I will update as soon as I have a better group shot, but in the mean time this is a 5,000pt force which was used a little while ago at one my apoc events.

Counterpoint: I am thankful that Forgeworld's sculptors are encouraged and enabled to follow their creative vision wherever the heck it takes them. It has allowed them to put together an epic team of designers and create the best collection of GW-style/themed Miniatures ever produced. This also means that what they come up with is sometimes surprising (Solar Auxilla) but always thoughtful and interesting. It also means that models aren't always produced in a logical order and sometimes holes in the range are never filled. I welcome this. I want Simon Egan to sculpt what he damn well wants to. I want Keith Robertson to grow into a top notch sculptor (Have you seen the face on Dynat? Watch your back Simon) in an environment where he has creative freedom. I am not entitled to shit. I may not love every design they produce, but I love a damn lot of them. I also know that a lot of the models I love, like dong bikes, aren't for everyone. That's the point. FW can stretch boundaries and try things that would never fly at GW. Trying to make things that please everyone breeds mediocrity, it breeds Centurians. It breeds flying Santa sleighs pulled by wolves. It leads to dudes like Alan Merrit being in charge.
Thanks for being awesome Forgeworld.

Brilliant concept, can not wait to see the pictures roll in over the year.
I have 10,000 points of Iron Hands (easily). Anyone with another 10,000 points and we can knock one of these off the list.

I am actually a little disappointed with this.

With the move of my gaming group to 8th and the - in my opinion - doubtful decision from Forge World to stick with the 7th Edition, I have seen a switch in my interest in the last couple of days or nearly weeks.
For me personally Horus Heresy is now (kinda) dead.
My main group always played 40k but I was able to play with them because we used the same basic rules. No one went totally nuts with the lists, so we always had nice and fun games. And it was fun to play against Orks or Eldar from time to time with my Word Beares Legion.
But now this is no longer possible. I'm now separate with my rules and armies. I can choose to continue buying HH stuff and build up my HH army, but I have no one that I can challenge. So I go back to 40k...
Which leads me to this thread...
I just wanted to say: Thank you!
You all are very nice gentlemen and I always loved to hang out in this community. I've seen some incredible armies and paint jobs here (Looking at you, Garro) and even found nice guys which send me stuff from the UK-only events. Most of the rules discussions were really civilized and straight forward. The event reports from you guys (especially Pendraig) were absolutely awesome and made me feel like I've been there.
But in the future I'll rarely visit here anymore. I won't quite but my focus will move back to 40k and so I won't post here a lot. I hope FW will switch to 8th edition someday and I'll see you all here again.
Until then: Goodbye from Lorgar and his Space Taliban!

I've not played that much but have found a really nice group locally and now have managed 2 games a week for the last month and a half, all good. Well, yes and no. Yesterday I had a great game with a great opponent which was lots of fun, lots of chat, etc however, he cared so little about a large part of his army that he literally dumped handfuls of unpainted models on the table in a pile and didn't even bother to put them flat on their bases, his excuse "well its a horde army isnt it" (I was playing against his guard) its bad enough that there was no paint on them but dumping handfuls of plastic next to the stuff I've taken time to paint feels a little 'off'.
We're playing shadow war and using heresy rules this evening and on our group chat last night myself and another player suggested we should set a date for warbands to be fully painted and that perhaps we should aim to WYSIWYG the models as far as possible (not being prescriptive on it but as close as possible). To say we got backlash was an understatement, there are literally 2 of us who are willing to paint stuff, we even had a player who said I don't care about miniatures its all about game mechanics and winning... Which I feel is 100% not the spirit of things like SWA.
Honestly I really hate playing unpainted stuff, but the level of resistance to it at the 2 clubs closest to me is really really high so I'm stuck in catch 22, I want to play but really hate playing against the stuff I'm getting games against, was wondering how you guys have dealt with this if you've come up against it. (to frame how bad it has been I played against the legs of a dreadnought the other day because the guy could not be bothered to build the rest of it.... )

I'm building up a mixed force of loyalists from Istvaan III, with the majority being Sons of Horus. Set-up is post bombardment after loyalists started creepin' outta their hidey holes. This will be a small group of hit and run loyalists using whatever is at hand to execute guerilla attacks in the murk of the dying planet. Focusing on squads of mixed Astartes - these are desperate times! 1850 with lots of jetbikes and javelins along with some standard tacticals and termies.
A Sons of Horus Forgelord is the only one who knows how to keep the hodgepodge of weird jetbikes and speeders in the air. Plus he got a single Deathguard tank fixed and running again with the help of its crew and lone Deathguard terminator. SoH Master of Signals knows how to work through the comm-noise and helps coordinate attacks and decodes traitor transmissions. His Orbital Barrage would instead represent hidden explosive booby traps.
I'll deposit various milestones, whims, and fancies here as I go!
Starting things off: A view into my mad methods. This is part of the reason why it takes me forever to get started on a project. I have trouble shutting down the organizer gremlin in my brainspace. Also, mixing armor marks, shoulder pads, and legions in one force demands order. THERE WILL BE ORDER!
Once the paper work was done I got stuck in on some actual assembly. It took about 18 seconds into cleaning my 1st model before the hobby gods demanded a blood sacrifice. Happens every damn time I start a project. (Just noticed that I totally put the fins on backwards...)

I posted this little project on another forum and was asked to post it here... so here it is.
Many years ago, I had to move house and made the mistake of throwing away the major part of my Squat force... leaving me with about 10 Squats. In later years, I swapped them for Grymn and was left with just one, single, solitary Squat model.
But once a Squat fan, always a Squat fan and a few months ago, I started trawling EBay for plastic Squats and managed to amass quite a few... but there was a problem. I didn't like the way the arms fitted... and the lasguns were too long... and there was a choice of only three heads... and...
So I decided that I would start a little Astra Militarum army and put my own spin on things. First up were a few test miniatures:
They seemed to go pretty well... so I then thought I'd make an Engineseer:
And an Engineseer needs toys so I built a pair of servitors (robots rather than cyborgs):
Then I decided to bite the bullet and put together a platoon:
And finally... a little bit of support from a Sentinel Squadron:
Now, the army doesn't end there... I am in the process of building the second platoon:
And have some Exo Armour (using Spacemarine Rules):
And that is where the army is upto at the moment. I have a lot of plans for future additions but I daren't look too far ahead or my mojo may be offended
Feel free to ask as many questions as you like... there are bits and pieces from all over the place
