Death Korps of Krieg 81st

Hey guys Sam here, wanted to put a few pictures up of my current project.

Decided to start an army which has always appealed to me but was above my ability to paint. Its going to take some time to complete but I hope to improve my painting skills and end up with an army of which I am proud to put on a tabletop.

Its worth noting that I do not like decals and stencils are in the post for unit markings. 

So I started off by buying a second hand basilisk to test my paint scheme for the armour.


Using the forge world weathering powders really impressed me here.
Alas using a Siege regiment I cannot use the basilisk so will be buying a Colossus to replace this.

I then went on to tackle a command squad consisting of:
Commander


Standard bearer


Master of ordnance


Heavy weapon team


Commissar

These units were really fun to paint, I based them similarly to the daemons and warriors so they can look good together.

Then I began painting an infantry platoon. I have not used the standard infantry models and instead used their more armored counterparts. I believe they look a bit better.


The watch masters were also fun with their combat weapon.

One of the first models I bought was the quad mortar and crew. I love the crew that come with this intimidating cannon and look forward to getting a second. (And two heavy mortars)


My most recent purchase was a leman russ. I have always liked these tanks and the sheer amount of weaponry they can carry is staggering.
Mine is kitted with two multi melta's, vanquisher cannon with mounted heavy stubber to make it twin linked and lascannon


My aim is to use this model as a danger close unit for killing knights / land raiders etc

Thats all of which I have painted at present. I am working on my first of three squads of death riders at the moment and have a Hades drill with engineers waiting to be done next. 

I hope you enjoy, please leave comments or feedback below.

Confessions of a Warhammer Wife

Bruce’s obsession with Warhammer was only revealed to me during our second year of dating. We had been together a long time by then – had even lived together for the majority of that time while at University. And still I didn’t know about this one aspect of Bruce’s nerd-dom. When Bruce and I first began dating I was fully aware of – even besotted by - his nerdy credentials. Together we had played hours of Halo 3 and Mario Kart, swapped manga and even visited the cinema for a solo late night screening of Star Trek. Yet this did not prepare me for what would become one of his main loves in life.
It all started back in 2012. We had been living separately back at our parents’ homes after University – me in Yorkshire, he in Worcester. I would often travel down to visit him and on one such occasion I was told of a new friend Bruce had made through work. Damien. They had apparently bonded when Bruce had taken on old model – a Tyranid Warrior I believe – into his …

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 …

Led kits and knights

Sam here with a small write up to review a product I have got recently which I think is just plain awesome.
I am starting an imperial Knight army at the moment and wanted to somethig to make them pop a little more (they will be bright yellow so needed something rather extravegant) so I had seen some pictures online of people who had added LED's to their knights and was hooked.
I searched the internet for some sources and found that it did not easily yield any obvious choices. A lot of expensive kits appeared for remote control cars and model train kits but I wanted something with one battery, switch and two led's without the hasstle of soldering myself.
Then I came accross this website 
http://www.smallscalelights.co.uk
Easy to navigate
Low cost
Range of products
Fantastic customer service! I had emails with instructions arrive upon payment as well as shilling information.
All in all it cost me around £10 for the kit including the battery I had to buy seperate.

Using the kit
The kit was …
