Welcome to Conflict Valorax, an open-ended narrative campaign for Warhammer 40,000 set deep within the Ultima Segmentum on the Eastern Fringe of the galaxy and close to the limit of mankind’s domain. The purpose of this campaign narrative is to richly detail the setting and history of the Valorax star system in order to bring a depth and storyline to ongoing games set within the Warhammer 40,000 universe. Games of Warhammer 40,000, Epic, Inquisitor, Aeronautica Imperialis, Space Crusade, Space Hulk and Battlefleet Gothic are all set within this greater context, each conflict adding detail to the ongoing plot.

On the Painting Table: Tyranid Mieotic Spore Sacks

Boy oh boy, do I love these models!?!?

They're the Mieotic Spore Sacks from Forge World and one of my favourite models EVER!

My friend Joao doesn't like them, but then he does like this model.

GW paint names are a bit redundant now, but basically, I used a Yellow base paint, shaded with a brown wash and highlighted with three progressive yellows.

The greens were three different greens, dark to light, with a  gloss finish.

In the game, these babies deploy individually from Deep Strike, landing anywhere on the board then moving randomly. If they touch an enemy unit, they blow up, releasing more normal Spore mines  from within.

As such, they're as useful for the psychological impact as much as any actual effect they might have. 

Aren't they lovely!!!


  1. They're so lovely! Hey, what's wrong with me liking weird goblins? They're still better-looking than repulsive sacks!
