So I've kinda wanted to do a traitor guard army since reading Gaunt's Ghosts. The idea of something like the blood pact or the sons of sek is pretty appealling I was also inspired a bit by my buddy Fred who had a superb Lost and the Damned army when the Eye of Terror campaign rules were valid. Anyhow, I crafted a wee but of fluff some time ago to explain one of the models that came with the Dark Vengeance set. Specifically, the cultist champion who was kitted out in commisar garb. It's here, if you want to peruse it:...
Greetings and salutations. In an effort to continually improve the look of my armies, I've been excited about the idea of adding a splash of color to my Dark Eldar flyers. I had the brilliant idea of using stencils to apply iconography to the wings and I was super excited when I saw a box of airbrush templates from Testors at my local Michaels. I plopped down the $24.00 and rushed home to give 'em a go. First things first. When I opened the box I was pretty disappointed. There were six sheets of plastic with parchment seperators in a roll in the box. No instructions, no best pracices, no...
After doing the conversion to make this model have a dual autocannon weapons loadout, I took a little bit of time to get it painted up. It was a little bit of time too. This was one of the quickest and easiest models to paint. Only took me about an hour. For a speed painted model it looks pretty good on the table which is all I'm going for here.
I need help making a competitive 2000pt blood angels list. I have some ideas on what to start with (Supreme command detachment and vanguard detachment) Basically looks a little something like this. Command Supremacy Detachment Sanguinor Lemartes Librarian w/JP Base Sword Pistol F&K Vanguard Detachment Sanguinary Priest w/JP Base Power Sword Pistol F&K Assault Squad (JP) Marine x10 Flamer x2 Power Sword x1 Chainsword x9 Bolt Pistol x10 Combat Shield x1 Assault Squad (JP) Marine x10 Meltagun x2 Power Sword x1 Chainsword x9 Bolt Pistol x10 Combat Shield Axe Guard SG x5 Axe x 4 Power Fist...
An Unstoppable Painting Juggernaut! My current painting campaign is continuing well. Despite recent debacles I'm still painting Astra Militarum. I'm really enjoying painting up my old lead models. they have plenty of character, and as they were bought quite a while ago, I'm being pretty economic with my cash. So without any more waxing lyrical about possible lead poisoning and licking the tips of paint brushes, here's some prose and pictures; Men Carrying Things First up are two demolition charge holders and a member of a lascannon (I think) weapon team. It seems carrying said demo charges...
With the drop of 8th edition the dual twin autocannon loadout for dreadnoughts has been very popular and for good reason. I've had two dreadnoughts for quite some time that came in the Assault on Black Reach set from a few editions ago. Decided to do a little cutting and scratch building to achieve the appearance of twin autocannons.First I used a hotwire cutter to remove the previous weapon loadout on both arms. Using some round sprue from Malifuax models and a bit of brass tube and we're done...
