Regimental Reporting: Order! Order!

Welcome back to the Regimental Mess my fellow Officers. Following on from last week's inaugural 8th edition action for the Imperial Guard I've been pondering some of the toys the new Codex offers the wily general, and I've decided to focus first of all on a Commander's best friend, Orders!

It is a documented fact that the best troop in the entire universe is the Mighty Imperial Guardsman, and Orders just make them even mightier!*

*Evidence on available from your local Ministorum Propogandum liaison officer. 

Infantry advance!

Regimental Reporting: Staysback strikes back!

Welcome back to the Vault brave Venturers. This post comes at the end of the regular monthly gaming weekend; board games on the Saturday evening, followed by a game of 40K on the Sunday.

The board games evening was taken up with a play test of Salt Lands (more of that to come in a future post), whilst I took the opportunity to take the mighty Imperial Guard to the battle field for the first time in 8th edition, led by the brave, charming and incredibly ruthless* Colonel Staysback.

(*some of these descriptions may not necessarily be true; the Colonel values shiny medals and saving his own skin above all else).

The Imperial Guard needs you!

Power from Paint: Octoberfest Report

The Cult of the Sand Viper went to war, and did not fare the better for it! The meagre tally of slaves taken in battle has displeased the Archon, but the Dark Eldar are now much wiser to the modern ways of waging war and will be better prepared for next time!

Welcome back to the Vault; its time for the post Octoberfest pictures and thoughts.

The Archon's two aims: Look good, not get killed and give away "Slay the Warlord"

Power from Paint: Ready to Raid

Welcome once again my fellow Archons. Today is a bonus mid-week post, as I've finished the painting on the last model for my Dark Eldar raiding party for Saturday's Octoberfest.

It's the obligatory finished army picture post (and some tournament ramblings of course)!

Ready to Rumble!

Power from Paint: Octoberfest Approaches!

Welcome back to the Vault my fellow Archons. This week the Cult of the Sand Viper is receiving  reinforcements straight from the Paint Shop in the form of a Ravager armed with the fearsome Disintegration Cannons.

And just in time because in less than a week the Cult go to war at First Founding's Octoberfest Tournament!
