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…

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.

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…

My Dark Angels pre-orders arrived! Thoughts on the supplement & time to start list building.

Yesterday I received my Dark Angels pre-orders from my FLGS. I’ve opened everything, read through the majority of the supplement and must say, I’m over the moon with the book. Now it is quite thin, being just a supplement. (You will still need the main space marine codex if you want to play this faction.) However what it provides is background lore on the Dark Angels, as well as an explanation of the Chapter’s structure, squad markings and paint schemes for the main chapter itself, as well as the Dark Angels successor chapters.

Cities of Sigmar- 500 point list update

It’s been quite a busy week here but between work and progressing the Legions of Nagash army, I’ve managed to find a bit of time to work on my 500 point Cities of Sigmar force. The goal will be to have my list fully painted and ready to play against the Legions of Nagash 500 point force once this current lock down ends. So lets start with the list and then take a look at the current state of the minis.
