Its funny I've been obsessed with 40k lore!! I mean I sort of knew the basic idea but diving deeper has been fun, great podcast and YouTube stuff out there.

Iíve always enjoyed playing fantasy over 40k but the lore and background of 40k to me is far more facinating and compelling.

The landing terrain. Where in hell did I put it?
You have made me remember it except for what I did with it. When I think about it, I have the tyranid army from that box as well mixed in with the tyrannies from one of my sons old army. Some day...some day.

Nice collection. For the first time I'm really getting into 40K  :::cheers:::

Thanks! Iím looking forward to getting the new rule book and codexes. I just have the 3 books that include all the armies when they first changed but if I can turn things around Iíll reward myself with the new material.

Minimal contribution but itís something. First painted model in a few months at least. I think he was a special objective in one of the starter games.

And that chaos scum was bashed about like a straw man. As it should be.

Game turn 3+4
The boats make it to their landing zones (most of them) and the cambleton rams the southern caisson with only a few crew left and an entire demo squad wiped out. Some of the dockside guns are destroyed and out of action as well as a searchlight.
1 torpedo boat goes on fire then sinks before it can unload its torpedos in the lock gates in zone z.
Assault squads and demo teams head for their objectives while the activation of stosstruppen goes up a notch.

Jazz has been a super hard one for me to get used to or understand. Davis and especially Coltrane are two I definitely have time for. Coltraneís story s as tragic as it is insiping.
Edit: I think I got Charlie Parker and Coltrane mixed. Both had heroin problems but Charlie didnít make it. His music is also enjoyable and I add him to my small list of jazz favorites.
Piazolla and gardot are not familiar but will look up

Vivaldi ...


Vivaldi is my favorite classical composer. Utterly brilliant.

This isnít miniature gaming but it is historical and about war. In a bid to get reinthused (hopefully just the summer duldrums) I dug out and old solitaire board game that I got in 1987. It is the historical Raid on St Nazaire with a flotilla of bosts loaded with commandos and fire teams that raid the port in order to put it out of service as a port for u-boats. You act as the British and your actions set off activation levels as the port defences wake up to whatís happening. Floodlights, dockside defence guns and stosstruppen start to make life difficult. Iíve played it 3 times and yet to achieve a victory. In RL they achieved about 54 vp but in the game a 70 is the target.

Initial game set up :

Game turn 2

I have a crapload of plexiglass at work of various sizes. Rivers on the way.

How much fun is that?!
I started in 6ed and that felt completely natural. Excellent report. Back then the only BRís I had to read was in the WD. Did not know of online community at the time.

It was that random craziness that could take hold that was the charm of the O&G.
I have to admit though, thatís a lot to deal with by turn 2 😺

Quote GP: the lesson of doing what the doctors call for so that maybe I'll make it to 100 anyway.

Indeed, sir!
That will give you time to finish the 6 mounted crossbowmen as well 😺
Sorry, couldnít resist.

On the serious note of listening to doctors advice. It has taken almost my lifetime to agree with that. Good advice.
