A bunch of us have got heavily into 30k ever since Calth came out. We were all hobbyists before, mostly 40k/WFB, but branching out into Flames of War and Bolt Action. Calth has absolutely taken over our entire hobby lives. 30k or death! So we'll be posting about that mainly!

My old 40k marines were all upscaled a bit (using a modified version of Veteran Sergeant's technique that I saw on HeresyOnline way back), so I definitely wanted to carry that on to 30k. I refined my version a bit, made them a bit chunkier, and convinced some (not all) of the lads to go in the same direction....

in no particular order we have...

MyIron Warriors




I'm not the best painter of the bunch, but given the volume I've put out (I've got around 3.5k painted since Calth) I'm very happy with them.
I've gone for a fluffy, infantry heavy army, though having just read The Ironfire ROW, I'm going to be adding some artillery soon.

T's Imperial Fists



This photo doesn't really do them justice. Ty is a slow, but excellent painter. These guys are currently WIP, and the bases have come on a bit since this was taken. We decided to unify the basing scheme, to tie all the forces together. He's currently working on 10 terminators.

X's Word Bearers



Xander has an eye for detail. These guys are stunning. He's going for a fluffy, deep-into-heresy look for his lads. His Ashen Circle are something to behold!

L's Alpha Legion



Luke hasn't scaled his guys up, and I think it really works with his AL, the sneaky bastards that they are. His blended armour is really lovely. I'll try to get him to upload some close ups.

R's Salamanders




Rob used to be a terrible painter. I don't know what happened. Maybe he drank some radioactive paint? He's the master of the airbrush, and the painter that I'm in business with. He's also our resident power gamer, and his zooming Storm Eagle precipitated the purchase of many fliers and Deredeos...

Q's Night Lords




For what he lacks in volume, he makes up for in quality. Fighting in the kitchen of our war-torn utopian Palace/Cathedral, his Night Lords are, to a man, stunningly painted. His next project is a trio of contemptors and a spartan, all suitably covered in skulls and chains.

HA! I just assembled my own Spartan here this morning for my Word Bearers force. Great job you did on that tank - Let's see if I can do it justice too :)

Watching this space with interest, as a fellow 30k gamer!

Good luck! :)

Haha yeah I did - The sponsons are magnetized, so I can take them off for painting and transportation :p

is it pre heresy? or heresy era?
Well, in it's current state it looks like this, next to two of its brothers:


I will be painting it similarly to my Sicaran - You can check it out in a bigger format here:


Glad to see more pre-heresy goodness on here fellas. Welcome aboard!

I've posted this in the commission service area, but I figured the shots are good, so i'll put them here too...

I'm the builder. I'll build anything, convert anything, sculpt some things.

Mostly I upscale space marines, but I also magnetise, build complex tanks, and work on all sorts. Here are some images of what you can expect....

So today, after a weekend of LAN and no hobby, I present some pictures T sent me of the Fists I built for him recently. He commissioned 10 Tacticals, 20 Breachers, a Spartan and 3 Dreadnaughts. I have one dread left to finish (he wants sword and shield... it's going to take some time.

The breacher sergeant has a magnetised right arm and a lovely suite of options, and the dreads are also magnetised.

I believe some of these are still slightly Work In Progress, but they're looking great and I was excited to share!

Little by little... the Heresy Builds.

X has done some work on Xardu Laydak and the Blade Slaves, and Q has made some progress on his Night Lords.

He actually finished the destroyers but took gakky photos, so I'll try to get some better ones for a later update.

We really have a problem with the Spartan and how OP it is. The solution: Everyone buys one!
