Army Showcase - Elysian Drop Troops 2017

Along with my beloved Kriegy Boys my Elysians also flew the nest. They were fortunate enough to have a fleet of flyers and an armed escort to travel with though.

I put this army together during 5th edition 40K. I tried them out a few times in 6th edition but it just wasn't the same! And the moans and groans of your opponent when you turn up with 6 outflanking flyers wore a bit thin as well...Sadly they got relegated to the display cabinet for the last years of their time with me, but they gave me many many fun and victorious games in 5th edition 40K! There is actually a Tarous Assault vehicle, a Company Command Squad and a Scanner Squad to add to this showcase, but i have mislaid them in the move (or they have disserted!) Never mind.

So here they are for the last time, flying away victorious into the distance!

Plugging Away

Well it's been a little while since my last blog update, but I've not been idile. I've completed my Dark Age Force, ready for the tournament at the end of the month. I've only played the one game so I'm not expecting to do fantastic, but I should come away with a far better understanding of the game, and it's a great excuse for a whole day of gaming.
The week after I've got an infinity tournament lined up. I'll be travelling up with Luke to the uk games expo where we will get to compete with some of the more experienced players. As there are no local veteran players, I'm hoping to see stuff I don't normally see and learn some new tricks. If I remember I'll take some pics whilst I'm there

Army Showcase - Death Korps of Krieg 2017

As some of you may be aware, i parted with my long term army of Death Korps a few weeks ago. I started collecting these guys around 2009 so they have been with me for a long time (longer than any car i've owned!!) Needs must i'm afraid, but a good friend of mine took them off my hands, so i'm sure they have gone to a good home. It was admittedly very tough to part with my Kriegy Boys, they had a very special place in my collection. Bless them, they never won a single game! Not one...ever!! Dispite that they were still my favorite!

I did takes some photos for eBay, which are much better than the origional ones i took here. So i'll use them to showcase them for the final time! Wave lads!!
