My Bio
The Ebon Dawn
Ordo Xenos, Deathwatch
There are three factions of Inquisition. One is the Ordo Xenos, the Alien Hunters. In 4th edition there was a chapter approved article that allowed the use of Kill Teams. But even then they were not widely accepted in Tourney play. In 5th edition there is nothing and no hints of anything coming. So those of us who play Deathwatch have one simple choice... which codex to use to represent our army. I choose the Blood Angels codex, and do so after experimenting with all the others to find the one that best suits me.

Inspiration
My army is inspired by the work of Sai King (Stephen King). Ka-tet means a group brought together by fate. Ebon Dawn has 2 meanings. They are warriors of the White (Dawn, the White is the forces of good) wearing black armor (ebon). The 2nd meaning is akin to the saying 'the darkness before the dawn', the Ka-tet are (or at least believe themselves to be) one of the key forces that will save humanity from this dark age of strife into a new golden age of peace.

Gallery rules
Due to recent postings I ask for this simple rule to be followed. My gallery is not for debates on rules. Its for my work. There are plenty of fine forums out there to debate rules. My Ka-tet is a DiY Deathwatch force which I've put alot of effort into and I'd like to keep the comments about the models themselves. Now if you seen that I've for some reason designed something that is against the rules of the BA codex, feel free to politely point it out to me. Last thing I need is to go to a game and found out I'm going to field something illegal. I have little patience for those who go against this.

General Update 4/10/2012

Finally found some local 40k players. Not many, but enough to start a small league group. And this group has already done one round of league, so getting involved is definitely promising. Going to be nice to not have to drive 30+ miles to play a game. Now I just need to work on building a gaming table in my garage. Current projects include: Stormdragon Bad Wolf Assault Marine/Sanguinary Guard squad leaders (prepping for 6th edition) ML/Plasma Cannon Devastators Felshot Marines (Heavies with Autocannons, counting as Emplacement autocannons) Emplacement TL Lascannon If you play Star Wars The Old Republic, Corellian Run server, Empire...

Ka-tet Project Log 12/29/2011

Got in 2 games a week ago. First against Dark Eldar. Spearhead/Kill Points. I won first turn and got in his face right away, but didn't quite make assault. Lost a Stormraven right away, but in the end I pulled ahead on kill points. If it had been anything but kill points I would have lost. Second game was versus Chaos Space Marines. 5 objectives, pitched battle. The traitors felt the wrath of the Emperor's finest this day. TH/SS Sergeant Astarte with Meltagun and Jump pack Bad Wolf - Stormdragon (Apoc Stormraven, Approved. Datasheet pending.) WoW - Steamwheedle Cartel Sif - 85 NE DK Secate - 82 NE Druid (took advantage of AV weekend for

Lost Long Ago

Lost Long Ago

Farewell. I've come to realize two people read this. I'm not leaving DA, but attempting to keep up pretenses with posts that usually involve me venting about not getting to get out and play 40k has gotten old. So this is my last journal entry. I don't foresee getting out and playing 40k again anytime soon. Just going to finish the hand-full of projects I have on my table now and then but it all away. Maybe its time for another several-year break from the game, seems to be the direction life is showing me anyways. I'm going to try and get some new pics up, but considering my photography skills are worse then a politicians ability to tell the
