Armies played


  1. A while back I experimented with some new Space Marine paint schemes and found one I liked. I just was happy with the one I had originally chosen. I finally let loose the arrow to land where it may. Now at this point I have a conundrum. Is the red bolter housing too busy; should I go with a more neutral off-black? The squad and chapter markings are going to be red, if that makes a difference.
  2. I thought I'd share my Chaos army and various WIP things, hopefully to motivate myself to get some more painting done! I have a decent sized Iron Warriors army, as well as a goodly number of Thousand Sons, which I'll get pictures of later. My current projects are a start up Emperor's Children Warband, and a force of The Cleaved. The Cleaved: I made this Plague Marine years and years ago when I had a spare blob of Green Stuff. The armour was a test piece for the new foundations, its straight Dheneb with a heavy devlan wash. He got some nice armour scores, and some weeping joints I abandoned them for a very long time, until the release of the new codex, whereupon I made a couple of plasma gunners to come later. I also have 5 of these guys that will be geting the cleaved treatment. My very first tank, well over 10 years old with an awful splotchy (but thin) nurgle paint job, back when the mark of Nurgle gave your vehicle +1AV all round. Rather than give it to the Iron Warriors, I've honoured it's heritage and dedicated it to the cleaved. The marine on the back was originally an ultramarine, but the blue wouldnt look good with the colour scheme. Green, however would, and seeing as there will probably be a few new DA players soon...and also to annoy Skink a little. The Nurglings on top need some detailing, as well as a few other bits and bobs, but I consider it table worthy after a weekend's work. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- With the new codex, I jumped at the chance to finally get some Slaaneshi marines under my belt. Noise marines with an 80's hair metal vibe. I wanted a full Sonic blaster squad, buy only had one and the blastmaster, so time to make up some stuff: Dude doing a squealy blaster solo, and regular blaster dude. You cant quite see the detail, ut they have hides/skin GS'd onto their leg armour, and regular dude has GW barbed wire wrapped around his thigh. Blastmaster and DeathKorg. You cannot have a band without a synth, so this guy got made up. The idea is that the bolter fires, gets some funky rhythm attached to it as it goes along the barrel, then hits the opponent with some music that they've probably never heard of. Noise Champion: Since squad leaders cannot currently have blasters, and in the hope that they can someday, I made something in between a combi bolter and blaster, the backpack (from the classic NM) and belt amp can also double as a Doom Siren. Smile:
  3. Hi team. So a few years ago I had the beginnings of a WE 30k force that then got parked as I was distracted by renovating the house and 40k marines and orks. As with a lot of others, the release of the Heresy 2.0 box set has tempted me back to 30k and it was an obvious choice to expand my existing force. Out of the mk6 marines in the box set I've made a 10 man plasma support squad and a 5 man melta support squad. A 10 man tactical squad which I intend to expand to 20 man. I've also started a despoiler squad, but lack of a ready chain axe supply was holding me back. I do have some Kromlech ones that I quite like. I like the Kromlech arms too. I then took the plunge (and financial investment!) to make a shapeways order and got a load of chainaxes, some falax blades and big hammers (and some arms) so I could make some rampagers. For the rampager bodies I'm using the Tortuga Bay "space gladiator" armour and I also ordered jump packs from them. The models are excellent. Also on the assault-focused drive I've also built a 10 man Legion Despoiler Assault squad. For these I used a mix of bits - mostly Khorne Bezerker legs and bodies. I also have a 10 man breacher squad, dreadnoughts x2 with one to make and a Spartan and one more to make. As always I'm prioritizing all the fun stuff to paint and the troops are being left behind! Pics: First 6 Rampagers, complete Depoiler Assault squad and FW Breachers from my original collection and 2 dreads (new plastic and original FW) (sorry pics are poor - just on my phone).
  4. Hi I’m Casual Heresy, and I’m a hobby butterfly. And that’s okay. Afternoon all. A combination of the forum upgrades and downtime from catching Nurgle’s blessing (covid) for the first time means I’m finally going to start the WiP log I’ve always meant to start. I love space marines of all types so always have multiple projects on the go. Currently, I’m focussing on Black Templar reinforcements for the August Throne of Skulls at Warhammer Workd with heresy era ultramarines in the background. But various other armies and one off projects will pop up over time. Currently I’m about to finish the first of two Redemptors for my Templars, and a Contemptor I finished yesterday is waiting on tufts. After that there is only Grimaldus and his boy band, a Primaris Techmarine and Castellan to go.
  5. I am a lesser son of greater fathers. I am the descendant of men who carried the human race from its infantile cradle to the mantle of supremacy across the galaxy. I am the son of warriors whose tread shook the stars and whose fury shattered civilisations, whose courage turned back the shroud of Old Night, and whose honour has served as an example for generations since passed, and for those yet to come. I am the last in a long line of warrior-heroes who have left their indefatigible mark on the course of human history, and who will be revered forever more across the ages as legends. And rightly so. Yet I am no legend. Nor am I a hero. I am the last of my brothers and the most fallible of them all. I am the sole survivor, the outcast, the lone wanderer who stood, paralysed, as his brothers were cut down and murdered by those who should have been our kinsmen and shield-brothers. My sin is that I live, while those who were far worthier than I, far nobler and doughtier men, lie dead. I am a lesser son of greater fathers, and by what authority is vested in me by the Primarch and by the Emperor, beloved by all, I swear I will avenge my fallen brothers and reap such a tally amongst their murderers that I might stand as an equal amongst my brothers in the afterlife. -from the journal of an unknown battle-brother, XIIIth Legion 'Ultramarines', company and Chapter unknown _____________________

    After I got my LE Codex I made sure to to give the Librarian his proper due.
  8. Greetings Bearers of the Word, Does the Diabolist gain preferred enemy on shooting attacks? The text in Horus Heresy book 5 states "The Diabolist gains the daemon special rule and preferred enemy added to all their close combat attacks (in addition to any other weapon effects)." Does the text in the brackets mean he also gains preferred enemy on shooting attacks? - or solely during combat?
  9. Been taking a break from posting here, moving to Instagram instead, since my hobby ADHD makes it kind of incoherent to keep a log. Now, however, with the release of GWs best models in years (subjective, but hey), it seems I'm again on track to actually produce some kind of coherent, and maybe even playable, army again. So, already finished after months of slogging progress, the Warlord Titan 'Incantamentum Mori': Kind of rusty with the forum posting skills, so hope the images worked out alright. Next up is a banner of two Cerastus Knights, one is 95% finished so should be up pretty soon, fingers crossed. Feels so weird completing a model in a morning after this humongous beast of a kit. Cheers, BTB

  11. Hello all, I'm dipping my toes back into hobby stuff after a decade or so and want to put together some 30K era Blood Angels - specifically late-Crusade era. This is mostly going to be a model/painting project (if I can still remember how to hold a paintbrush) but I also want them to be useable in game, just in case I decide to start gaming again. The plan is to start with a MK III squad (with Forge World shoulder pads) and then look into some vehicles, characters. While I can obviously use vanilla marine rules for them in 40k games, can anyone give me any guidance on special Horus Heresy Blood Angels rules? IIRC the Forge World Retribution book has some Blood Angels rules, but I'm unsure as to whether they have been supplanted by anything later? Have the Army of Darkness books supplanted this? Want to be certain before I drop £££ on one of the books! Other than that, are there any decent resources on 30K Blood Angels out there that people know of? Other than reading the occasional Black Library novel I'm fairly behind on what is new with all things GW.
  12. Greetings! With ETL coming up, I've decided to start my own thread for my Dark Angels collection. Quick bio first, I've been doing GW stuff for the last 20 years or so. First & main love was WHFB (RIP), but ever since reading the early 2000's WD Index Astartes articles I've been following the 40k fluff closely. Main interest here is Heresy & 30k, but 40k is also close to my heart. In the 41st millennium (we think), my interest has always been with Dark Angels. The First Legion, the ultimate grimdark Chapter, with a cool colour scheme and lots of variety to boot! At the moment, I'm finishing up a demi-company (5th) of shall we now call them Old Marines. In the pipeline are also a 1st & 2nd Company Detachment, and the second half of the now partially reconstituted 5th Company comprised of Primaris Marines, who will keep their head down and take enemy fire for the team if they know what's good for them. On the 30k side I have a scattering of Ultramarines based on the Calth box (mainly because it will be a while before we have proper Dark Angel Legion rules), but after buying the Prospero box I also modelled up some 30k DA. In 40k terms, can be used as unidentified renegade marines, probably from 7th Legion heritage or some such nonsense. I'll be posting pictures as I go along, and share perhaps a battle report every six months or so when I get a game in.
  13. Hey there We are the Legions Reborn project, an alternate universe of the Horus Heresy. We have many of our new Legions, but we are still looking for more. To be specific, two loyalists, and a legion dedicated to Nurgle himself. Do you have an idea for a legion loyal to the Emperor of Mankind? One who will stand shoulder to shoulder with the true defenders of mankind, bravely defying the Warmaster Farron as he sells his soul to Chaos. Then get in touch and send us an application? Or are you more nefarious? Does your Legion venerate a much more ancient power, dedicating itself to the Plague Father with the intent of bring Nurgle’s blessings to the followers of the false Emperor? If you wish to side with the Warmaster Farron, get in touch and pledge your allegiance. Currently the 2nd, 18th and 20th Legion spots are open. We hope for this to be a long-term project, so will require some commitment both on the Facebook page putting out lore, and on the Discord discussing ideas. If you have an idea for a theme for your Legion, but aren’t sure if it will work properly, or if it is already in use, message us and we’ll help you out. If you’re interested in applying, message us at thelegionsreborn@hotmail.com, or on our Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheLegionsReborn/ What we’ll need from any applicant is the following: Legion Name: Legion Number: Legion Theme (If important): Legion Loyalty: Legion Fighting Style: Brief Summary of the Legion: Brief Summary of the Primarch: Even if you don’t want to apply, go and check out our Facebook page or ask us questions about the current Legions. The Star Guardians
  14. Welcome to the Legions Reborn Project So what Is the Legions Reborn? Myself and 17 others are working away, creating a new timeline were the 18 existing legions are replaced with 18 of our own. Though the main focus is lore were working away on models, rules and art. What can you expect? We will be posting about everything in this new universe, from general lore about the legions to small stories about characters and events. Many in the project hope to share with you models we've created for the project as well as rules we are developing. We want your help We are working with a complex universe with tonnes of lore, there will be things we've missed or plot points that might not make sense. We would love feedback so we can improve the overall project and create a more interesting universe.
  15. Echoes of Solitude A log of the 209th Company, 5th Fellowship, XVth Legion Astartes ++++++++ With a pulse, a rent in reality opened up, unnatural energies spilling through the wound in space, tendrils searching, reaching, like a leviathan for its prey. From this chasm came a single ship, its armor pitted and torn, cracked ruby plate a far cry from the majesty it had once held. Its great spires, which had earned it its name long ago, bore deep scars, some sections entirely blackened and gutted by years of warfare. What it came upon was not unusual- thousands of ships jostling for position of primacy the norm over such an invaluable world- it was what they were doing that was unusual, giving pause to the silent and nervous crew aboard. Hundreds of slate-grey and steel battleships surrounded the home-world, while dozens of others, clad in plate much like their own, desperately sought to break the ring of fire and steel. Scores more lay adrift, broken, shattered like glass figurines, while a final few fought hard, cutting the enemy deeply, but they were ultimately doomed against such a fleet. The view was only reinforced by the appearance of it. Hrafnkel; A world-killer, the Ferry of the Headsman. Its brutal frame encompassed all around it, dwarfing the smaller crimson fleet, their deaths assured at the introduction of this last villain in a tragic opera that should have never seen the light of the stage. At this visage, the newcomer, known amongst the Empire as the Katmandu, unmasked its guns, resolved to die alongside its kin-fleet. It set its sights on a destroyer group that was headed its way, gun-crews furiously unshrouding their cannons and loading their torpedoes. As they hove into range, it unleashed its fury for just a moment, the hammer-crack of macro-cannon batteries sounding but once before falling silent once more. The destroyers, confused and wary, held back, careful to avoid any mistake that may cost them their lives. They waited, startled when the Katmandu turned and fled, but glad, the jackal-captains sounding war-horns in pursuit of their prey. They followed until the Katmandu vanished, slinking back from whatever realm it had once come from. The destroyers turned away, cheated from their kill, cursing the cowards onboard. As the battle raged on, the Katmandu was forgotten, a sad footnote in the violent drama raging above the world it called home. A world named Prospero. ++++++++ http://i.imgur.com/LOFWPNH.jpg?1 -Legionary Fytaer Akhaman, 209th Company, XVth Legion Astartes ++++++++ Hey guys, welcome to my new log, Echoes of Solitude, covering the XVth Legion Astartes. I know I jumped on the coming bandwagon of Wolves and Sons, but couldn't help myself. I fell in love with the XVth after seeing the FW display, and some board-members logs (Looking at Athrawes here...), and couldn't resist the ruby-red glory of the Thousand Sons. I'm hoping to change some things up from my IVth Legion, who i'll continue working on, but more slowly now that they're almost done. The 209th will be a slower army, and much smaller than my ~5000 points of IW, but will really encapsulate a part of the lore that I haven't seen very often (although if anything comes to mind, please shoot me a link.) Anyways, please feel free to let me know what you think, and I hope you enjoy the story of the 209th Company- The Remnants of a dead Legion.
  16. Hi everyone! "New" on the forum, been a member for some time, but never posted a thread (maybe not even a comment?). But here we go! So just to get it out there, I suck at updating but I will do my best, since I believe this is the most amount of minis I ever painted in one color scheme (yeah I'm bad at that too xD) But not to drag on, pictures! The first marine, finished except the shoulder guard. IMG_4960 by pAcKiE93, on Flickr More Pictures Cheers!
