Eldar Tempests

An Eldar Xenos superheavy class grav tank sighted on the Imperial Prison Colony world of Neu Diemenslandt. While no engagements have taken place with the Eldar to date, the presence of superheavy vehicles indicates that there is a high probability of a significant battle soon.

Imperial Shadowswords of the 9th Necromundan Superheavy (Black) company traverse the ash wastes of Neu Diemensland. These tanks show several signs that they have been deployed as a part of the Necromundan regiment for some time, including gang markings painted on the armoured panels, engine kill markings predominantly displayed adjacent to the main gun, and various other honour markings on the tank's flanks. The tank on the far right has reinforced side armour in place of sponson secondary weapons, with the crew painting a stylised red Death Blades kill banner on the armoured panels.

The command tank, with yellow command symbol painted on it's flank, is equipped with sponson heavy bolters and a cupola mounted storm bolter as secondary weapons. While the third tank is equipped with sponson heavy bolters only. Often lascannon secondary weapons are fitted to shadowsword sponsons, but both of these tanks have exchanged the lascannons for improved rangefinding and targeting equipment, to allow them to be more accurate with the volcano cannon main armament.
In most deployments it is rare for shadowswords to be fielded as a single formation, with commanders preferring to distribute individual shadowswords throughout their forces. Formations such as this are normally only deployed against a formidable enemy force, when the situation calls for massed war engine killing armament.

The Revenants Walk

Pict capture of a xenos war engine recently sighted on the Imperial Prison Colony world of Neu Diemenslandt. Until recently there has been no documented xenos activity in the war zone, however the sighting of the war engine indicates that a significant force is likely to be present in system. When or how they arrived remains unknown, as does their force disposition and objectives.

This engine is one of the smaller titan class engines utilised by the Eldar, and is often associated with heavily armed, rapidly moving strike forces that are able to play havoc with slower moving imperial forces. This particular titan is armed with twin pulse lasers, representing a significant threat to superheavy class vehicles and titans. As no contact has been made by the Eldar it is unknown what their objectives are in this war zone, however it is highly probable that they will be a high level threat to both Imperial and traitor forces.

The Pledge for 2017

What I said I'd do, what I did and what I say I will do.

In 2016 I pledged that I would do the following:

  1. Paint up the 28mm Death Blades models that I currently own. Purchase what bits I need to do this.
  2. Paint up the 6mm Death Guard Models that I own. Including the supporting Titan Legion.
  3. Purchase and paint some heavy vehicles for the 6mm Death Blades.
  4. Paint up some Dark Future models, including purchasing some models on foot.
  5. Finish rolling up and modelling my Nurgle Warbands for Realms of Chaos.
  6. Find a like minded gaming group and play some games.
  7. Keep going with the Old Lead Undead. Hopefully at a faster rate than 1 model per year.

And here is how I went...
