I clearly need to turn myself over to the commissar... these new chaos models have been far too distracting!  My plan is to get my vow finished up this week since I have a few days in between quitting my old job and starting my new one.  I'm pretty close, so I think I can pull it off... at least as long as I stay strong and don't get distracted by my shiny new night lords!

Yeah I may have been a bit optimistic with mine.

I’m losing a few weekends too as apparently doing Warhammer on her Birthday, Easter, and our Anniversary weekends is frowned upon!

I had a thought today that could use some feedback before I start priming. I plan on using these veterans in a mixed Cadian and Tempests force with the Droptroop special detachment. Would it be worth giving them a heavy flamer in addition to the plasma and running them in a valkyrie rather than sitting back with the rest of the gun line?

Depends on what you need. If you're planning on going all in with the forward assault then an extra push for that would help. Alternatively someone to hang back a bit for support is also useful, so it may be a decision from what else your army is made from :)

If they're in flamer range I don't think they'll last very long! For Catachans who can follow up with combat yes, for Cadians I'd rather stay back a bit!

 

Cadian Veterans actually make great objective campers, BS3+ and allowing them to have several special weapons and a heavy weapons team means they can still put out a lot of damage when given Take Aim.

Her first bout has been scheduled for the 20th, doing a stronghold assault mission versus a combined BA and IF force and I'm one of the attackers.

A challenge is a challenge till it is beaten, then it is a victory.
The greater the challenge the greater the victory, so I challenge the impossible.

I'm really happy I asked because I have the terrible habit of forgetting that infantry and veteran squads can take heavy weapons. I organize my process on kits and because the heavy weapon teams are completely separate they slip from my mind. I'm going to build a lascannon for the veterans.

I do! It looks great. I'm guessing it involves removing the masking tape in layers for each step?

Spray it one colour, add masking/stencils, repeat a few times, then peel it all off (the fun bit).

 

The masking prevents the next layer of paint from reaching the model and when peeled off it leaves the outline of the mask.
