Been awhile, Word Bearers, Crimson Slaughter and Renegades

Hi All,

I’ve been fairly inactive over the last bit, but I have been working on things in the background and Id like to share them today.

The first thing I worked on and finished was the Contemptor out of Calth. I did some minor customization to it, adding chains, skulls and the skin parchment to make it look a little less generic and more Word Bearer-like. After I did all the scribbles on him I remembered that Calth had come with some that would have made it easier. Whoops.

He had a name in mind when I wrote it in some semi runic scribbles on the front, but that was back in December / January and I have since forgotten what the name was meant to be. I think in future I would like to do the Helmets completely black, but here I have done a black strip down the centre for something different and rune lord brass sigils with the white scribbles. Looking at the picture here the left leg with the brighter red lines has come out much more brighter than I expected, I don’t know if its the camera or what but its annoying me. I decided on the 40k logo of the Word on the front as I felt it looked much better than the 30k one in its place.

Finished! Albino Word Bearer Bloodletters

Bloodletters04

So here are the first things I worked and finished since the break. Been awhile but it was good to add these guys to the line up. These were done in the same way as the Bloodthirster and turned out pretty good. I think its definately going to turn into a whole army of Albino Khornate daemons. More pictures after the bump.

The White One, The World Drinker, Mal’Grahkor

And on the 8th day, the world bled

                                                          And on the 8th day, the world bled

Take the Eight leaders of the world you have set upon and engrave into them the Symbol of the Lord.

Take Eight of their closest advisers and inscribe them with the scriptures of hate.

Take Eight of their family and brand them with the runes of the gods. 

Form Eight Symbols of Khorne and grant them a tool of freedom. 

Speak unto them; ‘the last one with his skull may go free’, and have them set upon each other. 

When the last eight feel the rush of victory, call for me, and I will come. 

And drown the world in its blood.

-Passage of the World Drinker, Scriptures of Slaughter

The Lab: Draznitch’s Ravagers

DrazRav1

Hi All,

Starting a style of posts which is currently named The Lab. I like list building, from things that may appear competitive, to game breaking things I would ban in a minuet, to the fun and the silly. And Id like to share these. This one being the first also allows me to show off a squad sitting in the painting que that I converted up a bit.

Looking at the picture, Im sure you can see where this is going, so click through and I shall  continue.

March of the Sentinels – Chaos Guard and Others

3 Chaos Sentinels

3 Chaos Sentinels

I love sentinels.

The rules are great, sure they could be better but I really feel like they are a nice price point for what they do. 3 Sentinels with 9 S6 Shots out flanking you can be a terrible thing to deal with, and thats at sub 100 points. 150 points gets you the 3 man Suicide Squad, Armoured Sentinels with Plasma Cannons, risky but fun.

Painting them is great. If you ever wanted a test model for just about anything, to see how the colour works on armor. Sents are great for that. Open Topped for people inside, variations of different armour types, pistons and an expossed engine block, several weapons and various lights, antenna etc etc.

All of these make for a good test bed. Up the top, the lead sentinel was the testbed for my Chaos Knight I built when the Knights first came out – who I will show off later in a more Chaos Guard focused list. The pure white one is my Snow theme ideas and the grey is a more urban based. Finally the blood spattered one is Luna’s testbed for painting Horus Heresy World Eaters.

I’ll do a post dedicated to my Chaos Guard and Knight later, but over the jump to see more pictures of the sentinels!

Finished!: Word Bearers Dark Apostle

wbda1

So I have finally finished(mostly) painting one of my favorite conversions that I have ever done. The Dark Apostle. First time doing some free hand drawing, with the help from a tutorial from another word bearer painter

A few things to note on him; His shoulder guards are not 100% done, on his left one I am unsure of what name to put in there, or even how to do writing on silver. If you know how, please reply! And his right I want to get transfers from Forgeworld to put on there but that will be in the distant future. Lastly I need to dirty up his book a little more. But its finished enough to post some pictures up and Ill revisit him a little later.

Bunch of pictures after the jump … Continue reading

Bit and Kit Bash Conversions: Anti-Ship Cannon and Assassins

plasmaoblit

As you can see from the picture above (If it hasnt randomly selected the Assassins or Dark Apostle WIP because picking a random picture from the post makes sense in reader :S) I may have butchered a limited edition model for my own purposes, but I think the finished product here looks better than the plasma cannon. And I intend to convert the giant plasma cannon into something else. As for the above I’ve had this idea for awhile to create something that looks like its designed to fire into space and bring down capital ships.

There is artwork floating about, I believe in the Astra/IG Codex of a city lined with guns firing up into space and I wanted to create something like that, that looks big and imposing on the table. A good objective for an army to capture and its also going to take part in a campaign that myself and Luna are working on, but more on that another time.  Also its good to probably add read more after the jump thing in right? I dont know, will see how it looks for this post…. Continue reading

Bit and Kit Bash Conversions: Dark Apostle

Hi All,

One thing I really like about this hobby is kit bashing, bit bashing and making completely new looking things out of things lying about. Ive had a bit of a dry spell for awhile now with creating something new and finally got around to making a Dark Apostle.

I dont like the Games Workshop Dark Apostle to be honest. In my opinion its not threatening. I fell DAs should almost stand above Chaos Lords for the work they do and be a much more imposing presence on the battlefield and definitely in terms of model.

I really like the Word Bearers as well and would love to do them for Horus Heresy at some point, especially with Lunas wanting to do some pre heresy colours World Eaters. While looking for colour schemes I saw an army of Word Bearers by a guy on DakkaDakka, looking through it he had built his scratch built Dark Apostle. Its an amazing model and you should go and look at it and his army.

With the Blood Thirster there was a really good bit in there that was something I had been looking for to create my own Dark Apostle:

Have you heard about the primordial truth?

40k Battle Dark Angels Ravenwing vs Khorne Daemonkin

Khorne Daemonkin Warlord

Khorne Daemonkin Warlord

Here it is, first battle report and a bit of a foreword. This is the first battle report Ive done and I wasnt sure how to write it up. I may do the next one in a more standard detail oreinated one thats a bit more telling of the dice rolls in future. Also, terrible camera because its a phone. And lastly we have proxied some models as I was yet to decide on if this is the way I would be going with my Chaos force.

Also we’ve both been sick over easter, theres probably some spelling mistakes, terrible grammar etc. I will review it when Im feeling better and hope to fix it up.


Luna : I would be curious to see how well the Ravenwing will hold up against the assauting squads, given Hammer of Wrath hits and Hit and Run. I inted to be aggressive to see how well I can goad his units out. And use the drop pod as a blocker, then bring out the outflanking units from reserves. I am not confident about winning but I should be able to bloody him and test out a better strategy for next time. Small table is definitely a weakness here though.

Sammael needs a more sturdier blade.

Arkh: Here we go, Daemonkin. Im going to go in a line of units, not caring about objectives. I have the blade of endless bloodshed and I want to try to get enough kills to see how easy it is to get blood tithe points. The BloodCrushers I hope will distract and hold up the bike units, I have the advantage of a small table. I think it should go okay for me. Even if I get horribly murdered it should me amusing.

Blood host detachment: Generate an extra Blood Tithe Point each turn.
