Hi guys. 

 

I was about to post in my old SW thread but realised that that is an army I sold quite some time ago, and the SW army I have now is nothing like it. I have upped my painting a little, and made some new units and army plans. So here we go with a new thread about the new army. I have a lot of it already done, but I'll post here as I take pictures of them and produce new units. I'll also put my Custodes army here, as it is mainly planned to be an allied detachment to my Wolves, altough it is now already quite big :P 

 

Anyway - first to the fray is my new Praetor that I painted yesterday. I'm pretty happy with the look he got, and I'm gonna do the beard thing with my deathsworn as I build them as well.

All pictures will be take with my iPhone 6, so dont expect the best quality :P But yeah. Feel free to comment with tips and suggestions.

I just gasped at how awesomely Viking that mini looks. Looking forward to seeing more melding between dwarves and wolves!

Thanks guys. Most of the models I already have are just regular helmeted astartes, but since this beard thing worked out pretty well I'll have to try it out on builds in the future ;) Here are two more HQ guys. I also have a Praetor/Centurion with great frost blade but he is packed in the armytransport so he'll get facetime some other time. =)

And a bonus flamestom dread. I've used him a couple of times but it's hard getting good use out of him, even in ZM, sadly. I like him on paper however, so will continue trying =)

So while I havent had the wolves out for a while, I needed to change my Custodes boss man. I made him before the rules came out, and make him with just a big sword. But that doesnt fly now, so he needs a paragon spear and shield. This is what I ended up with. Made a long handle for the sword/spear, and added a shield in his free hand. Hopefully my opponents wont have a problem with it not having the bolter anywhere.

The axe is from the 40k SW char that came in a box set a while ago, I think. I had it in my bitz box =) 

 

I need your help with a custodes Q, guys! What do you think of this as phyrrite (left) and adrasite (right) spears for my guard squads?

 

0EA873BD-F32D-4E79-A8F1-20AC25F20546_zps

 

I quite like both of them. I have a bunch of the necron deathmark-guns, so I can make lots of melta-spears, but I have somehow misplaced my Skitarii sprues so I need to source some radium carbines if I'm gonna go down this road. 

 

What do you think?

Good. I've already made 3 more :P Wont have any hobby time until next week, but hopefully then I'll play a game with my Wolves so I can take some pics of the finished units.

Here is some new stuff. I got a Leviathan for cheap from a friend, so painted it up while testing some other ways of painting then my usual. Turned out pretty well. I have the other cc arm as well, and the stormcannon is incoming. I guess I'll have to get the melta-arm as well just to have it =) All magnetised ofc.

Thanks guys. I'm pretty pleased with him, even if he is a nuance brighter then the rest of my SW. :P More coming soon =)

New stuff. Beena long while since I posted here. I have been painting Russ as well as starting to repaint my tanks. But I dont have pictures of that yet. Right now I have pics of some builds:

 

Deathsworn (I know they are supposed to have Wolf Heads... I'll make the rest with that :P) as well as a Centurion/Rune Priest:

And then - Speakers of the Dead with great frost blades:

Not the best pic that last one. :( I also have 30+ marines taht are gonna be grey slayers/deathsworn. Just got my delivery of CC-arms from Kromlech yesterday, so I'll start building them today hopefully.

I have painted the Speakers, but got distracted from the Deathsworn. Built and painted a Command Squad to accompany Russ or my Praetor in a Land Raider/Dreadclaw.

They are just missing the banner for the guy in the back. I havent yet decided on how to do it...

Thanks!

Yeah, the dwarf face might be too much. They were the largest shields I had so they will have to do. =)
