Post 400 giveaway!

This marks the 400th post to the Mordian 7th Regiment blog, and first things first today I want to thank all of you readers and followers out there - I truly appreciate all the support, advice, constructive criticism and kind words you've given me over the years! It really means a lot to me, and I thought I'd offer up an old legacy unit of mine as a thank your to commemorate the 400th post.


While going through the display cabinet my eye fell upon the original motorized rough riders I'd built years back. and since these were some of the very first conversions I posted when the blog began back in 2009 I thought they'd be a nice thing to give away.


Anyone who is a follower of the blog that posts a comment here over the next week will be entered into a drawing for them - these guys have been waiting to see some action for far too long! Thanks again for all of your support over the years folks, you guys rock!

In other news, this milestone ended up being a fortuitous conincidence - at this point, all of the non-apocalypse units in the army are now painted! I spent some time pulling everything out and snapped a family photo:


It's been a long road getting all of these guys done, and I'm really happy with how they've turned out. I have to get the Baneblade done by October for Feast of Blades, but I'm thinking that for now it's time to move on to another project for a while - new poll up in the upper right, lemme know what you guys want to see! While rooting around in the Closet of Doom I unearthed a whole mess of Iron Hands that a friend had mailed me prior to him moving overseas. There's darn near a whole army of 'em - just in time to take advantage of the new marine releases. My wallet cries out in terror!

Congratulations on the milestone!

Your blogs a constant source of inspiration for my own mediocre efforts, and your own kind comments on my blog have been much appreciated.

They are some lovely rough riders, and an very generous thing to give away. I'd be too proud of them to part with them!!!

Great group shot of the guard, a real hammer of the emperor if ever I saw one.

Congratulations, my friend. You are one heckuva prolific hobbyist, and an awesome guy to face across a table from. You, sir, NEED to come to Adepticon next year, as I can't make Fast this year :)

Awesome mate. :) I make 100 all chuffed and so forth and you make that look like nothing with a 400th post. ha!

Well done for keeping this up. It's always really cool to come here and see your next works. Keep it up!

That Guard shot is pretty damned sexi with all those fortifications backing the scene.

Congrats on 400 posts!

I don't know why, but in that all-army pic, if you squint right, the Baneblade looks like it has a fat Abrams turret. Kinda cool....

Harlon Nayl said...

400 posts! That is truly and impressive feat!

Your Imperial Guard army is equally impressive. Keep up the great work!

Mordian7th said...

Here's to new projects, eh?

Mordian7th said...

Thanks, Drax! That means a lot to me - especially since your blog was the one that got me started all those years ago.

Cheers, mate!
