Having now acquired the full play-mat, rulebook and cards to complement our copy of Wings of Vengeance, Owen and I take to the skies once again to try out Aeronautica Imperialis 2nd Edition!
Finally, something from the dim past of Rogue Trader and new menaces unique to the Blackstone Fortress!Chaos BeastmenHorned abhumans renowned for their ferocity and physical strength, Chaos Beastmen have fled their persecution at the hands of the Imperium and thrown in their lot with the Dark Gods.Negavolt CultistsNegavolt Cultists are Chaos-worshipping renegades of the Adeptus Mechanicus who fuse themselves with corrupt machinery that channels their own pain and hatred into of arcs of warp-infused energy that leaps from their electro goads.Whew! It's with a great sense of accomplishment that I've finished the entire core box set. I'm not sure that I've EVER done this despite having painted several thousand GW models over the years!So, what's next? Expansions, of course! To date I've purchased everything GW has made for this game and still plenty to paint for both the explorers and hostiles. I also have a really nifty set of 3D terrain tiles on the way to replace the card tiles from the box...These were desig
This huge, what I think is a, Planetary Defence Weapon was part of the huge Warhammer 40,000 diorama at Warhammer World. The post WH40K Planetary Defence Weapon appeared first on Felix's Gaming Pages.
Another week goes by (Week #45) and at least it was not as bad as the past few weeks. Warhammer 40K seems to be my main concentration as I await the new rules for BMG (3rd Edition this Christmas). The painting is not going as fast as I would like, but it is slowly getting there. This past week my 'Redemptor Dreadnought' and 'Primaris Captain' were completed, I have 2 Units of 'Primaris Eliminators' ready to go next on the table, and I spent the weekend getting some more models assembled.This past Friday, AdeptiCon also released a sneak preview of the upcoming schedule for 2020, and there are still some events that are missing (just like last year, Steamforged Games is late to the party in submitting events).With my shift in wanting to play Warhammer 40K recently, I am now looking into these events. Mainly I am interested in the Warhammer 40K Friendly on Friday. If it is like last year, it is a 1500 Point single Detachment event, and it is meant just to have a good time. Hon
Backing up the Chaos Space Marines are contingents from traitorous Astra Militarum regiment!Traitor GuardsmenRenegades and deserters hailing from dozens of different Astra Militarum regiments, these Traitor Guardsmen obey their Chaos Space Marine masters with sycophantic loyalty, gunning down intruders with overwhelming firepower.Rogue PsykersRogue Psykers are among the greatest risks to the Imperium, for their latent powers can lead to daemonic possession or sometimes even full-blown warp breaches. To encounter such dangerous psykers is to risk one’s very soul…Almost done!
In my 2000 point Imperial Fists army I am building, I am going to be running 2 Battalion Detachments, which means that I need 4 HQ models. The purpose of this army to have a little variety with the newer models than what I had years past with my older armies, so a lot of Primaris models and some newer vehicles (as already shown with my 'Primaris Eliminators' and 'Redemptor Dreadnought')The 4 HQ's I have planned for my list are a 'Primaris Captain', 'Primaris Librarian', 'Primaris Chaplain', and 'Tor Garadon'. So with that the first of my HQ models is a 'Primaris Captain'. In the photos below, I had elected to leave off the "Iron Halo" spikes, because I know some day in the future they would have broken off in my bag. He is also armed with Stalker Bolt Rifle since his primary objective will be providing support for my 'Primaris Eliminators'.

Obsidius MallexEver since becoming trapped aboard the Blackstone Fortress, the Chaos Lord Obsidius Mallex has strived to bend its terrible weaponry to his will and become a new power in the galaxy.Chaos Space MarinesHailing from Obsidius Mallex’s warband, the Servants of the Abyss, these towering Chaos Space Marines became trapped alongside their lord when an empyric cataclysm caused their dread cruiser, Impaler, to become fused with the Blackstone Fortress.
I finally finished another model, it has been a couple of weeks, but at least it is completed. I picked up the 'Redemptor Dreadnought' at the Michigan GT this past month from one of the vendor tables, it did not come with a box or decals, but it was only priced at $50 which is a $15 savings (I did not need a box anyways, and I had some decals from a previous model). While building it, I should have made the main gun interchangeable, but instead elected to just glue in the Gatling Gun, I am not going to be a competitive player, and the Gatling Gun is good for me.I am also really liking the "Pittsburgh" look for my Imperial Fists color scheme, Black/Yellow is one of my favorite color combinations and it makes painting the yellow much faster (since it is in limited places).

It was a pretty quiet week in the hobby/gaming front and not much was actually completed. I did continue working on my 'Redemptor Dreadnought' and it will be posted tomorrow morning.Renegade Open is just under 3 weeks away and I still have to finalize/submit my lists and get a few more games in. My plan is to get a practice game in the weekend before so that the rules are fresh for the event. Then once we get back, I think BMG will be quiet until we get our hands on III edition.Models Completed: 0Games Played: 0
There are strange creatures haunting the shadows in the Blackstone Fortress!Spindle DronesSeemingly formed of the same substance as the Blackstone Fortress, Spindle Drones serve as its white blood cells, swarming to attack any foreign intruder. The more resistance is offered, the more aggressive and dangerous they become.Ur-GhulUr-ghuls are troglodytic predators whose speed is matched only by their blind savagery. Normally found hunting prey within they Aeldari webway, how they made their way onto the Blackstone Fortress in such numbers is a mystery.As if these weren't bad enough, there seems to be a bit of a Chaos infestation as well...
Here is a overhead shot of the diorama between the forces of Chaos and the might of the Imperium. Though I think the Chaos forces have the advantage in numbers… As you can see it is huge, so big that it doesn’t even fit into the shot. I have posted a few things from this diorama already including a Warlord Titan at Warhammer World, a Chaos Vindicator, a Chaos Knight, a Forge World Chaos Warhound Titan, a Chaos Stormlord and a landed Legion Kharybdis Assault Claw. The post Diorama at Warhammer World appeared first on Felix's Gaming Pages.

Taddeus the PurifierTaddeus is a Ministorum Priest brought to the Blackstone Fortress by a holy vision seen in the burning remains of a particularly impertinent Imperial Navyman. Taddeus hopes to bring the Imperial Cult to Precipice, as well as purging any taint from the Blackstone Fortress itself.Pious VorneOnce a hive ganger, Pious Vorne now fights alongside Taddeus the Purifier, having discovered the joys of faith (not to mention burning heretics). Vorne has a pathological love of incendiary execution and seeks to slay any heretics who see the Blackstone Fortress as a refuge from the Emperor’s light.UR-025UR-025 is an oddity, even by the standards of Precipice. Ostensibly an aged Imperial Robot in the service of a Magos of the Adeptus Mechanicus, it seems there are secrets to UR-025’s past that may be revealed as you play. UR-025 is interested not in the Blackstone Fortress itself, but the seemingly sentient constructs that inhabit it.The robot is one of my favorite models from the set - the
Abaddon the Despoiler was painted to level 5 quality with NMM metallics. It was built with the cloak and face mask options.
