Tigris Viridi - Warhound Scout Titan

A second, old Armorcast Warhound Titan arrived in the mail for me a week and a half ago. It's really all I've been working on since. By this past weekend I thought I'd settled on colours and had most of the green and purple painted...Then I decided the green was too dark after all...Not nearly enough contrast -and looked positively dull next to Pardus Purpura...And so I started again with MORE test bits and settled on a lighter colourAnd started all over again... mostly...I have to say I'm much happier with the lighter colour now.So this is Tigris Viridi. Commanded by Princeps Mozzer. The crew is rounded out by two Moderati; Moderati Joyce (Steersman) and Moderati Marr (Sensors, Communications, Weapons) and two Tech Priests Ro-Urk350 and Pom-Fret681.Tigris Viridi joins it's partner, Pardus Purpura in the Eritque Arcus Maniple of Legio Amare Feles.Pardus Purpura is commanded by Princeps Smythe.

So This Kind of Happened...

Because I'm a special kind of stupid...At 75 Power Level each, this could be my entire force for the upcoming Apocalypse event in the new year...The original one I have settled on calling Pardus Purpura... This one will be Tigris Viridi! They are part of the Eritque Arcus Maniple of the Legio Amare Feles...Warhound titans hunt in packs, right...?I SWEAR I'm not doing the entire maniple!!Coming Soon to Tim's Miniature Wargaming Blog:Maybe another painted Warhound Titan!!Some new guys are coming over tonight to try out Wrath & Glory... maybe there'll be post about that...?Other hobby business has been slow. I just can't seem to shake this stomach bug...

Cadians

...or some sort of generic 40K Imperial Guard...I finished off the last of the old-school metal radians I have this week. Well... ALMOST all of them... there is still a standard bearer who is going to need some extra work and an artillery officer... But in terms of the sharp-end infantry grunts... well, THEY are all finished!!The new (and yet, not-so-new) guys.These are all older metal Cadians from Games Workshop. I picked them up off eBay not so long ago - along with a few of the others I've already painted. A couple I picked up from my friend Paul when he was offloading them a few years ago. Some of the others, however, are some of the oldest GW figures I own - the "Rogue Trader Era" ones. I striped and repainted them in the last few years to use as "veterans".The Entire Force!(I'm not going to say "so far" because I really have no desire to add any more to this. I already have THREE OTHER Imperial guard forces - Tallarn, Guaiacan/Catachan, and Valhallan - I really don't need a fourth! Of course, I probably

Adeptus Mechanicus Sicarians and Tech Priests

Shortly after picking up Kill Team back in July, I picked up a box of Adeptus Mechanicus Sicarians. Though the box says Sicarian Ruststalkers, they can also be built as Sicarian Infiltrators. This is great as they are both options for a Adepts Mechanicus Kill Team and I could buy one box and have a few of each as options to add to the Mechanicus Kill Team that came with the Core Box. Last night I finally finished up the last few Rust Stalkers and Infiltrators (I had finished one of the Infiltrators when I was working on the Skitarri)New Adeptus Mechanicus SicariansSicarian Infiltrator PrincepsSicarian InfiltratorSicarian RuststalkersMore recently I picked up the Tech Priest Dominus Mechanicus Commander set when Kill Team: Commanders came out and I've painted him up as a commander. I also happen to have a regular Tech Priest that my friend Paul gave me for my birthday in February - presumably to serve with my Imperial Guard regiments - but as they turned out to be an commander option for the Mechanicus Ki

MORE Moon Base Klaisus - STC -Ryza Pattern Ruins

I finished up the STC-Ryza Pattern Ruins that came with the Moon Base Klaisus box set. These are all the wall bits that came with the boxed set. The was also a crate with the  Inquisition symbol on it (who knows what they could be storing in there) and trapdoor/access hatch (which, I have just realized, I haven't yet painted... so this isn't TOTALLY done!?)I tried to do them in buildings sets with separate colours - for a little variety.As I was setting this out on the kitchen table to take pics (too big to set up outside in the better light...) Finnegan noted that there probably ought to be rubble as there weren't many weapons that would destroy walls, but leave no detritus behind... I agreed, but pointed out GW was probably trying to find a balance between "realism" and "playability" (and cost!).I figure this represents the remaining terrain that matters in the game - the stuff that gives real cover (although, arguably, piles of rubble could also give cover) but to model all that would make the set ver

Sector Munitorum Kill Zone

This week I've mostly been working on the Sector Munitorum Kill Zone terrain for Kill Team. I was hoping to have enough terrain for two small Kill Zone boards, and with the completion of these containers, I think I probably have enough to get by.The rush to get stuff done is because I'm going to be running a little Kill Team campaign next week. for the last week of summer vacation a couple of the kids friends (Da Boyz) will be coming over everyday this coming week - Monday to Friday - to hang out for the day and play Kill Team and hang out and paint miniatures and stuff. I'm calling it Kamp Kill Team. Stay tuned as I will post daily reports of the shenanigans we get up to!Eight new Munitorum shipping containers. Six of them came from the Sector Munitorum Kill Zone box, the other two came with the Drop Force Imperator box. The smaller crates and barrels I painted previously. I still have a few Galvanic Servohaulers from the box to assemble and paint and a PILE moreI tried tagging a few - but only a few as
