Blood Angels Revisited

Updating this blog is deffinately not my strong side these days. But as things happen I have once again entered a 40K 2nd Edtion Challenge at Dr. The Vikings Cowabunga Journal and this time I decided to do something with my Blood Angels.

It has been going on for some time, so I will just post some of my pictures here and maybe make a bigger update about all my 40K armies at a later point. Who knows?

New and old characters to lead my forces.

Here we have a Chief Librarian in Terminator Armour, another Librarian in Power Armour, my Space Marine Captain in his Terminator Armour and Power Armour respectedly and second in command my Lieutenant when a Captain is not needed on the battlefield.

Chaplain for the spiritual inclined killing machines.

Veteran Marines led by a Veteran Sergeant.

"Spades" Squad Tactical Marines led by a rookie Sergeant.

Capaint and Librarian.

Some tank back up for bigger campaigns.

Warhammer 40K 2nd Edition Challenge March 2022

I guess I forgot to post in February about my Genestealer Cult progress, but then again my February entry was a little boring, so here you can have two months in one.

For the third month I finished the second Brood Brother Squad, armed with laspistols and various hand weapons, they are led by a Genestealer Hybrid Neophyte. I also painted the Patriarch, but as I was about to start the Patriarch I noticed he had some damages which would take me longer than planned to repair, so instead I took my old (already painted) Patriarch and gave him some touch up and did some more work on the base. This was not what I intended since I wanted to paint a second Patriarch in green instead of blue, but that one goes back in the pile for later. The most important here is to actually end up with a playable army.

Full scale occupation

As bonus I finished a Commissar, which have no entry in the codex, so he will probably just ”count as” Brood Brother or be part of campaign plots and such. I also painted a Brood Brother with a Plasma Gun and made a bit touch up to some World Eater Marines for Allies.

Last month I did the Genestealers, the backbone of the Cult. Some ended up great, others not so much. So as usual...

So to get on track with the backstory here: Tef Dupont had managed to proclaim himself Governor to the Eastern Autonomy of Khardishian Prime, naturally the non infected part of the population was nor really satisfied by this and preassure was rising in the regional Capitol; New Dos Angeles (Former Twin Angels). To ensure the not so loyal Citizens of his good intentions Tef Dupont sent for Imperial intervention to ensure the population, this turned out to come in the form of a Commissar, more troops of the Khardashian 8th Company and even a small number of Space Marines of the World Eaters Chapter. If anyone had voiced their discontent before no one said a word now, at least not in public… To be continued…

Warhammer 40K 2nd Edition Challenge January 2022

So I kind of forgot to mention here that I entered the 3rd installment of the 40K 2nd Edition Army Challenge. This time around my brushes will be painting a Genestealer Chaos Cult.

For this month I finished the first Brood Brother Squad, armed with lasguns and led by a Genestealer Hybrid Acolyte and for a HQ model I painted a Cult Icon Bearer. As a bonus I also painted a Cobalt-1 miniature for a corrupt local despot.

The Brood Brothers will act as cannon fodder to protect the important Purestrains and Hybrids when the upheaval Begins. 

It is only buisness.

The story so far: Tef Dupont has managed to proclaim himself Governor to the Eastern Autonomy of Khardishian Prime, by some strange ways of manipulation, bribes and brute force. Along the way he procured the backing of the Khardashian 8th Company. Governor Dupont has set up base in Twin Angels and the Khardashian 8th Company is slowly digging in around the city.

As usual there is a lot more fun 'n games at the source: Oldschool c0wabunga

Orktober 2021

 According to official Ork lore every month is Orktober...

Nob 'Umin Gut'Nasha and his Death Skull Boyz.

Like all my other 40K and Rogue Trader stuff it is something I paint on and off from time to time. So with all that crazy 40K 2nd edition going on I found out that I have enough Orks to field a small 1-2000pts army. I devided them up in Mobs and it seems to work out.

First finished unit is some Death Skull Boyz. I always liked the blue face look, but not so much the raggedy look of the patched together clothes and gear. So my Death Skull Mob has the blue faces, but chose to wear a rather uniform look of military style green and brown colours.

Ork Minder.

This is a random Ork I painted during summer. He only has one ear and is wearing purple outfit, he is clearly crazy, so I have decided to make him a minder for my Wierd Boy. Eventually he will get a banner.

The nasty lads.

Power Armour Nob will join a unit of Evil Sunz Nobs and Thrugg has been degraded to a simple Ork Minder after he joined the Ork Big Mob. Maybe that will change in the future....
