Beachhead Brawl Tournament: Game 1- White Scars vs Raven Guard

A while back, I travelled down to Bournemouth for the Beachhead Brawl, a six-game ITC tourmanent. This was using the old ITC missions, it's just taken me that long to get them written up!

Army Showcase- Genestealer Cults

Today's hobby showcase features my Genestealer Cults army. This is the latest of my armies that I have painted up. I took a lot of time on these models, using a number of GW tutorials to help me with painting up the force. I really like the look of the army, the way the orange contrasts with the other colours on the models, it really makes them stand out.

Army Showcase- Deathwatch

Today I have some photos of my Deathwatch army, taking this weekend while I was bored. I've added a number of Primaris units in recent months and look forward to trying these out when we can play games again.

Hobby Update 11/05/20- Deathwatch Primaris Inceptors

This past week, I've been working on some more Primaris forces for my Deathwatch army. I painted up five Inceptors to add the force. 

My plan is to field one in each of my Primaris squads, along with a unit of 3 to Deep Strike in with their firepower on turn 2 when the Tactical Doctrine is active. I quite enjoyed how this unit worked in my White Scars army, so added some to the Deathwatch.

Hobby Update 04/05/20- Deathwatch Primaris Reivers

Today's hobby update features a unit of Reivers for my Deathwatch army. I took this squad from my Dark Angels force, stripped them down and converted them to have Bolt Carbines. I had some spares from an Infiltrator kit, and thought it would be a better option than the Heavy Bolter Pistol and combat knives. 

The squad provides another deep strike unit for the army, and saves me from spending command points to infiltrate with them.

Hobby Update 01/05/20- Deathwatch Primaris Hellblasters

Today's hobby update features a unit of Hellblasters for my Deathwatch army. I've had these sitting for a while, waiting to get painted up, so I took the opportunity at the weekend when I was painting up my other units. 

I don't think they'll see too many games, as they are simply too expensive to field at the moment. I might give them a go in a mixed kill team to see how they fare.

Hobby Update 29/04/20- Deathwatch Primaris Aggressors

I actually managed to get some painting done over the weekend. With the new Deathwatch rules being released in White Dwarf, I figured I would take a look at my Deathwatch Primaris units once more. 
I will be putting together some of my thoughts on the new Deathwatch rules, but still haven't been able to get a copy of the White Dwarf yet (yes, I know there are leaks online, but I prefer to have it in hand). 

First up was a unit of Aggressors. I had built these guys over Christmas, but was waiting to see what Chapter I would add them to. The Psychic Awakening rules for Dark Angels were a bit lacklustre for me (so much so that I haven't picked up the book yet), so I decided they would be added to my Deathwatch as part of my expanded Primaris Kill Teams. 

I managed to get this squad painted up on Saturday, so these three warriors are ready to be added to the Deathwatch forces, when I can next get a game in.
