  1. Version 1.0


    The old House Hyperion look just isn't doing it, so I thought I'd give it a bit of an update. Included are as many little stripes and crescent moons as I could fit, including a custom aquila, and more, including some reproduced details from other B&C decal sheets. This is a LARGE file, designed for designed to be printed in FULL colour, on 200x330mm paper. Typically using an ALPS printer, or a laser that supports white content. Printing this on traditional clear decal paper WILL NOT yield a final product close to what you see on your computer screen. If you don't have access to either of the above printer types, or a special inkjet, If possible, I recommend using a reputable custom decal print shop (I used Bedlam Creations) to have this printed. It may cost some decent cash, but you'll be happier with the result. The uploaded version is 150dpi which should be fine for most uses. A 600dpi version can be had by emailing PMing me.
  2. From the album: BFG fleet

    Scratchbuild space stations for BFG made from wooden disks/cylinders and various bits, e.g. the antennas & stands are made from paperclips.
  3. From the album: BFG fleet

    A scratchbuild battleship (WIP) which consists of various bits and pieces. E.g. a dreadnought close combat weapon, dreadnought sarcophagus plate, 2nd ed heavy flamer, tau shoulder shield, tau missile battery, tau fusion blaster, frontlights from a rhino, some tank treads. If I could get my hands on one of the plastic kits from BFG, I'd add some weapons to the sides where the 'bricks' are showing.
  4. From the album: BFG fleet

    Theese small ships were produced by FW and could launch fighters.
  5. From the album: BFG fleet

    The side-mounted weapon batteries gave this fregate(?) quite the punch.
  6. Exilyth

    Bfg cobras

    From the album: BFG fleet

    Cobras were squishy, fast and brought missiles.
  7. From the album: 306th Ronarii Rifles

    Just need to seal models but calling these guys finished. The black gloves were stolen from Babylon 5, amazing psychic stuff in that show.
  8. Come one come all! Welcome to my log on the WIP of my HH VII legion forces, and its possible allies within the future. So, as stated above this will be a log on my Fist legion force as it defends terra, and or fighting in hive like cityscapes. Hopefully I will be able to post updates every weekend, and some other updates during the week if time permits. As I've just got a hold of my FW goodness, expect more updates now as im riding straight on the HH obsession train! Now this log is going to focus heavily on fluff as that's the section of the hobby I take most interest in, so if your not into that......well don't say you weren't warned! This is also my first B&C Log, so go easy on me ANYWAYS LETS GET TO IT! Battle Brother Sinjar Leonus: Pict Capture siege of Terra, Center square firefights Seen here in his Mk.2 battle plate (barring his Mk.3 breastplate) Brother Sinjar Leonus is pictured striding through the lower streets of the Center Square hab block of Terra in the days before the fateful assault upon Horus' flagship. Leonus is recorded as being of Inwit decent, and among one of the first legionaries to be selected for full brother honors from said initial pool of recruits. Leonus would be confirmed KIA twenty-seven hours after this pict capture, lost engaged in a deathly hand to hand struggle with three Sons of Horus Reaver assault legionaries while covering his tactical units withdrawal into a more advantageous position. His fighting brutal as he felled one reaver and mortally wounded another. Thanks for takin a peek! Dimitri
  9. I'm currently preparing my Adeptus Mechanicus army (see http://admech.blogspot.com/ for more details) for Armies on Parade. And I wanted some big impressive eye-catching centrepieces - I wanted Knights! Step 1 was to do some research (you can tell I'm a librarian in real life, right?) So I devoured the original fluff and scoured the internet to see how other people had converted their Knights, and gathered all my findings and links into the uber-post here: http://www.bolterandchainsword.com/index.p...howtopic=248882 My plan is to make a complete feudal Knightly household - House Nordcote (named after my mother's family, using their heraldry). In the original fluff there were 7 different types of Knights. For now I'm making 4 of the 7: the basic Paladin, with battlecannon and chainsword the scout Lancer, with battlecannon and power lance the heavy Warden, with carapace-mounted missile launcher and twin gatling guns the anti-tank Crusader, with mini-quake cannon and twin-linked lascannon If I get time I'll add an Errant (meltacannon & powerfist) and a Baron (individualised & fancy suit), but this current list covers a nice spread of styles. I want each type to be clearly distinct, made from very different parts (and stealing ideas from all the coolest Knight models I found on the internet!) But I also want them to share common unifying elements - sentinel-cockpit-heads, loin-cloth-banners displaying matching family heraldry and a matching half-and-half colour scheme. My first challenge was the Paladin, the basic Knight. Here's the Epic models: http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7080/7197290158_7b3b393e5d_z.jpg I made a non-specific Knight model from a Grey Knights dreadknight at the start of this year. With a bit of work, this became my Paladin. Here it is before any changes: http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7065/6946505093_dfeb7be645_z.jpg To update it into a Paladin it needed to have a battlecannon and a chainsword. Later I'll also repaint it slightly, and add the loin-cloth. http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5454/7197290564_33373200db_z.jpg After testing out a few options for the battlecannon I decided that having it fire solid shells is hugely impractical - it'd need an absolutely massive magazine! So I made it into a sort of las-battlecannon instead, firing massive bolts of energy at the enemy. Much more AdMech. The gun is made from a Tau Ion Cannon's rear end and 3 sizes of plastruct tubing. The chainsword was another difficult choice. The giant chainswords people put on their conversions always look a bit unwieldy to me, and cutting out all those individual teeth did not sound tempting... So I went for a spare Ork Killa Kan buzz-saw instead. It's still got teeth, and is clearly different to a powerfist or lance? Everything's magnetised so that I can change it's armament for gaming purposes, but this is what it'll have in my Armies on Parade entry.
  10. Making an Adeptus Mechanicus army is a complex task, normally involving lots of converting & kitbashing. It's helpful to see what other people have done, to get inspiration. This thread aims to help with one specific part of the Adeptus Mechanicus: the Knights. Knights are giant one-man warmachines, that bridge the gap between Dreadnoughts and Titans. Whilst they're a long-established piece of Adeptus Mechanicus fluff, until 2014 they had only seen official models in Epic scale. But lots of people have made 40k scale models of them, and in this thread we'll showcase these. FLUFF & EPIC MODELS Origins & Allegiance (NB: Based on pre-2014 fluff, needs to be edited) The Knights have their origins during the Age of Strife. The Priests of Mars sent out teams settling new worlds, establishing Forge Worlds and so on. They gave technology to the feudal worlds near the Forge Worlds - these feudal worlds became the Knight Worlds. The most popular piece of technology was the Knight, a heavy one-man walker. Using these vehicles the Knights could compete with Eldar Exodites on dragons, Eldar Knights, Ork Stompas and other such threats. Knights are often called up to serve alongside the Mechanicus or the Titan Legions. Some Knights also work directly for the Mechanicus - in the Horus Heresy 'Mechanicum' book there are 3 knights called the 'Knights of Taranis' based on Mars. Knights mostly belong to Knightly Houses. Details of all the official ones can be found here. Physical Description Knights are one-man heavy walkers. They are taller than dreadnoughts (6m tall) and smaller than warhound titans (14 or 15m tall) - the Horus Heresy 'Mechanicum' book describes one 9m tall, whereas some Epic models were as tall as a Warhound although much less bulky. They are mostly bipedal and roughly humanoid, and feature a cockpit resembling a helmet. There are a variety of types, but typically Knights are armed with 2 main armaments (on their 2 arms). Typology & Epic Models Knight Paladins are the most common Knights, armed with gigantic weapons (often chainswords) and a battle cannon. 1991 Catalogue 1995-96 Catalogue (metal) 1995-96 Catalogue (plastic) Knight Errants are a version of Paladins with weaponry better suited to attacking large vehicles - a large melta-based thermal cannon and a power fist. In the 2014 reboot, they just have a thermal cannon and a chainsword.1994 CatalogueKnight Lancers are more high-speed, specialising in flanking enemy positions. They often have very long legs, and are armed with a power lance.1991 CatalogueKnight Crusaders and Knight Castellans are heavier Knights, without combat weapons. Both feature a small quake cannon as their primary weapon. Their secondary weapon varies: Crusaders are anti-vehicle and have twin lascannons; Castellans are anti-infantry and have multi-barrelled autocannons.Crusaders: 1994 Catalogue Castellans: 1995-96 Catalogue Knight Wardens are another type of heavy Knight lacking close combat weapons. They have distinctive for their overlapping armour plates and are armed with two multi-barrelled autocannons and a carapace-mounted missile launcher.1991 CatalogueBarons are the head of feudal households, with personalised and individualised suits. The standard model had a battlecannon and a power lance.1995-96 CatalogueNon-Imperial Knights There are also Chaos Knights, twisted versions of the proud Imperial Knights. GW have only released models for Slaaneshi Knights, pictured here in the 1995-96 Catalogue. The Chaos Daemon Engines like the Defiler (GW website), Decimator (Forgeworld), Forgefiend/Maulerfiend (GW website) and Lord of Skulls (GW website) are all vaguely similar in scale to Knights, but are controlled by bound Daemons rather than people. The Grey Knight Nemesis Dreadknight is a very similar concept, although the Grey Knight isn't in an enclosed cockpit: GW website The Eldar also had Knights, which looked similar to their wraithlords but larger - the humanoid Fire Gale, four-armed Towering Destroyer, and four-legged Bright Stallion: 1991 Catalogue. In 2013 GW released the Eldar Wraithknight - a one-man walker that's almost the size of a titan: GW website The Ork Stompa is broadly similar (a mini-titan), but is a bit larger and not one-man: GW website The Necron Triarch Stalker is a large one-man walker, so roughly analagous: GW website The Tau XV104 Riptide Battlesuit is a similar concept to a Knight, a large 1-man walker: GW website GW'S 40k IMPERIAL KNIGHT MODEL In 2014, Games Workshop answered all our prayers and released an Imperial Knight model. It's huge (6 or 7 inches tall), and bulky, and so beautiful. A proper updating of the Epic model into 40k scale, which fits in beautifully with the Forgeworld Mars Pattern titans. Lots of people have brough them. In this section we'll look at some notable conversions, not at standard builds. We'll examine scratch-builds and alternative kits (and all models made pre-2014!) in the section below. Re-posed Knights Some people have re-posed their Knights, to have them running or climbing scenary. The GW model comes with one-piece legs, but these can be modified: Quindia Studios blog - A mini-tutorial on reposing the front leg to stand on things. JeffTibbetts on B&C - Fully reposed legs and heavy battle damage. Nusquam on B&C - made the legs more upright, less straight. Also cut the helm in half to make a cool gorget-style faceplate. Extra Detailing For some people, a plain GW kit just isn't enough. They have to add extra details... 40k Hobby Blog - with added interior detailing. SpartacusBob on DakkaDakka - a standard build, but with lights! isotope99 at BoLS - a knight being prepared for battle, with full interior decorating and a techmarine busy repairing armour plates. Knight Errants with Power Fists In Epic, Knight Errants had Power Fists. Forgegworld is rumoured to be making one, or some people think that Defiler claws are the way forward, or others are are trying to scratch-build them. Golem Painting Studios on Fb - a full tutorial, using spoons (genius idea!) Koran on B&C - A thread dedicated to scratch-building a powerfist. Knight Lancers/Barons with Power Lances In Epic, Knight Lancers and Knight Barons had battlecannons and power lances. Miteyheroes on B&C - The Baron of House Nordcote has a scratch-built Power Lance (and the head swapped with a sentinel cockpit).Knight Wardens In Epic, Knight Wardens had distinctive overlapping armour plates, twin multi-barrelled autocannons on stubby arms, and carapace-mounted missile launchers. Quindia on BoLS - A standard knight torso rotated more to the front gives a beetle-backed look reminiscent of the old Epic model.Chaos / Dark Mechanicus Knights Although according to the rules Chaos can't ally with Knights, people are making Chaos Knights anyway. Two such houses are mentioned in the background section of the Codex, House Devine (Slaanesh, fell during the Horus Heresy) and House Drakon (Dark Mechanicus, fell more recently). GuitaRasmus on B&C - An evil spikey knight, with a truely terrifying head. GW Metro Centre on Facebook - a bright pink Slaaneshi knight. I love the weapon-tail, just like old Epic Chaos Titans! Andy at GW Oxford on Facebook - two corroded and evil Dark Mechanicus knights. One with a Forgeworld Renegade Psyker instead of a head, another with a Blight Drone head and lots of tentacles! Unknown - a walking Lord of Skulls using Imperial Knight legs. More Unusual Conversions Conversions that don't really fit into any of the other categories. What even is this? Unknown - an Imperial Knight torso on Lord of Skulls tracks... Looks a bit like a Kaban Machine, I guess? And if you've made a walking Lord of Skulls, this is the obvious next step! Brian Slifka on Facebook - a looted knight. Orks will loot anything! SCRATCH-BUILT 40k MODELS Until 2014, GW only made Mechanicus Knight models for Epic, although they made similar models for Grey Knights, Eldar, Tau, Chaos and so on. But they did produce many kits that people converted to make into Knights for 40k - I've collected some of my favourite conversions below! Size-wise, the conversions varied between 4 and 8 inches tall (whilst the official model is between 6 and 7 inches tall). Compare it to other 40k models: dreadnoughts and sentinels are 2 1/2 to 3 inches tall (contemplators are 3); dreadknights, decimators and forgefiends/maulerfiends are 4 inches; the riptide is 6 inches; monoliths are 8 inches to the very top; wraithknights are 9 inches; warhounds are about 10 to 11 inches. The Upright Defiler Probably the most widely-done technique, and for a long time the only one apart from Full Scratchbuilding that was available to someone not wanting to stray beyond GW-only bits. Personally I find them a bit too lanky - they tend to be overly skinny? But they're the best way to get a good amount of height. Hortwerth on Warseer - let's face it, you have to mention Hortwerth! I don't particularly like the angle of his legs/hips though, they look odd. The Damned Artificer on Warseer - another of the great sources of inspiration! I really like his Knight, particularly the curved torso armour. The Hoff on Warseer - the third of the Great Inspirational Trilogy, Hoff's Knight features legs built more like a sentinel (with forward and rear joints) and an excellent beaked head. Loki on Work In Progress - a really scary Chaos Knight! Major Buzzmore here - cool models, dramatically re-posed legs and lovely weathering on the paint scheme. Bad Buddha here - less lanky than many Defiler-Knights, very brutal. Jonathan Willingham on WhiteScars blog - really matches the Forgeworld Mars-pattern Titans. Beautiful work! xeniusascendant on CoolMiniOrNot - A massive beast! An upright defiler with most of a land raider on top, standing 14 inches tall (bigger than a Warhound!) Xanthos on DakkaDakka - Really dynamic model with a sentinel head and Whirlwind missile pods as fists! CommissarKhaine on DakkaDakka - A very tall model, combining defiler and manufactorum bits. Miteyheroes on B&C - The Crusader uses a defiler torso and a sentinel cockpit head. Smaller than most Defiler-Knights. The Blood Slaughterer The torso of a Blood Slaughterer does make a very cool Knight-Titan. Of course, you need to make legs (scratchbuilt or from Defilers or whatever), but it's a great base! King Fluff on the Great Crusade - scratchbuilt legs and lots of great other components. The complete Knight Titan household at the end? Gorgeous. The whole thread is just so inspiring. I love how he rotates the torso round to make a Warden. Miteyheroes on B&C - The Lancer uses the Blood Slaughter torso with defiler legs and a sentinel cockpit for a head. The Dreadknight As soon as Grey Knights came out people seemed to grasp the possibilities of this kit! It needs the least conversion - give it a cool head instead of the stupid baby-walker and you've got a great Knight model! It's on the small end of the scale though. Miteyheroes on B&C - The Paladin is a Dreadknight with a sentinel cockpit for a head. NineBreaker's on DakkaDakka - the cockpit is a bit too Eldar / anime for my liking, but it's very well-done. Xanthos' on DakkaDakka - a Valkyrie cockpit and some massive guns! Brother-Captain Basilus on The Great Crusade - a whole household, 'House Katchar', with great modifications, very dynamic posing and some beautiful battle-damage painting. A baron, 2 paladins and 2 wardens. Pendragon38 on BoLS - interestingly uses a Storm Raven top-turret as the cockpit. Adir on B&C - sentinel cockpit head and massive chainsword arms... Vforvendetta1 on Wikia - a very nicely painted dreadknight, with the babywalker turned into a cockpit. Dave Taylor Miniatures - lovely brass paint-scheme, wonderful lance & gatling gun conversions. But how does it see? The Decimator Forgeworld's Large Chaos Walker. With a slightly larger head it'd be a perfect Chaos Knight Titan. It's gorgeous! It does take quite a lot of sanding to make it plain and suitable for loyalist AdMech, but for the renegade AdMech it's a (machine)godsend. Again, it's a little on the small end of the scale. Forgeworld Chaos Decimator Daemon Engine - the official model on Forgeworld's site. So pretty! Miteyheroes on B&C - The Baron is a sanded-down Decimator, with a sentinel cockpit for a head. The Dreadnought Dreadnoughts are really too small to be Knights, standing 2 1/2 to 3 inches tall rather than 4 to 8 inches. But using sentinel legs can help, and the sentinel cab also then provides a nice cockpit. Magc8Ball on DakkaDakka - a dreadnought/sentinel kit bash. Certainly gives interesting ideas about what could be done! Alexander the Alchemist - a short-and-stout heavy Knight with a sentinel cockpit, dreadnought body, and legs made from bastion lascannon mounts. The Lord of Skulls The Lord of Skulls is a Chaos Super-Heavy, with a humanoid torso on a tank lower body. Some people have added legs to it: Isotope99 on BoLS - a flying Lord of Skulls, with defiler claws as legs and helldrake wings. Agis on Blogspot - another attempt at a flying Lord of Skulls, with legs a combination of scratchbuilding and defiler claws. Quickfuze on DakkaDakka - a walking Lord of Skulls using Leviathan legs. Unknown - a walking Lord of Skulls using Imperial Knight legs. Full Scratchbuilds & Resin Kits Not the easiest route, but several people have made full scratchbuilds or extensive kit-bashes. Some have even made casts of their work, and these turn up for sale occassionally (and normally only briefly before GW takes them down!) Frowbakk on Warseer - barricades and IG tank track guards combine, somehow... Tebrey on Photobucket - a Lancer, Baron and Warden, entirely made from plasticard. Great updatings of the classic models, made to fit in with the Lucius pattern style of titan. See also his Knight Warden on Work In Progress and his Knight Lancer on Work In Progress. Big Daddy on DakkaDakka - seriously old-school, really close reproductions of the old Epic models. See also his French blog Kouzes' paladin - Totally stunning conversion & paintscheme of a Big Daddy Knight. In French. Lordokaos on Livejournal - An old-school resin kit off ebay. AdeptusCustodes on B&C - a very cool scratch-built model, mixing old-school and an almost Contemptor type feel. Cold Moon - several different models here, all closely based on the classic Epic models. http://www.tanksandtrolls.co.uk/40KPaladinTanks & Trolls[/url] - card templates for a Paladin. At 30cm high it's a bit too tall, IMHO, but you could resize the templates? Isotope99 on BoLS Lounge - a hulking beast, built in a warhound/warlord style. All GW parts, including a Shadowsword gun housing as the main body and a land speeder as the cockpit. Painted pictures here. Vitruvian XVII on DakkaDakka - a squat and tough hulking figure. Non-GW Models There are lots of Mecha models out there that can be given a GW gloss and called Knight Titans! Here are some that I like: Musing of a Metal Mind's Warden - a great updating of the overlapping plates and hunched form of the Warden Knight Titan. It's massive though! Zealot Miniatures - clearly meant to be a dreadKnight replacement, but with it's helmet and everything it looks rather Knight titany. There's also a varient with a more robotic head. Warmachine - there are many models in the Warmachine range that look quite AdMechy, and some of the Colossals are pretty good for Knights? DreamForge-Games - their "Leviathan" is a great Knight. They've made him in 15mm scale, 4.5" high, and in 28mm scale, 8.5" high. Which should make people who like their Knights smaller <em>or</em> larger happy! Originally in resin, thanks to a Kickstarter he's now available in plastic and much much cheaper.
  11. Hello new here not sure if it's the right place if not im sorry but I'm in need of some help Resently in my gaming group i fielded a imperial knight for the fist time the others where Quit miffed after the game and now they won't play Against it as it's op So now i need some advice on how to kill off Said knight to try and help Them fight it Any help much appiciated Sry for the bad spelling
  12. So this week I have been working on something a little bit more clandestine for my Rogue Trader Oldhammer project! I have painted up the 1989 Imperial Assassin ... This guy is the venerabl ancestor of the Officio Assassinorum models/temples that came in 1996 and were later redone in Execution Force a couple of years back. The sculpt is very reminiscent of the time and whilst it is admittedly a little crude I found it a pleasure to paint. I have a few more Imperial Agents from the 1980s in my bitz box that might receive a lick of paint soon! There’s more photos on my blog at: https://classicastartes.blogspot.co.uk/2018/03/so-to-keep-with-last-weeks-oldhammer.html?m=0
  13. I'm hoping you guys can help me flesh out a project idea I'm putting together: To me, one of the most defining features of 40k is the impossibly convoluted mess of the bureaucratic Adeptus Administratum. Nothing else encapsulates the "grimdark" satire of the setting than the Imperial machine forever grinding forward under the bloated weight of it's own inertia. Entire populations doomed because an indentured scribe misstamped Form AD35-B so it was accidentally filed a city-sized hard-copy archive, only to be retrieved hundreds of years later by a courageous archeo-retrieval team (who lost many good men to the roving packs of giant paper mites). I'm wanting to start a Munitorum theme army, maybe based around a supply depot with overseeing administration agents. I'm currently just going through the imperial army indexes (now that the FW ones are out) and picking out appropriately fluffy units for the job. It won't be a competitive army by any stretch, this is purely for the hell of it! Here's some ideas I've had so far: -Administraum Overseer (Inquisitor) -Munitorum Assistants (Acolytes) -The Tax Man (Eversor Assassin) -Astropath -Officer of the Fleet -Master of Ordinance -Copy Hauler Servitors (Bullgryn with slabshields and mauls): Big servitor fellows carrying massive loads of paperwork (2+ save!) -Utility Heavy Servitors (Kataphron Destroyers or Breachers) -File Sorting Servitors (Arco Flagellants) -Dock Security Servitors (Kastellan Robots) -Datasmith -Security Gun Emplacement Servitors (Tarantula Turrets) -Dock Workers (Conscripts): I love love love the new genestealer cultists models, and with some simple conversions they'd make good laborers. -Dock Supervisors (Commisar/Officer) -Technician Team (Special Weapon Team): Brings meltas and democharges (or Elysians with breaching charges!) -Marshals/Arbites (Tempestus Scions): Local police forces responding to a disturbance at the loading yards. -High Marshal (Tempestor Prime) -Marshal Wagon (Taurox Prime) -Orbital Delivery Rocket (Deathstrike): It's big and dumb and has a stupid mechanic. Perfect! -Prometheum Carriers (Cyclops Demolition Vehicles) -Trojan Supply Tank -Atlas Recovery Tank -Sentinel Powerlifters -Mobile Overwatch Bunker (Malcador Defender): It's a big pillbox with heavybolters. Seems applicable. -Arvus Lighter -Munitorum Administration Office (Imperial Bunker/Bastion) -Heavy Overwatch Emplacements (Vengeance Batteries) -Void Shield I'd love to hear any ideas or suggestions you folks might have (especially in terms of renaming units or conversion potential)!
