Adan's project thread

Post by Adan » Tue Nov 27, 2012 2:22 pm

<<Last edit 04/27/17>>

First of all, here are links to my current armies:
Alpha Legion
Black Templars ("The Dark Knights")
Grey Knights
Sisters of Battle
Imperial Guard (Mordians)

I have TOO MANY additional army projects in the mix. I thought it would help me to get them all in one place, and then I could update as I go (and add them to my signature 8-) )

In (VERY) rough chronological order of how I would like to proceed:

-------------------------------
**ON HOLD**
The Tzeentch Marines project is also just started, and behind the Alpha Legion. I need to:
--Assemble/paint the Termie Sorcerer
--Acquire the Dark Apostle [DONE]
--Assemble & paint everything, except the Daemon Prince.

-------------------------------
The Dark Angels need to be inventoried, assessed, have a list finalized and then finish the army. I have 4 DA dreads, PLUS an unbuilt FW one, a Land Raider and a bunch of PA dudes and some termies.
<<Now part of the Chapter project>>

-------------------------------
The Sisters need to be (finally) finished off.
--Reassemble the rhinos that fell apart
--Paint the Multi-melta turret(s) for my Immolators
--Paint the last 3 squads of primed Sisters

----------------------------------------------
I want to finish my Mordians. This involves:
--Acquiring 2 more seated Mordians for Heavy Weapons
--Starting/Finishing the painting

-------------------------------
**ON HOLD - May Be Part of HH Alpha Legion project**

I still want to do my "Flight of The Eisenstein" army. This is a project based the "old" story of the Eisenstein as detailed in the source information at the Lexicanum: http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Eisenstein

(13) Captain Garro plus 12 Death Guard -- FW 5 Breachers, 10 Mark II
(16) Captain Varren plus 15 World Eaters -- FW 5 Red Butchers, 10 Mark II Despoilers
(10) Captain Tarvitz plus 9 Emperor's Children -- FW 10 Palatine Blades
11 Sons of Horus -- FW 10 Mark IV
20 Thousand Sons -- FW Mark III

As of 2/24/15, FW price of 514.50 GBP/ $795.35

I'm using a Storm Eagle (acquired) to represent the Eisenstein.

-------------------------------------
Grey Knights.... It was my first army, and the GKTs are still my favorite models. I need to:
--Sort out how many dudes I have
--Get the paint scheme sorted
--Paint the models.

------------------------------------
Talons of the Emperor
Box Set, plus one of each size of Custodes tank


------------------------------------
HH Alpha Legoin


-------------------------------------
3 Knights


-------------------------------------
Eldar
Finished, except
--Finish painting/basing Wraithblades

-------------------------------------
Dark Eldar
Acquired, need to paint

-------------------------------------
Tau
Need to organize & assess

-------------------------------------
OH YEAH! I almost forgot. There's this crazy idea too.

That is a rather massive 'to do' list. Good idea to break it down into steps like you have done.

Seeing the first thing on your list is a new sorcerer, here is my Alpha Legion sorcerer I converted a few years ago. Quite a simple conversion adding the high elf sea guard dragons to any helmet. Legs are Dark Angles, loincloth and staff are from the terminator sorcerer/lord kit.

Hope that helps, good luck with all that work.

That guy is AWESOME. I have a bunch of Sea Guard -- I may have to "borrow" that idea... ;)

Well.... I know someone who did a fantastic job painting my CSM Alpha Legion. I should find out if he's willing to do some more on commission... ;)

Is there more info about this?
Bolter marines never go out of fashion. They are the little black dress of troops choices.

Not yet. Mike and I are getting the details worked out, but I think it will be basically be a "build from scratch" type of thing, with milestones and points for attaining different levels, and then prizes associated with that. Again, we haven't finalized anything, other than we know we want to do it (and I know what army I'm doing).

We (Endgame and The 40K Fight Club) did a "Finish An Army Challenge" at the store about three years ago, and it was great.

Might be enough to get me to finish up my Necron Army I'm been poking around with.

I priced out the FW models for the Eisenstein army... 434 GBP, or $700. Ouch. And that's without doing any special for the models of Garro, Varren & Tarvitz... Which of course HAVE to be special...
