Continuing the Solar Auxilia

Tonight we have been cracking on with the Solar Auxilia troops. We have also been preparing the next part to our Auxilia project though that will be revealed in due course. Here is what we are currently up to, looking very good we must say:

As you can see we have started work on the boots. 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 so far. Here is a better view:

We are thoroughly enjoying this army so far and look forward to do battle and most importantly have Conquest to read more about this army in depth.

Hope you enjoyed this update, we will be continuing more soon!!

Solar Auxilia Medusa and Basilisk WIP

Hi everybody. 

With our Gaming group's Solar Auxilia well underway, I have decided to get the first 2 of their 3 vehicles constructed. 

They are so simple to build and I am very much looking forward to painting them. 

Heads up though guys; the Solar Auxilia tanks all come with a cupola gunner! No need to buy additional tank crews for these. We purchased a pack and they will be going to our Baneblade, Shadowsword and Leman Russ tanks now. 

We will do another night on them on Thursday. So come back then. 

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?

Drake Seta

Drake Seta hopes to have his Death Guard Breacher squad done by tomorrow night. So expect a finished post by Friday. 

The Solar Auxilia are coming along nicely. 2 Leman Russ Battle Tanks, a Shadowsword, a Dracosan, a Medusa and a Basilisk are all nearing completion. 

Khall Sithis

Khall has been working hard on his Emperor's Children. Please check out some of his pics from yesterday's post -

Next up for him is a Sicaran, Javelin and a Contemptor!

Darko Thane

Darko has been continuing on his multiple projects. He is very close to finishing the whirlwind, just needing to finish off the main paintwork and then weathering and transfers. With his character model that still needs a lot of work. The rampagers are near enough finished. Jump packs just need to be bronzed and then just need constructing. See all photos below for updates. He hopes to complete all of these very soon. Whirlwind and rampagers by end of week, character possibly too. Expect posts from him soon

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 :-)

WIP Emperor's Children

Hey Bunnies

I thought I would show you what I have been working on recently.

I decided to redo my Emperor's Children about 2 months ago as I was unhappy with the colours. The purple was flat and vibrant, the gold was bordering on eye-achingly obnoxious. I compared my colour scheme to the one in Horus Heresy: Betrayal and found it wanting.

So here is a quick work in progress of my new Emperor's Children - from a time of honour and discipline:

And here are some close-ups:

Tactical support marine with Meltagun

Despoiler - sorry for poor photo. Will update asap



Schimitar Jet Bike

I hope you like my work, I am happy with how they look so far. Expect to see more pictures as I finish them. Please leave feedback below :)

Legions on Parade: David O'hara's Raven Guard

Hello to the 30k community. 

Presented here tonight is David O'hara's Raven Guard. David is one of our followers who I spend a lot of time chatting to. He is a die hard Raven Guard fan and below is his Legion. 

The force as it currently stands. We will be getting some action photos in the near future on a battle board. 

Missile Launcher Heavy support squad. 

Commander of the force and a pair of RTB01 Legionnaires (the first minis I ever purchased). 

Dark furies!

A lovely painted army. Very Matt black in appearance and stealthy looking. 

David painted it like this. 
A fairly simplistic paint scheme; Black undercoat, then a quick spray of white from the top. Black wash several times and then a light dusting of grey (partly to bring some detail out, partly to add a dusty effect as I wanted them to blend in with their bases as they are all about the stealth!) 

A little background on my force! I built this army with the intent of being an opponent for my good friend who was featured on Legions on Parade a while ago (Night Lords: “The Devils in the Dark”). Therefore I wanted the background to evolve with whatever battles we fought… So without further ado…

A Raven Guard company selected to test the prototype MK VI Armour near the end of the great crusade, the 121st “Falcon’s Claws” put the armour through its paces utilising it for the signature strikes the Raven Guard where known for. When the order came from Corax to gather the legion for the strike on Horus and his allied traitor legions, the 121st prepared their Mk VI Armour for its greatest challenge yet. The Falcon’s Claws threw themselves into the fight with the rest of their legion, only falling back when the loyalist numbers appeared to be swelled by the arrival of the Iron Warriors, Word Bearers, Night Lords and Alpha Legion.

When the traitors struck, the 121st where mauled particularly badly, being reduced to around 100 members and separated from the bulk of the legion when the order to breakout of the trap came. Rather than attempt to regroup with Corax they chose a different tactic, evading complete destruction by hijacking several traitor gunships. The strike force remained hidden in their captured craft, only heading for orbit when the traitor legions started recovering men material after the main battle was concluded. The highest ranking survivor, Shadow Captain Maltus ordered his remaining forces to converge on the damaged Night Lord Strike cruiser “Stalker in the Night”, intending to board the ship, steal it and use it to escape the system. There were several other damaged ships nearby which appeared warp viable still; however the “Stalker” was the better target. Maltus theorised that most of the legion forces should still be transiting up from the surface, making the ship vulnerable.

If you have a Legion on parade you would like to share follow the links on the left to find out how.

Word Bearer Contemptor wip

Hi all

I would like to show you what I have been doing lately. I have made quite a lot of progress with my word bearer contemptor. I am really enjoying painting this model and it is a good change from marine after marine lol
I really like the way the gold is looking in contrast to the granite grey armour.

All I really have to do are the weapons and a few of the small details which really shouldn't take me long.

Let me know what you think in the comments down below.

Take care :-)
