    Following on from the Centurions, here is a guide for the 2013 Sternguard Veterans.
    It's rather handy being able to change your squad to have all manner of Heavy/Special weapons!
    This walk through also goes for any Tactical/Assault etc. They're all basically the same models. If you do choose to magnetise other squads then it means if you aren't fielding your Sternguard then sergeants etc can be given combi weapons.

    A few notes:
    Make sure your double check your magnets ...

    Centurions are nearly £50 for 3 models. Don't you want to get the most bang for your buck?

    This walk through will show you how to magnetise all weapons that come with Centurions so they can be fielded as Assault or Devastator, using all heavy weapons/drills/Melta/Flamer.

    If you use this walk through, the hoses that attach to the back of weapons will not be used at all.
    Personally I cannot be bothered working out how to magnetise them for something that I feel is superfluous ...

    Painting Lenses and Gems

    It is a fact with many sci-fi and fantasy gaming miniatures that they are riddled with gems and lenses of one sort or another, and often can be a significant part of a miniature’s detail. So much so that if they are missed out the model can look unfinished and fail to live up to its potential. They are also one area which many people are reluctant to try and paint, or have mixed results when they do.

    So in this (hopefully simple) guide, ...

    This part of the compendium will cover notable places and the battles that have occurred there. We begin our journey in the plagued planet of Barbarus, where a young Primarch meets his destiny..


    Best known for its poisonous fog, which condemns the humans of this planet to live in the lowlands why the mutants and sorcerers rule above, and the homeworld of the Death Guard Legion, and their Primarch Mortarion.

    Adopted by a Necromancer, Mortarion's growth and curiosity led him towards the lowlands, findings for the first time his own kind suffering from the raids of the warlords above.

    After earned the populace's trust by fending off a raid, Mortarion began to form a quasi-military unit to hunt down the sorcerers on the highland, an endeavor that attracted the Emperor to be reunited with his son.

    It is often held that Mortarion's background facing warp-touched mutants and necromancers became the basis of his distrust of Magnus and the Thousand Sons, culminating in the Council of Nikaea.


    Primarch Lorgar of the Word Bearers Legion was the founder of the Lectitio Divinatus cult, revering the Emperor as a divine God. After emerging victorious from a brutal planet-wide religious war on his adopted homeworld of Colchis, he took to the stars to spread the Word across the galaxy.

    The Emperor was not pleased with Lorgar's actions, having been equipped with one of the largest Legions in the Word Bearers, his progress in the Great Crusade has been slow, due to him insisting to remain on conquered worlds to create vast shrines in worship to the Emperor.

    By the Emperor's orders, the Ultramarines Legion were sent to destroy Lorgar's perfect city of Monarchia on the planet Khur, and forced Lorgar's Legion to kneel in penitence before the ashes of his failure and to denounce his cult.

    His faith thus rewarded, Lorgar's fall to Chaos began, and his pilgrimage to find out the truth - whether there were Gods to be worshiped - culminated in his Legion's arrival on..

    One of the hallmarks of any Ork army is having lots and lots ... and lots ... and lots of models. To paint all those models, you'll want a method that's fairly quick and easy, and can provide good results when the models come together to form a cohesive army on the tabletop. Here is one way of painting Orks from the Deffskullz clan (though you could use much of this guide for any clan, really) that will let you knock out whole mobs in short order.

    For this article, I use the paint ...

    It was intended for the Horus Heresy Compendium to contain a brief explanation about the characters and notable battles during that period but due to the amount of content still unwritten I have decided to make it in two parts. 1 for characters, the other for battles and places.

    Effort has been made to create a brief synopsis of every character, while inferences of the fates of certain characters given in entries of other characters to create an overlapping chain of entries which when read together, tell the rough story of the Horus Heresy.

    It is with great regret that several organizations (White Scars, Salamanders, etc) are woefully under represented due to the lack of written background information.

    Reader beware: mild spoilers abound.
