Tau and Templars

Binx and I have finished the current crop of Tau, 3 hammer head and a skyray turret along with 37 assorted firewarriors and pathfinders - dipped ;o). 
Also finished are 10 Templars scouts, neophytes, human shield or whatever you prefer to call them

Paint Station

Wanting to join in the hilarity which is paint station watch, here is mine

Jezzails for the frugally inclined

I know it's been a while since I raised my head above the parapet, but the guys up here don't play WHFB or 40K, so things have been a bit lax on that front, and army building has kind of dropped off as a result.  Got some nice 10/15mm skirmish forces done, though :)

But, figuring that it would be nice to do some work on a GW model or two, I found an interesting conversion on that got my attention.  Someone had given plastic Clanrats Kroot arms to make Jezzails. Looked okay, if you can accept the long arms and bird-claw hands.

I couldn't accept that, but the left arm was a P.I.T.A.  Still not sure if it looks right...



Random musings: Suicidal Tendencies

One of my favourite old bands (ST for life!) but also a new tactic for low level wizards?
This article brought it to my mind:
It's not just our group that's noticed it. I've seen Binx and Tomarse use this to some effect (plague furnace into a big hole!) and I'll be honest I'm not sure I'm keen! Seems a bit gamey?
However its going to be a feature of 8th Edition and I'm also not saying I'll never try something similar!

In honour of a rare comment from Big Papa (where've you been?!) on Binx' paint station I thought I would post a shot of my paint desk to show we're not all that tidy!

It really does need a tidy up!! I just don't get the time......

I choo choo choose you

Chaos Marine Chosen are done, 16 days behind schedule, now onto the Terminators, hopefully done by the end of the month (although im sure they will run into November)

After them just a Landraider and a Keeper of Secrets to do and thats 3700pts painted.

Rather than a picture of just my completed unit I thought Id show my paint station instead.
