Squaduary 2018


Greetings Sinners!

My grand plan to focus exclusively on my terrain tiles lasted all of three days....oops!
It isn't my fault...no really it isn't! You can blame it firmly on Rory at Stepping Between Games . I was casually browsing through my Blog list and stumbled across this article .....Okay, maybe I did say I was going to cut back on my Blog reading but hey, the servants of the Dark Prince have always been a capricious lot ;-) .
The idea is straightforward enough, build and paint a squad in February. Of course, it's never that straight forward: Which army? Which squad? Which system?

Terrain Tile 3 - The Little Sister


Greetings Sinners!

40k has taken something of a backseat for me just lately, but I'm still busy beavering away on my terrain tiles and I thought I'd share my latest tile with you good people.
I'm still enjoying the hobby side of things thanks to the new Necromunda/Shadow Wars. Both games have really captured my imagination and appeal to my narrative nature much more than 8th edition has. Naturally, this has led to even more procrastination as I juggle between learning new rules, building and painting terrain tiles, working on my Escher gang (the Voodoo Dolls) and immersing myself in the many cool blogs that lean towards the narrative aspects of the hobby rather than the competitive side of things.....

Night Lords list: Version I

Hola fellow creatures of the night!

I've put together a first draft of my Night Lords list that I can build towards.

I'm not expecting to pull up trees but it would be nice to win a game or two at an event.

Here it is in all its glory:

Chaos Lord with Jump Pack, Claws of the Black Hunt, Night Haunters Curse

Chaos Sorcerer in Terminator Armour with Force Axe and Combi-Melta

Winged Daemon Prince

5 Chaos Marines with Missile Launcher

5 Chaos Marines with Missile Launcher

10 Cultists

5 Raptors with 2 Melta Guns, Lightning Claws on the leader and an Icon of Despair

5 Raptors with 2 Melta Guns, Lightning Claws on the leader and an Icon of Despair

5 Warp Talons

5 Terminators, 4 with Combi-Plasmas, 1 Autocannon and all have Power Axes

10 Chosen with 5 Plasma Guns and an Icon of Vengeance

Rhino

5 Havocs with 4 Missile Launchers

Hellbrute with Twin Lascannons and a Missile Launcher


This leaves me with 100 points which I'm not sure what to do with.

During a game I played against Iain his spawn gave me a nasty shock when they charged Logan. I didn't realise they did a flat 2 damage which each wound.

So I may take 3 of those but I'm open to other suggestions!
