Talons of the Emperah - Adeptus Custodes Allarus Custodians (Conversion)

Unfortunately, I'm not a big fan of GW's Allarus terminator models and so I came up with the idea to build my own version. The conversions are based on the Forgeworld Custodes Terminators, then the axes of the Stormcast Eternal of AoS and Guardian Spears the normal Custodes for the castellan axes. For the Balistus grenade launcher, I took the wrist bolt pistols of the Blood Angels Sanguinary Guard. Hope you like them.

Talons of the Emperah - Vexilus Praetor

I returned to my Custodes again, because there will be a big battle with my friends at the end of the year in which I want to field them. To be honest, I struggled with painting the gold and getting it right in the past. It tuned out to be too dark and bronze-ish. Moreover, painting four, five layers of different metallic colours took much time. That's why I tried something new. Using a spray can gold colour from a DIY-store, Casanadora Yellow Shade and Agrax Earthshade Wash delivered good results. Adding some details lead to this:

I am very satisfied with it and it took such little time and effort. What do you think?

Adeptus Titanicus: Reaver Battle Titan

The first titan for Adeptus Titanicus is painted and ready for battle. It is a Reaver Battle Titan of the Legio Gryphonicus! 

I decided on Legio Gryphonicus for two reasons. First, I wanted to use different colours as the ones, I normally use for painting my 40k armies. Second, I wanted to have a connection between the Legio and my Tallarn Desert Raiders or Iron Hands. As it happened to be, Legion Gryphonicus took part on the Battle of Tallarn and has a mainly greyish colour scheme. What a nice coincidence and easy choice to make.    

The weapons are magnetized by the way, in case I want to change the current loadout in the future. Next up will be an Imperial Knight detachment from one of the two dedicated Knight Houses - Hawkshroud or Coldshroud.

Adeptus Titanicus: Civitas Imperialis - Desert Outpost

As soon as the first rumours of the game Adeptus Titanicus appeared, I was hooked. I always liked games in a smaller scale like "Epic: Armageddon" or "Aeronautica Imperialis", but sadly I never played it myself. Not this time!

But first, I focused my attention on the new terrain to get into the right mood. Hope you like it.

There will be titans.

Death Guard Kill Team - Part VI

Having painted my Plague Marine Champion the Death Guard Kill Team is ready for battle:

Click to enlarge.

1 Plague Marine Champion - Power Fist, Plague Sword - 19 pts. (Leader)
1 Plague Marine Gunner - Blight Launcher - 18 pts. (Heavy)
1 Plague Marine Gunner - Plasma Gun - 18 pts. (Demolitions)
1 Plague Marine Fighter - Flail of Corruption - 19 pts. (Zealot)
1 Standard Plague Marine + 4 Poxwalker

I used a normal Plague Marine from the Dark Imperium box and replaced his right arm with a Power Fist. He looks evil enough and like a leader with his antlers, but overall not too much over the top. Hope you like him.
