Dark Imperium: Primaris Space Marines Field Police

Posted on June 25th, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

The first of the Primaris Field Police squads are done.

Commissioned by Guilliman and the current Chapter Masters to maintain law and order amongst the besieged Imperium, these Primaris Marines have a clear mandate that stretches them beyond mere Founding Chapter loyalties.

Their mission is simple; ensure the Emperor’s Laws are upheld. Whether these are broken by citizens, Space Marines or even the new Primaris Marines, no one is above the law. Indeed, to maintain their objectivity, the gene-seed origin of this chapter is known only to Guilliman and the other Chapter Masters. Thus no chapter can plead with them for clemency based on shared genetics.

Not that they are beyond mercy. For them is the constant debate between the Letter and Spirit of The Law. For a set of laws as expansive as the Imperium’s, such interpretation is necessary. Thus, when a citizen steals bread to feed his family, the Judge Veterans of the chapter can step in to grant mercy.

And their judgement stands. For they are order incarnate.

Nos es Lex.

Dark Imperium: Nurgle’s Gardeners Death Guard

Posted on June 25th, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

The quick and easy Plague Marines I posted about earlier are complete.

These are the Nurgle’s Gardeners.

Whilst they may not have as bone chilling name as other Death Guard, their reputation is perhaps more terrifying. Not simple content with waging war in Nurgle’s name, their goal is to create wondrous farms and gardens where Nurgle’s creatures may grow.

As soon as they make planet fall, poxes and airborne diseases are released into the atmosphere, in the hope that they will take root in the inhabitants there and prosper. The Gardeners will emerge from their ships, investigating population centers and carefully selecting organisms for host bodies.

Sometimes these organisms will resist and attempt to struggle against their tender care, but the Gardeners simply smile and set to gently removing these obstacles with bolter and plague knife. Slowly, and inexorably, the planet and inhabitants succumb to their good natured invasions and infections, until peace is spread across the planet.

Once the world is a miasma of putrification and pestilence, happy clouds of flies buzzing across the swamps and lakes of oozing disease, the Gardeners nod to each other. After a well deserved cup of Nurgle’s Tea, they take to their ships to begin anew on a wild, untamed and clean planet.

For they have one purpose…

“Let it grow.”

Painting Guide: Khorne Blood Bound

Posted on June 22nd, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

Ok, I know I promised a rocket video, but I need to edit out the students. Child Protection is something any teacher worth their chalk takes seriously.

Instead here’s my guide to painting Khorne Bloodbound:

khorne painting guide
Don’t bother with the brush… just dunk him in there. Khorne loves that.

Ok, that’s not how I really paint these guys, and here’s a link to an actual painting guide. The conical flask there is full of fake blood I’m using for a murder mystery.



Blood group testing

The samples out of the blood group test teaching packet looked more like water melon juice than blood. I’m just doing some custom samples now.

What? Theatricality is important in the classroom. Why wouldn’t I spend my free time making realistic looking blood samples?

Until next time!
