Squad Finished!

After a lot of fucking about and procrastinating, I finished the last 5 mahreens for my first Angry Squad. I thought by not letting myself work on anything else until they were done, I would be more likely to get off my ass and finish them quickly. I was bullshitting myself. Anyway, here's the result:

It's hammer time. Ha ha ha...

This was a request form a guard playing friend. He's quite sadistic when it comes to the lives of his dudes.

The power bat turned out better than I thought. Although it's a clunky miniature, he served me well in his days as a Flesh Tearer (and as a Salamander before that!); for this reason I will look past his goofy helmet and big hands. Speaking of Salamanders, does anyone else remember when they all had Initiative 3? That was fucking stupid. Also I am old.


The Emperor's finest pest control.

There you have it, my first completed unit. I may revisit some of the bases later, but I never have been terribly imaginative or motivated in that respect.

As I said before, I'm using Blood Angel rules to make this force. As a side project, I am planning on "re-imagining" the rules for all the units (the ones I use anyway) with the intent of making a Codex of sorts for myself detailing everything in my army. Since I finished my Angry Squad first, here's what I came up with for Death Company:

Angry Marine Squad:  20 points per model.

Unit Composition: 3-30 Angry Marines

Unit Type: Infantry


  • Power Armour
  • Frag/Krak Grenades
  • Random Bullshit - Angry Marines are masters of unconventional and improvised weaponry. Random Bullshit counts as a CC weapon and bolt pistol. If the model does not have a bolt pistol (as pistols are generally for pussies), it is assumed he can throw whatever he DOES have at the enemy to the same effect.
Special Rules:
  • They're Fucking Angry! - The seething, unstoppable, violent rage of an Angry Marine makes a Khorne Beserker look like a whiny cunt who's throwing a tantrum. For this reason, Angry Marines are subject the the Furious Charge, Feel No Pain, Fearless, Relentless and Rage universal special rules.
  • FUCK THAT BORING SHIT - Angry Marines are extremely impatient when it comes to slaughtering the Emperor's foes and show a complete disregard for tactics, objectives, "faggoty spehss elf artifacts", and so forth. An Angry Marine squad never counts as a scoring unit.
  • Any Angry Marine may replace one or both parts of his Random Bullshit with the following:
    • Power Weapon (typically a power bat, power broken bottle, power brick, etc) - 15 pt
    • Powerfist - 25 pt
    • Power Feet (Counts as a pair of power fists) - 50 pt
    • Thunder Wrench (Counts as Thunder Hammer) - 30 pt
  • For every five models in the squad, one Angry Marine may replace part of his Random Bullshit with:
    • Hand Flamer - 10 pt
    • Melta/Plasma Pistol - 15 pt
Dedicated Transports:
  • Rhino (Fired from orbit/Angry Titan, counts as Drop Pod)
  • Drop Pod
  • Land Raider
  • Razorback

That's it for now. My next intended projects are two Belligerent Engines, painting Moarfistin, and maybe my Black Brother squad.

New recruits, WIPs, etc....

Been slacking off with this blog, but at least it gave me enough material for a decent post! Let's do this shit:

^ finished converting Moarfistin, The Extremely Cross (counts as Mephiston) The angry face is taken from a possessed helmet that's been shaved down. After seeing Mephy's statline, I knew I had to use him in some form. He's like a carnifex combined with an archon, which is then given magical powers. The picture is censored because I made it for Warseer, and then forgot to save the original naughty one. You will NEVER guess what is behind that black bar.

^ Dual hand flamers! Kill it with fire!

^ Marine tearing a genestealer limb from limb, make a wish anyone?

^ the famous guardsman CC weapon. I really couldn't consider this a real AM army without at least one...

^ Sledge Hammer and Power Bat/stick/maul/whateveraslongasitkillsheretics. The Bat is still uneven despite the considerable amount of yelling directed at it. I'll fix it before I paint....

That's all of my WIPs, and here is a finished model! It's my Angry Apothecary. He specializes in amputating torsos:

Alright, now that I covered my models, here's my projected force org (for those who care (no-one but me))

- Moarfistin (Mephiston)
- Bruisiarch Pugnacious (Astaroth the Grim): Power Guitar (two handed axe, hah) he's important because he enables more DC!
- Captain(?): Jump pack, rocket fists? need ideas here...
- Honor Guard

- Angry Mob x 2 - 10 man (Death Company): drop pod (crashed rhinos?) maybe deep striking land raiders?
- Angry Mob - 5 man in a Razorback (Death Company): Fast Razor backs are awesome.
- Assault Angry Mob - 10 man (Death Company with Jump Packs): Will form an honor guard for Pugnacious to get the most of his Litanies.
- Beligerant Engine x 2 (Death Company Dreads): Drop Pods with dozer blades? Somehow?

- Pair of Baals? (hah)
- Land Speeders: Fist Launchers, dozer blades.

- Black Brothers (Sanguinary guard): Home made cinematic jet plumes, "burning from within" paint job.
- Angry Apothecaries (Sanguinary Priests): Hacksaws, pliers, kegs, cigar racks. I plan to attach them to any non DC unit so that they get FNP and FC..
- Angry Terminators: Both kinds, no really good ideas yet. Will prob deep strike via Land Raiders.
- Black Engine (Flying Librarian Dread): Same stuff as the Black brothers, only bigger, force bat, jet engines.

- Predator Angrinator(Whirlwind): Look it up, gonna stay true to the original design, gonna model some of the marines as launching.
- "The Bird" (Stormraven Gunship): Replace missiles with assault marines, have marines punching through the doors/hanging on outside, big golden finger fist as a hood ornament.
- Devestators(?): Thinking about modeling them as beat-up, tired looking Mentor Marines, with signs saying things like "Please help us"....or I could go with a second Stormraven...


- Baneblade, piloted by Commissar Fuklaw
- Angry Reaver Titan - provided I can get a armorcast one cheapish, or something similar.

That's it for now. Working on getting some paint on the above WIPs, then maybe move onto a Belligerent Engine so I have a the legal 1-HQ, 2-troop force!
