Thanks zahnib! Yeah, I believe that the third incarnation of Repentia models (ca. 2040) will get everything right And I will discuss the stat increase with my friends, although I fear they don't want those gals even faster in their face

Finished both Repentia and started on the Assault Intercessors. Luckily they will be very easy to paint, gonna try and give them a big push today. And because the heat has gone I primed some more and quite diverse models. Zoat will get a matching imperial paintjob to go Xenos hunting with the PA Inquisitor, the Hobbits will do duty as halfling scouts in my Averlander mercenaries in Mordheim and Luke Skywalker... is just for fun, although I'm watching the Legion Clone Wars Core Set, even if I won't play. But am watching the movies and show atm so got in the mood.

My gaming group consists of four players (me included) and after some time we finally managed to all have time the same evening and did a very nice 4-player Mordheim game. We played the scenario before with 3 players. The goal is to get a merchant's son off the board. He starts in the middle and moves 1D6 with scatter dice before we players move. And I nearly got him off the field, I only would have needed two more rounds, but alas, I failed my rout test and lost the game. So I was eager to do it better this time.
After deploying in the four corners the merchant's son decided he wanted to walk away from his spot in the middle of the battlefield... a whooping 1" We all raced towards the guy (racing in the broadest sense for the dwarve treasure hunters ). Carnival of Chaos and Undead were in prime positions to snatch him next round but apparently he didn't like the look of those rescuers so with a new roll of the scatter dice he walked 5" into my direction and into a small boat on the river. This was perfect because my Skink Starpriest Skinky (subbing for a Sword for Hire Warlock) got Flight of Zimmeran off and now stood on the boat with the merchant's son. The only problem: He now had to get him off the board and was only allowed the 4 inch movement. So it was clear I would need at least 8-9 rounds to reach a table edge. And the dwarf player had a lot of crossbows and an open field to target me. He moved forward with his slayers and started shooting whilst I put the rest of my warband in front of Skinky and the merchant's son, codename human shield
On the other river side Carnival and Undead had a little skirmish and than the Carnival walked away to kill some wayward zombies for easy experience. The only stuff he left standing were three nurglings who charged into the two slayers... and tarpitted them the rest of the game. Our dwarf player was furious, because he just couldn't kill them.
Meanwhile I tried to get to the table edge and fend off the Undead who now had no opponent holding them up. Luckily for me the vampire (the grey skeleton) of the warband catched stupidity early on in the campaign and just drooled some rounds instead of being able to attack me. Nevertheless once he arrived he wreaked havoc. But his injury rolls (and those of the crossbows of the dwarves) weren't good enough so my people managed to still block the route for Skinky. Unfortunately I had to start taking rout tests shortly after that but my warband stood firm, even after losing members left and right. Two rounds before I would have gotten of the board the human shield consisted only of my last Bergjäger hero, one Sword fighter and Skinky. But the vampire started to drool again and my Bergjäger aimed and she killed him with a critical hit. After that the dwarf player failed his two shooting attempts at Skinky, the Carnival player was too far away and last round the Undead failed their rout test, fled the battlefield and I walked the merchant's son off the field.
It was a nailbiter to the end and I was so happy having fled the board. But not without great losses, 5 henchmen and 4 heroes were out of action. But only 2 henchmen permanently did in the aftergame so it was a win all around.

Thanks for sharing the batrep! Sounds like a really fun game - and a tense one, as well. Everyone's warbands look nice, I like the stone bases on the Carnival of Chaos. That starpriest is a good model, I like the way you did his feathers.

I would love it, if there would be some new models. There are some nice alternatives out there, but I wouldn't mind plastic remakes of the old boxes. I wasn't in the hobby first time the game came around and would love the witch hunter sculpts remade. Although even a Made to Order would make me very happy.

In other news I did not do the big push on the Assault Intercessors, but took stock of what I actually have lying around and sorting my cabinet a bit. Luckily my pile isn't as bad as I thought.

We start with the remnants of my unbuilt and unpainted marines. Not much left, but the vehicles will hurt, I so hate painting vehicles. Although the Dreads should be a little easier. And I have to finish of the Deathwatch bird, it is more far along as I remembered. Necromunda Enforcers are on ice for the time being, although I could see them used as scouts, may have to ponder about that.



Sisters "pile" on the right. Currently looking for hatches for the Conquest rhino. Thought I had some in my Bitz box, but seems I was wrong. Immolator will be a to paint, but Retributors and Seraphim should be reasonably fast, once I start building them.
On the left are my SCE who will one day get painted and then not added on (probably, but I'll have them ready for WarCry and maybe Meeting Engagement games.



The most mixed pile. I really want to have my KO done and the finishing line is very close, as you can see, but I always get distracted with power amour Also some stuff for WarCry left (some was next to the sisters pile in the last image)
In the middle we have some Sector Mechanicus terrain, the terrain from Kill Team Rouge Trader and then some Undead for WarCry and Mordheim (the ogre too). They should paint up quick, once the time comes. Gonna try out my scheme for the WarCry Nighthaunts next month in the painting comp.
On the left we have the Mechanicus stuff with one Imperial Knight and then some Skitarii. They are up once I'm through with Space Marines and Sisters (although if the latter get an army bundle box this christmas, they will get priority).
The GSC will stay around and someday get painted for Kill Team or Necromunda.



And my current painting table, we'll see if I get through this stuff in September, it's the goal at least.



And I took the opportunity to rearrange my cabinet a bit (Mordheim models got banished to the container that already holds the BSF baddies, I need more cabinet space).
First up are the Space Marines, my most sizable force. Upper level are HQs, Elites und lower level the troops (and no more place for more of them ) Quite happy to see them all together, at the new 500 points or even 1.000 points level I can build a lot of varying lists.



The next shelf needs more order in the near future, it's mostly imperial factions and some xenos from BSF and my GSC test models. Lower shelf shows my progress with the sisters army.



And last but not least the two fantasy shelves. On top my WarCry stuff and the first models for my SCE. Below not everything is painted by me. All purple KO infantry and ships just got some additional work like a new base or some edge highlighting, but were bought as an army on eBay. Everything blue and metallic green is mine however



And with that I now should start the work day and try to paint a bit this evening whilst the wife is out and the kids sleep.

That Detolf cabinet is looking very full Viterbii.

I always find a good hobby clear out is good to help focus the mind to give a rough timeline on when you want things done, and even to discover things that you could possibly sell.

Good luck with the progress, your September goal seems doable.

By my calculation if (and that's a big if) I don't buy anything new it should last me until next (late) spring But the goal still stands, no more pile in 2021!

Yes, I added to Detolf's capacity, I still can put one more shelf in, but I was also surprised how full it already is. I have kind of a plan, October will definitely be ghost month. I think a power armour break should be good for me

I will have to rearrange the imperial misc. one, although it represents the Imperium very well, with the chaotic organisation Finishing Aos/Fantasy stuff is at the forefront of my goals.

After tidying everything away I started to get back to painting and building. Did both murder buckets and will use them as Death Cult assassins in my Sisters army. Because everything is fine if there's purity seals and Imperial doodads on Xenos tech, right?





Assault Intercessors are progressing slowly, next up is doing the rest of the gold details. Then there's only holsters, pouches and base left.



And very happy with the Zoat progress. Color scheme should surprise no one Have to find out, how the effect on his front plate was done on the studio model, quite like that red/black scheme. But first all the cables and canisters.

As someone who is painting the new Necrons, your idea to make them into assassins is blasphemous! Looking forward to seeing the conversions you have planned cause you know if there is not enough purity seals they could turn on you.

Thanks Yorkright! And those Xenos will never turn on their new father, the almighty God-Emperor. They shall only do His bidding and slaughter the pesky enemies of the Imperium. Who even dares to think those lovely little bots would go back to a mute monarch (that was his name, wasn't it ) are mistaken

Hope they will not falter if I play against a friend, who is currently in the progress of painting up some Necrons. Their reprogramming must hold!

Used home office lunch break to get along with the Zoat. Coming together now, pistol and flask on his side are the only stuff left (and some cleanup and weathering on his armour).
And because the glove's look was to good to resist, I didn't. Shame he has no thumb, so the Time Stone is on his elbow
