Moving and a Going Away Present


This past month has been crazy.  The main reason for the craziness is that I am moving.  I will be leaving the DC area and moving to the mid-west. While I won't miss the traffic or the crowds, I will miss an awesome gaming group.

Hobby Time: DIY Wound Markers


With the release of 8th edition we have seen an increase of wounds on most of the non infantry models out there.  Most of these have more than 6 wound making them harder to track with our standard dice.  We could use mulitple dice or different dice to keep track but I think maybe a wound counter might be a better solution.

A New Era has Begun!

This weekend I had the chance to get in 3 small games of 8th edition.  We each played 1000 points army from a different faction.  Even though one game does not give a complete picture of how well or bad and army or unit is, it is a glimpse of what it can do or downfalls it may have.

WIP hormagaunts


In 8th edition, the role of the lowly termagant has changed slightly.  Sure they are still cheap little guys that help bubble wrap our larger monsters from charges.  The difference now I don't need the never ending supply of models since the tervigon doesn’t make new units unless I set aside points for it.  This means that I don’t have to worry about not having enough models when it is time to make more guys since I am only replenishing models that have died.  So, when I found a fresh box of termagants I thought why not makes some hormagaunts.

8th is Here!

 This weekend 8th edition came out.  with all the leaks and previews that have spilled out I have had a good look at this new game.  Now that I have the book in hand I am working though the rules and units on my own.  This bring me to my first dilemma: Toxicrene or Morkanaut.

Seraphim


I continued to paint up my Sisters of battle.  This time I painted up a seraphim.  This could be a superior or one of the Gemini siters that go with Celestine. With the new edition I am not sure what it will be.

Feelings, nothing more than feelings


Last week, I looked at the past and how I did in 7th.  Today I think I will take a look at what we have seen for 8th with three of my favorite factions: Tyranids, Orks, and Genestealer cult.

So Long and Thanks For All the Fish.


With all of the news coming in about 8th edition, I wanted to look back on my record in 7th.  My group has one last hurrah left and that will be a big apocalypse game.  Since that won’t affect my records, we can look at how I did this edition.

Showcase: sister of battle alternative


After assembling all of my new Sisters of Battle, it is time for me to actually paint them.  With the help from my wife, I laid out several different choices and this scheme was the winner.

WIP: Seraphim



I am sorry that I have not been very active with my blogging the past few weeks.  Both work and school has really gotten in the way.  Today I have my built Seraphim squad for my sisters of battle army.

So this week I had a surprise arrive in the mail.  Three new non Forgeworld grot tanks. I was so excited I had to assemble them. (sorry Sisters)

WIP: Starting work on the Sisters




Now that I am back from my trip, I can start to focus on other projects.  A few come to mind but the one I really want to get started on is my Sisters of Battle.

My trip to MiniWarGaming


Last week I packed up 4 armies and headed up to Niagara Falls to meet with the boys over at MiniWarGaming.  Ever since I became a vault member of MiniWarGaming, I have wanted to head up there and challenge them to a battle.  I was excited and looking forward to a few days of 40k Fun.  They did not disappoint.

Showcase: Ork Rides


My final preparations for my trip to Miniwargaming next week I need to finish painting up a couple of Ork Rides. Check out the images after the hop.

Showcase:Acolytes


Along with the neophytes I had several acolytes that I had to work on.  Here are a set of five.

What Should I Do????

So I have a Dilemma.  When I thought about my trip, I knew I had three days of gaming.  I know usually they shoot one game a day.  With this in mind I thought one army per day would be good enough. Everything was fine and dandy until I did the impossible. I finished painting my genestealer cult.

Showcase: Neophytes

Last week I continued to press forward trying to get my genestealer cult painted.  I had a bunch of acolytes and a few neophytes that need to be painted.  This post I will show off the neophytes that I have completed.

Action shots from gameday


A while back I went to a special Game Day where we hosted (more like Christopher hosted) a group from another gaming club.  It was a great day where I played three games and faced off armies and general I have not seen before.  Here are some shots from my second game.

Showcase: Neophytes Hybrids


Over the weekend I made a push to finish my Genestealer Cult before my big trip.  I was able to complete a batch of 11 neophyte hybrids.

acolytes and magus


Recently I painted up a magus and a few acolytes.  Unfortunately, I have not had the time to show you guys so here they are.

Showcase: Genestealer cult


Last week I had a few random genestealer cult members sitting on my desk.  Since they were primed the same time as the Goliath, I thought that I would get them painted up before I moved on to other tasks.

Showcase: Goliath Truck


I finished painting my Goliath Truck for the genestealer cult. The painting went realitively quickly.  Lets take a look.

WIP: Goliath Truck

The project this week is my Goliath tank that I got for my birthday. I knew I wanted to magnetize it so I could run any of the options that are available.  Here is a quick look on how it turned out.

Showcase: Belisarius Cawl


After I worked on my metamorphs, I decided to change it up a little bit and work on the lastest addition to my Ad Mech army, Belisarius Cawl.

Showcase: Iconward and Metamorphs



Last week I worked on my metamorphs and an Iconward to lead them.  With a batch of 5 to work on I knew I could get them done before the game day on Sat.  I already felt bad that my neophytes and acolytes were either grey or primered so getting all of my metamorphs painted is a win.

Showcase: Metamorph repaint


In my last post, I talked about how one of my acolytes was built in an illegal configuration. I also said that I could make it a metamorph.  I decided to repaint the model instead of trying to replace the arms. It was the best and easiest option. Here is the completed model.

Showcase: Genestealer Metamorph


Over the weekend, I had some time to add the finishing touches on some metamorphs that I have been working on. I am taking a break from the orks now that the apocalypse game is past and I am refocusing on getting my genestealers painted.

Showcase: George the Stompa

With work and school, I have had little time to do anything hobby related except for play in a great Apoc game and finish up my Stompa, George.

Showcase: Flash Gitz


With a week left before our big Apocalypse game, I decided to work on some of my orks.  One of my goal from last year was to finish up my flash gitz.  Since they were partially painted, I was determined to finish them before the weekend. Here are the fruits of my labor.
