Bullock Jet bike

BULLOCKS ! As you might have understood, this post will be 0 non sense…
So… Bullock Jet bikes… You know, those weird jet bikes with no handlebar and absolutely no consideration for health and safety, an utter ode to danger and bad assery :

Those bikes are partly why all beakies looked like they were trying to take a poo.

Well our good pal Mr Papafakis has decided to update the concept with a scratch built version of his own to match this most excellent illustration by Pete Knifton (and brilliantly coloured by Brian Roe) :

Dark Angels – Ravenwing – Hobby nest and basing

Posted on May 26th, 2017 under , , , , , , . Posted by

Rob from 30kplus40k shared the horrors of his workspace the other day so I also felt the need to reveal just how cluttered the man cave has got in this panoramic shot of over 180°. This is what happens when you get so wrapped up in a project that everything else goes to wrack and ruin. I really can’t wait until the Ravenwing are done and I can tidy this place up. Part of me can feel that will power and motivation draining away as I reach the end, to be fair to myself though I have been pulling 12:30 finishes to get them moved forwards so it’s understandable that fatigue is starting to be a factor.

My last effort involved basing the six standard bikers. Five of these were mounted on the daemonscape1 bases I bought just over six years ago! The remaining bike was on a Secret Weapon Miniatures base that was most similar to the other five. You may also note the original Dark Vengeance Ravenwing model on the far left that I’m using for reference. The newer bike’s highlights are a fraction lighter but otherwise it’s a pretty good match I feel. My previous reservations about just how large my palette of colours had got are slightly relieved here as I think they look reasonably narrow in tones, the Knights might be another thing though…

I think there’s still a little work I need to do on the headlamps, as well as Bonewhite chippings on the bases. As you can see the OSL on the headlamps is dubious in the least but it does match the original one for the most part, so at least they’re consistently bad across the group. Also some of the angles I’ve base them on are a bit annoying. I wanted them to look slightly dynamic, how the Dark Vengeance bikes are posed but the drilling and pins on these haven’t always produced the desired effect. I did do one of the plasma dudes wheelying though so there is definitely one that’s cool 😉

This is Brother Adam the ‘dandy Huntsman’. We went to see Adam Ant the other week, he’s not my bag really, my wife was a childhood fan though and it was a Christmas or Anniversary present I’d got for her. I’d wanted to do some more warpaint on a helmetless model and this seemed like the easiest/most appropriate option. I’m not sure it was the best choice of model as the hood obscures things so it’s not immediately obviosu what’s going on but doing this justifies me not painting the eyes, so it had to happen. Ultimately it’s not rubbish so I’ll take it.

You can also see the three red tribal stripes on the stabilising vent on the back pack. Three have these markings, in case I want a unit of three. The other three have markings on their right shin pads. Alternatively I take any upto six with the straight back banner to identify as a unit.

Mounting the seven Black Knights/Command squad next…

8th edition – Primaris Space Marines

Posted on May 16th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

Greetings all – today I’m skipping over some of the last rules snippets we’ve had from GW (they’ll be at the bottom of the post) to focus on something that is a little higher up in my sphere of interest. Primaris Space Marines.

These guys are the next generation of Space Marines, developed in secret by Archmagos Belisarius Cawl at the behest of Roboute Guilliman at the end of the Horus Heresy. For 10,000 years Cawl has worked in secret on developing these guys and now he’s finished (presumably once the project was complete, he realised he had to go and wake up his client!) Guilliman is shipping them out to various locations across the galaxy to reinforce the Space Marine Chapters to allow him to conduct his Indomitus Crusade.

PRIMARIS SPACE MARINE

A light in the Dark Imperium

The Primaris Space Marines are the ultimate expression of the Adeptus Astartes warrior. Stronger, tougher and faster than their already super-human brethren, each Primaris Space Marine is the pinnacle of 10,000 years of science, experimentation, and distilled military knowledge. They unify the might of the Adeptus Astartes with the artifice of Mars – each marching to battle clad in a Martian-forged suit of advanced Mk X armour. They are the cutting edge of Guilliman’s new crusade, and they bring new hope and reinforcements to a galaxy on the brink of oblivion.

The issue with "Primaris" Space Marines

Posted on May 16th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

So, GW is making new space marines. They look cool. Their profile doesn’t seem super broken. I don’t generally mind the release. But, I still had this gut feeling of “wrongness” about them. After giving it some thought, here is what I got1- First of al…

I Am Deeply Skeptical of the Primaris Marines

New Space Marines are Coming!

Posted on May 15th, 2017 under , . Posted by

The new Space Marines are coming!

We have been hearing about the new Space Marines and seen new models, so now they are here:

From Games Workshop:

A New Breed of Hero

For the past 10,000 years, the galaxy has been defended by the awesome might of the Adeptus Astartes – warriors whose origins date back to the gene-forging of the Space Marine Legions on ancient Terra, before even the Great Crusade and the Horus Heresy that followed it.

Over the millennia, some have tried to emulate the process of creating Space Marines, both for good and evil, but none have managed to equal the genius of the Emperor’s finished creation.

Until today.

For ten millennia, Archmagos Dominus Belisarius Cawl has been working on a task set for him by the Primarch Roboute Guilliman: a new legion of warriors. Now, though the Imperium is poised on the brink of annihilation, his task is complete…

The Primaris Space Marine is a new breed of hero for this, the darkest age in the Imperium’s history. These new warriors are the next step in the evolution of the Emperor’s Angels of Death – genetically altered from their brethren to be bigger, stronger and faster – timely reinforcements to the Imperium’s armies as their enemies close in for the kill.
To aid them in battle, these new gene-forged warriors are equipped with new arms and armour forged on holy Mars itself.

The Primaris Space Marine here is an Intercessor wearing Mk X Tacticus armour, a suit that combines the most effective elements of ancestral Horus Heresy patterns of plate with more recent developments in power armour technology. He carries into battle a bolt rifle: the archetypal firearm of Space Marines, re-engineered, re-crafted and perfected*.
At the dawn of the Indomitus Crusade, these phenomenal new warriors join Guilliman as he fights to liberate the scattered bastions of the Imperium. Some, Guilliman has forged into new Space Marine Chapters, whole brotherhoods comprised only of these new warriors. Others he has offered to the existing Space Marine Chapters. Many Chapter Masters have welcomed their Primaris brethren into their ranks, accepting the new reinforcements gladly. Others, though, view these new creations with suspicion or outright hostility, claiming that the Emperor’s work should not have been meddled with.
Though they are a step removed from their brothers, the Primaris Space Marines still bear the gene-seed of their Primarchs, and some dissenting voices worry how this new type of warrior will react with the known genetic quirks and flaws of some of the more unusual Chapters…
*Range 30, Strength 4, AP -1 and Rapid Fire.

Exciting times! The Primaris Space Marines sound like they are going to kick serious face in the far future. Classic Guilliman, playing the long game with this ace up his power-armoured sleeve the whole time he was in stasis. The newly triumphant forces of Chaos had better watch out.

So what does this mean for you gamers and collectors out there and your Space Marine armies? Well, we’ve made this FAQ that explains exactly how this new breed of warriors fit into your collections. For those of you curious as to exactly how these new Space Marines work in the game, we’ll have more details on that later today, so stay posted.

Well, I am excited!  The models rock!
