2850pts Sons of Horus done and ready to rumble

We've got a 2500pt 30k event here in Perth, Wasteland Australia, tomorrow, a couple of these bodies are sitting it out to come back down to the points but I'm really pleased to see it all together on the table, done at last!

I had to paint up 3 more Justaerin (powerfists on the left), so the two with twin lightning claws could sit out (terrible load out), not a big grind after finishing Maloghurst the other day but it did take me a while to get through them. I also painted 10 of the FW meltabombs (the good small ones), magnetised them and attached them to the Veteran Tacticals so I'm full WYSIWYG and DTF.

Sons of Horus Justaerin

2841pts of Sons of Horus, picked up a bit of blue sky light on the rhs of the photo so the javelins look like a different colour.
I'm taking my camera tomorrow and hope to be able to get some cool battle shots against the other painted armies in our local scene but being immersed in the game and having a good time is a bit more important to me than posing shit up for pics so we'll see how it goes.

Otherwise, bit of a hobby break after this so the blog might go quiet for a month or something, maybe until Christmas, but we'll see. I've got 10 Tartarus from Prospero that I really want to paint up, a Warhound Titan begging to be built and painted but I was struggling just to paint 3 guys at the end there so I know I need some time off.

Oh and blood bowl! I think I'm getting it from the girlfriend for Christmas.

Ta loves,
Jackie

You magnetised melta bombs?! How tiny are they?

Force looking good.

Awesome looking force! :D

I love my double lightning claw Justaerin! They really mess up standard marines! Hit on 3s wound on 3s (on the charge) with re-rolls, means lots dead and no saves!

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 …
