Battle Report: Warhammer 40k – Blood Angels vs Eldars (1000 points)

In last post I wrote how I got to Fantasy ‘N Games Store in Jakarta, Indonesia. Really cool place with great community. If I can only had time, probably I could have played three battles, or maybe more. Unfortunately I arranged my time there so poorly , so I had only one free day to visit the stores, so therefore I was able to play only one game. So. The game: Warhammer 40k. Opponent: Gerald and his Eldars. My army: personal detachment of Blood Angels (Sanguinary Priest, Tactical Squad and Terminator Squad) plus some local Blood Angels borrowed from Aldo, local gamer (many thanks!, you are The Boss!). So, it’s time for next Game of Travel battle report, straight from Jakarta. Background Brother Gamaliel was badly wounded during the battle on planet Baan consumed by dark forces of Chaos, but he managed to get to last evacuation transport from this wicked place before its destruction. His last task in As.S1.A sector was to get rid of aliens from the planet designated as JK001 on the …

Battle Report: Warhammer 40k – Blood Angels vs Chaos Space Marines (750 points)

Last week I’ve visited Battlefield Bangkok store in Thailand. Great place and great people are working there! After short conversation via Facebook, they arranged the battle against Chaos Space Marines for me. Jack, one of the employees from the store was about to be my opponent. We agreed to play 750 points battle. I used, as always, my two travelling squads of Blood Angels (one Tactical and one Terminators) plus Sanguniary Priest. This time I managed to paint them a little bit. Still, loots of work to do, but at least you can see red on the table and that’s progress. I borrowed few Dark Angles models from the store cabinet to complete my Army list. Really, appreciate that – I’m really grateful for possibility of borrowing models from store collection. Thank you guys! Background Story The time has come. The heresy is about to be purged. Exeteminatus has been ordered for planet of Baan. Several cults of Chaos were detected,  infiltrating local society for decades spreading the rot on the living flesh of Imperium …

Battle Report: Warhammer 40k – Blood Angels vs Raven Guard (750 points)

Recently I’ve written about impressions I got from my visit in Singapore’s hobby store  – Gamers@PI (link here). I’ve spent awesome evening there – chatting, gossiping (wargaming stuff only:) and making few new friendships. …and beside that I’ve played great battle of Warhammer 40k  with one of the store’s employees – Aaron. My Blood Angels vs his Raven guard. It was only 750 points (we haven’t got too much time), but it still was fun. My major issue about this battle and battle report – how to explain that Blood Angles were fighting with their brothers – Raven Guard. It was tough nut to crack – two loyalist chapters fighting each other? Very unlikely. I needed something to spice up the background story a little and make it believable. I needed Raven Guard force to turn renegade and stand against Imperium (I hope Aaron will not mind this sudden change of sides:). Second issue – my models are still unpainted. I’ve finished Sanguinary Priest and nothing except that. Tactical squad –  black prim and Terminators …

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 …
