Mephiston looking good. The picture link doesn't work for me though.

Thank you.
No idea why the link isn't working for you. I posted to my blog because it makes sharing larger pictures easier but I'll pop them in below.
I was worried these pictures would be too big but I guess it's fine.

Thank you.
I finally have a reasonable picture of the Chaplin to share. 
20210429_161029.jpg

 

I found my fisheye lenses... 

I attempted to play a solo game the other day.  I used the list from the previous battle reports, the one posted in this thread. 
Here's the army on the table in one shot. 
20210429_161547.jpg

 

 You can read the battle report from my attempted game  HERE.

 

 I attempted to play a 2000 point game managing both armies. it became a 5 hour nightmare of back pain and delirious rule mistakes. Followed by deciding an Ork victory through attrition of units...   I did learn a few things so there's that. One of the thing I learned is that at this stage 9th is too complicated for a solo game at such a large size, 2000 points. 
And with that the Blood Angels will return at about 1000 points in future solo games. 
Looking back at all the things that happened I realized I had more or less forgotten to spend CP's during the game on stratagems that most likely would have drawn the game out and really helped the Blood Angels swing the match. I am also now seeing a strong reason to add Assault Intercessors to my list. I had an instance where the Orks fought twice and that was just a thing to behold. Primaris would have mad a large dent in the Orks had they been able to do the same. 

Thanks for reading. Hope to be back again with another , hopefully better, battle report in the not too distant future.

Beside your backpain and rules chaos it sounds like a fun idea. I can imagine being on your feet for 5 hours straight while bending over a table can be quite stressful :). Nice terrain you got there man. The action shot of you chaplain looks badass and the army as a whole looks fantastic, too. May I ask what kind of battlemat you are using?

Thanks. Yes it was just madness once the dice started to roll.  Looking back now I had more fun that I had realized at the time. 
The mat I made from felt with Gesso and then painted with a big disposable brush and some bits of left over pluck foam held together with a rubber band . 
It's really easy to do. I had the fabric for quite some time and had to cut it down. the gesso was maybe 8 dollars us the rest was craft paint and fairly inexpensive. I had most of it around already for terrain painting and diy projects. 
Just let the gesso dry before you move on to painting or tint it with ink or dirty washes/nasty paint water. I had tan fabric but might have saved time if I had chosen a darker color to use as  a base to build from. I just chose the same colors I use for the bases of my armies for the mat. Best part is it rolls up with no problems. I recall putting come gesso in my water cup as well as on the mat to really get it in the fabric.  It did smell a bit but nothing that remains noticeable. I think it's the smell of craft paint. 
The mat is a third too long and I'll trim that off for 1000 point game size. it's a little funny though as the book only lists the minimum table size not the required table size. had I realized that I would have had it either 4X6 or 4X8. I may make another one or two later and matching terrain. Rebuild my jungle collection and a matching mat. 
Let me know if you make one your self! 

The terrain. I've made terrain for about 20 years now off and on it 's a lot of fun. I'm trying really happy with how it's turning out so far. I kinda want it to look like it would be believable background on a tv show or movie. Some of it is getting there, still have more in the works!  I love diy terrain.

Had to Google what gesso actually is 😀. So it's a diy mat. Cool as hell! Did you use sand to get the rough texture or is it just the paint? Or is it flat and it's just an optical illusion?
Unfortunately I just don't have the time to finish such a project in an acceptable time frame with my family and work. I don't find hardly any time to build and paint miniatures to begin with.
But anyways I think you really capture a theme with your terrain there. Even in professional batreps I often think the terrain is just thrown together without much thought. Need a Los blocker? Bam, half a gothic ruin in the middle of a desert and some pristine containers right beside it...

The mat took me about 3 days with lots of drying time and not being in a rush. it is a bit textured from the Gesso and the felt fuzz, it's not bad in my opinion it's just not smooth like a store bought mat.  I had been planning to buy one myself but didn't ever find one I could get excited enough about to buy. The diy mat took only a few hours work over 3 days most of the time was just letting a step dry.  If you can't you can't. Or, maybe you have a local gamer/hobbyist you can bribe to do it for you... ?  who knows you might help make some one a fortune. Material costs are fairly low maybe 30 or 40 dollars.  Just find some glue sniffer you can pay in 25MM bases and your set! teehee.gif (ermm.gifermm.gif - Really dude... What's wrong with you.... )
gg I know what you mean about those batreps. I know Blue Table Painting  has had their ups and downs over they years but the one thing I liked about their videos used to be their terrain. The effort was there and they probably planned to sell it at some point.  I think terrain building is probably a little intimidating. I have a large material supply after all these years (and I'm starting to raid my bitz box! ) I think about playability and what theme do I like, some of what I've made is just junk that will be repurposed, a sort of place holder so I can get some games in. What also funny is how much of the terrain I've made is still in a local shop from almost 20 years ago. Back when I thought I was going to make a terrain shop on Ebay. I didn't know anything about how to go about it back then.

Update.

Finally! 
gallery_3442_16212_291401.jpgYou've seen the Stormspeeder on the left before. The one on the right is the new one. Just got the first squad of Heavy Intercessors last Thursday as part of payment to me for painting some models. 1 more box still due. I'll have them soon enough I think.  I'm considering 3 ATV's right now. May well pull the trigger on them this week, we'll see. 
I'm starting my next army list to try. My usual opponent is playing knights again and I want to bring the pain. My goal is to beat him in at least two games back to back this year and hopefully 5 next year. I have yet to win a game of 9th so far. I've got a fair grasp of the rules now I think, which was my primary concern.  I tried Orks for a few games and I feel it was a set back after the good game I played just before that and want to get back to making a better showing when I am out for a game. 
I'm going to try to build a fast army that hopefully hits hard as well and try to learn how to play it. Doesn't sound like we're having that club tournament this year. Our TO has retired from running the event and I have not heard who might run it if anyone at all.  I had been building this army to learn to play and then take to that tournament. We'll see. 

 I'll try to post again in less that 60 dys this time and maybe have that army list to share in that post. 

Thanks for reading.

Good job on the models. I must also commend your photography skills; presentation is more important than many people realize, and I cannot appreciate a modeler's efforts if his/her models are photographed under bad lighting, or against a background the models will fade into, due to similar colors.

Thankyou. biggrin.png 

 I have been trying to take better pictures as I have been taking less pictures, less wip pictures. But I like putting up nice pictures when I get models finished. I take pictures under natural light outside when the shade gets just right, in the right spots, just use some black felt for the back drop. It's worked really well so far.  I just use my phone digi cam set to 1080P and I have a clip on fish eye lens from a lens set I got for hardly anything online. 
Thankyou again.

Update.

Nearly done with three more Inceptors.  
I'm still looking for at least 6 more But I'll settle for three more as long as I can find a deal. Partly wondering if or rather how Inceptors with Assault bolters sack up for points and damage out put against the ATV's. I have yet to order any but am still tempted to. 
I'm shifting my army ideas again. What I would like is a list that feels more like a thematic BA list but again still purely Primaris so I am thinking about trying to maximize the number of fast attack choices I field.  
I'm going to download Battle scribe tomorrow morning and set about building my list. And then refine it over several games. Some of the club are very competitive tournament type people. I'm not about to do that sort of thing but my good friend does and I want to play as competitively as I can with him now. with the idea that steel sharpens steel. I want to beat him at least two games in a row and hopefully 5 in a row by this time next year. Mean while I know he wants brutal completive games to help him get stronger for tournaments.  Honestly I am really looking forward to playing a few more games and having a better showing. My lack of games is part of the reason I struggle to enjoy 9th edition. I have decided the best thing I can do is as I said above build that list and then learn to play it, exclusively.   

The slaughter continues!

Starting to relearn Battle Scribe. First list attempt.  
Not sure if I like this list or not yet. My next attempt will be two detachments. I thought there should have been  way to mark off other CP expenditures for reserves or what ever, pregame stuff, but haven't found it yet.  work in progress. wacko.png 
I'm noticing it doesn't let me mark my warlord in the detachment, I thought the army was "refunded" the CP costs of the warlords detachment. 
Or maybe I am misremembering? More things I should already know. I'll reread that bit later today.

Nice work on the Speeders and Gravis guys!
I'm also working on one Storm Speeder at the moment and got a question - how extensively have you been magnetising them? And did you magnetise the flying stem?

I didn't magnetize anything. It's all glued even the stem.  

You could magnetize the top turret and the side weapons but you shouldn't need to magnetize the front weapon off the hull, it just plugs in. The top turret could be magnetized to offer either of the missile options but I am not sure now if you could change them all out for the Stubbers or not. I don't use magnets, just never got into it. Maybe there's a tutorial on youtube?

That's ok, I was just curious how you approached the topic. 
I have already magnetised the front weapons :P Although I only used one magnet in the hull and weapons have pieces of metal nails glued at the end.
I also magnetised the turret so that I can slot the stubbers into the launchers' housing and both rocket options can simply plug in. I don't actually expect this to be that necessary, but wanted a mental excersise teehee.gif

I didn't magnetise the sponsons though. And also the 2 big rockets will be just glued in place. I appreciate the yellow tips you did on yours by the way thumbsup.gif
