So...Killteam Commanders expansion was delivered today. I wasn't too excited by the 500th Store primaris mini. Very nice, but I didn't have a practical place for it in the collection. But, all the Commanders for Astartes in Killteam are Primaris...
...a bit of a dig into the bits box later.
Custom Primaris Captain in Tacticus armour with Stalker pattern bolt rifle: looks like a Killteam Commander now.
And given him a reason for taking his helmet off...
He leant against a wall and rolled a lho-stick with what he had borrowed from Commissar Yendl's footlocker. Taldac was sitting in the dirt, busy strapping on a new pair of boots taken from the barefooted carcass next to him. Slavro was industriously scalping the dead with a filthy knife, he knew a skintrader back in Rubble City. Disciplinary offence, thought Rojo, as he lit his roll-up on the flickering flames of a still burning corpse. That knife was in my kit two minutes ago.
Small beginning of my next big project. The first two scumbags for my Savlar Chem-Dogs. It's quite liberating being able to use such a wide selection of bits. No matter who the Chem-Dogs come into contact with -be they friend or foe-they always seem to find new gear just laying about. Can't wait to get more finished so I can get painting. Drawing some palette inspiration from the inmates of Fiorina 161 in Alien 3.
Spacehulk Terminator nearly done. Still need to base it. Not very neat really & I got bored painting it. So I’ll just do a basic base & get it over and done with. First model I’ve painted in a while so still in need of practise!
HOBBY UPDATE:: The fine people at ArtelW @artel_w have apparently also heard that it is #Orktober and are opening pre-orders next week for "The Iron Boss" 😁 That is one helluvah Warboss - seems to be to fluff scale of what a Warboss should look like 👍 There is also an excellent 350 degree render on YouTube if you have an interest. #artelw
A quickie-quick build and review of the one-day-only Primaris Lieutenant I picked up today for the Games Workshop 500th store celebrations. And yes, I found out after filming you were allowed to order more than one. Go watch!
A few shots from today's game: 1000pts, my Tyranids vs @nerd_du_jour 's T'au. A great first game; many rookie mistakes were made, but the hive mind will adapt and regroup 🐛
Also: the new Dark Sphere store is awesome!
