Legiones Astartes of the IV legion. The Iron Warriors

Hey guys Sam here.
Wanted to showcase my horus heresy army which I have been working on since selling my salamanders last january. 

So to start off here is my preator. I used a non forgeworld model for this and am pleased with the result. I plan on running him in terminator armour with the warsmith rule and a paragon blade.
Next is my tac squad, I do not like painting tac squads, I have two squads of 10 which I will use but due to the onslauht detachment normally use only one. In game I prefer to use veterans and support squads.
Now onto elites, my favourite part of the army really. I like running dreadnoughts. Lots of them. The ams are magnetised to take all options but my favourite load out is both fists with melta guns in drop pods. 

Also i have two contemptor mortis dreadnoughts. I run one with kheres and one with lascannons.
These are also magnetised and can be taken with fists.
Two terminator squads as well. One with lightning claws, one with chainfist and bolter. I have pinned cyclone missile launchers on the chain fist ones to run tyrant seige terminators until forge world release a model.
I also have three rapier laser destroyers

My current single fast attack is a lightning strike fighter. Usually ran with kraken missiles for anti spartan / knight shooting" I do tend to run with one pair of sunfury to kill marines as well.

Heavy support now
First up my most recent unit. Four castellax battle automina with my centurian praevian. Narik
My fire raptor
My predators which have had converted plasma destroyers. (They are one of my next orders)

My spartan assault tank which usually carries terminators and will be perturabos ride until the shadowsword is aquired.
My iron havocs with lascannons.

Lords of war
I have a typhon heavy seige tank, lascannon sponsons are magnetised as not in picture.
My imperial knight. Magnetised at feet, waist, shoulders and end of gun for modifications and mobility.

Thats all for now folks.
Got perturabo in the post. Looking forward to painting him!
Infantry units to get next
Support squad with melta
Missile launcher havocs
Also getting a few more tanks before I call my army complete
Choosing between
Whirlwind scorpios

Keep a look out on the page for jamies write up about our istaan style game last wednesday involving 10000 points of heresy and three primarchs!!!

Death korps of Krieg

Hello everyone, Sam here, it has been a while since I have posted on here and wanted to share what I have been working on. My first loyalist (shudder) army. Also my first guard army. 
Over the past 10 months or so I have been slowly building and painting a Death Korps of Krieg army using the seige of Vraaks book. I have been attempting a unit a week but like we all do my attention and attitude towards painting blows hot and cold.
I was origionally drawn to Krieg due to their post apocalyptic / menacing appearance and thought that they would be perfect for a renegades army. However the more that I read and planned the army, the more interested in the Krieg themselves that I became. This lead me to my first order of death riders and the other more krieg units. This is not to say that i wont experiment with renegades as i have found some wicked looking zombie krieg models that I may incorperate in the future. I expect this army to play in a totally different style to those I currently use …

Echoes of War

Hello everyone, Sam here with a write up on another awesome weekend of dice and fun in Cardiff. Our hosts for the weekend, the Vale Renegades  are a group that we met over a year ago at a tournament in Bristol and since then have attended several of each other’s tournaments. Echoes of War was an ITC event with 34 competitors at the fantastic venue of Firestorm Games. This post is going to have a brief overview of the day as well as a few pictures and synopsis of all 5 games that I had over the weekend. So Sam, Bruce, Chris, Jamie and Jack were joined by Jack’s brother Scott (making them the Brothers Grimdark), Tom Baker from Code40K and Battered Bristles ( ( and Ian, made the 2 hour or so drive down to Cardiff for a weekend of games. A few of us had been to their last tournament Seeds of Destruction last September and were very excited about returning. Prior to the event, the Vale Renegades shared a list of all…

Games Workshop's Live Q&A; Thoughts On 8th Edition.

Hey guys, it's Bruce here with our first blog update in a long old while.

If you are reading this blog, chances are you know a thing or two about tabletop games, so you probably know that GW just officially confirmed what we all knew was coming: a new edition of Warhammer 40k!
I sat down this afternoon and watched GW's amazing live Q&A session and I've made notes on all the big changes they have confirmed will come with the new edition.

Lets take a look:

Big image behind the two hosts (Pete Foley, heading the team behind 8th ed and Andy Smilie, the head of the community team) is a large space marine helmet, blue on one side and green on the other. Probably hinting at the Ultramarine / Deathguard starter set?Andy repeatedly mentions that a huge amount of the rules have been created using feedback from the Facebook page and online forums like Bolter and Chainsword / Dakkadakka etc.Movement is changing. No longer blanket ruling different types of units (infantry, beasts, bike…
