Daemonette of Slaanesh

02/27/2016 1 comment

Got my first Daemonette finished this evening. 

  
This was a very tricky model for me as I didn’t know if I wanted to paint it with bright colours or not. 

Initially I painted the hair a darkish pink but it took too much attention away from the rest of the model. It also didn’t really fit the overall dark and grimy scheme of the rest of my Chaos force. I think I’ll compromise and have some subtle pinks in the unit’s standard.

Insomnia is occasionally a good thing. Last night I used my lack of sleep to get this gent finished. 

  
Now he just needs some friends…

Daemonic Reinforcements Part Two: Pink Horrors of Tzeentch

My acquisition of daemonic allies continues.  I loved painting these guys!

Pink Horrors

I’m currently working on the Dark Angel Dreadnought but, provided I’m not sick of painting greens, I’ll get something Nurgly done thereafter.

Resumption of Normal Service

Bloody hell but it’s been a while!

I’ve been crazy busy at work (and for some strange reason, loving every minute) then at home my wife and I have been finishing off some projects that have been hanging over our heads for far too long.  However, finally, I’m able to get back to my painting station.

While I’ve not been able to finish anything substantial yet, I’m close to completing a squad of Pink Horrors for my Chaos Marines to summon.  Right now I’ve fully completed the Iridescent Horror.

This is Bertrand.  Say hello, Bertrand.

This is Bertrand. Say hello, Bertrand.

The rest of the squad is coming along nicely, they should be done this week.

I’ve also started on a dreadnought for my Dark Angels.

Don’t worry, he’s ‘armless…

As you can see, I’ve used the Dark Angels vehicle accessories kit to pimp this fallen (but not Fallen) hero of the Imperium.  The plan is to concentrate on this chap once my Horrors are done.

For Sale!

A while back I mentioned that I’d be selling some rare hobby stuff for a friend.  Here’s what’s on offer.

Bloodthirster 1 Realm of Chaos 01

While it was near overwhelmingly tempting to make an offer myself, I’m trying to be good for once.  If you’re interested you can find more details and bid should you like them by following these links:

GW 2013 Master Release Schedule

04/02/2013 Leave a comment

Bell of Lost Souls have published what claims to be GW’s release plan for this year, here it is:

January: Warriors of Chaos
February: Dark Angels
March: Chaos Daemons / Daemons of Chaos
April: Tau Empire
May: High Elves
June: Eldar
July: Apocalypse
August: Lizardmen
September: Blood Bowl
October: Space Marines
November: Dwarves
December: Hobbit
January: Tyranids

You can read the original post here.

I don’t know about you but I think that they’ll still bump the marines up the schedule and let’s not forget that the Mystery Box may still not be Blood Bowl, but for the life of me I can’t think what else it could be.

Unless of course, they go mad and re-release Dark Future…

Massacre in Lustria

02/03/2013 Leave a comment

Believe it or not, I haven’t played a game of anything involving little plastic men since last October so I jumped at the chance to take part in a six player, Good versus Evil 4,500 point Warhammer barney today.  I got together with the other chaps who make up the Rock in The Badlands players and spent Sunday afternoon fighting over a ruined Bretonnian Chapel in deepest Lustria.  The rules were simple, three players a side and a basic victory point tally would decide the winning team.

The Battle

Well, it didn’t go so well for the good guys!  We botched a lot of our deployment and struggled to make any headway against the enemy for half of the game.  That said, my Knights of The Realm and Lord along with Sam’s Saurus Cavalry and Oldblood managed to hold the right flank for the entire game however it was far from enough to win the day and we stopped tallying the score in the final turn when we realised that the bad guys were leading us 1,184 to 525!

However, we all had a great time and I thoroughly enjoyed catching up with some of the lads I hadn’t seen in a while and I learned a heck of a lot about how my fledgling Bretonnians work in larger numbers.  That and the fact that Lizardmen cavalry are scary hard.  Oh, and that Terrorgheists are quite capable of screaming nine Knights to death in a single turn!

Stupid dead bat.
