An impromptu hobby session tonight led me to painting up a banner for my rogue trader. In a previous post (https://lasgunsandroses.wordpress.com/2021/01/29/kitbash-corner-colour-sergeant-kell/) I had put together a banner bearer to represent Colour Sergeant Kell when I intended to run the rogue trader as a ‘counts as’ Creed. Plans change and Kell fell by the wayside as … Continue reading Raise the Banner
Full of New Year vigour, I’m going to attempt to get more gaming done this year, which is a pretty low bar given how much was done last year, but never mind that. I prefer my games to have some form of a narrative element, and like most wargamers I dream of the ‘Campaign’, that … Continue reading Starting a Narrative Campaign
Welcome one and all to that most productive of days! The day when promises are made as to the wondrous achievements expected over the next year. Today I’ve been reviewing the progress made over the last year in getting the troops ready for battle, as well as catching up on other’s efforts. This is my … Continue reading Hobby New Year!
Finishing up the Guard paint queue are these five. In the front row are Rein and Raus from Blackstone Fortress, with Espern Locarno the navigator from the same on the rear left. I’ll probably use the navigator as an astropath, rather than the special character. Another commissar has been assigned to ensure that the troops … Continue reading More auxilia join the army
Another squad done; this time some servitors to help the Tech-priest enginseer out. These ones were built from a couple of genestealer cult models and two chaos cultists. Armed with a plasma cannon and a multi-melta, the two gun servitors are accompanied by a simple servo arm equipped servitor and a combat servitor. I went … Continue reading Nearly New Year, Same Army – Servitors
Last post before Christmas! I’ve been a bit more motivated for the last week or so, and have finally slapped some paint on the Escher gang. Back in the 3rd edition Codex Armageddon, you could take Hive Gang Militia for a planetary defence force based army. These women were conscripted and placed with the 9th … Continue reading Diana’s Riggers
Here is my Rogue Trader Crusade list, ready to set forth into the unknown and remind the xenos species that their stuff actually belongs to the Imperium (for a modest finders fee of course…). Here are the models I have ready (mostly) for a 50 power level initial crusade force. Leading the expedition is an … Continue reading For the Emperor? A Rogue Trader Crusade Order of Battle
Back at the end of 2020 I wrote a post about my plans for getting my Imperial Guard painted up and playing some games of 40k and Kill Team in a narrative campaign https://lasgunsandroses.wordpress.com/2020/12/28/march-to-victory/. For a myriad of reasons this didn’t go according to plan (as usual…), however I’ve managed to get quite a few … Continue reading What’s the point of painting miniatures?
I’ve managed another couple of units over the last two days. First we have a company commander. He is a Major with overall command of A company. His command squad has been built and is awaiting priming. Next we have another company commander (on the left) and his command squad. This Captain has command of … Continue reading Officers’ Mess – 2 HQ and an Elite
I haven't posted for a couple of months. To be honest, the distraction bugbear hit me well and good, and I've been indulging in a couple of other projects unrelated to the theme of this site, as well as being dragged back onto another social media platform that has done nothing but become a time … Continue reading One year on…
