Storm Talons and Tactical Squads and Land Speeders, oh my.

By jingo tis a trifle dusty!
A fairly bite-sezed update for you... so I have been added into a campaign run by the esteemed Aaron of Black Library fame - 850pts and a Tale of Many Gamers style approach.

This month's pledge is to build and paint Tactical Squad Chilon (I've been re-working some of my Marines and Sergeants to have lovely sculpted shoulder pads); it's going well so far:
My paint station is a tip
Apologies for the shitty images - however I've got 8 out of the 10 Marines built, 2 of which are finished and the other 6 are in various stages of completeness.

Look at his drum mag. Drum mags rule.

And that's not all. I've impulse-bought a Storm Talon, and I'm shamelessly borrowing Red's idea to convert it slightly and make it look less like an Orca from Command & Conquer, and a bit more like an actual aircraft. I'm pretty happy with the wip so far:

So that's what I've been up to. Short but sweet, I know. I also finished the FW Moloc model to accompany my Enkomi, below - I;ll try and get some non-sucky images for you.


  1. Glad you're finally getting back round to posting Ead! Your Minotaurs are looking sweet, just bought the beginnings of a force myself (Moloc of course!). Will post some stuff on my blog soon.

    May see you around WW at some point!

  2. Yeha! Great first post back Ead, glad to see you blogging again and the Storm Talon looks like it's taking shape nicely, can't wait to see a Minotaurs one.
