When the Imperial hive of Pinguisburg Profundis was destroyed at the whim of the Inquisition for the crime of harbouring a genestealer cult it took Vertraag, an ogryn slave working in the underhive waste disposal sector primus, three months to dig his way to the surface. From there he walked, bewildered and aimless through theContinue reading “Bone ‘ead”
Last Orktober I wrote a post about the completion of my long running Blood Axe kommando clan. Imagine my surprise when I stumbled across two sneaky gitz who had somehow infiltrated my painting pile from that nefarious eBay!.. In all seriousness, I find that whenever I think I’ve finished one of my collections, my eyeContinue reading “Sneaky Gitz”
As the interlopers sneak through the undercity, they alight upon an ancient statue. Emerald onyx shimmers in the ever dancing flames of the braziers that flank the effigy. The icon of the immortal God-king is magnificent and noble in aspect and at its base, votive candles, minor Shrines and macabre offerings lie scattered in theContinue reading “Immortal Idols”
Continuing from my last post about my primaris marine project (Unnumbered Sons) here is my latest addition… I have a five-man killteam of primaris assault troops and a librarian undercoated and ready to paint, but that’s a project for next year.
With the new Warhammer 40k – Imperium magazine out, I am using it as an excuse to expand my budding Adeptus Mechanicus collection and to start two new ones, both the Necrons and Primaris space marines. I racked my brains to decide which chapter to paint my new ‘uber’ marines before I realised that IContinue reading “Unnumbered Sons”
Years ago, when I still played the unwieldy behemoth that was Warhammer 40k, I had a rather large Imperial Guard army and as part of it I owned no less than six Chimera APCs. They have always had a place in my heart, those sturdy little tanks, many is the time my opponents scoffed atContinue reading “Chimera”
Having read Azazel’s latest Decemb-uary post, which is chock-full of fantastic paint jobs and brilliant conversions by fellow participants, I was inspired to get myself into gear and finish off the final touches to my dreadnought. Without further ado I present venerable-brother Dracorus… I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Azazel for coming upContinue reading “Decemb-uary Painting Challenge Final Reveal”
I have been slowly plugging away at my Iron Eagles dreadnought and have finally started to hit my stride. I look forward to sitting down at the painting desk in the evenings and cracking out the paints. The metallics have been laid down and highlighted, and I am now working on the purity seals.
Following on from my last post, here is a quick update on my memoir 40k narrative campaign. As an ork force tied up the space marines reserves at the Ormffidian river forks, they struck out to secure the bridges over the Malcador river. In this scenario, I decided to play using the more traditional victoryContinue reading “Battle over the Malcador river”
As I have most definitely been in gaming mode during most of December, I needed something to get my head back into a little bit of painting. Fortunately Azazel has come to the rescue with his Decemb-uary Painting Challenge. This Decemb-uary I shall be mostly painting an Iron Eagles dreadnought… This particular model is actuallyContinue reading “Painting Decemb-uary 2017-18”
