Sons of Horus Cataphractii squad

While visiting the local GW some days ago I noticed a test match of the new Shadespire game. Suddenly it came to my mind (looking at the hex-fields on the board) that I really would like to go on with Flattevieh’s and my own little campaign playing the Betrayal at Calth or better said Betrayal at Isstvan III board game. For the next mission there were only two Terminators lacking paint which stood around here readily assembled for quite some time now. So I didn’t hesitate and painted both of them. Hopefully Flattervieh’s World Eater Terminators won’t take long for him to finish. ...

The Augurium

Now that my latest Space Marine project was finished (for now), I thought of a new project to get myself busy again on some power armour. Why not try a new Kill Team? So I went for the Grey Knights this time as I have never painted them before. Actually I had a soft spot for the Knights from Titan ever since yet they always had a major flaw to me. Somehow their agenda to be the first among equals (Space Marines) made them less attractive to me. But now that they are overshadowed by their huge primaris brethren they (at least to me) seemed to be cured. My first try was Brother Atravon, a ...

The Golden Avenger

Brother Captain Karlaen, Commander of the 1. Company of the Blood Angels, Shield of Baal, reports for duty. Today’s model the Commander of the 1. Company of the Blood Angels will be used as a “count as Belial”. I would like to field a Deathwing army list the Blood Angel way. Within my regular Blood Angel lists there are hardly any Terminators at all. But I like the models way to much to not field them at all. In an earlier blog entry I shared my thoughts regarding the conversion of the model and how I would imagine the Archangels of the 1. Company of the Blood Angels to go as Deathwing Terminators: ...

Archangel Brother Captain Karlaen, Shield of Baal

I finished the first 5 Terminators of my 1. Company quite some time ago. I would like to field my Archangels, the first company of the Blood Angels, using the Deathwing rules as I am able to get much more Terminators on the table this way. Therefore I will need a fitting HQ model which will have Belial’s rules to get the Deathwing Terminators as troop choice. A short view inside the fluff of the Blood Angels shows that it is Brother Captain Karlaen, Shield of Baal, acting Captain of the 1. Company, the Archangels, of the Blood Angels. After the name was applied a proper model had ...

Vlka Fenryka Kill Team

After finishing the last two Wolf Guard Terminators the Kill Team is finally completed and ready to leave the Aett. I am still not sure which of these models should be specialists and which not. Maybe I won’t even have three included as I am not a fan of randomly picked special rules without any thought. For example the Terminator with the assault cannon got the targeting modification to his helmet on purpose. Not sure what to make out of it yet though. After picking five Wolf Guard Terminators and the assault cannon there were only 5 points of 200 left to spend. The Leader of the Team is certainly the old grey wolf sans helmet. And as ...

More Wolf Guard & revealed Secrets of successful War Gaming

Today I am able to present the third of five Wolf Guard Terminators. So there are only two other Marines left which are in need to get their paint job done to finish the 200 Points Kill Team for the upcoming club tournament in November.   Secrets of successful War Gaming? You might ask yourself what I am talking about here. Well I am not a big fan of that mumbo-jumbo babbling regarding most effective army lists and battle strategies. There is simply no need for this when you know how to handle your dice properly / know how to pray to the dice god. I am of course joking around a little bit. Since the Kill Team tournament ...

New wolfish Killteam

As I’ve said before, my new Project Log for 500 Points of Wolves does not really go hand in hand with a desired Killteam. Thus I had to come up with something new. I won’t complain as I am now already able to paint and field a Wolf Guard Pack wearing the powerful Tactical Dreadnought Armour better known as Terminators. Today I’ll start with the first two of the pack which will have a total size of five miniatures. ...

You want a little thunder? Or a little lightning?

Over the last few days i’ve been busy paintin’ my first five Assault Terminators. After adding them some additional Blood Angles icons they finally got their paintjob done. Brother sergeant Michelangelo can either be played as the veteran sergeant leading his squad as well as an ordinary Assault Terminator fighting side by side within a larger Assault Terminator squad. Here’s a little overview of the extra Blood Angels iconography i added to this Assault Terminator squad Upper row from left to right: Two pendants remove from Death Company shoulder pads, winged drop of blood from the Death Company sprue, hammerhead from the Death Company, drop of blood casted with an Oyumaru mold, crest with a another Oyumaru casted drop of blood, a pocket ...

Keeper of the Grail

Here comes my first converted sanguinary priest in terminator armor. Keeping in mind that I want to use my terminators as a count as deathwing army as well as ordinary Blood Angels terminators I also wanted to be able to field the sanguinary priest as an apothecary of a terminator command squad. Blood Angels apothecaries come with an ernergy weapon equipped whereas Dark Angels apothecaries sport a storm bolter. I added both weapon options by magnetising them. Having a storm bolter of the space marine captain sprue left, I exchanged the hand part of the storm bolter in order to create a weapon for the left hand and et voila the priest now sports both weapons and is able to ...

Thunder & Lightning

Last week I’ve been busy customizing terminators. I added some additional iconography to my terminators in order to have them appear more like Blood Angels. Some of the icons are left over bits from blood Angels sprues. Additionally I also casted some icons on my own with Oyumaru molds by making imprints of Blood Angels shoulder armor parts. The death company sprue contains a thunder hammer bit with Blood Angels iconography so i decided to use one of those thunder hammers for this terminator squad. This is going to be my first squad of terminators and therefore they need a sergeant leading them into battle. However i also intend to field an army completely made up of terminators using the deathwing list. ...
