Imperial Fists Contemptor #1

After the heresy doubles I took a hobby break and looked at what I could add next and settled on a contemptor. A small challenge started on bolter and chainsword, perfect motivation to get started again. View post on imgur.com Some pre-shading and main colour for the shoulders Masking and main colour applied. Contemptor weapons Progress so far, I have some learning objectives I want … Continue reading Imperial Fists Contemptor #1

Horus Heresy Doubles

My list was using Chosen Duty Delegatus Apoticary 2 Tactical Vet squads with 2 Heavy Bolters (each), PF on the sergeant and a Rhino with a pintle multi-melta Legion Heavy support squad with Lascannons All the characters had a Artificer armour, which came in very handy. Game 1 – Against two Iron Warriors. One of my Rhino’s has earned a name after weathering a round … Continue reading Horus Heresy Doubles

The road to Heresy Doubles 6 – painting dry run

I was nearly ready to start base coating this morning but decided on a dry run instead. Cleaning an airbrush can take some time so I want to spend the maximum amount of time laying down paint I can manage. The dry run showed me I didn’t prepare my model space as much as I could. I had all the bases lined up but I … Continue reading The road to Heresy Doubles 6 – painting dry run

The road to Heresy Doubles 5 – Armoured support, 10 minute progress

Searching for some Rhino sprue’s for my veterans I found two assembled and based rhinos. I had these painted up for my Crimson Fist 40k army but I think I’ll rebase them for 30k IF. Recolour the majority in black, paint over some parts with ochre and then yellow for some nice contrast. I’ll try to replace that techmarine head with another HH era style … Continue reading The road to Heresy Doubles 5 – Armoured support, 10 minute progress

The road to Heresy Doubles 4 – 30 minute Hobby Progress

More today! Getting the bases glued to something, this will make them easier to airbush evenly and then to paint afterwards. I found I was missing one after a count, thankfully it was hidden in the corner of my cheapo-DIY airbrush box. 60 bases ready and sorted. Hoping I’ll have them all basecoated in the next post or a large part of them. I’m going … Continue reading The road to Heresy Doubles 4 – 30 minute Hobby Progress

The road to Heresy Doubles 3 – 10 minute Hobby Progress

Lining up the first squad. Some weapons need to be removed and replaced with proper ones. I’m glad I used superglue on these guys instead of poly, those things just snap off 🙂 I have to add a bolt pistol to the Sergeant and a second heavy bolter. Also a vexilla. I have the 40k marines with heavy bolters as a backup in case I cannot get … Continue reading The road to Heresy Doubles 3 – 10 minute Hobby Progress

The road to Heresy Doubles 1 – 10 minute Hobby Progress

I’m on the hobby road to finishing the 30k Imperial Fist army I started last year. The marines saw three games of unpainted shame, the next game they’re in will be with fully painted honours. I have limited time most days so I’m aiming for at least a 10 minutes hobby progress each day with occasional 30 minute and 1 hour painting sessions. The 10 … Continue reading The road to Heresy Doubles 1 – 10 minute Hobby Progress
