Thank you. The bolters were super easy and fun, and they really help to break up all the red. The plague marine was a joy to paint. I tried to make his armour look more worn than disgusting, although I did do some more rust streaks later.

Thanks everyone!
There'll be more KSons soon. I'm going to pick up a large FW order when I next go to London (or the next time someone I know goes...), which will have several things for both my KSons and my Ravens.
I'm in Italy right now, so I can't get any painting done, but I've done some more sketches that I'll hopefully be able to post when the internet here, which is being routed through the US, gets better. Yes, it's dial-up. No, I don't have a time machine.
I'm also thinking about painting some HH Emperor's Children, loyalists of course. What do you guys think?


Automatically Appended Next Post:
Tada! The dial-up internet pulled through!

I'll hopefully finish the sketch tommorow. In planning on adding another gal vorbak and a KSons assault marine charging each other, and maybe a dark apostle and a librarian engaged in a psychic duel...

The plan is to have the big Veteran squads (with apothecaries) and the terminators take and hold objectives, while the smaller squad (without a rhino), support squad and seekers go hunt specialist units, like terminators or salamanders pyroclasts. I gave everyone I could a vexilla, to stop my entire army from screaming whenever someone rolls perils. Which will probably happen.
The two vet squads with rhinos get a librarian or an ahriman. The one with big A will probably hang back, while Tolbek's squad goes IC hunting. The Praetor, which has seen a big change (No more jetbike!) will end up in the assault squad, which will go and kill stuff.
The Castellax will go destroy heavy units, and the predator is for big annoying blobs.

Now, you may notice that my list is lacking anti armour. Well, I've got that covered (sort of). Most of the veteran squads will be running Pyromancy, and hopefully be able to get a few Molten Beams off. I also have a plethora of melta bombs.

All in all, its a fun, fluffy list that works with my play style, makes use of the Sons awesome psychic abilities and has a bunch of cool looking units.





Next up on my painting list are the seeker sergeant, the rest of the not-rubricae and the last terminator. Stay tuned!

Well guys, I decided to latch out all my 30k infantry. I think it’s almost enough, considering I have 30+ more Dudes to do.

This does not count my vehicle, which I either couldn’t find or are on my painting desk (or in the mail).
I have started working on the second veteran squad (and the last two members of the first...)

Was looking over those poxwalkers, coloration on them is excellent. They look like bodies who have been exposed to the elements for a few days (a good thing, in terms of detail work on a zombie-type creature.)

Thanks guys! I finished painting the Poxwalkers last week, and they were incredibly enjoyable. i would recommend them to anyone who hasn't already painted any.

cormadepanda wrote:love seeing 30k Tsons, hope this thread keeps up.


It will. There have, however, been a few problems preventing me from painting. Firstly, I had exams last week. Secondly, it is now too cold to spray paint and thirdly, I spilled the last of my agrax earthshade and haven't had enough time to go pick up more.

Great idea(s)! I love the Khenetai models, and the orison too. First up, however, I have a few other FW things to paint. Stay tuned!

Also, I am currently painting my second tactical squad, and I decided to model one of them as a member of another legion that had been sent to prospero to train their psychic abilities. Now, the obvious choice would be a White Scar, Blood Angel or Word Bearer, but I could also go with another legion, like the Alpha Legion or even the Sons of Horus. What do you guys think?

Also, those of you who follow my Eldar blog, would you prefer if I combined it with this one, and changed this one a sort of general painting blog à la Ember?

Haha I hope Nurgle hasn't shown you too much favour

Not sure on the combined plog front. It does help people find your work easier if you've got the one plog I think, but personally I like splitting out my eldar and human stuff. Not overly sure why to be perfectly honest...

Once i actually start my Void revival (probably in a year or two) I'll give it its own plog but i keep all the GW stuff in one general one, i just don't have enough to justify splitting it up.

Edit : so if you feel you don't do enough eldar to justify separation then merge.

Hey everyone!
I'm not dead yet, surprisingly. But I have forgotten to update my blogs over the last few weeks. Since it is now 2018, I decided to do a recap of the last twelve months. All in all, i managed to fully paint:
50models.
Spread over 3 worlds/eras.
The models are part of 8 different armies, and 6 different allegiances. There are more space marines than any other faction, with 26. These are members of 3 different legions.
There are 41 infantry models, 6 characters (including 3 named characters), 1 cavalry model, 1 walker and 1 tank.
The models here are members of 4 different races: humans, skaven, elves and eldar. Humans are the most common, but all of them have been modified in some way. There are space marines, custodes, a tech priest and poxwalkers.
While painting these miniatures, I tested out 9 new paint schemes. That's right: not one of these miniatures is painted like any other one I painted before 2017. That makes this year my most adventurous year ever since I started painting!
Unfortunately, there is also some bad news. At the beginning of 2017, I promised to finish my Thousand Sons army before the end of the year. However, I still have 33 models left to paint. Oh well.




So that's my year in numbers. Next up, I have my favourite minis from this year.

Fifth: My Dark Mechanicum techpriest.



Next, in fourth, my favourite (and only!) space wolf: Geigor.



In third, the guy on the right here (ignore the other one). I'm really proud of the rust effects and the blue tabard.



In second comes this guy, who is one of my seekers. I love everything about him, from the pose, to the paint job to the base.


And, finally, at number one: my version of Tolbek.



Well, that's all from me. 2017 was an amazing year for me, at least hobby wise. I managed to complete most of my goals for the year... well, almost. Which brings me to next year's goals:

IN 2018, EMBER WILL ATTEMPT TO:
-FINISH MY KSONS!
-PAINT A UNIT FROM EVERY CHAOS GOD IN BOTH AoS AND 30K/40K!
-PAINT A KSONS TANK!
-MAKE MY 3' x 3' ZONE MORTALIS TABLE INTO A 4' x 4' ONE!
-BUILD A NECROMUNDA REFINERY THAT'S BETTER THAN CAMKIERHI'S ONE!
-WIN A GAME OF 30K AGAINST MY FLGS OWNER'S DEATH GUARD!

Hey guys!

I spent the weekend in London, and during my trip I finally managed to shake off my Star Wars obsession that has been keeping me from painting. So I'm back now! While I was there, I remembered to pick up my bonesinger and MTO farseer, which'll be painted soon if the weather stays good. I also purchased one of the new nurgle heroes for my AoS chaos army.

In addition, I found a copy of The Crimson King in the semi-softback version, along with a SINGED copy of GARRO for a total of 10 pounds. Yay!

I'm currently painting my Kairic acolytes, stay tuned!

Also, what do you guys think about using this:

as a KSons scout knight/ heavy lifter for my spaceship?

Holy Terra.

Hey everyone!
I'm going to play a game of 30k next Saturday, and I decided to run something different. Instead of taking either my Ravens or Thousand Sons, I decided to take both and run them as Shattered Legions. In order to use the After Istvaan RoW, however, you need a RG, Salamanders and Iron Hands HQ choice. Since I already have several Raven Guard ones, and a Salamanders chaplain, I just needed a IH one. So I decided to go with the big man himself (Big Sharrak? Man's not dead? Sorry...)



This is what I managed to throw together. Hopefully I'll manage to get him painted before next week.

Stay tuned!
Ember

Holy Terra.

Hey everyone!!
I have made lots of progress since I last updated my blog, including my first big game with my KSons!

Shattered legions VS Death Guard. My list was mostly Sons with a few Raven Guard units, and I may have taken too many psykers (veterans become NC-troops with the RoW I chose) because I absolutely destroyed my opponents army. Although that might be because his units failed to do anything spectacular: his phosphex-armed medusa missed everything, I killed a contempt and a tactical squad in one round of shooting with my Sicaran, and his big unit of terminators with attached chaplain were killed by one small squad of volkite.
Also, if any of you are wondering, 2-wound terminators have no chance against a force axe wielding Librarian who also has Hatred.

Now, on to my plans for the future. I've always wanted an imperial militia army so I can run the Army of Dark Compliance theme, but most of GW's 40k humans just don't fulfil my requirements for a 30k army.
That is, until now:

What do you guys think? Would an army of guys like this look cool? I have a basic list idea right now, I'll probably take Survivors of the Dark Age and Gene-crafted as my Provenances, and use grenadiers squads and sentinels to make a small, fast-moving army.

And finally, I have of course finished up several more Thousand Sons units. Unfortunately, I have been sick for the past two weeks, so I don't have any photos right now. However, I will post some this evening. Stay tuned!

I always hated librarians who hated me back, but with an axe. I enjoy the game. 30k is in 7th edition rules which leave a bit sad. Still glory to the marine on the marine action.

I think the necromunda guy is a bit over the top, but he is totally cool as an elite trooper. Perhaps over geared for a line trooper. But who am I to judge?

I think the new Van Sarr models are amazing, and a big departure from GW's traditional aesthetic and the aesthetic they've been going for since AOS. That said, I think comradepanda is right, probably a bit OTT for line troopers in 40 or 30K. I might even get some for just generic advanced sci-fi humans outside of GW.
