Converting Dark Angels from Black Templars

The fancy new Black Templars kits have drawn the eye of many a Dark Angels player as a way to get hold of robes, tabards, cloaks, and other bits and pieces with a knightly, science fantasy theme. I bought some Crusaders and Sword Brethren to add some extra flavour to my own Dark Angels. The […]

Dark Angels Legion Falchion 40K Style

I wanted something big and imposing for this year’s major project for the holidays, something that makes my opponents think twice when we deploy our armies for an apocalypse game.

Securing Flight Stands

I’ve always found those clear plastic stands which hold up flyers in Warhammer 40k a touch on the precarious side, particularly where they bond to the base. Plastic glue doesn’t work so well with them, and super glue has a way of breaking off when bonding to paint. Pinning is another option which adds a […]
