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 ...

Four Year Anniversary

Another year has passed and it is now four years ago since the Aleatorblog opened its  gates with its first post. We’re basically still doing what we used to do back then yet we don’t get to see each other that often anymore. But most of us are still working like crazy behind our hobby desks to get these little plastic men ready for tabletop warfare. So we figured it could be fun to take a closer look at our starting point and the climax of our own brush history. What were the Aleatores’ first miniatures, what are their ...

Third time is a charm

The third terrain piece for my custom-made Deathwatch Overkill board was finished recently. In fact I even completed the building of the fourth aswell but I think I’ll wait with the paint job until I have finished building the rest of the still missing terrain pieces. ...

Playtesting the Heralds of Ruin

We continued with our long-lasting tradition and had a little Kill Team tournament recently. To spice things up we gave the Heralds of Ruin rules a shot. Now after the three matches I had, all I can say is that the rules are very cool and pretty thought-out. I especially have to point out the huge variety of available team lists and the even bigger amount of possible builds with these lists. It’s safe to say that we’re about the switch on a permanent basis. We just found two little flaws which we would like to change in our games. The break tests are a bit to harsh. They used to decide the matches’ results way ...

Enslavement of a race

Today I would like to introduce my new Kill Team: The Zoats. Not much is known these days about this xenos race. I focused on the part of their lore regarding their supposed enslavement by the Tyranids. The question now is, how the Tyranids would be able to do so. Thus I came up with a whole new-made up unit, the Cephalotrophs. The Cephalotrophs are a small, floating breed of Tyranids who have quite a fragile body which mainly is a gland plus a little tail. While on the hunt their chitin scale is used to protect them but as soon as they find a possible host they try to hug them from behind. Flesh hooks are fired ...

Heralds of Fenris

The Heralds of Fenris, or the Wolves of Ruin. Anyway, this post is about my Space Wolves Kill team for our first Heralds of Ruin test match. We have a long tradition of playing Kill Team tournaments in our gaming club and this time we would like to test these new rules. All I can say so far is that they look very promising. The individual team lists alone are nothing but great! The Vlka Fenryka team which I had in mind consists of seven furious Blood Claws which need to be guided by three older Wolves of the Fang. It’s very cool that you are able to have much more variety in your team than ...
