Cisternina Deus (Ecclesia Stercus)

2 Comments
Cisternina Deus (Ecclesia Stercus)

Here are some juicy close-ups of our 3rd major building on our massive 40K gaming table.

If you are interested to know how we created the gaming table you can watch the build vlogs here:

https://www.beastsofwar.com/vlog/hobby-vlog

Watch out for night shots at some point this week too!

This building has been named and has some background created by our community member – robert.

Cisternina Deus (Ecclesia Stercus)

The second building was a shrine to the Adeptus Astartes. The chapter it was dedicated to, is little known, but the Cisternina Deus saved the world from an Ork invasion, 300 years before the present times and the people revered these marines here. More sinister dealings have been thought to have occurred here, and ultimately this shrine to the Imperiums finest warriors may be the source of all of the world’s woes. This building was known as the Ecclesia Stercus.

The Battle of the Caesar

Our webcomic maestro Caesar is locked in mortal combat with his dear brother on the apocalypse table.

Tyranids are looking pretty squishy as the Tau warmachine rumbles on. Who will emerge victorious and retain bragging rights in the Caesar family?

Emperors’ Light

1 Comment
Emperors’ Light

We’re mid way through the OnTableTop 40K Weekend!

Yesterday we highlighted the building called the Bareith Guild House but today we are getting a close up look at the Ivory Tower called Emperors’ Light.

We’ve been building this Apocalypse size 40K gaming table over the last month with the main building materials coming from the Archon Studio Rampart terrain system https://archon-studio.com/

Watch the build vlogs here: https://www.beastsofwar.com/vlog/hobby-vlog/

► Emperors’ Light a.k.a Lantern Hoard (Cypher2009)

One of the tallest buildings in the sector, the Emporers’ Light is used as both a communications tower, and also a light beacon to make low-flying craft aware of both their position on the planet and that there are tall buildings present. Due to the large number of flashing and flickering lights that adorn the tower, the locals have given it the name “The Lantern Hoard”.

Nids vs Imperium: The Battle Rages On

1 Comment

If you’ve been watching today’s Live Stream, you probably saw that the battle hasn’t been going too well for the Imperium.

Nids vs Imperium: The Battle Rages On

It all started with the Tyranids swarming across the board. The Imperium managed to whittle down their numbers, but not before they themselves lost one of their precious tanks.

Nids vs Imperium: The Battle Rages On

However, it’s not just the Tyranids in front they have to worry about, as a swarm of the gribbly aliens have turned up in the river behind them.

As everyone gets stuck into their second day of hobbying, a game of Apocalypse is breaking out across the amazing gaming table.

The Apocalypse Is Here

David and Matthew are gearing up for a truly massive game. Matthew’s brave Imperials are lining up to provide a last line of defence / tasty all-you-can-eat buffet for a never ending horde Tyranids.
