Finally!!! Where have you guys been??!?

Hi all

The time has finally come for me to show you guys my latest completed squad. What I have here is a 5 man veteran squad that I hope to filed with Erebus. 



I have really enjoyed painting these models. Firstly because of the variety within the squad, and secondly because it's the first time I have painted the legion upgrade items. 


I would like to apologise for the poor quality photos. I do promise to post up some betters ones as soon as i am able. 

I hope you enjoy :-) 

Please leave your thoughts and comments below   

Death and defiance

Death and defiance has been announced. It will be released at Warhammer-fest. 



Lots of good storylines to be started by the sounds of it. I especially am looking forward to Rogal Dorn's reaction to his new guard.

Preliminary Emperor's Children Army List

Hey Bunnies



Earlier this week I dropped a bomb on the group when I informed them I was restarting my Emperor's Children with a new colour scheme. In all honesty, I feel it was a brave decision as I have done quite a chunk and spent a lot of money. I do, however, feel I have made the right choice as I am massively happy with my test model.

I am going to do a more concise army list this time and 'trim the fat'. Bare in mind this is a Great Crusade era list.

Here is my new updated list (without HQs - which I plan on doing quite a few!):

Fulgrim

Elites
9 Veteran Legionaire: Volkite Charger (1:5); Plasma gun (1:5); 4× Power Weapon; + 1 Legionaire Sergeant (Power Weapon)
EC - Palatine Blade Squad: 4× Power Sword; Sonic Shriekers; Jump Packs; + 1 Palatine Prefector (Power Sword)
4 Phoenix Terminators: Sonic Shriekers
• Spartan Assault Tank: Armoured Ceramite; Flare shield; Pintle twin-linked Bolter
1 Legion Contemptor Deadnought: Twin-linked Autocannon; Twin-linked lascannon

Troops
9 Legionaire: Boltgun, Bolt Pistol, Chainsword, Combat Blade; + 1 Legionaire Sergeant (power weapon; Artificier armour; frag grenades; krak grenades)
• Rhino
9 Assault Legionaire: Hand Flamer (1in5); Power Weapon (1in5); + 1 Legionaire Assault Sergeant (Power Weapon; Artificier Armour; frag grenades; krak grenades; Melta Bombs (sgt only))
9 Breacher Legionaire: Volkite Charger (1in5); Melta gun (1in5); + 1 Legionaire Sergeant (Melta Bombs (sgt only))
4 Support Legionaires: Volkite Charger; + 1 Legionaire Sergeant (Artificier armour; frag grenades; krak grenades)
4 Support Legionaires: Melta gun; + 1 Legionaire Sergeant

Fast Attack
Legion Storm Eagle Assault Gunship: 2 Wing Twin-linked Lascannons
3 Javelin Attack Speeders: 2× twin-linked Lascannons; 3× Hunter Killer missile (2perLS)
3 Sky Hunter Legionaire: Jetbike Multi-melta (1in3); + 1 Sky Hunter Legionaire Sergeant

Heavy Support
Legion Whirlwind Scorpius
4 Heavy Support Legionaire: 4× Lascannon; + 1 Space Marine Sergeant (Lascannon)
Legion Fire Raptor Gunship: Two turret mounted Reaper Autocannon Battery

Lord of War
Legion Falchion Super-Heavy Tank Destroyer: Armoured Ceramite; Pintle mounted Twin-linked Bolter; Space Marine Legion Crew


This is around 4,500 points in total and more than adequate for some cool battles! I was tempted to plonk in 3 Predators instead of the Scorpius, but I am not sure.

What do you think?

Siege wall has Treadplate plasticard added.

Any progress is good progress. 

Today we added the Tread plate Plasticard to our Siege Wall. We will be adding a thin trim and rivets soon to give the impression of it being bolted down. 


Stay tuned for the next stages!

Mechanicum Krios Battle tank complete

A further addition to the Battle Bunny' joint Mechanicum force; the Krios battle tank. 


I decided to go with a standard black scheme for this piece. The main chassis is black with a Boltgun metal chipping at the extents (my Boltgun metal is still a runny paint which can not be said for the other 4 Leadbelchers I have had since the new range! Sorry just had to get that out), this was done with a sponge and tweezers. 
The main tracks were done with Boltgun metal washed with Leadbelcher and drybrushed with Ironbreaker. I will be adding some more grime and dirt later I reckon. 
The brass work was done with dark golds and various brass or bronzes, washed and layered / chipped up. 




The Mechanicum force grows: soon a Thanatar will be unleashed by Khall, followed by Myrmidon Secutors by Targel & Destructors by Mega Nob. 

Stay tuned to see this detachment in an army list soon!

Weekly Progress Report

Hi all. It's time for us bunnies to share with you our progress for this week, so let's get started

Drake Seta

Drake Seta is continuing his up-wall grind to complete the Siegewall he has been working on. He missed a delivery for the chequer-plate plasti card which was going to be delivered while he was in France, so is now waiting for it to be re-delivered. 
He will be now starting on a destroyed section, a gate section and 2 more Bastion pieces. 



Little Bunny is making good progress on her Defiler. She is also learning more about the forces of Chaos and the Dark Mechanicum. 



Mega Nob

Mega nob is working on a top secret project that will be reveled in a few weeks, he has also finished the warboss model from the storm claw box.



Khall Sithis

Here is an updated test model with what Khall calls his 'homemade subdued gold' on it. He likes how the test model has turned out. Very simple for him to churn this legion out so stay tuned and comment below what you think! 



Darko Thane

Darko Thane has been away from the hobby for some time due to work commitments. He is determined to complete a lot over the coming weeks to make.up for lost time. He has almost completed the 10 man squad so looks to finish this very soon. He will then be looking to take on some more Rampagers and also a set of bikes. More will follow soon

That concludes this weeks progress report. Please comment below with your thoughts. Also 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. We also have a new poll, so don't forget to cast your vote.

Take care

Restarting my Emperor's Children - A pride in painting!

Hey Guys

We have had some beautiful Legions on Parade, over the last few months, with gorgeous paint schemes, showing a real example to the community of the talent out there and the pride in their models. So, recently I have been looking at my projects and in particular the way I have painted the 3rd Legion. I favour a more realistic painting style which has natural lighting, gritty weathering and chipping etc. I am in no way an exceptional painter but I do feel my work is nice enough to share with the community. However, sometimes I look back at my models and know in my heart I can do better. I have had just such a case with my Emperor's Children. I am unhappy with the look and feel of my legion and don't feel they match the beautiful artwork from the Betrayal book:


In Betrayal the Emperor's Children armour is metallic and the gold quite subdued. My purple is non-reflective and very vibrant, while my gold is garish - almost unpalatable. As such I have been trialling some paint schemes today looking for one which ticks all the boxes:
1. Quick
2. Easy
3. Repeatable
4. Metallic
5. Close to the source material 
Here is a picture of my favourite trial model (forgive me the use of MKVII armour lol):



What do you think? I think it is fairly close to the source material. I will be trialling some golds tomorrow, which I will show on the weekly progress report, and then get ready to batch produce! 

I would also like to have a go at repositioning Fulgrim into a more heroic pose and less battle-centric, so stay tuned for that!

Siege wall Battlements complete!

Thats it for the ramparts apart from an hour of gap filling. Next stage is to add the chequer plate flooring which should be delivered in a couple of days.




It is coming on nicely and I am quite proud of it so far. Details for the piece will be done soon (doors etc).

1500pts including a Primarch for every released Legion.

Hi all. 

A little while ago a soldier in America asked us for some advice. He wanted to collect 1500pts including Primarch for every Legion currently out. He wanted the list to show off the Legions traits so that they all gamed a little different. This way he could get 12 small armies together and be able to get them out for a quick game here and there with his Army buddies. 




With Force Organisation and Lords of War making this difficult we decided to count the Primarch as a HQ choice.

Weekly Progress Report

Hi all. It's time for us bunnies to share with you our progress for this week. Unfortunately we only have updates for 2 of our bunnies this week, so let's get started

Drake Seta

Drake Seta is now adding the Battlements to the Curtain wall which is going to be used at the opening of our upcoming Compliance of Valten. 



He has ordered some chequer plate plastercard but Royal Mail are yet to deliver it. 

Targel Vypus

Due to us receiving a new air brush, I have been able to get all my little bits greyed up. Including back packs, arms, heads and shoulder pads, which as I'm sure you can imagine is a lot of bits lol. But this will insure I will be able to start making a huge dent on all my infantry for my word bearers so watch this space, there should be word bearer squads being completed left, right and centre.


That concludes this weeks progress report. Please comment below with your thoughts. Also 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 :-)

Take care
