Huzah, got some gaming in for a change! A fellow at the club has gotten enough of his Nova Guard painted that we threw down a 1250 point game of Titanicus.

I put up two tables, but before we got to the game I had time in my hands and went a bit overboard playing with the rest of my models in case someone else came down to see what was going on. You know miniature gamers, it's easy to tempt them into new games by showing them some shinies

The game itself, a simple meeting engagement to the death amidst the toxic sludge swamps. No visibility, bogged down wherever one goes, guns in the jungle. Just perfect.

Fairly straighforward affair for fun as the Defensor player was learning the game. I ran a full Venator maniple with Tempestus rules and had a pair of Thunderhawks carpet bombing the place with Strafing Run stratagem (the best excuse for making nwooooom noises) against his Axiom, which got stuck in the mud in front and pincered between my dogs until there was chain of exploding Hounds in turns 3-5 in the middle over the dying Reaver while my leader aboard Damnatio Memoriae kept on hammering everything with its melta cannon. In the end, only the Warlord of the Nova Guard stood, bleeding and bruised only a breath away from death, yet defiant. Having killed two Hounds and his Reaver against three of my Hounds, it was another notch for the Ashen Gods.

Refreshing to play on a marsh table for once

Thanks for including game shots! I love it when plogs show the models in action, it's like the last step before a model is finally done is to baptize it in fire. Throw in some scale terrain and a fully themed board, buddy, you got yourself an exalt.

I agree, it's great to see finished models in action. Especially on pretty boards, whenever possible.

Another buzzer in the works, more chainfists for everyone as Flagellum Dei (Scourge of God) strides forth!

I agree with Albertorius, I like how it's coming together. The chain fist looks really scary. I'm imagining the princeps scraping it against the walls of a habblock like Freddy Kreuger!Are those Astartes chainswords for fingers?

Yes they are, from the Prospero box mk. III marines. It's a similar construction that Ruina Superborum has in its left hand, I like the over the top brutalism of it more than the shovel of doom that's in the kit.

It's dangerous to start building, one might get carried away... by the Eraser of Deeds, Delictor Profectuum and his bigger boomsticks. It's time to get some proper missiles in 'ere

Dakka is easier to lug around if you just roll loads of it into one convenient tube, it's genious.

The helmet crests are just the best, all three of the Legio's Warlords have 'em and I still got some for one or two more in the bitz box. The psi-titan didn't, not its style. I should come up with a use for the poor sods whose heads have been scalped for this, though

More Warhounds too, eh? Both had some leg surgery done on them to either get a more comfortable lean on the bunker or to run properly with curled toes and raised knees. The second Twinferno dog will also have a burning emplacement on the base for funsies.

Gaming, ahoy!

Me and Dagany were at it again, this time trying out the Wreck of Arutan from the main rulebook. His 2500 or so points of Astorum would surge forwards against a thin 1500 point line of Favilla (played as Praesagius here for style, since they are the defenders in the original scenario), their objective to smash through and destroy the crashed carrier ship behind them before any survivors can claw their way out. Dogged resistance and general chaos slowed them down, however, and they tarried too long. On the fourth turn, my 2500 points of reserves burst from the wreck and roared in anger as their counter charge broke the Astorum into retreat. With casualties 6-3 in favour of the Ashen Gods, the Warp Runners were set packing though it had seemed very different just a moment before.

Got to try out the psi-titan, what a beast. Given I was facing a superior force with orbital strikes, strafing runs and what not, the first three or four turns would be hard. I shot Scatter Mines (dreadnoughts and infantry, clawing at their ankles ) on one side to harry their lighter elements and used the Quake psychic powers on the other flank to try and limit their mobility, which worked out pretty damn well. The Astorum floundered for a turn and I could bide my time even as bombs fell on my line. Sure, the abomination fell after two turns, taking the whole enemy front to kill it through tracers and smoke pillars, but in that time it managed to kill one Warlord with the help of my flanking Reaver and kept them busy instead of advancing full throttle. Must try again later on, especially supporting lighter maniples that grant you enough activations to have free reign on targeting.

Happy wargaming

Since it's too wet to prime, it's time to build some more knights. Eventually, I shall blast through the pile of shame

Some painting happened on the Cerastoi, but more on that later when they are finished.

Got some gaming in again, 4000 points of Epic Armageddon as my XIV butted heads against an armoured Ork force. Due to unexpectedly light aircover, my two Thunderhawks full of terminators smacked right against the Orks' artillery positions and proceeded to absolutely wreck hordes of buggies and bikers sent against them in countercharge. While this crumbling of their right flank was happening, their gunwagons pushed too eagerly forwards and met a line bristling with lascannons. After even the warlord in his mighty gargant fell down in flames, it was clear this day would go the XIV.

Lovely Epic battle reports. Sounds like the XIVth have had some great successes lately - the Terminators weathering the artillery is also exactly what you'd want out of the Death Guard. Stubborn, resilient, they tough!

They sure have, his army is gorgeous. If only it one day managed to hit something as well!

Indeed! Though it might also have something to do with my opponent rolling 2 succesful 4+ rolls out of 14 in the fight before I reaped his bikers down, buuuut... Still made it with only one terminator lost from both detachments in the end
