So these past 2 weeks were pretty good for my Tau Empire! I made some good progress on the pathfinders unit and 2 of their drones and I managed to finish my Ethereal on Hover Drone for the painting competition in our local GW store. And I also got my feet wet with my first ever 40k game!
I had a pretty good week where I managed to lay the last touches on my greatswords moving them off the “still working on pile” and getting a colorscheme testmodel done for my Tau sept.
I have been contemplating an army for 40k for a while now, but the rule clusters had been preventing me to step in on more then one occasion. No more!!! 8th Edition is coming and looking more like AoS so I finally made the step to join this greater good thing.
A small update, this one was finished (in this state) for over a week now, but I finally decided to take pictures anyway as I will wait till Free People will get fleshed out to make a decision on how to go on with bases.
So without further ado here is Janus Dousa Bright Battlemage
Some more angles next
So this past weekend was Sinterklaas celebrations at our place (for you non dutch people, it’s the original version of your coca cola made santa claus 🙂 )
And I got some nice stuff for my hobby!
The Knight-Vexillor was a self bought present as I have an idea for my 1,5k and 2k Stormcast lists.
Got some nice scenery walls and fences to help me create a better table, New start Collecting box to boost my forces (and to bump the 3 Retributors up to 5 from the starterset)
And to bolster my Empire or Devoted of Sigmar with a box of Flagellants and it was the kind I didn’t have yet (got metal older ones (22))
(Overview pages are updated, but I still need to figure out what loadout I actually want for my Liberators and Prosecutors)
Now I haven’t taken the time to make notes and/or pictures (as I normally do for my battles) and to make a report in Battlechronicler which I used to do also, but I did want to give a few highlights from the battle. And this is an 8th Edition battle which I also won’t do anymore with my Seraphon. But just to be complete and have all my Battlereports in one place I thought I should share (of course with a date stamp on this post from when it occurred)
Volkmar the Grim has rallied his most holy warriors and sailed down the river Reik with a sacred vow on his lips. His destination is the troubled realm of Sylvania, home to terrors beyond imagining, and lair of the infamous Count Mannfred, an undying fiend who must be destroyed at all costs.
Heading south, Volkmar bade his men find the Vampire and burn his body to ash. By tracking down and interrogating the count’s lieutenants and cat’s paws, the crusaders could find their way right to the von Carstein’s door. The Witch Hunter von Korden is the first to locate his quarry; a Necromancer thrall of Mannfred’s known as Ghorst. As von Korden and his men push deeper into the grave-strewn wilderness, the dead stagger through the mists to meet them…
