My Current Deathzap Collection

If you’re wondering about the odd set up of the room in which these pictures take place it’s because we’re currently moving our living room to what was a dining room. So that’s all 267 little people (excluding vehicles, monsters and around 70 bugs that wouldn’t fit) I have currently painted for the latest version […]

Deathzap Progress

So I didn’t manage to get my Deathzap campaign going in the week I had off of work, but I did make a lot of progress on the Deathzap front. I played a good few disconnected games just to make sure the rules for all the factions were good to go by the time I […]

Big Boys

A nice day was had bumbling around our local ‘big town’ Barnstaple today and the Mrs and I took our weekly pilgrimage to the finest discount shop B&M. Most of the time it’s fairly slim pickings in the toy section but today that was definitely not the case! 76 pieces for £5, sure there’s two […]

Oltra Burns Again

In the interest of starting up some Deathzap 3 again I’ve been amassing forces. Representing the SynJen were my previously seen Rin Empire platoon, but to back them up I’ve added a platoon of Volkovian Knights and a Beam Tank: For the A.L.L I’ve actually only built Gnossian forces, again you’ve seen my Sector Army […]

Polishing a Turd

A long time ago after being inspired by the Man of Tin blog I grabbed my first tub of Poundland Army Men and painted some of them up as an unknown sci fi force: Later on I dubbed them the Allegiance of Gnossos and Deathzap was born. What this little project did though was make […]

The History of Jendar

Having been knocked out by my second covid vaccine and with a couple of busy weekends I’ve been unable to get much done in the hobby, but this time has given me the opportunity to try and work out some of the history of Deathzap and mainly the planet of Jendar. The timeline below is […]

North and South Cameria go to War!

Thinking I’d make use of the some of the figures seen in my last post I’ve embarked on a long intended project within the Deathzap universe, that being the Camerian Civil War. I’ve started by painting two simple skirmish forces of North and South Camerians using the old Airfix Afrika Korps and 8th Army. First […]

Getting Back Into Deathzap

Since the big Oltra campaign I played out a good while ago I’ve been constantly attempting to get back to the Deathzap universe but I’ve always struggled. I think that’s largely because I wanted Deathzap to be something it never should be my own Warhammer 40k. In actuality what Deathzap is and should always be […]

Rust, Dirt and Blood

Private Josef Steiner. Legion of Kharthion. No. 332143246. Rust, dirt and blood. The sky above was dark and oppressive. I’d checked and rechecked my Repeater, the mag was full. I knew it was full, but I also knew in a few minutes I’d check it again. I was shaking. It was strange. I was used […]

The War Begins

Prime Coldan Thrane backed away from his view screen. He nervously paced the room and listened carefully to the report. “My Sister will have fulfilled her contract flawlessly” said a voice. It came from a cloaked figure standing in the corner of the room. Her dark shape against the ivory walls looked like an ink […]

Battle Squadron!

I’m hoping to play a larger game of Deathzap at some point this bank holiday weekend, but since we were rather busy today I only had time for some maintenance. A trip to Tesco garnered some Tupperware containers to store my Deathzap forces in which will save me digging around in the big box I […]

Simple Satisfying Games

There’s often an urge to roll dice and see events unfold, to wonder how things might have been different had fortune swung the other way and what might have been actively done better to change the outcome. To scratch this itch I played a 150 point game of Deathzap Skirmish on a rather small board […]

The Outpost – Game Report

The following skirmish was an attempt at what I’m calling Advanced Deathzap, not that it’s particularly complicated, more that it adds in that personality that I’ve wanted to get into my games for a while, hopefully going forwards forces should have a less generic feel. I set up a small gaming area in the corner […]

Grid of Death – Battle Report

The Tribeship Torvax is home to the Bloodline Tribe of Solar Raiders, one of the largest among the SolRad fleets it harbours impressive hab-domes, rich, but artificial jungles fill the domes in order to create a self sustaining breathable atmosphere on the ship. A small invasion force of Vel scout the Torvax after infiltrating it […]

Paint Maketh The Man

The above the picture is taken from my old long dead blog… it was way back when I first discovered Poundland’s figure offering, they came in a bags of 100 and had that familiar bright orange and green cardboard packaging that read combat… er… something. At the time I was working on some rules for […]

Deathzap Fluff

So the we’re moving house. This has made hobbying difficult as I’m sure you can imagine, and gaming next to impossible, other than maybe getting out my portable stuff from time to time. I thought however rather than lamenting the lack of hobby I’d use this little break to write up my imagined universe for […]
