Emperor's Children Despoiler Squad

Hiya all 

Here is another completed unit for my Emperor's Children. I really love how these turned out. Whilst listening to Fulgrim and reading Horus Heresy: Betrayal it became very obvious that ECs of all ranks maintained and personalised their own weapons and armour. As prolific swordsmen, I believed it would be more likely that marines would use more varied and subtle swords. So I decided to through in some Sabres as a nice change. They will still count as normal despoilers but with a slightly more personal touch :)

What do you all think? Next up is my Sunkillers squad which I will show later in the week :) 

As always, please feel free to comment, follow us on Facebook and send us pictures of your 30k armies for legion on parade :)

Mechanicum on Parade: The Battle Bunnies force

Hello and welcome to our Mechanicum on Parade. If you have a Legion or Heresy force you wish to showcase, follow the link on the  left and next Wednesday could be your force. 

This is the Group's communal loyalist Mechanicum force. We have started amassing a Dark Mechanicum force and additional options for this force too. Hopefully we can get the Castellax Vorax and Titans done soon!

A Triaros armoured Conveyor

The size comparison between a Krios and a Triaros is quite different. 

This is the first Magos to go on sale to the general public in the world. Quite proud of that. Lovely model and a great one off to break the mould. 

The Krios and Thallax make for a deadly team on the battlefield. The Lightning cannon is pretty excellent. 

9/12 of our Thallax. We have some other weapon options to be painted. 

The big daddy assaulting a strongpoint. 

Thanatar and Thallax

The Thanatar was a joy to paint for Khall. 

Any way. Hopefully we will build to this over the next few months (House Raven are on the schedule now ). Stay tuned, subscribe and follow us on Facebook.

Emperor's Children Tactical Support Squad 2

Hello everyone

Here is my second finished tactical support squad armed with Melta Guns. Really deadly squad if I can get them close enough :)

Really happy with the scheme I went for on my repainted legion. I also threw in some EC specific pads, torsos and heads as well as some pteruges from a 3rd party producer.

 I hope you like my squad. Please comment below :)

Next up is my despoiler squad!

Mortalis: the long slug up hill.

It is taking forever. . . We spend hours on it with no massive transition stages. . . It is getting painful!

But the show must go on if we want such a great board! 

24 tiles (5 flat tiles in the cross-hatched box). We decided to mark a pattern of the layout on each box to easily indicate to us what is inside. 

So tonight we continued with the small details. We painted all brass piping to the light units a base of Warplock bronze. The light units themselves were done a base of Ironbreaker, as were the Aquilas (this should hopefully blend them in to the background when fighting board a Traitor Legion starship during the Heresy. 

Now I am starting to look at artwork to go onto the walls. I made a selection of this for the board when I bought it for our 40k games. I will need to go through and remove many images before printing them now (make them more great crusade eccentric). 

Any way. Keep following this epic journey.

Weekly Progress report

Well. Another week down and another slow week hobby-wise on the run up to Xmas and other exciting things. Let's see what the guys have been up to.

Targel Vypus. 
Targel Vypus has finished his second heavy weapon squad choosing this time to equip them with lassconnons. Next he will aim to complete his Contemptor dreadnought to give his arm the fire power it has been lacking  

Darko Thane. 
Darko has been putting his efforts into helping the group with their work and has not had any time to complete any of his own work. Will endeavour to finish his Darr model at the least by next week

Khall Sithis. 
Khall has been continuing his Luna Wolves. He is starting to trim and prime and is hoping to have all armour completed before the new year. This will leave ribbing, shoulder pad rims and weapons to complete by his February deadline. He also intends to finish his Emperor's Children over the festive period.

Drake Seta. 
Drake has been continuing with his Night Lord mass assembly project. He hopes to get them all assembled and possibly sprayed before Xmas. He really is getting into them now and has 7 spare bodies for either a veteran squad or a Support squad but is not sure what he should go with. 

Group projects have been going quite well. Another Thursday session should see the 40 Solar Auxilia complete, and hopefully the Mortalis will be wrapped up before Xmas too. 

Keep tuned in. And keep an eye out for our coverage at the FW HH weekender in February. Always the first to let the community know about new releases and previews regarding everything Horus Heresy related.

Continuing the Auxilia forces and our own personal touch

Hey guys, another quick update on where we are on our Solar Auxilia project. More work has gone on to complete more squads and should be making a start to some heavier firepower soon, but we will present more on that in the coming times so keep your eyes peeled for that. We are currently working through our second squad but here is a few pics of our boys standing proud on the Castellum stronghold:

We have also brought on the idea of having our own unit designations for when we play them so that they are made to feel our own and have their proper standing when fighting in campaign missions either on their own or fighting alongside Legion armies. We have each created our own army names each with its own backstory. Here is my own one here:

Company: 134th
Planet: Yeteris
Nick: Silver Hammer
Lord Commander: Mall Kuteq
Bio: A pure and decisive company, the Hammer is the critical blow that lands when most needed. After surviving for centuries on a planet in civil war, the 134th company made their name from their swift but clean engagements against the enemy. They were once at the frontlines when a reckoning was needed but now their Hammer is brought down when the balance needs to be not only tipped, but put into the undeniable favour of the army they fight with. Well supplied and well organised, they move in both small contingents or large units depending on the opposition they are entrusted to deal with. Lord Kuteq himself oversees all action either by engaging with his own ground units or from nearby in his personal command center. Rarely giving into defeat, when you see the Hammer being brought down expect ruthless aggression matched with pure and fluid coordinated firepower.

The rest of us will share our stories in their own posts but I hope you enjoy mine and enjoy the rest of our work.

Stay tuned for more from us!

My second heavy weapon squad

 Hi all. 

I have yet another squad to show you guy/girls. With the few battles I have had with my Word Bearers, it was clear to me that I needed more units that have the capability of taking down armour. So I decided to do a 5 man Lasscannon squad. I hope you like :-)

Please comment below on your opinions and also what other unit you think I should do.

Take care :-)

Solar Auxilia. A delve into. Part 1.

Hi there everyone. So the Dust from Conquest is settling and we are all having a real good read through this tome. 

I have decided to have a look into the options available to the Solar Auxilia in two parts. Here is part one. 


Legate Commander upgradable to a Lord Marshal. He is a Leadership buffer to the army whilst on the table. He can also be given a Cyber Familiar so I can use my Imperial Enforcer model with Mastif as one of our HQs

Auxilia Tactical command section comprises of 2 -7 Veterans, a lieutenant ranked office, a Comms operator and a banner bearer. This is an HQ choice and gives you a one shot orbital bombardment. 

Auxilia Tank Commander is a veteran Tank commander which has several special rules including leadership buffing. 

Auxilia Medicae detachment as you can imagine; you buy one, join it to a unit, unit gets Feel no pain. 

Auxilia Rapier Battery is what it says on the tin. 

Auxilia Ogryn Charonite squad. These will look great judging by the Fact Forge World are doing them. Rules are great, they are designed to be a heavy hitting close combat unit employed in boarding actions, breaches etc. they have 2 sets of mechanical claws which are very nasty. 

Enginseers. Similar to existing choices. 

Tercio. A Tercio can have 1-3 options in one troop choice. This includes a 20 man Lasrifle section, Storm section and Auxilia Flamer support section. The Storm section doesn't appear to be a Support section at first glance which means a gamer could completely avoid the Lasrifles. 

Lasrifle section. Now the Solar Auxilia all have void armour giving them a better than flak save. The Lasrifle has a longer range too. They also have an option for Blast Chargers which give them a Fury of the Legion style attack. As these are the meat of the army, you may need about 60 of them before you start denting your army points limit. 

This is slowly turning into a very nice army with some strong core features to them. Hopefully it won't be too long before we start seeing them on battlefields. 

Come back for part 2 soon. 

Drake Seta.

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?

Targel Vypus.

I had a very productive week this week. With the assistance of Khall, I have prepped quite a few of my upcoming projects. These include assembling my Achilles tank and a rapier cannon, and trimming 5 terminators and 20 assault marines. All of these will be for my pre-heresy Word Bearers.

I also also very close to finishing my second heavy support squad with lassconnons.

The group has made good progress on their Solar Auxilia and Mortalis projects. The first 40 Auxilaries are almost finished and so we will be getting to the tanks soon, and the Mortalis board is now on the details step of the project. 

Drake Seta

Drake has made no progress this week on his personal projects due to a busy time at work. He is excited for Curze now though. 

Khall Sithis

Khall has chosen this week to instead of working on his personal projects, to assist in in the group one. This include the Solar Auxillia and the Mortalis and also giving me a hand as previously mentioned. 

Darko Thane

Darko has been busy this week with work commitments this week so hasn't had much time for painting. He has started washing and trimming his latest project but hopes to have the base finished for his Darr model and finish that by the end of next week. A post will follow this

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 :-)

Christmas has come early!

Hey all

Christmas has come early at the Battle Bunny Bunker in the form of resin!!

Today we have received the following:
Knight Styrix
Solar Auxilia Leman Russ Incinerator
3 Luna Wolf Outriders
15 Salamander Tactical Marines

So I have started soaking/washing them to get them ready as soon as possible.

So here is a quick summary of each of these projects

House Raven:
Drake and I are currently preparing 3 Imperial Knights for this Knight House. The Styrix is our third Knight (all of which will be started when we finish Zone Mortalis).

Solar Auxilia:
The group are putting the finishing touches to 40 Solar Auxilia troops before moving onto some tanks. The Leman Russ is the latest inclusion to our armoured section which also includes a Baneblade and a Shadowsword!

3 Outriders
I love the gritty look of the outrider squad and as such felt it was a fantastic addition to my coming Luna Wolves army. It is my final purchase for them (except a Horus to repose/kitbash - I am looking for a replacement sword, if not I will 3D sculpt my own). I am planning on adding in some of the Sons of Horus torsos onto the bikes to make them look a bit more special!
15 Salamanders
My hope is that I will be starting the Salamanders in the new year (Early Feb). I don't have much left to get but its a big birthday for me in Feb and I think my list consists entirely of resin toys (so I don't feel so damn old lol). First I need to finish my LWs though lol.

Annnnnd that's it from me. Thought you would all like to see what we are starting. What do you have on your table at the moment? Don't forget to like us on Facebook (where you can converse with us via messenger!), we have positions available on Wednesdays for Legion on Parade (but we will also except any 30k Xenos projects) and look out tomorrow for our weekly update :)

Ciao for now
