See the new Forge World unit, SoI? They'd look pretty good in this scheme, I reckon.

@Young Logan - I'm working on the last 10 immortals I need for this list. I should get them done this week.

@ Dysartes - I did see them. And they will very likely be bought. That new flyer looked pretty damn cool as well.

I love everything about the night scythe, except the starkness between the black rock on the base and the brown surrounding. I think maybe a few smaller rocks dispersed about, or as the other poster suggested, fissures coming out from under it, might make it mesh a bit more.

Will you be tempted by any allies for 6th ed? Desperate Allies seem almost untenable with the drawbacks, and Necrons have no Battle Brothers, so it would likely just be the Allies of Convenience that could be of use (CSM, Grey Knights, Orks, Tau). Could make an interesting modelling project for the future... enslaved Tau? They'd look fantastic with your black armor and stark blue lining, too.

Personally, allies opens up a way for me to add even more dreadnoughts to my army so if Nova allows them, I'll likely have a few Ironclads in my list!

Surprised that Necrons aren't Battle Brothers with Blood Angels.

@ iev1atan - The bronze uses a base of VMC Orange Brown (70981), highlighted with 50/50 Orange Brown & Golden Yellow.

Greetings all. I've been in a bit of a rut for these last few days. I'll be back in the saddle and cruising shortly.

Sorry people for my lack of content. Over the last few weeks, I’ve been in a bit of a rut and it’s been difficult to drum up motivation to paint anything. Well it’s seems like I’ve gotten over that hump and I’ve been cruising nicely. NOVA is only a few short weeks away and I need to get cracking if this project is to get done!

I’ve focused on getting all the small stuff done, and so far this week has been very productive! Here’s what I got done:



I finished the remaining Canoptek Spiders that have been rotting away on my desk for weeks now. The template model is in the middle.



I also knocked out 4 more scarab bases. That completes the necessary scarabs for my display, but I’ll likely hammer out a few more for completeness. Here’s the whole lot as I can’t distinguish the old ones from the new. Which is good I guess!



Since I’ve pinned down what I intend to bring to NOVA (More on that later…), I built and painted 2 additional Heavy Destroyers for this army. I even utilized a leftover Tesla Destructor to build a left-armed cannon. Not a fan of the Deathmark heads now that they are done, but oh well.





My NOVA list includes 2 small units of warriors so I built and painted a template model. I hate the glow rods that these guys come with so I gleaned some new ones from cannibalizing the new rod design out of the plethora of gauss blasters I have sitting around. I have to say, this guy looks good! 9 more to prime and paint!







Years ago, my wife got me a GW dice box for Christmas. I love that thing and I’ve wanted to use it for years, but it was cast in porcelain like resin. It would break my heart if that thing were to drop and shatter, so it’s sat on my mantle for over a decade. Finally I let my compulsive nature take control and made/painted a dice box for this army.

I molded that beauty up; man did it take a lot of rubber, and cast it in my own black resin. I then painted it in my army colors, magnetized, and varnished the ever-living-crap out of it. And before you ask, yes the dice match my army colors. I did mention I’m compulsive at times…

I’ll be tackling another Annihilation Barge this week while I work on cutting the base slots out of my display board. Cruising along nicely!

Thanks MajorTom. I cut my rods out of the gauss blaster from the Immortal kit. After a little trimming they fit in perfectly.

I should take some pictures of how I did it and post them here.

Can you link the shapeways rods? To be honest, I've never even heard of this site. I had no idea that 3d printing had come so far!

Love the dice box. You said you casted it. Does that mean you can make one more? :-)

Oh, I am loving the dice box you have re-cast! How long did that take, I wonder? I doubt I could still get one from anywhere.

@ Dr. Temujin - It didn't take long to cast, but did eat up a lot of rubber. I use the sample containers from smooth-on for my molds, and it took 2.5 containers for the base and 1 for the top. Takes about 24 hrs to cure. The resin takes an hour for safe demolding.

@DanSly - Thanks! Glad you like.

@Mike - I'm looking forward greatly to NOVA. Need to get some more games in. I've been kind of starved lately. I should be complete by then.

So, the NOVA Open is a scant 8 days away and I’m still painting.



I finished the needed warriors for my list. With them ALL the infantry in intend to paint for this army are complete, at least for a while. Huge milestone passed.



I mentioned before that I’ve not been overly compelled to paint the wraiths. While I like the models, they are to damn fragile (the whip coils were designed foolishly). These are my redesigns for this Thokt project. I was worried that the models would not fit the scheme, but that is no longer the case.

Last Saturday I was looking at this project found a problem. As a whole the army looks good, but it was lacking something. It’s been bothering me for weeks now and finally I figured it out. The army has no centerpiece. Couldn’t have that now could I?

I have 2 whip coil designs that I should have finished shortly. They’ll be posted soon. Before NOVA I promise!

The Wraith on the left looks a little misplaced (still looks Tomb Kings-ish to me), but otherwise they look good!
Best of luck finishing in time for NOVA!
