Mostly Medieval - More news on the Perry HYW Plastics

Hot off the press from the Twins: '...first shots of the Men at Arms for the English Army( Agincourt to Orleans) frame back from Renedra.'

Another batch of revolting peasants from me this week, as well as a random Death Guard Apothecary!

Good news for medieval fans!

I've still enough unpainted metal versions to keep me going for a while yet, but this can only help those looking to build a new and quality medieval army at a competitive price. Then there are all the conversion opportunities :-)

Twenty First Velites - Jet Bikes WIP

Whilst Nick Kyme's narrative in Rebirth only mentions to a thirty strong unit of scouts under Centurion Heklion Faustus, it seems apt that his light company would also include jetbikes and speeders.

So here is a WIP of a small unit of the jet bikes:

Once these are finished, it'll be back to painting the scouts...

A unit of light horse for my growing Wars of the Roses forces for Lion Rampant. These are metals by the twins and were a joy to paint (I actually finished them last week and they've seen some action now, but life got in the way of taking photos!)

The lack a livery badge as yet, but the red coats make them suitable for either Devon or Warwick :-)

So another new short from Black Library. The bumpf says, 


Chagrined by his defeat at the hands of Jaghatai Khan, Mortarion abandons the pursuit of the White Scars and instead leads the Death Guard in a spiteful, punitive rampage across the systems of the Prosperine empire. World after world has fallen to this horrific onslaught, and yet the insular and secretive primarch seems preoccupied by some other, unspoken goal. Finally, on Terathalion, the truth of Mortarion’s sinister heritage will be exposed, and the future of the XIV Legion will be written...


The Death Guard have already embraced treachery, but this story follows their Primarch as he continues upon the road that will eventually doom his Legion to a plague-wracked damnation.
Although by definition 'short', this piece serves to fill in some of the gaps between Mortarion's appearances in Scars and Vengeful Spirit, as well as providing some more tantalising glimpses of the Emperor's long term plan for mankind - or perhaps his manipulation of his primarchs for the greater good. Wheels within wheels.
