Armies played


  1. Well, it's been an awfully long time since I've posted anything of my own, but I'm starting to get a bit more time available for the hobby now. This log is most likely going to be updated sporadically and the background of the force is only vaguely sketched out in my mind, so fluff may be a while in coming. Nevertheless, welcome to my new project log for that most brutal and unrelenting of legions - the Iron Tenth. I leave with you with the first eight members of a Seeker squad, though they are awaiting a fresh shipment of combi-plas with which to destroy the traitor foe:
  2. I am afraid I've caught a nasty case of filthy nurgle-itus! I couldn't resist the new Death Guard Models, I was really inspired by the old Deathguard.org site of Ryan Powell in the early 00's, and thought i'd be really cool to do a CSM force along similar lines in the old legion colours, unfortunately this never really happened and I drifted out of the hobby. I have since returned to heresy era modelling but the awesome new DG range gives me this opportunity - at least until the Emperor's Children are re-done! I wanted to put these guy well and truly in the heresy era, so that I can use them for both 30k/40k i've adapted the base models slightly by de-nurlging them as much as possible. I wasn't a big fan of silly belly mouths and overly 'deformed' tentacles, as I see these as more 'possessed' sort of features. It'll be a welcome change painting up a highly weathered and dirty army after having to be extra neat and clean with my Third Legion pretty boys! Dirty, scruffy Death Guard are just about as far as you can get!!
  3. Hey everyone, one of my new year's resolutions for 2015 has been to devote some more time to a couple of hobby projects that have been sitting on the backburner for quite a while. One of the projects in question is the one that will be detailed in this new thread of mine: My kitbashed Legio Custodes army, the Lionsguard. So what we are looking at here is a small army of Pre-Heresy Custodes, the Empire’s personal bodyguard. I have been in love with the Legio Custodes ever since I read through German WD 112 (from April 2005): Not only did it feature rules for a Horus Heresy campaign, but it also marked the first time I ever saw Dave Taylor’s spectacular Legio Custodes army. There was something about those guys that really clicked with me. And even now, quite a few years later, Dave’s Custodes are still easily one of my favourite armies ever. So the seed was planted, and when I took a at all the fantastic Space Marine kits, my love for the Legio Custodes was rekindled. I wouldn’t even have to work nearly as hard as Dave, since all the cool new bits would allow me to build the models by mostly sticking to kitbashing. So I did a bit of research and discovered some more great Custodes armies (Kaleb Daark’s Custodes thread here on B&C and Hashashin’s blog The Buddy Times come to mind, above all else). And so everything was in place. To make things a little more challenging, I wanted to kitbash the entire army from GW (plastic) parts. I also wanted to explore several different unit types: The iconic Praetorians with their conic helmets as well as Custodes in older pattern Astartes armour (again, a callback to Dave’s army), Cataphractii Terminators, jetbikes and maybe even Sisters of Silence. I started by building a small squad of Custodes Praetorians, using parts from the Grey Knights, Dark Angels Veterans and the Sanguinary Guard (and the occasional Tac Marine bit). I also used heads from the WFB White Lions of Chrace: http://images.dakkadakka.com/gallery/2012/8/3/397563-Adeptus%20Custodes%2C%20Conversion%2C%20Custodians%2C%20Guardian%20Spears%2C%20Kitbash%2C%20Legio%20Custodes.JPG http://images.dakkadakka.com/gallery/2012/8/3/397564-Adeptus%20Custodes%2C%20Conversion%2C%20Custodians%2C%20Guardian%20Spears%2C%20Kitbash%2C%20Legio%20Custodes.JPG http://images.dakkadakka.com/gallery/2012/8/3/397569-Adeptus%20Custodes%2C%20Conversion%2C%20Custodians%2C%20Guardian%20Spears%2C%20Kitbash%2C%20Legio%20Custodes.JPG http://images.dakkadakka.com/gallery/2012/8/3/397570-Adeptus%20Custodes%2C%20Conversion%2C%20Custodians%2C%20Guardian%20Spears%2C%20Kitbash%2C%20Legio%20Custodes.JPG http://images.dakkadakka.com/gallery/2012/8/3/397567-Adeptus%20Custodes%2C%20Conversion%2C%20Custodians%2C%20Guardian%20Spears%2C%20Kitbash%2C%20Legio%20Custodes.JPG As you can see, this recipe allowed me to create a couple of pretty convincing Custodes models. Here’s a look at the whole squad: http://images.dakkadakka.com/gallery/2012/8/3/397571-Adeptus%20Custodes%2C%20Conversion%2C%20Custodians%2C%20Guardian%20Spears%2C%20Kitbash%2C%20Legio%20Custodes.JPG Squad Heraklion One of the Praetorian squads in the Legio Custodes’ elite Lionsguard, squad Heraklion consists of warriors as fiercely loyal as they are accomplished. Clad in the traditional Praetorian plate and wielding an array of mastercrafted weapons, the members of the squad know no goal more important than guarding the life of their Emperor. Leading the squad is Centurio Jastilus Petrarca, a relatively young but exceedingly talented officer. In spite of his young age, the inside of his ceremonial plate already shows an astonishing number of engraved names and titles, earned through great feats and deeds of honour. As my next project, I started building a squad of Custodes in regular power armour. I am not sure whether there is any precedent for this in “official” HH artwork, but the fact that Dave Taylor had also done a squad like that was definitely a good enough reason for me ;-) I tried using different plastic parts to make the armour resemble various, older patterns of power armour that would have been widely used during the Heresy. My background for this squad is that they are basically “field-testing” different marks of armour before they are adopted for mass production for the Space Marine legions (and they sticking to their older armour even after the testing phase is completed, as a way of showing the pride they take in their task). Now I do of course realise that trying to kitbash this squad using "regular" GW plastic parts rather than actual Heresy era stuff by Forgeworld may seem like a pointless (and futile) exercise to many of your, but it was a part of the outline I had set for myself on this project, and also part of the fun First up, a model in armour resembling the Mk. III “Iron” pattern: http://images.dakkadakka.com/gallery/2012/9/7/409516-Adeptus%20Custodes%2C%20Conversion%2C%20Legio%20Custodes%2C%20Paintjob%2C%20Space%20Marines%2C%20Tactical%20Squad.JPG Next, a model wearing armour resembling the Mk. V “Heresy” pattern: http://images.dakkadakka.com/gallery/2012/9/7/409514-Adeptus%20Custodes%2C%20Conversion%2C%20Legio%20Custodes%2C%20Paintjob%2C%20Space%20Marines%2C%20Tactical%20Squad.JPG This next model was rather easy to complete, wearing straight up Mk. VI “Corvus” armour: http://images.dakkadakka.com/gallery/2012/9/7/409517-Adeptus%20Custodes%2C%20Conversion%2C%20Legio%20Custodes%2C%20Paintjob%2C%20Space%20Marines%2C%20Tactical%20Squad.JPG There’s no actual precedent for the next model’s armour design. Still, I think the rather classical, almost "hoplite" look, makes it fit in rather well: http://images.dakkadakka.com/gallery/2012/9/7/409519-Adeptus%20Custodes%2C%20Conversion%2C%20Legio%20Custodes%2C%20Paintjob%2C%20Space%20Marines%2C%20Tactical%20Squad.JPG And finally, the squad leader in mastercrafted armour (actually measly Mk. VII, but that hadn’t officially been invented during the Heresy, so…): http://images.dakkadakka.com/gallery/2012/9/7/409521-Adeptus%20Custodes%2C%20Conversion%2C%20Legio%20Custodes%2C%20Paintjob%2C%20Space%20Marines%2C%20Tactical%20Squad.JPG All of the models in the squad were built using parts from different Marine or Chaos Space Marine kits, with a bit of deft cutting involved in places. Here’s the finished squad: http://images.dakkadakka.com/gallery/2012/9/7/409523-Adeptus%20Custodes%2C%20Conversion%2C%20Legio%20Custodes%2C%20Paintjob%2C%20Space%20Marines%2C%20Tactical%20Squad.JPG Squad Asklepian, “The Artisans” The members of squad Asklepian forego the classic armament of the Legio Custodes and are instead clad in different marks of power armour. But this is no token of shame, for the squad’s honoured veterans are tasked with testing newly developed armour patterns in combat. That is why their armour is highly individual, with many different patterns across the squad. Some of its members are even wearing patterns that were never approved for mass production, yet they maintain their plate with utmost pride, sometimes even further embellishing it. For it is due to squad Asklepian’s diligent work that the legions of the Imperium may be armoured to the best possible standard, and Centurio Kletian Varios and his men take pride in that knowledge. Putting these guys together proved to be so much fun that I decided to add additional models to the squad until every armour pattern from Mk. I to Mk. VI was represented. Here’s a sneak peek at some additional models: http://images.dakkadakka.com/gallery/2013/7/24/520121-Adeptus%20Custodes%2C%20Conversion%2C%20Legio%20Custodes%2C%20Power%20Armour%2C%20Pre-heresy.JPG After having built these two squads, I wanted to add a commander to make the models I had so far “legally” playable as a very small army -- at least in theory ;-) http://images.dakkadakka.com/gallery/2012/10/17/422243-Adeptus%20Custodes%2C%20Conversion%2C%20Custodes%2C%20Legio%20Custodes%2C%20Paintjob%2C%20Shield%20Captain.JPG Shield Captain Fennias Andronicus, “The Old Lion” One of the commanding officers of the Lionsguard, Fennias Andronicus is a veteran of the Legio Custodes: Many are his honorary titles and names, and they cover every inch of the inside of his master crafted armour. Called “The Old Lion”, Shield Captain Andronicus’ age and experience make him a skilled and levelheaded tactician, yet his name is also synonymous with heroism and prowess in combat. When the Legio has to face an enemy on the field of battle, Andronicus leads from the front, relic blade in hand, and becomes and instrument of the Emperor’s wrath. So far for my first post about the Lionsguard. There's more to come -- much more, in fact: Since this project has been ongoing for a couple of years, I have lots and lots of additional models. Sadly, most of them remain yet unpainted, but I hope that I'll be able to change that sooner rather than later -- after all, once Forgeworld gets around to releasing "official" Custodes models, nobody will want to take a second look at my own effort So yeah, thanks for looking and stay tuned for more! And, as always, let me know what you think!
  4. I've fallen into the same problem as a lot of other gamers... there are so many armies I'd like to build and no way to afford them all. Thus, I got to thinking about having one army I can use for any situation - Alpha Legion. I can use them for 40k or heresy, or play traitor or loyalist, all by just shuffling a couple units around. http://fc09.deviantart.net/fs70/i/2014/201/2/a/alpha_legion_01_by_kasumidoll-d7rj0cq.jpg http://fc05.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2014/201/8/d/alpha_legion_02_by_kasumidoll-d7rj0j2.jpg Test color scheme. http://img15.deviantart.net/2670/i/2015/150/2/0/alpha_omega_01_by_kasumidoll-d8vd8i8.jpg WIP on the primarchs.
  5. So, as many of you know, the mighty 6th legionnes Astartes, have been "blessed" by Forgeworld with a mighty praetor with which to lead its legions The model is an embarrassment quite honestly. So in order to re-dress this and give some pride back to the legion, I have created this thread so people can post what a real Space Wolves Praetor, Jarl & Varagyr should look like. Feel free to add some background or go into a bit of detail as to how you made them and lets show FW how its done!! So as the title suggests. Post your Praetors Jarls & Varagyr... 20150413_191214 by Danny Taylor, on Flickr 20150413_191331 by Danny Taylor, on Flickr 20150413_191406 by Danny Taylor, on Flickr 20150413_191443 by Danny Taylor, on Flickr 20150413_191509 by Danny Taylor, on Flickr I made mine using Body: FW praetor terminator Knees: Dwarf shoulderpads Chest skull: Metal Logan Grimnir model Head: TWC kit Axe: WHFB dwarf hammerers/ longbeards kit Wolf: Greenstuff, made a mould from the FW Space WOlves verable dread banner and cut it to suit, then filled gaps with GS fur Pointing hand and SB magazine: GK kit Cloak: paper towel dipped in PVA glue
  6. I made a thing! Teaser: http://i.imgur.com/9VgEdXk.jpg http://i.imgur.com/82nfySG.jpg Thanks to the B+C members from the Black Templar and Chaos forums for encouraging me in the pursuit of an idea. PS. He already killed a witch!

  8. As it says on the tin, I'm still just getting into heresy and am looking at expanding my army, mostly in the troops section. I have 2x10 man tac squads, however they seem to be just decent for sitting on an objective and trying to stay alive for ~110pts. Adding extra stuff puts them into the 130 - 150pt range, where we also have assault and breacher squads. So what troops choices do you rely on in games, just tacticals for cheapness, or despoilers to run up the table? reachers for endurance or assaults for mobility? Or a mix of all? In a 3k point game, what would you be taking? Edit: I changed the etitle from "What are your favourite LINE Troops choices" to What are your favourite Compulsory Troops choices as that better defines what I'm after.
  9. Recently while perusing the W.I.P Forums, I came across Kizzdougs' excellent log, and his CSM to Sons of Horus conversion. So, as is the case with hobby butterfly syndrome I decided to give it a whirl. I have some CSM stuff, and some MkIV stuff so I figured I'd give it a whirl. the results are as follows: Now, he's obviously a Traitor late in the Heresy. But the question is which legion does he hail from? I can see him as a Son of Horus, a Word Bearer, or maybe a Night Lord. What do my brothers in the Age of Darkness think? I'm thinking he will be the first in a small Zone Mortalis force, at least for now. We'll see. Thanks in advance for any comments!
  10. Hi All, In a similar vein to my last post about Breachers, Tell me why you run Vets, and how you load them out. Looking at the points, a 10 man squad is only 25 points more than a similarly equipped tactical squad at base loadout, but the options you have are wide and varied. So what do people do? I've always been of the opinion you should run a couple of tactical squads, as they're core troops. But looking at it closer, and with the Pride RoW, am I missing a trick? Thanks
