Boonetown - a Necromunda Tale




Boone hunched over, a jug of wildsnake in his hands and a hollow look in his eyes. It was all happening again, except this time he was too old, too slow and too tired.

A brotherhood tale - Craftworld Eldar - 'The Arrogant'


Greetings all, Triple-D here bringing you the first few elements of my Craftworld Eldar list! The craftworld is as-yet unnamed, however I do have a poll running over on my personal blog The Burning Eye where you can vote to decide what they will be called - things are neck-and-neck at the moment between the two options, so your vote really could make the difference!

The Brotherhood Tale begins.


Greetings all, after many long months dedicated to preparing armies for your delectation, the Grim Dark Brotherhood is now in a position to be able to progress our plans.

These are twofold:
  1. To produce interesting and unusual battle reports for youtube, not just using the standard matched play mission but to introduce narrative gameplay and campaign elements to the reports.
  2. To hold our own events, both for singles play and doubles matches, also encouraging the narrative aspect of gaming in a tournament setting.

The Swords of Dawn - a new army for a new edition!

Hi everyone!

Welcome to this first post in the GD Brotherhood blog for 8th edition!

It is our intention to get the blog really running with much more content now that we know what is happening with 8th edition - we can build towards our first events and keep you up to speed with the armies we're building, along with bringing you battle reports using those armies.

8th edition release information FAQ - the view of the burning eye


Greetings all! Well, this really is the New Games Workshop (TM) isn't it! Not only are they telling us that a new edition is coming and that codices will soo be off sale, but they're already answering anticipated questions!

Well, I guess therefore it's time for me to have a quick look at what we can glean from the FAQ released this afternoon. This is a duplicate of an article released on the Burning Eye blog, run by the brotherhood's very own Nick Thrower.
