GW price increase and cheapo psyfle dreadnought

Yes GW increasing price again! woooooo! Effect on us is small since we are banned  cant buy from cheap overseas retailers (UK) after 1st June.

This month we will be increasing the price of some of our products. This price change will take effect from May 28th.


Complete list of items increasing in price here:

Since FW is the only place that sells "left handed" autocannon and costing £7.20 each. 2 autocannons would cost £14.4 exclude shipping which is 15% for ROW, total £16.56. After browsing dakka dakka forums, a thread suggest using Aegis defence lines interceptor autocannon, which cost £12+ in Maelstrom Games. Its plastic, "free" Aegis def lines and its £4 cheaper than FW, what a deal! Below are some pictures of the Aegis defence line autocannon on GK dreadnought. Also magnetize the autocannons.

End game thoughts
If we had carried on the game, I would have lost either by 1 KP or getting tabled as I only have 2 rhinos left while Krom have 2 devastators and a melta gunner near the 2 rhinos (1 immobilized).
I had used Mephiston in my earlier BA games and found him incredible, basically a 1 man army. Today is the 1st time I had played against him and Mephiston is really "lord of death". It is very fast and basically anything it hits dies. Truly scary and priority 1 to kill it.

SCREWED! well at least for people outside EU...

This rumoured had been circulating for awhile now on warseer forums.

Our greatest fear had come after confirmation by Mr Rob Lane from Maelstrom Games that UK (northern Europe) retailers can only sell GW stuffs to the following countries:
Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom 

source here:

I'm afraid it is bad news. This is all you need to know in a nutshell: independent retailers supplied from GW Northern Europe cannot sell GW products outside the EU, plus countries like Norway and Switzerland. I will be posting a list of all the countries we will be allowed to sell GW products to on a news article on our website shortly.

I will refrain from commenting about GW's decision, but suffice to say that I am very sad for all of you Rest of the World customers - and for our own business, of course. However, we're offering you an 18% off UK RRP voucher for all Games Workshop products until the 30th of May - check out our webstore for details.

I would like to thank you all for your support, now and in the future. And remember - the wargaming world does not revolve around Games Workshop's products, so I'll still be seeing you all for our very own BaneLegions as well as Hordes and Warmachine and suchlike!

Another weekend another 40k session. Got to play against Beardy One BA again with my FINESSE! Dark Eldar lol. Beardy One was going to join a local tourney and needed to play-test his BA list, we decided to play a mission from the tournament.

Mission: Land Grab
Annihilation: The player with the most Kill Points as defined in
the Warhammer 40K rulebook (pg 91) at the end of the game
achieves this mission objective.

Battlefield Control: The player that controls the most table
quarters at the end of the game achieves this mission objective. 
To control a table quarter there must be a Scoring Unit in the
table quarter at the end of the game and the quarter must not
be contested. A table quarter is contested if there are enemy
units present (any unit, whether scoring or not). A unit may
only control or contest ONE table quarter at a time. If a unit is 
spread between multiple table quarters, the unit is considered
to control or contest the table quarter containing a MAJORITY
of that unit. If this is unclear, then randomly determine which
table quarter that unit is controlling or contesting.

Lead by Example: A player achieves this mission objective by
having a model from an HQ unit within 6” of the tactical marker
at the center of the table at the end of the game. Both players 
can achieve this mission objective.

Highlights of the game
-3 Beastmaster, 4 razorwing birds, 5 khymera and 5 wyches charge a 10men assault marine + a 10men tactical marine. Was not able to kill them off and a counter-charge by a DC squad with angry librarian + surviving mehreenzs manage to decimate beast squad and needing insane courage, beast squad + wyches promptly flee  real space (back to the webway)
-Haemonculus open(shot) dark gate at a BA rhino with assault marines and roll 1 for damage, the dark tentacles shaking the rhino, unable to drag it down into the darkness.
-Archon with 2 incubi charge a 5men terminator squad and lose combat by 1. Treacherous Archon survived the combat but decided to flee, was eventually blast apart by autocannon. 

I decided to call it on turn 5 as I only have 10 warriors left and have no chance of winning.

Annihilation - BA 14: DE 1
Battlefield Control - BA 3: DE 0
Lead by Example - BA 0: DE 0

BA win with 2 mission objectives!

Got to apologize to Krom that he came but did not play again due to time constraint. 

Credits and mission taken from here.

Got some Game Science dice from Grimcron over at
Used them for this game and quite impress by the results, even spread of results and I have never pass so many 4+ cover saves before. Reason why my big beast squad with wyches could not wiped out the 10+10 marines was I switch back to my "cursed" dice due to the massive amt of attacks. Dice blaming FTW!

Game Science Dice (1,2,3,3,4,4,4,5,6,6)

Injured Punk Dark Eldar

Inspired by gaming buddy Skanwy painting logs over at the Ward Save ( I decided to paint something small also.

While watching GE2011 on the TV for the whole night, painted up an objective marker I named "Injured Punk Dark Eldar".

The idea started when gaming buddy Jaeroler mentioned that the old DE warriors look very "punk-ish". With this I  took an old DE warrior, chop it up, green stuffs here and there, stick some pointy stuffs and not forgetting our favourite skull decoration and done.

Came up with some fluff for this objective.
The injured punk DE a true born belonging to a noble house. Shot by bolters, right arm blown off, left hand slice by bolter round and same round exploded in the gut. The Kabal left him behind after an unsuccessful real space raid.
The noble house Archon demand his rescue and return to the regenerative chambers of Commorragh. 
Imperial wants to capture and "interrogate" him or burn/kill it.
Chaos just wants to eat his soul. 
Necrons need some flayed skin to wear. 
Orks SMASH puny eldar.
