Need Some Felt Tip Pens

I'm 43, my kids have moved out, I don't have crayons or felt tip pens around the house any more! At least by now I should be able to keep it within the lines.

Primaris Astartes Dread

More photos of the Primaris Astartes Dread from Fest.
Looks like it's hit middle age. . .


My phones software is basic, I'm only able to change hue on the whole photo.

And some colour variations so you have an idea what it'll look like in other colours.

DA green

Salamander green



Shadow Wolves
Yes I intend to play and see if I'm able to just change colour in a certain area but my phone is fairly basic and over a year old now.

Only 2017 Fest Post

Sorry, normally I'd be all over the photos from the Fest today and would have had several posts up today but I'm kind of shattered today and not keeping on top of anything.
The only one I'm interested in anyway is the new Dread.

Better image

At a guess at least Contemptor size

The Old Guard Have Their Say

Somebody seems to have rattled the cage of the Oldhammer Guard.

This is in responce to the Primaris Astartes size difference.

8th Edition Plans

Handly I'm running late on what had been my plan for this year of building an Astra Militarum army, so I can fold this into 8th ed plan. I'm going halves on a box set and getting the Primaris Astartes out of it, thinking painting them up for either the Nemesis Chapter

or the Mentors Chapter,

will do one officer in grey and blue and one on white and green and see which goes better with the Shadow Highlanders

and then paint the rest up to match. Beyond the box set I'm getting the Dreadnought that's been mentioned but beyond that I'm not thinking of adding anything more to the Primaris Astartes currently. I'm also buying the 2 Imperial books and the novel on the 17th, I plan to wait for the Harlequins to get their own book and I've begun to think about selling the Eldar army.

Shadow Highlanders General

Monday night I painted the converted Commissar up as the General for my Astra Militarum army.
Lt Gen Torres Holborn of the Shadow 72nd Highlanders.

Day light was that bad yesterday morning that I had to use a gorram torch to light the mini.

When the new rules drop I might swop that bolt pistol for one of the Prespero ones, depending on cost.
