We are going on Crusade..

Warhammer 40,000 and the Indomitus Crusade.

For Warhammer 9th Edition I am working on a Blood Angels army, which is building upon a hobby project I had over the Coronavirus lockdown where I painted a group of Blood Angel veterans for the game Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team. Here is a gallery of images for the Kill Team.

I’ve been building upon this with the release of the 9th edition rules of Warhammer 40,000. Along with a number of friends we had already been at work running an escalation league – where you start at low points forces and build upon it as the league progresses. The Coronavirus pandemic brought an end to those plans. However the Crusade campaign rules for the new edition of 40k has given us an opportunity to run an escalation campaign in the new rule set.

My initial force is based upon the models that came in the new set with some additional units of my own models added in. I’m really looking forward to trying these out in a few games over the coming months.

I should add that the other aspects of the hobby – planning, collecting, assembling and painting – have really been great for me to give me a creative outlet and spend an evening painting. Its very relaxing and is a great way to spend time where you are away from screens and able to focus your mind on a task.

Keeping me sane in lockdown

It’s been rewarding getting my models painted up and really diving into the hobby, from videos and discussions on tactics through to battle reports and painting tutorials, I’ve really enjoyed the time I’ve put in so far. Having completed the first group of models I wanted to do, I’m ready to get those on the table. Meanwhile work continues on the second group of miniatures as the force is set to benefit from reinforcements!
