5th Company in Retro Style

So back around here I mentioned getting a Calph box set.  Well since then, I caught a sale which combined with some store credit to get me a great deal on a second Calph box.  Then this past week I got a batch of 30K marines off someone in the Tri-City area needing to fund replacing a lost cosplay Mandalorian helmet.  Between the three I've been able to put together an almost entire Company of 30K based marines.  The two assault squads, the Dev sgts, and a couple models in the Command Squad are the only non-30K models in the group.  A trade where I parted with my Bolt Action Americans (I really just like my Brits a lot better, but I kept Lt. Captain America) netted me a Leviathan, plus the 2 Leviathans in the previously mentioned trade puts a nice heavy Dreadnought contingent in the Company.  3 Leviathans backing up 2 Contemptors definitely make an impression.

5th Company, Battle Company "Stone Lions"
    The 5th Company is deployed in squad size forces to major worlds and allies in the Lions area of control.  They help improve those defenses as well as serve as a first line of defense against any incursions.  During an incursion into the Ghoul Stars, the 5h Company was all but destroyed with only a few partial squads remaining.  A few years after, while helping expand and improve the defenses of the Forge World Goedrean, an entire lost bunker was uncovered that was filled with Heresy Era armor and weapons.  The 5th Company was rebuilt with this equipment.

So we're getting towards the end of the chapter.  For those keeping track ... that's 26 Dreadnoughts.  4 Leviathans, 1 Chaplain, 8 Contemptors, 3 Ironclads, 2 Venerables, 8 Regular, and 1 Eddie.  There is still the 6th Reserve Tactical Company which should be close to full I believe and then the 8th Reserve Assault Company which is no where near complete.  I'm probably going to take a small break from this and get a few other things posted up to get caught up and then back to the Lions.  Thanks for reading and I'll see you all next time.


  1. ...you should seek out one of the old Space Crusade Dreadnoughts. Just for fun.

    1. Not sure I've ever seen one of those. I also want to get a Deredeo at some point for sure.

  2. So when does the painting of all of these hordes commence?

    1. Not sure, it's an intimidating lot for someone who doesn't enjoy the painting part. I've got a vacation week coming up and going to try to spend a couple days painting.

  3. Try to spend a bit of time outside too...

    1. That's the granola in Da Cheef longing to camp in wilderness again...
