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.

Two More Crimson Fists Primaris Reivers

In order to bring my new Reiver Squad up to a strength where they are ‘legal’ for gaming purposes I have now painted up another two models. 
These guys are a couple of the Easy-to-Build variants that I have had lying around since I got the Dark Imperium and First Strike boxsets a couple of years back when eighth edition was first released.

Crimson Fists Primaris Reivers

So having finally finished my Iron Warriors Squad last week I decided to take a break from painting gunmetal grey and revisit one of my other power armoured forces... Namely the blue clad warriors of my ever expanding Crimson Fists army!

Having subscribed to Conquest magazine last year I have had a steady influx of new Primaris models arriving on my doorstep every month that I haven’t really gotten around to painting this far.
