It’s no secret that I think 6th edition as a tournament game is terrible, but as a beer a pretzels game I think it’s the best version of 40k that GW has ever done.
I’ve been having a great time playing a mini-campaign with Rob just lately. We’ve had so much fun that the result of the game has been secondary to the story that has evolved. The ideas that we keep coming up with have really helped to enrich our games and replace the ‘let’s practice for the next tournament’ mentality that we used to enjoy under 5th edition.
While playing the Assault On Black Reach Campaign, we both thought that we really should have a ‘Shrine to Chaos’ seeing as we were fighting on a Daemon Forgeworld. Fortunately I remembered an old plastic skull I had lying aroung that would make an ideal Soul-Shrine. So with a bit of hardboard, some Cork Bark, a plastic skull, a raid on the bits box and a few enjoyable hours of chopping things up, here is what I came up with:
The Other Side
Turns out that it fits perfectly with one of my old objective markers.
To give the overall effect of this.
Of course, the downside to this is that my armies are receiving very little love at the moment, but such is the curse of the hobby butterfly 😉 .
I’m currently working on two separate projects, completing my Slaanesh Lord, Nestor Lustheart, Chosen of Slaanesh, complete with silver plated hand necklace, which I’m sure Steve will be interested in and making a Zone Mortalis board with Rob.
As my old (very old actually!) mentor says…..Stay Frosty!
