Orks vs Space Marines

Finally Epic Armageddon is back in all its glorious 6 mm scale.

A nice 2500 pts battle played today at club between me and Rob. A classic Orks vs Space marines with an overwhelming victory of the Emperor finest.

A very bad performance of the Orks which never managed to control the game, constantly under pressure by the shooting of the Marines and with the Stompa mob too slow to enter in the game on time to make the difference. Rob played very well by reacting on the Orks initial advance with sheer firepower, helped by the excellent Warhounds and an incredibly tough Assault detachment that managed to break the Orks big warband and kill the Warlord.

At the end of turn 3 everything was already lost for the Orks.

Fantastic game and great community which still update the rules. Epic Armageddon rules and Army list can be downloaded fro free here:

GW back with Specialist Games….is this a sign?

Apparently GW is bringing back Specialist Games:

I will be honest here, I think this is a desperate move of a company who detroyed, in the last decade, all the wargaming comunity they had, it feels just wrong.

I love most of these games, but GW do not produce games anymore and other companies have filled that void. Perhaps they are realising the huge mistakes they have done in the last decade and trying to fix them, sorry, too late for me (and, I guess, for a lot other players…)

But I’m happy for those whom will enjoy!

(and….I might buy some Epic Armageddon miniatures, if they still make them in 6mm, but a voice inside me is telling me it will be 15mm….who knows? Maybe Jervis?)

The Great Wargaming Survey

 

From one of the finest Wargames Magazine:

We are very curious people (probably in more senses of the word, but that doesn’t matter now). Mostly, we are curious about this hobby and the people in it. There is always much debate about the health of the hobby, the age of the average wargamer, which scale or size of miniature is better and endless other questions. Wargames, Soldiers & Strategy, being a team of intrepid people, decided to solve at least some of these debates by way of the Great Wargaming Survey. And YOU are cordially invited to take part.

Joking aside, this won’t take long (5-10 minutes), it’s entirely anonymous, it’s nothing every attempted on this scale and best of all, you’ll have a chance at winning some great prizes. What’s not to like? Just click here and spend a few happy minutes contemplating your favorite pastime.
