For the Lion: Holding the Line

Hi all it's Neil here with a new post for my For The Lion series showing my latest unit of Intercessors and some pictures from my first game post codex supplement. These Intercessors help build up the core of my Dark Angels force. Intercessors form a good core able to shoot well, fight in melee and control objectives though they're not the best at any being generalists rather than specialists.

To Bring the Dawn: Recruiting the Core

 Hi all its Neil here with the units for my first month of our Age of Sigmar group project, the Lord Regent to lead my force and a unit of 10 Vanari Wardens to form the core of my Lumineth.  Here are these completed units.

Casting Off: Initial Engagement

Hi all it's Neil here with a new Casting off post for Victory at Sea.  Its been a while since my last post mostly due to a lack of releases for my Royal Navy and a shift in what I've been painting and playing but I did recently-ish get my first actual game in with fellow warlord Tom.  I'm not going to go into super detail about, rather I'll give my takes on how I felt the game played.

To Bring the Dawn: Taking the Coin Malleus

Hi all it's Neil here with a post about a new group project that we've just started here at The Cambridge Warlords.   This new project is kick started by the release of the new 3rd edition for Age of Sigmar (and by the returning ability to game).  It's a tale of four gamers style project so each month we'll be painting up 1-2 boxes/units of miniatures to build up an army and playing games of increasing scope as we paint along together.

Painting Guide: Neil's Lumineth Realmlords; Vanari Warden

 Hi all it's Neil here with a post that is going to link with an upcoming series.  I've decided to do a new Lumineth force for the imminent version 3 of Age of Sigmar and thought I'd document my painting steps mostly for myself but so that it's out there if anyone wants to copy (I'd be flattered if you did).  So here is the finished Vanari Warden to show the steps for this section of my Lumineth Realmlords force.

WW3: Team Yankee - Faction Focus: West German - Part 2: Support Units

Hi all it's Neil here with some more WW3 Team Yankee as there's been some NATO reinforcements with the release of the new West German book.  This is part 2 of my look at the new West German book where I'll be looking at the units that support your main combat units such as artillery, anti-air, tank destroyers and aircraft.  If you haven't seen part 1 going through the formations and their core units its probably worth checking it out first.  Hopefully this will be helpful to get to know the West German's support whether you're looking to use it or are going to be facing it down.

For The Lion: Armour Inbound

 Hi all it's Neil here with a new post for my For The Lion series where I'm showing my Gladiator tank to you.  The Gladiator is one of the latest vehicle releases for the space marines and is basically the Predator version of the Impulsor with a turret weapon and two sponsons.  The addition to my Dark Angels give me more anti-tank or anti-infantry options depending on which variant I use.

WW3: Team Yankee - Faction Focus: West German - Part 1: Formations

 Hi all it's Neil here with some more WW3 Team Yankee as there's been some NATO reinforcements with the release of the new West German book.  As in my previous factions focuses I'll start my looking at the formations in this post then part 2 will look at the units you can bring to support them.  I'm still a new player so I wouldn't be going into much in the way of competitiveness or list building in these but I am planning on doing some in the future after I get to play a bit more.  My hope is that these faction focuses will help new players like myself in picking a faction in the game to play as well as getting a bit of an overview of what you might be facing from the others too.  So lets get to it now and have a look at the West German formations.

Guardians of the Great Plan: Form the Battleline

Hi all its Neil here with another Guardians of the Great Plan post about my slowly expanding Seraphon project.  The latest addition to this force is my first battleline unit of Saurus Warriors armed with clubs and shields.  These are the first real unit for my Seraphon force but for their painting use all the colours from my first post in this series.

For the Lion: Interomancy Support

Hi all its Neil here with some more Dark Angels in my For the Lion series.  The latest editions to my Dark Angels force are a pair of Librarians to help interrogate those pesky Fallen once the Deathwing have captured them.  I've gone for a Terminator armour librarian and a Primaris one with Phobos armour giving me two quite different ways to use them on the table.
