Adeptus mechanicus Titan Warhounds and Blackstone Fortress complete!

I just finished the last models from the Blackstone Fortress WH40k Quest game, and decided to try it out solo to see how it plays. 10h later... I'm really enjoying it - despite the fact that I lost my first adventurer on only the second challenge of the game. My team leader Janis Drake failed to leap across a chasm and died outright (rolled a '1' on the Blackstone dice!). I almost decided to reboot and chalk it up to beginners bad luck - but then figured I should just go for it. Now I am on our 3rd expedition on the way to take out our first Stronghold feeling good about it. We'll see...

Here are the models - 4 negavolt cultists

 2 rogue psykers

 Chaos beastmen

 Obsidius Mallex and a couple of Chaos Space Marines (scary dudes...)

 Pious Vorne and Amallyn Shadowguide - I am using both of these in my campaign.

 And I also finished two more Adeptus Titanicus 6mm Titan Warhound Scouts - Vespula Ignis (Fire Wasp - so named for it's inferno gun) and Vespula Perforo (Piercing Wasp - so named for it's plasma gun). Can't wait to play this game - the Warlord is the next addition.


  1. The Blackstone Fortress figures look fantastic! I had a good laugh when I read that Drake died on the first expedition - he seems like a bit of a pompous ass (at least in the novel). So who has taken over leadership of your expedition?

    The titans are looking pretty good too! I already have a bunch of epic stuff, so there's no way I'm buying into the new Adeptus Titanicus... The good thing about it being released, is that others have bought into the new game and have been dumping their old stuff on eBay - so I've been able to pick up a few more titans at not-totally-unreasonable prices! Something I'll have to get to work on later this year... after I get my Rogue Trader and Blackstone Fortress figures done!

    My big hope is that they reboot/rerelease Battlefleet Gothic soon!! I would totally get into that!

  2. Oh no - not BFG too - I bought, painted and sold one collection of that stuff already!!

    Yeah Janis bit it hard very early on - I agree with your take on him also having read the book. A suitable end!

    I've developed a soft spot for Aspern Locarno as my leader, he looks underwhelming stat-wise until you realize all the invaluable supporting things he can do.
