The Cold Steel Mercs Invitational 2017 - Call of the Dragon



Placing the lash on the table and picking up the glass of wine, Nestor stepped back to admire his handiwork.
The angry crimson pattern scored into the flesh contrasted beautifully with his victim’s white alabaster skin.
Quenching his thirst he picked up the lash again, holding it to his mouth he bit into the leather, working in the wine to soften the leather even further. Sweat, wine and blood mingled on his tongue, his Omophagea quickly absorbed the blood-encoded sensations of fear and torment making the Slaanesh Lord sigh with pleasure.
The piercing screams had subsided now to a soft, low moan; lending an almost rhythmic bass to the music that filled the room.
For the briefest of moments the smell of blood, sweat and wine mixed with the perfumed oils threatening to overwhelm his senses, but as quickly as he welcomed the sensation, it had already begun to fade.
Nestor’s vox crackled into life, dispelling the last traces of the experience and leaving his jaded soul empty once again.

A shudder ran down Nestor’s spine as he listened to his Sorcerer’s message…..”The Dragon summons you.”

WIP Chaos Biker Lord


Work continues on Nestor's new ride, not quite at the pace I was hoping for but the build is almost complete. One or two people have been asking how it's going (so many impatient readers on here!), so I thought I'd show the progress I've made......

The Fall of Terra


Greetings Sinners!
Bolter & Chainsword have a great little event going in the Chaos Space Marine Forum called The Fall of Terra. It's a project designed to encourage Chaos Warlords to start or add to their Warband and give each other a (much needed, in my case) incentive to complete our forces.
I jumped at the chance to participate, so I decided to start off with a small manageable project so as not to over-face me. Unfortunately, the best laid schemes of mice and men gang aft agley!

The Long Wait is over, now let's get back to the Long War!


Greetings Sinners!
It's been a long wait for the Traitor Legions; 14 years since the last Codex with Legion rules were published. Finally our time has come again......and I, for one, welcome our new Chaos overlords!

The Caledonian Highlander - Nestor's Return (part 1)


Greetings Sinners!
Last week a bunch of the Cold Steel Mercs attended the Caledonian Highlander.
Michael (Necrons), Neil (White Scars), Iain (Red Scorpions) and my misguided brother, Steve (Khorne Daemonkin) joined me in sunny Stockport for my favourite style of tournament.....the Highlander.

It's been a while.....but


Greetings Sinners!
It's been quite awhile since I last posted. I'd like to say I had very good reasons for this, but the truth is, is that my enthusiasm for 7th edition has waned considerably over the last few months.

Ennui
noun
1. A feeling of utter weariness and discontent resulting from satiety or lack of interest; boredom:

It's the curse that haunts all disciples of Slaanesh, but slowly, ever so slowly, my mojo is returning once more.
