Hi all,

Not much of a painting update; but I've finally been able to get a game under my belt at 1,250 pts. It was against a new Deamon list, all the warhounds are in for Flesh hounds.









We went for kill points as its my second game in 8 or so years.

It didn't end so well for me, but I learnt some really worthwhile lessons!

7 - 3 to the Deamons, BT's tabled.

Hi all,

I played my first ever apocalypse game with my Armageddon army.

4 vs 4 - 4,000 pts each, 32,000 points total.

Managed to grab a few shots, so please enjoy.


Got tanks?


















Strategic asset used for 100+ Boyz and 3 war-bosses turn up on my flank!




Two master of Ordinances, battle tanks, and punishers later...





























Thanks all!

Fella's,

Quick one. What do you recon to my Black Templar basing.

Rather than the standard grey building dust, I've been considering going for more of a dusty Armageddon sand look, with the same white tiles, and sand tufts?

So Balor Brown, Agrax'd, Zamesi Desert highlight, Terminus stone drybrush.

Instead of the Administratum grey, dawnstone drybrush

Think it might make them pop more.

Thanks,

Hi all,

8th edition has kicked my arse in gear and as such I want to use this as my initial testing list for my Templars: Given the synergy I want a pure Templar list, no Steel Legion:

Due the majority of leaks and previewing the index/rulebook in store I've been able to get a list together. Understandably until we play who knows how its going to pan out however;
I'm looking for some CC, to see if there is anything I'm missing.

Battalion Detachment: 2-3 HQ, 3-6 Troops, 0-6 Elites, 0-3 Fast Attack, 0-3 Heavy Support, 0-2 Flyers
Spearhead Detachment: 1-2 HQ, 3-6 Heavy Support

Land Raider Reedemer

High Marshall Helbrecht

The Emperor's Champion

Apothecary

Crusader Squad I x9
Sword Brother w/ Power Fist
Initiate w/ Power Axe

Land Raider Crusader

Rechlusiarch Grimaldus

Cenobyte Servitors x1

Crusader Squad II x10
Sword Brother w/ Power Fist
Initiate w/ Power Axe
Neophyte w/ shotguns x3

Intercessor Squad I x5

Terminator Assault Squad x5
x2 Thunder Hammer / Storm Shield

Centurion Devastator Squad x3
x3 Twin Las
x3 Cent Missile Launch

42 Models 102 Wounds 1999 Points 7 Command Points

My main aim is to stay fairly fluffy with the crusade squads, supported by some nice HQ choices. The Reedemer LR goes off in search of elite and character hunting. With the Apoth looking to keep the Marshall and the Emperuh's champion alive.

The Marshall provides re-rolls to hit as well as Grimaldus. That's why I've split them up. Hes then in the Crusader for anti-infantry purposes.

The intercessor squad is for some fire support with -1 AP, but mainly back field objective holders. That and I needed a third troop choice to make up my battalion detachment.

Centurion Dev's do what they say on the tin. Long range fire support and anti-vehicle.

Terminator assault squad is there to deploy in as and where I need them.

I've also started on my painting and modelling to get things ready:


Crusader squads and HQ's


Shotgun Neophytes (Strength 5)


Centurion Dev's

Thanks,

I love that Emperor's Champion model!

Space Marine flyers are shaped for the greatest possible air resistance so that the air may never defeat the SPACE MARINES!
Sternguard though, those guys are all about kicking ass. They'd chew bubble gum as well, but bubble gum is heretical. Only tau chew gum

I've finally settled on my chapter for Primaris marines.

Looks like its another Fist Successor.

The Celestial Lions. In dire need of reinforcement!

I will be using:

https://www.shapeways.com/product/4MKSLKR2S/roaring-lions-gen7-standard-shoulder-x10?optionId=57342386

For my shoulder upgrades.

https://www.forgeworld.co.uk/en-FI/Dark-Angels-Legion-Heads-Upgrade-Set

For head swaps, as I think these have a lion-esqe look. I've been hard pressed to find any better alternatives. Likewise for any African 28mm heads that would suit. Other than warlord games Zulu miniatures, but I'm not certain of their scale.

Want to do a very dry savannah-esqe base as well.

Watch this space.

Hi all,

Here's my first test model on the Celestial Lions Primaris marines.

Hope you like it!


First Try

Initially I felt like it was still missing detail so I tried for a yellow power armour glow on the neck/lenses. The star charts to make the blue pop. Also some tribal face paint.
Need to thin the lines down and then try for the pupils. Also tried some gold battle damage on the shins/pads not sure on that.



Thanks!

Got in a wholeee lotta time for batch painting this weekend.

Still really lost for which colour to go with for plasma incinerator glow!? Any thoughts?



Humble beginnings. The real time sink was removing all of the left shoulder pads so that I can replace them with these:





More base layers going down.



Where I got to last night.



I also have this fella to convert up into Ekene Dubaku. Looking for a mechanical leg replacement though!

Great project and WIPs here mate. Was it a lot of work/did it take long to remove the left pads from the Primaris marines?

It was a huge pain in the ass @Azazelx. However...

I asked POP Goes The Monkey if he would consider making the curved insigna set instead. So here we go gents:

Now that will save a ton of pain!

WIP on my version of Ekene Dubaku.



My thoughts are that he's gotten a little older since his last meeting with Grimaldus!

Celestial Lions are looking pretty sweet so far. I've got to weigh up whether or not to clip shoulders from the Primaris so I can do what you've done here and add in chapter pads.. I think I'll probably end up doing it. And so I have you to blame.

Az, it was a complete pain in the arse!

However Pop Goes The Monkey does now do a lot of just curved insignia sets that you can put on pads, so no cutting needed!

Thanks to you I spent three hours last night carefully carving the shoulder pads off a bunch of Primaris marines.

It's worth it Az! Out of interest what chapter are you going to run matey?

Also you don't have to worry to much about being clean as obviously the pad will overlay, I clipped the majority then trimmed with a knife for anything too chunky.

These first guys are going to be Minotaurs. I've got the FW shoulder pads, and some aftermarket heads I'm using on both the Bolt Rifle squads, and possibly the Plasma Gun guys - though they will get Scibor pads instead of FW, I'm thinking. Not sure what I'll do to the jump guys, TBH - they don't seem as mod-friendly in terms of shoulders and heads.

Hi all,

This time I have a picture battle report from a 2k Contact Lost Maelstrom game.

My Celestial Lions & Black Templar's face up to an epic Greentide!


I get to select the deployment zone. Opting to cram the orks into a corner and hope that can't all deploy. They just fit in!


The Horde - Roughly 140+ Ork Boyz and Storm Boyz. Not sure I have the weight of fire for this!


The greentide advances




The Storm Boyz are mowed down, but not without mauling the first Intercessor squad down to two members.


Soon advance and charge rolls go very well for the greentide. 5/6's all round. The horde gets closer, taking the Lion's by surprise!


Things are starting to look awfully familiar to the Mannhiem Gap!


The Crusader Squad and Emperuahh's champion disembark to support the wavering frontline.


An overview.


The Emperuahh's champion eye's up the Ork warlord...


But they don't get the charge, and so settle for supporting their brothers in need.


We ended it there as we gave our table up for another few blokes to get some play time.

Needless to say... ouch. 11 Ork VP's to 2 VP's for me.

Your Celestial Lions are looking great, the gold is particularly effective. Well done.

If you can't believe in yourself, believe in me! Believe in the Dakka who believes in you!

Thanks @WarbossDakka,

The gold has been a long process! Batch painting 50+ Prim marines has meant it's not started to pop out yet. Still yet to do a Stormhost edge highlight to bring it together.

Really can't wait to get started on the plasma incinerators for some OSL as well. Oh and the troop type transfers, oh and all the other touch ups!

50+ Primaris? How many sets did you get hold of?

Ah I split two boxes for the Primaris side. Since then few characters and reivers here. Speaking of which:

Hi all;

The board's progress.... Had a few raining days this week in UK so was difficult to get out and use my spray cans!


Sand going down.


Sand Finished... Thinking of covering over the Dragon mural on the right though.


Level View


First Spray Coat

Intention is to use the main path as a thoroughfare, with two large doors opening up in between the rock outcrops.

Then with all my Celestial Lions arranged for battle pouring from the gate, with command on the rock outcrop to the left.

Apollyon the Inquisitor that screwed them over on the world Khattar, will have a small elite Inquisition army at the end of the thoroughfare.

The board itself will be called "Apolloyon is at the gates". Apollyon translated into English means Destruction or Destroyer.

The main thing I'm struggling with at the moment is locating Savannah shrubs or trees to make it as thematic as possible.

Thanks,
