I love ebay sometimes

I managed to get this old furioso dread on ebay resently for a very good price, I think this will be the last full metal one I'll get (I've got one already) as the Ironclad kit is soo easy to convert and I prefer plastics. I'm going to have to do lots of green stuff filling later as all around the the main body are great big holes!


More to come!

Time to expand the collection!

I really want to expand my army to apocolypes scale so I've been slowly been building more stuff. Here are just a few WIP HQ models that I liked. To start this is my Captain of the 4th who was converted from a dark angels captain.

I love librarians as characters but the rules and the way the pdf.codex is written it is very hard to fit one into a standard game. I'm going to do a bit more blend with the highlights on the Librarian as I think it looks to harsh.

The chaplains still need their highlights done but I'm just deciding which grey to use.

This is my veteran sergeant for the honour guard to go with the captain, the rest of the honour guard will follow shortly.

I've also built a tactical squad and rhino and will have more death company painted shortly.

Must have unit?

This is my collaborative post for FTW on my must have unit/s in my army. I say units because for my Blood Angels army I always have two Baal predators. This is because of the sheer scare factor of two twin-linked assault cannons. Combining this with a 50% chance of getting over-charged engines means Baal preds can take the role of a moving pill box with mass horde killing potentual. They also serves a duel role of being able to knock out light armour when needed and with front armour 13 can soak up a lot fire freeing my other units.

I'm back!

Been away for some time but it is time for the angels to rise again. To start off I'm re-writing my list and making sure it is all painted (pictures to come). Here is my list:

Lemartes 125

Death Company (4) w/jump packs 80

Tactical squad (10) w/powerfist/meltagun/missile launcher 240
Rhino 40

Tactical squad (10) w/power weapon/flamer/missile launcher 225
Rhino 40

Baal predator w/heavy bolters 125
Baal predator w/heavy bolters 125

1000 points

The idea behind this army is speed and fire power, the baal predators lay down heavy fire while the rhinos provided a shield wall for the death company. The tactical squads get within 12" of their target and shoot it to peaces as well as provided a counter charge element. Time to test this list out.

...I guess I'll start here!

Here is my tactical squad sargeant with hopefully a squad painted with him soon, Assault squad 1 wip and assault squad 2 which is almost finished.

First two rhinos have been ordered so more to come soon.
more to come.
