Cheers guys,

I'm really not expecting this submission to lead anywhere, but it is better to try and fail that not try at all, and the experience will still be useful to me.

If I am lucky, I'll at least get a little feedback, and even the exercise of producing it will give me something to talk about. I am going up for the Black Library Weekender, and some friends of friends are Black LIbrary authors, so if I get a chance to talk to them properly, it would be good to have something to talk about.

Nice start on the executioners. I see what you mean about his eyes, the basecoated shot earlier the “lens” looked convexed but now it’s painted up it clearly looks like an eye and cheek! Wierd!

So, I've been getting on with the basic of repairing my land speeders, undercoating them and so on, and done some work on my infantry.

I've also been having fun building Thulsa Kane's second and third disciples. (Amon Kull is the first disciple, of course.)

The first is Ivanus Enkomi, with all of his iconography removed and greenstuffed.



The next is a bits-bash. Lots more to do on this. I'll probably attach something fancy to his backpack. That is the primaris chaplain's book in a chaos space marine hand.



Main thing he needs is a Crozius Arcanum. I have some options;



Opinions?

The other option is to bash these two bits together, one wing and the blade;

Creepy helmet on the chaplain, the winged axe gets my vote!

I like the classic look of the double-headed eagle, but a wing-axe sounds pretty cool.

So, I ought to be painting models from my first 750 points for my next game, but instead, I have spent the evening building models I don't need for ages yet...

On the bright side, I can now present the three disciples of Thulsa Kane;

Thoth Khotan, second disciple; Amon Kull, first disciple, Amra Thune, third disciple.



I had a lot of fun building Thoth Khotan this evening. His crozius arcanum is made from a Space Wolf hammer, a random spare part and the arm of a standard bearer. There is a 1mm copper rod running through it all. The book comes from the primaris chaplain. The legs are from the plastic chaplain. His upper-half is sitting on a bike in my Astral Claws army. (Once Warhammer 40k Legends comes out, I'll get those guys finished)



I also finished Amon Kull. I love this guy. He is monstrously large, but I regard him as a freakish NON-primaris;




And finally, because this army has non-GW bits in it, I am going to make some of the parts of the army with alternative heads. The Crusaders do not have their heads or axes glued on, and here are the alternatives for my Lieutenant and Thoth Khotan;

Nice job on the Skeletor-Marines. It’s an interesting project with some nice touches. Ivanus is looking pretty flavorful with the skull wearing the Greek helmet!

Skeletor-Marines! Love it.

The lieutenant will get some more work on him very soon.


Automatically Appended Next Post:
This squad is still not finished, but it is far enough along that I know how it will look once finished. I am pretty happy with it.

The bases have the sandy bits done in the exact same colours as my Eldar bases, so they will also match my home made board.

I need to decide whether to include any yellow or brass on the shoulder pads, as in the Badab books it is normally associated with veteran status, but I think it would be a good contrast.

I've still been working on my Executioners, but haven't really had anything interesting to post, as I've just been building standard models and doing not-very-interesting and incomplete bits of painting.

However, I have added something to my Genestealer Cult. I still need to glue Dr Nostrox together, but I've completed all of the very tricky cutting and assembly.



Dr Nostrox features in my short stories about the Good News Brood as a sinister mover and shaker, upsetting Chosen Ghilabrious and everyone else too. He is a weird and even-creepier-then-normal Biophagus.

Now, he will be featuring centre stage. My arbitrator has let me replace his access to psyker powers with access to the medic skill in order to create him as I want him.

Thanks Cap'n.

I committed another example of Heresy. For a second time now, these are actual pages from an original 80s copy of Slaves to Darkness. It is the second of my two 80s copies, second of three overall and was bought for £10 in a very poor state of repair from a second hand book shop on Wardour Street that no longer exists.

Played three cracking games of Necromunda today. A bunch of us played through the missions in the little White Dwarf booklet. I was using my latest gang with three Aberrants in the starting crew.

The first game was on a little bit of our club ZM board, using my mate Ben's wonderful bar that he just built. We made rules for throwing bottles, bar stools and tables and added them to the scenario. First thing that happened? My aberrant (Murd, in this case) lobs a stool and seriously injures a ganger! I had to roll the craziest sequence of rolls to succeed, and put the guy down!


Later, Murd himself got all tangled up when someone threw a table at him, but I finished victorious.


I forgot photos of my second game, but my Aberrant Glom, showed Murd and Vrag who to make a charge roll after they had failed loads, finally made one in this to catch up with the bent copper and rup him apart with a chainsword. I started the game with a frag grenade and the Present tactics card from White Dwarf, but they both had almost no effect, so I was glad to pull out another win.

In the final game, it was GSC vs GSC. The servitor defending the loot ripped my opposition to pieces and he had terrible dice rolls, but I still only just made it out with another win. The highlight was his Aberrant taking one of mine out, followed by my revenge taking his out.

Sounds like a lot of crazy narrative fun. And if that isn't the point of all that, then really, what is?!

So, I'm still getting on with my Executioners, promise. It is just none of what I am doing seems very interesting, and nothing is complete to justify posting it anyway.

I've also done bits and bobs on my Necromunda, but pics of that will follow.

But, this post is to show off my latest miniature. I'm also now signed up to a new version of Ascension, this time for AoS.

AND, I've decided to do hobby bingo. Pic of my bingo card to follow, but this will tick off my box of "paint a miniature for a faction or army you have no painted models for".

I am leaning towards leaving it 100% ethereal, but still might be persuaded to paint the weapons and chains, and/or put some flowers on the base. Opinions?



This was painted with a 1:3 Nihilakh Oxide to Lahmian Medium mix. Then undiluted Coelia Greenshade in recesses and around edges and fingers, etc...

The tiles are just plastic sheet with them pressed on, cut to shape, that I bought at 4D model shop in East London YEARS ago.
