Horus Heresy 30k Event Report "Face of Oblivion": Myrmidons and the Mad Magos march to war. Warning! Post may contain army pics galore!

Trip report from the EyeofHorusPodcast event "Face of Oblivion"

Dark Mechanicus Magos Prime Malagra with Occularis and Thallax

Once again Brisbane has shown its strong 30k form with another awesome event. Tim and Michael from the Eye of Horus Podcast hosted a 1 day event at the Magic Vault here in sunny Brizvegas and as always it was a hit.

I was lucky enough to grab an invite and as this was a Centurion/Zone Mortalis event I quickly threw together some infantry based lists for my Traitor Dark Mechanicus forces. I am heavily leaning towards running a full Myrmidon cult army in the near future and this was the perfect event to try some more Myrmidon units out, they did not disappoint! I took the Mad Malagra Magos Prime again as my HQ and he personally slew two Alpha Legion Praetors in single combat and wrecked anything else that got close enough including a captured Ork Warboss that a GM dropped into one of my games! The combo of a paragon blade on a Magos combined with rad grenades and a rad furnace ensures instant death AP2 attacks all over the shop and a chainfist for back up with vehicles.
