Salamandra | Salamander

Kolejna figurka w malowaniu mojego brata, żołnierz XVIII legionu, Salamandra. Sama miniaturka to plastik z gry “Burning of Prospero”.
Szczerze mówiąc, Salamandry nigdy nie należały do moich ulubionych kosmicznych marynatów – jeśli chodzi o same figurki. Natomiast z dużą przyjemnością czytałem i czytam o ich przygodach, zwłaszcza w realiach Herezji Horusa. Tomy opowiadające o Vulkanie uważam zresztą za jedne z najciekawszych w tej serii.
One more miniature painted by my brother, soldier of XVIII Legion, Salamander. Miniature itself is a plastic one from ‘Burning of Prospero’ game.

To be honest, Salamanders aren’t my cup of tea – miniatures wise. I really like their fluff though, especially Horus Heresy related one. Books from this series describing Vulcan are – in my opinion – one of the best.


Thousand Sons Storm Eagle

Posted on December 11th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

So, all those Sekhmet need a ride, after all the landraiders I didn’t fancy a Spartan and it seems a bit cliched, given the whole, “Primarch with a terminator tor bodyguard in a Spartan” plague you see in Heresy. So, Magnus can walk! There’s no space for him and ten Sekhmet in a storm eagle!


Again, lots of symbols and transfers 


With lots of black and gold to break up the red




So, really getting there now. The army has a lot in it, of the games I’ve played (maybe 8), I’ve lost one, which was to JBs iron warriors in zone mortalis. Seems the rota guns and veterans are the real cutting edge in the army.

Knight Errant Nathaniel Garro

Posted on December 8th, 2017 under , . Posted by

Another heresy series figure today. I wasn’t planning on buying Garro, but he’s a nice figure and my brother got me him for Christmas as he remembered him from the Heresy novels. Nice one!

A bit different this one, all about not going over the top with the armour, it’s meant to be dull




I wanted his face to look intense, like he’s trying to find purpose through his actions





Another nice figure to paint, highly recommended. A bit of “base creep” going on and I’m not sure it needed to be as big as it is. However, he 2s nice to paint and can even join a few of my armies. I probably like Rubio better so maybe I’ll get him at some point!

Thousand Sons Landraiders

Posted on December 4th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

Here we go,  standard Legion rides. I don’t think you see enough landraiders in Heresy armies, it’s all Spartans. Maybe it’s due to cost or the small cost difference between a resin landraider and the awesome Spartan. So, the back ground says that Thousand Sons have lots of landraiders to ferry their tactical squads around, ever the diligent follower of any background, my Thousand Sons were always going to have landraiders.

First one, lots of symbols and gold lines, ala book VII


These were painted in similar fashion to everything else. Weathering was done with a metallic dark green to create contrast with the red, it’s not obvious to most but I see a difference and you are your own biggest critic!
Two together 


I have a third one all done but I’ll save that for a full army shot as I now have one hundred infantry along with support vehicles. Onwards and upwards, this army isn’t finished yet!

My favourite Horus Heresy model

Posted on November 29th, 2017 under , . Posted by

Ok, having collected Heresy since before the rules came out, I have a lot of stuff…probably too much stuff. I’ve painted five armies to over four thousand points and a lot more in some instances. After a while I realised I got tired painting endless legionaries. So I started to paint a few of the characters for the legions I don’t do. I bough all the Primarchs and am slowly working my way through them, but that’s a story for another day.

No, today I talk about my favourite model to paint, some might be surprised to find it is a model from a Legion I don’t have. Ladies and gentleman, I give you the stunning, Alexis Pollux!

I love the pose, subtle, shows the sculpt off, yet dynamic and heroic


The shield makes the model


Lots of weathering helps the rich yellow tones


Love the base too, very detailed and can draw the eye





I loved painting this figure and would do it again, everything seemed to come together. I’m really happy with it, the armour needed a fair bit of airbrushing and so did the lights on the steps. A sponge was a must for the weathering too. Alexis lives in my display cabinet until I decide to give him some mates!
