40K Mini-Campaign: The Maelstrom Gauntlet

Welcome back to the Vault my fellow Venturers! Today's post involves a trip to the archives to re-visit a set of Warhammer 40,000 campaign rules some friends and I played some years ago, and freshen them up for 8th Edition; The Maelstrom Gauntlet! Archon Varchilde is ready to pick it up and take on the challenge.

A week is a long time in 40K. What the FAQ?

The last couple of weeks have been very exciting in the 40K universe. We've seen the Dark Eldar Codex released (more on that later in the post) and the Big FAQ 1 released. You can find plenty of details, commentary and analysis elsewhere on the Internet regarding the full extent of the changes, but I thought I'd pick out a few of the pertinent details and how they apply to some of my forces.

First Founding Frostgrave: Queen Gladys and her Knights of Numenor

Welcome back to the Vault for more Frostgrave fun! One of the quirkier side rules of the Rune Stone Race campaign is that players are awarded bonus XP for writing back stories for their Wizards and Warbands, and they are embracing this aspect with gusto.

So for your literary pleasure I am proud to present Amit's Warband: Queen Gladys and her Knights of Numenor.

Frostgrave: The Sanctum of the Sigilists

Many Wizards and their Warbands are scouring the ruins of Felstad, seeking Rune Stones and other clues towards finding the fabled Sigilist's Tablet of Power. The location of the Sanctum of the Sigilists has recently been discovered, and the Tablet of Power seen within.

Each Wizard is gathering their followers and rushing to the Sanctum, hoping to claim the Tablet of Power before their rivals. And of course there is the not so simple matter of the Sanctum's Guardians and casting the Ritual of Control.

Power Armoured Paint: Scout Forces Complete!

Welcome back to the Vault my fellow Venturers; I hope you are enjoying your Easter Eggs, other chocolate treats, and of course, indulging in some hobby time over the holiday weekend. With the realisation that Mayhem is a mere handful of weeks away I've been knuckling down to painting as I still have most of my Space Shark army to complete!

I'm making good progress and so far this weekend I've completed the Scouts. Here's the first squad:
