Rune Priest of Fenris

Much like the High King himself, this Rune Priest in Terminator Armor (im not running him as Njal), will be dropping into the battlefield in his own drop pod, also accompanied by some wolf guard terminators with Combi Plasmas and a Cyclone Missile Launcher. Im still not 100% pleased with the glowing runes on the staff, so im likely to work on those a little more. Otherwise though, im pleased with how he turned out. Contrast with Logan in some of the pics below:

The High King Logan

Long live the High King of Fenris! I finished painting him up last weekend:
The picture above I touched up a little in GIMP for Mac OS X before posting. I simply cut out the background, as compared to the other shots below.

I got him on the tabletop again yesterday. He has performed well in the two games Ive gotten in thus far with my latest loganwing list (which Ill post soon), as he basically single-handedly schooled a squad of purifiers yesterday and a blob squad of guardsmen the prior game (only to be shot down after when failing 2 of 4, 2+ saves, booo)..

How To: Make Combi Storm Bolters

Well, as part of my Loganwing army, I tend to equip my terminators with combi weapons making them initially nasty when they first hit in the drop pod. So, with the only combi storm bolters I was aware of currently made by forgeworld on the heresy style terminator armor, I had a go at it...






So, in order to actually make a combi-melta storm bolter in this case required a storm bolter, melta gun, and standard bolter.

What I did was first cut off the barrels of both the bolter (really more a barrel tip) and melta gun, along with the "barrel" section of the storm bolter. I then applied the barrel of the melta gun, along with the barrel tip of the bolter to where the barrels would have been on the storm bolter. After shaving off some wolf insignia on the side of the storm bolter, I applied the melta gun "tank" as seen in the third pic... Next ill be working on the combi-plasma storm bolter, though that may take a little more creativity.

I also have a number of ebay auctions going in with 1 day left if your intersted:

Space Marine Predator - only primed - 25$

SW Terminators Update


With my space wolves 2.0 list (basically Loganwing and IG for 6th ed.), I continue to make lightning quick progress as compared to my old paint scheme. Here are some pics of some termies, along with some wolf guard with combi-weapons. At this rate, ill finish the army by next month! I'll post my list soon, though I may have to make a few tweaks after the latest FAQ drops from yesterday, from which I must say bravo Games Workshop, bravo...
