"Agratha? I thought Drax's mob had the place secured?" (Voice identified as Colonel Gravis, CO 4th Praetorian Foot)

"So High Command thought sir, but the latest intel directly from Agratha Command has revised the situation significantly." (Voice identified as Strategos Gellar, Munitorum Tactica Cadre)

+Sounds of Paper rustling+

"How old is this update. Are there more?"

"Sir."

+Sound of large pile of paper dropping to the desk+

"Sir, every update revises the Orkoid strength upwards, they already considerably outnumber local forces at Agratha... even with your full strength diverted..."

"I can count man. Even with our full strength we'd be badly outnumbered."

"Tactica calculates a minimal chance of victory. The odds are overwhelming they're calling it Admiral Drax's Last Stand."

"Oh poppycock Gellar. Your forgetting one very important thing, we're now putting two of Praetoria's finest regiments in to a last stand situation, I almost pity those greenskin bars..."

++++ Static ++++

"...ey'll never know what hit them!"

"Sir? Two regiments?"

"Oh use your noggin Gellar! Now, get me the Lord Commissar - I need him to have a word with the cog boys, get him to encourage them to get the old girl painted up with no excuses. We're going to need all the firepower we can lay our hands on."

A) How'd you make that?!?

B) Where can I get instructions?

Otherwise, that his just splendid, sir.

Ha! Brilliant! I'd have to correct you though, 'the' two finest regiments of Praetoria. Good luck with the cog boys, looking fantastic already!

Better send Drax some help...

...I was too far out always,
And not waving, but drowning.

This is a Helmet,

Its constructed from a mountain of plasticard, two Baneblades and some Cities of Death terrain amongst other bits, I'm afraid there are no instructions, though if you trawl back through the blog you'll find posts charting its construction from the ground up. Ruleswise, we'll be using an updated version of the venerable BoLS Lords of War datasheet.

Now back to brainstorming how to fight a boarding action(!), you know, just in case!

Oh I wish I had some more time to paint right now lol
