Snakes of Ithaka's return to the Phratry

The Iron Snakes The Iron Snakes Fear not the snake for his guile, nor his silence. Fear him for his speed at striking, The clenching strength of his coils, The armour of his scales, And the sharpness of his bite. Fear the snake, oh enemies of man, For his coils encircle us And his bright eyes, unblinking, Watch over us forever.   From The Lays of Proud Ithaka.     Time to start anew. It has been almost a year since I pos

The Iron Snakes

It's been almost a year since I have posted anything on this blog and my 4th company project fizzled out as real life took hold for the majority of last year. So I decided that for 2024 I am determined to get back on the hobby horse as it where.   The intention is to set aside 2 nights a week to sit down and do some hobby and with this I have switched my focus from 40k to Kill Team as I think that getting several kill teams painted up is more manageable then a full 40k army.   

Judiciar Conversion

So over the bank holiday weekend, I found myself with a bit of unexpected hobby time and as it was too hot in the conservatory where my painting desk is I decided to do some kit bashing instead of painting.   One unit that I won't to add to this project was a Judiciar as I like the idea of a chaplain in training, however I'm not a massive fan of the GW model so I decided to dive into the bits box and see about making my own version.   I wanted the conversion to be easily iden

4th Company Structure

So the two aims I have with this project is to:   1. get a 2000 point army to play some games with.   2. to build out the whole 4th company.   The first aim is pretty easy to achieve and once the 10th ed codex  is out I will settle on a list but for the time being I have been trying to see how I can go about aim 2 as there doesn't seem to be a great deal of information about the current company structures in regards to Firstborn/Primaris units. Although I don't

The Swords of Calth

After deciding to go with the 4th Company for my next project, I picked up the latest Uriel Ventris Novel to catch up on what the latest lore was.   One thing I want to replicate from the novel is the swords of Calth so I can run them in my army with Uriel, so I have set about planning out some conversions to represent the members of the command squad.   First up we have Apothecary Selenus      A nice and easy quick kit bash to start us off using parts fro

Pile of shame or pile of potential

So as per the last blog one of the reasons that I decided to go with space marines where the sheer amount of bits and kits I had laying around.   I have always tried to keep the to do pile under control however after replacing my hobby desk I realised that the pile of shame has gotten a little out of hand and needs to be slimmed down so I have decided to sell of some of the kits that I am never going to get around to building and focusing purely on this Ultramarine force.   O

Coming back to the 4th

I first got into 40k back in 5th when a work colleague how knew I was into Sci Fi lent me a copy of the first Ultramarines omnibus and that was it I was hooked,  so I started a 4th company army that I played up until late 7th when I dropped out the hobby.   So when the rumours of 10th started circulating earlier in the year, I decided that I wanted to get back into the actually playing some games of 40k after the past couple of years of building my Iron Snakes as a purely modelling pro
