Really cool civilian models, are you doing anything with them? They would work really well in some sort of hangar or workshop diorama, I think.

True Scale Deathwatch Antor Delassio

Heres my last finished mini of 2018.








Really happy with how his face and gems turned out less happy with the writing on the jump pack scrolls and the turbines.

2 of Kill team cassius true scaled and done now to move onto the next in 2019

Thank you all for the kind comments this year, for those of you in the community that have had a crappy 2018 i sincerely hope 2019 is massively better for you.

Thanks

Very cool model. Nice job pulling out all that detail. Love the heat stress on the flamer, the gems, and the gold.

Thanks guys

Started painting my copy of blackstone this is the progress after a week.



Pretty good progress for me in one week especially as I was away for most of the week.

Ur-ghuls and spindle drones almost finished and paint is going down on the others.

Was going to wait to finish painting all the minis before playing



Turns out I couldn’t wait......
First game played with my girlfriend we played the bonus mission from the December white dwarf.
Might make it a thing going forwards that I’ll treat myself to a game if I make a decent bit of painting progress each week.

Enter the Blackstone fortress - Week 2


Calling finished on the Ur-Ghuls



Went with more of a ghoul/vampire look rather than the usual blue/purple look.

Heres my current progress on painting up my copy of Blackstone fortress (sorry about the glare)



Hostiles only


Explorers only



Particularly happy with the face on Janus


Me and the girlfriend also got our second game in (pictures were awful so there wont be ay here), we have gone with the rule that if you suffer a grievous wound you cant heal it in combat but can heal in the recovery phase. (there is a contradiction in the rules around this).

After this adventure both Amallyn and Janus found their Secret Agendas and no one died so good Quest

Lovely ur ghouls. The transition to the redder colour o the claws is nice.

Also the drones look ace.

I tried my first solo mission last night and it's pretty brutal. Only survived because the mission only generated 2 mobs and I ran for the exit like a bunny.

Keen to try it again tonight.

Also on the grevious wounds, I thought the idea was that you were lumped with them until you got back to precipice. That was my ready g at least. I couldn't actually find anything in the Precipice book that says the adventurers get fully healed between expeditions.

Please excuse any spelling errors. I use a tablet frequently and software keyboards are a pain!

Cheers dude

With grevious wounds on pg 14 when talking about grevious wounds it says that they are treated by explorers in the same manner as wound counters but can’t be healed in an encounter. Aside from that any rules that apply to wound counters apply to grevious wound counters.

The only other reference to an encounter is in the healing section where it says about healing a wound in an encounter with a vitality roll.

Because of that I interpret it that you can heal in the recovery phase, until there’s an update to the FAQ it’s just an interpretation tho.

Think the mention of wounds going away is in FAQ and the GW play vids

Nice work on the Ur-ghuls. Quite ghastly. The Rogue Trader is looking properly aristocratic. The eye is super expressive.

Ur-Ghuls are awesome.

In fact all looking awesome. Especially Janus.

For some reason when I saw the drones, I immediately thought of Maelstrom's Edge. They are not exactly the same but really made me look twice.

cheers both, see what you mean by the drones think its the white and purple scheme.

Week 3, not got much painting in this week

Did get a Button from Beasts of war for week 2s progress though (mostly the 5oclock shadow on my WIP Janus) which is pretty cool



But heres the current state of the set.

all


hostiles only


Explorers


also got a cheeky game in on Sunday, me and the girlfriend rolled really badly so the exploration was a slog.

No one died but it was close a couple of times.



UR-025 leaves the meatbags to deal with the spikey meatbags

Hopefully i can get a decent bit of painting in this week but seeing as Resident evil 2 has arrived i think ill be distracted

Not got a lot done last week, Resident Evil 2 and Six Nations rugby have been a big distraction.
Hopefully my order of paint will arrive and I can finish Grekh and UR-025 this week And finish Resi 2 so I’m not so distracted and I can start sharing some hobby love again on here.

Thanks mate, yeah played a few games now solo and with the girlfriend, we both love it and she normally struggles with how complex mini games are.

Taddeus the Purifier finished. Took me a long time to realise he didn’t have a weird nose but his Pope hat had a nose guard.



Pretty happy with him though i think i could have done the white better with a softer shade.






2nd Explorer finished that’s 14/44 done.

Thanks for looking C&C very much appreciated

Traitor guard done

Took a lot longer than i was expecting to get finished, Soo much black to highlight :(



The 14 guard are split into 2 squads Black squad and red squad. (guys with a red stripe on their helmets)




makes it easier to split them up into squads for games (theres 8 in the black squad as thats the most guard that will show up in an encounter)

fur close ups



Think the Grenade boys are my favourites tho i would like to know how to paint a whisky like colour better for their Molotov’s.



with these guys finished that means….




*that was the best version i could find of only the Chorus

28/44 done, I'm going to try holding off on buying Abby and Shadowspear until I've finished Blackstone fortress.

Thanks for looking

That's a nice set of models there. I like the minor variations in color on the fur and uniforms-- that really brings out the individuality of each model.
