Horus Heresy - further painting

by DaBoss on Sat Nov 02, 2013 5:37 pm
I'm just loving painting these new Forgeworld models.

Sons of Horus
Have given them a wash of Biel-Tan, followed by two dry brushings of Dawnstone, 2nd thin wash of Biel-Tan and another dry brush of Dawnstone - never gone to this much effort for rank & file troops!
Added the Pauldrons giving them the same washes and dry brushing, then picked out the edges with Hashut Bronze washed with Nuln Oil.
Finally finished today with painting bases Mournfang Brown.

I think I'll enjoy painting up another 35 more of these troops.
Sons of Horus

Also added some more colour to my Mechanicum, in line with how my other look

My New Forgeworld Stuff

by DaBoss on Tue Oct 29, 2013 5:20 pm
With our Team's (Armageddon Inc) recent visit up to GW Lenton for 'Council of War' weekend, which turned out to be a good weekend for my Chaos Daemon army of Tzeentch (1 loss and 2 wins) and the absolute victory (17-5) in Apocalypse on the second day - got to use my Armourcast Phantom Titan in an 8000pts per side.

He did very well, kill list included Marneus Calgar and 10 Terminator Bodyguard, Tigius, Lysander, 3 Centurions, 2 Vendetta's and a Warhound twice (brought back after scheduled break), only possible due to the sacrifice of James Iyanden Eldar protecting me from tons of assault Terminators.

Anyway, between these games I picked up the latest Horus Heresy Book 2 - Massacre, along with some Mechanicum and the first models for my first Forgeworld only army - 5 MkIII Space Marines to be painted up as Sons of Horus (I've already got a sizeable Worldeater force using Mk6 RTO1 Space Marine 'Beakies' with Angron leading them to many a victory.

Looking in the allies chart in HH Book 1...

Malifaux 2E Reboot

by DaBoss on Sun Sep 29, 2013 6:41 pm
Finally consumed the rules and changes in the latest 2nd Edition of Malifaux.
Decided to get some more work on my 3rd Crew for the game (1st & 2nd being Rasputina and Pandora)

With the changes to the way Crew's are hired, models now have a basic stat card, with certain models being able to take upgrades (3 for Masters and 1 for Henchmen or Enforcers).
I've reconfigured my Nephilim Crew with choices from Wave 1
4pts Master - Lilith with Upgrades Wicked Mistress, Living Blade & Rapid Growth
12pts Enforcer - Mature Nephilim with Upgrade Obsidian Talons
12pts Minions - 2 x Young Nephilim
12pts Minions - 3 x Terror Tots

Total of 40 soulstones (will drop Rapid Growth & Obsidian Talons to give me an extra 2 soulstones)

Have also painted up a Doppelganger (Enforcer) with Nexus of Power for 8pts

Finally my latest purchases the Beckoners...
