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 …

We attended a fair few seminars today, mainly the new releases for necromunda and Horus Heresy. So here’s few pics from those. Heresy wise, aside form the actually releases of Dorn and co. I suppose the big news is the upcoming release of Alphariu…

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

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…

Raven Guard – Mor Deythan

Posted on December 30th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

Next up, a ravenguard signature unit, Mor Deythan. I went for the sniper variant initially but if I can ever get back to painting the odd extra squad I’d lover some combi weapons/shotguns for a more mobile unit. These guys are nice figures but the init…

Merry Christmas! Here’s a Pro Elf Team

Posted on December 24th, 2017 under , . Posted by

Been waiting for these for a while, whilst I’ve painted my humans, we have a new Bloodbowl league about to start at the club. I’ve been practising online and love the new pro elf models, so here is half the team. I bough two boxes as I want to start wi…

Raven Guard- Tactical Marines

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

This is the third Heresy army I completed, after my iron hands and world eaters. I’ll show those armies another day, however these guys are my go to loyalist army at the moment so pretty current.The paint scheme is amazingly straight forward as you mig…

My human team is now finished so here they are, this is the basic team from the boxed game. I have a second team which Abenormal kindly gave me to flesh it out. I also have a couple of the star players just to add a bit of variety to the team, I tend t…

House Delaque Gang

Posted on December 18th, 2017 under , . Posted by

Necromunda is out and over at Section 8 we’ve been getting ready. I’ve been in the hobby a while, so I have some of my old necromunda gangs. I’ve decided to paint my Delaques as I suspect there will be a lot of Escher and Goliath gangs kicking around.I…

Magistus Amon, equerry to The Crimson King

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

So, I need a fitting leader for my force, I have Magnus but I take my time over Primarchs and Magnus is a biggie. So Amon comes out and solves my problem. Really love the model, would prefer it if I had some hidden ones to go with him, but t(e best comes to those who wait.

Great posing, painting the cape inside green wasn’t easy but I reckon I’ve got it to work

The outside of the cape, badly cast, bit of a nightmare

The only gripe I have is the outside of the cape was badly cast, I’ve heard this from others who have the model. My solution was to file and cut it down. Becase of this the paint didn’t lie as well as I would like. I wish like others I had used some modelling putty to fill the gaps and instead of sand it down, bring it up. 
Either way, top model to paint, shame about the cape!
