Project Updates

Summer is here and with school over and done with I have a lot of time to dedicate to finishing all of my projects.

The space marine army is coming along nicely and I've put together all 40 marines. The squad breakdown is:
Tactical Squad 1 - 10 space marines, Flamer, Multi-melta, and sergeant with power weapon
Tactical Squad 2 - 10 space marines, Flamer, Multi-melta and sergeant with power fist and combi-melta
Devastator Squad - 10 space marines, 4 missile launchers
Vanguard Squad - 10 space marines, 2 Thunder hammers, 2 power weapons, Sergeant with Relic Blade and custom turbine-style jump packs (looks like the old Rogue Trader jump packs from way back)
I also converted a model that is armed in the same way as Vulkan He'stan so I will most likely paint this up as a Salamanders army.

Haven't done much with the Bretonnian army but it is so far going to look like this:
2 units of 5 Knights of the Realm
2 units of 5 Questing Knights
1 unit of 3 Pegasus Knights

And lastly my one of a kind Dark Elf Executioner Cavalry is now primed and one model has been test painted. Sorry no pics of this unit yet.

I hope to have more updates (with pictures!) by the end of the week.

WIP Vanguard & Plush Wind Whistler

With the forty marines I picked up recently I decided to make at least two tactical squads so far and maybe a devastator squad of four missile launchers.

The fourth squad I originally thought to make a sternguard squad but decided an assault element would be more helpful so I scrounged up a bunch of close combat weapons and proceeded to make some vanguard. Since I don't have spare jump packs, I tried my hand at converting some old turbine style jump packs from the RT days.

The gallery can be seen here.

After calculating the points though I'm finding the Vanguard squad kind of expensive. I might just make a small squad of 6 or 7 vanguard and see if I have enough to make a small squad of sternguard to help them out (or change the devastator squad to a sternguard squad)

Also, Alice has been busy and completed a plush Wind Whistler for the My Little Pony trading post. Pictures can be seen here.

New marines received

Got my package of marines. 40 marines in total, with enough weapons to make up a full devastator squad of 4 missile launchers, two tactical squads with lascannons and flamers, and another squad of 10 marines which I am hoping to be able to convert to sternguard or maybe vanguard (I think I have enough close combat weapons and I could convert the regular backpacks to jump packs).

Also got a rhino but it wasn't built very well so it's going to end up staying as a rhino unless I can build a proper turret housing for the whirlwind launcher and demolisher housing.

Upcoming Projects

Not much new is going to be happening until next month, but just to make sure no one thinks I'm not doing anything here are a list of upcoming projects that I hope to finish and put up for sale by the end of June.

Warhammer Fantasy
  • Bretonnian Pegasus Knights
  • Bretonnian Knights of the Realm
  • Bretonnian Questing Knights
Warhammer 40k
  • Codex Space Marines army consisting of two tactical squads, a devestator squad, a sternguard squad and a rhino (which will have options to be a whirlwind or vindicator). Not sure what chapter to paint them as because all the Codex chapters have nice special characters (thinking either Ultramarines, Salamanders or Crimson Fists as I can easily convert the special characters for those chapters and they fit the foot slogging style of warfare that those four squads suggests)
Stay tuned for more updates as June progresses.

Warhammer 40k Converted Space Marine Dreadnought up on eBay

Just put up for sale on eBay is this dreadnought.

The Dreadnought comes equipped with a Dreadnought close combat weapon with converted heavy flamer in the left arm weapon, and a magnetized right arm that accomodates the following custom weapons (in the order they appear in the slide show):

  • Plasma Cannon
  • Seismic Hammer with meltagun/heavy flamer
  • Assault cannon
  • Twin-linked Lascannon
  • Multi-melta
  • Twin-linked Heavy Flamer

The dreadnought carries a smoke launcher on the right shoulder (which can double as Ironclad assault launchers) and has a magnetic hardpoint on the left shoulder that accomodates a hunter killer missile when it is used as an Ironclad dreadnought

Larger pictures can be seen here.

Welcome to Silent*Knight Hobbies

After many years of operating without a web page of some sort, we have finally decided to create one. This blog will allow people to see what is coming down the pipe and will give anyone interested a good heads up preview before anything is auctioned off. For anyone interested they may also request certain items (a particular plush, beanie or model conversion for example) so that we may consider them for our future projects.

Keep an eye on this blog and if anyone is interested in what is being made, feel free to call dibs on it!
