SCN Hobby World – Aeldari reinforcements are on their way!

Hello everyone! Hope you are safe and well. Good luck to everyone playing in tournaments today. Again I am working so I will miss popping in to the one being held by Savage Hammer gaming. Check them out and their future events. They have just been recognised as an official tournament organiser by Games Workshop.

I feel like this could be another busy weekend. Aeldari are proving very popular and from the look of the models up for pre-order there is some really cool reinforcements available for your Aeldari army.

Here is all your new releases up for pre-order;

AELDARI: SHINING SPEARS RRP £37.50-25%= £28.13
AELDARI: RANGERS RRP £35-25%= £26.25

Below is information regarding some releases that are still in store but once they’re gone they’re gone. I do have stock of a few older dice sets, data cards/ warscrolls cards in store. If you’ve missed something and would like to check store stock send a message.

  • Black Library Limited Editions
  • Ghazghkull Thraka: Prophet of the Waaagh (limited Edition HB) £40
  • Dominion Orukk Cover Limited Edition £40
  • Dominion Stormcast Eternal Cover Limited Edition £40
  • Penitent Limited edition £40

I can get ANY GW line for you. If it’s not on our list (of over 1,500 lines at 25% off!), that means it will be 15% off, as I must do it via the website, where discount is much reduced, to me. As well as our Games Workshop discount we have discounts on Bolt Action, Marvel Crisis Protocol and more. 

This is hopefully going to make ordering a lot easier for everyone, but please remember I don’t hold all items in store, so the shipping delay may still apply while waiting for stock to arrive. The best time to place orders is by Sunday 6pm so I can collect all the information and order stock on Monday and get it to you in a good time frame. 

Web only items are on there too, so please appreciate the fact that I can offer these at a discounted price (though a little less than the usual 25%) but I have to order them direct from the GW website just as you would do and if there is no stock, I also have to wait till they come back in, and this may cause shipping delays. 

Any questions or queries on this process please send me an email. 
You can place your orders via the website or via the order form, whichever works best for you :0)

All orders placed via the website that are over £95 qualify for free Shipping. 

Don’t forget the order cut-off is 6pm sharp Sunday. Anything after that rolls to next week’s order.

How to order, pay etc – VERY important to read:
Below is how to lay your hands on the below at 25% off:

Black Library novels and audio books
Hobby supplies
Carry cases
Models…of course
White Dwarf
Getting started boxes

Paint is at a 15% discount

How to order:

Sign up to the mailing list by messaging us on Facebook or emailing us at

Fill in the order form which gets attached to your weekly email that I send – simply add the quantity you want of any line in the pink “order” column. The sheet will keep a running total for you. There is a full list and one for all single paints, brushes and tools

Email the completed form to me at

I place the order at 6pm sharp on a Sunday – any orders from 6:01pm onwards will be rolled to the following week

Orders will only be made once payment has been received

The new EASIER way to order is via the website

What if the models I want are not on the list?
If they are on the GW website, I can order them for you. Just tell me what you need in your email.

These carry a 15% discount instead of the usual 25% discount – this is because my discount is reduced too.

Getting your order to you:
You can collect or have your items posted – all the details are below, including my business address for collection.

For Collection – see shop address at the bottom of this email (opening times and closing times apply)

Most orders are small (fit in a box no bigger than 16x35x45cm and under 2kg weight). These always cost £4.20 and use Royal Mail 2nd Class signed for.

Larger orders will be more – typically £7.19 Evri (new name for Hermes)/ £8.90 parcel force/ by courier of your choice. Dependent on weight and size prices vary.

Orders online via the website over £95 are free shipping

EU orders will be more – ask and I’ll get a price for you, depending on pack size and country.

I will always let you know postage before you pay.

I’m happy to store and bundle multiple orders in to single postage/collections to save you time and money – even for multiple people, if it’s helpful for your groups.

I’m also happy to hold multiple orders over a period of weeks or months for you, securely, so you can have them shipped in bigger batches, and save multiple postage costs. Totally up to you. If you choose to part ship your order, you will have to cover both shipping costs.

Note that you can never have new release models until the actual release date

Save yourself postage and arrange to collect from me at our store:

Happy Mothering Sunday to all the lovely lady gamers out there
Thank you for all your support

The Battle of Burning Skies Preview

This weekend I’m taking part in my first AoS tournament, Battle of Burning Skies is run by the legends at Savage Hammer Gaming and Greetings from the Warp, and is sponsored by none other than fellow Woehammerer Sarah and SCN Hobbies.

This is my first tournament of any kind since 1999 (yes, I’m that old). All the lists are available on Best Coast Pairing if you have a subscription so I thought I would cover three of the lists which I believe have the potential to win.

Savage Hammer Gaming have a number of events upcoming this year all based in Bedford, for both 40k and AoS. So if you want to keep updated on them or want to come along to an event why not check them out on Eventbrite.

Favourite Declan Waters – Big Waaagh!

Declan has come off the back of two tournament tournament wins and a second place, being undefeated in all three. A win at Dazmaul Wargaming and the Chumpionship tournament, and a second place at Raging Rivers so its hard to ignore his potential to make it three wins on the trot. Declan is running his favourite Big Waaagh! once more which suits his punch second gaming style.

Additional Enhancements


Christine Coram – Ironjaws

After starting the year playing Daughters of Khaine, Christine swapped to her old favourites Ironjaws for the Chumpionship, and boy what a swap! Christine finished 2nd in the event to Declan with her Ironjaws list and I’ve no doubt her list has the potential for three wins this weekend. WHAT’S THAT COMING OVER THE HILL? IS IT KRAGNOS, IS IT KRAGNOOOOSSSS?! Lots of big stompy monsters here, with a recently upgraded Kragnos who can do a lot of heavy lifting alongside the ubiquitous Maw-Krusha. This list is bound to crush face.

Christian Moore – Legion of the First Prince

We’ve seen versions of Christian’s list on many top 3’s recently so it’s hard to ignore the potential for him to place high up in the rankings this weekend. Christian is a seasoned pro and went 5-0 at Blackout V with his Soulblight Dynasty he has swapped them this time around for Legion and I think he has the potential to push Declan to the end on this one.

Woehammer Painting Competition

It’s finally time to announce the winner of our painting competition who, with thanks to SCN Hobby World, will walk away with a start Collecting! or Combat Patrol box of their choice.

There were so many great entries to the competition and I’d like to thank everyone who took the time to take part and also to my fellow judges, Sarah, Ed, Declan and Rhys.

Here is the full list of entries:

Marks were awarded out of ten for each miniature by each judge on the panel, and it was a very close run contest!

3rd Place – Antonio Rodrigo & Justin Jackson

The judges just couldn’t separate between the two miniatures with both receiving the same scores across the panel. So both Justin and Rodrigo will walk away with a £10 Games Workshop voucher.

2nd Place – Joseph Isham

In second place and winning £20 of GW vouchers in Joseph Isham who submitted this awesome Space Marine Chaplain conversion.

1st Place – Steve Milford

In first place and walking away with the inaugural Woehammer Painting Competition top prize is Steve Milford and his excellent Relictor.

As I said before the standard really was very high with only 6.5 points separating the top six positions!

I hope you have all enjoyed taking part, and again I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to Sarah and SCN Hobby World for sponsoring this event and providing the top prize!

Woehammer Painting Competition

So the deadline has closed and the judges are reviewing the miniatures and giving their scores. We will announce the winner on Friday 7th January where they’ll be asked which Combat Patrol or Start Collecting box they would like as their prize.

This has all been made possible thanks to our amazing sponsor SCN Hobby World, where you can get up to 25% off your miniature orders!

Painting Competition Announcement

Small announcement in regards to the painting competition.

We are extremely sad to announce that due to cheating the competition has been closed and no prize will be issued.

My apologies to those of you who have competed. All your entries were amazing and unfortunately this has been spoilt by one individual who shall remain nameless.

I’ll be reopening to entries in the next day or so with a closing date of 31st Jan. This time I’ll have the Woehammer guys as judges rather than voting. I’ll automatically include those who entered into the competition.

My sincere apologies!

#Woehammer Roundup 17th October 2021

Two submissions this week under the #Woehammer on Twitter. Both members of the team.

If you want to see your miniatures on the site remember to use the hashtag #woehammer either on Twitter or Instagram.

Dave has started a new 40k 9th Edition army, this time focusing on the Space Marine Chapter the Imperial Fists. The model below is his first Marine for the army, and I think you’ll agree its a stunner!

Dave’s Imperial Fist

Dave has gone for an awesome golden yellow armour tone and black trim denoting the 5th Company.

The detail on the base is great, and I especially love the coiled barbed wire and spent casings next to the dismembered head.

It’s little different this week for Declan’s submission, here we have an army shot of the force he took to Mancunian Carnage last weekend.

The blue armour really stands out along with the spots of Red. Declan has joked in the past that his Orcs have been called the Crimson Fists. It’s a great army and Declan finished the weekend 3-2!

And talking of Declan’s fantastic tournament performance, only yesterday he was interviewed by the AOS Coach on YouTube about the Gloomspite Gitz! I’ve included the video below for you to watch.

Remember to use the #woehammer for your painting.
