Eldar Warhost of Alaitoc

Larry Vela 2 Minute Read Jan 10

Here is an introduction to my Eldar Warhost. Clocking in at over 200 minis with @100 of them being aspects, it is a force as large as it is old. This army started out during the Rogue Trader days as a handful of Eldar Pirates with a single Eldar Dreadnaught (yes they were called that […]

Lord Typhus and Death Guard Chosen

Larry Vela 2 Minute Read Jan 5

Here is the big guy himself. I rarely use Typhus, and mostly painted up the mini to use as a terminator lord (which I also pretty much never use). The 3 chosen are conversions from chaos terminators with some greenstuff and Grey Knight pieces to give them a more baroque feel. They are sporting their […]

Loyalist Death Guard Command Squad

I think its only fair to post a bit on my Loyalists. Here is the Command Squad (minus the Master), who leads my Loyalist army. Tactics wise, I use give these fellows Furious Charge, attach my Marine Master to them and put them into that Land Raider. This squad beelines for the heart of the […]

On the tabletop he is following: Chaos Lord Mark of Nurgle Daemonic Speed Daemonic Mutation Daemonic Strength Manreaper Nurgle’s Rot Teleport Homer Frag Grenades Bionics Infiltrate This […]

Death Guard Logo Sheet

Larry Vela 2 Minute Read Jan 2

I have had several requests for information regarding the custom Death Guard logos that are all over my army. Here is the link to the PDF file for the decal sheet you can freely pull down and use: Download Here I created the original logo in Adobe Illustrator, then made variations of it for size […]

Heresy Era Predator

This guy was fun to do. I had an old 2nd edition predator and a new Mk2 Rhino, plus some odds and ends. I put 2 and 2 together and got this semi-retro looking predator. The real trick was painting it. I intended to use this vehicle in both the Loyalist (codex Space Marine) and […]

How many minis does bigred own?

Larry Vela 2 Minute Read Dec 30

Here is a shot of all of my armies. It turns out that almost 2 decades is enough time to put together and paint a lot of Minis. From Bottom to Top: Tyranids: This is a hodge-podged collection of nids ranging from Space Hulk to 2nd to 4th edition, unified by a single paint scheme. […]

The Defiler

Larry Vela 2 Minute Read Dec 30

So it’s time to post a bit on the Defiler. I wanted to do something a little different for my Defiler as it is supposed to be part of a Heresy-Era Death Guard force. So I decided to try to make it an ancient Legion piece of siege equipment. Probably something built with Mechanicus assistance. […]

Heresy Era Traitor Death Guard

Larry Vela 5 Minute Read Dec 30

I’ve been meaning to get up some shots of the bloated and diseased brothers of my Loyalist Heresy Death guard force and here they are. These guys were designed to allow mix and matching between the loyalists and the traitors without much worry. I did it by making the traitors much more “Imperial” in appearance […]

Heresy Era Death Guard

Larry Vela 4 Minute Read Dec 30

I finished up a 2500 pt pre-heresy DeathGuard army several months ago, after going bit fluff crazy. Here is my take on it. First, I got Index Astartes Volume 3 which has the Death Guard article in it as well as their pre-heresy color scheme. Then, I picked up the Horus Heresy art books from […]
