Magnetizing your special weapons

Good morning, everybody!

I have been painting yesterday - or rather today - until 4am to finish 4 new Iron Warriors, 7 special weapons and 2 arms for a Champion, but here I am, with everything finished.

Because my next tournament list will include a hell of a lot special weapons (woohoo, 2 squads of Chosen CSM!), I had a look into my glass cabinet and was astonished I only had 2 Flamers, 2 Plasma guns and 2 Melta guns... So I raided my bitz box and found enough special weapons and parts to assemble another 4 Iron Warriors. But I did not glue the special weapons to the arms - instead, I drilled holes in the undersides of the weapons and the right fists of the CSM (quite a fiddling!). Some super glue and carefully pressing the magnets into the holes (mind the magnetic poles!), I had 7 CSM with fully magnetized weapons.

They can all be swapped:

I did the same with the arms of my second Champion, so I can give him various equipment:

I hope this was a little bit of inspiration and help for you. Because why should you paint more models than you need when you can simply give a certain amount of painted models the wargear you want to field? :)

Warsmith Fabrilis - Destroyer of Strongholds

Today I present you my updated version of my Grand Company's Warsmith Fabrilis in his count-as version of Abaddon the Despoiler. His sword wielding arm is magnetized, so I still have the option to give him other weapons, such as a power fist, chain fist or another lightning claw and thus field him as a regular Chaos Lord in Terminator armour.


Warsmith Fabrilis's personal siege against the Imperium of Mankind has lasted for ten thousand years now and there's no end in sight as his lust for murder and terror can't be satisfied.

As he and his personal guard of Chaos Terminators pace across the surface of a besieged Imperial planet, crushing debris and shattered corpses of fallen enemies alike, the defenders see the personified death walking towards them. No Imperial fortress could withstand the Warsmith's iron grasp so far and the planets he elects to be besieged are doomed to be torn asunder by the Iron Warriors. Fabrilis rejoices in close combat slaughter as much as he does in precise bombarding and fire fights. Some members of his Chaos Terminator retinue are Veterans of the Long War themselves and have been butchering the False Emperor's servants for thousands of years.

The Warsmith wields two mighty chaos artefacts: the Talon of Perturabo, an archaic lightning claw given to him by his Primarch, and Zzrag'ryl,a daemon blade imbrued in an untold amount of Imperial guts.

It's only a matter of time when the Warsmith's gaze falls upon Terra itself. The time will come when Abaddon musters for the next Black Crusade and Fabrilis will answer the call.

The next 10 Ork Boyz

Good morning everyone!

Today I present you the next 10 Ork Boyz for my customer. I'm still having a minor struggle with the settings of my new camera, but I think the pics will become better and better. ;)

Next up will be 12 Killakoptaz, so stay tuned!

Ork Trukk #2 and #3

The next two Trukks for the customer were finished yesterday evening. As I have a new digital camera, the photos might be a little bit blurry because I have to find the perfect setting yet to achieve best possible pics.

More Chaotic terrain and some hills

I'm slowly beginning to paint all the terrain I built this year and thus I finished the 5 hills and my giant Chaos Star pierce yesterday:

My flat mate and I had a match today and the new terrain pieces were used:

A worthy temple for the Ruinous Powers

Greetings, fellow worshippers of the true lords of the Universe and those poor souls who haven't realized yet..

For the upcoming 200 pts. tournament on Saturday I painted the Chaos Temple I built many months ago. It will serve as my army's display base at the tournament and also as a terrain piece with house rules for battles in my appartment among friends.

Many more photos after the jump!

The next big commission army

Hello you guys!

The last two days I had some thoughts about a "dark" colour scheme for my customer's next commission army and after presenting three different ones to him I can now present -you- his choice:

It is the same customer as for the Daemons I've been painting. I have lots and lots of sprues and boxes of Space Orks lying around here already and once he gets back from his vacation he'll send me the next batch. So I guess it's going to be yet another enormous commission for me!

10 Ork Boyz and 3 Pikk Ups are already built and the painting will start in October as I have to finish setting highlights on the chitin of 4 monstrous Tyranid creatures of an aquaintance before.

Stay tuned for more Ork power to come in the near future!

Chaos Reinforcements

Hey guys!

Yesterday, I painted four close combat Cultists of the Dark Vengeance box after I converted them slightly:

As I've been playing the PC game Outlast recently, especially the Cultist with the scarred and bare upper body reminded me very much of one of the psychopaths from that game.

They are meant mainly for my 200 pts. Kill Team I'll be fielding on a tournament at the end of this month:

12 Cultists
- CCW + autopistols
- 1 Heavy Stubber [+1 BS]
1 Champion
- Shotgun

2 Chaos Terminators
- 1 Power Sword
- 1 Power Maul [+1 W]
1 Chaos Terminator Champion [Leader]
- 1 Power Axe

1 Chaos Spawn
- Mark of Nurgle [4+ Invulnerable Save]

Total: 200 pts.

The rules of the tournament are quite easy: every model in your force acts for itself. You get to upgrade 3 models to be specialists, i.e. they get a [bonus] you can choose from a list. Also, as long as your [Leader] is alive, every model can use his Leadership for Morale Checks which you have to take if you suffered 75% or more losses. All your models can allocate their shots and attacks on as many models as you want to etc. There are some more rules and it's a very interesting game format overall. Also, it's a friend of mine who will be hosting the tournament. I'm really looking forward to it.

Tyranids Hierophant

After many, many hours of work my latest commission work is finally finished: a Forge World Hierophant for the Tyranid Hive Fleet of an aquaintance of mine.
The colour scheme was predefined by him. Ranged weapons arms are still to be added and magnetized by customer.

Battle of the Blogs

Hey guys! Long time no read. But today I have something very special for you. Goatmoerser from Aleatorblog paid me a visit ~2 weeks ago and we had a fun 500 pts. match with our armies: his IV Argos and my Traitor Guard.

The following battle report was written by Goatmoerser, so all credits go to him. Enjoy reading it and looking at the cool pics!

What to do with insomnia

I wasn't able to sleep well last night and lay wide awake most of the time. At 5 am I finally decided to get up. And as this afternoon I'm going to meet Goatmoerser, an aquaintance of mine from Aleatorblog, for a 500 pts. match and some beers, I decided to paint a model I need for my army list - a Chimera transport!

I simply don't feel good playing with unpainted miniatures and Goatmörser feels the same way. And as we're planning on doing a battle report of our match, it was beyond all question not to paint the Chimera.

Perry Miniatures

My latest commission work: 40 cavalry and 80 infantry models from Perry Miniatures' "War of the Rose" range for a friend of mine.

I wonder what his plans are with that many copper statues. :)

Bloodcrusher of Khorne - the last one

The last Bloodcrusher of Khorne for my current Daemon army commission got finished yesterday evening. The last thing to paint now is an Exalted Chariot of Slaanesh.

Dire Wolves

The next 9 miniatures for the customer got finished today: Dire Wolves
It's only 9 because in one of the sprues one head was missing and the customer said it was okay if I only painted the 9 complete ones.

Seekers of Slaanesh

Yet another unit for my customer got finished yesterday evening: 10 Seekers of Slaanesh

Next up will be:
- 10 Dire Wolves
- 1 Bloodcrusher of Khorne
- 1 Chariot of Slaanesh

It has been quite a while, but that's because these fellows have a sh*tload of horns and eyes that had to be painted...
