TITH I finished my third Deathwatch Marine, Zaron Devsalax, Deathwatch Black Shield, Watch Company Primus, Watch Fortress Kagreshan (and totally not a loyalist Night Lord). And it was technically today, since I finished him at 1:45am :lol:

Opinions required - I'm starting to properly assemble the Khorne terminator assault squad as I've pictured above. I'm not going to use the usual chaos termi trophy racks - don't think they suit and it feels like an easy option. I also want to make the squad sergeant stand out.

 

So far, he's different from the other guys as he has a chainfist and power axe (the other guys have pairs of lightning claws) and he also doesn't have a bunny-ear helmet (it's a bit of a theme through my army so far that the commanders and sergeants have chaos knight-style helmets).

 

I also want the squad to have a Khorne icon mounted on one of their backs, to count as the Banner of Wrath.

 

So, do I put the Khorne icon on the sergeant to kill two birds with one stone (it'd give him the most vertical height out of the squad), or do I put some kind of unique trophy on the sergeant, and put the icon on another member of the squad?

 

I can't decide.

I'd say give him a trophy, and put the icon on another member.

Gederas, mate lookin' right good.  Surpirsingly spikey for a loyalist but no one can ever fault those talons!  Lookin' right good. 

Leeeets see Robwrath, I do think that I like the different look right now for the sergeant.  Usual stand outs are the built up base itself but I kinda like the idea of a unique trophy for him and then a unit trophy on another, so aye, Gederas I think has the right of it.  And more spikey flashy bits are just good in general.  That way you get two rally different models, too.  

 

As for the 30K lads, they're 16th legion, the Warmaster's own, the Sons of Horus -lets the drum roll and fanfare die down from their self aggrandizement- and I am trying to hold myself back from repainting that cloak.  But I loath hand painting and wet blending red, the airbrush is far easier but that requires even more effort to mask off. Dunno, it might still be worth it.  But he's still only just a bog standard line captain and I've got a marshal to build up pretty soon.

Sadly, I bought them off eBay and they were already based. I COULD rip them off the bases and redo it but that'd be a lot of work. I'm happy to cut and reposition everything north of the waist though. As you've voted 2-0 I'll build the sergeant with a skeleton trophy and have a bannerman too. 

 

I thought it was a Sons of Horus project but then the XV threw me off. I like em. Look mean!

TITH I've been toying with some 650 point lists. A FLGS has 650 point game nights and with soccer winding down I'll have time to start going to them. I've got one that's troop heavy and another one that's a little more elite and has my Contemptor in it.

Man, if models are plastic glued to the base they're usually a nightmare (I've got more than a few 25mm bases with two holes where the feet just pulled the whole top off when I tried to detach them).  Usually why I just pin everything and superglue 'em down. And aye to the bannerman, I'm a pretty big fan of vexillia after all!  ... okay they just make me feel more secure as I can always count on failing leadership tests and just seeing flags on the table is more or less still a pavlovian response by now. Heh, the red cloaks are a bit odd in comparison too for a legion that's usually shown in black. 

 

Ooooh a 650 list, eh Warriorhunter.  That's pretty awesome, rockin' a contemptor and what else? That points level is always gonna be interesting.

I'm currently soaking a chaos terminator lord's legs and base in dettol to see if I can get him completely apart, off the base and with his lower legs separated from the upper legs/waist. Hope it works because I have decided the pose I want for him, looking the other direction than the kit intends. I like to make life difficult for myself.

I like it because it forces you to make choices. There is no way you can take all of the toys that you want at that point level. My Troop heavy list is in my PLOG: http://www.bolterand...20#entry5190517

 

I need to tweak a few things and then I'll post my more elite list with the contemptor.

Oh man, just be careful with that stuff RobWrath, dettol and brake fluid both scare me stupid after a bad incident with a whole army of lizardmen.  Dude, it sounds right good, can't wait to see 'em all done up. Heh, I know the feelin' though.  

 

Nice Warriorhunter, mate, veeeeery nice.  See, I like my marine heavy stuff and tacs/legionnaires above all. I rather like what I'm seeing of that group so aye, tell us how it is, eh?  Sounds like some fun, almost Kill-Team heavy territory. 

 

TiTH, my latest*  Sicaran, Javelin, some christmas prezzies for mates of mine, and some surprises for the 65th.  Aaaah.... gotta go pick up some primer though, and standard speeders, hmmmph.

Dettol is fine. I stripped all the paint off a Land Raider for my son's birthday with it - hell of a mess of manky paint and it stank for several weeks but it worked and didn't damage the plastic at all.

 

And as for my warlord, overnight in the Dettol and a bit of light persuasion...ta-da!

Morg Legs
 
However, the work isn't done because I want him to have right leg straight, left leg stepping up, and currently they come from the hips in the opposite orientation to that.
So...I'm going to have to get a very sharp knife and cut the legs at the hips and reposition. I'm thinking any damage at the back will be hidden by his cloak, and I can add some ornate armour panels or chains at the front.

TITH I took Gederas and Vykes advice and started building my terminator sergeant.

 

Very much WIP but something like this:

I don't truuuust or like strippers*.  So it's usually simple green and high strength alcohol for me, works generally decent.  But Aye, all good, can't wait to see all the fun that it entails. Oh man, see, looks great RobWrath, reaaal nice dude. And yep, cloak and plates always look great. 

 

Well today in the Hobby, I got a set of custom dice made up for my Sons of Horus company. 

 

*.... that's... hmmm.

I thought that was Fairy Power Spray where as Dettol is more oily like pin sol?
