They are also in the box containing Belisarius Cawl. At least all the stats and nameing of the rules... I'm actually not quite sure if the special rules are explained in the box (though I believe they are). I'll check once I get home and update this post! ;)
I've been wrong. There are actually really just the stats and the names of the rules without any further explanation i.e. ,,Canticles of the archmagos".

I finished building an onager dunecrawler (except for the gunner, who will be painted seperatly and added afterwards). I magnetized all weapon options. That was quite some work, but I believe it was worth it. First time working with magnets for me!

Nice work on the magnets! Great way to get the most out of a model. Also allows you to paint the weapons separately so you can hit all the details. Whats next? Painting this up or building the rest?

Absolutly, but it might take me some time, as there are more urgent paintjobs in line!

Thank you very much! Currently I'm still working on five Space Wolf Terminators and a Tech-Priest Dominus. The T-P Dominus is, of course, magnetized to swap the heavy weapons! Didn't bother to magnetize the pistols, though. He'll be carrying a serpenta.

Didn't spent much time painting yesterday. Just a few paint strokes on my terminators stormshields and drybrushed a few metal parts on my tech-priest dominus. I decided to add a "painted 2017" list as my signature in order to keep me further motivated! I doubt it will outgrow the 255 character limit, as I'm a really slow painter. Should it come to that though, then I'll add a list on the first post in this thread.

I like this idea and I think I'll copy it.

What for? The Skitarii? And if so, any suggestions? I plan to place some barbed wire on the base of the onager dunecrawler, though... It's the biggest base I've ever worked with, so I'll surely look into some basing tricks.

you could do the more or less traditional martian landscape theme, just maybe with some battle damaged bits on the ground, since the Mars of 40k has been terraformed, fought on, ruined with industrialization and, I think, terraformed again. Anyway, gives you lots of options :D

Instead of concentrating on my painting pledge (which I failed) I spent two evenings painting this Survivor from the Zombiecide board game as a birthdaypresent for a friend of mine. He looks a bit psychotic, but to be fair, I believe it's a common expression during a zombie apocalypse. :D

Yeah, it such a fun game! Certain scenarios are really too hard to the point I'm not even sure they are winnable though. Especially when you draw an Abomination very early in the game, the brown and green ones in particular.
