Going on Campaign

Well, the gaming group and I have decided to put some story behind our games for the next couple weeks. This coming Sunday officially kicks off the Battle for Coriallis 4. We don't have all the fluff worked out, but basically the Black Legion has invaded and my Dark Angels are the closest ones able to respond. With all the fighting on the planet, of course Orks are attracted and rumors of the Tyranid menace have began floating around.

The plan we have is a campaign map with a random Risk style deployment. Each player will make a 10000 point "master roster" and then divide up that master roster into as many Army Groups as they want, each no bigger that 2,999 points. 2 Army Groups are allowed to ignore the FOC, as one is dedicated attackers and one dedicated defenders. The defense force is allowed one Super Heavy or Apocalypse formation in it as well, however, they cannot move from your capital.

We will also be incorporating Kill Team. Each player is assigned 200 points to make a Kill Team. They will be able to assist an Army Group in an attack, or they themselves can go attack an undefended territory and take it from the owner, but they can't capture it.

There are also rules in place for experience points, so units can advance and gain USR's based on how much experience they have gained. Kill Team members and Independent and Special Characters will also have a separate attribute table to roll on, both for advancement from experience and dying in a game.

All in all, its shaping up to be a fun couple weeks. I'm pretty excited for it to begin. Saturday is Games Day here in Honolulu, so we get to do that and begin our campaign in one weekend. I'm looking forward to it.

More Terminator Progress

Terribly sorry about the double post. Please forgive me!

Just wanted to share some more progress I made on the first squad of Deathwing, and their assigned Land Raider. Not much done other than just basecoating. I've decided to give The Vanus Temple way of things a try and see how that works out. Without keeping you in suspense any longer, here's the pics!

Tomorrow I need to finish basecoating the Land Raider and wash all the models. After that, they will start to get some color other than tan!

Terminator WIP

Just a quick update on some work I did on some terminators tonight. These guys will be painted up as Deathwing once they get to that point. All the arms have been magnetized, but I'm still cleaning them up so I didnt have them attatched. Here are a couple close up's.

In other news, my marines finally came in the mail, so now all I'm waiting for is the Guard to show up, and I will have all my stuff.

The First Wave Has Landed

Just yesterday I was playing Star Craft 2. In particular, it was the level that the Terran Dominion decided it was a good idea to invade the planet Char, which is the home world of the Zerg. After looking at this picture, I think I know what the Terran's felt like when they looked out the window of their drop pods.

In a slightly less dorky vain, I got some of my collection back today. On the table you see all manner of Games Workshop shwag. 40K, Fantasy, LoTR, Space Hulk......too much stuff. Its almost like a time machine in a way, with miniatures starting out at RTB01 and going all the up to Space Hulk 3rd Edition.

With the return of some of my minis, and just importantly these bad boys, "The Almighty Bitz Boxes", you the reader will begin to enjoy regular updates here on The Unforgiven.

Also, stay tuned for this weekends Apocalypse battle report! Its my first ever Apocalypse game and I couldn't be more excited! Wish me luck!
