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 more and more Forge World 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. Whilst 40k BA remain my primary focus, my group is moving more and more towards 30k so it's likely that I'll be adding more and more as time goes on. I also promise to keep all the 40k stuff out of the blog (especially the Mk VII stuff) where appropriate, but will likely be asking for help with conversions. I'll also be posting battle reports here too.
 
Anyway, without further ado, please enjoy the blog and I look forward to your comments smile.png

Sicaran Battle Tank

 

What follows is the paper trial for my Sicaran, which I (re)built for the Blood & Zeal event (Feb-March) and subsequently painted to "battle ready" standard for my group's Apocalypse:

She's not perfect but I enjoyed getting her to this stage. She just needs washing, tidying, highlighting, and details before she's complete.

Ohhhhh a Cerberus! Not very often you see one of those bad boys! How’d she go together? I’m considering getting one for my 1k sons!

Also. Welcome to the heresy brother!

She's a few years old now so her tracks have to added separately (no idea if FW "upgraded" the design on this like the did the Spartan), and this meant there was some hefty chucks of resin to remove, but other than that it went together fine and she's held by superglue. Of course, it's FW so anything you get is pot luck...

 

So far she's only been used once in 30k (trading shot with a Typhon of all things) and a few times in 40k 7th edition. Whilst I still think of her as the pride and joy of my army, she flatters to deceive these days as she gets focused early on (her debut saw her neuter a Reaver with two lasblasters and a dual turbo-laser, so folk don't let her do much now) :(

Damn that sucks! One of my favourite legion super heavies! Good to hear she performs well when she gets the chance though! Definitely going to be getting at least one now!

Minor update, but I've got a 2500 point game booked in for the weekend. I'm using my Armoured Breakthrough list against a Salamander force...

Put together the following for an event in the BA forum, but I feel he'd make a good Consul of sorts. What vibe do you get from him? the arms are magnetised so I can tweak as I see fit.

He's almost bordering on Iron Hands territory there Jolemai, i'm guessing he saw service on Signus Prime or Murder. msn-wink.gif

 

I can see him as a straight-up veteran Centurion or Praevian if you like running robots. With a different backpack, a Master of Signal.

Cheers. I normally don't care much for bionics (BA would do the aesthetics better imo) but in 30k I can see them being in use.

One thing I really want is Vorax (no idea why, just really like the classic feel of them) so a Praevian would be a good shout :tu:

Agreed on the Previan, mainly due to wargear.

 

If you added a staff to his back he could be a Mortifactor (new one, like a Previan for Dreads).

 

If not he could be a Warmonger quite easily.

To add another option, maybe a Siege breaker, pointing the next tank/building to be demolished by his heavy support squad?

Consul (Librarian) on Jetbike

 

Whilst not 100% complete (needs touch ups and highlights), here is my Librarian on Jetbike model. The pictures below are taken from the ETL and it displays the model in it's 40k loadout (I use it as a Librarian on bike) - the heavy bolter hasn't been finished yet.

Spoiler

 

I have the rider elsewhere and the other heavy weapons, so I can run this as a "normal" Jetbike once I acquire enough to run a squad. After that it's tactics and working out if it will mesh with my 30k plans (RoW: Armoured Breakthrough).
