For those who aren't aware, my main army is Blood Angels in 40k and I have a blog located over in the BA sub-forum.
 
As my collection has grown over the years, I've started to incorporate some of the minor Imperial forces into my collection and rather than clutter up my main blog, I've decided to move some of them out to here.
 
I should point out that this blog will be on a slow burn: I'm not the fastest painter at the best of times and the stuff to be added here is done on an as-and-when basis. In fact, updates post-Inquisitor (which I need complete before April 28th) will be jostling for attention with my terrain blog and as you can see, that needs some attention...
 
Anyway, without further ado, please enjoy the blog and I look forward to your comments smile.png

Assassins

 

My last Apocalypse game was in February 2016 and I needed to round off my Assassin collection to field the Formation (the one in the Codex, not the Apoc one as that's borked following the latest Codex release).

 

Early WIP

Here's how they have been since then (for our Apoc games, our group requires stuff to be battle ready. So three base colours on a model and to be based)

My other Assassins haven't been touched for a good while, but I thought I'd show off their current state:

You can't go wrong with some assassins, they're cool models and a great way to flesh out an army smile.png I think that matching the basing scheme is a good idea - I've done it for each of my associated armies (all Imperial armies have one basing scheme, all Chaos have another etc) as it helps unify them on the table top thumbsup.gif

 

Inquisitors are another good way to flex your hobby muscles and add single models to a force, they can be pretty cheap too msn-wink.gif

Every so often, the Officio Assassnorum dispatches Assassins to warzones that my Blood Angels are fighting in and their exploits can be be found here. The reports you are interested in is:

 

BA vs Eldar - 1500 points - Vindicare

BA Death Company vs Eldar - 1250 points - Calidus

BA Death Company vs Eldar - 1250 points - Calidus

BA Death Company Vs Eldar - 1250 points - Eversor

 

There's also a 21.5k per side Apocalypse game from a few years ago which saw a Calidus and Vindicare take to the field, one of whom had a great impact on the game...

Probably not a bad idea. The digital codex still has bargain basement pricing on some of the pistol options, like the 2 meltabomb inferno pistol. You may find a use for them once in a while.

Looks like Ordo Hereticus has the inferno pistol for the same price, fwiw.

Only got Battlescribe to hand right now so take with salt, but it lists the inferno pistol as two melta bombs regardless of sourcebook for the Inquisitor.

I haven't invested in the new Agents codex since my hobby money has been going to getting my BA tournament worthy. BattleScribe may not be wrong but I thought I had read they "updated" the weapon prices in the new one (while also making armour upgrades for the acolytes more reasonable).

They have updated a lot of things, but there's still the occasional thing like this.

Not sure what to suggest for the pistol hand, I've never done magnetization but he looks good Jolemai!

A bit of GS could be ok, but generally it's better to try and get a cleaner fit - easier said than done though. I'd wait until you've assembled and magnetised the other options first, as they might change what you do.

Never again! It's been inspired by the new Cypher model and the blurb that goes with it. I had a go at this tutorial for the ridges, then moved the exhaust ports around before making the sword rest which is green stuff wrapped around a paper clip and then I've tried to model a cushion for the sword to rest on.
