Adeptus Illuminatus VI

Here some impressions from today's tournament played with 2.000 points:

I became 15th of 30 participants. Not a great victory but I had a lot of fun and beer. Additionally, I won the competition for the Best Painted Army.

Here are all pictures in my ALBUM - enjoy! And for the German speaking and/or interested readers: my short TOURNAMENT REPORT

Psykers olé

The 4 Psykers are finished:

And an overall view of the squad: 

Hot, hotter, Meltaguns

The last 6 Guardsmen with Meltaguns - finally finished. I thought they'd never stop demanding paint. I hope I'll never need more than 10.

A well-known acquaintance

I promised to post new pics of the finished 1st Battle Psyker and here they are:

Neural torture...

Finally! The 2nd Psyker is finished and I'm really glad to post this. It was an awful paintjob and I'm not totally content with that bastard yet but that'll do for now.

He'll only be played when I set up a whole 10-man Psyker Squad. Here are the 4 new ones, already based:

Hope they'll be more fun to paint. And the 6 last Meltagun Guardsmen:

Still a lot of stuff to paint untill saturday but I'm confident.

First Battle Psyker

It was a lot of fun to paint this mini and so I finished it in nearly one go. I haven't varnished it yet, so I'm open for critique and and suggestions for improvement.

Shotgun- and Meltagun-Guardsmen

I get ahead quite good in the last days and so I could finish the 6 Shotgun- and 4 of 10 Meltagun-Guardsmen yesterday evening.

I'll paint the Chaos Sorcerer of Nurgle next for a change to all the Guardsmen painted in the passed days.

Overwhelming lasgun fire and magical powers

Hi there!
The 2 Chaos Sorcerers which I bought from an user on gw-fanworld.net arrived by today's post and immediately went into a bowl with ethyl alcohol because they're looking really bad and are very thickly covered with paint.

Furthermore, I can tick off one point on my to-do list: 2 two Guardsmen with Lasguns

To simplify matters I'll  add the snow on the bases when all the infantry is done

What's up next?

Well, my IG project draws to a close and I have only very little to do until the army's finished:

  • 10 Guardsmen with Meltaguns
  • 6 Guardsmen with Shotguns
  • 2 Guardsmen with Lasguns
  • 1 Medusa Siege Tank
  • 8 Battle Psyker
 The Guardsmen are already assembled and wait for their paint. The Medusa will be a commission work done by *cyberdippi*, a very talented scratchbuilder from Germany and I'm really looking forward to hold the tank in my hands and even more to paint it. It gonna be a re-build of Forge World's Armageddon Pattern Medusa with the enclosed cabin. The interior room will be trimmed with the Renegade Artillery Crew:

The Battle Psyker Squad willconsist of several Chaos Sorcerers from Games Workshop (click, click and click) and the two Apostate Preachers of Nurgle from Forge World.

I must take these beautiful models for my Battle Psykers, otherwise I wouldn't habe any fun with playing that unit. Previously, I used  my Penal Legionnaires and as they aren't that nicely painted I rarely played a Battle Psyker Squad - too bad, as it's the best Elites choice of the Codex IG in my opinion.

Chaos Terminators

I repainted these some weeks ago and magnetized their arms.

Mission Objectives

Every of my armies has its own mission objectives. Here are 5 for my Defenders of Vraks.

Kronos the Blood Drinker

Today I present you my latest built and painted model: my Straken-count as "Kronos the Blood Drinker"

After regarding Straken's profile and getting a thought-provoking impulse from Goatmörser, I decided to take a World Eater Champion for the count as. What would be more nearby than that in a renegade army with many soldiers dedicated to Khorne?

Warriors of Chaos and Chaos Knights

I startet to build my first Warhammer Fantasy army in August 2010 but I have so many things in my mind and work to be done on my 40k projects, I hardly have the time to paint further minis for the "Plague Host of Norsca".

Leman Russ Executioner

The Executioner is the first Leman Russ type I painted and I have another 4 Lemans on my painting table including 2 Battle Tanks, 1 Vanquisher and 1 Demolisher. But the Executioner is the most useful one of them and I usually play it in matches of 1650 pts. and more.

Normally I play my Veteran squads with Meltaguns and Shotguns. Here are the first 6 oft them:

I allowed myself this baby for the passed school leaving examination. I'm keen on testing it in the next Apocalypse match when it'll hopefully crush and destroy Xaphan's foes. ;-)

Overall View of my army

I think it's time to show you an overall view of the minis I've painted so far for my Defenders of Vraks:

Storm Trooper Squads

Storm Troopers - I just love them! Not only the miniatures, but their rules in the new Codex, too!
In the meantime I have 3 squads à 5 men finished and another 15 in a box, waiting to be painted.

Land Raider Crusaders

According to the fluff, the Black Templars have numerous Land Raider Crusaders. Well, I have only two, but that's sufficient in my opinion for most matches.

Tuesday, June 15, 2010


Back in the 4th edition these tanks really rocked when Heavy Bolters could be fired in addition to the Autocannon after having moved up to 6". But now they are just too expensive and I sometimes use them with the IA2 Update.

Trike Squadron

I don't really like bikes and trikes, but I needed them for a tournament. Didn't really succeed anyway.

Friday, June 11, 2010

Assault Squad

I loved to play these guys in the beginning but after a while I had no place for them in my army builds and I really hope I can play them again when the new Codex comes out.

Initiates and Neophytes

Every Crusade needs them and I already have a couple of them.
