One of the best parts of the wargames hobby, and in particularly Warhammer 40,000 is the undertaking of new projects and the acquisition of new armies to field during games.

Recently I have had the privilege to establish a new wargaming group consisting of fellow soldiers, sailors and airmen from the UK's Armed Forces and we have been enjoying monthly meets to engage in various small scale battles across the tabletop.

One of my best friends within this group is a Royal Navy officer and for years he has endured watching his hordes of guardsman being mowed down by my Space Marines in battle-after-battle.

Needless to say then that I was quite surprised during our latest meeting when he did not produce his usual mass platoons of infantry from his carry case. Instead some rather lovely shiny silver Terminator-clad warriors appeared on the table instead....I was saddened to learn that he had replaced his ill-fated guardsmen with a compact force of Grey Knights, including two Dread Knights!!

My shock then turned to horror as his force shredded my poor Crimson Fists Space Marines in but a few turns.

Obviously at the time I smiled and took it gracefully whilst secretly crying inside... however when I got home I knew I had to do something in order to re-balance the equilibrium of things and so I re-started a project that I had begun some years earlier... My trio of House Taranis Imperial Knights:







When I got these giant miniatures out the box I realised that I had only previously managed to get as far as spraying the exo-skeletons silver and so I literally locked myself in my room for three hours every night after work in order to finish these beasts off!

There is literally nothing like a stinging defeat in a game of 40k to spark off a ridiculous arms race!

We have our next game scheduled for this Saturday and I am looking forward to teaching my good buddy that the only thing better than a Grey Knight is a big Red Knight!!

I have included a few more pictures on my blog at:
