So even though that I do not have any painting progress to report, I have begun to assemble Leman Russ, seems people are far more interested in seeing him with some paint than poor Lorgar, no wonder he started the heresy when nobody else liked him. I have also undercoated the first of my dwarfs so should have some progress on them sometime soon. I am still looking for Necron to bolster that army but I have high hopes.

I have managed to have another 3rd edition 40k game this week which although I yet again was plastered but had a good time doing it. Here are a few happy snaps of what eventuated........


Here is my little horde of Tyranids. 1,500 point game. Since none of the big horribly gribblies existed back in 3rd edition the force is fairly basic. Unfortunately I didn't get to deploy first meaning I was forced back as my clever opponent deployed a Vindicator almost smack bang in the centre of the board meaning I had to deploy 18" further into my quarter.


Here is about half of the gorgeous Imperial Fist army that is soon to smash my poor Tyranids into the ground. That Vindicator and the Tacticals on the Hill (along with some pesky Scouts) were very sensibly placed. They easily outranged my Tyranids and their armour was proof against a lot of what I could throw out. And to add serious insult to injury they looked spectacular doing it.


Here we see my swarm begin to advance enmasse. Unfortunately it pretty much started to go down hill pretty quickly from here. I was paranoid about the firepower of the Imperial Fists punishing my Warriors and Zoanthropes (ably played by my Venomthropes) and had them hang back. Which turned out to be a bad mistake as it left my Termagants well ahead of the bigger bugs and unsupported. Lesson learnt.


We have started tinkering with the rules of 3rd edition. So in this game we were allowing fleet of foot/claw models to run and assault and also that when assaulting a vehicle the first round of combat must be resolved against the facing that is initially charged (which was bad for my toxin sac sporting termagants).


As can be seen here by this horde of Termagants (which with toxin sacs making them strength 4 meant they had a slim chance against the rear armour of this vindicator). They couldn't harm the tank in the first turn so in its turn it rolled back and dropped another demolisher shell squarely on top of them. It may have not been in my favor, but I don't like the fact that normally I would have charged that tank and resolved my attacks against armour 10 even though my charge move would not have been enough to even reach the rear facing. So I am keen to continue experimenting with this one.


For some reason I felt really confident on this flank, until the Scout Squad just off camera to the right charge the termagants locking them down and held them up long enough for the Tactical squad to leap out and come to their aid. Which soon was followed by an assault squad coming in to mop up the rest. I did have Tyranid Warriors with Rending claws get in and start wrecking things, but it ended up with three Veteran Sergeants with Power Fists hidden among the squads ripping them to pieces and there was nothing I could do. Veteran Sergeants properly equipped in this situation is just brutal.

What the Imperial Fists did so well was stagger their battle line which allowed them to counter anything I did really quickly. As they could sacrifice a unit (like the scouts) to slow me down or hold me in place while heavier hitters moved into position to destroy me.


Unlike me who ended up having my most dangerous units stuck way up the back doing nothing while the lesser creatures were being slaughtered with no support.

So I may have been well and truly smashed, but it was a good game. I thought I had done really well up to turn three when I quickly realized how isolated and strung out my horde had begun. I just couldn't bring the necessary forces to focus on one part of the enemies line allowing with them to deal with me piecemeal. Lesson learnt? Of course. I definitely need to play more games. I also probably need to pay a lot closer attention to what my army is capable of (especially the weapon ranges). I am also going to see if there are any Forgeworld 3rd edition beasties that my larger bugs can sub in as. Barbed Heirodule anyone?

Highlights? In the final turn of the game 4 Tyranid Warriors surrounding and gunning down a Terminator Librarian. Very satisfying. Also seeing the Nids finally get onto the battlefield, and in deployment fill the entire quarter.

Lowlights? 30 Termagants in combat with a tactical squad and Battle Leader and not killing a single marine until the third turn of combat. The dice just weren't with me. Also taking two turn of 3 Zoanthropes attempting to launch full power warp blasts at the vindicator before destroying it. (I kid you not. One turn two misses and a failed psychic test so no hits. The following turn another failed psychic test and a miss. So when I picked up the dice for the final shot i just thought it wasn't meant to be. But the dice gods allowed me a moment of relief when the warp blast hit and blew the vindicator to smithereens in one shot or in reality 6 attempted shots....(

Next time I play 3rd edition I think we may see the Alpha Legion make an appearance for the first time. Will see how effectively they can fill out a 3rd edition army.

Thanks for reading.

So last month was a bust on the getting models painted front (which I feel I have more real justification for than I have ever had before). But I have managed to kickstart the painting again this month. They won't win any painting awards and I consider they are probably below my usual standard. But, they have served a very important purpose to kick start me back painting and I am happy enough with them to have achieved that.

So halfway into the month and I have completed 30 Thunderers for my Dwarf army.


I did take the time to use three different colours for the beards and hair giving a little individuality. All of these dwarfs were second hand and some needed a little conversion and green stuff work to convince them to hold a handgun. But I think they are fairly decent conversion and without individual examination it doesn't leap out at you.


Initially I regretted the green clothes on the predominately green base. But it has grown on me somewhat. I am trying for a bit of a late thaw with the grass now appearing through the rapidly dwindling snow. Plus it ties them in with the High Elf Dragon army that I did a little while back.


These guys will be the solid shooting core of the army, positioning themselves between the blocks of warriors and if needed will try to gain a flank charge when the castle is finally assaulted.


Here is all three units together. Not fantastic. But finished and putting me well on the way to finishing the Dwarfs (as most of the points are taken up by the War Machines.....)


On a side note. This fellow on the corner of the unit with his stick and a handgun is a coversion of an older metal model. There will be a few old metal dwarfs making an appearance among the dwarf army as I have picked them up every now and then and they help round out some numbers as well as add a lot of class and character.

I have put just about every other model for this army into paint stripping mode as I decided that since they are metal I will take the opportunity to remove the paint rather than paint over them. Its been a while since I have done an army with so many metal models. They have a satisfying weight to them and it is oh so easy to remove paint from them.

I have now finished assembling Leman Russ to the painting stage and he has had a bath to try and remove some of that nasty release agent they often have on them. Hopefully I can get him started this week.

I am still chasing Necron models, after a strong start the leads have either fallen through or dried up, so I am tempted to try and knock out another Dwarf unit before switching to a Necron one.

Thanks for reading.

Hi all, quick update as I have. It done a heap of modelling or gaming since the last update of the dwarfs. Although I have been focusing on DMing a 2 player character campaign which has been a nice change of pace and a lot of fun. But a HEAP of work as I am writing the whole thing from scratch.

BUT, the purpose of this post is due to GW's recent announcement of the next 40k edition I am stepping up collecting the current codex's (codifies?) as they will be discontinued. As I would like to keep the collecting based on 7th edition if possible and modify the armies for 8th if I need to.

SO, if anyone has any of the following they would like to negotiate a sale (or a trade if I can accomodate it) I would be very interested.

Codex: Dark Eldar
Codex: Grey Knights
Codex: Tau Empire
Codex: Harlequins
Codex: Necrons
Codex: Deathwatch
Codex: Imperial Knights
Codex: Cult Mechanicus
Codex: Skitarii
Codex: Militarum Tempestus
Codex: Dark Angels
Codex: Chaos Daemons
Codex: Genestealers
Codex: Farsight Enclaves
Codex: Imperial Agents
Codex: Blood Angels
Codex: Space Wolves

I would potentially be interested in the supplements that floated around. It that would be second to the main codex acquisition.

Thanks for reading and let me know.

Thanks Cam and Illumini,

I was pretty happy with how the tyranids and Imperial fists looked on the tabletop. Pity my Nids didn't give a better showing of themselves. But I think I was too conservative and should have trusted my numbers. But my opponent has discovered some old build your own tyranids monstrous creatures in white dwarf 258 or something that should soon see my big beasties take to the field in 3rd edition.

I hope to get some of the dwarfs out of the thinners tomorrow and cleaned ready for painting. But may have a brief stop to try out my Necron scheme. Will see if I can get productive.

The codex hunt is also going quite well.

So a tiny bit more progress on the painting front to round out April, although it is not anything to do with Dwarfs or Necron. I have been doing a tiny bit of cleaning up in preparation for when we finish settlement of our new house. I found this guy among my dreamed of but never completed Marienburg Warband for Mordheim and I was inspired to paint him.


I did enjoy painting the ogres the most of any army and they are so easy to paint due to the larger size.


He perhaps shows his age as he is a bit smaller than his fellow ogres, but is still packed with detail and I see him as the runt of the army due to being smaller and shock horror missing a gut plate.


I did keep with the planned Marienburg colour scheme just in case one day I assemble the crew and finish the warband off as he then can play dual roles as I had a look at the Ogre Kingdoms list and with some tweaks I managed to squeeze him in as a Maneater with a great weapon.


So here is what I managed for April, a little off topic, but some good progress.

I spent last night gluing and pinning a metal three rotor dwarf gyrocopter. It has been ages since I pinned a model. I also did all of the conversion/repair work on the Dwarf warriors for the Dwarf army (all 38 of them) so they are ready to go. I also received the last of the Necron Warriors I needed for the army so I may paint them first. They shouldn't be that hard should they?

Thanks for reading.

Thanks guys.

Az, "officially" they are built around 8th edition. But since I have recently taken some of the armies onto the fields of several versions (right back to 3rd I think it was) and into Kings of War I think with those I am gaming with anything goes.

So stay tuned and we may see more fantasy battle reports than I have done previously. I hope. Just don't like posting photos with lots of unpainted armies as they aren't all that attractive.

I am still alive guys. Just have had a disappointing May being struck down with a wicked flu that has really taken the wind out of my sails in both motivation and ability to get out of bed.

Makes me wonder why I got the flu shot this year. First time in a long time and it didn't seem to do me any good.

But I am finally on the mend with some lovely drugs to speed the process along. So hopefully back to painting soon.

Thanks for checking in and reading.

Still trying to get myself back together. I would say it was too long after the jab for it to have been the cause. But gee it has knocked me about.

Although I will be leaning on the community for some hobby advice on how to set up my new hobby space in the new house my wife and I purchased a little while ago. Plan to officially move into it once she goes on maternity leave. So a bit to do before that happens. One of which is I am framing up the inside of the shed to have a sealed hobby side and the other half will have all my tools and machines in it.

I will have a space that measures approximately 5,86m x 2.7m fully insulated and air conditioned hobby space. I want to obviously have a gaming table and shelves for books and models to display. Will have a corner desk for painting and the like.

But does anyone have any advice or ideas for what I should do/include/avoid in my setting the place up?

Any thoughts or advice most welcome.

Wall space is more critical than you might expect, so try to save as much of that as possible by making a lot of long but thin shelves to store your paint, and organise each colour range for the shelves. Makes painting so much easier and saves on space as well. I can't comment on making a table since I don't have one, but as for displaying armies - get a display cabinet, and try to add extra glass shelves to fit armies that don't have large models. You can get double the amount of armies in the same cabinet, but you can still see them all very well.

Hi everyone, hopefully there are a few still out there tracking my progress. I have gotten back in the swing of things (although still juggling my time). I have framed up the shed to have a hobby side and trade side. But more importantly I have gotten back to the painting table and now have 40 Necron Warriors assembled and undercoated. I also have two 38 Dwarf Warriors ready to be painted too. So hopefully the remains of this month will be a very productive painting month.

BUT, I need the help of those still with me as I have to figure out a scheme for my Necron. I want to keep it fairly basic, but different to the norm. To that end I have done a couple of test models. So please have a look and give me your opinions. Please forgive the mold lines as they are only test models. Also, I need to figure out a colour for the gun. I am thinking black or a very dark blue. Will be using the traditional neon green for the cables to go with the green rods.

Obviously I need to think how this will scale up to go onto a Monolith (or two).





Really appreciate any critique or criticism especially as I would like to get painting this weekend.

Thanks for reading.

I hadn't thought of having different metals with the off white tying them all together. That's a really interesting concept. Could make the monoliths a nice patchwork......

To catch everyone up - wife is pregnant, bought a slightly larger house (with a huge shed), working tirelessly to prepare house for moving in and when baby arrives, this includes dividing shed into machinery side and hobby side, have been quite sick which has interfered with family plans and hobby plans, now back on track and needing to paint Necron and Dwarf models.

Good to see you up and kicking! First kiddo? It will destroy your sleep but they actually snooze a lot typically so if you can fight thru the sleep deprivation you can still get a fair bit done. Once they're toddlers you're in trouble!

Can't say on the necrons, my phone isn't showing enough difference to make a fair assessment.

It is indeed our first child (if you ignore the two dogs, two cats, a fish tank full of fish and 22 zebra finches) so I am hoping I can be the awesome husband and "look after" the baby and by that mean have them quietly snoozing next to my painting table.

I am actually starting to come around to the idea of switching the colours around and have a bone body and metal plates on the outside and vary the metallics among the squads.

So I have had another idea for the Necron. It is a sort of reverse of the previous schemes where the bone is the core colour and the metallic is the plates. It kind of has the effect of making the Necron look a lot like an armoured skeleton. Which I think is kind of fitting since I see Necrons as undead in space. Would appreciate your thoughts on it I have also gone with a dark grey washed in black for the gun which I think will work quite well.

Seems that Photobucket no longer wants to allow me to use their website for 3rd party hosting. Which is a massive pain in the proverbial.

As I have a lot of photos through this blog I looked into upgrading my account. But let's say $300 a year is not worth it in my opinion for a pretty average website that is already plastered with annoying ads and pop ups.

So, anyone have some suggestions on where I can host stuff as an alternative?

I host my images on my wordpress blog. That works perfectly, easy to upload, easy to edit, good overview and fast. You dont actually need to publish anything on your wordpress blog to get image hosting.

Another option is to upload to dakka, the upload process is annoying, but it is free and works fine when uploaded.

Photobucket has gradually gotten worse and worse. I classified them as totally worthless years ago. Your life will get better by leaving that horrible company behind. The way they behave, you would almost think Tom Kirby had found himself a new job after GW

I pay 3 dollars a month. You can also go totally free, but I can´t vouch for how well the gallery works then. 3 dollars get you 6GB of storage. 5 dollars give you 13 GB and 21 give you unlimited

Imgur is free, and appears to have a good relationship with reddit, which as we all know is huge. I'm using them for my "forum" photo hosting while also importing stuff into wordpress for the wordpress blog. I'll look into payments and so forth once all my stuff is safely across.

Yeah, with people reporting that they can host their external photos via Wordpress, I'll likely sub to their $3/month plan as well. I can't figure out how to organise pics there into folders yet, but I'll sort that out later
