Old Stuff Day 2017- Blog Wars and Card Terrain

March 2nd is Old Stuff Day. For those of you that don't know, Old Stuff Day is a yearly event that I first saw on Warhammer 39,999. It is a chance to raid through the archives of your blog and dust off some articles that you haven't seen in a while or didn't get enough attention first time round. 

You can find my post for last years Old Stuff Day, where I talked about White Dwarf and my very first battle report on the blog. 

This year, I wanted to delve into the distant past of 2015 and highlight my battle report for my first game at Blog Wars 9. As I am coming up on my second year of blogging, it seemed right to highlight this, as Blog Wars 9 was one of the catalysts that led me to set up my blog in the first place. This game was against NafNaf (of Objective Secured fame) and is one of my favourite tournament games I have played. NafNaf was a blast to play against and we had a fantastic time with terrible dice rolls, terrible failed charges and my White Scars Bikers doing their best to run away from his Thunderwolf Cavalry for most of the game. 

Another article that is quite fitting for Old Stuff Day is my post on the old card terrain for 40k. Games Workshop used to sell these great card pieces that still look great in the game. Reading the post, I realise that I still haven't build the Imperial Firebase and Command Tower yet! I plan to rectify this mistake very soon. 

By the way, I am still on the lookout for the Imperial Bastion shown below to complete my collection. If you know where I can get one, please let me know! 

I hope you enjoy checking out some of the older articles I have posted. Be sure to check out the other Old Stuff Day posts doing the rounds. 


  1. Love those old card stock buildings, I have a bunker complex one, looks more blue than the first pic, I think it will be great for Necromunda along with the other Necromunda buildings.

    1. I'm hoping to get my other two built and get some more games using them. Bring on the old school!

  2. Pretty sure I had the bastion back in the day, though it's long been consigned to the bin I'm afraid.

    I'd love to see some of these recreated in plastic though in the style of their current kits!

  3. I have the bastion, but it's built and mounted on a base. If interested, I'll send pics when I'm back home. Email me separately at

  4. I've been involved in 40K since third edition and amazingly I have never had the pleasure of playing with the cardstock terrain.

  5. I'm about to get my hands on an unopened still sealed in its plastic wrap bastion among other goodies. Gimme a shout if ur interested :)
