Workbench Progress - Primaris Space Wolves Army

Greetings internet, I have now finished painting all of the Primaris models that I bought way back on release day.  I have spent the last month or so since my Intercessors were finished getting my two HQ models finished.

So I now have a Wolf Lord and a Wolf Guard Battle Leader (seen below), both of which are are a bit of a kit-bash. 


The Wolf Lord is made up from a Dark Imperium Lieutenant with the Battle Leader head armed with a Thunderwolf Cav Power Fist. 





The Battle Leader (which you still cant buy) had the weapons swapped to the opposite sides along with the addition of an alternative head and axe. 










Well as it stands right now it's not a functional army as there are no anti tank weapons or flyers or transport vehicles of any kind but I am happy to wait and see what comes out beyond Shadowspear because I don't need any of that rubbish.

I have had some success while using most of this lot along side my Knights and the Loyal 32 but not really against anything top-tier like Eldar.


I will be sticking with my Custodes until the Primaris range has been fleshed out into something that has a chance of working as a mono faction.


Well thats all for now, please check back soon and please include any comments in the comments section down below and hopefully I will be back soon with another update.

Workbench Progress - Space Wolves Intercessors

Hey there, it seemed like these three Packs of Intercessors would never be finished but after a year of interruptions they are now done.  I have three packs of five with a magnetised at the wrist close combat weapon option on the three pack leaders (late arrival Power Fist no included).  No sooner had these models been finished GW went and announced their new box release Shadowspear.  This set seems to include a bunch of Chaos stuff and some new Primaris troop options (if the shoulder icons are to be believed).  These new troops take the form of the Primaris Vanguard Marines along side the Eliminator Snipers and a new Librarian in this lighter Reiver armour type.  There will likely be more Primaris models announced soon along with images of the Vanguard models because right now the two sides seem mismatched in favour of the Chaos force.




Anyway I have finally got my bloody Intercessors painted so please enjoy the pictures below.










Well thats all for now, please check back soon and please include any comments in the comments section down below and hopefully I will be back soon with another update.

Workbench Progress - Captain-General Trajann Valoris

Hey there, I have been able to step up my hobby game in the last month or so which will enable me to get a few posts out over the next month which will be cool. 

In light of the Chapter Approved 2018 providing a 65 point reduction to Trajann Valoris I thought it  was about time I painted him up and finished my Custodes Battalion.  I bought this model on release day but I never felt able to field him due to him costing a ridiculous 250 points, sure he is a powerful unit but 250 points is a big ask in an army that is already tight on points.  I had plans to use the model as a standard Shield Captain but I am very happy I can now use him as himself.

Stats wise this model is basically a Custodes Chapter Master and imo comparatively powerful on the table top as the new Marneus Calgar which makes him a real force multiplier.






I will try to get some images out of the entire 2000 points Custodes Battalion soon but I have almost finished painted my Space Wolves Primaris force so it might get bumped.  I must have about 1300 points of Space Wolves and only a Wolf Lord and a Battle Leader left to paint.

Well thats all for now, please check back soon and please include any comments in the comments section down below and hopefully I will be back soon with another update.

Workbench Progress - Imperial Knights House Raven

Hey there, I am glad to be back with another quick progress update and this time its Imperial Knight themed.  I have been working on two Armigers Warglaives on and off for a while now and they are finally finished and ready to provide much needed support for my older Questoris Pattern Knight.


So it turns out my decision to side with Mars and House Raven has really paid off, there was no way of knowing that my penchant for chevrons would one day yield such returns as Machine Spirit Resurgent and Order of Companions and the ability to run and gun with devastating efficiency.


With its mask removed you can clearly see my Knight's true nature, a warrior god who's true loyalty is to the red planet.


All tooled up for battle these knight look great on the table top as they race around smashing enemy armour and monsters with their Melta weapons and Chain-Blades.


I am using these models along side a Custodes Outrider Detachment and a Cadian Battalion Detachment.


I have made sure that the arms and carapace can still be removed so I can change out the weapons should I feel like getting some of the Armiger Autocannons.



Well thats all for now, please check back soon and include any comments in the comments section down below and hopefully I will be back soon with another update.

Workbench Progress - Custodes

Hey there, the chaos at my place continues to deny me a real hobby space but I have been slowly getting things done and had set my sights on finishing a Custodes Outrider detachment and in doing so complete all of my Custodes models.


I already had 10 Custodes painted from The Burning Of Prospero boxed game and had recently added another 5 mixing in some parts from the newer Wardens kit for some diversity.


With three squads I now have a good base for fielding a Battalion if I paint one more Shield Captain, maybe on foot this time.



I have magnetised all the Lance arms on and made sure to give all the "squad leaders" the same lance posing arm.


I used helmet-less heads for what would have been squad leaders back in the previous editions.





As Outrider detachments go this is one of the fastest and most powerful.




All of the regular Vertus Praetors have the same lance arm type which enables them to hold it straight up right or forwards parallel to the jetbikes.



I have drilled out and green-stuffed the whole where the flight stand goes so I don't have to glue them in and risk them breaking.


The addition of a Primaris Reiver head really made this Shield Captain stand out amongst the rest of his golden brothers.


The Shield Captain has a third lance arm type that nobody else as another way of  making him look a little more unique.



And because everyone says you must have one of these guys I went and painted one up.


Well sadly thats all for now, please check back soon and include any comments in the comments section down below and hopefully I will be back soon with another update.
