Name Change

From now on, Khorneguy's Lair will be known as The Wandering Mind.

This change is for several reasons:

1. I like this name better
2. Whilst i'm known all over the internet as Khorneguy, my blog's shown no real preference towards khorne stuff, but constantly references my wandering attention span
3. It allows me to experiment with all races/systems without worrying that the blog title is somewhat misleading.

It's probably going to change at some point again in the near future, but i'm going to 'trial run' the new name for now, as well as mull it over on the ferry tommorrow, as i embark on my annual holiday. No doubt i'll return from the continet with a much better name, but for now 'Khorneguy's Lair' is gone for good.

What do you guy's think?

Did you like 'Khorneguy's Lair'?

Any suggestions for a new name?

Deathstrikes are fun!

Sometimes you just have to cackle maniaclly and hope that your doomsday device works!

Played my first game with a deathstrike today and i have to say, it was a blast!(no pun intended)

Deathstrikes pretty much sum up the way i like to play. Fun, quirky and they doesn't always pay off, but it's awesome to play with them anyway.

I reckon i need to convert up a guard officer with a suit and moustache, just for effect. He can be a 'counts' as Creed, with the four orders a turn representing him going nuts and shouting at everyone in the general vicinity!

Essentially, my guard were holed up in the building they'd hidden the deathstrike behind and kept feeding the Deathwing infantry squads until it went off.

Luckily, it went off turn 2 and hit bang on target in the centre of the huge cluster of Deathwing terminators bearing down on my squishy infantry squads with the full blast of 6". I have never seen anyone roll so many fives and sixes as this bloke did, although i did wipe out a good half-dozen or so terminators. The look on his face was worth the points cost of the missile on its own!

Unfortunatley, it didn't slow him down and his army swept up my flank, all the while under fire from guardsmen with Autocannons and Plasma Guns. One plucky Commissar wiuth a power sword even managed to kill one up close and personal before being gutted by Belial. In the end we called it a draw, due to the fact that my opponent had to dash off, but it was a very fun game and i'm looking forward to facing him again in two weeks time.

Would a second Deathsrike be excessive?

Titan Help!

I've recently come into quite a bit of money and as such, have decided to buy a titan.

I'm thinking a Reaver Titan (or even the upcoming chaos one *drool....*). Now i know I said a while back that i was gonna build my own Warlord. That's still in the works/ design process, but i thought getting a Reaver too would
a) be very, very cool, and b) give me something to refer to when i build the big 'un

Huge problem is that i've never worked with resin before. Ever. Never even ordered anything from forgeworld, therefore, i'm asking everyone if they've got any hints or tips to help me out. Is a titan a bit too ambitious to start on resin with?

Also, any reference material anyone could send me regarding Warlord Titans would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Email is this will be going on the blog soon enough anyway, but here it is
