Today I bring you my second outing against John’s Eldar. We are playing 1,750 points again at Boards and Swords Hobbies. I won the last game so was expecting a more powerful list from John and I took 100 Astra Militarum Infantry. Never miss an article? A Subscribe! Astra Militarum List I messed up this list. I wanted to take a Brigade of Catachans now that Chris from the Unrelenting Brush had finished my next batch of Catachan infantry. But I didn’t pack correctly and forgot my three Catachan Hellhounds which would’ve been my Fast Attack option. So I had […] The post 100 Astra Militarum Infantry vs Eldar with a Wraith Knight – 1,750 points appeared first on Warhammer 40K Blog.
It's been a while since I played against Chris' Genestealer Cult and I'm sure he has some new tricks up his sleeve. The post Genestealer Cult vs Cadian, Steel Legion & Catachan – 2,000 points appeared first on Warhammer 40K Blog.
It’s back to the Death Guard for the second time this year, but this time I’ll use Cadians & Catachans to take them on in this 1,750 point battle at Boards and Swords. Never miss an article?

My Catachan Regiment is complete! For now. It's been a while in the making but I am really happy with the force both in terms of appearance and functionality. The post Catachan Regiment appeared first on Warhammer 40K Blog.
We finally managed to revisit the 40K 1v1v1 Wellspring Mission. After the first try was a bit unbalanced, we tweaked some aspects to try and make it fairer. The post 40K 1v1v1 – Eldar vs Astra Militarum vs Chaos appeared first on Warhammer 40K Blog.
It’s been a while, but I have now managed to get a game in against the Dark Angels. Those of you that have been paying attention may have noticed I didn’t attend the tournament I had planned to go in early March. My partner’s Grandad passed away around then and this meant I’ve had to postpone my attendance. Hopefully, I’ll attend another event at some point this year. Never miss an article? Subscribe!

My Hellhounds are done! All three, no less! As for painting Hellhounds, this is how it went… I am no pro, but I hope that this process helps or inspires someone else to slap some paint onto their tanks! Never miss an article? Subscribe! Base Camouflage – Painting Hellhounds I already have my Cadia Camo down to a T with the airbrush. I wanted something different for my Catachans to set them apart. I went for Castallen Green, then Loren Forest with XV-88 areas/stripes. My Cadians are Castallen Green and Zandri Dust. The Loren Forest is lighter and the XV-88 is […] The post Painting Hellhounds – Catachan – Completed appeared first on Warhammer 40K Blog.
This article comes to you off the back of the Getting Started series. It was suggested that the Getting Started series should contain a section about Astra Militarum Mechanised Infantry – but I felt that was a little in-depth for such a series. So here it is now as it’s own stand-alone article. Never miss an article? Subscribe! All points are pre Chapter Approved 2018. That being said, note that Chimeras will be 20 points cheaper when Chapter Approved 2018 arrives. So if you’re taking a mechanised list with say 3 Chimeras, you will save 60 points now! What is […] The post Astra Militarum Mechanised Infantry Lists appeared first on Warhammer 40K Blog.
I have got a new battle report today for you! It’s 1,500 of Astra Militarum taking on the Black Templars – who I’ve never played before. The battle was at Boards & Swords and we used the Urban Jungle Scenery from Go To Ground Wargaming. This battlefield is using 2 Large Sets – Go to Ground currently has 25% off on small sets if you wanted to get started. My little bit of research told me they would possibly be melee focussed because of their ability to re-roll failed charges. But other than that I just expected Marines.

I’m on a roll! Autocannons have been done and now my three Catachan Cyclops Demolition Vehicles are complete too! This is the first part of my Catachan force done. What is pretty awesome about this is that the Cyclops is a Heavy Support choice and three make a Spearhead Detachment – plus a single HQ, which could be a Psyker. Come to think of it, a great HQ to bring with these would be a Catachan Tank Commander with a Demolition Cannon! Someday maybe. Brutal Strength would all him to re-roll the number of shots on the Cannon. And with […] The post Cyclops Demolition Vehicles Completed appeared first on Warhammer 40K Blog.
I’ve begun my Catachan regiment already! After saying it might be a few months! I saw a couple of Hellhounds on eBay for £20 and one on a Facebook group for £25 and thought I’d make the plunge. Now I have begun, it’s time to look at painting Catachan tanks! Forgeworld also has free shipping on orders over £75 so I grabbed three Cyclops Demolition vehicles too. Never miss an article?
