I’m a miniature man through-and-through. Card games abstract too much; I’m here to experience a story of fighting men and women doing heroic stuff. With cards, it’s just a game, unless you go to great lengths to read a story in what’s happening on the table. Then why am I playing The Horus Heresy: Legions?

I bought the Burning of Prospero box back when it was released and finished painting a 1000 point Loyalist Death Guard army ready last June. There was a small issue: no opponents to play with! But I have a friend who collected Forge World Custodians. With the hopes of playing the game some day, I bought the Age of Darkness rulebook when it came out. With it came the Forge World Catalogue 2018. It held some surprises.
You already know that I have a Goliath gang for the new Necromunda Underhive game. I didn’t stop there, though: I bought the entire Necromunda starter box with no intentions of splitting. So naturally, I had to build and paint an Escher gang, too. Here are the Blacklights.
Necromunda Underhive is a fun game! But even before I had the chance to try it, I had spent some time reading the books from the old game. That happened years before any new game was on the horizon. So when the new edition came out, I bought the starter immediately. I got to painting both gangs. And I finally bothered to take pictures of my entire Necromunda Goliath gang!
Hatred is, after all, the Emperor’s greatest gift for humanity. And ya’ll kids know that unca JcDent has enough bile, vitriol and foul temper for two racist uncles. I had previously written my wishlist/hatelist for the upcoming Codex: Astra Militarum. That book has since been released, so here I am on the road again, bitching about the new Imperial Guard codex. Codex: Astra Militarum fixed a few problems from the Index, but not all. It introduced a few more. Here they are.
Age of Darkness is what Forge World calls their 40K spin-off set in Horus Heresy. Naturally, everyone just calls it Horus Heresy. 8th edition dropped last year and Age of Darkness found itself without a rulebook. After all, the game was using modified 7e rules. This forced Forge World to release its own standalone rulebook. However, Alan Bligh, the lead writer for the project passed away from cancer a few months before 8e, and it was a real scramble to get it published. Took them half a year, but now we have a book. And here is my copy of Age of Darkness rulebook!
If you want to know more about what I think about the Horus Heresy ruleset, I have written an article about it!
Last year, I bough Repulsor, the aptly named flying Primaris Landraider mostly to build it the way I want it, to make it less ugly. This mostly involved totally replacing the God-awful turret with something else. And I mostly succeeded! I did all the painting in one month, as per rules of Something Awful Oath thread. I was aiming to hit all of the monthly challenges it presents, so details are to follow. It took that many pictures simply because I could get more points that way for Show Your Work challenge.
