Flaming Hell!

A squadron of assault tanks from the 9th Necromundan Red Company preparing to advance. The squadron is composed of a Banewolf on the left, with chemical cannon, and two Hellhounds. The command tank is in the centre, as denoted by the yellow command symbol on it's flank.

As zone mortalis specialists, the Necromundans often utilise assault tanks such as these, whose armament makes a mockery of cover that the enemy may be sheltering in.

More Transports for Green Platoon

Imperial Centaur Light Assault Carriers being utilised as transports for the 9th Necromundan F Company Green Platoon. These centaurs have been fitted with enclosed crew compartments, to provide additional protection to the transported troops from hostile environments and enemies. An added benefit is that it also allows the Necromundans to perform their nefarious deeds shielded from prying eyes while on non combat operations.

Crassus Heavy Transports

Crassus Heavy Transports of the 9th Necromundan F (yellow) Company. Transports such as the Crassus are used by the regiment when a combination of heavy armour and speed is required to get the infantry into engagements. 
They are seen as a mixed blessing by the Necromundans, who appreciate their thick armoured protection, but know that when the Crassus are deployed it is to engage a powerful enemy force.

Epic Leman Russ Tanks

The Leman Russ Battletank is a common sight amongst the innumerable regiments of the Imperial Guard.
The 9th Necromundan are no exception, with the Leman Russ being a valuable addition to the Regiment at times when an armoured strike is required. The former gangers of the industrial world that are chosen to crew these vehicles relish the opportunity to unleash overwhelming firepower on the foe before attacking at full pace, engaging them at close quarters with secondary weapons.

The officers of the regiment have learned to use the battle tanks well, ruthlessly combining artillery, air and armoured strikes, putting into practice the edicts of combined warfare as outlined in the Tactica Imperium.

Shown here is the command squadron of red company, as indicated by the red and yellow striping on the tanks side armour. The company command vehicle is a Vanquisher variant in this case, and can be identified by the yellow command symbol on the turret.

Epic Armageddon Matched Play

Ever wondered what happens when you cross pollinate Epic Armageddon with the Age of Sigmar General's Handbook?
I hadn't either. And then I did.
And this happened:

Aegis Defence Lines and Razorwire

Unmanned Planetary Defence Force defences on the Imperial Prison Colony world of Neu-Diemenslandt.

Defences such as these are often set up at strategic locations on Imperial worlds where a large number of recruits may be rapidly drafted into planetary defence forces should the need arise.

The robust nature of the defences, and the fact that they are relatively easy to repair means that they may stand fit for purpose for decades with a minimum of maintenance.

Epic Objective Markers

One of the things that I've been up to lately is making objective markers for my Epic armies. The Tournament scenario in Epic Armageddon requires three objectives to be set up in each half of the board, an I have been modelling markers that match my armies.

While these look cool and thematic, they do have a tendency to blend in with the rest of the battle, meaning that they can be a little hard for my opponent to keep track of. "Which land raider is the objective again?".

So I decided to make some thematic, blatantly obvious markers that can be used on my city themed table and show in no uncertain terms where the objectives are.

Epic Fortified Turrets

Turrets such as these are often installed by planetary defence forces, and can provide a first line of defence to Imperial settlements and infrastructure. Occasionally they survive long enough to be utilised by other Imperial forces that get mobilised to war zones after the initial contact with the PDF has been made.

More undead samurai!

Undead samurai summoned forth and stalking the lands of the living.
I have added another five undead samurai to the growing ranks of my undead horde, brining it up to a whopping eight finished models. These five were batch painted, and don't seem to have suffered too much for it, so I will probably be doing that again for the rest of the rank and file models in this army.
I have pretty much settled on a palette now too, so hopefully I can knuckle down and make some good progress on these.

The time of Judgement is nigh...

Requisitioned into the forces of Het'fjeld as his personal bodyguard and investigators, these Arbites also assist in maintaining order within the Necromundan regiment.
The guardsmen of the 9th Necromundan treat them with outward hostility, thanks largely to the fact that the former gangers of the 9th grew up in a culture of hatred towards the Arbites, who often clashed violently with the hive gangers.
The Arbites themselves care little for the manner in which the Guardsmen treat them, feeling honoured in the fact that they are chosen by Het'fjeld to execute his orders directly.

Death Guard Whirlwind Hyperios

A Death Guard Whirlwind Hyperios squadron providing air cover to Legion forces. The Hyperios are also capable of engaging enemy light armour to a limited capacity, and are often assigned to Legion Armour units where they can keep pace, assist with engaging enemy armour, and provide air defence. Their inclusion in Legion Infantry formations is also common, where they can carefully be maneuvered into cover to provide stronger air defence to infantry formations on foot, as well as mobile air cover for mechanised infantry formations.

Epic Battle Report - The're coming to surrender!

I had a fun game of Epic the other day, and I remembered to take some photos! It was bound to happen sooner or later!
It was a 2000 point per side game of Epic Armageddon, between an army of my own creation, the Heavy Mechanised Imperial Guard, and the squats of Thurgrimm's Stronghold.

Green Platoon

Pict capture of elements of the 9th Necromundan F company 3rd platoon, including members of the command section, notably the OiC Lt. Burr and platoon medic.
These troops have been configured for rapid deployment with fully enclosed helmets, and carapace body armour.
Grav chutes appear to have been discarded, which is a common practice amongst units deploying behind enemy lines. The guardsmen are armed with lightweight Ryza pattern lasguns, which appear to have been dramatically overcharged as indicated by the glowing transfer coils underneath the weapons. Unsanctioned modifications such as this render the weapons much more effective, but at a reduced range and increased wear on components, in addition to the higher likelihood of critical malfunction.

Death Guard Objectives

I decided to use some of my spare epic models to make up some objective markers for games that use my Death Guard. These were fairly simple to do, and is probably something that I will repeat for all of my other epic armies.

Some Death Guard Reinforcements

Tactical detachments in the XIVth Legion often operate in dense terrain and hostile war zones. These heavy support squads are an example of a well armed addition that can dramatically increase the firepower of an infantry detachment. Often armed with flak missiles, squads such as these can provide some defence against enemy fliers, however should additional flier defence be required then a Whirlwind Hyperios like the one shown can be added to the formation to make it a viable threat against all but the heaviest of fliers.

DIY Epic Hellblades

Pict capture of Hellblade fighters of an unknown design. Note the more heavily armoured tail section on the fighters, possibly housing an increased fuel load for support of longer ranged strike operations.

Odium Aeternum Walks!

The heaviest titan yet sighted in Battlegroup Infidel, the Legio Mortis warlord Titan Odium Aeternum has been fighting alongside the XIVth Legion since the great crusade.
Like other titans in the battlegroup, it shows a high level of superficial damage from prolonged deployments in hostile war zones, yet remains fully combat effective.

Legio Mortis Death's Heads Reavers

The Legio Mortis reaver titans Bellator Deus and Immitis Rex of Battlegroup Infidel.

The Titans of Battlegroup Infidel were used relentlessly by the Traitor Mechanicum forces during the Age of Darkness, and were deployed in support of the forces of the XIVth Legion for the majority of the Heresy.
Note the extensive superficial damage the Titans are displaying, probably as a result of the breakdown in supply lines and support structure that most forces encountered during the Age of Darkness.
While often deployed in warzones for long periods the battlegroup was not completely without support, and enough Mechanicum assets were present to enable their weaponry to be re-fitted and all but the most major repairs undertaken to ensure the war engines remained fit for purpose while on mission.

Epic Armageddon 30k Quartermaster Files

One of the unfortunate requirements of my job is to spend lots of time sitting in airplane seats. Over time I've been able to write some Quartermaster files for some of the 30k Epic Armageddon army lists that are on the Epic Au site (here).

Legio Ignatum Warhound Praedetor.

Praedetor is one of the few Titans currently fighting as part of the 22nd army group. The Titans pledged to the 22nd were committed to the force when Legio Ignatum learned that they were potentially going to face elements of their hated enemies Legio Mortis.
Consequently the Legio Ignatum Titans like Praedetor were armed by their masters with weapons suitable for combating enemy war engines, ensuring that they execute their own internal mandate and are not distracted by lesser foes.

9th Necromundan Command Leviathan

The leviathan "Pride of Ollanius" was allocated to serve alongside the 22nd Army Group on their formation. A venerable relic, "The Pride" is currently assigned to the 9th Necromundan regimental command.
While some members of the 22nd's command structure were opposed to letting the Necromundans have access to such an honoured war machine, the Necromundans themselves are not afraid to commit "The Pride" to battle whenever overwhelming firepower and a statement kill is the best option.

A Battle Report, of sorts...

I managed to get an intro game of Epic Armageddon in on the weekend. It was a small 1,000 point "Mini-geddon" battle, done to introduce a new player to the game.

Spoiler Alert: It was fun!

"Crusade" Dreadnoughts

The Astartes Crusade Pattern Dreadnought are used by the Death Guard in dense terrain where more heavy armour is unable to traverse or be re-supplied. Armed with a range of heavy weapons, these dreadnoughts focus on ranged attacks and firefights over close combat. They are often formed into talon's such as the one shown, and dropped onto the battlefield as a part of the initial orbital assault.
They form a valuable armoured support unit for the Death Guard infantry, providing additional heavy firepower and resilience to the infantry formations.

Here comes Denmark!

Another "Stats when I'm bored" challenge, and look who the big movers are!

Legio Mortis Warhounds

The Legio Mortis Warhounds Ferrum Venator and Typhonicus Morte are scout titans of Battlegroup Infidel, a Death's Head Maniple that often fought alongside the Death Guard Legion in larger engagements.
Due to the hostile nature of the environments that the Death Guard were deployed in, and the decline in regular supply lines during the age of darkness, the titans of Battlegroup Infidel accumulated large amounts of superficial damage while deployed. Note the excessive amounts of corrosion present on the titan's weaponry and lower legs, most likely due to the hostile nature they were deployed in, possibly as a result of the weaponry utilised by the Death Guard themselves.
The corrosion on the Inferno Cannons may be a result of chemical munitions, which were heavily utilised by the Death Guard, and by their allies as supply and needs permitted.

Epic Destroyers

The Death Guard were one of the legions that utilised destroyers as a regular part of their modus operandi. Armed with rad and phosphex weaponry, and utilising jump packs to quickly close with the enemy, the destroyers provided a hard hitting rapid infantry strike force.
The force seen here is being led by a legion chaplain, further boosting their combat ability and providing a valuable benefit to the morale of the already stalwart members of the formation.

Red Platoon Medic

Pict capture of second platoon medic from the 9th Necromundan "Death Blades" F Company. Medics such as these are assigned to the command sections of infantry platoons to improve guardsmen morale, and occasionally reduce battlefield casualties. They are typically found where the fighting is thickest, and this individual has obtained a non standard dueling chain sabre to assist with close quarters engagements and battlefield amputations.
Within the Death Blades medics such as these act as unofficial distributors of combat stimms and other chemical agents, going to great lengths to ensure that supply and distribution within the regiment remains constant. This earns them a certain amount of authority and respect within the regiment, and the position is highly sought after should vacancies arise. Internal disputes with medics are rare, so most vacancies are a result of battlefield attrition or, on occasion, incapacitation due to prolonged substance abuse.

Death Blades Comms Officer

Responsible for communications between F Company Command and other elements of the task force, this comms officer is well trained in the use of the high gain vox unit he carries. Like other communications officers of the 9th Necromundan, and of many other Imperial Guard regiments, the comms officers are seen as a vital link to battlefield re-enforcements, emergency extraction, and resupply. They are also rumored to use their equipment for more nefarious deeds, such as monitoring other communications, allowing certain "off mission" operations to be organised by the company officers, ensuring that unofficial equipment, munitions and supplies can be obtained when needed. Allegations that communications officers within the 9th Necromundan have been organising covert meetings with local gangs for trade and combat drug resupply are, as of yet, unproven.

Epic Grave Warden Terminators

Grave Warden Terminators and Praetor.

My grave warden terminators really caused me some angst. Something went awry when I was priming them. I'm not sure exactly what, perhaps I didn't shake the can enough, held it too close, or it was too humid or something, but once they were dry I saw that they were a bit blobby on the front, with some of the detail obscured under too much paint.
They sat in a drawer for about a week while I wondered what to do. In the end I decided to paint them up, and see how they turned out, rather than strip them and have another go. I'm not sure it was the right choice, but I didn't have an easy way to strip them (I was working away from most of my equipment), and they don't look too bad.

More Epic Land Raiders

I painted up another four Land Raider Proteus' to add to the slowly growing vehicle pool of my epic Death Guard force.
