The Webways are Opening! #9 Grotesques!

Nick speaking,

More Phase Two goodness for my new Dark Eldar army that I am doing for the £25.00 Army Challenge. With £18.06 left, and a two Rat Ogres in my box to be used as Grotesques. I was looking for one more model to make a unit...
Rat Ogres seem to be going for a fair amount of money on eBay, so I can't tell you how delighted I was when a good buddy of mine on YouTube said he had a Rat Ogre I could have. The thing is, not only did Mike from Mammoth Painting Studios send me one Rat Ogre, but he is sent me six! Wow, thank you Mike I am so lucky and you my friend are very generous!



That gives me two units of four or one big unit of eight. Don't worry though, I know I have been given a lot of models for free for this project, but I have just spent some of the money left over on another eBay purchase. Once that arrives I will let you know what it is. In the meantime, please head on over and give Mammoth a sub for me!

The Year of the Wolf (25)

Nick speaking,

More Space Wolves to paint and add to my 13th Company army, and this time it will be a unit of Missile Launcher Long Fangs. I had a lot of fun painting the Lascannon unit, and only painting five men at one time seemed to be a bit easier than when I painted my Grey Hunters. First though I need to take them off the bases and prep them for painting...

My First 40K Tournament - The List!

Nick speaking,

Back to my first Tournament, The Pompey Pillage which is coming up in August. As I previously posted, there are a few things to take into consideration when it comes to making a list for this event, including some restrictions on what you can take. Taking that and the fact that it's my first ever tournament into account, I have decided to taker my beloved Necrons, and of course, knowing me, my first thoughts are towards a Flayed One based list!


I have a 2k list based around six units of Flayed Ones, but this event is only 1800 points, and coupled with the restrictions, it was impossible to take all sixty Flayed Ones. To be fair, I even struggled to get four units of Flayed Ones in the list. It could have been done, but I would then have to drop one Canoptik Harvest formation, and the whole army works around having two of those, so three units of Flayed Ones it is!


I am not expecting to win the event with the army, or even to do that well, but I know the army pretty well and how it works, plus Necrons are pretty resilient and forgiving at the moment, so hopefully I will have a chance of taking a couple of games. Either way, I am going for the experience first and foremost, and it should be a lot of fun. Here is my list at the moment, I really would be happy to receive any feedback you may have.

Flayed Cron Decurion Detachment (1800pts)

Reclamation Legion Formation

1 x Overlord/Shroud/Shifter (140)
9 x Immortals (153)
2x 10 x Warriors (260)
5 x Tomb Blades/Beamers/Vanes/Scopes (120)

Auxilary
10x Flayed Ones (130)
10x Flayed Ones (130)
10x Flayed Ones (130)

Canoptek Harvest Formations

3 x Canoptek Scarabs (60)
6 x Canoptek Wraiths/Whip coils (258)

Canoptek Harvest Formations
1 x Canoptek Spyder (50)  
3 x Canoptek Scarabs (60)
6 x Canoptek Wraiths/Whip coils (258)

1799 points

Necron Living Tomb Decurion Battle Report

Nick speaking,

You have seen me paint the models, read about me choosing a list and now it's time to see my Living Tomb Formation in action! As you can see from the teaser picture, Blood Angels were the first army to face the Tomb and the Death Company seem to be in trouble, but how will it all pan out in the end?

Necron Living Tomb Decurion List

Nick speaking,

So now I have my Living Tomb Formation painted, I need a list for it! It's an interesting formation with three big tanks clocking up seven hundred points, so we are going to have to make full use of the formations special rules for sure. Of course, you only need one Monolith to make this formation, but for me it's all about the visuals, so I want to max out on the tanks...


The first thing to look at is the Obelisk, which along with the two Monoliths have to stay in reserve and deep strike in. The Obelisk comes out automatically on turn two, which is great, sadly it does scatter though. The small flyer base it's on should make it a little easier to not mishap and with your fingers crossed you should make it into battle turn two


As for the Monoliths, if you deep strike them in within twelve inches of the Obelisk you don't scatter, which for a six inch square base is great. Having said that, the Monoliths still have to roll a dice to come out of reserve. This brings me onto my HQ choice for the army, Nemesor! On turn two we will adapt his tactics and take the Warlord trait that adds one to our reserve rolls. Now everything in the army is coming out turn two on anything but a one. Nemesor is in the Decurion attachment, and with less numbers on the table due to the points spent on the tanks, we are going to need that 4+ RP roll


The other special rule of the formation is that once the Monoliths are down, you can immediately teleport a unit through each Monoliths door form reserve! Like I said at the start, I am going for the visual of how this army is going to look on the table, and for me, you can't get much more epic looking than twenty Warriors teleporting out of each Monolith right after they deep strike in. A couple of Immortal units will have to weather the storm on the table with some Tomb Blades until the formation arrives. Five Immortals to just hide and Ten Immortals to go with Nemesor. That leaves me with a few points left over for an addition deep striking distraction unit!


Enter the Transcendent C'tan, and why not, I have just painted him, and I think he will work well as the distraction unit in this army. Overall, I think this list is going to be a lot of fun and look really cool on the table...

Living Tomb Decurion List 1

Reclamation Legion
1x Nemesor (150)
10x Immortals (170)
5x Immortals (85)
20x Warriors (260)
20x Warriors (260)    
5 x Tomb Blades/Beamers/Vanes/Scopes (120)

Auxiliary
1 x Transcendent  C’Tan (250)

Living Tomb Formation
1 x Obelisk (300)
1 x Monolith (200)
1 x Monolith (200)

Points 1995

Ten points left to play with, but for now the list is locked and loaded ready for some action. Battle Report coming soon, but if you have any comments or suggestion on the list please feel free to let me know.

Chaos Space Marines Vs Necrons (Black Toad Studio Battle Report)

Nick speaking,

Time for the battle report of the game I had against Dom from Black Toad Studios. We both had a fantastic day and I really enjoyed playing again his Chaos Space Marine army. It was stunningly painted and Dom was a gentleman to play against. Don't forget to check out the Black Toad YouTube Channel and give him a sub. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the battle report...

Living Tomb Formation - Showcase

Nick speaking,

Here we go, I have finally finished painting up my Living Tomb Formation. The Obelisk is totally magnetised to be a Tesseract Vault, so I have painted all the extras as well, including the Transcendent C'tan. Very happy to have these finished and I can't wait to play them in a game sometime soon!

Living Tomb Formation - C'tan and Base Started

Nick speaking,

I know the Transcendent C'tan isn't actually part of the formation, but as my Obelisk is magnetised into the Vault, I want to paint the C'tan up at the same time, plus I think I am probably going to feature him in my Living Tomb list somehow anyway! It took me a long time to figure out how I was going to paint this bad boy, but I have finally decided to go with a metal body and have it morphing into green on the power tendrils! So far I have just done the metal, but I think my scheme is going to work quite nicely...


As for the base for the Obelisk/Vault, I thought it would be pretty cool to use the extra Scarabs and Vault pieces I didn't use from the kit and make a little Swarm of Scarabs that would follow the Vault, repairing it as it moved along. The base is done and I am pleased with how it is looking, I just need to paint it now...
