Various things

Hi dear blog readers,

I haven't posted for a while so it's time for a quick review of what I have been up to. Here goes!

Painted a daemon Juggernaut of Khorn. Forgot to take pictures. Gave it back to it's owner. Wops:) It looked pretty cool in yellow and brass. I also painted a green Ghoul at my FLGS for Matt. If you're reading this, I want to see how you did painting the rest of them :)

I have also started to play Warhammer 40k, with pretty mixed results. I've found that Razorspam probably works just fine, if you spam them, but two Razorbacks is just too much of a soft target. Same thing with my poor Land Raider. It has a tendency to blow up before it can wreck havoc. My thinking is that I will switch to Rhinos and use the points for a Devastator Squad instead. Five man and four Missile Launchers. And to go up to 1750 points I'm thinking of adding two Vindicators.

Either way since the plan is to build a whole company I should have plenty of options in the future:) Technically two companies since veterans are from the 1st Company :) I'm also thinking that some dreads should be a good idea to own. Three of each kind:) And as a last note about playing, I really am thinking of seeing what you can do with a lot of plasma. S7 AP2 shots would be an interesting thing to throw around :)

I also have been painting. Almost done with Tactical Squad VI for the 4th Company (only IF transfers left) and here's a little green teaser. How's he looking? I'll post again when he's finished :)

Dark Angels green directly on top of a white primer worked really well. Takes a few layers to cover, but you get a free shading in the recesses :)


  1. Bout time you updated! I like the yellow over the green ;

    Now I should go get the 3 valks finished so you have more to paint!

  2. Yeah I opted for Rhinos instead of Razorback and also opted for missile devastators with the extra points.

    The Land Raider is the first thing people will go for alot of the time I feel so I'm thinking about dropping mine to.

  3. @Corsair I can't decide if I like the "yellow" or not. The official Dark Angels seems to go far more towards a Bleached Bone look. We'll see how he looks with highlights and details added :) The green needs one more coat as well, got some minor coverage issues.

    Still have to decide on the basic colors for the Valks :)

    @Warflake I also have some Land Speeders (with Missiles) in the pipeline:) But the Land Raider is one big drain in points. I'm hoping that it will perform better if I get more tanks on the board in higher point games. 2000pt should allow me to add another Tact squad if nothing else:) And I'm thinking of dropping the Assault Marines in favor of two Land Speeders and one attack bike.
