Necromunda Goliaths advance

Popped to WHW again today for another run through the rules. With 4 game under my belt feeling confident with the rules.

I am in the process of writing up a campaign, it is going to be very narrative based, taking inspiration from Tale of the Pilgrim and the Iron Sleet blog.

Iron Sleet can be found in my followed blogs on the right hand side.

Hopefully will have something to post up in the next week or so.

Game 1 turn 1 of the Campaign

Tonight we played the first game in a Campaign being run by friends Tony and Jay.

I had 25 power from army off 40 that had crash landed due to a mysterious fog. In the background one of Jay's custom built objectives is waiting to be destroyed.

Have the 2nd game next week at Warhammer World so I am hoping to have at least one of the units completed.

Ultramarine- WIP Primaris Intercessor

Ultramarine- WIP Primaris Intercessor

Woke early this morning and was inspired to finally start work on the Primaris Marines from the Dark Imperium box set. With having recently completed the Ultramarine Captain I rather liked the metallic blue, so using the clear Calth Blue popped this over highlighted Leadbelcher. A around 4 thin coats and I am happy with the coverage. Just the gun and the decals to finish off then to work on the rest of the unit.

Jay and Tony are working on a narrative campaign so I am just waiting on the email with what we need to have in our forces.

But with an HQ complete and the start on the first Tactical unit progress is looking good.

So what about my Death Guard? I will write up a post on why they have been put on the back burner for now.

Card of The Week - Team Yankee Cobra

Card of The Week - Team Yankee Cobra
This weeks card of the Week is the AH-1 Cobra for Team Yankee

Unit cards are by no means a new thing in war-gaming, but what I like at about the ones made for Team Yankee is the front of the card covers all the stats in nice large bold text, and the reverse carries points selection amount. Also are all the special rules for the unit, which means rather than constant rulebook referencing during the game you can just pick up the card.
What I also really like about the Team Yankee range is that the cards come in the box sets so no need to buy a separate deck.

So the Cobras are built undercoating will take place next week, and will post some more progress shots of the growing army.
