I'm a long term fan of your site, having taken many an idea for my Templar lists from your blog, so I figured you might appreciate the attached photo's. What with 6th ed bringing back the want/need for Chaplains, I thought i'd do something a little mental with one just for shits and gigs. Did someone say dual Thunder Hammers? Yes. Yes, they did. Meet Enceladus, a Master of Sanctity capable of bringing close combat pain of biblical proportions.
My local Games Workshop store recently had a competition to purchase and field a single HQ choice in a deathmatch style tournament. It couldn't be a named character with all kinds of ridiculous fluff and special rules, it had to simply be an HQ choice that abided by the rules of it's codex. Twelve people entered the battle... Enceladus left victorious, having wiped out 7 of the 11 combatants himself and having lost just a single wound. He's so far only had the pleasure of playing (and winning) one 6th ed game at 1500pts. It took my opponent a squad of 10 Striking Scorpions, a squad of 10 Dire Avengers, a small squad of snipers, 5 Warp Spiders, 2 Prism Tanks and the Avatar of Kaine to bring him and his 7-man Terminator Assault Squad to its knees. They went down in a blaze of glory, hopping out of their LRC, charging into the Dire Avengers and wiping them out.
Enceladus picked up a wound from incoming fire, but the rest of the squad made their armour saves or invulns. His Scorpions charged me and promptly died without inflicting a single wound. I tossed a Holy Orb of Antioch at his Warp Spiders and wiped them all out. His Prism Tanks nailed 5 of my terminators before Enceladus popped them both like grapes. Sadly the Avatar then charged, issued a challenge and removed Enceladus' final wound, but it was all too late for the Eldar force, who had been all but crippled by one single resilient unit of assault Termies. My other squad of 8 Termies dropped the Avatar with with Assault Cannon fire and my LRC Multi-Melta'd the remaining Prism Tank. Surrender soon followed.
I hope you enjoy the attached images, and long may your blogging continue!
Very nice conversion work here! I love the Terminator Armor Chaplain model, and will be making a similar set of conversions myself here shortly. Looking as sexy as he does, surely the Emperor smiled on Enceladus as he pulverized his enemies. ;)
Its a very nice paint job as well! Very crisp and realistic. I'm sure that Marshal Wilhelm will be happy to see he's not the only one using Space Wolf parts. Haha. I hope that he continues to provide you with a lot of kills in your battles! Keep up the great work! :D
