1/1/17 New Years Day Review

Time to review what I haven't done this year, and I'll start with the Harlequins

Which I totally failed to do anything on. Still need Skyweavers and Voidweavers to fill out those Masques. I'm sort of thinking that with the Death Masque box out I ll be able to pick up both weavers fairly cheap.

The Chaos Dreadnoughts Family Tree is possibly going to get a possessed Contemptor to finish it off.

The Exodites of Telvig are just missing the support weapons and maybe a Wraith Knight with Wraith Blades and Guards.

The Knights of Blood are missing 3 tactical squads to make them up to a battle company , then the Marine Codex and both the BA suppliment to see what formations I can make, might also pick up another Predator to fill out a squadron of them.

Hopefully the Shadow 72nd Highlanders will get some work done on them and some serious reinforcement incoming.

The Cypher Chosen Formation I'm currently working , a few need arms and guns sorting and it will not be WYSIWYG.

The full Lion's Blades 3rd Company, well I say full I've found out I'm 2 bolter marines short on the dev squads which are getting painted soon.

Beyond those 2 and a single missile launcher marine for choice this army is actually finished

The 1st Company, well I need 10 storm bolter Terminators to make them up to 50 then I'll start thinking of Assault Terminators for the next 50, I can see this sliding into 2018 to be honest

The 2nd Company, rare to hear this I know, but I'm happy with just 3 attack squadrons, I may get some Black Knights and a few Land Speeders to fill out the support squadron.

And lastly the tanks, still after a Whirlwind and a Vindicator to finish off those 2 Hammer Of Caliban formations, I'm still looking at getting 2 more flyers to get a Silence squadron although to be honest, I have a feeling that this might just slip to 2018 as well.

Happy New Year reader!

2nd Company Master For Chosen Formation

I'd started this one at the same time as the first Company Master with the Halfords Primer then I gave the robe a coat of Ushabati bone, when it was dry I gave it a nuln oil wash.

I left it at that for a bit then tonight I went and started dry brushing the robe with ushabati bone for about 2/3rds of Winter Solider.

The last 1/3rd of the film I spent touching the other bits.

Middle Hammer Company Master

For the Cypher Chosen Formation I've cobbled together 3 squads of 8 so far and have only bought 3 marines so far.
First finished is the middle hammer company master from the late 90's, I've green stuffed it into the base so can't go and check the date but I think it's 97.

I've got the DV Company Master and the white metal , robed version of the captain as well to pad these units out.

The next up project is the 3 veteran squads

Outside of plasma guns, there are going to be plenty of weapons on display that aren't actually there, an auto cannon and rota cannon per squad along with bolters.

December 26th; Where Do We Go From Here?

Sit at the bar drinking iced White Russians.
Looking at where I've got to I'm thinking of getting each the army out and photographing them all, separately as I don't think I've got space for them to be all in one place at one time, this is for the new year's post.
Build wise, I'm priming the captains tonight

Just waiting to get the 3rd captain from eBay and I'll be moving the lightning claws captain over to this formation which l think takes me up to 24 marines leaving a box of Veterans and a careful trawling of ebay to get an old robed marine to complete this unit oh and lots of plasma guns. Basically there are going to be lots of guns on display in these 3 squads but anything that isn't a plasma will be a bolter. WYSISYG this will not be.

Budgeting Issues

Having had a £150 hole blown in my household budget for December and January, never mind Christmas, my buying power is rather limited, but I still want to get on with hobby stuff. About the only thing left for me to do is to make a plasma heavy Veterans formation from the Cypher data slate. I dug out the robed marines I do have and found 20, I've got an agreement with a mate to sort out a DA Veteran box when he next orders from Elemental Games, and I spent just over £10 on 2 classic marines from eBay so just need 3 more and I'll need to check my plasma gun numbers as well as I intend to get 3 full Chosen Squads to round out this formation.

Out Of Production. 16/12/16

I was just on the GW Web store looking for chaos back packs and plasma guns and saw a few things that are now or currently out of production.

As I understand it the sonic blasters have been oop for a while now.

New From Forge World 16/12/16


One of the most heavily armed and armoured of all the Knight chassis in service, the Acastus Knight Porphyrion rivals even the Scout Titans of the Legio Titanicus in terms of size and power. Armed with weapons that can obliterate even the most heavily armoured target, it is truly a force to be reckoned with.

Taller than even the towering Cerastus Knights, the Acastus Knight Porphyrion is a dominating presence on the battlefield. The Knight’s main weapons are a pair of twin-linked Magna Lascannon, devastating weapons an order of magnitude more powerful than even the Sollex pattern Heavy Lascannon of the Mechanicum Taghmata.

Where a Knight Paladin may carry a heavy stubber as a secondary weapon, the Porphyrion is armed with a pair of autocannon which are often replaced with Lascannon when additional anti-armour firepower is necessary. It’s Ironstorm Missile Pod has a substantially larger payload than those found on more common Knights, though in battle-zones where the danger from airborne assault is apparent, this system can be replaced with powerful Helios defence missiles.

Rules for using the Acastus Knight Porphyrion in both Mechanicum Taghmata and Questoris Knights armies in Horus Heresy games can be downloaded from the Download tab on this page.

The Acastus Knight Porphyrion is a complete, multi-part resin kit. It includes several optional secondary weapons.
