Fortress of Redemption


Fortress of Redemption from GamesDay 2010.

The Fortress of Redemption is an indomitable fortress, a towering bulwark against the ravages of planetary invasion. First used by the Dark Angels of the Adeptus Astartes, these unyielding fortresses have since been used by every military force in the Imperium of Man, and have proved invaluable in the war against disorder. A nigh on unassailable stronghold, the Fortress of Redemption bristles with weaponry, a missile silo and two bunker annexes.

This is quite a “constrained” piece of scenery in that it is very specific terrain piece that has, in my opinion, little use outside a Dark Angels army. If this had been a non-specific Space Marine chapter fortress I am sure I would have bought one, as I suspect many others would as well. Having said that I do like the fact that Games Workshop as well as producing non-specific terrain also makes specific terrain.

Grey Knights Jetbike

The greatest threat to the Imperium of Man is, and has always been, the followers of Chaos and the foul daemons of the Warp. The Inquisitors of the Ordo Malleus, the Daemonhunters, are at war with forces too terrible to comprehend and, together with the holy warriors of the Grey Knights, they must take the light of the Emperor into the darkness. The threat of the daemonic is so great that only these heroic warriors have the necessary skills and knowledge to stand against such diabolical foes.

When the Dark Angels were released I really liked the Master of the Ravenwing on the “last” remaining Imperial Jetbike.

Master Sammael of the Ravenwing is a true Angel of Death. From the saddle of his jetbike he cuts down any foolish enough to stand in his path with the infamous Raven Sword, its blade cut from the same meteorite as the Sword of Secrets. A highly accomplished hunter of The Fallen, Sammael is rightly honoured by his brethren and he is feared by his foes as few other holders of his rank have ever been.

Dark Angels Master of the Ravenwing

So much so I knew I had to get one for my Grey Knights army, possibly maybe more than one!  If anyone other than the Master of the Ravenwing was going to have arcane technology it would be the Grey Knights!

This is as far as I have got putting the jetbike together.

These are the metal parts you get in the box.

Dark Angelish Grey Knights

For my (very slow) grey Knights army I am using a variety of Space Marine models for the core troops. These include Space Marine Veterans and Dark Angels.
Having got a Dark Angels box set, I made them up and gave the models a black undercoat.

So they are not like the metal Grey Knights, but Grey Knights use a variety of old equipment, now and again I suspect they may use slightly newer kit hence being able to use the Dark Angels sprues.
