Build the end of the Wraith into the base, gives it more support. He might lose a few inches, but that's the least of his concerns!

@WarbossDakka thanks! I'll try that!

I finished the building phase! Here he is!

His staff is from the Skaven Plague Monks box, it gives him a more archaic look than a electronic one. The weird GS blob will become some kind of fleshy device, Maybe tenticles?


The "body" is a GK Psicannon jammed up his robe and the flamethrower is Sisters of Silence. Oh, and the chain blade is a chain fist attachment from BoP.


The holes in his robe are great for cables.


And a final pic.


Thats it for now! If anyone has an idea for his name please share, it would help me a lot!

I decided to paint the Tech Priest pink instead of red, to show he's sort of renegade. I'll be gone for the week, so no more painting until next Thursday. Sorry.

[LOCATION: Unknown, Prospero Subsector_ ]
[YEAR: 0005 M.41_ ]

The procession of crimson clad warriors, perhaps 40 in total, reached to top of the cliff. At it head, his helmet mag-locked to his, stood a legionaire with long black hair. Ahriman stepped forward, his veterans and Amon behind him. The bare headed warrior knelt. "Thank the Emperor!" he cried "we are not alone!"
Amon shifted nervously beside Ahriman. He cast a glance at Tolbek, who shook his head slowly.
"Tell me, lord Ahriman" said the kneeling astartes "has prospero been saved?"
Ahriman waited before speaking
"No."
The silence rang out. None of the surrounding Marines dared speak.
Ahriman knelt down and placed a hand on the kneeling Space Marines head.
"Tell me, brother, how did you manage to escape the wolves."
The kneeling space marine stood, followed by Ahriman. He turned to his assembled warriors before speaking.
"I am sergeant Bathos of the XVth legion. I am a son of Magnus the Red and a loyal servant of the Emperor of Mankind."
Tolbek moved beside Ahriman.
"Perhaps his sanity has been somewhat changed" said Tolbek.
"Quiet" replied Ahriman.
Bathos, ignorant to Tolbeks remark, continued:
"I was sent by our Primarch to accompany the Tech-Priests of Zhao-Arkad on their expedition to the Halo stars, to search for Archaotech. I was sent under Magos Explorator Anhortari, captain of the Eye of the Omnissiah. Upon leaving the Prospero system, we were attacked by the VIth legions vanguard. Boarded by the Wolves, we were forced to barricade them in the lower decks and activate our warp drive far from Prospero's Mandeville Point."
He paused for a minute before continuing, his voice barely a whisper.
"We could not close the warp shutters. There are... things there. Unholy things. They spoke to us, and more than one of us spoke to them." He shuddered "And then the Wolves arrived. They had freed thenselves from the hold, and they rushed the bridge while we were still trying to set out destination."
He lifted a hammer from a strap on his back.
"I took this from the dead form of the Wolves leader. But not before they slaughtered half of us. We were forced to exit the Immeterium and land here. Where you found us."
He turned to Ahriman.
"And why are you here?"
Ahriman removed his helmet. He smiled.
"I wish to return our legion to its rightful place beside the Emperor.
We are going to find the Warmaster."

Yes.

And refuse to love the Spinosaurus because it is a hamfisted attempt at taking what you loved, making it TREX +++ and trying to sell you it.

To be fair, that is a very good drawing. Probably the best portrait of a block of cheese I've ever seen!

Really though, as long as I see a finished Arhiman (he was shaping up really well) I'm not bothered where you go with this. Which Craftworld has taken your fancy?

Mymeara. But stay tuned, my next fluff installment will *hopefully* explain everything, and I will try my best not to make it a fanfic about Ahriman and some farseer. Actually, that sounds kinda nea- NO!


And the KSons will still be worked on.

[LOCATION: Unkown, Segmentum ULTIMA_ ]
[YEAR: 0006 M.31_ ]
Ahriman followed Bathos down the narrow corridors of the Eye of the Omnissiah. Three of Ahriman's veterans followed, their footfalls echoing off the walls. They paused before a large blast door and waited, while Bathos punched in a code.
Ahriman glanced at the walls.
"What is that symbol?" He asked.
Bathos turned as the door opened. He gestured towards the blood colored sogil on the walls.
"Whenever the Wolves drew the blood of one of us, it pooled into that shape. No doubt something to do with the warp currents. It doesn't come off."
Ahriman remained silent as they entered the bridge. The few remaining servitors clattered away in their cubicles, each lit by a a single red light. The only other light came from the systems star, just visible in the far distance.
Bathos and Ahriman climbed the steps to the observation deck, where Amon and Tolbek stood. Behind them floated Tech Priest Khardon, the de-facto captain of the Eye of the Omnissiah. Ahriman felt uneasy at the sight of the Magos, the weeks since their arrival having done nothing to quench his feelings.
Amon turned towards theme
"First Captain"
Ahriman nodded in recognition.
"I have received news from our brothers on Soritarius. They wish for us to return."
Ahriman smiled, his bare head inclining slightly.
"No." He replied.
"I will not return. Take your troops, if you wish, and leave. But I shall stay."
Amon stepped forward.
"You have been acting off since Magnus fell, Ahriman. We all feel it, but will you turn your backs on your brothers because of it? Will you go so far?"
Ahriman turned his back to Amon. He sighed.
"Before we left, I created a psychic memory of myself on Soritarius. Return if you wish."
Ahriman continued.
"If you do return, talk to the others about our plan. My reflection will assist you, just as well as the flesh and blood me. Tell them of our cause. And make it happen. Save the legion."
Amon stepped back. He smiled.
"You have not change. I am glad to see that."
He turned as well, and gestured to his veterans.
"Gather in the lower decks, and prepare for our departure."
He turned once more and smiled at Ahriman.
"Good hunting."
"To you as well, Amon." Replied Ahriman. "To you as well."

Holy Terra.

Well, I picked up my brush for the first time in three weeks and got to work (I really want to finish my painting comp entry).

The results of the last few hours:

Nearly-complete Magos:



And started my Sisters of Silence! I was originally going to paint them bronze, but then I spotted James Karchs Astral Templars in WD 113, so decided to paint them purple. The armour is 1:1 Khorne Red and Abaddon Black, highlighted with 1:1:1 Khorne Red, Black and White Scar. The robes are Rakarth Flesh, and the gold is the same as my Custodes' details (retributor followed by liberator gold).



Next up are the rest of the KSons vets. I'll be batch painting them, so it won't take too long.

Pics of the Magos:

I really like how the rust turned out, considering its just lamian medium with some mournfang brown and fire dragon bright mixed in.


My thoughts on the tentacle things is that the magos expels his guts to take in information, as another sense, and because its gross and I like starfish.






Last pic. His mechanicum symbol has a compass in it (that looks strangely like a chaos star), and his base has green marble flagstones on it, along with something distinctly... xenos. Wonder what it is?

Termies and marines I think. Tbh I don't really like the look of the new walkers. That is just personal preference though.

Holy Terra.

Yeah, the Osiron would probably be the most useful, but those Khenetai and termies look super cool.

Unfortunately, yesterday was ma FLGS's flea market, something I had been looking forward to for almost a year now (last time I managed to get six OOP warhawks and a unit of five war dancers for a grand total of 30 CHF, about 20£). I woke up yesterday with a cold, decided to go out in the rain anyways and made the half-hour train trip to the store to find... one of the owners selling a few sylvaneth and some other guy who had a box full of broken 'nids (almost bought those, until I realised there were the parts for three carnifexes and no instruction booklets), some likewise broken Tau and the worst painted dark vengeance box set ever. I nearly bought the syvaneth, until I asked for the price. The owner wanted 30 for ten dryads, which he justified because he had removed the mould lines very carefully AND already undercoated them. Now, that seemed like a deal until I realised I could turn around, take three steps and arrive at the stores AoS section, where a box of 16 dryads costs 34 CHF.

And now I have a worse cold AND no new models

The Magos turned out very nice.

As for the new release selection...just pick what you want to paint and you will enjoy that more than any particular gaming advantage.

OK! Im back after facing nurgle (love my papa, even though he is a jealous bugger), and I think they KSons are ready for some more love. Seriously, its been more like "Everything But The Sons of Prospero Go To War" these last few weeks.

What I plan to do today:
Finish my first veteran squad.
Build 5 more ZM tiles.
Base Ahriman.
Make bases for the rest of the army.
Paint the support squad.
Build the rest of tac squad 1.
Strip my old Guardians.
Undercoat Guardians.
Paint Guardians.
Eat lunch.
Eat dinner.
Order my Eldar models
Make a timeline of roman history because why not.

What I have done today.
Finished 1 veteran.
Built 1 tile.

Stay tuned! I'll be updating throughout the day with pics and updates (Updating with updates now, ember? You should have though that through better...-Inner Ember)

Well, wish me luck!
