Aquilla Strong Point and Vengeance Batteries

Hey dudes, been a bit slammed last week but I managed to get a few pieces done for my table after closing out 2.1k of the Sons. The big silo needs a more work around the base to match the tones of the Mars mat a bit more but I think the Vengeance batteries are pretty well spot on for a match. I've never bothered to do terrain this well before with plaster, sand and rocks on the bases to integrate the model pieces better with the base and make a more irregular surface but I think it's a no-going-back type of thing now.

I also built some Javelin speeders last night and need to paint them, a Maloghurst conversion and a few more Justaerin before a 2500pt 30k event in November. The Javelins were a nightmare to build honestly, I really didn't enjoy the process at all which is a bit of a shame as they are such gorgeous kits when done but I think the FW molds are getting a little worn as some of the detail was filled in, a lot of big mold lines and even some slippage which I haven't really experienced before. 

Around the models required for the 2500pt list I want to take to the tournament in November I aim to finish the other buildings shown for the table, make some hills and create bases for the GW cargo containers.

Lovely,that looks absolutely fabulous. The integration of the base with the scenery relay works and I agree, once you have gone down that road there is no going back. Looking forward to see how it ends.

Great job -as always-, I love the blend where the metal meets the earth.

Good job making it tie into the mat so well, ditto with your troops. A nice solid theme all around. Shame about the speeders though, at least they are done now and ready for paint.

Now stop making me want to SoH! I did some of my BaC as Imperial Fists but SoH are tempting me and I am waiting for the SW stuff to drop to be sure.
Thanks boys!

I reckon SW will be a cracker Rory and the loyalists get better access to toys and allies at the moment so you can make a more diverse army. Do love the SoH but they don't quite have the level of flexibility as the loyalist forces do.

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 …
