One heck of a weekend...

As the post title suggests it has been one heck of a weekend. There have been lots of new purchases for the army, battles fought, models painted and photos taken. It's going to take at least a few posts over the coming week to fit everything in.

Before I start there are now gallery photos of the Highland Guard with proper lighting and background. There is also a new objective marker and the chimera to accompany the Veterans.

So where to begin...

This weekend I took part in a tournament at Triple Helix in Westbury, Wiltshire. It consisted of 4 battles, two of 1250pts and then an escalation to 1750pts for another two games. Units used in the 1250 had to be in the 1750 and could not be altered.

With the tournament in mind I got all of my Praetorians out of their cases and set about writing an army list. In doing so I just couldn't resist taking some photos of the whole army, so here you go. The finished elements of the Praetorian IV Mechanised Infantry.

The Inquisitorial Valkyrie attached to the army.


There you have it, the army as it stands this weekend. Also 12 explosion markers I use for my wrecked or damaged tanks.

I will post again in the next couple of days with details of what happened at the tournament and a bumper load of photos of the battles and other armies.

Any comments are very welcome!


  1. It was nice to see your army in the fleash. I do think you should have won best army but George's army is very nice in all fairness.

  2. Absolutely beautiful work. I laughed at the "Incoming!" pics! Good stuff, man!

  3. Wow awesome to see your army in its entirety, it looks fantastic! Whatever beat you to best Army must have been something special! I really like the picture with the markers, it really does look like they are under fire!

  4. I need to search your blog for more pics on that Command HQ. Looks like it's a lovely looking bunch with lots of character.

    The whole force looks great, really great. Those blast markers are also well done and did indeed add just enough to the view to really make your army pic pop!

  5. Great stuff, mate - looking forward to more!
