The Black Crusade - Defiler Complete

View Comments
Greetings Minions, Son of Horus here. It's been a while since my last crusade but I mark my triumphant return with pictures of my recently completed Chaos Defiler. It took me over a year of off and on painting but I finally finished painting it. Enjoy the pics and comments are more than welcome. As always, DEATH TO THE FALSE EMPEROR!!

Imperial Guard: Stormtroopers WIP

View Comments
Hello all, Slick here. Today I have some WIP pics of my stormtrooper squad. I really prefer the stormtroopers over the kasrkrin models. This was quite an expensive squad to assemble as each blister of special weapons troopers (not pictured) cost nearly as much as 4 of the regular stormtroopers! Nevertheless, one unit of these guys will be quite sufficient. They still need some touching up detailing, then I'll hit them with devlan mud. Comments welcome!

Terrain: it’s worth fighting over.

There's no greater sight than two gloriously painted armies of miniatures deployed for battle. Or is there? How about two gloriously painted armies ready to wage war across a detailed and equally glorious gameboard? No matter what game you play, you'll have a far better experience with some great terrain to fight over. The new edition of Warhammer lists dozens of special terrain features that practically demand you use exciting terrain in your games. In games of Warhammer 40,000 Planetstrike terrain is a vital part of a defenders arsenal. While games of The Lord of the Rings are far more dramatic if you've created a part of Middle-earth to fight over. This week on we'll be celebrating the marvel of scenery and you're invited to join us.
