Friday May 17th Ex Libris Mortis hosted our second Guest Speaker in our 
Blood Angels Tactics Forum
I'm pleased to announce our second Guest Speaker for the Blood Angels Tactical Forum of Ex Libris Mortis! Our Guest Speaker is a long time veteran of the Ultramarines, and has written an in depth article about the interplay between Blood Angels and Ultramarines on the battlefield! He address how the Ultramarines fight against us, and discusses their most vulnerable points! The Guest Lecture will be posted in the Blood Angels Tactical Forum this Friday May 17 at 10am EST (sorry for the unusual time, I'm leaving town later that day!), and will remain on display (and for discussion!) for two weeks - then to be stored in our Tactical Library for future reference.

This amazing article is now on display here

April 2002


Friday April 19th Ex Libris Mortis is hosting our first Guest Speaker in our Blood Angels Tactics Board

Our guest speaker is a veteran Imperial Guard player who will be describing the tactics which Imperial Guard players use successfully against Blood Angels. The benefits of such a lecture are obvious, and we are hopeful that many of our battle brothers will be able to see the lecture and participate in the discussion of possible counter tactics which will continue for the next few days!

April is "heavy support month" over at
Krak Grenade's 40K Community so I 
decided to take a new pic of my dreadnought :-) 

In the last weekend of March we began advertising our new Blood Angels message forum, 
(so April will be it's first full month) the response has already been amazing, and we believe it will only get better as more Blood Angels players learn of the new feature!

March 2002

While recovering from a week of the flu I came up with the wild notion that 
I could add some fancy artwork to one of my LandRaiders (I blame the medicine entirely!), but 
in the end it turned out to be some of my best painting to date! Have a peek!

Many of you have seen the photo of our 40K room
well that was from summer of 2001. We still have that room going, 
but we've also expanded into the garage!
the insanity has to be seen to be believed... 

click the image below for a virtual tour, 
it took six photos to pan around the room.... 

Just for fun, closeups of a few of our Blood Angels

The Sanguinius Standard

come see one of the most detailed minis in my collection, and the banner I painted! 
a photo display, and a "how to" section! 

Death Company Powerfists

I'd never actually modeled up any of my DC with powerfists before (I'd also never taken powerfists in my Death Company! Well they were long overdue, so I tried to make them fun :-)

The great backfist (front view)

The great backfist 
(side view)

The lightning on the power fists is done almost the same way as all of my power weapons - light blue first - then white lightning crackles - then coat of blue ink and (here's the different part) I went over some of the lightning again in white - then whammo you have a shiny power fist with lightning crackles on it :-) 

The super shiny armor effect is compliments of this really neat stuff I found (a trick from airplane modelers) go to your local grocery store and check the floorwax section (trust me!) some of those floor "waxes" are not wax at all but rather pure acrylic glosscoat!The are water thin, go on well, and leave a nice shiny (and tough ptotective) glosscoat! :-)

Landraider Crusader gets dozer blades

On too many occassions I have seen a good assault go bad when a Landraider fails a difficult terrain test. I therefore resolved to do something about it! This month I've added permanent dozerblades to the front of my Landraider Crusader, and yes the doors still open completely with the blades in place :-) I may revamp them someday to make them look a tad more wicked, but for now they have a highly functional, somewhat aggressive appearance that suits me just fine :-)


Yes - the doors open just fine! It's a close fit to be sure - but they truly function perfectly :-) 

Nasty CityFight Terrain

So we're setting up terrain for a CityFight scenario, and the idea hits us to combine our trench terrain with our buildings and rubble to create the ultimate nightmare of a city which has had house to house fighting for months - a true urban combat nightmare. We ran out of time to begin the game though (company had to leave unexpectedly) but sometime soon we will have a battle using this insane terrain combination!
