Hey all;

Well after a few weeks of 6mm Epic fun I decided to return to some classic 28 mm gaming this week with a battle of second edition Warhammer 40k battle. In this Space Marine vs Space Marine battle I commanded a force of my Rogue Trader Salamanders whilst my girlfriend commanded my more modern Crimson Fists.

This battle was fought over my urban terrain and was thoroughly enjoyable, especially as we decided to include a few tanks this time around!! The presence of armoured vehicles really added another element of tactics to the action!

This game reminded me that 1993-1998 was really the golden age of 40k!

I've done a full report with loads of pictures on my blog!

Dude your miniatures are bad ass awesome!!!

You should post a few teaser pics here of the awesome sounding battle.

And I have to agree, 93-98 was the golden age of 40k. Lot's of fond battle memories.

Cheers dude!

My original post had a lot more photos; but annoyingly something went wrong and now I can only put up the two shown! I hate technology!

There are loads more on the blog post at

I'll keep trying to get them up on here!

Cheers guys!

I'm glad you like it!

I can't take credit for the logo! Someone over at the Oldhammer group created a few different ones for oldhammerers!! That was the one I liked the most so I borrowed it! I have to say they have done a great job on it!
