Blanchitsu: My First Warband – Part 1

Posted by Bitzbox

Yes you are seeing this right. A blog post on our blog and it's not April Fool's day anymore. This is the start of a blog and video series all about Blanchitsu. What is Blanchitsu? Well it's essentially Inquisitorial warband creation for Warhammer 40,000. If you're familiar with the game Inquisitor then if you think of it in 28mm scale then you're on the right track. Miniatures are usually painted extra dark and grimy to get that John Blanche feel. Below is the first video in our series looking at Blanchitsu which will tell you more about it, where to find inspiration and also how to get started.

So now that you know a little more about Blanchitsu I want to show you guys my first warband. The first miniature in this warband is already painted. This miniature was originally built for a steampunk style Ad Mech army that I had planned a while back (I may reignite this project in the future).
He is built mainly from the Tech Priest Dominus kit but uses the head from the Shaking Sean miniature from a game called Smog.

Next up we have the two henchmen for the warband. This first miniature uses the head from a Skitarii Ruststalker, Genestealer Cult Neophyte Hybrid Arms, Empire Greatsword Legs, a Cadian Backpack and a Militarium Tempestus Scions Torso as well as a couple of extra little bits.

This second henchman also uses Genestealer Cult Neophyte Hybrid Arms and Empire Greatsword Legs. He uses a slightly different cadian backpack and also has a head from the Genestealer Cult Upgrade Sprue, a metal cowboy hat and a torso from the old Empire Militia set.

In part 2 we will look at some of the more weirder creations from this warband.

Imperial Guard Veteran

Posted by Bitzbox

This conversion of an Imperial Guard Veteran with a Flamer was sent into us by Brian Donohoe. I really like this conversion as it has a very commanding pose and makes good use of a variety of bits.

Here is a run down of how the miniature was converted:

It's the body from one of the Vostroyan snipers with the arm in a sling from the Cadian Command Squad the bandaged arm with las gun from the Forge World Cadian upgrade kit and a flamer and tanks from the Cadian Shock Troops box. He is one of four minis I converted together at the time using the two vostroyan snipers and some bits from the Cadian Shock Troops and Heavy Weapons boxs. In hind site this guy would have been better with the flamer on up the other way.

An Hour Of Hobby

Posted by Bitzbox

Evening battle brothers, and obviously sisters lest we not forget, Waaaaaghh to all the Orks out there and 0100100001000101010011000100110001001111 to all the Necrons!

 

So... I only managed to spend an hour or so on the hobby at the weekend, and I thought I’d start work on the empire griffin as he’s a very large figure and I need to make sure I spend a large bulk of time on him making sure he’s as grand as I can make him.

I started on the base of the miniature, and was trying to work out something a little more exciting as its quite a static figure, I switched my laptop on and searched images of the empire griffin but to my surprise I couldn’t find many with a fancy base.

So I went to my hobby cave and went in search of something to use, I found cork, drift wood, green stuff and twigs. (You can purchase drift wood and twigs or just head to a park or beach and pick them up, remember to clean them and dry them out etc.)

Looking through one of my drift wood boxes I found a nice piece that looked a bit like pride rock from the lion king (don’t knock it I love it!)  and I took the saw to it, I also found some interesting shapes in some other twigs , applied some glue and layed it all together till I was happy.

 

 

I’m not unhappy with the result, still a lot of work to be done on the base but to be honest I love working on bases for large miniatures, next step is to soften the cork and to fill in some of the gaps and then raid my twigs and veins draw to see what else I can add, like I said I only spend an hour or so on both part, this part probably only took about 10minutes.

 

On to the griffin, so I want an amber wizard on the back of this little beasty as I think it will look great with the theme of the base, and I also love the look of the wizard , plus I already have plans for the other two figure you have the choice from in the box. I didn’t go for any real conversion work other than the plume on the griffin's head which is from the same kit, one set of feathers is for a helmet and the other I have no idea what its used for (who needs instructions)  but I liked the way it looked and it gave some more movement to the figure so I went with it, I didn’t like the angle the griffon was at so you'll notice a piece of cork under his back foot which I'll blend into the piece as a whole. I think the griffin looks very regal and not to over the top he’s only pinned so I can lift him on and off this is be extremely important at the painting stage! So this was about 50-60minutes most of which was testing different bits to see if I wanted to try and cut his wings and re-shape them but I’ll be honest I kind of loved the look it already had on the base so went with it.

 

Please leave comments and I hope you find an spare hour here and there to do some more to your hobby pieces, peace out (wow that was old school! I refuse to hang my head in shame though!)

First blog of the year

Posted by Bitzbox

so this is my first blog and i just wish to say hi and thanks for letting me have this chance, so thanks 🙂
right now on to the blog side of things, now like most people in the 40k universe i have started my own chapter of space marines (good and bad) so for my Loyal space marines i have decided to name them "Swords of the Aquilla" they are based around the Ultramarines colours, with some small changes or should i say colour changes, so this is just some back ground history ive been working on :

Chapter Name :- Swords Of The Aquilla
Origins :- Ultramarines
Founding :- 11th or later (not sure yet)
Home Planet :- Aquillian Prime (Moon Base on Texorius 4)

Aquillian Prime was a primitive world that was invaded by orcs, an imperial guard army was sent in called Twin Peaks Guard and asked for help as they couldn't contain the invasion that's when the Swords of the Aquilla were called upon to contain the situation.
Aquillian Prime has two moons - Secondus and Texorius 4 - The swords now use Texorius 4 as their main HQ and watch over the system of Aquillian Prime which include a Death world named quixoni and a barren planet named lukjim.
Since the swords have had watch over Aquillian Prime it has now become an Peaceful and prosperous world not far from the likes of the Ultramarines planets themselves.

Chapter Master :- Phelix Kanto (pedro kantor model)
Wargear:- Artificer Armour, Storm Bolter, Power Fist, Frag & Krak Grenades, Iron halo

Chaplain :- Rah Kofu
Wargear:- Power Armour, Plasma Pistol, Frag & Krak Grenades, Rosarius, Crozius Arcanum

Librarian :- Ismael Ramesses
Wargear:- Power Armour, Plasma Pistol, Frag & Krak Grenades, Force Weapon, Psychic Hood, Epistolary

Captain of the 2nd company :- Pheonix Thor
Wargear:- Artificer Armour, Storm Bolter, Lightning Claw, Frag & Krak Grenades, Iron Halo
