2500pts House Makabius and DG Allies Completed

Image
Finally completed an army again! I got the Castigator done today despite a bit of a rampaging flu and posed these Makabius boys up with their allies, the Death Guard, for a patch giveaway by the Eye of Horus Podcast and the Radio Free Isstvan Podcast.
Will give it a few days but I'll try and tee up some games with the local crew next week and get playing again.

30k Death Guard - Leviathan, Tactical Squads and Veterans - Completed Pics

Image
Hey y'all,

I had to put the hobby biz away for a few months due to work and moving house but I just fired it up again and got some of the stuff I airbrushed back in feb/march finished.

I've still been updating my Instagram account from time to time too if you want to keep track of the WIP's and stuff. Check it out at https://www.instagram.com/bad.credentials.hobby/ with the username being bad.credentials.hobby.

Anyway started out getting a few infantry finished up, 2x10 Tac Squads and a Marksman Vet squad with Combi-plas and a Heavy Flamer, they join the 15 Lascannon Heavy Support marines as the bodies of my DG force.

I also got the always amazing Leviathan Dreadnought finished up, infantry are kinda meh but I love how this guy turned out and I had a lot of fun painting and weathering him.

I'm working on a Castigator Knight right now to finish off my House Makabius Knight army and am about half way along.

Anyway check the pics below and I'll have a few fresh pics o…

Calth Contemptor - Quick Repose

Image
Chopped this contemptor up in a few spots, drilled sockets and added ball joints, added real feet, made a chain fist, just generally tried to make it look like it was on a battlefield and moving, not just in a storage rack in the bowels of a ship.

Was just a quick hack and slash job, I want to get it on the table for the weekend. If I had a bit more time I would cut and bend one of the legs and rebuild the knee. But not back for a quick project aye.


Heresy Era Death Guard Lascannon Squads Completed

Image
I pulled my finger out and started painting some of the Death Guard infantry I showed earlier on the blog. I started with the more difficult to paint and assemble Heavy Support squads, with Lascannons (the local meta is staunch as shit, lots of Av14, super heavies and drop podding Leviathans). 
I have been running 7 and 7 man squads in test games but if I have more points available in larger games I will do 10 and 5 to make sure I can bully high value targets with the big squad and plug away at dreadnoughts and the like with the smaller one.
25 Tacticals to do next, then I'll paint the Castigator for myself as a treat.

Cheers Jack

Acastus Porphyrion and Atrapos couples photo.

3 Months apart between painting the Porphyrion and the Atrapos, got them to match pretty well. Lucky I took a few notes and a bunch of WIP's for myself to follow. Got a Castigator on the bench now who will join these guys in the next week or two.

House Makabius Knight Atrapos Completed Pictures

Yew! Just finished another knight, I think it came up pretty well, I tried to get it to match my Acastus as close as possible but it's been a few months so it's not exact. Still though, pretty happy with the matchy matchy. I also took a bunch of WIP's and kept meaning to post but I never got around to it, was too excited to finish.





Some new semi-DIY terrain for my table finished.

Image
In my new series, EAT FOOD MAKE STUFF, I built some new things!
I find the GW kits work best when you chop them up and add them to other things, like a Milo tin or a 710ml can of 'V' for example, it's also a lot better at LoS blocking too as most GW kits are pretty easy to see through. So yeah, knocked these two bits up and a couple little hill type things. 








I also got my BB team out of the foam and put them in the display case, pretty happy how these guys came out. Speaking of, I started a Dwarf team too tonight. I love the armour and most of the poses are pretty dynamic compared to the humans, orks and even skaven.
