Before I tackled the Defiler I came across four Space Marines (the last four from a previous second hand purchase), and thought I might as well paint them up. I thought 3 might serve as a company HQ to accompany a SM Captain, while the fourth was someo…

Ever had one of those moments where you complete a model or project and then wonder .. um, what next? Aha … So many projects, such a’pile of lead’ (figuratively speaking, of course) that you really don’t know what to start next.There’s a pile o…
Z otchłani czasu: klany i kasty orków: Kult Szybkości i Konowały | From the abyss of time: Orks clans and castes: Kult of Speed and Painboyz
We have painted a Ferrus Manus in the past to Display quality. What makes this commission a little different is that it is painted using Real Metal rather than Non-Metal Metallic techniques. Pigment powders were used on the base and the lower part of the miniature for weathering as well […]
Yep, I’m done with this year’s painting challenge, the GW Chaos Defiler. I chose the Night Lord’ colour scheme to fit with the theme I’d used for the Chaos Space Marines, although I didn’t do the ‘lightning bolts across the armour’ thing.I’ve always qu…
It was a varied morning for the boys who war game at College.Four of them fought across the skies above Germany in 1943, P51s trying to clear the skies of the ever present Fw190s in preparation for the arrival of the bomber waves.Sadly the Fw 190s were…
Well it’s certainly big…
In addition to its ardex-defensor mauler bolt cannon and lascannon turrets, support weapons that would be considered main armaments on smaller war machines, the Warlord is commonly fitted with a pair of carapace-mounted triple-barrelled laser blasters and two Belicosa
pattern Volcano cannon.
The Belicosa pattern Volcano cannon is one of the most potent energy weapons produced by the forges of the Mechanicum. It is so fearsome infact that only the plasma reactor of the Warlord Titan can feed its ravenous appetite for power and make possible the destruction of the most terrible foes of Mankind. The Warlord’s triple-barrelled laser blasters are also immensely powerful weapons, created to destroy entire squadrons of armoured vehicles in each blazing volley.
By far the most impressive model we have ever produced, the Mars pattern Warlord Titan stands at over 22 inches tall and weighs more than twice that of a Reaver Titan. Consisting of more than 200 parts, this huge model is amazingly poseable and immensely detailed, from its pistons, vents and access hatches to the intricately designed cockpit and crew inside its head and the embossed icons on its armour plates. It will truly be the pinnacle of any collection and will dominate any battlefield it is placed on.
The rules for using the Mars Warlord Battle Titan can be found in The Horus Heresy Book Five – Tempest and may be used in both games set during the Horus Heresy and in standard games of Warhammer 40,000, in which case the Mars Warlord Battle Titan is a Lords of War choice for Armies of the Imperium and Chaos Space Marines.
The Mars pattern Warlord Titan Body, Mars-Alpha pattern Warlord Titan Head, Mars pattern Warlord Belicosa Volcano Cannon and Mars pattern Warlord Titan Laser Blasters are each multi-part resin kits which together build a complete Mars pattern Warlord Titan. You will need two Mars pattern Warlord Belicosa Volcano Cannon to complete the Warlord Titan.
Last night I faced Carl’s Iron Hands in an 1,850 game. I had a list that I was hoping would help see the Disciples of Twilight get out of their losing slump, having lost the last six games. The big thing I was working on with the list is getting some anti-infantry fire power. Too […]
I’m working on the last arm for my Herald of Khorne and figured I’d take some quick shots of the Hellblade (power weapon), I’m working on. This is where I left off with it last night. I’m pretty happy with how it’s coming along. I went with green to get a nice contrast against all […]
+INLOAD+ CHRONICLE #24267 USER: ASHAI CATEGORY: PERSONAL +BEGIN CHRONICLE+ + The bones of the ship groan around me. I watch the stars drift as we begin moving, pulling away from Kalixus, our wounds healed and weapons restored. 3rd Claw has been reforged in blood and honour, […]
A quick shot of my own progress on this year’s painting challenge. The Chaos Defiler is interesting as a kit build. I’ve pre-painted everything I can on the sprues before I start assembly. This then requires additional touch ups as assembly proceeds in…
Well, this year’s painting challenge has been under way for several weeks and each of us has faced delays. For Andy and I it has been work and family pressures. For Adrian it has been the availability of the figures etc that he wanted. Adrian decided t…
The project that never ends is nearing completion. Every time I think I have something done on this model I realize I forgot something and have to go back. Still, I keep moving forward and chipping away at it. Barring something I’ve forgotten again, what you see is completed. I’m working on the arms now […]
Time for an update on the Painting Challenge progress which, quite frankly, has been pedestrian to say the least. An overseas conference and work pressure generally have taken their toll. However I have been pottering away painting parts on sprues to t…
Being a full time painter I often end up painting the same things multiple times. This can be a bit repetitive and tiresome if they’re all very close together however this Space Hulk commission was about a year apart from when I painted another set meaning I was able to see how my techiques have changed and developed over the […]
Sometimes the best choice is the least likely. In avoiding picking a second legion from a big selection of favourites, I instead went for one of the least favourite, but with a challenge. Legio VI – Space Wolves – The Sky Warriors of Russ It took a little goading and an impulse borne of a challenge […]
Another Wednesday evening and another game in with the Disciples of Twilight, Khorne Daemonkin. As I mentioned the other day, I wanted to try out a list idea. I explained in that article the concept so I’ll just jump to sharing the list again. Disciples of Twilight: Khorne Daemonkin – 1,850 HQ Daemon Prince ? […]
The post Khorne Daemonkin vs Blood Angels – 40K Battle Report appeared first on Creative Twilight.
I’ve had a rough go lately with my Khorne Daemonkin. I started off great with them and had a lot of awesome close games but the past four weeks has seen the poor followers of Khorne abused. Blood for the Blood God and all that but putting models on the table to only systematically pick […]
I recently made the decision to rebase my entire Iron hands army from 25mm to 32mm round bases. Simply put, it looks so much better and it is the new standard, officially or not. I did a quick proof of concept on an old base for the style before making the move. Previously I had […]
A small quick commission I painted in a day at the Tabletop Level consisting of the new plastic Overlord, the older Finecast Overlord and a squad of 5 Lychguard with Dispersion shields. The client asked for them in the Nihilakh Dynasty scheme and a run through of how they were painted, which I’ve put below the images! I’ll be starting […]
More work on my Herald of Khorne on Juggernaught. Slow progress is still progress so I can’t really complain! First up, pictures. I think I finally have my lighting on the right track. It still needs some tweaking, as you’ll notice shadows and some light spots, but at least I didn’t wash out the reds […]
Z otchłani czasu: Klany i kasty orków – Mekaniacy | From the abyss of time: Orks clans and castes – Mekboyz
On Wednesday I played an 1,850 game with my Khorne Daemonkin, Disciples of Twilight, against Orks. Instead of doing a full-on report I’ll just cover it briefly to move on to my thoughts, which is the focus for the article. Khorne Daemonkin vs Orks Gabe’s Ork list was very shooty. Between the Kill Bursta tank, […]
I have not worked on this model in a bit over four weeks but it’s time to get back to painting my Herald of Khorne and making progress on my army. This is a small update to show where I left off, which is further along than my first progress post. So, to show you […]
Saturday was Fratris Salutem, the 40K event I’ve been working on throughout the winter. We only had 10 players of the allotted 20 but considering the type of even it is, 10 is a good number. Not everyone is into a story driven narrative day of gaming…though why they wouldn’t be eludes me The […]
