Hi all,

 

I'm a new member here at the B&C, and I am in the process of building and painting a variety of armies for 30K (for 40K too, but that's a different section of the forum I believe). 

 

There is currently NO interest in my hobby club about the Heresy, everyone is fixated on playing 9th Ed. 40K. Personally I haven't tried 9th, hated 8th and was none to keen on 6th and 7th either. More than likely I will be playing with a couple of friends using 40K 5th edition as the basis for our games, adding in some alternating/random activation shenanigans in place of the IgoUgo style of standard 40K. Yes, I realize that this makes me a heretic in many peoples eyes. No, I don't really care. msn-wink.gif  I like to have fun playing non-competitive games and I quite enjoy tinkering with rules between games, so this works best for me. 

 

In terms of models and armies, don't expect to see a lot of Forgeworld goodies in this thread. I have a few FW minis I bought years ago, but I don't have a lot of cash at the moment. Most of my models come from the BaC and BoP boxes, along with whatever 40K stuff I can kitbash and a few 3rd party bitz here and there. Obviously I am trying to avoid mk.VII armour, but the odd arm/bolter/chainsword or two may crop up from time to time.

 

My forces so far are based loosely around the Shadow Crusade/Imperium Secundus, and I have minis set aside for Word Bearers, World Eaters, Ultramarines and Dark Angels, plus assorted Dramatis Persona for the narrative part of the games.

 

I hope to have some painted minis to show off in the near future, but in the meantime here are a handful of World Eater assault marines that I primed up recently.

Ah a fellow rules agnostic/FW-lite HH player - was beginning to think I was the only one! Looking good so far, the fellow on the far left in particular.

@C.K.Angel - Thanks for the welcome. 

@Qkhitai - Rules are all just made up by some gamer or another. The only thing special about the 'official' rules is that that gamer got paid.... And I am so jealous. biggrin.png

 

No work on my World Eaters so far, but more of them are being primed.

 

In the meantime I did manage to get a test model done for some Legio Custodes.

A WIP shot of my World Eater assault squad.

And a close up of the sergeant.

The armour is Vallejo Light Grey mixed 50:50 with white, and the pauldrons are painted in Vallejo Heavy Blue mixed 50:50 with metallic medium to give them a little bit of a metallic sheen.

Well, the World Eaters are done. I don't have the official 30K decals for the shoulders and FW's asking price is insane, so I have used the 40K decal sheets for these fellows.

And the full unit together.

Ultramarines next I think.

For the time being I have a tactical squad and a support squad on my desk. I also have a dreadnought, a seeker squad and a heavy support squad lined up for them.

Some WIP shots of some Ultramarines.

And this is an old Rhino hull that I picked up cheap that needed some repair work doing. A few bits from an IG tank and some spare guns from a predator and I made myself a little tank-hunter. No idea what to call it yet though. I'm thinking of adding a pintle mounted weapon to a top hatch as it looks a little bare.
