My Life

Here are a few pictures of my life and the things about it.

Sorry about the lack of contect related to 40k of late, but I have been painting up a storm for the commision I am working on.
Myself and my Car. Its a 1995 Monte Carlo built in Oshawa Ontario in June of 94. Its been very reliable and the ride is great. Its also for sale if anyone lives near Ottawa!
This is my Fiance Chantal. We met three years ago while working for a company called Teletech.
This is my Geosystem 80 tank, with Fluval 304 filter, Powerglow and lifeglow bulbs, plants are all live. Its hard to see but there is alot of bottom dwellers. I'm going to be "removing" alot of the plants that are seen on the back right this weekend.
The black cat is named Mavros and is a 2 year old male. The grey and white is a 5 year old female named Misty. The brown tabby is a female we took in for a few weeks to help her recover from URI. Her name is Myra.

Below is another picture with Misty teasing Mavros and Pinto. Pinto is a cat that we fostered for a few weeks while he recovered from URI.

Current IG Rumors

These rumers are as posted by "The Dude" On warseer

General info

Release date is 2 May 2009.

The new codex will be 104 pages long.

Pre-orders have already gone up on GW and other sites.

GW stores are now getting preview copies of the Codex.

Rumoured to include at least 2 waves of releases. It is unclear when the second wave will appear.


Army-wide Special Rules


Orders can be issued to any disembarked non-vehicle squad.
Company Commander can issue up to two Orders within 12".
Platoon Commander can issue one Order within 6".
Orders may not be issued whilst embarked unless vehicle has “Mobile Command Vehicle”.
Vox casters allow a re-roll of the Ld test

Orders given at start of the shooting phase. Company Commander places Orders first, then Platoon Commanders. Orders resolved immediately and count as the Squad’s shooting. Receiving unit must pass LD test with the following affects:

Double 1 - They follow the Order and can be given another
Pass – They follow the Order
Fail – They fail the Order, but can act as normal after other orders are resolved
Double 6 - They do nothing and no further Orders may be issued that Turn

Platoon Commander Orders:

“First rank fire, second rank” - + 1 shot for Lasguns only (so 3 at 12", 2 at 13-24)

"Incoming!" - Go To Ground with +1 cover save, i.e. +2 total and the unit can't shoot for that turn.

“Move, move, move!” – Roll 3D6 and take highest when Running.

Company Commander Orders (all of the Platoon Commander ones plus):

"Bring it down" - Twin Links all weapons shooting at tanks, MCs including units or squadrons of them.

"Target on my command" – Forces enemy unit targeted by the ordered squad to re-roll successful cover saves

"Get back in the fight!" - Allows a squad to instantly rally or get up from "Down!" This allows them to shoot & assault in that round as well.


Only Company and Platoon Command Squads and Veterans have access to heavy flamers.

Upcoming Release: Imperial Guard

May will be very exciting for myself and fellow Imperial Guard players. With a new codex army possibilities will be great and I hope to see more Guard players at my local game store. Below is some of the box art that we should expect to see.

As you can see we will be getting two new command box sets and a plastic Valkyrie. I know personally I will be purchasing one of each command squad being $25 CDN a set which will include alot of weapon options formally in metal only. The Valkyrie is an interesting option, but I may pass on it for awhile. I don't have any storm troopers at this time, and they would be the only squad I would have mounted in such a transport. The other reason is the cost, which is rumored to be $60 CDN. Since I will be purchasing a codex and 2 command sets this fabulous aircraft will have to wait!

Battle Report: 4 way mix up

Today's battle report will feature a battle between myself, Doug S, Darby C, and Greg H. The forces were 1250pts a person and we diced of teams. It was my Salamanders and Doug's Chaos Marines VS Darby's Eldar and Greg's Imperial Guard. Mission was 4 objectives with pitched battle deployment. The Marine team won first deploy. The game went pretty good but due to a time constraint Darby needed to head into work and we called a draw during the third turn!

Recent Acquisition: Wheeled AFV

This is an Imperial Guard scratch built that I received in a trade from Regimental (Warseer) / Kiltedfiend. I will be using it as a counts as Chimera for my command squad. I will be adding a co-axial heavy stubber and finding a way to add a heavy bolter without detracting from the overall look. Below are a few pictures of the vehicle. BTW - The hull is scratch built using plasticard and some of the parts come from various Games Workshop kits

Here are some pictures of the WIP Commission. Things are rolling along and should be on time for a May 1st delivery. I've also bought a Reaper Pure white paint and it coats much better which should really speed things along!

Painting Commission: Update 1

The scouts are 90% done and just need to be based. I am starting work on the marines tonight at work and I hope to get them done alot faster. The scouts I am working on have an urban style camo which is red, grey, white and black. They also have alot of grenades and other parts that normal marines don't have.

Project: Flakvierling 38

This 1:35 scale Flakvierling 38 is a side project that I started last night. This taymiya kit is of excellent quality as they always were. The only difficulties in assembling this kit was the rod that needed to be melted together with a flame to allow the mount to elevate. If I use this for 40k, I will use it as a sabre defence platform. Now, to find a guardsmen that will fit into the seat!
