The haunted knight of Mortain.
What do most marine armies (including chaos) have in common?
The Soul Reapers are being mounted on Flagstone resin bases from Secret weapons miniatures . I just thought I’d give you my feedback on the bases after working with them for the army. I got the entire range of the flagstone bases with the beveled edges and they cover: 25mm, 40mm, 25 x 75mm bike and 60mm bases. The bases themselves represent very aged flagstone with creeping moss randomly placed on them. This theme is excellent for the Soul Reapers as they scour the galaxy in search of lost artifacts hidden in long forgotten temples and cities. The casting on the bases is remarkably clean, with only a few requiring sanding in order to remove excess resin from the base bottom; this was done to make the beveled edges sit flat on the tabletop. They are also almost bubble free, I think outta an armies worth of bases I had 8 or so with small bubbles, which can be easily filled or makes for a reason to remove the random stone tile from the bases for variety; like I did. I would highly recommend looking at Secret Weapon Miniatures bases for anyone in the market for cool looking themed basing. The beveled bases range offers the following themes: Flagstone Runic Mountain Urban Streets Flight Deck Trench works Desert Basin Desert Mesa Desert Sands Desert Wasteland I’d love to see the flagstone line expanded with more bases for variety sake
Real Life(tm) has been crazy of late, but earlier in the week a package arrived on my doorstep containing some bits I’d ordered from MaxMini (50 of one style of their ‘Steam Knight’ heads, and a bunch of Terminator Shoulder Pads and Khopesh-style power weapons), so I spent a little time putting together a combat squad of Vanguard Veterans to see how all the parts I’ve been gathering worked together. I’ve had 10 of the old Rogue Trader-era turbofan jump packs lurking in my bits boxes for the better part of 10 years, but never really knew what I wanted to do with them… Until now! These five will be the ‘vanilla’ Vanguard Veterans armed with chainswords and bolt pistols.
