Whistle vile you work...

... well not really had much time for whistling - or painting, because of work recently. Its beginning to calm down now but I'm going to have to get a shift on to get these last few minis done by the summer holidays.

Finally got the basing and shields done on the five Orc spearmen I basecoated ages ago - the Vile Rune tribe's ranks are slowly swelling...

The next three are some old familiar faces from my original collection - the first two came as crew for a bolt-thrower I can't remember buying, and I think there is another spear wielding orc whose spearhead broke off lurking in a box somewrhere else as well. As for the bolt thrower - only the chassis remains and that has been nicked by my Genestealer cult and had a lascannon lashed onto it!

This chap used to be a standard bearer until I pinched his standard top for my boar boyz (still not finished!) - I replaced his missing standard with a plastic spear - knew those horrible plastic goblin spearmen from 4th ed. would come in handy for something!

The last two are new ebay purchases - plenty more where they came from...


  1. More lovely stuff as always. Intrigued by your genestealer cult. Are you playing it? If so, what rules are you using? I had a cult myself, back in the day. If I was ever to return to the 40,000 millennium, that would be my army of choice without question.

    Genestealer limos for the win.

  2. Yeah - still to find something suitable to use for the limos!

    They haven't seen much action unfortunately - just a short game against the wife a long time ago using the Rogue Trader rules...

    There's a great list on the Bell of Lost Souls site, which I think is compatible with the latest edition of WH40k - I hope to play a game against a friend of mine once he's back in town.

  3. Here's the link - some great pics of conversions for cultists in there too!
