About This Club

A club devoted to all aspects of the Wars on Armageddon – from Angron's invasion to Ghazghkull's return. Lore, model showcases and general discussion welcomed.
  1. What's new in this club
  2. Here's a link to a collaborative blog detailing the Second War for Armageddon – enjoy, and you are cordially invited to join in. https://ashesofarmageddon.blogspot.com/
  3. This is the place to share all your pictures Blood Angels, Ultramarine and Salamanders veterans of the Second Armageddon War. Why not add a little detail to the captions? [+Captain Erasmus Tycho leads the Third Company into battle+]
  4. Hit some delays, but I'm kicking off the dust with a new Salamanders-themed blog: Here's the link: )
  5. These are the Ork forces that were identified as participating in the Third War for Armageddon in Codex: Armageddon (3rd edition): These are the forces of the Imperium that were identified as participating in the Third War for Armageddon in Codex: Armageddon (3rd edition): Notes: In the codex, Sons of Guilliman is spelled "Sons of Guilleman." At that time, the Astra Militarum was known by its Low Gothic name: Imperial Guard. At the time that the codex was published, the Deathwatch had not been introduced yet. They were named later when the Inquisitor game was published. Conventional wisdom is that the "Kill-teams" of the Ordo Xenos refers to the Deathwatch. That's the theory to which I subscribe. However, it could be that these "Kill-teams" may have been Inquisitorial Storm Troopers (akin to Tempestus Scions), so I haven't realigned this listing to the Adeptus Astartes column. The Imperial Knights are not listed, but it seems likely that many Imperial Knight Households sent detachments and more than a few Freeblades were probably present. In addition, while the Imperium-aligned Knight Households might be listed separately, the Adeptus Mechanicus-aligned Households might be listed under the Adeptus Mechanicus heading. Since none were listed in the codex, however, none are shown here. It would be very interesting to see an update of this campaign with Imperial Knights listed. I haven't renamed the company equivalents of the Adepta Sororitas to their current nomenclatures (presumably these are Commanderies). While the Adeptus Arbites are listed, the Enforcers of Armageddon (or whatever Armageddon calls the local constabulary) aren't. There should be at least as many precincts of these law enforcers as their Adeptus Ministorum counterparts, and more likely many more. The Adeptus Mechanicus has been fleshed out in the years since 3rd edition. I would have listed the Titan Legions under a sub-heading of "Collegio Titanica" but I wanted to preserve the basic structure of the official chart. Similarly, I don't know if the "regiments" of Skitarii would be Cohorts or Maniples. In addition, the Legio Cybernetica has been brought back. The Officio Sabatorum and Templars Psykologis remain enigmatic, their roles not being officially revealed in any official publications that I can think of (admittedly, I haven't read the novels). We might speculate on their natures based on their names and listings (e.g., the agents of the Officio Sabatorum might be similar to the Assassins, but adept at sabotage instead of assassination; while the Templars Psykologis work in squad-sized teams and probably have something to do with either psychological warfare or psyker warfare). I imagine that an official updated version of this campaign would expand the listing of the forces available. When the [Third War for] Armageddon campaign took place, hobbyists could play battles using regular 3rd edition Warhammer 40,000, as well as Epic Armageddon (playing larger battles, though this game no longer exists and the closest thing we have now is Apocalypse) and Battlefleet Gothic. You can find the rules for both of these games online (see the Resource topics in the Other Games forum). Aeronautica Imperialis is a great way to cover the aerospace battle (between the space battles of Battlefleet Gothic and the land battles of Warhammer 40,000). Shadow War: Armageddon (no longer supported) and Kill Team provide great ways to play the battles at the squad/warband skirmish level. If GW ever gives us good rules for playing Adeptus Titanicus in the "modern" age (or if enterprising hobbyists develop some rules ), players can play the Gargants versus Titans/Knights level. Another great opportunity for a project is Necromunda. In The Battle for Armageddon, there's a page with a transcription of a communication to a Commissar in which a Captain (of some Armageddon military/law enforcement forces) identifies a number of gangs that have agreed to cooperate (i.e., fight alongside/in support of military/law enforcement forces). It would be interesting to see an enterprising hobbyist develop rules for Ork "gangs" in both the hives as well as the wastes so that players could represent this facet of the war in the Necromunda game.
  6. Updated versions of the force dispositions for the Orks and the Imperium, as well as a listing of gangs from The Battle for Armageddon book.
  7. Back in 2017/2018 we developed some expanded rules for Space Marines in the Shadow War: Armageddon game. One of the elements of that project was the Emperor's Shield challenge in which members were challenged to submit images of kill teams from Chapters that participated in the Third War for Armageddon, with submissions being used in the final rules packages. One of the most useful elements of that challenge was the scans of the Index Astartes article images depicting the Chapters that participated in the campaign. Those have been reproduced below: (click on the images to see larger versions) In alphabetical order, those Chapters are: Angels of Fire (7 companies) Angels of Redemption (4 companies) Angels of Vigilance (6 companies) Angels Porphyr (8 companies) Black Dragons (9 companies) Black Templars (3 crusades) Blood Angels (1 company) Celebrants (10 companies) Celestial Lions (10 companies) Exorcists (12 companies) Flesh Tearers (5 companies) Iron Champions (7 companies) Legion of the Damned (?) Marines Malevolent (2 companies) Mortifactors (10 companies) Omega Marines (9 companies) Raptors (5 companies) Relictors (10 companies) Salamanders (6 companies) Silver Skulls (7 companies) Sons of Guilliman (6 companies) Space Wolves (5 great companies) Storm Giants (5 companies) Storm Lords (2 brotherhoods) White Scars (3 brotherhoods)
  8. A new blog set up by @duckcalledsue. https://awfularmageddon.blogspot.com/ Brilliant concept, it reimagines the 2nd edition scenario booklet with 9th edition rules and Celestial Lions as the Space Marines.
