Those of you who've had the misfortune to have been following my blog from the Early Days will remember that it started out as a 40K blog. Indeed Palladian Guard is the name for my beloved 40K army. But I soon decided that Warhammer wasn't really for me any more. The game was getting silly (and expensive) - but I still cherished a lingering love for my first wargame. After some successful patrol clash games, I sold most of my tanks and just kept a 1,000pt all-infantry force. To be honest, there's been so much historical wargaming going on since then that I've not played a game of 40K in over a year.
We are, however, very irreverent when it comes to rules. We pick and choose what we like - for instance we still play Third Edition rules because those are our favourite set. We loved Inquisitor, and we also love Necromunda - so we've decided to start an Inquisimunda game.
What's Inquisimunda? Well, you make a squad of about 5-10 models. No rules, restrictions or anything like that - as long as it's sensible by consensus. Then, you use a made-up hash of 40K and Necromunda rules to fight a nice little skirmish game.
The beauty of this is that you can get some models of whatever army you like! In my case, Valhallans:
I wanted to go for the 'not a step back or we shoot!' vibe, so I picked the wave green cuffs and facings of the NKVD, and swapped the heavy bolter for a Vickers Gun. There we are! A nice measured return to 40K.
My main effort is still preparing the Russo-Japanese War Supercampaign, which is due to start in May...
