Shapeways Breacher Shield test

So I ordered some boarding shields from Pop Goes the Monkey. The detail is great but the mounting is difficult without the shoulder pauldron interfering. But after trial and error I came to this solution:

Cut the wrist mount at an angle.

Conquest Campaign Draft v0.3

Conquest Campaign Draft v0.3


Battles in the Age of Darkness Rules and Force Chart.

In the case that someone uses a 40k codex, they may gain the rules/bonuses for their faction specific strike force or “decurion”-style detachment to use as a substitute Rite of War; while still using the FOC from the Age of Darkness expansion.

4-6 Reserve Points for a total of 8-12 games.

One Custom Campaign Character per player. The first free advancement roll upon creation may be chosen. Alternatively, instead of advancing throughout the campaign roll 6d6: The first two d6 are for characteristics, the third is for an advancement table, and the last 3(rerolling duplicates) are on an applicable warlord table where you then choose form the three results. The restriction for Unique characters being required to be Campaign Characters in order to be taken is not in effect. For Maximum Characteristics, 40k factions use whichever stat-line is most similar to their factions(IE Imperial Guard use Solar Auxilia).

Loyalist vs Traitors. Teams do not have to be even. Defenders to not automatically gain the related Strategic Trait as they have only just arrived in time to mass a defense or ambush.

One relic per player.

Optional Rules:
  • When attacking a strategic point on the planet's surface when the attacker controls a spaceport, the attackers may elect to fight a Planet Strike mission instead of the normal mission type.
  • Any mission may be substituted with a core AoD mission

End-game: Once both sides reserve points are expended then there is one final Apocalypse battle. In the case of a draw this is the deciding factor.

Notes: Certain Campaign Level Warlord Traits can modify/add to things like Warzone Traits and other options.
When attacking along a red line from a friendly controlled Strategic Point, attackers gain +1 to determine who gets first turn/deploys first.

Vigilator/ Moritat

Just waiting on the Dark Fury jump packs coming in the mail.

Going to be my Vigilator in modified MKVI Advanced Recon Armor(recon armor) to give my Dark Furies Scout, Stealth, and Move Through Cover on top of their Infiltrate and Shrouded from the Recon Company RoW.

I'm fluffing this venerable beakies RT era armor as modified MKVI that has less plating(4+) to allow more advanced environmental sensor suites that networks with his units power armor computers(Move Through Cover).

He could also make for a great Moritat...
