Greetings all!
 
So I'm starting a new thread to track my expanded hobby progress since my last one was sorta here and there, and maybe a little unwieldy. I've had work in progress shots shared between so many threads that have either been lost in database resets or are quite depreciated from age. So the purpose of this thread, or at least the hope for it is that I keep it updated with all the projects in the pipeline.

While I would love to start off with a bunch of pictures, as of June 2017 a certain image hosting site has lost their fool minds, and now I've gotta move everything over... For now, I'll just leave the list of completed units up.

Currently this army consists of the November Warriors Space Marine chapter, the Knight House Garaipena, and recently a few sisters from the Order of the Frozen Flame. Eventually I'd like to add in the 156th Farbanti Lightning Riders (Elysium Droptroopers based/ODST inspired), A proper Titan cadre, and from there who knows (maybe Mechanicus?).

 

Ground Infantry
70 Tactical troops w/ sergeants
10 Sternguard Veterans
10 Legion of the Damned (Flamer, Heavy Flamer)

10 Devastators (Melta x5, Grav Cannon x 5)
5  Command Squad vets (w/ Apothecary, Standard Bearer, and Company Champion)
3  Chaplains (1 DV, 1 Metal BA)
3  Librarians (Same as above)
4  Captains (including AOBR based & kitbashed Malakim Phoros)

Jump Infantry
20 Jump Infantry w/ sergeants (4 with Flamers, 10 death company models)
10 Vanguards Vets (5 kitbashed, 5 death company)
5 Command Squad vets (also with Apoth, SB, and CC)
5 Gunslinger vets (counts as command squad)
1 Librarian and Chaplain (converted from Legion of the Damned)
1 Captain (Elam Courbray Counts as)

Terminators
10 SS&TH TDA
15 LC TDA
30 TDA (including DV TDA converted command squad)
10 Tartaros Terminators

5 Cataphractii Terminators
2 Chaplains (including conversion of Capt. Karlean)
2 Librarians (With minor conversion of Space Hulk Libby)
4 Captains (Tyberos, Lysander, SFU Captain, Cataphractii Cap)

Techmarines
4 Servitors (Macrotek Servitor Automata counts as)
2 Thunder Fire Cannons
1 Quad Mortar
2 Servo Harness Techmarines
3 Servo Arm Techmarines

Bikers
1 Biker
3 Legion Scimitar Jetbikes

Air Force
3 Land Speeder Tempests
3 Storm Ravens
2 Storm Talons
1 Xiphon interceptor

1 Nephilim Jet Fighter (counts as StormHawk/Xiphon)

1 Storm Hawk Interceptor

1 Storm Eagle (built by Honda!)
1 Fire Raptor
1 Relic Javelin Attack Speeder

 

Armour & Transport
7 Land Raiders (Ares, Achilles, Helios, Terminus Ultra, Crusader, Redeemer x2)
6 Predators (2 Annihilator, Destructor, Baal, Deimos Executioner, Deimos Infernus)
4 Whirlwinds (1 Hyperios)
3 Vindicators
3 Rhinos/Razorback

2 Fellblades (1 baneblade conversion)

1 Razorback Rikarius

1 Drop Pod

1 Stalker

1 Sicaran

 

Dreadnoughts

4 MkV Mortis (2 Autocannon, 1 LasCannon, 1 Missile Launcher)

2 MkV

2 Mortis Contemptor (Multia Melta, Kheres Assault cannon)

2 Leviathan (Siege Claw, Siege Drill, Melta Lance, Storm Cannon)

2 Ironclad

1 Siege Pattern

1 Contemptor (Claw, Power Fist)

1 Deredeo (Anvilus Autocannon Battery, Ailos Missile Launcher)

1 Librarian

1 Chaplain

1 Nemesis DreadKnight

 

Knights
2 Knight Crusader (Epochia Fadi, Ephochia Fellisa)
1 Knight Errant (Temporia Junah)
1 Knight Gallant (Tempris Seguna)

 

Currently In Construction:
10 Devastators
60 Tacticals
9  Bikes
4 Land Speeders
5 Cataphractii Terminators

5 Tartaros Terminators

3  Heavy Attack Bikes
1 Dreadnoughts

1 Storm Hawk Interceptor
1 Javelin Attack Speeder
1 Nemesis DreadKnight
1 set of Space Hulk Terminators

So I have a bunch of places I feel like I still need to fill in. My Biker force is rather weak and I'd like to get that at least up to Jump Infantry sized. Transport is sorta an issue with only two three Rhinos, and a drop pod that needs to be build. The Devastators are more or less ready to get going, but I've been so focused on clearing my resin backlog I'm not quite sure when I'll get to them, same with the 2 tactical squads I want to build to round out my tac company. The 2 mystery machines are tracked and that's all that will be said about that msn-wink.gif

That's not all this thread will have though, currently I'm slowly working on an Apoc sized 6x8 urban table nicknamed the Blade Runner's Table for it's rather wet look, I'll also soon be painting a 4x6 set of Forgotten City Secret Weapon Miniature tiles. Terrain and buildings are on the docket, as well as a rather important bridge that will play into one of our campaigns in the future.

I'll probably post some more pictures later once I do finally get the Squad Photo Station™ set up, but for now this is a good start. For more details of my DIY please check out my 2017 Entry into the Iron Gauntlet. Also within my banner are links to previous event threads and an apoc battle report between Honda and I!

@ Argent Aquila and Strongbow Thank y'all both much!

 

So here we are, ETL Season, and the ole Warriors of November have decided to throw their hat in the ring. this first vow is 3000 points, go big or go home right? I doubt my second vow will be able to be hit the same number, but bringing honor and glory to the Liber and Index is what this is all about!

 

So let's break it down:

 

HQ:          270

                115 Captain

                       Combi Grav, Power Sword, Iron Halo

                  90 Chaplain

                  65 Librarian

                       Force Staff

I like having more options for my Libbies and Chaplains, especially in plastic, the Space Marine Heroes set is a nice little box, though I'm fairly sure I'm gonna have to head swap the libby.

 

Elites:      360

                210 Contemptor Dreadnought

                       DCCW, Multi-Melta, Cyclone Missile Launcher

                150 Venerable Dreadnought

                       Power Fist w/Heavy Flamer, TLLC

This BaC Dreadnought will sorta give me a talon, but only after I convert the PF into a Multi-melta, I'm gonna see if I have another metal termi CML, but I'm sure I'll just have to use a plastic one. The Venerable has been sitting on the project bench for a while, he'll be carrying a banner that I found in another kit that I've been wanting to play around with. Getting away from my usual mortis loadouts, this guy will be able to carry a TLLC, AC, or Plasma cannon as the list could need.

 

Heavy:   1540

                340 Relic Leviathan Dreadnought

                       Heavy Flamer, Cyclonic Melta Lance, Leviathan Storm Cannon, Hunter Killer Missiles

                305 Relic Leviathan Dreadnought

                       Heavy Flamer, Leviathan Siege Claw, Leviathan Siege Drill, Hunter Killer Missiles

                280 Centurion Devastator Squad

                       Omni-Scope, 3x Missile Launcher, 3x Grav Cannon/Grav Amp

                225 Devastator Squad

                       4x Grav Cannon/Grav Amp, Combi-Grav, Melta Bomb

                130 Devastator Squad

                       4x Multi-Melta, Combi-Melta, Melta Bomb

                260 Land Raider Crusader

                        Multi-melta

 

The Leviathans are absolutely the bee's knee's, they're gonna be built to be somewhat weapon swappable, but more than likely, I'm running them as priced because I like the idea of one of them being so brutal in CC that nobody wants to let it near, and the other throwing out so many shots that nothing can stand. I'm not looking as forward to the Devs of both kinds. My troop scale skills are rusty, and I've never built a Centurion before, but I am excited to add these units to the forces of the November Warriors. It's also been a while since I built a Land Raider, but they go together so easy that I'll be more excited to see how easy it is to knock stuff out with an airbrush than anything.

 

LOW:       830

                470 Knight Crusader

                       Storm Spear Rocket Pod

                360 Knight Gallant

                       Twin Icarus Autocannon

 

With this ETL the house Garaipena becomes a little fuller. I hadn't actually intended to get more knights for a while, but the combination of Renegade's price point and a supportive better half is letting my expand on the Knight house. I guess it's time to start looking for a pair of new names.

 

 

Note: There should be an image here of everything prebuilt and freshly primed, but a certain image hosting site (and you're gonna see this a lot) lost their fools minds.

I'm generally pretty bad at keeping a photographic record of the different stages of painting, but I am making attempts, even if there probably should be a shot or two more smile.png

 

Note: There was once an image here, it is no more, thank a certain image hosting service.

 

This is stage two of doing block colors for the walkers, what's supposed to be yellow is yellow, the metallic bits are silver for now. I'm testing out a new yellow mixture out the airbrush, it took a few more coats to get the right depth. One of the side effects of this new mix is a very fine grain orange peel texture. I personally really like it in a "repair, repaint, rearm" sort way. I was able to get this effect on the metal as well, and I'm enthusiastic to see how it takes the next couple of layers.

 

Next up are blue block painting and some washes. Once all that's done the build actually happens, and then I can start doing detail pieces like helmets, knee, shoulder and elbow armor which is where most of the heraldry should be ending up. That's generally my favorite part of the process, but as a dessert atmosphere named movie once said, sweet and sour and something something msn-wink.gif

Note: Once, not so long ago, there were images here, but a certain image hosting website decided that their form of monetization wasn't working and changed their business plan. As such, here's me sounding like an utter ego maniac and making no sense whatsoever!

 

Thanks Ace! I'm afraid to say, I think yellow is the only color I know how to paint msn-wink.gif

 

So this is an update of what I've been cranking out for ETL!

 

First up are my two new favorites, "the twins" Scinfaxi and Hrimfaxi.

 

 

 

 

 

Nice thing with this picture is that you can finally see the tri-star emblem on his knee without all the glare

 

 

 

 

 

They are able to switch weapon load outs to be anti-armor or anti-infantry specific, or long and short range specific. I do wish that heavy bolters had been a chest option though.

 

 

 

So this guy is my new favorite MK.V dreadnought. For his missile launcher, I cut up an insert piece meant for the venerable dreadnoughts ranged weapon shoulder piece and glued it where FW had molded a skull. The banner if from an old Ogres kit, I liked the rough look of it.

 

 

The contemptor, I really hope GW does release a multi-part plastic kit to rival what FW has released, I never thought I would build and paint a contemptor and think, "man, I guess I won't be buy anymore of those" though I'm sure reposing it wouldn't be too hard I suppose.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For my knights, I kinda wanted all their weapons to have some sort of charms or chains on them, joining Temporiah Junah and Epochia Fadi are two new Knights, a gallant and crusader that still need to earn their names.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The newest Land Raider to join the motor pool.

 

Now for some fun group shots!

 

 

I really like the Forgeworld designs msn-wink.gif

 

 

You know it's gonna be a bad day for whoever these four knights are looking at.

 

 

I call it, ETL V, the walkers club class photo biggrin.png

 

 

I'd say I'm a dreadhead!

 

I'm still working on the IA for the November Warriors, and I hope to rise and meet the challenge of Brotherhood of Angels to really get me going there. Up next this ETL are Devs, and tri-pack of HQs and some centurions!

I should be working on my IFE vow, or at least maybe working on a list for my next game. Instead I was struck by an idea, I wanted to experiment with decals. Looking at the army it should be pretty obvious I haven't been comfortable using them, it could come down to experiences as a kid trying to build VF-1 Valkyries and F-15's and never getting the decals to do anything I wanted them to. So I figured, I'm not gonna use most of the current ones I have for one reason or another, and it got me thinking, what can I put these decals on? Well I had a spare Raspberry Pi laying about...
 

Textured top face

A Raspberry Pi is a micro computing device powered by a Broadcom 900Mhz Quadcore processor and 1GB of ram (on the 2B models), endlessly modifiable they can be used to create networked smart systems, gaming consoles, or as in this case, a Linux based PC I can carry in my pocket. I had the thought in my head, what would a "pocket cogitator" look like if used by an Ordo Chronos wonk. It'd have to be covered in Aquilas and Cogs, but what sort of ideograms would represent what.

 

Power and display ports
The Micro-USB power port I hope is clearly marked, the HDMI port got some elite honors and a skulls, because it's not Warhammer without a skill somewhere (besides you use your skull to see and hear with, so it fits, right?)
 
Network and IO device ports

I'll admit, I get a slight kick at the Mars M.40 script placed over the E-net port which is marked off by an Assault squad symbol because if there's a place of fast assaults, it's the internet. The USB ports got a cog because unless I'm wiring through a GPIO connector, all the accessories get connected via USB.

 
Bottom face
So what piece of technology would be complete without a Cog Mechanicum, slightly modified with an Aquila for an extra Omnissiah-ish flavor. The Small roundel up top marks off the SD card slot.
 
Imperial seal of approval
This side of the device doesn't have any ports so to busy it up I wanted it to have some sort of call number to go along with all the Aquila emblems.
 
image

Here's a Space Marine to give a sense of scale. You can also see the SD card slot almost hidden away at the bottom.

 

The operational device!
So here it is plugged in and working, with all the wires coming out I'd like to think it looks the part.
 
So what have I learned from all this? First off, decals aren't as hard as I thought so I should probably give them a shot. Triple Thick glaze causes some paint crazing on the surfaces, but it worked out because I wanted this thing to look like an old, well maintained piece of equipment. But the decals didn't get the same texturing. Laying on clear made me worried it was gonna frost immediately, but it didn't. The last thing I learned. I want to make another one, really get into the theme and maybe use some custom made decals and paint effects. Well I guess I should quit playing around and actually go work on the +[Redacted]+ and a few other models, otherwise they're never gonna get done!

Note: Oh look, another note, it's probably just about the lack of images in this post, if only there was a certain image hosting site that we could blame...

 

Once in a while I get an idea, like "I'm gonna build some dreads" or "Ya know, Knights are kinda cool". Last year (the end of the year before really) I had a grand idea. I need some Super Heavy Tanks. So with much hemming and hawing a Fellblade was ordered. Then it sat. And I had a second idea, " ya know, a baneblade could be useful too". Once again there were hems and haws and this time justifications made to my sweet caring, understanding beautiful girlfriend. So a second super heavy came in. And Sat. Piles of resin and plastic were reduced to completed projects, ETL came and made a big dent in the backlog and soon I was staring at two hulls that needed completion. IFE was just starting when I made a small vow. Now to this point these were secret projects, I often play with Honda, and while he's known around these parts for his awesome Templars, for our campaigns he'd elected to act as the OpFor and played knife-ears or Cultists with a buggy Necron bent. So came the birth of the +[Redacted]+ tanks.

 

Now I can't say that they are "done" because honor marks and vexilla still need to be applied, but these were at least ready to come out of the black bag they've been hidden in. While I love the Fellblade because it's the FW fellblade, I have a special place in my heart for the work that went into the Baneblade chassis Fellblade. A more indepth breakdown will be coming later, but the Turret, Cannons and fuel tanks came from Blood and Skulls Industry.

 

But that's not all I've been up to.

 

I like dreadnoughts, and during ETL I built one that I had really liked. A Venerable with Missiles and Lascannons, but it also had a power fist holding a banner. Given how I liked how both loadouts looked I had a bit of an idea, why not move the arm to another dreadnought and give it a multi-melta. At the same time, I had started thinking about Siege Dreadnoughts and the lack of one in the stores of the NIX.

 

 

 

A quick weapon swap on some already painted chassis ended up being the simplest solution. Speaking of simple solutions, next time I'll be posting up my take on a Razorback Rikarius using parts from Kromlech and Blood and Skulls Industry, a Nephilim converted into a Xiphon and maybe even some fluff!

I've been feeling like I need to start fleshing out the November Warriors, and like painting, writing is a skill that grows with practice. So without further ado:

 

+The Pari Ridge Action+

 

He realized he was dreaming as soon as he felt the familiar weight of Sol-pattern Multi-Melta on his shoulder. They were assaulting the flank of the Xenos force, Veteran-Brother Qualadis had just gone down, a gaping hole in his chest caused by a xenos weapon on the oncoming knife-ear grav tank. Captain of the Devastator School of Advanced Warfare was more than just a title, it meant that he knew and understood all there was to know about the weapon now on his shoulder, and how best to use it on the foul alien construct. Taking aim, he depressed the firing trigger and where once was a grav-tank of the knife ears now was a crater.

The Foul Xenos had only made planet fall 6 hours prior but had quickly set up their damned gateways inside the Pari Ridge Mining Complex allowing their force to grow larger every moment. The flank action was heavier than expected with the Eldar force was taking only light casualties, while his teams were taking regular losses. One of the Xenos Heavy Walkers was responsible for the majority of the damage, and it was at the top of the destruction priority list.

He had signaled to the rest of the D-SAW group over comms, he would crack the shield, it was up to them to pour in the fire. On the third click of his comms, he launched forward. Underneath and through the spindled legs of the walker where he fired into the weakest part of it's shields and armour. The foul construct made the fatal mistake of turning to engage him, leaving it's back open for massed fire. The combination of melta blasts and lascannon beams tore into the walker, quickly taking it down, but it wasn't fast enough to prevent the shot that tore through him.

Flying through the air Alvinus Daevenport saw the Eldar walker lurch then explode, and darkness overtook him finally. The dream faded and The Reverie of Akerson Hill awoke slowly. The Automantic reactor slowly pulsing to full power, servos and motors humming in self testing cycles.

As he stirred in his metal body of contempt, he remembered trying to hold onto consciousness, when had he next awoke, he was on a chiurgicary table, surrounded by a council of the Chapter Commander, the Chief Apothecary, the Forgemaster and Chaplain Dulles. He was informed of the major damage his body had taken, the direct shot had destroyed everything from the hip down, from the explosion, he'd lost an eye and the use of his right arm when the multi-melta overloaded from damage. He could have been fitted with bionics, but his days of serving in battle would have been over. The Emperors peace was his to request, except a dreadnought had just become ready for consecration, and he could be wrath and vengeance. He made only one request, a pair of multi-meltas, a drop-pod, and to lead the Pari Ridge Assault.

The Consecration of the Reverie of Akerson Hill was necessarily brief, when his senses came to him, the world was changed, he could feel and see beyond the spectrum he knew before, his body was plasteel and fury. He was patient Death, the world trembling at his step. Falling through the atmosphere had brought no fear even as the metal of his drop pod screamed in protest, he was beyond fear, only righteous duty remained.

The Assault was a daring plan, overhead the Battle Barge Sword of Bana was loosing waves of Deathstorm and Dreadnought Drop pods into the heart of the enemy stronghold. A pair of ground force battle groups were assaulting the flanks while a full aerial wing was going low and fast through the front. They were the axe, now he was going to be the hammer.

His HUD was connected to the navigation system of the pod, watching as the altimeter wound down he recited the Litanie of Applied Hate. "Hate stokes the Fires of Glory, The Fire that sears the wicked and sublimates the enemy". On approach, the xenos let loose a wall of anti-air fire, snuffing out status lights of surrounding drop pods, debris rained down upon his own transport, and knocked him off course. The pod slammed into the shadow of the ridge, the former captain exploding forth. Deathstorm pods lay scattered around empty of munitions having spent their fury to litter the surrounding with fallen enemy bodies.

For the first 3 hours the Reverie fought alone through logistical support structures. His steps thundered with destruction as munition, xenos, and machine were no match for the Emperor blessed graceful violence the Reverie put forth. Upon entering the buried stronghold the next 6 hours were spent in methodical advancement. Blockades were reduced to vapor, and patrols easily dispatched. Pushing inward he made his way into the main command hub.

16 Hours the battle raged. The warren like passage ways that ran in the ridge only served to funnel the xenos to slaughter. The once brightly polished barrels of the multi-meltas were heat-stained from the unyielding fire. The hull of The Reverie of Akerson Hill had been cratered from xenos weapons when the Automantic field projector had been overtaxed, only 10% fuel remained for the Arc-reactor, smoke launchers empty, and searchlight shot out. But the remaining Eldar were fleeing in retreat, and the main force of the November Warriors was sweeping in.

The AAR revealed that the Reverie landing deviated far ahead of any other force. Where the Deathstorm drop was supposed to be a short distraction before a massed dreadnought force assaulted the Eldar held fuel depot, the Reverie's forward landing had pulled the attention of the xenos defenders . The much reduced resistance at the fuel depot allowed the November Ancients to succeed in their mission quickly, allowing them to support the incoming Forward Assault squads, reducing overall casualties. The Reverie's 16 hour solo assault on the stronghold earned it the first of it's many honors. With their foothold removed, the Eldar retreated en masse leaving the planet before their overall goals could be ascertained.

With apologies to the Templars of the Albigensian Crusade and the Ordo Malleus' Jane Goodall Foundation.

The wind swept along the tarmac of Murska Airbase, everywhere figures in yellow and blue moved and shifted, some clad in ceramite, towering above the mere humans, a few in dark blue combat fatigues, and yet others in pale blue and gray power armor. Near the main control tower an ancient war machine sat with panels removed. Tech-marines frenetically preparing the large yellow machine to fight once again. Upon the engine block a Forge-Master was deep in work, his servo arms twitching back and forth, a flash of spark every so often. It is here that a Librarian in Terminator armour made his way to.

"Abielle, we've received a message from the Oured, "they" are on the way"

The Forge-Lord turned away from the open engine panel to face the figure of Chief Librarian Alastor. He quickly pulled project status reports from his staff to his HUD. As numbers and status reports flashed by he emitted a harsh bark of a chuckle and replied in a synthetic distored voice, "they could not resist, could they?"

The Librarian showed a grim smile "The Titanbourn and the Templars share only one commonality, we prevented them from aquiring an artifact" his smile widened a bit more "and we gave them a hell of a bloody nose for trying".

Abielle emitted a sound that sounded like a mix between a chortle and a data connection. The Ordo Malleus had tussled with the IX many times before during missions to secure OOPArts. The last time the main chamber militant force was repulsed was thanks to the efforts of the Fellblade Chassis #X41.0119.71, a recovered Mars Pattern that once belonged to 118th company of the Imperial Fists, but had since been reconsecrated as the Unsung War. The Forge-Lord could only assume it was this that the Silver'd ones used to tempt the Templars.

Turning back to the engine panel the Master of the Forge spoke "let them try, broadcast a message, Come and Take it!"

For the other half of whats going on go check out Honda's Thread in the BT subforum, it seems the guys in aprons don't really get along with the silverspoon sons of Titan ;)

Once upon a time this thread was full of pictures, there was a big shot of an army, there were group shots of differing units, there was even a visual roster, but at some point a certain image hosting company who's name rhymes with what I said to myself decided it was gonna change their TOS, it killed a bunch of links. Having gotten involved with the Liberalia Martial Iron Gauntlet Challenges has more or less put fixing that on the back burner. Also, since the last full army shot I had added a ton of new units. So I figured the next time that I'd be able to take an army shot is the next time I'd post in this thread and start trying to bring back some of the images.

 

Starting it off are some of my favorite units, Dreadnoughts, and in specific on the right hand side of the first image is the November take on an MK.V Siege Dreadnought.

Here are some of the PA HQ's, on the far front right is Lt. Farsa Kas, coincidentally the Sgt. with the "chequed banner" was the old Sgt. Farsa Kas.

The two big additions to this army this year were a pair of Fellblades. During the build of the FW unit, I was encouraged to try doing my own kitbash take using parts from Blood and Skulls Industry and a baneblade kit. Don't tell anyone, but I think I got the superheavy bug now.

These guys never really had many photos of them, and I've never played them, but they are some of my favorite models, the shields were by BnC member Oper8or.

Sometimes I feel a bit sharky...

One day I'm gonna go to my local GW's Tanksgiving game and try my hand at survival.

I know this is dorky, but in my IA, these guys are the Aerial Combat Engagement School, aka ACES.

vOgODrw.jpg

 

Also the most recent flyer completed, I really had to stop myself from kitbashing it into another Xiphon msn-wink.gif

I'll note that in this army shot there are no Tactical Squads. That's because as a whole the first squads I did are in bad need of repainting, except I used Krylon to paint them... So, they've been retired. Or at least most of them, for now until I get around to doing some of these BaC and BoP kits I'm running fairly elite or heavy armies.

I suppose I should probably get back to writing for the Final Iron Gauntlet Challenge. 3K+ words ain't gonna write themselves...

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.

Earlier this year the esteemed Brother Tyler had put up a challenge, the Chronicles of the Legio Bolter and Chainsword. I was already involved with another creativity stretching challenge put up by Olis, the Iron Gauntlet 2017, but it sorta fit right into what I was already working on.

 

aZF6UDs.jpg

 

I wish I had some actual WIP pics of my entrant, Brother Adlai, but as a model, it went together and got painted almost within days of the Chronicles challenge going live. The base of the model is actually an AOBR sgt, and one of the first terminators I had ever bought and the chest piece is the one used with a CML, and the Helmet is a plastic Mk.III from BoP.

The power fist was cut off from one of the DV terminators. Originally when it got it's first coat of pain, it was all fairly uniform, but I had kinda had a nutty idea, what about painting the finger tips a different color, and then trying to put some script on them. In the entry photos it didn't show through too well, but here i can put up a much larger image. Since then I've added this visual cue to a few other Terminators for the November Warriors.

 The rimmed shoulder pad is just one of the extra inquisition pads that's been shaved down. I honestly had a massive amount of fun kit bashing everything together, and getting it painted up. 

 

BQfIjdj.jpg

 

 

The shield design is actually one that I had came up with over 10 years ago, I had modified for use in my army and called it the the Southern Cross, for Adlai, I went back to the original scheme since it already matched the B&C colors perfectly.

 

Of4lWfz.jpg

The idea was that besides the Aquilas, Adlai had been awarded honors for "sinking" numerous enemy capital ships. I knew I didn't want to use one of my regular storm shields, or one of the plastic GW designed shields, so I raided the bits box again, this time coming up with the shoulder shield from a Knight Titan. That sprue also give parts to Adlai's Thunder hammer "Void Breaker", the wings themselves had, if fact, come from the DV HQ's helmet.

 

Lastly, I figured if ole' Adlai was gonna be throwing his shield around, he'd probably need some help getting it reattached, and from that came Yorrick the Servo Skull.

 

q3YI0cl.jpg

 

When all was said and done, I was deeply impressed by the other entrants and give major kudos to everyone who participated, the most going to Kizzdougs for his winning model Brother "Achilles" Kaizer. I'll be posting how Adlai fit's into the Legio and the IX at a later date, for now I look forward to seeing what inspired the rest of the challengers, and the parts of their models we didn't get to see.

I'd had a dreadknight kit laying about for a few years, one of those back burner project things that never quite started. That is until earlier this year, flush with bitz from knight titans and dreadnoughts I'd had this idea for a somehow minor conversion, what about making something that tied together elements of Knight Titans and MK.V Dreadnoughts.This is the product of hours of faffing about and ignoring more pressing matters.

There still a ton that needs to be done from shading and adding random bits of script and embellishments. The big questions is whether or not to keep the banner (I feel it's waaaay to big, and in addition to looking tacked on, is quite literally blue tacked in place) and if not, what to replace it with.

 

Just to finish it out, a picture of the Dreadknight with it's larger sibling the Knight Titan msn-wink.gif

Interesting work. I'm now contemplating how a Mechanicus force, or Freeblade force, would look with some converted Dreadknights accompanying a Knight into battle. Maybe call them Squire Battlesuits?

One of the cooler things I can now talk about is my new profession. I cut vinyl graphics. I mostly do automotive stuff, but if I'm gonna be honest, when I'm not doing that, I'm cutting out 40K related stuff. I've already started making a few graphics for friends.

 

RaD9NWf.jpg

Honda, is of course looking forward to getting some Maltese crosses. Grand Master Iapetus is getting some pretty nice large Inquisitorial I's, and GAR, that poor lost soul, well I've cut some xenos emblems for him.

 

IXRjTQb.jpg

Today I started to play around with some of the different materials I have available. On a side note, the Imperial Fist Logo is super easy to do, I almost wish I had a fist's army msn-wink.gif You may also notice another vinyl for the Hostile Cart, it seems the Angry Lost Bakers are getting some sort of shiny support in the near future!

Speaking of the Hostile Cart, I knew he had one other army that needed some love.

Now of course, I couldn't pass up the chance to make some stuff for myself. My Fridge and RTIC mug needed some Imperial Might, and my dice box needed some scripting, though admittedly, I'm not sure about my design choice to take out the interior of the letters, also in my rush to cut, I realized the scripting makes it sound like I'm calling myself a heretic... I'm gonna have to fix that at some point :P

 

I'm sure soon enough I'll have some new and interesting uses of vinyl to show off!
