Word bearers- librarian

Posted on June 14th, 2018 under , , . Posted by

Next up I need an HQ choice for the army. I had an old Severin Loth model from Forgeworld that I never go round to painting.  Given he’s in Mark IV Armour he makes a good Librarian.I decided to do a nice green fade on his sword, I did this using c…

Word Bearers- another support squad!

Posted on June 11th, 2018 under , , . Posted by

Here’s another support squad. Has to be volkite this time, because what is more Horus Heresy than volkite weaponry?I decided to go for a purple glow to volkite as all the fiction depicts red lasers, however, in a red army I didn’t think this would look…

Word Bearers- support squads

Posted on June 6th, 2018 under , , . Posted by

Hello again, I decided to flesh out my troops choices with a flamer squad, good for burning all those monuments to false gods and so on. They’ll need to acquire a ride at some stage to get close enough to bring things.I think these guys could be quite …

More word bearers- Terminators

Posted on May 28th, 2018 under , , . Posted by

Next squad is some cataphractii, I’ve had these lying around for a while after buying six betrayal at calths….They didn’t fit into my other armies due to legion specific Terminators or a less than terminator friendly aesthetic such as my raven guard….

Word bearers and why the silence

Posted on May 24th, 2018 under , , . Posted by

Hello again, we’ve been pretty quiet recently and that probably needs some explaining. Sometimes life gets in the way of toy soldiers….and other times you get challenged to paint 1500pts in a month! So, I decided to work with what I had, which was a …

Word bearers- Gal Vorbak

Posted on May 20th, 2018 under , , . Posted by

Time for some signature units I think. Gal Vorbak are utterly brutal and really define the Word Bearers. I bought two packs, unfortunately one marine came without arms…so I contacted forgeworld, provided a photo and they were happy to fix it. If fact…

Old Out of Production FW Lightning for sale

Posted on April 15th, 2018 under . Posted by

Hi everyone, I’ve decided to auction my old Forgeworld lightning. This is one of those hobby regrets that I never finished. It was bought for my old tallarn imperial guard army and I never quite got to it!The model is in good condition, mostly assemble…

Another army! Rampagers for my World Eaters

Posted on March 15th, 2018 under , , . Posted by

A new army feature today. After I did my Iron Hands (yet to be revealed….maybe I’ll redo them), I decided to do a traitor legion. As a challenge in painting white, I went for the World Eaters and also because they are iconic, super cool and I like th…

Ravenguard- What Next?

Posted on March 9th, 2018 under , , . Posted by

A good question I think. This army is a decent size now, it’s a bit harder to use than I thought as it only really has two elements:1. Infiltrating stuff2. Deep striking or flying stuffThis means your drops and tactics have to be spot on as the infiltr…

Ravenguard- objective markers

Posted on March 6th, 2018 under , , . Posted by

Perhaps I’m scraping the bottom of the barrel now but this is a long running army showcase. Some simple objective markers. Dead easy to make, parts came from a mkVII tactical squad. Ravenguard transfer to show Legion, imperial eagles to show localist s…

Ravenguard- Moritat

Posted on March 2nd, 2018 under , , . Posted by

I picked up this figure a couple of months back. The theme of the moritat is very pre-Corax Ravenguard. Also a cool figures though, I went for the volkite version as it’s a very Heresy style weapon.A few people have asked me about the ammo feeds, they …

Ravenguard- Legion Vigilator

Posted on February 28th, 2018 under , , . Posted by

This was my first character model for my Ravenguard, reckon he still stands the test of time and as there is no official model, good job I have him!This Vigilator is a super Ravenguardy character, he isn’t that great overall but I’ve found him highly s…

Ravenguard- Alvarex Maun Conversion

Posted on February 26th, 2018 under , , . Posted by

So, here we go….I wanted to add Avlarex Maun to my army as he helps the drop pod aspect and messed with my enemies reserves, thus preventing early reactions t my alpha strike with the pods.But no model….probably never going to be one in my eyes…S…

Raven Guard- Darkwing Gunships

Posted on February 22nd, 2018 under , , . Posted by

So, the start of my Ravenguard Airwing. Darkwings are a must in any Ravenguard army in my opinionTwo separate birds here if you can spot the difference, similar scheme to the Xiphons, using corvus black as an “off black” to create some contrasts betwee…

Raven Guard- Xiphon Interceptors

Posted on February 16th, 2018 under , , . Posted by

I wasn’t too keen on this model originally, but given time it’s defintately grown on meI really had a fiddle with the airbrush for these. I wanted them to look a bit battered, as they’re meant to be old fighters pressed back into servic3 due to the Her…

Raven Guard- Armoured Proteus Landraider

Posted on February 14th, 2018 under , , . Posted by

After all the excitement of the Weekender and the battlereport, I think it’s time to get back to what Magnusfolly does best, lots of painted heresy stuff!Why have a landraider in your Ravenguard army? Well when it’s an armoured proteus and messed with …

Well, today was day one of our road trip to Nottingham for the Horus Heresy weekender and an auspicious day it was…..So the Weekender nearly ended early for us, let me relay the story….We all got to Warhammer World at around eleven today. Abes car …

Bang goes the dynamite! Rogal Dorn!

Posted on January 31st, 2018 under , . Posted by

Ok, so……a little unexpected given the Valdor preview last time. Rogal Dorn will be in my possession soon, great model, more evidence of base creep on Primarchs, but still….GREAT model.”Admire my armour as I contemplate my base….my, it is large!…

Raven Guard- Drop Pods

Posted on January 15th, 2018 under , , . Posted by

I have six drop pods…. six! Painting these sapped my life away. They are hard work.The paint scheme was a simple black scheme with weathering. I chipped the models with a sponge and used an airbrush for the re-entry marks.Of my two drop pods, two are…

Horus Heresy Weekender

Posted on January 11th, 2018 under , . Posted by

Once again the weekender comes around. I’ve been to all of these events from the very start, I’ve enjoyed them all, they’re not cheap and in my opinion you go with money in your pocket, after all it is a retail event. After a couple of years I convince…

Raven Guard – Dark Furies

Posted on January 8th, 2018 under , , . Posted by

Here we go with some more ravenguard. Dark Furies are top figures, but due to the paint job a bit understated, but maybe that’s raven guard all over!I did the wings with a grey face using an airbrush, it seems to have come out ok, but the wings seem pa…
