Tartaros Terminators - Sons of Horus - Games Workshop


Hello everyone

A couple of years ago I painted 5 Tartaros Terminators for my Sons of Horus, but I haven't actually used them that much since they never seem to live very long on the battlefield due to their reduced save compared to Cataphractii armoured counterparts. However, since I really liked the design I always wanted to buff them to a 10 man squad and lucky for me I received another 5 as a birthday present from my lovely colleagues at work.

My original group also didn't have any real special weapons apart from the Reaper Autocannon which doesn't benefit much from the Sons of Horus Legion rules, so this time around I wanted to add some better weapons against tanks and some Plasma Blasters which I hope will work great with the Death dealer rule. So I did 4 combi-meltas, 3 Chainfists, 1 Power Sword, 1 Powerfist and a Plasma Blaster. I also did paint a Reaper Autocannon and another Plasma Blaster for my original Autocannon Termie (Gotta love magnets).

Really looking forward to playing them for the first time.

  

Next project might be a Deredeo Dreadnought or some Terrain I have to get finished....Haven't made up my mind :p

Until next time

Angron The Red Angel - Primarch of the XII Legion - Forgeworld


"You kept that mule Kor Phaeron. Russ kept his kin-friends. The Lion kept Luther. Humans - brothers and foster fathers - saved and raised into Legion ranks. But not me. Not Angron, no. Did the Emperor teleport his gold-wrapped Custodians down to help me and my army? No. Did he free the War Hounds and order them to battle, fight alongside me? No. Did he save my brothers and sisters the way he spared and honoured the Lion's closest kin? The way he honoured Kor Phaeron? No, no and no. No mercy for Angron. Angron the Oathbreaker. 
Angron the Betrayer."

Hello everyone
I usually never do any form of commission work and when I do it's usually small things for friends or maybe a birthday present as Alpharius. However one of my friends recently started getting into the Horus Heresy, but since he is colour blind and really dislike painting he's been getting it commission painted by another one of our friends. She didn't really feel like painting Angron though and since I've wanted to paint this miniature ever since it was released, I offered to paint it for a very small (too small it turned out...) sum of money :p

So here he is! in all his bloody glory. Angron Primarch of the World Eaters Legion painted over a month or two, but mostly during the first week of my summer vacation.

I hope you like it :) C&C is as usual much appreciated.

  
  
  
  



  
  
  


Next project is 5 more Tartaros Terminators for my Sons of Horus, so look forward to that I guess.

Until next time

Captain Remus Ventanus - Ultramarines XIII Legion - Forgeworld


"Today we march for Calth"

Hello everyone
I just finished painting this mini, which is the first of my new army project. Ever since I read "Know No Fear" I knew I had to do an Ultramarines army. This project won't be my main focus, but I will probably paint a unit once in a while, slowly building to a 2000-2500pts list, mostly centered around the events on Calth.

I thought I would start out by converting and painting my first HQ choice, Captain Remus Ventanus of the 4th Company. The model is converted from the limited Iron Hands Character, Ultramarine bits, Lokens Cloak and one of Guillimans Standards from his Scenic base.

The mini is painted with a lot of inspiration taken from Matt Kanes Ultramarines and Myles Davids Ultramarine Patreon content.

  
  
  

Anyway hope you like it.
Next up is another Primarch :D

Until next time

Solaire of Astora - Pegaso Models - English Knight XIV c. (54-074)



"The sun is a wondrous body. Like a magnificent father! 
If only I could be so grossly incandescent!"

Hello everyone

I got this model as a birthday gift from my little brother a year or 2 ago and finally got around to actually paint it. I had originally planned to paint it in a more historically accurate theme, but this just seemed a lot more fun! :-D

So instead of painting it as the English Knight, it was meant to be, I decided to paint him as jolly sun searching Knight Solaire from the video game Dark Souls.

I had never previously painted anything in this scale (54mm) so it was a very fun little exercise and I'm very happy with the end result.

  
  



Next up is a single Horus Heresy character which will be the start of my new army #newYearNewLegion and afterwards I will finish painting another Primarch figure for a friend of mine.

So until next time
Chris
