Unfortunately the past few weeks not only have I had very little time for hobbying but shortly after my last post my computer packed in... Now I have just about fixed it (still crippling slow and temperamental) but as there hasn't been any work to speak of on either the 4th or the new white scars this post will be the first of many Praetorian picture reels where I will show off pictures from previous battles and campaign weekends that I never got round to posting.
To kick us off here is some blue on blue with a Praetorian training exercise with Commissar Dave!
My army was a bare bones fit as much stuff in as you can list while Dave's was pretty tooled up and had a valkyrie full of vets and a thunderbolt waiting in the wings.
The leman russ takes aim at the tightly packed guardsmen.
The redcoats take defensive positions and hunker down.
The dash to the other side leaves one squad staring down the barrel of a chimera.
The hydra tracks the incoming thunderbolt.
And is promptly destroyed in short order... really what is the point if it doesn't have interceptor.
The 4th Mechanised take the fight to their brothers and advance on the objectives.
Volley fire is exchanged over the dry river bed.
No amount of aegis line will save the Dave's general from the withering las fire.
Colonel Winterborne declined to take part in the training exercise, Major Corbin led the troops and up on the elimination of his command section, with only himself and the Colonels trusty Rhodian Ridgeback remaining held one of the objectives.
The thunderbolt was proving a nightmare for the 4th mechanised as it continually straffed their lines.
Another objective is secured and with it victory to the valiant men of the Praetorian 4th Mechanised.
Stay tuned for some up close and personal pictures of the xenos filth and the heroics of a combined Praetorian arms exercise on Gaois Secondus!
