Tale Of 40k Gamers: Matt Lyons Month One


First out the gate is Matt and his Blood Angels

Sponsored by Element Games


So congratulations to Matthew Lyons for being the first person to complete their 750pt list, and what an awesome force he’s produced. I know this was Matt’s first adventure into airbrushing and wow, it looks great. It’s the little things that I love about Matt’s army, stuff like the blue effect on the power weapons and the purple purity seals.

So let’s get to the nitty gritty, here’s his army list and fluff!

To: Chief Archiver designation XVIIIVI, Baal

Received: 999.M4I

From: Scribe Adept designation VVXI

Message Format: Telepathic

Subject: Chronicle of Insertion Force; Crimson Haze

Thought of the Day: Wisdom is the beginning of fear

Priority: Ultra High

Honoured Archiver; herein lies the initial chronicle following the glorious deeds of Insertion Force; Crimson Haze.

Upon the command of Commander (commanders, command right?) Dante himself (long may the emperors light shine on him, so his hair looks shiny and magnificent) Captain Karlaen, following his heroic feats during recent campaigns against the Tyrands (vile xenos spawn, yucky… and the tongues! Eurghhh)  was tasked with creating a strike force for an important task; reclaim an ancient technology that (again!) could prove the cure to the red thirst.




Upon choosing the members of his elite strike choice (I personally believe 1 of everything that looked cool at the time). The Strike Cruiser; Crimson Tide set sail (Ahoy!) for the Corous Sub-Sector (I believe named after a pre-emperor beer). Upon arrival on the rim (oo-err) of the sector it became quickly apparent that the Insertion Force was not the only interested party in the newly emerged worlds. In an attempt to approach our projected insertion point the crew of the Crimson Tide pulled all the blinds down on the windows (took hours, thousands of the damn things), turned off the hallway lights and oiled all the armour joints (god, the creaking, you have no idea what it’s like. Can barely frakking sleep) and prepared to slip into the sub sector through the back door.
