Wrapped up another 12 sisters to pre-gold stage. Still need to do 24 before getting to arco flagelants and cherub's. Was planning to do another 12 tomorrow as I took day off from work but as GW didn't put canoness and imagifier up for preorder next week I can't get my army even bought let alone painted for tournament so time limit went away...so I'll go back to AOS(need to get 25 wounds painted by friday for escalation league escalation points) and LOTR dwarves(tournament coming up next month) which have deadlines and I have all the models I need to paint anyway.

And then once we're done there, we can go find the person who designed the Helbrute kit and beat them until candy comes out.

And then we move onto the sadistic feth who designed the Havoc kit...


I gave up after 4 Chainreaper guys. The rest of my Havocs tomorrow can be my existing Chaos heavy weapon Marines. Didn't get to build my Tyrannnocytes either, so I just built all the Spore Mines and will use Biovores tomorrow and LOTS of Sporemines.


Frankly, the reaper, especially the ammo, is absolutely idiotic....

But even funier, the HB has no issues with it's ammo, the AC works perfectly fine, the ML is top notch, the Lascannons aswell. But the reaper ammo belt +backpack combo is just mindbogling.

May I humbly request the designer of the Spirt Host kit is added to this list


request granted.



on another sidenote, finished 14 traitor guardsmen, quite happy about them, now working on the next bits for BSF, more motivated now that i know i will get propper rules support accordingly to gw.

Finished these for aos escalation league to get painting points. Had started to paint first models before read league rule so didn't have before photos 53 wounds painted with 25 needed for full points and no good...

Also started bases for 20 arco flagelants, 2 mortifiers and put sand to 20 more crypt ghouls and endless spell to wait next month to paint.

Next to lotr dwarves

Honestly, the traitor guardsmen are a blast to paint imo.

Not quite as charachteristic as the old vraks renegades, but they come damn close.

Yeah they really are a pleasure to work on. I did 3 of the spindle drones in about 10 minutes as well purely with a dry brush, quite a productive day.

Maybe tad too much? Looks like been swimming in mudpool!

Particularly would reduce head and upper torso amount and increase on legs. One would presume legs are where he would get most dirty.

Today I expect I'll be working on my Whirlwind. Got a nice example of the old 2E era "Mars-pattern" one from ebay in excellent condition. The previous owner had even done little things like replaced the fragile exhaust stacks with metal rod and the moulded-on side grilles with actual mesh.

To my annoyance, I broke the "yoke" piece holding the missile racks when I was disassembling everything for my usual prep routine for preassembled and painted stuff, and have had to spend a good long while making a new mounting system that can take the weight - not inconsiderable - of the pieces and align them properly with each other. The end result won't quite be codex compliant, so I guess I've just created the Mars-Pattern v. 0.6.

I definitely overdid it on this guy

But at the same time, I felt like it fit with the aesthetic of the Marines Malevolent to be so filthy. Hes too busy killing gak to bother wiping the mud off his helmet.
