My counts as Pedro Kantor

Another thing I finished during the little paint fest. He is for my Angels of Fury Army.

He is Supreme Grand Master Uriel. Chapter Master of the Angels of Fury. He counts As Pedro Kantor rules wise. same wargear obviously. I plan to make multiple Uriel models namely one with Azrael's gear. They are a Dark Angels successor chapter but I plan to primarily use the Space Marine codex with them. Anyway. I like the helmet. It almost kinda looks like the eyes are glowing when seen in person.
Anyways that's about it for what Ive actually completed. I made some progress on my Battle Barge and Apocalypse class Battleship (in Angels of Fury colors) but they are not done. When I finish them ill post them of course. Once I'm done with all that its back to crusade era thousand sons. Until next time.

For the Omnissiah

Hey everyone. Had another paint fest type thing and I made some more progress! Here is one of the things I finished.

Its a Mechanicum Battleship for Battlefleet Gothic. Thanks goes to for assembling this and other ships. He is a good assembler. I painted it to fill double duty. Its in the same color scheme as my Angels of Fury as well as being able to fill its primary role as a Mechanicum battleship. Game wise ill be using it as the Omnissiah's Victory ship for my mechanicum fleet. Fluff wise its the Angels of Fury Forge ship.
Colors used are Adeptus Battlegrey, dwarven bronze, mechrite red, chaos black, badab black wash. Matte Varnished for protection.
Well that's it for this guy. Hope you enjoy. Until next time.

Looks like ill need 2 more.

Mesy messy workspace. Anyway. Ive been pretty sick and its reflected in my drop pod unfortunately. Its done and it serves its purpose but i totally dropped the ball on this one. Maybe when i feel better and after i work on some other stuff ill try and salvage it. the big problem is its misaligned slightly. I dont know how I did it but I did. I could remove the pylons easily enough its the center data console thats on there firmly. Its salvagable i just am lazy.

Now the drop pod can serve its purpose in a game. its built badly but built and its painted. SO I can use it but chances are im just going to buy 2 more instead of the one more i originally needed. So learn from my mistakes and dont assembly under the influence of medication. You think yoru doing great until you sober up.

Its a great kit and a very precise kit so when i eventually start on one again ill talk about it. Anyways up next is my counts as Pedro Kantor for this army his name is Master Uriel. After that is probably my capital ships for BFG then either more BFG or crusade era Thousand sons.

Sweeping last sector now..

Hey all. Yesterday was a little spur of the moment paint-a-thon with a friend of mine. It was eventful as I made a little progress on my drop pod and some assembly for my Angels of Fury HQ choice. I also start work on some Battlefleet Gothic (BFG) stuff. I finished three nova escorts and started base coating my battlebarge. Since the Nova squadron is done here are the pictures of em.

There nothing spectacular. There done in theme with my Angels of Fury chapter. All my imperial and space marine vessels and mechanicus vessels that I want to get over time will be painted in this way as per my chapters fluff.

Anyway BFG stuff is fast to paint. Assembly is a nightmare for the larger ships as there is no instructions but my friend was nice enough to assemble them for me. Check out Helios Ravens 40k blog at He is helping me out with the assembly of the larger ships aka assembling them and trying to salvage my Thunderfire Cannon as it was a bad mold.

Other then the larger ships potentially being a problem in terms of assembly they are fun and easy to paint. Another nice thing is that escort ships are usually 1 to 2 pieces. Hardest part about painting these guys is basecoating them. although you could do a spray base coat if you wanted. I am just going with brushing it on and it can be a pain to get the paint into the recesses. After the base coat its really up to you how detailed you want to be with yours. I just semi drybrushed adeptus battlegrey on the ship, picked out the engines in black and painted the Lance weaponry in bronze. Then i gave the whole thing a wash of badab black and sealed it with a matte varnish.

So yea anyway that's a little change of pace. I still will be working on the drop pod so when i have time to make more progress I shall. Until then..

Small Update

Its been a bit but here is a small update.

Like ive said i switched gears and started on the Drop pod. Now I havent had much time to work on it so this is what I have done so far. Its a great kit. Its not perfect but after doing this much on the pod I will be able to make my second one faster and better.

Just for some perspective on it incase your like me and havent seen a drop pod in person before.. Its pretty big. With the doors down its footprint is roughly that of a landraider. but wider.

So that is it. More to come as I finish it and the other stuff i said prior to this I will put up here eventually. Until then. Take care
