Astra Militarum

Following their skirmish with Ultramarines where (sub)Commander Bolshoy Bartlett was attacked and possibly killed (the body had been removed the Astartes), Commander Farg Woolstrop was surprised to receive orders to bolster Ultramarine forces that had become bogged down fighting rebels that had declared the entirety of Hemmerdale's second largest continent - Brearley - Imperium free. As had recently occurred several times in the recent past Woolstrop was half expecting the Ultramarines to immediately open fire as soon as they came within bolter range. But as was so often the case with the...
An Ultramarines battle report. Victory against Blood Angels on the fields of Brimstone Games on Oct 11, 2017.

Was a super fun game. He ended up grabbing first turn but didn't bring on all this jump packs units. Let me pick off what was on the board each turn without being over saturated. At one point we were like 6-6 or 6-5 him...I ended up 13-6. I'll post my list up in the next day or two... I changed...

An Ultramarines battle report. Victory against Astra Militarum on the fields of Lansing MI on Oct 08, 2017.

Best battle but against the worst opponent of the tournament. His list consisted of 4 earthshackers 3 wyverns 3 bassalisks and 3 squads of conscripts (also 3 tanks that had 4 single shot rockets that were 4d6 shots - i forget the name) he also had 2 groups of scions and a character in deep...

A Grey Knights battle report. Victory against Astra Militarum on the fields of Brimstone Games on Sep 20, 2017.

My buddy wanted to play a small game of 1000 points so I figured I'd try out some of my new space wolf stuff alongside my grey knights. It was a very one sided game but only because my buddy had the absolute worst luck on his turn 1, he hit my dreadknight with every lass cannon/missile launcher/...

Commander Woolstrop had for a while now been concerned about (sub)commander Bolshoy Bartlet. Nothing he could specifically put his finger on, but an oddness in his mannerisms. This 'oddness' had gotten worse since the Sisters Of Battle attacks some weeks ago, almost as if their attacks had targeted him and his resulting survival had triggered a mental metamorphosis. Woolstrop had decided that after this patrol duty Bartlet would be sent to HQ for full mental, biological and chemical screening to get to the bottom of the strange behavior. But first, orders came in to meet a force of...
I often start writing this type of article and think “this isn’t worth it, everyone will know this”. In fact that happens a lot when I write any 40K Tactics or 40K List articles. But there is always someone out there that won’t of thought of this. 40K is seeing an influx of new blood and old blood coming back. Which is great! (I base that thought on the number of new people joining Twitter and Reddit as hobbyists.) So here goes, 12 Command Points in a 1,000 point Astra Militarum list. Another reason for doing this now is that […] The post...
An Unstoppable Painting Juggernaut! My current painting campaign is continuing well. Despite recent debacles I'm still painting Astra Militarum. I'm really enjoying painting up my old lead models. they have plenty of character, and as they were bought quite a while ago, I'm being pretty economic with my cash. So without any more waxing lyrical about possible lead poisoning and licking the tips of paint brushes, here's some prose and pictures; Men Carrying Things First up are two demolition charge holders and a member of a lascannon (I think) weapon team. It seems carrying said demo charges...
