217: One Force pie plate support

One thing so far lacking for my fledgling One Force is any kind of heavy support or significant heavy firepower.  I do have my Rifleman Contemptor but as the sole source of anti-anything more than a marine, its definitely in need of some help.  What could be better than a lovely old Vindicator lobbing those S10 AP1 pie plates all over the battlefield.   I had left one of my old Space Wolves Rhinos part glued so that I could swap out the front plate and top hatch to a Vindicator, so decided to make the conversion complete.  You can see it as I was starting to block in some colours below.

You can see some experimental work on the scheme on the dozer blade.

216: One Force Squad II now with 10 men

Despite not having posted up much hobby recently, I've actually been achieving quite a lot.  We've taken it upon ourselves to slowly get up earlier (5 mins every week) and this means that I can get in 20 mins or half an hour of modelling/painting each morning and its showing results.

I've almost finished the second 5 men for "Squad II" for One Force.  You can see them below both with and without their jump packs

215: Blog Wars 5 - Game 3

Game 3, Emperor's Will, Dawn of War deployment

Robert Gorst:  Space Wolves

Logan with 5 wolf guard in Terminator Armour all in a Crusader
2 Rune Priests, one with Jaws and Lightning, the other with rulebook powers (Prescience I think)
Wolf Priest
2 units of 10 Grey Hunters
6 Long Fangs with missile launchers

We set up objectives opposite corners, mine in the bottom right, his in the top left from my point of view.  I was mostly castled around my own objective, with the Immortals out on the other flank somewhat as bait, he spread evenly across his side of the board, with Logan and co. in Land Raider opposite my objective, and the vindicator central.  I stole the initiative thanks to Imotekh, and first order of business was to get rid of the Vindicator, which I was able to do with a number of glances from Warriors in a Barge.

214: Blog Wars 5 - Game 2

Game 2, The scouring, Hammer and Anvil deployment
Daniel Lane:  Orks

Gazghul with 5 Nobs with all the trimmings in a Truck
10 Boys as standard in a Truck
Mekboy with KFF
2 units of 30 Boys
Looted-Wagon with Boomgun
2 units of 10 Lootas

Objectives were setup about as evenly as possible across the board, with 5 points in my deployment, 5 points around my opponents deployment, and 5 points in the middle.
Of course I couldn't steal the initiative against orks, and lost the roll to go first (only time in the weekend too), so was in trouble.  As expected, the two trucks were on my lines (despite deploying about as far back as I could) immediately.

Here they come...
