A new era dawns for the Imperium

Welcome one and all to the random thoughts and ramblings of a Warhammer 40k gamer. Here in you will find a wide and varied array of subjects from simple modelling and painting through to complex conversions and battle reports. This blog will also be the home of the Apple j-ax gaming group updates, keeping the players informed of upcoming events such as the tournament in July. Remember the tournament is being held for you and its success is down to you. More information will be available soon, including an info pack detailing the guidelines for the event. There will also be info on the yahoo group site, which can be found at:

I will soon be using the new battle missions book to set up more mission based games, I’ve had the book for a little under a week now and what I’ve read so far it is probably the handiest book that the standard game player can own. It’s aimed at standard sized armies and average game lengths. So I will start putting some of the missions in play soon.

Those who attend the shop regularly will have noticed some changes in the layout of the shop. This has been done to divide the gaming group from the customers, as things were getting a little intimidating for the people who were trying to buy things that are stored in that half of the shop. We have also extended the sessions to one hour. It is hoped that this will allow players to set up and clear the table and still manage to fit in a 45 minute game.

When we do introduce more mission based games it would be great if the players could write battle reports to be posted here. I am also finalising with Sue, a monthly Sunday afternoon session for mature players. Keep your eyes peeled on this page for further updates. Pending Sue’s approval, we should be able to have our first session sometime in March.

Well that’s about it for now, I look forward to your feedback and welcome comments. Please remember that this is a work in progress and a few kinks will need to be smoothed out so bear with me as I compose entries and reply to your feedback.
