SoH - 1800pt Army Progress Shot.

~1800pts of Sons of Horus - Yew!

I did a bit of a consolidation of bits and kits and worked out I have about 6000pts for the Sons of Horus available including a Lucius Warhound. I'm getting through it pretty quickly now but also trying to build some components for a gaming table at the same time which is kinda holding me up a little bit.

I'm currently working on Abaddon with some extra arms to use him as a generic Praetor, 3 more Justaerin and a Spartan so I can run a little 1st Company Deathstar.

After that will come the 3 gun Quad Mortar team, a Legion Rhino with a pintle MM for the Vets and a pair of Javelins with CML's and pintle MM's.

After that again will be the pair of Vindicator Laser Destroyers and at that point I might treat myself and do up the Warhound and enter the titan club.

Some pics of the SoH-ifying of the Spartan:




Thanks as always for checking out my work, I appreciate the compliments and feedback you dudes have been giving me on the army and my hobby stuff.

As I've said before DV, they're massively inspired by your boys!

Thanks dude,

That is a lot of work. Like the spartan. Are the spikes/pyramids bought or home made? And I am very curious of what you will do to the titan. What legion will it be?

Lovely! The pyramid spikes totally sell the Cthonian vibe - really looking forward to seeing it painted up!

Agis: Home made homie, I cut down 2.5x2.5mm rod to a point, then slice it off. I'm not sure what to do with the Titan, I was wondering whether to do it up in SoH colours, a Warhound for the Warmaster or to do one of the traitor titan legions. What do you think?

Mordian: Thanks dude, I'm trying to theme everything up so it looks unified with the specialist troops.

Acastus Knight Porphyrion COMPLETED!!!!!

Acacstus Knight Porhpyrion, easily the biggest and most complex kit build and paint job I have ever done for a gaming miniature. I'm really happy with the result but the 60 hrs I spent on getting it finished kinda baked my noodle. I have no idea how the titan painters get through it! Anyway here are some studio shots, let me know what you think!













Horus Heresy Event Pics - Skulls October 2018

Hey my dudes,

I played at our bi-anually held 'Skulls' Heresy event on the weekend, I didn't get a whole heap of pictures as I always seemed to go full time in my games while we rolled dice and had a good fun bit of banter. It was the most low key iteration of this event I've been to so far, players were largely allowed to choose their game style, points level and table theme and just get after it each round.


I ended up playing a great 1500pt opening game against one of the young bloods, Pat. He was running Iron Hands and the scenario basically had my forces ambushed and deployed in a random fashion with a D6 sending them to one of six 24" squares. I managed to intercept a few things at the right time to give me some breathing room but I had a really hard time hurting his troops and walkers with the -1 to the shooting strength of my weapons. I ended up running away with the victory though in the end, having so many troops who were able to capture the objectives on…

Gaslands Tabletop Game - Hot Wheels Conversion 1 WIP

Hey Dudes,
Gaslands, a post-apocalyptic car combat miniatures game where you take Hot Wheels, or Matchbox 1/64 scale toy cars and convert/paint them up for the theme. I heard about it on the Secret Cabal Gaming Podcast and checked out a bit of the action on Instagram and was really blown away by the concept and the review the boys gave the game. I bought the rules and had a read through and I loved the template style movement, the gear sections which are like phases for each round are a really cool system and the combat seems good. 
I got this monster truck and maybe 10 cars, I didn't want to go too hardcore on the guns and shit just yet, I also figure a monster truck should probably be about ripping around running shit down and doing jumps so I've gone with extra armour and maybe a few hidden upgrades like nitrous. I'll paint two teams up and get a battlefield terrain setup done so I can try and convince my mates to get into it and see where it goes.
As the Secret Cabal …
