Blah tired. Lots of sculpting work was done tonight, I'm about done putting all of the finishing details on the first 20 Heretics and the True Scale Chaos Lord who will be used in place of Straken for the army is coming along ridiculously quickly. I'll post pictures of them soon, hopefully tomorrow.
So now onto the point of this post, here is the list that I'm currently fooling around with for my Heretics army. Its themed around the fluff for the Word Bearer's traitor legion; always my favorite amongst the bad guys. According to that fluff they corrupt and convert the populations of entire worlds to their causes and then send wave after wave of raving mad cultists at their enemies before they ever even take to the field.
The list includes both Straken and Yarrick for their bubble effects and as and excuse to make Chaos Space Marine models for the army's commanders. I know, Yarrick has a 4+ save and not a 3+, whatever. The army deploys as two platoons that have 20 man blob squads with grenade launchers and lascannons; grenade launchers being a theme for the army ALA dawn of war 2. In front of them is a 50 man conscript squad that acts as a human shield and intermixed with all of this are the units of rough riders, the ogryns, and the suicide bomber demo charge teams.

Again sorry for the lack of a recent update, I'm currently out in Minnesota visiting with family for Christmas. But never fear, today as a special Christmas treat I bring you a file from the archives, the Ultramarines Honor Guard for the Truescale Space Marine Army that I did on commission.
So To start things off here is my favorite, the Ancient bearing an awesome forgeworld banner.

Well it was a short an easy deployment overall, none of my guys were harmed and we acchieved our mission and closed down Victory Base Complex in Baghdad. So this is my first full day since being released, a lot of projects are going to be in the chute now as I've had PLENTY of time to plan out what I want to do next. Things that I will be working on starting shortly are: A massive the Lost and the Damned army. The main visual theme to start will be a 120 or so man bunch of chaos heretics from the dawn of war series. Also big features will be chaos ogryns based from minotaurs and roughriders based off of chaos spawn. Later there will be a large contigent of mutants as well as a company of both the blood pact and the sons pf sek from the guants ghosts series. I will also be reworking the landraider main battle tank conversion, I'll start over with more advanced techniques and a much refined overall design. The end goal of is would be to make a fully castable kit that I could sell. There are a few other things on the back burner for now, but those are the big ones at the moment. Now I just need to stop buying stuff, I think that I have spent 3 grand on miniatures, modeling suppkies, and better casting devices/more resin and silicon. So yeah, hopefully I'll have some pictures to show off on a week or so. Its great to be back.
