The Knights of House Traxis

Like most, its time to revisit and update my Knights.  I've done a few and have sold them off, then did a bunch for commission, which I have a ton of now, but for my Knights its time to give rebirth to my own household "House Traxis"

A Mechanicus loyal house on a planet of the same name. Traxis is an AdMech Bio-Experiment world where the Mechanicus is working on methods of Tera-forming. The result is a Death World unlike any in the Galaxy, even Catachan looks like paradise compared to Traxis. Death Watch Kill teams use Traxis heavily for training because the vegetation rivals Tyranids. A Tyranid bio-ship once stubbed upon Traxis and got to close to the surface. Vines as thick around as Titans shoot from the surface and pulled the ship out of orbit and the world to Traxis consumed it.

House Traxis strongholds are all subterranean as is the sole Hive City. This Hive City is refereed to as Prime-01 and is fully dedicated to experimentation and archiving of data from other Forgeworlds. Traxis is known to hold almost as much archive data as Mars itself.

The Knights of House Traxis have to venture out daily to combat the ever encroaching life on the planet, the vegetation, the titan sized predators, Traxis is constantly evolving, creating new and dangerous monsters to combat.

A new way.

I keep trucking along. Using all the experience and skill I learned from my first build. My customer did not want lights (boo) but he did want the "box" to be accessible for future possible LED's (yeah) so I did my build with that in mind.  In the mean time I was asked to do some emergency surgery on a wounded Warhound.  I was happy to get him back in action.

I'm a Resin Carpenter!


I use more of my power tools building a Warlord then I do on my home repair or other projects. Thank you Black & Decker.

Splish splash

Shifting Sands

With the release of the Custodes I realized i had two to many metallic painted armies. I decided to give my Thousand Sons of the Silver Tower a repaint to the new "Sons of the Shifting Sands". A desert planet that's constantly shifting (very Tzeentch of me).  Think Tomb Kingish. Cities covered in the sands revealed everyday just to be buried, oceans flow and dry up.

This is a rough job, I need to figure you what color to paint the base rim, any recommendations? The base color is Zandri Dust.

Not all gross is green

 

A little commission work. Great model, very fun to build and paint.  I have a couple for myself.
Bravo GW, bravo.

Absence does not mean idle

Its been a hobby whirlwind recently. Just to get caught up my projects here is a preview of what I've been working on:

Carry a big stick

So for years I've used a yard stick and double sided sticky tap for priming.  A friend of mine uses Alligator clips and made me a believer. Picked up from the local Home Depot and some Gorilla Grip wood glue.  I have 20 clips spaced to allow for multiple clips to hold larger bases. So much easier then the tape.

Alive and Kicking

Been awhile since I posted but I'm still out here kicking tires.  I have a few projects in the pipeline that I will share when the time is right but for now I've jumped on the Death Guard bandwagon. To be fair I did have Death Guard around 5th edition I think so this is more of a rebirth.

I've taken a different stance on my Death Guard.  Not all disease is slime and sickness, sometimes it corrosion and rust. My Death Guard "Warband" is the "Rusted" and spread rust and corrosion where they go, turning all to dust.

I stuck with Typhus in the normal colors and decided my Morty and his bodyguard will be pre-hersey in color.

Here are a few I have done.

Weekend randomness.

Just getting a little caught up on some things from the past.

I was very honored to assist my local Warhammer store to kick off 8th by painting the demo table and terrain.  The minis were wonderfully done by a team of others.  This will make the fourth table I have done for the store.









I had also done both a City Fight table and "Mars" table that got used in combination for an Apoc game.



And in my spare time I was able to work on a test scheme for my Tzaangors
