40K against the children (again)

While Mrs Tom's Toy Soldiers sweated away her Saturday on her PhD I got to entertain the boys. They decided that a game of 40K was in order.
So I dug out the recently painted scenery and my Orks whilst they assembled their forces. We were aiming for 750 points each, apparently. I've got about 500 I think, but took what I had. Despite my pointing out that 40K works best as a 1v1 game they insisted on a three way battle.
And then ganged up on me and said the game was over when I was dead.

Anyway here are a few pictures.

 Fire Dragons dismount and prepare to melt stuff

 Painting is apparently a thing other people do

 Pile on!

The Ork last stand

I'm tempted to try and paint a few more Ork boys and get the buggies painted up.


  1. Great to see the spirit of co-operation that gaming instils in young folks! ;)

  2. Children can be harsh .....just roll over

  3. That's the spirit of 40k right there, in one glorious one-sided curb-stomp by offspring against their progenitor. Brings a tear to the eye :)

    Looks like a lot of fun. How old are they, can I ask? Counting down to when I can start playing with my two.

    1. In the grim darkness of the far future there is only patricide.
      They're ten and twelve. We've been messing with soldiers since the eldest was around 7 or 8, but this year he's joined the wargames club at school (where 40K is the only game in town)
