If Marneus Calgar is supposed to be "one of the Imperium's greatest tacticians" and he treats the Codex like it's the War Bible, but the Codex is garbage, then how bad is everyone else?

So, it's been basically a year. I was really not busy for a while. I moved to a place even closer to the beach, and the hobby was all downhill from there, haha.

Then we started playing X-Wing mostly. Other than magnetizing all my ships, there's not much I can do with that game, conversion-wise.

But, then, suddenly the clouds parted, a ray of sunlight pierced through from the heavens, and Genestealer Cult returned to the Warhammer 40K universe.


So I cut them apart.




More on that project when I have the time to construct a coherent long-form post for it.

I've been away for a bit. So busy, so little attention to my forum posts. You guys can always follow me on Facebook, as it will update any time I do anything new. I don't post a ton, so it isn't like I'm going to spam your page. Heck, with Facebook's new algorithm, you'll be lucky to see anything from me at all unless you like/comment on my posts (then Facebook decides you "care" enough).

Oldcrons! with converted gauss weapons and re-posed legs and arms.


More Eldar Corsairs


Space Skaven! Proof of concept test models made from Stormvermin, and a variety of 40K weapons. My buddy loves Skaven, but can't seem to get into Necromunda.


Mordheim


X-Wing (well, a B-Wing, technically)


Genestealer Cultists




A "platoon's" worth of "Upright" Space Orks


Even started putting a few base-layers of paint on Spess Mahreens

I love the idea of 40k Skaven in Necromunda. There would totally be mutant ratmen living in the polluted, radioactive depths of the Hives.
A thought on their weapons though. I think their weapons would look a little more varied. Like pulling in orc shootas and cultist, (Chaos & geenstealer) along with some regulation flashlights, err... I mean, lasguns.
Other than that always fun to see an update from you.

Haha, another fan of having models step up onto bits of sprue .

Are you working on all those armies at the same time?

I figured Necromunda mutant rats would have scavenged Imperial weapons. Since they'll likely get used for Kill Team too, I gave a couple Kroot rifles too. I put models on sprue because eventually they should have real bases, and the sprue helps hold them in place and keeps them from breaking off the bases.

What are armies? You talk like I actually play 40K ever, lol. We play a little bit of Necromunda and Mordheim, but 40K games are few and far between. I just like cutting up figures and re-posing them to look cooler. I mean, I'd like to play more 40K, but it rarely happens. In the mean time, I just like having cool looking models that are unique to my collection. Because my favorite part of the hobby is seeing what people can create with their imaginations.

I was working on my own variant of Kill Team based closer on 2nd Edition rules mixed with some of the better WW2 games like Chain of Command and Battlegroup Kursk, but it's a massive undertaking to get it all balanced. I'd love to just play some platoon-sized games of 40K where movement and terrain matter again and there aren't any death stars or giant robots etc. So all of my "armies" are built using that idea.

I already have about 200 or so IGuard (Steel Legion and metal Cadians) and some tanks and transports. I'll end up having roughly "platoon" sized forces of Orks, Tau, Necrons, Eldar Corsairs, and Genestealer Cult when I'm "done", along with some vehicles for each. Then I can just play with my friends, since I can supply all the models, heh.

I've been kind of industrious. My Counts-As Deathwatch using actual Deathwatch parts are taking shape. The Mark 8 kit is cool. Far better proportions and a little taller than the standard kits, so it takes less extension to have them at the same scale. Models on the right are Mk8 bodies, the one on the left is a standard Mk7 from the old kit.



I threw together some more Fire Warriors with "Shorty" Pulse Rifles. I really like the Breacher Helmet. Wish I had more of them. The new Tau Fire Warrior kit is a massive improvement over the old one. They're still not the most exciting models in the world, but they're way better than they used to be, and the kit actually has some interesting bits on the sprues.

Dark Gray are new, light Gray are old.


Oh hey, look, I have a medal. Hadn't noticed that before, but apparently I've had it for a while, lol.
