Owing To A Schedule Clash The Monthly Vow Has Been Changed, Again

Okay having decided to bounce the dreads to "later" so I can get another Dread Filled Month in (can you believe it's been over a year since the last one?), when I get the parts to do 3 Redemptor Dreadnoughts to go with the 4 I've already got waiting to go depending on when I might hold off the 2nd lot of Boltstorm Aggressors till this point as well. So instead of the dreads I'm getting on with the metal Terminator Librarian Captain and Lieutenant for The Lion's Blades Primaris Company, Cypherella for the chaos army and the 3 flamestorm Aggressors for the Star Leopards chapter.

Lore Question

So does that mean Salamanders don't have a separate Scout company, each company raises it's own Scouts, or the Scouts look out over the 7th settlement?

The New Titan Maniples

I have my copy of Titan Death and have got as far as the new maniples. I wanted to finish off Good Omens before I opened it up. Got to say a 3rd maniple of a Regia battle line maniple might be a target for the 2nd half of the year, just need the 2 Warlords and anot her Warhound box, and there is a distinct possibility that 2 more Reavors will be bought at some point to field a Corsair battle line maniple.

BBQ Night On The Rock

I started this mid afternoon as a proof of concept build, but had to stop as my youngest was coming round for tea, after she'd been packed off I broke out the dremmel. I'll point out something that people telling me to cut them down didn't notice and that's the shoulders are different lengths. The easiest way to get around it was to cut the cannons on either side of the pipe link that's underneath and it looks like I got a good fit as both look to be about the same length in the overhead shot, and I only shattered 2 cutting discs doing it. A trim down with a file on the magnets has left both cannons fitting much better, now I just need to get the actual dread out to see how these arms fit to it.

The Inceptors

Concentrated on getting the white done tonight, around working for a full hour. Assembly was done on Sunday along with Intercessors and Hellblasters which are going into The Star Leopards.
The White was done in my usual manner of building up from an ushabati bone base coat, I skipped the nuln oil wash and just went straight onto the screaming skull before getting 2 coats of white scar on them, I  will do the blue, red and bolt gun metal tomorrow around at least one other Primaris for the Lion's Blades and or going over the chaos codex to see what the planned chaos army will look like.

Monthly Vow, 14th Of January To The 12th Of February.

Plan A for the coming month; I've got the 3 Inceptors made up for the Hounds, and 6 Intercessors and Hellblasters that I'm planning on painting for the Star Leopards, there's also the female Cypher on its way, there's a plasma Dreadnought on its way that's going to be painted for The Luna Wolves and I'm buying a standard dread that I'll be painting for the pre Heresy Death Guard these are both going into the 30k Dreadnought army, the missile launcher is going to be converted to a flamestorm cannon for the Seige Dreadnought I already have. There's also an Ironclad dreadnought to be bought that I'll be making into the old kit bash of Sister Stern, this is going into the Astartes Strike force.
Beyond those there are 2 more Warhounds coming that I'll be painting for the Palidus Mor Legion. Further Conquest magazine releases are another scenery sprue and then there's some more Reavors the week after, which I'm aiming to get 5 of.
That seems a lot to keep me busy with.

Review Time

I started out with the Harry Potter stuff I did Luna Lovegood And Cho Chang first before the doing the 4 Death Eaters you get in the main box and doing Filtch, with him carrying a lantern I had to add some on source lighting to the mini.

With Dumbledor  asking the oldest how she wanted him painting, she opted for the light blue grey colours, I really do like how I've painted this one, it's one of my best efforts. The same night I also did the spiderlings,  with so much being black, grey and brown, I wanted some colour somewhere so went green with the swarm bases and a big yellow one for the boss spiderling base.

Then I plucked up the courage to have a go at the Weasley siblings hair, Ginni had some inspiration from an on line friend, it's a Khorne red base coat with a couple of agrax earthshade washes, Fred and George's hair had a base coat of Wazdakka red and a wild rider red dry brush.

Hermione's scarf was done yellow as I was worried that I wouldn't get the stripes lined up, and to give it some colour as everything is mostly grey.

Ron was done the same as the other students and the inside of the robes gives it some colour.

Harry was the same, the glasses where a bit of stretch for me to do.

For some colour I did a spare ranger I had.

And back to black for the flamestorm Aggressors for the Lion's Blades.

The first dreadnought of the year was the Possessed Contemptor that I did for the Word Bearers.

The Solitaire options got rebased to make them stand out.

At the end of the month my mood dropped and needed a lift so I jumped ahead on some stuff that I had planned to start this month, with the Primaris Lieutenant and the Librarian Terminator for the Primaris Company as well as the Terminator with counts as lightening claws. 

And lastly I did one of the scenery sprues from Conquest , I painted these up for the Hounds.
