“I am Alpharius” part 16. Sleeping giants.

Slow month, not done much except the two cultist champions. But started working on a pair of Leviathans last weekend. More photos to follow this weekend.

“I am Alpharius” part 15.

Just a small update, painted up two of the chaos guardsmen from the Blackstone fortress box set to count as cultist champions. One is slightly converted with a head swap & tau trophy, the other is bog standard. Happy with how they have come out. Will probably paint up the remaining 12 guardsmen at some point if I do decide to make another cultists blob unit.

Maelstrom Of War: Spoils of War. Alpha Legion V Ultramarines 2500 points.

Have been meaning to share these photos for a while now, but have unfortunately contracted Nurgles rot also known as man flu. Anyway had our final game of the year on the 1st of Dec. As it was our last thought we’d up the points limit to 2500.

Lots of units on the table and surprisingly probably one of the fastest games we’d played.

Really fun game but all went to ruin by turn four for the Alpha Legion with the heads of the Hydra removed, the remainder of the force withdraw into the shadows.


Wow December already!

Just a quick one, a good friend gifted me a box of Ryza ruins last month, just thought I’d share the current progress. Just need to add a few little details but pretty much done.

Also finally got a game coming up next week. Long overdue. Will probably be the last game of the year so going to make sure it’s a big one.

“We have prayed to the Lady, she has given us her Blessing. Ready your lances and charge!” Part 1.

So finally after much delay I’ve started to focus on the Bretonnian AOS project, currently aiming for a 1000 points list fully painted before the end of the year, but will expand to 2000 points next year.

I’ve magnetised & textured 29 bases. Also have base coated & dipped 28 horses. This took much longer than planned due to having a cataclysmic F up at the end of October.

I had tried using nail art stencils to apply patterns to the horses caparisons but the quality was so poor I had no choice but to strip the miniatures and start again. Due to the time it took to get back to where I’m I do not think I’ll be trying it again. I’m now looking for Fleur de lys decals/transfers. If anyone has information on where to buy these it would be much appreciated.

But anyway so far happy with the results.

“I am Alpharius” part 14.

Small amount done with the Alpha Legion this month, added some weathering to the fireraptor exhausts and the cape of the chaos sorcerer. Also magnetised the clutists bases.<<I’ll update this post soon with the fireraptor & cultists very soon>> also have some plans for the next expansion of my Alpha Legion and will be putting an order in end of nov or early dec.

Hobby slump…

Sorry been a while since posting, I’d hoped to have more to share. The beginning of October I’d been working on my Bretonnian project, I’d painted up 24 horses and added some stencil work but unfortunately I’ve had to strip them as I wasn’t happy with the end result. I think this has put me in a bit of a procrastinating mood. Something I’ve not experienced since being back in the hobby…

So unfortunately only a few photos to share, a few more details added to the Chaos Sorcerer & Dark Apostle, mostly just decals & couple highlights. Also Louen Leoncoeur arrived last week, so that was nice, shame he is made of finecast.

Maelstrom of war [Beerhammer]

The second game was an interesting one, as we decided to trial a three way game. 2000 points of Alpha Legion V Ultramarines V Farsight Enclave. Playing Maelstrom of War.

Honestly the results are quite vague, but it was a victory to the Ultramarines, followed by Alpha Legion & third place to Tau. This was a very long game, we started at 9pm and finished [Gave up / fell asleep] at 8am. But was a really funny evening, lots of beer & pizza, great time.

Secure & Control 3. Alpha Legion V Farsight Enclave.

Had a bit of time off work recently and got a few games in, unfortunately this wasn’t documented very well.

The first game was 2000 points Alpha Legion v Farsight Enclave, secure & control. This game was unfortunately called at turn 4 due to time constraints. We called it a draw due to myself holding two objectives & having line breaker.

With the Tau having slay the warlord & two objectives.
