Wargaming Wednesday: Blood Cross Chapter

Well, I'm a month behind already. ~sigh~ I'll just have to get better. As usual, Amazon affiliate links at the end.

A Tactical Battle Brother of the Blood Cross
This Wednesday we're looking back in time to my DIY Space Marine Chapter for Warhammer 40K, the Blood Cross. After not playing a game of 40K since 1995 or so, I finally sallied forth once more due to a local "slow grow" campaign that started two weeks ago. We started at 350 points and are currently in Cycle Two (the cycles advance every two weeks culminating in a mega-fight after Cycle 5 ends). We're currently in Cycle two at 500 points.

Task Force Habbyana (350 points):

Chapter Master Farad'n Corrino &  Eternal Brother Ramuel (Assault on Black Reach Dreadnought with a Templar Banner added and a AOBR Terminator Sgt.)

Chapter Master Farad'n Corrino. Captain in Terminator Armor. Relic Blade, Storm Bolter, Stratagem: Chapter Master, 106 pts.

Tactical Space Marine Squad. 1st Squad, 3rd Company "The Ridge-Runners," 140 pts.
   --Sgt. Monterey Gordon. SM Sargent. Boltgun, Power Sword,  frag & krak grenades, 16 pts.
   --Space Marine with Heavy Weapon. Heavy bolter, bolt pistol, frag & krak grenades, 22 pts.
   --Space Marine with Special Weapon. Flamer, bolt pistol, frag & krak grenades, 18 pts.

Eternal Brother Samuel. Dreadnought. Dreadnought combat weapon with storm bolter, multi-melta, 104 pts.

That's puts us right at 350 pts. For Cycle Two, I added:

Brother Librarian Harq al-Ada Corrino. Primaris Librarian in Phobos Armor.  Bolt pistol, power sword, camo cloak, frag & krak grenades, smite, mind raid, tenebrous curse, 101 points.

Brother Librarian Harq al-Ada Corrino

Brother-Medico Antoninus. Apothecary. Bolt pistol, chainsword, frag & krak grenades, 50 points.

Brother-Medico Antoninus

And that puts us at 501 points exactly for Cycle Two.

Our first two games went well. I won the first game and lost the second by 1 Victory Point; my opponent broke the plane for linebreaker by about 1/16th of an inch. Stupid Eldar!

If you want to build up a similar space marine force, I suggest the following selections:

Start Collecting! Space Marines: https://amzn.to/2QfSeDT

This set will actually put you over about 20 points depending on the tactical squad load-out since the included Dreadnought is a Venerable model.

Space Marine Primaris Librarian in Phobos Armor: https://amzn.to/33Lbg9f

Space Marine Command Squad: https://amzn.to/2NHn32C

This box will give you the sprues to build 5 models: Space Marine Veteran Sergeant, Company Champion, Apothecary, Standard Bearer, and a Space Marine with assault weapon.

Until Fantasy Friday, may all your brushes stay pointy and your colors not dry out!
