YITH I removed the metal tabs from the bottom of my metal vets and masters of the chapter. I will be putting them on some cork basing. That's all I managed to do. :(

And no hobby time this weekend as I am taking the nephew on a cub scout camp out.

Tithi found the ooold 'battle cars' gw game on the spectrum. Was at it for over half an hour and still didnt get any further than turning the car on the spot.
Got bored and built 6 raptors instead and managed to actually stab myself with a plastic cataphracti lightning claw. They really hurt!!

Unbearable, isn't it? The suffering of strangers, the agony of friends. There is a secret song at the centre of the world, and its sound is like razors through flesh.

Today I finished my fifth Dunecrawler and got my second Warhound back from its assembly commission.


Personally, I think they are coming. Like a massive electrified thousand ton ball of barbed wire with hundreds of trapped and frustrated gamers embedded in it, rolling down a hill. "That, Bilbo Baggins, is the sound of inevitability."

I'm also trying very hard to find the shake my painting depression and actually slap some colour onto my Imperial Space Marine I have primed. I keep convincing myself that: "It's going to suck and end up in a simple green bath anyways, so, why bother?" unsure.png

In us burns a fire for vengeance that will only be quenched when we stand triumphant over the smoldering ruins of Terra. Our laughter on that day will haunt their survivors till the end of time. We will stride forth victorious through the shattered gates of their fortress, holding high aloft the defiled corpse of their rotting god as our prize.

Today in the Hobby, I finally decided to paint over my WIP Red Lords who will never get used for anything, and replace them with a fresh squad from the Warminds Chapter.

 

So far I've half-painted a bunch of legs and back plates, leaving them a weird, extra-festive blend of red, gold and green.

I planned to go back and give them the fully green treatment...Then I remembered I actually need to be spending my free time on sorting out the Liber Campaign.  laugh.png

 

But given those legs have sat there unused for two years, I guess another couple of days won't be too terrible. sweat.gif

Tith I secured Deathwatch overkill and angels of death suppliment... Sadly had to pass up the new knight duel kit.. but I don't have a pile of magnets ready yet so I guess it can wait...

On a side note, this probably makes my tyranid army bigger than my imperial guard now...

TITH my copy of Angels of Death finally arrived. Now I'm desperately trying to find any information on something called an 'Iron Guardians' formation is, if it's even a thing at all (it's mentioned in the Sons of Gorgon section). I know what the unit composition is but not if it actually has any supporting rules/benefits.

Yesterday in the hobby I lamented once more that there was no original Warhammer song when you can't throw a stick on YouTube without hitting a My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic song.

 

Today in the hobby I took pictures for an update of my works in progress and for a new Hall of Honour thread.

 

I haven't had a chance to look at them yet, but reading over the new Salamanders rules in Angels of Death should prove inspirational. biggrin.png

I just want to be able to take two special weapons in a tactical squad. I'd trade everything from chapter tactics to the specific detachment and from heavy flamers in tactical squads to artificer armor and thunder hammers on sergeants just to be able to take two flamers or two meltaguns in my troops.
