Warcry: The Unmade

I've begun my new project: Warcry. Its the newest fantasy skirmish game from GW. Its set in the Eightpoints, the focal point of Chaos within the Mortal Realms and domain of Archaeon. My primary warband will be the Unmade, a tribe of cannibalistic mutilators seeking to join Archaeon's armies. They are the most terrifying sculpts that Games Workshop has ever produced. The other warbands being released are equally amazing in their own right. Games Workshop is clearly heading full steam into the world of "grimdark" fantasy with this new game.

Here is the first model I have painted for my warband. He is the Joyous One and second in command of the warband.

New project!

I just wanted to make the announcement that I have started my first major grimdark project of 2019. The name of the project is Terra Incognita and will be a catchall that will encompass all my future projects based on Holy Terra in different time periods stretching from Preunification all the way to the closing of the 41st millennium. The link to this project is at the top of the page. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoy creating it.

Shield-Captain of the Adeptus Custodes

Shield-Captain Albertus Armando Freir of the Adeptus Custodes.

Shield-Captain Albertus Armando Freir is currently assigned to the guardianship of the Borealis Chamber of Ordo Sinister as well as having operational command of any Shield Companies sent into the field in support of its psytitans. He possesses extensive knowledge of macro level battle tactics as well a complete understanding of the capabilities of both the knights of House Aurelius and the psytitans of Ordo Sinister.

In more recent times Shield-Captain Albertus and Ordo Sinister have found themselves deployed to assist Lockwarden Borsa Thursk in various reclamation missions as well as several seek and destroy missions against entities too powerful to be recaptured now that the Emperor is no longer able to take the field directly.

The Battle of Platform VI

This is my first Adeptus Titanicus battle report. Unfortunately this game was probably the shortest of all the games I've played so far. I was going to write it up as a story, but since it only goes till turn two it doesn't really last long enough to do that. So here it is in a more bare bones format.

Hostile Battlefield: The Shadow Sentry.
Battle Level: Confrontation.
Deployment: Close Quarters.

Tiger Eyes vs. War Griffons

Tiger Eyes (1250pts.):
Nightstalker - Reaver (Titan Stalker), twin gatling blasters, apocalypse missile launcher.
Mada - Reaver, twin reaver chainfists, apocalypse missile launcher.
Tenebris Angelus - Warhound, vulcan mega bolter, plasma blast gun. Hunting auspex.
Umbra Venandi - Warhound, plasma blast gun, vulcan mega bolter. Hunting auspex.
House Rajha Questoris Knight banner - 3 Gallant Knights.
4 stratagem points: Blind Barrage (1), Offensive Surge (3).
Objective: Engage and Destroy.

War Griffons (1100pts.Underdog):
Invictus Nova - Reaver (Reckless Maverick), twin laser blasters, apocalypse missile launcher. Motive Sub-reactors.

House Vyronii Questoris knight banner - 1 gallant, 1 paladin, 1 Warden.
House Vyronii Cerastus knight banner - 2 Lancers.
6 stratagem points: Blind Barrage (1), Sabotage (2), Orbital Lance Strike (2), Break Through (1).

Cargo (Invictus Nova).


 First Turn:

War Griffons: Use Orbital Strike on the Gallants, killing 2. Invictus Nova receives Full Stride orders. Lancers receive charge orders.

Repair Phase:
All Titans who need to vent plasma successfully.

Movement Phase:
Tiger Eyes:
War Griffons: Cancel Mada's Charge order and gives it Split Fire with Sabotage. Lancers Charge and kill Tenebris Angelus. Tenebris Angelus suffers a Magazine Detonation, destroying a piece of terrain, damaging the Lancers, and taking one shield off of Nightstalker. Invictus Nova activates a second time due to Reckless Maverick and moves within 4" of the board edge.

Combat Phase:
Tiger Eyes: Nightstalker kills a Cerastus Knight, Umbra Venadi damages the second Cerastus Knight.

Game ends in War Griffin victory after a failed charge attempt from Mada.

Acherons of House Rajha

The blue flames of House Rajha are feared by all their enemies. A special promethium is extracted from their homeworld. This promethium cannot be used in engines or for anything other than weaponizing for it corrodes the mechanisms it fuels with the exceptions of weapons. It is believed that this promethium is somehow related to phosphex, although the connection between the two is little understood. Death by the blue promethium is particularly painful even compared to normal promethium.

Two Acherons I converted from lancers for House Rajha. If GW ever comes up with a house crest for them I suppose I'll paint one on them.

Umbra Venandi, warhound of Legio Fureans

My first warhound of Legio Fureans, the Tiger Eyes.

I decided to go with an Ian Miller style on the carapaces of my two Warhound titans. This is the first of two.
