This very nice model was in the Forge World display cabinets at GamesDay 2007.
Another successful year for Felix’s Gaming Pages with over 450 blog posts put online. Slightly less hits this year, but that was in the main as I didn’t attend GamesDay 2011 and therefore didn’t live blog as I have done in previous years. So what were the top ten posts (by visits) for 2011.
Well the 10th most popular post was about the return of Space Hulk. I was never that into Space Hulk, I have never bought the game in its earlier incarnations, but lots of people bought the limited re-release, so much so, it sold out very quickly.
This post was a live blog post from GamesDay 2010. I was posting photographs from the show live to the blog via my phone. This was of a fantastic Warhammer Fantasy diorama, the Siege of Altdorf. I also took a fair few photographs of the siege using my DSLR.
Some excellent scenery and very evocative of the Warhammer world.
Some very nice Ultramarines Dreadnoughts on display at Warhammer World. Warhammer World is always worth a visit and I have spent lots of time looking at all the wonderful miniatures in the Citadel Miniatures Hall. Every time I have visited I have seen something new (and sometimes something old).
The Bloodthirster Greater Daemon of Khorne from the Forge World display cabinets at GamesDay 2004.
This post is from 2007 and was a photograph of an amazing Space Wolves Army. This is one of those displays at GamesDay which makes you go wow! And then you think how much did he spend…
Another old post, from 2007, and another photograph from Warhammer World. A wonderful unit of Saurus Warriors with a Slann leading them. Part of the ‘Eavy Metal Lizardmen Army on display at Warhammer World.
This post was from 2011 and discussed the possibilities of a Flames of War Battle of the Bulge supplement that Battlefront mentioned in Feburary. Within the post I discussed the tanks that I hoped we would see in any such release including the M24 Chaffee and the Comet.
I also speculated how nice it would be to see some Late-War Monsters.
This post was all the photographs I had taken of Marneus Calgar of the Ultramarines’ Land Raider from the ‘Eavy Metal display cabinets at both GamesDay 2005 and Warhammer World.
This photograph of a Chaos Baneblade that won the Silver Golden Demon at GamesDay 2007 is my second most popular post and the reason it is, is that if you put Baneblade into Google this image comes up!
So my most popular post of 2011 was a posting from February 2009 about a link I had found in the community feed of some beautifully painted Death Korps of Krieg tanks.
So will these same posts be just as popular in 2012, we will have to wait and see.

This Leman Russ Vanquisher was in the Forge World display cabinets at GamesDay 2007.
The Leman Russ Vanquisher is a more sophisticated version of the basic Leman Russ battle tank armed with the Vanquisher Battle Cannon. The special anti-tank ammunition used in this fearsome weapon is very useful against a foe with many armoured vehicles but of less use when facing a foe with smaller vehicles and hordes of infantry.
The Stygies VIII variant of the Vanquisher cannon, while lacking the immense length of the Gryphonne IV guns to generate shell velocity, utilises a slightly smaller calibre shell with increased barrel rifling.
This splendid Imperial Guard Hellhould was in the Forge World display cabinets at GamesDay 2007.
I really like this version of the Hellhound which looks much more like a flamethrower tank than the standard GW version.
From the Forge World display cabinets at GamesDay 2007.
It has an extra searchlight and dozer blade.
The Trojan is a workhorse used by Imperial Guard armoured regiments as a towing vehicle for artillery platforms and as an armoured ammunition carrier, ferrying extra ammunition to the platforms once in position.
