So my new army and current time sink is an Astral Claws force. I went to my first UK Games Day this year and instantly fell in love with the Lugft Huron model. So deep was my affection for this lifeless hunk of resin that I picked up Imperial Armour 9 and decided that I had to build my new leader an army.

I've been hesitant to show any pics of my army as it's developing as I know that several of the people who read this will be entering the tournament but I've just finished painting my HQ unit and I just had to show it off.

The Librarian in terminator armour is a great metal model which is so detailed that I've been a bit intimidated and have put off painting it for some time. This weekend I decided to give it a shot and 6 hours later here are the results.

It's definitely tabletop quality but I can see an improvement in my painting from this time 12 months ago and I'm very happy with it.

I'll post the rest of my growing marine force as it nears completion.


  1. That is stunning. Good luck at the tournament.

    Since you are building an Astral Claws army, you should check out what Silar is doing for Badab War armies...

  2. I'm glad Counterfett sent you to my blog, as this model is brilliant. I can't wait to see the rest of your force and it's good to see another astral claws collector :)

    What tournament are you entering?

  3. It's the 40k Radio UK Freebootaz tournament. Thanks for adding me to the group - it's great to see it growing.

  4. I look forward to seeing them in person there :)
