Harbo's Headshots

Like the 9th Necromundan, the 4th Dunbarian Ratling Regiment was bound for the escalating war in the Isa sub-cluster before being intersected en-route by an Inquisitorial delegation. The Inquisitor requisitioned a platoon of ratlings for his own use before ordering the rest of the regiment onward.

The Oldhammer Community

I have just discovered the growing community of Oldhammer folk.
People like myself, who can remember different times, where back story was important, and miniatures were less detailed, but more creative.

I stumbled upon the oldhammers because I was in the process of converting my Rogue Trader imperial guardsmen back to their original paint scheme.

Rather than start a new blog for a handful of models, (that would get updated about as frequently as this one!) I have decided to roll it into one somewhat related blog. 

My chaos army has old models. My imperial guard army has old models, and are currently being used as muscle by the inquisitor who is after my traitors, so it sort of makes sense. In a loose kind of way. If I ever update my old marines they will make an appearance too.

So in an attempt to keep things ticking along at the lightning pace of 2 updates a year, here is something I have been working on.

Di'Anno was a ruthless gang leader prior to his induction into the guard, and his natural leadership abilities and level head made him an obvious choice for a company commander. His reputation for ending blood feuds quickly ensured that no one challenged his authority as he took command of F Company. Unusually, Di'Anno wears the standard uniform for a captain, complete with officers hat. This is no doubt due to the recent attachment of fresh commissariat officers to the regiment after the deaths of the previous appointments.

So I will need to add to these guys obviously, but have plenty planned. Time on the other hand...

a list by any other name is still as sweet

I have been mucking around with Death Guard 6th edition lists a little bit lately, and just thought I would post one here.

This is a fairly no-nonsense list designed to take and hold the centre of the board, hopefully claiming nearby objectives as they come available.

Notes from a tourney

I went to a local tourney last weekend, and wandered around to look at the different armies on display, and was pleased with what I saw.
One obvious thing that I noticed was that no two armies were the same. The combination of 6th edition rules leveling the playing field, and the inclusion of allies resulted in some uncharacterful, yet unique armies.
