It’s been a long while friends. Things slowed down due to health and work. I’m back at it though having joined a slow growth league at the FLGS. My plan is too fully complete my first ever painted army, Admech. BA, Tau, and the sinister Kraken Kurt will wait for now.

The league started with a 500 point game. I took an infantry heavy list with no real heavy weapons. I hoped for power armor adversaries and dreaded facing armor. Of course I got guard as an opponent. I wasn’t able to destroy his tanks, I didn’t even target them. I did wipe out his infantry, but he did the same to me. In the end he won the game, he was not able to defeat my Dominus though. In fact I have switched to Lucius and his main guns were auto cannons. I ignored the armor penetration and made my saves.

The other opponents look fairly Imperium heavy, with a couple space wolves, 2-3 IG, a GSC, and some Nurgle.

Here was my list. I’ll probably drop TA rangers and add another unit of vanguard. I’ll then drop the grav katapbrons and pick up an onager.

Photos to follow of my new Manipulus and a shot of the battle today.

Edit: Yes that's two Leman Russes and 30+ infantry at 500 points. Oh well. I could have and should have brought an Onager. Next time! I do like Lucius now, I may occasionally run Stygies, especially if I get some Dragoons painted and ready. I just really like the deep strike option and the ignore -1 AP is a nice bonus. The Solar Flare is an ace item and allows for some sweet repositioning of your Tech Priest Dominus.

Here's a WIP of my Tech Priest Manipulus. I've finished the screen, I just haven't "installed" it yet. I'm kind of hesitant to do it, actually, I like the look of the model as it is.

I must say it's nice to be back to painting and hobbying. More to come as the forge world starts to ramp up production.

The Manipulus looks great!

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

 

Reasons to use the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think the Librarian Dreadnought needs Furious Charge AND It Will Not Die to beat down a Chaos-worshiping punk and his Defiler, while a Stormraven needs a Vanquisher cannon to beat down this punk's Heldrake.

I painted these guys for a slow growth league. We just fought at 750 points. I lost a close match to a GSC army. The first game I had no real anti-tank against astra militarum. The second game I had a hard time dealing with his light vehicles (he had a bunch)  and infantry. Just not enough shots going out. I've got two weeks to come up with something at the 1000 point level. I'm 0-2 but have accumulated points based on having an entirely painted army.

 

I've got another 5 rangers, a plasma vanguard, TUA ranger, and Arc rifle ranger in the painting queue. I've got another leader with taser goad and phosphor pistol. I've also got 6 Kataphron destroyers primed and ready for paint. I'm finishing a second engineseer for a low points HQ option. I may go with the Vigilus detachment and paint up some servitors and try and run some Kataphrons (Kataphri?).

 

I think a really interesting option at 1000 points may be to put in a dragoon. I own one model, new in box. He's a pretty sweet distraction too.

 

On a side note, those D6 hand flamers are super legit at taking out low toughness models. He erased my vanguard easily with just 5 hybrid acolytes.

My first vanguard leader with melee capability: an arc pistol and power sword. Didn't even get to swing with him. <sigh>

I've slowly been adding to the army. I've got a new engineseer who's been put in charge of maintaining the Onagers, selecting the appropriate unguents, and placating the oft difficult machine spirits.
