Happy holiday wishes to all who read my blog. The gods of the postal service (both domestic and foreign) blessed me with speedy delivery of my Cybermastiffs and Imperial Enforcer model. I'm especially happy to have gotten hold of one of these.
Oh well. Its good when family is in town.

Once upon a time I had a Witch Hunters warband for that wonderful game Mordheim. It was a lot of fun to play with even if I didn't do that well overall. Late last night I had an idea...
A couple recent eBay wins have netted me two cybermastiffs from the Enforcers kit, as well as the Forgeworld Event Only Enforcer and hound. While trying to figure out what exactly I'd use these models for I remembered my old warband. I had three hounds then and I will have three here soon enough. Why not build a 40k equivalent? The original band had a Captain, a Priest, five Flagellants, and aforementioned hounds.
This will be a fun little project to work on in the future. I don't expect the hounds or Enforcer and hound until the end of the month. In the mean time I'll carry on building until Winter truly arrives.

Working at my present capacity I should have plenty of minis assembled for Paint Phase.

I've worked out a list based on what I've got between the BaC and BoP boxes. Floating this list over on /r/Warhammer30k got me decent feedback.
-cataphractii Terminator Armour
Tactical Squad (20 man) [mkIII]
Tactical Squad (20 man) [mkIV]
Tactical Support Squad [mk III]
-5x melta guns
Tyrant Siege Terminator Squad
Iron Havoc Support Squad [mk IV]-5x Missile Launcher
I've already started work on the Havocs. I'm keeping my eyes open for good deals on Iron Warriors shoulder pads, and I have some rhino hulls to convert over to Heresy Era vehicles.

I've got the contents of Betrayal at Calth and The Burning of Prospero to get me rolling. The Cataphractii Terminators will most likely become Siege Tyrant Terminators.
Captain Aethon from BaC has become my Warsmith for the time being. Once I get a hold of a Peturabo model I'll most likely make him the sergeant for the Siege Tyrant Terminators. I'm thinking of adding a servo arm to the model.
Painting is done and the build marches on!
