My Warhammer 40k Flickr Account

Post by Vid » 30 Dec 2015, 00:18

Hey, some of you may know that I play warhammer 40k (and hope to branch out to 30k) I've been playing since 1998 but since 2011 I've been photographing most of my games and keeping score with them. The last few days I've decided to upload those pictures to Flickr in chronological game order. Some of you might find this interesting. The first army listed is always my army against whoever is listed next. In the info on each game up the top of each album is the mission type and score. I try to use all painted models and scenery so anything unpainted is probably not mine. There are a few games (fewer than 10) missing in this diary of sorts as I didn't photograph those.

I'll be updating this as games go on every few weeks

So here it is:

enjoy

Seeing as I am dipping my fingers back in to the painting and maybe playing later.

How long does it take for you to play out a game with a 2000 point army?

I play 2000 point games as standard game size and it takes anywhere between 3 to 7 hours depending on my opponent and our army compositions.
If there are lots of psychic powers it takes a bit longer (So Eldar/Tyranids/Grey Knights can take longer)
Also I have some opponents that love to smash through games as quickly as possible tournament styles, and some opponents who like to chill and chat and relax during the game and that can draw the game out a lot.

Overall I'd say a 2000 point game would take about 4 or 4.5 hours if you know the rules and push through. But it can be done in 3 hours like a tournament.

What army are you getting into?

BTW - since I posted this I've updated the Flickr account a lot and there are lots more games on there.

Over the past few years Games Workshop and Forgeworld have opened up the Horus Heresy era of the universe to game play. That's 30k as it takes place around 30000AD rather than 40000AD where normal warhamer 40000 takes place. 30k where half of the 20 space marine legions (before they were split into lots of chapters) fell to Chaos under the Primarch Horus and rebelled and fought against the Emperor.

Basically it's old school space marines fighting each other and it's a lot of fun as many of the rules are reminiscent of old 3rd and 4th ed 40k. And the models are awesome. Also, as it's mostly marines fighting marines there are no super broken armies like Eldar in it (yet) but they might be putting Orks/Eldar etc in it later (just not Tau or Tyranids as they weren't around in that era)

Sorry if you already knew most of that but it was unclear in your question whether you just wanted to know what 30k was or wanted to know about it :)

I picked up some Blood Angles. Really just wanted something to paints to start off again.
But I had a Imperial Guard, 40k Space Marine Chaos Khorne Army, Warhammer High Elves, 40k Epic Space Marine Army as well. Kinda wish I still had it all. Not really sure what happened to it all. :(

dont really play but love the lore and stories from both universe, that and i cant paint even model airplanes to save my life.
really annoyed when white dwarf mag changed to that new just miniature buyers display magazine, loved the snippets of codexes, battle reports, golden deamon and custom models they gerryrigged up.

I am still painting my fantasy army, never got into 40k, and well, one army is costly enough.

Lately we have played Kings of War rules rather than Warhammer. Much faster, and written by ex Warhammer employees. Lots of fun though.

Also off to a gaming group thing today, hopefully they have a few games of everything going
