Shoutout - The 30k Channel on Youtube

Hey dudes, I just wanted to link to The 30k Channel on YouTube: and on Facebook:

It's really weird but if you do a search for them in google looking for their YouTube page it doesn't come up with anything so I thought I would do this in an attempt to improve their SEO a bit and give a shoutout to their operation.

I really like the three battle reports they have put out so far, the style of gaming and banter they have is akin to my group (though a little cleaner language), the production is fantastic, the armies the 6 guys featured bring all look great, the tables look amazing and the games are played pretty well.

I haven't found a series of 30k batreps that didn't make me cringe eventually and tap out but I feel these guys have nailed it. I also like the third guy as a cameraman and narrator a lot when it happens.

The biggest cringe I would have to say when it comes to other 30k battle reports is when one guy has the camera, calls the other guys moves for him and all of the values required on the rolls and shit.. It just crushes me, there's no interaction and unless that guy running the jam is 100% on it, the lack of banter and perspective just makes me die internally when they get something wrong or give bad advice to the other player.

Anyway these cats don't do that, very personable, lots of back and forth and the games all seem to be a genuinely good contest, no one is getting steam rolled on camera.

Acastus Knight Porphyrion COMPLETED!!!!!

Acacstus Knight Porhpyrion, easily the biggest and most complex kit build and paint job I have ever done for a gaming miniature. I'm really happy with the result but the 60 hrs I spent on getting it finished kinda baked my noodle. I have no idea how the titan painters get through it! Anyway here are some studio shots, let me know what you think!

Horus Heresy Event Pics - Skulls October 2018

Hey my dudes,

I played at our bi-anually held 'Skulls' Heresy event on the weekend, I didn't get a whole heap of pictures as I always seemed to go full time in my games while we rolled dice and had a good fun bit of banter. It was the most low key iteration of this event I've been to so far, players were largely allowed to choose their game style, points level and table theme and just get after it each round.

I ended up playing a great 1500pt opening game against one of the young bloods, Pat. He was running Iron Hands and the scenario basically had my forces ambushed and deployed in a random fashion with a D6 sending them to one of six 24" squares. I managed to intercept a few things at the right time to give me some breathing room but I had a really hard time hurting his troops and walkers with the -1 to the shooting strength of my weapons. I ended up running away with the victory though in the end, having so many troops who were able to capture the objectives on…

Gaslands Tabletop Game - Hot Wheels Conversion 1 WIP

Hey Dudes,
Gaslands, a post-apocalyptic car combat miniatures game where you take Hot Wheels, or Matchbox 1/64 scale toy cars and convert/paint them up for the theme. I heard about it on the Secret Cabal Gaming Podcast and checked out a bit of the action on Instagram and was really blown away by the concept and the review the boys gave the game. I bought the rules and had a read through and I loved the template style movement, the gear sections which are like phases for each round are a really cool system and the combat seems good. 
I got this monster truck and maybe 10 cars, I didn't want to go too hardcore on the guns and shit just yet, I also figure a monster truck should probably be about ripping around running shit down and doing jumps so I've gone with extra armour and maybe a few hidden upgrades like nitrous. I'll paint two teams up and get a battlefield terrain setup done so I can try and convince my mates to get into it and see where it goes.
As the Secret Cabal …
