I completely agree! Believe it or not, those are the stock GW poses. The Primaris models in general aren't super posable, so they can end up with sort of weird looks like that. My next box of Inceptors that will round out the squad I may experiment with cutting on to try to get less silly poses.

That sucks about the posing!

Great Unclean One. I need to paint up some Plaguebearers to accompany him, since Supreme Command Detachments aren't ideal as a way to include him alongside my Death Guard.

Hive scum! At the very least, this will end as a House Orlock gang for Necromunda, but I'm really considering building an Imperial Guard army out of them using the Catachan rules. The idea of a Lord Commissar leading a whole bunch of biker gang dudes appeals to me for some reason-- it's so ridiculous that it works somehow.

Whew! It's been a minute since I've posted. Lots of hectic stuff going on here, so I haven't had a lot of time to do much of anything.


But, with the new Imperial Knights stuff, I couldn't resist building a Knight army. My first love was Battletech and now that there is more than just the single type of Imperial Knight out there, it was hard for me not to indulge there.


I'm using the House Hawkshroud rules, which I think have a good sort of grim stubborn feel to them. I haven't figured out much of the details of my Imperial house, like a name or anything. But, due to a quirk with their thrones mechanicum, they are obsessed with the concept of life, death, and eternal service to the Emperor. I took cues from the Garden of Morr and things like that for the heraldry-- the bigger knights are going to have bleeding rose petals and vines intertwining through skulls all over them on bone-white armor plates, and all of the knights that have a face mask (so, not the Armigers) will have the skull mask. For the bigger knights, each skull that is not a part of the household crest will represent one superheavy kill, and each rose blossom on the vines painted all over the armor will represent one campaign. So there'll be some logic to the heraldry and the barons will have really intricate carapaces while the lesser nobles will have less decoration. And the armigers, being at the bottom, will just have the household crest and the split rose blossom/skull shoulder pad like this one.



Speaking of, this is the first model I've finished for the army. I originally left it unweathered, but I realized Knights, even Armigers, are such high profile targets that there's no way that bone white is going to stay clean. Particularly if the pilot is obsessed with an eternity of service to the Emperor through life, death, and rebirth and has no concern for their own mortality or the structural integrity of their war machine.

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.







The lance so far:

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.

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...
