This is a new venture for me – taking on Ad Mech & Knights and with a Vigilus Ablaze Mission! Sort of, kind of, dreading this. It’ll be the most shooty army I have faced for a long time and I’m not sure how I’ll hold up. We will be playing a mission of Vigilus Defiant, we rolled on the day for this. Never miss an article?

A win would be nice but there are elements of pure destruction like my newly completed Leman Russ and then there […] The post Vigilus Ablaze Mission – Ad Mech & Knights vs Astra Militarum – 2,000 Points appeared first on Warhammer 40K Blog.

So at the end of may I attended the first GT pu on by an amazing local groupCOASTAL WARGAMINGThese guys really know how to get events going. Terrain was great (this is most important to note as there have been several GTs missing the mark on this lately). Missions were fun! Event was a blast. All good people and good times. No bad games or bad feelings that I experienced.Unfortunately, this was back in MAY (really before Caladius were SUPER EXPLODING. But if you look back at my unit reviews, I had said this was the unit to use and the Telemon was fading) so I forget most of the details to write up a more extensive Batrep. I do know I discussed in in Hobby Progress on last month's episode of our Allies of Inconvenience Podcast, so check that out if you want to hear more.First off my Army. I played Custodes for the event and took home Second for Painting (lost to a Wobbly Modeler using their board from Adepticon, which is an impressive thing if you've never seen it).My list was as followsCustodes Battalion- 197
Alright people, now here's something a little different. A few years back, I claimed I wanted to use the imperial knight kit to make something fun out of it. Well as slow as I am, I can also be a stubborn one sometimes and the idea never really left my mind.If you don't know what I'm talking about just take a look at that brilliant picture from White Dwarf #133 :Read Moar Skullz »

Well, Adepticon was a few weeks ago. I have had plenty of time to recover (I took extra vacation afterwards for family time. If you ever go, especially if driving, I highly recommend this approach). Now I should start sharing my experience. Over the next week I'll be posting numerous articles covering it including-A Song of Ice and Fire by CMoN-40k Team Tournament-Making our Team Tournament board-Horus Heresy Knight Fight-Kings of War Big Battle-Medeival Times-Space Hulk-Bonus Roadshow Podcasts!-And it will all wrap up with our Allies of Inconvenience post Adepticon podcast!This was my 4th Adepticon and it was as fun as ever. This year I went into it signing up for as many events with models provided day 1 and 2. Just took a lot of personal prep pressure off (which got put right back on later, but I'll talk about that when I get to the 40k team tournament this year). And man did this approach pay off big time. I had a lot of fun games starting with my introduction to the A Song of Ice and Fire game by Cool Mi
First episode of 2019! We start off as usual with hobby progress (to include some talk about the Lucius Pattern Drop Pod and Coastal Wargaming Group!) For our first segment, we heavily talk about the upcoming White Dwarf Assassin release and how we see them being employed by the savvy Imperial General. Our second segment we discuss what the difference between "Allies" and "Soup" is before closing off with some discussion of... a less than spectacular Forge World model.And apologies for the Audio Quality this time.

On eBay this week is another "downsizing of a DBM/FoG army" ADLG army sale, this time a nicely presented 200+ point 15mm Teutonic army including a wide range of options to form several different variations of this legendarily punchy force.All the figures have been based and magnabased for storage and transit, and have been double-varnished (Army Painter + Testors Dullcote) for tabletop handling.Here's the link to the auction which ends on Sunday 14th October, around 5pm UK timeThey are based with a snow effect, which on a bigger DBx army can seem a bit limiting by making it harder to do possible morphs into other forces - but with ADLG armies being smaller it's entirely feasible to have a dedicated Teutonic winter-war themed army like this as a stand-alone force.These guys were originally part of a much bigger DBM/FoG army now being downsized to ADLG, and the sharp-eyed amongst you may have even spotted some of them appearing on the Madaxeman website in several battle reports as part of the legendar
