Organized Chaos: More Forge World Warp Cultists — October 12, 2018

Organized Chaos: More Forge World Warp Cultists

After a nice change in pace that the Red Scorpions presented it was time to return to the Warp Cult. This batch represents much of the remaining ‘line infantry’ troops.

As a note, I have had the Forge World Renegades & Heretics line for many years. I cannot sing their praises enough. With that said I was saddened when the line was discontinued. I recognize that most took notice of the strange array of Horus Heresy era-Astartes, Solar Auxilia and Mechanicum cuts, but it was this and the death of the Elysian product line were far more disappointing to me. I hope the Death Korps of Krieg have a few more years of life in them before they too are retired from production.

Enjoy!

Kill Team: Red Scorpion Reivers — October 7, 2018

Kill Team: Red Scorpion Reivers

Disclaimer One- Painting progress has certainly been slowed by my son and I adding a puppy to the mix. My three year old selected and named the now 14-week old Chihuahua-Poodle puppy… ‘Andi the Girl’. Chipoodle? Poohuahua? Anyways…

Disclaimer Two: This is far more of a strange factoid then anything else. It occurred to me that in spite of having been (on and off and on and off again) involved with 40K since the Second Edition. In all that time I have never actually completed painting a member of the Adeptus Astartes until now.

Ironically enough, they are not even for me but for a local store.

This particular Kill Team originated from the ‘Fangs of Ulfrich’ starter set. While some might suggest, based upon the accessories that they were intended to be Space Wolves. As I am likely to disregard any accessories and box-art and due to my appreciation for all things Forge World, they swiftly became Red Scorpions.

This allowed me to break out some old copies of Imperial Armour books such as The Amphelion Project and the original Vraks Trilogy. These reference books in addition to some creative interpretation for including a red face-mask for the Sergeant led to the final results.

Obviously, as the included scenery was industrial in nature, they were painted yellow to match the Forge World Nester esthetic I utilized for my Skitarii projects.

Enjoy!

Organized Chaos: Forge World Renegades Special Weapons & Shotguns — July 26, 2018

Organized Chaos: Forge World Renegades Special Weapons & Shotguns

I am back again with another update on the Warp Cult. This batch represents a Heavy Stubber Team, three Melta-Gunners, three Plasma-Gunners and the balance of troops are armed with Shotguns. The now discontinued Forge World Renegades & Heretics make the bulk of the force with the Shotgun-armed members converted from Forge World Cadian Veterans and a few miscellaneous other bitz added for good measure.

Enjoy!
