy Frigates Hansa and Hahndorfcommencing the battle on Hotel Delta Eight Fifty Five Twelve B.

Day 31:
Sitting in my cabin on the Barbarossa – I managed a minute to myself.  Finally, this is the last leg of my trip. All I have to do now is rendezvous with the three frigates; the Hansa, Heidelberg and Hahndorf, as they prepare to leave the Reductus Sector, conduct one last DPPR whilst on board the Hansa, and then enjoy the ride to Praetoria. From there, it is a short jump back to Bakka, back to comfort, back to my glum desk – just the way I like it. This trip hasn’t been particularly rotten; I only had to administrate the ‘cleansing’ of two Psykers. Cleansing. After all these years I’m prepared to say it; I murder people. It’s my job. ‘Commissar-General’? What they really mean is ‘Chief Executioner’.

Revitalising my hobby: Part 2, A New Army
For my upcoming campaign I wanted to build an army that I had been thinking about for a while. I first played around with these guys back in October last year but didn't get too far. Well this month I got the first lot built and even finished one tank!

Revitalising my hobby: Part 1 Rules for a Campaign

The thing about having regular gaming buddies is that they requires you to game with them regularly.  It is very easy to keep putting other things first and continuously put games off. If you keep doing this eventually you find yourself with no gaming partners. Of course you can pop down to your local GW or club and try and get a game in, but A) there is no certainty that you will find someone and B) that someone may or may not be a person that will give you the sort of fun game that you are looking for. So I have decided that even though things are very busy right now, I will specifically put time aside to game and seek out other gamers like me who like fluffy battles and fun games rather then tournament uber-list building and two dimensional battles.
