Mortarion, Primarch of the Death Guard. But I call him Buttermoth. This was my second time painting this model, which is always and interesting experience on such a large figure, spending that much time again on the same model. What did I like from the last one and what would I have done differently? I forgot but here are some pictures.

As we have been playing Warhammer 40,000: Killteam, I have been attempting to speed paint a number of small forces to try out with the game. Before this latest attempt, I painted a squad of three Chaos Marines with some Sharpies a little while ago.One of my most recent attempts has been to paint some Poxwalkers, using Army Painter color primer and Sharpie pens. After priming them green, (with a zenithal overprime of a lighter green primer), I used Sharpies before dipping them using Royal Walnut Satin Mixwax Polyshade. I used normal acrylics to paint the the bases and added some flocked foliage to complete the models. I used a silver Sharpie for the eyes which turned out looking great.In all, they turned out alright, and the approach did save some time over painting them with acrylics. Because the model are Nurgle, the dipping method definitely worked better than it would have on other types of models, where a more clean look is appropriate.
Just finished two Necromunda gangs, Escher and Orlocks. Both gangs were painted to level 3 and level 4 quality. The Gang Leader, the champion and heavy weapon were painted to level 4 quality whist the rest of the gang were painted to level 3 quality.
So one of my Christmas presents was an Ork Megatrakk Scrapjet. I haven’t really had a chance to paint or look at my Ork forces, but when Games Workshop announced their new plastic Ork vehicles and Speed Freeks, I really liked the look of them. So it was nice for Christmas to receive the Megatrakk … Continue reading "Making the Ork Megatrakk Scrapjet"
Armed with clues to its location, the Explorers delve deep into the Blackstone Fortress in search of a hive of its guardians deep in the Null Gravity Abyss!
Over the recent break we had a chance to play a small, three-player, fifty-point game of Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team. There was a Nurgle force, a Chaos Space Marine force, and I played a Necron force. The Nurgle force was comprised of all Nurgle Marines, the Chaos Space Marines included three Chaos Marines and two cultists (one with a Heavy Stubber who stayed back all game), and the Necrons included just three Immortals.The game featured a high-elevation objective, which awarded ten points per turn that it was held unchallenged. There were a number of avenues to approach the objective, and Nurgle made a mad dash to the objective, while the Necrons and Chaos Marines tried to shoot them from afar (with little effect).By mid-game, every force had all assembled near the center objective, and the game turned into a massive, multi-team melee.In the end, the massive melee turned into a boring roll-fest. The three forces were so strong on defense and so weak on offense that the rolling went on

An extra character for my Emperor's Children, this model will be Lord, but in power armour and it's pre-heresy colour scheme.Because well, the purple and gold breaks up the ranks of black and pink nicely after all... And to boot, it comes with a lot of additional bits.
After the bland book of the 4th edition, we jump again 5 years forward and into 6th for this glorious book.And it was the very first Codex Games Workshop ever released with a hard cover!Printed in colour, this 104 page tome contained a whole host of new units for the forces of Chaos, with Dark Apostle's, Heldrake's, Maulerfiend's and of course the venerable Cultist. Truly a whole new arsenal to play with if you are a follower of the Dark Gods.While we would still have to wait for 8th to have the Legions come back in all their uniqueness, this book did do a good job of allowing you to tune your forces due to very extensive Mark options and effects.It did suffer in the end when newer books arrived of the "latest codex wins" syndrome, but that is something that is appearing even now in the current edition. Heck, the Primaris fanboys are getting an updated codex Space Marines soon even! But we, followers of Chaos, are a very adaptive bunch and the forces in 6th could hold their own, albeit at ti
The second box, alongside the Start Collecting I did earlier, I got from Noshi for christmas, it's the demonic deep strikers, Warp Talons.Surely, they aren`t the most effective troops in the current Chaos arsenal, but there is something cool about a bunch of half demon wolverines appearing behind enemy lines all of a sudden...In this clip, I`m opening the box and having a look at the set...
For 5 years we waited until our beloved ruinous powers appeared in 4th edition, after the most excellent "3.5" codex from 2002.And then we got this...The 4th edition Codex was a meagre beast in my opinion. Sure, you could field a highly effective army, but for fluff, you had to rely on painting alone.Because out where the Legions and their specific quirks and traits. All you got for this version was a "vanilla" list where you could slot in the cults marines, but nothing more.While it did contain a lot of background material, a large part "new" from the previous ones (mind you, the 40k story remained as good as stagnant until the current 8th edition), it well, just felt a like a boring book with just a heap of generic force statistics and points to play with. Surely, it was an effective army back in the days, but heck... bland.It followed the still in use format though, being first fluff, then an oversight with explanation what each unit is about, and then the actual army list.In between you
The rift between the two halves of the Imperium is guarded by a Bastion World beset upon all sides by forces within and without. Once again it’s ten minutes to Midnight for the Imperium of man!
