One day Till I leave to Wargames Kon, My living rooms is amess with the flurry of activity, Was taking two Friends that were going to the doubles but one had to drop out. Long story short three days and 1000 points of Angels painted to table top quality, woot. Just have to finish up two pods and paint some bases then, off to the Kon.
I will be rooming at my brothers place since it is Cheaper.
Added a Twitter Update thingie for minute to minute war games con Updates, will be taking camera so there will be great shots of opponent armies and painting competition. Hoping to experiment with Video camera and battle reports but maybe.
Picking out my Wolfguard has always been difficult when they become crushed into swirling melee on the table top so I decided to make them stand out alittle more on the table. After seeing the Fiery weapon tutorial on linked from Ron's page, felt it would be an intresting look to apply to a powerfist, as in the fluff the fist is used to gouge out material and such.
Finished my preheresy Raider with a step by step will post that alittle later. I kea has a great deal on small lights that are great for making a photo box. Pictures to come.
I do love me some forgeworld, but, lacking in hobby funds and time, due to impatients and upcoming dates, it is not an option. So being a decent crafter and having time on my hands to build, while being out of school, I took to building my own Pre-heresy, raider.
This is only the left side the raider, built it then took pictures of it, on the other side I want to get a step by step done for all those would be budget customizers. Magnets added so I can run it as any type of raider. Hoping to give it a feel as a chapter relic that has been upgraded so that it can serve more then one roll in the chapter.
Taking a break from my wolves and it has led me to playing the blood angels.
Playing at a 1000 points, is very interesting, while most armies fields one maybe two elite and/or heavy support. I have seen two Redeemers, Baal preds and other such nonsense.
While helping people prep for bolscon, local players participating in the doubles tourny will be fielding blood angels with their FNP rules along with nids. Its a nasty combo, by interpreting the rules for bols armies can share powers.
So FNP along with Nids army wide Furious Charge and Regens.
List I helped build:
Doom of Malentai
The Spawning nid bug forgot whats it called.
gaunts and more guants.
Monsters will be deep striking.
Be warned this lays down six ap 3 or lower templates a turn. Along with Dooms sick power, it is a very powerful list. Then I was asked what could beat it. Hopefully you guys have some ideas. What I can see is a few well placed lascannons, and meltas could stall this list.
But I recently purchased a new one. Still getting familar with it.
Turq squad was the first squad to be painted the one with the cape is a stand in for Ragnar but will soon become the standard for all my wolf guard which there will be five of in the end.
Red squad came out well they need more work took to be fully painted up come the con. The headare taken from Chaos maruaders, these guys usally accompany the rune priest into battle. These also got the Special bases i picked up from Iron halo.
Blue Squad, I was disappointed because the primer frosted them making thier armor look rough as sand paper.
