Skyshield Landing Platform - 40k Terrain

Like all hobbyists I find that digging through my big box of unfinished projects can occasionally be a fruitful experience as I inevitably come across long abandoned models that I suddenly find myself wanting to complete.

This week I uncovered a Warhammer 40,000 Skyshield Landing Platform that I started about two or three years ago. I’d originally got to the point of 
assembly and an initial light grey undercoat when I previously abandoned this particular piece of terrain.

Flesh Tearers Re-visited

Like most people who read this blog I am something of a hobby butterfly... starting projects at a whim, getting overly enthusiastic about my latest army and buying far too much plastic...before promptly painting only ten models and then getting bored and moving onto something else.

It happens to all of us I suppose... in fact on reflection it seems that my Crimson Fists are the one story of success where I have built a viable force and steadily been adding the them since 2002... Jesus has it really been that long. 

Anyway I digress.

Crimson Fists: Non-Primaris Lieutenant

So as most of you who have played the new version of 40k have probably realised by now characters are key in enhancing the combat abilities of your troops in this version of the game.

As a Space Marine player this means I want to field an abundance of Captains and Lieutenants on the battlefield in order to secure those vital re-rolls when rolling to would and to hit.

The Lieutenant rank is a new addition to the forces of the Adeptus Astartes (or more accurately a reintroduction of Heresy era one). Whilst Primaris Marines now have two dedicated Lieutenant models that come in the Dark Imperium boxset currently normal Marines don’t have any figures  available.

As I wanted my old-style battle company to have access to this valuable HQ choice I have knocked one up in order to fill this role.
