Hello Everyone, and Welcome to 2017's Tale of Hobbyists!
 
This is the 2017, Tale of Hobbyists Project thread. Here participants will post vows, WIP Pictures and completions. Please check out the Original Sign-up thread here.
 
If you wish to join you have until June 30th 2017 to do so, please do so on the Sign-up thread. Everyone is welcome to pop in and encourage the participants/comment on the various things that will follow/submit ideas or pictures for inspiration (as long as it is kept polite and mainly constructive, as per forum rules)
 
This Event will official start on the 17th of June, but any posts and work done from June 1st will count towards the first month’s requirements.  The Event will run until Jan 15th 2018. Additionally an Event month is from the 16th-15th.
 


++ EVENT RULES AND REQUIREMENTS ++

 
The following rules are outline of the requirements of participation

  • Everyone Participant will name a single project to be the focus of their vows.
    • This Project can be changed until the 30th of June 2017
    • A Project should be a focused collection of models that can be summarized in a single group, for example “Ultramarines 3rd company fighting forces of chaos on the red moon of gralth” This project would focuses on painting models of the Ultramarines 3rd company, but may also include some scenery from the red moon, and maybe even on or two units from the forces of chaos. In this example the forces of chaos would need to be on the same basing scheme to tie the collection together.
  • Every Month the following if REQUIRED from participants at a minimum.
    • An Update post detailing what work has been done, and what work is planned for the rest of the month.  
    • A Post Showing a model(s) at the start of the month.
    • Model(s) should be unpainted or primed or in very early stages of painting at the point.
    • A Post Showing Models(s) competed at the end of the month.
    • If a participant does not finish a model(s) at the end of the month an update of its current state will fulfill this requirement, This can be only done once within the event, a special dispensation may be made for complex Model(s).
    • Should these Requirements not be fulfilled then the Participant will be considered out of the event.
  • Each month a SPECIAL EVENT will be announced that may temporarily change the requirements for these events. These will appear in announcement posts and will be listed in the SPECIAL Event section of this post.

 

++ The Spirit of The Event ++

 
Much like the ETL and other events on this forum there are some high-level principles, which cannot directly translate to rules, that cannot be policed but I would like all participants to try and abide by these ideas.
 
The aim of events like this is to develop and improve skills, the aim isn’t to win awards this isn’t a completion to see who can paint the most as DO NOT COMPROMISE your skill to be the person who paints the most. Another item of note linked to this is basing. Basing isn’t compulsory, this is for a whole number of reasons but if you have been basing some models in the project and then stop expect some questions.
 
Most importantly this event is an opportunity to paint your army while having fun interacting with other frater within our community.. Please keep that in mind in your exchanges and also that there may be a language barrier let alone the fact text doesn’t convey tone well.  
I hope that all makes sense.

 

++ Special Events & Achievements ++

 

Every Event Month I will focus on a theme, during that event month it will be possible to achieve a special achievement, more outlined below. I will list all the special events here outlining the dates of eligibility

  • June – 1/6/17-14/7/17:-Get It DONE!  It’s the start of the event, and all probably have models that we have been working that just need that little bit more time to complete. So this month let’s get these guys done. As such the following *RULES CHANGE* is in effect for weeks of 1/6/17-14/7/17. It doesn’t matter what stage the model is in at the start of the month, the aim is to get things completed.  Due to the extended time of this ‘month’ to achieve the Achievement will require two vows.
  • July – 15/7/17-14/8/17: - Rearm and Replace. With the arrival of 8th edition and the first few weeks of gaming under our belts, it will be time to look to our already painted models and make alterations. As such for the event month in July let’s focus on these projects. (More information to be published soon)

I, Grotsmasha, pledge 1x Despoiler Legionary and 1x Support Legionary to Month 1 of the 2017 Tale of Hobbyists.

My project is an Art Scale Pre-Heresy, Post Lion Dark Angel force. Depending on how things develop, it may turn into a DA/Wolves alliance as Russ and the Lion race to Terra, we'll see.

I also intend on naming each Legionary and giving them each a small amount of history since I intend on completing only one or two models a month.

I've got 15 Legionary's built (with the bits for five more, plus a Chaplain, Apothecary, Techmarine, and Praetor to choose from for the six months of the Challenge.

Pics to follow as soon as I get home thumbsup.gif

This cohort is not to large of number, but as they work their way towards Tigrus a forgeworld under imperium control on the eastern fringe they aim to grow in number and gain favour with the blood God by reaping skulls. I will put more of a back story to everything upon completion of each vow :)

Heldrake - Bailkane

20170525 200310

The Siege of Carinus #3 – Update 1 – Week 1.

 

++

Overview of Project:  

Carinus #3 is moon of the gas giant Carinus in the Buinus System within the sector known as the Obsidian Rift. The moon was a source of many raw materials used in the hive worlds across the sector. Some being extracted directly from the gas Giant, others by deep mines into the moons core. The Moon was terraformed in the Dark Age of Technology, but it was mostly regarded as somewhat of a unimportant location. Following the Age of Apostasy an attempt to increase output was started to support the founding of nearby chapters of space marines and this was a moderate success

 

In 969.M41 a force of Iron Warriors, and other Chaos Space Marine warbands started a campaing to build a empire of their own. And by 980.M41 The Small Raids had broken into a large crusade lead by the Demon Prince Warsmith, and in a move to try and restricted the imperials access to resources the full weight of the Black Crusade fell on the Buinus system. The moon of Carinus #3 was soon in revolt, and quickly the Iron warriors started the fortification of the planet.

 

In response the Emperors Harbingers space marine chapter alongside auxiliary troops were dispatched to Carinus #3 to break chaos’s hold on this world.

 

+++

 

In Month 1 I will focus on the battle field of Carinus #3. To start with I will look at finishing up my large buildings, and then later I may look at barricades and other smaller parts.

The aim will be that all these scenic items will form the backdrop for games played at my house. And this year’s Army’s on Parade table.  

 

 

Currently my buildings look like this:

Uveron, a question if I may.

 

I would like to stick with my original pledge (getting my 30k Mechanicum army out its packaging and on the table) however I would like to do a what I hope is a mini project first for the start of 8th.

 

I would like to do small new army of round about 1000p (or whatever level works for small friendly games). Specifically with the new keyword faction system I would like to do a Ogryn Regiment using Ogryns, Bullgryns and units with similar stats to Ogryns/Bullgryns to fill in other slots (such as HQ) and doing the appropriate conversion.  This army would be Keyword Imperium. I have started a thread over in Astra Miltarum to explore the idea: http://www.bolterand...rgryn-regiment/

 

So my question is, if I embark on this project as my pledge and finish a small army I am happy with before the end of the event can I go back to my Mechanicum pledge and work on that?

The Cleansing of Cyrene
Week One, Update One

Cyrene is a hive world built on mining in the Turin System of the Demarcus Sector. Mining and the military go hand in hand on this world. Many soldiers are lifers or retire to work the mines seeming their fortunes.

Enter the Alpha Legion. Many of the small uprisings in the mines could not be traced directly back to them, but there were rumors. After a large uprising at the mines, tensions spread and even the military was split in outright civil war.

A thirty man contingent of Astral Knights dared to interfere. One group of scouts was cut off in enemy territory and it was deemed that they would call a sister chapter of Dorn for aid. That chapter was the Knights of Lydda.

The Knights of Lydda and the Astral Knights joined forces to rid Cyrene of it's chaos infestation. It would be cleansed, one way, or another.

For this event I will be focusing on the Astral Knights and my DIY chapter the Knights of Lydda. Extra posts will be available in my regular thread starting here:
http://www.bolterand...e/#entry4761953

This month I will be focusing on finishing three of my heroes in my tale. From left to right:
Jordan Job, Emperor's Champion of the Knights of Lydda
Lord Commander Jarae Solomon Chapter Master of the Knights of Lydda
Librarian Milivoj of the Astral Knights (released from duty in the Deathwatch)

0E60DF93-E720-4D0D-9B9F-695B6331C45B_zps

My vow is to paint and base these models this month. If I finish them early I may vow a fourth character.

So, in recognition of the fact that I'm without an army for the coming of 8th, I think I would like to update (but not redact) my vow. 

 

Rather than focussing solely on the Shadow Crusade and Word Bearers from that period, I'd like to include the evolution of those same forces (or at least, the survivors) into the current timeline. The second source of motivation for this change is that the Fate of Konor campaign looks promising, and I'd like to make a combined force of Word Bearers and Chaos allies, including the new Death Guard, to take on those pretentious "primaris" marines at Ultramar.

 

All this is to say I'd like to paint Word Bearers for 30k, with some possible cameos from World Eaters and Ultramarine forces

and 

Word Bearers for 40k (including survivors of the Shadow Crusade-era forces I'll be building in tandem), with Chaos allies and possibly an Ultramarine unit or two.

 

If the scope of this project seems too sweeping for the event, I'll just focus on the 40k Word Bearers and allies. I need a playable army.

I MrBadweed, pledge myself to the B&C 2017 Tale of Hobbyists, my goal will be to FINALLY start and end an army for 8th edition. My project will be a yet unnamed and unfleshed warband of the Black Legion led by Ekron Fal and, if im diligent, the Primaris marines of the Dark Imperium set as adversaries.

 

" Abbadon's triumph was shortlived, for as the warp thundered through realspace so did the god's warriors. No united front to the warmaster's crusade, but a fragmented horde. Moved by their own grudges, interests and the goading of deamons, Hosts and Warbands reneged their oaths to the Warmaster's cause to rampage across the reeling Imperium. Only the true Legion remained focused on the task at hand, for Terra still stood.

 

To that end, Abbadon tasked Ekron Fal, Warlord of the Ezekarion and Lord Harrower of the Sin-mat-Ikali, to conquer, hold and fortify the Belis Corona Sub-Sector, eastern bridge between the two halves of the sundered Imperium and key route to Terra.

 

They were greeted with the blood and fire of avenging sons."

 

The Crimson Path – Update 1 – Week 1.

 

4 Chaos Marines

I, Wulfric, make my two pledges for the first month as follows:

1) Brother Captain Orinoco of the 153rd company of Legio XIII Ultramarines and his command squad, bearing much 'chooom', to be built, painted and based.

Built the captain and two of his command squad; still need to build the standard bearer. Legs / torsos of the squad from (I think?) Puppets War.

 

2) A converted Recon squad of five marines with sniper rifles, built, painted and based.

Bodies from Anvil Industries' Black Ops range, heads from FW destroyers, sniper rifles from Anvil, arms and packs from GW Mk IV.

 

Might even get a transport painted... Phobos Rhino (better known as the Clouseau Rhino)

The Great Rift has opened and countless warp breaches with it. The disparate survivors of ravaged Astra Militarum battle groups retreat to the numerous Departmento Munitorum worlds spread throughout Segmentum Pacificus for munitions and rearmament. But light in the darkness attracts attention and these worlds have only so long before they too become embroiled in war. A single message, bearing sending codes not seet in millenia, has made its way from the high towers of the Adeptus Astra Telepathica down through every strata of the various archivists, collator-savants, and calculatrixes; through the barrack camps of once thousand strong regiments reduced to scrap companies at best and squads at worst; through the temples and churches under the care of Ministorum and Sororitas. ++We are about my Father's work; we march for Humanity and we shall know no fear.++ 
 
I'm taking advantage of the *RULES CHANGE* to finish painting some stuff that's been in progress for, uhm, too long. I'll be using the Rearm & Replace next month to update all the bases you're about to see and gussy up some of the already completed models present.

First Oath of the Moment: I pledge to complete Belial/Deathwing Captain (anyone know if Deathwing Captain's are a thing in 8th?), Deathwing Apothecary, and a Grey Knight terminator.
 
Second Oath of the Moment: I pledge to finish painting ten Deathwing terminators.

The Deathwing characters are both primed and I painted the Captain's face. I made this conversion for Belial before he had a mini and I much prefer it over the walking door obstruction and static pose. I just never finished this last Grey Knight terminator -for various reasons- after doing the metallic base layer. The rest of the Grey Knights will get a touch up during Rearm & Replace.

By the Lion, these are finally getting done! The assault armed brother needs a full work up, including priming the arms and some should pads. Two have the barest of base layers and the rest have stormbolters, plastrons, and Chapter symbols that need completing.

Slowly like a waking from the deepest sleep the ancient conscious mind began to surface. Visual and audio input went live sequentially filling the data feed then external vox.

"Little brother who do we face?"

Artemis smiled always the same question.

"Unknown Xenomortis suspect Xenos cult data incomplete." Artemis wished the picture was clearer but all that was known was Praxis IV had gone dark and the Deathwatch had be requested by a now vox silent Inquisitor.

"Very well have Brother Praal prepare Plasma, Lascannon and Assault cannon and both secondary armaments, I will make final selection before drop."

"very well Xenomortis."

Artemis turned to leave

"Wait brother I will a company you to the brief."

And with that Xenomortis strode from his stasis alcove.

Update One, Month One 

 

jcbmMft.jpg

 

I've decided to do a Black Legion war band, which is a bit different, because I've only ever played loyalist factions. My thinking behind this decision is thus:

 

After the Siege of Terra, the surviving traitors fled to the Eye of Terror. Then there were the Legion Wars, where basically the legions fought, backstabbed and shattered into smaller warbands. What fascinates me however is the Black Legion; I mean, here’s a group of astartes who sort of recognise their need for brotherhood, for family. Space Marines are, put crudely, scientifically tortured child soldiers who are selected for an eternity of killing and maiming and massacring the enemies of their fascist regime. The only thing space marines have is their fellow astartes, their brothers. And so when the legions fractured, they lost this sense of belonging and brotherhood. It was the founders of the Black Legion who (in my head-canon) thought “screw this, we’re nothing without that belonging.” That, in my mind, is what sets the Black Legion apart.

 

The thing that drew me to Chaos Space Marines in the first place, though, was that sense of… melancholy? Dunno if that’s the right word, but they were the ones who built the Imperium in a time of awesome scientific advancement, when living demigods walked amongst men. They lived in the time the Imperium views as biblical myth, and they saw with their own eyes the Emperor and his Primarchs. And they’ve seen what their Imperium has become; essentially a fascist dictatorship whose zombie leader guzzles thousands of psykers a day.

 

So, that’s why I’ve decided to start a force of Black Legionnaires. I’m still deciding on a name (open to ideas!!!), but I was thinking of calling ‘em the Lost Angels or  Bearers of the Light. They’ll be lead by a Thousand Sons sorcerer, and that’s what I’ve got so far…

 

Oh, and they’ll be truescale, so that’s gonna be a steep learning curve for me.  

 

I pledge to assemble/kitbash and paint one truescale Khorne Berzerker and one truescale Chosen marine. My pledge is really small this month because I've got quite a lot on my plate.

I pledge my growing Ultramarines army to the Tale 2017.

My goal is to finish my various WIPs to finally have a fieldable Horus Heresy force with some variation on what to bring to battle.

I haven't done any army lists yet, mostly I just paint what interests me.

 

For the first month's challenge I offer to finish my Tartaros Terminator Squad:

And as my second challenge I offer to finish my Imperial Knight Titan accompanying my boys in blue, still missing clean up and its weapon:

Best of luck and success to everyone participating.

Cheers,

Yves

I, Trokair, pledge one unit of Ogryns and one unit of Bullgryns.

 

I am starting with these so I can familiarise myself with the kits and see what can work so that I have a better idea how to approach the conversions. I will also use these to work out my colour scheme, I will however not be basing them at this point as I don’t know what I want to go for yet.

Thankyou Uveron for taking the time to put this Tale together!
 
I probably won't be able to live up to the pace and standard already set (lol) but I will give it my best shot...
 
After the last Tale I have had a bit of a break, I did put the majority of my planned force together however (minus one Dreadclaw). For this Tale I will focus my efforts on Fulgrim and his Phoenix Guard, set in no particular time during the Heresy, although they are rather uncorrupted so lets say IstvaanV-esque.
 
This force will compromise of :
  • Fulgrim
  • Phoenix Champion "Praetor" (for when Fulgrim is overkill)
  • Brotherhood of the Phoenix "Chaplain"
  • Ten man Phoenix Terminator squad with a Kharybdis Assault Claw
  • Five man Terminator squad with a Dreadcalw
  • Another five man Terminator squad with a Dreadclaw
  • Six man Jetbike squad
  • Another six man Jetbike squad
  • and a pair of Javelin Attack Speeders.
Given that this is a relatively small 'elite' force, I will probably also branch out to some Sons of Horus Veterans if and when time permits.

My plan is to tackle this army in three phases, first being the Terminators and Fulgrim, this allows me to play Zone Mortalis games in the mean time which is always good. Phase two will be the "Speeder Corp." which is the 12 Jetbikes and Javelin duo, finally Phase three will be the Dreadclaw pair and Kharybdis.
 
To start, here are my assembled and primed Terminators so far. For the first month I will work on Fulgrim as I have quite a bit going on that will restrict my time.
