It is an exceptional miniature Paradigm, I bloomin' love it. Must restrain myself from making a Chaos Legion to go with him.

And cheers Theo and YWS as well, I am proud of my job on him. Have moved onto some proper Celestial Lions today so will hopefully have progress tomorrow.

Great work on Abaddon and the GSC, the turquoise on their vehicles looks particularly nice.

I’m especially looking forward to a return to your lions though, that gold is great

Thank you Gobert, hopefully you will be happy with my latest hodge podge update.

First up is some GSC Progress in the form of a Clamavus and another 10 Brood Brothers so at least I have two troop units fully painted.

Here is MC Jazzy Clamavus, mixing his way to a battlefield near you:







And the Brood Brothers, here in glorious Blur-O-Vision:



And a close up of two of them, the cult symbol is not an actual option for Brood Brothers in game but I wanted to Cultify the unit a bit:



I have also finally got round to my final 5 Space Marine heroes for my Celestial Lions, I must admit to loving these sculpts and all told I think they make a great Tactical Squad:






And with my previous 5:



Phew, finally proving that I refuse to join the hype here are the new Havocs:




I am happy with my own Reaper Chaincannon kitbash, simply a gatling cannon from the Repulsor kit fitted onto a heavy bolter:





So that is all from a bumper update, thanks for looking.

Lovely work, as always.

I am digging that Reaper conversion. Makes for very cool models.

Forgot to mention that I also added a Raptor head on the chaincannon guy, the Havoc heads are a bit odd in that the helmeted ones have wires coming out of the back that attatch to the backpacks.

Have actually gotten back to the initial point of this blog and painted a couple of Conquest minis, just a couple of Intercessors but I like how they came up. Just a headswap from the full Intercessor kit for one of them, he looks like he has been in the wars.



This led me to thinking of doing a couple of army progress shots, the first one being a painted shot and the second is what I have left to do. So first up my Celestial Lions:





You may notice Marneus Calgar and his honour guard in that shot, yes they are Ultramarines but I plan to paint them up in the Lions colours...the codex be damned!

I also decided to do similar shots for my GSC, am quite happy with my progress on these as the army has only been out a couple of months:






And what is left to do:



If anyone is interested I can also do similar shots for my Death Guard, Deathwatch and Imperial Knight armies. I do not think that I have shown any of the latter two armies on this blog. Anyway, thanks for looking.

Great progress on all the armies! Bring on more army shots if you've got the time!

I'm also really liking your SM Heroes tactical squad, really nice paintjobs! I'd like to get the models myself, but I'm not too keen on buying blind. I guess one wouldn't hurt..!

Wow, nice collection of great looking armies and put together at quite a pace (don't think I'd have kept up with the magazine releases let alone all the other stuff you've added). My favourites are the marines, really effective colour scheme and your gold looks really good. You've even managed to make the aggressor models look good, intrigued to see if you can work the same magic on the inceptors.

Thanks for the kind words and support everyone, really helps with the motivation.

I have made a little more Celestial Lion progress, here is a WIP of a nearly finished Redemptor Dreadnought armed with Plasma Incinerator. This is the ETB model from Conquest with the main weapon arm nabbed from the proper Redemptor kit. I also added a searchlight to add a bit of interest to the rather bare top of the model and an aquila from the Imperial Knight kit, just had to remove the connecting lug and slightly bend it to fit the shoulder pauldron. Here he is resplendent in poor British light:





So now onto army shots, completely forgot to photograph my unpainted Deathguard minis but all told it is about 30 models:







By far my biggest army, at least 3000pts painted, probably more.

Much smaller are my Deathwatch, and yes, I do like Dreadnoughts very much!








Here is the big issue, all the unpainted stuff. A lot of it:



The Razorback will probably be moved over to the Celestial Lions.

Finally here are my few Imperial Knight models, no particular house:



To complete them I have a Castellan, 2 Knight kits and the Canis Rex kit to construct and paint.

As ever thanks for looking, have a great weekend.

Beautiful. Just beautiful. All around great stuff.

I did surpress a chuckle at what you consider to be a lot of unpainted stuff, though. Your purchasing restraint is to be commended.

Thanks again for sharing and I look forward to whatever comes next.

That’s a mighty impressive bunch of armies! The Nurgle guys are really characterful, but the purple and copper knights steal it for me! I’m looking forward to watching as the unpainted pile is reduced!

@Theophany: Cheers dude, it is a big slice of Deathguard though. No Plaguebearers though, I tend to stay away from the daemons.

@Paradigm: I wish they were Epic, they would have certainly been cheaper to buy!

@Youwasshock: Cheers, all told I think my painted stuff to unpainted stuff is about 50/50 about 200 odd minis on each side. The real issue is storing and displaying the painted stuff, a trip to Ikea may be in order.

@Gobert: I really do need to revisit my Knights, agreed on the scheme. The purple with bronze and black and white accents is my favourite.

@Maharg: Show me a wargamer with an unpainted miniature and I will show you a liar! If I can provide anyone with a smidgeon of inspiration then I will be happy.

Have happily added a bit more heavy artillery for my Celestial Lions with my second Redemptor Dreadnought for them. Did anybody mention that I really like Dreadnoughts? Enough waffle, on with the photos:









And here he is with his brother in arms:



And a little look at what is to come:

Sigh...I failed with my no purchase pledge. It was pay day today so I made a couple more Celestial Lion purchases, this time going the old school route with some possible survivors from Armageddon.

Namely some assault Terminators and a Devastator squad. The former are definitely old school from maybe 2004 odd but I am a sucker for Terminators no matter how far they are from their lore effectiveness. Not sure if I will go lightning claws or thunder hammers but we shall see.

Devastator wise I will go with 2x Lascannon and 2x plasma cannon for some anti tank, something that the Primaris marines certainly lack.

Progress wise I have painted more Conquest marines, I only have my 3 final Reivers and Death Guard tainted cohort left to do then I am done with my Conquest subscription bar my Forbidden Planet purchases.

Apologies for the dull update, more pictures will come tomorrow. Thank you for looking.

Awesome Armies all of them keep it coming!!!

Let no man glory in the greatness of his mind,
but rather keep watch o'er his wits.
Cautious and silent let him enter a dwelling;

for none can find a more faithful friend

Lions have claws, but thunder hammers look rad. Hard call to make. Either way, I very much look forward to awesome gold and blue terminators.

@Ghostmaker: Thank you very much, I appreciate it.

@Youwasshock: It is a quandry, I am leaning towards the claws even though they are probably the less competitive option.

Onto progress, I have been clearing up a few odds and ends I had for various units. When it was out I picked up another copy of the Aggressor issue of Conquest. One of the minis has been sequestered into the Deathwatch leaving me with two spares, this meant I could put together a unit of 5 Aggressors for my Lions, the only change I made to one of the stock models was a bare head from the full Aggressor kit. I also changed the helmet on the sergeant, or in the Lions case pack Leader, to the lore appropriate black. I have repeated this throughout the army.

Primaris Aggressor Celestial Lions:



And the full unit:



I also painted the two Helblasters from a Conquest issue and added them to another three from Dark Imperium to create a full unit of five:





Am happy with how these turned out, I especially like the one headswap.

Finally I sequestered an unpainted Razorback from my Deathwatch "to be painted" pile. He will probably be used to ferry around half of the Space Marine Heroes Tactical squad I recently painted. I am really happy with it but he looks a bit crappy in the photos, apologies for that:









Finally I kitbashed a few more Intercessor marines and another Primaris Lieutenant, everybody knows that you can never have too many Primaris Lieutenants:

Well it has been a while since I posted in this blog, mainly due to working away at my other blog for CMON's A Song Of Ice and Fire miniatures game taking my attention away from 40k. But the release of the new Chaos Knights has changed that, to that end I have this little lot to work on:



From looking at the kits the main canopy and shoulder pads are easily interchangeable between the Chaos and Imperial kits, so the Canis Rex will be suitably Chaosified by a bit of kit bashing. The Castellan and Armiger Helverins will be converted using left over bits and chaos Rhino sprue parts.

But my loyalist tendencies remain as well, I am currently working on a single Celestial Lion Intercessor:



I have never really bothered with Funko Pops but could not resist buying the DIY one to act as a cheerleader on my painting bureau.

Finally I have started work on my Loyalist Castellan, nothing major here but hopefully I will get him painted up before I start on my Chaos Knights:

Not only a great motivational piece, but if it’s a bobble head then getting approval for increasing the ranks becomes easier too.

“Should I buy more Primaris marines?” (Table bump) model nods yes (even better than a magic 8ball).

Thanks everyone, yesterday was a construction rather than painting day, I managed to get three of my six Chaos Knights made up.

First up is the Knight Despoiler, this is basically a Warden/Paladin but Chaosified. I used a number of bits from the new Chaos kit to make him more despoiled. I ended up using a faceplate, tilt shield, shoulder pad and various chains and spikes to make him fit into the army:





I also got the close combat Knight Rampager made up, I really like this kit it just adds a lot more visual interest to the Knight line:





With Knights I only magnetise the section between the legs and body, this makes them easier to transport and pack away. To that end you can swap the Despoiler and Ravager legs and body like this:





Finally up is my first Wardog with autocannons, nothing special here but I think it looks the part:





I think I am erring towards painting these up as the Iconoclast House Herpetrax (that is the study of snakes, not that other thing, get your mind out of the gutter) whose dull green fits in well with my Death Guard.

Anyway, thanks for looking. If anyone wants a closer look at the new kits just ask.
