Necromunda: Palanite Subjugators completed

Hi all

Off the back of completing my Palanite Enforcers, I decided to paint my Subjugators. 





Was fun to do. The visors and shields were the most testing bits. 



I used a lot of Space Wolf colours to achieve this over kantor blue. It was then given a splash of Pledge/Klear. 


I will be using it as a Gang on its own (will treat it as the riot squad compared to the Enforcers being a general squad). 

So both Special weapons are utilised and the squad comes in just under 1000 credits.

Kill Team: Pariah Nexus our first week

Hi all 

We have had a week and a bit of fun with this boxed game, so have a peak. 



So firstly the Necrons will be painted for my boy Nate who is collecting the Szarekhan dynasty. They were really fiddly to assemble but the detail is incredible. 
The legs don’t seem to have a perfect sweet spot to settle in, especially when using plastic glue. The rest of the kit is perfect, so that is my only minor grumble. 


I have started converting the Heavy Intercessor for my Grimbloods Great Company of the Space Wolves. 
The Heavy Intercessors are a joy to assemble. I could not find any imagery in the books regarding which ammo clip represented each Bolt rifle type so I just matched them in with the Captain’s and will inform my opponent what they are. 


The scenery is cracking. I am really impressed. I am moving home shortly, so will be making a display case/shelf for each of my family’s armies/team/gang/Warband etc. So for Nate’s Necrons, it now looks like I can effectively do a Tomb scene :)

Not all terrain is used on every game which is good. As you can see this below was the left overs from our first game. 




Here you can see our first game. It was a good crack so we are looking forward to getting the models painted and doing the missions in the book from start to finish. 





The core rules do not come in the box and it does say that the core rules are needed on the rear of the Pariah Nexus book. 
They have the corridor based variations to the rules in here though which is obviously needed. 


Anyway. Great box with a great double sided board. Going to be a fun expansion to play!!

Necromunda: Palanite Enforcers completed

Hi all

I managed to get my Palanite Enforcers completed. Please have looksy. 

I followed my Mortis paint colours mostly for them. 

Corvus black pads with, Gal Vorbak (GW) to Word Bearer (FW version which is different to GW one) and then a Angron Clear over for the red. 

I then used Klear to get the shine up on the black

I added AK interactive streaking grime and buffed it off at various parts of the pads. 


I then used rubble powder to add dust to the feet. 

I have almost finished 6 Subjugators now!

Chaos Battletome Hedonites of Slaanesh peek

Hi all

Let’s have a look at a few of the pages in the new Hedonites book :)


It’s a brilliant book with great artwork (especially around the borders). It really gives you all the background of this faction. 

I love the artwork showing Slaanesh captured :). Have a read above. 




Some characters are introduced too. Have a look at Lyrolla Visq above.


Still one of my favourite things about the Battletome is the painting guide resource. There are plenty of guides and inspiration in this book to help you paint your Hedonites. 


Love this terrain piece too! The Fane of Slaanesh would look good on any chaos themed board. 

Thanks for having a peak.

Codex Death Guard review

Hi all. Got my paws on the Death Guard Codex.


It’s 95 pages of awesome. 


It has some cool bits about the different companies within the Legion. All the way from 1-7. Now that is sooooo cool. 


As with all Codex it has some decent background on the Legion and what they are currently up to. 


The Disciplines are damn decent too.

Projects aplenty.

Hi all
Sorry been a bit quiet the past couple of weeks, me and Lauren are moving homes shortly and combining/selling items/selling houses has been really up there with our priorities. 

Lauren has managed to get her second Escher ganger finished. She has followed an excellent guide for the Leopard spots on Mel B’s attire and is now looking awesome. 


We are really looking forward to a dungeon/city crawler soon so we are really excited for the Cursed City. 


The new Warmaster is an incredible model and we can’t wait  to get our paws on it. 


An event I help run was featured in the White Dwarf which was excellent. 

I knocked out a Palanite Enforcer (weather means I can’t get the airbrush out currently so my Secutarii project has stalled). 


We have found a bit of time to play some other board games like Ticket to ride. 

Also managed to play some 40k with the kids :)


Lots more posts to come.

Blood Bowl: Elf Referee completed.

Hi all

Honey the Destroyer has completed her Ref. 

Lovely smooth vertical lines!

Look at this. Her feather is actually the second thing she has ever blended. She’s doing great. 

It was also her first time using static grass. 

The scripture she has done is brilliant too. 

She is now working on some Tyranids

Blood Bowl: Referee painted (with a free hand painted Rulebook at his waist)

Hi all

I just finished my referee. 


Was a fun 2 evenings. 

The stripes were less of a challenge then I thought they would be. 

Honey the Destroyer (Lauren) challenged me to paint the Rulebook onto one of the books on his person, so here is my first bit of free handing!





All in all quite pleased with him. Now onto my next mini project

Mechanicum: Legio Mortis Secutarii project

Hi all

I have started another Horus Heresy project now, and it is a Mechanicum project to work with my Legio Mortis force. 



I have started 30 Hoplites and 20 Peltasts. 

Still not 100% sure on colour placement, but I will be doing a tester model soon.
