Cathedral & Scenery stuff for your delectation.

So looking around for things to make the Basilica project easier, I found these two:  I really, really like the archways on the Raging Heroes kits.  But the kit is printed cardboard, which would be fine on it's own, However, the rest of my scenery is hard plastic, so it just wouldn't match. 

So I'm looking at my existing bits and exploring ideas for materials from Wickes.

But both of these look great

Oooooh Massive Occasion

Well, I made 50.  This was the best card:

Mrs Z finally relented and bought me a hobby related present !  Now, I didn't ask for a Warlord, but did put a Reaver on the list, just to see what happened.  What I actually got is an Arkurian StormLord, so happy with that !

And I had a look around the internet to see what else there is.  So there's stuff out there to spend my birthday money on (yes, even at the age of 50, birthday money appears !)

This looks like just the thing for my long-planned basillica:

The new statues in the new 40K/munda/KT scenery look the biz too, there's this:

And of course this:

Of course, I've believe that there are enough raw materials in the garage to build the shell, I'm just after the statues...

Defenders of freedom, truth and justice.

The Gallant Col Ackland had more or less triumphed over the filthy heretics (although was in danger of getting his head stoved in by Ogryn at one point).  It was Sunday: the Sweden resident Australian had to fly to Switzerland Montag morning, we had time to array the forces defending Devos IV. 

That's a trio of turreted Laser Destroyers in front of Belligera Rex.  It transpires that Col Ackland has a warhound which he's converted to reflect it's allegiance to the six armed emperor.  He ought to blog that, even if it's WIP.

The armoured spearhead of the Emperor's Children, cause who doesn't like purple tanks ?  Those defilers need a bit of love, though. 

Blood pact nearest us, note the Terror Bird Death Riders at the back with the 2ed Sentinels.  Then the Devos IV PDF 2nd Regt (La Guardia Presedentiale), a row of Chimera which also need a bit of love, a column of the lost and the damned (World Eaters, Beast Men, Warpsmiths from 'The Cleaved' and their plague zombie/automata). 

The Storm Lord in front of the 2nd Regt carries the modest detachment of camouflaged Veterans who are parading in front of it.  Stretching away into the distance are the PDF 13rd Mech Regt (The Tigers) who you will note don't actually have any APCs/IFVs.  And on the far side are the PDF 99th Regt (The Bloodcoats).  Who some of you will remember are the Regt Gen Horpan, Erstwhile military commander of rebel forces, comes from.  Will having two formations with similar names confuse the Imperial Guard ?  Yes, undoubtedly. 

And in case you were wondering what mighty luminary could possibly hold together such a diverse, multi-faith, cross party, collaborative, modernist organisation, look no further, Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you Zhufor the Impaler, Master Butcher of Leigh on Sea.
