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;

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 😉

Eldar Guardians + Wave Serpent Showcase

Finally finished my Guardian squad 😀 They were good fun to paint, with lots of highlights etc. I especially enjoyed doing the spirit stones.

The first four, plus scatter laser platform and 2 crew. This lot won a painting competition at Games Workshop York this weekend (30th September ’12)

The other 4, finished while the rest were sitting in the window of GW.

The Wave Serpent. I picked this up accidentally when my brother bought some ‘Nids off a friend of his. When we opened the box, as well as a horde of ‘Gaunts, there was a Wave Serpent and a Falcon grav-tank. Both had only been primed black, so I took the opportunity to paint one!

I probably won’t be painting more Eldar for some time, which is a shame, really, but Dark Vengeance is on it’s way!

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!
