The Emperor’s Loyal Hounds Of War

One of the new Chapters created for Guilliman's Indomitus Crusade, The Loyal Hounds Of War have gene seed that's is proven to be from the Ultramarines, they have styled and trained themselves in many schools of war, favouring missions of extermination and not having to worry about collateral damage, Guilliman's investigation into the province of their gene seed points to The Nemesis Chapter alongside other, wilder elements of the Ultramarines Chapters.
In Void engagements they favour boarding actions via torpedoes and landing craft.
So far they have been fighting on the fringe of the Crusade, away from others and as far from Imperial over sight as possible.
Within the chapter itself there is a strong sense of brotherhood between the Primaris Astartes, they do follow the Codex, but the brotherhood fostered within the chapter is greater than the Codex and strike forces from the Hounds will feature squads draw from various companies, and a flexible approach to combat situations.

Numpty Moment

I started the Lieutenant yesterday and I seem to gave clipped the wrong head off the sprue, I painted up a helmeted head, despite painting the helmet on the hip, I saw it, I just didn't take it in.

So now I have an issue, I like the white and blue of The Emperor’s Loyal Hounds Of War, I like the Nemesis Chapter colours and background which I can borrow elements of for TELHOW,

and I like the Mentors Chapter colours and their background fits with the Primaris Astartes, with the experimental mind set of the Chapter.
And so I'm open to suggestions, I like all 3 options but can't really paint the sets I have in 3 different colours.

Comments welcome.

Captain and Ancient

I wanted to see how these colours looked on the Primaris Astartes, I picked the Pre Heresy World Eaters colours of white and blue, and the Mentors Chapter colours of white and green, I have one more to do in the Nemesis Chapter colours of Eshin Grey and blue.

Primed all the sprues.

Rather than go with the banner on the Ancient I've used an axe instead, the banner is going on Brother Bethor, and will call him another Lieutenant.

I rather like how the Captain looks like in these colours. Tonight and tomorrow I'll be making up a Lieutenant and painting it in Nemesis Chapter colours, and will have a poll in 40k For Grown Ups on Facebook.

The 8th Ed Haul

Picked up my 8th edition goodies yesterday, and was way to tired to do anything with them. 😢
So after a good night's sleep and a few chores I'll be off down the park later to have a read in the sunshine of the rule book.

Official Re-Casts For BloodBowl

Sorry, made to order! Not re-cast.
Posted by Forge World on the Community Page on the 18th of June 2017. So by my reading these will be available for order from the Saturday the 24th of June to the the Friday the 30th of June 2017

For one week only, four classic teams returning to Blood Bowl thanks to Made To Order, giving aspiring coaches even more choice when building their personal league and allowing veteran fans to bring their favourite faction into the new edition. Eat your players with the Vampire team, or throw them into the end zone with a full roster of Ogres, or outmanoeuvre your foes with the Wood Elves.

Finally, Blood Bowl’s worst players and best cooks return with the Halflings. Both they and the Wood Elves will have access to some much-needed bulk with the Treeman Star Player, also available in next week’s Made To Order waves. Rules for Ogres, Vampires, Wood Elves and halflings can be found via our free Teams of Legend Supplement.

If you’re interested, make sure to get these models while you can next week – they’ll be available for one week only!

If you’re new to Blood Bowl, find out more about the game on

Rather than do the sensible thing and go to bed after work yesterday, I got the train to Preston and dropped in to the GW, sorry Warhammer store

It was a bit busy at 10am.
I bought the Dark Imperium novel

And topped up my paints that I need to get the Primaris Astartes painted.
It took some time to get to the till.
Once home I found issue 2 of Freeway Fighter waiting for me! Better get issue 4 pre ordered.

Just about to start the novel now, as I was finishing the latest book from Andy McDermott, a Chase and Wild book; The Midas Legacy. Slightly different from his other tales in the series.
