Necron Destroyers for the Massacre at Sanctuary 101

So with my Sisters of Battle getting some much needed reinforcements last week I decided that it was time to provide the ancient forces of the Necrontyr with some heavy support in preparation for my refight of 1997’s ‘Massacre at Sanctuary 101’.

Redemptor Kyrinov... Old School Sisters of Battle Priest

After having spent a few weeks of focussing on expanding my Necron Force for the looming refight of the ‘Battle at Sanctuary 101’ I felt it was time for me to spend some time on the other faction in this scenario... namely... The Sisters of Battle of the Imperial Ecclesiarchy.

My mission to recreate the old ‘Battle at Sanctuary 101’ from 1997’s White Dwarf continues apace and this week I have finished yet another Cryptek to Command my Necron aggressors in this scenario.

40k Battle Report - Crimson Fists and Battle Sisters vs Grey Knights

I finally managed to get a game of 40k in this weekend, and so I used it as an opportunity to try out my growing Adepta Sororitas Force prior to the refight of Sanctuary 101 that I have planned for later in the year.

Orikan The Diviner... Necron Special Character

Having spent the last few weeks focusing on expanding my Battle Sisters for the refight of the Battle at Sanctuary 101 I decided it was time to go back and work on my Necrons. 

This time around I focussed on my first named special character for this faction... Orikan the Diviner l, who is basically a Cryptek on Steroids.

Sisters of Battle Celestians


More fighters for my impending recreation of the 1997 ‘Battle at Sanctuary 101’ have been painted this week. 

This time around we have a veteran sister superior and a celestian for my ever expanding Sisters of Battle Force.

Sisters of Battle Imagifiers

So I’ve painted up a few more Sisters of Battle Imagifiers this week in order to further bolster my steadily growing Adepta Sororitas forces who will be accompanying their sisters in a refight of the ‘Battle at Sanctuary 101’.

Necron Cryptek - Sanctuary 101


Given that the force of Necrontyr that attacked the facility at Sanctuary 101 was so big that it managed to completely obliterate the Sisters of Battle convent on the planet it makes sense that it was probably well led and efficiently organised.

Therefore this week I have spent some time filling out one of the mandatory HQ slots for my growing Necron Force.

Classic Sisters of Battle Imagifiers

So my plans to recreate the Battle at Sanctuary 101 continue at a pace! 

This week I decided bolster my Sororitas by painting up a couple of classic Sisters of Battle Imagifiers/Signifiers/Standard Bearers.

Urban Scenery for the Battle at Sanctuary 101!

Following on from my last few posts I’ve decided that I will be responding to Suber’s encouragement and definitely refighting the classic Battle at Sanctuary 101 between the Sisters of Battle and the Necrons.

Having thought about this I’ve also made the decision that I want to revamp my scenery/terrain in order to ensure that the battlefield looks suitably impressive for  a refight of this legendary skirmish. 


Whilst perusing a well-known online auction site I recently managed to find this piece of the original ‘Citadel Urban Terrain set’ that was launched alongside the first Codex: Cityfight back in 2001 in new condition.

Necron Reinforcements... More Immortals!

So after my post last week (and Suber’s subsequent encouragement) I have decided that I will definitely be expanding both my Necron and Adepta Sororitas force’s so that I can refight the classic ‘Battle at Sanctuary 101’. This was the first encounter between the Imperium and the Necrons, and it originally started out as a second edition 40k battle report way back in 1997.

Adepta Sororitas... New Sisters of Battle Dominion Squad

This week I decided to put in some work on one of my armies that I played with recently but haven’t actually added any troops to for about five years... namely my Sisters of Battle of the fanatical Adepta Sororitas.

Having used the new Beta Codex that appeared in Chapter Approved last month I identified that this Force now has access to a couple of strategems and acts of faith that potentially make Storm Bolters into pretty solid death dealers.

New Necron Immortals

I am pleased to say that my first models of 2019 are finally done.... phew... and I actually managed to do a whole squad before the end of January!



Having successfully completed a total of sixty Necron Warriors last year I decided to go for a slightly heavier troops choice this time around in the form of a squad of Necron Immortals.

2018 Miniatures Review - A Complete Round Up

Last week I did a post reviewing all of the 40k scale Space Marines that I painted throughout 2018; so this time around I will look at all the other bits that I churned out over the course of the last year...

2018 Review: Space Marine Models Completed!

So 2018 has finally ended and we are now in the New Year. But before we move on completely the time has come for me to conduct a review into my wargaming activity for the year that was.

So for this first post let’s have a look at the noble brothers of the Space Marines that I’ve painted over the previous 12 months....
