New Army! - Necrons

The Dynasties Overlord takes aim with his deadly Tachyon Arrow

Well once again I have been unable to resist the call of a new army. This time its the Necrons!

They Slumber No More...

"...Metal-Skin of the blackest hue, all marching towards us. They are an army of the damned, indeed. Their soulless gazes were fixed on us, unflinching, uncompromising, merciless. Oh, Emperor, save us all..."
—Excerpt from the Last Transmission from the doomed world of Alhantis VI

Heresy Era Alpha Legion update!

I put my 30k Alpha Legion army on hold over Christmas as, well, I didn't really have the time for much hobby sadly. Now that I'm back at University though I've finally got a bit more free time (ironically) to work on painting the army and so I've decided to start on the Cataphractii Terminators that come in the Betrayal at Calth set.

Tau - Urban Defence Force

Hello again, as a follow up to my last post I will now explain my plans for my new army, the Tau. As the title would indicate I have decided to create an Urban Defence Force who, fluff wise, would be deployed into cities as either a defence force or, if necessary, an assault force. My reason behind this decison is simple; I have always liked the aesthetics of the Tua models and the release of the new Codex coupled with the starter bundle has finally convinced me to build an army.

I will be using the contents of the 'Start Collecting! Tau' box set as the starting point for the army. This is due to the great value of the box set as I explained in one of my previous posts. From this point I intend to expand to a small force of 500 points for the moment, using the contents of the box set as the formation it comes with as well as a small unbound detachment to round it up to 500 points.

Corvus Corax, Dark Fury Assault Squad, and Legion disparity

The Raven Lord in all his glory

Well Corvus Corax, the Raven Lord, Primarch of the XIX legion or 'Raven Guard', has gone up for pre-order and I gotta say the model looks incredible!

Starting a new 40k army - Start Collecting!

With the release of the new 'Start Collecting! (Insert Chosen Army)' boxed sets by Games Workshop I have decided to start on a new project, namely, the Tau Empire.

Before I talk about the new army I will be building I really need to point out how good value these boxed sets are and this post will be deidicated to that. If we're to look at just the ones for 40k, the factions currently included in the 'Start Collecting!' range are the; Astra Militarum, Skitarii, Tyranids, Necrons, Space Marines, and, of course, the Tau Empire.

Alpha Legion Chaplin Finished!

I'm a huge fan of the Chaplin model

After the horrors of attempting to batch paint it was such a relief to go back to painting one model at a time. Even though he wont be in the final force, I decided to paint the Chaplin from the Betrayal at Calth box-set.
