This project received another golden button! 🙂

The last unpainted miniature I had for this project has been painted. Just when I intended to close this project GW announced a new codex and new miniatures for the Black Templars…

In every project you reach a point where you can’t postpone taking a decision on storage of the miniatures any longer. This project has reached that point.

First attempt

At first I wanted to put my Black Templars in boxes from KR Multicase, like my Imperial Guard army. I bought a box for Primaris Marines. It can store 120 marines!

Once arrived, I wasn’t entirely happy with it. The spaces for the primaris marines are meant for regular intercessors. Assault intercessors with their dynamic poses don’t fit in that well. Furthermore, many primaris marines, such as characters, blade guards and eradicators have a larger 40 mm base and certainly won’t fit in. And off course I would need another box anyway for large miniatures like the dreadnought and the bikes. I didn’t think this through very well before buying this box… ☹

To store a crusade

Second attempt

Then I saw this video from Duncan Rhodes.

The idea of gluing magnets in the bases of your miniatures and gluing rubber steel sheets to the bottom of boxes isn’t new. I store my fantasy armies like this.

What’s new is to use boxes with a bottom the size of an A4 page. This corresponds nicely with the size of the rubber steel sheets. So I bought boxes from Really Useful Boxes: 4 liter as my standard boxes and one 8 liter boxes for large miniatures.

TIP: put the magnets in the bases before you assemble and paint your miniatures. Not afterwards like I did!

To store a crusade

All my primaris marines fit in the 4 liter box except for the blade guard ancient with his banner. In the 8 liter box I have plenty of space left for more dreadnoughts or even a tank.

They stack well too.They stack well too.

And this is the last miniature of the Indomitus box. I really enjoy painting Black Templars. I’ve already ordered some more Space Marines, so it won’t be too long before I continue this project.

Because of the bad weather in this part of the world. Varnishing these miniatures was delayed by weeks.

The water transfers on the side of the bikes, aren’t my usual water transfers from Mighty Brush. Their water transfers are either too small or too big. These are from Green Stuff World “Water Decals – Heraldry” on the photo below.

Intercessor reinforcements

I quickly bought another box of the push fit intercessors before they were sold out. These two will join the intercessors I’ve painted earlier to form one unit.

To make them look somewhat different, I’ve bought new water transfers from Mighty Brush with fancier crosses than the standard crosses.
