After taken a look at background and fluff of Traitor’s Hate it’s now time to dive into the rules segment. I’ll do a (not so) quick post on the more general dataslates and rules. That is Renegade Knights, vehicle squadrons for Chaos Vindicators and Chaos Predators, Khârn the Betrayer and the Khorne Lord of Skulls. […]Read more "Traitor’s Hate Review: part 2 – Dataslates"
DreadTober is a community event or challenge in which you build and paint a dreadnought type model during October month. Except to all sorts of walkers, from the mighty Knight Titans to the not so mighty Helbrutes. The rules have been relaxed a bit this year – any dreadnought type model is fine so bring […]Read more "WIP: Chaos Contemptor, part 2"
Ok, lets get this party started. DreadTober 2016 is officially on (even though it’s still September) and the first of the weekly challenges is to plan and build you entry.

I got my hands on Traitor’s Hate one week ago and as you can imagine I’ve spent quite a lot of time reading it. The story is great. I found it to be really thrilling and evocative.

The game last Friday night was a blast. Sure we both made horrible mistakes and probably forgot tons of rules, for both better and worse. But that’s ok; we didn’t break the most important rule, you see. Now be warned – this was a game of fluffy list and unbroken combinations, the armies deployed mediocre […]Read more "Bring me the Heart of the Iron Oracle – battle report (comic book style)"

The holographic map of Moot Harkan shimmered with a bluish tint, casting a pale light on the two Heretic Astartes standing before it. The Shrine World was all but lost to the Tyranids. Elements from the Astra Militarum still held out close to the Citadel City but their number were dwindling. Chaos Lord Davos Vane, the […]Read more "Bring me the Heart of the Iron Oracle – background and list"
Yeah, a hobby post. First of all, thanks for all the great feedback on the Slaughtersmith conversion. It was unexpected but most welcome. I still haven’t started painting it yet. But once I get cracking I’ll throw up some pictures. Until then check out my Chaos Cataphractii Terminators. I converted some Combi-Plasma from the Combi-Bolters […]Read more "WIP: Chaos Cataphractii Terminators, part 1"
