Horus Heresy - Christmas Magik

Image
Hello Everyone!  All of us here at the blog hope you've had a wonderful Xmas with family and friends alike.  Hopefully some of you have been fortunate to receive some plastic and resin wonders.

We thought we would bring you something magical between Christmas and New Year - well psychically attuned at the least.

For a while I've been working on an all terminator armour Imperial Fists army - something I'd like to bring you more of in the New Year.  I've been waiting on some parts to arrive and today they did, so I thought I'd make a start on a new character for my army - a loyal Librarian of the Imperial Fists legion in Cataphractii armour (surprisingly something that doesn't already exist) .

So without further delay here's the kitbash walk through in homage to Nigella Lawson at this seasonal time.

Ingredients:

A Calth Praetor in Cataphractii armour (For Legs and Head mainly) A plastic Cataphractii torso  A plastic Grey Knight terminator torso  Spare Cataphr…

The Great Crusade - Orks of Gorro

Image
Hello again.

I thought I’d put a little progress post together concerning a newer project I’m working on, that being the Techno-orks of Gorro.


As you know I’ve spent the last few years putting together resources for players to use in order to represent the lost human and Xenos races discovered by the expeditionary fleets during the Emperor’s Great Crusade. One of the races I steered clear of (at the time) was orks. I really felt they were too comical for an inclusion into 30k but after their appearance in some of the Horus Heresy novels and a torrent of people asking me to include them in the project, I decided to take the plunge.

Principally I wanted to start a small force within the 1000pt restrictions of the Xenocide 1 event I'm running in March 2020, so I had time to experiment with building as I went. I do enjoy this way of converting - letting things organically grow from an idea or description (within the limits of what bits are readily available). The key factor for me was…

The Sagyar Mazan! GG's Shattered Legions project.

When Malevolence finally dropped I couldn't wait to get my Chorgorian Brotherhood up and running [all puns intended!]  In previous posts you will have seen how my 'wheels and wings' force has terrorised some, and fallen flat on its face against others.

But another great part of the White Scars section in Malevolence was the background of the Legion in their role as pioneers, casting themselves out into the deep void scouting for routes for the following crusade fleets.

The very nature of the legion at their inception was for long range, extended recognisance missions.  The Scars 'pre-Khagan' cognition being the 'Star Hunters' a name quite apt for a legion who would 'hunt' the stars as pathfinders for the compliance fleets.

Of the new units unveiled in Malevolence the Falcons Claws are those which epitomise this role as pathfinders.   A Fast Attack choice for White Scars these pseudo-scouts excel at forward deployment and decapitating the enemy comma…

30K Ruinstorm - Fallen Brothers and the Golden Shield of the Emperor

Hi Everyone! Tylar here to bring you up to date with the weekend's event and what did and didn't happen.

On to the first part. GG and I we're unfortunately unable to attend the weekend's event despite a lot of work going into it at the start. My wife and I suffered a very significant loss recently and despite my best efforts I just wasn't able to attend. This had a massive knock on effect as I was the lynch pin to GG's involvement so as a result neither of us could make it to Ruinstorm.

Sorry to GG, we'll get themnext time.

I want to personally thank Andrew D and guys at GFTW for being amazing and supportive at this time but more importantly understanding. I'm thoroughly looking forwards to the next event and GG and I will be in attendance flying the Unityb4heresy flag along with King Fluff.

King Fluff however stood stalwart and with the might of his Custodes strode forth to do battle in the blog's name.

And boy did he hold his end up!
