Marketplace / WTB: W40k 8th edition codex books
« on: August 12, 2021, 11:27:39 AM »
Hi everyone,

I am in Regina.

I am looking to expand my collection of 8th edition codex books for W40K. 

Unfortunately, I don't think I will be playing 9th edition as I have already bought most of the indexes, chapter approved and a few other 8th ed books and I just do not play often enough to re-start.

Willing to pay $10.00 per book.

Books I am interested in:

Codex Space Marines (2nd revised/updated edition)
Codex Chaos Space Marines (updated edition)
Codex Grey Knights
Codex Adeptus Mechanicus
Codex Astra Militarum
Codex Tyranids
Codex Daemons
Codex T'au Empire
Codex Drukhari
Codex Harlequins
Codex Genestealer Cults
Codex Adeptus Sororitas
Codex Daemonkin
Codex Thousand Sons
Codex Necrons
Codex Death Guard
Codex Orks

Might also be interested in Blood Angels, Dark Angels, Ultramarines, and Space Wolves... I am more interested in the above books, however.

At some point in the future I may also be interested in the Chaos Knights and Imperial Knights books.


Hi everyone,

Just getting into Doomtown: Reloaded..  I kind of missed the boat a few years ago.  Wondering if anyone has the Immovable Object, Unstoppable Force expansion for sale?  I am in Regina.


Hi everyone,

The first issue of HeroHammer has been launched.  If you have any nostalgia towards the 4th / 5th WFB era in the early to mid 90's this will take you back.

The fanzine is free to download.  I have had the pleasure to introduce a Campaign Rule-set for the magazine.  This campaign is similar to the one I ran in Regina around 2008 - 9.  If you participated in that things may be familiar. 

I will also be contributing a bunch more articles as I have time including a goofy / random board game which hopefully will be a free download in the next issue.


Miniatures Games / Warhammer 40,000 9th Edition / Command Manual Scenarios
« on: February 17, 2021, 08:41:16 PM »
I haven't played much W40k over the years.  My first boxed set was 2nd edition.  I only played a handful of games during that era.  I somewhat preferred the grandeur of Epic instead.

When the Battle of Macragge came out I played a little and recently I also played a few games of 8th edition.

My 11 year old son has taken a liking to Death Guard and we decided we will play through the Missions in the Command Manual.

Unfortunately, it took 29 hrs to upload this 15 min clip to youtube. 

But here is our battle report for Mission 1: First Contact.

Thanks for watching!

Hi everyone,

I am looking to buy W40k 2nd edition codex books.  They must be in good condition.

I am also looking to buy 1st edition W40k Rogue trader era books as follows: "Chapter Approved – Book of the Astronomican",  "Warhammer 40,000 Compilation", "Waaagh – Orks", "'Ere we Go", "Battle Manual", and "Vehicle Manual".

For Epic 40k I am interested in armies / models and also looking for the Tyranid Hive War supplement.

If you have anything for sale probably best to text me at 306 591 7601.


Game Discussion / 2 player gaming goodness
« on: May 13, 2020, 10:53:24 AM »
Hi everyone,

My youngest son, Kieran (10 yrs), and I have been playing a lot of 2 player games with the extra time we have during this Covid stuff.

We decided it would be fun to put the session reports on youtube.  We play a wide variety of games from mini's to abstracts to dedicated 2 players.

Feel free to check it out and let us know how we could improve.   This has been a fun project so far as we both really enjoy games of all genres.  It has also been quite fun learning video editing software slowly as we go (later episodes are edited and early ones are mostly raw footage).

Our general board game / card game / abstract game playlist:

Warhammer 4th ed playlist:


Hi everyone,

Looking to buy Epic stuff.  Any edition is probably ok but I would prefer the 6mm stuff from the 80's - early 2000's.

Mostly play Epic Space Marine 2nd edition.

Located in Regina. 


Hi everyone,

I know this is probably a long shot but here it goes.  I am looking to buy the rulebook, dice, and all of the cards from the latest Necromunda Boxed Set - Dark Uprising.

I figure their may be someone who went all in and got multiple copies and may have some spare bits.

Don't really need the terrain as I have tonnes of Sector Mechanicus and MDF stuff.

It is that time of the year to get excited for Blood Bowl.  This will be our 8th formal season.

Come one come all.  Make a team.  Make it tough.  Or don’t.  Winning is important.  Survival is as well. 

Entry Cost for the Season
  •    $15.00 per coach (this pays for our annual website registration; any extra costs go towards year end and/or our All-Star game)

Team Building
  •    All coaches will need to create a brand new team for the 2520 Season.
       $1 000 000 team.
       Each team needs 11 players minimum on the starting roster.
       All other normal team building rules apply.
       All teams will be built on our website as normal.
       LRB 6.0 rules in effect with some current Games Workshop rulebook adjustments (i.e. I have a copy of GW Rules, Death Zone 1 and 2, Blood Bowl Almanac 2018 and 2019).

  •    No experience required.  If you have never played we can teach you the game.
       Each coach should bring suitable figures to represent their players and a set of Blood Bowl dice as well.
       We would prefer Blood Bowl figures from Games Workshop or any similar manufacturer.

League Format
  • Each team will play each other team once in the regular season.
       If we have enough players we may need to sub divide the league into two divisions
       This year we will be moving to a fixed schedule game format.
       This is different to previous years where we had a free form league format
       Two regular season games will be uploaded every three weeks.  If all players have completed their matches prior to the deadline we will immediately input the next batch of games.
       Matches for all regular season games will be drawn at random.
       Top eight teams (calculated by points / 5 for a win, 2 for a tie, 1 for a loss) will enter the playoffs.

Any questions – please reach out.  If you would like to join I will need a reply (send to me only) on or before end of Sunday, Feb 2.

Feel free to pass this onto anyone who might be interested!

No other inducements are allowed.

Tournament Games
Each team is guaranteed a minimum of 2 games.

After the first game all winners go into the winner bracket.  After the first game all losers go into the loser bracket.

Each game after the first game is single elimination.  You lose the match and you are out.  Matches for all games will be drawn at random.

The winner of the winner bracket will play the winner of the loser bracket in the final.  The team in the winning bracket gets to choose who will kick or receive.  They will also get to choose to kick or receive if the game goes into overtime. 

The winner of the final match will get paid entry to the 2520 RFBBL Regular Season.  The entry helps us cover our annual website costs.  This is usually an equivalent of $20.00 CDN.

Any questions – please reach out.

Miniatures Games / static grass suppliers in Regina?
« on: October 27, 2018, 09:56:35 AM »
Hi everyone,

Does anyone carry static grass in Regina?  I tried redline but they only special order it.

I recently made a static grass applicator using a negative ion generator and would like to try 2, 4, 6 and 10mm blends for some projects this weekend.
