My first game was what sold me on 3rd - a squad of Imperial Guardsmen killed an Avatar in the shooting phase with their lasguns. A real WTF moment there as that would/could almost never have happened in 2nd edition.

And you've got me thinking about Alpha Legion as my next vaguely unformed Marine force that will need to be properly planned and fleshed out later. If only I could get my wife to wash their resin bits for me...

So as mentioned I had a rousing 2,000 point game of 3rd edition 40k on Monday night. I was pretty happy that the Ork army scaled "back" to the earlier edition with very little fuss. In fact the only model I couldn't get into a single FOC was one of the Deff Dreds. It was a great game and was a pretty close run thing until the end. I did forget a couple of the armies rules that may (just may) have tipped things in my favor, but we didn't notice until after the fact and it didn't effect the enjoyment of the game. But next time the Greenskins will have their revenge.


Here is a shot at my deployment, we set up in opposite quarters and you can just see a Wraithlord that was set up first to force me deeper in my deployment (couldn't start within 18" of the enemy). But by turn two though I had my revenge and managed to gun it down with not very Orky accuracy and a disgusting amount of luck.


Unfortunately no one told the boys they were going up against something equally green so I think it confused them for a while who to shoot at. Don't be confused, they aren't my Eldar, turns out my opponent had the same idea of green and purple for his Eldar.......beautifully painted army, but stupidly hard to pin down.


That damn Avatar, I fed it 6 Killa Kanz and when I charged it I felt confidant they would be fine, but due to a bottle neck of terrain I just couldn't get enough klaws at once and every turn it seemed a Kan or two blew up. The good news was the Avatar took a couple of wounds from exploding baby dreads. That 5++ save is not very good.......but he is only 80 points. He managed to get through the 6 Kanz with a single wound remaining which I chose most unorky to shoot to death.


I spent several turns messing around in cover as there were 3 War Walkers doing horrible things to my Mobs on the opposite flank, I really should have sent the Kanz against them rather that the Avatar, but eventually I got up the courage to cross the divide and massed Big Shoota fire held the War Walkers in check until the Warboss and his Nobz could redress the balance.


We were trying to capture table quarters, which in the end I lost 2 uncontested to 2 contested. My opponent did a good job of holding a Falcon and Vyper in cover and zipped them out at the end of the game to contest the two quarters I held. He played it well. But if it had gone on another turn I think I would have rolled his remaining forces.

Things i learnt:
Nobz are just absolutely nasty and they rampaged through Dire Avengers, War Walkers, Guardians and were set to smash the Farseer and Warlocks leading the Eldar if the game hadn't ended.
Trukks are FAST VEHICLES! I only realized after the game so robbed myself half of their potential movement the whole game. That could have been a brutal change.
Wraithguard are a horrible unit at close range. Made the poor Dreadnought disappear into the Warp in a turn. Solution; angry Meganob on his own charged and slowly chewed his way through them.

So all in all had a great time. Awesome opponent (who I normally play X-Wing with), fabulous table and terrain and looking forward to seeing how the other armies I have rack up in 3rd. I think the Imperial Guard/Astra Militarum as I have to take a command platoon (which I don't have) and can't squadron vehicles. I do remember experimental armored company for 3rd edition I think which may work......

Will look into the ALpha Legion list now to see where I am going with them.

Thanks for reading.

So it has turned out there was no way of trimming the army to fit the two Chaos Lords and a new Dark Apostle, so one of the brothers has handed his axe back to me and is currently undergoing his conversion to the fallen priesthood. Thanks to everyone for their input and ideas and I hope to bring you the twins soon ready to lead the army. I kind of like the idea of the scholar and the warrior duo. Am also pretty damn happy with the conversion, its simple yet leaves no doubt I feel that the two are different.

I have not managed a game in a while so it was nice and it just occurred to me randomly I should snap a few pictures. I have a 7th edition game against another good friend on Sunday so will hopefully take a few more. Not sure which army I should match against his slowly growing Space Wolves, may roll a dice to choose.......

So we are a week into March and I am very happy to show off a couple of outstanding Alpha Legionnaires. This may turn into a long post, so I won't tarry with words. First up is the leader of this army. The Chaos Lord.....


I decided to keep the most heavily converted of the twins to keep as the Chaos Lord as I may use the same model in other armies into the future so it would be good to have him looking quite different to the stock model. However, I did take the knife to his twin to make him appear a little more holy (or should that be unholy) to take on the mantle of Dark Apostle.


These photos are pretty shocking, but it gets the idea across. If I was more patient I would wait for daylight to take my photos. But I am very happy with what was a very basic conversion that I think gives enough of the "cover in scripture" wacko that I feel a Dark Apostle needs to be but he still retains a large similarity to his twin. Thoughts?

So with the final models complete it can only mean one thing, the Alpha Legion are finished and its time for the army in review shots (albeit pretty crummy photos, I really need to stop photographing on the dining table).


The HQ of the army, with the Alpha Legion rules if the Lord bites the dust the Dark Apostle will immediately take over as the Warlord and therefore not give up slay the Warlord, I wonder if this rule also means Aspiring Champions can become your Warlord too?


The troops and backbone of the army, two squads of Chaos Marines and 4 squads of cultists, ably played by Necromunda Gangers. Its a lot of models and with the Alpha Legion ability to potentially recycle destroyed cultist units on a 3+ I can afford to play them fairly aggressively early on. Plus to boot the Marines and Cultists all get to infiltrate......


The elites of the army (sort of Chosen are troops for Alpha Legion). But with the Chosen, Cultists and Marines infiltrating (that's 8 units) plus the Terminators and Raptors deep striking this army could be on the enemy very quickly.


The fast attack is brought by my tiny Raptor squads. They will be a nuisance to the enemy at best, but with melta guns and melta bombs they could make an opponent regret ignoring them. I hope.


The Heavy support of the army (I don't expect much in the way of tank hunting from these guys) hopefully I will be able to really put the hurt on light infantry. Plus its another 20 power armoured bodies with pretty good firepower that will be hard to shift off objectives.


And here we have a horde of Marines. It's a pretty damn big army with 72 Power Armoured Bodies, 4 Terminators and 40 cultists, of which 80 are infiltrators and 14 deep strikers it could really put the pressure on the enemy very quickly.


With the development of the Traitor Legions book I have shifted the army to be 2 separate formations. This is the Lost and the Damned (Dark Apostle and Cultists). Allows for the Cultists to respawn (maybe).


The other formation is a Chaos Warband (which is everything else). So many Marines.

So there you have it. My completed Alpha Legion army, very happy with the overall affect. I also think they will be a handful on the tabletop which will be interesting to see. Can't wait to see them in their first game. Things i have learnt? Marines definitely lend themselves to my batch painting style, they have enough detail to still be interesting but a lot of flat areas that a basecoat, wash and highlight makes look good very easily. I am glad I used the Necromunda Gangs as it gives them a second life. Makes me think I should dig out that Marienburg warband I have half painted and turn them all into a massive free company unit for the second Empire army I want to do. Things I would do differently? Spend more time on the Characters. I did rush the Lord and Apostle, but persuaded myself that Alpha Legionnaires shouldn't stand out. I think they are good. Just perhaps not good enough. We will see, the models themselves help to lift my slightly messier than usual painting above the rank and file. I didn't burn out as quickly on these guys as I have with other armies and I can't quite put my finger on why. Hopefully I keep that momentum going into the next couple of armies.

Speaking of games, I am having a small game against my Space Wolf playing mate and his whole collection (being 1110 points....) so anyone have an idea which army I should use to continue his education into the world of 7th edition 40k? Our last game was against the Orks which was fun and I learnt that counter attacking power armoured vikings were actually pretty tough for the Boyz to handle after that first round of combat. I was thinking maybe Eldar, but that could be overly traumatic with all their insane synergies. Maybe Tyranids? They would look striking against the grey of his Wolves. He currently has little to know way of dealing with Heavy Armour so the Astra Militarum is probably out for now.

So with the Alpha Legion now behind me. I have an interesting choice. My regular X-Wing opponent (the guy who has the lovely table my orks took on the Eldar on) has proposed a 3rd edition slow grow campaign, which should help me get another army to the tabletop with an extra level of motivation. However, I do feel like I want to continue the alternating between Fantasy and 40k. So, in the strange little world that is my mind I am tossing up the idea of doing two armies at once alternating units; which potentially has the chance of keeping me from getting over a particular army as I can switch focus. However, it runs the risk of getting completely derailed as I will lose that singular focus on one army that I feel has served me so well thus far. I could potentially do the Fantasy army and then we move the campaign to later in the year (as we are still finishing off our X-Wing campaign, but that is getting towards the finish line).

If it helps I have narrowed down the next armies to either be, Necron, Dwarfs (artillery heavy) or do them both at the same time.

Thanks very much for reading and please don't be shy about stopping in and leaving a comment or too. Love to hear from other hobbyists.

As I am a proud player of the Bearded Legions (Dwarves) I say start with those. But, I do know that alternating between two different armies is a very good way to get stuff done. So why not do both armies?

Necrons should be easy to paint unless you choose a difficult scheme. Artillery heavy dwarfs also doesn´t sound that model intensive, so I think you can do both at once!

Hi all, I reallly appreciate the thoughts. The consensus is I give both armies a go. So I will do just that. I plan on a fairly "traditional" Necron scheme, but will definitely try painting I think either the head and chest a colour or maybe the arms and legs? That would be very different. May make them a little C3PO from episode 7. But could work.

I have begun the repairs to some of the dwarfs (being second hand my collection needs some tlc) Not on the paint side fortunately but the assembled models need some work.

Will hopefully manage to post the lists up this weekend so everyone knows where I am going with them.

Hi all,

No painting to report. Although I am slowly working my way through repairs and wholesale hacking of the 30 Thunderers I need for the Dward Engineer guild. There is one problem with taking second hand models. The condition can vary so much. But should have them ready for some paint in the near future. Figure I would work on the 3 units of Thunderers at once and get them done before moving onto the Necron.

But this post is to show off a few pretty pictures from the game I managed today. 1110 points a side (yeah I know it is a strange number, but it was effectively the entire Space Wolf collection my mate has to date. So we threw done at the NSW Northern Knights (my regular games club) for a game. There is no real chronology to these photos. I sort of snapped them throughout the game when opportunities arose (or I remembered to).


This was my left flank at the start of the game (we were doing the diagonal deployments) or at least at the end of my opponents first turn. I was initially concerned that with 2 Dreadnoughts (and Venerable to boot) would be too hard for the Space Wolves to deal with (as they lacked any serious anti armour) but I was sorely wrong........


Softly, softly trying to sneak over to an objective (pretty standard mission 3 points for each objective, plus slay the warlord, first blood and linebreaker).


Some nice terrain is on offer at the club, makes for very nice games. As you can see the Rhino is making good use of the smoke. It actually managed to save a glancing and penetrating hit whilst concealed by smoke.

[imghttps://mycrazyarmyplan.files.wordpress.com/2017/09/img_1841_zps7gxz4t4o.jpg[/img]
You may wonder why this Iron Hands squad is all grouped up nice and close? Well you see after a serious tactical blunder from me (and an incredible Vindicator shot from my opponent) my Warlord (being a Techmarine with Conversion Beamer and Servitors) simply disappeared from the board and it also clipped this squads Rhino making it explode and killing two Tactical marines to boot. SO, in one shot my opponent who is supposed to be a novice at this game claimed first blood and slay the warlord. It was going to be an uphill battle for the poor Iron Hands.


If I was handing out man of the match awards the Thunderfire cannon would get third place. He kept up a steady salvo for the entire game, but after an amazing first three turns he just lost all sense of direction.


Making masterful use of the mobile cover of the Rhino the Grey Hunters avoided the attention of the Assault Cannon toting Venerable and another Techmarine. Their shooting took a heavy toll on the poor Tacticals. So glad I didn't Combat squad them.


A turn later the Tactical squad fell back to hold onto an objective in my deployment zone and the Venerable and Techmarine tried to blow the damn Rhino out of the way, but simply reduced it to a convenient wreck that the SPace Wolves could continue to hide behind.


Mental note from this game: Vindicators are BAD! Not only losing my Techmarine and his conversion beamer )and servitor bodyguard) and a Rhino, it destoryed my Venerable with Twin Lascannon and Missile Launcher (although I completely forgot Venerable's can have a reroll on the damage chart........stupid me.


This was the second of my tacticals, they did combat squad and one half held up a Grey Hunter pack for 3 turns before the Wolf Guard Terminators arrived with predictable results. This half had a few shots at various targets with there own missile launcher to little effect but managed a crazy overwatch result to kill 4 Grey Hunters with a Wolf Lord, I was pretty happy with that before the Wolf Lord lay about them also with predictable results. Although I take it as a moral victory that the Terminators charged in to finish the last Tactical off here too.


Second mental note: Wolf Guard are annoying as heck. Plus I don't like that charging a vehicle front on and they get to attack the rear armour. We had a bit of a discussion as to what effect the first turn of combat is resolved against the armour facing you charged would have. Going to try it in our next game. Not that it would have saved this poor Rhino from a Thunder Hammer and Powerfist. Although I claim it as a victory as in the ensuing explosion one fo the Terminators should have been wearing a helmet as he died along with the tank....jokes on them. At least the Rhino and hull point markers looked good on the battlefield.

So after a tense game where I thought I had handed it to him on a silver platter in turn one, I stuck with it and probably due to greater experience and a little luck managed to walk away with a very bruised win 9 points to 8 (all my points coming from objectives as I didn't get his Warlord or line breaker.

I learned a lot as it has been a while since I have had the 7th edition generals hat on. Its a little hard going from different games and different editions and keeping all the rules straight. But we had a good time, the game flowed really nicely and it was a very nice tight contest. Just need to stop the crazy tactical mistakes of the Iron Hands may just sack me as a Commander (or worse).

Thanks for reading and hopefully next time I will have some painted Dwarfs to show.

By thin skin of my teeth I snuck a win. Got very lucky with the game ending as soon as possible (at the end of turn 5) as another turn and his vindicator and remaining Wolf Guard Terminators and lord would have rolled the little I had left. So after some very poor movement and tactics from me early on I got some very lucky dice roles to put me in the lead. Next time I think my mate will have more grasp of the game to make me pay for my mistakes.

Hi all, another post with no updates, but I swear they are coming. But I have news that wish to share with my hobby of community. I have mentioned in the past (I think) that previously my wife was diagnosed with an auto immune disease that in her case became quite serious and with no joke or humour intended we were effectively planning our wedding and her funeral at the same time.

Now the forces that be (and some very dedicated doctors) she is alive and kicking. As healthy as can be expected and I thank every day how lucky we were and I am to have her in my life (just look at the hobby lunacy she allows). But her condition requires extensive and risky surgery that undoubtedly saved her life but left some questions over whether she would be able to bear children.

We have been trying for the best part of two years with all manner of fertility treatments (although we hadn't reached the IVF stage yet). At the beginning of the year we decided to put a hold on all of that and focus on improving our financial position. This also led to us looking for a new, larger house. So we have secured ourselves a loan and have been feverishly searching for a new abode to house all of my models. And dogs, and birds, and fish, and a crotchety old cat. Oh and the wife can come too. Sydney property is a bit of a pain. But we are intent or escaping into the mountains for some peace and serenity.

So with this feverish search going on, you could excuse me for being somewhat shocked when my darling wife dropped the bombshell on me about 10 weeks ago that she was pregnant. Out of the blue, free from all drugs and potions. To say I was speechless was an understatement.

Now here we are having just had the 12 week scan seeing all the arms and legs where they are supposed to be. Even the hemispheres of a tiny developing brain of our child slowly developing. It is a truly awe inspiring moment. So with the thumbs up from doctors that everything going well and my wife being in some of the best health in many years (minus perhaps the morning sickness, scratch that all day sickness) it is looking very bright on the horizon.

Does put a bit more interest on finding a more suitable home, but the dogs are fiercely protective of her and I am as happy as an ork wielding a choppa.

So fingers crossed all going well we will have another member to our family that I can slowly corrupt to the dark side of the plastic crack.

Thanks for reading.

Not sure if I am going to manage any actual painting progress this month, but I now have all of the Thunderers for the Drwarf army up on the painting table ready to go. Had to crack out the greenstuff as 8 of them have been re-purposed from great weapon warriors to Thunderers and the arms didn't quite match up. But that is all done as of now so maybe I can get to the brushes.

But, I have another distraction now that you can all help with.

Continuing on with the Primarch painting for my brother, the next two have arrived in my hot little hands. Which should I do first? Leman Russ of the Space Wolves or the often forgotten architect of it all (or was he....) Lorgar of the Word Bearers. Please let me know who you would like to see first.
