Battle Report: Warhammer 40k 2th Edition – Blood Angels vs Orks (1000 points)

Few weeks ago I’ve contacted Warburton –  blogger  from Adelaide, Australia, owner of classic40k.wordpress.com. As I had plan to visit Adelaide during my Australia holidays, I took this opportunity and we arranged a meeting to have a chat, and what was probably most exciting and important, to play the game. We were thinking about Blood Bowl, Necromunda and Warhammer 40k 2 edition. To be honest WH40k was most appealing game for me, so we decided to have a go in this one. Warhammer 40000 2nd edition was my first, so I couldn’t miss that chance to play a battle here down under. It would be experience, I never forget. We agreed that we will play 1000 points battle. Orks vs Blood Angels. I took Blood Angels side and Warburton – Orks. In my travelling boxes I have one Tactical squad, Terminators and Sanguinary Priest ready to be painted ( actually Sanguinary priest is already painted – but I painted him after this battle) at some point of my 6 months journey across Australia and Asia. …

Blood Angels Sanguinary Priest painted. Yay!

The time has finally come. Holiday break is over and now I’m back to work (not a fun part), but also I’m back to painting miniatures and writing new posts on Game of Travel blog. Three weeks in Australia – it was a nice break. The time I could regenerate and get strength for painting my entire travelling set of models (full list of what exactly I’m planning to paint during my 6 months stay in Asia is here). As you can see I have pretty ambitious plans – and if I want to make it possible, I should paint from 1 to 5 models a week. Surely, it’s manageable. Starting this week here in Kuta, Bali. And, wow, how I missed that! Over three weeks with no brush in my hand. How it’s even possible?! (well, it’s not entirely true – I was painting a little – I think, it was something about three hours… but it felt like nothing). And now, let me present you Blood Angels Sanguinary Priest for Warhammer 40000. I …

Blood Angels assemble!

The title could be misleading. I have this Blood Angels Terminator Librarian assembled already about a week ago. I won’t be writing about boxing out and gluing Blood Angels minis (at least not in this post;). You know, my Space Marines: Blood Angels Chapter is going to be assembled again. Back in the days, I think, it were late 1990s I had nice army with several Blood Angels units – few tactical squads, two terminator squads, two assault squads. Death Company of course, and few heavy, heavy tanks – I don’t remember what kind though. It’s all blurry – the memory of my beginning with Warhammer 40k is so misty. It was the time of 2nd edition – the rules were much more different than right now and Blood Angels and Dark Angels had one codex called Angels of Death. I played only few battles with my BA, I even tried 3rd edition rules ( I was one of many complaining about new rules – I could never adjust my way of thinking for all …

Finally! Warhammer Shop (in Mexico).

Last week I have visited two wargaming shops in Mexico City. About first visit in ‘El Duende’, you can read in one of the previous posts from February 2015. Even though, I was enjoying ‘El Duende’ so much – I met fantastic people so passionate about Warhammer 40000 – it wasn’t  very fruitful for me personally as a collector.  I was in need of new brushes, new Citadel Paints, and most of all – new minis. And there was nothing for me. My list of unpainted miniatures (dated 20.02.2015): two Skaven Stormvermins (metal 5th Edition) one Island of Blood Plastic rat Ogre Wolsung Skirmish Steampunk Game Oak & Shield Lady Ellendeanne Wolsung Oak & Shield Sir Zachary Fiercebatten III with his hounds Not so much, as you can see. I will be travelling across Mexico for about 2.5 months. I needed more models to paint. And, you know, I’m addicted to it – I need to do this as often as possible. Preferably every day for at least 1-2 hours. Some days I’m able to …
