On the Map!

Hello everybody!

Wow! It's been a while since I've posted. Not because I've been inactive in the hobby, no, as I've had a lot of things going on and will try to update more soon. I've just been very busy with real life activities and so have had to put off updating the blog for a while. But, as I've said before, my updates may be sporadic, depending on the whim's of fate.

Today I would like to present my new Warhammer/40K Campaign board.

This weekend, the local Games Workshop store was celebrating it's 14th birthday. On a whim, after a hard day at work, I walked in and discovered they had some very special items up for auction. One being a painted Space Hulk demo set (though it was missing 3 of the coolest Terminators....suspicious? Nooooo!) and one of the rare and limited Walls of Minas Tirith, which I bought.

To celebrate their birthday they were also having a prize draw. Among the prizes was a Warhammer Battalion box, and a very cool Mighty Empires/ Planet Strike Campaign Map, created and painted by one of the staff, whom I've been friends with since he first entered the hobby when I was a staffer there 14 years ago. When he called me to tell me I won the map, I was surprised and quite happy, and promised him I would keep the paint job the way it is.

Here is why:

This thing is amazing. There are some excellent details, like a ring of mage stones, a magnificently huge mountain range, a giant pyramid, and a giant Elven Tree, just to name a few cool features.

I will definitely be using this for some time to come, but have plans to use both sides of the tiles as there are plenty of ways to set up this map...

I have some excellent campaign ideas for this map as well...

The gears they are turning....

Cheers, until next time!
