Greets! Just a quick post to show off my Ulthwe Windriders. I have been using them in quite a few battle reports in semi painted semi glued states. They have been in this sorry state for 10 or more years but I have finally gotten my paint on and finished them. When I first constructed them I wanted to use them as pirates hence their completely illegal meltagun and flamer. But since my newfound 40K obsession I finally got round to finishing them...
Brother Captain Prophylactic watched on the comm the peaceful demonstration outside the food warehouses. Since arriving on the Imperial planet of Dy Celiac IV he had developed a seething hatred for the surly barely human population that resided there. Originally posted as a relief force to assist against Tau aggression, the Blood Angels had been left stranded when Tau Fire Warriors in an act of revenge activated EMP devices that had destroyed transport off world effectively cutting them off. That was 4 Terran orbits ago and of late food shortages and several 'Black rage' incidents had soured...
Good evening (or whatever). Some more painted toy soldiers to display! More Aeldari. This time I have finished 10 Swooping Hawks. I have used these models in their less aesthetically pleasing undercoated and wingless versions but now here they are in their full dropping grenades on the unsuspecting then opening up with their highly shooty glory. Long ago when I purchased these lads Games Workshop in their wisdom put 5 identical models in their blister packs, hence ten models with only two poses. So painting this squad wasn't exactly a barrel of laughs but I managed to power through after a...
Salutations. After a lot of life type distractions I have finished some more models. As the last few games I've played were all Genestealer Cults orientated, I naturally finished up some Eldar. Here's the blurb.... Scouts of Ulthwe So as I've gone with Ulthwe as my craftworld of choice I needed to get some troop slots filled in. I used some black primer some grey drybrushing and some sepia ink for the white weapons. One of my faster turnarounds. Of course I had to emphasise something so I thought the luxurious leather knee length boots would give these guys the impression of rugged outdoorsie...
Howdy. My rather lackluster painting progress has finally improved! Yes, I've managed to get a few off my to do list. So here's what I done; Brood Brothers My Genestealers have been bolstered by some rather ancient Imperial Guard models. A purplish tint to the skin and some dull clothes denotes these are members of The Drabb Butchers - the name of my cult that are an offshoot of The Innerwyrm Cult, hailing from an abattoir world. You will probably notice there is a trooper pointing forward with a 33% arm addition. This is trooper Urkk, he normally tucks an extra arm under his uniform but he...
Greetings. After some laziness hobby wise I have finished up my Genestealer Cult Killteam. Feel free to make up a suitably impressive name as I'm at a loss at the moment. They posed for this publicity picture following an impressive arse kicking given out to some Orks. A batrep may well be on the way. The cult's magus lurks in the corner being sneaky. Thanks for reading.
Anyone sort of following this blog may well be aware of me trying to run a rather lackadaisical campaign set on (and around) the planet Scargill. For those with a smidge of interest I've decided to flesh out the background of the planet and surrounding system.Scargill is the 3rd planet sunwards of the system (and sector) of the same name. The system contains five planets in total, four are habitable due to terraforming during the Dark Age of Technology. The planets are, from outermost inwards; Gruesome Discovery, Stuke, Scargill, Ghades, and Conflagratus. Conflagratus is the only planet in...
Howdy. A quick post to display all those last minute additions to my painted model family for 2018. Last year I managed a review of the year, not sure I will achieve one this year so this may be a slight nod in that direction too. Firstly, here are completed toy soldiers; Imperial Preacher After recent games I've noticed that my Catachan troops aren't all that bad in combat with their strength of 4. Give them a preacher and they get an extra attack so doubling their effectiveness. Giving them the order Fix Bayonets improves their shit-kicking ability even further. So a bloke with a sword and...
Greetings people of Earth! It's been a few months since I put some painted models on here but now I'm back! 2018 was shaping up to be one of my most productive years ever as far as painting models was concerned (well it was back in July), then I got caught up playing games and writing batreps so the production line ceased. I played a few games of Killteam which were great craic but as my Stealers weren't painted up I didn't feel the need to report them here. I may do, but not today. Aeldari Support First up are my Aeldari. Two support weapon crewelfs, two Aeldari missile launchers and a...
