Returning to the Heresy, dressed in blue.

Hello readers, Felix here! It's been some time since the last update on here hasn't it?
It's been so long in fact, it seems like the dust may have settled over a war-torn and ruined galaxy over the years, at least to me.
My personal hobby drive evaporated at the beginning of 2017 and I honestly barely picked up the brush (both air and bristled) aside from small token forces for other games, my skills dwindling in the process which only served to make me more hesitant to knock up another mighty legion in the service of the Emperor again.
However, I have been amazed with the amazing work being produced by the heresy community as a whole. Amazing conversions, events and a steadily increasing level of amazing paint on armies that has served as a constant reminder of what it is I love about Heresy as both a game and a hobby.
So here, nearly two years after my last heresy game, I want to step back into the community for the game I honestly love so much!

Agif Prime: A bit more information

Well it’s been a tad longer between updates than I was expecting, moving house saw to that sadly, but there has been a bit of work getting things underway.

Agif Prime will be set on the Death World of Agif, battling amongst the Hive Capital  and the surrounding jungles where all manner of monsters hunt prey. Prior to compliance the world had worshipped the Primordial Annihilator in all its forms, so it was no surprise when Horus’ rebellion started it declared for him, with the old cults returning once again.

As this is a narrative event we will be encouraging people to bring cool themed lists, so  if you want to bring any of the new units from Burning of Prospero, leaks have surfaced of Custodes rules in the next White Dwarf, these will be fine to use at the event.

There’s also going to be some specific themed missions, so if you have any knights bring them along for special missions, or a list to deal with some of some of the largest warmachines in the heresy.

We will also be allowing Imperial Assassins, these may be used as Agents of Imperium or Warmaster to help. Daemons of Chaos may also be trialled as a primary detachment, though this will be using the age of darkness rules, so no formations allowed at all, but also please remember that this is a narrative event, so bring lists in the spirit of the game, otherwise we may not allow them back again in future.

And finally, tickets are available from the Irresistible Force webstore, allowing a 20% discount for Games Workshop boxes purchased in store on the day, they have also been kind enough to inform us that they will be helping with prize support, more will come regarding that over the next few days……

Agif Prime: A Galaxy In Flames Wargaming Event

Hey everyone,

Wiseman here, with some exciting news, 12th of November will be the first Wargaming Event for the planet AGIF Prime. With the tratiors driven from the Inferno system, many fled to the surrounding systems, including the Hive World of AGIF. What was initially seen as a staunchly loyalist world, Warp Cults appeared from almost nowhere, as the first traitor ships appeared in orbit and within hours the Governor had been executed and the Eye of Horus hung from the Hive Primus. Quickly the planet was plunged into anarchy, as hives turned on each other, and the populations within started fighting street to street.

As far as the veue goes, Irresistible Force at Tanah Merah is under new ownership, and have offered to host the event. Instead of going for a set points value for the day, and set round times everyone is encouraged to bring a variety lists, be it 1000 points, 2000 points, 2500 points or a 1000 pt Zone Mortallis list to represent the myriad of battles that go on within the hives themselves.

The event is all about dudes looking for dudes to play toy soldiers with.The only requirement for the day is all armies need to be fully painted, but with a variety of points available, there's no excuse not to get a small force painted up for it! To help players create their own theme through the event, most options will be available for people to choose, except the Leviathan force organisation chart and the relics. The Questoris Knight list is available to be used only as an Ally detachment or as Lord of War choices.

Registration on the day will stat at 830am, and rounds will run all day with a break for lunch in the middle of the day, at the end of the day awards will be given out for the coolest dudes on each side, as well as best looking army.

Tickets will go live on the Irresistible Force website shortly (, with space limited to 10 per side. The guys at Irresistible Force have also offered to everyone taking part a 20% discount on GW boxes for the day alone, personally I’m hoping that the leaked pictures of the Custodes and Space Wolves box are out by than…….

Over the next couple weeks the page campaign page will go live, so make sure you check it out and register on there if you haven't already. Otherwise more information will go up in the event and on the blog as we get closer to the event!

Back from the depths

Hey guys,

Keepy here back from my visit to the real world. It has been a long time since I have logged on and published something and I had a spare 5mins to update you all on goings on. The blog has been a bit quiet of late mainly due to, as I have eluded to, real world things that have been taking place in the background.

I left the Army managed to get a new job which I really enjoy, it is however contracted to the Australian Defence Force and have spent a bit of time away from home. I now have another daughter, so time at home has been pretty hectic with two young children. The spare time I do have is spent catching up with my wife and relaxing at home. Things have settled down a bit now so I should be able to bang out a couple 30k projects and get some posts up.

As you are all no doubt aware, MKA was here in Australia and ran a course - I learnt an absolute ton, made a heap of new friends and can't wait to practice my new skills - I will do up a post about it shortly.

I also started my own home business, Norseman Hobby Supplies, which focuses on airbrush components and accessories. It is only new and the range is small but I am looking to develop it and hopefully it takes off. Check it out!

So what else has the crew been up to?

Braden (aka Dice Wizard) and I have been planning and preparing for a beginner's airbrush course in Melbourne which entails all the basics of how to use an airbrush, clean it, maintain it and get some good effects out
of it. It starts on the 16th July so we are off shortly to run that, hopefully he does not expose his wizard's sleeve like he did at MKA.

Wadey has been madly painting his EC and now has a Kakophoni army ready to shred all comers with a wall of noise. He is also working on some sweet objective markers that have daemonettes coming out of portals - can't wait to see what they look like!

Spraggy has been slowly adding more to his already large IF force, and has taken to "subcontracting" hobby jobs for a few people, building custom canopies for fliers, assault cannon gauntlets for BA contemptors and working on a heap of terrain. He is also plotting some good themes for a planned AGIF 30k tournament in Townsville later this year - more on that later.

Felix has just had another baby, so I can imagine he will have his hands full! Felix also has a couple of posts in the works and hopefully they will be out soon.

Wiseman has been very busy planning and plotting for his tournament series, Inferno, held in Brisbane. I have seen a couple of pics of his ever evolving DA army, and it looks wicked.

Dedled has a new job down in Victoria and will be taking some leave from the blog to pursue some career goals. We wish you all the best and hope that you come back soon mate!

Buzz has been busy with another bub as well (what is it with us? Something in the water?) but is still making some progress with his DA army. Spraggy joined him for a game a while ago and it was great to see the new legion rules in effect, man those bolter rounds are fierce.

Well that's it from me, just a quick update to say hello and that we are not all dead yet. Keep an eye out for an overdue wrap up from MKA, the airbrush course wrap up and a post about a proposed tourney in Townsville.

See you soon!

Bring the noise!! - Building the 3rd Company Elite.

Greetings all Wadey here! First and foremost I'd like to apologize for the lack of substantial content in the last year or so. We've all been preoccupied for one reason or another but are very keen to get back into things.

Rebuilding a Legion - Part 1 "Starting Fresh"

Howdy all, Felix here with a well overdue post. Not only has it been so long since my last post that I've managed to have another child in the meantime, but a bunch of the other AGIF guys have been flat out in hobby Valhalla the past few months flexing some new found hobby prowess that will, hopefully, start interweb beaming into your eye-holes in the comming days and weeks!

To make up for the lack of content specifically delivered by me however, I figured I'd start a Legion Hobby Journal, something that I had been planning to do on AGIF for well over a year now, chronicling the rise of my collection of painted XIII.
Days, weeks and months rolled on, with many a mini painted but not a single post made!

"So, why not just post some pictures now Felix" I hear you ask?
Well, voice inside my head, that's because the 6000-7000pts of Ultramarines I built up over the past two years or so has moved onto a new owner, so there's not much there to take pictures of!

Well, except a parting image I took. "Goodnight, Sweet Prince..."

My motives for selling the army were pretty straight forward. Despite the army looking pretty good on the table, I had the fortune to hit up the MKA class in Sydney, Australia earlier in the year and it made me really feel like I could do so much more than I had achieved already and, rather than strip and repaint, I opted to start from scratch (a decision I've both relished and regretted over the past few months).
