During my latest list build, I came across a curious relationship between two of the new doctrines – Slum Fighters and Lord’s Approval – and the Catachan. I thought it worth sharing briefly.
Today I got my three Forgeworld Heavy Mortars completed for my Catachan force. These little guys were a joy to build and paint. I say build, there are about four parts to them including two wheels.
In this battle report, it is Astra Militarum vs Orks for my first ever game against Orks in 8th Edition. The game was at Boards and Swords in Derby. I have taken four different regiments in this game – it should be quite a spectacle! This was against Ed’s Orks, Ed runs Wargames Tournaments which sells laser cut MDF terrain.
Today we take on the Death Guard at Boards and Swords using a new style of list, Catachan and Raven Guard.
I have some Catachan reinforcements and these will be the last for a while.
I started writing this article and Astra Militarum & Raven Guard list in mid-October before I even have a game in the calendar to use this list. So whatever game I play next, it’ll be with this list, which I’ve named The Hammer and Scalpel.
