Further Mistakes Were (NOT!) Made

Gentle Readers (and other people that somehow ended up here...?), I do try to not live down to the very worst stereotypes about gamers... I HAVE been trying to rein in the spending and get stuff done... deplete the lead mountain, rather than adding to it.  I have to admit, I have gone a little overboard in the last couple months - with all the Necromunda stuff I picked up... and then the Apocalypse stuff.... and a couple things FOR Apocalypse detachments... And then I told myself, that was IT - no more spending for the rest of the year. Maybe even the next couple years! Sweet Mother of Zeus, I have ENOUGH to paint!!So, when I was approached by a local gamer that was trying to get rid of his Imperial Guard Collection, I actually said "No, thanks, I've got enough"...But then I was thinking of a friend of mine that I thought might be interested and so a couple days later I asked for details... What did the seller have...? what did he want for them..? I am, however, a sucker for a good deal... And, friends,

Coming of the Comet

Twotwill Island, Xoxigar Tertium (Imperial World)3.537.019.M42The Asuryani of the Biel-Tim Fleet shifted their focus from Xoxigar Secondus, to the more lush Xoxigar Tertium. Farseer Thymiltelyir foretold of a comet making landfall on a remote island of the world. At the centre of the comet would be an extremely rare element that was vital to the continued survival of their fleet. The warhost under his command had hoped that they would be leaving the hated Astartes behind on Xoxigar Secondus, but as they arrived at the site, there they were... just waiting for them... As the two forces approached to engage each other, debris from the comet coming apart started falling from the sky. FORCESAeldari Forces of the Biel-Tim FleetAsuryani Battalion Detachment - Biel-Tim Fleet (as Biel-Tan) HQ Farseer - 4 PL - War MasterWarlock - 3 PLTroopsDire Avengers (5) - 4 PLDire Avengers (5) - 4 PLDire Avengers (5) - 4 PLDire Avengers (5) - 4 PLElitesHowling Banshees (5) - 5 PLAsuryani Battalion Detachme

Wolves Strike!

On Thursday afternoon I had another game of Warhammer 40,000: Apocalypse - this time with Orion  and his Space Wolves.A Warhost of the Biel-Tim Fleet, having successfully executed a mission against the Mon-Keigh, regrouped at the rally point and prepared for extraction through the webway...Just as they were making their final preparations for extraction, the wolf-lords of Fenris struck! They were wild creatures, more animal-like than even the basest of the Mon-Keigh...FORCESAeldari Forces of the Biel-Tim FleetAsuryani Battalion Detachment - Beil-Tim Fleet (as Biel-Tan) HQ Farseer - 4 PL - War MasterWarlock - 3 PLTroopsDire Avengers (5) - 4 PLDire Avengers (5) - 4 PLDire Avengers (5) - 4 PLElitesHowling Banshees (5) - 5 PLAsuryani Battalion Detachment - Beil-Tim Fleet (as Biel-Tan) HQ Autarch (+ Warp Jump Generator) - 6PL - WarlordTroopsRangers (5) - 5 PLRangers (5) - 5 PLRangers (5) - 5 PLFast AttackWarp Spiders (10) - 12 PLAsuryani Spearhead Detachment - Beil-Tim Fleet (as Biel-Tan)&

Assault on Throshi Station

On Wednesday evening Other Tim and I tried a smaller game of Apocalypse - each of us had around 100 points...Throshi Station, Xoxigar Secondus (Mechanicus Forge World)4.525.019.M42There was a brief, desperate cry for help, and then silence. Throshi Station had gone dark.In the following hours, rumours spread of a massacre. The Eldar had come from seemingly nowhere, in the middle of the night, and killed everyone in the remote mining and processing station on Xoxigar Prime. This followed the modus operandi of the perfidious Eldar - strike with surprise and excessive violence and then disappear as quickly as they had arrived... except... they didn't disappear this time. A force was holding the station for some reason, at least temporarily. Long enough for a company of the Emperor's Brethren Space Marine Chapter to mount a counter-attack!FORCESAeldari Forces of the Biel-Tim FleetAsuryani Battalion Detachment - Beil-Tim Fleet (as Biel-Tan) HQ Farseer - 4 PL - War MasterWarlock - 3 PLTroopsDire Avengers

Eldar Super Heavy Detachment - Tempest/Scorpion Heavy Grav-Tanks

I finished the last of my Tempest Heavy Grav-Tanks last night - just in time for this afternoon's game of Apocalypse against Other Tim.A complete Super Heavy Detachment of Tempest Heavy Grav-Tanks (being used as Scorpions). The models are old Armorcast models, which I picked up off of eBay over the last year.The latest addition.I've decided to give each a name as it seems that's an aeldari thing to do... Like the names of their Titans, their names are rather long. The short version of this tanks name is "T'chylmylwynbil". The literal translation of the long name is "The Five-Legged Beast That Stalks Its Prey by Night, Which Lasts Forever"Oh, those Eldar...I have come up with names for the others as well....This one is "Dilytichylmywil"  (again, the shorter version - or nick name). The full translation is "Flowering Plant with Excessively Large Sex Organs That Makes the Mon-Kee Blush, But is Very Sustaining and Tastes Good in Soup".I assure you it's much more poetic (and makes more sense) in it's ori

Another Tempest Heavy Grav-Tank

(Just need to finish up the last one and they can be fielded as a complete Super Heavy Detachment!)An Eldar Tempest Heavy Grav-Tank from Armorcast.Another ViewThe two of them together!The next one will have a light turquoisy-blue...Here they are with a few other models to get a sense of scale. At some point I might make a base for them and raise them off the ground a touch to look a little bigger/taller and like they're floating a little bit...?Coming Soon to Tim's Miniature Wargaming Blog:I played a game of Apocalypse last night with Other Tim and another one this afternoon with Orion... so hopefully I'll get some game reports posted for those...After that...? I think I'll crank out the last Tempest and THEN I'll get cracking on some Necromunda. I'd wanted to start a (trail) campaign THIS weekend so I could wrap it up before September when I play to run another with a few more people...

Elsewhere on Elamdavar

After Sunday's first crack at the apocalypse, everyone was anxious to have another go... and... since it's summer holidaze... We played another game on Monday. This one went a bit quicker and we played, more or less, to it's conclusion.While the Thaestalyrdaes Craftworld was defending the ruins of Belylath, another fierce battle was brewing elsewhere on the Exodite World of Elamdavar around the desert settlement of Gilfahith.... Here the forces of the Biel-Tim fleet and Rainbow Warriors Contemporary Dance Company faced another invading horde of Hivefleet Haemorrhoid!FORCESCombined Aeldari Forces Asuryani Battalion Detachment - Beil-Tim Fleet (as Biel-Tan) HQ Farseer - 4 PL War MasterWarlock - 3 PLTroopsDire Avengers (5) - 4 PLDire Avengers (5) - 4 PLDire Avengers (5) - 4 PLDire Avengers (5) - 4 PLElitesHowling Banshees (5) - 5 PLAsuryani Battalion Detachment - Beil-Tim Fleet (as Biel-Tan) HQ Autarch (+ Warp Jump Generator) - 7PL - WarlordTroopsRangers (5) - 5 PLRangers (5) - 5 PL

The Defence of Elamdavar

I picked up the new Warhammer 40,000: Apocalypse rules yesterday... and some Data Cards... and fancy dice... (But I didn't buy the new movement trays, because I made my own! I need to make a bunch more now, though!).Originally we planned to have Just a family game on Sunday... Finnegan and I could play my Imperial Engines along with a detachment or two of footslogging Imperial Guard against the combined might of the Grrrlz Aeldari (Amanda's Drukhari, Keira's Asuryani and Harlequins). But then we thought we might invite others over to play as well and ended up inviting the kids' friend Ian over along with his massive horde of bug-things.BACKGROUNDThe exodite world of Elamdavar is in dire peril! An unforseen invasion of the Tyranids of Hivefleet Haemorrhoid has begun! The Thaestalyrdaes Craftworld, who have strong ties to these exodites, were among the first to respond.A raiding party of Drukhari also seem to have showed up... Sometimes they find if valuable to stay in their cousins "good books"... and there we

Eldar Tempest Heavy Grav Tank

In preparation for some Apocalyptic action this weekend, I finished up the first of my (three) Eldar Tempest Heavy Grav Tanks the I have. this first one, I picked up last fall, I picked another up a month or so ago... and the third, well... it's still in the mail. But I figured I might as well get three so I could field a full Super Heavy Detachment with them.An old Eldar Tempest Heavy Grav Tank produced by Armorcast under license from GW.Now, there aren't any rules for a Tempest Heavy Grav-Tank anymore... but there is the Scorpion, which is armed with a "Twin Scorpion Pulsar" so I figured that's close enough...In it's day it was a pretty big model... compared to the original rhinos and the Falcon's that armorcast made... now... I guess it's still bigger than the current plastic Falcons, so... hopefully I can still get away with it!When I actually finish painting one of the Falcons I have, I'll post some pictures of them together for scale.Coming Soon to Tim's Miniature Wargaming Blog:Played our first Ap
