More finished. 221 models for the year now. whipped these Havocs and Termies up in a couple of days for Mr Moody, they're part of his chaos army. i've just started more sisters of battle for him, this time it's two penitent engines and 2 immolaters and an exorcist so they should have updates soon too.

Getting close to halfway there now! 226 finished models with the completion of 2 penitent engines and 3 sisters of battle tanks! I really am pleased with how they look, a really nice centerpiece for the army
The details are stupendous and I think these new sisters models are some of the best GW have done in recent times, the designs and aesthetic are top notch and really convey the church of war vibe! I find the scheme being mainly a 3 colour palette works well with the silver, red and gold and looks suitably regal and visually striking.

I just love the way those turned out Damo! However you did the main body color... it complements the bling (red and gold) perfectly!

Thanks guys, the main body colour is funnily enough a very simple silver, literally black undercoat with a zenithal silver prime and washed with nuln with only generic weathering done in Vallejo bright silver. I didn't want to go all out on it when they had so much else to look at! plus I can easily replicate it across all the vehicles that cross my desk for him :-)

That's Clan MacPhail, the Modern Hunting tartan. My family name is Paul, so I adopted MacPhail as a screen name as more of a transliteration, and because I think it's a great looking tartan, subdued but with a little more complexity than the Blackwatch. I later explored the actual genealogy and discovered that the richer Scottish heritage is on my grandmother's Mackie/McKay side, where my 28th-great-grandfather was Duncan I, the 11th century king of Scotland made famous by Shakespeare's MacBeth. Alba gu bràth!

Gotta love Scottish history! my great cousin is the current earl of Dunmore and owns Blair Atholl castle. My family is tied to Clan Murray (Firth Fortune & FIll the Fetters) if anything happens to him and heirs then i'm actually somewhat zig zag in line for the title it's a rather stubborn and hardy mix with me being Australian/Scottish

Fellas I need some help. I want to make a Killteam and a Necromunda gang but I'm not confident on what to do? I want to make an Ork Killteam and a Catachan one but use a mix of different models from GW, Artel etc? I had even thought of subbing the ArtelW scorpions in as a necro gang

What would be firstly a list of models i'd need to build? for example 5 Ork with stubbers 2 flamers, 1 with knife and pistol. i'm not a real gamer as I've stated many times so this is really for fun and to try and convince my 2 friends to do likewise

any ideas and thought welcome. pics if you got em.

Kill team is really forgiving. Especially if you play with someone who isn’t doing a super meta list. For orks I just use kommandos for the extra movement. Try to sneak around terrain and charge from hidden spots so you don’t get over watched to death. Something like a powerklaw commando nob and sneaky boys would be fine. You could also just run a bunch of Scorpions for a kill team with similar strats.

I know goonhammer has articles on both with sample rosters at the end, but that's more from a competitive perpsective--can't say I've gotten a game in to say either way if they're correct. My guard is definitely built from the "Just shove in all the special weapons" side.

My vote is Artel scorpions as a Kill Team It won't be particularly great, but it'll look sweet af (and KT isn't quite as meta-driven as 40k so you can have fun using non-meta stuff)

I'm still here! just busy with work and models. i'm currently painting a couple of warbands and some ultramarines and a Carnifex old one eye! but I may be a while posting because my lovely 1 year old Samoyed Theodore decided to eat my laptop charger :-( so i've got 51% battery remaining so it's a race to the see what finishes first.
