Gotta love a good army shot, especially when it’s amongst terrain! Some serious heresy you’re putting together here, loving the Ambots out front!

Where’s the terrain from?

Thanks for the nice replies!

The terrain is the Eternal Cathedral set from Archon Studios. I have a small thread on it in the MP showcase thread of the forums:

So I'm currently doing some other projects, like Stargrave models and more terrain.

Still, I did manage to get the final Wolverine Tank built and painted.
I wanted to turn it into a demolisher, but I couldn't really find a barrel that fit the tank without looking silly.

Here's the finished tank:


It's fitted with a battlecannon, hull mounted heavy bolter and a co-axial heavy stubber.
There's a hunter killer mounted to the side of the turret.

There's some barbed wire around the turret to discourage enemy infantry from hitching a ride.

I've still got some infantry to paint up, but I'm in no hurry.

The barbed wire on the turret looks very chaos-y, I approve!

Since I had some time on my hands and since people here really liked the first one I figured I could make another of the demonic tank monsters.

I set about printing the basic parts and gave some thoughts on its loadout.
I allready had one with a demolisher and I have another demolisher Leman Russ in the army, so another main weapon was needed.

The latest 40k balance update has given the guard autowound on sixes.
This applies to Khornate guardsmen as well it seems, so something with a lot of shots looked like a good plan.

I printed a Punisher barrel and a side-serving of heavy bolters.

The punisher originally turned out too long, so I truncated it and stuck in into the oval demolisher slot on the original thing.
It looked a bit off, so I added a chaos-engraved bit I found in one of my boxes.


I bought these dirt cheap ants at the local toystore and was waiting for a nice base to put them on.
This was the one.


No base is complete without a dead guardsman on it.
The ants do need something to feed on right?

The rear of the tank was the underside of the print and somehow it allways turns out looking very bad.
I covered the other one up with some grating and I might still do the same with this one.

Here's the two of them side by side:


I now notice that the new one still needs a red base trim

So, your feedback is welcome!

With the latest balance patch all guard infantry squads now get heavy weapons for free.
Khorne likes free stuff, especially when said free stuff causes more blood to flow.

DoctorDanny only likes free stuff when it's really free, so there's no way in the warp that I'll be buying more heavy weapon boxes, sorry GW.
I did have some old heavy weapon sprues lying around, so I printed a bunch of 60mm bases to fit them on.
There were also quite a lot of unpainted traitors that liked nothing better than to man some heavy weapons.

So, I proudly present the first batch of heavy weapons:



There's another group with two autocannons and another heavy bolter still awaiting painting.

I also finished up all the platoon officers for the army:



I'm quite happy with how they ended up.

I've managed to finish the last three heavy weapon teams as well.



I think that this'll be the last units I'll add to this army until the new guard codex lands.

Well, you know what they say about Khorne...

He doesn't care where the blood comes from.

The corpses make for good scatter terrain or objectives btw. We play mostly narrative lately and this chaos army is the 'npc' antagonist army.

Question: I'm still looking for a suitably chaossy/khornate Basilisk or Manticore to add to the roster. If anyone can point me towards a good STL or commercial proxy model I'd be thankful!

Boom! Leman Russ Commander






Oslo Norway

For the basilisk, the stock one with chaos crew, chains and markings is perfect IMO. Like this:


For the manticore, I like Katyusha style vehicles for renegades, so maybe a conversion of a genestealer vehicle, or an .stl in that style.

I like that suggestion Illumini. The Goliath looks right at home in a chaos army and there's plenty of place on that vehicle to add some crew and either a big cannon or a rocket launcher.

The best part is that I have a spare one hanging around that acts as a Taurox that never gets used Needs some red spray love to fit right in.

I have a Knight battlecannon barrel that looks about the right size. A Leman Russ sponson as a rotation point.... I see something coming together.

To Be Continued, after I finish (grow tired of) the Warhound that is.

We all know that Khorne loves close combat. Swords, Knives, clubs and bare knuckles.
We also know that hand to hand combat isn't what the guard is all about.

After consulting some heretical scriptures it was discovered that Khorne also approves of destruction at range.
So long as it is done with extreme overkill.

Well, it won't get more extreme than this....

The Lupercal Superheavy Vanquisher tank.







It's based on a PLA printed Macharius Vanquisher.
As my printer seems to hate my guts it just couldn't resist completely frakking up the top of the turret after printing the rest of the tank allmost flawlessly.
A blanket of sandbags fixed that nicely though.

I replaced the sponson stubbers with printed heavy bolters and fitted a dreadnought stormbolter on the side of the turret.
To better tie it in with the rest of my heretic armour I added some spikey things and skulls to the front.
Finally I added some chain to complete the traitor image.

I must say that I'm pleased with the result and I'm curious how the thing will perform on the table.

The tank looks really cool, you must have your printer well dialled in as it’s hard to spot it’s a print. The pic of the warhound though is takes the win though, love the choice of focal length, it really adds to the imposing scale!

Thanks guys. Printing this bad boy was a torment the first time around as my printer went through one of its 'machine uprising' phases. The one in this thread was the second one I printed and this one went very smoothly thanks in no small part to the excellent stl files.

I'm curious what the new codex will bring to the guard. I have a feeling that we'll be seeing traitor specific things for the guard, so this army will possibly get some more expansions later this year.

In the meantime I've been getting my ass handed to me in the competitive scene playing Guard.
No surprises there, but I really hate losing.
Last tournament I played grey knights instead, but I'm a guardsman at heart, so I've been looking at the best list to ... well, not win, but basically not lose everything.

I'm banking on Hammer of the Emperor with high AP and settled on a Lambdan Lions stormtrooper force.
Ordered a bunch of second hand scions to fill out my troops.
I've got plenty of Valkyries, so I'm all good on that front.

Didn't have any tauroxes though and the Taurox prime seems like a good firepower platform.
Problems are that: 1) GW is getting as little of my money as I can get away with and 2) the taurox is a very ugly model.

I did manage to find a great STL, the minotaur IFV by the excellent modeller NFEYMA on Cults3d.



Right now the gattling gun and the dual volley guns seem like the best choice, but you never know what happens when the new codex drops, so I've decided to magnetize the weapons.


The chassis and hull take forever to print and don't look like much when they're finished.


Here's the weapon options, battle-cannon, gattling-cannon, twin autocannon and twin volleygun.


Fully assembled you get something like this.

I've got the first three (of six) partially painted:


Added some hellguns to the hull to fit them in with the stormtrooper theme.
The wooden beam on the back is from the Archon Studio Wolverine kit.



I still had some chain hanging around so all the Minotaurs have a length of chain attached to them.
I'm going to put some on the front of one as well.



This one is armed with a battlecannon.

There's some AK Interactive camo netting arriving tomorrow and I still have some nice transfers to add to them.
I'll update when I have these added as well.
