Solar Auxilia Lasrifle section complete!! Full scheme included

The group have finished one Auxilary tonight so the guide can be finished. So in total:

Firstly we sprayed the models with Chaos Black spray for our undercoat. We then did a drybrush of Ironbreaker to the metals

Next for the fatigues we used Mephiston Red. We wanted to use a lighter coloured red but not too over the top bright and we are happy with these results

Our next stage was the padding. For this we used a coat of Averland Sunset.

We wanted to go for the classic brown boot colour and we went for for Gorthor Brown. We are very happy with the contrast to the rest of the armour

The respirator sack was painted with steel legion drab. The emblem on the chests were painted with shining gold.

To start off the guns they were given a drybrush basecoat of warplock bronze and then a coat of runelord brass. For the metal we used leadbelcher. For the gloves on the guns we used gorthor brown.

The metal bits were then given a wash of Nuln oil and left to dry.

The fatigues, yellow padding, air tank, gloves, boots, gold and bronze work were then given a wash
of Agrax Earthshade.

The dagger was painted Leadbelcher with an edging of Ironbreaker before a light wash of Nuln oil.

The hilt was painted Warplock with a later of Balthasar gold following up, followed up with a light drybrush of shining gold. The grip was done with Karak stone.

With the metalwork dry we then sponged Ironbreaker to give it a chipped and worn appearance.

The boom charge was done Balthasar gold and washed with Agrax Earthshade.

The eyes were done with 2-3 coats of blood for the blood God (nice red and glossy) followed by a pinprick of white in bottom left corner.

The Base was done as we do all our bases: Dryad Bark base, heavy drybrush of Gothgor brown, medium drybrush of Baneblade brown followed by Karak Stone.

We are very happy with how nice and easy this scheme was and how close to the source artwork it actually was too.

Don't forget to follow us on Facebook. Hopefully we will have a larger amount finished next Thursday. Come back and see us then!

Fury Interceptor; next Space Marine flier from Forge World?


Forge World announced a while ago that there will be 2 new fliers and a New Dreadnought in production soon for the Legionnes Astartes. Could it be the Fabled Fury Interceptor finally?

Size-wise it looks feasible. 

Officially it has mainly a Starfighter roll, but could it make the 30k Tabletop?

It is also in service with many an Imperial organisation including Navy and army. With Macragge approaching; could it be a perfect time for it to appear?

Word Bearers Heavy Support Squad

Hi all

I am very happy to shear with you guys/girls a new squad I have recently completed. 

As you can see, they are a 5 man Heavy Support Squad with missile launchers. These models were very straight forward to complete, and in comparison to my 40 Tactical marines, these were very quick, which was a nice change for me :-),

I am now planing on completing a second Heavy Support Squad very soon so watch this space :-)

Take care

Forge World Zone Mortalis: Where we are up to.

Hi World. 

Another Mortalis Monday has gone past. I have painted 5 whole board floors tonight Mechanicum Standard Grey. 

Khall has been doing silver work on the light fixtures. 

I have enrolled Lady Drake to do some brass piping too, to speed the progress up. 

We have started the doors too now. 

It is almost as long as a Starship now too! Arranged here it is 3x8.

We have glossed it to protect against the White spirit and oil paint stage which we are quickly approaching!

Starting to see the light at the end of the starship now!

Anyway. Hope you continue following our progress. Don't forget to follow our relentless progress by subscribing or through Facebook!

Weekly Progress Report

Hi all. It's time for us bunnies to share with you our progress for this past week. So let's get started shall we?

Drake Seta

Drake Seta has started the mammoth task of assembling all his Night Lords. He will be trying out a few Greenstuff molding techniques to add some grisly pieces to their armour. Here you can see the assault sergeant and a Terror Squad Legionnaire. 

Darko Thane

Darko has been cracking on with his Shabran Darr model and is not far from finishing him off. See photos for updates. Will look to finish this off soon and continue with his other project

Khall Sithis

Khall has not had a chance to do much of his own work this week for a mixture of reasons. On Monday he worked on Zone Mortalis with Drake. See here:
On Tuesday he put the finishing touches on 35 Emperor's Children! See here:
He then came down with man flu and was out of action for a few days. He returned on Saturday to have a fantastic battle (his first game in 7th edition) of Ghost Warriors VS my Word Bearers. It was a very gripping game which ended in a draw. Stay tuned for another post this week for his EC's.

The Group have purchased another 20 Solar Auxilia Lasrifle Troopers. Bringing it to a current total of 60! We are loving the Conquest book at the moment so painting productivity is down slightly. 

That concludes this weeks progress report. Please comment below with your thoughts and don't forget to like our Facebook page and send in pics of your army and you may even get to see it on our armies on parade post every Wednesday. Also let us know what progress you have made this week

Take care :-)

Pre-Heresy Night Lords: Grisly bits and Greenstuff moulds

Hi everyone. 

I am well into my Night Lord project now and have decided I wanted some other grim and nasty bits for my Legion to go with their terror ways. 

I really like the detail on the Night Raptors and the Terror squad torsos, so I decided to get my bluestuff moulding bits out for a spin. 

Simple stuff is bluestuff. Throw in boiling water, let it turn to the consistency of a really chewy caramel or gum.
Tear a bit off and squeeze over the item or detail you want to replicate and let cool. 

When cool you pull it off and evenly jam some greenstuff in there. Leave the greenstuff to set over night. 

Next day pull it out easily as it won't stick to bluestuff and you have a perfect representation of the piece you desired. 

Then cut and glue to your model and complete any straps / nails etc needed to keep it in place. 

Anyway. Hope it may be something to consider for you guys out there.

Stormhammer previewed in Conquest book

Is this the Stormhammer we have all been waiting for? Or is it a mock up for a picture in Conquest?

It has a Stormhammer cannon and a dual Battlecannon as standard (different from background if I recall). 

Secondary Weapons-wise it more of a mobile fortress than a Super Heavy. 6 Multi-lasers, Lascannon and a co-axial weapon too. 

We will be reviewing the Conquest book in fits and spurts over the next week due to it's size. 

Keep around, subscribe and follow us on Facebook.

CONQUEST IS HERE!!! The Battle Bunnies have a peak.

Book four Conquest is in our hands and we will be scouring through this Tome today and tomorrow. 

First glance the book is substantially bigger than ever before. Lots of background and fluff for Knights, Titans and Solar Auxilia. 

Incredible illustrations. 

The Relic Weapons section has some great bits of equipment to pimp your own personal Character such as the Vlka Fenryka's Burning claws and the Bolod Angels Photonics blade. 

The Campaign system is simple and actually resembles the peg and link system that I was favouring. 

My first impression of the Solar Auxilia is: They are a different flavour of Astra militarum. It will always be difficult to add certain rules which show them as being different, but not giving skills on the battlefield that would eclipse a Legionnaire. The Disciplined fire and Close formation fighting rules really give them a hold the line feel (hold the line rule really helps too funnily enough). I am already looking forward to getting these chaps in a trench and drawing a Legion in to have a bite. Put a Super-Heavy command tank with a Commander bellowing out encouragement or orders in the centre and rest assured they really will be difficult to break. 
The Solar Auxilia Lasrifle is 30" range which also goes with their long reach. They also have void armour which amongst other special rules puts them at a respectable 4+. 

Expect to see us using a squad soon in one of our famous reports. 

It's great that Port Maw is such a key to the Campaign base, and I am really looking forward to reading about them. 

We will give some more info when we can but all in all: Awesome. 

Thanks Forge World, another great book. 

Follow us on Facebook and keep up with our Solar Auxilia army we are creating.

More Solar Auxilia WIP

So tonight at bunny HQ we began fully constructing our Auxilia bodies. They are coming together very nicely for us now, not far off at all now for this squad. Coming together very nicely. With the guns we completed last week we have near enough got the clearance to send the boys to battle!!

Here are a few pics to show our endeavours:

Hope you enjoy how these guys look, should have them completed in the next couple of sessions.

Stay locked in from more from us :)
