The Praetorian D company 1st battalion 14th rifles.
In our club the interrest for Warhammer 40.000 have once more arisen. I mostly play chaos space marines, but as you may have guessed by now, I also have an imperial guard army. Enough tanks to make an armoured company, but these chaps are The Praetorian guard. A limited edition of guard that made its first apperance at Games day in 1996 (or 1997). They fought against the orks and it was set up like from the Zulu war at Rorkes drift. The british got beaten badly by the zulus, even though the zulus weaponry were only spears, shields and courage and the british were superior in guns. Or so they thought. Well look it up if you are interrested in knowing more on this. Rorkes drift
The teacups in their....glory....
The chimera (transport carrier) had 5 layers of paint!
Well....Time to bring the chaps forth from retirement! Into the dungeon of cobwebs, dust and doom and there they were. As I unpacked them my heart sank. 3 different paintjobs, paint chipped, not finished at all! Oh ye gods! The mold lines as well!!! So they needed a rinse and I started to make an army list. We would start with combat patrol, 400 points (usually games are at 1500 points) and limited access to what you can have. That took no time in making the list and it may be redone later.
Not to worry.....This blog will not loose the zombies! Just wanted to show what I do besides fighting zombies. I had hoped to do a battle report, but I have yet to play it. This weekend will see me having a go at it. My lovely girl have actually chosen a miniature to represent her as well! It has been ordered from Hasslefree games and is en route as we speak. FANTASTIC SERVICE! More on this as I get hold of the minis I ordered.
Oh and some extra good news! Well for me anyway. I finally found a truck that was affordable! In the progress of painting it right now and roughing it up. Plus...As I walked the dogs I noticed some toys to be thrown out. And this little car was amongst it. YOINK! This will fit perfectly in the streets of Gravesend.
Buildings are on their way. A truck from England is in the mail. AND....Seemingly a SWAT team will be joining me soon! When they arrive you can be sure to see a blogpost on them, how I got them from the generous hearts!
Both need a mention already here. If you do not know them by now, go have a look at their blogs.
And I better stop this blogpost now before it gets too long. A lot to do, a lot to be thankfull for, a lot to enjoy in the hobby.
