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: Grey Knights Dreadknight

Man! I painted this dude ages ago but realised yesterday that I hadn’t put him on my blog!!!!

This is one of those truly cool models that have to be bought. Though I was determined to have an unusual pose (rather than the normal arms symmetrically out). After deciding to make him a gun platform primarily I went for a firing stance. 

I’m not a huge helmet-off kind of guy with my Little Men.

Nuff said on that subject.

It really is a towering model and lovely for a centre piece. I’m determined to finish my Grey Knights now and don’t have too many left to paint.

I followed my usual rule with this model:

Use at least three shades of colour on each part of the model (including the base!).

That seems to serve me pretty well. 


  1. Love it! Great work dude, love reading the blog!

  2. Thank you! I love writing it!

    (Must write more regularly)

  3. Simple and yet super effective paint job! Great model (and I'm not even a 40K fan!).
