463rd Orta, Byzant Janizars – Part 4

Throughout the madness of the Unification Wars, the techno-barbarian states on Terra used all manner of vehicles to wage war in ever more horrific ways. Most of these were deemed too unstable or dangerous to enter service in the Imperium and so things like the Ursh nightmare-crawlers, the panther heavy tank of the Yndonesic BlocContinue reading “463rd Orta, Byzant Janizars – Part 4”

Dicing with Death – Sethurisia

Emperor’s Children 3rd Company ‘Cavalcade of Pain‘ vs Raven Guard 8th Talon Antigonus unleashed his 3rd Company on the sub-sector, ordering them to cause havoc and misery wherever they went. In truth he had little control over the Cavalcade of Pain at the best of time, and it was better to factor their chaos andContinue reading “Dicing with Death – Sethurisia”

463rd Orta, Byzant Janizars – Part 3

With the first week of my project to finish the Byzant Janizars over, I have re-based a number of units and updated the paint scheme on my lascannon support squad. If you want to catch up on what I have written previously about my 30k cults & militia army based on the Byzant Janizars, seeContinue reading “463rd Orta, Byzant Janizars – Part 3”

Project February: Finishing the Byzant Janizars

I recently decided that 2021 would be the year of finishing projects and working through the unbuilt and unpainted resin and plastic on my hobby desk. First up is the Byzant Janizars, an Old One Hundred force that is mentioned in the early black library Horus Heresy books. There is very little fluff to goContinue reading “Project February: Finishing the Byzant Janizars”

Generals Corner – Raven Guard Tactics. Part 1- Decapitation Strike Force

I have been playing the Raven Guard since I started playing 30k which was shortly after the release of Betrayal at Calth. The legion specific rules grabbed me straight away as did their reliance on infantry, drop pods, fliers, infiltrators and jump infantry. I have collected about 9000 points of the mighty XIXth legion andContinue reading “Generals Corner – Raven Guard Tactics. Part 1- Decapitation Strike Force”

Dok’s Shop – Vengeance for Isstvan V

Hi everyone, we thought it was time to show off our latest joint project – loyalist daemons. Now we know this is a controversial topic but stick with us, we think we have a pretty good justification… Back in early February Tom and I attended part 3 of the Sundering of Fortis II event putContinue reading “Dok’s Shop – Vengeance for Isstvan V”

Muster the Militia!

So all three of us have signed up to a horus heresy militia event later this year. There’s only one slight problem with this plan…. I don’t currently have a single militia model! But now marks the start of a new project! This section of the blog will chart my progress from never playing aContinue reading “Muster the Militia!”

Dok’s Shop – Militia Land Speeders

Developed by Arkan Land primarily for the Legiones Astartes, land speeders were also used by the fledgling Imperial Army. Expensive and difficult to maintain, they were reserved for the more prestigious outfits who had the contacts to field them in large numbers. One such force was the Byzant Janizars. When the Byzant Dominate was absorbedContinue reading “Dok’s Shop – Militia Land Speeders”

Dicing with Death – the Swamps of Voggo

We played a couple of games using some of our new jungle terrain. It blocks line of sight really well and we are working on a lot more pieces to create a really dense board. The jungle pieces mix nicely with the rest of our terrain which is really handy for mixing and matching andContinue reading “Dicing with Death – the Swamps of Voggo”
