Assault Squad For The Hounds

I started this squad a while ago by base coating the squad with ushabati bone and a nuln oil wash.
Last night I got the 2 coats of white done.
Tonight I got the blue and other detail colours on as well, rather than go with a full helmet I added various yellow strips to the helmets to follow the codex.
Lastly I did the condenser coils in a bright blue with a white wash to try and represent the heat involved with Plasma.

20/01/18 WIP

Trying a version of the old purist squads for the Captain for the Ordo Astartes strike force. Captain is still roughed up, going to fix him together tonight.
The squad has had 2 coats of white, will do the blue tomorrow night.
The Hasslefree Miniatures Andrea has had the plasma pistol added, I'd already cut her original pistol off and fitted a bolt pistol so I broke that off and added the Primaris plasma pistol from the cyborg arm that I am using on the captain, I'd replaced that with a spare Cypher plasma pistol that I had.

2nd New Toy Today

2 new toys in one day! New phone with all sorts of stuff on the camera the front camera is 13 mega pixel for crying out loud, the back camera has a 3d option.
So first photos with my spanking new camera, and cropped down a bit. Open to suggestions on which head to use and will cut the bunny ears off the Khorne berserker head if I use that one. I also found a Cypher plasma pistol that I think I'll use on the arm and use that Primaris plasma pistol on the Inquisitor.

New Toy

The light around here has been bad for months so I bought a light box. Might need to add some stronger magnets to the sides though.

Road Trip!

I was very kindly allowed to borrow the Wigan GW 40k table for 10 minutes today, after spending nearly an hour chatting and buying some paints.
The Björn project, now to wait for my Ordo Chronos Inquisitors to get finished.

At Least I Didn't Collapse The Universe

This took a couple of hours to set up and dismantle and I took so long several of the Dreads fainted and a couple have  broken ankles so not everything is upright.
There's 69 dreads on the board and not much room for many more.
There's been suggestions that I take this and progress to a company's worth of Dreadnoughts , which I've, frankly, balked at and that's not just because I've made a vow to not buy any dreads this year, but there's storage issues as well.

Base Line For The Lion's Blades 1st and 2nd Company

Still working on my base lines for this year ,  I got out my 1st and 2nd Company, as well as my Dreads, all 69 of them, posting up tomorrow.
Onto the 1st Company, no plans to do anything with these, although I do now have 2 Tartarus Terminators spare.
My 2nd Company, minus the Nephilim.
With the move to 8th my bike squads are now under strength, so the plan is 2 bikes for each squadron and as the Land Speeder squadron can  now be taken in 5s I'll be adding 2 more of these, and maybe replace the demigryphs with bikes at some point. Will get at least one of the easy build versions and one of the full versions to compare the experience of working with them. The 6 bikes I will trust to ebay to provide, although I have found 2 bikes while I've been going through boxes the last few days, so I only need 4 bikes.
