Default Militarum Tempestus - Gorvorna

Unlike my Nids project what is on going just expanding it - here is something efficient and with a clear goal: Militarum Tempestus - Gorvorna's 2nd special forces.

Firstly in the list is 65 - Scions:
3x Command squads fully magnetized
4x Troops- 10 men: Tempestor and 2 Scions fully magntized per squad
2x Troops- 5 men: Tempestors magnetized
and 1 Commissar minorly modified and magnetized

Then in line is 4 Valkyries fully magetized

After I get a true challenge 4 Tauroxes heavily modified

EDIT on ally force plans: 17.02.2016

That is the main force, also I am doing Inquisitor allies: (These may change - I think I am on the 5th draft)
2x Inquisitors
4x Priests (modified)
8x Crusaders (Modified)
1x Chimera

What is a Special forces regiment without Sniper cover:
Vindicare assasin (Modified)

and as an added extra Marines:
1x Sergeant Telion
5x Scouts - (one guy has two variants)
6x Scouts - (one guy has two variants)

and I am doing six different paint schemes: Snow, jungle, water, city/rocks, desert and Gorvorna's paint scheme. Loads of scouts to paint

Also Baneblade (actually Stormlord - most likely) :D

Lead: Command squad (Leader of forces)
Alpha: 10x man Scion squad
Bravo: 10x man Scion squad
Command: Command squad + commissar
Delta: 10x man Scion squad
Echo: 10x man Scion squad
Sierra: Command squad
Whiskey: 5x man Scion squad
Tango: 5x man Scion squad
Flame: Tauxores
Reaper: Valkyries
Krakatau: Baneblade
Inquisition: 1x Inquisitor
Mangoel: 1x Inquisitor (interrogator fluffwise) + 4 crusaders and 2 priests
Onager: 4 crusaders and 2 priests
Ultra: Scouts
Veil: Scouts
X: Vindicare
Yankee: Highly mobile escorts
Zulu: Highly mobile escorts

I received my first Scions on Friday - (well the first was actually from @Deus Mortis as xmas gift exchange) - then the rant: I ordered from elementgames and the original amount was 9 scions, but then I realized that I need more and asked them to add 3 more Scions to the order... a huge mistake because looks like their IT skills are lacking - firstly they wanted me to pay for the original 9 for a second time and the added 3 - I managed to explain the mistake to them and they fixed the error, but now they sent only 3 scion squads. I informed them of their mistake, but they said I only ordered 3 squads. I sent them a message explaining the whole thing again in detail and asked for a quick response -well that was at noon - normally they've replied in a few hours - hopefully they'll mail me tomorrow starting with the words "We are sorry - you are right..." Anyway at the moment I am missing 9 squads or £160.

That's my rant for the day - now for the progress:


Took me two day to magnetize and glue them... would have done it in half a day, but ran out of glue.
Due to magnetizing I am lacking 2 lasguns per squad of 10. Hoping that I will cut down deficit when I get to Command squads and the two 5-men scion squads.

Next is 4-days of work - hopefully I'll have the remaining Scions by my next days off.

I got the rest of the Scions. Now I have finished 1x command squad. It is my Suicide's teams command.
2x hot-shot-volley guns, vox caster, magnetized Scion - options - medic-kit or hot shot volley gun and 1 Tempestor Prime - magnetized.


The rest of the suicide team 2x Scion squads with magnetized Tempestor, 2x meltas, vox and lasgun.


The reason why everyone gets flags is just for parade purpose with their squad ident. Though I have a problem - I need to either blend or add to make the other side of the flag smooth. I am not sure if liquid greenstuff could do it or should I try to sand it?

Squads I have planned is:
Lead: - Command squad
Alpha: - Scion troops x10
Bravo: - Scion troops x10
Command: - Command squad + Commissar
Delta: - Scion troops x10
Echo: - Scion troops x10
Sierra: - Command squad
Whiskey: - Scion troops x5
Tango: - Scion troops x5

Then I have an alphabetic issue. Codename for Tauroxes is Fire and for Valkyries is Death. But now I have two codes beginning with D. Not sure what to do?

Reaper souds fantastic - cheers!

Didn't have time to do anything last week, but this week I have another 10-man squad assembled:



Also I have assembled the vox caster for all four squads. So the problem I have is that laspistol has a crap range. So I won't be swapping the lasgun for the pistol. Now there is no lasgun for the left hand, but there is a holstered lasgun for the vox. Sorted. But then there is no left hands. I have had to modify some left hands. First I did a flare, for this squad I did a fuel canister, then for the rest a munition case and binoculars.







I might do another squad today evening/tomorrow...

Yay, I wasn't lazy and managed to assemble another 10-man squad (note vox caster was done yesterday and is missing from pictures)

So firstly I have a magnetzing picture. I use 2mmx1mm magnets what I get from Amazon. Then I have some magetized paper to keep me from getting the magnets the wrong way around.
That citadel drill is the best tool I have! It's only £16 - for that quality and the usefulness an absolute bargain! That 2mm drill bit is the largest there is 4 other ones as well (one of the is 2mm as well or just slightly smaller can't quite decide)
The loctite superglue is great, I buy the mini trio 3x 1g. It finishes before there is too much dried glue around the edges and the small size is handy.
I use a needle to transfer the magnet from the paper to the drilled hole. Sometimes I have to press it fully in with my nail, but the whole process is easy - a lot easier than trying to glue lasguns on the non-magnetized models.
With 5 weapon options for two men + tempestor - I end up using 35 magnets per squad.


Then the finished work - a close up on magnetized models:


Two men have no weapons because the lack of hands when using all the special weapons, but once all squads are finished I will be able to finish them. Going to buy an extra scion packet for the Tauroxes as I'll be doing modifying - so I'll get weapons from that and I bought some extra lasguns.
But here is the rest of the squad:

Finished the assembly of my last 10x men squad. next week I'll hopefully do the command squads, commissar and do the final assembly of the 10x men squads. Have to do some greenstuffing on the lasgun power lines and find out how many free lasguns I have. Hopefully enough for all.

So I have magnetized the command squads. Let's start off with my army's only Commissar:
I think he looks good, though I got the magnetizing hole a bit too low:


Here is the second command squad:





Now lack of bits mean that my second command squad (codename: Command as commissar will most of the time be attached to this) got the better bits as the commissar will be attached. Full weapon load out expect only 2x lasguns and 2x volley guns.
Primary command squad (Lead) has 0x meltaguns and only 2x lasguns and 2x volley guns.
Both squad have full 3x flamers, grenade launcher and plasma guns.

Vox casters, my favourites as I get to do some converting. Command vox caster has a knife and Lead has a real tough son of a bitch holding a hot-shot lasgun in one hand ready to blow some heads off while relaying orders.

Now I did a real amateur mistake and let my greenstuff run out and complety forgot about it until now that I needed some. So I have to still do some greenstuffing: lasgun power lines and my army's leader needs doing with greenstuff. Something for next week.




Now I have changed a bit my army's composition, by adjusting the inquisition detachment and adding space marines! Well, this is a fluff army and I WANT snipers. One Vindicare assassin isn't enough.
Marine's will be an ally CAD. HQ: Sergeant Telion (fuck - I am stuck with Smurf chapter tactics) Troops: 5x Sniper scout with cloaks and 5x Sniper scout with camo cloaks possibly FA: 1x Land speeder storm (dedicated transport) I will do 5 of these CADs. One in desert camo, jungle, snow, city/rocky and Gorvorna colours. Then choose their outfits depending on the playing field. One scout will have two models repesinting it Sniper/Missile and the other squad Sniper/Heavy bolter. If I have any extra points.

Scouts will be Normal Marine scout but sergeant Telion will be a Scion model with a Scout sniper or a Imperial guard command squad Sniper model. Here is the command squad sniper variant (as I have no spare sniper rifles I am unable to do the second option.




I bought a few years ago a few Scouts just to paint them finally I got some use for them:



Not the best paint job, but hopefully the sand will make it better. But how do you like the "Sergeant telion" model?

As a note I'd like to say that I bought the Space Marine codex. £35 but worth every penny - what a lovely book with loads of cool pics and great rules for few chapters.
