I’m back, AT Legio Mortis

Hi all, I’m back blogging.

I’m mainly working over at Unityb4heresy at the moment. I will start updating this page with other projects.

First you is an entry for a Titan Challenge on “the Bolter and Chainsword” forum.

I’m going to paint a Full Regina Maniple in the colours of the Legio Mortis.

This consists of two Warlords, and Three Warhounds.  The armour plates are blank plastic or basecoated black.

Here’s the titans as of today.

I’ll post the completed shoots in a few weeks.  Check back then.

Thousand Sons

Today's post is about my Thousand Sons.  These bad boys have really got under my skin in a way even the Alpha Legion haven't.  I've been painting and this is what I nearly have finished.

What do you think?

6mm Roman Cohort Project

Today's post is about the start of a project I have been planning for a while, I want to build a full Roman Cohort.  That's 6 Centuries of 80 Legionaries.  To give myself a chance I have decided to do this in 6mm, which incidentally is the scale I started miniature collecting ~30 years ago (Space Marines / Adeptus Titanicus).

With this in mind, have bought a selection of miniatures from Baccus Miniatures.  I love these little sculpts, so lovely and tiny.  I have made a start on these models, getting the first Century quite a way along.  I've also been working on the horsemen.  So I have to purchase two more centuries and another set of ballistas.


Not looking forward to the next ~480 transfers.....

Hope you enjoy this project.  Let me know what you think?

Thousand Son Praetor

Today's post is about my Thousand Sons Praetor.  He is based off the Ahriman model.  I have only really changed three things:
- The casting hand swapped for a plasma pistol
- The removal of the horns
- The head swap

Still really like the options this guy gives.

Painting a Warlord Titan

Today's post is about my Warlord Titan.  I've finally decided, after much procrastination it must be said, that I will paint this as a member of Legio Atarus.  The Firebrands 🔥.  I've started on the armour plates, and this is where I'm up too.

Alpha Legion Moritat Completed

Today's post is about my completed Alpha Legion Moritat.  I really love this model, the absolute utility and functionality of the look. He really does look like a one man Army.   He's equipped with two volkite's, as with the number of dice he can roll, I'd rather he didn't die from gets hot rolls.

On to the pictures!

What do you think? Let me know in the comments section below.

Thousand Sons Leviathan Dreadnought

Today's post is about my latest addition to my growing Thousand Sons Army.  A Leviathan Dreadnought.  I've gone for a fixed armament of, twin volkites, storm cannon  and claw with melta gun.

I love this model and have a second in a bath right now.  I originally had this earmarked for my Iron Warriors, but now I'm not so sure.  The second will get magnetised for sure.

He's pretty much done, but I may add a black band to the gold line.  It's not quite popping for me at the moment.
