Blood Angels: 3rd Company and support elements

Larry Vela 2 Minute Read May 21

With the impending Blood Angel frenzy coming our way from GW, this is as good a time as any to take a look at my very first army. The Blood Angels. This army was started the same day I picked my copy of Rogue Trader and my first 40k purchase ever: the RTB-1 boxed set […]

Size Matters


I finished up the basing on the Reaver. I put it on a 12″ wood plaque and decorated it with a ruined urban theme using the plastic ruins from the old 3rd edition boxed set. I thought everyone would enjoy one nice large “Family Photo” of the budding titan family with some other minis thrown […]

Larry Vela 4 Minute Read May 18

I told you guys that I meant to get the Reaver into battle as soon as possible, and I have accomplished my goal. I got in 2 games last night at Battleforge Games, and they were both great. The Games Game 1: Secure and Control; 2000pts, My Reaver and 3 Death Guard tactical squads on […]

Angels of Redemption Logo Sheet

Larry Vela 2 Minute Read May 15

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 […]

Project: Reaver Titan – Part 2

Larry Vela 2 Minute Read May 11

Well, it’s been a week of burning the midnight oil. I spent a lot of research time figuring out what iconography a titan carries as well as designing and printing out my Legio Metalica Logo Sheet in both banner and decal form. But at long last… She Lives!!!! Rather than blather on about the titan […]

Legio Metalica Logo Sheet


Hi Everybody, I have had a busy weekend with my Reaver scouring the net and going waaaaaay back into my early 1990s stuff From Adeptus Titanicus to dig up background on my Titan Legion (The Legio Metalica). So without further ado here is the link to the PDF file for the Legio Metalica Banner/Logo sheet […]

Project: Reaver Titan


Did someone call for backup??? For those with sharp eyes, you will have noticed that waaaaaay back when I first started the blog, I put up a pic with every mini I own. Well in the back of that photo was my ancient Reaver Titan. Did I mention I LOVE titans? Being an old time […]

Iron Hands 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.

Death Guard: Infantry (Loyalist & Traitor)

Larry Vela 2 Minute Read April 30

I realized I had never put up some nice pics of the meat and potatoes of my Death Guard army: The Infantry! I wanted to put up 3 pics here so I can talk about something that everyone in the Pre-Heresy community can take advantage of; a little pre-planning. From the outset, I wanted my […]

Well Bulwark and I had a nice game this week. We hope to bring you more Battle Reports in the future so this post is a trial run. We rolled up a Rescue (the mission with the 6 objectives, one of which is the real one and 5 are dummies), and agreed to a 2000pt […]

Larry Vela 4 Minute Read April 23

So a boatload of rumours broke today on Warseer. Courtesy of a moderator (Brimstone), we have this list of tasty rumor nuggets: Warseer: CSM Rumor RoundupRumors This is a collection of Chaos Marine rumours, these are rumours NOT facts, if you want facts wait for the codex. I’ll be adding to it as more information […]

Imperial Guard: Necromunda 142nd

Larry Vela 2 Minute Read April 20

Here is an introduction to my Imperial Guard army. This thing is ancient. Clocking in at over 200 minis, the core of this army is a large force of Rogue Trader plastic guardsmen. Back then (1989), these guys came 36 to a box for $30!!! I painted them in a standard “army green” scheme, mainly […]
