So this has become a little less regular than I would have liked so I decided to just show you what I've done in the last couple of weeks, today has a bunch of everything so get ready for so prepare for a photo dump this week, and I'll try to go back to some of my other articles later on this month (September)
I am going to the shadow wars event at warhmmer world at the end of October (a 3k event) and so I decided I needed even more models to make the list even though I already own nearly 4.5k of preheresy marines. So I went for a dreadnought drop pod for my leviathan and a couple of javelins for some cheap antitank and manoverability. Now they are really weak (2HP 11 10 10 i think) but in the October event there is no first blood so I'm not worried about them being blasted off the table as there is not negative to losing a 65pt model in this game.
I've also started painting the drop pod and it is huge and awesome, it's also brought my painting mojo back a little. As someone said on twitter painting drop pods shouldn't do that but I have this thing with space wolves, I just seem to be able to paint them no matter what. So in theory I should have the other bits and pieces for the event done. I will do a separate post on what I'm taking and what I need to get done
Look how big it is!
So the other big thing I've been involved with doing recently is building up an imperial force for my xwing collection (which is debatabley to large now). I managed to pick up 9 ties of varying style from Dangermouse425 (@Dangermouse425) on twitter as well as picking up a Firespray, tie advance prototype and a star viper. Hopefully now I have a large enough range of vessels to play a large force of any of the three factions (also considering getting the mist hunter). I'm actually thinking of filming some of the battle reports that I will be playing to upload them to youtube (what do people think about that?).
It's so diddy and cute
So I haven't really done very much in the way of any AoS but I had a massive games a couple of weeks back with the Hampshire Hammers lot to wrap up the season of war campaign. It was a 9 player games with something like 6k points a side. It was really good fun and my orruks performed like a dream (although I think they should have done a little more damage, yay for statistics compared to actual rolling). In the end chaos overcame the combined forces of order, destruction and death but it was such a fun game that it didn't really matter. Anyway here are a couple of photos of set up and the game.
Any way that is all from today, I will try and get another post written up this week to go out next week looking at my army for October as well as some thoughts about other projects I want to do.
