Fallen Mistake - A Dead-end Thought Exercise

Discordian here. So when I'm not trying to re-purpose my Fantasy models for my Dark Eldar, I also have a Grey Knight Army. And every once and awhile I try and think of new interesting ways to make them interesting again.So here is my latest attempt of convincing myself to buy new models.Fallen exist....They have the interesting distinction of being the only Chaos/Imperial units. They've got one cool character named Cypher, who's a model I own because he's cool. And I was like "Hey maybe they can add something to my GK".I even thought of a good base for converted Fallen Dudesdefinitely lose the headsBut Woof..... those rules. And I thought Gk had it bad. I'm fairly sure they're only two units in the faction, Cypher and Stern-guard without special ammunition. Which I guess isn't terrible if you plan to play them with Chaos, you know that book they come in. But even then, you start realize they aren't even good there.They cant ride in transports and they can't use any stratagems. The only special rule rule

Ahriman, Sorcerer of Tzeentch

For ten thousand years, the seeker of arcane truths known as Ahriman has roamed the galaxy in a quest to acquire every artefact, every tome and every scroll that harbours eldritch powers. Worlds burn in his shadow as he plucks these treasures from their owners by any means necessary. Resistance is the last error his enemies can make – Tzeentchian magic reshapes reality around them, a pass of the Black Staff twisting their bodies unnaturally until nothing remains but bubbling flesh. Ahriman, lord of a broken Legion; his determination is such that destiny itself bends to his whim.Painted for my brother Dennis' collection. It was fun to paint something different. The base is photoshop wizardry because he is going to finish it to match the rest of his army. I just didn't want to post the pic with an unfinished black base!It was probably a mistake because this guy is dead hard and he is absolutely going to kill me...

NOVA Narrative Recap- The Unstoppable Dreadnoughts

NOVA was this last weekend and man was it a BLAST. It is definitely a smooth run operation and I plan on going back again for a third time next year. Last year I took my all Death Rider Army to the NOVA GT and Trios. This year I intended to do the Trios again, but due to team mate issues, I instead went to DC and did the tourist thing on the day of the trios. This is one of the untold bonuses of NOVA, you are practically in Washington, and taking an uber or the Metro to the museums/monuments is easily done and worth it if you are not from the area.  But after a day of site seeing I got to jump into the NOVA Narrative! Check out their mission pack here. Some really fun and cool missions you should try at home (especially Shuttle Crash and Refinery IMO).My 2500 point army. All my armies would be made from this!I had started this article a few days ago, but now I feel I must temper my enthusiasm before I launch into the review.Edit: I leave the following 2 paragraphs for completions sake, but I wa

500 points Beginner Chaos Space Marine Army: I am Alphari-Horus

Term has officially started, with all our boarders back this evening. The house is alive with the bumps and crashes of boys trashing their bed rooms. Great to be back in the wing of things!I will be continuing on with the analysi of the Adeptus Mechanicus in Kill Team, but I have a reader request to carry out first:Howdy, I am new to 40k and just staring out with my friends. I am interested in the Chaos Space Marines. I was wondering if you could recommend a good 500pt army that I could put together. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. PS. I was thinking of either Black or Alpha Legion.Matthew WinningFirst of all Matthew, have you and your friends tried Kill Team yet? It’s a cheaper and quicker way to get started!Chaos Space Marines, now known as the Heretic Astartes, are in somewhat of a poor position for beginners. The models are getting rather dated now, unless you’re going Death Guard or Thousand Sons, and their classic Troops choice is mostly out-performed by Cultists.However, you’re requested a power

Wednesday was the third day of our Kamp Kill Team Campaign!If you haven't been following along you can find the first two instalments here:Kamp Kill Team Campaign - Day OneKamp Kill Team Campaign - Day TwoToday followed more or less the same format as the last two days - two rounds of Kill Team games followed by some climbing and some painting. The games are definitely getting shorter.ROUND FIVEIn Round Five we saw siblings battling each other... some siblings get along better than others...Harlequins vs. OrksScenario: Take PrisonersSector Mechanicus - Service HatchesScout Phase - both selected Take Forward Positions - so they had to dice off to see which actually got to make use of it.The Orks got to use the Take Forward Positions strategy.Like most games so far this week, the battle denigrated into a brawl in the middle of the Kill Zone. In the end the Harlequins tabled the Orks in three rounds. They also managed to capture Burny Sandurz and another of his waaagghband for 4 victory points... Stabba got stab

WIP The Lord of Malice

It's been a while since I've done a work in progress log. Most of my internet posting is done on Facebook and Instagram recently, but I'll never abandon the 'ol ship (blog). This was a recent commission and super fun, which I say about every project but I mean it more this time, I swear. I should get better at describing things. Anyway, here's the rundown. The figure is from creature caster and was such a joy to work on. The cleanliness of the cast was the best I've seen in a long time. Very miniscule mold lines and the sockets fit perfectly, absolutely zero warping. Here we see our Lord after some quick wetblending. I wanted to make the bone look strong, pretty much the appearance of stoney growths over marrow.  The color scheme was red white and blue, with a tilt of course but that's the scheme at it's core, a simple complimentary trifecta.Next I had to add some glowing effects. I wanted the model to say, demon, of course he's s demon but I want a DEMON. So macical properties it is! How fun.T

MORE Kill Team

Sunday a couple of the kids friends came over and we played some more Kill Team!First we spent a lot of time making up Kill Teams for da Boyz. Elderboy brought his Tyranids, Yungerboy brought Heratic Astartes. We rolled up names and everything. This took some time as we only had one copy of the rules between us - a lot longer than I'd expected... Luckily my kids Kill Teams were all ready to go!!GAME ONEFor the first game Elderboy decided he'd like to play Finnegan and his Orks...SCENARIOWe rolled for random scenarios on the table in the campaign section at the back of the book. We rolled Sweep & Clear (page 56). There were basically four objective markers - each worth 3 points for anyone that controlled them at the end of the game. Every enemy taken out was also worth a victory point. HOWEVER, if one team broke, and the other didn't that would also end the game with the team that didn't break being the victor...FORCESThe Red Killaz - Finnegan's Ork Kill TeamGrodnog Ripclaw - Boss Nob - Leader - Power Klaw
