Not going to bother with a review as it's all change now. However, my Paladin munching through two Knights was ace (it's what she does best) and my Scout Sergeant taking out a Knight was brilliant (I'm going to miss melta bombs in combat). Looking forward to persisting with this list in 8th!

It was the 5th knight. Turned the tide.

I haven't made a knight list for 8th yet but I think I can only get 4 in a 2k army now.

Trying to decide what to do next.

 

Basically I was working on my bikes but I had to pack them and all my painting stuff away* when I went to WHW. Essentially this means I've got a clean slate for the two months prior to the start of From Rage to Salvation. Do I:

  • Carry on with the bikes
  • Work on (and maybe finish) my Knights
  • Do some scenery
  • Other

Half tempted to leave the bikes for the RTS but I was going to use it to finish off a bunch of characters... Other could be anything from finishing off my myriad of half jobs to even doing non-BA stuff ohmy.png

 

* Four kids aged 6, 5, 5, & 1 running rampant whilst I'm off for the weekend? I should have bought door locks.

Whilst true, I'd argue that nothing is ever finished.

I think the aegis line is best; your don't have to worry about a high quality standard because it's only terrain, you get to check something off your list.

ADL would be a great warmup, quick and dirty!

 

Then get your Air Defence Command Platform done (Tarantula?), again a small and easy one plus a bit of red practice.

 

THEN do your bikes, they're the best "project" on there and treat your completion of those with a character ;)

Astorath and Karlaen will be the easiest to make a huge impact on your games. Asian because of his rules, Karlaen because captains are great buffers now, and thunder hammer and storm bolter is a good load out for combat and counter charges.

Working on my Stormraven's base:

 

Spoiler

 

Usual basing method, but I've used the larger chunks bag and I've added some resin blocks as barricades. Plan on giving it a light highlight of Bleached Bone but it's still missing something...?

That base looks great! I'm on my phone and can't check now, but do you have your basing technique detailed in here? If not, can you share it? I'm not sure how I feel about my "urban" bases...

That base looks great! I'm on my phone and can't check now, but do you have your basing technique detailed in here? If not, can you share it? I'm not sure how I feel about my "urban" bases...

 

Well, first you need to settle on something to add to your base. I've genuinely got no idea what I use* but the nearest equivalent I've seen is some flower pot stones found at garden centres. This I add to a base using PVA and then seal it with watered down PVA. This is preferably undercoated whatever colour I'm using and turned a dark grey (most of the time I use Codex Grey (Dawnstone); the Stormraven base being larger allowed me to spray it with Halford's Grey Primer). Then I wash it with Nuln Oil (this is actually a new step but I like the look so...) and drybrush it with Codex Grey, then Fortress Grey (Administratum Grey), then Bleached bone (Ushabti Bone).

 

On my models I don't mind it "splashing" on their legs as the colours appear to me as a clay-like mud. I paint the rims Goblin Green (Warboss Green) as it is a nod back to my older bases and it blends in my vision on how I want my terrain to be (overgrown, muddy, forgotten - I have a lot of ruins).

 

* Seriously no idea. It's a packaging material for chemicals; gold-coloured and lightweight, it was often found to keep glass vials from breaking in metal cans or in large boxes to stop things from rattling around. Going to be really sad when I finally run out

If you think the base is still missing something, maybe add a dead/dying guy? I think some Blood for the Blood God would look great on there. Other options may be to paint hazard stripes on the barricades or maybe add part of a destroyed vehicle?

It looks good but could do with some colour - so as Lemartes suggested a dead Xeno or misc battlefield debris (Rhino door, weapons etc) - anything you can splash a bit of colour on. Tufts of grass or shrubbery would be another option, and the green would contrast nicely with the red of the model itself.

Does dry brushing grey with bone work? I Would use longbeard grey or even white.
Maybe bring the blocks up to a lighter grey or even a blue grey.

 

If you don't want to add anything extra to get more colour in then spot around some brown and sepia wash before the final highlight.

Exactly what I was going to suggest.

 

You know, a nice Biel-Tan green Eldar or five would look great strewn across the base ;)

 

Hazard striped are a great idea too.
