Great color, really bold. Are you planning on decals or freehand or anything on them?

Finally got Yellowbeard to commit to a game. I assume he's doing SW, so I'm going to try out a generic SM list. It'll be nice to get my Lamenting Marines back on the table. I'll take some pics if anything great happens ( for both of us!)

Only 9 painting weekends till Adepticon..

Still need to finish my ZM Alpha Legion and that Imperial Knight. Gonna be close.

Great game last night. A SW list with a Skyhammer formation. No battle report but some pic of the mess after the SH drop.




Both YB and I rolled terrible and the game could have gone in either of our directions. My 2 vengeance batteries ended up doing more damage to me than my opponent. In the end the special rules for our formations played little part in the game. Just slugging it out.
Ironically we were killing each other with bolt pistols, bolters and HoW attacks. Combined with poor saves ( I rolled six 1’s in a row for things needing a 2+ or 3+ ) I managed to pull off a win with 10vp to 6vp.

Looking forward to a re-match!

Looks like much yellowy fun was had!

Yellowbeard: "Shop 'smart', shop Graven-mart!"
Casey's Law: "Graven: Speaking the truth and providing the rofls since '09."
Solar_Lion: "Deep in the bowels of a forge world lies a machine so terrible and purposeful that its very existence is only rumor and myth. It never sleeps and always hungers. Never satiated. Always creating, always churning out more and more. Never satisfied. It’s purpose long forgotten. It only lives to build more and more of the truly insane. The Deus ex Gravenator. Your only hope is to die in your sleep so save the last bullet for you!"
cormadepanda: "You suffer from creator syndrome."
Theophony"... and there's strippers in terminator armor and lovecraftian shenanigans afoot." Solar_Lion: "Man this sums up your blog nicely."

Love the colour of the Alphas, really pretty.

That looks like a great game regardless of the bad rolls. Got to say the armies look wonderful, your Lamenters look amazing, really stand out on the table top.

Thanks. The Yellow stands out and it nice to be something different. It's especially good when I team with Gits MW. The Green and yellow brighten up a table. ( in fact we won a painting contest together at a tourney. - Ok, he won and I was at the table)

I'm really getting into the AL, Not a chapter I was going to play. I was going with Thousand Sons, but they played only a small role in the Heresy that it would be to late to really do 30k justice.

I'll still see what FW does with the BA as I was always leading to that, but it's nice to have a "non- imperial ' army out there.

I'll carry over the XX Legion into the 40k world and use it to do A traditional CSM army. I'll mix some oft the pre-heresy stuff with the more Chaos elements to make something codex playable ( helldrakes ect) while keeping the purity of the 30 AL available and expanding.

I'd like to get more into 30k at Adeption. After the initial BoC box (minus the 10 normal marines I gave to Gits) I'll get the LR's , 2 BD and 2 Rhinos repainted in AL color. I'll have to start buying some more inf soon after.
I have a Sicaran tank on the way

Bases finally arrived ( 1/2 of them - but enough to do most of the inf and Dread )

Started working on them right away!


Next bring out the metalic parts and add some colors ( wires and piping ), The darken it up again.

They are. A rusty brown. I'll work on the plating and metals this week and then darken them up. I'l think the contrast will look good with the AL.
I have a second order of different bases that are more steel decking than the ones above. Wanted to mix and match

All most finished with my AC ALPHA LEGION. ( For now. This should get me through the games at Adepticon )


Spent what little time left on finishing the last Tank farm. The Pics are a bit blurry and dark as I had no time to set up, just a quick shot. Interesting that the pic is so color saturated.

My AL on it for scale. Better real color pic.


On to the IK.

The AL look amazing SL. You need to finish off the bases though.

Love that tank farm... such a wonderful piece of terrain... and really substantial too!

Thanks, I really like the way they came out. The bases are finished. The look I'm going for is concrete, metal debris and plating/grating. I carried over the overall look onto the sides.

My tank farm pieces total 4 and with all the small pipes and other stuff should be fun to play on. Hopefully there will be some cool stuff at AC to add to it.

I didn't like the idea of you stopping painting Lamenters in order to paint Alpha Legion, but I can live with it now that I see how pretty they are!

As for your battle with bad dice rolls - in my most recent game I caused exactly one hull point of damage in the entire first two turns, and it was 2000 points! Then I won at the start of the third turn by getting a relic off of the board. Funny for me. Felt sorry for my opponents, but it was to get a new relic for the campaign.

In M40.912, a crack commando unit was sentenced to death by a commissariat court for a series of terrible crimes and heresies they most certainly did commit during the Badab War. These men promptly escaped through the Badab blockade to the Necromunda underground. Today, still wanted by the Imperium, they survive as gangers, thugs and criminals. If you have something valuable, if no-one can help you protect it, and if they can find you, maybe you will fall victim to... The B Boys - A Tyrant's Legion Kill Team and Necromunda gang blog.

Thanks for checking on me. There is a lot of Lamenters left to do.
I'm just trying to get stuff done for Adepticon. Several of the events I'm entered in are HH games and thus way before my Lamenters.

I will be playing in a 2 day Badab Event at Adepticon as well, so I'll bring them out for sure. 1850 list and a 1000 pt ZM list. On the 2nd day we'll do a Apoc game based on the Palace of Thorns event. Supposed to be a fluff list so I should have most everything I need!

Yeah my dice are fickle, though no worse than my normal opponents. Keeping your attention on the Objectives is what wins games.

Started on my Imperial Knight ( for a Friend ). Went with a black frame with a heavy metal Drybrush, Since it's an add for a SOB army, I'm doing it mostly in Red and Black with gold Trim.

I've managed to get most of he body and Arms based.

Looking good man enjoyed the pictures of the game. I like your alpha Legionnaires to look really great. Can't wait to see what else you got on the table for us to enjoy looking at.
