Forge World Only

I’ve been a bit lazy getting this post sorted out, but its been partly due to being really busy in real life recently.

Now, a few weeks ago, a whole bunch of #warmongers, myself included decided it would be an awesome idea to build and paint armies consisting exclusively of Forge World models (unless they don’t make something, see the rules here).

My army of choice will be pre-heresy Imperial Fists. Unfortunately, I haven’t got the Horus Heresy book for the Legion army list, so I’ll be using Codex:SMs for the rules. Not buying the book leaves more money for models after all!

Here’s the approximate list;

10-man Legion Tactical Squad

HEAVY SUPPORT

10-man Legion Devastator Squad

2 Missile Launchers
Lascannon

Total: 1750 points

I’ve not made a lot of progress really, due to life getting in the way of hobby time 😦 Just assembled half a squad of Tactical Marines. But, I do have something quite special on the way soon! Stay tuned.

Also my 50th blog post, might do a giveaway 😉

Angron & Horus rules

Via Faeit 212

Pics of the rules for Angron & Horus from “Betrayal” have cropped up online. All sources are anonymous.

Horus’ “Worldbreaker” will kill stuff. Period.

Forge World Angron

Aaaand the first of the Primarchs announced by Forgeworld for the upcoming Horus Heresy book is Angron, Primarch of the World Eaters Legion.

I personally love this miniature because it’s so dynamic, and displays the berserker nature of Angron, who is smashing his own men aside to get to his foes. Included is a scenic base with an indent in it, in which can be placed Angron on his 40mm base. Also, uncommon for a Forgeworld product, Angron has his own bawks.
This awesome miniature of the Primarch will be available to buy at Games Day UK this Sunday (September 23rd) for the unfortunately hefty price of £50.00.

Scratchbuilding a Titan

I have begun to build a Warhound Titan, using cereal box card, PVC pipe, various household items, 40k bitz, and the templates found on www.build-40k.com The Titan will be of the Legio Crucius, aptly named in Low Gothic “The Warmongers”.

Here’s a visual log of my progress.

Using bits of plastic coat-hanger and drinking straws for supports/pistons.

It was at this point I got a glue gun, which makes assembly a heck of a lot easier.

Chaos Marine appears frequently for size comparison purposes.

And that’s everything as of now! The project is kind of being put on hold as I have exams coming up, and studying will be a more productive use of my time, no matter how much fun building a Titan is!

New Forge World 40k stuff

Forge World have just put up these awesome 40k things on their site. The Deimos-Pattern Predator Executioner.

I’m not a fan of the Deimos-Pattern hull, but the rules are sweet! (found here -> ) A Predator with a Plasma Destroyer or a Heavy Conversion beamer. With the HCB the Predator would be an excellent long-range tank. My favourite part or the model are the cool sponsons, drum-fed Heavy Bolters similar to the Contemptor Dreadnought ones. Unfortunately, the kit is quite expensive at £46.

The second new product is a pack of 2 Space Marine Apothecaries, one in MKII armour and one in MKIV.
They are quite characterful models, and have excellent details. I especially like the torso of the MKIV Marine. The kit costs £20.

Both kits are available for pre-order for despatch on the 27th of April.

Stormeagle on general release

Forgeworld have announced the release date for their Stormeagle gunship. The model is currently available to preorder here, for dispatch on the 27th of April, at the price of £80, which isn’t bad. The model is also compatible with Forgeworld’s range of Land Raider doors, for that personalised look.
They have also produced experimental rules, which can be found here.

More pictures can be found on it’s page on the Forgeworld site.
Forgeworld have also produced a video, with suitably dramatic music and some nice, if dark, shots of the model, but is overall a bit meh.

Stormeagle Rules

Reblogged from The Shell Case, rules for the new Forgeworld Space Marine Stormeagle gunship.

The Real Banner

My replacement banner for my Ultramarines Venerable Dreadnought from Forge World arrived today! I’m rather pleased with it, seeing as I was disappointed last time. (see The “Banner”)

Once again, it was very well packaged, which was actually suitable this time, because they banner is a much larger part.

I’m going to repaint my Dread to bring it up to my current standard, to go with the new banner. Small amount of cleaning up to do, removal of flash etc. but thank you Forgeworld!
