Death Guard: Terrax Assault Drill

5 kommentarer

Legends or fully part of the Death Guard army? Time will show. Finally managed to finish this lovely model. As usual in the end I felt I just had to finish this one before being 100 percent happy. Looking forward to trying it out on the battlefield, but as we all know, it will probably be transfered to a part of a CSM detachment.

Really liked the old rules. The updated datacard is not worse, maybe even better. A shame that the drill is only Legends for Death Guard now, but maybe I can find a way to sqeeze it in.

Ultramarines Terminator Squad

It has taken me ages to complete these models... I equipped them with complimentary weapons to my existing models, two with Cyclone Missile Launcher, one with Assault Cannon, one standard Sergeant with Power Sword and Storm bolter, and two with Power Fists and Storm bolters.


I can now field 2 X 10 Terminators with a variety of weapons (2 with Heavy Flamers, 2 with Assault Cannons and 2 with Cyclone Missile Launchers). All "standard" Terminators are now finished. Only 5 models left to complete, and my 1st Company will be completed. But before I continue, I will treat myself with a couple of terrain projects. 

Cheers,

My quest for finishing the 1. company continues. This time a unit of 5 Assault Terminators with Lightning Claws. I can now field 2 X 10 Assault Terminators, 10 with Storm Shield and Thunder Hammers and 10 with Lightning Claws.


Puh – finished with all the Assault Terminators for this project, 11 more Terminators to go... 

Cheers,

Ultramarines Company Veterans (and Sgt upgrades)

1 kommentarer
In my quest for finishing the 1. company, for variety, I decided to make two of my veterans into «company veterans», giving them Storm bolters and Storm shields.
While I was at it, I also decided to re-arm some of my 2. company Sgt (I have built Sgt so I can field them with several weapon options), with Storm bolters and Chain swords. I am starting to run short of bits (happy to say so now that I am getting closer to finishing my project).
Only 16 veterans to in my quest for the 1. company…

Cheers,

Ultramarines Devastators

2 kommentarer
After a couple of months painting white, gold and cloth, it was time to focus on models that I find a bit easier to paint.   Since day one I have always loved the Devastator Squads. To me, they portray the essence of the fire power Marines can field. I am a bit of a nutt-case. I already have 3 Devastator Squads, but often find myself “borrowing” heavy weapons from my Tactical Squads to arm them in the way I want to field them. That means that the squad markings are not correct, and that is a real problem… Hence, it was time to rectify that problem!
To me there is nothing more iconic than Heavy Bolters, so I built and painted 4 of them.

While I was at it, I also built and painted two models with Plasma Cannons, so I can field 4 of them with correct unit markings.

Finally, I built and painted two models with Las cannons, so I can field 4 of them with correct unit markings.

The whole batch of 8 Devastators

What next? I have to return to the remaining 18 models I need to complete my 1. Company. Wish me luck, the remaining models will take a lot of effort given my limited skills.
