Crimson Fists Devastator Reinforcements

Following my work on some classic models and retro 1980s painting over the last few posts I have returned to something a bit more contemporary this week...
A couple of years back I did a few five man devastator squads for my Crimson Fists Army. My intention was always to eventually increase these to full size units however with the appearance of the new Primaris Marines in mid-2017 this never happened...

Genestealer Cult Force - 1989/1992

Having fallen back in love with Space Hulk recently and having completed a new (old) Blood Angels Terminator Squad for this venerable game I decided to take the opportunity to revamp my Genestealer Cult as well.

Followers of my blog will know that I have been gradually building this Force up over the last decade or so and as such it has a models that have been painted at varying stages in my own hobby development process/evolution.

Blood Angels Terminator Squad - 1989 Space Hulk

After the fun that I had with my test model last week I decided to take the plunge and paint up a full squad of 1989 era Terminators for use in the classic first edition of Space Hulk.

As per the test model I stuck with the bright red heraldry of the noble Blood Angels chapter of the Adeptus Astartes! 

As these fellas appeared on the front cover of the Space Hulk box and both versions of the Space Crusade box art I felt they were the poster boys of the period (before the Ultramarines took over!)

Blood Angels Terminator - 1989 Space Hulk Test Model

After playing a fantastic game of Space Hulk with my girlfriend last weekend I was well and truly bitten by the retro Oldhammer bug (again)!

The sheer pleasure of moving those bulky Space Marine Terminators down tight, claustrophobic corridors simply reinvigorated my love for all things 1980s and I just needed more!

I looked at those beautiful Terminators pictured on the side of the box and the large painting on the game’s main cover and I knew that I had to paint up some more of my own astartes warriors clad in mighty suits of Tactical Dreadnought Armour!

Space Hulk 1989 - Battle Report

So what is there to do to pass the time on a rainy Sunday afternoon in October... not much really! 

Thus I decided to break out my copy of the original 1989 Space Hulk for a quick game with my girlfriend. Whilst I do like bigger battles it is nice to have a game like this that can be set up and played relatively quickly.
