1st Tactical Squad Revamped

Progress has been somewhat slow of late but in the small amount of time I've had I finally got the revamp done on the original tactical squad. I made a second transfer sheet on a clear background and they worked much better than the white background. Anyway here are a couple of pictures.

Making your own decals

Continuing with my recent efforts to update some of my older miniatures I've turned my attention to the original tactical squad and particularly the lack of any identifying icons so I decided they'd need some decals. I could've just bought the Forgeworld ones but to ensure all the icons look roughly the same across the whole any and be consistant with the other models such as the standard bearer I decided making my own would be best.

DIY Forgeworld MkIc Deimos Rhino

A while ago when Forgeworld release their Heresy Era Rhino. As a model I really like it as a way to add some extra flavour to a pre-heresy army. However at £33 quid I didn't really fancy buying any, especially seeing as I already had the normal Rhino models and Forgeworld no longer seem to offer these models as conversion kits. Well I had a bit of spare time the other day but not enough to get on with painting so I had a go a knocking up a version of my own.

More updating old models

Continuing with my decision to update the original units of this project to bring them in line with my more recent stuff I re-based the standard bearer and apothecary and updated the colour scheme.

Dreadnought Re-painted

I haven't had a huge amount of time for modelling and painting recently so I decided to do something simple which I've been meaning to do for a while. Since I started my Death Guard the style has changed slightly leaving the dreadnought looking a bit out of place so I thought I'd give it a bit of a revamp.

Flames of War Demo Game

A few weeks back I got an all too rare chance to catch up with me friend Ben over at BreakthroughAssault and managed to play a quick demo game of Flames of War. I have to say I had a blast and really enjoyed the opportunity to throw some dice! I did win but it was more about playing a game and hanging out with a good friend. I'm also sure Ben went easy on me and wasn't really trying!

Anyway here are a few action shots from the game.

WIP: HH Death Guard Assault Terminators

Hi All,
Just a quick post for today to show you my assault terminator squad now that the build is finally complete. I'm still toying with the idea of adding some form of neck guard like the FW Cataphrachtii Terminators but I'm not sure how I'd manage it!

Thanks for reading!
