    More Death Guard….

    I’ve not written about my Horus Heresy Death Guard for a long time, a long long time, but over the last year I’ve been having a number of my models all painted.

    Death Guard (Loyalist) – Kill Team Project

    Good Morning!

    It’s been about time I looked at what team I wanted for the Kill Team Challenge.

    What I won’t get for Christmas 2012

    Evening All,

    I had to do this.

    Christmas isn’t a time that I myself find exciting. The pressure of being ‘happy’ and all that jazz just doesn’t do it for me. This is also the first in many years where I’ve not been in the pub with my friends drinking our way to our graves only to be kicked out at 2am and told to ‘go home’.

    So a quick post.

    Recently I’ve treated myself to a load of Forgeworld models, quite a sizeable amount in fact as I’m planning on building a Horus Heresy force for the near future.

    But as it’s Christmas I’m hoping I get some more stuff, but the chances are that it won’t happen.

    Spartan Assault Tank

    Spartan Assault Tank

    An armoured transport of truly massive proportions, the Spartan is a heavy assault tank previously all but unknown outside of the revered Space Marine Chapters and the secretive Adeptus Mechanicus. The Spartan is a huge armoured conveyer whose purpose is to carry a large body of troops into the very heart of an enemy

    All the paints in the world, well the Warhammer world.

    So it’s that time of the year it seems.

    Games Workshop are making available all of their paints in one large bundle again.

    For the Emperor! A Dark Vengeance is soon to be upon us.

    It’s been a few months since Games Workshop released Warhammer 40k 6th Edition and from what I can see, a lot of players feel it’s a good improvement upon 5th.

    Sons of Medusa – Badab Wars Chapter – A new project?

    Greetings again,

    Just as I thought I had enough on my plate I go and post something on a Facebook Group and then get an idea about a new project for the upcoming Warhammer World Doubles Weekend November 17/18th. However my brain wakes up the following day and I notice that it’s a WARHAMMER event NOT Warhammer 40k…. but still…..

    A friend of mine has built a few of the Badab Wars era Chapters and I’ve always been wanting to – just never found one I liked them blammo! Dan suggests the Mantis Warriors and I pull out the Imperial Armour Badab Wars Part II Book turn to page 64 and there they all are, in their lovely colour plate glory, but a further flick and I see the ‘Sons of Medusa’ another great looking Chapter, and a quick review of them and it’s them I choose.

    But as with all non-supported Chapters the lack of official shoulder pads/decals is a pain. Fear not though, a quick look on google and I find that the Bolter and Chainsword forum have a pretty impressive project – they have a series of Decals for a lot of chapters, here is the link.

    So I locate the Sons of Medusa and find two decals, the main issue being that I can only print these in black and not white like they are, I cannot freehand the number I would require, but what I could do is paint a white circle and then put the decal over the top, giving the impression of the white background.

    Here’s the link to the PDF that I think I shall be using.

    Of course to print these decals will require decal paper and an Ink-jet printer, I have neither and the latter is probably expensive to acquire just for a sheet of decals.

    For the Emporer! – 40k Open Day (Blog 2 of 2)

    So where was I, writing a follow up to this blog post….

    Oh yes, my friends eldest and I had just finished our lunch (I had the fat slob double burger thing – quite nice) and so after my hip flask purchase we ambled upstairs into the hall of miniatures.

    Mighty impressive I think and a touch of humour as well in places.

    Once again my lack of ‘I have a camera, let’s take lots of shots’ has caught me out here, but I took some (mainly Black Templar) and my friend took a lot more (see the Eldar Titan), so here goes the pictures in a nice gallery format.

    So what happened next?

    Well it was time to go to the Seminar ’40k – Designing the new rules’.
