  1. 40K Roleplay Campaign: To Sakovhim - part 6.4 - Sakovhim and Its Demesnes

    Khotyll

    Khotyll is a suburb on the extreme southwest of Savokhim. Lying within the historic Necrontyr province of Tyll, , Khotyll was amalgamated into the city proper in the time of Phaeron Phylolael's father, Phaeron Khoss and subsequently made a name for itself as a borough for the upwardly mobile Immortals of the city, situated as it was so closely to the contemporary county boundary of Vyss, a domain claimed for generations by Phaeron Khoss' bondsmen.

    Khatterchlyph

    Historically a grand market and mercantile area which sprang out as a kind of favela alongside Phyl, Khatterchlyph is one of the most important areas of the city of Sakovhim to the Necron. In many ways the seat of Necrontyr working-class culture, if Phyl was the domain of the lords and ladies, Khatterchlyph was where the commoners lived out their lives. The vast central area, once an organic mess of merchant establishments mixing freely with suburban conurbations, since

    The City

    The City of Phyl (pronounced 'FI-ull') is a separate city within the bounds of Sakovhim itself. Originally, it constituted most of Sakovhim during the early days of the Necrontyr settlements – well before even the days of biotransference, but the conurbation has since grown far beyond the City's borders. The City is now only a tiny part of the metropolis of the Sakovhim region, though it remains a notable part of central Sakovhim. It holds city status in its own right and

  4. BONUS BLOG! Are the Eldar actually good guys?

    Why would the good Eldar work with their evil, evil cousins? That would never happen in real life. I mean, the idea that the Eldar and Dark Eldar could ally is as ridiculous as the CIA sponsoring the Taleban…

    Oh, wait.

    That happened, didn't it? Okay, poor example. But it's as ridiculous as heroically democratic Americans

    So, this week I was going to do a fairly extensive gun-servitor scratchbuild. Then my desk lamp blew, followed by my starting up at a gym, with the first session leaving my arms wracked with agony from overexertion.

    As a result, this week I present a much more modest effort to save both my arms from too much effort and my eyes from too much squinting; it's mostly a kitbash this time, although you could scratchbuild this with incredible ease if you were so

  6. 40K Roleplay Campaign: To Sakovhim - part 6.1 - Sakovhim and Its Demesnes

    Sakovhim and Its Demesnes

    Sakovhim is the capital city and metropolitan borough of Phylolaem. Based in the E'Krati-defined county of Sa'le'prayrye, its name derives from the firstborn child of Phaeron Phylolael, whose death is held by the once-proud Phaeron as the driving influence behind his desire for an egalitarian, fair society. With some of its southern suburbs annexed from Sa'le'rouzhe, the site of the long forgotten Necrontyr city was built upon by the unknowing E'Krati upon

    So it's another one of these. This week, I'm going to look at an adaption of the Assault Cannon tutorial; most of the things I build are made using the same skills, only adjusted for different purposes.

    Today, I will be showing you how to create an Autocannon ammunition drum, in the style of the current Imperial Guard Heavy Weapon Team/Hydra. Depending on the size of the styrene rod you decide to use for this scratchbuild, you can make ammo drums for anything

    Welcome once again ladies and gentlebeans to another tutorial on how to scratchbuild. I recently published a separate comment thread featuring some female Astra Militarum (link for those interested: http://www.lounge.belloflostsouls.ne...tarum-Regiment) and received a number of questions regarding the origins of the women's lasguns.

    As a result, this week, we're not looking at a straight scratchbuild,

  10. 40K Roleplay Campaign: To Sakovhim - part 4.10- Important Social Movements.

    Matloqi

    Drugs legislation is difficult topic in Phylolaem. Culturally, all four species which make up the Covenant are strongly at odds with each other. The Bifrosti embrace the typically Imperial attitude that the vast majority of drugs are a gateway to recidivism, and thus would like to see them fully prohibited. The E'Krati, likewise, have a long tradition of disapproval of drugs unless one is of the Ethereal caste and therefore able to cope with the mental strains such chemicals
