Posted on November 10th, 2017 under , , , , , . Posted by

The painting process begins. I intend to try to imitate and corrupt the colour scheme used by one of my gaming groups armies. The main dreadnought will be painted like his black templars only rusted and corrupted to serve a darker purpose. The Painting Time to experiment with weathering powders. Not bad for a first pass.

Posted on September 29th, 2017 under , , , , , . Posted by

Here we go stats for apocalypse Chaos 51,000pts, Imperial 46,000pts. The attack on Altum is the final main mission before we deviate and play battlefleet gothic and then see which characters can be evacuated from the planet by the losing side. The forces of chaos gain victory points through breaking through the walls of the city. Four structures [2 Bunkers, firestorm redoubt and Creed’s bastion] that are between the inner and outer wall are worth 2 victory points to chaos if destroyed and 2 to the imperium if they survive. The chaos portal [in the chaos deployment zone] is worth 2…continue reading
