The Warden Knight Titan is the defender of an Adeptus Titanicus Fiefdom and excells in long range fire support for the Crusader Knight Titans and has more armor (but is slower)!

The Crusader Knight Titans teleport into combat and excell at attacking vehicles/monsterous creatures and are very fast compared to the Warden Knight Titans...

Pushing paint...

I never understood what that meant.  Now I do.  I hung out down at my local GW Shop yesterday and painted.  I managed to get black all over myself, the painting station, and a little bit on my models.  Mostly where it shouldn't go.  I'm heading down there today as well and we'll see how many more models get the black.  As of yesterday I have 18 models with RED, WHITE, SAND BEIGE, and BLACK on them.  Who would have thunk it?  In the past I paid people to paint my models for me, that is not an option with this Army so I'm slogging it alone.  I play in my first 40K League tomorrow evening and quite honestly the shame of having unpainted models is what is driving me to paint my own figs.  And I use "paint" in it's broadest sense...

(I'll take some pictures today and post them on this blog post)

Next Friday Night I enter the 40K League

This coming Friday Night my local GW Shop is restarting it's 40K League at 1,000 pts and I am entering my partially painted Praetorian Imperial Guard Army.  I have a painted base, and red and white on my models.  All tanks are base painted sand beige.  All my artillery, heavy weapons, and Aegis Line is base coated silver.  Who would have thought I would ever have that much paint on my models....

MEN OF HARLICH, COME TO GLORY, THIS WILL EVER, BE YOUR STORY...

I've been playing in the open 40K battles held on Friday nights down at my local GW Shop!  I've lost most of my battles but I'm doing better. 


THINGS I NEED TO REMEMBER TO DO:
 
  1. Remember all of my special rules
  2. Remember to issue orders to my troops
  3. Remember to shoot all of my heavy weapons
  4. Remember to shoot my heavy weapons correctly
  5. Remember to shoot the Lascannon on my Vanquisher

24th Levy of Foot/36th Imperial Regiment of Waels (and my Hydra Battery)
I tend to "Castle" a lot with my combined squads...
My Armour is on the move!
My Opposition...
I really love playing Warhammer 40K!

2 things

  1. I might actually put some paint on some of my figs.
  2. I might actually glue my huge gothic building together.

(if either occurs, rest assured I'll post pics for proof!)

Well it had to happen some time...

I just played my first game of 40K in YEARS!  The last two sets of rules came and went and I never played game one under either set.  So the 6th Edition was the catalyst for me.  Yay!  I undercoated my 500 pt Praetorian Imperial Guard Army in red and spray painted by bases desert tan.  I know.  But I have started playing, who knows, maybe I'll be embarassed about my Army and paint some of it.  Stranger things have happened.  Tonight's battle was 500 pts of  Praetorian (me) allied with 500 pts of Sisters of Battle (not me) VS 1000 pts of Crimson Fist Space Marines (Eric).  I ran two 10 man squads with a Grenade Launcher and Lascannon in a Combined Squad, a 10 man Veteran Squad with Sgt. Harker, and a Platoon Command Squad.  The first turn was seized by Eric and he proceeded to shoot everything he had against my Combined Squad and whittled it down to 6 models.  ::sigh::  My Veteran Squad holed up in a building (Love those 4+ cover saves!) and spent the entire game shooting Space Marines.  My Sister of Battle ally did really well and polished off half of the Space Marines.  When we had to stop playing (shops have annoying tendencies to stick to their open hours), our side was winning by a long ways.  In Eric's defense I haven't seen such bad dice rolls in a long time...
