I am still playing Warhammer 40K and I am still playing my Daemons without allies. I am really enjoying the Flying Monstrous Circus build I have been playing since right after the book released. In addition to the Keeper of Secrets and 2 Daemon Princes pictured above, I have also added a third Daemon Prince, Great Unclean One, Lord of Change, and Fateweaver to the mix. Currently, I am painting up the third Daemon Prince and the Great Unclean One as our escalation league moves into 1750 points. Now, I know the popular choice is the Bloodthirster, and I agree he is full of badassery; however… Read more »
The hobby net has been alive with the news that legendary miniature sculptor Kev “Goblinmaster” Adams was attacked during a burglary on his home. He was badly beaten, and while his injuries are extensive he has been discharged from hospital. He will need
A cool video showing some of the great art that will be in the upcoming Imperial Armour 12: The Fall of Orpheus. This looks like it will be even better than the last volume.
Well, day after the Daemons codex is out, I gotta play against them with my Space Wolves! We did 1750(usually do 2k but decided to go a little smaller due to time and he wanted to start slightly smaller). We rolled for all the startup shtuff, and here’s how it turned out: Mission type: Purge the Alien Deployment type: weird diagonal deployment that I always forget the name of No Night Fighting(YAY) Warlord Trait(Daemons): His Warlord(Fateweaver) causes Instant Death in Melee Warlord Trait(Space Puppies): Warlord and units within 12″ roll an extra dice when running 1750 Space Pups Rune Priest: Divination Rune Priest: Divination Wolf Priest: Runic Armor, Saga of the Hunter*Warlord* 5 Wolfguard: 3 Combi-Plasma, 2 Terminator armored, 1 with a cyclone missile launcher 15 Bloodclaws: 2 Flamers 10 Grey Hunters: 2 Flamers, Power Weapon 10 Grey Hunters 10 Grey Hunters: 2 Plasma Guns, Wolf Standard 10 Grey Hunters: 2 Plasma Guns, Wolf Standard Vindicator 6 Long Fangs: 5 Missile Launchers 6 Long Fangs: 5 Missile Launchers And the new Daemons consisted of… Fatechicken(rolled a 3 on Biomancy and Pyromancy, a 4 on Telepathy, and took the Primaris Divination power) Great Unclean One: Level 3 Psyker(Nurgle), Exalted rewards(rolled a 5 so goes back into reserve with 1 wound the first time after he dies) 20 Bloodletters: Bloodreaper(rerolls Invulns), Bloodbanner thingy that aids one charge per game 20 Pink Horrors: Iridescent Horror(+1Wound It Will Not Die), took the Primaris Power of Tzeentch 20 Plague Bearers: Poisen Banner(unit is Poisened2+[once per game?]), Plague Champ(got 3+ armor save) 15 Flesh Hounds Daemon Prince: Nurgle, 3+ armor save, Wings, rolled same Exalted Reward as Great Unclean one Whoa that was alot of rolling! having two MC’s that come back to life once is pretty handy, even if it is only with one wound! Here is how the board looked(Long Fangs on the hill anybody?). Daemons won first turn, took the side with the calculater on it, so deployed. Pink Horrors far left, Bloodletters to their right in between the two medium sized hills. the 3 MC’s went on the grey hill roughly in the middle of Daemon deployment zone, while the Plaguebearers went on the far right. The dogs went in reserve. I deployed my Wolf Priest with my Blood Claws across from his Pink Horrors(didn’t Outflank this time). All the Grey Hunters go to the middle or right side in front of the large hill thingy.
Thank you for all the great feedback on my mad scientist rules for fighting Challenges.
Hamster 52 is at it again.
We’ve recently launched a new hobby blog focussing on the Great Crusade / Horus Heresy era. With the release of ‘Horus Heresy Book 1: Betrayal’ and the continued brilliance of the Horus Heresy series from Black Library its been quite easy to lose ourselves to the background, imagery and scale of war portrayed within. So, we decided to launch a new blog to track our exploits and we have some new contributors with Heresy Era armies of their own. Check out our progress at WH30K
From Games Day UK, here is a video of the Battle of Isstvan III.
