The Son of Horus A Lions Rampant Reiver Squad.


The Chapter eschews stealth in preference of frontal assaults where the foe can be dispatched eye-to-eye. More than that, they view the kind of terrorism and sabotage operations that the Reivers are meant to do as dishonorable. Instead, the Lions Rampant have issued Mk X plate to Assault Squads, who function identically to other Chapter's Reivers on the tabletop. Namely, they deploy by grav-chute from a thunderhawk and lay into the enemy in close combat, but maintain the look and feel of the classic Assault Squad rather than the Reiver special operatives.

The Son of Horus


Finished some Aggressors. I have two more to finish to round out the squad. I get why they made the squads for Aggressors and Inceptors units of 3-6, but those squad sizes don't feel very Space Marine-y to me. So I've gone with squads of five, even though that leaves a leftover model from the kits.

The Son of Horus Played an Apocalypse game. I actually hadn't had a chance to get a game in in quite a while because of work. I don't normally photograph games, but there were a couple impressive shots to take-- the march of the ancients folding the right flank and churning through a whole mess of Riptides and Crisis Suits. The Contemptor Talon was definitely the MVP-- the three of them, covered by the Redemptor and Leviathan, accounted for four Riptides, twelve Crisis suits, and a pair of Commanders.






We ended up splitting the game over two separate tables. I finished the Sector Imperialis table I've had sitting around for a couple years now for the event, and then I ended up on the other table. Oh well. Here's the finished Sector Imperialis table, too.

Roganzar Those look great.
As for Vandus Hammerhand I donít, and didnít, see any reason to replace the Lord Celestant on the mount. Itís a great looking model and thereís a Battlescroll for that mounted Lord Celestant. Thatís what I chose to do with mine since I went with the Lions of Sigmar.

The Son of Horus Finished the Lord Celestant and a couple Retributors. I'll have to replace the Lord Celestant model at some point since this one technically is Vandus Hammerhand, a named character, but it'll do for the moment.

The Son of Horus Finished another Stormcast.

The Son of Horus I like to juggle a couple projects at a time to keep from getting too bogged down in any one thing. Keeps everything fresh and exciting.


I've never really had the push to build an Age of Sigmar army, but I have ended up with SO MANY stormcast eternals as a byproduct of owning a store-- GW gave me like three demo copies of the original boxed game, and I have a couple demo copies of Soul Wars. I had WHFB armies, so I never felt the need to belt out the AoS-specific stuff-- for demo purposes, Warriors of Chaos and Orcs always did just fine. As AoS gets bigger and bigger around here, I realized I ought to actually sit down and paint up this plus or minus 4000 points' worth of Stormcast Eternals.


Something really cool that caught my eye in the background was that the souls used to forge the Stormcast Eternals are from across time and space-- the only consistency between them is that they are champions of humanity who died fighting Chaos. There were a couple things that strongly implied Space Marines might have been included in that, since Chaos/The Void/The Warp/Whatever is the consistent singular thing between the settings, and they've made it clear that they're not separate "instances" of Chaos, but these are literally one and the same place. When AoS originally came out, it couldn't be clearer that the Stormcasts were Space Marines by another name anyway. So I thought it'd be cool to see what Sigmar might have done with the souls of the vengeful loyalist Sons of Horus who were killed by their brethren on Istvaan, in another time, in another place, that echoes in the warp. Their souls would be strong enough-willed to survive the reforging almost universally, if you think about it. They have no memory of what they were before, only a hatred of Chaos and impressions of a sigiled eye and a brooding sense of deep betrayal. And, it turns out, the deep sea green and black of the Sons of Horus looks pretty good on the Stormcasts...

Iraqiel I'm yet again super impressed, amazing painting and fantastic vision! The entire composition is excellent, I particularly like the spot colouration the reds give.

The Son of Horus Finished a Knight Warden, which has the full heraldry of the house. The checks mark a baron, and the crossed scythes on the tilting shield mark ten successful campaigns in the Emperor's service.
