Hey all I'll keep this short. I've slowly been growing away from BGG as I focus more on social spaces for wargaming and RPGs. If you'd like to continue my journey in hobbies, and join me in exploring some new ones, you can follow me on my across platform hub that I've just opened. The address is https://warkriimes.wordpress.com

There is no expectation of making the jump with me but I've really enjoyed interacting with those few who follow me here.

Peace for now,

Chris.

Working on my Orks Combat patrol. I've dubbed my army, the Blare Gitz Projekt.

Here are 30 boys which I'll use like 10 of (the 30 are for 30/40 in the 1.5k list I'm working on).

Burna Boyz.

Some Gretchin.

Some of these are from old paint batches. I updated them a bit with contrast for a coherent look.

All I have left for 500 pts, is my Kommandos, my weirdboy, and a trukk. I have about 2 weeks before I'll really have a chance to play with them so it should be plenty of time.

Catch you next time,

Chris.

Hello!

Today I bring you my dakka jets.

I built them on a long hobby chat with friends.

From gallery of ogoctopus

This is the kitbashed one.


From gallery of ogoctopus

And, Vanilla.

The flight stands are going to take some effort. I bought some 2.4cm acrylic rods and will cut them down to the appropriate size, drill out holes for 10mm rare earth magnets to attach the dakkajets.

These will only really get used in 1k-2k pt. games.

Should give me some flexibility though.

I also have sort of a wishlist for the bump up to 2k, another pack of Burna boys, and 3 more packs of warbikers. Should get some good use out of ghaz with that.

Speaking of I built this bad boy up

I'm here again to show you progress on my Battle Wagon build.

I have the skeleton but didn't build any of the options. I probably won't use them in ninth. Other than the Deff Rolla and Forktress, the latter is not modeled. I have the upgrade pack on order at LGS.

From gallery of ogoctopus


Here's the skeleton. I'll need to make at least 2 options to plug holes. Maybe unmanned shootas.

From gallery of ogoctopus


Burna boy for scale, I'm taking 10 in a 1.5k list and rushing them up center with Da Jump rolling in with deffrolla and picking of survivors with the burna boys as pyromaniaks.

From gallery of ogoctopus


See all 10 fit it's legal (For Gorkamorka at least hope no one falls). Maybe I don't need to plug holes ;D

All for now,

Chris.

update:

From gallery of ogoctopus


Built a few shootas to plug the holes. All the stuff is modular, you don't need to glue anything so you can swap it out as you wish.

Here are my skelecrons. Near 1300 points of them.

There are the contents of indomitus and 2 recruit editions here.

With this, I'm about ready to start playing going to bring some models and rules to work on next week to play with my friend.

No further ado, here are the pics.

So.... Warhammer 9th, newish edition new ork codex, exciting stuff.Warhammer 40,000 (Ninth Edition)


From gallery of ogoctopus


First up I painted the last of my Rainbow Marines that are assembled I only have 3 left to 2k points. I don't know if the list is good but they are there.

Assault Primaris, my second full unit ready for combat.

I also spent a huge chunk of time this weekend playing the bad sleep hygiene game and assembled most of my Ork army that was waiting for me in the closet.

Waiting on magnets to build my dakkajet, and an upgrade kit to build the battlewagon. And then I can play at least while I'm painting them up!

From gallery of ogoctopus


Oh and the teaser from my Necron army, The skelecrons! *cue high pitched Skeletor laugh*

So this is the first time in a while I've had something ready to game with people. I have a good deal of prospective games coming up. Just have to secure space to do so because I don't have room at home. Waiting on some stuff for magnetized storage. I could be ready to play a few 500-1k point games in as soon as 2-3 weeks!

I'm so ready to do some gaming finally.

Hope you all are doing well. Catch you next time!

Rainbow Legion :: Warhammer 40k - Start Collecting! Vanguard Space Marines

Deep in the Range of rimworld incursions the vanguard of the rainbow legion strikes fast and first. They fight to the last and are always willing to reinforce the main brigade.

This is probably the first full boxset I've painted, picked these up a while ago because I fucking love infiltrators and the other models in the box are really cool as well. These ones don't represent the rainbow on their own, just a few colors from it, based on rank and their unit type.

From gallery of ogoctopus


Lieutenant in Phobos Armor. -- I buggered this one a bit, by painting him blue, I meant to have all my lieutenants orange. So I painted his accent color orange.

From gallery of ogoctopus


Infiltrators -- I painted some arrows on the second sergeant, or what have you to signify his rank the sergeant has red shoulders. This way they are different enough that I can split them into 2 squads, or keep them as one, and the second sergeant just counts as a regular troop.

From gallery of ogoctopus


Elminators.

From gallery of ogoctopus


Suppressors.

After this, I only have like 13 models left before my army is complete for the most part. I have 10 more assault intercessors from the 2 recruit editions I purchased. As well as 3 eradicators with multi melta and heavy meltas, to assemble prime and paint.

Again these wh40k armies are for both Warhammer 40,000 (Ninth Edition), my collection of Warhammer 40,000 (Fourth Edition) books, and Renegade Scout: Retro-inspired Sci-Fi Miniatures Rules.

In general, my sci-fi collection is based around the rogue trader themes from Five Parsecs From Home: 2nd Edition in unity space. As well as RS.

I'll also eventually work around to Inquisitor, and possibly Stargrave: Science Fiction Wargames in the Ravaged Galaxy with this stuff.

All for now, thanks for taking a look,

See you next time,

Chris.

Finally finished this project. I just have to varnish. I should be able to start gaming soon, and I won't need much space to the game considering it's 15mm. Or maybe I won't scale down movement and range, we'll see what feels right.

I think I'll start with PrimEvo. It seems to benefit from being written recently and has some modern game design. It's probably the most fleshed-out of the three books I'm considering, so I guess I'll have to give it a read soon and table this. Get ready for some session reports.

Here's the last batch of minis. They turned out a little darker than I thought they would but that's fine. Just gives the range a little more complexity and unique fur patterns.


From gallery of ogoctopus


The Darker buffalo are from splintered light. I can't recall where the hell the larger 20mm giant buffalo are from. I'll use them all as a herd, proxy for deer and herbivores in Primevo and Paleo.Sticks & Stones Player's Guide

From gallery of ogoctopus


My full herd of deer from splintered light.

From gallery of ogoctopus


Khurasan Giant Boar, not sure what these will fit as, possibly cave hyena or something. Or I think the Paleo diet will have generic enough rules to use them.

From gallery of ogoctopus


Khurasan Bear Dogs. I'm going to use them in PrimEvo for the trained dogs.

From gallery of ogoctopus


Khurasan Sabertooth. I'm going to use them as cubs as they are much smaller than my others.

I also picked up sticks and stones in the savage world's prehistory game. I don't know if I'll run this with my group anytime soon, but it's a novel idea.

Stay tuned folks, I hope to have some more updates soon. I'll try and varnish these tomorrow and see if I can get cooking with a game. Would be fun to play some games again.

Take care,

Chris.

From the Lost Legion. Travelling through the stars for over 10 thousand years, they forgot why they set out, but they have returned. A breakaway chapter from an unknown primarch. The Rainbow Guard, have set on their crusade to free the galaxy from the tyranny of the false god emperor.

Hello, I wish to bring you today a post that's been a long time coming. I think I've shared bits of these in places but I purposely didn't share here yet, so I could unveil it all at once.

My "Rainbow Marines" or Pride Marines. Hoped to have these done for Pride month last year... whistle

From gallery of ogoctopus


Red is the accent color for my sergeants.

Orange is the color for my lieutenants. I ended up with 3 of these from Indomitus and the 2 recruit editions.

My Captain is yellow.

Green for bikers and eradicators

Blue for Assault Intercessors

Purple for Ancients.

Brown for Chaplain.

Black for Judicar.

____________________________________________________________________________________

SO... I might actually get these to the table. I'm hoping to play Warhammer 40,000 (Ninth Edition) at my LGS, and I'm hoping to runRenegade Scout: Retro-inspired Sci-Fi Miniatures Rules solo, I'll soon have my second army done. Going to need a codex or two.

This is the SM side of indomitus completed. So I have space on my table for another project.

From gallery of ogoctopus


I have my Vanguard box mostly primed.

From gallery of ogoctopus


Got some silly putty so I can prime my flyers.

Lot's to do, I think I have like 6 total forces of various size for Wh40k now in various states of readiness. Mostly planning on indie games, and using them in the likes of Five Parsecs From Home: Solo Adventure Wargaming, and Since the book is coming soon, as well as Inq28 and Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team Since the new game teaser page looks like many of my unit types will be supported. Stargrave: Science Fiction Wargames in the Ravaged Galaxy, and Starport Scum: Space Adventure on the Wrong Side of Hyperspace are definitely prime for reskins with my growing horde of painted wh40k models.

Anyway just sort of rambling at this rate.

Hope you all enjoy the painting.

Catch you next time,

Chris.

Mammoths from Acheson Creations, and Irregular miniatures.

I have a good few more before I'm done. Maybe about another 25% of the total minis.

From gallery of ogoctopus


Got my printeme1 of Prehistoric Settlement, PrimEVO: Gods & Nightmares, and Palaeo Diet: Eat or be Eaten. So hopefully I can get these figures in with a play soon over on July in the solitaire minis lists.

Here is the category for the project https://boardgamegeek.com/blogcategory/6358/prehistoric

From gallery of ogoctopus


I also picked up dominion today, and a Ork Jet.

Have half a thought to kitbash the new Orruks with the growing mass of 40k orks I have yet to assemble.

From gallery of ogoctopus


Might turn out to be my largest actual army if I ever get it done.

I might steal a scheme from this new YT channel.


or at least follow the advice. Has me wanting to strip the existing ones maybe. Or maybe I'll just work in a quirky scheme that they can blend in with a bit.


All for now,

Chris.
