Inquisitor warband, Silence of the Shroud (Ordo Hereticus) part 4

Inquisitor warband, Silence of the Shroud (Ordo Hereticus) part 4

My name is Malhett, and I’m the last of the original son’s of Prospero. The day when Prospero had fallen was the day my legion died by the wolves of Fenris. They mercilessly slaughtered my brothers with their incessant pride like a pack of hungry wolves, ready to tear our throats with savage satisfaction. Me and my brothers couldn’t hold the ‘Space Wolves’ at bay, so we we fled to the safest way we could. Our options were limited, we would never be able to reach our primarch in time as back up, nor would we be alive if we stayed on our dying world.

Our only option was to flee on our arcane craft away from Prospero. At first we left our planets orbit with ease, but then the wolves followed us with their weapons armed and loaded. Our craft was hit as we we’re about to jump into warp space, making our ships course go off its projected path way by the navigators. Thankfully we were able to exit the warp, and came out into the solar system to holy Terra itself. We might just be able to warn the Emporer of Horus’s betrayal and our Primarchs innocence in time.

But we were too late, 9,000 years later………

My memory after warp transition was hazy, I can only remember being knocked out after our ship was surrounded. The onboard incomes were humans of Terra, but bear iconography that I’ve never seen before. My last memory of the event before I became unconscious was seeing that symbol, an single ‘I’ in red with a skull in the middel of the icon.

My brothers and I were interrogated for what felt like an eternity from our captors interrogation attempts. All of my brothers onboard the ship had died from interrogation, except for me, the last son of Prospero.

8,000 years later, I was proven to be loyal to the Imperium and the Emporer. However, the sins of my legion are hung upon my shoulders and must pay the price for its heresy. I was assigned to join an inquisition warband named ‘the Silence of the Shroud’, lead by Inquisitor Heralock. My role is simply to fight until I fall on my last breath, to atone for my legions heresy.

However, if I do not die in battle, a worse fate will befall me by the ‘change’…….

Bearing the legion symbols of a forgotten age, Malhett is a rusting relic that will never be remembered once he finally falls. Either by a killing blow from battle against the Imperiums enemies, or be consumed by the ‘change’ and become a warp tainted monstrosity.

Black Templars, 8th edition collection part 6

Black Templars, 8th edition collection part 6

Today’s post will be a short one, as there’s not much to explain on my WIP model painting, as well as being very busy with other stuff. So there won’t be any narrative story today, nor any exposition on my process work. I hope this won’t be too much of an inconvenience, I’ll be back to the usual standard next week when things get sorted.

These models are still WIP, but I thought I would show you guys what I’ve done so far with the project. Enjoy!

My first flyer for the army, the Stormhawk Interceptor will provide my force with air support, which will be handy against enemy shooting units that try to weaken my close combat squads.
Transporting my Crusader squad to battle, the Land Raider Crusader is a perfect choice for any Black Templar fanatic.

Finally, we have the Chaplin of the Darkstar crusade company.

Chaos Space Marines: Death Guard army

Chaos Space Marines: Death Guard army

Today I thought I might try something different from the my usual content, and show you guys my upcoming project that I’ll be starting after I’ve done my Black Templars force. It’s early stages for planning this army, as there’s a lot of decision making for how I’m going to build this army. So far, I’ve just about unlocked the patrol detachment, which only needs a compulsory units of one HQ and one Troop choice.

Death Guard force list

  • 1x Daemon Prince of Nurgle
  • 1x Chaos Lord of Nurgle
  • 1x Hellbrute 
  • 7x Plague Marines
  • 7x Chaos Space Marines
  • 1x Defiler

The leader of the army detachment is led by a Daemon Prince of Nurgle.

 My second HQ choice is a Chaos Lord with the mark of Nurgle, armed with his plasma pistol and filth encrusted blade disease.

The first troop unit consist of seven marines, seven being the lucky number for uncle Nurgle!

 Beside my first troop choice is unit of seven Plague marines, which are a kit bash unit I did years ago when I disliked the official resin kit. This was before the new iteration were released in plastic, which look disgusting and horrendous for all the right reasons.

Ah yes, this model was the bane of all models that I had to paint, so many repaints and colour schemes were used on this model. Thankfully, those days are far behind me now that the Defiler has finally been painted.

 Finally, we have the Hellbrute 

Whilst I do have a playable Death Guard army for 8th edition to play for smaller games, it’s far from ready in my honest opinion. There’s still a lot of areas that need sorting, including finishing off re-basing/ painting models, what units I want to add to the force, and finally getting a copy of the rules for Chaos. Therefore, I’ve got a lot to sort out before I can even play this army, 

But for now, I’m impressed with the amount of models I’ve got that are nearly completed, which gives me hope that my Chaos army can finally be used after years of neglect.

I’ll let you guys know more about this projects progress in about a months time, hopefully that’ll be enough time for me to get my current project done. Speaking of which, my next post on my Black Templars will be released either this Sunday or Monday, depending on how the weekend goes for me.

Where’s last weekends content?

Hi guys, I just wanted to post a short post to explain why there wasn’t any content last weekend. Anyone living in the UK will know that the weather has been terribly hotter than usual, our grey sky’s were banished by the suns light. 

Whilst many would be glad that the weather is finally warm and sunny, for me however, it was horrible. My motivation and enthusiasm was sloppy due to the heat, so I couldn’t get anything done for painting wise. This has also sadly delayed my progress for completing my Black Templars collection deadline before the release of 8th edition.

On the bright side, at least I didn’t have to do anymore paperwork!

The plan now is that I’ll see how tomorrow will be like for weather wise, if it gets cooler than I’ll be able to get back into my painting schedule. Alternatively, if the sun decides that it hasn’t melted humanity enough yet, then I’ll post my plans for my army detachment for Warhammer 40k 8th edition games. 

Either way, there will be posts at some point in the weekday this week, Which I intend to publish (even if the sun turns me into a steamy ghoul steak).

Anyways, I hope your all enjoying the weather today, and I hope you have a great day!

[kitbashed] Landskimmer, prototype MKII

[kitbashed] Landskimmer, prototype MKII

It’s finally time to see what that sneak peak photo looks like in full, trust me, you’ll be amazed at what this contraption looks like……

Drum roll……

The latest (old) technology in vehicle design, the Landskimmer provides not only a fast rocket propelled boosts (taken from a Stormhawk gunship) but it also incorparates two close combat flamers and two long range weaponry. This vehicle can be a tactical preference for close and personal agendas against Xenos scum and heretic traitors alike!

This first iteration of the Landskimmer (MKI) was developed by the Black Templars Crusader Techmarine, Ivanson, during the Third war for Armageddon. He suggested that there should be a quicker way of burning Ork scum, so he found the parts necessary to create his new (old) design.

At first it was a success when it was deployed to burn the Ork horde that was heading towards the outpost, however, it was soon apparent that the machine spirit had mistaken this prototype for a Stormtalon gunship. Activating the engines on full power, the craft headed straight for the Ork horde and exploded in a mushrooom cloud of promethium…..!?!


For an imaginative kitbash, I think it’s pretty cool considering I’ve not done kitbash from scrap before. While it does look very impractical for its appearance and function (well, actually a lot of the Imperiums vehicle designs look blocky and impractical), but still it’s a grim dark future, so anything is possible! 

I would love to deploy this model for games of 8th edition, but it doesn’t have any hombrew rules (I’m not a great rules writer to be honest), nor are there any existing rule sheet to substitute. Therefore, if anyone reading this would like to write some rules for this model, by all means do so. But on one condition, it has to be apart of the Black Templars chapter, since it’s not been shared to other factions due to its prototype development.

Good luck!

Flesh-Eater Courts: Liverbone Court [14/6/17]

Flesh-Eater Courts: Liverbone Court [14/6/17]

Wow, it’s been a long time since I’ve last posted an update for this faction, the last post about this army was my kit bash model of Elder Hag Hexter, which was way back in January. However, I’ve now returned to this WIP faction project after a long absence from other projects.

My plans for this faction have changed from my original goal of creating a 1,500pt army, to instead going towards a 100 renown Flesh-Eater Courts Skirmish hunting party. I think this is sensible decision because the army has deep lore that ties it to the Grey-mane dynasty, which would be better presented for small narrative skirmish games. Therefore I won’t need to invest much for this collection, as I’ll only need one warscroll for each unit to play skirmish. 

Now with that I’ve explained all that, let’s take a look and see what’s new for the faction.

Elder Hag Hexterlooking very grotesque and vile by the curse of King Ren’s gift, Hexter has been transformed into a creature of misery and morbidity. A Sychophant Ghoul Queen tied to the Liverbone Court, changed after nearly dying from intense magical burns by a ‘dead kings’ ring of ancestors old. Her hatred for her nemesis is raw to the core of her being, she would see that this undead king will perish by her alchemical magic, to encase him in enteral molten gold as punishment for her pain.

This is one of my favourite models I’ve painted so far for this faction, I like how her pose and facial expression gives off this animalistic intent to strike at her target. The Blood on her clawed hands and mouth creates a great touch to her ghoulish state, making her less human by her degrading appearance.

So far the collection includes 3x Crypt Horrors, 1x Crypt Haunter Coutier, 1x Crypt Ghast Courtier, 3x Crypt Ghouls and 1x Abhorrent Ghoul Queen. I’ve estimated that all of this totals to 80-90 renown, but I’ll check the proper calculation when I’ve got a few more Crypt Ghouls into the skirmish hunting party.

My plans for this project are to paint a few more Crypt Ghouls for a unit of 10x, as well as painting my Crypt Infernal Courtier. After that I’ll only need to get a unit of Crypt Flayers to finish off this project, which will give me a variety of options to choose my units for skirmish games.

As for my Abhorrent Ghoul king on Terrorgheist? Well, I’ll keep him on display in my model shelf as a display piece. The model is quite fragile to transport with me for gaming, which is sad. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean to say that Ren himself won’t be joining the skirmish battles, yet……

AoS collection (progress so far)

AoS collection (progress so far)

After a few months of project work on my AoS collection since the last update post, I’ve had a few new additions to my Khorne alliance. The rest haven’t changed since last time, but that’ll change now that Skirmish is released.

I’ve got my copy of AoS Skirmish, it’s a lot more focused on the narrative aspect for smaller games as a one off match or a campaign. From this I’m going to focus all of my effort to make a 50 renown point army for faction models that are keyed as [Skirmish]. At least I won’t have to invest much into these factions now that I can just use them for smaller games.

The first faction to be on my Skirmish project will be my Liverbone Court army, which will be a 50 renown group led by Elder Hag Hexter. Since I’ve already given her a backstory, the campaign narrative will be easier for me to write a goal for Hexter and her Court minions. 

For now though, here’s a list of factions that I’m currently working on for my AoS collection.
