Monolith Resurrection
and Illumination

Last time I promised you Necron lovers an update, and here it is. The back story for this project is simple. A friend of mine who played Necrons almost a decade ago doesn't play them anymore and was willing to sell off his ancient Monolith for cheap. Because I was getting this thing for almost half price what GW wants for it, I thought, "Why not attempt a conversion that will probably end up in its annihilation?" So that's exactly what I did!

A Shout Out to a Metal Mind

I wanted to make a post highlighting one of the most creative minds on miniatures I've seen in a long while, probably ever. Mark Hofmann of Musings of a Metal Mind is a creator of many things 40k that some have never laid eyes upon. So, I invite anyone who hasn't witnessed his masterpieces to read on and check it out.

Battle Report: My First Singles Victory

Hi, hello, welcome and other thingies. Not very often do I post something non-craft related, but this is one of those rare occasions. Friday nights are our 40k group's game night and tonight was full of epic fun. I played against my good friend Trent in a singles match. I've never won a singles game before (not since our group has learned all the rules solidly,) but tonight changed the everlasting pattern of losses and ties. Let me get to it:

Table Size: 4x4
Point Value: 1500
Game Type: Seize Ground
Deployment: Dawn of War
My Army: Ultramarines
Trent's Army: Space Wolves
Going First: Me
Square Root of 199: 14.106736
