WIP Wednesday...

This weekend I painted up some Tau and Termaguants.  I also bought a few Raveners and started to paint them up.  I am trying a new painting method on my Nids. but first here are some pics of my painted tau.

Alpha Strike for the win!!

Last night my Tau and SeeJay87's Tau came ready for battle.  We faced a pure Eldar force with 2 grav tanks (I think a serpent and a falcon) the avatar, a farseer, a wraithlord, 2 squads of direavenger, a squad of fire dragons in one of the tanks, howling banshees in the other, 2 vypers and some guardians, a small unit of dark reapers and finally some snipers infiltrating in the trees off to our right.

New League, New Ally.

So this week at my FLGS, Fantasy Books and Games, we are having a 2-Headed General League.  For the next 5 weeks we will either team up with another person and run 2 1k lists or bring out our split personalities and run a 2k list with a required 2 force org charts.  I was going to bring out the bugs and go solo (like GW gave us any allies anyway)  but my fellow Tau brother SeeJay87 asked if I wanted to join forces.  Even though he commands that traitor Farsight I agreed.

Puppets War has some cool stuff!

I was browsing the Puppets War web site today and I noticed they have a bunch of cool stuff. I picked a few to show off just to let you see a sample of what they got and what I am thinking about ordering.

First off,  We have their Elite Cyber Warriors. I think I have showed these before but they are the top of my order list.  They are going to be a good cryptek unit.

More Apoc Pics

 Here are some more Pics from Stu'E Kahn :) enjoy

40k Fun this weekend!

This weekend was a 40K extravaganza.  I had a Rogue Trader Tournament on Sat which I went 1-2 due to a guy claiming not to have read the FAQ and me leaving that FAQ in my car T.T and Sunday was the 15K Apocolypse game where I got to use my Stormsword.

Just a quick shout out!

Just a quick update on my IG painting.

With the help of Chosen1 from Team Snake Eyes I have almost all 12 of my IG troopers painted.  all that is left is to paint belts, hoses, and plasma bits.  Then a quick wash and a basing and we are ready to play.  Also I want to quickly paint up my Aegis Defense line.  I have base coated it and all it needs is a heavy dry brush, paint in the details, and a wash and it is done.

So it looks like my army will be ready for Sat's tourney.  I am sorry for all the mold lines and horrible paint jobs that you had to suffer through to help me out Chosen1 but your help is much appreciated.

I will post pics of my full army next week so all can see my crappy paint jobs >_< 

Cya next time!

This is going to be a big 40K weekend.

So this weekend I have the Rogue Trader tournament and then the Apoc game on Sunday so this means a ton of dice rolling.  I was going to bring my nids for the tourney but they are no where near to being fully painted so I will bring my guard.  After checking what I have finished I have 12 infantry models to paint to have a fully painted army.  To bad my vendetta is not finished :(

here is the list for Sat.
Company command - 4 plasma guns plasma pistol,1 bodyguard, master of ordnance, chimera

Veterans - 3 Grenade launchers, power weapon, Grenadiers, Chimera
Veterans - 3 Melta guns, plasma pistol, Grenadiers, Chimera
Veterans - 3 Melta guns, plasma pistol, Grenadiers, Chimera

Hellhound Squadron - Bane wolf Pattern

Storm Trooper - 2 melta guns, 1 plasma pistol
Storm Trooper - 2 melta guns, 1 plasma pistol

Executioner Leman Russ - lascannon, camo netting, heavy bolter sponsons 
Executioner Leman Russ - lascannon, camo netting, heavy bolter sponsons 
Leman Russ battle tank - camo netting, heavy bolter

Aegis Defense line

the plan is for the big tanks stay with the defense line getting a 3+ cover save while the troops move out and grab objectives and kill stuff.  With 14 kill points and the age of weak tanks I think I will die but it will be glorious.  With 8 tanks in my deployment zone I think i might be a little crowded but we shall see.

I have not gottne my delivery from GW yet :( so it looks like my stormlord will not have it's main gun  which makes me sad.  oh well something to look forward too for next apoc game.

on the list to paint is

2 sargents
1 commander
3 melta gun vets
4 vets
1 master of ordnance

Tonight is a painting party at my friends house.  hopefully I can make some headway into my list.

Happy humpday all!

almost there...

Just a quick update on my spore pod.  I did some touchup on the blue and did some dry brushing on it.  I think all that is left is some highlighting on the armor plates and a dull coat to take some of the shine off the plates.  take a look.

I am not sure if the league is going to start up again this week or next so I don't have a list yet but I am starting to formulate a 2k list for my nids.

Happy Tuesday.
