Clad in plate of steel, the Chaos Warriors (Heroquest)

I've been thinking quite a bit lately about something we can all relate to, something that is unquestionably, inescapably… Chaos!

I am referring, of course, to our great national pastime - merciless combat. Or so it had been. That's right, wasteland dwellers. Before we were devastated by heroic deeds, each lair had its OWN professional combat team. Imagine, a perfect, rain soaked day. The sun is enveloped by darkness and misery. And on the horizon, they appear, like knights of yore, armed with axes of hate and malice.

"Erm, guys the camera is this way!"

Their name? The Chaos Warriors. Their purpose? To make you, dear reader, revel in the joys of savagery and blood, if only for an afternoon.

Wargear cards of 2nd Edition 40k (Orks) - An Investigation

I'm a big fan of 2nd Edition 40k, it was the edition I grew up on and the one I still like to have the occasional battle or just paint up a miniature or two.

Of course as something I regard with fondness this means I am always reading up on any new battle reports or other blogs about the subject. One such subject that isn't addressed a lot is the merits of the various wargear cards you could equip characters. Now I won't go over every wargear card as I will be here all day, but I am going to do a small review of the Ork specific wargear in this post.

Scenario Battle idea 40k

In a lot of ways I don't actually game with my miniatures very much any more. Sure a round of Necromunda gets organised occasionally but that's about it. It's more a painting hobby for me as I haven't actually played a solid game of Warhammer 40k in a long time. While digging through some minis for a particular project I stumbled across a 2nd edition Eldar Fire Dragon.
Nothing too remarkable about the meltagun aspect warriors but they did spark a memory of some scenarios and ideas I had back then that might be worth sharing. The main scenario it reminded me of was something I shall call Defence of The Sacred Waterway.

Movie Review - The Deadly Mantis (1957)

The Deadly Mantis (1957) 

A film featuring a giant fictional prehistoric monster causing mayhem to the people of earth. Oh how I love these old school films where something is disturbed and then decides to attack the nearest populated area. So In this case we have a 200ft tall Praying Mantis.
