Ramblings

Yet More Small Distractions

Just when you thought I couldn’t possibly have more Space Marine armies, up I pop with number 4 and this time it’s Orks the Orks in 2nd edition had some of the funkiest miniatures in the game and loads of fabulous rules, I was especially a fan of the Mekboys vehicles as they could cause carnage,

Happy 20th Birthday NetEpic

It’s not a secret that I am a huge fan of the Space Marine (Epic) game that GW released in the late 80’s and early 90’s, in fact I’ve blogged about on numerous occasions (See here) In 1997 GW decided to release a new version of Space Marine to replace the classic 2nd edition game

Even More Small Distractions

it’s another day and another Epic (Space Marine) army, yes it’s the Imperial Guard I went a bit mad with my guard army and its been the one that I kept adding too even after I stopped playing the game. I don’t know why there just seemed to be another unit I could add in

More Small Distractions

RIP Nick Hawkins – Peterborough Wargames Club

I’ve just heard the sad news that Nick Hawkins has passed away. Nick helped me with the Flintloque army lists that are in my Downloads area, and even though we never met he was someone I had nothing but respect for. my thoughts are with his family and friends at this difficult time Mike Whitaker has

The End of an Era

This week saw the ending of a chapter in my wargaming life when I received my copy of Miniature Wargames with Battlegames issue 402. Issue 402 is the last one to be edited by that bastion of the UK wargaming scene Mr Henry Hyde and I have to admit to being very sad about it
