500 Points Newbie Campaign

I'm honest:
My first idea was to field 500 Points of flying and swarming Tyranids which might have ended in not so much fun. Flyrant, Warriors... not so much nice stuff.

Next idea: Fielding admech. Well beginners campaign and I'm not so mad about scrolling around for five different weapons for one squad. Sorry guys: You're out!

One also mean idea was to field just one Imperial Knight. Not much to carry but frustrating for the kids I guess. I've seen my small one stomping a Terminator Squad...

Khorne Daemons? Never played them outside of Age of Sigmar so they're not my first choice.

Ultramarines? Why not. I've a bunch of these guys from the Black Reach Box. But just one troop choice so: Nope... They're out. I'm not going unbound.

What's left on my shelf? Good old Blood Angels!

Gamification of Wargaming

Everybody loves achievments. And unfortunately there are (nearly) none for wargaming. Well, until now.
Pimpcorn from Bell of Lost Souls introduced a nice set of achievments.

Let's see how much points I can score...

Deathwatch - Week 1 (and a half)

I'm honest: My first thought about the Deathwatch-Release was: I don't need this. I'll wait until they're sold seperatly.

But as you can see, I caved in and bought the full release. I've to admit that I split the box with a friend who get's all the Eldar-Stuff. So finally it was a bargain for both of us.

Cerastus Knight - Castigator WIP #1

I haven't painted a lot lately because of real work and other real-life projects that needed attention.
I decided to start with my Cerastus Knight for my Armies on Parade-Board and as support for my House Hazamel.

So step 1: Cleaning Resin!

Unfortunately I found something like this (a lot...)
