What a month its been between posts! I get the feeling that the lead up to and aftermath of the Western Australian 40k masters event each year is going to see a lull in posting just prior and just after – its a very busy period and we need a week to recover! Add… More We’re Back! Necrons (pun intended!!)
I have been pretty open about the amount of terrain we are trying to plow through in order to ensure that the tables are the best quality possible for 2016 Masters. Sadly M seriously dislikes building terrain, so while I have been strongly suggesting spreading this work over 9 months, instead he decided to leave… More Building a table of terrain!
We have hit the last section of the army list – the Corsair Heavy Support. We get more craftworld style vehicles again with a few twists… lets take a look… Corsair Balestrike Squad The Corsair version of the Devastator Squad or the Dark Eldar Scourges, the Balestrikes are perhaps the best of both worlds. They… More FW Eldar Corsair Army Review – part 7 – Heavy Support
If there was a force organization slot that epitomized the Eldar, Fast Attack would be it. The Corsairs are no different in that regard, though the speed of the rest of the force means these choices have to be very Fast Attack like indeed! Corsair Vyper Much like the previous vehicles in the list, the… More FW Eldar Corsair Army Review – part 6 – Fast Attack
We are going to get stuck into the Corsair elites in just a second, but thought it was probably prudent to take a quick look at the only Lord of War available to the corsairs first – the Vampire Raider! Corsair Lord of War – Vampire Raider The space marines have their thunderhawk (and soon… More FW Eldar Corsair Army Review – part 5 – Elites
(Written at 10pm Sunday 7th August after the Mixed Doubles event) Our Winners I don’t know where to even start with this! As a spectator (non playing event organiser) watching 40k is horrendous. Everyone is so busy concentrating that no one looks like they are enjoying themselves. We work really hard behind the scenes to… More The wrap up – Mixed doubles, AKA a great big hug.
Sportsmanship Scores. They are a tricky one. Not only are they totally subjective but there is absolutely no way to rank everyone in the room based on sports so for that reason no one ever comes last for sports!! You may be unranked, but never last! Those of you who have attended our events know… More Sportsmanship scores – how we calculate sports for our 40k events.
Objective Secured visits Warhammer World! After an hastily arranged trip to the UK recently, me and a good friend Genghiz got to make a pilgrimage to the home of Games Workshop in Nottingham. Tucked away on a small industrial estate Warhammer World is just a small part of the massive complex that makes up GW’s base… More Warhammer World – Objective Secured!
Like any army, Corsair Troops form the back bone of the force on the table. They claim objectives, provide the mass of the army and fill gaps in the rest of the army specialists… let’s look at them in more depth. Reaver Band If Corsair troops have ‘standard’ units – Reavers are them. With a… More FW Eldar Corsair Army Review – part 4 – Troops
Our WA people hopefully know that we have the Mixed Doubles event happening this weekend (Sunday 7th August). It all started at Masters last year when there was only one female player yet there was a heap of girls that came along to watch who paint and play but won’t play in tournaments because they… More Mixed Doubles AKA a great big hug!
