More Pictures!

Post by blockade23 » Wed Jul 31, 2013 1:24 pm

Just wanted to post a bit more.

If I have time, I also want to finish painting....

HB Razorback
Sniper Scouts (got for free! still in the box!)
Deimos Pattern Predator Executioner
Melta and Shotgun Elysian Vets (Will be added/switched into current vet squad w/ Valkyrie)
5 Man Breacher Squad

So yes, that's four tanks, roughly 30 guys still to go with both the hobby challenge and my own personal wish-list.

And I'm already thinking about next year's Hobby Challenge, I'm thinking Traitor Guard and Chaos to get rid of last few non-painted holdouts.

August Done!

Post by blockade23 » Sat Aug 17, 2013 8:18 pm

Hi all,

Just finished both the Platoon Command Squad and last infantry squad. Will post pictures soon. Also just had a battle today against the SM/IG combo (I played my standard IG loadout, decided I needed more leman russes.) They did pretty well, all things considering. Captain lasted till the end of the game, but definitely need to get him a transport.

Thanks! For the terminators and captain I used some of the secret weapon miniature bases - a combo of trench works and Urban rubble. It is very hard to base feet in urban rubble is what I found. Most of the standard space marines are in bases that use sand and bits of balsa wood or GW building kits. I've also found that bits of guard tanks look good on bases as well.

Unfortunately I seemed to have let uploading my pictures go too far. My main computer has died and I don't think I can upload from my iPad. I'll have to try and figure something out!

Hi all!

Well I'm still alive! My computer died, but I should be able to have new photos up this weekend. I've got some progress to show, and will hopefully have more :-)

At the least, the apothecary is done, and I plan on having a tank done by the weekend as well. That will leave me with just the Stormtroopers, command squad remnants and a chimera to paint :-)

Yay!

Finally, an Update

Post by blockade23 » Sun Oct 06, 2013 6:16 pm

Hi all,

Real life + Computer problems have served to really get in my way with posting updates, so here is Septembers + August's update, along with the plan for October. I'll be posting a photo of the entire current army in the next post.

I have completed a standard Leman Russ with full loadout, including side-sponsons. If you recall, my goal was to complete this challenge using the majority of pieces already owned by me. As this leman russ came to me with the standard lascannon and side sponsons load out, I resolved to paint it and get it done, rather than spend more time fiddling. Rest assured, the next leman russ I purchase will be magnetized, now that I've learned that skill!

I also managed to do the first unit marking ever on a Leman Russ... sad, I'm a guard player and eschew unit markings. (it's not like they survive the battle...)

Also, I managed to complete a sentinel with plasma cannon - a point sink, but again, remember my goal.

Finally, got a bit of scenery making down - completed a 1x1 park (in two pieces) to fit with my eventual secret weapon miniature ruined city terrain board - the 1x1 tiles will plop right in, and provide more realistic city elements, rather than just sidewalk and roads for miles. Plus I can then extend a 16 tiles board into a 20 or 24 tile board using scenery :-) For a lot cheaper, eh? :-) (It also works for the rolling hills set, as it could just be a small bit of civilization in the wilderness)

Anywho, critique and comments always appreciated. I'm still gaining basic painting skills here...

October and November Goals

Post by blockade23 » Sun Oct 06, 2013 6:59 pm

Well, this is it, the last two units to finish.

Blam, it has been one long year, but I feel very proud of myself for completing so much.

The units I MUST finish are...

Command Squad (Must check on whether it is five members or four... plus I'll have to adjust points cost accordingly.)

Finished so far is Captain and Apothecary, plus a standard space marine vet (will probably be replaced)
To finish - Standard Bearer and Champion, along with counts as Graviton Gun

IG Stormtrooper squad - all ten troopers need to be finished...

If I'm fast, I could finish....

Ten Marines w/ boarding shields (counts as tac squad OR if opponent is nice, I'll pay more points for them to count as siege mantlets as in Imperial Armor - reroll failed armor saves but comes with slow and purposeful)

Five Sternguard, Five Vanguard Vets (magnetized!) and a Centurion Squad.

Oh, and Razorback plus plasma predator.

Busy Busy!

Looking good, there. Nice to see more hobby progress on the IG. I would recommend flock for the grass on your park, otherwise that's a nice terrain piece you've got there.

I don't generally have much luck with flock, but I'm looking into using the small tufts of grass that GW or any other hobby supplier sells. That, and I've finally figured out how to use matte varnish over my models. Will using that ruin flock?
