Display Cabinets

A few days ago, there was a discussion on twitter about display cases and such. I was asked for pictures of them. I also mentioned that there was an entire battle company of Ultramarines as well. I was once again asked for pictures. So, here we are with them…

This is the Black Legion cabinet, within dwells Abaddon, Teal, Falkus Kibre, Khayon the Black and a few pals of theirs. Also some fliers. The rest of the cabinet is filled with chaos space marines and other nasties.

The next cabinet contains the Thousand Sons, the walking around Ahriman and their chums – picture turned out grainy, it is evening and the light is sub par.

Here is the dreadnought attached to ‘Special Squad’ – a place dedicated to all questionably painted miniatures. Try and guess why he was sent there…

Between the Black Legion and the Thousand Sons is the Ultramarines. Nervous and unsure, they are all there to ensure no uber violence occurs when I am not about. Primaris and Guilliman at the top, regular dudes occupy the rest of the space.

Then there is the Death guard…

This is the whole lot – one wall of our house… There are also minis in many other places dotted around the place too.

Space Marine Sunday

Sometimes, you have to stop and take stock of things before you know how to proceed. When the other half suggested we spend the day Sunday ‘Playing with Space Marines’, I was only too happy to comply.

Pretty sure there is space for more people here!

I will be the first to hold my hand up and say I don’t really have much of a clue about what I am doing, just picking bits up here and there and doing a lot of editing and reading around the subject. I do enjoy learning the new aspects of this hobby however and my enthusiasm is making up for a lot of what I do not know.

Seeing everything we have laid out in all its ‘glory’ sure helped, though not everything has been built yet. It illustrated that the focus of this Chapter is going to be the use of tanks, of which we have many.


The intention is to split the squads of ten into two groups of five and transport them in the Razorbacks to the field of battle. This helped me picture some of the background for how squads are trained, of which there will be a story coming soon featuring some of the characters I have drafted – some of which I have already written about, some of which are new.

 I did spend the rest of the day painting a further two dudes, which takes us up to a grand total of three finished ones. Only nine hundred and ninety seven left to go! Now that my friends is progress!
