Well, well, well..... I bet you guys never thought you'd see this thread get updated?

Well behold the Outriders:

That's a big picture... it shows off lots of flaws, but White Scars really don't care for such minor concerns.

The truth is I had primed these guys White before I found out I was getting my UM's back and before the sale of my painted WS.

Is it insane to actively play/paint two marine armies? Don't answer that. :)


Nice bikes!

To answer your question; no it’s not insane. I paint 4 armies at the same time. I guess it quadruples the overall-cost of the hobby amongst other things but keep me from burning out and loose interest. On my board I have white scars, alpha legion, iron hands and grey knights 😋

That's a good point. I'll get to a point where I can't stand painting the blue hues of the Ultra's, and the stark contrast in styles doing the White Scars is a perfect brake from that.

Yes, I’m a fast painter but the downside of that is burning out, and to have different armies really prevent that; usually I paint 1 week white scars -> 1 week iron hands and so on, it’s nice!

That’s good advice. I am going to stop feeling silly about doing 2 marine armies. :tu:

 

ive been playing my WS again with some UM fill ins and they actually feel quite different than UM and only a few units really overlap.

Hi Guys it's been a while.

 

I'm slowly doing up models I have laying around, and a few of them are from friends.... I just had another game vs. DG too... man that has become my nemesis!

The Khan!!!!

Really enjoyed doing the face this time. I took a bit of a characterful approach to the colouring and facial structure.

Forgot the unsung hero of my last game! 

 

The Thunderstrike! I played extremely cagey with him and he lasted the game. That's a first for me, but again I really limited its exposure to serious threats:

Are the pilots easy to paint separately?   

 

Is this unit worth 170 points?  I just dont think so but I have no experience with or against it.

No it's definitely over pointed. It is super fun because of the new terrain you see on most tables... you find you have these great opportunities to just pop past obscuring terrain and try to overload something. BUT you have to overload it, because these Speeders are absolute paper. 

 

I love the model... the stand is too high though so it is extremely hard to hide it. In pictures I don't think this comes across very well, but even though I haven't technically measured, I believe the top of the turret measures above 5" making it really difficult to use single floor ruins as obscuring.

 

The Pilots aren't bad. What I did was glue the edge guard bars separately to make them more accessible.

Thank you. And that's a timely compliment as I just came into some of the new Bladeguard and plan to add them to this army. Can't wait to get started....
