The XVI Legion the Warmasters Own.

Hi all Jamie 2 here been a while since I did a post so thought I would share what I have been up to lately. At the start of the year I had planned to finish my World Eaters however before I could complete that Betrayal at Calth dropped and I like many other gamers found that Heresey was more affordable than ever.  So armed with a copy of the box and some selection of forge world shoulder pads I got to building.  Then I hit a stumbling block what to paint them as, I could go with Luna Wolves but having already painted one predominately white army I didn't want to do another so Sons of a Horus it was. 


At first  I couldn't find a colour scheme for the green armour that I liked, the Forge World one didn't look right on my test models and all the ones online were to bright I wanted a deep ocean green so I started to experiment and eventually found one I liked. So today I thought I would share how I painted my Sons of Horus and show you all where the army is now.  


First up undercoat your model black


First up a coat of Incubi Darkness all over the armour don't worry about being too neat at this stage


Next a thin coat of Caliban Green so the Incubi Darkness still shows through


The finial stage for the armour is a wash with Athonian Camoshade, allow to dry.



 Next up a bit of detailing, go over the Bolter with Abaddon Black, the pipes and harness with Mechanicum Standard Grey and the metal areas with Leadbelcher.  Also at this point drybrush the Bolter with Mechanicum Grey.


Next up the armour trim with Glorius Gold the only non GW colour I used


Next up the eye on the shoulder pad the leather tassels and helmet crest in Memphiston Red


Skin in Rakarth Flesh


Next up the eye on the shoulder over the red paint a drop of Cassandora Yellow Shade to act as a wet palate then mixing red and yellow build up a fiery eye of Horus. 



A quick wash on the creat and head with a 50/50 black brown wash



Finially finish the eye on the shoulder pad in Abaddon Black and your done.

The army as it stands now









Next up some more armour and the big man himself Horus.

Confessions of a Warhammer Wife

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 …
