Tactical Squad from Assault on Black Reach

I have finished the Tactical marines from the Assault on Black Reach box. They are more detailed than the marines from the old starter set (Battle for Maccragge), but still, their poses are quite boring. The biggest problem however, is that the tactical markings on their shoulder pads are not correct for dark angels, so I had to scrape those all off.





Also I finished the crashed pilot/scientist model, I'll call him "Dr. Zoatberg" :)

The defence of LV-426: event coverage



Each year the club Xhammer strives to organise a cool demonstration game. We then show it at various Belgian wargames conventions.

This year we organised a large Warhammer 40K Apocalypse Battle. It features the attack of a Tyranid swarm on a doomed city from LV-426.

The impressive Tyranid army is played by wiz, while the city is defended by the space wolves of Grimduck and my dark angels (Shadowhunter).

A long line of trenches separates the city from the wasteland. Wiz and Grimduck made the cool terrain that features huge buildings, a lot of ruins and very realistic trenches.

Its a really great battle, drenched with a feeling of doom while the defenders try to hold back the numberless Tyranids. We used some objectives and special rules to balance the 2 forces.

You can see some images of this game in action (look for the grey 40K city, marines and big green nasty Tyranids), together with pictures from the other great tables and miniatures.

This is a dwarf army I painted a while ago. All the miniatures are from the Battle for Skull Pass set (about 500 points worth). They where really fun to paint and where sold on ebay afterwards.

40K scenery: crashed aquila

I'm working on some Dark Angels miniatures right now, in the meanwhile here are some pics of an older terrain piece: the crashed aquila plane from the Battle for Maccragge set.
