Grey Knights: Nemesis Dreadknights

I have painted something not blue for the first time in years!  These have come out very well and I had some real success using the Tamiya Clear plaints to get some great metallic finishes on some of the surfaces.  The Blue Sword effect Kenny uses on Next Level Painting worked a treat. I hadn't used P3 paints until he recommended them; they went into the airbrush no problem, giving some great results.

The pair look great together and form the backbone of my Nemesis Strike Force.  I have equipped them the way 11th Company Podcast recommended - cheap as possible but with the upgrades needed to make the very effect going forward. The Greatsword allows one real roll to hit in CC and the flamer is awesome at thinning herds if required. T6, 2+ Sv and several wounds all for 190pts makes these guys very competitive.  For one of GW's early 'big' kits they still stand up really well against newer products.

The right arms have had a lot of subtle work put into them.  There are magnets in the wrist to accept power fists to make them even cheaper points wise if a list should need it.  The support strut is pressure fitted with a magnet in the round joint and ball joint were a second weapon can be fitted (See photo - picture explains this better).  It means I can mount a second long range weapon if I choose to further down the line.

The P3 transitions look great on the sword.  My Terminators have this effect on them as well and they are shaping up really well.

The base colour scheme on all my GK's is VMA Gun Grey, shaded using Clear Smoke and Clear Blue by Tamiya with an OSL top down highlight of VMA Steel. The 4 colours combine perfectly to give some great shading and highlight effects.  The Clear paints are a real game changer and I recommend playing around with them.  Forge World use them to get the Green/Purple tints on their Iron Hand paint schemes and the Green through the Blue on the Alpha Legion (not giving away to many secrets I hope!).

Several Terminators and an Imperial Bunker on the way. Very close to completing my 1650pts list to the standard I want, ready for the UK Expo tournament this weekend.  I hope my opponents enjoy the work put into models during the games and that it goes some way to bringing the hobby back! HTB.


  1. Fantastic work! These guys look great. Love those swords!

Space Marine Repulsor Tank Points Analysis

So hopefully you have seen my previous thoughts on the Redemptor.  A great model. I think the Repulsor however is likely to have a much bigger impact as some of its capabilities are just down right naughty.

The Repulsor has 10 weapons systems...10! I can't even see where the Storm Bolter's are meant to be on it but they are there somewhere! (I think they go above the doors but lets see when the kit comes out!)

Initial Thoughts 

Very good. Fly and Power of the Machine Spirit are very powerful rules - this has both. You can move and keep that 3+ to hit with Heavy weapons (but you still need to be careful of degradation ...BS still goes down). And if you get assault you can move back and fire without penalty because of Fly. Bonkers for an Ultramarine's gun line or creeping-advance style army.

T8 means str 4 is wounding on 6's not 5's as is in the case with the Redemptor Dreadnought. No 2+....Land Raider needs to have something going for it, however when we see the poi…

Space Marine Redemptor Dreadnought Points Analysis

I have promised Rob (Spikey Bits) at least twice now I would return to blogging but have failed miserably until now! I am on holiday and getting my ideas together to partake in my own White Dwarf "Tale of Four (one!) Gamers" style hobby challenge to get a Primaris force table top ASAP. There seems to be a gap in the market (soon to be filled by the hobby blogs and Podcasts, not least the Long War and Forge the Narrative) so having done my own research to shape my army list, I thought I would share build ideas and the points rationale behind it. Here goes...

Initial thoughts

It is good - not broken, not excellent but good. Toughness 7 is a slight issue given everyone trying to focus on being able to deal with this value. Maybe 8 would have been nice. A 2+ would be too much, but T8...hmm.... we will see. I think it is good anyway.  One concern (demonstrated in the Table Top Tactics video) is the degrading effect and impact on shooting once it goes to half health.  He needs a C…
