Return to Isstvan. Phase 2.

The deadline has elapsed. The challenge is over. The dust has settled. Well, that’s what I thought. It seems if you roll a snow ball down a mountain, sometimes, it keeps on rolling. We never thought it would develop into an avalanche. The start of 2021 saw an explosion of new armies being pledged, new…

I’m hot. Really hot. I can hear the chortle of Australian readers, but there’s a reason I live on a cool damp rock (Britain). The #returntoisstvan project feels like it’s hit that 4 week wall. If you’ve ever been on a diet you know what I’m talking about. Week 1: Why I love salad! Week…

#returntoisstvan Month 1 round-up.

The project launched with a BANG and has continued apace. Even with Forgeworld’s doors being closed there is still some hot heresy action as modelers rifle through their mountain of unpainted resin and plastic.  The project is still in its early stages, refining itself with each new conversation. A date has been set to complete…

#returntoisstvan – Visual Library of Choral City, The Precentors Palace & Siren Hold.

Istvaan III had two primary battlefronts: The Precentor’s Palace and The Siren Hold within Choral City. The images have been gathered from the Forge World’s Betrayal and the Horus Heresy Trading Card game. Unfortunately, most images do not have a description of where they are set. I’ve used my best judgement based on the descriptions…
