Designer's Notes: Count Radu

Welcome all, to the first of a series of hopefully many blog posts, entitled ‘Designer’s Notes’!

As Project Big Kahuna continues apace towards the golden goal of the Beta Test release, consider this a ‘leaked preview’ document of one of the many homebrewed new special characters and units, to be released into an unsuspecting 40K-playing public. You lucky, lucky people.

Now, onwards to the notes!

Once You Pop You Can't Stop

Apologies to all! No Wednesday Gaming Night (again) for the 2nd week in a row, us lot being busy and all. Still, next Wednesday comes round it’ll be a battle royale between Laur’s Ultramarines VS Doug’s Chaos Marines in their first proper outing! Chaos has only ever reared its’ spiky head twice on Wednesday Gaming Night, once in an 800 point battle, and another in a 3-way battle as well. They’ve performed well so far, and now with an all new Defiler in the mix, we’ll see how this goes.


Just thought I’d put a little post here to take stock of what I’m intending to do, 40K-wise. Real-life really does get in the way, but here’s what’s happening:

Preview: Project Big Kahuna – Welcome to the Zone..

I’ll be honest with you all and say that currently Project Big Kahuna is at a standstill, as I seem to be suffering from something called writer’s block! Notably, I’m trying to actually write-up the titular rules entry itself and seem to have hit a wall, along with reality’s work demands and other distractions in the mix.

Rebus 40K Strikes Back!

"Rebus has taught you well."
- Dark Elevator

New month, new banner, new Rebus 40K!

At the time of posting this post, it's been a while since anyone (or any Antipodean) won a no-prize in a game of 40K-themed Rebus! For the neophytes amongst you reading this, welcome to the 512th Cadian, home of Rebus 40K!

For those still not in the know or withoutsoever a clue daddy-o, a Rebus is a picture puzzle. Say what you see, and hopefully you can correctly ascertain the answer to the picture puzzle (all 40K-themed) and guess enough correctly, figure out the overall theme! Get all correct answers AND the theme, and you gets yourselves a no-prize!

So onwards, onwards to glory!
