You simply must have a 2nd Ed marine to hand. I refuse to believe anyone doesn't. The number I have 'found' in ziplock bags or boxes for some project long-since forgotten is beyond belief at this stage

Thanks for sharing

Well I'm not actually old enough to have any 2nd ED models........... Yeah, ok, I can't even pretend to be THAT young. I ditched all of my old 2nd ED stuff in a moment of stupidity as a young adolescent when the 'new' plastic Marines came out in '98. Holy crap, that was 23 years ago and I STILL think they're the new style of Marines.

Thanks for the donation OSJC, I've built him but he's yet to be painted as I've had other things on the go............. speaking of which!!

I built my second Warlord for the White Titans.I wanted a bit more of a dynamic action pose......... however, once again I messed up at the hip joint so instead of charging forward he's more plodding slowly towards the enemy. Which has it's own charm I think. I still like the pose as it has a feel of 'weight' about it. I also chopped off each of his toes on his right foot to reposition them.







Also!! KNIGHTS!!!!

I needed a little 'add on' to my yellow/Red Titans as they weren't quite 1500pts as a force yet.... yet. I will do another Reaver. I'll probably end up doing some more of these Knights as well. I'd love to do some Armigers for them and recreate my 40k Knight army

Does anyone happen to know if there are any rules for Knght Crusaders and/or Knight Gallants?

Love the cacti! Unfortunately I don't think they've added Armigers yet. I don't know if Armigers can even touch a Titan!

Cute little dinky knights. And love the RT-esque basing of the Cacti! Is this your retro penance for getting rid of your 2nd Ed marines back in the day?

Thanks for sharing

The plan was to put two tiny Armigers on a 40mm base and count them as a single Knight for the time being. I doubt GW will go smaller than a Questoris though as the game is meant to be about massive Titans Blowing seven shades of ...... out of each other. Not little tiny Warmachines.

Not much of an update. I've done some new weapons for the Warlord and a bit of scenery.





Because NO ONE WILL EVER SEE THIS!! I've taken a picture to show off the detail........... because no one will ever see it in games. I'll know it's there. Which is enough.... I think?





I got my hands on that 2nd ED Marine and a kindly donation of some 3d printed marines. Some old bases, some plasticard and Boom! A quick and easy chapel.

I've not had much chance to do any hobby of late but I managed to get some bits done over the Easter weekend (now I'm back to work for seven eleven hour shifts on the bounce!).

I've built 3 Reavers, 2 for the white Lego and 1 for the Yellow Legio. This wee chappy is the 3rd Reaver for the Yellow boys!! I cobbled some Carapace Mega Bolters out of some spare Warlord ones I had kicking about. I kinda like them........ kinda.




I also managed to get some knights finished. These are all ebay rescue jobs so I'm not claiming responsibility for the non centred barrels lol. They're just gaming models so I'm not that fussed about them.




I'd like to get these boys some Armigers and expand them into a 1000 point force. But that's a ways off yet as I want to get my next White Legio maniple done first.

Pretty spectacular for eBay recurs, the wonky barrels are pretty hard to spot under the paint scheme

The wonders of Methylated spirit It confuses me that someone went to the effort to drill put the barrels on the Avenger Gatling Cannon and then not take the care to make them central lol. OH well, at that scale, no one will see them...... unless of course I post them online so everyone can see them.
