And hellos I'm back! Time for a new painting/building blog! It will be based around a campaign we are doing at my local gaming club, so there will be some list building and the like! I will be building for the next coming years (Hoppefuly alot!) a SoH army with some dark mech allies! I hope youll enjoy my tread because I think I'll will!

The striving points:
- Make a vissually atractive army with lots 'o conversions/scratchbuilds
- A army that's pretty good on the field and looks good while doing so
- A army that follws the fluff with style of armor etc.
- A army with a whole backstory and tales about special characters/units
- Making a good Plog that you guys (and gals) can really enjoy!
- And of course getting back to work on models ofcourse! I had a little painting break because I'm always very pessimsic about my work (So please be nice!) (And for record, I'm still 14 soo keep in line with that, and I'm colour-blind, so don't judge me on that!)

Here is just a little start on the Dark Mech:

They will be used as Castallax battle automata!For the rest I'd love too hear some of your guys opinions about what I'm building and how I can make it even better! (I'll try to be posting every 100 views, soo tell your friends about this tread so you can get updates more quickly! (Wow that sounded almost as a advertismement!)

Probably the blue what they already have, but then darkened down alot! They are just basecoated and highligted/shaded. They will be done next week is my guess. I'll post some more pics tomorow! (BTW, is the pic guality good enough?)

This is a fun plog. Cool. Good to see you've done some normal guys, as the temptation to just do characters at the start is always very strong!

I like what you've done with the centurions; Any idea how they stack up against the FW ones size wise?
The effort you put into customizing the marines is great! What is the long chainsword about, can we get a closeup?

Good luck with all the heavy armor you've got coming!

Cool looking bots!
Did you use Centurions as a base?

30-03-2014, 15:23
Yes I did! They are centurions with their legs made longer and the body also a bit longer! I use them as castellax.

02-04-2014, 10:17
I love the vindi!

02-04-2014, 16:29
Thanks mate! It's cannon is from the Stompa! I'm pretty proud of him!

04-04-2014, 14:57
looks good so far asdrubael, just one thing:
(as lore fanatic) i wouldn't use as much transverse helmets as they are an terran veteran marking (and much of the terrans were wipe'd out during istvaan III). Cthonian Veterans/Sergeants used Topknots.
Keep it up =)

04-04-2014, 15:13
Well Atia:

I like the top-knot horse hair things to much for my sarges! They look much more imposing with them on! The normal top-knot looks kinda dull in my opinion, si I think I might stick with horse hair crown thingies!

Which of the Mk.-armour-upgrades is this? Is it Mk. III or II? :) I'm wondering as I'm thinking about getting it myself for my Night Lords.

27-04-2014, 10:22
It's mark 3 if I'm correct! Hope it helps!;)
