With the advent of 8th and workable rules for Astartes and Astra Militarum to be meshed into the Tyrant's Legion (and just finished a 1500pt Krieg Army) my mind has started to wander back to the Tyrant's Legion.
Thus I opted to finish off a horus-huron converison I started years ago.
So this is the state he was left in for 2 and a half years..
But after a bit of fiddling around, this is where I'm now at with him:
Also may of rejigged Robby G's profile to reflect Lugft Huron a bit more ;)
Just whipped these bad boys up in paint.net. When I get the hobby bug about stuff Isort of get, well too much hobby bug, hence the counters, I reckon they look pretty cool! I will print them out at 1" in size, then use a 1" hole punch to knock them out and attach them to some of those 'bottle cap stickers', they make great little tokens that survive well and have a good feel to them.
Feel free to use them if they are of any use to you!
Finally finished up my first death rider and am very happy with how he came out. Was feeling a little leary about how the bright colours would sit, but I feel with the quite muted tones of the base and horse, they have just the right amount of pop!
So just due to me being me, I've opted to have some marine support for my Kriegers, this will come in as a single squad of Legion of the Damned (from the LOTD detachment) which will be rocking as much melta as possible to hopefully slag any big nasties.
As you see I've just repurposed some partially built 2nd Generation Truescale marines and added flames and skulls. I've enjoyed doing the flames so far as it has cause me some trouble, but has also got me to learn new things to try.
Soo with the advent of me learning about being able to run a full Death Korps Death Rider army within 40k, and me reaching the stage were I really don't care if some uber-elite kid with the latest filth hotness takes me off the table turn 1 at a 40k event... I'm back into 40k!!
I also have a mate that we will start an escalation league-campaign..that will be 150pts painted a week (that is almost 10 death riders for those playing at home :/..), fortnightly pictured and 'fluffed' battle reports and all sorts of fun. I hope it will kick on, as campaign's can really wan if people get a bit over it, but I figure he is as keen as I, and we should be able to keep each other on track.
The above picture is the test model for the death riders that I'll be doing. I'll be basing the colour scheme off of either of these below pics:
The first pic I like..well...because it is a Karl Kopinski drawing, and in all honest, I reckon he does the best art for anything within the GW fold.
I like the second pic, while still being similar to the frist one, is a lighter and more vibrant, which could be a nice change for the generic Death Korp drabness. Either way the horse colouring on both is spot on and what I've tried to replicate in my GG above.
