Archamus, Paretorian of Dorn, Master of Huscarls

Archamus, “The Last of the First”


Archamus could feel himself calling out orders, slicing the crisis up into portions, ringing each with the logic and experience of sixteen decades, reducing disaster to grains of action.

Huscarls of Dorn

“Archamus knew each of them, recognised them even through the layers of
Indomitus-pattern plate and the blur of his failing sight. They were his brothers, The Huscarls of whom he was master.”

Yes brothers! Huscarls of Dorn were clad in early version of Horus Heresy era Indomitus-pattern terminator armour! This might be a quite surprise for many of us but hey, it is all there, written by John French in 400 pages HH novel “Praetorian of Dorn“.

New Year`s resolutions

I must tell you something. I do not even have one! I mean, I have plans, goals and stuff to paint and assemble but I did not try to put anything heavy on my shoulder this year due to experience ^^ Personally I do not know any single player that did make some resolutions and had them finished 😀 Do you?

calvin-hobbes-new-years-resolutionsSo, I am going to take it easy: paint my whole 30k 3k points army that is prepared for Phall Conflict untill May and finish Mr. Lysander asap.  I am going to finally put all my 40k stuff I do not use on eBay this year and use those money for more 30k stuff ^^

Thats it. Next post gonna be about Phall Conflict and some WIPs with tanks 😀

How to do weathering and battle damage on tanks?

Mine first Predator tank is ready and some of you asked me a question about battle damage and weathering.

PREPARATIONS

First of all we need proper base. A solid layer of white spray (GW) and nice layer of yellow. I prefer to use a big short brush and use it as dry brush covering all areas yellow than to use watered down paint. Pros? With dry brushing big flat areas you got no bubbles, no paint thick lines, just plain nice colour 🙂

Imperial Fists Predator

Sprayed white and painted yellow Predator is waiting for the next step.

I was busy last few weeks with painting Blood Angels tanks and Word Bearers tanks commission and had reached the point where oils and weathering powders are a must. Here is my line of little helpers: Continue reading
