Today's work on the display board. I love Vallejo dark earth effect, instant mud :)

Base coating done and the base layers of dark earth texture added

Followed by a second layer of dark earth to make tank track patterns across the board (hard to see now but should pop when I dry brush) and then painted. So tomorrow should be a black wash of everything followed by dry brushing and a few touch ups to finish. Nice thing about terrain is you don't have to be neat...

haha I too immediately plastered filler over all the stupid corpse piles in my defense line. I've only painted a couple of the bunkers and primed the rest so far though. Using that same color scheme actually, so look forward to seeing yours progress!

Finished off the Display Board this afternoon. Took the photos before the grass's PVA glue finished drying but close enough...

And here it is with the 850 point Assault Brigade IG list I'm taking to a tourney next weekend. I have no idea how well the list will do but I love the idea of having a Leman Russ Vanquisher as my HQ :lol: , that and having a guard list with only 16 models in it (6 of which are vehicles). If my opponents can deal with AV14 I'm in trouble, if not good times.

Fingers crossed a good paint score for this one

Is this for Force Z? Thought I can only see 1 troops choice... Doesn't it have to conform to the standard force org?

Assault brigade list from IA 1 :)

The vanquisher is the hq, the basic russ and execy russ are troops along with the mech infantry squad. So it's 1 hq, 3 troops, 1 hs and 1 fa. I'll show you this list on Thursday night.

I did one version that dropped the infantry/chimera and hydra for another russ (exec or punish) - nothing but 5 vehicles but it was a bit too one dimensional.
