We will be having a game on June 17th.  The game will be at Phantom of the Attic in Pittsburgh on S. Craig street.

http://www.pota-oakland.com/games/

This will be a Warhammer 30K game.  We will be gaming a portion of the Battle of Istvaan III.  The Legions allied to the Warmaster attempted to purge the loyalist elements from within their ranks.  To accomplish this the suspected loyalists were sent down to the surface of Istvaan III to put down a rebellion against Imperial authority. 






While on the planet fighting against the insurgents the loyalists were betrayed.  Horus released the life eater virus into the atmosphere of the planet from his ship.  Due to the brave actions of several Astartes who were still aboard the fleet for various reasons word reached the troops on the ground of the betrayal.  Many perished but many were able to find shelter in the myriad underground catacombs of the Choral City, the capital of Istvaan III. 




After the Life Eater virus turned most living creatures on the planet to mush Horus used lance strikes from his ship to ignite the released methane in the atmosphere causing a global firestorm which inflicted further loss.



Once the fires died down there were still indications of life on the planet.  Sickened by the impersonal nature of the destruction so far Angron lead a wave of his World Eater legion to the surface of the plant to root out and destroy the survivors. 


His initial landing will be represented as he attacks the loyalist elements of his own legion as well as some Astartes from the Emperor's Children and the Sons of Horus who found shelter in the same place.


We will be starting around 1.    All the models, dice, rules and terrain will be provided.

More Emperor's Children.



Here is the first actual squad of Emperor's Children that I've finished to go along with their Primus Medicae.  It is a sort of rag-tag bunch of terminators armed with weapons from the fallen. 




They have a disproportionate amount of plasma and vulkite weapons to deal with enemy infantry in anticipated tunnel fighting.  It will probably come in handy in the close quarters of the ruined Choral city. 



They also have a variety of close combat upgrades including this guy with lightning claws.

If I ever expand this force into a whole army (I suppose that should be when) I will probably divide these guys among two squads, one more close combat dedicated. 

For now I think they give the appearance of an amalgamated squad that picked up what weapons they could find from the dead and are looking to sell their lives dearly.

Looks like you will have a fun game this weekend.   Are you photographing this unit on a background you bought or one you made?
