Imperial Guard vs Inquisition and Knights (mechanicum proxie): The first blow

My first game in the escalation campaign and its against the combined forces of the Mechanicum (using an alliance of inquisition and knights to proxy it). As the game is only 600 points, we use a 4x4 city fight table, with purge the alien mission. Wish me luck.

Dark Eldar Reinforcements

Surprisingly a friend of mine has decided to get rid of his old dark eldar force in order to make some room for different models (probably imperial guard and his million fliers) and just gave me his models. Knowing I have an old 3rd edition dark eldar force he knew I would happily accept as his models are all old school as well. So I thought I would show off the state of my dark eldar force as it is right now.

Space Wolves vs Grey Knights 1500: Duel for the Emperors favour

With the new release of codex space wolves, i had to give them a spin and the grey knights ended up being my opponent. Obviously my wolf lord has come under the eye of an inquisitor who isn’t too happy with his conduct and has sent in the big boys to deal with him. The game is a 1500 point game of crusade, with hammer and anvil deployment.

Astra Militarum: Priest vs commissar

For my imperial guard force I am contemplating which of the advisors I should add in to help my infantry out. The obvious choices are adding in either a few Commissars OR Ministorum priest but I don’t have the points to add in both. So the question is, which advisor do I go for?

Codex: Space Wolves Review

 Once again a new codex has come out and it’s time for my little review of it. While I do have a space wolf army it has been a long time since it has seen the light of day, so I am hoping the new dex can stir something inside me to crack it out again. We have already seen the new dreads and fliers, but let us hope there is something else to this release.

Tale of 4 Gamers: an escalating campaign

At the gaming club we are starting a slow escalation campaign between 4 of us, in order for all of the participants to gradually paint and build up a new force. For this I will be using my Imperial guard, as I have been meaning to get them sorted after over a year of a lot of bits just sitting in my house.

Orks vs. Astra Militarum 1500: Guns of the Emperor

After the release of Codex: Orks it made me want to test it out, and a friend of mine has wanted to face orks with a mostly infantry imperial guard army for a while. So we now had an opportunity to play the sort of game he wanted. This is a 1500 point game of Orks vs. Astra militarum.
