Thanks, the Tryanic War Veterans were basically the Sternguard of the 4th ed. Codex, just not as good, but I love the models, and Sergeant Chronus to lead them and the flag was from my bits box , it's been laying around for a while.

Not a lot done today, as usual, but I did get the Sternguard/ Tyrannic War Veteran sergeant painted up to the same level as the other sergeants in the army, the highlights show up a little better on these pictures, but not too well, I'm going to finish the red off and start the white next. I might try some freehand on the banner, give the TWV badge a go, but that's a big might.
But, here we go, I think he's one of my favourite models so far, very Ultramarine, in my very Ultramarine looking army.

The white has been started, there will probably be no update tomorrow due to hangover, so I decided to update tonight. If anyone still follows this though, I need opinions, do this flag white with blue detail, or blue with white detail? I'm leaning towards white with blue bits at the moment, but I'd like other opinions too.

Not really an update here, just better pictures, I'm going to do a fair bit today, so this is one of a couple of updates.

Did a little more work on Sergeant Ardias, he's really coming together now I think.

I've been getting really shaky hands the past few days, I think I'm coming down with flu or something, so I've done pretty much nothing, here's what I have dragged myself into doing though.


I've also ordered the rest of his squad, but I don't pick them up until a week today, hopefully I'll be feeling better by then though and I'll have something done.

That guy looks really good, you put lots of time into your characters don't you? But one thing is really bugging me.... Why did you change his name?

Thanks, I do try to yes, a bit too much sometimes at the expense of the rest of my models I think though.
And I originally called him Ardias, just a homage to the former Captain of the 3rd, but I changed it to Venator because that's Latin for Hunter, and since he's a Tyranid Hunter, I thought it was pretty fitting. It was either that or Delitor, Latin for Avenger, since he'd be avenging the death of the 1st by the Tyranids.

Flu sucks, nothing is getting done. I was going to wait until I had this guy based and had the rivets painted, but that may be a while. Pretty happy with him though.

And cheers Willnaut, I have to pick up the rest of the squad on Friday, but could be a long time before they even get started.

So, as I'm feeing better, there's a British Blizzard. For those of you unfamiliar with what a British Blizzard is, it's when we have a little bit of snow and the entire country goes insane. Like actually insane, transport has gone to Hell, people are panic buying and we've put down so much grit salt that we'll probably run out soon. Again.
The good news, is that I managed to pick my Tyrannic War Veterans though. I've made a start on them, but two are still left untouched. The bionic arm guy is getting a heavy bolter, he's going to take a lot of work, and the grenade guy is getting a combi-flamer, again, lots of work. Here's the two I've done, still need to scratch off a couple of mould lines, and green stuff a sheath for that guy's leg knife. Might post more later, but I've just ordered pizza and I've sliced my fingers and one thumb to bits carving out the first guy's head.

Done a fair bit of work over the past few days. Captain Fabian and the Sternguard Sergeant are done, they just need basing. Managed to save my Legion of the Damned from my girlfriend's mum's house where they were before the break up/ get back. Also made a start on Cassius too. Well, enjoy:










I also need to finish Fabian's banner, but that'll be a while until I get the transfers from FW. But, C&C guys? Liking them, not liking them?

The Captain looks really nice now! Also, are you starting some Damned Legionaries or is that going to just be veterans? Either way I'm looking forward to seeing them finished.

Hey thanks a lot man, and thanks for sticking with the blog so long. And yeah Legionnaires , they'll be getting painted up soon(ish) still got lots more to do first though.

In other news, I've finished building the Sternguard, all 6 (including the Sergeant above) and I've done a bit more on Cassius. I've been lazy lately though, just little bits every now and then. Work and real life have gotten in the way, I'll put pictures up tomorrow.

This is just a thought but if you washed the ropes on the chest of the captain with Seraphim Sepia or Nuln Oil and then just re-painted the raised portions in pure white it might give them more contrast and help break them up a little.

Late update again sorry guys, not a lot of time on my hands. Took Willnaut's advice on the rope, looks great, so thanks man. Also re-did the power weapons, pretty happy with the result. Cassius is still very WIP, and the Veterans are not painted yet, the heavy flamer guy needs his hands GSing too. But enough talk, here's the pictures!

Thanks a lot man, glad you like them.
But now, back to business. Pretty much finished Cassius last night, just needs the 'Nid painting (suggestions?) and basing.

Big news everyone! Finally had my first game since 4th ed. the other day. 'Twas a lot to take in, but a blast all the same, had two games and neither guy cared that my army is mostly unpainted.
But the second guy, he was a gem. He ran Deathwing, all new models of course, and he did a lot of bragging about his Grey Knight army. I think I may have finally met TFG that people keep telling me about. The main part that stuck out for me though was his complaining about my Captain not having a cloak. Apparently, even with the huge crest on his head, it's too hard to identify who my Captain is (I'd identified the good Captain to him before the game, and pointed him out twice during), and he accused me of MFA. So, I got home and decided to play along. Here's the result, still need to highlight the cloak a little, it looks misshapen in the pictures thanks to the lack of highlights and shading. I highly recommend Anvil Industry, great capes.



Also, I swear I'll get some real work on the rest of the army soon. Probably.

How can that be MFA? You should put cloaks on every model in your army just because of that comment.

And I really like the captain, conversion & painting! The other ones are great too

Oh wow, they keep getting better! Cassius is fantastic, your best work so far I think. I'd do the Tyranid in Leviathan colours though, aren't they coming for Ultramar?

Hey thanks guys. You know, I am tempted now you've said it, but maybe I'll just get a load of Honour Guard instead.
And yeah, they're on their way, I'm just worried that it wouldn't stand out on the base.

I don't see how it's hard to tell that he is a Captain, but the cloak actually fits pretty well anyway. Maybe put a thin black line around the the red side, just a little it in from the edge. possibly put a wreath design in the very corners. There is an example of what I mean in the Blood Angels codex if you have any way of looking at it. If not I can post a picture of what I mean.

As a side note, you gave me a great idea of how to break up my Librarian's front loincloth thing by adding a gold stripe. Thanks for that, and keep up the good work!

I think I know the guy you mean, the Captain holding his helmet? I quite like that idea, nice and simple, but it'd break up the red nicely.
And I'm glad to help, I'd love to see some pictures if you have any?

Yeah it's the helmet guy. I don't have any pictures right now because my camera is pretty low quality but I'm going to borrow my friends so I should upload some pictures eventually.

Hey man, thanks a lot, but barely anything in my army is painted, there's only three that actually are, but I've got a full day off tomorrow, so I'll do some stuff. And your stuff is great by the way, I've been following it for a while now, keeps getting better.
As for the colour scheme I use; it's Chaos Black under coat, Macragge Blue base coat, Drakenhoff Nightshade wash, Altdorf Guard layer and then highlights in Calgar blue for characters such as Sergeants and Veterans, but for the line troops it's a drybrush of Etherium Blue instead.

Now, on to the updates: I've been busy with outside stuff as of late, going to gigs and bars, taking the girlfriend out, going to work, you get the picture.
But I haven't been totally idle, I finished off the cape and re-did the loincloth in the same way. Then I browsing eBay the other day and spotted the Black Reach Tactical squad for £14, fair game.
Swapped out the flamer for a plasma gun and did some converting on the Sergeant. They only came today, so they still need cleaning properly, and I've just realised that I've forgotten to glue the Sergeant's head on. Silly me.

Anyway, C&C guys?
And thank you to everyone for all the kind words so far, and to everyone who's watching.

Well, as the new title says, I've actually done some painting. I've been signed off work again for the foreseeable future, which means even though I have more time to paint, as you may have noticed, I rarely have much motivation. But, I have finally dragged myself into doing something and finished the blue on the Veterans, and put the base of grey down for the white. These guys are getting a lot of gold on them, just to signify their veteran status. I also scraped the heavy flamer guy, he was pretty naff, and swapped the combi melta to a combi flamer.

C&C guys at all guys? I'd love to hear any input.
