Council of 13 Runner Up






Treated myself to some new bits this month. 2 Warhounds, 3 boxes of Questoris and 2 boxes of Cerastus.

Added to the rest of my gubbins, that’s me now able to do any of the Maniples.

I may add a third Reaver at some point, which now I think about it I need to do a Corsair Maniple....

Fed up for Scalpers? Why not join us?

Cobbled together some story-fluff for a Knight house hold, ready for DOM next month, and how they fit in with the current army I've already got while also able to pit them against each other. Basically its a similar situation to the Space Wolves and Dark Angels where its assumed one of them turned traitor and the other goes to sort them out, but realise they had hung tough and remained loyal. So that civil war is where the two houses clash, but when together, its when they recover their loses by entering into a House-alliance with each other( both are backwater neigbours, cut off from help during the traitor's advance to terra and retreat back into the eye of terror ) and then returning the favour to the traitors, who engineered their civil war. Skulls WILL be cracked! I don't want to overthink it, but it helps when planning and painting units.

Went to pick up the Weapon cards this afternoon but the delivery was late so another day for that.

Knocking together some smaller, additional banner terminals just to hold the tokens and structure points. I just feel that if one has two or three banners of the same kind that it takes up unnecessary table space, and you only need one terminal with the knight info such as shields, stats and weapons. I don't need them just yet, but I plan to get more Qs and Cs soon...

Bought my first AT purchase the other day during a trip (pilgrimage) to Warhammer World - a set of the plastic Knights. Have to say they are lovely little sculpts, tremendous detail.

Planning to dual purpose them - use for Epic Armageddon alongside great-crusade era World Eaters, and will hopefully pick up the AT rules at some point soon.

Now to spend weeks deciding on a colour scheme..

Really, the AT kits are the most fun ive had building and painting! Maybe im partial to anything with big fighting warmachines but they are a delight! Even the babyknights are truly impressive!

Picked up the weapon cards for the Warhounds. Now able to present my terminals in a digified fashion!

Really hoping they announce something either today or tomorrow so I can have a pre-order delivered by mid-april( got some holiday ). Otherwise, maybe just a set of Questoris and the "dark city" from Warcradle.

Have another game coming up, could do with some feedback on my proposed list.

2000 Points - Legio Astorum

Warlord Titan
- 2x Belicosa Cannons
- Twin Apoc Launchers

Reaver Titan
- Apoc Launcher
- Laser Blaster
- Volcano Cannon

Reaver Titan
- Turbo Laser
- Melta Cannon
- Chainfist

Warhound Squadron
- 2x Turbo Lasers
- 2x Vulcan Bolters

4x Knights
- 4x Thermal Cannons
- 4x Melee Weapons

4x Knights
- 4x Thermal Cannons
- 4x Melee Weapons


Haven't yet decided on a Maniple for them but I think it's a good variety of units there. A CC Reaver and 8x Knights can put the pressure on, even more so with the boosted movement from Astorum, with the Reaver moving up to 22" a turn!




Additionally, hoping to get some feedback on a rule I'm still not sure about; Can Knights go round corners when charging? I can see both sides to the argument, but I'm on the side of they have to move in a straight line. Reason I'm asking is that I recently saw a video report, and the guy was issuing charge orders to his Knights, they only moved around 3" from point A-B, but he said "yeah they move out 6" then back to get the full number of attacks", which seemed a bit of a dickish exploit.

Thanks,

A chainfist/Melta Reaver and eight knights - assuming they are armed with reaper chainswords, will at least have you covered on the melee front this time. You did really well last time considering the dirdy'twick that chap pulled on you!

Knights are considered agile so unless it specifically states otherwise in the rule book, I'd have them charge the full length, without penalty when manouvering round corners.

As per the current RAW, Charging only limits you to Front arc and disables turning, ie. diagonal moving is okay. Knights only have a Front and aren't thus ever required to turn, which gives them wonky maxed out charges all day long. This pretty clearly isn't the intention and Andy Hoare hinted on Twitch that when Doom of Molech comes out this month, they have cleared some rules regarding Knights' orders. Charging changing to straight lines for Knights seems to be coming, so it can be helpful to start thinking that way.

Pretty awesome stuff Zedmeister, love the little bunker on the base.

I've come across some parts to convert the Cerastus Lancers into Acherons. Has anyone had any experience with using them in a game? They look like a decent trade off for the Lancer, while you lose a point of strength in CC the Rending can make up for it.

Not only that, but the Acherons have flame cannons which seem better than the shock blast from the Lancer's shield. Their chainfist would also stack with the Castigator warblade for more dice...

If only the Castigator would be useful for something, the gun is literally worse than Avenger and that is already pushing it to the realm of (awesome) stylistic choices

I haven't yet fielded my Acherons that much, though I feel they have potential. Highly mobile terror troops that can protect your own lines from Lancers and Warhounds. Of course if Doom of Molech brings knightly hordes to the table as an option, it's always handy to have more flamers when you cannot miss. Burninating time, baby!

It would seem the Castigator is there to provide an option for long-range attacks, but the Questoris will always do a better job in that area just as the Cerastus has them beat at short range assaults.

And as the Cerastus Banner marches across the field of battle, he'll remind his battle-buddies that he is 5 dollars cheaper than the Acheron!

Another update on my Astorum titans. Finally managed to get the Sunfury sprue and decided to get a Melta Reaver as well while I was there. They're all in various states of completion, some just need the trim painted, others need most of the armour attached but what the hell, let's show it all off!

I'm quite proud of the bases, loving the smaller scale and the space it gives you to work with. So far we have a road with broken lights and some sort of checkpoint building, a lonely Leman Russ working its way through the mud, and a bit of a generic wasteland which I'll add some Marines onto, as well as one of the Reavers towering over some unfortunate Emperors Children.

I also have 2 Warhounds to be completed as well as 9 Knights on the table. Future plans are to get another Reaver, perhaps another pair of Warhounds and a couple of sets of Cerastus Knights. Found a means to get a very decent Acheron upgrade kit so will be looking into that as well.

Thanks for looking! Any comments appreciated

Very nice bases, Valkyrie. They convey the scale terrificly well.

At my end there's no real progress with miniatures, but I did get hyped on an upcoming game and ended up both getting more trees and making some tea light explosions that just refuse to play along in photographs. Might give them a light spray of grey and brown at some point to emulate thicker smoke.

Gaming happens, Favilla vs. a combined assault of Astorum and Mortis in the Second Battle of Nyrcon City scenario. Utterly devastating seven hour slog (2000 p. vs. 3000) full of banter and explosions, a proper battle report coming in a few days.

I mostly got them for titanicus originally, wanted to spruce up my bases... Then it kind of spiralled and I bought more hahah.

Now me and my local gaming group are working on a conversion set of rules for HH to port it to a smaller scale for larger battles we could hope to afford in 28mm, that and playing epic with them of course, got to say a standard 6 by 4 board using heresy epic is awesome to say the least.
