I 'll have to get some of those! Both the NDK and Interceptors I believe are a 1 time 'shunt' correct? Do they work as normal JP as well? ( don't have the codex in front of me )

Camera Pics.. Current WIP.

New Lamenter projects. Camera doesn't translate yellow very well . They are much more Yellow than the pic's indicate.


New turrets for kitting out Rhino’s … Base colors applied

Six more normal bikers to fill in the squads. Bikers are removeable for ease of painting.

Base color Stern & Honor guard models.

Got some magnets today so I’ll be able to work on the 2 additional Land raiders. I have a redeemer and a crusader that I want to be able to switch out to normal LR’s when needed. Also needed for my Eldar Wraithknights and Wraithlords weapon loadouts.

Just working on all the black that needs to be filled in on the bikes.. Then a nice sepia wash. Getting my 1850 list together for my day of gaming with Gits.

Odd not working day and night on a display for Adepticon.

I'm considering on my WW turrets doing the covers in white; Hummmm. checkers!

Definitely agree with ya on that. Very weird not working on armies for WM and myself. Maybe Ill actually have some of my own finished minis along with me this year.


Yellows are looking good, if a bit orange in the later pics (prolly the camera/my monitor doing that). Though I dont think I would do the entire cover of the WWs white and checkered. Might be too much. Maybe a thick band of checkers going around it??

True,, if your going to at least attend you'll need to bring an army so at least what's left of the Wardens can get some game time in . Do come up with something.

Thanks, they look so much better than the camera phone indicates,, haven't had the time to set up the good camera and shoot controllable shots. My work room is a mess with multiple armies and projects. My lighting also sucks in general . The forescent lighting doesn't help and I get much better shots during the daytime when the light is beaming thru the window. I really need more light now that he sun is going into winter. Maybe I should invest in some track lighting?

You guys should send me a pic of your set up. I love re-application.

Well... This is from 2009, when I first picked up painting again. In the mean time the desk chair has changed, the telly has been swapped for a big LED, and the amounts of paints and materials have exploded. And I think the biggest, most structural upgrade my painting laboratory has received was an airbursh holder screwed on the window sill next to the terrace door on the left of the computer. Oh, and two new airbrushes...

Well, the need was born from professional use. Graphic- and 3D Design is just handicapped ballet on one screen, but the games that support 2 screens were thoroughly enjoyed as well. Supreme Commander... ah, supreme commander...

Well Star Trek online has to be the only MMO I've every laid my hands on that I still play occasionlaly after having reached level cap. (KOTR was great but I couldn't be bothered with the endgame) Zipping around in my Trek Escort cruiser is just so much fun. Didn't know it supported dual monitors though. Will test that out this weekend! Yay!

Big project at work this weekend, so I don't expect much progress. Did manage to start assembling the Grim Reaper Land Raider ( Grey Knights). I've been holding on to some Chapterhouse door and ramp for years. Glad I finally decided to do this project. They look great and fit really well.

I 'm putting the TL Las-cannons on the front hatches instead of the back. I never understood why they would disembark in front of their weapon systems. Do folks consider this Modelling for advantage?

Really got to get to neatening up the desk... but eh... In time.

Heres my photosetup: Really nothing special. Just a black cloth over the computer monitor, and a desklamp providing indirect light (very important so you dont over-illuminate the mini).

Well, make no mistake, I do not use the airbrush indoors. on the left of that window is the door to the terrace, with a power outlet right next to it. I open the door and spray into the great wild yonder.

And here's my photo setup, also something quickly setup and taken down. I prefer to have the apartment not filled with clutter so I've gotten pretty adept at making that chaos disappear in no time.

The lighting tent is this : https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/640799395/lightcase?ref=discovery
The lights are two 4000K LED light bulbs, and I adjust the height of the light case with whatever I can find.

Sounds like I need to set up a permanent light box.

On the painting side I’m almost done with a Grim Reaper (Grey Knights) Land Raider. Need to so all the details then I’ll get a pic. I'll then finish the Purgation squad and Start assembling a StormRaven. This is such an easier paint scheme than My Lamenters Yellow.

Yep, changes the type to include Jump at the front, so yes a Jump MC for the NDK, quite a nasty surprise if you ask me.

Yellows are looking top notch, I'm trying out yellow for gits's Mantis Maker competition and your yellow is my inspiration

Good luck on the MW challenge. I’m sure you’ll be able to master yellow. As for the GR.. I might think about getting another NDK.

As promised. The Grim Reaper Land Raider WIP. Still need to do some additional details.

Thanks, That and the purity seals bring a bit of spot color. I still need to do a Wash on the tracks and all the lenses.

This brings my GK force to 1540 pts. Remaining will be a SR, another NDK and an interceptor squad!

Picked up another RB for the second Strike squad. Figure that they'll need to be mobil where as the Purgation squad generally won't and the interceptor can shunt. This leaves the NDK, and the Interceptor squad as my last purchaces.

I have till the 29th to finish. Luckly the paint theme is so much quicker than the Lamenters.

Started on the StormRaven build last night.

I'll be travelling to Gits' on Saturday for a fun Filled day of 40K. We should be able to get at least 2 maybe 3 games in. Might be a battle report if Git tables me !
However the plan is to get him up to speed and feel for the 7th ed changes.

I got a supply drop of Ork stuff ( like I'll get to that soon!) 3 Kannons, 6 Meganobs, a Dethrolla for my unassembled Battlewagon, a Gorkanaught and a Morkanaught! and 3 more SM bikes. I also got 2 stormwolf flyers Free ( as part of a promotion - spend this amount and get free stuff ). Was a pain to put together. The second one should go together a bit easier. I'll need to fillsome gaps on them before I prime. I'll paint them their base colors and then I'll be selling then to Yellowbeard!.

When all is said and done ( Unless I should I pass from this world first ) I should be able to field Space marines ( Lamenters ) Necons, Eldar, Chaos Space Marines, Orks, Grey Knights, Nids, IG and Tau. All about 2500 pts except the SM's which are already double that!

No. It's BAD ( built as designed ), It's a normal SR ( not the GK version ) so I'll need to embellish it a bit to make it GK'ish . I might leave the side doors off and get a FW or some CH ones to tie it in.

Always.. we go way back so even if he stomps me I'll have fun! were two guys that play for fun and have no ego when we play. However, trash talking the others dice rolling is gonna happen. May the best Dice win!

Looking forward to seeing pictures of the battles.

So whats your next army project Dark Eldar, Daemons?

   
Made in us






Green Bay, Wisconson

Not going to do those. Just not my thing.

I'll be working on finishing up the GK's first. Like I mentioned earlier I have 1 RB, Storm Raven, 1 Interceptor squad and 1 more NDK to finish. Then done. This actually will be the only army I will be officially be done with. My lamenters will continuously be expanding as I like to have all the choices to play. The games this weekend have shown that I need to make some figures with the most likely load out. Namely the Command squad bikes I like to run with Kahn.

Necons, On hold.. I have 6 bikes, a Ghost arc, Destructor cannon ? 2 more wraiths, 5 lynchguard, and a stalker to finish. I'll need to get some more Crypteks. But I'll wait for the new codex to see how well they get nerf'd.

Eldar, 1/2 painted 2nd Wraithknight, 1/2 painted Crimson hunter, 10 wraithguard, 3 War walkers, 3 gun platforms, a wave serpent and 6 more Dire Avengers to do. I'll also be repairing WB Wraithknight , Just doing a better job of Magnetizing the weapons load out

Next on the build list will be Chaos Marines, I'll need to get some purchases for these. I'm going to do Chaos’s divided, but leaning heavily on A Thousand Sons theme. However I'll be working on uniques leaders. I want a Chao's lord on a Juggernaught (gonna modify the WFB lord figure for that one) , and a Sorcerer on a unique disk for my HQ's.

Followed by Orks, I have almost everything one could want. 2 Gork/morknaughts. 2 planes, loads of boys of all types, 2 trucks, BW w deff rolla. 6 mega Nobs 8 bikes 6 Kans Meg dread. The question I have is what theme to paint them in.

Nids, for which I have most of the models I need. I still need some of the bigger creatures

Lastly IG and Tau, Which I have a few select models. For IG I like the look of the new FW solara Aux. troopers. I may wait till the whole line come out before getting more. Might do it with a 30K look.
