Iron Warriors Tactical Squad Harubal

Nearly done, tactical squad Harubal is accompanied by the Warsmith and the Siege Breaker.

They will be part of an orbital assault force and will be getting their own Legion Drop Pod. I added in a Anvilus-pattern backpack just for that extra touch.

The Warsmith is based off Narik Dreygur, with the servo-backpack from the ancient metal Warsmith model from GW proper.

The Siege Breaker is the original 2011 Games Day model from FW and will be leading a squad of breachers into battle.

Work in Progress: Heresy-Era Iron Warriors Legion

Just as the title says. I'm working on my BaC infantry. Since the new BaC set The Burning of Prospero was announced, I've been on a rush to complete the set. Only once I've finished the set for the full 100%, do I allow myself to go ahead and buy the new box. I've already got a large backlog, I don't want it to become even bigger with an influx of 50+ models!

What you see here is tabletop quality. While I do like my troops to look good, I am not a perfectionist when it comes to the rank and file. An army looks as good as the sum of all models is my creed.

It's a Chaos black basecoat with leadbelcher base colour. After that a thorough Nuln Oil wash and again a Leadbelcher highlight. The shoulder trims and copper elements are painted a thin Gehenna's Gold followed by - again - a Nuln Oil wash. The left kneepad will display either the legion or the Grand Company and the left one will see some hazard stripes.

80% finished Legion Sergeant and 2nd Legion Sergeant with just the basecoat

Showcase: Renegade Heavy Mortar teams

Finally, the Heavy Mortars are done. Ever since I started my Renegades & Heretics army, I really wanted to have some field artillery, prefferably the heavy mortars instead of the quad mortars. They simply look awesome. 

The unit consists of 9 soldiers manning three pieces of artillery. I have a Master of Ordinance, a spotter, two loaders and five support soldiers with lasguns.

That said, have a look at how they turned out!

Works In Progress: Renegade Heavy Mortars & Land Raider Proteus

After - sadly, another - 1,5 month hiatus, I decided it was about time I started to get back on track with 40k. This year has seen so much stuff completed. I reckon that I've completed more models and projects the first three months of 2016, than I've completed in 2014 and 2015 combined. This insane rush to complete armies, start a new one and work on two existing armies caused some kind of fallout in my hobby mojo.

Anyway, enough ramblings. On with the new stuff. Below is a Heavy Mortar unit consisting of three mortars and a squad consisting of six men (one pack of Renegade Artillery Crew is being shipped from Notthingham as I write). The last photograph however, is a new toy I've acquired: a Land Raider Proteus. A pal of mine sold it to me for a mere 70 EUR, which is a bargain if you ask me. With shipping the tank costs 122 EUR when ordered from Forge World directly.
The only thing that the Proteus still needs aside of a paintjob are Iron Warriors Land Raider doors from FW, but I'll order those later because..

...I'm saving up for a Chaos Warhound Titan! My estimate is that I'll be ordering it early july. Let's hope that the Pound Sterling to Euro exchange Rate doesn't skyrocket in the mean time!

WIP: Iron Warriors Centurion (30k)

Just a quick pic of an Iron Warriors Centurion Om working on. As you could've guessed. ot's the 2011 Gamesday model. In my opinion one of the best Mk3 marines out there. Still a lot needs to be done obviously, but the general idea is there!

Photos of The Great April Apocalypse

Every couple of months, me and my friends gather for an epic Apocalypse match. 3k points per player, four players per side. With awesome battlefields that are constructed just for this match, the battles always provide for awesome photo's. Though our side brutally lost the match due to OP Eldar (I'm looking at you, Lynx..) shenanigans and one particular Tau player who takes winning just a bit too seriously (parking a Ta'unar in a 6 void shield bubble..), we still had lots of fun.
