I've finished the other three Minotaurs:







Decorated them with chains, camo-netting and random vehicle bits.
I really want to add stormbolters, but there's no surface that will take them and not look silly.
A pintle near the top hatch would be the best place, but I can't seem to get them attached properly.
Ideally I'd like to magnetize them so that they can be removed.

I really liked the model and there's also an STL for a truck.
Printed and painted one of those to use in missions or as scenery.


I really like the model and I'll deffo print some more of them in the future.

I took the stormtroopers on a mission against a 2k force of blood angels and they performed ok enough.
I did notice that my Valkyries didn't do much good as gunships, so I'm building something that flies and carries twin punisher cannons....

The Minotaurs are cool little wagons that painted up well. That truck is super cool, it’ll make for a great objective to recover whatever’s underneath the camo net!

Thanks guys.

I've also finished the (printed) vulture.
Not really sold on the cockpit, but I still suck at painting glass.

I've finished vulture number two:



Very happy with this one. I've painted the cockpit struts(?) black on this one to better contrast the blue glass.
Was so much better that I also redid the previous vulture in the same way.

Next up is either these guys:


Depending on their delivery time that is.

Or a variant of this monster for the traitor guard:

I'll start printing the Broadsword (that'll likely take more than a week anyway).

And in a surprise move I painted one of my new Catachan sentinels today:



These guys were some of the last models to be printed on my old (and cursed) printer, so they're pretty rife with print-lines.
Still quite happy with the end result.

The traitor Superheavy is coming along nicely....

So let's consult the Khorne checklist:

Big? Check!
Red? Not yet...
Big gun? Check!
More guns? Check!
More big guns? Check!
Chains? Check, but kinda a Slaanesh thing too.
Barbed wire? Not yet...
Skulls? Coming soon.
Blood? BLOOD? Sure thing!

The main barrel is interchangable with a longer one I also have printed.
The sides with the sub-turrets can be replaced (magnetized) with other sides with either 1 or 0 turret slots.


I did kinda screw it up with the chain at the front though.

The top part can slide off and be replaced with the 'Shadowsword' top.
Not anymore though with that chain in the way.

I considered removing the chain, but then it hit me...
Why not just print another chassis so that you have two big tanks.
I consulted Khorne and guess what? He approved!

Looking good! Is the Vulture chaos too? It looks sort of tame.

Nope, the Vulture is very much loyal. Kinda tempting to make a chaos one though. Would make for some nice conversion potential. Check back in the future it might just happen

Not just a Mathilda.

With some minor alterations it can transform into a superheavy SU-122.



This is with the 'single sponson' sides.
I've also got a set of 'no sponsons' sides in the oven.

Looks like I've got some painting to do

Allright then. The Baneblade variant is allmost finished.

Once again this is a design by the talented designer NFEYMA over on cults3d, make sure you check out his stuff if you like to print 40k models.





I'm quite happy with how it turned out. There's still some chaos tidbits coming, but that's in the future.
This one has the two sponsons sides and I've armed it with all heavy bolters.

Here's some more photo's comparing it with the Macharius and a standard Leman Russ...

It does yeah. I have three different barrels for it. I'll try to get the TD parts painted next weekend and post some images of that configuration.
A club buddy has made a nice sacrificed guardsman that'll fit nicely to one of the sides.
I'll get that one strung up as well.

Those super heavies are super cool! Have you upgraded to a resin printer or just got a new fdm super dialled in?

It's indeed a new FDM printer (Ender 3 S1) and it is a fantastic printer. What also helps is that the model is really really good.

Like I said a club buddy put together a sacrificed guardsman that ended up on the side of the tank:





I've allmost got all the parts painted now. This configuration is the 'Shadowsword' type with the 0-sponsons sides.
This one is fitted with the large laser cannon, but I've also got the heavy siege mortar weapon painted.



Still to go are some heavy flamer turrets, the 1-sponson sides and a big fat cannon.

Bloomin awesome armour efforts, chief, they go really nicely with your other traitors.

Thanks!

I'm doing some minor detailing now and I'll try to post a shot of the full army soon.

They'll be attending a tournament at the end of the month, so I'm busy finishing things up.
I hope they'll allow me to use some of the more outlandish proxies (like the demonic walker tanks)...

I'm currently working on two astropaths to keep the superheavy alive a little longer on the battlefield.
Khorne disapproves of psykers, but I do think he loves demons, so the astropaths will take the form of minor demons.
I hope he'll allow it...

Here's a sneak peak of the two tank commanders I've added:


Any tank commander worth his salt carries a sword into battle!


And a nice hot cup of recaf of course...

Gonna be a bit hard to get that recaff down in their moon suits

Yeah, you're right...

Maybe it's engine oil, or some sort of unholy lubricant?

Blood for the blood god?

Perhaps someone inside the tank simply had to go and this unlucky bloke has the job of tossing it out?

He is a super heavy tank commander, probably has an integrated recaff straw in his suit

I've built the two astropaths to cast psychic barrier and nightshroud on the Shadowsword.

I'm not sure about them yet.





Aside from the missed moldlines on the horns of the guy on the left I'm not really sure they fit the aesthetics of the rest of the army.

I suppose I could go for the official 'That Evil One' sorceres that go with the range:



Feedback is welcome.

They work just fine, but the rendered ones look like a better fit.

I dunno, Psykers should stand apart from the rest of the army. They are special after all. To me the official guys would blend in unless you gave them glowy glyphs and helmet openings or casting hands? Also, frigging mould lines! I always spot at least one when I finish a mini!

I have a club championship tournament coming up and I've decided to honour Khorne and bring the traitors, Shadowsword included....

The first testdrive went pretty well as I ended up facing a guy with Imperial Knights. The Shadowsword is supposed to be a Titan-killer and let me assure you, it is.

Since I'll be unlikeliy to score many points against other opponents I figured I should go for the cool-factor.

So, I've been busy making display-stands for the infantry:




I've got another fwo printed, waiting for paint and there's a final one in the print que.

With the new codex incoming there's some rumours dropping.
One of these is the dreaded 'only one type of special weapon per squad' limitation that GW seems to get all Slaneshy about lately.

The second is a gut feeling that Superheavies are going to be really tasty.

So, I've started printing another Broadsword chassis and asembled some more stormtroopers.
Since I'm flat out of Reiver heads I've orderd some resin heads from Greenstuffworld, I'll show these heads soon.

First though, here's my new guy with Melta-carbine:





The carbine is made using a Palanite enforcer Sniper rifle with a Deathwatch combi-melta part.
I really liked that head, eventhough it doesn't really fit with the reiver heads or the new heads.
Still decided to just use it though.

Edit: Here's a trooper with the new head:


It's not as good as the reiver head.

Browsing wahapedia I came across Gotfret de Montbard.

A close combat character that denies psykers and has a bunch of close combat related bonusses.... sounds kinda....Khorny....

He's still being worked on, but here's a sneak peak:

Loving the display stands, the glowy spiders and blood spills are a good addition. The Gotfret stand in is a good proxy too.

That's a sweet army you've done up, DoctorDanny.

Thanks for pointing me to your paint blog! And you're right, that Broadsword "mini" looks fabulous.

(Also, surprised that you didn't make your KV2 sentinel a Defiler, but I guess you'd have to be CSM for that...)

It never ends well
