Night Lords Contemptor

The Contemptor is a versatile weapon’s platform. It can be used as the normal variant, the mortis one with is especially good against flyers and the new variant, the Cortus. I modelled mine with magnets on the shoulders, so I can use different weapon loadouts.I like to use the contemptor in Zone Mortalis games, they are devastating in those close quarters. In larger games, where I play almost always the Terror Assault Rite of War, it doesn’t get used so much. When I use them, it’s with 2 CCWs and in a Dreadclaw Droppod. Are you using Contemptors and do you prefer the shooty variant or the close combat type? Til next time. ...

Scythe

Scythe – Questoris Knight Crusader of Scion Albert Makabius The last entry for House Makabius was finished and is ready for battle. The Knight will mostly serve as a Crusader but thanks again to Neodym magnets I am very flexible again here. Now there are two Knights still sealed in their boxes left on my shelf. The next one I will work on will be a Forge World Knight again. ...

Night Lords Apothecarii

Apothecarii. Destined to roam the battlefield in search of their fallen brothers. For me, after the new FAQ they got even better since they can join my Terror Squads and now can also be equipped with a jumppack to be used together with my Night Raptors or Assault Squads. So, what are your uses for Apothercariis? Are you using them and for what? Til next time. ...

Four Year Anniversary

Another year has passed and it is now four years ago since the Aleatorblog opened its  gates with its first post. We’re basically still doing what we used to do back then yet we don’t get to see each other that often anymore. But most of us are still working like crazy behind our hobby desks to get these little plastic men ready for tabletop warfare. So we figured it could be fun to take a closer look at our starting point and the climax of our own brush history. What were the Aleatores’ first miniatures, what are their ...

Yet another Knight is already in the works. ...

Acastus Knight Porphyrion – House Makabius

Pride of Makabius – Acastus Knight Porphyrion – of Arbalester Reinhold Makabius Finally it is done! I finished this beast. The Acastus Knight Porphyrion certainly is among the biggest kits I have painted so far. It was a real pleasure finishing him and he really looks good next to the rest of House Makabius. It is amazing if you keep in mind that he was intended to be an upgrade kit for the regular Knight kit but now is the almost the size of a Warhound Titan. ...

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. ...
