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.
Tag Archives: space marines
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”
Slay the grey!
I have, like many a hobbyist, acquired lots of models over the years. Inspiration takes me off to eBay with a head full of dreams of new projects, but unfortunately my crafting speed simply cannot keep up. Even with a 15 month old son to run around after, I had an hour or two everyContinue reading “Slay the grey!”
Fun and Frolics in the Deadzone
Hello fellow carbon based lifeforms and welcome to another Deadzone post! I have been playing some more solo missions in the Deadzone this week and trying out a new randomized activation for the ‘opposition’, using counters drawn from a cup. It has worked rather well at creating suspense, not knowing which enemy model will activateContinue reading “Fun and Frolics in the Deadzone”
Deadzone ‘Survival of the fittest’ Mission 4
I finally managed to play the last mission of my solo Deadzone campaign ‘Survival of the fittest’ recently. With the original strike team of 14 troops being whittled down to 3, brother sergeant Edwine, terminator-suited brother Bartholemu and master sniper Larkin make their way to the extraction coordinates. I found a rather cool app forContinue reading “Deadzone ‘Survival of the fittest’ Mission 4”

Mission #3 – Slip the Noose ‘You have no choice now but to trust that your message got through. The inexorable press of the zombies is slowly closing in around your position. The only hope you now have is to punch a gap through them and escape to the extraction point. As the noose tightens,Continue reading “Deadzone: Survival of the fittest Part 3”
Deadzone: Survival of the fittest Part 2
I had some time during the week to setup and play the second scenario of my solo campaign, and if I thought the first battle was nail-biting then I was certainly in for a shock second time around! Mission #2 – Beacon of hope ‘You now know what you’re up against, and the scale ofContinue reading “Deadzone: Survival of the fittest Part 2”
Containment protocols in effect: Deadzone
I have recently been playing a lot of Deadzone by Mantic Games. I bought the first version of the boxed set last year and decided at the time to stick with the original ruleset, however, after reading the version 2 ruleset I have decided to upgrade to the new and improved version. To help meContinue reading “Containment protocols in effect: Deadzone”
Decemb-uary Painting Challenge Final Reveal
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”
Decemb-uary painting update #2
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.
