I Have Never Done This Before - to the best of my knowledge!

While the title of this post could refer to almost anything - from avoiding Groundhog Day to parachuting etc what it actually refers to is a look back at the posts on this blog over the past year. The blog has been going now for 6 years. When and if it reaches 10 years that timemark, as opposed to landmark, could be a sign for an overall summary. Anyway back to this year and in no particular order the ground covered has included:

ebook codices for the Adepta Sororitas and the Inquisition

Hobby injuries

Seraphim basing

Battle Reports

Inquisition Warbands

Armageddon Medusa

Saint Celestine

Greater Daemon of Khorne

White Dwarf

Ecclesiarchy Battle Conclaves


Inquisition Warbands

Armageddon Steel Legion

Here are some of my favourite pictures from the year with an all time favourite included. Can you spot the all time favourite?

Steel Legion Medusa Progress

Finally some progress. Life gets in the way of hobby time. So does work. What else gets in the way of 40k?

Still a bit of a way to go with the Forgeworld Medusa but the final shape of the mini is now clear at least to me. Hopefully it will still be playable when the revised Imperial Guard Codex comes out next year.

Inquisition Warband Build Flavours

The new digital Inquisition codex has been greeted with both acclaim and criticism. One thing is clear and that is few Imperial Forces will deploy without an Inquisitor and warband as additional allies. In addition the codex creates the possibility of all Inquisition armies with a primary inquisitorial detachment allied to another Inquisitoral detachment. Two Inquisitors pursuing different strands of investigation coming to the same conclusion. Given the firepower associated with the dedicated transports in the codex plus orbital strikes and psykic choirs, potentially seriously tough forces might be created. 

Some of the favourite minis here are Inquisitorial or Ecclesiarchial. So here is what might be constructed locally from some of the potential Inquisition minis on the shelves.

A small Inquisition Warband using Karamazov :

2x multimeltas, one plasma cannon and one acolyte with meltagun. Just needs a Jokaero to tweak the weapons. Karamazov has the relentless special rule and the
by any means necessary rule.

Or a small warband based on a generic Malleus Inquisitor :

3 servitors, one acolyte and a priest with a generic Malleus Inquisitor tooled up with power sword or force weapon, grimoir of true names, brain mines, power armour, and psyker level 1 with hammerhand - total 88 points for the Inquisitor and 59 for the warband if my arithmetic is correct, should be an ouch in close combat.
