Dark Angels Crusade- Part 1: Setting Up

During the last few weeks I’ve been playing practice games of Warhammer 40k in preparation for a crusade campaign with my gaming group. It’s been a lot of fun getting to grips with my Dark Angels and I’ve slowly built up a list which I think will perform quite well while also being fluffy. In today’s blog post, I want to run through my Crusade Roster setup and talk about which units I’ve chose ahead of the coming games. Lets get to it.

1 Year of WordPress Blogging & Hobby updates

I received an e-mail this morning notifying me that this blog has been active for a year and what a strange year it has been. A side effect of the Covid crisis and being forced to stay in lockdown has been an increase in spare time for hobby projects. It’s been an opportunity to work through my backlog and get a few long term projects cleared away. What’s more, it’s been an opportunity to begin blogging about the hobby. When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. 😀

Speed of the Raven- 25PL Dark Angels List Development & Gameplay

A few weeks ago, I played my first game of Warhammer 40k at 25PL and came away with a few observations. I was essentially running the combat patrol box and though I was able to make a mess of the enemy warlord in a single turn via the Redemptor’s Micro Plasma incinerator, I just didn’t have enough board presence. Due to this, my opponent was able to simply stay out of line of sight and capture the objectives, obtaining a comfortable win on points. I went back to the drawing board and came away with a revised list which I got to play on Thursday. Here is how it went…

Index Hereticus: The Fallen- A Review

When I heard there where updated rules for The Fallen in this issue of White Dwarf, I was very excited. Being a Dark Angels fanboy, the possibility of having a solid ruleset to represent the arch enemy of my chapter and possibly even see some new lore was too good to pass up. Coupled with the phenomenal artwork of Cypher on the cover, (by Diana Martinez,) this issue promised to be something very special indeed.

Getting ready for my first game of 40k 9th Edition (With post game summary and my thoughts.)

My local gaming shop is re-opening it’s doors to players which means I will finally be able to play a game of 40k 9th edition. This is quite strange for me as though I’ve been involved with Warhammer for years, I’ve never been that involved in the gaming side of things. Since deciding to get back into 40k last year and getting my Dark Angels army, I’ve been fully intending to play and now the opportunity is finally here, I’m a bit nervous.

My Dark Angels Librarian & Crusade 50 power level army list

The final piece to the current version of my Dark Angels army is a librarian which I have been tinkering with for a little bit now. Following the release of the codex and seeing just how potent a Dark Angels psyker can be, I knew I had to get one. I picked up the primaris librarian model and began tinkering with it a bit.

Army on Parade- Dark Angels 2k Points

Throughout March I’ve been focusing on getting my Dark Angels painted up in an alternative Horus Heresy style paint scheme. I recently had a week off work and set myself the challenge of getting the whole 2000 points army completed to a table top standard. It’s been a fair bit of work and a slog in some places but I’m pleased to say that this project is now completed. Here is my 2000 points of Dark Angels.

Dark Angels Hobby Update

It’s been a little while since my last post but I’ve been keeping busy by working on my Dark Angels. Progress has been steady over the last month however I now have a week off work and want to see if I can get my list completed to a table top standard by Sunday. With this goal in mind, I wanted to start off the week by sharing a bunch of photographs of the army as it currently stands.

I’ve been doing a fair bit of work over the last week with my Dark Angels, adding some finishing touches to my Ravenwing and Deathwing. You will have already seen these miniatures from my previous posts however I’ve now finished adding red detailing to tie these miniatures into the new paint scheme for my “green wing”.

Dark Angels Army progress- I hear you are a heretic now?

It’s been a few days since my last post showing the finished Legions of Nagash force and I’ve been busy working on my Dark Angels. I’ve built the Combat Patrol box as well as a Talon Master, meaning I now have all the miniatures built for my 2000 point list! However one step forward, two steps back…
