I shall buy you gold-caged birds.

 

And if those birds ne’er sings,

 

I will buy you golden rings.

 

And if those rings can't shine bright,

It is a lullaby, a child’s song that originates back to our species earliest days. I find it entertaining that most view it as a song of a parent doing their utmost to please their child. What I picture when I hear this song is a spoilt child that can never be pleased.

That Sorcerer exudes menace without using hardly any Chaos parts at all, and that's awesome! Looking forward to more.

Thank you everyone for the positive replies!

Definitely glad that the sorcerer comes off a bit sinister without having to write a description! smile.png

I am pleased with the pose myself, I originally intended his right hand to be reaching outwards BUT it looked like he was doing the Heisman.

 

Is the orb for scrying or hurling?

 

I want to say both really. In my mind I imagine it as the essence of the Aether harnessed. He can draw upon its power to aid in the summoning of daemons, in the casting of witchfire or placing curses upon his foes. The orb itself is not its true form but how his mind maintains it. Its substance is like liquid mercury which the sorcerer, upon many occasions, dips his hand into and pulls from the depth of the aetheric substance the hilt of the sword, followed but its guard, and its blade until the razor tip is pulled free and the orb has changed its shape and purpose by alchemical means.

 

This all of course was the afterthought to my original idea of having him hold nothing at all. After reading about Diaboloist just harnessing the aether and watching the Scarlet Witch in the recent Avengers movie I thought it was a cool idea to have a sorcerer walking about and wreaking having with every wave of his hand. However, it just didn't look right.

 

And this "Blessed Bowling Ball of Smiting", is that equipment in the obscure specialist game Blood Bowling? (*I should copyright that name...)

Instead of working on something logical I have been at work on a Blastmaster. So far I have only produce this:

*further down you will see its business end thus far. Right now it looks like something a Tau would be proud of.

 

As you can see I have it pictured with the Kakophoni’s main weapon…the…Cacophony. When FW first teased this unit I was in love and beyond ecstatic when I saw their weapons. I pre-ordered a unit and waited forever for it to get across the pond to me here in Jolly Ol’ Austin. I’ve mainly used these guys as my blastmasters in my NM squads and will one day have them used for their true Horus Heresy purpose.

 

Why I am building my own blastmaster is a mix of inspiration namely from another user know as Zsoulless who was working on some fantastic stuff. Scroll through that thread of his and you will see what has my heart jumping. Below, you will even see something I tried copying from him.

B8CDDD6F-1713-4E9A-9C2E-EBD99A168BDF_zps

 

I am hoping to add a few finishing touches here and there to the BM and create another similar back pack to act as an amplifier for kicks and giggles.

I love the Chaos Space Marine on the right, especially the bolt pistol that looks like it's made of metal vertebrae. Did you modify the weapon with green stuff, or does the model come with that?

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

 

Reasons to use the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think the Librarian Dreadnought needs Furious Charge AND It Will Not Die to beat down a Chaos-worshiping punk and his Defiler, while a Stormraven needs a Vanquisher cannon to beat down this punk's Heldrake.

That Blastmaster looks great! I wouldn't have said it looks Tauesque at all. Once you get some more cabling on there it'll look the part :)

Look to the Heavens and count the stars. Only then can you begin to comprehend the quantity of my sins.

-Brother Sergeant Xerxes Radic.

III Legion. Traitor. Cult of Golden Tears.

 

Howdy folks! After getting some gaming in and rocking back and forth waiting for F1 to start I got some work done.

 

Thank you Noctus and kobrakei!

 

To start may I serve up some background fluff:

 

Spoiler

 

It's quite a bit so hence the spoiler tag. I am happy to finally share some fluff I had built up for this force years ago but never put down in words.

 

Other than that I got some work on my physical army done.

 

To start is a biker. My HQ is running on a bike and has a few riders with him. This fella is one of them. Nothing to fancy but I wanted to show a biker on an oval base. I was debating on whether I should or should not but then I saw the new White Scar Deathwatch rider. I was sold.

gallery_55057_11760_1319925.jpg

 

Next up is something I am very excited about even though it is not in my initial 40k Army. It is a techmarine who will hopefully be receiving a wicked weapon and big, fancy backpack. In 40k I would like to run him as an Obliterator. The fluff idea being he and any like him are techmarines wanting to test out the potency of home made conversion beamers. I am only concerned if him being on a smaller base would be an issue. When I play HH he will be either backing up some armor or riding along in a storm eagle.

 

gallery_55057_11760_212520.jpg

 

gallery_55057_11760_457164.jpg

 

Lastly, some more work on my Blastmaster/Cacophony.

gallery_55057_11760_1326256.jpg

 

It's pretty much done but I would like to shop for some guitar wire. I always see it being used and I need to get some. As for that thing on the top handle I was happy to fit that in despite how bulky it is. In another bit of fluff I had a dial my noise marine used to change the frequency and power setting. That round deal on the top is how he does it.

 

Anyways, off to do some stuff with the rest of my Sunday. Thanks for taking a look.

The only setting you need on the Cacophony is 11.

Thank you sir! That is high praise from someone who I have seen kitbash and convert the heck out of marines!

 

The Mk III head looks fits well with the biker. The techmarine looks great, where are the torso and legs from?

The body of the techmarine is from the Chaos Warpsmith from GW sans his mechantendril cloak and smoke stacks. I bought him when those first came out and I have scavenged him for bits. Soon he will come into his own I am happy to say.

 

Dat techmarine!! ohmy.png

I'm hoping he can keep that effect going with this T-rex arms coming out of his torso.

 

 

Oh man...just had a flash back of Quatto and his little torso arms. unsure.png

 

The only setting you need on the Cacophony is 11.

Haha, thank you! Actually, since you had let me name one of you Legionaires would you mind naming the Legion-Brother who will wield that cacophony in glorious battle?
