Space Marine Jetbike Conversion

Had a go at converting some Jetbikes for my Codex Storm Hawks. I'm not too good with plasticard just yet so I've kept the conversions rather simple:

A yes that is a spotlight on the back, thought id paint it up as some sort of arcane hovering device.

Codex Storm Hawks v1.0 Complete!

I've been working on this for a while and thought I'd finally share it with people. Here's some blurb:

"This book details the history and organisation of the Storm Hawks Space Marine chapter, a chapter of unknown origin with close links to the Mechanicum of Mars. You will also find rules for Special Characters and their personal background, as well as specialist units only available to the Storm Hawks chapter."

And here's where you can download it from:

I've posted the Codex on the Codex Project forums, so fingers crossed it gets certified!

Some Hobby Progress

Had quite a productive day today: mowed the lawn, hoovered the house, did some other housework... Oh and basecoated/washed my Vindicator and did a bit more to my Mordheim warband:

Mordheim and Deathwatch

Last night's Mordheim game was pretty awesome, and all hung on just one dice roll... We were playing the treasure hunt scenario and I was less than 2" away from the board edge when I had to take a rout test. Luckily I passed and won the game!

Rolled up triple 6 on the exploration chart and received a free Ogre for the next game! Result.

Anyway, was bored so I converted up a Blood Angels Deathwatch marine:

Mordheim Tonight!

Starting our new Mordheim campaign tonight at Warhammer World, will post some photos of it this evening when I get back. There's going to be 6 warbands, although don't expect any of them to be painted at the moment!

Its been through a few revisions, but the warband im taking tonight will be:

  • Captain - Sword, Pistol, Heavy Armour
  • Warrior Priest - Axe x2
  • Witch Hunter - Crossbow, Axe
  • Witch Hunter - Sword, Pistol
  • Witch Hunter - Sword, Shield, Light Armour
  • Flagellants x2 - Flails
  • Hounds x2

A bit heavy on heroes, but why not!

Blood Angels Tank Weathering

Did a bit of weathering on a few Blood Angels tanks this evening, think the chips came out quite well. Looks a bit 'cartoony' but i think that matches with the extreme edge highlighting im doing.

Really easy to do as well. Chaos Black followed by Boltgun Metal, leaving an outside line of black showing. Now I just need to figure out how im going to do the weathering on the tracks.

I'm baaaack!!!!!!

Right, hobby is back on form so I'm restarting this blog! I was going to make this an epic post with tonnes of photos of painted models I have done since the last post. But I thought it would be pointless to look to the past, and concentrate what im doing now. Few projects that im working on:

  • Mordheim! Yes i have brushed out my old Witch Hunters warband and am starting to paint it for a campaign that starts this Friday. Will post some photos of the warband later.
  • Lizardmen! Still going strong, lots of list changes, and i have a Carnosaur - which is a beast, but was a sod to put together. Failcast indeed.
  • Blood Angels! Almost finished 3k worth of models, just highlights to do.
  • Misc! Still got my BFG ships to finish, plus many other random models on my desk that need painting.
