Heresy @ HATE: Doomsday campaign – Part 4

The Horus Heresy 30k narrative escalation campaign continues (search for ‘Heresy @ HATE: Doomsday campaign’ on Facebook) – I didn’t have any confidence in managing to paint, assemble or even buy more Mechanicum due to the launch and distraction of 8th Edition 40k and so instead opted to do a multi-player game: 1k points per player – 2 on 2. Logistically getting 4 geeks to agreed to be able to play the same day and time was challenging, but we just about managed it in time for this phase of the campaign 🙂 Continue reading

Dark Mechanicum Part 10 – Archmagos

Archmagos

I picked up the Start Collecting: Skitarii set a while ago to kit-bash some more 30k Dark Mechanicum Thralls, but also handily it includes the Tech-Priest Dominus model which I also intend to use as a Magos Prime/Archmagos/Magos Dominus for 30k. My thinking is that I have tended to find experimenting with a single HQ is a little risky with the both Draykavac/Taghmata and Legio Cybernetic Mechanicm builds and also while I love the Forgeworld Archmagos Draykavac model, it is fragile and expensive due to being resin, so I really wanted something in plastic that would be less at risk of breaking in transit for weekday game club nights.

I managed to get my third 1k point campaign game in a few weeks ago, which was notable on two fronts: it was a Mechanicum on Mechanicum game and also this was this first time I have played 30k using the Zone Mortalis rules.

Dark Mechanicum Part 9 – London Heresy 2017

The London Heresy consisted of a two day / 5 game narrative Horus Heresy event run alongside the London Warhammer 40k Grand Tournament.

My final list in the end consisted of my Dark Mechanicum/House Atrax themed Questoris Knight’s list. I won’t go through the minutiae of the list, but to give a broad brushstrokes idea: Continue reading
