Armies played


  1. Hi Brother Paint here, first time posting a blog and also a try to post photos from IOS devices. To cut a long story short back just before covid hit I was diagnosed with a rare version of an autoimmune disease that likes to ever so often give me a kicking, it’s has over time damaged my eyes and pancreas and other squidgy bits that make funny noises during the night. And whilst I’m lockdown and just before and after I did what every good plastic crack addict has done….. HORDE So join me on my journey if you like and give me some hints and help as I strive to finish each of my armies so they can get slapped across and off the board Ultramarines Necrons Adepta Sororitas Death Guard Black legion I’ll add a few more photos later but will put a few down atm
  2. Hey BnC I’ve got a couple logs up here - right now the active ones are my Iron Warriors 30k legion and my 40k Zerkers kill team. I also have a very slow progress log based around Fabius bile and the Emperor’s Children, and a Carcharadons army which is on Hiatus. So why make a fifth? The answer is simple. I love converting things. Sometimes I’ll see a piece and think it looks perfect for X Legion/Chapter/Xenos and I’ll put something together real quick. Some of my favourite kitbashes and conversions happen this way, but I have no place here to share them - so I wanted to put together a blog where I can post whatever, whenever, regardless of army. So to kick this off I’ll start with my current WIP - A late Heresy Word Bearer by the name of Myr Khothon, known as the Zealot of Cassidium Primus. Here he is a little before I finished converting him (some changes made to the right arm): And here he is now, nearing the end of painting! Here’s a close up of the glow effects on his conjuring hand as light glows through from between his fingers: LMK what you think! There’s plenty more to come, I’ve got years of conversions (Some of which are actually painted!) to share. CC welcome! Cheers
  3. Reading up on Abaddon's Black Crusades, the 10th Black Crusade (also called the Conflict of Helica) was a conflict that broke into the Medusa system. Abaddon and the Black Legion made an alliance with the Iron Warriors and launched an assault on the Iron Hands. From what I can tell - the Black Legion fleet distracts other forces, the Chaos forces devastate the Medusa system, and then they retreat before the bulk of the Iron Hands chapter and their allies arrive to relieve the siege. There isn't much information that I can find online, but I was wondering if someone with the Iron Hands supplement, or at least more familiar with the Iron Hands lore, can provide a better account of the 10th Black Crusade and what happened in the Medusa system? (Apologies if this is the wrong subforum)

Where the night-side hemisphere plunges to -350°F forming a stable planetary surface of desolate splendor, in stark contrast the day-side hemisphere is as hot as the tungsten filament of an incandescent bulb, resulting in the formation of a vast ocean of lava. The only natural atmosphere of this planet is produced from the vapors arising from the molten silicates in this vast ocean, causing weather events comprised of stone, as pebbles and rocks condense out of the air to rain down into the molten hellscape below. A round world made ostensibly flat, the division between the hemispheres is referred to as Horizon, and revered it as a sacred divide; the population of The Dark Works understand that while their world is a sphere it also has a very real edge, beyond which a hellish oblivion lay, but from that oblivion their power is drawn, quite literally. ++ The Mechanicus of The Dark Works have taken the concept of Forge World to a literal culmination with the construction of Mundis Fornax ∙ The World Furnace; where other Forge Worlds might hollow a planet for raw materials and build massive structures upward into the sky, the vast majority of The Dark Works burrows carefully into the night-side crust surrounding the molten mass that comprises the majority of the planet. Constructed over several millennia, with further progress continuing, a linked series of colossal geo-thermal extraction complexes of unparalleled scale harness essentially the entire planet, producing the massive amounts of thermal energy and motive force required for large scale production, power a multitude of experiments and explorations, and to maintain the remarkable equilibrium that has been created. The planet itself is considered so sacred by its population that it is never used as materials in common manufacturing, with the vast majority of any extracted material being ceremoniously returned to the molten ocean; only very small portions of specific constituents are extracted and reserved for the production of exceptional wargear and deeply sacred objects. A tiny sealed ampule containing a few grains of stone precipitation, presented to those servants of Atrum Laboris who have distinguished themselves in some significant way in their service to The Forge, is one rare and revered example. ++ The extremely close and rapid orbit of COROT-Exo-7b around its massive Blue Giant host star provides other pronounced advantages that have combined to make The Dark Works essentially unassailable, permitting it to assert its independence. Any spacecraft attempting to reach the Forge World has no choice but to follow a very small corridor, using the planet itself as a solar shield as it approaches; any attempt to flank the planet at ranges close enough to launch a meaningful attack must contend with solar energies and gravitational forces so intense that a fleet would be twisted, mangled, and turned to carbon cinders plummeting towards the star in short order. The intense gravity in particular, which was somewhat crudely compensated for during the construction of Mundis Fornax, became a force that could be carefully studied, experimented with, and ultimately harnessed, once the output of The World Furnace was online and able to internally sustain the required gravitational stability for a habitable environment. ++ In turn the Mechanicus of The Dark Works applied their uniquely deep understanding of gravity to construct a trio of Super-Heavy Graviton Cannons of unprecedented proportions to act as the ultimate gatekeepers to the planet. The brilliance of this Graviton Array lay in the way it operates; not only can it produce and manipulate its own gravity field, it can also create a form of gravity well to act as a giant amplifier that can harness, focus, and project, the massive gravitational forces of the star itself to catastrophic effect. Approaching craft that are expected will have the extreme gravitational forces of the massive star carefully compensated for, providing an effortless approach to the Forge World. Should anything undesirable attempt to close on the planet a series of options are afforded by the enormous Graviton Array; simply denying to compensate for the natural gravitational forces of the star is generally enough to stop an unwanted approach. However, the colossal array can easily use its effects to twist, sheer, and/or implode, dense or heavily armoured targets into so much raw material ready for harvest and re-purposing. Alternately, lighter targets that may attempt to rapidly advance on the planet can be effortlessly deflected out of the small safe-approach corridor and be forced to contend with the unrelenting solar energies of COROT-7. Given the abundance of motive force that can be directed from Mundis Fornax to the Graviton Array at a moment’s notice, it can be charged and ready to activate remarkably quickly for such an enormous device. ++ Given its uniquely defensible position, Atrum Laboris has chosen to carefully assert and maintain an autonomous standing. Understandably (and justifiably), there is considerable suspicion surrounding the nature of the research, experimentation, and development, undertaken in the darker recesses of this secretive Forge World; the Fabricator Generals, Locum, and High Priests of The Dark Works understand only too well that they must walk this path carefully and are therefore very adept in the manner of their negotiations with any given outside party. Great care is taken to conduct themselves accordingly through a selection of appropriate representatives who can engage in negotiations with a wide range of clientele, who in turn have a wide range of needs. Despite having a broad selection available that is absolutely unsanctioned, the care with which transactions are conducted has kept direct links to the Forge World well protected and obscured. With appropriate tithes consistently delivered, and quality legal munitions, weapons, armour, and wargear, on offer to those who can accommodate the price, suspicion alone has not been enough to warrant an attempt to test the intimidating defenses of this entrenched Forge World. +++ +++++ ++ Data File ∙ End ++++ +++++++ ++ Compiling Data Results ∙ Ongoing… ++ Stand-by… +++ ++ Comm-Link ∙ Active… +++++++++ +++ +++++ +
  5. I was given a GW gift card for Christmas, and I am thinking about getting a knight to go with my Black Legion. If you could only purchase a single Knight kit, which would you buy and why?
  6. THIS THREAD IS RESURRECTED FROM THE PHOTO-BUCKET BUTCHERY OF 2016!!! Hey all! So just a little background info about my warband: The idea came out of 6th Edition Chaos Codex that briefly mentioned those warriors who fail Abaddon, or are mauled in battle: "The Oath-Broken are a special formation of the Black Legion comprised of those Chaos Space Marines who have failed in the service of the Legion's master, Abaddon the Despoiler. Those that dare betray the Warmaster of Chaos seldom live long enough to regret their mistake, and those who do quickly come to regret their folly bitterly as their bodies and souls are subjected to the most abject of agonies. The Oath-Broken are no true traitors to Abaddon, but merely those who failed in their assigned tasks, or got badly mauled on the battlefield and crippled by horrendous wounds. Failures and cripples invariably lose the fickle attention of their mortal and immortal masters alike, and without the blessings of the Powers of the Warp to mend their limbs or knit their broken bodies together with mutations, the Oath-Broken are forced to fashion their own crude replacements: blades sutured to stumps, xenos appendages crudely grafted into empty sockets and ragged armour patched with whatever material the Eye of Terror deems to provide. And yet, woe to the fool who underestimates these dregs of the Black Legion, for an Oath-Broken's desire to again bask in the glories that only Chaos can provide is only equal to his hatred of any who still do." http://warhammer40k....ath-Broken,_The I was fascinated with the backstory of what happens to traitors when the Dark Gods turn their back on their own followers. So I decided to model up a few squads and build a few stories around a motley band of scavengers and killers. After the Photobucket screw job, I thought rather than try to replace every single photo, I'd start over here and tie it to my ongoing participation in the GILGAMESH CAMPAIGN. All hobbyist are welcome to join me conquering the planet for Chaos! (or if you are an imperial scum... i guess you could fight against me, too!) Feel free to PM me about how to join. It is easy and fun. Here is the current campaign Map now. Also, IF YOU LIKE WHAT YOU SEE, PLEASE CONSIDER FOLLOWING THE TOPIC AND LEAVING A COMMENT. IT REALLY HELPS KEEP ME MOTIVATED!!! THANKS! THE OATH-BROKEN Prologue Lord Kraven stared into the vast endlessness of the void from the Bridge of the Battle Barge The Unforgiven. He saw Millions upon millions of planets ripe for plunder to make a worthy sacrifice to the Dark Gods. Nothing had been the same since his disgrace at the hands of the Emperor's Children. How long had it been? Ten Millennia, more? Time had no meaning in the Eye. As his mind drifted on thoughts of vengeance, his vox-unit signaled. "Lord, my divination is complete." Caradoch's voice resembled more of a reptilian hiss than the Genetically modified warrior he had once been. "The Gods have spoken. Gilgamesh must be bathed awash in blood." Finally, was this the redemption he had long seeked? Was it another cruel trick of the Gods to keep him off the eight-fold path forever? It didn't matter. Lord Kraven turned to his first command. "Mark a new heading to the Gilgamesh System. We prepare for war!" LORD KRAVEN “The Dark Gods of Chaos do not care about us. We are simply tools in their endless fight, just as we once served as simple tools in The Emperor’s blind ambitions for Apotheosis. The only difference from now and ten millennia ago, is the veil has been lifted from my eyes. Betrayed by the Corspe God of Terra, and now, discarded from use by the Master’s we turned to, I serve only myself. I will make them pay until I have my status restored. Planets will burn and blood will be spilled until my brothers are avenged." -Lord Kraven’s Canticle of Hate Chapter 1 Verse 1 CARADOCH Caradoch is Lord Kraven's foremost advisor. Although he still maintains a great deal of his warp-born powers, he still strives for the day to return to his former position of power within the Legion. Deep inside the Heavy Battleship Eternal Hunger… Brother Quaress stood guard outside Caradoc’s personal quarters, a bolter clasped in his massive hands. The gold trim on his black ceramite power armor reflected the braziers’ light that lined the corridor’s walls. Two servitor gun drones- amalgamations of corrupted flesh and metal flanked him, their skin twisted and gray where it fused with their heavy bolters hardwired where arms should be. “Lord Caradoc approaches,” they said in unison, flat, robotic voices. The servitors kneeled clumsily and lowered their heads in deference. Quaress detected nothing. His genetically enhanced vision was superior to those lesser beings, and the retinal display in his tactical helm scanned the long hallway in both infra-red and ultra-violet frequencies. The hall was completely empty. “You drones need to be recalibrated. I don’t see…” Quaress did not get a chance to finish his sentence before the braziers lining either side of the corridor flared to life and a cloaked figure in power armor appeared from the shadows. Quaress instinctively raised his bolter. “Rest easy, Brother Quaress.” Caradoc’s voice washed over him like a sweet melody and he lowered his bolter almost as if in a trance. Caradoc shared the same pattern of power armor and a rich embroidered robe flowed from his shoulders to the floor. He carried a wicked power glaive that burned with a blue warpfire along its daemon steel blade. Caradoc’s right hand had begun to harden and transform over the years so that now it resembled more of a chittonous anvil of volcanic rock. One of many blessings from the Dark Masters. “That was quite the entrance,” Quaress said stowing his bolter. “Forgive the theatrics Brother.” Caradoc’s face was concealed by a hood and a vale of golden chainmail. Quaress felt sure that Caradoc was smiling behind it. He was smart enough to know the sorcerer was displaying just a minor demonstration of his many powers. “And what of my guest?” “The prisoner is prepared as you requested. He awaits… your audience.” Brother Quaress wasn’t exactly sure what fate awaited the Loyalist they had captured on the surface of Thraxian IV, but he knew from eons of combat it would not turn out to be pleasant. “Excellent work Brother Quaress. What we are about to embark upon will ensure our places in the Canticles of Hate. This Astartes warrior is but the first step.” “Death to the False Emperor!” Quaress thumped his fist to his chest. “Only if he should be so lucky.” Caradoc waved his free hand at the door and it swung open into the chamber behind Quaress. “A final word of warning brother.” “I fear nothing, Caradoc,” Quaress said. “Your bravery is commendable and serves Lord Kraven well. Just remember no matter what you hear, no matter what the dark voices whisper or promise, do not enter my chamber until I return to you. I would hate for you to suffer… like poor Brother Castus.” Brother Castus had been particularly ambitious in courting the favor of the dark Gods and the Gods listened generously heaping powers upon him until he devolved into a hideous spawn, stark raving mad and mutated beyond recognition. Unleashed upon the populace of Thraxian IV, the creature had scurried off into the wilderness never to be seen again. After ten-thousand years of endless war, Qauress knew there were worst fates than death. The Lord Executioner was listening to the reports provided by his Lieutenants and allies: a lot of good news indeed as the main objectives were about to be reached on time. Oghmios Asamon was the last to speak. Normally, Arius Draken would not give much credit to a Sorceror's input but the Thousand Son was reliable and always tried to provide the clearest information. "Arius, I see a blade in the Shadow, I see an outcast seeking vengeance. He will come to you and pledge himself and his Legionaries to our cause." Welcome to the War Host Eldrick!! Hive Gilgamesh is ours to burn so come and take as many souls as you wish... Awaiting for your roll call to indicate you sectors for future insertion. -Celtic_Cauldron Lord Kraven scanned the war deck of The Unforgiven. His warriors stood proud and defiant despite the endless millenias of war since that long ago day on the ramparts of the Corpse God of Terra. "My Lord, our Heavy Armor is ready to carve a path for insertion of the ground troops." "Excellent. Consult with Lord Arius and deploy accordingly for the meantime." Lord Kraven voxed Brother Vo-tech,"Initiate the awakening protcols for Brother Saarlac and Brother Konner. Their might will be called upon in the coming battle." BROTHER KONNER BROTHER SARLAAC "The first time I died, I died on the blackened ruins of Maeleum. Three Emperor's Children surrounded me. In my prime, it seemed a fair fight." The Night Lord was staring at Lord Kraven's Herald... The Emissary was there, standing proud among the many warriors forming Draken's retinue. "Tell your Lord and Master, his armoured speartip is engaged in the vicinity of the Arbites'Strongholds. Their contribution to the War Host success will be decisive..." KRAVEN'S WRATH Bathed in the blood of thousands of sacrifices, Kraven's Wrath serves as the dread Lord's personal combat command vehicle. The Machine Spirit has been replaced by a malevolent spirit of the warp known only as the Ven'yr. Its treads are coated in the dust of crushed skulls and bones of its victims. BROTHER VO-TECH Lord Kraven watched with dismissive calm as Votek slit the throat of the 1000th and final sacrifice upon the ancient hull of the battered Land Raider Gloria Nox. The Mechatendrils fused to Votek's spinal column lifted and discarded the corpse pitching it over the side of the hull like so much rubbish. "Well?" Kraven asked. "The Loricatus Pattern is unfamiliar to me, but the Warp Spirit is pleased with your offering, my Lord. It will serve you in the coming battle." "And the transports?" "The tech thralls are retrofitting them with the proditor armor we uncovered from Canadus Prime." "Excellent. The Purge will kneel to me and swear The Black or die for their arrogance." "Oderint dum metuant!" said Votek thunmping his fist to his chest. "Yes, my brother, Let them hate as long as they Fear" THE UNFORGIVEN They were at Kraven's side at the fall of Maleum. They made blood oaths and swore that day, they would not rest until every last Emperor's Children lay dead before their boots.
  7. Hello. I’ve decided to start a Chaos force. I really like the black and gold colour scheme for Black Legion so want to use them as the basis for an army (plus Abaddon is badass!) I’ve bought a squad of Havocs and a unit of Chaos Space Marines to start with. Now, I intend on running 2 units of Havocs. One with 4 Lascannons and one with 2 Reaper Chain Cannon and 2 Heavy bolters. Is that a good idea? Or would the heavy weapons be better included with the Marines squads? Also how should I arm the Sergeants? All help would be great as I’d like to crack on with building and painting them up! Nothing like a new project.
  8. I've been looking at my stalled Crimson Slaughter army project and thinking of switching them to Black Legion as a side project to my Death Guard. With the Chosen now being only 14 points each, is it even worth taking normal marines now? I've got 3 Cultist squads I can fill as Troops choices, and looking at the differences between Chosen and normal CSM squads, it just doesn't seem worth it. I've got two 10 man squads made entirely from Dark Vengeance Chosen, that was originally just going to be normal marine squads. Now it just seems like making them Chosen squads is the better option. I normally don't really pay attention to points optimization as I don't play competitively, but this is one of those few rare times I notice it. Each squad of 10 is made with the Power Fist/Bolt Pistol Chosen as the unit Champion, and then 9 Bolter Chosen, two of which have been converted with special weapons from the Raptors box. One squad has Plasma Guns, the other Meltaguns. I was thinking of running them each in a Rhino, with a third 5 man Chosen squad (my original Chosen squad) with Power Axes, with the Land Raider with Lord (Kranon) and Exalted Champion (Draznicht). Thoughts?
  9. Hey guys, A very quick battle report here. I apologize in advance as my Black Legion testing has been largely done with proxies so these pics are a little on the ugly side... but I sold most of my Black Legion and will have to proxy a lot of this. The Game: - Maelstrom Objective X (You can't discard secure objective "X" and your opponent can always steal it.) - 2,0000 points. - Admech : Knight 2 priests, 3 of those big robot things with fists, and shooty stuff. And a priest warlord. Onagar Dunecrawler, a squad of shooty Skitarii and a squad of the assaulty dudes with multi wounds and tasers. Dunestriders (tall walkers?) are infiltrating as well. A 3 man squad of Grav cannon dudes, and a 3 man squad of Plasma Cannon dudes. - Black Legion: Abaddon w/ 5 Shooty Terminators, Sorc in Termie armour Questoris Knight - very shooty variant (my fave variant so far) Baledrake 3 Oblits 3 x 10 Culitsts (one squad has 2 flamers) 3 x Spawn http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_9960/gallery_2760_9960_96734.jpg +These are Abaddon's forces. Sorry for the mismatch of various models. + http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_9960/gallery_2760_9960_36925.jpg + I got tired of proxying Abaddon so I did a quick conversion. I honestly don't know if it's worth painting it up. I've been saying for a year he's getting a new model and.... still waiting. So I may be forced to paint this up. + Early Game: - I go first, Admech fails to steal the initiative (for once!) - Baledrake zooms up, takes 1 flame shot at Skitarii, goes to do a dual assault into Skitarri and the Onagar Dune Crawler (the shots on these things is insane I had to tie it up). My Baledrake.... takes 6 WOUNDS in OVERWATCH. Stupid bird can't even dodge a wrench apparently! - I commit to the Alpha Strike: Abaddon the Termie Sorc, 5 Termies all come in from reserves right in the middle. I also put the Oblits just to the outside flank of the ruins to stay within Abe's 6" circle of love. (I drew objective 2 which was in the ruins). This is where everything goes terriblly for Abaddon and the funky bunch: 1. Abaddon orders the Sorc to cast Warp Time on him.I successfully cast it, and Abaddon moves closer to the trio of Huge Robots (Castellans?) and their Techpriest. They are no slouch in CC and I know this from past experience.... BUT, I know I took the Khorne Icon on the 5 man termie squad to help out in Close Combat.... Truly it even pains me to type this.... 2. The Teriminators unload all kinds of hell... 2 Plasma combi's, meilta combi, Autocannon into the Knight, while the Bolter part of the combi is shooting 4 shots each into his robots! 3. Termie Sorc unloads Plasmas as well into the Knight. Combi bolters into robots. 4. Abe Unloads his Talon into Robots. 5. Obliterators unload magical crappy shots at Robots (S7, AP1, D1) Thank you fickle powers of the warp... how I love Chaos Random Gods! All of this is within Abaddon's circle of love. Just outside the circle of love, my Questoris Knight unloads Storm missiles, dual Battle Cannon and Avenger Gatling into the Knight. The good news is the Knight takes almost nearly half of its hullpoints! (one short of crippled stats) The Bad news is Abaddon makes his charge, swings a way at the robots, at T7 I elect to use Drachnyen because of the D6 bonus which I get 5, for 11 attacks + False Emperor bonus.... that's a lot of hits.... but I could not roll 5's to save my life. Abaddon kills one robot and 2 wounds on another one. Abaddon took a wound in overwatch, and 3 more wounds from robot fists which apparently hurt pretty bad. All in all this is quite full of fail.... now for the big mistake.... Admech Turn: - He draws cards, juggles his positioning, and withdraws the Castellan robots and priest from Close Combat.... wow.... then it occurs to me... I completely forgot to charge (with re rolls) my Terminator squad into the Castellan robots to help Abaddon! - Abaddon takes all available shots from the Plasma Cannons, and Grav Cannons in the face and he is blow to pieces several times over until all you can see is that top knot sticking out of the burning debris that was his armour. - The Black Legion Terminators watch on in horror as the Admech Knight unloads into them, and they all die but one (with the assault cannon). That last Termie gets sliced to death by the Admech Knight in CC. A brutal first turn. The Black Legion had lost their Alpha Strike (which quite frankly did very mediocre). I had lost the re-roll aura and my CC ability was greatly diminished.... Black Legion had no reason to go on, and the Culitists were all considering running off with the Spawns and getting married. It looked bad. Mid Game: - I am in the lead and this largely because of the Cultists squatting on objectives in my zone, however in a very, very bizarre twist of fate, the Obliterators are preventing the Admech from scoring by simply refusing to die....Granted the Admech didn't put much attention into these fools, as they couldn't damage anything. - The brightside of this is the Questoris Knight is undamaged, it was time to poke his head out entirely and be extremely aggressive.... http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_9960/gallery_2760_9960_282579.jpg http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_9960/gallery_2760_9960_429663.jpg + The Culitsts are threatened by flanking Skitarii close combat units, and the 3 Dunesrtiders.... amazingly the Spawn came to the rescue. One died to shooting but the others didn't seem to care, and they absolutely butchered the Skitarii to my amazement. Then they rolled into the Dunestriders, and killed one, while leaving the survivor at one wound. The Cultists watched on in horror and amazement as the Spawn start some strange Chaos ritual with the dead skitarri.+ - The Baledrake continues to harass. It isn't killing much, but the claws keep damaging the Dune Crawler wound at a time. It's a slow motion slap fight, but the Dune Crawler can really do damage if left unchecked. http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_9960/gallery_2760_9960_535039.jpg + The Questoris Knight rolls in. The Terminator sorc has escaped death in the middle of the ruins while the Renegade Knight finally kills the Admech Knight from shooting. + (with some vital wounds taken off the Admech Knight by Smite from the Sorc too)+ http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_9960/gallery_2760_9960_220278.jpg + The middle was still contested by a very annoying Techpriest who kept killing the best of my "Legion"... but they were fine cultists. Never underestimate the power of soiled underwear and a strong belief in a dead Despoiler. + Late Game: - The Admech rush towards the Cultists dies down thanks to the Spawn and the Obliterators shoot again and do squad, but they roll into the close combat against the Skitarii Rangers. - In the middle (above picture) it was getting ugly. We both had very few models, but the middle represented serious points for both of us. You can score "Defend Objectives" on your opponents turns so I kept throwing chaff into the middle, but I had run out....the Techpriest shouldn't be underestimated. He kept shooting into CC and hacking down cultists with bad hygene and worse weapons. I would be forced to put the Sorc into harm's way. - The points were well in Black Legion's favour at this point. The Obliterators kept preventing scoring... and while they would kill next to nothing, they kept tying up stuff, and refusing to die. After the death of the Baledrake, it was up to the Obliterators to keep firing at the Dunecrawler and in the 5th turn they would finally roll decent dice: S9, AP1, D3, and kill it. - The Spawn were pure beast mode. Their hits are truly punishing but it is a dice luck heavy unit requiring good rolls to get decent volume of attacks. Still the right side of the table was firmly in Black Legion's hands. - With the Admech Knight dead, the Admech put all fire power into the Questoris and he was quickly down to 15 wounds (I only recall making one 5+ save which is a 100% more than I typically make) - The middle is still hotly contested.... http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_9960/gallery_2760_9960_585.jpg + The last of the great Cultists go down in a hail of shots in close combat from the Priest. In the Black Legion's turn the middle must be won to seal the deal.+ - The Knight finishes off the shooty Cataphrons (Grav and Plasma units) and then destroys the last robot which was right in front of him. - The Terminator Sorc for 2 Fight Phases has been unable to put a dent in the Tech priest... so he does what Sorcerers do and plays dirty... casting 2 Smites he fries the Priests brain and finally claims the points for the central marker. - Admech tries to retaliate but the Warlord and a few dudes are all that's left (for both sides). - The game points are well in the Black Legion favour but this had almost nothing to with Abaddon unfortunately.... what would have happened if the Termies tried that charge? Would it have made any difference? Did the Obliterators have an absolutely horrible game? Or the worst game you've ever seen? (I still can't figure that one out.) Anyway it was a fun and very interesting game. The "Playa's of the Warp" award goes to: Questoris Renegade Knight, and the Spawns. I say both of them for the reason that I truly thought the game was over when Abaddon and the Termies went down so easily, so quickly and did so little..... the Knight put a HUGE dent in the Admech which was very lucky, but crucial. Yet on the entire right flank of the table, all I had to hold it was Cultists which surely would have crumbled to the Skitarii units and dunestriders if it weren't for the resilient and speedy Spawns. Thanks for checking out this batrep.
  10. Well Hello Peeps I'm Guzzlrr Been playing 40k since about 2007 where i Instantly fell in love with chaos nothing to do with my best mates well timed coercion into the hobby it was the day Chaos were released. Had my own Custom Warband Initially until i read a Storm of Iron which started my love of the Iron warriors. Ive been a Iron Warrior player ever since. My Current armies include : Iron Warriors- oldest force most of these models are about a decade old Recently refreshed my Troops with Mark 4s & Mark 3s the mark 3s especially going quite well with The Iron Warriors this army has fallen victim to attrition. might reinforce with the new chaos Stuff when it drops. Currently the armies i play them most are my most recent : Death Guard - all started when i bought Mortarion an army who sort of needed to be bought after i fell in love with mortys model. Death Guard are fun to play. can be surprisingly fast in certain situations. Thousand sons - like morty Magnus was the birth of my Thousand sons army. I bought Magnus when he released but only started collecting Thousand sons at the beginning of 8th Magnus & Morty Smash Bros list for a wee toruny with friends (i got smashed to bits XD) So Ive got quite alot of painting to do ... and likely will have lots of painting coming up in the future with all this new stuff on the way. got alot of catching up to do so hopefully this will provide some motivation as well as welcome Criticism always looking to improve. so ill stop rambling and show you what Ive been working on this evening. Some of the Marines from Blackstone. been on the to - do list for a while I thinned the black a little too much so the black will need another coat or two but will try to finish that off tomorrow
  11. ALL BLACK ✵ EVERYTHING BLACK Welcome to the latest Incarnation of Malisteen's Black Legion hobby thread! Earlier incarnations can be found here: Black Like My Soul Back In Black You can also find a few extra pictures on my 40k sideblog on tumblr: Minisception "But Malisteen," I hear you asking, "if you already have two threads, why are you starting another?" Well, partially because old threads include models I no longer own due to losing, breaking, or foolishly selling them away, and partially because they're not very well set up to continue after a long hiatus. Honestly, it's become sort of a habit to me to start a new thread when the motivation strikes, and then when it fades go quiet for a couple years, only to start a new thread when the motivation strikes again. But while I'm playing out that habit again, I'd kind of like to make this thread the last one, so I'm trying to set this one up so that I can just update the first post or two with the current state of things after my next inevitable hiatus, then link to the post where I pick up again. We'll see how that goes. The first few posts of this thread are dedicated to an up to date inventory of models that I have at least assembled, as I work on anything I'll update the inventory posts with current pictures. And next time I take a nine month break from the hobby and come back, I should hopefully be able to pick up this thread where I left off and put a link in this first post to the specific post I'm starting from. Least, that's the plan. I also eventually plan to replace this first post with fluff & general army concept, replace some of the generic names in the inventory with specific names, past in some fluff to go with the pictures etc, but that will have to wait until I have time to revise and re-work my old fluff.

I've also been aim to try start my own Black Legion force. It been 20 years since I started collecting Chaos Space marines & it was the Black Legion who started it. Thanks to the new Traitor Legion supplament, I think I will get a small Terminator force to start off my Hound of Abaddon force. My Black Legion force was Khorne heavy.
  13. Hello all, My gaming group is developing a narrative campaign in which we fight over an Imperial world ruled by a knight household. As the resident chaos player in this group, I will be fielding the majority of the heretic forces. I already have a sizable World Eaters army, however the new releases have prompted me to finally give in a build a force of Black Legion, specifically Hounds of Abaddon. I've built the contents of shadowspear and have painted some of it. So far I have not done any conversions. I love these new kits and wanted to have a few units built as intended. However, all of my newer units from this point on will feature some minor conversions. Here are the Chaos Space Marines from Shadowspear and Blackstone Fortress. I am not a strong painter by any means, so black has proven to be a challenge. However, I think these are at least painted to an acceptable table-top standard. I used the loincloths to try and improve my shading and highlighting. http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_13835/med_gallery_100229_13835_302212.jpg http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_13835/med_gallery_100229_13835_761495.jpg http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_13835/med_gallery_100229_13835_622166.jpg http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_13835/med_gallery_100229_13835_63296.jpg I found some unused chosen from the Dark Vengeance box. http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_13835/med_gallery_100229_13835_901526.jpg And finally, a true veteran of the Long War will be returning to the fight once his paint is finished. I am oddly attached to this model. It was one of the first that I ever purchased and I have never been able to convince myself to part with it. http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_13835/med_gallery_100229_13835_857277.jpg C+C is welcome!
  14. Hi! I'm new here and, since I'm more a collector than a player, I wanted to open my first topic in this section. The purpose of this topic is to keep track of the progress of my chaos armies. I'm hoarding lots of stuff to paint and I began to hobby two years ago (less than one year for 40k), so helpful suggestions are welcome (either for painting or converting). Also, I'm not sticking to any specific army list (besides kill team), so I'm including models that right now only serve as decoration or background. Here, the updated state of my armies. DEATH GUARD - Poxwalker horde (16) - Plague marine bolter squad (7) - Plague marine heavy squad (5) - Plague marine CC squad (2) - More plague marines (11) - Lord of Contagion - Poxwalker king - Pestilence giant - Blghtlord terminators (5) - Dreadnought - Bloat-drones (2) - Plague Surgeon - Plague Sorcerer - Noxious Blightbringer - Foul Blightspawn - Epidemius conversion - Plagueburst Crawler - Blight-Haulers (3) BLACK LEGION - Cultists (20) - Chosen (12) - Chaos Lord (2) - Chaos Beastmen (2) - Hellbrute THOUSAND SONS - Rubric marines (10) - Heresy Ahriman - Tzaangors (3) EMPEROR'S CHILDREN - Daemonettes (20) - Medusa/Daemon Princess NOTE: ---- (Can be played) ---- (Assembled/converted but still not painted) Well, I'm introducing the death guard work until this point. I bought some second hand kits of "Know No Fear" box and the "First Strike" box for a kill team. They were latter expanded with the Battleforce box and keeps growing with the Warhammer Conquest collection. Since it also was my first time with a spray primer, I didn't want to risk and began with poxwalkers. I basically followed the GW youtube tutorial, without much focusing on details. I also tried a homemade basing on them. I had a half-painted goblin king model (from The Hobbit) that I bought time ago. I decided to paint it also as a huge poxwalker with a bit more detailed base. I didn't like the scepter, so I'm planning to replace it for a whip. As if he were "hurrying" the slow poxwalkers. I cannot imagine which unit from the DG codex can depict, but it looks good and I liked that model a lot. For the plague marines, I "convinced" one friend to paint me 5 of them (enough for any possible kill team with the pox). I assembled 9 plague marines with diverse weapon options and the LoC, and tried to paint them using the former 5 as models. There are still some details missing (like nihilakh oxide) but there are mostly finished. I'm struggling with the amount of details of these models. I will wait for the rest of plague marines to base them and completely finish them all. Lord of Contagion is also finished. I plan a more detailed base for him. Maybe a loyal model on the floor mixed with some poxwalker or ghoul parts, suffering transformation. Still not sure. Next step is keep assembling more plague marines. From the multipart box I'd specially like the fly head, which will be the head of one of my plague champions. I will need some kitbashing with the monopose models in order to include all weapon options on the box. Also, there are two big models to paint. A resin dreadnought (FW recast I bought on second hand), and a third party model called "Pestilence". It's way taller but looks awesome and fits with the concept of Death Guard. I will change the base for a 40mm one and include some decoration bits. Maybe it could work as a second Lord of Contagion or a custom character for a narrative campaign.
  15. Well I'm going to try to keep this short and sweet: As a main resident Chaos player for 4.27 billion years, I have seen a lot of tournie time and play time as almost every Legion, and model you can think of in the Chaos line. (even Emperor's Children). Coming off having sold my Death Guard tournament army, I am using these recent events as a kick off for Black Legion. For the sake of transparency, yes I have started Black Legion as an army many, many times, but have fizzled because of a few reasons the most major being: Abaddon's mini (I made one, and I accidentally through it in a recycling bin (I think)), The Black Legion rules stunk. Difficulty coming up with a unique idea on painting black (that I enjoy). And finally the main stream chaos models suck, and so do the rules. Well I assume number 1 is resolved with December's releases (or so I pray). Number 2 has to be resolved at some point. Number 3 is largely resolved with the recipe I've developed for my Deathwatch over the past year. And number 4 probably is resolved with Black Fortress as well. (Or at least partially?) I'm taking a big gamble here. I've sold off a lot of stuff and we really don't know -anything- concrete as I write this. But Call of Chaos has forced my hand. So let's assume for a minute this is a real thing, and any additional info anyone can share would be great (so I don't make too big a blunder). What are the most playable, current models that you think -wouldn't- be replaced? (aside from Cultists). For instance, I don't want to paint Oblits. Love the rules, but I have 9 painted metal ones that I despise. Let's be honest, they must be queued for replacement! For right now I'm thinking playable, non-replaceable units include: - Preds? - Rhino's - Terminators??? - HQ's. - Bikes? -Helbrute And obviously the Forgeworld line up. So first things first is the debate of if I actually do the Black Legion thing or stick out Red Corsairs which haven't been very great for quite a while.... Kranon and company are all but dead, so that's out of the question too. My first thought is to build a CSM Kill Team for a campaign and build from there. Otherwise I'm still leaning towards Thousand Sons version 2.0. (with less Tzaangors)
  16. Hey guys, For those of you who don't follow ADB's facebook and stuff, he has started writing the second book of the Black Legion series : The Black Legion. The evil dude is teasing us with stuff like the fight between Abaddon and Sigismund or the taking of the Black. The book is supposed to cover the actual foundation of the Black Legion, the end of the Legion War, the first Black Crusade with awesome stuff like the Triumph at Uralan, the recovery of Drach'nyen... How super exciting is that ?
  17. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=56cnOkQFRwo Part I: The Novitiate The strategium aboard the heavy cruiser 'Narcissus' was silent, save the low thrum of sixty suits of power armor. The high vaulted chamber had once served over three times the number of warriors, though attrition had taken it's toll on the warship's masters. Groups of servitors and hooded slaves move quietly in the background, sticking to the shadows and speaking through a crude sign language. No mortal tongue is allowed to be spoken here. The warriors were divided along squad loyalties, the groups arrayed in loose formations, with a thread of discipline tainting the otherwise casual postures of each group. They stared expectantly at the dais before them, their warlord standing alone with his back to them. He was a warrior-king in every sense of the word. Armored in a hulking suit of sable and gold terminator armor, he stood, like a titan of old, before his supplicants. A crimson cloak, topped with a white and brown animal pelt graced his shoulders, and loincloth bearing Cthonic glyphs declaring his triumphs hung at his waist, flanked by the gold-cast skulls of two imperial heroes. At his feet, his war axe leaned against the railing, the daemonc chained within hanging around the head like a black cloud. His name was Dural Ak'Kabar, and he was the leader of the Warband of the Blinded Eye. He stepped forward, and leaned towards us, his eyes burning with a fanatics zeal. "My brothers," he began, his rich baritone resounding throughout the room, "We make haste for Vigilus, leading the invasion into the corrupt, immoral Imperium! Abaddon, Our Warmaster, has tasked with silencing the mewling welps that inhabit the Beta Gamma V astropathic relay, and of course we will." Our captain smirks, as he brings forth a hololithic display of the station. Low murmurs started among the surrounding legionaries as the defensive units and armament figures began to scroll next to the ghostly building. Even I, not more than six months into my carapace, could recognize the steep odds we faced. Dural nodded slowly, his smile growing. "Yes Brothers, this will be no easy task. But by the Will of the Warmaster it will be done. Besides the mortals there, my warp whisperers tell that the Shattered Suns, may the Plague god curse them, have a presence as well. The named chapter caused low growls and even a few of the oldest warriors to spit upon the floor, their acidic bile fizzing in the silence. My sergeant, Ar'dash let loose a low whistle. The name Shattered Suns had little meaning for me, though I knew that they had thrice thwarted our attempts in operations outside the Eye, though we had returned the favor when the Word Bearers had allowed us to assist in the ambush that nearly wiped out the thinbloods. Truly, my first combat operation would be a war. Dural turned and began to pace, crossing his arms across his chest, "Brothers, Abaddon wants this facility's throat slit before his arrival. We are to bleed the wretches and ensure they have no voice in no less than eighty days. We will not fail the Warmaster again." He looks to my squad, and for a moment, his gaze lingers on me. "Sergeant Ar'Dash, since you and your men performed so admirably the last time we were sent by the Warmaster, your squad will be the tip of the spear for this operation. You will disable the air defenses and void shields, ensuring that the rest of the Warband may arrive unopposed. Plus, this will be valuable experience for Vrijalko's replacement." I heard Jirta let out a low curse, and the strain on Lo'ten's face did not bode well. Our sergeant stepped forward, his teak skin pinched, and his eyes hollow. He bows theatrically, though his anxiety bleeds through the gesture. "Of course my Lord. We would be honored to draw first blood." Behind me, Algol let loose a groan. My stomach dropped as I came to realize that we were not being honored, we were being punished.

  18. Hey again, remaking this thread, it disappeared when the forum vent down, and haven't had the time or energy to remake everything, until now! so all of you that's been waiting I am sorry it took so long back now and will update with the old and the new projects. also lost the friends and such on my profile so you guys know I didn't remove you all from the list did get quite a few subscriptions last time in those 2 days, so if you still like this you can sign up again Balefire Legion is Chaos Space Marines from the black legion, who had the warp intensified their hate for the empire and set it ablaze, the green demonic glow showing out through their eyes and even burning through armour and shown in markings. They keep the dark armour of the black legion but adorn the trims with the colour of bone to match the skulls they collect from the countless victim's of every world they set ablaze. With this thread that was originally inspired by subtle discord and his legion rising chaos thread, I in return hope that my work can also inspire others and him as well. if you haven't you should definitely go have a look at legion rising too. I love feedback and ideas and suggestions, so please feel free to comment as much as you like I really like building and converting, and painting and a bit of playing. now lets get some pictures back up! all of these are still wip so missing highlights and such I know and the hellbrute of course, the auto cannon is magnetized and the power fist is snap fit and moveable http://i942.photobucket.com/albums/ad269/thamier/work%20in%20progress/image-10.jpg http://i942.photobucket.com/albums/ad269/thamier/work%20in%20progress/image-11.jpg http://i942.photobucket.com/albums/ad269/thamier/work%20in%20progress/image-12.jpg then we have my helldrake, wasn't too fond of the original so had to convert it, and since they are supposed to be warped chaos fighters I made it more fighter plane like, opened up a maulerfiend head and stuck a bale flamer in there too for good measure and some crispy loyalist marines on the base, http://i942.photobucket.com/albums/ad269/thamier/work%20in%20progress/image-14.jpg http://i942.photobucket.com/albums/ad269/thamier/work%20in%20progress/image-15.jpg http://i942.photobucket.com/albums/ad269/thamier/work%20in%20progress/image-13.jpg http://i942.photobucket.com/albums/ad269/thamier/work%20in%20progress/image-16.jpg http://i942.photobucket.com/albums/ad269/thamier/work%20in%20progress/image-9.jpg http://i942.photobucket.com/albums/ad269/thamier/work%20in%20progress/image-1.jpg http://i942.photobucket.com/albums/ad269/thamier/work%20in%20progress/IMG_0661.jpg http://i942.photobucket.com/albums/ad269/thamier/work%20in%20progress/IMG_0659.jpg http://i942.photobucket.com/albums/ad269/thamier/work%20in%20progress/IMG_1229.jpg Working on my next helldrake, did some test mock-ups and asked for feedback on them (Edit: removed these because it somehow exceeded the maximum pictures allowed in a thread) also made a couple of chaos spawns, one normal kit and one I converted from a marine. need to get my hands on some freakflex paint for realistic blood for it. http://i942.photobucket.com/albums/ad269/thamier/work%20in%20progress/IMG_1275.jpg http://i942.photobucket.com/albums/ad269/thamier/work%20in%20progress/IMG_1274.jpg http://i942.photobucket.com/albums/ad269/thamier/work%20in%20progress/IMG_1276.jpg and the standard one http://i942.photobucket.com/albums/ad269/thamier/work%20in%20progress/IMG_1273.jpg http://i942.photobucket.com/albums/ad269/thamier/work%20in%20progress/IMG_1271.jpg http://i942.photobucket.com/albums/ad269/thamier/work%20in%20progress/IMG_1270.jpg currently i am working on my deathwing terminators, not having that much money I went for the cheap option and bought a start box, then converted the dark angels to chaos here is the champion http://i942.photobucket.com/albums/ad269/thamier/work%20in%20progress/IMG_1290.jpg http://i942.photobucket.com/albums/ad269/thamier/work%20in%20progress/IMG_1291.jpg will update with more of the old stuff and of course more of the new

"I am the Archfiend, the Despoiler of Worlds, and by my hands shall the false Emperor fall." Abaddon the Despoiler, Warmaster of Chaos Come with me on my journey down the Crimson Path.... Greetings fellow denizens of the Bolter and Chainsword! Time for me to start a new army. I have had this moved into the WIP area as I feel it is more appropriate so you can follow my progress and help me on my journey down the Crimson Path like only you can. Many, many years ago in my youth, I had a fledgling Chaos army (well, mostly the cool models), and have always swore I would go back and start anew as I started it just before I left the hobby. This will be, as the title suggests, a Black Legion army. They have always had great lore, even more so nowadays, and hopefully I will be able to do them justice. My army will no doubt be Khorne heavy (I can't help it, it is a calling.....) but nothing will be out as is the BL way. The Black Legion is all points of the pantheon; a unified Legion in 40k born out of 10,000 years in Hell, all under one banner and mine will refect this. I also have a small collection of Daemon allies which will be making a appearance at some point, but power armour is my thang. Remember though, this is my second army, so as with my first army progress is always slow....and fear not, the Flesh Eaters live still. Enough jibba-jabba, time for some action. First up, and it has to be, The Warmaster: Early wip based on the FW version, added his infamous weapons that he now wields in the 41st millenium, and of course his rather. Large. Top. Knot. Still more GS to add, and he needs quite a bit of tidying up here and there. A character I have always loved; all round bamf who is the first among Chaos and now the first among my take on the Black Legion. Big pictures sorry, but hope you like! http://i256.photobucket.com/albums/hh190/MidnightRunner81/DSC04239.jpg ^^the not very nice looking stain on the box is SUPER GLUE!! http://i256.photobucket.com/albums/hh190/MidnightRunner81/DSC04240.jpg http://i256.photobucket.com/albums/hh190/MidnightRunner81/DSC04241.jpg http://i256.photobucket.com/albums/hh190/MidnightRunner81/DSC04242.jpg http://i256.photobucket.com/albums/hh190/MidnightRunner81/DSC04243.jpg He big, but then he is The Boss TM http://i256.photobucket.com/albums/hh190/MidnightRunner81/DSC04235.jpg To see the finished version, please hit page 19...... .......but don't forget to have a look at the stuff in between
  20. So I've been following a number of Blogs for a while and using Google searches for inspiration for many projects, one thing crops up a lot in them and that's this community on B&C. Now that's probably not a surprise since when I first started blogging I found KrautScientist's amazing Eternal Hunt and Have been hooked ever since. Now most recently it was his imperial Knight and links through to Tibbs forge that meant when Forgeworld released rules for Chaos I simply couldn't resist starting my own. So having pinched ideas from many of you guys and a chat with DragonLover about the community I think it's only fair I share the Knight and even give some sneaky advance pics that I've not posted on my blog yet. Starting with The Knight warden Kit I've decided the first Knight of Black Ruin will be a Khorne Daemon Knight. The initial stages began with lots of research into pose and ides, I won't repeat it all here as I want to get on with the pictures, but my Blog covers my starting point in detail if people are interested. However after going over Tibb's Forge and the posts on leg reposing of Queen Bee I made my first move. http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_11374/med_gallery_88567_11374_616895.png Once this was done for both legs it was a fairly quick process to get the parts ready for assembling, then I used the Freeblade Game Trailer to help design the pose. Its great to be able to see a Knight stomping round and really get a feel for how it would look mid pose. This is what I came up with. http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_11374/med_gallery_88567_11374_63418.png With such a significant repose of the legs I'm going to need to do something with the pistons, however unlike Queen Bee I don;t have to worry about all that pesky realism thanks to cheeky warp smithing so this was the Knight right leg after the first bout of green stuffing. http://bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_11374/med_gallery_88567_11374_99313.png It's had a fair bit more greenstuff applied since. Once I've written up my blog post about the pose I'll dig through the photos of the legs details so you guys can be the first to see.
  21. Well i took me quite some time to post some pics of my minis in these hallowed halls. I started my Word Bearers several years ago (around the time of the 4th edition Codex) and they have been a project that has developed since then. I have a nasty habit of allowing myself to be far too easily distracted. As a result many of my marines are in a kind of 'painting limbo'. Almost finished but not quite. This is the main reason i have decided to start this thread in the WIP forum. Hopefully it will give me the motivation i need to continue building on my WBs and their allies. Thanks These Possessed are actually the first minis i painted for the army. Sorry about the poor photo quality. http://i1122.photobucket.com/albums/l522/kizzdougs/DSCN0170.jpg?t=1308475920 My Berzerkers were the second squad i painted. As soon i got my hands on the Berzerkers kit i knew i had to fix the old and out of date arms and weapons. For this i used a combination of CSM and marauder arms with the newer CSM weapons. http://i1122.photobucket.com/albums/l522/kizzdougs/DSCN0109.jpg Flamer havocs. http://i1122.photobucket.com/albums/l522/kizzdougs/DSCN0178.jpg http://i1122.photobucket.com/albums/l522/kizzdougs/DSCN0179.jpg?t=1308473468 My Dark Apostle 'true scale' attempt. http://i1122.photobucket.com/albums/l522/kizzdougs/P1010316.jpg?t=1308473795 I intended to give the Apostle a terminator body guard...but got side tracked by A D-B's Blood Reaver...and so i have just made a start at a 'true scale' NL. http://i1122.photobucket.com/albums/l522/kizzdougs/DSCN0144.jpg Anyway thanks for looking
