Season of the Witch

a decidedly unsanctioned psyker

The Hexorcist
4 3 4 1 3 1 3 1 8

Beyond the reach of Imperial authority, bathed in the light of strange stars, psychic phenomena and the unfortunate souls who manifest them are unchecked. The fringe worlds are a haven for unsanctioned psykers, and Chalcydon is no different. In fact, Chalcydon is a veritable nest of these rogue sorcerers. The individual known as The Hexorcist is powerful warp conduit, but maintains a tenuous grasp indeed upon the powers of the Immaterium...

Wargear: None

Empyrean Armor: The Hexorcist has a 5+ invulnerable save. This is increased to 4+ if The Hexorcist did not attempt to fire a Warp Bolt during the previous turn.

Warp Bolt: In the shooting phase, The Hexorcist can attempt to unleash a Warp Bolt. To do so, it must first pass a Leadership test. If the test is passed, resolve the attack as if The Hexorcist were firing a plasma gun (p.63). You may choose either profile, but if you choose the maximum power setting and the weapon explores, The Hexorcist instead suffers a wound with no saving throws of any kind allowed. Ignore all ammo rolls for this weapon.

If the test is failed, it cannot unleash a Warp Bolt this turn. However, if you roll a double 6 for this test, The Hexorcist also suffers a wound with no saving throws of any kind allowed.

Warp Lure: The entities of the warp notice this psyker.

B.E.A.S.T. Mode

Let's take a look at the first Hired gun for War of the Rats, our Shadow War: Armageddon league:

Bionically Enhanced Assault Servitor, Tactical

Hired Guns may be added to any Kill Team's roster following the rules for Special Operatives. A Hired Gun may be employed by any Kill Team, regardless of faction (life is cheap on the galactic frontier, and alliances shift frequently!).

5 5 1 4 3 1 5 2 8

The B.E.A.S.T. was designed to track and subdue quarry in dense terrain. A horrifying fusion of man and machine, this assault servitor is surprisingly agile and has been outfitted with a full compliment of scanning technology to allow it to track its prey. It is relatively easy for a Kill Team to hijack the unit's controls, setting this unrelenting stalker on their foes.

Wargear: The B.E.A.S.T. is armed with two lightning claws.

Unrelenting Stalker: B.E.A.S.T. has the Evade and Infiltration stealth skills.

Instragrammatic Wards

While recording another episode of the Crew Shaken podcast last night, Tim and I chatted about the benefits of using an Instagram account to connect with the community. While I thought it over, my buddy Ian started an Instagram account for his comic collecting hobby. Taking this as a sign from the dark gods, I decided it's high time for headwound minis to join the 'gram —

Crew Shaken

I recently had the opportunity to make a guest appearance on my buddy Tim's 40k podcast, Crew Shaken. I had a blast! Make sure you go check it out – Tim is an absolute professional (literally). Thanks for having me!

For those who did listen in on Episode 2, here's a little preview of the model I talk about in the opening segment.

Where there's a WIP there's a way

Now usually I don't do this but, uh, go ahead and break 'em off with a little preview of the remix:

it's payback time

coming out of my shell

bonus: free hugs!

 I'm having a lot of fun with this one. This has been a very experimental project from me and I've picked up some new skills. It should also go a long way toward "modernizing" my miniatures collection so I can hang at competitive events. Next step: continue to restructure my army by completing units to field formations from Traitor's hate!

My Armor is Contempt

I lost track of the link, but my Contemptor made it into the official NOVA photostream. So that's what it's like to stare down the barrel of a Butcher Cannon, if you were wondering.
