The Lord of Iron

This week, we’re showcasing one of my all-time favourite characters in the Horus Heresy: The Primarch Perturabo; Lord of Iron and undisputed master of the IV Legiones Astartes:

They Mostly Come Out at Night

This week, we’re revisiting my old Genestealer Cult, a force I started a long time ago, abandoned, and have now rekindled with the recent release of Deathwatch: Overkill and all the beautiful miniatures it contains. To start this force, I’m kicking off not with the Hybrids, but with the pinnacle of Genestealer evolution: the Purestrain:

Vorax Maniple Ρ-Κ-12

Continuing on with the Mechanicum archive this week, it’s time to introduce the agile melee death-machines of Cerberus Cohort, Vorax Automata Maniple Ρ-Κ-12: Created before the signing of the treaty that saw Mars and Earth reunited and the Great Crusade begun in earnest, the Vorax Class Battle-Automata was originally designed as a hunter-killer; loosed into … Continue reading

Thanatar Siege Automata Ω-Β-20

This week while I continue to power through a big pile of Flames of War minis on commission, it’s time to dig into the archives and visit a miniature I haven’t had the chance to show you yet; my Thanatar-Class Siege-Automata, Ω-Β-20. Designed as a mobile artillery platform to support the advance of smaller, more nimble … Continue reading

Domitar Σ-Κ-7

This week, the Mechanicum units continue, this time with a Domitar-class battle automata, Σ-Κ-7: Widely considered the pinnacle of the Mechanicum’s research into Battle-Automata, the Domitar was the last type of automata to enter production before the outbreak of the Horus Heresy and the ensuing technological regression. Larger and swifter than the Castellax it served beside, … Continue reading

Castellax Maniple Δ-Δ-9

Today, we’re making a start on the rank-and-file of my Dark Mechanicum project. I’ve decided that my forces are going to be a Legio Cybernetica detachment. The Legio Cybernetica are responsible for building and maintaining the fighting battle-automata of the Imperium, and as such had access to some of the most durable and powerful mechanical … Continue reading

Dark Mechanicum

So, with the Ultramarines nearing completion, and the Iron Warriors having long gone past the point where I can field everything on the table in a reasonably-sized game, it’s time to move on to another project. One of the Horus Heresy armies that everyone went nuts over when the rules came out was the Mechanicum. … Continue reading

Xiphon-Pattern Interceptor

Welcome to 2016! Brush With Destiny is back in gear after a lazy December (an only an hour late!), and I thought I’d start the year by wrapping up an army from last year: My Ultramarines. This week, I’m displaying my Xiphon-Pattern Interceptor, the Raptus Bellico: Once a mainstay of the Space Marine Legions, the Xiphon-Pattern … Continue reading

Tyrant Siege Terminators

As the year draw to a close and Christmas looms large on the horizon, I find myself with less time to paint Ultramarines (or indeed most of my commission jobs), so instead I thought I’d share one of my quick’n’dirty units: a squad of Iron Warriors Tyrant Siege Terminators led by Erasmus Golg himself! Developed … Continue reading

The God-Engine Marches

Something a little different this week. From the vaults of my hobby room comes a miniature so large that it hardly seems appropriate to call it a “miniature”; the Lucius-Pattern Warhound Scout Titan: The Warhound Scout Titan is one of the Imperium of Man’s mightiest Weapons. Though dwarfed by every other Imperial Titan Class, the … Continue reading
