Friday Night Fights Fantasy Edition

Hey so we played a tester game of the new rules, using the warseer rumor compilation pages as our guide!

I had my Chaos Dwarves (dwarf rules) teamed up with Lothlann's Empire vs ChairmanYao's Mortals of chaos and Ca$h's Slaanesh chaos.




I/m sure we got a tonne of things wrong, but it was also nice to see the new rules in play. Man, infantry sure can charge far when your dice are good, in one case we had a unit go 14 inches with movement 4!!!

Behold, Crone World Eldar

I installed DOW purely to mess with the paint program, and it helped immensely, ideas i had in my head either looked like crap, or were too similar (in one case, it was pretty much dark eldar) so instead I just jammed on the "random' button until I came up with teal orange, and green as trim. It hurt the eyes.

And thus:





A few things.. the teal looks brighter in this pic than in real life due to lighting, I may experiment with asurmen blue wash. Also, yes the paint jobs are chunky, these are test figs just defender guardians, so who cares) and have many coats under these.

It's Hard to Suck...

Ok I'm having difficulty...

I have been making lists for Golden Marine for a day or so now, and no matter what I come up with I also end up tinkering to make it somewhat powerful...I can't completely remove my list building skill, I will die!

Ughh back to the drawing board...I'm going to try and make shooty Blood Angels and see how that works out...

For Pete's Sakes

This is for Peter white, how my meltas-from-cities of death pieces turned out:



In this case, the baseline gun is a grenade launcher as you can see, though you could use pretty much anything.. the key is the exhaust thingy from Cities of Death, once that is on there, it could be either a flamer or melta, but then you add the little cylinder and the under wire, and its a melta. Greenstuff wire here, and I used some plastic tubing for teh cylinder, though if in a pinch, you could just make a greenstuff cyliner, let it harden, then slice off the ends so you get clean side cuts and you're golden.

Hope this helps

PS, note how I have to highlight all the green on every guy still for Game Summit.. le sigh.

AAAAAND.. Im Back









So me and the missus went for a long east coast vacation, hence the sporadic commenting from the laptop when I could get some wireless going. Got a LOT of models done for the Squats while I was gone (brought some models to paint for late evenings at the hotels) and only have 6 left to go for my game summit army.

However, I did get to pop in to the Halifax GW store, and I highly recommend anyone out that way to drop in, Dave Switzer has an awesome store, a super good layout too (way better than Bayshore or St L) and a good core of players.

Here are some shots of stuff: (edit: wrong order, since picassa is stupid) Top pic is of Archie's awesome nose art of a nekkid female commisar on his vendetta, next we have Gary's Thunderwolf conversion, based on a white lion, greenstuff, direwolf head, etc. Lastly we have Ken's white scars biker capt, made using vyper parts. The rest of his white scars are stock bikes, but I really dig the futuristic look the eldar parts give it, even if its not that mariney
