Elevator To Hell, Going Down!

First of three drop pods for Jonny boy and it's safe to say they are a bit of fucker to build the first time.

Angels of Despair

As you can see I have whipped up a couple of test figures for my next 40k project. I am torn between either Luna Wolves or Blood Angels but which ever I choose, it would be a Pre-Heresy army. Neither of these schemes takes long to do.

Blood Angel is black, Mech red, black wash, Mech red and Blood red

Luna Wolf is white, black wash, white (two coats) black line.

So get voting, it's on the side somewhere.

Tale of..... Late Result!!

Totally forgot to put the final table up for the tale of round robin!
The details of the game elude me slightly (as it was so long ago!) but it went a little something like this:
  • The High Elf and Lizard combo shot and flamed the Dark Elf and Rat mash-up
  • Dark Elves and Rats miscast, a lot, and blew their own wizards up
  • High Elf and Lizards smashed the remainder of the Delf/Rats from the table
  • One small highlight for the Dark Elves was the cold ones slaying all the silver helms
  • Result: Massacre for High Elves and Lizards

Feel free to add any further detail!

This left the table looking like this:

Elemberels Expeditionary force - 20

Kraken Host - 15

Chee-Ti Lizards - 8

Sneek Sneek’s Rats - 3

Elves top the table and the lizards just about save some face! However we all now have to face the power of a fully functional Lizardman army!

See you soon for next years "Tale of............" contest!!!!!!

Big and Small

The Lizard production continues, this time its 28 Skinks and 3 Kroxigor.

With a little conversion work the skinks have a command group using the chief and standard from the Stegadon box and a hand bell taken from the Flaggelants I am using to make my latest Blood Bowl team.

With still a good few months until the big 6k Lizard vs Skaven fight all I have left to paint is

6 Lizard swarms
15 Cold one Riders
Old Blood on Carnosaur
Skink Chief
Skink Priest
Old Blood on Cold one
Scar Veteran Battle Standard

The movement trays will be finshed once the army is done

Charge of the Light (Chariot) Brigade!

Right then, I ended my last Celt update with the question:
What next? Chariots or another unit of foot warriors?
Hands up who guessed chariots?

Smart arse!
I went with the chariots for a number of reasons namely when you think of Celt armies you think of loads of blue painted, frothing warriors backed up with thundering chariots, right? Based on that it seemed the right option.
That and they'd be easier to get done quickly!
I actually brushed the dip on these fellas and it may be something I do for the future as it was easier to control where the dip/shading went and prevented too much pooling though it possibly ends up a little too light in places. Something to review though definitely.

This brings the Celt running total up to a mighty 741 points!

Now to get on with that unit of warriors.....

Pitch and Catch

My new Blood Bowl team continue to come along steadily, this month I've painted the Throwers and Catchers.

As well as doing this I went mad and repainted all the skin on all 8 of my now completed players as I wasnt happy with the first results.

Just the 4 Blitzers to go, hopefully I'll do them this month....
