Nice to hear you like them, so do I :)

Tomorrow I'm going to Sweden's biggest 40k tournament to get slapped about for five rounds...
I chose a quite hard list, even though they run with comp, since I'm tired of being beaten because of my sucky lists. I'm also tired of being reliant on mr Lysander. Sure, he's a beast but when he gets hit by four shoota shots and I fail 4 2+ saves, it gets really annoying. So instead I will try a minimized HQ this time:

A Damocles rhino:

It's Helmut the Razorback with the radardish from my homemade Prometheus Land Raider. For only 60 points it is a bargain.

But I also needed stuff I didn't have painted in my army:

A heavy bolter scout with camo cloak for my sniper scouts
Posted Image

The Land Speeder Storm had its Heavy Bolter upgraded to a Heavy Flamer as it never seemed to hit anything...
Posted Image

Also I had ten points left and instead of getting my sergeants some cool combiweapons or anything else pratical I decided to put a siege shield on my vindicator:
Posted Image
It is one of my old magnetized homemade ones so I had to scratch-build the shield, but I think it turned out pretty nifty.

While I was at it I also expanded the golden horde:

Posted Image
Sergeant Braveheart forces his scouts to don blue face paint and grab their bolters. I imagine they're in the final stages before being allowed the use of real powerarmour, hence the weaponry. It's basically a cheap scoring unit with the heavy bolter as the main attraction.

Posted Image
Yet another paper vehicle. This time it's a Land Speeder Typhoon. It will belong in a unit together with two plastic land speeders, one is another Typhoon while the third simply sports a heavy flamer.

I haven't tallied the horde's total yet, but I don't think I've broken 8000 yet :)

Wohoo, more yellow:

Ten assault marines sporting a thunderhammer/stormshield sergeant and two plasmapistoliers:

His shield:

The paper speeder has new friends:

The speeder on the right is my favourite. I got it converted like this from an online auction...

(Broke the 8000 point barrier, the Yellow Apocalypse horde of used marines tallies 8267 points)

Believe it or not, I actually do some marine stuff now and then. Here are some additions to the yellow horde:

Posted Image
Space Marine Captain with relic blade (a chain halberd from before the Horus heresy, talk about relic) and plasma pistol

Posted Image
His command squad; apothecary, three plasma gunners the melta bomb bearer. Or, if you ask him, "Demolitions expert Sanchez".

I'm currently working on ten vanguards without jumppacks. When they're done I only lack the following list until I have all the possible choices in the codex covered:

Chapter Master
Honour Guard
Master of the Forge
Sternguards
Techmarine
Legion of the damned
Scout bikers
Land Raider Redeemer

But first I think I'll try to finish the company. Only three tactical squads with rhinos to go...

*chuckles alittle* I can only imagine the jokes on Sanchez from time to time.
Chaos Space marine: So loyal marine now that you have had some of your head blown off by Our Surperior forces what are you gonna do now?
Space marine: I"M GOING FOR BIONICS!!!
Chaos: shoot...
Space marine: ok dokie *BAM!!!*
Chaos: it burns!!!

Oh, those are nothing compared to the fact that he's still haunted by the thing that happened when he was a scout. You know, pulling the grenade and throwing the pin... The humility!

More yellow!

Posted Image
The vanguards. The sergeant has exchanged his power weapon for a thunderhammer, one vanguard has a stormshield and another one has a lightning claw. The squad gets insanely expensive if you go overboard with the upgrades...

Also an old school rhino/razorback hybrid:

Killsteal is its name. Not for the stormbolter...

Posted Image
...but for it moonlighting as a twin assaultcannon razorback

Just a quick note: I'm actually doing an Apocalypse battle tomorrow. Since it'll be the first time in a year they get to play I'm super stoked. Even though I only get to use 5k of them. Pending a massive hung-over I guess they'll be arriving as reserves tomorrow afternoon...
