There might not be a few more for a couple of days/weeks. I'm moving house next week and everything is being put into boxes - I've managed to keep my fiancée away from that particular part of the office...thus far and I don't want to leave it too late and let all my hard work get hurled in with the crockery! Not that she'd ever do that...

At E3 this afternoon there was a surprise announcement of a 40k MMO for next gen consoles and PC. The name? Etetnal Crusade.
It seems that you chose 1 of 4 races (SM, CSM, Ork and Eldar) and have to battle for territory on a planet. Sadly it's not going to be here for a while - 2015 to be exact...

Having finally got the hang of my airbrush and with some tips picked up from the HH Weekender, I have been churning through my armies getting them based, layered and highlighted.Yesterday was a Dark Angels binge, the day before that was my Mymeara style Eldar, the previous Weekend had been Emperor's Children (and Fulgrim)...today, finally, I managed to get round to my Ultramarines.

He has been sat on my shelf for a while now but having one the local conversion competition for my Eikos Lamiad kit bash I got to choose next month's theme - I went with Black Library and set to work. I'm pretty chuffed with the results, I used some of the tips I picked up at the HH Weekender (especially on the Plague Bearer head) and it all seems to come together nicely. Hopefully I'll get another win to add to the 1st place I got in April for my Tau Commander, the 1st for Lamiad and a 3rd place for my High Elf Sun Mage.

At the Horus Heresy Weekender there was an open game in the evening called 'Last Man Standing'. I missed it because it was late on and I wasn't staying at the hotel but I took a snap of the rules (see below). It's basically a death match between X number of players, each of whom takes control of a single basic Tactical Space Marine from one of the founding legions. They can be equipped with any of the optional s available to a tactical marine (including heavy/special but not sergeant only upgrades like plasma pistols).
The choice of legion is important because each one has a different effect on the basic stat line, for instance Death Guard get +1 Toughness whilst Space Wolves get +1 Attack. So think carefully about your style of play before you enter the arena!
