Change of Plans

Slight change of plans. While talking with Evil Homer the other day about our plans for Wargames Con, I realized something. Any of my armies would work for the team tournament as I view that as a mainly fun event. The GT is another thing entirely. I did not feel that any of the armies I currently own were going to give me the chance I wanted. I know, I could go down there and get my tail spanked with this army just as well, but I like my odds a bit better.

So Imperial Guard it is. I have a limited window to complete this army. Since school says I do not have much free time, I had to hit the ground running and get as much done as I can. I took advantage of the local tournament I hosted this past weekend and went on an assembly spree. 3 Chimeras, a Hellhound, a Manticore, and 3 Heavy Weapon teams joined the Chimera, Manticore, Colossus, and 6 Heavy Weapon teams I already had assembled. I topped that off with 2 Vandettas on Sunday. Outside of the weapon teams, I don't think any of them are completely assembled, but they are good enough I can start getting practice games.

I am still waiting on one more Chimera, and I have 60 infantry to build yet. Then I have to decide on a color scheme and get them all painted. We'll see how this goes. I know one thing for sure, my airbrush is going to get quite a workout.

Airbrushing Base Colors: Part II

 So I promised some WIPs for my Chaos Marines and I was able to spend some time on them this week. Just as I show here, I have been working with using my airbrush for mass base coats. I am still tinkering with the process, but I am fairly pleased with what I have here. This is pic below is the finished product and what the rank and file of the army will look like.

After the jump I have a walk through on how I did the base color.

Post 100...When is organized too organized..?

Well, I sat down to write a quick post and low and behold this is my 100th post. I would have never thought when I started this blog that I would have made it to 100 post. In addition, I think it is neat the amount of people that come and look at my digital diarrhea and for that I thank you.

So I managed to work in quite a bit of hobby time this weekend. I got all my Chaos Marines stripped and broken down into as small of pieces as I could with out breaking stuff. Saturday I got the parts all separated into the parts that I want to use. Is this a bit over the top?

I Don't Paint Like That No More!!

I have been going through a bit of a funk lately. School is taking a large chunk of my free time so the hobby time has been extremely limited. The problem is, with the limited time I have I am starting to tire of painting black and white on Templar so I have been looking for something different to do. I decided to take a crack at working on my future Chaos Marine army.

See, I have an Emperor's Children army that I started a long time ago. This was my attempt at a fluff based list. It was pretty much done construction and in the painting stages. After a while of playing the army the current codex was released and pretty much torpedoed the army I had constructed. I made several attempts to try to figure out a way to make the army work, but the codex really does not allow for a very good mono-god Slaanesh.
