After successfully retrieving the xeno tech for Labyrinth Navigations, the company had another urgent request. An informant in the underhive of Numarc Prime had gone dark, and was presumed hiding in a safe house. The team was needed to make their way through the dark alleys of the underhive to the safe house. If the contact was there, a bonus would be payed out for bringing him back.Read More Rogue trader chronicles 02 – underhive tourists
Gideon Lugenburg, 5th son of the “great” Baron Boreas Lugenburg, looked out at the planet far below. The planet of Numarc, an ice world. It looked like a hostile planet, it was nothing like the lush and green agri world Evish’s Paradise from which he hailed.
However, it was a perfect place for the enterprising gentleman to lay low and rebuild. Imperial rule was weak, and there would be plenty of opportunities to be made in the power vacuum. And it was also very unlikely that “they” would find him on a planet like this.Read More Rogue trader cronicles 01 – a fresh start
A bullet from a sniper suddenly blew through a boarded-up window, interrupting his train of though. He picked up the comms unit again and keyed in HQ.
“I repeat, we are under heavy attack and have many wounded!”
“Negative 176. Hold position. 32/1 is enroute to reinforce.”
“But the rebels control the road! We must break out to meet them!”
“176, you have your orders. District 14 will be held.”
After finishing up the riveting work on these guys, I just couldn’t help myself and had to paint them up. With rivets added, I think they fit into the 40k universe perfectly. The rugged, aggressive design making even a logistics truck look menacing. The riveting work is not perfect, and I spot some areas that […]Read More 40k logistics truck
Since my Vogen campaign for the time being is a low-intensity insurgency, I felt the need for adding some lighter vehicles to my PDF forces, so the renegades have something to ambush / capture in classic insurgency style. Looking for just a 40k truck has not been easy. I eventually found some vehicles that turned […]Read More WIP 40k Logistics / troop truck
The renegade forces on Vogen, lacking a proper supply chain, often used civilian equipment in combat roles. Many of these “technicals” were almost as dangerous for their occupants as to the imperial forces. One of the more successful types of technicals were the ones based on industrial walkers. Khai-zen class walkers, normally used in construction, […]Read More Renegade Industrial Walkers
After a year of very little gaming, the local group organised a Corona-friendly tournament with mandated masks. I jumped on the opportunity for some socialising. I have been trying to make a very infantry heavy Norscan army work, both in 2nd and 3rd edition, but the play-style of big blocks of slow infantry really doesn’t […]Read More Masks of War tourney report
While Grimdark future is a really cool ruleset that captures the 40k spirit. It is also an intentionally loose ruleset in some parts. Rules for stuff like cover saves and more are fairly basic, to the point that they actually force you to make some house rules. This post catalogues the house rules I have […]Read More Grimdark future house rules
The Hecstone massacre While Khai-Zhan is primarily an agricultural planet, the eastern wastelands are home to extensive mining operations, including the highly priced adamantium used in construction of terminator armor and tanks. These mines were an early target of renegade actions, with instigators working to bring the miner unions over to the renegades. Unfortunately for […]Read More PDF tunnel rats veteran squad
“The mon-keigh need to be eradicated. They have been excavating for days, it cannot be a coincidence, it is only a matter of time before they find the artifact and the burial grounds. We must immediately launch an attack and secure the artifact and the lost stones.”Read More Battle for Vogen 04 – Lost souls
