    Just finished painting, here is Marshal Karis Venner, the military commander of the Death Korps of Krieg. 1,500 years before the 41st millenia, the Imperial world of Krieg rebelled against the Emperor of Mankind. A civil war erupted with those loyal to the Emperor against the rebels. The commander of the loyalists made the grim decision to use nuclear weapons to end the civil war. Krieg was reduced to a radioactive husk, with inhabitants living underground to escape the radioactivity. Krieg decided to pay their homage to the Emperor by providing troops, not just any troops, but battle-hardened, fanaticals who wear gas masks and ask the Emperor to be given the nastiest, most brutal planets and enemies to fight......

    @Jack_Forest Amazing! Love the Knight in the middle shelf there! You can see pix from my efforts and my sons as well on this thread. I absolutely love the Death Korps of Krieg - their look and lore. Also I bought an entire Deathwatch army from a friend of mine so I love the Deathwatch too.

    I was on a Warhammer 40K group on FB yesterday, the 40K fandom is wailing and moaning about the upcoming roll-out of a new rules set called "9th Edition". I have only been a 40K player for just about a year now , did not know how much consternation was created every time they update their rules, etc. One of the younger members of the group got very animated in his disgust, and my reply was epic: "Son, I am a Star Wars fan, you haven't experienced a fandom like that"

    Good luck! I couldn't even buy Indomitus! They had like 50 boxes for the entire Russia and it was sold out in like 5 seconds (I assume, because the official distributors' website went down for a couple of hours).

    Yes GW seriously underestimated the market for the Indomitus boxes!!! What do u think about the new rules? I like the limiting of over watch as my Death Riders rely on the charge!!! 1BDB1B2D-B4E1-4723-AFE2-C6571AF6175C.jpeg
