Horus Heresy 2.0 3d Printed Plasma Legionaires

 

In the previous post I showed off a couple of the prints, but the next few posts will show the full squads or full 3d printed compliment of models that will be broken down into smaller squads depending on their speciality.

The Plasma Legionaires were printed in three poses and the one pose is slightly smaller (I went back and adjusted the model in 3d Builder) but its no big deal, Legionaires were different sizes anyway.

I will do some research on what the squad size should be for these guys and then start painting them up.

Watch this space.

Getting Ready for Horus Heresy 2.0 with my 3D prints

 

I have been waiting for the weather to improve and at around 19/20 degrees this last week, I took the plunge and printed off some miniatures. They turned out very well, with only 1 model lost due to my own error with placement on the bed.

As I was not expecting the prints to work in all honesty, I didn’t really plan too much and printed off two batches of legionnaires with plasma guns and two batches of Centurions, one with a power sword and the other with power claws (both with plasma pistols).

I have 11 Legionnaires with plasma guns, enough for a couple of different armies, and 4 Centurions with power claws and 2 with power swords. Not a bad haul for 2 days of printing on an Elegoo Mars which has a small print bed.

As mentioned, I am pretty much going about this randomly as I don’t even know what the rule requirements are for the army lists.

My next batch, if the weather is good enough on the weekend, is to print off batches of missile launcher and flamer Legionnaires. Assuming that goes well it will be followed by volkite armed Legionnaires.

My main issue as it was with the previous posts on the HH is choosing a legion or legions as my project focus.

List of candidates are:

·        Alpha Legion

·        Sons of Horus

·        Iron Warriors

·        Night Lords

You are not wrong of you don’t see any Loyalists in there or is there?

Let me know what legions you guys would like to see.

Horus Heresy 2.0

 

The new Horus Heresy box set, and associated goodies are imminent. Wargamers everywhere are ecstatic! At least I think so.

I am a big fan of the Heresy, as I am also a fan of the Badab War, which is a lot cheaper to get into than HH ever was before this, Forgewold being very expensive.

There was always something very appealing to me about space marines fighting each other, and now after the previous box set releases (Betrayal at Calth/Burning of Prospero) which I see as failed previous attempts to get people into the hobby, mainly because everything else remained too expensive to acquire to complete the armies. By the way, I bought 2 boxes of Betrayal at Calth and 1 box of Burning of Propero but ended up selling most of the stuff because of the cost to get a full army, never mind the rule books and black books. 

I have many posts of my journey into trying to decide on a Legion, Iron warriors, Sons of Horus, Nightlords and Alpha Legion which all ended pretty much right there.

We now have the latest incarnation of the starter set almost upon us, and I can see how GW is approaching this differently. They have a plastic tank, and a rule book in the box as well as the usual infantry etc. all good stuff. Content around the release is also amazing, painting articles, articles on the rules and legions, the associated releases like special weapons and only one additional book to purchase (Loyal or Traitor) are also good in my opinion.



 

So, with all this good stuff going on, why am I hesitant?

Well, because I believe GW have a plan to suck every drop of cash their supporters have out of their pockets, I just don’t know what the catch is yet.

Will I buy this new box set, probably (mostly for the plastic tank), anyone want some mark VI marines?

 

Let me know what you guys think.
