Into the Fires......Vulkan Strides to War

Greetings once again InterWebs!!!!! Well there has been some talk of a big Horus Heresy event taking place in January at the Memphis World of Battle (GW HQ for the US) and I am seriously thinking about going. I have been bitten by the Heresy-bug lately and it would be awesome to get some Horus Heresy gaming going here in the states. Myself and Mordian 7th went to England last year to do some Heresy gaming with the Tempus Fugitives gaming group and that was a lot of fun but it would be awesome to get the same thing going here stateside. To really motivate me while I wait for the second Black Library Horus Heresy book (with the Salamanders inside) to become available I decided to put together the big guy himself......Vulkan!

The miniature is a Legendarion Miniature from the Ukraine. It was a bit of a struggle to get the miniature but I think it was well worth the slight trouble. The miniature came as several pieces all of which were made from dense hard resin. There were very few mold lines to deal with and overall the miniature went together like a dream. Here is a shot of the various pieces:

Here are several shots from various angles showing off the detail on the miniature (of which there is a lot):

Now for some close-up shots:

Love the Gauntlet of the Forge:

To show the rough scale of the miniature I grabbed the closet miniature I had available. After a little propping up of the 'normal' miniature (to bring the feet level with Vulkan's) here is the scale shot:

I got this miniature awhile ago and have been waiting to put it together. I am sure the Forgeworld version of Vulkan will be stunning and I will have to buy it when it comes out but for now this version of Vulkan will do quite well. I can't wait to get some paint on this guy but the weather has been a little to hot and humid to do any spraying so Vulkan will have to wait a little longer for some paint. Thanks for stopping by and taking a look. This is will be a fun journey, come along as I bring Legio XVIII to life!


  1. That is freakin' sweet, man! The perfect start to the legion!

  2. Thanks so much! It should be a fun mini to paint. There is so much detail that doesn't really show up in the pictures.

  3. Big... really big. I'd hate to be on the wrong side of that in a dark alley
