Land Raider Pilot on Cruise Control






Currently have been working on a Skitarii Army which turned into a War Convocation. Nothing is completely finished, just a WIP. Originally rushed to get them done for a tournament and had just put 3-5 colors, inked them, and based them. Have been going back re-highlighting them. Haven't played or modeled much in the past 3-4 years and recently just gotten into it again. I need to really stop selling my Armies.

Not sure what the end of this Army will become, plan on more Vanguard, Dune Crawlers, Walkers, Robots, and 2 more Knights at least. I'm kind of at a loss for Admech as far as conversion possibilities, I'm sure there are many I just don't like the way the parts go together, makes it hard for conversions. I love to convert, as you can see below had to convert some more arc rifles! I always somehow drift from Warhammer 40k but hopefully this time is different, my wife has gotten into Harlequins.

The back story is they are investigating a STC at a nearby Necron Tomb World. Original concept was investigating a nearby Chaos inhabited planet by the Eye of Terror that was being controlled by a Sorcerer mutating the area turning it green as an illusion to draw people there.



Overview of the Army on my painting table.



Another shot of the Army. Just won an auction for a new Icarus Autocannon for the Knight above, I kind of butchered it when I took it off for a tournament, so I am magnetizing the turret this time. I'm a firm believer in WYSIWYG.



Originally was my Warlord with the Servo Arm he is still kind of a work in progress.



Not happy with how the Destroyers turned out going to start reworking them.

I will be working on some more Destroyers, the 6th Breacher and a Culexus next. Plus I will be magnetizing and working on another Knight that I just picked up!

Finished my Knight! He was my prototype. Thus his name is Protos!

Great looking army . We'll probably be needing some CUs to appreciate the difference when you start adding highlights and extra details.

They're an excellent table top standard considering the time it took you to paint.

Thank you, yes I will definitely have to take close ups tonight! I was working on my Culexus assassin last night after I finished my Knight up with his magnetizing.

Here is a top picture of him. I am not that great at painting Red. When I did Blood Angels I had to do Flesh Tearers because my Red was so bad. Hence why I didn't do a Mars Pattern army! My friend taught me how to paint white. I really like how it turned out and am quite proud. First attempt at using big decals, I ruined the first decal set and luckily my LGS hooked me up with another set for free! That is why I do at least 80-90% of my buying at my LGS.



My Illness grew with my Admech doubled my Destroyers and finished the last Breacher. My regret was not magnetizing my Destroyers and Breachers. Dominus is very much still a work in progress, he is on the side block for now though.



Going to finish my Culexus tonight. Yes close ups and a better back drop. My Photoshop skills are non existent.

Spent Sunday afternoon after I played a 750 Point game magnetizing my old Knights arm joints with the new Knights weapon arms rather than building him. Got the inspiration from someone on the forum doing a commission Knight with all the weapons magnetized. Magnetized at the joint, only thing I could not magnetize was the Thermal Cannon but I do not forsee me ever using it. Only regret was trading my original Knights additional weapon sprue away. Thank goodness for Ebay I guess! Not done but getting there, not happy with how the Stormspear Missile Pod turned out and going to have to touch it up tonight and highlight.

Next project is slowly building my other Knight and spending time actually painting him in stages. Have a game coming up on Sunday against Guard.

Cool. I know the pain/regret of not magnetising weapon options. I now magnetise everything, but the biggest problem with that is it increases time to finish models by a factor of 10...I'd still say it's worth it though.

Judging from your basing going to be a woodland /forest display board?

Yes, Necron Tomb world will be done, they need to find the STC rumored on the world!

Got the idea from Fritz on youtube. Cork Board glue a piece of Art Card board over it.



Added flock after it dried over night.



Still WIP definitely, shook off the board this morning, I'm still in the process of reflocking, a lot of it came off so touching it up. After its done adding trees and Necron scarabs to it. I was going to buy a Monolith and cut the top off it to have it sticking up off the ground but atm just will not happen.

Made a very generic display board out of a cork board frame just like that and a cheap wooden lazy-susan I picked up from Wal-Mart. Works great and the lazy susan can be re-positioned on the base and spun to show off the models on display.

That is a great idea Gitsplitta, I may have to do that.

Finished up my Display Board last night and this morning! Turned out great, have it segmented for each Detachment in the War Convocation. Not sure I have room for the Scarabs like I was originally going to do, we will see tonight. Took forever to cover up lose patches though. Decided to go picture happy with my Army I'm taking this weekend to a Tournament.

Whole Army!



Vanguard with my converted Phosphoenix



Infiltrators



Runestalkers



Dominus and his band of Kataphron Destroyers. Not happy with how his Hood turned out, I used 3 layers/shading of red.



Rangers



Dune Crawler and Ironstrider



My Baron Knight!

Your army looks fantastic on the board. Should earn you high marks for painting and display.

Thanks, I appreciate it Gitsplitta! I hope it does, and wish I was a better photographer just took some snap shots on the way into work. Took 2 1/2 days to complete the board and my what a pain. Joked with my Wife not sure I will be doing that again. Lessons learned though, stain it next time and do that first. Then base coat the board before applying flock covering up white is such a pain .

I really like the use of actual pieces of wood... I may have to try that myself some day.

   
Made in us

Its some kind of cured wood, I bought my original pack for my Flames of War guys 8-9 years ago at a train shop and it never warped, changed colors or anything. I found the same thing recently at Hobby Lobby, it is called Dead Fall and brand is Woodland scenics.

I always have loved the way dead logs look on bases.

Sweet looking army!! Good luck with the tournament

Tournament was a absolute blast. I'd never played Necrons... Boy I made some silly deployments and moves against him. Went 1/1/1. Was a blast though. Played Blood Angels my first game won, played Necrons my second lost, tied my last game against Khorne Daemonkin.

Think I'm going to start working on a Monster Robot Mash now. Have to buy 6 Robots, 3 more destroyers and another Dominus. Gotta figure out a good Army list for it.

I was reminded today why I played 40k. Have not had this much fun since 3rd Edition!

Congratulations on the tournament and the excellent army, it is always great to see more Ad Mech goodness. This is one of the larger painted armies I have seen on Dakka.

It will be great to see some Kastellans added to the army. Points wise they are expensive but in game they can be vicious. Personally I love the miniatures too, I have 4 of them myself.

Have not gotten around to anything I've wanted to really. Have been changing my one Ironstrider in the list to have a TL Lascannon and I have been working on matching my whites on the Knights. Drove me nuts at the tournament. Took me the past 2 days to match the whites then added more battle damage. Have to come up with a new Knight Crest... (Long story short..... Accidentally got white on a decal and could not wash it off until the decal cracked.... Go figure OCD me) Going to be going to Hobby Lobby and buying some Cogs and using the Admech symbols in the Knight boxes inside the Cog on the shields. Tired of working on the Knights but eh... Its fun! Stompy! Protos now is The Ripper and my Baron finally has a name... Baron Boomer!

Together, not the best shot but you can see the whites!



Protos the Ripper! Much happier with how he turned out!



Baron Boomer! Very pleased with his paint job.



I am not the best painter but quite happy with how these turned out.

Won an ebay auction for another Stormspear Rocket Pod and Meltagun, not sure if they will go on The Ripper or not!

Thanks for the comments and it is good to be back. Little one has been keeping my wife and I quite busy, so much for getting some Kastellans atm!

Also.... My wife did paint her first Harlequin!

Have re-fallen in love with going straight Skitarii to focus on. Bought a Dragoon, ordered another and won an auction for another Aquebus.

Wife did me a favor and combined my rule books and codex's into a binder for me then tabbed it out! Never did post it before but she did it for that last tournament I was playing. Her awesome cover she did for my binder!



Work bench last night.



Couldn't sleep last night so I assembled the Dragoon I bought. I still have to clean it up though.



Group shot of whats complete of my Skitarii minus the one Aquebus and 2 Dragoons. Going to have to figure a new way to display and needing to make a light box.



Wife continuing to work on her Harlequins! Obviously still WIP!




She is much more daring then me, I've always stayed away from checkering.

Working on a Imquisitor Coteaz model. Not bad for kitbashing what was in the bits bin. Any suggestions? I need to get a smaller base for him though.

After getting very excited about new Raven Guard formations have always been a huge fan of Ravens because of Edgar Allen Poe, love his poetry. Still awaiting my Forgeworld order but may I present Chaplain Edgar (I know original right... Wife named him)
