Ok.. should be done .. Grim Reapers ( Grey Knight Army)
This Army was fun to paint. I mixed black and gunmetal to produce a darker looking armor. Using Bronze for the metals with Greens and reds for spot color.
Libby.. I’ll need to get e better pic. Somehow the resolution is messed up.

Interceptors

Purgation squad

Full Army . Standing at 2131 pts with no extra )( Missing the Las Plas turret on the Rhino/RB) ... Oh and I forgot the LAND RAIDER.. Dohhhh! I'll added it to the next ' Full' army shot!



Next up.. Clean my Shop.. I'm going to build a Light box and want it permanently set up so I need to find some space. I'll get some better pics when complete. Hopefully my friend will find this as fun to play as it was to paint.

Cool stuff solar. I think i like the dark gray knight look better then the shiny silver look most people use. Great idea on the light box too. It would probably save you a lot of time in the long run.

Nice, Solar. You are a good buddy. The best thing I ever do for Ice is occasionally take out the garbage. Next time I do that he is going to look at me and say, "Great. Now where is my Gray Knight army?"

Hope he enjoys it. Give him my best when you see him. Hope he is doing well.

The pink army always wins. You beat the pink army? Go ahead and brag about it. You lost to the pink army? Well, then....

Thanks Moon. I be happy with the garbage removal! No... seriously. Or at least someone to muck out the barn. Even Better!

I'm sure Ice would appriciate you painting an army for him or taking out the garbage more often. Win either way!

Back... Had a good couple of games, thou they were all instructional so nothing to show.

I'll definitely have to get another NDK. It was the toughest thing in the game. Survived just a ton of shooting. Ironically the last game saw it fall with a roll of a 1 on a 2+ Save from a Boltgun after rounds of las cannon shots.

Styro: This took me about a month to do. It was a easy paint theme. The build and little details taking the longest.
Prime Black. Base: Black/gunmetal 50/50. Bronze details with standard parchment scrolls and seals. Drybrush gunmetal.. Blue w lighter shades of blue for all the PW's Drybrush white...Done.
The'll need to be based.

What saved me a bunch of time was the airbrush. On darker colors it's a great time saver.On my yellows its tougher to do with all the clean up and detail colors.

Ok.. be a bit of a break as my shop heater is not working correctly. effectivily shutting me down till repaired ( or replaced - in that case, I'm out for the winter ) Sigh~
If I get it going I'll be working on finishing up all the half finished stuff. Bikes. WW turrets, Pred Turrets, Special weapon inf. Imperial Knight and Dreads. Never ends!

You'd probably get hit. He's so animated when he rolls his dice. Not to mention constantly sharing his views on the game inability to accurately portray the Emperors finest in game mechanics ( audited for political correctness )

I'll have to get a hold of YB and see about getting some games in.

Ok.. haven't been dong anything lately due to work and the sudden cold of the frozen Tundra. Did manage to get a deeply discounted Stormclaw box set so I've added to the hoard of Orks as well as got some additional Space wolf figures I'll do up with the Stormwolfs I'm painting for Yellowbeard. ( not starting a new army!! )

Hopefully I'll get a day during the US thanksgiving holiday for a full day of me time!

Intresting ( or am I missing something) that Spacewolfs are not that popular of an army on Dakka. Gallery search was a bit sparse.

I don't think SW have been particularly good since 5th edition where they were king. The devaluation of assault and ascension of marine units that aren't particularly space-wolfy has relegated them to the back-burner (and apparently the new codex didn't do them any favors.

I think a highly mobile SW army with pods, flyers and (actual) wolves might be pretty exciting to play in maelstrom missions... but I'm not sure it'll measure up to the top performing lists in any competitive situation.

Well, I'm not sure if the things that are "hot" right now in regular marine lists (TFCs, bikes, cents) are actually in the SW dex. I guess it would take someone whose seen the new dex to chime in.

We do have bikes they are called Swiftclaws and have WS/BS 3 , um yeah and no access to Grav guns. Thunderwolves are really your best bet with Stormshields and fists and uber lords and ironpriests on thunderwolves to go with them.

Edit: we dont have tfc's or cents but if you ally with us you can use our drop pod for your cents

And don't forget, the Space Wolves now have access to floating chariots! Makes the enemy easy targets while they're staring slack-jawed in disbelief when you whiz by, jingling bells and throwing around colourfully wrapped pakcages that make a ticking sound.

I'll paint what I have and pass it on to YB.
I believe 2 five man squads of normal PA Marines. 1 squad of Terminators, 1 lord, 2 stormwolf flyers. I believe he has some TWC and other PA Marines.
I just be painting the basics and he can do with them what he wills.

I too am fearful that they will get the SM standard dum-down treatment. There are lots of rumors, Not holding out thou. GW didn't show any love to the SW, CSM and the Orks, I don't have much faith to hold on to.

I have lot of other things to finish up.. Namely my SM bike list. This is what I normally play when I game with SM. I need to make sure I got all the right elements without proxiying. After that I'm not sure. Itching to do something different... Maybe Orks. I have a ton of them.; Thou I still have Eldar and Necrons to finish.. oh and CSM ( kinda missing some models so I might wait on these ).

Curious.. Does your painting drive slow down during the winter months?

Eldar most likely.. I think I'll wait to see it there is a new Necron Codex in the future.

I really need to get some gaming in!
