The Augurium

Now that my latest Space Marine project was finished (for now), I thought of a new project to get myself busy again on some power armour. Why not try a new Kill Team? So I went for the Grey Knights this time as I have never painted them before. Actually I had a soft spot for the Knights from Titan ever since yet they always had a major flaw to me. Somehow their agenda to be the first among equals (Space Marines) made them less attractive to me. But now that they are overshadowed by their huge primaris brethren they (at least to me) seemed to be cured. My first try was Brother Atravon, a ...

Jensus Natorian

Here he comes – my last Deathwatch Space Marine for our planed Deathwatch: Overkill campaign. As you might remember we played some missions of the board game earlier this year and decided to play the whole campaign as the game was lots of fun. Every player involved (excluding Rekrom who takes care of the board and most of the cultists) has to bring four painted Space Marines (including Kill Team Excis for extra fun). With Jensus Natorian the Codicier Librarian finished I am eagerly awaiting the upcoming matches. I really hope to see a good performance of the Blood Raven Psyker. ...

Temple of Elemental Evil

Today’s post has nothing to do with any AD&D stuff yet I couldn’t resist chosing this catchy title. What I had in mind was that with all the enthusiasm regarding the new 8th edition of Warhammer 40.000 we could expand our gaming habits and aim for more customised scenarios. We don’t get to play very often anyway so why not invest more into the matches that we will have? With that thought in mind I browsed through some of my ideas I had since years but never managed to play out. Our gaming club is able to gather five players who all got a traitor Legion of the 41st millennium at hand. This is a great starting point ...

Welcome 8th

We’re a bit late on joining in for the new edition of Warhammer 40.000. During the last months or even years the interest in Warhammer 40.000 faded away within our small gaming community and I think the new edition was the fresh and revitalising wind that we all needed to start again. So we gathered for a small 500 points tournament and gave the new edition a try. This certainly was a good day for Father Nurgle and for us aswell. The new edition was really well received here. I am foretelling a lot more action regarding Warhammer 40.000 on the blog again. Cheers to all my mates attending the event. I am really pleased that there ...

Koenen Sigfric

This is my third Marine for our upcoming Deathwatch: Overkill campaign. Since we would like to start with Kill Team Ecxis first all of us need to paint the five additional Space Marines aswell. I went for the Howling Griffon as I always had a soft spot for that chapter. I think this medieval touch the chapter has is pretty nice which is why I went for another head. ...

Ennox Sorrlock

As you might have noticed we had a really great time playing Deathwatch: Overkill lately. Actually we agreed on playing the whole campaign as soon as possible. Therefore all four Aleator-Players sorted four Deathwatch Marines out who we were going to play during the campaign (including Kill Team Excis of course). Of course I got this fella here and today’s Iron Hand Ennox Sorrlock. Be prepared for the other two members of the Deathwatch soon. Regarding the bases I tried to be as close to Rekrom’s marvelous tiles as possible. ...

Deathwatch: Overkill – Killstorm

Finally! After my clubmate Rekrom finished the last remaining tile for the first couple of missions we were able to sit down and give this game a try. No really, we waited with the first game until we had everything fixed for maximum tabletop goodness. I really have to praise Rekrom’s dedication towards this project. It was a blast playing on these marvelous tiles. Thanks mate, on the board they look even better than on the pictures. Also I would like to thank Kjeld for his help on the project. He painted some of the required cultists and came up with these cool vents you can see on the board. They have no relevance ...
