Forth Eorlingas!

“Arise now, arise, Riders of Théoden! Dire deeds awake, dark it is eastward. Let horse be bridled, horn be sounded! Forth Eorlingas!” ― King Théoden The Redshields of Erkenbrand are ready for battle! The five riders of Rohan were among the first LotR miniatures I painted some years ago but now got some fresh paint. That’s what I got so far: Erkenbrand on horse 5 Riders of Rohan -5 Westfold Redshields upgrade -2 Throwing spears ...

Riders of Rohan! What news from the Mark?

Erkenbrand, second marshal of Rohan and lord of the Westfold. He and his Éored are also known as the red shields. After a to long hiatus there were finally some LotR miniatures back on my painting desk. With the HTL’s idea for very small 150 points matches one of my faves was back again. Of course it had to be some riders of the Rohirrim led by Erkenbrand. This seemed like a good idea because my former troops led by Grimbold had no cavalry yet.  I just checked what I had in stock regarding Rohirrim … great, I already had painted some of them years ago. But now over to my new paint job, Erkenbrand: ...

House Makabius arise

Today I would like to introduce my first Imperial Knight hailing from House Makabius. A really neat kit which was a real pleasure to assemble. With the help of several neodym magnets one is able to field various different patterns. I can’t remember how long this Knight took me to finish. I bought it the day it was released but since then it always was work in progress as I was not sure which House / colour scheme I should go for. When I first saw the heraldry of House Makabius I was instantly sold. Now after several other projects the Knight is finally ready for warfare. ...

Tank Forward – Into the Fury of Battle

The Spartan is one of my all time favourites of the whole Horus Heresy range. It’s not only a glorious model but also its rules are great. A relentless behemoth which breaks through enemy lines just to unleash a dozen Red Butchers into the heart of battle – one can indeed hardly resist such a tank. ...

World Eaters – Drop Pod Assault

I always wanted to have a Space Marine force striking down from the sky with a classic drop pod assault. Now that I have enough infantry I was  just in need of some Drop Pods. The Legion Anvillus Pattern Dreadclaw was a must have as I really like the model and a Legion Kharybdis was also already built. ...

Storm Eagle Gunship

It’s about time to conquer the sky above the battlefield and gain sovereignty over the airspace. The first step is a Storm Eagle, just an overall well designed model. A great combination of fire power, agility and transport capacity. Building it was true horror but it was worth the effort. ...

The Dawi Zharr set in their raid

After I noticed Goatmoerser pumping out one Regiment of Renown Warband after the other and after the first Warhammer Skirmish Battle Report there was no turning back for me. I grabbed the Chaos Dwarfs boxes from the shelf and started the assembling. Of course I immediately ordered more stuff because you never know 🙂 An army list was written and a colour scheme was chosen. After the typical long search for the right colours the painting session was due and the first match was already ahead. ...

Sicaran Battle Tank II

The second Sicaran is ready now, too. Eager to face the tides of war. I am starting to think that a full squadron of three tanks is a good idea but I should finish other projects first. Maybe something in the colours of the Death Guard… ...

Sicaran Battle Tank

It was about time to get some more vehicles for my World Eaters. After the Rhino which was a joy to paint the first Sicaran was finished. I have to admit that I wasn’t a big fan of this particular model initially. But the paint job was such fun that I even started to work on a second one and a Venator is already getting build aswell. ...
