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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 :).
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.
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 Fleet Fearless
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.
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
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.
CSM List Huron DP with lash/wings 2-10 Zerker squads with 1 pfist champ and 1 Plasma Pistol in rhino 2- 10 CSM squads with 1 pfist champ and 2 meltas in rhino 2- 3 oblit squads 1 Tri Las Pred 1 Land Raider with 4 termies loaded out with 1 Cfist on champ and 3 combimeltas +1 hvy flamer
