I get my second lot of bikes from a fellow gamer. Now I have an extra 4 bikes and 2 attack bike NOS + Sammael (metal NOS) which I need to sell off since I won't need them. Oh well, maybe later I need to go to the swap shop and trade for some stuff (like an Ironclad Dreadnought).

Anyway, I whipped out my camera and took a picture of almost all the bikes stuff that I have so far and my current bike list. I am going for

Kor'Sarro Khan w/ Moondrakken
Command Squad on bikes w/ 4x Plasma gun + Company Standard
Librarian on bike - Force Dome + Null Zone

6 squads of bikes all have:
2x special weapons (e.g. plasma, melta) w/ 4 bikers
1 bike sergent with power fist
1 attack bike w/ multimelta (or heavy bolter)

That is a total of 6 attack bikes, 37 bikes.

Plus, I want the following extras so I can swap things in and out of my list
- CC command squad (w/ 3x LCs and 1x TH)
- Techmarine on bike (need to find some servo harness)

Anyway, here is what I have. Time to get back to more painting.

Everything I need really. Command squad on the left, 6 bike squads, Sammael and Typhoon on the right.

Command squad with captain. Chaplain for fun and profit :-)

[Thumb - IMG_3239.JPG]
All squads are specced out. Even have the resin bases for some.

[Thumb - IMG_3240.JPG]
Sergents all come with power fist. I got parts to build a techmarine on bike too.

Sammael and Typhoon so I can play them as Dark Angel when I wish

Exactly how its done, just a few paint strokes a day gets the models done.
I dig that black bike. Did you get Max's Ravenwing?
I'd like to see a better picture of the marine biker that is looking back over his shoulder.

Beautiful Army. Makes me want to start a bike army (cause I don't have enough models to paint already >< )

@Hmelrose: I didn't get Max's Ravenwing but instead opted for the other lot (20 bikes + 4 attack bike + 3 typhoon land speeder + Sammael).

@sparkywtf: I understand how it feels. I also have lots of things lying around not painted or assembled.

After this chaplain, I will be assembly lining a couple more bikes before getting back to my Drop Pod and Land Raider. This includes the marine biker that is looking back over his shoulder. I will need to replace his plasma pistol with a plasma-gun though. Plasma pistol is too overrated.

So my chaplain is complete. The wash makes the black part of the bike no longer smooth but it adds interesting pattern to it. Overall I like this guy quite a bit.

It is a pretty old model so that might be why he has a smoke launcher. :-)

This is the last bike that I will be working on. Kindda tired with painting so many in a row. I am gonna switch over to painting my Land Raider Redeemer which I got back in Thanksgiving. Hmm, that is more than a month ago. Should really get it painted.

Yeah, he has all his fist iconography scraped off already so he is my chapter Pedro Kantor now :-) He still need a lot done though. I guess I will revisit him once I am done with my land raider redeemer and land speeder storm.

My librarian is complete. I think I will keep him in the back to provide psychic protection + continuously casting Force Dome.

Power of the machine spirit. Of course. .

Failing that, he has a psychic power called "Chuck Norris bike riding" where if he pass a Ld+2 test, his can ride the bike without touching it.

I have been working on the internal of my Land Raider Redeemer I got as part of the megaforce box with a friend. Too bad he didn't give me the instruction manual so when I assembled I forgot to put in the inner doors (between the two pieces) + the front ramp opening mechanism.

So my land raider now has no inner doors. The front doors don't open at the same time either. Oh well, lession learned I guess. I will be posting the assembled Land Raider soon.

Another thing that I want to note: since I basically painting a deathwing scheme for everything, I have gotten enough experience on how to quickly and reliably get the deathwing color.

Here is the info:

- Basecoat everything with a can of Army Painter Skeleton Bone. Goes lightly in two coats. You don't need to cover everything since the shade of creme is a bit different anyway.
- Apply Devlan Mud wash selectively to create edges.
- One coat of Dheneb Stone to most of the models leaving the edges you created.
- Final coat of Bleached Bone.
- Paint all details the colors you want
- Highlight as you wish

This is the fastest method to do Deathwing and Angel of Absolution that delivers consistent models with clean and good coverage. The biggest time saver is to basecoat with Army Painter. I can tell you from personal experience that working up to Bleached Bone from White Primer is a pain.

Not as much as working it up to Bleached Bone from a Black Primer lol (I have that problem on my Shoulder pads )

I needed to work with black shoulder pads and black backpack some time back. It takes one extra coat of Dheneb Stone at the start to put it into a manageable state.


Automatically Appended Next Post:
I just want to quickly give a prop to Games Workshop. I emailed them during the weekend and today I received a pdf copy of the instruction booklet in my email.

That is the kind of customer service that every company should have.

I need to stop working on multiple stuff at the same time. Or maybe I need to organize cut-out bits better because I lost a couple of bits of my Land Raider Redeemer already. Oh well. I am gonna have it assembled and ready for the exterior painting soon enough. I don't even know why I should bother to paint the inside since most people won't see it anyway.

Looking good Leohart! Now you have inner doors to be used for bitz or basing/terrain!
