Chaos Lord of Khorne on Juggernaut
I've finally finished repairing/ re-painting my Chaos Lord of Khorne on a Juggernaut, having given him a pair of lightning claws that came from the Raptors box set.
I will probably use a unit of CSM Chosen from the Dark Vengeance box set as an entourage for him, as they are mostly armed with close combat weapons. Alternatively, I could always use a regular Khorne Berzerker unit for him.
So, as the 8th Edition of Warhammer 40,000 has happened, I ended up getting some of the starter boxes to get me some of the new Primaris marines, as well as a starting point for a new Death Guard CSM force. Ultimately, I ended up getting one box of Dark Imperium, 2 boxes of First Strike, 2 boxes of Know No Fear, a box of Reivers, a Redemptor Dreadnought and a Repulsor.
So far, I have done some units for the Dark Angels and the with the rest of the Primaris marines, they are to be painted up in a new (for me) chapter's colours - Ultramarines. Here is what I have done so far. First, here are the Dark Angel units (Still some models to go).
Next up, here are the Ultramarines (2nd company) models done so far:
Finally, other factions did not get neglected, as I now show a 'test' Plague Marine model, a second Tech-Priest Dominus and a Fulgurite Electro-Priest.
So, this has been a rather lengthy blog post but it has been a couple of months since the last one and it shows that the …
Well, it has been a while since I last posted but I managed to get some more painting/ building time, due to having this week off work.
Firstly, let's start with Skitarii/ Mechanicus models. I finished off the last two vehicles that completed the second battle maniple of my purple Skitarii and started on the Kataphron Breacher units. As the models are done, the Skitarii infantry have now been boxed, awaiting battle when the new edition of 40k comes out in just over 2 weeks time.
Now, as GW recently released Shadow Wars: Armageddon, I have tried out using Skitarii as a kill-team with decent results. I have now boxed the infantry up, I am taking unused models and doing them up in a different colour scheme to tell the difference between which ones are being used for what system. I painted up a model in dark green just to see what it looks like.
I also, on a bit of a whim, bought a box of Ork boys to create another kill-team, as no-one else in my local gaming club used Orks and I am g…
Well, after an on/off period of about two years, I am coming close to finishing the Skitarii project, which involves building two battle maniples (as per the formation in the rulebook). There are only two vehicles left to go to finish that off - either an Ironstrider Ballistarius or a Sydonian Dragoon and an Onager Dunecrawler. Here is what I have done so far.
If you are wondering why some units look a bit different in colour, there are two different purples I used for the primary colour - one is GW's Xereus Purple and the other is the Vallejo Model Colour Violet.
After these guys are done, I will probably go on to doing either a Drop Pod for the Deathwatch, a unit of Custodes or two units of Kataphron Breachers, to finish off the Cult Mechanicus guys.
Finally, I recently got a few Stormcast Eternals in my last trip to the Warhammer shop and I painted up a Liberator-Prime, using the Vallejo Violet colour and a two Vallejo metallics for the gold armour (Old Gold, then Gold).
