SoH Praetor Tribune LTD and Prospero Tartarus with Custom work WIP

Aye dudes,

Last post for the year I think, managed to get a shitload done and I'm pretty stoked! I painted about 750pts of Tyranids at the start of the year and just under 3000pts of Sons of Horus with the large portion of that happening after August.

I'll finish the posting off as far as I can see with the WIP's of my Tartarus armoured dick kickers including the LTD edition Tribune model that I managed to snaffle up and squirrel away for when I got some Tarts.

Did the usual spikey thing as I have done with my armour and I think it really sets them up for the legion theme. Got 2 teams of 5 with matching loadouts which I will likely roll into a squad of 10. Did a conversion for the axe on the Praetor using the ball and spike from a Justaerin axe flushed up to the axe blade and power unit from the Chaos Terminator Lord (shaved the skull icon off the blade and shaved the joining bit thinner). I tried just the Justaerin axe head but it looked stupid, was too small. He looks beast now, Barbarian great axe style.

Going to try and match them up to the book art, I forget which number it was in, basically black outer shoulder plates, dark metallic power units and backs of the legs, gold trims and gold helmets. They will look a little like mini versions of my Leviathan (Scroll down the blog to see some pics).

Anyway, cheers for checking in this year, happy holidays and safe travels if you're out there getting after it and I'll be back with these dudes finished in Jan. Off to Africa for a few weeks with the girlfriend then some solo cycle touring when I get back to Australia again.

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 …
