After i took a look at my army, i realised something, they look all with gasmasks and similiar like they would be an infantery force, attacking through gas.

Now I always wanted Earthshaker batteries but kinda always found them rather to expensive for what you get from Fw, now my question is, do some of you know an alternative for such pieces of artillery?

Basically any 1:35 scale Howitzer, I'd have thought.

https://www.google.ca/search?q=1+35+scale+howitzer&rlz=1C1AVFC_enCA771CA771&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiqiuzI8d7eAhVPMt8KHfDjCcsQsAR6BAgEEAE&biw=1366&bih=664

Or there's a tutorial to make an Earthshaker Carriage and a Chimera from the Basilisk somewhere around the interwebs.

How about



The 15 cm Schwere Feldhaubitze 18 or sFH 18 (German: "heavy field howitzer, model 18") was the basic German division-level heavy howitzer during the Second World War.


http://www.modelersite.com/en/1875/building-the-sfh-18-howitzer-dragon-6392-1-35-scale

They're $7 USD each. EDIT - Nope, that's to buy a PDF file. DO NOT CLICK ADD TO CART.

They're $32 USD inc. shipping on ebay.

Hmm, they seem slightly to small for a Earthshaker, but a heavy mortar they could very well be.
That or a thudd gun.
I think i will consider them.

"The worst was the constant movement of the enemy, the lack of frontlines. It made us sick, we felt like we had nowhere to hide, nowhere to fallback to. That and the constant use of gas and smokescreens, our gunners could not make out their tanks and we could not make out their units until they were right on top of us. And let me tell you, they were like maniacs, swinging daggers, bajonetts and rifles like clubs. Stabbing, cutting and bludgeoning people left right and center whilest throwing greanades, molotovs and smoke canisters everywhere." Riflemen Jennick, 3rd Fenyian Regiment.

So today i thought, he let's paint some stuff, guess what, spray is out after the first squad is halfdone..... Thankfully i use a double priming of sorts, first black then grey and i got some work in, also started on the flag.







And i also made some more details on my Feldjäger squads, still missing some marks and other improvements and fixed some minor faults and am also begging to mark my Panzerfüsiliere.

So, i had a rather big enlightenment moment, and remembered that in my bitzbox there must be the leftover gun of the basilisk, which i bought for cheap since it was destroyed.
Now i always wanted a piece of fieldartilery also hidden and preferably reeinforced.

So this is it, for now it is not fixed toghether, i still will try to make it turnable and ofcourse there will be some filler for the sides of the gun.



Also i said hidden and i might found a perfect solution for that.
See i own a bit of mosquito mesh which might do the trick for a bit of cammo netting, now i just need someway to cut it accurately.



Also for those wondering why there are two ectoplasma cannons, I may try to make a stalk tank: out of 2 Sentinels that will be run as the plasma Leman Russ, and or i will massacre an amiriger set and built it out of one of them.

That's nice WIP. How does an artillery emplacement work with a mechanized force, though?

If Swiss screens are anything like Canadian screens then you should be able to cut that stuff with a regular pair of scissors or stanley knife.

Nope, can't do it with scissors, heck even my trusty army knive capitulates.

Btw, i never said the mechanized would not know how to dig in, also there still is the other "cannonfodder" part of my army.
Maybee i just make a piece of terrain out of it.

Really, eh? I guess Swiss mosquitoes are made of sterner stuff.

I don't mean to dissuade you from making it an artillery piece, it's clearly an Earthshaker so it's entirely legitimate to run it as one.

I just wondered about the 'head-canon' behind it, 'cause I obsess so much over these kind of silly little details in my own force.

I'd blame the quality as too high

Well since i anyways need to fix my table i might make it dual use, as a Mission target aswell as for my defense force PDF part of my army which also gets the task of holding ground.

So win win.
Will probably give them a officer from the 31. And some random crew man from my allready existing army.

"Reorganisation of the AMU and other Paramilitary Units of the Abhorrent aswell as common regulations.


In order to maintain discipline aswell as fighting capability the following order will be released to the people of the Abhorrent:

1. The following Organisations are now prohibited to Operate: The ecclesiarchy, Cults of the following Gods: Slaanesh, Tzeentch and Nurgle. All this cults were found to be disruptive for the society on the Abhorrent, membership is punishable by death via sacrifice to the Entity known as "Legion".

2. The AMU (Abhorrent Miners Union) aswell as the WUA (Workers Union of the Abhorrent) are to reorganise their paramilitary groups and equipment into the "Abhorrent Freischärler" or AF

3. The combined ressources of the AMU aswell as the WUA are headed by the "Dreiergremium", which consists of Gregor "Einarm" Steiner from the WUA, Grent Dollarhyde from the AMU and Heretek Magos Insidolfus "the big"



4. The competency of the "Dreiergremium" is the managment of ressources, the production of necessary goods for the war effort aswell as the maintaining of order. Additionally the General calls upon the "Dreiergremium" in order to plan the further action on our crusade against the corrupt Imperium.

5. The AF is allowed to conscript any able bodied citizen of the Abhorrent or any aligned world. If persons are not willing to join, they are Sacrificed to the Entity known as "Legion"

6. The AF is organised in Freischärlerzüge: Each of these consists off the following
- "Achter Gremium" The upper comand responsible for organising aswell as training it's Zug



- 4 Squads of Freischärler of which two atleast compromise of Point Defense Squads or PDS consiting off: 1 Schädler, 1 Heavy MG Team, and 7 Freischärler



- The two other are Mainline squads or MS consiting off: 1 Schädler, 1 Grenadier, 8 Freischärler



-Additonally: Freischärler that survived 2 engagements and are still able bodied and fit, maybee promoted into Schocktruppen which consist off: 1 Schädler, 2 Flammenwerfer, 7 Schocktruppen



- Freischaren may elect a Veteran member of their Squad to a Schädler.

- The duty of a Schädler are as follows: Firstly, Maintenace, training and commanding as a NCO on the field, aswell as policing the Abhorrent to defend it's Citizens from attacks on the integrity of the society.

- A Freischarenzug therefore consists of the following: "Achter Gremium", Schocktrupp, 4 Freischarentrupps aswell as further auxilia deemed necessary by the "Dreiergremium"



- The AF is responsible to consolidate ground, build structures and extract ressources on occupied plantes. It also has to maintain the Garnison in the recently conquered system "Diametres 1"

- The "Dreiergremium" is responsible for expanding our base in the system of "Diametres 1"

- Schädler, aswell as Stosstruppen may be promoted to a Rank within the 31. Mechanized. Upon elevation a Schädler will continue to perform his duties to defend the society from internal threats. Schädler that are in the ranks of the 31. are not required to train the Freischärler.

May Khorne be pleased with our Vendetta."

General Meinel,


So as you can see, i picked up what i had left from my old main army, unified it and made my secondary defense force into a structurized, somewhat fluffy, defense army that i can further expand, as i see fit.

I also plan on finishing painting these units. They are there mostly to provide some CP and generally be cannonfodder for my more elite section, aswell as the defenders of Diametres 1 which is a table project i am working on
(No Excommunicatus, there will be no pictures as of yet of said table) .

As for Auxilia planned for this particular Freischarenzug, either more stubber teams, because who doesn't like Heavy stubbers. Mortar squads. Pioneer squads and maybee soonish some rather peculiar projects run as sentinels but called stalk tanks, thanks to good old "Insidolfus"

Unless I'm doing something really dumb 'cause it's early and I've only had one coffee and/or I'm dumb, a Chimera (60) with Autocannon (10), Heavy Bolter (8) and Heavy Stubber (2) is 80pts (60+10+8+2).

Since the CA pages are posted here I guess we're ok with posting points values, right?

You seem pretty light on AT in general, maybe beef up the costs by slapping some Lascannons on the Leman Russ? You've also got 5CP. Granted, you've nothing really to spend them on, but... you could add a Khorne Daemon Battalion for 550pts...

EDIT - My 2K R&H list lost... *drumroll* 38pts. Mostly 'cause of changes to Sentinels.

EDIT 2 - Never mind, I am dumb.

Nope you are correct on the chimera, however remove the specific points on it's weapons.

As for why no at here, well this is really just for ad hoc.

So this is a Update:

First off, now not only do i lack a Black spray, i now also lack brushes..........
Secondly, i am however mostly finished with my AF , cannonfodder department for my army.
Thirdly: I also found the perfect sized box. Yes the perfect sized box, don't question my sanity, i never got handed one.The box will end up as a Pillbox/ Bunker, after i am done with it.


First off: I am working on Insidolfus, since A: Warpsmiths got alot cheaper and B: I might or might not have gone a tad insane and plan on some verry random Kitbashing for Hellverins.



He still misses mostly detail work.

Now the Militia Itself:

The first MG squad, some smaller detail work still missing, but since i now lack detail brushes....


Same here. Still quite content with the equipment, probably will give the enforcer/Schädler a once over for scratches in his carpace armour.



I also forgot about the fact that Cultists, especially on their backside are rather blocky pieces of plastic and not particulary detailed if you don't look at them from the front.

Once again, i wonder why GW did not release a proper cultist box.


Oh and i gave good old One hand a once over.

Now, it will probably take me some time to get back into the flow, probably will build somemore, and especially paint more after my new detail brushes arrived, especailly the FW Renegades flag seems a bit empty.

Anyways, have some nice festive days.

I need some coffee now......

Well, i suppose,it will do, so Khorne will.
But considering it even worked for the Grey Knights in that one horrible piece of fluff, it just has to.

Wondering Why the Emperor Left




Boston, MA

Love the armigers, dude. I may need to steal that conversion idea for my army.

It is true that nothing desirable is given to us for free. The only thing we can be certain about is a mundane, repetitive, and thoughtless existence. Improving our lives takes dedication and hard work, as our dreams won't simply become reality. Those who give up trying to better themselves get stuck in a state of hopelessness with no aspirations or goals. They live only in the depressing present. They blend into the crowd of people stuck in the same place and their lives slowly drain their hopes and desires. Seeing people in this situation is disheartening, but no situation is absolutely hopeless. Any situation can be changed if there is a will to change it.
