The Emperor's Guard

Space Wolves pushed to one side as there was no way I was going to get them all done in time for the beginning on September without rushing them and as I am enjoying them too much that was not an option.  So reverted to my Imperial knights and trying to get them finished instead.  Far easier ask.....
Over the last week I have been working on Ixion (the Acheron) and Iapetus (the Lancer) and guess what........subject to the bases being painted they are both done and I have a substantial little force of knights to rock it at Throne of Skulls, will most likely take some of my other gear with so I can alter my list if knights are boring having never actually used them :D

First up Iapetus, the electrical effect on this guy's gear is far superior to Gungnir's Wrath

Then we have Ixion named after the man sentenced to spend eternity on a flaming wheel by Zeus
And then a group shot
We are the defenders of the sacred fruit bowl, none may have fruit in this house!

Wolves of Armageddon


Started working on the riders for the Thunderwolves.  Realised that I had used the wrong shoulder pad for the left pauldron making it somewhat a challenge to paint a Deathwolves Company marking on it, but having read some of the fluff it seems that there may be variations on the general theme so instead of a red pauldron with a black wolf head eating a white star I will do a red pauldron with a black wolf head and a white star behind the head and off to the upper left of it.  If anyone moans about it I will show them my face of mucho concern

Wolves of Armageddon

The thunderwolves are all done, sadly had a really busy week last week and they took about 4 days more than I would have liked, but hey ho what can you do, life is what happens when you have made other plans.

Wolves of Armageddon

Tester for the thunderwolves.......

Wolves of Armageddon

 Having decided to go to another Throne of Skulls in September I have set myself a entirely new 1750 point army.  In order to tie it in with my Armageddon themed imperial army I decided to go with Space Wolves, plus it means I can spend a vast amount of points on Thunderwolves and the like so I don't have to paint many models :D

Army is made up of the following


HQ - Wolf Lord (thunderwolf, TH/SS)

Troop - 5 Grey Hunters (BG, BP, CCW)

Fast - 3 Thunderwolf Cavalry (3 SS, 2 CCW, 1 TH)


Elite - 5 Wulfen (4 Great Frost Axes, 1 Dual Frost Claws, 1 Frang Launcher)

Company of Fenris

HQ - Ironpriest (Thunderwolf, T/H)

Elite - Lone Wolf (TH/SS)

Elite - 5 Wolf Guard (5 SS, 1 Frost Axe, 1 TH, 3 CCW)

Fast - 3 Thunderwolf Cavalry (3 SS, 2 Frost Axes, 1 TH)

Heavy - 6 Long Fangs (1 ancient, 5 lascannons)

Spent last week building and all is ready to paint

Have some pictures of grey plastic.....

Flamey Jeff The Robot of Death

So in order to get over the 5 losses to varying forms of space hairdresser at Throne of Skulls at the weekend I decided to treat myself..........To another knight, because like pokemon got to catch them all or some shit 

Name wise I am leaning towards "Ixion" at the moment.
