This old Games Workshop model is going to be used as a Sniper Bot for my Mechanica force. By adding a Spotter Drone, it will make a sniper team for use in Steam Wars.
This is a random Dark Angels Space Marine that I picked up out of a bits box years ago with no real purpose other than I liked the figure.
I have eventually painted him up to use in Rogue Stars. Armed with a massive two handed sword and a pistol on his holster, I reckon he has a Power Fist under his cloak.
I have been collecting Zoats for what seems like ages, keeping an eye out on eBay and buying if the price did not go to high. My plan had been twofold, firstly to make a No Limits army of Zoats and secondly to use them in a retro Tyranid army.
What encouraged me to paint up a test model model recently was to use one in Rogue Stars. Not very happy with the paint job on this one, the inking failed and ended up pooling everywhere.
I will have to start on some of the others, I think there are twenty-six more.
Buried in the Loft Full Of Lead was this classic robot from the early days to Warhammer 40K.
It had been painted before, many years ago, but at some stage I have given it a Nitromorse bath to start again. So now it has been repainted to use in Rogue Stars.
I have not played Warhammer 40k for quite a few years, which is a shame as I have a Blood Angels army that I really like. Games Workshop are releasing a new version this year, which will be available as a free download from the sound of it. I may just give it a go. Will it be 40k Age of Warhammer? They claim not in an FAQ released, but we will see.
I am not a fan of the current version, so I have some hope that the new version addresses some of my pet hates, especially around close combat.
As anyone who come here often will know, the Loft Full Of Lead contains many marvels, several of which are other 40k forces from the 1990’s that have not been out in a long time. Tiny Orks could be making a comeback.
These refreshed Mortificators should mean I have enough to use as a Brotherhood unit in my game on Thursday. Not particularly impressed with how theses turned out, black is the most difficult colour to paint. And white.
