This is a bit of a shout-out to Kalrath, who is working on a truly beautiful rendition of an Ultramarine army with a classic, classic 2nd edition look. Go check out his thread Old Dogs, New Tricks

Now, back when I started the hobby, 2nd edition had been around for about maybe 18 months. Codex Chaos was yet to be released, and only when that happened did I settle on an army. I played the crap out of this game, and even when 3rd edition was released, I remember playing 2nd edition battles with a particular friend. Even during 3d edition, I made a goofy SM army specially to be played with 2nd edition rules± the Purple Marauders. Nyar! I used to work in a shop called Fantasty Fanatics, and there was a group of about 8 guys there with which we formed a hard core group of gamers. 40K, WFB, BloodBowl, Necromunda, BFG, we did it all, but we also read comics, played Vampire the Masquerade and AD&D, and yes, Magic. Basically we were Ultrageeks. #oldschoolgeek

 

Sadly, I lost contact with those guys when I went to university. I got all serious, but in recent years - as this veritable tome of a thread attests - the hobby juices have been flowing liberally. I also got into contact with that same group of guys again, and even started a new pen&paper V:tM campaign with them! Super fun times indeed!

 

But also, and this is the main reason I'm writing this post, I made plans to do a 2nd edition battle with my buddy Joris! So when I visited my parents the other day, I snuck into the attic where I have a couple boxes of my high school stuff - and found my copy of Warhammer 40,000 2nd Edition and Dark Millenium! WOOOOOO

 

temporary_zpsnbcy3soo.jpg

 

Everything is in there, counters, dice, templates, the whole sh-bang. So guess who is fielding his über-beardy Icon Bearer on Bike with the Plague Banner???? That's right THIS GUY!!! msn-wink.gifbiggrin.pngbiggrin.png

 

Anyway, thanks again to frater Kalrath, who fired up my love for 2nd edition. thumbsup.gif

@ Malcharion: Thanks, buddy! Your night lords and charcharodons are quite impressive, to say the least!

 

 

@ SalvationOfReason: Oh no worries, I have another unit of Grav devastators and some schmexy Heavy Bolter toting dues at the ready!

 

@ Thrillhouse: You comment made me go :D It's true, I think. The cool thing is that Krauty and I started plogging here aroudn the same time, and our threads are around the same number of comments and views, too. :tu:

 

@ kizzdougs: Thanks! It's all in the details as they say? I wish you'd name another one of my dudes! Perhaps a guy from XIII Assault Squad?

The complete Havoc squad is looking fantastic -- I envy your speed! The biggest surprise is how the champion's helmet ended up looking so good when I am really not a fan of that particular head you chose. Fantastic work!

 

I can also sympathise with your 2nd edition nostalgia: The Codex Imperialis that came with the starter box is still a brilliant sourcebook for the 40k universe, and the rulebook featured the most iconic colour section of the 90s ;) Come to think of it, I actually wrote a fairly wordy love letter about those books at one point, if you'll excuse the shameless plug...

 

As for the actual game, I only really remember that one time when I couldn't hit anything for 95% of the game, and when I finally managed to take out my buddy Phil's tank, my cry of triumph was cut short when the burning wreck proceeded to bounce around my army, taking with it a sizeable chunk of my force. Gah, good times! ;)

@ sockwithaticket: Yeah it's part of the reason why I really liek them for my Night Lords - they provide the perfect canvas for terror markings. thumbsup.gifsmile.png In my mind, the Havocs should be heavy set, as they have to carry around these heavy weapons. It's the raptors and CC marines that wear the lighter stuff, in my mind at least. msn-wink.gif

And the Mk. III torsos are a great canvas for lightning it would seem. Another great looking squad, they look too brutal to be standing back shooting things!

I hadn't thought about it it like that, like many I always go with 'Getting up close and personal? Armour up', but then I suppose dexterity and manouevrability are also handy in a scrap and GW did up-armour the Devastators with the recent kit (is it that recent anymore? Time travels strangely in the warp...)

I've had a bit of a busy week, applying for a new position and still recovering from my spinal disc injury, but I have finally managed to complete another unit: 

 

VIII Assault Biker Squad

Consisting mostly of relatively young astartes, VIII Assault Biker squad functions as Fifth Company's a shock assault unit. It is frequently deployed in missions where decisive blows to enemy elite units and armour is required. The unit has developed a friendly rivalry with VII Assault Biker squad, a sentiment that is encouraged by Sergeant Langsdov.

WP_20161114_018_zpsxihhxurl.jpg

 

WP_20161114_017_zpshhiaxe6b.jpg

 

Veteran Sergeant - Askel Langsdov - Lord Commander Eidolon

As a promising initiate, Sergeant Langsdov was inducted into 8th Company, where he quickly rose to the rank of Sergeant. He was noted by his superiors for his inspiring leadership and battlefield cunning, displaying an aptitude for precision strikes. As such, Captain Landa requested him specifically to take command of VIII Assault Squad, after the death of its former Sergeant. Despite some initial reluctance by the rest of the squad to accept a new member in their ranks, Langsdov has proven himself to be an inspiring leader. His years of service, combined with his friendly rivalry with the commanding officer of VII squad, Sergeant Yegar, have earned him the respect and friendship of VIII Squad.

Bike%20Squad%202%20Veteran%20Sergeant_zp

 

Weapon Specialist - Horatio Ghaer - Obscura

Specialist Ghaer is a vindictive astartes, who is known for swearing to kill specific enemy leaders or destroy specific enemy vehicles on his oaths of moment, often with elaborate descriptions of how and when he will perform those actions. As such, he has grown into an invaluable asset to Sergeant Langsdov - his determination easily converts into planning out the tactical issues of specific missions. 

Bike%20Squad%202%20Weapon%20Specialist%2


Weapon Specialist - Kato Ikaeinade - Kurama

The youngest member of VIII squad, it quickly became obvious that Specialist Ikaeinade would be at his best if given a destroyer function. He has quickly adopted to his role as a weapons specialist, and has proven himself an excellent shot, being laureled for crippling and immobilizing enemy vehicles on numerous occasions. 

Bike%20Squad%202%20Weapon%20Specialist%2

 

Comms Specialist - Sierad Gault Uveron

Where Brother Ghaer´s strengths are in tactical acumen, it is Comms Specialist Gault who is valued most in the squad for his Strategic insights. His calculating character aids him in analysing the enemy's movements. It is these perks that have earned him a reputation as a cunning strategist, not just in his own squad, but in the entire Assault division of 5th Company.

Bike%20Squad%202%20Comms%20Specialist_zp

 

Battle Brother - Estedan Slaega - SW1

Brother Sleaga is the righteous soul of VIII squad. Being the oldest member, Slaega was initially hesitant to accept a far younger commanding officer, and one from a different company to boot. He quickly warmed to Sergeant Langsdov, though, and has offered his experience to his Sergeant with grace. Sleaga often offers words of conservatism to balance Langsdov´s eagerness to meet the enemy, offering alternative tactics with graveful words of wisdom.  

Bike%20Squad%202%20Battle%20Brother_zpsp

 

That´s them! I hope you like ´m. smile.png

 

Feedback and comments most welcome! Thanks for looking. 

 

Replies!

 

@ kizzdougs: YES! Rainad Folker has reported for duty. Cool name, dude. Thanks. smile.png

 

@ Kalrath: Oh most definitely. 2nd Edition would be played with fun in mind at all times. It truly is a skirmish game - and is closer to Necromunda now than it is to 7th Ed. 40K.

 

@ KrautScientist: I know, buddy! I commented on that piece quickly after you published it, last year. smile.png

 

@ Kurama: Thanks buddy. When are you due to appear next summer?
 

@ Trysanna: Cheers! I do hope you like the finished miniatures!

 

@ sockwithaticket: Recent? Those devastator leg braces are actually a blast from 2nd edition, where they had the exact same design. Perhaps those 90's miniatures are the basis for my viewing devasatators as being more heavily armoured that assault units, who in my mind indeed need armour that allows more speed and agility. thumbsup.gif

Hi buddy, thanks!

 

The red is a base of 1±1 mix of GW Caliban Green and GW Khorne Red. I then Highlight it with a 1:1 mix of GW Wazdakke Red and GW Squig Orange, after which there's a final lighter Highlight of 1:1 GW Troll Slayer Orange and GW Wild Rider Red. 

 

Pretty involved, but I can't accept the dozens of other reds I've tried over the years. :)

Sorry to double post - I am on a roll again. 

 

Here's WiP pictures of the second half of XI Devastator Squad, led by Comms Specialist - Svadir Hark  (named by Rangaman). This guy is made from the weirdly sculpted limited edition Vexilla that was a Burning of Prospero exclusive miniature, I believe? I don't remember. All I know is, this guy's pelvis is in serious trouble - he's sculpted as if his whole upper body is shifted a couple centimeters to his rear from the abdomen  up. huh.png

Well, .... besides one thing. Sadly not even you can manage to make the "wannabe Ventanus" look *that great* - is the head already glued in place? Could you try out some helmets? I really think that could help him :/ (maybe MKIII or a variant of it? Or a MkII nuncio helmet?)

I think the main problem with that limited edition Vexillarius is that the proportions look really wonky -- like something you usually see on smaller manufacturers releasing models that are "totally not Space Marines" ;)

That said, I think you have done a pretty good job with the model so far, and I, for one, would like to see you paint it with the stock head in place, because I think we should really give you the benefit of the doubt here. I think grey or white hair would look great on a grizzled IF veteran like that, btw.

I wasn't very happy with the last pictures of the biker squad: for some reason, - probably the new light I bought for it is wrong - the yellow came off all wrong. So I took new pictures and now I am far more happy with it.

@ Atia: Yeah, I get what you're saying. I also looked for another head, but sadly nothing will fit, even if I dremmel the collars of his 'head hole' out to within micrometers. Not even the smaller Deathwatch heads will do, unfortunately...

 

@ Viarocanum: No can do, buddy...

 

@ KrautScientist: Aw, thanks for sticking up for me! I agree the proportions are super off, but I wanted to use it nonetheless. It's just a cool detailed model. Plus, he'll function as a 'lowly' comms specialist/sergeant in my army anyway. biggrin.pngmsn-wink.gif

Eh, there were like three 'special Prospero ultramarine' on the shelves when I went to my "local" GW to buy the Tau codex.

Second half of XI Devastator Squad finished. 

 

Now, I've obviously used the limited edition vexilarius for the comms officer. This model is, as many have said, grossly out of proportion. To make matters worse, the bare head is fugly as hell. I couldn't fit a helmet in there though, and by the time a fellow hobbyist from my local store showed me how with filing and a lot ofdremmeling he managed to fit a helmet in there, I had already started painting it. By a stroke of luck, I managed to misplace the head, and couldn't find it anymore. So I had to look for a different bare head - and found on in the oform of the Imperial Fists bare head from the FW Templar Brethren set. I'm very happy with it!

 

Take a look:

Comms Specialist - Svadir Hark Rangaman

A veteran of countless battles, Brother Hark was requested to lay down his honorary duties as Company Vexila to serve once more as a comms specialist in the experimental XI Devastator Squad. He advised Tech-Sergeant Hotar in the recruitment of battle brothers to serve in the squad, and has proved to be invaluable in devising, adapting, and perfecting tactics for the new graviton weaponry. Much to the squad's amusement, he recently silenced his combat squad's spotter for derelict of duty and failing to complete an oath of moment.

Vexillarius -Bransun Karlinus - lionofjudah

A Terran-born, Vexilarius Karlinus has carried his duties as since the Hanuoaman cleanising of Gu'illianuus IV. His fatalistic wit serves him well, bringing his brothers-in-arms a place of calm in the midst of the actions of the Heresy. Karlinus family is ancient, with records of Astartes induction going as far back as the Thunder Warriors. His lineage is a great source of pride to him, and he knows that as the Emperor's palace stands, his aim will be true and he shall smite the traitors from his home soil.

Heavy Weapon Specialist (Grav Cannon) - Harcon Cayil - Mactire

Harkon Cayhil is a Company Veteran who despite that, was never promoted above the rank of specialist. His bellicose and rancorous nature have earned him several tours of duty in VI Squad, known as ´The Bucket´, having clashed with superior officers on mutliple occasions. Combined with his deadly aim, he was suggested for the experimental tactics of XI Squad by his fellow veteran Hark.

Heavy Weapon Specialist (Grav Cannon) - Berneid Reis - Brother Androcles

Brother Reis has quickly gained a reputation of initiating good-natured rivalries with the other Heavy Weapon Specialists of XI squad, constantly attempting to initiate competition relating to marksmanship or kill counts. He has employed the wargear he is entrusted with to great effect, though, zealously eliminating enemies with extreme prejudice and deadly accuracy. While still a young Astartes, Brother Reis is as jovial as he is well-liked among his peers, and none can doubt his skills. His advancement to a higher position within the company may be closer at hand than would be normal for one of his age.

Spotter - ++Name Redacted Pending Completion of Duty++ (Player 404 has not provided a name yet)

XI Devastator Squad's spotter has recently been Silenced by Comms Specialist Hark, a punishment for derelict of duty and failing to fulfill an oath of moment. Silencing leaves an Astartes nameless until a certain requirement has been met. Sergeant Hakon had a harsher punishment in mind, such as a day in the pain glove, but Specialist Hark saw fit to provide a last chance. This battle brother swore to his brothers that he would not abandon them in the line of duty, but failed to show up for training duty. Should he fail to show up a second time, he faces severe penalties and possible excommunication from 5th company.

Hey Augustus, I don't know if you realise but the Unnamed Brother in the new squad has a gap in between where his right arm and torso should meet, I can see the pin holding it in place. :ermm:

I know I'm comitted elsewhere, but you keep making me want to return to the VII every time I visit.

Do flying babies poop? If so, who cleans it up? I nominate the Vexilariblahblah because ... Why not?

Regardless, they are creepy no matter how well painted!

The squad looks amazing as always. The comms specialist looks really good with the new head!

@ SanguiniusReborn: Yes! Thanks buddy. I noticed it before, and have since fixed it. Turns out, the pin was a bit too long. A simple clipping action and some more glue and hey presto: fixed :)

 

@ Atia: Thanks! And why do you keep referring to the generic Ultramarine Vexilla as Ventanus? ;)

 

@ Barrabas Sogalon: Cheers! Yeah, I love putting in the 5th company colours in here and there. :) Please come back to the VII

 

@ Race Bannon: Erm...., duh! Why do you think his entire base is brown? :P 

 

@ Viarocanum: Thanks! Yeah, that new head is definitely an improvement... although that was very easy considering how bad the original sculpt was! ;)
