Through the vagaries of the warp, Patrick returned from the Tournament Crusade, along with a pack of Luna Wolves, displaced across millenia with a variety of equipment. I used my Sons of Taurus, with some partially completed infantry (pictured here infiltrating) while Patrick brought a tame largely MSU Space Wolves force, six 5 man grey hunters in pods, one five man in a rhino, three speeders with assault cannon/heavy bolter, some wolf scouts with sniper rifles and a skyclaw pack with wolf lord. 1500pts, and we played the Altar of War/Angels of Death mission "Willing Sacrifice", which has three objectives and some different deployment requirements.

So, I'm actually making progress on my Sons of Taurus and have put a little more paint on the Vindicator. The question became, "what to put on the dozer blade?"
Leave it largely as is? (...probably not)
Weather it heavily?
Fill the main area in black + weather?
Add a big skull or something?
Paint a bull head symbol on it?
Hazard stripes (don't think they would look good)
It would need to be fairly simple; I am not up for an intricate mural of demonic bulls trampling on people. As cool as that would be. Any suggestions?
I also have a lot of the basic colors down on the marines. Weapons/pads/packs and washes/touchups/basing to go!

I played a league game with my Sons of Taurus Chaos Marines against Peter's Dark Angels, Relic/Vanguard Strike, 1500pts. Peter brought Lion's Blade Task Force with full battle company for free pods and razorbacks and a Ravenwing Strike Force. A bunch of 5-man tactical, assault and devastator squads, chaplain, company master, and for the Ravenwing a librarian on bike, an attack bike and a Dark Talon. All the Rhinos pictured are Razorbacks with TL heavy bolters. One of their command benefits is overwatch at full ballistic skill, which could be painful for an army largely built for assault.

Here's the rough draft for our next campaign, "The Shards of Anaris". Things may change for the final draft depending on feedback.
Basic concept is to be able to be inclusive, with anyone playing anything and some being erratic attendees, while still being able to have an overall story.
Feel free to use/modify for your own groups and purposes. If you do, let me know how it goes!

I picked up the Angels of Death supplement today, and Leonard and I used some parts of it for our battle with my Sons of Taurus Chaos Marines against his Imperial Fists.
Our league is at 1500pts now. I added 20 marines tricked out with extra close combat weapons, two meltaguns, Mark of Hashut Enraged (aka Khorne), icon of wrath and powerfist champion, as well as a vindicator.
Leonard's Imperial Fists are largely built out of the Betrayal at Calth box, and he has been using the Contemptor dreadnought as an Ironclad. We decided to use the handy rules for Contemptors (really GW? No drop pod or heavy flamer options?) to swap the Ironclad for a Contemptor, and rolled up one of the Altar of War missions, Emperor's Fist.

For my friend Nathan who recently passed away, I'm ebaying his miniatures to raise some money for his family. Space Wolves, including some old figures like the Rogue Trader bikers above, other Space Marines, and lots of 3rd ed Dark Eldar. If you might be interested, check them out HERE

Last weekend two players new to our store, Anne-Marie and James brought their Imperial forces in and we arranged a quick rumble with my own Sons of Taurus and returning player John's Nurgle Chaos Space Marines. All their armies looked great, and I was especially impressed with the Dark Angels motor pool (not pictured, hopefully in the future).

I had a nice email from reader Catachan Commissar with some pictures of his kitbashed guard and other things I had asked him about back in the comments on my kitbashing post a while back, and graciously agreed to let me post them so all of you can see them too. You may be able to see more on Twitter under #warmongers.
Above are rough riders on bikes, an idea he was inspired to do by Mordian 7th. Ramshackle Games bikes plus parts from Victoria Lamb.
