Praetorian Picture Reel 3

Greetings all and welcome to the third installment of the Praetorian Picture Reel!

In my next post I will be back to showing new finished models and updates on my hobbying (which is finally starting to pick up a little speed again, not the least bit assisted by spending a fair bit of money on reinforcements! More on those to come in the future)

This edition will see some photo of my army engaging various foes before then moving on to photos of my Praetorian's and Commissar Dave's on combined operations.

A really rather awkward deployment for Dave and I in our doubles game with diagonals over and also awkwardly sized 8x4 table.

At least we didn't have to deploy the 50 or so additional guardsmen in chimeras...

The cavalry undaunted by the roar of the engines weave in between the tanks.

As the deployment zone comes under heavy fire the mechanised detachment races forwards.

Scouts sneak up from behind to attack the Bombard.

The Banewolf bravely faces off against terminators.

Thanks for looking! More to come on some new additions to the army in the next post.

Praetorian Picture Reel - Tales from the front 2

A brief post today, here are a few photo I snapped on other tables at the Gaois Secondus Campaign weekend.

An awesome Krieg army fending off a vile mechanical dragon.

Commissar Dave's brave lads fending off the Chaos assault.

This last one is from one of my games. He was surrounded by about 20 warriors until a deathstrike landed on their heads...

Praetorian Picture Reel - Images from the front

Greetings everyone!

Unfortunately the past few weeks not only have I had very little time for hobbying but shortly after my last post my computer packed in... Now I have just about fixed it (still crippling slow and temperamental) but as there hasn't been any work to speak of on either the 4th or the new white scars this post will be the first of many Praetorian picture reels where I will show off pictures from previous battles and campaign weekends that I never got round to posting.

To kick us off here is some blue on blue with a Praetorian training exercise with Commissar Dave!

My army was a bare bones fit as much stuff in as you can list while Dave's was pretty tooled up and had a valkyrie full of vets and a thunderbolt waiting in the wings.

 photo IMG_4209_zps851bf5e7.jpg

The leman russ takes aim at the tightly packed guardsmen.

 photo IMG_4210_zps5806a2c0.jpg

The redcoats take defensive positions and hunker down.

 photo IMG_4211.jpg

The dash to the other side leaves one squad staring down the barrel of a chimera.

 photo IMG_4213_zps723fbcdf.jpg

The hydra tracks the incoming thunderbolt.

 photo IMG_4215-1_zps825d9e75.jpg

And is promptly destroyed in short order... really what is the point if it doesn't have interceptor.

 photo IMG_4217.jpg


 photo IMG_4218_zpsf461b753.jpg

The 4th Mechanised take the fight to their brothers and advance on the objectives.

 photo IMG_4222_zpsdac83e37.jpg

Volley fire is exchanged over the dry river bed.

 photo IMG_4226_zps623a85a0.jpg

No amount of aegis line will save the Dave's general from the withering las fire.

 photo IMG_4229_zps6fd191af.jpg

Colonel Winterborne declined to take part in the training exercise, Major Corbin led the troops and up on the elimination of his command section, with only himself and the Colonels trusty Rhodian Ridgeback remaining held one of the objectives.

 photo IMG_4230_zps72068195.jpg

The thunderbolt was proving a nightmare for the 4th mechanised as it continually straffed their lines.

 photo IMG_4232_zpsa1972f08.jpg

Another objective is secured and with it victory to the valiant men of the Praetorian 4th Mechanised.

Stay tuned for some up close and personal pictures of the xenos filth and the heroics of a combined Praetorian arms exercise on Gaois Secondus!
