Beautiful work SL (as per usual). The red does glow... you must be channeling Damo.

Thanks for all the comments.....Who isn't inspired by Damo's reds!

I'm slow to change. but I'm beginning to learn that you have to highlight farther from the original color to have it look right. Maybe not a far as moonpies white for everything but farther than I usually go. Better pics when......

I've been building a light box. so I've been slowly getting all the parts together. Something I can hopefully leave up. Now I'm torn between a black and or a white background. I was going to go white but Damo's BA on black look really good!

Some work this weekend on Yellowbeards Space Wolfs. Thought it be funny if all the figures had ‘ yellow’ hair. Camera phone cause I’m still building my light box. IMO they look 10x better in person. Motivation for getting my LB finished. Next 10 Grey Hunters and the 2nd Stormwolf.

Wolf lord Erik Yellowbeard ( gotee ?)

10 man blood claws. Leader has options for BP or PP. CC weapons of PF, LC, CS or PS

Wolf guard. Still some thing s to do on these. Drill barrels ect, touch ups. The AC and Hvy Flmr are magnetized.

Thanks.. I'm hoping to get the 2nd Storm wolf and the 10 Grey Hunters done over the weekend.

Tonight I'll get a chance to see the newly painted SW in action. YB and I are going to get a game in before the Holidays. I'll be making a BA list ( thou it looks very generic 5th ed. SM'ish)

Did not take any pics. I keep leaving the camera at home. Ususally I'm too busy to remember as I have to pack up all the figures the night before as I play coming right from work.

Good Game. the two codex's were really well balanced against each other. We played the maelstrom missions ( with the cards). I pulled off a win 10 to 3.

I'll recap some of the game ...

Another camera shot of Yellowbeards SW Lord Erik YellowBeard


Now back to the battle….

Yellow beard had..
Wolf Lord with 10 Grey Hunters in a Storm wolf. Several Plasma weapons In this squad
Rune priest with 10 Blood Claws in a Storm wolf
5 Wolf Guard termies in a Land Raider

I had
Astorath? Joins assault squad In Storm Raven
Libby in Termie armor w/5 man Command with Apoth novice, champion and 3 grav’s In DP
2 Furioso Dreds w frag cannons and MG in DP
5 man Tac in DP
5 man Scout , SR’s and Hvy Btlr
10 man Assault with 2 inferno pistols, combat squad’d into 2 Storm Ravens w/ MM and LC)
Vindi

Vanguard deployment, I go second.
YB deploys his LR w/ termies In back corner. I deploy my vindi in my corner on objective. Scouts deploy near his corner on a elevated overpass.

Turn 1 his LR moves forward but due to position unable to see vindi so nothing happens. My Vindi stays put on objective. Drop pod drops Furioso dread behind his LR and destroys it with the MG. Termies all survive. Tac squad Drop on another objective.

Turn 2 His SW come In. One outflanks behind the vindi and destroys it. CC termies destroy the Furioso but it manages to kill one termie. My DP Csquad comes in and Other fruioso DP both drop close to Termis squad. Massive shooting nothing. Blood lance does nothing. In CCSW termies kill Libby, all but 1 veteran of the Csquad. 1 termie dies. WTF! SR comes in and shoots everything at SWolf .. manages only to knock out a weapon. WTF2

Turn 3 SWolf blows up SR. Assault troop manages to walk away. 2nd Swolf goes into hover and drops Rune priest and blood claws near tac squad. Ensuing shooting and Assault wipes the tacs out. Furiso in CC kills all the remaining termies . Bout time! Flying Swolf shoots up scout squad and leaves only 1 Standing. Assault squad from destroyed SR jumps and runs to capture close objective. 2nd SR comes in and destroys the flying Swolf and it crashes into the hovering Swolf. Loses a hull point. I take a gamble and drop Astorath and his assault troops out of the zooming flyer. Luckily they hit behind cover and don’t scatter. Lone C squad jumps on objective .. remaining furiso dread runs.

Turn 4.. Hover SW flyer moves toward Wrecked SR assault squad on objective . It drops the wolf lord and Grey hunter. They move toward the Assault squad. Shooting kills all but 1 assault squad. Blood claws sit on objective. Storm Raven destroys 2nd Swolf by Hull points. Astorath and his Assault squad jumps Rune priest and Blood claws. People start dying on both sides. Furioso runs again. Remaining Assault marine charges Wolf lord and manages to get a kill before being hacked to death.

Turn 5 Wolf lord move claims objective. CC with the Rune priest unit and Chaplain units result in more SW dying. My SR shoots hovers and shoots at Wolf lord and the Grey hunters and kills more. Astorath challenges Rune priest and kills him outright. The remaining blod claws all die. Game ends.

Conclusion: I thought the two lists were really balanced against each other. The Randomness of the Objective cards allowed me to get a lot of victory point early on. YB seem to get the more difficult objectives or non location cards. If this had been a external war mission I would have lost. I had very little that could have matched his Wolf Lord and the number of Grey hunter remaining. Admittedly my dice were pretty average. Thou the timing and the circumstance of the rolls were timing bad ( such as the CC with the termies ). I also spent more time on trying to secure the objectives than YB , thou having more units to do so worked in my favor.



Automatically Appended Next Post:
So 1/2 day of work tomorrow and then 9 days of holiday. Hoping to get the 10 Grey Hunters finished and the 2nd Stormwolf. After that I'm looking at putting together some more Death company. I think I'm going to strip the ones I did for Adetipicon and repaint them. I'd like to get about 15 total of each ( JP and non JP )

Sounds like a really close battle, is YB going to have any thunderwolves they are really good with powerfists and stormsheilds.

Yeah close and fun. I'm blessed with a bunch of guys that like to play socially. So it's always a great way to hang out and get in some cool games.
Not sure what ( YB) future plans are. I know he has talked about a more 'Feral' army. Wolves. Mastadons as Predators ect.. He doesn't have a lot of time so no telling if this will materialize. Still a great concept thou.

Yeah good game..I like it when its challenging all the way through the turns. Also it gives us a chance to work out the rules we keep forgetting and refreshing the ones we think we know.
Looking forward to sometime in January at your place. Thinking about trying my Imperial knight and Scions as an attachment.

Everyone have a good Christmas/ Holiday/ Hanukah/ Kwanza/ Just Dec 24th ect.. Me ...9 Days Off. Whooo Hooo.

Best to you and all the 'Gravens' as well.

4 day off and looking to start priming. Had a few hours yesterday and decided to try out some test schemes. Had AB problems.. then.. AB breakage. Nothing serious just the side paint cup broke from the feeder stem. Ordered a new on but who know when it'll get here. Oh well.. I probably work on YB Space wolfs.

All the best to you all in the new year!

AB back in action. with the little time I had. I managed to Prime and base coat a bunch of models. Since my time is limited, I gonna take a slower more progressive approach.. I'm doing the same step in the painting process for a bunch of models. Hopefully it'll help me actually get to working all the way thru without bouncing around so much. Boring at times but I might complete something.

Started assembling my light box. In the meantime it's cold in WI.

Slowly working on finishing YB SW's. Looking to get that off my plate.

Pulled out my Ork models since there seems to be a renewed intrest on Orks blogs. After all the number crunching I came out with 4100 pts worth, So while they were out I thought I play around with some themes. Might start another blog to explore this further.

Yeah.. I did the last 10 without Helmets, so went with it. ( Termies as well ) Besides I cannot imagine most of these guys being able to wear Hemets with the hair and beards. ( half of them probably lost their helmets long ago or left them on the ship.)

When I asked YB , he said. Their SW. They don't need Helmets. At least they all use the same Salon.

Finished the 2nd Storm Wolf. This one with white details. Again not much SW embellishments as YB can add if he wants to, There are magnetized options for the MM and Missiles ( you can see on the 2nd photo I knoicked the MM out of it's mount). Camera phone shot since my Phototable is being used as a shelf due to my wife needing the table for her special effect make-up project!


All done on the SW for now. I do have some Friesian wolfs I bought for him as a gift I’ll be painting when they arrive.
