The Great Pillage Paint-athon part 1

Just a quick post today.

I’ve started painting my list of items to get my list ready for the Pompey Pillage & decided to start things off with the Ratling squads. I’ve managed to get these little buggers done pretty quickly by colour batching so we’re only talking about a few hours over a couple of days to get these done.

The great 8th edition unit test…Deathwatch

Continuing down the road of testing out what my man-dollies can do in the new edition of 40k is an ongoing process at the moment.

Last night I met up with one of my besties for some scientific dice rolling at our FLGS so that he could further test out Ork units & I decided to pull my long suffering Deathwatch out from the back of the hobby cupboard.

Do Tech-Priests dream of electric sheep?

This is going to be a long slog getting each force up to speed so I shall endeavor to keep the hobby A.D.D. to a minimum & focus on one force at a time.


First up for reorgansing are my Adetpus Mechanicus. It’s not an overly large force as it started during the Gathering Storm with the release of Cawl & the Grand Convocation detachment which mean I could have Knights & Skitarii in one detachment.

As I’m sure you’re aware all the rules for 8th edition were leaked & readily available if you know where to look. Giddy with excitement I’ve been looking at these a lot & have been able to organise the miniatures I want to use into a workable list:
