Upgrade Complete

Hello there!

Been quite slow on the wargaming front recently so I've not made much progress.
I have however been tinkering and have updated Praxiteles, my loyalist Techmarine

The new Servo-arm is a non-GW part I got from Poland and I think it looks awesome. I was always slightly annoyed with the old arm (which was a Missile Launcher) loader and it just looked to wimpy for a Techmarine.

That's all for now, see you next time

More Loyalists

Greeting All,

Switching fire from the breakers this time with an update on the loyalist blades,

Todays offering is the Champion, Apothecary Dexter Nutrcius and a Sergeant with a Combi-Plasma

Apothecary Dexter Nutrcius is the last surviving Loyalist apothecary and serves with Xavier's Command Squad

The Model is from Forgeworld and I think looks amazing, with plenty of detail and a nice stance.

One of the reasons for having a single loyalist apothecary is to give a sort of false hope to the Loyalists, to hint at the slimmest of chances of rebuilding their Chapter when in reality they are all but doomed.

The Champion is another member of Xavier's Command Squad

I've equipped him with a boarding shield and a blade of fire. He hasn't got a name yet, and for now I think I'm going to keep it that way, I'll have to think of a fluffy reason why though

and lastly the new Sergeant equipped with a Combi-Plasma

I've decided to build a few new sergeants that are equipped with combi-weapons to give squads a little more fire-power, I've recently ordered some more parts to get a few more done so watch this space...

That's all for this time - see you later

Squad Quirinus

Hello all,

Slight delay on the post due to a snafu with my internet, but better late than never, as they say....

This week has been I have been finished a new squad for the Breakers - Squad Quirinus

There are still more of this squad to paint up but now I have a useable squad that'll give the Breakers a solid fighting core to rally around

That's all for now

Re-enforcements at the Breaker Front

Hello again!

Ill get straight down to business today with the newest unit to bolster the Breaker cause

Corpse-Taker Pantheras and his retinue of servitors

Corpse-Taker Pantheras has been deployed to assist the Breaker Insurgency due to the high number of Space Marines deployed in that sector. Pantheras relishes the opportunity to gather gene-seed for the Traitor Blades of Fire nefarious purposes. While some of the Breakers are grateful for the reinforcement, Sergeant Quirinus see his arrival as a threat to his authority, and deals with the Corpse-Taker with thinly veiled resentment.


The model is the Mk II Apothecary from Forgeworld,  I decided to get him to annoy Ollie and Kieran (Both of whom have Space Marines armies in our current campaign), Fluff wise, I'll be pointing out  all the Gene-seed he'll have taken from their Chapters throughout the campaign. The main reason, however, is because I wanted the other Apothecary model in the pack and it was a shame to waste him, and so here he is.


The Servitors represent the Chapters serfs that were either corrupted or were captured, and transformed into cybernetic thralls, they have just enough mental capacity to understand and carry out basic instruction, and carry out orders with an unrelenting, albeit slow, resolve.

The Models are Tech-thralls, again from Forgeworld.

Well, that's all for now, see you next week with some more

Back once again

Hello again! Its been a while...

This one and 98 others...

With a busy schedule at work I haven't been doing much wargaming except for a couple of games here and there, but now things at work have settled down I'm getting back into it.

However a  problem has emerged - at the weekends I find myself rather lethargic after working all week and find that my modelling suffers, during the week I find I don't 'switch off' in the evenings and sometimes find myself at a loss for something to do...

The solution was simple...

My new modelling desk
That's right, I've moved my Modelling Station from home to work! I am a Genius! This means I'll be able to make a dent in the many projects that have started to build up
The Next Steps
I've not been at a full stop on the modelling front, occasionally building and undercoating bits and pieces and buying or organising parts, but all that's left me is a load of unfinished projects!
"So, what are these projects?" I hear you cry. Well pull up a sandbag and get your notepads out...
               Paint 13 more Traitor Blades
               Build 30+ Civilian Squad (Catachan Squads)
               Build Civilian Heavy Weapon Team (Catachan Heavy Weapons Team) 
               Paint 3 Civilians (Tallarn Sniper Team)
               Build 'Mining Laser' (Mechanicum Krios Battle Tank)
               Build Watchmen Centaur Assault Carrier
               Paint Corpse Taker
               Build 'Servitors' (Tech-Thralls)
Blades of Fire
               Paint Champion for Command Squad
               Paint Apothecary for Command Squad
               Paint Devestator Squad (Armed with Rotor Cannons)
               Build and Paint Marines from spare parts
Other Projects
               Build more men for my Mordheim Warband, as well as set up spare warbands
               Paint Space Marines for 40k Chess set
               Build and Paint Chaos Space Marines for 40k Chess set
Future Purchases
                A Sicaran Battle Tank
                A Tauros Assault Vehicle or two and maybe a Venator 
                Buy more Tallarns for the Breakers
                Buy a Traitor Predator
As you can see that's quite a lot to do! I'll let you know how it all turns out
