Experimented a little with faces on the few helmetless models in the force. Also got the basing mostly done on the infantry. I also gave waaagh flesh base rims ago and it seems to work and is a slight nod to the goblin green of old. I'm almost disappointed how close they come across to professional soldiers after being worried that the light green would look a bit like a daft little horde of green power rangers. Its only the aggressors and dreadnoughts I need to get started on.

Speaking of the aggressors I'm converting a gravis captain into the sergeant for the aggressor squad so had to sculpt him a new bum.

Progress is still moving along on the librarian. He gets a gold chest eagle because he's a proper officer and yellow would blend in with his robe, I don't like having gold emblems on my basic troops.

Looking good. How do you plan on painting the force sword?

After playtesting I decided to only take my chaos to one of the tournaments I had booked to travel to this month so had to quickly come up with a list to meet a deadline so thought I might as well bring these Invaders to Cardiff. (I'm really just waiting for the Genestealer cult book to come out and it won't be legal at any of the events this month).

 

 

Spoiler

 

That's 7 out of 18 CP spent before the game begins, I was having a laugh (because I'm just waiting around to start practicing with a completely different army). At least I can anti-horde.

 

My full planned 2k list won't be ready in two weeks when I have to leave for Cardiff but I thought I could get these aggressors done so now I have a deadline to get them started.

No idea as of this moment. I've been putting off painting my lieutenant's power sword as well.

Managed to get the aggressors down okay before the tournament despite Steam tricking me into wasting a few days on a free trial on Sid Meier's Civilisation VI.

I also gave a go at paying the librarian's robe some more attention.

 

gallery_85153_15039_394093.png

 

After getting back from the tournament I got the librarian's coat coated.

Good jobs. Is the Librarian's coat meant to be metallic- maybe of a psychically sensative material, to help him focus his powers or defend him from enemy psychic attacks?

Its meant to be leather and I was following a 'eavy metal guide from white dwarf, I only use metalic metalics. The highlights on the less sharp folds look wrong on the photo so I might do something about them but worn and creased dark brown leather does look like that.

I did the ancient's body a long time ago but hadn't got started on the banner until the morning of the tournament. Most of the details were done after getting back.

I think the Ancient will look better if his bolt rifle was raised, ready to fire. Nonetheless, he and his standard are well-painted.

Decided to sell most of the loyalist half of Shadowspear to limit collection ballooning but I'm keeping these ones.

Then I lost the sergeant's rifle...

You had me at Invaders. Oddly memorable colour scheme for a minor chapter. You've done it well.

For some reason I always thought of them as very American inspired, probably because of the Star.

Did some more work on this guy a while ago but forgot to post it. This is still the sculpt that sold me on the Primaris range.

Leather and cloaks done. Pretty much just metal, faces and those binoculars left before basing.

I'm pretty much off the Primaris train at this point so once I have my Reivers and Dreadnoughts done unless I suddenly get a decent income I'll only pick up the odd model if it really grabs me.

Excellent work on the Ancient. The Primaris Invaders are well-painted and detailed- love the camouflage pattern on their camo cloaks.

Based the phobos guys, still have to get a force sword done before I leave for the tournament at the weekend.

 

Finally got the cloak on my captain done.

Managed to find my Eliminator sergeant's gun where it had slipped onto a bookshelf. Got these guys based a back in may but didn't get round to posting them.

 

gallery_85153_15039_716552.png

Made a rushed attempt at a force sword at the same time.

 

 

gallery_85153_15039_1250531.png

 

Getting these backpacks out of the way for when I start on the rest of my Phobos troops after ETL. They're boring so I'm trying to edge highlight 1-2 per day.

Kit bashing with some easy to build reivers due to having only 8 Reivers thanks to a conversion project so I needed to buy more to fill out to a 10 man unit and thought I might as well get round the pose duplication in the Shadowspear Infiltrators at the same time.

Getting 3 colours on these guys for a tournament that's annoyingly around the time ETL is going to end.

Got my three colours on them a few days ago, when to the 3 game tournament yesturday.

 

Defeated Blood Angels and Chaos Knights with Emperor's Children and Slaanesh Daemons allies, got flattened by Custodes tanks who just hid out of range with their 2 damage guns.

 

Captain Higgins did very well with the Champion of Humanity warlord trait and his power fist. I used to alternate between this trait and Storm of Fire and now that the later doesn't stack with Combat Doctrines and my army is almost entirely assault/rapid fire I don't feel like I'm nerfing myself with the trait I actually want. He managed to finish off both a Wardog and a Rampager very easily.

 

I'm bringing the same list to a full 5 game tournament next weekend.

 

Battalion

Captain with power fist and plasma pistol, armour indomitus -1cp, Champion of Humanity warlord trait

Lieutenant with power sword

 

10 Intercessors with power fist sergeant and bolt rifles

10 Intercessors with power sword sergeant and stalker bolt rifles, grenade launcher

5 Intercessors with chain sword sergeant and bolt rifles

6 Aggressors with auto boltstorm gauntlets and frag launchers

Primaris Ancient

5 Inceptors with paired assault bolters

3 Eliminators with bolt sniper rifles

10 Helblasters with plasma incinerators

 

Battalion

Phobos Librarian with Ghostweave cloak, Hero of Chapter -cp Fire and Fade, Mind raid and Tenebrous Curse

Librarian with might of heroes and psychic fortress

5 Intercessors with chain sword sergeant and bolt rifles, grenade launcher

5 Infiltrators

5 Infiltrators

Painted enough for the tournament tomorrow, will try and get more done today since squad markings will be helpful.

 

gallery_85153_15039_443014.png

 

Hadn't put these guys up at all in this thread so here they are.

Day one at the tournament I got 1 win against Imhotek, triple croissants and triple doomsday arcs, got flattened by Tau with 2 Riptides and 3 broadsides and lost by 1 point against Eldar flyers, managing to shoot down 5/7 with my boltguns thanks to bolter drill and the chapter master stratagem.

 

So with a win or two today I should be firmly in the middle and possibly the top or second pure marine player.
