From the shed: Kill Team terrain.

A quick post here to round off the month… I finished painting the last of my kill team terrain that I got from the Sector Sanctoris kill zone.

All were painted in acryllics then given an oil wash to bring out the details. A chaos cul;tist made his way intosome of the photos from a sense of scale. I may go back and add some zombie arms poking through one of the grates yet… undecided on that as it would involve basing it.

It will be good to game with fully painted terrain now.

Cheers,

Pete.

PS- here is a picture of me in my favourite Tshirt for IRO’s March challenge….

From the Shed: Servants of the Abyss for Kill Team.

GW briefly sold the sprue of the chaos models from the BlackStone Fortress game seperately. I picked a set up to use as a Kill Team as it has some interesting models in they should play different to what I already have. The mix of figures you can have really appeals to my in fluff/ lore terms as it seems to encapsulate the idea of a Chaos Warband really well in a way that hasn’t been done before.

I’ve just finished up the first half of that box.

The Rogue Psyker and Chaos Space Marine.

The Traitor guard (lovely figures these- wish more poses were available).

I’ll start work on the Beastmen and Negavolt Cultists as well as the bigger pack of cultist to go with them

Cheers,

Pete.

From the Shed: Alpha Legion Chaos Space Marines.

I was kindly given some of the old chaos Spaqce Marines by a friend so decided to paint them up as the infamous Alpha Legion. Notorious for the cunning and deceit, and the subject of many a meme, they look quite fancy in teal and silver. Also in the game lore they make extensive use Chaos cultists which is something that appeals. I also bought the commander from the Blackstone Fortress set seperately to go with them.

Within the squad I have a leader with power fist, a heavy bolter, a flamer, a standard and then a mix of bolters and chainswords with bolt pistols.

I thinking of getting a box of the fallen to convert and paint up in robes to play on their in universe nature.

Either way what I have now will make for a good Kill Team force.

Cheers,

Pete.

From the Shed: Nurgle Daemon Prince

This is going to be the leader and centrepiece for my army- I really enjoyed painting him up and went to town with the washes and detailing. I imagined him as a Chaos Marine who has achieved his aim of becoming a Chaos Champion, rather than ending up as a Chaos Spawn, as seen in the previous post. Those 40k fans of a certain vintage will remember the Chaos campaigns you could run from the Realms of Chaos books. I alwasys fancied that sort of narrative driven skirmish campaign. I guess Necromunda fulfills that need now but I may yet go back to the old Rogue Trader ideas.

Cheers,

Pete.

From the Shed: Death Guard Characters

I’ve been using lockdown to get my Nurgle army painted, getting very close to it being finished now.

Over the next few days I’ll put up a series of posts showing what I’ve added to it…

First up some Character models:

Felthius, Typhus and a Lord of Contagion.

Tallyman, Malignant Plaguecaster, Plague Surgeon and Foul Blightspawn.

Some of these I’ll be able to use in Kill Team too which should be fun.

Cheers,

Pete.

From the Shed: The latest expansion for my Van Saar gang.

Given that the local club where I play Necromunda has been closed since lockdown I thought it would be a good time to get the next 10 of my gang painted… I know that makes 30 but it gives me plenty of options to swap out models as my gang grows in campaigns (which will hopefully restart sooner rather than later). Also I still had some of the Forge World Weapon parts to use up.

The only down side is I’ve gone off the colour scheme I picked for them now. I’ll still use them as they are a good gang but I was less enthused about painting them than I thought I would be.

Still on with the pics.

The full 10.

The shield carriers – hand flamer, plasma pistol, flamer, multimelta and las carbine.

Gangers with melta gun, combi plasma/ las gun and servo claw, Graviton gun, stave and sub las carbine, twin plasma pistols.

Cheers,

Pete.

From the Shed: NBC troopers and assorted GW figures.

I rush painted these for the Zone Alfa game that I featured in my last blog post.

The NBC troops are, of cource, early Copplestone sculpts (still available from Moonraker minitaures) . I can’t say enough nice things about this range….

The Ur Ghouls and Spindle drones are from the Blackstone Fortress exapansion pack that I picked up.

They should be useful for lots of different things. The Ur Ghouls (the blue ones) were to  stand in as mutants in Zone Alfa.

Cheers,
