Deathstrikes and Bombard


Deathstrike Missile Battery

I have finished painting up one of the most hated formations in the Guard arsenal – Deathstrike missiles! Massive range, low profile and truly horrific damage to any titan they manage to hit (2 x TK(D6)) mean they are a very cheap formation that packs a massive punch. They are slightly less useful for me however, as I play against Eldar armies and thier titans seem to have an uncanny ability to dodge my deathstrikes.

I have also finished up a Bombard battery. This is a formation that seems universally panned by the internet, but really works for me. The short range isn’t too much of an issue for me as I tend to wait until my enemy comes close, and with the amount of cover I tend to put down on the table the Ignore Cover really comes into its own. They fit particularly well into the Baran Siegemasters list!

Another view of the Bombards. These are the old style E40k models so they have lots of the detail I have come to expect like excess baggage, strapped on ammo boxes, picks and shovels. Makes them very nice models, but a bit of a pain to paint.


Just as a heads up, I head down to London on the 10th June and then after that head off on the summer vacation until mid-September. I don’t usually take my models back home with me as they are difficult to transport and tend to distract me from the work I desperately need to do. Therefore, I imagine the regularity of blogging you may have come to expect will slacken, but I hope to keep it to at least once a week. I have been saving some pics for posts during the holidays but towards the end I will be blogging more about tactics and lists than things I have painted!
