Tough Tyrant Guard

Cam - Yeah it was cool seeing the Guard army working that way because it really was the way I imagine them fighting.... overwhelming numbers with some big gun support.

Update time:

Firstly I have finished the first neophyte hybrid squad, this photo doesn't have the basing quite complete, but you get the idea on the models, because that's what you actually look at right? I'm happy with how the skin tones have come out, tried a few different combos to get some differences in squad.



I've also played a bunch of games since last update, the most recent being the first mission of Fate of Konor which is attack/defend, attacker has to have units in opponent half by game end for points and defender gets a point per unit killed, and we played 2000pts, I had a 50/50 mixed army with GSC/Nids, and was the first time the Cult had been on the table in a game.

My opponent deployed really heavy with fire warriors and broadside suits in left hand corner with a ghost keel and fire warrior breacher team holding the right hand side... my counter deployment was pretty stacked on the right hand side/middle. bascially I just stayed away from the massive gunline firebase he had created and smashed through his units on the right side and basically cleaned up in the end game.

13-3 was the final score.

My opponent knows he stuffed up his deployment, next game I reckon he will spread them out a lot more which means I will struggle to get the ambushing units on as easy along with having to run into more fire. He also had some hideous dice rolls early on which probably didn't help him.





The Cult of the Red Saviour was successful in it's first outing with the Leman Russ and Patriarch units really causing some mischief while my tervigon kept the gant squads up (38 replacements come back!) while the hive tyrant absorbed a lot of fire power with 5++ and 5+ FnP while tearing through some wounds on the ghost keel and riptide.



I gave my win to Chaos, cos I figure the need the help, I was the attacker, and I have some Death Guard now days

Coming this week: Another Fate of Konor game, and I'm thinking I'll paint my Magus up now I have the skin tones sorted.

Thanks for reading!

Evening all,

Quick update.

First up, have started work on the Primus for the Cult of the Red Saviour and have laid down base colours:



The lighting is a bit dark, but you get the general idea... also his head and toxin injector hand are being painted off model currently

Second update is I've done experimentation for the Zerg creep bases for the Deathguard project I'm working on in the background:



Basically PVA glue with super glue dropped on top and then I used a toothpick to push the superglue around a little bit, then left it to dry and painted up using purple colours and washes. These were the experiments, and they have come out pretty well. Couple of learnings around how much the PVA shrinks back when the superglue hits it so I'll look at really pushing the PVA to the edges in future. Also will probably use a gloss varnish on top once they are done to give it that slimy look.

Got a game on Wednesday and Sunday this week and should be able to knock out the Primus paintjob this week, so next update should be a good one

Thanks for reading.

Hi all,

Been a fairly productive week for me hobbywise.

Firstly, have almost finished the Primus for the Genestealer cult. Need to do the breather pipe on his face, and some detailing on the face like the eyes etc, then base and done.



Secondly I had my second game ever using some of the Genestealer cult allied with some tyranids. Played against Admech who I haven't played against before so made a couple of errors in target prioritisation




Did I mention the Admech also had a knight It did a heap of work and demolished a few squads... the Magus Mind Controlled it at one point though and it blew up some of the Admech army muhahahahaha, but then it kept killing. The Patriarch held his own against it and did twice as many wounds to the knight, but alas the knight had more wounds so won the fight overall.



The main win condition turned out to be an objective in the back corner of my opponents deployment. Whoever held that at turn five won the game (there were others that neither of us achieved), considering the beating I took from his alpha strike and a couple of errors on my part in what I should shoot next, I still got pretty close to a win... what you see here is the light grey eggs are the objective, and I needed to hack through the models in front to get to it.... alas, not enough wounds done so lost by inches.



Learned a bunch from this game which is always good, like when you mind control an imperial knight, use it to kill the Onager so it can't block your infantry trying to get to objective

Got a couple more games lined up this week and always more painting and modelling to do.

Take care.

Fantastic update, the Primus is looking amazing bud, really great work.

Batrep is wonderful, so close and yet so far! Looks like a great game, with a few memorable moments. Both armies look great and your opponent seems to have been a bit lucky, but used his army well. Always great when it is a challenge.

The primus looks great! Mind controlling the knight is the best, even with a loss i would be happy to have had the fun of that.

realism is a lie
thought for the day: snakes?
