Warhammer 40,000
Warhammer 40,000 or simply Warhammer 40K is a miniature-based tabletop game. It involves building and painting your own miniature army and pit them against others' on a dioramic 6x4 or 4x4 feet table using a standardized set of game rules. Miniature armies come in various factions, from Imperial commandos to space-faring orks, each with its own background stories (what 40K players call "fluff") and combat units.

My army, a sub-faction of the Adeptus Astartes or the Space Marines, is of the so-called Dark Angels Chapter - one of thousands of regiments of bio-enhanced supersoldiers created by the Emperor of Man to impose his will throughout the grim universe of the 41st millennium.

Dark Angels of the Adeptus Astartes
The Dark Angels Chapter is first among legions of Space Marines bred by the Emperor from his own genetic imprints. Enhanced physiologically for combat operations, they are literally Angels of Death in the battlefield, sowing fear to anyone who dared oppose their mandate. Their homeworld, Caliban - now reduced to a barren asteroid after an epic battle against their traitorous Brothers - holds the Chapter's mobile fortress-monastery called the Tower of Angels. Here, deep within the labyrinthine pathways to the underground caverns, lies the key to their monastic nature. The Dark Angels hides a millenia-long secret that compromised their honor. It is with this reason that they and their Successor Chapters are called the Unforgiven.

Total War - First Leg

Last Saturday, our local WARMACHINE Pressganger Raymund held a tournament at Hobby Haven in Katipunan. At PHP150 bucks to register, prizes awaiting are nifty victory certificates, faction coins, and special cards. The four round Swiss style tournament was attended by eleven players.

Obi (me!) - Cygnar
Jake - Cygnar
Tiny - Cygnar

Muymuy - Khador
Kim - Khador

Carlos - Menoth
Fluffy - Menoth

Joel - Cryx
Pantyman - Cryx

Ronald - Skorne
Pork - Mercenary

Other players present: Raymund (Everblight), Chris (Skorne), Patrick (Orboros), Arvin (Khador), Zig (Mercenary), Kei (Trollbloods), SJ (Khador), Chico (Khador)

In the end, victory went to the stalwart vanguards of the Khadoran forces of Kim Navarro! With it, he aptly called the tournament "Total War" for his victory certificate.

My army din't fare well but I had so much fun playing against three players that I haven't had the chance to game with before. I used an alternate list from my themed "Storm" brigands, borrowing a unit of Trenchers, an Ogrun Bokur, and a Journeyman Warcaster from Arvin. Wrapping the line up was a unit of Stormblades, three Stormsmiths, a Thunderhead, and Commander Adept Sebastian Nemo.

There'll be another series of this tourney next Saturday that I'll prolly join again. Further info from my game results were now posted on "My Game Stats" link on the sidebar menu.


Also on that day, I bid farewell to my small Dark Eldar Army as I sold it to Art (omegatron) together with four Ogre Leadbelchers from Emp and an Ogre Empire Army Book.

They will be missed.
