Welcome back!

While I haven’t been posting for some time, I have been quite busy.  Lots of painting and terrain making.  Over the coming few days/weeks I’ll be posting up pictures of what I’ve been up to.  Generally speaking, its been a bit of 30k, and a bit of Epic.

This post is one I’ve been wanting to do for some time.  Seriously.  Ever since I saw the Ferrum Mori Death Head Titan Maniple in Book I of the Horus Heresy series, I knew I wanted one.

However doing one in 40k scale is seriously crazy (I did consider it at one stage though…).

Presently, I’m going through a big Epic Armageddon phase (as well as GW boxed games – GW, you’re doing it right).  So naturally, reproducing this Maniple in 6mm was not only more economical, but also more practical.  Now, I actually bought these Titans waaaay back in August 2015!  So that is how long they’ve been sitting around in various states of un-paintedness.  As some of you may know, I’m not one for having unpainted models just sitting around.  So it really has been bothering me.

Another reason I delayed getting this Maniple finished was I heard a rumour that a 6mm Warlord was getting produced….

Ok, so lets get to the pictures.

A nice family shot, don’t you think?

In the front row, we have (from the left) Warhound Sothis, Warhound Carrion Crow, and Warhound Blood Wolf.

In the second row, we have (from the left) Reaver Dread Wake, Reaver Myrmidon Rex, and Reaver Ferrum Mori.

In the third row, we have (from the left) Reaver Mortmain, Warlord Manus Mortis and finally, Reaver Hand of Ruin.

So a few close ups.

I hope you enjoyed looking at this as much as I enjoyed painting them.

Expect to see a few more posts over the coming days.  You won’t be disappointed.

Please feel free to leave your comments/remarks.

Until next post, take care.
