Taros Campaign Prep – Scratch Built Tank pt 2


Preparations for the upcoming campaign continue, although there will be a brief hiatus for the rest of the month as I will be AFK for a short while on family duty. As previously mentioned, my Astra Militarum Imperial Guard are in need of armoured reinforcements, preferably of the free (or possibly EBay bargain basement) variety. Last months Leman Russ worked out quite well, and is in the queue awaiting painting, and the building of the second has begun in earnest. However, this week I have managed to complete the first ‘chimera’.

Painting Update 31/01/2018


A bit of a double post this one – not only is it a painting update to prove to the world that I actually managed to finish some models recently, but it is also part of my preparation for the upcoming Taros Campaign, which is plodding along nicely.

Painting Update 26/10/2017


While the Terrain and Lost Patrol stuff go off in their own directions, I have not been idle on the paining and modeling front. Having set my (rather ludicrous) targets for the 2017/18 Hobby Season I have decided to initially focus on getting the Dark Angels/Night Sentinels Battle Company up and running. While the bulk of this company was already completed for the Tournament last year there were a few glaring omissions from the fully fitted out 100 man strong company. The main one of these was the Assault Squads, and so I have set about amending this oversight.
