Greetings, Hive-Siblings,

Posting the most recent addition to my Ordo Xenos force, an imperial assassin (acting as an Eversor, in this case). This is a figure that I picked up back in the '80s when I was *mumble* years old, and 40K was shiny and new. I recently stripped him (of the black enamel paint that seemed like such a good idea at the time) and repainted him, experimenting with edge highlighting in the Assassinorum: Execution Force style.

Ohhh, Oldie but goldie. I think this old model still fits perfectly for an asassain of today.
Paintjob is nice as well.

Concernig Enamel paints, i still have the Goff RoK Band, one of the first models painted by me ever. And these guys sport a combination of enamel and citadelpaints, as i only had a few of both to i had to use both :D
Great old time!!

I demand pictures. That old Goff Rok band was so cool. :)

Inquisitor Agrippa has been joined by another Acolyte, named Malleus:

This is a Reaper Decker Lugstampf figure, with the hammer and purity seal taken from the Grey Knight Strike Squad kit.

I'm now three marines away from completing my 2000-pt Ordo Xenos force, just in time for 8th edition to drop and require us all to rewrite our army lists. :)

Greetings, Hive-Siblings!

Well, just in time for GW to invalidate my list with the new edition, my 2000-pt Ordo Xenos force is now complete! This consist of an Inquisitorial Detachment, a Dark Angels Demi Company, Deathwatch and Militarum Tempestus Allied Detachments, and an Officio Assassinorum Operative. Apologies for the quality of the photos. My lightbox isn't big enough for the whole army...

Greetings,

Sharp-eyed hive-siblings will have noticed that the pictures are gone from this thread. This is due to a change in Photobucket's policies. They disabled all the images in my account (including the ones that were not posted anywhere outside of Photobucket) and asked me to pay them to upgrade my account. I don't react well when people try to strong-arm me into giving them money, so I have closed my account.

Apologies to anyone who wanted to look at any of these images. PM me and I'll email them to you.

...and we're back, courtesy of the kind folks at DakkaDakka. :)

Two more additions to my Ordo Xenos force:

Firstly: Venerable Dreadnought Remigius. Many thanks to my friend Lord Malachias of the Word Bearers (not his real name, shockingly) for christening this one for me:

I hope that the stained glass is bullet-proof...

Meanwhile, Eversor Assassin Dai-sho has been replaced by Vindicare Assassin Tachi:

This one is another Reaper miniature: Sarah Blitzer

The last two figures of my newly-refashioned Ordo Xenos force are also done, and will soon be presented for your viewing pleasure. Watch this space...

This one was a mix of parts from the Grey Knights Strike Squad, Dark Angels Veteran Squad, and Marine Tactical Squad, as well as a Chapterhouse skull helmet, a chaos warrior shoulder pad and a genestealer head.

...and an Armorium Cherub for Devastator Squad Spatha:

This is based on a Reaper Miniatures fairy familiar, with wings from the Dark Angels Veteran Squad, a chainsaw blade from the Marine Tactical Squad, and an ammo box from (IIRC) the Imperial Guard Chimera kit.
