Previously Grey Knights were under a codex called Demonhunters. This includes Grey Knights, Inquisitions, Assassin and Stormtroopers. Ever since Grey Knights had its own codex (cant recall which edition was that, haha), the design style of the icons and symbols of the tanks were different from the old Inquisition base theme. Have always been particlular with the design and symbols, only recently that I decided to update my Grey Knight Rhino and Grey Knights Landraider to the current theme. In the old Rhino I did (see below), I added lots of accessories and Inquisition icons to the Rhino tank itself. For the update, I decided to remove all those accessories and icon, maintaining the same colour scheme, but update it to the current Grey Knights codex design. When the accessories were removed, it was left with glue stain and dent holes, I had to fill the stain gaps and holes with putty and sand the surface flat back. Then after I painted over with the original Citadel Bleached Bone colour. With my Grey Knigh
Jimmy from my FLGS Battleline Tabletop Gaming (https://www.facebook.com/BattlelineTTG/) is back with his Astartes to face my Adeptus Mechanicus in another Kill Team Arena game!
40K Lord of Change! How can I not feel excited about getting started on this project! As requested, the colour scheme was to be similar to that of Games Workshop’s painted Lord of Change. The assembly of the model was not difficult. But I must say, I was impressed with the way the assembly was designed and developed. The jointing section lines were all well hidden, thanks to the amazing assembly design and mould design construct! I managed to keep the arms and body as separate sub assembly. Once all painted up then I assembled and glued them together. I guess with big models like this, the next usual issue would be transporting it for a game. With all the fragile parts, its definitely a pain transporting it! Cheers!
Derek returns with the Adeptus Mechanicus to face the forces of the Alpha Legion in this 1500pt Fleet Engagement!
The past month saw the Emperor's Children march to war once again.And this time, it was in our club League.I faced the Drukhari and came victorious, and while the force wasn`t painted completely yet, I based my trophy on the black / red / gold scheme the painted parts of his force already featured.A second battle put me against Mike's Orks, and I decided to use the red and blue colours for the trophy in "honour" of his Gorkanought which caused me a lot of headaches.So a decent month, with two trophies offered to the Prince of Pleasure...
This year I'm making my second attempt to fill out the entire bingo card. Here's how things are shaping up after the first quarter... Read more »
Last week I managed to arrange a trial game of Killteam with Kev at t'Club. A matched play between my Tau and Kev's Genestealer Cult.Just a quick set down with a smattering of terrain and had at it to run through the rules and get a flavour of the game.The scenario was a simple enough affair with each of the teams looking to get off the opposite side of the board with as many of the troops as you could muster before breakpoint. Most off wins.The two teams were pretty much opposites with the Tau shooty and the Genestealers choppy, so I had to shoot as many as possible before coming to blows, so Kev advanced as quickly as possible keeping to cover and I stayed put and shot lots hoping to break him before he got any of his team off the board.Needless to say, this was only partially successful as the board was pretty small so the Genestealers managed to get into combat though not until round 4, but only after losing half their number to the Tau shooting. But once reached, my Tau went down pretty quickly in c
The past friday I took to the field again in the club league that I'm running at TSA, facing Mike with his Orks.And the game would become the final one using the current Codex Heretic Astartes, as the new and updated edition should be arriving by post next week.Of course, I had Iwan throw the dice for the scenario, and becursed he rolled Cloak and Shadows, so for the second time out of three league games so far my gunline will be hampered with the -1 to hit.I had brought along the same force as I did against the Drukhari a few weeks ago, but my suprise was big when Mike unpacked his force... barely 25 boys and a lot of big war engines, including a "squiggoth" spider and a Gorkanought, including aerial support and all.To make matter worse, he would have the first turn as he was actually faster deployed then me as a result, and stuffed the big walker in reserve...Turn 1The Orks began their advance, hellbend on taking out my Rapier platforms as soon as possible. And he did, destroying both the laser destro
KDM Dragon king With the lava effect base done and dusted on the Dragon king, and with the final little cleanup tasks completed he is ready to face down the survivors of Kingdom death. I have also painted up the four dragon king armour survivors and their bases to partially match the beast they are made from. KDM is very monster hunter in its approach to armour and weapons, Rip creatures apart and use the remains to make gear. Bonus model – Knight armour of brother Nixios With so much of my focus being on the Void Jackals it would...continue reading
It’s time for another mid-tier Meeting Engagement. This time my Warp Runners deploy a Corsair maniple to take on Derek’s Tiger Eyes Regia Maniple as the underdogs!
Looking positively dashing in his ascendance day finery, Rauss Arnatt, neophyte of the Kabeiri, raises his icon for his brethren to cheer and whoop at. Arnatt is feeling good, and he's sure the magus gave him a little wink earlier.A neophyte icon bearer is a super useful addition to my cult, usable in Warhammer 40k, Necromunda and Kill Team.These days there is a huge store of bits available for the genestealer cult fan. Once, arming up the old Bob Olley hybrids might have been a chore, but no longer. They fit suspiciously well on most of the vintage boys. This particular, rather beefy 4th generation hybrid is one I think well suited to hefting a big heavy cult icon, and I've wanted to paint this one for a while. After some consideration I gave him a nice big phosphor blast pistol, which also fits neatly with the adeptus mechanicus flavour of the Kabeiri. He should be carrying an autogun or shotgun, but rule of cool won out.It took a fair bit of sanding and cutting down on the arms to allow for his unusually w
Jimmy from my FLGS Battleline Tabletop Gaming (https://www.facebook.com/BattlelineTTG/) brings his Astartes to face the Death Guard in Kill Team Arena!
The iconic anti-hero himself, new and improved. This kit was a blast to assemble and had some hidden easter eggs that provided a unique look at the tactical dreadnought armor. Back in black and lets see if he can put a new spin on that old Vigilus invasion.Enjoy!
Warlord Titan & Armigers With the final details done on the Warlord I am going to consider these guys done for now, the bases of the Armigers are going to be matched to part of my diorama project while the Warlord will have his base painted to match a pair of titanicus warhounds that I am planning to paint up in the future to act as his hounds. Both armigers and the warlord next to brother Nixios who shares there colour schemeRex Monte with the jackal symbol on his left shoulder. On the right shoulder sits the heraldry of the...continue reading
Simply put, it feels as though Vigilus Ablaze sets out and accomplishes most of its goals. Whatever happens after the events of this story, this is one book I'm not too disgruntled to be carrying around to most of my games. I foresee it getting plenty of use as it brings further life to my games. [...] The post Warhammer 40,000: Vigilus Ablaze – Review appeared first on Tabletop Games UK.
