Stormraven – Liberata

During the Badab War the Sons of Medusa managed to salvage a number of vehicles from the Lamenters chapter. Being skilled reclaimers, their tech priests were able to get an impressive number into service. One highlight was the Stormraven, Heretic’s Folly, which was recovered with only minor engine damage. The Iron Thane Vaylund Cal himself assisted in the rites to appease the venerable machine spirit. After limited trial combat, the newly christened Liberata now is used by the chapter for the for remote insertion and fire support for its Terminators.

Hunter/Stalker plus Centurions

I’ve finished up the Hunter/Stalker as well as 3 Centurions. It was a nice breakup from painting red and metallics.

First game of 7th Edition

I loved it. Pretty familiar, but we tried out one of the new missions using the tactical objectives. Absolutely great. Really made the game more interesting than kill each other or contest last minute and hope the game ends. I took a combined arms list of Lamenters primary with Sons of Medusa allies plus an Imperial Knight. Mephiston was a beat stick getting off Iron Arm plus Warp Speed almost every turn. Strength and Toughness 9, with 8 initiative 10 attacks! He would mow through whatever came near him.

We did play a bunch of stuff wrong I’m sure, but I’m feeling really positive about the addition as long as you have a nice conversation before hand on what kind of game you want to play.

Rhino and Tactical Squad

Finished up a Rhino to go with the tactical squad. This was a test model to see how I wanted to do the vehicles up. I’ve chosen to go with more green with black highlights, rather than the mostly black with green slashes that appear in the Badab war book.

1000 points for Zone Mortalis

I’ve finished up my 1000 point Zone Mortalis force for the Independent Characters Hobby Challenge!

Contemptor Dreadnought

I’ve finished my Contemptor Dreadnought! The model is absolutely gorgeous and goes together really well. I might add some weathering and battle damage later down the line, but I’m really pleased with it so far. I wish all of the dreadnoughts in the game were this size as they are a lot more imposing.

Dreadnought completed

Made a little progress on the Sons of Medusa. I painted up a Dreadnought. I’ll be adding a Venerable and Contemptor Dreadnought to the army to keep with the theme of the Sons of Medusa. I’m having trouble concentrating on the marines though as I recently acquired about 5000 point of Ogre Kingdoms and quite frankly am enjoying playing Fantasy more than 40k right now.

Terminators WIP

I’ve gotten a lot of work done on a squad of 5x Terminators.  Really happy with how they are turning out and I like the basing.  I still need to get the custom shoulder pads, and have the weathering and some detail work to get.

First 5 Tactical Marines

So I have the first 5 marines for the army “done”. I think I’m going to go and clean the white helmets up and do some weathering when I have everything I need to do that. Featured here is the 3D printed shouler pads that I ordered from here. I’m really happy with how they came out and they really add to the army making them look unique.

Rhino – WIP #1

Here are a few WIP shots of my first vehicle for the Sons of Medusa. I wanted to test the vehicle color scheme so that I could easily reproduce it on the rest of the army. I’m really pleased so far, except for the blacks. The grey edge highlight is sloppy and does’t feel right for the model. I’ll try and figure out how to do it better. I also still have some detail work and washing/blacklining to work on, but I think the color combination is nice.
