|Rogue-Trader era heavy weapon marine with lascannon|
We will be playing another game of Warhammer 40k's new 8th edition this week, and my dusty old Crimson Fists will be putting in another appearance on the gaming table. The setting will shift somewhat, from the familiar nostalgia of Rynn's World and the "Battle At the Farm" to the world of Toxo IV, our sort of go-to setting for general 40k mayhem. I don't recall exactly when our use of this name started - seems to go back to at least 2009 - but we thought the name was kind whacky and did its own bit to convey the warped darkness of GW's far future.
So Toxo IV will be the setting of an encounter between Dallas' foul Chaos renegades, backed by some even fouler Nurgle types, against an Imperial task force that will feature Crimson Fist Space Marines and some Imperial Army types - this is a set-up we have used previously and it has always been fun. We are going to scale the game up a bit more this week, and bring out some vehicles.

|Unique venting system, no backpack on this fellow! Makes it much easier to pose the heavy weapons.|
|You can see the size of the contemporary decals vs. the size of these old castings...looks kind a funny, but I'll take it for now|
|Ready for gaming action with his Crimson Fist battle brothers!|
Lascannons always come in handy, so hopefully this fellow will be able to blast a renegade tank or Plague Marine with it!
