40K SHOWCASE: Heresy White Scars, The Brotherhood of the Sun

Chris Long 4 Minute Read Sep 30

How often do you see a fully converted Heresy White Scars army?  You’ve got to check this army out! I constructed this Heresy themed army over the last couple of years, adding bits and pieces here and there, and mixing Forgeworld bits with regular plastic kits. I gave the army a nice mix of model […]

Chris Long 2 Minute Read Aug 9

I made this Solitaire HQ, an Autarch with Mantle of the Laughing God, Jetbike, Laser Lance, and Fusion Gun, for Bigred. The base model is the new Finecast Alarielle the Radiant for High Elves, mounted on a Hellion Skyboard. I mounted the fusion gun on the skyboard, and altered her staff with the tip of […]

HOBBY 40K: Pre-Heresy White Scars

Chris Long 2 Minute Read Jan 29

Aventine here to show off a few of my Horus Heresy White Scars – you heard that right – WHITE SCARS! Everyone and their brother it seems is going Horus Heresy these days, but have you noticed that just as with 40K, the lighter the armor color the rarer the army?  Well I couldn’t have […]

40K Hobby: Aventine’s Necrons From the Depths

Aventine here folks.  I’ve been busily painting up my my newly-risen Necron Tombworld.  Lets take a look.  So I have always really liked Necrons. They had that nostalgic Terminator aesthetic plopped into my favorite fictional universe. I never started a whole army though, primarily because of their lack of variety and somewhat dry back story. […]

40K HOBBY: Aventine’s World Eaters Pt. I

Chris Long 5 Minute Read Nov 26

Aventine here, with some shots of my newest army project. Some people may ask, why Chaos? Why now? Well my only answer is that I’ll be ahead of the curve when Legions comes out, and in the mean time they’ll be Space Wolves (boo!hiss!), haha. A Khorne Berserker army was my first in 40K, way […]

TOURNAMENT REPORT: Aventine’s Alamo 40K GT Journal

Chris Long 7 Minute Read May 22

So it’s May and that means the start of the Texas GT season with our trip slightly south to SA (and continuing with the Railhead Rumble next month, and WargamesCon after that). John Bailey organizes an absolutely awesome event. The missions are almost completely just straight up rulebook affairs, which is perfect in my opinion. […]
