WIP: Tyrant Guard modeling done.

I finished modeling and magentizing  my trio of Tyrant Guard.  I am pretty happy with the look of them. I think they look similar to the new models and I can use them with any weapon load out.

WIP: Tyrant Guard new look.

I had a little time last night while watching some TV and knocked out another tyrant guard.  I decided to try a different position with the cowl and I think I like it better than the first one. Take a look.

WIP: Tyrant Guard

I got some more work done on my tyrant guard.  I wanted to have my old models able to use any of the new weapon options.  So I am testing one out.

WIP: Harpy /Crone and Heavy Weapons Team.

So I had a little time to craft over the weekend.  I assembled the harpy / crone model up to the point where I need magnets.  Then I painted up one of my 4 heavy weapon teams. First some pics.

WIP: Tyrant Guard

So in what little time I have I have been working on fixing up my old tyrant guard to fit with the new ones.  I didn't mind the old one if I was going to use the stock build with scything talons but I thought I might like to try a crushing claw or the bone sword lash wil version so I decided to see what I could do.

Battle Report: IG vs Salamanders

As I said in my last post I got a game in with a good friend, Chosen1 from Team Snake Eyes.  Before the game we got our armies out and had or usual smack talk.  I said how much I would be dying and he said how much I was going to stomp his face. We both have huge egos and are always full of confidence.

Pregame: Imperial Guard Vs Salamanders

I get to play a good Friend, Chosen1 from Team Snake Eyes Blog, before heading back home. He wanted to try out his friendly list for Adepticon. Since I dubbed this month IG month I quickly slapped together an army. Let's look at My list:

Tyranid HQs

Today I am going to focus on the HQ's in the new book. There are some minor changes. The HQ is now needed more than ever since the changes to instinctive behavior has become more punishing. I was praying for an invuln save.  Looks like the answer to those prayers was no.  The big loss was  not keeping the big rule book psykic powers.  Everyone is whining about this so I will save you my rant.  Boo hoo  get over it.

Tyranid Codex Review: The sky is falling!!!

Not really.

The new codex is out and, while I am not excited by the new codex, it is not the end of the world.  Are the new units good? Some are good others are meh.  Is this codex an upgrade? A little if any.

8 Player Escalation Game

This weekend I came back to play in an 8 player Escalation. The theme was imperial vs chaos.I brought 3k of Imperial Guard(IG) which included a Shadowsword as a Lord of War. I asked my teammates if I should use the D strength weapon or should I use the Stormsword with the S10 big blast and They said to use the D.  We thought everyone was going to bring a D weapon. Turns out I was the only one.  Sorry guys. At least it wasn't a titan with 4 shots.

Codex dropping soon and I am overhyped

With all the rumors flying around I think I have already peaked and now am on the downward spiral of gloom.  I wanted this codex to be so good that every rumor looks bad. There are some sites out there with claims of book in hand. I am trying to keep my hopes up and not get depressed about things before I read the book.  in the end I will still play with my bugs.  I love them.  Tyranids always adapt.  I learned to play the last codex after the total nerfing we got.  I am sure I can adjust again.

WIP Monday: Imperial Guard: Bane Wolf, Veterans, and Commissar oh my!

I have been gearing up for my 3000 point game this Sat. The group I play with likes playing painted armies so the special rule is every painted unit gets one re-roll per game. My Imperial Guard (IG) army is mostly done but there still quite a few models to paint.
