Okay, so when I said I’d finished the Guard paint queue I was fibbing a little. There was one unit left: my version of Sergeant ‘Stonetooth’ Harker. Made from a Chaos cultist and a Bretonnian head, the heavy stubber was cut down to form a heavy bolter, and a space marine bolt round was added … Continue reading Harker’s Heavy Bolter Sings…
Finishing up the Guard paint queue are these five. In the front row are Rein and Raus from Blackstone Fortress, with Espern Locarno the navigator from the same on the rear left. I’ll probably use the navigator as an astropath, rather than the special character. Another commissar has been assigned to ensure that the troops … Continue reading More auxilia join the army
It was the 5th February 2020 and I was perusing the GW website, blissfully unaware of the gathering clouds that would herald the arrival of that horseman Pestilence. Looking through the Imperial Guard section I was somewhat disheartened to see that the models had not really seen an update since the early 2000’s and was … Continue reading He drew first blood…
Another squad done; this time some servitors to help the Tech-priest enginseer out. These ones were built from a couple of genestealer cult models and two chaos cultists. Armed with a plasma cannon and a multi-melta, the two gun servitors are accompanied by a simple servo arm equipped servitor and a combat servitor. I went … Continue reading Nearly New Year, Same Army – Servitors
Last post before Christmas! I’ve been a bit more motivated for the last week or so, and have finally slapped some paint on the Escher gang. Back in the 3rd edition Codex Armageddon, you could take Hive Gang Militia for a planetary defence force based army. These women were conscripted and placed with the 9th … Continue reading Diana’s Riggers
Quick, read this post! It’ll only be available in its current format until its still available afterwards… Seems Games Workshop are up to their old tricks. They are still putting together ‘bundles’ that are available for a limited time, where the exact same contents are still available on the web store for…the exact same price! … Continue reading GW Time limited post!
Here is my Rogue Trader Crusade list, ready to set forth into the unknown and remind the xenos species that their stuff actually belongs to the Imperium (for a modest finders fee of course…). Here are the models I have ready (mostly) for a 50 power level initial crusade force. Leading the expedition is an … Continue reading For the Emperor? A Rogue Trader Crusade Order of Battle
Back at the end of 2020 I wrote a post about my plans for getting my Imperial Guard painted up and playing some games of 40k and Kill Team in a narrative campaign https://lasgunsandroses.wordpress.com/2020/12/28/march-to-victory/. For a myriad of reasons this didn’t go according to plan (as usual…), however I’ve managed to get quite a few … Continue reading What’s the point of painting miniatures?
The third (and final?) command squad is done. These are hoary old veterans forming the Company command squad for Major <TBD>. The bodies came from the last remaining Bretonnian men at arms that I had. The vox caster has the GSC Nexos comms device instead of the backpack for a more low tech feel. The … Continue reading The final Command?
Managed to get a bit of painting in between bouts of illness. First up, I changed out the power fist on the Scions sergeant for a power sword, and cut down the box operators back pack to add a bedroll(?). I’d originally built these as the Drop Force Imperator set up, but they will now … Continue reading Support staff and bodyguard
