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.

I just can't believe how fast you put the models together...

After putting together two hydras and one chimera I have the tread pattern and hull memorized.
