Taurox Prime and some Flames of War

Over the past two weeks I completed this silly looking but very satisfying Taurox Prime model for my Cadian 40k army. I'm seeing this as Eisenhorn's taxi either with Scions or all alone. It is fitted out with anti-squishy personnel weaponry including the gatling cannon, hotshot volley guns and storm bolter - putting out 30 S4 shots at 24" hitting on 3+. Designed for shredding horde units or I like putting that much lead on high value models with invulnerable saves. Lots of chances to fail.

Also completed a battery of Pak 36s and a couple of more infantry guns for my early war 1940 Germans. Pak 36 was fine against light tanks but Dennis has some Matildas in his early war army... so I'm gonna need an 88.

Zvezda Stug battery

I picked up a couple of early war Stugs for my Flames of War German army along with an Sdkfz 222 to act as a spotter. These are the sweet little Zvezda 1:100 kits, I think they are very nice.

Finished off the Calth box

I finished the Betrayal at Calth box set with the last batch here of marines, a dreadnought and a praetor. These guys are done in Wordbearers livery. I magnetized the right arm of the dreadnought so it can be either armed with an autocannon or a multimelta.

Of the 40k kind, or more accurately, of the 30k kind, from the Calth box set. Five Cataphractii Terminators and a Captain in Terminator armour, all done in Ultramarine livery. Now I am working on the Wordbearers.

I just finished a command squad of Tempestus Scions with a Tempestor Prime (in the leather coat), all in berets. These guys are armed to hilt - kitted out with a hot-shot volley gun, plasma rifle, melta, and hot-shot lasgun. I have two minds for how to use them - they can do grav-chute insertion to take objectives or commit other nefarious deeds in the enemy rear, or they could ride shotgun with Eisenhorn perhaps in a pimped outTaurox Prime (coming soon). In either case, I think they look pretty cool!

30k Space Marines

I got the Betrayal at Calth boxset for my birthday in January, and just finished my first unit, a squad of tactical marine painted in Ultramarine livery. Nice figures!

Team Yankee unit cards for the 4CMBG

I played around with Powerpoint today and created my own Canadian unit cards for Team Yankee, representing elements of the 4th Canadian Mechanized Brigade Group (Tanks from the Royal Canadian Dragoons, infantry from the Princess Pats). I statted them out using similar vehicles and assumed the crews and infantry would have stats like the British - so considered highly trained. Let me know what you think.
