Book Review: Warriors of Ultramar

Warriors of Ultramar

This is book two in Graham McNeill's first Ultramarines Omnibus, and it is fantastic. I am really liking the authors writing style and cannot put his books down. This one follows on from book one 'Nightbringer', but you do not need to read that first to enjoy this novel. 

For any Space Marine / Tyranid / Battlefleet Gothic lover, I suggest you read it and all his other books for that matter, anyway, please take a look at my review below and go read it.


Forge World Stormblade Arkurain Pattern Rules

Stormblade Arkurain Pattern

Forge world have just released updated rules for the Stormblade Arkurain Pattern Super Heavy Tank, the can be found 'Here' in PDF format free to download.

Many Forge Worlds build their own variants of the STC Shadowsword design, armed with different weapons. It is believed the Stormblade, mounting a massive Plasma Blastgun to replace the Shadowsword’s Volcano cannon, was first constructed on Ryza, where the ancient art of plasma weaponry construction are still practiced, and elevated to masterpieces of Imperial technology. As well as its main weapon the Stormblade is also armed with turret mounted lascannons and sponson mounted heavy bolters, making it a fearsome opponent.

The Arkurian-pattern hull is perhaps the most common type of super-heavy hull across the many Forge Worlds capable of producing such technological marvels, although more conservative Priests of the Machine Cult view the rarer Mars-pattern hull as superior.

The Super Heavy Tank  can be purchased from Forge World 'Here'.

Special Mission II: Fighting Withdrawal

Special Mission II: Fighting Withdrawal

Here is Realm of Warhammer 40k's second Special Mission. During play testing this mission, we found it usually brings total carnage across the battlefield. Unless you agree beforehand on which party you are paying, you will have to build an army that can move quickly but also deliver a hard punch, for until the dice are rolled, you wont know which job you will doing, attacking or withdrawing. Generally, both players will end up with few models left on the board. For best results, download the PDF file from the link below and print for better quality.

Legion Sicaran Battle Tank

Legion Sicaran Battle Tank

For those that may not have yet seen, this is one awesome Battle Tank from 'Forge World'.

One of the most advanced armoured units in the arsenal of the Great Crusade, the Sicaran Battle Tank was the exclusive province of the Space Marine Legions. The Sicaran utilises component technologies from various STC patterns to create a high-speed ‘destroyer’ tank to complement the more commonplace Predator and Land Raider designs.

The primary armament of the main Sicaran variant is the sophisticated Herakles pattern accelerator autocannon, a superior rapid-firing and highly accurate weapon. It fires shells at far higher velocities than a standard autocannon, enabling it to successfully track and engage swift moving targets and pinpoint vulnerabilities in enemy armour with lethal precision.

Special Mission I: Bird Down

Special Mission I: Bird Down

We have all played the normal Eternal War missions found in the main Warhammer 40,000k rulebook, and with 6th edition these are still quite varied. But I wanted to mix things up a little, so with the help of my brother, we have come up with a few different missions for you all to play.

Nemesis Dreadknight: Brother Diego

Grey Knight Nemesis Dreadknight: Brother Diego

Introducing, Brother Diego, my second Nemesis Dreadknight for my 4th Brotherhood Grey Knight army. I have spent quite a bit of time on this model and have done a lot of not so much converting but I would say altering. Mainly the repositioning of the left leg, both the Dreadknight and Pilot, but also the clever addition of magnets to enable a full weapon swaps if required.

Those of you that may not have noticed, this Dreadknight has also been given a Halberd close combat weapon as opposed to a Greatsword or Daemon Hammer. This was really fun to make and I will explain how I did it later. I have also been learning to use my camera a little more efficiently, so these photos are slightly different from the others on the blog and I hope they are more pleasing to the eye. Anyway more photos below.
