Oldie but goodie

I really like the old Possessed CSM metal mini's and since I am on a tight Mini budget right now I am getting around to painting all I got.  So I finally got some time to devote to this guy.  I know they are seriously unpopular but I love these guys and would really like to find a way to field them

I have to say the new DE look awesome

Took this from bols this morning.
I am not a huge fan of things Elf-ish but I have to say these look downright awesome.  Well done GW.  I hope they can pull this off since i think it could kick off a wave of very cool stuff.  I will not be getting these personally but it did insight a quiver of temptation which says a lot since they are elves.

I have high hopes that they are great IG killers and help even out some of the burly SW/BA armies out there that I have seen.

Huron: The Pimpmaster and spending cheese, new items on ForgeWorld.

This guy is out of control.  It has me eyeing my credit balances to make a monster order from ForgeWorld.  Hopefully sanity prevails.

I havent seen this on the web yet but it looks rad,

Pink Horrors pretty much done

Got the batch pretty much done today.  I got to figure out a better way to take pics since these recent ones have sort of looked like ass.  Just a little touch up to do and maybe some extra gold to bring it out again after the flat finish.

I am getting close to the end of my CSMs.  I have some bikers that have sort of been a labor of love but I am also finished.  I have started to eye some Warmachine minis but who knows.  I am having a hard time committing to an another GW army and Warmachine is starting to look more and more interesting.

Test Pink Horror done

I think I got him to where I want them to be.  They are fun to paint and look very cool.  GW did a great job with the plastics and I am hoping to crank them out this week.

Hopefully more pics soon as I start to get them done.

Pink horrors are Slimer

The more I paint these the more I think they are from Ghostbusters except that they are pink instead of Slimer green.

Starting in on the Pink Horrors

Finally got them all built and primed.

Only bummer is that I only have black primer so they are going to need some coats to brighten up.  Hopefully I can get em close to the GW images but we shall see.  I know a lot of people dont like how these new horrors look but the plastics are pretty nice with some awesome quality. GW is getting these plastics down and I am very impressed with the models and quality.  I should have some pics soon and once I am done with these I will have my 20 Lesser Daemon mob good to go.

Abaddon good to go

Got this wrapped up yesterday and I am pretty happy with it.  Special thanks to the gifter that financed the purchase for my b-day.  I like how he looks, the only thing I was bummed on is that I couldn't get the face to where I wanted it.  Its a little too greyish and the eyes are odd.  I tried as hard as possible to match the GW website and I like how the armor turned out.  I used black paint as a base, then dark grey highlight, then a dark grey blend wash, followed by this black glaze that's pretty cool.  The effect isn't bad but I think it got dampened a bit by the Flat Finish.  Sometimes I wish I didn't have to spray em with the Flat but I know I will beat it up too much when playing.. I cant wait it get him on the table and have him flying out of the Beast.

Thinking about Abaddon

I picked this model up with a little extra b-day money that I got and finally started painting him.  The model is less than stellar to tell the truth and I have pondered getting another Plastic termie lord just to use the body from that.

Well any way I decided just to get him done and maybe start using him to mess around with.  He is the burley for CSM and I would love to see him abuse some Space Marine ICs.  I will try and get some pics up tomorrow when things start coming together.  I still love the idea of having Abaddon and Kharn in the same army for hardboys :).

Recent work

I got motivated recently to start cleaning up all my unpainted minis. Great way to save money and start using stuff I have already paid for. Here is my new HQ: Kharn and his little Bloodletter friends that I just finished a batch of 10 of.

Next is the horrors and a couple LasCannon CSMs that I got some bits for as well.

Recovering for a 40k sexless orgy and assassin rumor

Replenishing my brain from a punishing weekend of 40k, Modelo and fried chicken.

It was a lot of fun to be playing again since i haven't really had a chance to knock some dust off my mini's since my little game day in July.

I was very happy with my Sisters this weekend.  Even though I lost 3 out of my 4 games I learned a lot and got in some great games.  I got a double dose of Nids which while at the time was a bit painful overall it was a great learning experience.  I now know how to bring it to Nids with my girls and give them a good game.  I did need more flamers to truly beat them but I am not sure how to get that into my army without sacrificing some melta.

The other big achievement for me was to finally beat a IG list with my girls.  I have consistently had a hard time dealing with IG firepower and now feel that I can at least have a gameplan for confronting IG.

Overall it was some great games and great company.  I wish it was something I could get to do more often and it was great to have a chance to lay down some Imperial justice with my girls.

In other awesome news I was super stoked to see this on BoLS this morning:
Assassin Stats:
WS:8 BS:8 S:4 T:4 W:2 I:7 A:4 Ld:10 SV:4+/4+i

Move thru cover

Hopefully they have some sort of grenades so that they can charge in cover but overall it looks pretty awesome.  I just hope that they allow Witch Hunter armies to get these as well and dont make them a Daemonhunter army only.

Get ready for a game day

Getting the girls ready for a little fight night then long fight day.  I decided on the girls because the list does kick some ass if I stay slinky and a lot of people that are going to be there haven't played them much..

So the list I am going to roll with is:
Palatine with Celestian Ret 2 meltas
3 Celestian Immolators with 2 meltas HvyFlamers
3 Battle Sisters in rhinos with 2 meltas and Vet Sup with Combi melta and Book
1 Battle Sister squad on Foot with Vet Sup all bolters
3 Exorcists
I have some extra points to juggle around but the big change is the ditching of the hvy flamers for the girl squads.  I love the flame but really have enough on the immolators and I need the melta punch.
