Ork looted basilisk

To continue with the recent theme of ork vehicles, I present the ork looted basilisk. The basilisk is a great vehicle in that is allows orks to cause damage beyond the 24” to 36” range. With the ordinance changes in 4th edition I don’t bring it out as often as I use to, but it […]

Loyalist Death Guard Family Photo

Here is a gratuitous photo I took recently with my new camera. It had been a while since I took a “family photo” of the entire army. I had added several new units to it and the older group photo was the in the very first post I ever made here on Bell of Lost […]

TACTICA: Eldar army construction 101

“Harden your soul against decadence. But do not despise it, for the soft appearance of the decadent may be deceptive. One need only consider the Harlequin dancers of the Eldar to see the truth of this proposition”-Leman Russ, A Book of Admonitions for the Legiones Astartes You are ready to tread the Eldar Path at […]

Deathcult assassins, Delaque style

I’m not a big fan of the deathcult assassin’s that GW puts out. The acrobatic sword swinging ninja’s look more Elder than Imperial. For the Adeptus Arbites army I’ve been building I wanted grittier, down to earth, stab you in a dark ally looking assassins.I started out with Necromunda’s Delaque gang figures. Their trench coats […]

TACTICA: Vindicare Assassin

“Exitus Acta Probat: the Outcome Justifies the Deed.” — Dictatus Vindicare The Vindicare is a popular Imperial Assassin with new players, but it takes a lot of skill to “earn back his points”. New players are often inspired to add him to their army by the portrayal of the Imperial Assassin in Vindicare, a short […]


I mentioned a few weeks back that I built an ork flyer. I figured today was as good a day as any to show some pics of it. I started off with a MIG 15 model kit. It matched what I pictured for an ork flyer pretty well, and only needed a few frame modifications. […]

TACTICA: Apothecary

I’ve played against Medics in Imperial Guard armies many times. I’ve used Chirurgeons in my Inquisitorial armies for years. But I rarely pulled out my Apothecary (in any of my Space Marine armies). I loved the model, but I could never seem to justify the extra points. With the new Dark Angels codex, I thought […]

TACTICA: Army Design

This is a first in a series of posts regarding the basics of selecting, designing, and collecting an army. I usually see tons of post saying, “here check out this unbeatable list”, yadda, yadda, and most of those lists suck, or are so ridiculous that no one would ever actually field them or play against […]

Scythes of the Emperor Logo Sheet

I have been noting for a while that GW does a great job of covering the major 1st Founding and select 2nd Founding chapters with their decal sheets. However, there are a number of great looking 2nd and later founding chapters who get a good amount of back-story and have great alternative uniform colors that […]

Terrain Workshop: Roads

One of the terrain features that is often overlooked and underused is roads. Building sectional roads is not as hard as it may seem, but it is a little more involved that the other terrain pieces I have written about. It takes several steps to make a road, but it is hard to make them […]
