Lorin Beta

 In the yearly heresy game Rogal Dorn defends the planet Lorin Beta from the traitorous Thousand sons and their primarch Magnus. The mission was purge the alien from eternal war (kill points)
 In the first turn the traitors stood still but Dorn marched forwards
 Magnus got the dreaded power invisibility which he casted onto the termis
 Both devastator squads let fly with their missile launchers, killin the dreadnought
 The thousand sons moved to get their bolters into range, dropping  a few Imperial Fist huscarls 
 The loyalist termis and captain run for the board edge
 Next turn Dorn and tacticals aimed at the enemy infantry using fury of the legion
 When the dust settled only the praetor remained
 In the last turn the huscarls got closer to the praetor with a sprint but we rolled for game length and the battle ended there
The loyalists win 3-0. Dorn's Ld buff was useful against the telepathy powers
And of course...

Battle at sleepy valley

 Princeps Pentecost led the final liberation of Maerdan in an apocalyptic battle on the valleys of the western expanse, the last traitors were rounded up and exterminated, fleeing their sad remnants to the skies. With the planet held the war would go on for the loyalist cause.
 Metalica gets the initative and sneaks a titan offboard with the cargo ojective
 3 to 4 the loyalist concentrate fire
 A traitor titan moves twice
 The traitor objective is to recover some lost crew (pink marker)
 Finally the traitor loses all her shields
 A Mortis engine recover the crew

 Imperius Quintus damages badly the enemy leg
 Two Metalicas move to engage the rescuer 

Quintus strikes
 As the Mortis flee his comrades come to her aid
 A brawl erupts around the plasma generator
 But concentrated fire blews up the Mortis's torso that turns to fire in her death throes

  Quintus breaks the titan's leg with her massive fist
 Now in numerical inferiotiry the traitors try to recover the crew, but time has run out

Unable to extract the lost princeps the traitors concede
The planet is safely in Imperial hands

GK rebasing & scars

 I've made some of my signature cork&volcanic sand bases for these old grey knights. They were some of the first 40k minis I painted (my eyes!), instead of repainting them I just added some highlights, did the shields and the parchements. The bases were god awful so they were in need of a full remake; that way they also fit with the rest of my marine/custodes collection.
 Funnily enough these are some (the only?) of the models that costed more back in the day (50eur) than nowadays (35). Since GW separated all the inquisitoriall sutff from GK in order to sell twice the codexs and earn twice the money I'm thinking into getting a box of the newer plastics to get a more rounded up army (and some nice ingame benefits).

 Don't look into their eyes...

 Muh mystical doddle

 I've also done these white scars bikes that had been lying in the ole pile o' shame for several years

Chadstodes are better anyway
