After doing the conversion to make this model have a dual autocannon weapons loadout, I took a little bit of time to get it painted up. It was a little bit of time too. This was one of the quickest and easiest models to paint. Only took me about an hour. For a speed painted model it looks pretty good on the table which is all I'm going for here.
I need help making a competitive 2000pt blood angels list. I have some ideas on what to start with (Supreme command detachment and vanguard detachment) Basically looks a little something like this. Command Supremacy Detachment Sanguinor Lemartes Librarian w/JP Base Sword Pistol F&K Vanguard Detachment Sanguinary Priest w/JP Base Power Sword Pistol F&K Assault Squad (JP) Marine x10 Flamer x2 Power Sword x1 Chainsword x9 Bolt Pistol x10 Combat Shield x1 Assault Squad (JP) Marine x10 Meltagun x2 Power Sword x1 Chainsword x9 Bolt Pistol x10 Combat Shield Axe Guard SG x5 Axe x 4 Power Fist...
An Unstoppable Painting Juggernaut! My current painting campaign is continuing well. Despite recent debacles I'm still painting Astra Militarum. I'm really enjoying painting up my old lead models. they have plenty of character, and as they were bought quite a while ago, I'm being pretty economic with my cash. So without any more waxing lyrical about possible lead poisoning and licking the tips of paint brushes, here's some prose and pictures; Men Carrying Things First up are two demolition charge holders and a member of a lascannon (I think) weapon team. It seems carrying said demo charges...
With the drop of 8th edition the dual twin autocannon loadout for dreadnoughts has been very popular and for good reason. I've had two dreadnoughts for quite some time that came in the Assault on Black Reach set from a few editions ago. Decided to do a little cutting and scratch building to achieve the appearance of twin autocannons.First I used a hotwire cutter to remove the previous weapon loadout on both arms. Using some round sprue from Malifuax models and a bit of brass tube and we're done...
This model is one of the best sculpts that Privateer Press has ever produced. I've wanted one for years but the model's rules in MK2 were pretty terrible. However, it's MK3 rules are pretty solid so I finally picked one up.I've since stalled on this project, regrettably I've been pulled away to other projects. Hoping to get back to it soon to finish. ...
So largely in part to Tyler's generosity at Summer Slaughter and the kind votes I received for best painted army, I'm in the unique position to plan out an army. In the past I've kinda just bought stuff on a whim in order to accomplish a particular goal or fill in a gap in my Dark Eldar or World Eater armies. Oh, and if a model looked cool it'd become an acquisition. The result over many many years is pleasing to me but since I have two playable armies this new project will be a bit more focused. Here's the plan: I'm gonna create a traitor guard army (with CSM auxillary). I have a story kind...
