FASTER TO THE FIGHT With a legion that can move almost as fast as their transports, especially the Grey Slayer packs I'll admit it's a bit odd to add non-assault transports like Rhinos. However, I'm old-school and really like the classic 'Deimos' pattern Rhino profile. WHY TAKE ONE WHEN YOU CAN TAKE THREE The Deimos is a Forgeworld conversion
"We are the wolf that stalks the cold skies, and swallows the star-fire. We are they hidden in the darkness when the light has gone..." BROTHERS OF THE WOLF Originally when I was forming the list in my mind I included the legions Varagyr terminators being the obvious choice for a Jarl's honour guard. However as I was taking Hvarl
DECEMBER This is the first of what I am hoping will be a regular series of progress posts, showing the various stages my miniatures go through from box to battlefield. It isn't intended to be a step-by-step guide, but rather a chance for me to provide some insight into my thought process as I work through each project.
IT'S JUST NOT THE ROUT WITHOUT BIKES Opinions may vary of course and I'm only talking about my own collection, but for me the Wolves are an assault force. Cunning, yes. Savage, absolutely, but not undisciplined. Quite the opposite in fact. As I may have mentioned the Wolves were the very first 'army' I ever painted for Warhammer 40,000 and I took
VORAX MANIPLE When I commited to assembling the Ultramarines for a horus heresy event weekend I knew I needed at least one unit that would just pop! colour wise from the rest of the force on display, but still look cohesive. Mechanicum units have that ability to stand out in any army but back in my first edition Epic days there used
FOR HONOUR The XIII Legion Ultramarines were the first legion I collected specifically to play Age of Darkness (The Horus Heresy). Originally I started them in 2012 to be my way back into Warhammer 40,000, it was around this time that Forgeworld had started releasing alternative armour kits which were heresy era in all but name at the time. I never really
FLY THE UNFRIENDLY SKIES Each time I start a new loyalist or traitor force I pick a theme to anchor the rest of the force around. It doesn't have to be cohesive as I tend to select what I like the look of more than necessarily what is competitive. If I like the legion then they will probably get enough additional units
VLKA FENRYKA STORM EAGLE I'd been pre-warned by a number of friends that Forgeworld's Storm Eagle kit could be a somewhat "challenging" build, especially getting the fuselage to align neatly. I really wanted to include one in my 'Rout' however as alongside the Thunderhawk and Stormbird it has become an iconic transport option for heresy forces. In truth it wasn't as difficult
