EDIT... To any new readers, don't be discouraged by my terrible models at the start, I have got so much better.... Skip to page 5 for my current stuff


Back to the regular sceduled programming.


Hi dakka,

Ive been avidly following many of the inspiring P&M threads here on dakka, drawing well..... inspiration. I have always enjoyed reading a thread that started with someones purchase of a battleforce, a codex and some green stuff and watching their army grow as well as their abilities. So much so that I have decided to create my own. I have decided to do this for a number of reasons, including getting the feedback, critisism and advice from fellow dakkalites, improving my painting skills, and simply the motivation. I was given for cristmas (by my grandma) the death company kit. I then procceded to purchase the codex and battle force from amazon. I love the internet. Anyway upon some research i found this guy www.mousemuffins.com and needed to buy his chequered pauldrons, Turns out i ran out of money, so they will have to wait. Anyway enough rambling. As the title suggests this will be a lamenters army. I just love the whole background of this chapter. Although models will have to wait till they arrive, I do have two things to ask of you, the amazing members of dakka (flattery gets you everywhere )

Number one: Advice on magnetising jump packs, I have done some research on the internet but most of it was vauge or unhelpfull

Number two: I would like advice on this list, there are only a few things that MUST stay (ie: I already own/payed for them) and they are, the ten death company, the tac squad, and the rhino. I would like a storm raven but its not that much of a big deal if it goes.

Why, hello there!

its an honour to have you here gits....

I have decided to update this log at least once a day. And so, here is todays:

Its not much, just a captain i cobbled together using some legs, a torso and a jumppack i had laying around, the rest is the dc. Theres no right shoulder pad because im going to order some online, when I have the money.... Anyway he isnt glued yet so C&C would be appreciated. Ecpecialy you LDP as you seem to be the resident expert on captains, after all you only have 10 of them


Tommorow I will try to do the 5 dc marines

EDIT: just noticed the dirty great bit of srue on the handle of his chainsword.... gonna go fix that up right now.

Ehehehehe I guess I am a bit of an expert
Well with the wargear you chose I think you chose the parts very well. Both the chainsword and the BP look very unique, and the pose is nice and dynamic. I might recommed trying to bulk up his waist perhaps with a few grenades and a gun holster though? Make him look stockier and stand out in a crowd, and when painting, paint a certain peice a different colour, like the chainsword sword bit, instead of black make it red, or vice versa or whatever.
Hope this helps dude!
Looking forward to the game

I agree with lips... looking good for all his stated reasons. Little bit of girth and you'll be all set.

Why thank you!

hmm, didnt think of that, will do that presently

when painting, paint a certain peice a different colour, like the chainsword sword bit, instead of black make it red, or vice versa or whatever.
actually i was going to do that particular peice chequered, thats why i chose a simple one.

@matt, and gits: Thank you, I hope not to dissapoint you

Cool, another Lamenter player. Welcome to the 21st founding chapter of Lamenting

Let me know if I can help in anyway.

As for magnetizing Jump packs and back packs, I did this on my current assault squads. The trick was to get the right sized magnets. I’m thinking 3/32" x 1/16" Disc Magnets is what I used. They are about the right diameter to the back pack hole (however you will need to drill them out a bit to sit flush). They are also strong enough not to be bumped off when moving. Remove the backpack bump and drill out as well.
Make sure you align you magnets the correct way as with all the other troops as well; this allow you to use any of the back packs/ Jump packs on any guys. This keeps it simple so you don’t have to find backs that go with only certain guys.

Feel free to check out my page. thou slow to update. ...http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/394207.page

Advice, comments and critique is always appreciated.

Hello everybody,

I was looking at the stuff i needed to buy for this army, not the models but the paints, flock etc and the price was rising rapidly (did i mention that im broke ;(). This coupled with an idea I had a while back of a tactical squad taking cover in a ruin, gave me the idea to do urban basing. I looked online and drew some inspiration and i made my own.

Remember this is my first try at this so please be HARSH! that way I am more likely to improve and make better bases. Im pretty pleased with it however.

Apoligies for bad photo, my camera decided it didnt like my cheap batteries.This is all I got before it died on me


enjoy, Ben

Yes i was thinking of doing that, maybe on a different base in the squad, i dont want to crowd up the base too much.

vaasen , the netherlands

i made my urban basing as follows (this is best for vehicles, heavy weapon teams, flyers or dreadnoughts):
i bought red termite sand (your local pet shop that sells lizards)

dilluted some chaos black with water and added that to the
sand (not all the sand) making it black (and your hands get dirty)

i cut of small strips of sprue for a side walk. glue that to half the base in a irregular pettern.

now i painted the sprue brown. i made some of the red sand wet and stuffed that in the holes between the sprue.

the black sand i added in a very thin layer on the rest of the base.

now you have a side walk with partial road

the banner is click able. it takes you to a magical country. if you don't believe me click and see for your self

You can make bases and terrain from a lot of common items. Thin card stock such as mini boxes or cereal boxes are just an example, Styrofoam from packaging or cork from wine bottles or cork panels can be useful. Metal and plastic bottles have intresting curves and shapes. When cut into small peices can be used to look like twisted metal scraps on the ground. Small piece of road gravel can be used ect. Your only bound by your imagination .

As always use caution when cutting, sawing and generally tearing apart stuff like plastic and metal scraps. Sharp edges abound.
and .. be sure to coat foam related items if your spray painting out of a can as opposed to an Air bush. The propellant will dissolve your foam right in front of your eyes. Also avoid heating Styrofoam and some types of plastics as it will melt, releasing a toxic gas. Important safety tips ... thanks Egon!!

easy man.
Basing is quite easy cork matting and sand really.
A little plastic tuning to straws.
cat litter.
the actually sprue can be made into metal struts
If you can get to a plumbing place that sells pipe and stuff its a massive geek fest.
if your from uk theres the pound shop where you can buy cheap chains to wrap stuff in.
last but not least.
Slate
Bark
stones
pebbles
all free from mother nature only just remember to dry the bark out before use.
peace hope I helped a little and keep up the good work.

Like where you're going with the bases. If you have acces to them filters from water taps make nice grating and are pretty cheap.

Re-wrote the list. removed the pread, and the extra armour on the furiso and replaced them with a furiso librarian. The reasoning behind this is if I can pick up another aobr dread then I can make three dreads out of the one kit, all i would need then would be theese..http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/Warhammer-40000/MK-IV-DREADNOUGHT-CLOSE-COMBAT-ARM-LEFT-ARM.html.

So if anyone has a spare aobr dread kicking around. I would gladly purchase it off you.
