Playing Descent at October's FNG

Review of Descent Second Edition
That's a lot of action to pack in to such a little little dungeon

Having had our second night of dungeon delving using the new Descent Second edition rules I feel confident to give it a review.

Preparing for FNG!

Just to get you in the mood for Descent:

Holed up in the Innkeeper's personnel cellar in the Mucky Pup Inn, deep in the heart of Aryn, the four friends stared at each other through the purple haze of the Thraka Weed that filed the air. A prevent silence hung between them, none willing to entice the wrath of the largest of the group by reminding him it was his turn. His calloused, scared fingers stroked a greying moustache as he ruminated over his next play.

Painting using new brushes from Rosemary & Co.

Charlie gave me the nod that a new manufacturer of brushes was being touted by some accomplished painters on the internet, so I thought I'd give them a try! But are they actually any better than the old staple the GW standard brush?

Killing Gladiators in Cardiff!

Will and I took a trip to Cardiff to visit Ian and pop to the home of the Viet Taff, Firestorm Games. Here we found bargains galore but what caught our attention most was the new Spartacus game and the Quarmageddon expansion for Quarriors!

Reading The Crimson Fist

The Crimson Fist
114 page short story, published in Shadows of Treachery 

Not being a major fan of the Imperial Fists I wasn't going into this story with a great amount of confidence. But it's got Primarchs and space ship battles so what could go wrong?

Doing a 6 man home sealed of RETURN TO RAVNICA

So, despite some last minute issues with product (that involved a 90 odd minute round trip to Rayleigh to purchase another box) we managed to go ahead with our home release event Friday.

Taking part we had:
Me, Anthony, Will, Nic, Jake and Roy.

We took 6 packs each and got crack-a-lackin!

Just received this model after someone kindly ordered it for me at Games Day.

As with other Forge World models it needed cleaning up before it could be assembled. This didn't take too long though there was a lot of flashing on the rider.

Assembly was a breeze all the parts fitted together cleanly and easily. I only had to check online to see which way the wings attached. I do think that it would be good for these to come with a diagram for assembly.

I have left off the front mounted bolt gun as I will be using this model for 40k in my bike army and want to model two bolters on the front for the twin linked. The rider will be changed to more fit in with my commander.

Updates will come soon.

Playing Will's first game of 6th Edition

Upon the world of G'lesent Four the Adetus Biologicus have developed a new weapon against the Tyranid threat. Unfortunately their experiments with the Zoanthrope gene code has refused to stay captive and has drawn it's masters to the world. Can the Imperial army hold back the Xenos horde or will Hive Fleet Formorian reclaim what was lost?

Wills's first game of 6th, can his uncanny luck with his Tyranids continue or will his first game herald a new dawn for the rest of E.L.F's 40k players?
